101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication - JHU

JHU Researchers: Take the 101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication Survey

Your librarians want to know what tools you use so that we can optimize library services and resources to better serve your needs. Please take the 101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication survey, developed at Utrecht University. Librarians there are engaged in an ongoing effort to chart the evolving landscape of scholarly communication. This international survey will investigate how tool usage varies by field, country and position. The survey will run until February 2016.

Each JHU campus has a different survey URL, so we can distinguish behaviors at the different campuses. Please choose the campus you identify with the most.

  • Making data accessible to and usable by all.
  • Copyright and its application to digital content in academic settings.
  • Authors want to retain more of their copyrights, or transfer some to their institution.
  • The digital humanities and how it will change humanities research.
  • Changes to the journal article as the container of choice for information.
  • Open textbooks.
