Improving the Dissemination of Scientific and Technical Information: A Practitioner's Guide to Innovation. (Final Report).
Capital Systems Group, Inc., Rockville, MD.
The aim of this guide is to alert persons with an operational interest in scientific communication to new ideas, techniques, and equipment in the field of communication media and publications. The focus is on the dissemination of scientific information via the technical journal or its equivalent. Secondary dissemination of information such as bibliographies, data bases, and services are treated incidentally. The guide is organized into five sections: innovations in conventional journal and monography publishing, print-on-paper alternatives, non-print-on-paper and mixed media innovations, trends and prospects, and innovations needed. Each section is subdivided into individual entries describing particular processes or innovations. This guide has been designed as an "idea book" to help small scientific societies, journals, and publishers as well as to increase general awareness of innovations and stimulate development of new ideas.
