|Abstract: ||The Internet and the Web Information Systems (WIS) create new channels
for communications between governments, corporations and individuals.
Governments collect, generate and disseminate vast amounts of
information. In a market driven and democratic society, this information
is vital to enhance the trust of citizens in their government and
institutions, and critical to individual and organizational
decision-making. This paper describes lessons learned from the
"EDGAR on the Internet" (EOI) project, an early demonstration
web information system (WIS) for disseminating corporate disclosure
documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Building on our experience with this system, and the emerging impact of
the Internet on the market for disclosure documents, we provide
guidelines for governments and information vendors to effectively adopt
and adapt to web-enabled innovations for data dissemination.|
