Abstract

Medical doctors seek information in order to satisfy their demanding everyday work practices and professional development endeavours. Information seeking is acontinuous goal-related process that has impact on how they perceive and experience their job. The purpose of this work was to explore the association of doctors' awareness of medical practice information needs, their frequency of using online information resources and the barriers they encountered during information seeking with their overall job satisfaction. More specifically, the research examined the mediating role of these information seeking related variables (information needs, online scholarly resources and information barriers) on doctors' overall job satisfaction.
