Library Faculty Publishing and Intellectual Property Issues: A Survey of Attitudes and Awareness
Carter, Howard; Snyder, Carolyn A.; Imre, Andrea
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v7 n1 p65-79 Jan 2007
Researchers from Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) surveyed faculty members from 10 academic research libraries to learn about scholarly publishing activities, attitudes, and policies. Areas of special interest included the effect of publishers' intellectual property policies and institutional promotion and tenure processes on library faculty publishing decisions. The library faculty members were also asked about their experience in negotiating for additional rights from publishers and their experience in self-archiving their research. The researchers wanted to determine if there were any correlation between a library faculty member's rank and tenure status and the number of peer-reviewed articles published in refereed journals. (Contains 6 figures and 28 notes.)
