|dc.description.abstract||This poster was presented at The Ontario Ecology, Ethology, and Evolution Colloquium, May 13-15, 2015 at York University, Faculty of Science. https://www.uoguelph.ca/ses/news/call-abstracts-oe3c-2015 The scientific publishing landscape is shifting. Research funders increasingly require raw data to be deposited into Open Access (OA) subject repositories as a condition of publishing in both pay-walled and open access peer-reviewed journals. As university libraries face mounting journal subscription costs, they have become leading supporters of OA journals. University-based Institutional Repositories (digital archives) are Open Access and their content is prioritized by Google searches. They provide highly stable urls for digital content. Research published in open access journals and made available through open access archives such as institutional repositories circulates more rapidly & widely & gains more citations. We investigated how aware York University’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) community is, about the benefits of Open Access, including Institutional Repositories (IR).||en_US|
