International Council of Scientific Unions, Paris (France).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
In view of the vital role which scientific and technical information has come to play in the development of nations, the Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) was authorized to undertake and to complete jointly with the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) a feasibility study on the establishment of a world science information system (UNISIST). A Unesco/ICSU Central Committee was created in January 1967 to carry out the feasibility study. The conclusions of this study and a description of the proposed World Science Information System are contained in the Study Report, of which this is a synopsis. A description of UNISIST, its background, trends toward cooperations, recommendations, and implementation plans, program priorities and benefits and values are summarized. Appendices include a listing of the members and the working groups. (Author/AB)
