  • 61 Pages
  • Primary Research Group
1 of 4

This 61-page report looks closely at academic library activity to support open access.  The study gives highly precise data on librarian perceptions of faculty support for open access, and for library activities in peer review, open access publishing and other ventures and activity to support open access, including the payment of author fees and development of institutional digital repositories.  The study helps its readers to answer questions such as:  What percentage of libraries are active in helping to develop peer-review networks?  How much do libraries spend on author fees?  How many themselves publish open access journals? What percentage of faculty routinely deposit their scholarly articles in the institutional digital repository? How effective have librarians been in promoting the repository to faculty? How do librarians evaluate the current effectiveness of future probably impact of open access?  How do librarians view the level of support that they are getting from university management on open access issues? How many staff positions are largely devoted to various specified open access activities?

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

  • Public colleges were significantly more likely than private ones to report support from university or college administration for open access initiatives.
  • 25% of respondents from research universities reported more than just modest progress over the past two years in convincing faculty to deposit their research articles into institutional digital repositories.
  • 13.64% of the MA/PHD level colleges and universities in the sample published their own open access journals.
  • Nearly 24% of respondents from institutions with an enrolment of greater than 10,000 FTE were active in developing peer-review networks for open access publications.
  • Data in the report is broken out by size and type of institution, by tuition level, for public and private institutions and by other useful variables.
