Thirteen research reviews in this issue pertain to guidance and new careers organized under topics of: (1) Occupational Information, treating a career information service, a pilot computer-assisted guidance program, a junior high school program, and a study of information flow into secondary schools, (2) Careers, including a discussion of a national seminar on vocational guidance, a career development workshop, and a manual prepared for personnel developing a comparative guidance and placement program, (3) Research Reviews, discussing student selection and prediction of success, and guidance and counseling services, and (4) Student Interests and Experiences, reporting a student socioeconomic profile, vocational interests of nonprofessional women, techniques applied to maladjusted under-achievers, and career thresholds. "Plain Talk," a continuing column by the editor reports anticipated changes in future research reviews reflecting: (1) a teacher target audience, (2) problem-centered research, (3) a synthesis pointing out alternatives for action, (4) retention of the synthesis-application-dissemination theme, and (5) continued survey of the readership. A warning is voiced of the possibility of a dual-track system in vocational and general education in both the guidance and education functions. The bibliography lists 47 related studies and five document sources for further reading. (DM)
