Bibliographic Management Practices & Scientific Literature Usage

  1. 1. Bibliographic ManagementScientific Literature Usage 15 November 2011
  2. 2. Why did we commission the research?2
  3. 3. A few methodology facts  Independent research firm  Qualitative / opinion-based  Diverse pool of participants3
  4. 4. A few more methodology facts Regulatory  Affairs Job Function 10% Corporate  Marketing  Librarian Manager 37% 24% Lead or  Principle  Scientist or  Researcher,  29%4
  5. 5. A few more methodology facts Decision‐Making Individual Level 5% Workgroup Level 43% Enterprise 52% Level
  6. 6. A few more methodology facts Years of Experience 80% 12% 8% Less than 10 10 to 19 20 or more
  7. 7. Findings: what research scientists want “People don’t know what other people have looked at. There should be some system where I know people in a special field have already “Everybody knows looked at an article, their responsibilities and maybe those to keep up with the articles pop up articles in the centrally.” library.”5
  8. 8. Findings: what librarians want “We’re purveyors of knowledge, breaking down silos.” “People expect us to be the drivers of bibliographic policy.” “25% might set up their own alerts, but I go and set up the other 75% because I don’t want them to miss anything.”6
  9. 9. Findings: what marketers want “It would be nice if there was one place they could all link. If there were some solution that took medical journals as a whole and when it became published you could pull articles from those so you didn’t have to physically go looking for them, but were delivered to you.”7
  10. 10. Findings: what reg.affairs pros want “Although users have been educated on appropriate article use, it’s difficult to police all their actions.”8
