FRY, J. ... et al, 2011. PEER behavioural research: authors and users vis-à-vis journals and repositories. D4.2 final report. Loughborough: LISU and Loughborough University
The Behavioural research project is one of three independent research projects commissioned
and managed by PEER as part of the PEER Observatory. The aim of the Behavioural research
project was to address the role of stage-two manuscript repositories in the scholarly and
scientific communication system by exploring perceptions, motivations and behaviours of
authors and readers. The research was carried out between April 2009 and August 2011 by the
Department of Information Science and LISU at Loughborough University, UK.
