C. Sean Burns (Ph.D., 2013, University of Missouri) is an assistant professor in the School of Information Science at the University of Kentucky.

Dr. Burns's particular curiosity is with how the creation of information, where that specifically applies to knowledge management practices, and the production and dissemination of information, where that refers to authorship, peer review, information storage and retrieval, and other social and technological elements, shape these expectations and practices.
