NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project: Chronology of Selected Literature, Reports, Policy Instruments, and Significant Events Affecting Federal Scientific and Technical Information (STI) in the United States, 1945-1990. Report Number 11.
Pinelli, Thomas E.; And Others
The chronology is a comprehensive bibliography covering a variety of selected literature, reports, policy instruments, and significant events affecting federal scientific and technical information (STI) from 1945 to 1990. It includes some publications and events of historic interest that relate to the evolution of aerospace and aerospace knowledge diffusion. The chronology is descriptive and is designed to provide both an overview of the field and access to primary sources. Two approaches were used in compiling the chronology, both placing aerospace knowledge diffusion in the context of STI resulting from federally-funded National Aeronautics and Space Administration/Department of Defense (NASA/DoD) research and development. The first focuses on the production, transfer, and use of federally-funded STI, and places STI within the context of information policy, information security classification, information technology, intellectual property, national security, and technology transfer. The second focuses on federal attempts at nurturing technological innovation and stimulating economic competitiveness, and places STI within the context of federal science and technology policy and federal economic, tax, and trade policy. Each of the 512 entries has been given an item number and items are arranged by columns. To provide an overview of federal STI development, the entries are generally arranged by date of publication and event. Information provided for each entry includes the year of the event, report, or policy instrument; the author; bibliographic number; sponsor; and comments about its major findings, recommendations, or significance. The ISBN number is provided for books and complete citations are given for journal articles. To increase utility and access, the chronology has seven appendices: a chronology of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC); chronology of the National Technical Information Service (NTIS); chronology of NASA STI; Index of Executive Orders; Index of Public Laws; Index of Popular Common Names for Studies; and A Glossary of Acronyms.
