Abstract:
E-Journals, short for electronic journals, have revolutionized the way we access and disseminate scholarly information in the digital age. As the digital counterpart to traditional print journals, e-journals provide researchers, academics, and students with an efficient and convenient means of accessing peer- reviewed articles, research papers, and other scholarly content through online platforms. These journals cover a wide range of disciplines and offer numerous advantages over their print counterparts, such as immediate availability, enhanced searchability, interactive features, and global accessibility. In this era of rapid information exchange and technological advancements, e-journals have emerged as a fundamental resource for scholarly communication, fostering collaboration, knowledge sharing, and innovation across various fields of study.
E-Journals occupy a prominent place in academic and research environment. The new technologies have enhanced access to and usage of e-journals. The study has adopted simple random sampling with sample replacement method to collect information from the students/ researcher at University of Madras. The study found that majority of the users prefer e-journals rather than conventional type of printed journals. Further, the users prefer internet search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN as their initial search engine point for accessing e-journals. UGC-INFONET web portal is also used by majority of the users.
