    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (621 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We present a study of marking automation derived from many researchers in a variety of areas in information and communication technology. It also creates links to disparate research outcomes and aggregates them in a conceptual meta-process. Semiautomation could be achieved by identifying some common sense solutions, which may appear as a single isolated action related to specific context. Knowing ... View full abstract»

    The concept of "offices without paper" originated during the 1980s. The primary idea behind this notion was that the application of computers and computer networking would decrease the amount of paper used in office work. Today, this same concept is understood as the computerization of all office work. In a similar vein "universities without paper" represents the promotion and employment of inform...
