A Century of Graduate Research Productivity in Extension Family and Consumer Sciences
Scholl, Jan
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n4 p23-28 2013
For many years, overall graduate research productivity has been reported annually by several authors in the December issue of the "Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal." The knowledge gleaned from a century's worth of Extension studies is valuable because it can improve our ability to build on prior research, particularly aiding researchers in their review of the literature. This article describes Extension FCS graduate research conducted over the course of the past century. The studies reported reflect the times in which they were conducted, the interest in special needs of the audiences, and Extension workers as professionals. The findings of this study also may be a step toward the establishment of a research agenda for Extension FCS.
