NASA/DoD aerospace knowledge diffusion research project. results of the phase 1 mail survey--avionics and electrical components and subsystems perspective by Thomas E Pinelli( Book )

As part of Phase 4 of the NASA/DoD Aerospace Knowledge Difffusion Research Project, two studies were conducted that investigated the technical communications practices of Japanese and U.S. aerospace engineers and scientists. Both studies have the same seven objectives: first, to solicit the opinions of aerospace engineers and scientists regarding the importance of technical communications to their profession; second, to determine the use and production of technical communications by aerospace engineers and scientists; third, to seek their views about the appropriate content of an undergraduate course in technical communications; fourth, to determine aerospace engineers' and scientists' use of libraries, technical information centers, and on-line data bases; fifth, to determine the use and importance of computer and information technology to them; sixth, to determine their use of electronic networks; and seventh, to determine their use of foreign and domestically produced technical reports. A self-administered questionnaire was distributed to aerospace engineers and scientists in Japan and at the NASA Ames Research Center and the NASA Langley Research Center. The completion rates for the Japanese and U.S. surveys were 85 and 61 percent, respectively. Responses of the Japanese and U.S. participants to selected questions are presented in this report

The U.S. government technical report is a primary means by which the results of federally funded research and development (R and D) are transferred to the U.S. aerospace industry. However, little is known about this information product in terms of its actual use, importance, and value in the transfer of federally funded R and D. To help establish a body of knowledge, the U.S. government technical report is being investigated as part of the NASA/DoD aerospace Knowledge Diffusion Research Project. In this report, we summarize the literature on technical reports and provide a model that depicts the transfer of federally funded aerospace R and D via the U.S. government technical report. We present results from two surveys of our investigation of aerospace knowledge diffusion vis-a-vis the U.S. government technical report and close with a brief overview of on-going research into aerospace knowledge diffusion focusing on the role of the industry-affiliated information intermediary.

Phase 3 of a four part study was undertaken to investigate the use of scientific and technical information (STI) in the academic aerospace community. Phase 3 of this project used three questionnaires that were sent to three groups (i.e., faculty librarians, and students) in the academic aerospace community. Specific attention was paid to the types of STI used and the methods in which academic users acquire STI. This report focuses on the responses of academic libraries. Demographic information on academic aerospace libraries is provided. Data regarding NASA interaction with academic aerospace libraries is also included as is the survey instrument

An evaluation of selected NASA scientific and technical information products : results of a pilot study by Thomas E Pinelli( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pilot study was conducted to evaluate selected nasa (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) scientific and technical information (sti) products. The study, which utilized survey research in the form of a self-administered mail questionnaire, had a two-fold purpose--to gather baseline data on the use and perceived usefulness of selected nasa sti products by aeronautical engineers and scientists and to develop/validate questions that could be used in a future study on the role of the U.S. government technical report in aeronautics. The study population comprised 2,000 randomly selected members of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (aiaa) with academic, government, or industrial affiliations in the United States; 353 usable questionnaires were received by the cutoff date. The results showed: (1) the surveyed engineers and scientists are ardent consumers of sti, with the highest use rate for nasa technical reports (77.6%), followed by NASA-authored journal articles (68.7%) and NASA-authored conference/meeting papers (66.6%); (2) of the engineers and scientists who attended NASA-sponsored conferences and meetings (51.6%), 90% indicated that these conferences/meetings are important sources of information; (3) overall, the use rate for the nasa announcement and current awareness media is low, but those engineers and scientists familiar with them find these materials to be easy to use, current, and to have adequate scope and coverage; (4) over three fourths of those surveyed obtained nasa technical reports from their libraries and used these reports for research purposes; and (5) the surveyed engineers and scientists judged the nasa sti products to be of good quality, with the technical reports judged to have very good format/organization and adequacy and accuracy of both data and visual presentation. The text is supplemented by 50 tables and four appendixes, including copies of the survey instrument and data. (21 references) (ew)
