David Stuart

Writer, Researcher, and Consultant



My latest book Web Metrics for Library and Information Professionals is out soon!!

 Previous works include: From Web 2.0 to Semantic Search and Social Media: Experiences of the pharmaceutical industry; and Facilitating access to the web of data: a guide for librarians.

 I regularly write for a wide range of publications, from professional and academic journals to ghost-written content for professional blog sites. My writing covers a wide range of topics - library and information science, social media, and the web of data. Professional journals I have written for include The Social Media Monthly, Research Information, Online, JISC Inform, and VIP.

A full list of my publications can be found on my In the Media and Publications web pages.



I am currently a researcher at the Centre for E-Research, King's College London, and my research interests are in the areas of library and information management, webometrics, social media, and the semantic web.


I have consulted for individuals and organisations of various sizes. From providing the European Commission with an overview of different research areas on the web, to helping a Member of Parliament engage more effectively with his constituents. The majority of my consultancy work, however, has been focused on helping various businesses embrace social media for the promotion of their products and services

 I am currently also a member of the RIN Consultative Group for Librarianship and Information Science.



On my allotment

I am also an honorary research fellow in the Statistical Cybermetrics Research Group at the University of Wolverhampton, where I previously worked as Web 2.0 Research Fellow after gaining my PhD in webometrics.
