The April 1967 Annual Meeting of the American Geophysical Union was the subject of an investigation of scientific information exchange among geophysicists. The study focused on meeting presentation papers and drew a sample of 240 of the 800 presentation authors. The results of the meeting study demonstrated the currency of the work reported by these authors--the median date of inception of reported work was 13 to 15 months prior to the meeting and the median date by which the work was completed and first considered reportable was one year later or three months prior to the meeting. The study also revealed that most of the authors viewed their meeting presentations as interim reports of the work--83% indicated at the time of the meeting that they planned further dissemination of their work in journal article form. The report presents the findings on the formal publication of this material during the year following the 1967 meeting. (Author)
