Scholarly communication through open access. Researchers' attitudes towards open access publishing in odontological research (English)
Abstract [en]

Open access has played a significant part in the development of scholarly communication. Today, several research funding agencies around the world requires that the results of the research it supports must be published open access where the underlying idea is that publicly funded research should be free and available to all users. The purpose of this thesis is to discuss the issue of open access publishing from the perspective of researchers in the field of odontology, focused on their attitudes, behaviors and publishing experiences with open access. Through a qualitative interview study with five odontological researchers, the results have been compared to previous studies on researchers' attitudes and experiences with open access. The results show that both knowledge and experience with open access publishing is fairly low among the participating scientists. Generally, a positive attitude towards open access in other research areas can be identified among odontological researchers, but when it comes to publishing within their own discipline open access is considered to be insignificant, so due to the availability of journals among the researchers considered to be adequate to cover their information needs. The results also identifies a negative view of open access publishing through institutional repositories, as these are not considered to add any value to their career development. A quantitative study would have given a more general view of researchers' attitudes and experiences of open access publishing. The results of this paper should therefore not be generalized and considered as representative of all researchers within the odontological research discipline.
