Tasha Mellins-Cohen

After two decades in scholarly publishing, Tasha is now an independent publishing consultant.

Having worked with society and commercial publishers, Tasha has a deep appreciation for the changing pressures on publishers, funders, researchers, and research institutions and uses that to partner with publishers to develop data-driven business models that will allow them to achieve a sustainable transition to open access.

Believing that we must take responsibility for the changes we wish to see in our industry, she is an active participant in the scholarly publishing community as a member of the COUNTER Executive Committee and regularly volunteers time to Jisc, UKSG, OASPA, and other industry bodies.
