intend it to be a survey base for a statistical study. Rather, we are interested in facts, interpretations, opinions, and real examples that will help us gain insight into the main issues of the study. We also are seeking illustrative material that we can use to communicate the situation to the scientific and governmental establishments.
The goal of our study is to help improve access to scientific data and services internationally. We therefore hope that your interests are common with ours, and that you will assist us by providing your views on these issues by taking some time to fill out and return this form. We recognize that not every respondent is likely to be able to comment on every question, and we do not wish to have the specific questions to be a limit on what you wish to inform us about. Therefore, please skip any questions that you do not feel you can address meaningfully, and add any points that you would like for us to know or consider. Feel free to use additional pages or attach other pertinent information if you have more that you wish to say to us.
Please send your response and any related documentation by 31 January 1996 to:
