A Plan For a Publication Network For Rapid Dissemination of Technical Information.
This paper describes an alternative to current information dissemination systems (letter journals), computerized information systems, and clearinghouse operations) that would establish a network of depositories at universities and research organizations. The essence of the approach is to provide convenient access to working papers and technical reports on a basis that could be self-supporting for the sponsoring institutions and remunerative for the authors. The paper describes the technical procedures of the plan and proposes a pilot project that would implement the plan on a small scale to a selected group of graduate schools of business. The proposal includes organizational considerations, dissemination networks, and financial analysis. It is hoped that the possibilities for the pilot implementation can be explored further. (CH)
