Primary Research Group has published the Survey of US Higher Education
Faculty 2023, Use of Digital Repositories, ISBN 979-8-88517-112-0
This study looks at how 725 faculty from nearly 500 US colleges and
universities are using their own and other digital repositories. The study
gives detailed data on the incidence and extent of use of the scholars own
institution’s digital repository, and use of repositories from other
institutions. Data is broken out by 12 personal and institutional
variables including size, type or Carnegie class, tuition level and
public/private status of the participant’s affiliated institution, as well
as personal characteristics such as academic field, tenure status, academic
title, gender, income and other variables. The study helps its readers to
answer questions such as: who is depositing their journal articles in
repositories and how often? Who is using the repositories of other
institutions in their research? Which scholars are having publication fees
paid for them on their behalf by libraries, academic departments and other
sponsors? How satisfied are scholars with their college or university’s
open access and digital repository policies? How important is open access
to them and how has it impacted their careers?
Just a few of this 76-page report’s many findings are:
• Faculty aged 40-49 were more likely than their older or younger peers to
put their research into a repository.
• The tendency to place publications in repositories was closely and
positively related to a researchers’ personal income.
• The more prestigious a faculty member’s title, the greater the likelihood
that a publication fee had ever been paid on the faculty member’s behalf.
