Scientific journals have been ranked at the top for obtaining specific information and keeping up-to-date. Concludes that the working culture of the individual requiring information, the importance placed on getting it, the facilities available for seeking it, the knowledge about these facilities, the judgment of their value and the probability of getting what is wanted affects information seeking behavior.
