This bibliography is a survey of generally available recent studies and commentaries dealing with graduate education. "It covers the 4-year period, 1957-60"; but it also includes many earlier publications of exceptional interest and importance. It includes general studies of the various aspects of graduate education in the arts, sciences, and professions; "it does not include studies limited to graduate education in single academic or professional fields." The test for inclusion of an item has been its relevance to the great range of interests of deans of graduate schools, of graduate faculties and students, and of governmental and private agencies intimately concerned with graduate study and research. Only published works are listed, including some mimeographed or multilithed monographs, but drafts of work in progress are not. Book reviews, reprints (but not revised editions) of pre-1957 publications, and most brief summaries or preliminary reports of published studies have been omitted. Condensations, adaptations, and republications of articles are listed in combination with the original and annotated as a single item. Serial articles and recurring publications are usually also treated as a single item. Finally, although the bibliography includes studies of the American graduate student abroad and of international educational exchange programs, it does not include studies of foreign universities. An index is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
