Participate in the IGI Global Annual Academic Publishing Trends & Open Access Survey 2024

Hershey, PA -- April 24, 2024. During the past few years, academic research and publishing has faced many disruptions and challenges including predatory publishing, transparency in metrics, the push for open access, and now recently, the greater prevalence of Artificial Intelligence. Now in its second year, the IGI Global Annual Academic Publishing Trends & Open Access Survey 2024 seeks to create a realistic outlook on problems faced by the academic community and their potential solutions.

In less than five minutes, researchers, librarians, and academicians every where can lend their voices to initiate change within academic research and publishing by participating in this survey. The survey takes about three to five minutes to complete.

Complete the Survey

The survey is designed to serve as a vessel for the global academic community to better understand the current challenges and opportunities facing researchers and their institutions. It is expected that the answers and opinions voiced via the survey will reflect upon the current state of research and publishing, providing future directions for the research community, institutions, and the academic publishing industry. Participants of the survey will have the ability to share their views on the impacts of:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Open Access
  • Peer Review Processes
  • Metrics
  • General Ethics
  • Current and Forthcoming Research Trends

"It is our intention that this survey will provide us with invaluable insights into the challenges that researchers and librarians are currently facing, as well as the publishing opportunities that they would like to be offered," states Melissa Wagner, Vice President of Editorial at IGI Global. "In better understanding their thoughts on the trends and controversies currently disrupting the industry, we will be able to do our part to ensure that we are moving in a direction that can better support them and their research."

The survey will officially close June 30, 2024 (updated). Respondents of the survey will remain anonymous, and a summary of the findings will be shared and made freely accessible to all. To ensure receipt of the summary of the survey results, please feel free to sign up for IGI Global's Newsletter here.
