Psychology of Open Access
In this episode, we talk about the psychology of publishing Open Access. What are the main factors for not choosing OA-publications, and how could institutions and policymakers better understand the choice of the researcher.
Organizational psychologist and ph.d. candidate Lars Moksness at the Tromsø school of Business and Economics at UIT – the Arctic University has published several papers on the issue.
Moksness’ study uses an integration of attitude and identity theory within a cross-sectional survey design. His sample consists of researchers in Norway and analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM) techniques.
