• Self-Archiving as an Emergent Scholarly Practice: An Assessment of Self-Archiving in Institutional Repositories

      Xia, Jingfeng; Dalbello, Marija (2007)
      This research focuses on faculty perceptions of repositories to build an understanding of the perceptions that contribute to the success and sustainability of self-archiving in institutional repositories and develop criteria for practice. In addition to identifying the emergent cultures of self-archiving held by the faculty, we develop objective measures of success and sustainability of institutional repositories based on an empirical study of a significant sample of repositories nationwide and internationally.
