Research in Brief

A year ago, we made some changes in the Research in Brief section. We hope you've found these changes beneficial. Three new editors have been appointed. In the area of Organizational Management and Administration, we can look forward to reviews by Keith L. Smith, leader, Personnel Development, Columbus, Ohio. Kay Rockwell, evaluation specialist, Lincoln, Nebraska, will keep us informed about Communication and Delivery Systems.

For those of us interested in Program Development and Evaluation, Barbara A. White, Kellogg Fellow, Bozeman, Montana, will be keeping us up-to-date. These editors replace Don Boesch (Missouri), Richard Carlson (Missouri), and Corrine Rowe (Idaho). Bill Boldt (New York) will continue as Educational Marketing editor and Patricia Tanner Nelson (Delaware) as Human Behavior editor.

If you have reviews you'd like to contribute to these sections, send them to the editor of that section or me, the Journal editor. Reviews should be no longer than one page, double-spaced. Include the following information: (1) title, (2) date, (3) author, (4) cost and where to obtain copies, and (5) brief summary.

We'll continue to see articles by Michael Patton (Minnesota), Futures editor, and Steve Scheneman (Virginia), Tools of the Trade editor. Both would welcome your ideas. You can send items directly to them me.
