What Do Undergraduate Students Know about Scholarly Communication? A Mixed Methods Study
Riehle, Catherine Fraser; Hensley, Merinda Kaye
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v17 n1 p145-178 Jan 2017
Amid movements that recognize undergraduate students as knowledge creators, transformative work is being done at the intersection of information literacy and scholarly communication. Absent from the literature so far is research related to students' perception and understanding of scholarly communication. This paper reports a mixed methods study at two major research universities in the United States, where undergraduate student researchers were surveyed and interviewed about their scholarly communication practices and perceptions. This work informs development of programming at the intersection of scholarly communication and information literacy in general, and for those involved with undergraduate research experiences in particular.
