Title: How Well Do Faculty Know Their Copyrights? A Survey of Faculty Knowledge, Perception, and Use of Copyright
Objective: To assess faculty members' knowledge and perception of their rights as authors and behavior when working with copyright transfer agreements. The key hypothesis of the study is the assumption that faculty members receiving grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will be more knowledgeable of basic author rights than those faculty members who are not currently NIH grant recipients. Results will inform programs to educate faculty in the areas where their author rights knowledge is weakest, their perceptions are flawed, or their behaviors are self-defeating.
Methods: Design: A cross-sectional quantitative survey asking 13 specific questions grouped under demographics, publication activities, copyright knowledge, publishing behavior, and opinions about publishing options. The survey will be administered online through SurveyMonkey to approximately 200 faculty members at 2 different institutions. Population and Sample: The sample will be randomly selected from medical school faculty members at a medium-sized private institution and nonmedical faculty at a large public institution. In both groups will be faculty who have received NIH grants in the past 3 years and those who have not.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
