Jennifer Howard

Senior Reporter (former)
The Chronicle of Higher Education

Jennifer Howard, who began writing for The Chronicle in 2005, covered publishing, scholarly communication, libraries, archives, digital humanities, humanities research, and technology. Many of her stories focused on the great digital shift, how publishers, librarians, and scholars are adapting, and how we read and write now.

She has written about the open-access movement and public access to published research, and about how researchers are experimenting with new ways to share, publish, and track their work.

Previously she worked as a contributing editor for The Washington Post’s book section. Before that she worked at The New York Review of Books and the Wilson Quarterly. Her essays and articles have appeared in Slate, Bookforum, the Boston Review, and the Washington Post’s Outlook section, among other publications. She has a master’s degree in English from the University of Virginia and a bachelor’s degree in history from Princeton University.
