Utilisation of Scholarly Communication through DRDO E-journal Consortium during 2012-2017
Timely, speedy dissemination of latest information is the benchmark of any information and documentation center, but utilisation of e-journals is an important factor for its significance and cost effectiveness. However, in R&D community especially for defence R&D, where scientists are involved in core technology areas, value of information is more important instead of its utilisation. The aim of the study is to find out the utilisation of e-journals with cost effectiveness under Consortium, which was established in the year 2009 for resource sharing among DRDO labs with least expenses. The data was analysed for the period 2011-2017 to know the current trends of utilisation under Consortium. Feedbacks and suggestions were collected from all DRDO users to evaluate the importance of information and its effectiveness. The study shows that productivity of DRDO scientists in publications were increased in high impact factor journal and majority of scientists preferred e-journals instead of print subscriptions.
