Kudos Shares Findings of Survey on Article Sharing

Kudos released the results of a survey it conducted in partnership with 10 publishers. The 7,500-plus respondents revealed their current article-sharing behaviors and showed that usage of scholarly collaboration networks such as ResearchGate are widespread, thanks to the ease of accessing full-text content, as well as, to a lesser extent, finding and connecting with other researchers. Additional survey results include the following:
  • 57% of respondents indicated that they use scholarly collaboration networks to upload their own work, and 66% use such sites to access otherwise inaccessible content. …
  • Of those respondents using ResearchGate, 66% indicated that they use the site at least weekly. …
  • 83% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that publisher/journal copyright and sharing policies should be respected, but 60% agreed or strongly agreed that they should be allowed to upload articles regardless of publisher/journal policies; 21% didn’t realize publisher/journal copyright or policies might apply when they are sharing their work in scholarly collaboration networks.
