Scholarly Publishing Across the Disciplines: Interviews with Geneseo Faculty
The fourth part of Milne Library’s ongoing series about Geneseo research and publishing practices is now available (PDF). Faculty value of scholarly collaboration, communications and output documents faculty collaborations in research and publishing; faculty’s publishing motivations and influences; and the scholarly communication and output practices amongst the Geneseo faculty interviewed.
About the series:
The Milne Library Scholarly Communications team and librarian liaisons for the campus academic departments interviewed 87 faculty members in one-on-one conversations during the academic year 2010-11 and part of academic year 2011-12. The results of these interviews were analyzed and documented in a series of reports which are on schedule for release from September 2013 – February 2014.
The interviews conducted with Geneseo faculty members were intended to be a survey of the current research and publishing practices on campus, giving us a glimpse of the issues affecting Geneseo faculty, including the changing scholarly publishing environment, digital and online scholarship, peer review, publishing with undergraduate researchers and open access.
The first three reports in the series document the issues and responses surrounding faculty and undergraduate students involved in research and publishing; the quickly changing environment surrounding digital scholarship and its value on campus and in the disciplines; and faculty participation in open access endeavors such as publishing in open access journals and self archiving of work. In particular, we look at ways in which the library may be able to meet the needs of new initiatives on campus.
