Miller, Nancy R.
This report analyzes the major issues discussed at hearings held by the House Subcommittee on Science, Research and Technology on the availability of Japanese scientific and technical information (STI), and outlines the various alternatives for action. The study begins with a discussion of Japan's efforts to coordinate STI, including government efforts to create integrated STI networks and additional efforts to monitor and acquire foreign STI. A discussion of current U.S. efforts to acquire Japanese STI, including selected efforts by federal agencies, the private sector, and university programs, is followed by an analysis of existing barriers to the acquisition and dissemination of this information. The report concludes with a summary of recommendations from the witnesses on the role of the Federal Government, and an overview of legislative activity during 1984. (THC)
