Utan vägtullar på information highway. Vetenskaplig publicering i Open Access-tidskrifter : en intervjuundersökning med musikforskare
Sammanfattning: This thesis aims to explore how musicologists reason about publishing their articles in open-access journals. What is the challenge they face and what are the possibilities musicologists are concerned about? For the method I used open-ended and structured interviews based on four factors: trustworthiness, accessibility, reaching the readers and status of the publishing media. Musicologists are positive to the open-access concept and are willing to submit their papers to open-access journals. They think that the accessibility of the articles is going to increase when they publish them in open-access journals. Furthermore, in order to submit their articles to open-access journals, the musicologists expect that these journals have a peer-review system. Less than half of the musicologists want these journals to have high impact factor. The rest of them are not concerned about the status of the publishing media. Some of the musicologists thought they could reach more readers by means of the traditional printed journals, some thought they could do it better by open-access journals.
