THE FIRST THREE YEARS OF AERJ.
STANLEY, JULIAN C.
AN ANALYSIS WAS GIVEN OF THE INTELLECTUAL HERITAGE OF THE "AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL" (AERJ) AS REVEALED BY THE CONTENT OF THE 80 ARTICLES THAT APPEARED IN THE 12 ISSUES OF ITS FIRST 3 YEARS OF PUBLICATION. IN STATISTICAL TERMS, THE INVESTIGATOR PRESENTED THE RESULTS OF THE FOLLOWING ANALYSES--THE NUMBER OF ARTICLES CITING REFERENCES, THE NUMBER OF REFERENCES TO AN AUTHOR'S OWN PUBLISHED ARTICLES AND TO AN AUTHOR'S OWN PUBLISHED BOOKS, THE NUMBER OF REFERENCES TO BOOKS BY OTHER AUTHORS, THE NUMBER OF REFERENCES TO AN AUTHOR'S UNPUBLISHED ARTICLES AND TO OTHER UNPUBLISHED ARTICLES, THE JOURNALS MOST FREQUENTLY REFERENCED, THE PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS OF THE AUTHORS, AND THE NUMBER OF ARTICLES BY ONE, TWO, OR THREE AUTHORS. AN ANALYSIS SHOWED THAT THE PERIODICAL MOST REFERENCED WAS THE "JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY" WITH ABOUT 16 PERCENT OF THE REFERENCES. A LITTLE MORE THAN HALF OF THE ARTICLES HAD ONE AUTHOR, AND SIX OF THE 80 HAD THREE AUTHORS. OF THE 74 SENIOR AUTHORS, 88 PERCENT WERE MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION. THE INVESTIGATOR SUGGESTED THAT THE AERJ IS IN DIRECT COMPETITION WITH THE "JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY," AND OBSERVED THAT IN ITS FIRST 3 YEARS, AERJ HAD SERVED CHIEFLY AS A PUBLICATION OUTLET FOR EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SPECIALISTS IN EDUCATIONAL MEASUREMENT. A CONDENSED VERSION OF THIS PAPER WAS PUBLISHED IN "EDUCATIONAL RESEARCHER," VOLUME 18, NUMBER 4, JULY 1967. (AL)
