Full description

For the purposes of this study, we define scholarly communication roles as roles which include: Institutional repository management, Publishing services, Research practice, Copyright services, Open access policies and the scholarly communication landscape, Data management services, and Assessment & impact metrics.

The focus of this research is on aspects of the level of confidence that librarians working in scholarly communication have in their current competencies. The focus is on questions of confidence in the core competencies of scholarly communication and the education and training background of the respondents, the latter in order to understand how respondents develop confidence in these core competencies. The research team undertook a comparative analysis of the NASIG and COAR (Confederation of Open Access Repositories) competencies to inform their assessment of the competencies for inclusion in this study. Our analysis of the comparison is online https://openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/handle/1885/251609.

The survey used Qualtrics software. The ANU ethics panel required that no question would be compulsory, thus not all respondents answered all questions. As a result, a pre-analysis was undertaken for each of the questions to determine the number of responses for each question.

Participants were recruited through communication mediums used by the target cohort. The first completed response was received on 21 October 2020; the last was submitted on 3 December 2020. One hundred and sixty valid responses were received and analyzed using Excel and descriptive statistics for the quantitative questions, and NVivo and manual thematic coding for the qualitative questions. Each member of the team took responsibility for analysis of different quantitative questions and coding of the qualitative questions, after which the team came together and confirmed each other’s work. Initial analysis of the Confidence in Competency Areas included a set of specific Tasks for each Competency Area from matrix questions. The results from these questions were initially individually analyzed for each Competency Area. These charts demonstrated the depth of information available from these sections of the survey. We analyzed the level of confidence the responses showed across a Competency Area by adding together all of the Tasks listed in each Competency Area and then charting the total Confidence for each Competency Area.
