Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD. Center for Research in Scientific Communication.
Approximately one year after the February 1968 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), all authors who had presented material at the Conference were sent follow-up questionnaires (copy appended), designed to ascertain (1) how much of the program material had been submitted for journal publication during the year, (2) what outlets have been selected, (3) what types of revisions were required before acceptance of manuscripts, (4) what reasons were given for non-acceptance of manuscripts by journals, (5) what were the policies regarding page charges in educational research journals, and (6) what types of post-meeting dissemination in addition to journals publication had the authors planned. Data were also obtained concerning those authors who had not submitted their material for journal publication in the year following the meeting. Authors of symposium papers were also sent the follow-up questionnaires a year after the meeting. Findings of the study are presented and the role of the AERA meeting in the dissemination of educational research is discussed. (Author/CC)
