Introduction

Management is a compilation of references to unclassified reports and periodical articles on the subject of management that may be found in the NASA scientific and technical information system. The publication assembles groups of citations formerly announced in separate journals, Scientific and Technical Aerospace Reports (STAR) and International Aerospace Abstracts (IAA), to provide management with a convenient information tool.

The first issue (NASA SP-7500) covered material generated or sponsored by NASA during the period 1962 through 1967. The present issue covers the same period but the references are to material generated or sponsored by agencies other than NASA. As before, the selection of items for reannouncement was made on the basis of general interest, usefulness and applicability. but is by no means exhaustive.

For greater convenience the selected items are grouped in nine categories. These are shown in the table of contents with appropriate scope notes. The categories bear no relationship to those in STAR and IAA but have been specially chosen for this publication. Three indexes are provided—subject, personal author, and corporate source.

Items concerning management in the fields of reliability and quality assurance have for the most part been excluded. Such items appear in Reliability Abstracts and Technical Reviews (RATR), a monthly journal prepared for NASA by the Research Triangle Institute, Durham, North Carolina.

Many of the abstracts included in Management have been reproduced from those appearing in STAR and IAA. This procedure, adopted in the interests of economy, has introduced some variation in size, style, and intensity of type.

the symbol # following the accession number.
A number of publications, because of their special characteristics, are available only for
reference in the AIAA Technical Information Service Library.
Minimum air-mail postage to foreign countries is $1.00.
