New findings from Nature Publishing Group survey

Like Comment

A survey of 22,000 academic researchers by Nature Publishing Group (NPG) and Palgrave Macmillan has found that a decreasing number of authors are concerned about perceptions of the quality of open access publications.

In 2014, 40% of scientists who had not published open access in the last three years said "I am concerned about perceptions of the quality of Open Access publications." But this year, only 27% said they were concerned.
