A general feature of the Open Access as a new strategy of scientific communication characterizing international, national and institutional policies related to open access, the open access to information models is a new debate in academic society. A traditional paradigm of the scientific communication is characterized as well as the analysis of the defining factors upon which the need to upgrade the scientific communication system by changing the paradigm under open access strategy circumstances relies. This work is mainly aimed at presenting and analysing the academic community attitude towards copyright, generating a computer application by integrating two already available platforms, creating a useful information management tool for the academic community and analysing the digital repository by calculating and optimizing performance indicators in terms of digital repository users satisfaction with the scientific production of the academic community. The qualitative research related to the Academic Community Behavior – Editors and Universities describes various researches and studies related to academic community attitudes, expectations and knowledge in terms of copyright, own archiving and open access to information.
