Open-Access Publishing Advantages: A Case Study at the “Australian Journal of Teacher Education”

We often talk about the benefits of open-access publishing in terms of readership, measured by download counts. With over 350,000 downloads over the past 3 years, the Australian Journal of Teacher Education certainly reflects that story. But AJTE’s experience also demonstrates a virtuous circle leading to more submissions, a higher quality and quantity of published articles, and a greater international impact. In this webinar, Julia Gross, Janice Chan, and Tony Fetherston of Edith Cowan University talk about the library and Research Online’s role in making this growth possible. The presentation is recommended for journal editors, potential editors, repository administrators, library-publishers, and anyone who’s interested in open-access, library-led publishing.
