Renew Publishing Consultants Announces Participants in Research Study
Thirteen organizations are supporting Renew Publishing Consultants’ research on how worldwide readers discover academic content. They include the APA (American Psychological Association), Annual Reviews, Cambridge University Press, PLOS, the Royal Society of Chemistry, SAGE, the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology), and Wiley. According to the press release, this research project will explore “the very contentious issue of measuring perceptions of Sci-Hub and ResearchGate in discovery and delivery, and will also ask about how readers discover academic video content.” The research report and data will be available for free later in 2018.
