Reliability and Validity of the Sensation-Seeking Scale: Psychometric Problems in Form V.
Ridgeway, Doreen; Russell, James A.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v48 n5 p662-64 Oct 1980

Other evidence, however, suggested that measurement problems continue to hamper research: the total score was moderately reliable, but the subscales were only marginally so. (Author)
