Value creation in scholarly community: The role of open access publications

EasyChair Preprint no. 471

8 pagesDate: August 30, 2018


Open Access (OA) is an innovative form of scholarly communication in the digital environment. But the process of
creating values for author and readers through OA is vague. The study demonstrates OA values among the scholarly
community. The finding is based on primary data collected from 214 academic authors for determining perceptions
of OA among authors. Besides, secondary data from journal articles, project proposals, research reports, and
conference proceedings were reviewed for analyzing OA impact among readers. Results show that OA provide value
for authors through improved visibility and citation; while improved access, linking global experts and advancing
knowledge for readers.

Keyphrases: Academic publication, open access publication, scholarly communication, value creation
