Resource description

The Network of European Economists Online (NEEO) project is a 30-month project running from September 2007 � February 2010. NEEO aims to create a central multilingual portal, Economists Online (EO), with enhanced metadata descriptions and links to the full-text research publications and primary data output of at least 500 top researchers and the economics publications of partner institutions. In late 2007 the first user requirements study was undertaken to identify the needs of economics researchers regarding access to full-text documents and datasets; dissemination of research outputs; services to be implemented in EO; and any multilingual issues. A follow-up mid-project questionnaire was conducted in early 2009 in order to obtain early feedback from users of EO and identify any necessary refinements. A third evaluation questionnaire will be conducted near the end of the project. This article presents the results of the first two of these studies.
