Reasons for Non-Compliance with an Institutional OA Policy
As the number of institutional open access policies increases, libraries and other academic units must figure out ways to facilitate faculty compliance. This poster shares initial results of a study tracking faculty responses to requests for articles, showing that the barrier to faculty compliance is more often due to issues related to alignment of self-archiving activities with existing research workflows than a rejection of open access. It is hoped that such work will prove useful for institutions to better align open access policy activities with research workflows.
