Human Factors Studies of Database Query Language: SQL as a Metric
Over the years, SQL has been used repeatedly in human factors experiments measuring the ease of use of database query languages. These experiments have studied a wide range of issues from basic language comparisons, through design issues, to attempts to understand the human cognitive processes involved in querying a database. This paper summarizes the issues and the experiments that have involved SQL.
