本文摘要

本文以實徵研究析論臺灣資訊行為相關研究之現況,並提出建議。第一階段以量化方式進行,藉由統計數據之顯示初步了解資訊行為相關研究的趨勢;第二階段以質化方式進行,以內容分析為主要研究方法,於選定的架構下擇八篇論文進行評析。結果發現,國內資訊行為相關研究於近幾年內(84-93學年度)呈現穩定而持續的成長,研究主題與研究對象類型多樣化,唯研究學域以圖書資訊學領域為主,雖有越來越多新興領域進行研究,成長情形仍有待觀察。論文內容上質的分析則發現,論文研究者主要以「動機」、「資料主題/資訊內容」、「資料類型」、「資訊管道」作為資訊需求研究的重點。建議此類研究設計與分析須更為周延,並尋求研究方法的創新性,以利研究成果之累積。

This paper reports on empirical research conducted from December 2005 to April 2006. The goal of this paper is to understand relevant research on information behavior in Taiwan and to make suggestions to researchers. This research was conducted in two stages. In the first stage, the number of theses conducted in this area was analyzed statistically to shed light on trends in information behavior research. In the second stage, content analysis was performed on eight theses, which were chosen according to a developed framework. This analysis shows that the number of instances of information behavior related research has been increasing steadily, while research topics and research subjects were quite diversified. A growing number of disciplines has begun to take an interest in information behavior, though most research was still conducted in the area of Library and Information Science. This study also found that the selected theses' authors emphasized motivation, topic/content, type of information resource and channel via which information was garnered in looking at information needs research. Finally, we suggest that research design and analysis be more rigorous, and that researchers be more creative in adopting research methodology in future studies.
