Organizational Communication: Abstracts, Analysis, and Overview. Volume 6.
Greenbaum, Howard H.; Falcione, Raymond L.
This annual volume of organizational communication abstracts presents over 1,100 abstracts of the literature on organizational communication occurring in 1979. An introductory chapter explains the classification systems, provides operational definitions of terms, and concedes the shortcomings of the research effort. An overview chapter comments extensively on the nature of the literature written in 1979, furnishing a considerable subclassification system for each of the nine major categories of organizational communication in this volume. The next two chapters present the abstracts under nine major classifications: (1) interpersonal communication, (2) intergroup communication, (3) intragroup communication, (4) communication factors and organziation goals, (5) skill improvement and training, (6) communication media (software and hardware), (7) communication system analysis, (8) research methodology, and (9) texts, anthologies, reviews, and general bibliographies. A list of literature sources, a discussion of research limitations, an author index, an index of organizational types in field studies, and an index of data collection methods in field studies are appended.
