Open Access Academy - OA awareness study
This survey collects information about awareness on open access among students and early stage researchers. The results will be used to help prepare resources, provide support and advice for students and young researchers in their journey from writing to publishing papers.

We would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to answer our questions. We would also appreciate your help in passing the survey to other students and young researchers who might be interested in contributing to our work.
