PubMed User Search Behavior

December 10, 2009 at 3:08 pm Leave a comment

A recently published article in the journal, Database: the Journal of Biological Databases and Curation, investigates the needs and behavior of PubMed users  through the analysis of log data.  The authors analyzed 23 million user sessions with more than 58 million user queries. 

It’s difficult to find large analyses such as these specific to health informatio seeking behavior, so it’s worth having a look.  The fulltext of the article is available here:
