America's Scholarly Societies Raise Their Flags Abroad.
McMurtrie, Beth
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n21 pA53-A54 Jan 28, 2000
Reports that greater numbers of scholarly societies, though American in name, are increasingly international in membership and outlook. Suggests that this trend has been driven by the expanding global outlook of scholars, the collapse of communism, and growth of the Internet. Efforts to encourage local professional societies, fears of American domination, and financial barriers to membership are also noted. (DB)
