Weedman, Judith
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v43 n3 p257-67 Apr 1992
Reports on a study which examined communication patterns of three related professional groups--editors, book reviewers, and scholars of children's literature. Findings are presented on the boundary-spanning communication structure and its formal and informal components, differences between the professions, differences between central and peripheral individuals, and boundary-spanning compared to group-specific media.
