Research in Postsecondary Education, 1974. An Inventory of Research by Professors and Students in the Field of Higher Education.
Barak, Robert J.
This report represents both an attempt to update the two previous U.S. inventories on research in postsecondary education and a further plea for a regular and consistently-supported vehicle for collecting information or research in postsecondary education. Unlike previous research inventories, this effort is more selective in scope and content. It is centered on the current research activities of professors and graduate students in the field of higher education as listed in the 1973 Association of Professors of Higher Education (APHE) Directory. The central purpose of all these various attempts to inventory postsecondary education has been to disseminate information about current or recently completed research in higher education to bridge the information gap between the initiation of a research project and the publication of a report on the project in the literature of the field. It was hoped that such efforts would decrease the unnecessary duplication of effort and increase cooperation and collaboration among researchers. The inventory is divided as follows: How to use the inventory; the Inventory of Postsecondary Education Research; Research Index; and Topic Index Statistical figures accompany the text. (Author/PG)
