AbstractThe paper presents the results of research on the use of electronic publications for writing theses by first and second degree students of two engineering and technical studies: agriculture and forestry technology, and management and production engineering. 53 first-degree and 175 second-degree students were included in the study. It was found that both first and second degree students use electronic publications on a par with printed ones when writing their theses. First-degree students preferred Google Scholar, while second-degree students preferred Polish scientific publishers. The choice of both the Google Scholar database and the pages of Polish scientific publications resulted from the possibility to search for papers in Polish, which was the main language of publication chosen by both groups of students.
