A research survey was undertaken to study the ‘Scientists’ Purpose of Visiting E‐Journal Sites’. The geographic boundary of this research study consists of 16 prominent aerospace organizations of Bangalore. The age‐group of this study is between 21‐60 years. The occupation category of this sample population has been broadly classified into, (a) Scientific / R&D, (b) Armed Forces, (c) Teaching, and (d) Manager. The broad areas of specialization of the Aerospace Scientists and Engineers have been classified into (a) Thermal and Fluid Sciences, (b) Avionics, Guidance and Control, (c) Aerospace Structures and Allied Mechanical Sciences, (d) Materials and Metallurgy, (e) Flight Operations and other Allied Disciplines, and (f) General Engineering and Support Sciences. The major conclusions that the authors would like to highlight in this study are: Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was applied for testing the significant difference among the 16 mean scores attained from the scientists and engineers of the aerospace organizations for the ‘Purpose of visit to e‐journal sites’. It is observed that all the 16 aerospace organizations show a significant difference (P < 0.05) in their mean scores viz., ‘Search bibliographic information’, ‘Browse the table of contents (TOC)’, ‘Browse only Abstracts’, ‘Access the full text of articles’, ‘For gathering research information’, ‘Facilitate teaching’, Keep updated in your subject’, ‘Writing proposals, reports, thesis etc.’, ‘Prepare for technical presentations’.
