Mind the gap: 2013 Wiley survey reveals generational differences in authors’ open access views and experience
Warne, Verity

PublishedOctober 2013
PublisherWiley

ABSTRACT
We have just announced the results of our 2013 author survey on open access, with over 8,000 respondents from across Wiley’s journal portfolio. The desire of authors to publish in high-quality, respected journals with a good Impact Factor remains consistent with our 2012 open access survey findings. However, the 2013 survey sheds new light on differences between early career researchers (which we define as respondents between the ages of 26-44 with less than 15 years of research experience) and more established colleagues in their opinions on quality and licenses, and the funding available to them.
