A scoping review of individual differences in information seeking behavior and retrieval research between 2000 and 2015
چکیده انگلیسی


- Scoping methodology was applied to individual differences research in information behavior and retrieval, 2000-2015.
- Characteristics of individual differences research include types, measurement, populations sampled, and outcomes.
- Findings reveal significant gaps with respect to populations sampled and a lack of consistency in measurement use.
- Recommendations are made to inform future research.

Individual differences have long been of interest in information science as they bear on the design of information systems and services for specific populations. Yet little is known as to which individual differences make a difference to search outcomes, both across applications and for diverse user groups. A scoping study of information seeking and retrieval research from 2000 to 2015 was conducted. Over 2100 articles retrieved from eight scholarly databases were screened based on title, abstract, and full-text (using specified inclusion criteria), resulting in 223 papers for analysis. Data were extracted to provide an overview of the literature, including types of individual differences studied, publication volume over time, measures, samples, and study outcomes. Findings are inconclusiveness regarding how individual differences affect search outcomes, and raise issues around measurement and generalizability. This study represents an essential first step to developing a more systematic investigation of individual differences research and connecting individual research studies to anchor and guide future work.
