Sponsor Our Work

Many of our research reports are made possible through the sponsorship and support of:

  • Foundations
  • Libraries
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Publishers & Library service providers
  • Scholarly societies

Currently, we are seeking sponsors for the US Faculty Survey and for our Research Support Services series. Contact us to learn more.


US Faculty Survey

As scholarly communication and higher education continue to change dramatically, what does this mean for your organization?

  • Has open access changed how faculty conduct their research and disseminate their work?
  • How have faculty adapted their teaching to an online environment?
  • What tools and resources do faculty use to discover new research and keep on top of advances in their field?
  • When and how are faculty bypassing the library to do their work?

These are just some of the trends Ithaka S+R tracks in our triennial national survey of US Faculty. Since 2000, we have fielded a survey of faculty across the United States and then shared the results widely with our greater community.

We believe that our survey results, and the analysis of change over time, provide invaluable market research to publishers and e-resource providers. By understanding how faculty approach their research and teaching, you can pivot your communications with your target audience and develop products and services to better meet their evolving needs.

Research Support Services

Are you poised to support the next generation of scholars in the disciplines you serve?

Through our Research Support Service series, we take a deep dive into a particular discipline to uncover the unique needs of scholars in that field.

For this work we seek the close collaboration and support of libraries, scholarly societies and publishers as we explore changing scholarly research practices in areas including:

  • Content discovery
  • Information management
  • Scholarly analysis
  • Collaboration
  • Library use
  • The writing process
  • Professional interactions
  • Publishing

Based on our research, we then identify the emerging support services needed by scholars and provide recommendations for how libraries and e-resource providers can develop services and products to meet these.

To date, we have reported on art history, chemistry, and history, and we are currently researching agriculture, Asian studies, and religious studies. Contact us to learn about how you can support upcoming reports in the professions, sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities.
