Abstract
THIS RESEARCH WILL EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INNOVATIVE, NETWORKING APPROACH TO EXCHANGE OF CANCER RESEARCH INFORMATION NOT NORMALLY PUBLISHED (SUCH AS NEGATIVE RESULTS). IT WILL DETERMINE WHETHER A BULLETIN TO WHICH READERS CONTRIBUTE SUCH ITEMS FOR PUBLICATION WILL, DURING AN INITIAL GRANT-SUPPORTED PERIOD OF FREE DISTRIBUTION, ATTRACT SUFFICIENT READERSHIP AND PARTICIPATION TO ALLOW THE PUBLICATION TO BECOME SELF-SUPPORTING. PHASE I OF THE PROJECT WILL INCLUDE (1) ASSESSMENT OF THE PROBABLE LEVELS OF SUBSCRIPTION AND OF CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE PLANNED BULLETIN; (2) SOLICITATION OF SUGGESTIONS FOR CHANGES IN THE INTENDED CONTENT; (3) PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF 6 MONTHLY ISSUES OF THE BULLETIN; (4) EVALUATION OF THE RESULTS AND DECISION CONCERNING CONTINUATION TO PHASE II OF THE PROJECT. THE BULLETIN WOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS: (1) CANCER RESEARCH ALERTS; (2) UNPUBLISHED RESEARCH RESULTS (CHIEFLY NEGATIVE RESULTS); (3) RESEARCH SUGGESTIONS AND QUESTIONS; (4) RESOURCES: REQUESTS AND OFFERS; (5) EDITOR'S CONTRIBUTIONS; (6) NETWORK FEEDBACK; AND (7) TEMPORARY POSITIONS. THE PROJECT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO AT LEAST TWO OF THE OBJECTIVES OF NCI (AS STATED IN THE SBIR SOLICITATION): TO SERVE "AS THE NATIONAL FOCAL POINT FOR INFORMATION ... ON STUDIES RELATED TO CANCER TREATMENT AND FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF SUCH INFORMATION TO APPROPRIATE SCIENTISTS AND PHYSICIANS"; AND TO CONDUCT "INFORMATION DISSEMINATION PROGRAMS TO EXPEDITE OPTIMAL USE OF NEW INFORMATION RELEVANT TO ...CANCER".
