Heather Soyka earned her doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh iSchool. Before joining the faculty at Kent State, she held a postdoctoral fellowship with DataONE, a project funded by the National Science Foundation that is concerned with open access and use of multi-national, multi-scale environmental and ecological science data. Most recently, her work examines the reproducibility of community engagement and other recordkeeping factors relevant to the sustainability of structures for research data sharing and reuse. Her teaching areas include archives, records management, and preservation.
