Beyond the Google generation: towards community-specific usage patterns of scientific information

Résumé

This chapter questions the concept of the Google Generation commonly used to explain information behaviour. The authors try to understand the impact of disciplines on the information behaviour of researchers in science, technology and medicine. A review and analysis of usage studies and empirical results are reported from a qualitative survey with scientists from different disciplines (biology, physics, mathematics, geology and chemistry). Thirty interviews set the information behaviour – information research, reading behaviour, scientific communication and publishing – in the wider framework of scientific activity. Specific attention is paid to new models of academic publishing (open access). Ethnographic observations allow for a reinterpretation of discourse and practice in the information users’ work space.
