Swedish Educational Research in the Early Eighties.
Bjerstedt, Ake, Ed.
As an aid to foreign visitors and educational researchers overseas, this survey presents an overview of current educational research in Sweden's research departments in education. The booklet's introduction first summarizes the historical development and present organization of Swedish educational research and describes current trends, interest areas, and debates among educational researchers. The authors then give profiles of the country's 10 major educational research departments and of the 4 major organizations funding the research. For the departments, each profile contains a general description, a summary of its research program or a list of its research projects, and a note on how its results are reported. Included are university research departments and institutes at Gothenburg/Molndal, Linkoping, Lund, Malmo, Stockholm, Umea, and Uppsala. The booklet also describes each funding source's organization, duties or activities, grants, and information dissemination methods. Included are the National Board of Education, National Board of Universities and Colleges, Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Fund, and Swedish Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences. A brief listing of bibliographies and reference works on current educational research in Sweden concludes the handbook. (Author/RW)
