International Survey of Medical & Other Life Sciences Faculty: Accessing Scholarly & Scientific Journals
The report presents data from a survey of 180 medical and life sciences faculty from more than 50 research universities and medical schools in the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK and Ireland. The study gives highly detailed data on how faculty access scholarly and scientific journals, including data on preferences for paper or print journals, use of Google Scholar, pre-print services and digital repositories. The report also reports on the frequency of asking librarians to add new journal titles, and on satisfaction levels with access to secondary data that supports scientific findings but may not be actually part of the text of a journal article.
Data is broken out by more than 10 criteria, and is presented separately for public and private universities, by age, gender, academic title, country, academic field, university ranking, level of tuition and other variables.
Primary Research Group publishes research reports, surveys, and benchmarking studies for businesses, colleges, libraries, law firms, hospitals, museums, and other institutions. Based on substantial primary and secondary research, our benchmarking studies allow institutions to compare their budgets, managerial decisions, technology purchases, and strategic visions to those of their peers.
