Academic links and communications
This book is concerned with communication between academics. It stems from a five-year international study of transport and communications supported by the European Science Foundation as part of the Barriers to Communication programme of NECTAR. The research team included members from Austria, Switzerland, the UK, Israel, Sweden and The Netherlands. The aim of the research was to see what media are employed by academics when communicating with other researchers and teachers. Further, it seeks to explore the barriers which exist to such communication.
