[Objective] Understand the attitudes of Chinese academic journals toward Institutional Repositories deposit policies. [Methods]Select 326 samples from the list of "Report of Chinese S&T Journals Citations", telephone them to make sure that they answer this online survey. [Results]195 valid surveys are returned and the effective rate is more than 65%. 74.9% journals agree that the papers can be stored in the Institutional Repository, so their attitudes and recommendations about the article deposit and communication by Institutional Repositories are positive. [Limitations]The survey scale is limited on the high quality, well-known and digital journals, and the result is not applicable to the whole Chinese journals. [Conclusions] Most of investigated targets agree the policy of article deposit and communication of Institutional Repositories, but as the recommendation of this survey, they wish that the consulting service about the rights of journal article open access is provided in future.
