Shining a green light on ideas about access

For-profit publisher Emerald is surveying academics

It wants, “to understand how academia is pushing to drive societal change through the research it creates, and how changes to publishing practices have accelerated this or present challenges that need addressing.”

There are also questions which might indicate Emerald’s plans.

Thus, the company asks whether responders want to, make their published work green open access, with links to supporting datasets, and whether they would publish “non-traditional content” if there are “rewards mechanisms.”

Emerald also asks if researchers would like, “better tracking of potential social impact at the start of a research project.”
