The Radiation Effects Information Center staff have determined that the Monthly Accession List is being used for retrospective searches as well as a current awareness facility. Consequently, the staff and the sponsor feel that an adequate index should be supplied to serve as a rapid search tool. The inverted concept-coordinate index is based upon terms generated in the REIC subject files. The index is cumulative throughout the year, and the staff will provide a dual dictionary at the end of each contract year to facilitate the retrospective search capabilities for the accession list abstracts. The index is subdivided into two sections. The first, Radiation Environment, includes dosimetry and energy aspects of all electromagnetic and particulate radiation sources, with the exception of space radiation. Section two deals with materials, properties, secondary environment including space environments, devices, and all other subject concepts. An author section and a generating organization section will be added to the index quarterly. Under each concept term in the index are listed the accession numbers of the abstracts which have been indexed by that term. Links have been added where necessary to obviate improper coordination with the resulting false retrieval. Experience demonstrated that only four of the proposed EJC standard role indicators would have been required with any significant number of the entries.
