Expanding the Benefits of Manpower Research. Final Report.
Klein, Lawrence R.
This project, during a little more than two years of operation, used an interdisciplinary group of graduate students to adapt and rewrite the findings of selected studies sponsored by the Office of Research and Development in order to broaden the audience for those findings. The objective was to promote application of the findings by making them understandable to members of target groups who would otherwise be unaware of them. The final report assesses the experience in order to develop: (1) suggestions which other universities could use to plan, organize, and carry out similar projects; (2) guidelines for improving the quality of manpower research to facilitate maximum use of the findings; and (3) practical advice for manpower researchers on how to improve the quality of writing and analysis in their reports.
