This study was performed to survey the nursing researchers' practical need of the development and service of nursing research articles database. Currently, we have no on-line database for the Korean nursing research articles except for the abstracts of the Doctoral and Master' s dissertations via PC Internet Service Provider' s service and research database service by RICH(Research Information Center for Health) in Korea. This study also has aimed to evaluate the efficiency of the innovative strategy of data collection using internet. It was found that the Korean nursing research results database served via internet or CD-ROM format is quite necessary for the Korean nursing researchers. The completed, electronically accumulated responses database has revealed to have the following advantages; It saved considerable time and was cost-effective and very efficient method for data collection. The investigator did not have to spend countless hours or budget funds for numerous calls and letters that typically are necessary for the survey. The investigator did not have to budget funds for release time or research assistants to actually collect and coding the data. Electronic data collection occurs at the user' s convenience, and also could be used as an anonymous communication medium when feasible.
