How Readers Navigate to Scholarly Content

This White Paper is published by Tracy Gardner and Simon Inger. The research repeats an earlier study performed in 2005 by Scholarly Information Strategies (for whom the authors were consultants) that asks researchers about their preferred start points. The subtle shifts in user preferences provide a valuable insight into user navigation, the features that they find useful in publisher web sites, and the role and effectiveness of library technologies. The research findings will give publishers crucial insight into how end users find and use scholarly resources and help them understand how they should engineer their web sites to meet changing reader navigational behaviour.
