The study charted the views of researchers and other staff in the University of Tampere, Finland, on Open Access self-archiving.

The respondents were asked questions about Open Access publishing, universities' Open Access repositories and copyright issues, for example, the importance of open access to scholarly publications, familiarity with self-archiving in the University of Tampere repository (TamPub), ways of making publications available on the Internet, and willingness to self-archive post-prints of articles in the open institutional repository.

Background variables included the respondent's age, position/rank in the university, and school/institute.
