The lack of research on the effects of decisions of the National Labor Relations Board is one of the more important gaps in our analysis of industrial and labor relations. The need for such research, the kinds of problems which might be studied, and the reasons for the present lack of work in this area are discussed by the author, who urges that university researchers direct attention to study of the impact of NLRB decisions.
