Future of the SFRA Review Survey Results

Yesterday, I posted the results of the SFRA’s survey regarding the future of the SFRA Review. I believe that the results point toward a need for compromise between the necessity of digital publication and the desire for some members to have a print version. These are the results of the survey:

These are the results of the recent poll that the Executive Committee conducted to determine membership opinion on the future publication and distribution model for the organization’s official publication, the SFRA Review.

1) How would you prefer to receive the SFRA Review?

Online : 55 votes : 60%

Mail : 36 votes : 40%

Total : 91 votes

2) If the review were published online, what format would you prefer?

PDF : 45 votes : 51%

ebook : 27 votes : 30%

Blog : 14 votes : 16%

Wiki : 3 votes : 3%

Total : 89 votes

3) If the SFRA Review were published online, how often would you like to see it released?

Quarterly : 58 votes : 66%

Continuous : 30 votes : 34%

Total : 88 votes

The results from this poll as well as the many opinions expressed on the SFRA email list will be weighted at the annual business meeting held at the conference in Poland on July 7-10, 2011. You may download the graphed results as a PDF attached to this news post.

The results and a pdf with graphs are available here.
