Set my thesis free... CC-BY... download the pdf...

My thesis arrived on the library catalogue, password protected, so I made my thesis freely available to download on figShare:  http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.680002

My thesis pdf: "A consumer value theory of innovation in 3G mobile phones" arrived Friday on the University of Queensland library catalogue eSpace:
But I was disappointed to see that the pdf file was only available to UQ staff and students, though it was great to see 7 downloads before I even knew that the catalogue entry was online.... So I set it free (CC-BY) : Understanding what consumers value in 3G mobile phones... A consumer 'value' theory of innovation in 3G mobile phones: a grounded theory approach via ... pdf to go..

One of the benefits of Figshare is:

- the allocation of a DOI : http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.680002
A DOI is a permanent identifier and a custodian who promises to always make it available for the foreseeable future...
- a second benefit is that I put into action, with my own research, my work at ANDS to promote better research data management, sharing and reusing of data. In other words, I practice what I preach.
- a third benefit is I put a licence on my thesis: it is now released as CC-BY, which means I have shared the copyright with the world, so long as I am cited as the author, and the work is not commercialised.

I've been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's pretty ρrіce sufficient for me.

In my opinion, if all web οwners and bloggеrѕ mаdе just
right сontent aѕ you did, the internet will be
much more helpful than ever befοre.
