Knimbus, a global search and collaboration platform that connects creators and users of scientific, technical and medical (STM) knowledge, has released the results of a survey conducted with over 600 researchers in India to understand research behaviour, challenges, preferred sources and the relevance of collaboration in research.

According to the survey, 87 per cent of researchers cited access to current and trusted information as the most critical factor for success in their field. Five out of 10 researchers use e-resources, such as, e-journals, conference paper and blogs, on a daily basis. Nine out 10 researchers prefer e-journals as a research source while four out of 10 prefer to use e-books, conference papers and web content. Blogs are the least preferred with only two out of 10 researchers preferring them.

The survey revealed the importance of collaboration among researchers as key to building their cross-domain expertise. Five out of 10 researchers who participated in the survey strongly support the role of collaboration in playing a vital role in creating research success stories.

The survey also revealed challenges faced by researchers in India.
