Problems and Issues in International Educational Research Exchange.
Saif, Philip S.
The problems of international educational research exchange were examined. The definition of educational research is not universal. Styles and emphasis of research differ. European publications are similar to United States publications. The research methodology used by most Third World countries is often radically different from American methods. The American researcher should be acquainted with the philosophical foundation of education in a foreign country and aware of current educational research conducted there in order to prevent misunderstandings. Sources for this knowledge include American graduate students with a working knowledge of other languages; educational researchers and professors of education; and non-American graduate students living in the United States. The author recommends several methods for the resolution of these information exchange problems. The American Educational Research Association (AERA) could be instrumental in this effort. (DWH)
