Multidimensional Scaling: A Historical Sketch and Bibliography.
A bibliography with approximately 1,000 references to articles on multidimensional scaling (MDS) is preceded by a summary review tracing the major developments in the areas covered, and identifying significant references in each. With the exception of a few earlier documents, the period covered is 1966 to 1978. Topics mentioned in the summary review include: indirect metric MDS; direct metric MDS; distance versus content models; metric versus nonmetric approaches; nonmetric MDS; individual differences MDS; conjoint measurement approach; dual (optional) scaling approach; evaluative studies of nonmetric MDS; and other topics. A large number of relevant computer programs, articles, and books are mentioned, including some books on cluster analysis, a topic which is otherwise omitted from the bibliography. (CTM)
