Overall, 38% of articles required to support teaching were available as OA in some form but only 7% had a findable re-use licence; just 3% had licences that specifically permitted inclusion in an ‘electronic course-pack’.
Eighty-nine percent of journal content was written by academics (34% by UK-based academics).
Such a differentiation may have the potential to outline the paradigms for third mission activities in a more systematic and structured way.
In addition, this analysis may allow Austrian UAS to make more informed decisions along the lines of third-stream initiatives that are based on their strategic positioning and profile.
The Reviewing process is completed with in 10 days after submission.
The manuscripts will be published online shortly after acceptance and the article proof will be mailed to the corresponding author.In addition, we sought to identify the wide range of potential rationales behind regional engagement, attempted to differentiate between concepts that primarily target the traditional roles of universities (teaching and research) and seek to integrate third mission elements (Entrepreneurial University, Triple Helix, Mode 2) with an eye on economic gains and those that foreground additional responsibilities at the tertiary level for societal purposes.In this sense, we sought to carve out to what extent institutions also engage in third mission activities predominantly for non-economic reasons (Engaged University, Regional Innovation Systems, Sustainable University).This journal intends to be of interest and utility to researchers and practitioners in the academic, industrial and governmental sectors.IJEAST Impact Factor: Founded in 2010 as an independent interdisciplinary Journal, International Journal of Engineering Applied Science and Technology, IJEAST is responsible for featuring information covering the diverse domains in technology.The quantitative data analysis is combined with interviews of, and a workshop with, HE practitioners to investigate four research questions.Firstly, what is the nature of the content being used to support courses of study?This article seeks to understand how far the United Kingdom higher education (UK HE) sector has progressed towards open access (OA) availability of the scholarly literature it requires to support courses of study.It uses Google Scholar, Unpaywall and Open Access Button to identify OA copies of a random sample of articles copied under the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) HE Licence to support teaching.In close collaboration with the publisher transcript, we developed a business [...] Read more.The strategic goal of the project “National Contact Point Open Access OA2020-DE” is to create the conditions for a large-scale open-access transformation in accordance with the Alliance of German Science Organizations.
