Catch up on our latest content and events relevant to your role, whether you're responsible for content purchasing, running a research team or focusing on information strategy.


Whether you're responsible for information strategy, content purchasing or managing a research team, you'll find Jinfo's content and events essential for you.

Our "Jinfo for" blogs address these three roles in turn, complete with astute observations on key challenges and opportunities from our director of research and a curated list of content and events from that quarter.

We also offer monthly Community sessions to support our key roles. These confidential discussion forums offer an unmatched opportunity to interact with peers across industries and countries, with conversations based on the key issues that matter to your role.


Content purchasing 

Managing contracts, copyright, purchasing data licences, gaining budget approvals... this is perhaps the most pressured time of year if you're responsible for managing and licensing content and tools. 

Our blog, "Jinfo for content purchasing", is packed with hotlinks to useful webinars and upcoming Community sessions, plus articles and reports pertinent to your role. It also features highlights from Jinfo's director of research, Robin Neidorf, on aspects from portfolio management to demonstrating value.

Don't miss our Community session on 5th February 2019, "Jinfo for content purchasing".


Optimising your research service

Taking the time to analyse your workflow, processes and informal practices can be difficult to justify but the dividends are likely to be great. 

Check out our blog, "Jinfo for optimising your research service", to find out more about workflow analysis and optimisation, read our model for workflow optimisation, and click on links to curated content relevant to your key challenges.

Information strategy

Reviewing your service against the best performing information centres or those in your sector is an oft-desired part of best practice but has been difficult to achieve. 

In "Jinfo for information strategy", Robin Neidorf explains how Jinfo's benchmarking research (now in year 2) can help you develop frameworks and establish key metrics to kick start your own benchmarking process.
