    Abstract

    A large number of electronic journals from aerospace engineering professional associations are frequently referred by the aerospace scientists and engineers of Bangalore for their day to day research work. A research survey was undertaken to ascertain the ‘Use Patterns of e-Journals’ from aerospace engineering professional associations amongst these aerospace scientists and engineers of the selected 16 aerospace organizations of Bangalore. The total percentage of responses usable from all the 16 aerospace organizations amounted to 89.7 percent. The responses from the participants towards the use of core aerospace engineering e-Journals from aerospace professional associations were graded on a scale of 4 to 0, 4 representing ‘Daily’ and ‘0’ representing ‘Never’. The major findings that the authors would like to report in this paper are: (a) Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was applied for testing the significant difference among the mean scores attained from 16 aerospace organizations towards the Use Patterns of ’e-Journals from Aerospace Professional Associations’ It is observed that all the 16 aerospace organizations show a significant difference (P < 0.05) in their mean scores viz., ‘Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board, NRC (ASEB)’, ‘IEEE – Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS)’, ‘Aerospace Industries Association (AIA)’, ‘American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)’, ‘American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)’, ‘Federal Aviation Manufacturer’s Association (FAMA)’, ‘National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’, ‘Royal Aeronautics Society RAES)’, ‘Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)’, ‘Indian National Science Academy (INSA)’, ‘American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)’, ‘American Mathematical Society (AMS)’, ‘American Institute of Physics (AIP)’, ‘Royal Society of London (RSL)’ and ‘Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)’ ‘except for ‘Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)’, ‘Society of Flight Test Engineers (SFTE)’ and ‘Indian Academy of Sciences (IAS), (P = 0.057)’.
