Psychological Processes in the Use of Electronic Journals

Authors:

Abstract

Evidence of user behaviour with electronic journals from the Super Journal project is reviewed to identify the psychological processes being employed. The article reviews patterns of use, the dominance of browsing as the means of seeking information, the depth, breadth and range of use and the tendency to print. The article concludes that the dominant user approach is a coping strategy that maximises success for minimum psychological effort.
