Paul Mercieca has self-archived his Ph.D. theses, "Beyond Open Access: An Examination of Australian Academic Publication Behaviour," in the RMIT Research Repository.
Here's an excerpt:
This study explored the publication behaviour of academics from Australian universities and how this impacted on the adoption of open access models of scholarly publishing. . . .
The outcome of this study was a number of theoretical models that suggested that the changing policies associated with research recognition have narrowed the publication behaviour of the Australian academic community and that this could be to the detriment of the adoption of alternative models of scholarly publishing.. . .
The study also examined engagement with institutional repositories and highlighted the importance of mediation in populating the content of repositories. The process of permission-based mandates was supported as a means to develop repository content.
