The Subsequent Dissemination of Material Presented in Sessions of the Metallurgical Society at the 96th AIME Annual Meeting.
Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD. Center for Research in Scientific Communication.
Studies of 255 authors of program material at the Metallurgical Society session of the 96th American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) Annual Meeting yielded data on the subsequent dissemination of presented material during the year following the meeting. Data showed that three-fourths of the authors who made pre-meeting oral or written reports of their work also published or planned to publish journal articles on it subsequent to the meeting. Less than a tenth of the work received no pre-meeting report and was not intended for post-meeting journal publication. Most of the program material for which journal publication was planned appeared within a year of the meeting. A substantial percentage would be submitted during the second year after the meeting. Material not submitted for journal publication was typically available in other formats or was inappropriate for such dissemination. (Author/CC)
