TECHNICAL EDITING AND HIGHWAY RESEARCH

IN SOME INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH ORGANIZATONS, AS MUCH AS 10 PERCENT OF THE COST OF A PROJECT COULD BE SPENT ON THE PROJECT REPORT SINCE THE FRUITS OF RESEARCH ARE PASSED ON TO OTHERS BY WRITINGS AND DRAWINGS. IT WAS FURTHER REALIZED THAT MOST RESEARCH STAFFS NEEDED SOMEONE SKILLED IN SUCH COMMUNICATION, OTHER THAN THE AVERAGE ENGINEER. THIS ARTICLE TELLS HOW A STATE SUPPORTED HIGHWAY RESEARCH ORGANIZATION ATTEMPTED TO SATISFY THIS NEED - HOW IT MAKES USE OF A TECHNICAL WRITER.
