University survey on open access publishing

In recent years, open access publishing and the institutional repository have become significant developments for academic staff and researchers. At Loughborough, the Library and the Research Office are jointly undertaking a study exploring University attitudes to open access etc. The findings from this study will be used to further develop appropriate help and support for University academic staff.

It would be very helpful if you could find 5 minutes to complete the online questionnaire https://www.survey.lboro.ac.uk/openaccess/

It will be available between the 23rd May 2011 and the 6th June 2011. The questionnaire allows people to be entered into a draw for two £50 Amazon vouchers. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Dr Graham Walton (tel: 22 2355 or e-mail; j.g.walton@lboro.ac.uk). This study is part of a nationwide initiative to gauge researchers’ attitudes to open access etc. that is being overseen by the United Kingdom Council for Research Repositories.
