    Abstract

    A large number of Scientific Web Sites are frequently referred by the aerospace scientists and engineers of Bangalore. These scientists and engineers also frequently download e-journal full-text articles. A research survey was undertaken to ascertain the‘Use’ Patterns of Scientific Web Sites and Most Preferred File Formats for e-Journal Downloads’ amongst these aerospace scientists and engineers of the selected 16 aerospace organizations of Bangalore. The study is restricted to the geographic boundary of the city of Bangalore. Out of the 650 survey questionnaires distributed to the scientists and engineers, a total number of 612 were received back and finally 583 responses found suitable for the study. The total percentage of responses usable from all the 16 aerospace organizations amounted to 89.7 percent. The analysis is based on the responses received from the aerospace scientists and engineers representing these selected aerospace organizations. The major findings that the authors would like to report in this paper are: (a) The Chi-Square test indicates that the different grades (designations) of the Aerospace Scientists and Engineers (Chi-Square = 168.068, P Value = 0.000) by the ‘Frequency of Use of Scientific Web Sites’ have significant association. (b) Also, The Chi-Square test indicates that the different grades (designations) of the Aerospace Scientists and Engineers by the ‘Most Preferred File Format for Full-Text Downloads for PDF’(Chi-Square = 181.284, P = 0.011), ’HTML’(Chi-Square = 174.988, P = 0.024), ‘MS-Word(Chi-Square = 171.326, P = 0.037)’,‘RTF(Chi-Square = 189.748, P = 0.003)’ and for ‘OCR (Chi-Square = 181.266, P = 0.011) have significant association.
