Creation of a Machine File and Subsequent Computer-Assisted Production of Publishing Outputs, Including a Translation Journal and an Index.
Buckland, Lawrence F.; Weaver, Vance
Reported are the findings of the Uspekhi experiment in creating a labeled machine file, as well as sample products of this system - an article from a scientific journal and an index page. Production cost tables are presented for the machine file, primary journals, and journal indexes. Comparisons were made between the 1965 predicted costs and the actual 1969 costs. Despite the greater 1969 production cost, the authors anticipated cost reductions with the implementation of advanced equipment; such as Cathode-ray tube (CRT) equipment, on-line PDP-8 editing equipment, adequate Photon disc and translation bridge from Scientific Keyboard Input Language (SKIL) to Scientific Information Processing Language (SIPL), and suitable character set for CRT typesetting equipment.
