Crandell, Thomas L.; And Others
Technical Communication: Journal of the Society for Technical Communication, v43 n2 p157-63 May 1996
Compares revisions of the same chapter from a computer manual, one revision by a group using conventional revision techniques and another revision by a group using concept mapping. Finds that revision time was not significantly different between groups, nor were an editor's ratings, but that readers' comprehension was significantly higher with the concept-mapped versions. (SR)
