Abstract: Aerospace scientists and engineers of 16 selected aerospace organizations of Bangalore were surveyed during May 2008 to February 2009. Analysis of 583 responses from 650 distributed questionnaires (89.7 percent) revealed that reading e-journals saved time and helped scientists and engineers to gain more scientific knowledge, resolved technical problems, resulted in faster completion of tasks, helped in becoming more organized in archiving papers, helped in obtaining information related to specific experimental processes, helped in exchanging (received, distributed) more journal articles with colleagues, etc. ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) was applied for testing the significant difference among the 16 mean scores obtained from the scientists and engineers of the aerospace organizations about their ‘strong perceptions about e-journal access.’ It was observed that all the 16 organizations show a significant difference (P < 0.05) in their mean scores.
