If you want to envision change to the current system of publication, you need to know what people think about where we are, and where we want to go with the future of scholarly publication. So, as part of our working group, today we are launching a survey of attitudes about scholarly publishing and communication by Ecologists, Evolutionary Biologists, and Earth & Environmental Scientists.
Our goal is to establish a baseline of your opinions on the current state of scholarly communication for our fields so as to highlight potential gaps and improvements.
Please, head on over and take the survey. We want your input. We’ll be using it both to write up a paper, and inform a few future projects from the group.
