After few years of quiet from my blog, I finally think I have some time to write again. Not that I have not been writing for the past two years. I have actually been writing more but around my qualifying exam and my dissertation proposal. Finally, after passing my qualifying last year, I'm almost done with my proposal. One more meeting with my committee and should be ready to start data collections and work on some preliminary data analysis.
I'll write more about this but my dissertation is about scholar's interaction with open access repositories. Given that OA is a new phenomena in the scholarly communication, I thought it would be valuable to understand it in greater depth.
