Open Access in the field of engineering: Survey [12.10.2018]

The project OpenIng studies scientific publication behaviour in the field of engineering in the German-speaking countries. Particular emphasis is on the legal, organisational, reputational, and financial barriers to open-access publishing and the development of open educational resources.

Findings of the project will help to develop new (technical) support services and communication strategies. 

Scientists in engineering (mechanical engineering and production technology, process engineering, materials science and material engineering, information science, system engineering and electrical engineering as well as civil engineering/architecture are invited to take part in the survey before December 15, 2018. 

The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete. On the survey's welcome page, you can change the survey language to English.
