Jeffrey Beall

I work as a librarian at Auraria Library, University of Colorado Denver, in Denver, Colorado.

An academic librarian for over 25 years, I have published extensively in the areas of metadata, full-text searching, and information retrieval.

My interest in scholarly open-access publishing began in 2009 when I reviewed the publisher Bentham Open in The Charleston Advisor, a journal that reviews electronic resources.

Previously, I served on the editorial board of Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, an experience that, in addition to my own research and writing, helped me learn a lot about scholarly communication. My service on this editorial board ended in December, 2012.

In 2012 I was awarded tenure and promoted to associate professor.

My email address is jeffrey.beall@ucdenver.edu.
