This report presents scope and plans for an air transportation research information service (ATRIS) that would provide the user community with abstracts of documents and resumes of research projects that relate to the air transport field. The general design for the service is similar to that of other Transportation Research Board modally oriented services for highway (HRIS), railroad (RRIS), and maritime (MRIS) research information. Thus ATRIS would not only serve special needs for air transport information, but used in conjunction with the other modal services could provide for full coverage of transportation research information. The potential user community for ATRIS services and products is discussed; recommendations are made for specific types of interactions between ATRIS and the user community. Input scope is presented in terms of twenty-one subject areas and sixteen types of information. Output scope is presented in terms of announcement bulletins, special bibliographies, and batch-mode and on-line retrieval services. The report includes an implementation plan for the first three years of ATRIS development and operations. The plan contains specific proposals for input-output operations in each year, cost estimates for the proposed operations, and funding strategies for meeting the cost requirements through support from sponsors, institutional supporters, and user charges.
