I am delighted to announce publication of a paper titled ‘Information Retrieval in the Workplace: a Comparison of Professional Search Practices‘ in Information Processing & Management. This work is a collaboration with Jon Chamberlain of Essex University and Leif Azzopardi of Strathclyde University, and uses a common research protocol to investigate and compare information retrieval practices across a number of different professions.

The publication is the culmination of an extended programme of research and analysis and (I hope) will complement some of the more opinion or design-oriented posts on this site. I’ve appended the abstract below. For free access to a copy, see the IPM website. Note that this link will no longer work after 15-Sep-2018.

It is a collaboration with Jon Chamberlain of Essex University and investigates the search behavior of healthcare information professionals.

I’ve appended the abstract below. For the full text, see the JMIR website.
