Good news, we have a competition to share!
For the past 2 years Taylor & Francis have conducted a worldwide survey of journal authors' views on Open Access (you can read more about the survey results in a previous blog post). Now the publisher has started a competition to encourage greater engagement with the published survey data.
The publisher is offering a prize of an APC (Article Processing Charge) waiver to the person who makes the most insightful use of the survey data. Effectively, this represents a prize of £1788!
To enter, email your findings to firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively tweet a link to the findings to @TandFOpen. Entry closes on the 26th of October, so not much time left!
Admittedly the prize is not applicable to everyone - it's also not transferable and there is no cash alternative :( However, it is still very worthwhile taking a look at the survey data as it gives a real insight into prevailing opinions and also how opinions have changed over the past year.
Are your opinions mirrored by the worldwide academic community*? Why not find out!
*Note that because T&F publishes more Social Sciences and Humanities titles
than Science and Technology, the results could be considered biased towards these
