Marcel Wrzesinski

Marcel Wrzesinski is Open Access Officer at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society and head of the BMBF project “Sustainable journal financing through consortial support structures in small and interdisciplinary subjects: Scholar-led Plus“ (in cooperation with Knowledge Unlatched). He researches and develops consortial funding models in Germany and thus follows-up a key result of the DFG project “Innovative Open Access in the Small Sciences”.

Marcel studied philosophy, gender studies, European ethnology and folklore studies in Bochum, Berlin and Münster. Prior to his time at HIIG, he worked as an editor and led Open Access activities at the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (Giessen). Later, he became a research associate for a project concerning Open Access transformation in gender studies (Berlin), which was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). He lectured at the universities of Giessen, Cologne, Bochum, the Humboldt University Berlin and the New School for Social Research (New York City).

He is also an editor of the “Open Gender Journal”, co-speaker of the working group “Open Digital Gender Studies” of the German Gender Studies Association, and advises various research institutions on issues of Open Access and Open Science. In these capacities he mainly focuses on professionalizing, sustaining and networking Open Access in smaller scientific fields.
