I repeat a message I perhaps posted incorrectly a day ago or so. In a niche publishing field I had going before retirement, I had a lot of interaction with
academic people. In fact, one of my undergrad cohort worked at NARA during
John Carlin’s era. Frankly, I’ve found only one academic person out of maybe three dozen, who has much cognizance of FOIA or considers FOIA at all a promising investment of time and effort (and money?).
I don’t know whether a survey has been done that would shed light on this question
