The Status of Middle School Journals in NMSA Affiliate Associations.
Butler, Deborah A.; Dickinson, Thomas S.
This monograph reports on the results of a survey conducted to determine the state of journals published by affiliated organizations of the National Middle School Association. It attempts to provide a picture of the publishing resources in the profession as well as to provide sources of information for potential authors, curriculum makers, or general readers. Tables display information on the characteristics of the journals, publication schedules, editorial considerations, authors, audiences, and circulation. Problem areas discovered include: (1) lack compensation for editors; (2) lack of information about state and national conferences printed in the affiliate journals; and (3) a dearth of parent-student presence among the authors or audiences. A copy of the survey is appended. (JD)
