発行日:1980年3月25日Published: March 25, 1980

The diffusion of scientific information is induced by complex, dynamic, and interrelated processes in communication. To comprehend the complex processes seems to be essential for those who clarify and solve problems in communication among scientific researchers.

The purpose of the present paper is to; (1) clarify the role of informal communication in research which plays a significant and critical part in complex diffusion processes in the science communication, (2) to review the current trends of studies on informal communication, (3) to pay consideration to formalization of informal communication systems.

In the recent years, some innovative ideas have been suggested in order to sophisticate and reorganize communication systems. One of the innovative suggestions is an attempt to formalize informal communication systems. Such experimental examples are introduced in the paper.
