Title: GROUP WRITER A WORD PROCESSOR FOR COLLABORATIVE DOCUMENT PREPARATION
Authors: Malcolm, Nicholas
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Jun-1991
Abstract: Group-writing, in which a document is produced jointly by a team of writers, occurs widely in both science and industry. Group-writing is both time and labor intensive, and is not specifically supported by current generation word processors. Consequently there is much interest in developing computer-based tools to support group-writing. This thesis surveys some of the issues behind group-writing, its occurrence in the scientific community, and cognitive aspects of writing, in order to derive some requirements which should be satisfied by such a system. A prototype group-writing system is then presented, which can serve as a basis for further experiments on how best to provide computer support for group-writing.
