Description

Emily Ford is an associate professor and an urban & public affairs librarian at Portland State University Library in Portland, Oregon. She loves stories. She is curious to understand what makes people tick and how we can connect in community via lived experience. Although her research is focused on opening scholarly peer review, she views the peer-review system as one comprised of human experience stories. Her book, Stories of Open: Opening Peer Review through Narrative Inquiry, will be published by ACRL Press this Spring. When not immersed in stories, she is most likely found trail running, practicing yoga, or petting her cats and her pet rats.
