Publishing behavior and attitudes towards open access among scientists in the Czech Republic
Summary: The article sums up basic results from a questionnaire survey which took place in 2013–2014. The research focuses on the publication behaviour of Czech researchers and their attitudes towards open access. The methodology of the study was inspired by the SOAP research and the results are among the first data-based insights into our topic in the Czech Republic. The results show the increasing familiarity with the open access among Czech researchers, an optimistic attitude towards open access as well as inconclusive perception of the relationship between open access and the quality of published results.
Keywords: scientific publishing, open access, survey, publishing behavior
