I'm doing research on the effects of english language proficiency on information searching on the web, as it pertains to non native english speakers. I'm having GREAT trouble finding previous research / articles on this subject. I would be very grateful for any help on the subject - if you know of such papers, useful resources, relevant searchwords - anything!
the iresearch reporter is great!
I am not sure that it would affect their search skills- they may not have the language necessary, but what if they have the skills to search in an effective way in their own language?
