Resumen

VALERO RIVERO, Dámaris  y  PONJUAN DANTE, Gloria. Analysis of information behavior in the scientific community of the province of Sancti Spiritus constituted for a collaboration project. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.183-198. ISSN 2307-2113.

Objective: identify the information behavior of researchers from various disciplines integrating the scientific community. Methods: an exploratory study was conducted of members of a scientific community constituted for an institutional collaboration project in which most researchers belong to the areas of pure, life and applied sciences. The variables selected were degree, age, research type and stage, information resources and information sources. A questionnaire was applied to community members and results were analyzed descriptively. Non-parametric statistical tests were used to verify the existence of correlation between the variables selected for the study. Results: a definition was made of the information behavior of members of the scientific community. The library was found to be the most common information resource. An increase was observed in the use of periodic publications (journals and yearbooks). There is a vital need of contacts with colleagues or peers. Electronic texts are increasingly accepted by members of the study community. Conclusions: the information behavior patterns of members of the study scientific community are similar to those found in research conducted in other countries and in experiences consulted for the present study. The library stands out as the most common information resource. Periodic publications and contacts with colleagues or peers are a priority option to access first hand published results.

Palabras clave : information behavior; scientific communities; information needs; collaborative projects.
