The UC Office of Scholarly Communication releases “Faculty Attitudes and Behaviors Regarding Scholarly Communication: Survey Findings from the University Of California,” which analyzes over 1,100 survey responses representative of all disciplines and tenure-track faculty ranks. The survey reveals deep concern about the health of scholarly communication, especially in its relationship to promotion and tenure. The report is timed to inform University wide discussions about strategic responses to challenges and opportunities in the evolution of scholarly publishing and communication. The survey also provides important insight into how the University’s eScholarship publishing services (including those offered in partnership with the UC Press) can meet faculty needs.
The University of California’s eScholarship Repository announces its new “postprint” service. UC faculty who have retained the appropriate copyrights or who obtain permission from their publishers can easily deposit previously published articles into this publicly accessible online repository. The postprints are fully searchable, available free of charge, and are persistently maintained in a centrally managed database. The established popularity of the repository, with more than one million full-text downloads of content since 2002, makes it an ideal venue for faculty to reach new audiences of researchers.
