Results of Elsevier's study on the effect of R&D Information Tools on Research Success

In May 2006 Elsevier commissioned Martin Akel & Associates to conduct an independent study among researchers in the corporate market to determine
a) how the R&D environment is changing
b) whether there is a correlation between access to paid information and research success
c) how Elsevier's research tools were perceived compared to other providers
d) and find researchers' opinions of the contribution of information professionals to the R&D process.
