Findings From Ithaka S+R's Latest U.S. Faculty Survey

Taylor & Francis shared the results of Ithaka S+R’s U.S. Faculty Survey 2021, which Taylor & Francis sponsored. There were nearly 8,000 respondents, 45% of whom are professors. Associate professors, assistant professors, adjunct professors, lecturers, and other instructors also answered the survey.

Its findings include that “[s]eventy percent of faculty aged 22 to 44 said they would like the traditional, subscription-based, publication model shifted to an open access model compared with 63 percent of faculty in the 44 to 54 age group and 57 percent of faculty in the 65 and older age group. ... Mostly faculty in the social sciences and sciences have this sentiment, compared to peers in other academic disciplines, the survey states.” In addition, “faculty members continue to be interested in an open access publication model and see their library as key in financially supporting open access infrastructure.”
