Procedures for Writers in the Field of Adult Education: How To Make Your Writings More Consistently Accessible within Computerized Information Databases.
Adrian, Judith Gwinn
Educators who write documents or journal articles want to have their writing read and cited. To achieve this today, educators need to produce writings that are easily accessible through computerized searching (online and on compact disk) in databases. The trend toward end-users doing their own computerized information retrieval has caused database vendors to make changes that ease end-user frustration. In addition, writers can control certain components of the writing process to meet the goal of making their writing more easily located via computerized bibliographic or full-text database searching by end-users and intermediaries. Writers can (1) have a clear and unambiguous title, (2) provide a narrative abstract or annotation, (3) cite authors' names in a consistent format, (4) select appropriate words for the title and abstract, and (5) furnish an informative document title page.
