The theory analysis of faculty participation in institutional repositories

Title

The theory analysis of faculty participation in institutional repositories

Subject

Institutional repositories

Description

Institutional Repositories (IRs) are an innovative mode of scholarly communication, and IRs’ diffusions will likely follow the general rule of innovation diffusion while maintaining their own characteristics. In order to provide a credible guide and theory basis for IRs’ practical applications, this paper uses Rogers’ Innovation Diffusion Theory to analyze IRs’ adoption by faculty in the following areas: 1. IRs as an innovation in scholarly communication; 2. the current situation of faculty participation in IRs; 3. factors which affect faculty’s attitude and participation in IRs; 4. strategies to increase faculty participation in IRs.
