This talk was a Pecha Kucha from Session RF6 at Open Repositories 2012 (http://or2012.blogs.edina.ac.uk/).

"Reflections on and Misconceptions of Open Access" - Helen Kenna, University of Salford, United Kingdom.

This paper was originally proposed by: Helen Kenna, Karen Bates, University of Salford, United Kingdom.

The University of Salford has had an Open Access mandate in place since January 2010, and the University of Salford Institutional Repository (USIR) has grown considerably during this time, in size, range of content and reputation.

Like other institutions Salford has spent time and effort on our advocacy programs. Salford has taken this one step further and commissioned a set of externally facilitated focus groups that has enabled the Library to uncover how USIR is really perceived and used by researchers at Salford.

The results have left us with the conclusion that even when time and effort has been put into advocacy programmes, promotion and training, people can still get things wrong and misunderstand. This work has given the Library an opportunity to reflect on the progress of our Open Access work to date, to think about these outcomes in line with the results received to our 'Unlocking attitudes to Open Access' survey (devised by RSP and UKCoRR) and to plan a new way forward for our advocacy activities to try and alleviate these misunderstandings.
