Title: Information indiscipline
Authors: Bankapur, M B
Issue Date: Dec-1986
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Information is being produced at an ever increasing rate. Out of this enormous abundance of information production, roughly 50 per cent is redundant. There is pollution of information due to uncontrolled starting of new publications. Publication of "rejected papers" through monopoly journals has created imbalances and indiscipline. Duplication, debasement of quality, restriction of documents, misleading titles, unplanned and uncoordinated and piecemeal growth of secondary periodicals are the major factors leading to information indiscipline. The rapid growth of page charge' system and enforcement of condition of membership to publish articles in some journals are leading to the emergence of a single body of contributors, irrespective of the merit of the papers.
