Annual Benchmarking Survey
One of the questions we aim to answer during the project is how do perceptions of open access monograph publication change among participants during the project? This question relates specifically to the members of our Steering Group and the authors of the titles in the pilot. Through an annual benchmarking survey we will explore if their attitudes and perceptions towards open access publishing change as the project progresses.
This presentation reports the findings of our baseline survey of steering group members and participating authors to explore the effect that participating in the project has upon their views of open access monograph publishing.
The survey was carried out between November 2011 and February 2012. The next iteration will be carried out in November 2012, once the project participants have seen the first year’s sales and usage data.
