The Maritime Administration's Maritime Research Information Service (MRIS), operated for the U.S. maritime industry, is a system for acquisition, selection, storage, retrieval, and dissemination of references to proposed, ongoing, and completed research and development projects and to technical reports and journal articles in the maritime field. It is designed to provide comprehensive information on what has been and is being done, by whom, and where, for those engaged in maritime industry research and for development program planners, administrators, and researchers in the transportation field and in related fields of study. In addition to U.S. research information, the data files as of 1977 also contain abstract information from the British Ship Research Association and the Ship Research Institute of Norway ("Ship Abstracts"). "MRIS Abstracts" is published and distributed every six months and contains approximately 1200-1500 abstracts during the period, as well as a key word and authors index, and a publisher/performing/funding agency list. The annual subscription price is $50 for 1977. MRIS also offers computerized literature searches of the data files to compile selected bibliographies with abstract, author, source of the document, and any of the other information in the system.
