Reuse and Self-Archiving

In an age when online usage is one of the most relevant metrics for academic publishing success and the gauge via which many institutional libraries decide whether to purchase scholarly content, we are eager to ensure that all online usage is measured. We want therefore to drive usage to our online research environments (such as Oxford Scholarship Online), rather than having it fragmented via institutional repositories or personal sites. We are happy to free up an online chapter (of your choice) for a limited time period on our online product page and for you to alert others to this availability. We are able to track online views and "turn-aways," a term that describes when a scholar or student attempts to access material to which their institution does not subscribe. This information is crucial in helping us to understand customer behaviours and tailor future library purchasing options.
