Faculty Perceptions of Open Access Author Fees: A Case Study at Two UniversitiesTaylor & Francis Library Workshops (2014)
AbstractIn the fall of 2013, librarians at Cornell University and Syracuse University surveyed STEM faculty about open access author fees. While few authors had decided against publishing in an open access journal due to the author fee requirement, results showed skepticism towards the quality of open access titles, opposition to paying fees from their own funds, and a lack of understanding of how university resources such as library subscriptions are funded. The speaker will take the participants through the case study results and discuss opportunities for librarians and publishers to collaborate on increasing awareness and participation in open access.
