Hutton, G. R., MacDonald, B. H. & Wells, P. G. (2009). Communicating Environmental Information in Global Contexts: Addressing Barriers Through Digital Technologies. 5th Annual Social Informatics Research Symposium, Vancouver, British Columbia, November 7, 2009.
Can Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) help to overcome barriers that prevent effective dissemination and use of scientific information, especially information addressing serious environmental concerns? Drawing primarily on evidence of use of publications produced by a UN-based intergovernmental organization, this study examines how ICTs can be used to promote both the dissemination and use of environmental grey literature.
