Sources of Recent Educational Information.
Thomas, R. Murray
Scholars and practitioners in the field of international and comparative education often need information about recent educational events related to the topics they are currently investigating. In pursuing their research, those who are relatively new to the task may wonder which sources will most readily provide data, analyses, or interpretations they seek. This paper offers suggestions about ways to identify such sources and about advantages and disadvantages of the various options. The discussion is divided into two parts. Part 1, entitled "Studying Distant Sites," describes 11 sources available to investigators. These include scholarly journals, theses and dissertations, government agencies, and international and foreign agencies. Part 2, entitled "Studying Immediate Sites," describes sources available to investigators who can spend time in the country or district they are studying. (RR)
