The full citation of the original work for the Bordewijk & Van Kaam model is:

Bordewijk, J.L. & Van Kaam, B. (1982). Allocutie: 
enkele gedachten over communicatievrijheid in een 
bekabeld land. [Allocution. Thoughts on 
communication freedom in a cabled country.] Baarn: Bosch & Keuning.

The central idea of this model is described in an 
English-language journal publication:

Bordewijk, J.L., & Kaam, B. (1986). Towards a new 
clasification of tele-information services. Intermedia, 14 (1): 16-21.

Regarding the definitions of the terms in the 
model, including registration, these are described by McQuail, pp. 56-68, in:
McQuail, D. (1994). Mass communication theory. 
2nd ed 1987; reprinted 1994. London: Sage.

This last reference provides, by the way, the 
best substantive discussion of the model that is available.
