Webmaster of the PLANT TISSUE CULTURE INFORMATION EXCHANGE
750 members of the Plant Tissue Culture LISTSERV (PLANT-TC@tc.umn.edu) were surveyed to determine their readiness/willingness to use the World Wide Web as a tool for scientific information exchange. 106 responses were received.
The survey consisted of the following 7 questions: Have you ever used the World Wide Web? Do you connect to the Internet through a modem? Have you used a Web site to obtain a copy of a research paper? Should papers on the Web be peer reviewed? Are you recognized and rewarded for publishing on the Web? Are you a member of the Society for In Vitro Biology? Would the availability of a journal site on the Web influence your decision to join a professional society? Other comments:
Originally presented at the World Congress on In Vitro Biology, San Francisco, CA, June 22, 1996.
