Abstract
Reports results of a 1996 questionnaire survey, conducted among medical faculty members at the medical schools of Tel Aviv University, Ben Gurion University and the Technion, Haifa, to determine the extent of use of electronic periodicals compared with printed periodicals. Level of use of electronic periodicals was found to be very low, reading of these periodicals was infrequent and their use as a publishing medium was close to zero. Respondents were aware of some advantages of electronic periodicals but most doubted their value for academic promotion and consequently avoided using them for publishing. The low interest in reading electronic periodicals was attributed to: the small number of periodicals; lack of full recognition of their scientific value; sheer conservatism; inefficient search practices; and the inconvenience of reading from a computer screen. concludes with recommendations for improving the situation
