Shore, Arnold, Comp.
The main purpose of this reference volume on Outward Bound (OB) is to provide access to the research literature by giving the reader a sense of the state of the literature, providing analysis on salient research and programmatic issues, granting easy access to individual pieces of research, and opening up related research literatures. Section I is an overview of the research literature on OB presented in tabular form and listing title, author(s), topic, type of study, type of course, assessment, and whether or not the study's findings are reported in Section II. Explanations are provided on how to use the table and its relationship to other sections in the volume. Section II is a report on what has been learned about academic and research issues from the literature; it constitutes a review of empirical studies, covering research design, theory, special OB topics, and other observations. Section III consists of two types of summaries: (1) summaries by the author of this volume which include critical commentary; and (2) summaries in the words of the authors of the research. Section IV is an extensive bibliography of related research literatures organized under three major headings: (1) Education; (2) Psychology; and (3) Corrections. A minor heading "Other" is also included. The bibliography includes well over 1000 citations dating from the early 1900's to the present. Section III includes over 100 summaries by Shore and by the research authors covering OB from its inception to the present. (JC)
