Dr Danny Kingsley (PhD) is an expert in developing strategy and policy in the higher education and research sector with extensive international experience, most recently in Europe and the UK. She is available for consultancy work with a particular focus on Open Research and research communication. Her work involves aspects of advocacy, professional development, research and communication through developing relationships with all levels of the scholarly communication landscape, from the individual researcher, to editors and publishers of journals and monographs, funding bodies, research institutions and government. She has written extensively and presented all over the world in this area.

Until May 2019 Danny worked as the Deputy Director of Cambridge University Libraries (Scholarly Communication & Research Services). The announcement of Cambridge's Position Statement on Open Research in February 2019 was the culmination of four years' work in this area. Danny took up the position of Head of Scholarly Communication at the University of Cambridge in January 2015 and oversaw all aspects of scholarly communication at the University, including compliance with funder open access policies, research data management, intellectual property, copyright and other areas.
