Publishing in Open Access Education Journals: The Authors' Perspectives
Coonin, Bryna; Younce, Leigh M.
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v29 n2 p118-132 2010
Open access publishing is now an accepted method of scholarly communication. However, the greatest traction for open access publishing thus far has been in the sciences. Penetration of open access publishing has been much slower among the social sciences. This study surveys 309 authors from recent issues of open access journals in education to determine why they choose to publish in open access journals and to gain insight into the ways publishing practices within the discipline itself impact the willingness of authors to engage in open access publishing. (Contains 7 figures.)
