Open Access Survey in UK

Thomas Eger and Marc Scheufen, researchers from the University of Hamburg, are conducting a survey on the experience of academic scholars with, and their perception of, open access publishing. One of their objectives is to examine the commonalities and differences between the academic disciplines.

Surveys have already been conducted in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Benelux, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, India, Brazil, and Egypt.

They are now, in co-operation with Prof. Guido Westkamp from the Queen Mary University of London, extending the survey to British universities. 

If you would like to participate in the survey, please complete the questionnaire.  It is estimated that this will take about 10 minutes.  Your participation will help to provide valuable information regarding the recent discussion on how to organize the dissemination of academic publications in a globalized and digital knowledge society.
