The report on author attitudes to OA showcased the views of authors from the seven most represented countries in the Editage Global Survey Report: Brazil (B), China (C), India (I), Japan (J), South Korea (SK), the United Kingdom (UK), and the United States (US), and provided insights on: geographic differences in the level of OA awareness, country-specific trends in researchers’ stated reasons for choosing or refraining from OA journals, and specific perspectives of Chinese researchers toward the OA publishing model.
