Percentage of Journals[edit]

About 94% of peer-reviewed journals already endorse authors self-archiving preprint and/or postprint versions of their papers.

The source does not appear reliable. Certainly in my field (History research in France) the reaction mentioned is very rare. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Johncmullen1960 (talkcontribs)

One would think that is a WP:RS for self archiving! However, it could be phrased better: "About 91% of publishers surveyed...."
They have a list of publishers with policies & a means for submitting corrections--there's no reason to eliminate useful information because you have a different gut feeling. --Karnesky 13:31, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
I concur with Johncmullen1960; in my field (marketing) self-archiving does not appear to be widely practiced, let alone stimulated by publishers. It makes me question if there is a (strong) selection bias in the publishers surveyed. (talk) 19:11, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Extent of practice is very different from the what is given permission. If you have a WP:RS with differing stats on either permission or actual use, add it. --Karnesky (talk) 20:29, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Also, the reference list of this article mainly appears to be a link-collection page for more or less two authors. Is that the best way to use a reference section? (talk) 19:14, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

I have added some survey stats from different sources.Peabodybore (talk) 17:49, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Question: What happens when a new publisher takes over?[edit]

Question: What happens when one publishes a paper with a journal that allows self-archiving and much later a new publisher takes over and changes the self-achiving policy? Is one bound by the policy under which one originally published or under the new publisher's policy? (talk) 01:53, 23 January 2018 (UTC)
