A Computer-Produced Index to Current Scientific Research in Israel.
Keren, C.; And Others
A system which lists current research in Israel in the natural sciences, medicine, agriculture and technology was inaugurated in 1967. This system now includes 4,000 current research projects on which 3,500 individual researchers are engaged. This represents about 90% of all scientists doing non-defense research in Israel. The system is run on an IBM 360/30 model computer and updated periodically. Individual questionnaires completed by the scientists serve as input and a printed directory is produced as output. The research projects are classified by an expanded COSATI Subject Heading List. Three indexes - of researchers, organizations and an edited KWOC (Keywords-Out-of-Context) index of titles - provide multiple approaches to the text. The administration of the system, its input, output and computer operation are described in detail. The system's value to information suppliers and users is discussed, and features characteristic to it are described.
