Abstract
During 1996, the number of scholarly periodicals, either commercially published or free, available in electronic form increased rapidly. The Cafe Jus project took advantage of this critical mass of electronic journals to mount a user study with taught postgraduate students, research students and academic and research staff in various disciplines at Loughborough University. The main conclusions were that: low-level technical problems are still a deterrent to use of electronic journals; people prefer not to read at length on screen, but printing out is slow, commercial publishers tend to follow the lead of technology rather than consider the convenience of their users; at present there is a significant need for user training, exacerbated by the variety of publishers' interface and their speed of change; and free journals using HTML arre preferred to commercial journals using PDF for convenience of reading but are regarded as lower in academic quality
