Abstract : A variety of approaches were used to examine ways in which the social and behavioral sciences may be of use to policy, plans and operations of the Air Force. These approaches included documentary analyses, participant observation, interviews of research users and producers, and observations of use in a training program. Special attention was given to the utilization of social science research for dealing with international affairs, the problems of personnel in hostile custody, the selection and assessment of officers for responsible and sensitive roles, and the education of officers.
