In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This research aims to examine Health Information Seeking Behaviour (HISB) and its associated factors among university students from two developing countries. The study also explores the Online Health Information Searching Behaviour (OHISB) and challenges of university students in online environments. An online survey is employed to examine the HISB of university students. In addition, an interactive information retrieval experiment is used to explore university students’ OHISB. Results of this study provide an understanding of HISB and OHISB of university students from two developing countries. Results suggest design strategies to improve health information retrieval systems.
