There is a dearth of research on the perceptions of faculty members in educational leadership regarding open access publications. This reality may exist because of a lack of funding for educational leadership research, financial obstacles, tenure demands, or reputation concerns.
It may be that there are simply fewer established open access publishers with reputable impact factors to encourage publication by members in the field.
The current study seeks to answer the following question: “What are the perceptions of educational leadership faculty members in UCEA about open access publishing?”
The results are based on responses from 180 faculty members in the field of educational leadership.
