Academic social network sites
Abstract:Sharing academic papers on academic social network sites (ASNSs) is a form of self-archiving. Although self-archiving has been discussed at length in the context of open access repositories, few researchers have examined self-archiving in the context of social media. To address this dearth of research, we proposed a motivation framework that is applicable to investigate users’ self-archiving motivations in ASNSs. The framework proposed in this study consisted of eighteen factors covering four dimensions: (1) personal, (2) social, (3) professional, and (4) constraining/enabling factors. In our future studies, we will test our framework and examine users’ motivations in self-archiving their work in one of the most popular ASNSs, ResearchGate (RG). Specifically, RG users' demographic and disciplinary characteristics will be related to their motivational factors.
