Ithaka S+R Releases Report on the Research Practices of Civil and Environmental Engineering Scholars

From an Introductory Blog Post by Rebecca Springer:

2019-01-16_17-45-27The latest installment in Ithaka S+R’s series of Research Support Services projects investigates the research practices and support needs of civil and environmental engineering scholars. Today we are excited to publish the project’s capstone report.

This project was carried out with the generous support of the American Society of Civil Engineers and in partnership with researchers at eleven academic libraries in the United States and Canada. Each library wrote a report and made recommendations to improve support for civil and environmental engineering scholars at their own institutions. Ithaka S+R’s capstone report complements these findings by stepping back to evaluate the broader research support ecosystem in which civil and environmental engineering scholars operate. Although previous projects have studied other fields with a strong applied component, including agriculture and public health, our report shows that the field of civil and environmental engineering is unique in its close relationship with industrial partners, including government agencies, NGOs, and private companies.
