VAZQUEZ MOCTEZUMA, Salvador Enrique  and  CALVA GONZALEZ, Juan José. Analysis of information needs and information seeking behavior of amateur: boxers. Investig. bibl [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.61, pp.175-206. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper examines the information needs and seeking behaviors in a group of amateur Mexican boxers. One-hundred ninety-three non-probability selected athletes responding to the questionnaire showed that boxers need information on defense, attack and counter-attack techniques. We also observed that the trainer serves as a source of information among these athletes. Four parameters were used to measure the information levels required by boxers and the extent of their use of information sources and resources.

Keywords : Information needs; Information behavior; Information seeking behavior; Boxing; Athletes; Contact Sports.
