 + 
 +Renew Publishing Consultants have published the findings to two major research projects. How Readers Discover Content in Scholarly Publications 2018 is the latest in a series of reports spanning 13 years identifying the trends in user discovery behaviour. The latest research was carried out with the support of leading publishers and intermediaries,​ and attracted responses from over 10,000 people working and studying across all sectors, subject disciplines and regions. Headline results include: 
 + 
 +  * SciHub is responsible for around 5% of downloads in the wealthier nations (and must pose a special threat since the content available there is normally the final published version). 
 +  * Around 60% of the time people are reading articles from a “free” resources (it is likely PMC is responsible for much of this in the medical sector). 
 +  * In the academic sector as a whole, abstracting and indexing databases (A&Is) still appear to be the most important starting point in search. 
 +  * Academic search engines (such as Google Scholar) are more important than general search engines. 
 +  * Library discovery seems to have peaked in its importance-rating and is only holding a strong position in Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. 
 +  * Whilst searching as a discovery method dominates, it still only accounts for around 45% of people’s behaviour. Around 55% of the time people found the article they needed via other methods, eg following links on social media, emails and alerts, browsing other resources.

 Selecting a web-scale discovery service is a large and important undertaking that involves a significant investment of time, staff, and resources. Finding the right match begins with a thorough and carefully planned evaluation process. In order to be successful, this process should be inclusive, goal-oriented,​ data-driven,​ user-centered,​ and transparent. The following article offers a step-by-step guide for developing a web-scale discovery evaluation plan rooted in these five key principles based on best practices synthesized from the literature as well as the author’s own experiences coordinating the evaluation process at Rutgers University. The goal is to offer academic libraries that are considering acquiring a web-scale discovery service a blueprint for planning a structured and comprehensive evaluation process. \\ Selecting a web-scale discovery service is a large and important undertaking that involves a significant investment of time, staff, and resources.
