About Jere
As a scholarly communications librarian, I promote and support open access publishing practices at IUPUI. These include the IUPUI Open Access Policy, as well as the library's open access publishing fund, open journal system and institutional repository initiatives. In addition to advocating for new forms of scholarly communications, I provide education and consultation services relevant to authorship, metrics for impact, fair use and authors' rights. I also serve as a subject liaison for the IUPUI School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Prior to joining University Library, I worked as an embedded librarian in the IU Center for Bioethics, where I managed a special collection of bioethics resources while collaborating on information ethics, research ethics, community engagement and health policy projects.

Abstract

Access to scholarship in the health sciences has greatly increased in the last decade. The adoption of the 2008 U.S. National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy and the launch of successful open access journals in health sciences have done much to move the exchange of scholarship beyond the subscription-only model. One might assume, therefore, that scholars publishing in the health sciences would be more supportive of these changes. However, the results of this survey of attitudes on a campus with a large medical faculty show that health science respondents were uncertain of the value of recent changes in the scholarly communication system.
