International Survey of Research University Faculty: Use of Institutional Digital Repositories
The study presents data about use of institutional digital repositories by more than 500 faculty at 55 research universities from the United States, Canada, Australia, the UK and Ireland.
The study provides extensive data on the tendency to deposit, uses of access data generated by the repositories, success of outreach by librarians, faculty attitudes towards institutional repositories and open access, and their suggestions for repository management. 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.
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.
