My name is Stuart Lawson I'm a London-based librarian and researcher.

I'm interested in helping to share knowledge by combining the efforts of Wikipedia and the academic community. As an advocate of open access publishing, I would like to help find ways to integrate the benefits of open access with Wikipedia.

One way in which I'm trying to do this is by working as Open Access Community Liaison for the Wikimania 2014 conference in London. If you're interested in getting involved, please email me at, leave a message on my talk page, or visit the conference wiki.

I'm active on WikiProject Open Access and WikiProject Open.
