Researchers at University College London are undertaking a major study on the use of e-journals at a number of universities, including the University of Edinburgh. The first phase of the study analysed usage data from the ScienceDirect and Oxford Journals databases, and the results raised a number of interesting questions as to how scholars seek and use information.
The next phase examines user behaviour in more detail, focussing on the following subject areas:
-Earth sciences (geology, geophysics, planetary sciences)
-Life sciences (including agricultural, veterinary and biological)
If you are carrying out research in any of these subject areas we hope you will be able to complete a short (10 to 15 minutes) online survey. There is a prize draw for Amazon vouchers......
