PART I REPORTS A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF LISTING MANUSCRIPTS SHORTLY AFTER THEIR EDITORIAL ACCEPTANCE, BY TITLE AND AUTHOR'S NAME AND ADDRESSES, IN LONG-PUBLICATION-LAG, CORE PSYCHOLOGICAL JOURNALS. TWO SAMPLES WERE SURVEYED--(1) 609 AUTHORS OF AN EQUAL NUMBER OF LISTED MANUSCRIPTS, AND (2) REQUESTERS OF ABOUT 2,600 REQUESTS DIRECTED TO 603 AUTHORS OVER A 7-MONTH TRIAL PERIOD. FINDINGS ARE PRESENTED UNDER THE HEADINGS--(1) PRIOR DISSEMINATION OF CONTENTS OF LISTED MANUSCRIPT, (2) INFORMATION EXCHANGE ACTIVITIES RESULTING FROM LISTINGS, (3) THE "STIMULUS" FOR REQUESTING COPIES, (4) CHARACTERISTICS OF REQUESTORS AND A COMPARISON OF THEIR AND AUTHORS' ACTIVITIES IN AREA OF LISTED MANUSCRIPT, (5) EFFECTS OF THE WORK OF AUTHORS AND REQUESTORS OF INFORMATION EXCHANGES GENERATED THROUGH LISTED MANUSCRIPTS, AND (6) AUTHORS' OPINION OF LISTINGS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING THE INNOVATION. PART II ASSESSES THE UTILIZATION AND EFFECTS OF AN INNOVATION IN WHICH A TRIAL EDITION OF PRE-CONVENTION PUBLICATION CONTAINING CONTRIBUTED PAPERS OF FIVE APA DIVISION WAS ISSUED APPROXIMATELY TWO MONTHS PRIOR TO THE 1965 APA MEETING. SAMPLES OF AUTHORS, REQUESTORS, AND ATTENDANTS WERE SURVEYED RELATIVE TO PROCEEDING PAPERS AND TO A CONTROL GROUP OF PAPERS NOT PUBLISHED IN THE PROCEEDINGS. ADDITIONALLY, A SURVEY OF IMMEDIATE READERSHIP OF PROCEEDING PAPERS WAS CONDUCTED. FINDINGS ARE PRESENTED UNDER THE GENERAL HEADINGS--91) CHARACTERISTICS OF RESPONDENT GROUPS , (2) SCIENTIFIC COMMUNICATION BASED UPON PROCEEDINGS AND CONTROL PAPERS, (3) READERSHIP OF PROCEEDINGS ARTICLES AND RELATIONSHIP OF READERSHIP TO DIVISIONAL SPONSORSHIP, AND (4) RESPONDENTS' INVOLVEMENT IN SUBJECT-MATTER AREAS OF PRESENTATIONS AND EFFECT OF COMMUNICATION SURROUNDING THE PRESENTATION ON THEIR SUBSEQUENT WORK.
