Engineers and Scholarly Journals: Reading Patterns in the Electronic Era

Addressing the question of what distinguishes the scholarly journal reading characteristics of engineers, the authors present results and insights from ongoing surveys. They find that peer-reviewed articles, both in print and online, are an important source of high-quality information for engineers in their work; that the average number of articles read each year is increasing; and that engineers read fewer articles but spend more time on each than do scientists.
