A Comparison of Subject and Institutional Repositories in Self-Archiving Practices
Xia, Jingfeng
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v34 n6 p489-495 Nov 2008
The disciplinary culture theory presumes that if a scholar has been familiar with self-archiving through an existing subject-based repository, this scholar will be more enthusiastic about contributing his/her research to an institutional repository than one who has not had the experience. To test the theory, this article examines self-archiving practices of a group of physicists in both a subject repository and an institutional repository. It does not find a correlation between a disciplinary culture and self-archiving practices. (Contains 3 figures and 2 tables.)
