In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The purpose of this study is to examine the information needs and behaviour of students, lecturers and researchers, in the APTIK universities as they performed their learning, teaching and research tasks. Causal models have been developed to represent the factors which influence each aspect of information needs and behaviour. In these models, determining factors have been grouped into input and process factors. A path analysis was used to test the postulated information needs and behaviour models, and to estimate the magnitude of the direct and indirect effects of factors taken as causes on factors taken as effects, in the models.
