Generation Gap in Authors Open Access Views and Experience, Reveals Wiley Survey

“John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the results of its 2013 author survey on open access, with over eight thousand respondents from across Wiley’s journal portfolio. The survey is a follow up to Wiley’s 2012 open access author survey and is the second such survey conducted by Wiley. This year new sections were added including research funding and article licenses. Consistencies were seen between the 2012 and 2013 surveys in authors’ desire to publish in a high-quality, respected journal with a good Impact Factor, but the survey also shed light on differences between early career researchers respondents between the ages of 26-44 with less than 15 years of research experience and more established colleagues in their opinions on quality and licenses.  Differences were also seen across funding bodies and in the funding available for open access to different author groups.” (via Wiley)
