Summary & Purpose
Dataset gathered to study faculty perceptions of open access publishing. The data was gathered through a Qualtrics survey deployed in Fall of 2020 to all faculty. Two reminder emails were sent. For the purposes of this study, faculty were considered any employee with teaching responsibilities, including traditional tenured and tenure-track faculty, clinical faculty, emeritus faculty, lecturers and instructors, and adjunct faculty. The consent process was included in the deployment of the survey, and the recruitment process consisted of one email sent to all Boise State University faculty inviting them to participate in the research. There were no incentives available for this survey. The survey instrument was sent to 1,383 faculty at Boise State. While 498 started the survey, 469 completed the survey (response rate of 33.9%), exceeding the necessary sample size of 450 that will indicate that the survey is representative of the faculty population of Boise State University.
