Event Details

Uncovering researcher behaviours and engagement with Open Access

 A Joint JISC OA Good Practice Pathfinder Workshop for the Making Sense Project and the O2OA Project

Last  April the Hefce  report - Policy on open access in the post-2014 Research Excellence Framework (2014/7) highlighted the need for behaviour change if researchers are to engage with the OA agenda. One year on, what have institutions done to encourage behaviour change? 

Do you want to understand researchers better?

Do you want to learn new techniques to embed culture change and improve your services?

Come and hear about how you can use ethnography and behavioural change analysis to understand your researchers, analyse your current practices and achieve the behaviour change required.

 At this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about techniques and methodologies to investigate researcher behaviours
  • Share their own experiences and learn from others strategies for implementing open access
  • Gain practical experience of analysing and interpreting OA problems using intervention mapping
  • Be equipped with a range of tools to apply in their own institutions

Target Audience

Librarians, research managers and administrators involved in implementing open access in their institutions  We also welcome the participation of researchers who are able to share their thoughts on what OA means to them.
