Abstract:

The basic thesis of the study is that any attempt to develop an effective scientific and technical information system whether intragovernmental, intranational, or international must include the establishment of adequate and effective distribution controls designed to protect the valid vested interests extant in scientific and technical information today. Primary emphasis in the study is on one intragovernmental system, the DoD S and TI system, and the problem of distribution controls within it. The study consists of three parts. The initial part of the study is an attempt to define the fundamental parameters on which any system of distribution controls must be built. Appendix A is a reproduction of an earlier informal analysis of distribution control problems within the DoD that stimulated the preparation of the study. Appendix B contains a discussion of possible approaches to the solution of the distribution control problem, based on points developed in the initial part of the study and in Appendix A.
