Information-seeking behaviour of Iranian extensionists

A recent article in the e-journal Information Research identifies the reasons why extension managers and specialists in Iran seek job-related information, the information sources and communication channels they use, and the barriers to seeking it. The authors - Gholamreza Pezeshki-Rad and Naser Zamani from Tarbiat Modares University - found that interpersonal communication with colleagues, in-service training courses, and scientific-technical conventions were the top-ranked communication channels. The top three most-used information sources were Persian books, Persian scientific magazines, and scientific-technical reports.
