International Survey of Research University Faculty: Use of Academic Journals

Jan 2017| PRG161A| Primary Research Group

Report Highlights

This 67-page study presents data from a survey of 512 academics from 55 research universities in the USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The report gives its readers a good idea of how scholars feel about the need for perpetual access to journal titles in online formats, their preferences regarding print vs. online journal formats, their need for new journal titles, the extent to which their library collections satisfy their current needs and the degree to which scholars find the materials that they need in their library’s existing journal collection. The study also looks at the impact of Google Scholar on scholarly journal information use.

Data in the report is broken out by more than 10 criteria including but not limited to: country of origin of faculty member (with separate data for the USA, Canada, UK/Ireland and Australia), age and gender of faculty member, academic field, size of university, academic title or position, world university ranking, and many other useful variables.
