One has to use a bit of "salt" with these "surveys".

"The publishing group Taylor and Francis has conducted a large survey
amongst its authorship in ten geographic regions (Africa, Australasia,
Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East, North America, Northern and
Central Europe, South Asia, South East Asia, Southern Europe) to discover
their attitudes to Open Access (OA).  14,700 authors responded."

Would be nice to see IFLA or a similarly neutral party, launch an open
unbiased survey.
Those results would be very interesting indeed.

Does anybody know of such a survey?
