Anthony Watkinson was an ecclesiastical historian by training and then spent three years as a scholarly librarian. From 1971 to 2010 he worked as a scholarly publisher in senior management positions in a number of companies and organisations including Academic Press, Oxford University Press, and Chapman & Hall mainly in science and medical publishing.

Before his appointment at UCL he was a visiting professor at City University London where he was one of the founders of the CIBER research group – now at UCL. His central interest is in the transition between scholarly communication in print and scholarly communication in digital form and with the interactions between different players in the information chain finding their feet in the digital environment. He has written on Electronic Solutions to the Problems of Monograph Publishing, Securing Authenticity of Scholarly Paternity and Integrity and most recently on Open Access with special reference to funding models. At UCL he has been the organiser of a number of events including the UCL Bloomsbury conferences. The latest conference was on data and the role of the information professional.
