The International Relations Archive undertakes as its primary goals the acquisition, management and dissemination of international affairs data. The first document enclosed is a copy of the final machine readable codebook prepared for the data from the Political Events Project, 1948-1965. Also included is a copy of the final machine-readable codebook for Dimensions of Conflict Behavior Within and Between Nations: 1955-1960. The Voluntary International Coordination technical report forms the second portion of the document. The VIC project undertakes work in three areas: 1) organization of conferences to encourage convergence among quantitative international affairs projects on theoretical priorities for data generation and modelling, variable definitions, coding rules and quality control; 2) allocation of small grants to initiate important data generation projects; and, 3) development of computer based models for conflict management. The first part of this section is a paper, "New Modes of Scientific Communication", which discusses the Inter-University Comparative Foreign Policy Conference held at Ohio State in 1970. The second part is a codebook for data on "two-party" disputes. (Author/JBL)
