I am an Associate Professor and the head of the Scholarly Communication Research Group in the Institute of Philosophy at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. Since 2015, I have been the chairman of the Young Scientists Council , i.e. an advisory board to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland. In 2016, I was awarded a Scholarship for Outstanding Young Scientists in Poland (2016–2019).
In my research, I focus on two major fields. The first one is research evaluation, in particular Open Science, scholarly communication, and academic publishing. The other field is philosophy of communication and communication metatheory. I am the author of two books in Polish: Theorizing Communication (2012) and Two Aspects of Communication. Foundations of Communication History (2015).
As part of my research, I try to go beyond the walls of the Academy. Therefore, I write popular science articles and essays. For many years, I have conducted seminars and workshops on scholarly communication.
Since 2010, I have been writing an academic blog entitled “Warsztat badacza” (“Scholar’s Workshop”), where I discuss scholarly communication, research evaluation, science policy, and other issues related to the daily work of researchers. Although I write only in Polish, my blog has over 30,000 unique readers per month.
Current Research Projects
Contemporary Polish Humanities in the face of the Challenges of Scientometrics (2014-2018)
I am the Principal Investigator of the project entitled Contemporary Polish Humanities in the face of the Challenges of Scientometric. The project is financed by the National Programme for the Development of Humanities in Poland.
European Network for Research Evaluation in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (2016–2020)
The challenge of the Action is to enable the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) to better demonstrate their true place in academia and society. To do so, the Action proposes to bring together different strands of work consecrated to SSH research evaluation, currently under development in different parts of Europe, in order to gain momentum, to exchange best practices and results, and to avoid unnecessary duplication. My role in the project: a member of the Management Committee and the Scientific Representative (Grant Holder Institution).
