How do Chinese researchers use research information management systems?: An exploratory study Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Copyright 2017 by Association for Information Science and Technology This poster presents how Chinese researchers use research information management (RIM) systems (e.g., ResearchGate, Google Scholar). Findings include a typology of activities in which Chinese researchers engage in RIM systems. The findings indicate that obtaining English papers and connecting with scholars from other countries motivate Chinese researchers to use specific RIM systems, while the language barrier and the Great Firewall of China discourage them to use or engage in those systems.
