Data Memo: Wikipedia Users, a Pew Internet & American Life report by Lee Rainie and Bill Tancer, April 2007.
"This report is based on the findings of a daily tracking survey on Americans' use of the Internet. The results in this report are based on data from telephone interviews conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates between February 15 to March 7 2007, among a sample of 2,200 adults, 18 and older. For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling and other random effects is plus or minus 2.3 percentage points. For results based Internet users (n=1,492), the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting telephone surveys may introduce some error or bias into the findings of opinion polls. "

A Typology of Information and Communication Technology Users, by John B. Horrigan, Associate Director for Research, Pew Internet & American Life Project, May 7, 2007.
From the Summary to the report: "Our typology identifies a rich variety of Web 2.0 users and non-users. At one end of the spectrum, the survey identifies the heaviest consumers, most active users, and happiest denizens of the information society. It also locates those who find great satisfaction in the use of ICT even though they have fewer network resources. In the middle range, the typology highlights some users who have invested a lot in services and hardware, but feel uncomfortable with the extra connectivity. And at the other end of the spectrum, it identifies those who get along many of them just fine with a relative scarcity of information goods and services. "

Self-Archiving and Journal Subscriptions: Co-existence or Competition?, (Summary Paper). Publishing Research Consortium, 2007.
"To help the scholarly community better understand and evaluate how open archiving might impact journal subscriptions, the Publishing Research Consortium has released the summary paper 'Self-Archiving and Journal Subscriptions: Co-existence or Competition?'.This paper is a condensed version of the earlier analysis released in November 2006. It looks at librarian purchasing preferences, and concludes that mandating self-archiving within six months or less of publication will undermine the subscription-based peer review journal. "

The SERU Approach to E-Resource Subscriptions: Framework for Development and Use of SERU (Draft for Comment), Shared E-Resource Understanding (SERU) Working Group, NISO.
"This document, "The SERU Approach to E-Resource Subscriptions: Framework for Development and Use of SERU," presents a shared set of understandings to which publishers and libraries can point when negotiating the sale of electronic content. The framework offers publishers and libraries a solution to the often-burdensome process of bilateral negotiation of a formal license agreement by allowing the sale of e-resources without licenses if both parties feel their perception of risk has been adequately addressed by current law and developing norms of behavior. The SERU Working Group welcomes comments on its draft document."

The findings are based on three years of responses from a national sample of over 1,000 colleges and universities. Additional results are presented from an Eduventures-conducted national survey of 2,033 U.S. adults interested in postsecondary education in the next three years. "
