A recent survey of authors by Taylor and Francis reveals growing acceptance of open access publishing; however, Creative Commons licensing may still pose a problem.
A neat summation of Taylor and Francis’ recent OA survey.
This is particularly interesting:
The last question that caught my attention was to have authors rate the importance of services they expect with open access publishing (Q13). Personally, I don’t feel that any of these questions are limited to open access per se; nevertheless, they seem to reaffirm what most authors want from journal publication:
- Rigorous peer review
- Rapid publication of my paper
- Rapid peer review
- Promotion of my paper post-publication
- Automated deposit of my paper (Author Accepted Version) into a repository of my choice
- Provision of usage and citation figures at the article level
- Detailed guidance on how I can increase the visibility of my paper
- Pre-peer review services such as language polishing, matching my paper to a journal, and / or formatting my paper to journal style
- Provision of alt-metrics (such as Altmetric or ImpactStory)
Thanks to Leanne for the heads-up
