Why choose me?


I have an in-depth, active and long-established understanding of the scholarly information community that distinguishes the solutions I provide from those of general market research agencies.  Removing the need to “learn” afresh about the scholarly information landscape means all of my energies are focused on offering an informed, tailored and personal approach to each project.  This approach, along with a genuine commitment to ensuring a deep understanding of each client’s business need, is at the heart of my business.  The goal for every project is to exceed expectations via delivery of high quality, usable results and recommendations, to deadline and to budget every time.




I specialise in services for the scholarly information community. This encompasses all players including, but not limited to: academic publishers; academic, corporate and medical libraries; higher and further education institutions; scholarly and professional societies; systems vendors and agents.

How I work 

A good conversation can be an illuminating experience, often essential in deciding whether a project is truly required or to scope out the stages and best approach.


My method usually involves a good discussion at the beginning and the end of the process to ensure I understand your needs and that you fully understand the results delivered and can ask any questions necessary to make the findings as useful as possible.
