The Publishing Research Consortium has a new report, “Early Career Researchers: the harbingers of change?”…

“there are no recent investigations into the extent to which their behaviours may prove transformational. This qualitative study of ECRs from seven countries, a first report of a longitudinal study, tracks communication and publication behaviour, and attitudes to peer review, collaboration, sharing, open access, social media and emerging impact mechanisms.”

Mostly that seems to be “change” as in, “We have still have a physical library? How quaint and delightfully old-fashioned”.
