Introduction: Richard James, USA

2 August, 2019

My name is Richard James, and I'm a librarian for the University of Pennsylvania who works with our School of Nursing and with nurses in our health system.

I'm very interested in expanding access to health information and in improving health literacy. For a number of years I've been a contributor to WikiProject: Medicine, and I am an associate editor for the Directory of Open Access Journals ( where I process new applications for listing and work with publishers to meet DOAJ best-practice OA publishing standards.
