IDENTIFICATION OF SOURCES OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH MATERIALS.
KENT, ALLEN
THE OBJECTIVES WERE--(1) TO ASSESS THE VALUE OF VARIOUS APPROACHES TO THE IDENTIFICATION AND ACQUISITION OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH MATERIALS, (2) TO ASSESS THE VALUE OF PRESENT PROCEDURES, (3) TO PRESENT A LIST OF PERIODICALS, GROUPED ACCORDING TO ESTIMATED YEARLY YIELD SO THAT DECISIONS CAN BE MADE TO SUBSCRIBE OR TO SCAN REGULARLY, (4) TO PRESENT A REPRESENTATIVE LIST OF SOURCE MATERIALS USEFUL IN DEVELOPING THE PROGRAM TO DATE, AND (5) TO OFFER SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN ACTIVE IDENTIFICATION AND ACQUISITION PROGRAM. PRIMARY SOURCES WERE DIVIDED INTO HIGH-YIELD AND LOW-YIELD JOURNALS (USING THE FACTOR OF MORE OR LESS RELEVANT ARTICLES PER YEAR). THE HIGH-YIELD JOURNALS FORMED A BASIC SUBSCRIPTION LIST, AND THE LOW-YIELD JOURNALS, A BASIC SCANNING LIST. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITIES AND PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS ASKING THEM TO LIST PUBLISHED AND UNPUBLISHED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH. THE LIST OF HIGH- AND LOW-YIELD JOURNALS WERE FOUND TO PROVIDE A SOUND BASIS FOR AN ACQUISITION PROGRAM. CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF AN EFFECTIVE PROGRAM WILL HAVE TO BE DETERMINED UNDER OPERATIONAL CONDITIONS. (HB)
