Micro Characteristics e-Book Research: a Literature-based Analysis

This research intended to identify micro-features of e-book research published during 2010 and 2011. It is based on e-book research literature published in LIS and other journals. Relevant literature was searched from various databases and analyzed to fulfill the purpose of this study. The study finds that e-book researchers have investigated aspects such as e-book use, e-book reader and commercial aspects. Further, it finds that e-book research is published in LIS as well as non-LIS journals. LIS as well as non-LIS faculties and library practitioners conduct research on e-books. There is not much difference between the citation behaviour of LIS and non-LIS e-book researchers. The research will be useful for prospective e-book researchers in planning and conducting research. This articles will also be useful for LIS curriculum developers.
