This study seeks to understand the current publishing behaviours and attitudes of faculty, across all disciplines, at the U of S in response to the growing significance of OA publishing and archiving. The broad objective of this research is to discover what the current and emerging needs of U of S researchers are in order to determine if scholarly communications services are in demand here. And, if so, to provide an evidence-based foundation for the potential future development of such a program of services at the University Library.
