Dear Colleague,

Open access to scholarly journal articles is a topic of growing importance.
Open access enables free and immediate electronic access to a scholar's
work. Studies show that open access increases the impact of - and number of
citations to - work made accessible in this way.

We are interested in understanding scholars' views on open access publishing
and self-archiving and would very much like to hear your opinions. Please
would you help by completing the questionnaire at
http://www.keyperspectives.co.uk/OA/sarchiv.htm.  It will be used to inform
universities, research funders and scholars themselves of the state of play
and how open access is progressing.

Naturally, all responses will be treated as confidential and you may opt to
remain anonymous if you wish.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We do value your input and
advice.

Yours sincerely,

Alma Swan, PhD
