Educational Journals in the Development of the Discipline: Issues and Problems. A Summary.
Bosco, James J.; Robin, Stanley S.
This paper summarizes the introduction to a symposium designed to articulate issues and problems relative to the functioning of journals. The symposium concerned itself with questions such as: Are journals useful or important in the dissemination of information among scientists? To what extent do journals constrain or stimulate the development of the discipline? Do the procedures for journal publication constrain the development of the discipline? In what ways do changing economic and social conditions jeopardize the continuation of journals? Is there a conflict between creating and perpetuating literature and financial concerns? What modifications in journals would improve their effectiveness? Those taking part in the symposium were Stanley Robin and James Bosco; Florence Levinsohn, Managing Editor of "School Review"; Stanley Elam, Editor of "Phi Delta Kappan"; and Melvin Novick of the "Journal of Educational Statistics." Lee Shulman served as discussant, providing an analysis of the problems and issues raised in the presentations. (WBC)
