Scientific Data Sharing Platform Using Behavior Study Based on Extended TAM Model
Scientific data retrieval behavior is a typical human–computer interaction behavior, and users are in the dominant position in the interaction. It is of great significance to improve the scientific data sharing system to study the factors that affect scientific data user data search and retrieval. Based on the extended TAM model, this study used questionnaires to collect data from the competitors of the 6th “sharing cup” university students’ science and technology resources sharing service innovation contest and used structural equation method to analyze the data. The results show that the extended TAM model can explain and predict the using behavior of users’ scientific data sharing platform. Perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, perceived playfulness, and behavior attitude have positive effects on actual behavior through behavior intention, of which perceived usefulness has the most significant effect. The research has an important guiding role for the construction of scientific data sharing platform.
