A Survey of Authors on the Publication Practices in Meteorology.
Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore, MD. Center for Research in Scientific Communication.
This study was designed to explore the following three issues: (1) What leads an author to submit his manuscript to a particular journal? (2) What are the subject areas covered and what is the nature of the treatment (descriptive, analytical, theoretical, etc.) in articles published in these journals? (3) What are the main problems associated with the process of manuscript reviewing in these journals? The main sample was taken in 1967 and consisted of 163 authors who wrote 202 articles chosen from six meteorological journals, including two foreign journals. In 1968, there were 67 additional responses from authors writing in the same 6 journals. Approximately equal treatment is given to each of the above questions. Results are tabulated in nine tables, and interpretive comments are made. (PR)
