A research from an Australian university aiming to explore academics views about publishing or not publishing in refereed sources and their perceived worth of this activity. The survey included many questions to get information on the factors that either encourage or discourage academics from publishing in peer reviewjournals. The responses are analysed in detail and comparisons are made also on the responses of male and female academics.
