Patterns of citations to articles within journals: a preliminary test of scatter, concentration and obsolescence by Maurice Bernard Line( Book )

6 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If citations are concentrated on a relatively small number of articles within individual journals as well as between different journals, selections of key articles can be published that should satisfy a high percentage of library demand for back runs at low purchase cost. To test this hypothesis, a test was carried out on self-citations in three journals in different scientific disciplines. The results show a considerable degree of concentration, though it differs from journal to journal. The relationship of self-citations as indicators of use is discussed, and a comparison was made with citations to the same journals in "Science Citation Index." The papers that were most frequently cited were different at different periods. The data also provided an opportunity to compare synchronous and diachronous obsolescence. Their differences are discussed and the latter is shown to depend on more variables than the former, but differences between the two were not demonstrable. Obsolescence rates were measured as the annual rate of decay in the probability that any one paper of a given age would be cited in any one paper in the same journal of a given year. (Author/NH)

Gleanings: The Minority Student Success Project by Barbara Leigh Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Minority Student Success Project (mssp) initiated in 1989 was designed to improve the recruitment and retention of minority students on campuses in the state of Washington. The results of a questionnaire on minority students administered to all of Washington's community colleges, and data from follow-up interviews, were used to design working retreats to develop minority success programs. Teams from 23 of the colleges attended the retreats in the winter and fall of 1990. Follow-up visits to the participating colleges by project staff in spring, 1991 revealed the following: (1) there was a strong commitment to minority student success; (2) schools with developed planning and coordinating structures had the greatest success; (3) strong leadership and sustained focus were critical; (4) communication and coordination with other initiatives enhanced program effectiveness; (5) there was a need for focused planning and the setting of short-term, realistic goals; (6) existing data needed to be examined and more widely shared; (7) serving minority students needed to be understood as a campus-wide responsibility, not just the job of a multicultural services office; (8) the reality of intercultural conflict needed to be squarely confronted; and (9) building campus commitment and infrastructure would be a long-term, developmental undertaking. The report concludes with a list of recommendations for the next steps to be taken, and brief descriptions of individual campus initiatives. Appendixes include a list of program participants and a list of questions for institutional self-evaluation. (Jsp)

Collaborative learning : a sourcebook for higher education by Anne Goodsell Love( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This sourcebook contains nine papers on various aspects of collaborative learning for students with emphasis on college level instruction (though some material relevant to secondary elementary education is also included).

Each section of the sourcebook contains an annotated bibliography, as well as a general bibliography containing the references cited in the articles reprinted in that section. Articles and their authors are as follows: "What Is Collaborative Learning?" (Barbara Leigh Smith, Jean T. MacGregor); "Collaborative Learning and the 'Conversation of Mankind'" (Kenneth A. Bruffee); "Collaborative Learning and Positive Change in Higher Education" (Karl A. Smith, David W. Johnson, Roger T. Johnson); "Collaborative Learning: Reframing the Classroom" (Jean T. MacGregor); "Teachers and Learning Groups: Dissolution of the Atlas Complex" (Donald L. Finkel, G. Stephen Monk); "Why Some Groups Fail: A Survey of Students' Experiences with Learning Groups" (Susan Brown Fiechtner, Elaine Actis Davis); "Student Involvement in Learning: Cooperative Learning and College Instruction" (Jim Cooper, Randal Mueck); "Collaborative Learning in the Classroom: A Guide to Evaluation" (Harvey S. Wiener); and "Research on Cooperative Learning: Consensus and Controversy" (Robert E. Slavin). The final section provides: (1) a listing of 50 colleges and universities implementing collaborative learning (with a program description and contact information); and (2) a listing of 5 collaborative learning networks (with descriptions and contact information).
