Seminar on Foci for Progress in Scientific Publications: A Summary and Final Report.
Battelle Memorial Inst., Columbus, OH.
A one-day seminar was convened on November 4, 1969, to consider problems involved in communicating scientific information and the progress that has been made in improving the scientific publication mechanism. Thirty participants representing different types of information producers, users, and organizations contributed to the seminar discussion. Technologies that have facilitated machine-readable data bases were found to have materially facilitated the preparation of a variety of information products that are needed for both large collection and special interest group purposes. Additional research and lower costs are considered necessary to permit the extensive exploitation of time-shared, computer-based networks, but current hardware capabilities indicate that direct user involvement at individually accessible consoles is possible and is expected to materially aid the development of well-organized, user-oriented information bases.
