Education for Change (EfC) is an independent consulting and research company with an active portfolio of work in the UK and internationally.

We are currently working with The Research Partnership on a groundbreaking 3 year study on the research behaviour of the 'Generation Y' researcher. 

The study is the result of a partnership between the British Library and JISC and is due to report its findings in soon.

As part of the Researchers of Tomorrow project, EfC has examined the information-seeking behaviour of 30 doctoral students born between 1982 and 1994.   We have analysed their research habits in both online and physical research environments and have assessed how they use library and information sources on and off line.

The study included a survey of doctoral students of all ages to provide background to the Generation Y research. The first iteration of the survey took place at the end of June 2009 with the assistance of over 70 HEIs and covered all subject disciplines. It was repeated in 2010 and 2011.
