In this study, we examine attitudes of researchers towards Open Access scholarly journals. Using two-step cluster analysis to explore survey data from researchers at large North American research institutions, two different cluster types emerge: Those with a positive, progressive attitude toward OA (“pro-OA”) and a desire to reach the non-scholarly audience groups who would most benefit from OA, and those with a more negative, skeptical attitude and less interest in reaching non-scholarly readers (“non-OA”). These cluster identities in terms of position type and subject discipline, as well as implications for policy and practice, are further explored.
