This final report of the series examines the sourcing and scaling choices made by the four research universities regarding their acquisition of RDM capacity. What variables are being maximized in these decisions: efficiency/cost reduction? Reliability/trust? The choices that individual institutions make with respect to sourcing and scaling likely depend on a host of factors, including local staffing and infrastructure, availability of cooperatively sourced or nationally provisioned services and willingness to pay for commercially sourced solutions.

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

Although counts of tweets citing academic papers are used as an informal indicator of interest, little is known about who tweets academic papers and who uses Twitter to find scholarly information.

This study surveyed 1,912 users that have tweeted journal articles to ask about their scholarly-related Twitter uses.

Paths to Reference - How todays students use and find reference sources. - Oxford University Press | Higher education news for libraries and librarians | Scoop.it

Paths to Reference on the Academic Oxford University Press white paper.
