The Survey of Higher Education Faculty: Use of Digital Repositories and Views on Open Access


This report presents data on how higher education faculty in the United States and Canada view the growing digital repository/open access movement.  The report helps to answer questions such as: Who cooperates with requests from librarians and who does not?  Who has been approached by librarians to contribute articles to repositories?  Who among faculty sypathizes with the aims of open access? How many scholars have had a publication fee paid for them by their library, college or academic department?  How many and which faculty understand the terms digital repository or open access as they are used in an academic library context?

Data is presented in the aggregate and for 12 criteria including academic field, size of college, type of college, academic title and other factors.
