Dr. Mary Anne Kennan Australia

She is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Information Studies at CSU and a Visiting Fellow at the School of Information Systems, Technology and Management, Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales. Her research interests are interdisciplinary. Her Ph.D. focused on scholarly communication, institutional repositories, and open access. Building on this, her research is moving into the broader area of e-research and research data management, sharing and collaboration - growing areas of concern for information scientists, sociologists, academic and research librarians, and information technologists. Related to, and having some synergies with, openness is the concept of participation and as such Mary Anne is also interested in e-participation, specifically where it is related to information and social inclusion. Methodologically mostly an interpretivist with a preference for qualitative methods, she has conducted research using surveys, content analyses and other quantitative methods.
