Most colleges and universities have expanded, and are expanding, access to electronic information resources. A question remains: to what extent are researchers making use of these resources as part of their inquiry and publishing activities? The present study investigates citation practices by authors of journal articles and includes a study of the potential incorporation of full-text and full-image resources into published work in eight social science disciplines. It also includes a brief survey of a sample of authors of the examined journal articles.
