Abstract : Introduction: general practice includes a broad field of activity and generates many questions in everyday practice. Physicians’ information search are mainly done through the Internet, a fundamental but complex documentation tool. The aim of this study was to define the practices of French GPs, to identify their difficulties and expectations regarding the research they do on the Internet. Method: systematic review of the literature according to the PRISMA model in French or English in connection with general practice conducted between 01/01/2007 and 31/12/2017. Results: thirty-four studies were included in the final analysis. No typical profile of physician emerged. The research of the physicians on the Internet were daily and mainly carried out on the general search engines. The difficulties were mainly related to lack of time, doubts about the relevance of results and the reliability of the sources and need for prior registration. The expectations of GPs were numerous. GPs were looking for a tool to centralize the information needed for their practices, easily accessible, with concise content. They would also like to receive training in literature search on Internet. Conclusion: solutions are proposed to optimize the relevance of doctors' internet searches to meet their information needs, and thus contribute to the quality of care given to patients.
