Newton’s First Law and ETDs: Scholarly Communication at a Liberal Arts University in Hong KongLibrary Conference Paper
Document TypeConference Paper
AbstractOpen Access electronic theses and dissertations are more and more common in universities. This Increase in visibility of early scholarship has prompted re-examination of the traditional publication process from researchers, librarians and post-graduate students. A number of recent studies have shed significant light on if an open access ETD will impact post-graduate students’ ability to publish findings derived from a thesis with an academic publisher. However, these studies have largely focused on publishers, researchers and post-graduates’ attitudes in the United Kingdom and North America. Two years after implementing an Open Access policy for ETDs at a university in East Asia, the author surveyed advisors of research post-graduates on their views regarding Open Access theses and their students’ future publishing prospects.
