ABSTRACT
This article reports a summary of doctoral research activity in social studies education based on dissertation abstracts for the period, 1977 to mid-1982. The report is based on a study conducted in 1983 for the ERIC Clearinghouse for Social Studies/ Science Education. From the abstracts of 394 dissertations the types of research, the productivity of graduate institutions, topics, and subject categories were tabulated. Results showed that descriptive studies dominated, northeastern universities produced the most doctorates, the largest portion were studies of curriculum materials, and the largest number concerned broad field or general social studies.
