Janneke Adema holds an MA in History, an MA in Philosophy (both University of Groningen) and an MA in Book and Digital Media Studies (Leiden University). She has been conducting research for the OAPEN project from 2008 to 2010. Her research for this project focused on user needs and publishing models concerning Open Access books in the Humanities and Social Sciences. At the moment she is doing a PhD in Media and Communication at Coventry University.
Her current research concentrates on the influence of online information transmission on research practices within the Humanities and on the way the monograph, as an important form of scholarly communication in this field, is being produced and shaped. She will investigate the possibility of the fusion or remix of media in the process of Humanities knowledge production to explore potential new roles and futures for the monograph as a form of scholarly communication on the web.
