Information Services on Research in Progress: A Worldwide Inventory. Final Report.
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. Science Information Exchange.
This international directory of existing information systems and services on ongoing research includes descriptions of planned systems and services, those under development, and those which are fully operational, as well as several institutional initiatives which represent innovative approaches to the field. Data collection for the inventory was organized through the UNISIST Programme of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Smithsonian Science Information Exchange (SSIE). The directory is organized in three principal parts. In the first part a narrative overview combines an examination of the contents of the inventory with a selective review of the available literature on the state of the art. The second part contains profiles of the individual systems and services identified as a result of the UNISIST/SSIE data collection. The final part consists of four indexes to the system and service profiles: (1) organization and system names; (2) acronyms; (3) names of individuals responsible; and (4) subject areas covered.
