Analysis of Journal Articles Presented in the Educational Administration Abstracts 1966-1975.
Klimes, Rudolf E.; Birkenstock, David
The purposes of this research were to determine which journals published the greatest number of articles in the different areas of educational administration and to list the number of journal articles in each area of educational administration. The number of articles in each area in the "Educational Administration Abstracts 1966-1975" was given as a percentage of the total number of articles, and the areas were ranked accordingly. The 21 journals having the largest number of articles for the period of the study were also ranked. The areas of curriculum and instruction and staff personnel received the major emphasis according to the number of articles published. Over 70 percent of the articles dealt with tasks of administration and administrative processes and organizational variables. Minority group relations and theory development account for almost 25 percent of the total. "Phi Delta Kappan" published the greatest number of articles on educational administration; however, there was no one journal that covered all the areas of educational administration. (Author/MLF)
