Smart, Karl L.; And Others
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v42 n3 p474-81 Aug 1995
Argues that a holistic approach to defining quality is helpful to technical communicators, who often must ensure quality without knowing what is meant by quality in a given instance. Describes a holistic model of quality that includes four emphases: internal, external, subjective, and objective. Notes that the definition of quality differs according to the emphasis. (SR)
