Resumo(s)O presente relatório apresenta os resultados do estudo que os Serviços de Documentação da Universidade do Minho desenvolveram junto dos investigadores que trabalham em Portugal, no sentido de recolher informações relativamente às suas opiniões, atitude e práticas relacionadas com o acesso aberto. Por acesso aberto (open access ou acesso livre), entende-se a disponibilização livre na Internet de literatura de caráter científico ou académico permitindo a qualquer utilizador aceder e utilizar o texto integral dos documentos. O estudo, enquadrado no âmbito dos projetos Open Access desenvolvidos nos Serviços de Documentação, nomeadamente os projetos europeus MedOANet, OpenAIRE e OpenAIREplus, foi realizado através de inquérito por questionário. Foi desenvolvida uma ampla divulgação do questionário, através de correio eletrónico para coordenadores e participantes de projetos financiados pelo 7º Programa-Quadro da Comissão Europeia e pela FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, e ainda através de canais de comunicação institucional de universidades, politécnicos e outras instituições de investigação. O questionário foi respondido, exclusivamente via web com recurso à plataforma LimeSurvey, entre 19 de junho e 27 de julho de 2012, tendo sido recolhidas 1249 respostas completas.
This report presents the results from the survey, conducted by Minho University Documentation Services (SDUM), to collect information about the views, opinions, attitudes and practices of Portuguese researchers regarding Open Access (OA). The survey, developed in the framework of SDUM’s participation in several OA related projects (OpenAIRE an OpenAIREplus, MedOANet and RCAAP), was conducted in june and july 2012, and collected 1249 complete replies. The vast majority of respondents (83%) had already participated in research projects funded by FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, the Portuguese public research funder), while just 30% taken part in FP7 (European 7th Framework Program) projects. Almost all (97%) respondents stated they already knew and understood the concept of Open Access. The vast majority considered that OA increases dissemination of and access to research results (92%), will change scholarly communication in their own research field in the coming years (78%) and increases the number of citations to publications (77%). Asked about the principle of Open Access to publicly funded publications, 92% of respondents Fully Agreed or Agreed, and only 3% Disagreed or Fully Disagreed. The knowledge about the FP7 Open Access pilot from the European Commission and ERC (European Research Council), implemented through OpenAIRE, has resulted to be low, with just 18% of respondents overall stating their awareness, and no more than 21% even for those with experience on FP7 projects participation. When asked about the possibility of an Open Access mandate from FCT, 83% expressed agreement, and 8% disagreement. When asked how they would react to such a mandate from the national funder, 77% replied they would fully and easily comply, 8% would reluctantly comply, 14% would partially comply and 1% would not comply at all. When asked about the existence of OA mandates from their research institutions, 55% replied that there weren’t such policies, 32% stated they didn’t know, and 13% replied there was an OA policy at their own institution. This last group was also asked about their compliance with those mandates, and 77% stated they fully and easily complied and just 1% replied they didn’t comply at all. Questioned about the best way to comply with OA mandates, 50% indicated the combination of repository deposition and publication in an OA journal, 29% repository deposition only and 16% publication on an Open Access journal only. Participants were also surveyed about the concept of open access to research data, and 72% of the respondents agreed (41% Fully Agree and 31%Agree), while 17% disagreed (12% Disagree and 5% Fully Disagree). Most of the respondents (70%) had already provided Open Access to publications they authored: 32% only through repository deposition, 24% only through OA journal articles, and 14% had already used both ways. From those who had provided some form of Open Access 63% had at least one publication deposited in an institutional repository, while just 21% had a publication deposited into a subject repository. From the answers received we can concluded that Open Access is widely known (97%) and supported (92%) by the Portuguese research community. However, there is a relevant gap between knowledge and support (from more than 90% of researchers) and the practice of Open Access (declared by only 70%). There is also a very favorable opinion on Open Access mandates from research funders (83% regarding an eventual FCT policy) and research institutions. But the results also provide evidence for the lack of awareness from researchers about mandates already in place from funders (like the EC FP7 OA pilot) and institutions. So, there is again a gap between opinion and actual information and practice regarding policies.
