MAPPING SCHOLARS’ DECISION PROCESSES AND FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE
HOW THEY PUBLISH AND DISTRIBUTE THEIR WORK
Phillip M. Edwards
http://sils.unc.edu/~wildem/ASIST2007/Edwards_proposal.pdf

scholarly communication (includes informal scholarly comms and formal)
NT scholarly publishing (journal)
NT open access
NT formal writing & supplements (pre prints, working papers, etc)
NT Open access

- how do scholars decide where to publish their work
- how are these decisions influenced by priorities of publishers , libraries, institutions (maybe also community norms and social ?)
- how can these institutions better support “good” decisions by scholars?

ill-defined decision processes
Rules a la Merton, Hagstrom
Forms a la Garvey et al
Modes of access

lit on ill-defined decision processes (mintzberg, raisinghani theoret 1976)
- unstructured, strategic decision processes
- decision stimuli
- solution types
- identification phase (decision recognition routine, diagnosis routine)
- attribution theory (tetlock and levi, 1982)
- kelley’s vs. weiner’s dimensions of attribution theories
- from LIS literature many sources of influence on publishing decisions

- how do scholars traverse the landscape (make decisions related to their own productivity and impacts of potential outcomes)


rq1: at what stage of the research do they think of venues?
rq2: decision making routines, during the publishing lifetimes of a scholarly project?
rq3: how do scholars explain their publishing/distribution behaviors?

2 dept in one institution
- access to OA in their discipline
- their discipline doesn’t default to oa (physics I guess?)
(he’s picked one social science and one science)

critical decision interview method (like critical incident method but for decisions)
(by doing it after, what is lost?)

q audience: senior vs. junior
will look at and see how that matters

q audience: which disciplines?
bio and comms

q audience: maybe vertical with multiple
