The Publishing Behavior of Graduate Students in Reading.
A questionnaire was sent to 166 graduate students from the Reading Center files in the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University during the years 1965-70. Ninety-five percent responded. Publication was reported by 19 percent of the respondents. Another 38 percent wrote unpublished curriculum materials that were reproduced and distributed in their school systems. Analysis indicated that (1) college teachers published more than any other group of teachers, (2) teachers published more than nonteachers, (3) those with more than 5 years of experience, (4) doctoral students published more than masters students, (5) those who elected a course in developing materials for publication published more than those who did not, and (6) students who published their work used reading factors more frequently than those who wrote unpublished curriculum materials. Literature in the wide area of higher education and the more narrow areas of educational research, psychology, sociology, and science was reviewed to deal with publishing behavior in these allied fields. Tables and a bibliography are included. (Author/AW)
