Abstract: 

The present study attempted to survey the viewpoints of the faculty members of Shahid Chamran University on the importance and use of scientific journals. It also attempted to investigate their viewpoints concerning the substitution of the printed journals by the electronic ones. No attempt was made at sampling; all the 469 faculty members (the whole population) received a copy of the researcher-made questionnaire, 384 of whom completed and returned their copies. The results showed that 75% of the respondents believed that printed scientific journals and 80% believed that electronic journals help them improve their knowledge and stay up-to-date. Nevertheless, 44% of respondents believed that the printed journals available in libraries and 67% believed that the electronic journals available online satisfy their information needs. The results also revealed that while" departments" affect use of the journals, gender, type of degree, academic rank, and the years of teaching experience do not. Although the majority of respondents are against the reduction of book budget in favor of increasing the journal budget, 76% of them suggest an increase in the number of printed and electronic journals.
