Professor Carol Tenopir will visit The University of Queensland to present her report on the Journal Use and Reading Patterns Survey, conducted in 2012.
The Survey asked questions about the reading of scholarly articles from both print and electronic sources by academic staff and undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The University of Queensland was selected as one of two Australian universities to participate in the study. The results of the study will contribute to international research on the reading of scholarly journal articles.

Retraction Watch is a blog which seeks to highlight the latest scientific retractions. The blog started in August 2010 by Ivan Oransky (executive editor of Reuters Heath and teachers medical journalism a New York University) and Adam Marcus (managing editor of Anaesthesiology News).
So why a blog on retractions?
- Science takes justifiable pride in the fact that it is self-correcting - most of the time….Retractions are therefore a window into the scientific process.
- Hope the blog will form an informal repository for the retractions we find and might even spur the creation of a retraction database.
- Highlighting the retractions will give journalists more tools to uncover fraud and misuse of funds.
- Interested in whether journals are consistent….with printing retractions.
