Spin-dependent asymmetries have been measured in inclusive deep-inelastic scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons by longitudinally polarized protons. Data were obtained at a scattering angle of 10°and for incident energies of 16.2 and 22.7 GeV, which cover the kinematic range 0.18<x<0.70 and 3.5<Q2<10.0 (GeV/c)2. The present results provide a test of scaling and of the Bjorken and Ellis-Jaffe sum rules and are compared with various models of proton spin structure.
