People-environment studies offer a large body of knowledge so it is useful and necessary to document this potential, especially the bi-annual IAPS Conferences which started with IAPS 7 in 1982. Theoretical and empirical findings presented and discussed by IAPS, if disseminated to interested people and new members, can further develop people-environment research. With the new political situation in Eastern European countries, a new cross-fertilization of research is possible. Digital IAPS Proceedings, i.e. electronic publishing, would be a vehicle to disseminate expertise to eastern scientists at reasonable costs. The internet will take a more important position in people-environment sciences, so downloadable materials are of value and interest, also for IAPS public relations purposes.
