A Case Study in Indexing and Classification in the Sociology of Education. Development of Ideas Concerning the Organisation of Material for Literature Searching. Report for the Period September 1970-June 1973. Volume Two.
Swift, D. F.; And Others
This second volume of the two-part project report describes the indexing system, developed by the research team and cooperating subject experts, designed to provide access to the literature in the field of educational sociology in a manner which will allow more flexible patterns of approach by the users of the system. The general system rationale is presented, followed by charts detailing the scheme of intellectual organization used. The bulk of this volume consists of the sample index and bibliography. Articles from 19 British and American journals, published in 1971, were used in this prototype. Citations are annotated and listed by author. Eight separate indexes will provide access to these documents through varying perspectives: 1) theories and models, 2) methodology used or discussed, 3) affiliation with an area defined by a journal policy, 4) affiliation with an area defined by a "significant author", 5) affiliation with an area defined by current interest, 6) variables 7) sample 8) geographic location of investigation. Each index is described in terms of scope, range of documents and range of thinking covered, and proposed structure. (SL)
