Cost Effectiveness of Information Systems.
American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
The values of an information service depend primarily upon two things: they either save time or they increase the literature coverage. This study attempts to measure these factors from data gathered by a questionnaire which was sent to a selected group of industrial chemists. Thus the habits of a statistically meaningful sample of industrial chemists in their use of information services were explored and a crude model for at least a semiquantitative determination of the cost-effectiveness of information systems was developed.
