RIS - Review of Information Science, a full refereed electronic journal, has been published at the Department of Information Science, University of Konstanz, Germany since July 1996. This text firstly gives a brief introduction to RIS and then reports the main results of a study on the users’ behaviour when using RIS followed by a discussion on these results. The study is based on an analysis of WWW server log files. The results of the study are both interesting for understanding of users’ behaviour when using electronic journals in general and interesting for (re-)designing of scholarly electronic journals, in particular for RIS, as well.
