Informology [ettela’shenasi] is a new science in the field of Information Science and “knowledge science”[danesh-shenasi] (the erstwhile librarianship and information science) on the one hand and in information philosophy on the other. Its method, designated ‘Method of Information Analysis” [ravesh-e tahlil-e ettela’ shenakhti, RTA], consists of a set of activities in six stages, which tries to determine the general mood of a thing or phenomenon from an information point of view [informativity]. This method possesses certain capacities and possibilities that reveal themselves in the various areas of knowledge through interdisciplinary studies.
Text redacting, whose theoretical deliberations in Iran, relative to its practical considerations, have remained rather thinner, is one of the areas to which RTA could contribute.
In the present enquiry, it has been demonstrated that a redactor first tries to understand his text. In the second stage, he becomes acquainted with the setting and mood in which that text has originated and lived. The third stage constitutes the process of recognizing the favorable condition that the redactor is supposed to attain. In the fourth stage, the distance between the present condition and the desired condition is calculated. In the fifth stage where one has already identified the obstacles on the way to the desirable condition, one endeavors to remove them. Finally, in the sixth stage, the amount of time required to change the existing condition to the desired one is estimated.
