The Optical Society (OSA) is recruiting for a Director of Business & Content Intelligence in our Publishing Department to lead and coordinate the publishing team's efforts to obtain, analyze, and report on content and data and to then provide actionable recommendations that help us to better understand our business and drive business development and/or portfolio growth.
The Director draws on his/her experience within the scholarly publishing industry and on appropriate technologies to interrogate the content and provide credible analysis on aspects such as topical gap analysis, author-citation networks, and content usage and/or abuse to help OSA Publishing better understand its market share, author behavior, topical and/or funding penetration, content download patterns (including download abuse), and other factors.
The Director uses both internal and external data sources (such as MarkLogic, OSA's peer review system, and the Web of Science) along with techniques such as semantic enrichment and data visualization to provide insights. The Director maintains a thorough knowledge of the publishing department policies, strategy, and data practices to represent OSA Publishing information accurately and contextually to external parties or to other OSA departments.
