Scholarly Communication at Wake Forest University

Innovations in Scholarly Communication survey image.

In 2015-2016, Jeroen Bosman and Bianca Kramer, both at Utrecht University Library, administered the Innovations in Scholarly Communication survey in order to better understand the evolving scholarly communication landscape. Over 9 months, their survey collected more than 20,000 responses worldwide, assessing tool usage across 17 research activities in the scholarly communication cycle, as illustrated to the left. Wake Forest University was one of over 100 custom-URL partners to distribute the survey directly to local stakeholders.

62 faculty at Wake Forest University responded to the Innovations in Scholarly Communication survey, distributed to the Reynolda campus community from October 2015 to February 2016. This represents a 7.62% response rate for all Reynolda campus faculty (783 full- and part-time teaching faculty; 31 library faculty). Excluding library faculty, and using FTE rather than individuals, the response rate was 9.19% (53 responses; 576.5 FTE; source: WFU Institutional Research Fact Book 2015-2016).

This interactive dashboard showcases responses from the Wake Forest University community. Results can be filtered by discipline, research role, and career stage. Please note that not all respondents answered each question, so distributions will vary. Also, the "Explore" tab at the top will allow you to conduct your own detailed analysis of results. When you finish exploring Wake Forest University's responses, take a look at the results of the worldwide Innovations in Scholarly Communication dashboard at
