OA and IRs? A survey for Faculty and Researchers!February 12th, 2014
Although the annual global event known as Open Access Week is now several months behind us, the University Libraries is interested in keeping the “open access” conversation going all year long.
In 2011, we surveyed UT faculty, GAs/TAs, and researchers on their perceptions of and experiences with open access (OA) scholarship, research and publishing. As a follow-up to that survey we would like to invite you to participate again.
This new, IRB-approved survey is much the same as our previous one, with the exception of an additional section on institutional repositories (IRs). With the University Libraries well on its way to launching a new IR later this spring, we would especially like to give faculty and researchers an opportunity to weigh in with their visions for a successful and robust repository at UT. For further reading about IRs, please visit: http://sparc.arl.org/theme/repositories.
We hereby invite faculty, researchers and GAs/TAs to take approximately ten minutes out of their day to complete our survey. You may also opt in for a random prize drawing!
We thank you in advance for your participation and interest! The survey will remain up through February.
