The process of digitalisation of the research studies has emerged as a blessing for all those who are willing to publish their works in the clinical research industry. The internet has provided people with an unprecedented source of information that they can use to gather facts and to make a case for their point of view. However, the problem with this information is that it is very hard to get hold of it if one is not using the web. In order to address this lacuna, the digitalisation of the research studies has come up as a boon for all those who are willing to publish their works on the Internet. This is because it can make the study more accessible to a greater number of people than the printed versions, without losing its interactivity, flavour and style.
The digitalisation of the research has made the university libraries and the museums more accessible to the researchers by making their work easily retrievable in computers. All one needs to do is to search for the relevant book and the work on the computer will be available to the user without any loss of information. It is also easier to check out the work of the other members of the research group online if one has got a computer. One can thus make sure that one gets the most recent information on their subject.
It is interesting to note that the digitalisation of the research studies has even affected the university’s own internal publications. This means that the researchers have also had to learn the ropes of using computerized research tools to manage their own data and publications online. The impact of the digitalisation of the research studies can be seen across all the departments of the university. It is interesting to note that academic libraries have embraced digital technology to a greater extent than most other departmental libraries. It would seem that the time has come when academics all over the world are going to be forced to face the issue of the digitalisation of research studies.
