Investigating Open Access Attitudes by Discipline at Mississippi State University
Powers, Amanda Clay
In educating ourselves about Open Access (OA) issues, we found that attitudes vary dramatically by discipline at Mississippi State University. To provide relevant educational programming on OA, we developed an Open Access Assessment Tool (based on a UMN Environmental Scan) for library liaisons to investigate discipline-level investment in and attitudes towards OA. This workshop will demonstrate the use of this three-step process to review top journals, repositories, associations and department-level sentiment toward OA.
