    As the successor to Professor Teruo Kishi, the former Editor-in-Chief of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM), I would like to share some of STAM's journal history with our readers. STAM was launched in 2000 with the financial support of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in recognition of a strong need for an international journal that would be distributed and read across the globe. Five years later, the publication of STAM was transferred to the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) under the initiative of Professor Kishi. As a result of his work, STAM is now positioned as a high-impact journal, 3.512 as listed by the ISI 2011 Science Citation Index Journal Citation Report, with a much higher and faster growth than when I was participating as a co-founder in the past. STAM is well known as a successful open-access journal since shifting from the initial subscription model in 2008. As an editor, I would like to emphasize that STAM will continue to publish with a sense of social mission as an academic journal, allowing space for researchers to contribute to the sustainable development of society and health. However, some contribution from authors would assist us in creating a sustainable journal publishing model, and further enhance services to authors and readers of STAM. With this in mind, I would like to state that STAM's editorial board is planning to introduce an article processing charge from July 2013, in addition to NIMS' continuing financial support. One of our new editorial policies is to aim for reader-oriented publishing. I believe that academic journal publishing can take the role of navigator in advancing the development of materials. Among the many other scientific journals, STAM will lead the rapid growth in materials science, inspiring research into new materials for the future and leading the next generation of materials science and technology. It is my honor to work with members of

    Full Text Available Dear colleagues and readers of our journal, Last year there appeared one special issue of our journal, i.e., "Self-organization and collective behaviour in complex systems", alongside with three regular issues. This year we start with a special issue entitled "What is liquid?", in honour of Douglas Henderson, a member of our Editorial Board, dedicated to his 80th birthday. The collection of papers to appear in this issue is aimed at providing a critical review of the state of the art and of the open questions posed in the theory of liquids. The 2013 ISI impact factor of Condensed Matter Physics is 0.771. In total, 246 citations were made in 2014 on the articles published in our journal according to the ISI Web of Science data. It is our pleasure to list herein three most cited papers in 2014, which are: A.V. Khomenko, N.V. Prodanov, Molecular dynamics simulations of ultrathin water film confined between flat diamond plates, Condens. Matter Phys., 2008, 11, 615; A. Honecker, S. Wessel, Magnetocaloric effect in quantum spin-s chains, Condens. Matter Phys., 2009, 12, 399; and D. Ivaneyko, V. Toshchevikov, M. Saphiannikova, G.

Prueba de ello es el reconocimiento que ha hecho el Sistema Nacional de Indexación de Publicaciones Científicas y Tecnológicas Colombianas, Publindex, que subió de escalafón a varias revistas indexadas de la UPTC, quedando 9 revistas en A2, 3 revistas en categoría B, y 3 en C, entrando a este grupo la revista “Ingeniería, Investigación y Desarrollo”, de la Facultad Seccional Sogamoso, para un total de 15 revistas indexadas. Una de ellas es la revista Facultad de Ingeniería, la cual ha venido trabajando constantemente en la mejora de sus procesos con el fin de obtener reconocimiento mundial por parte de la comunidad científica. Este esfuerzo se ve reflejado en ser una de las primeras revistas de la Universidad, clasificada en categoría A2 por Publindex, Colciencias; adicionalmente los índices y bases de datos en las que se encuentra indizada e indexada certifican su calidad editorial, como recientemente lo hizo Redalyc, que en cabeza de su director General, Doctor Eduardo Aguado López, aseguró que la Revista cumple satisfactoriamente los criterios de calidad editorial considerados en la metodología redalyc.org, y que su indización ha sido ratificada por unanimidad por los integrantes del Comité Científico Asesor Redalyc.  Todo ello es muestra fehaciente de que el trabajo en conjunto de los diferentes actores de la gestión editorial, conlleva a generar publicaciones reconocidas que coadyuvan a certificar el esfuerzo que se hace desde la Administración en los procesos académico-investigativos, como pilar fundamental de nuestra Institución.

Authors concluded that unconfined compressive strength and split tensile strength of rubberized cemented clayey soil decreases with the increase of the percentage of crumb rubber whereas the axial, and diametral strain are found to be increased with the addition of crumb rubber up to 5% after that it starts to decrease. The CBR values (California Bearing Ratio, swelling pressure, and toughness index of uncemented/cemented clayey soil was significantly affected by incorporation of crumb rubber. The fifth paper investigated the effect of fly ash, silica fume and metakaolin on the air permeability of Portland cement concrete at equal water/cement ratios and strengths. At equal water/cement ratios, while fly ash binary cement concretes have higher coefficients of air permeability than Portland cement concrete due to delayed pozzolanic reactivity, silica fume and metakaolin binary cement concretes have comparable coefficients with Portland cement concrete. The ternary cement concretes have coefficients comparable with that of Portland cement concrete. The author concluded that high volume fly ash would be required to increase the resistance of concrete to air permeability at equal strength.

    Full Text Available The Center of Forestry Research- CEPEF- is linked to the Fundação de Apoio à Tecnologia e Ciência (FATEC, of the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, and was created in 1986 with the mission of promoting the scientific investigation, contributing to the solution of the unique problems of the forestry enterprise. For the publication of the technical-scientific knowledge generated in the Institution, and by other researchers in forestry, the Revista Ciência Florestal was created, in 1991, as a result of the combined effort between the University and the private forest sector. The difficulties found in the early number were slowly overcome, with the effective participation of all segments, always looking of the improvement of the scientific and editorial quality, compartible with the qualitative growth goals of the journal. In this context, the incorporation of nationally renown researchers to the editorial board turned the scientific consulting more selective. The first important recognition of this journal happened with its indexing by the CAB International System, from England, in 1997. The repercussion of the inclusion on the indexing system was felt by the significant increase in the number of manuscripts received. To meet this new challenge, and the demand by the Braxilian scientific community, the Editorial Board decided to implement a second number of the journal, making it biannual this year. Thus, the edition of the ninth volume will comprise this first number, in the month of June, and a second one, planned forDecember 1999. Another change, to catch your eyes, is the cover of the Journal, bringing a new style. The design was developed by the Visual Programming Laboratory, of the Center for the Arts and Literature od the UFSM, substantially changing its layout, and giving it a more modern and actual appeal. The innovation will be complemented by a different picture in each volume. CEPEF hopes to modernize its Journal of scientific

The same corporation which is also responsible for publishing Journal Citation Reports which lists an impact factor (IF for each of the journals that it tracks. This is a really big step forward for our new journal and we hope to obtain a deserved IF of our own in not very distant future.We have also recently teamed up with CABI, so at the moment full text content indexing of VRF have been started on CABI data bank, meaning more availability for a larger audience.In the current issue, we have included a review article titled “Nutrigenomics & Its Applications in Animal Science”. This review article may fall a little bit short from the strict standards, which are in place for a review article within our journal. However, due to rather new and burgeoning content of the paper we thought our readers might find it quite interesting, so we went ahead with its publication.Finally, we are thinking of designing a new more user-friendly, more reliable website for VRF which can include easy-to-use options for submission, review and tracking manuscripts for everyone.

Pam’s knowledge, ability and creativity, not to mention her endless patience with the rest of the editorial team, have resulted in the professional presence of EBLIP. Her work is not transparent to the readers, but paramount to the editorial team and the journal.

    This editorial presents an overview of the articles contained in this issue of Gender and Development, addressing the key themes of globalization and diversity. The collection of articles recalls why the project of promoting gender-equitable development continues to be critical in the 21st century, identifies some key challenges confronting those working on gender development, and takes a brief look at some examples of innovative work. This collection begins with a group of articles examining economic, political, and social changes associated with globalization, and analyzing their positive and negative impacts on different men and women. The ways in which specific aspects of globalization affect gender relations and shape the choices and chances of men and women are traced. In particular, writers highlight the failure of governments and development agencies to challenge fully the false assumptions about the nature of the role of men and women in society upon which global activity is based. Drawing on insights from academic research and feedback from practitioners, the second group of articles presents the basic concepts and terminology used in gender and development work. Lastly, the third group of articles offers innovative case studies of current gender-sensitive development work. Emphasis is placed on topical issues, including acknowledgment of sexuality as a development issue, critique on the assumption of entrepreneurship as gender neutral, and the assertion of the need for mainstream institutions, including government and development funders to work with women's organizations.

    ; eventually, they submitted their own papers to PSST, and sometimes even became members of the Editorial Board. I contacted possible members of the Editorial Board, and most accepted. The Board consists of the leaders in the field and has guided the evolution of the journal over the years. Possibly the most important decision I made was to ask Daan Schram from Eindhoven University of Technology to serve as the Regional Editor for Europe. His experience and expertise were invaluable to the development and success of PSST. He was a key addition to the Editorial Board because he was very well established in the European plasma community and his plasma background complemented mine. Daan retired as Regional Editor in 2006, but still continues as a member of the Editorial Board. The first issue of PSST appeared a year later, in March 1992. It was the only time that a printed issue of the journal did not appear in February, May, August, or November. It was 74 pages long. (To see the first table of contents, click here). The articles were arranged by the appropriate neutral pressures, a procedure that continued until the onset of electronic publication. (An alternative ordering of the papers according to neutral pressure was subsequently provided at the beginning of each issue.) In the first few issues, the papers covered the full range in neutral pressures, setting a pattern for the future. In 1992, the first year of publication, we had 280 pages. This year there are over 900 regular issue pages. The latest impact factor of 2.346 is the highest ever, and evidence that PSST is now a well established journal. My comment in 1990, that the need for a journal which is concerned with plasma source design and characteristics related to plasma processing 'is likely to continue for at least 10 years or more', was clearly overly pessimistic. The field is continuing to grow. A variety of atmospheric pressure discharges that were hardly considered or unknown in 1990 are now hot topics, and

    Full Text Available Abstract The Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA was honoured to welcome scientists from all over the world who attended the International Workshop on major Genes and QTL in Sheep and Goats. Approximately 100 participants from 16 countries were registered, contributing 52 oral or poster presentations. A first session was dedicated to the tools available for identifying and localising major genes or QTL in these two species. Molecular techniques, marker panels, radiation hybrids, genome physical maps, and BAC libraries were presented along with genetic, comparative and cytogenetic maps. A second and largest session concerned different traits for which major genes or QTL have been found, i.e., ovulation and other reproduction traits, milk and meat characters, and resistance to disease and wool production. For each group, a guest's paper focused on one sub-trait gave the state of the art: the history, identification and localisation of sources of monogenic and oligogenic variability, genetic determinism (dominance, imprinting, ..., effects on the phenotype, physiological mechanisms implied, use in populations, etc. The third session was devoted to the strategies for the use of major genes and QTL in populations, while the last session covered future prospects. A CD (available on request to bodin@toulouse.inra.fr of the full proceedings was available, and participants invited to give a main paper also had the opportunity to submit it for publication in this special issue of GSE.

The journal is a collaborative effort amongst Universidad Andrés Bello (Chile, Universidad Europea de Madrid (Spain, Istanbul Bilgi University (Turkey, and Walden University (United States. These four institutions started this journal to provide scholarly focus on international research in higher education, teaching and learning, education policy and practice, and internationalization.  It was important that the journal be open access, so that everyone could have immediate and unrestricted access to the latest research.  It was also important that the journal be multilingual; we have accepted manuscripts for review in Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, and English. The language capacity of the staff is truly amazing.   As I begin my first year as Chief Editor, I have had the time to reflect on the many accomplishments of HLRC. HLRC has published 88 essays, articles, lections, book reviews, and editorials.

Different socio-cultural issues, tough economic challenges and changing policies around the world affect the educational conditions for elementary students. Different countries and geographic areas steady are facing different challenges with regard to their teaching-learning agendas. On the other hand we are observing a common global interest: All the central and local educational authorities want to create better teaching conditions for elementary teachers and better learning conditions for the elementary students. Another global interest is to have access to research-based knowledge which has high quality and at the same time is relevant.

    This editorial introduces a volume of Oxfam's Gender and Development journal that highlights the role of education and training in promoting gender equality. While the articles do not focus entirely on gender training, all seek ways to transform gender relations by developing accessible female-friendly educational methods. Educational systems worldwide reflect their social context (with male biased, Western-style education a by-product of colonialism) and may transmit culture, reinforce the status quo, or promote change. Structural adjustment programs are also increasing the barriers to education by forcing imposition of school fees, and female education is still considered subversive and threatening in many settings. Development donors, however, view the education of girls as a modernizing influence that can promote development. However, female skills acquisition must be matched by structural changes to improve women's status. Specific articles in this journal, therefore, consider the agenda of donors who stress Western-style education, the stereotyping of gender roles in formal educational systems, participatory educational methods, "education for empowerment" versus "schooling for subordination," and gender training as a component of a project to increase female access to schools, and innovative techniques. The journal also includes a report on the Fifth International Conference on Adult Education that calls for implementation of the conference goals.

    This editorial introduces a journal devoted to the issues surrounding women and their rights. As the development debate moves from women's need to their rights and to an understanding of the cultural roots of legal systems and the effects of the mass media in presenting alternative life styles as possibilities, the immense implications of using rights-based language in development emerge. This debate moves women from being the recipients of welfare to a state of empowerment. Women must be afforded individual rights which are linked to community rights. In addition, rights must be granted to women in their public and private domains. The dangers of using a rights-based language to assert women's claims to economic, political, and social equality in economic, political, and social life arise from the reality that the social position of men will usually place men at an advantage with the law. Legal processes which stress dichotomies may fail to improve real social situations. Also, the language of human rights may pit one set of rights (a woman's right to choose abortion) against another (the fetuses' right to live) to women's disadvantage. Areas governed by both customary and civil law pose other difficulties, especially since they require women to understand the law in order to use it. Development efforts which stress rights hope to meet immediate needs and to achieve a strategic end. Nongovernmental organizations can play an important role in asserting and enforcing the freedom of individuals and groups within groups. They can also build capacity at all levels of society and explore linkages between women's economic participation, decision-making within the home, and wider political participation.

Este dado é preliminar, pois sua publicação será efetuada em julho de 2016. O periódico também passa a exigir dos autores o registro no Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID. Isto se deve à necessidade de termos um currículo com informações certificadas disponível na base de dados da HOLOS para facilitar o trabalho de editoria, extração de dados dos autores para repositórios, agências de fomento, entre outras aplicações.

Permiten, de igual modo, hacer tangible y resguardar en la memoria de lo impreso el ethos de la Universidad: la consolidación de comunidades académicas y la producción de conocimiento. Sin embargo, para la concreción de este propósito, múltiples tareas han de llevar a cabo quienes trajinan detrás de este tipo de publicaciones: la construcción de una política editorial, la consecución y la recepción de artículos, el sostenimiento de una comunidad de pares o árbitros para la evaluación, la coordinación de procesos como la revisión de estilo, la diagramación y la impresión, el logro de su periodicidad... Aunado a esto, se encuentra la exigencia de cumplimiento con los cánones de los sistemas de clasificación, citación e indexación que hoy en día “legitiman” a las revistas en su labor de difusión del conocimiento académico. Frente a estas tareas, los problemas no se hacen esperar. Uno de ellos se relaciona precisamente con el tipo de exigencias para clasificar o mantener la publicación en el índex, léase los criterios de calidad otorgados en los sistemas creados para tal fin.

    -Space, we hope to generate a dynamic and interesting vision of the built environment that stands in contrast to journals whose subject matter is contained within a narrow vision of architecture and planning as constraining determinants of social space. While it is our intention to make space available on a continuing basis to a diversity of submissions, as is now the norm we intend to publish occasional ‘themed’ issues that cover particular subjects in significant depth, for example in kampung development, space in traditional societies, the impact of globalisation on local cultures and development control. Additionally, since this journal is being produced by the Masters Program in Architecture at Udayana University in Bali, it is also our intention to use it as a forum for the diversity of problems that now inundate Balinese society, specifically those that affect development and culture as a whole. In the forefront of this debate lies the nemesis of tourism. Its impacts are ubiquitous and variously interpreted on the one hand as destructive of environment and culture yet on the other as a making a massive contribution to the local economy. While Bali’s problems are not original, the island paradise offers a singular laboratory where the conflicts brought by tourism can be studied in significant depth. It is also our intention to generalise our content, not only in subject matter but also in the form in which it is presented. In future issues we will also welcome three other types of submission. First, book reviews (up to 1000 words. Second, viewpoints which provide a new insight or critique of a theory, method, subject matter etc that the author feels is being ignored or is otherwise misinterpreted (1000-2000 words.

As discussed earlier, the creation of a multidisciplinary magazine of the University Center of Araraquara intended, in that context, encourage the dissemination of research results and extension produced by its faculty and students. The very transformations and academic evolution of the institution demanded and were reflected in the changes implemented in magazine publishing in form, content, criteria adopted for publication and visibility, enabling an improvement in the scientific quality of the journal. In this process, the journal maintained its multidisciplinary nature, which required the development of a peer database of different areas of expertise to meet the specificities of the articles submitted. The organization of this select group depends not only on knowledge to academic evaluation of manuscripts, such as commitment, always voluntary, the referees with the rules and dates indicated by the editors. This difficulty is being overcome little by little, being necessary to point out what is the contribution of these researchers that has been promoting the development of the quality of this journal. An analysis of articles published in four numbers after the magazine's restructuring process, using as criteria the six areas of categories, namely, communication, rural communities, law, education, business, environment and health, shows a predominance of the theme environment , investigated in several respects, followed by education and health. The diversity of research in the environmental area has shown and reaffirming that the studies on this topic can and are being approached from an interdisciplinary point of view, and are already reflected in environmental preservation actions. This same multi-interdisciplinary approach will be the basis for discussions during the UN

Pero además de esto, este número tiene un significado muy especial: nuestra revista cumple 10 años de existir. Hace aproximadamente 12 años surgió en el seno del Centro Centroamericano de Población la inquietud de ofrecer un espacio para dar a conocer los estudios poblacionales de nuestra región de una manera diferente. Queríamos crear una iniciativa más dinámica, que implicara una mayor rapidez en la gestión editorial, menores costos y un contacto más directo con los autores. Optamos entonces por una opción que apenas iniciaba sus primeros pasos en la Universidad de Costa Rica: la publicación electrónica. De hecho, la nuestra fue una de las primeras revistas electrónicas oficiales de esta noble institución académica. Se tuvo que librar una batalla para lograr romper con los esquemas tradicionales, en los cuales solamente la publicación impresa tenía validez, mientras que las electrónicas se tomaban como de baja calidad. Ha sido un camino largo de evolución, formación, aprendizaje y hoy por hoy se ha demostrado la solidez y seriedad de nuestra revista.PSM ha publicado hasta el día de hoy (116 al 10-1 documentos entre artículos científicos, ensayos, informes técnicos, revisiones bibliográficas y documentos históricos.

    Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China. The Centre has a clear objective: to ‘translate research outcomes into practices that will lead to the proper management of degraded and mining lands through working closely with communities, government, industry and NGOs.’ The Centre is working on the subject of artisanal and small-scale mining as a key focus area. Artisanal gold mining on the Indonesian islands of Lombok and Sumbawa is today releasing mercury and cyanide into the environment. The discharge of contaminants and associated land degradation is affecting human health and food safety. To support the Centre’s work, IRC-MEDMIND has created the Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management, and it is my pleasure to write this first editorial for the journal. The first issue is a collection of eight papers presented during the 1st International Conference on Environmental, Socio-economic, and Health Impacts of Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining which was held in Malang during February 2012. These eight papers have been authored by leading scientists from South-East Asia and Australasia, and describe new initiatives in the management of degraded and mining lands. On behalf of the Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management I thank you for reading this first journal issue of Volume 1. The editorial board invites you to support this journal and signals its intention to aspire to high standards of scientific and written excellence. As a result of the generous support of the University of Brawijaya, the Journal will have no page charges. The Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management therefore represents a new mechanism to present relevant, high quality and peer reviewed science and commentary to the international community.

Nesse período, foram 303 artigos publicados com uma evolução contínua do número de edições por ano, chegando este ano ao número de seis edições anuais. No final do ano passado, incluímos uma ferramenta para acompanhamento dos locais de acesso dos IPs, de sorte que, para nossa surpresa, se identificou um elevado número de acessos advindos do exterior, da ordem de 8% nos primeiros três meses da implantação do sistema. Associado a esses números, verificou-se ainda que, entre 2004 e 2010, os artigos publicados foram acessados 427 mil vezes, o que demonstra a consolidação do periódico como fonte de pesquisa. Assim, é com satisfação que apresentamos à comunidade acadêmica este primeiro volume da Revista HOLOS de 2011, composto de 15 artigos especialmente selecionados. O artigo que abre esta edição traz uma discussão sobre as dimensões estratégicas organizacionais dos Institutos Federais, com ênfase no desenvolvimento institucional. Os quatros artigos seguintes situam-se no campo das diversas engenharias, os quais, cada um por sua vez, abordam tratamento de efluentes utilizando bioreator, processamento de mamão com antioxidantes, cinética de feijão e dimensionamento de biodigestor. Na área ambiental, são apresentados três artigos que tratam, respectivamente, de recursos hídricos no Estado do Rio Grande do Norte, de debilidades de RCA na área de petróleo e da pegada de carbono. Na área de informática, tem-se um artigo sobre templete mathing como técnica computacional aplicada ao monitoramento de áreas supervisionadas.

    Full Text Available Issue 9 opened in November 2000 with a 'special section' consisting of 7 articles on Near Eastern Petrology edited by Louise Joyner from the British Museum (described in more detail in her editorial. Rather than the restricted number of black and white images commonly found in more traditional publications, all 7 articles include full colour petrographic images of pottery from around the Eastern Mediterranean, demonstrating the opportunity offered in this medium for archaeologists to portray their data in more detail and much more effectively than can usually be done in print. One article also made use of QuickTime rotating images, illustrating the optical effects of rotation of thin sections on the microscope stage, vitually allowing us to step into the shoes of the specialist. The issue continued into December with the publication of excavations of the Roman site at Brough-on-Humber. This article was commissioned by York Archaeological Trust and prepared by Internet Archaeology to explore the electronic publication of archaeological excavation reports. The complete report is published alongside the context dataset, the pottery dataset and the 'small finds' catalogue. Comments on the balance that has been struck between the needs of the general reader and the specialist in this case are especially welcome, but hopefully will not eclipse the importance of the site in light of its conclusions about the status of the Roman town and the discovery of a hitherto unrecognised pottery industry in the region. As all of the articles in this issue witness, modern excavation and fieldwork survey inevitably creates large quantities of computer-generated information, either during fieldwork or in the assessment, analysis or dissemination stages of any project. Depending on the nature of the research, but mirroring traditional practice, archaeological data can go straight into a digital archive (for those who want access to the raw data, like specialists or

Thus, one of our goal is to make the journal also more attractive for chemists and biologist interested in soft matter concepts. The future of EPJE Soft Matter In 2005, EPJE Soft Matter will see several organisational changes. First of all, the number of Editors-in-Chief will be reduced from four to two. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Athene Donald, Jean-François Joanny and Martin Möller for their enthusiastic efforts and personal engagements in setting up and raising EPJE Soft Matter to the place it takes up now. We believe that only because of their intense and excellent work EPJE Soft Matter has become a leading multidisciplinary journal. In the future, EPJE Soft Matter will continue to stimulate discussions and to publish also controversial ideas and views as long as they are based on the well-established scientific rules. EPJE Soft Matter will evolve towards a journal which is willing and capable to adapt to the needs of the involved communities. The Editors-in-Chief, together with their editorial board members, will always have an open ear for the problems colleagues may encounter in publishing their work. We will assure that requests and suggestions are treated in the most appropriate way and to the full satisfaction of authors and readers. We wish you a happy and productive New Year 2005!

Este segundo volume disponibiliza vinte e quatro artigos, sendo dez na área de engenharias, oito na área de educação, três na área de administração, um na área de saúde pública, um na área de zootecnia e um na área de cultura.

En este marco, se ofrecen producciones provenientes de los estudios didácticos y curriculares así como la interrelación de la enseñanza con otras disciplinas. En este esfuerzo editorial, el énfasis que se ha procurado impulsar es la inscripción del campo de la enseñanza y su estudio en la tradición humanística y científica. Por ello se ha buscado que la revista sea una publicación arbitrada en el marco de los procesos de validación que la comunidad académica ha establecido como legítimos.

    Full Text Available Las revistas colombianas categorizadas en el Índice Bibliográfico Nacional — IBN Publindex están ad portas de experimentar un nuevo proceso de medición que implicará una nueva categorización, la cual dependerá del número de citaciones que tengan los autores de los artículos publicados. Un reto diferente que implica nuevas estrategias de difusión, procesos de selección y revisión, y posiblemente de financiación. Hay retos que no serán fáciles de enfrentar. Uno de ellos, es conservar nuestra identidad como revista latinoamericana con el idioma castellano como principal herramienta de comunicación, en un escenario donde el inglés es el idioma franco de mayor impacto y comunicación de la comunidad científica internacional, y donde no pocos proyectos editoriales y autores son exigidos para comunicarse en dicho idioma en función del impacto de la citación de sus resultados en escala global. El otro reto es mantener nuestra identidad como revista de Historia Regional y Local, en otro escenario donde se propende por la fusión de las revistas disciplinares en las áreas de las ciencias sociales o humanidades, cuando éstas no parecen ser la prioridad en materia de políticas públicas y financiación de la investigación. Y, otro aspecto, tiene relación con el sostenimiento del mismo proyecto editorial en un contexto de presión orientado a la fusión de revistas en el ámbito nacional y la desfinanciación de las universidades públicas en el país. ¿Podemos sobrevivir a los embates de las políticas de indexación y homologación manteniendo nuestros criterios de calidad y excelencia académica, pero sosteniendo nuestra proyección en función del impacto de nuestras comunidades académicas y de historiadores? Es difícil saberlo en este momento, si bien nos tranquiza identificar el deber y compromiso cumplido con el gremio y la comunidad de investigadores de la disciplina en el ámbito nacional e internacional.

    Estos son los desafíos que nos planteamos como equipo editorial de la revista PSICOPERSPECTIVAS: INDIVIDUO Y SOCIEDAD y que nos motivaron a proponer e implementar modificaciones significativas en el formato, acceso y gestión de la Revista. Con este Volumen VII invitamos a los lectores a la primera edición completamente digitalizada de la Revista, y a conocer nuestro nuevo sitio web.

    Con la digitalización, queremos aportar a la generación de conocimientos actualizados y contemporáneos en el ámbito de la Psicología y de las Ciencias Sociales, que den respuesta y aprovechen las posibilidades que los avances tecnológicos hoy nos ofrecen, y sean conocidos y compartidos no solo a nivel local sino también nacional e internacional. Para ello, consideramos indispensable mantener una política de acceso abierto al público lector interesado. Deseamos agradecer a Felipe Lavín Zumaeta, alumno de nuestra Escuela, quien ha actuado como gestor y técnico de muchas de las innovaciones tecnológicas que hoy presentamos.

    En esta nueva etapa, hemos introducido además modificaciones que apuntan hacia la profesionalización de la Revista y que en su conjunto significan nuevos desafíos para nuestra Escuela de Psicología.

In their article, they approach the issue of the foot and mouth disease social impacts, and mention that Santa Catarina is the only Brazilian State that does not immunize the bovine herd against this illness. The authors argue the policies that state adopts concerning this illness, especially the non-vaccination, and relate this fact with ethical questions of human and animal welfare. The study concludes that the real experience of an outbreak results in dramatic, social consequences for the affected families, showing a long-term rupture in these families’ rural lifestyles.

    generar futuro vivible, un escenario cada vez más posible de Paz exige reconfigurar el proyecto educativo de la nación considerando volver a la persona, a la producción de sentido estético de sí, al reconocimiento, la aceptación propia y ajena, la construcción simbólica de la reparación y el acercamiento al Otro. Tener a la vista la Paz es, de suyo, el entorno que nos define como promesa de un futuro posible y escenario de creación factible. El Arte nos recuerda nuestra compleja plasticidad, lo que hace decir a Richard Rorty (1996, uno de los más renombrados filósofos de la actualidad, que no hay humanos paradigmáticos; empero, una educación centrada en la persona y nucleada en torno a procesos estéticos y pacificadores, abrirá compuertas para su constitución. El arte es en sí mismo acontecimiento, y, como la Paz, añade vida a la vida, o si no observemos los efectos estéticos del perdón y la reconciliación en los que volvemos al núcleo vital de la humanidad: el anhelo y la certeza de cambio. En el arte, como la educación y en el perdón: hay trasformación, porque son, ante todo, conmemoración de la vida, acontecimientos confirmativos. Lo decimos en palabras de Mario Perniola (2001 “Para la existencia de lo estético se hace esencial, al menos, la posibilidad del fin de un conflicto, de una paz venidera, de un momento pacificador en el que dolor y lucha se vean, sino definitivamente cesados, sí, al menos, momentáneamente suspendidos”.  (p. 194.    Referencias Deleuze, G.

Hence, our conceptualizations about a classroom have to include different kinds of learning and teaching settings such as traditional face-to-face work; virtual-learning spaces to allow the learners to build a study path while tutors monitor and assist students when necessary; faceto- face study periods combined with alternating tutoring sessions; and mentoring sessions to support autonomous, semi-autonomous or self-instruction learning. This, in turn, opens doors to questions concerning a variety of issues that are born in the midst of the complex realities we face in such teaching and learning scenarios.

Com este número, a revista atinge sua meta de publicação de três volumes anuais, que vem sendo alcançada há cinco anos, perfazendo um total de 15 edições no período. Fruto das contribuições contínuas dos grupos de pesquisa do IFRN, os quais apresentam resultados de pesquisas e experiências desenvolvidas nas diversas áreas do conhecimento, a Holos se consolida ainda mais como um canal de difusão científica e tecnológica, na medida em que toma uma dimensão nacional, mostrada pela expressiva presença de artigos de pesquisadores de outras instituições. No primeiro artigo, que resulta de uma monografia de graduação em Controle Ambiental pelo IFRN, tem-se a abordagem de um tema da mais alta relevância, em particular para o município de Natal-RN: a contaminação do aquífero. Os autores avaliam as concentrações de nitrato nas fontes de águas minerais e apontam que, em alguns casos, os índices encontrados já superam o valor máximo recomendável para a potabilidade. O artigo seguinte traz uma introdução à automação residencial a partir da apresentação de dois sistemas de baixo custo, a saber: controle liga/desliga de uma bomba d’água para reservatórios e controle liga/desliga de lâmpadas, que poderiam ser utilizados por portadores de necessidades especiais. Na seqüência, o terceiro trabalho analisa a importância do projeto político-pedagógico (PPP do CEFET-RN e avalia a sua contribuição para um processo de inclusão educacional, destacando a preocupação institucional com o tema.

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL   Com temas diversos, unidos por uma perspectiva interdisciplinar comum, apresentamos mais um número da nossa revista eletrônica, relativa ao segundo semestre de 2008. Inicialmente temos um instigante artigo de Fabio di Clemente, Doutor em Filosofia pela Universidade de Urbino (Itália, na qual foi docente de História da Tradição dos Povos e diretor didático do Mestrado em História do Pensamento Filosófico, Político e Pedagógico. O texto procura investigar, sobretudo através da obra de Merleau-Ponty, o significado de uma possível recuperação das noções de fundamento e de subjetividade. Frente às autocríticas, às crises e ao desejo de superação que tais noções produziram em si mesmas através da história, o autor procura aqui requalificá-las tanto em relação à tradição filosófica quanto em relação à reflexão sobre a ciência como tal, defendendo uma superação de um quadro metodológico dualista e reducionista. Nessa perspectiva, a noção de subjetividade, situada dentro da corporeidade e dentro do “plano de ser”, pode ser redescoberta na sua “vocação ontológica”, para além de toda equivocidade. O texto busca, em síntese, apresentar-se como uma releitura das relações entre a filosofia e a ciência a partir do conceito de corpo. A seguir, Antônio Macena Figueiredo, Doutorando do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências da Saúde (UnB/DF, Volnei Garrafa, Doutor em Ciências pela UNESP, orientador do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ciências da Saúde, Coordenador da Cátedra UNESCO de Bioética da UnB, Coordenador do Programa de Pós-Gradação em Bioética da UnB, e Jorge Alberto Cordón Portillo, Doutor em Ciências da Saúde pela UnB, discutem o ensino da bioética na área das Ciências da Saúde no Brasil.

    Full Text Available This issue of Libellarium features papers based on the presentations from the 2nd Publishing trends and contexts conference which took place in Pula, Croatia, on 8-9 December 2014. All papers were subject to evaluation and classification by two independent reviewers, according to the journal’s editorial policy. The conference gathered a group of experts from prominent European universities from England, France, Germany, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, Slovenia and Croatia–the details are available on the conference web site: http://epubconf.unizd.hr/hr/index.php. The papers published in this volume concentrate on four main problems: new possibilities for publishers, booksellers and authors caused by the introduction of digital technologies in the publishing processes, models used in the digital environment, teaching publishing at the university level, and finally, the status of publishing studies as an emerging scholarly discipline. The first part features five papers. Tom D. Wilson in E-books: the publishers’ dilemma reports on a study of publishers’ attitudes towards e-books in three countries: Sweden, Lithuania and Croatia, showing a great contrast between the rise of the e-book in English speaking countries and those of small languages. Elena Maceviciute, Birgitta Wallin and Kersti Nilsson (Book selling and e-books in Sweden address the issue of the understanding of the book-selling situation in Sweden, by answering three crucial questions: how Swedish booksellers see the impact of e-books on their business, how and why they adopt and develop e-book sales, and what they perceive as barriers to e-book selling. Interestingly, the results have shown that the Swedish booksellers do not feel their business is threatened by e-books. In E-book aggregators: new services in electronic publishing Tomislav Jakopec investigates e-book aggregators as new services in electronic publishing, showing that e-book aggregation exists

    Full Text Available Second year of our bulletin has been accomplished, though it is slightly delayed. I want to thank all my colleagues who have worked for publishing and distribution of the bulletin who have really worked hard rather than you could easily imagine. Prof.Dr. Oğuz Polat, who had worked as an assistant editor for 2 years, has wished to resign. I am grateful for his contribution. All colleagues once had the consensus of opinion that the Society of Forensic Medicine Specialists should publish a scientific journal. Nevertheless, the survival of a journal depends on the quality and quantity of articles, and reproductive work of both the advisory board members and the authors rather than technical work of publishing. I hope the number of colleagues who exert big effort will increase. Few number of articles, delayed answers of both the advisory board members and the authors all are the reasons for delayed publishing process. Your support will have the contributory effect on the improvement of professional identity and advancement of our junior colleagues, of which can never be denied. The advancement of this field will be put off for a long time if we do not maintain appropriate support. Our bulletin applies the rules of peer-viewed journals and this will lead to success.

Thus, ETD will be in accordance with the evaluation requirements of Qualis/CAPES: among the criteria for A1 qualification journals must be published quarterly. Seeking to pass from the stratum A2 to A1 the change in periodicity is essential, since in the last qualification Digital Thematic Education had not attended only this criterion of periodicity.Referring to the assessment of databases and directories: Scopus (Elsevier, Web of Science (Thomson Reuters/ISI, RedALyC and SciELO, the evaluation is in progress. The purpose is to follow the best editorial practices recommended by such databases and directories, so to achieve the goal of being part of one of them.Opening the Articles section the paper "Considerations on the use of the Academic Motivation Scale (AMS with young students", in which Bettina Steren dos Santos, Jussara Bernardi and Helio Radke Bittencourt, all from Rio Grande do Sul Pontifical Catholic University, addresses the reasons why young people attend school, describing results collected through Academic Motivation Scale (AMS tool, adapted version of Vallerand et al., consisting of a quantitative study in which statistical techniques commonly applied in Psychometric field are used.The second article, "Evaluation and quality of social education", written by Flávia Obino Corrêa Werle (Unisinos, Lisandra Schneider Scheffer and Marilan de Carvalho Moreira (Public Network of Basic Education - Esteio

Tanto Manovich quanto Ziegfried estudam as novas mí­dias no fluxo das conquistas que marcaram a civilização ocidental. Por isso, os dois estudiosos recorrem à arqueologia. O segundo semestre de 2001 foi particularmente rico de eventos na área dos estudos de comunicação e da semiótica. Dentre as reuniões cientí­ficas realizadas, dois foram noticiados nessa edição. O IV Encontro Internacional sobre o Pragmatismo e o V Congresso Brasileiro de Semiótica. A II Mostra Interpoesia também mereceu espaço nessa sessão.

    Full Text Available The present issue of Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching marks exactly three years of existence of the journal. On the one hand, this has not been a very easy time, mainly because of the fact that, as is the case with any startup publication, it has been extremely difficult to obtain papers that would satisfy the stringent criteria of high-quality academic research, with the effect that the rejection rate has been extremely high, and finding the right reviewers has also often constituted a major challenge. On the other hand, the three years have also witnessed the rise of SSLLT in the field, as we have been privileged to publish papers by prominent scholars in the area of second language acquisition, well-known researchers have consented to act in the capacity of editors of special issues of the journal, and eminent figures have also agreed to review many of the submissions we have received. Equally importantly, there has been increasing interest in the papers we publish, which is evidenced in the growing numbers of downloads and citations, a clear advantage of having both a printed and an online version, the latter of which is accessible to everyone free of charge. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been involved in the production of the journal over these three years and have spent countless hours to make sure that the final product is each time up to standard. In particular, my sincere thanks go to assistants to the editor Anna Mystkowska-Wiertelak, Jakub Bielak, Mariusz Kruk and Krzysztof Kwiatkowski, our typesetter Piotr Bajak, as well as the authors and anonymous reviewers. Had it not been for their attention to detail, dedication, hard work and support, SSLLT would surely not have gained the position in the field it enjoys today.

O outro artigo aponta para a importância dos movimentos de luta da população, que organizada, consegue alterar o sentido da política de saúde mental em nosso país, buscando estabelecer um modelo de atenção que se coloque numa perspectiva de resistência aos interesses capitalistas.Um segundo grupo de artigos discute a política de assistência social indicando ao leitor elementos para uma crítica de aspectos dessa política que podem estar incorporando elementos da política neoliberal imposta desde década de 1980, principalmente. Um primeiro artigo problematiza a chamada matricialidade sociofamiliar, refletindo sobre o tensionamento entre dois modelos de incorporação da família na política de assistência social: um que a coloca no patamar de responsável pela proteção de seus membros, e outro que a considera objeto da proteção social. O artigo busca estabelecer as consequências dos modelos para o trabalho social.Outro artigo discute a política de assistência social abordando a delicada relação entre público e privado nessa área da política social. A partir de dados oficiais as autoras elaboram uma reflexão crítica sobre o financiamento público de serviços ofertados pela rede privada, e as contradições resultantes desse modelo de funcionamento da política de assistência social no Brasil.A partir daí, o leitor encontrará um conjunto de temáticas bem diversa, transitando por discussões sobre a política de educação no contexto do neoliberalismo, passar por uma reflexão sobre a relação entre Estado e sociedade civil a partir de uma experiência com conselhos de direitos da área da infância e adolescência, e enveredar por uma reflexão acerca da emancipação humana e de sua relação com o mundo do trabalho.Completam este volume, duas importantes reflexões sobre a intervenção profissional na área das políticas sociais.

    Full Text Available This issue of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC features research focused on some of the challenges colleges and universities are facing in this new century, as the world becomes more and more technology focused and internationalized. New learning and teaching paradigms in higher education institutions across the globe highlight the need to constantly innovate educational programs in order to remain relevant and accessible across disciplines and frontiers alike. An entity that has been ahead of its times for decades has been the International Baccalaureate (IB. As Dr. Ian Hill and Dr. Susan Saxton explain in their article, “The International Baccalaureate (IB Programme: An international gateway to higher education and beyond”, the Diploma Programme of the IB allows students to obtain internationally recognized university entrance qualifications. At the same time, students develop critical thinking skills, international mindedness, and intercultural understanding, among other valuable skills in globalized economies and societies. Furthermore, research has shown the international recognition and the skills acquired through the IB Diploma allow students to better succeed in both higher education and their professional careers. As higher education becomes more and more internationalized, higher education institutions must also deal with the challenges of training international faculty. As Dr. Kevin R. Meyer and Dr. Yuping Mao point out in their article, “Comparing student perceptions of the classroom climate created by U.S. American and international teaching assistants”, past research has shown students tend to rate international teaching assistants (ITAs lower that their local counterparts. Although this could have important repercussions for learning outcomes, little research has been conducted in this area. Meyer and Mao’s research suggest institutions should be proactive in encouraging students to value cultural

The author tries to call the attention to the polissemic character of the notion of biopolitics. In the fourth article, Cláudia Hausman Silveira, doctoral student at the Interdisciplinary Program of Post-Graduation in Human sciences (DICH at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC, presents the issue of the family health, comparing the models that have inspired the construction of the Program of Family Health in Brazil, observing their differences and similarities. Moreover, she makes a comparative analysis among the Cuban, English, Canadian and Brazilian models, concluding that the Program multiprofessional proposal of work in interdisciplinary teams, in accordance with the Only System of Health (SUS, can assist in the fulfillment of the health law in the country. In the fifth article, the environmental issue is treated under the pedagogical point of view. Clayton Ângelo Silva Costa, Master in Environmental Sciences (UEMG presents results of a research carried through with private school teachers in the city of Contagem, Minas Gerais, showing the obstacles involving the application of the environmental education interdisciplinary project, focusing aspects of the atmospheric pollution.

    . These negative results drive our next step at the bench but are rarely published. We are working to bring to light these types of observations to be published under peer review for the greater good. Our goal is to make accessible a manuscript about what didn’t work so you can build on the mistakes of others rather than simply repeat them. Instead of three steps forward and two steps back, Science could just move forward. We now have an unbiased forum to present a negative finding. In Cancer research or chemotherapeutic development, for example, the trend is to publish data showing efficacy. We’d offer that inefficacy could also be of great importance to the scientific community. What agents failed, in what types of cancer and why; the latter question albeit difficult to answer. One could imagine the same trends emerging from this type of work in terms of gene expression profiling, proteomics and biomarkers. Agent X will not be effective in cancer Y because of overexpression of biomarker Z. A manuscript focused on the inefficacy of a particular chemotherapeutic agent could assist in moving the cancer biology field forward by offering a forum to share with the greater cancer research community the same negative findings that may have contributed to the development of a highly effective agent. Breaking this cycle of publishing only positive results will undoubtedly improve our ability to make educated decisions at the bench in biology. Furthermore, there are many research based scientific disciplines that would benefit from bringing this important work to the mainstream of scientific publication and peer review. This trend (resistance to publish negative results or unsuccessful experiments has been recently defined as “publication bias” and has major ramifications for the health of citizens. Publication bias is a growing problem and some authors are now extensively writing about it. 1 Not only Health but also Ecology has shown this publication bias and have been

    Full Text Available In 2004, documentary theorist Michael Renov described ‘the recent turn to filmic autobiography’ as ‘the defining trend of “post-verite” documentary practice...’ In 2008 Renov went further still, suggesting that ‘the very idea of autobiography challenges/reinvents the VERY IDEA of documentary.’ Archive based autobiographical filmmaking, meanwhile, is even more problematic for documentary theory. Indeed, a number of recent documentaries, because of their status somewhere in the spectrum between biography and autobiography, have prompted the construction of an entirely new conceptual category, deploying archival film, often in the form of home movies, to document the lives of their human subjects in Renov’s formulation ‘shared textual authority’.  In this article I examine one of ‘my’ own archive based documentaries, ‘Marilyn on Marilyn’ (BBC2 2001, as a way of asking questions not just about biographical and autobiographical documentary but also - and perhaps more urgently - about attributions of authorship in archive-based documentary.

    Full Text Available Galáxia chega ao seu segundo número. Passada a cerimônia de batismo, é hora de enfrentar a não menos difí­cil tarefa de garantir a consolidação de seu perfil editorial na área de sua competência cientí­fica. Espera-se que os leitores de Galáxia - ou, quem sabe?, seus futuros colaboradores - estejam cada vez mais esclarecidos sobre a opção pela diversidade, tanto aquela que diz respeito à transdisciplinaridade, quanto aquela que acolhe a variedade temática, base da linha editorial que desenhou esse projeto. Concebida como uma constelação - que se explicita na escolha do nome, no design gráfico, nas articulações das áreas envolvidas - Galáxia não se enquadra no perfil das revistas temáticas que se fecham em torno de uma única questão ou de um mesmo objeto, compilando sobre eles os vários pontos de vista ou seus desdobramentos possí­veis. Isso não quer dizer que não haja nela espaço para esse tipo de encaminhamento. Na verdade, Galáxia procurou desenhar um lugar - as sessões - em função dos gêneros que reúnem um conjunto diferenciado de abordagens, assegurando, assim, a transdisciplinaridade. Para os ensaios temáticos projetou o Fórum; para os textos analí­ticos, a sessão Artigos. Notí­cias, Projetos, Diálogos, Entrevistas e outros gêneros que possam ser incorporados no futuro definem as sessões que tanto podem estar centradas num único tema quanto abertas para explorações diversificadas. Cada uma, a seu modo, oscila entre o caráter ensaí­stico, a análise aplicada ou experimentação crí­tico-criativa. Neste segundo número, a seção Fórum acolheu dois ensaios que enfrentam a difí­cil tarefa de explicitar não só a essência como também o caráter da abordagem semiótica para a compreensão e análise da comunicação polí­tica. Eric Landowski e Gianfranco Marrone desenvolvem, à luz da sociossemiótica, um diálogo estreito sobre a natureza dos próprios regimes de sentido e

    Linguistic inquiry and word count (LIWC), a computerized method for text analysis, is often used to examine suicide writings in order to characterize the quantitative linguistic features of suicidal texts. To analyze texts compiled in Marilyn Monroe's Fragments using LIWC, in order to explore the use of different linguistic categories in her narrative over the years. Selected texts were grouped into four periods of similar word count and processed with LIWC. Spearman's rank correlation was used to assess changes in language use across the documents over time. The Kruskal-Wallis test was applied to compare means between periods and for each of the 80 LIWC output scores. Significant differences (p < .05) were found in 11 categories, the most relevant being a progressive decrease in the use of negative emotion words, a reduction in the use of long words in the third period, and an increase in the proportion of personal pronouns used as Monroe approached the time of her death. The consistently elevated usage of first-person personal singular pronouns and the consistently diminished usage of first-person personal plural pronouns are in line with previous studies linking this pattern with a low level of social integration, which has been related to suicide according to different theories.

  18. EDITORIAL: Non-thermal plasma-assisted fuel conversion for green chemistry Non-thermal plasma-assisted fuel conversion for green chemistry

    Nozaki, Tomohiro; Gutsol, Alexander

    2011-07-01

    This special issue is based on the symposium on Non-thermal Plasma Assisted Fuel Conversion for Green Chemistry, a part of the 240th ACS National Meeting & Exposition held in Boston, MA, USA, 22-26 August 2010. Historically, the Division of Fuel Chemistry of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has featured three plasma-related symposia since 2000, and has launched special issues in Catalysis Today on three occasions: 'Catalyst Preparation using Plasma Technologies', Fall Meeting, Washington DC, USA, 2000. Special issue in Catalysis Today 72 (3-4) with 12 peer-reviewed articles. 'Plasma Technology and Catalysis', Spring Meeting, New Orleans, LA, USA, 2003. Special issue in Catalysis Today 89 (1-2) with more than 30 peer-reviewed articles. 'Utilization of Greenhouse Gases II' (partly focused on plasma-related technologies), Spring Meeting, Anaheim, CA, USA, 2004. Special issue in Catalysis Today 98 (4) with 25 peer-reviewed articles. This time, selected presentations are published in this Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics special issue. An industrial material and energy conversion technology platform is established on thermochemical processes including various catalytic reactions. Existing industry-scale technology is already well established; nevertheless, further improvement in energy efficiency and material saving has been continuously demanded. Drastic reduction of CO2 emission is also drawing keen attention with increasing recognition of energy and environmental issues. Green chemistry is a rapidly growing research field, and frequently highlights renewable bioenergy, bioprocesses, solar photocatalysis of water splitting, and regeneration of CO2 into useful chemicals. We would also like to emphasize 'plasma catalysis' of hydrocarbon resources as an important part of the innovative next-generation green technologies. The peculiarity of non-thermal plasma is that it can generate reactive species almost independently of reaction temperature. Plasma

    With this editorial note we would like to update you on the performance of the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation (JAG) and inform you about changes that have been made to the composition of the editorial team. Our Journal publishes original papers that apply earth observation data for the management of natural resources and the environment. Environmental issues include biodiversity, land degradation, industrial pollution and natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods and landslides. As such the scope is broad and ranges from conceptual and more fundamental work on earth observation and geospatial sciences to the more problem-solving type of work. When I took over the role of Editor-in-Chief in 2012, I together with the Publisher set myself the mission to position JAG in the top-3 of the remote sensing and GIS journals. To do so we strived at attracting high quality and high impact papers to the journal and to reduce the review turnover time to make JAG a more attractive medium for publications. What has been achieved? Have we reached our ambitions? We can say that: The submissions have increased over the years with over 23% for the last 12 months. Naturally not all may lead to more papers, but at least a portion of the additional submissions should lead to a growth in journal content and quality.

    Full Text Available We’ve reached the end of another year of publication at EBLIP, my first at the helm as Editor‐in‐Chief, and four full years of publication since we began. This year was a busy one with several changes to the editorial team, the addition of more Editorial Advisors, and new evidence summary writers joining our team. Most importantly, the journal continues to grow and thrive, with more people than ever participating in its success. This year we added a new section called Using Evidence in Practice, and in this issue there are two articles in that section which provide practical examples of applying evidence in the workplace. Putting evidence into practice is what EBLIP is all about, so it is my hope that this new section makes the application of evidence based practice more concrete for readers. As we began working on issue 4.4, the Editorial Team decided that it would be a good idea to seek out an Editorial Intern to help with some of the tasks we never seem to get to, given that we are all volunteers. We see the internship as an opportunity to give a library and information studies student a chance to get involved with an open access journal and learn about publishing in library and information studies, which will hopefully benefit them as they begin their new career. The Editorial Intern will assist with marketing and promotion of the journal, soliciting potential manuscripts, and proofreading. They will also participate in all editorial meetings and general discussions. We anticipate that they will bring a wealth of enthusiasm and fresh ideas to our conversations so that EBLIP Editors can also continue to learn and grow by having a fresh set of eyes involved with our processes. It will certainly be a win‐win situation and a learning opportunity for all involved. We are pleased to announce that Andrea Baer has accepted the position of Editorial Intern and joined our team in mid‐November. Andrea is currently attending the University of

    Full Text Available This contribution reports on the last two years of FQS Review, a permanent element of FQS. The arrangements we have made with various publishers are discussed and the editorial process, from finding reviewers until a review finally is published, is explained. Overall, the story of FQS Review seems to be one of success, not only in terms of the number of reviews and review essays published, but also in terms of the reviews being increasingly recognized as valuable contributions of their own, discussing relevant topics from various research fields. Despite these positive effects, our aim to foster greater exchanges between various scientific cultures and/or nationalities has not yet been accomplished. Two observations inform this conclusion: First, the users of FQS (readers, authors of the media units, etc. have not used the FQS Discussion Board to make remarks or replies to the reviews nor have they have not presented additional views, comments, etc. Second, the language of the reviews typically reflects the language of the respective media unit and this means that specific discourses seldom cross language boundaries. The opportunity, therefore, to influence similar discussions, taking place in other tongues, seldom occurs. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0202281

    Vigencia de la tradición.

    A propósito del cambio en la presentación de la portada de MEDICINA hacemos un comentario de tipo periodístico, ya que afrontamos varios aspectos que tanto por las Directivas de la Academia como por el Consejo Editorial fueron cuidadosamente analizados antes de tomar esta determinación. Sea el primero de ellos el de buscar para la Revista una identidad fiel y estable, trasunto representativo de su función académica de informar sobre la actividad que se mueve en su seno y que comprende las inquietudes de sus Directivas y miembros, traducidas en iniciativas y trabajos científicos propios u ocasionalmente también solicitados o aceptados a colaboradores notables, con la finalidad de estimular la calidad, altura y variedad para nuestra publicación.

    Otro aspecto de esa identidad no atañe el patrimonio científico y cultural, sino a la presentación, puesto que se consideró en las deliberaciones que la revista de la Academia Nacional de Medicina debe mostrar definidamente algo de la majestad inherente a su categoría auténticamente nacional que exige culto a la tradición ecuménica representada en este caso por el emblema de Esculapio y a la vez a la historia vernácula representada simbólicamente aquí. En primer lugar, por MEDICINA que es la continuidad de la original REVISTA MEDICA existente en el siglo pasado, a la sazón publicación periódica de la sociedad de MEDICINA Y CIENCIAS NATURALES cuando fue promulgada la Ley 71 de 1890 que la convirtió, por acuerdo y voluntad del Gobierno Nacional de esa época y de los siguientes, en ACADEMIA NACIONAL DE MEDICINA DE COLOMBIA Y cuyo artículo 70. reza así..."LA REVISTA MEDICA será el periódico oficial de la Academia"; y en segundo lugar por la diagramación interior ilustrada ahora con diseños de nuestro arte precolombino, cultura Tumaco para esta edición.

With this journal we would like to harmonize the dialectical oxymoron: to go back to the origins in order to better understand modernity, to critically observe the global from the local (and vice versa, to examine the complex relationship between the Orient and the West.

The vicious circle can derive into a virtuous circle, a means to reach and apprehend transculturalism. The texts, authors and genres approached do not necessarily have to limit themselves to the authors canonically commended to the occidental Parnassus. More often than not, genres, authors and mass media pulled over the margins of the shores of high culture have a wider impact. Object of attention can and should also be artists in different platforms, such as cinema, comic, television, music, internet, video game console, and even smartphone devices. The journal will also welcome didactic and pedagogical studies in Humanities (both theoretical and practical aspects; interviews to figures who have a say in order to throw some light, without dazzling any of us either, on the seas that we are determined to sail from today onwards; and finally, book reviews which deal with relevant current publications, that we prefer imbibed with critique and broad-minded perspective rather than descriptive and over simplistic.

El dialelo puede llegar a ser un círculo virtuoso, un instrumento para alcanzar y aprehender la transculturalidad. Los textos, autores y géneros estudiados no tienen por qué circunscribirse a los autores aupados al Parnaso del canon occidental. En muchas ocasiones, tienen más impacto cultural los géneros, autores y medios de comunicación orillados en los márgenes de la cultura “seria”: también pueden y deben ser objeto de la atención de los autores medios y soportes como el cine, el cómic, la televisión, la canción, internet, las videoconsolas y hasta los smartphones.

I am excited to begin my new role as Editor-in-Chief at a time when the journal is functioning well and the Editorial Team has a sufficient amount of experience to confidently manage the publishing process, but is young enough to be open to new ideas and make changes without too much angst. Mostly, I hope that the journal can quickly respond to the needs of our readers, authors, and everyone who works to make the journal a success. I am always pleasantly surprised when we put out calls for volunteer help and are overwhelmed with the number of people who are interested in contributing to the journal. I definitely believe that the more people who are involved, the better the end result will be, since more ideas and points of view only strengthen the quality of our endeavour.To kick off this first issue of 2009, we debut a new section called Using Evidence in Practice. This section features brief reports of LIS practitioners' use of evidence to assist with decision making. We hope that this section will attract all the practitioners out there who are trying to incorporate evidence into their daily practice, and want to share some of their successes or struggles with the evidence-based process. The section follows a structured format, so that readers can always expect to be provided with information on a project that includes an overview of the setting, problem, evidence that was used, how change was implemented, the outcome of those changes,and the author’s reflections on trying to implement change by using evidence. I hope these brief reports of “real-life” stories inspire and provide ideas for our readers. Our first article in this section looks at one library’s exploration of the use of folksonomy tags and what the evidence they gathered might mean for the cataloguing of their electronic dissertations and theses collection.I am pleased to announce that we have a new

    Full Text Available I have to admit that writing an editorial for this issue was a struggle. Trying to sit down and write when the sun was shining outside and most of my colleagues were on vacation was, to say the least, difficult. Add to that research projects and conferences…let’s just say that I found myself less than inspired. A pitiful plea for ideas to a colleague resulted in the reintroduction to a few recent evidence based papers and resources which inspired further searching and reading. Though I generally find myself surrounded (more like buried in research papers and EBLIP literature, somehow I had missed the great strides that have been made of late in the world of evidence based library and information practice. I realize now that I am inspired by the researchers, authors and innovators who are putting EBLIP on the proverbial map. My biggest beef with library literature in general has been the plethora of articles highlighting what we should be doing. Take a close look at the evidence based practitioners in the information professions: these are some of the people who are actively practicing what has been preached for the past few years. Take, for example, the about‐to‐be released Libraries using Evidence Toolkit by Northern Sydney Central Coast Health and The University of Newcastle, Australia (see their announcement in this issue. An impressive advisory group is responsible for maintaining the currency and relevancy of the site as well as promoting the site and acting as a steering committee for related projects. This group is certainly doing more than “talking the talk”: they took their experience at the 3rd International Evidence Based Librarianship Conference and did something with the information they obtained by implementing solutions that worked in their environment. The result? The creation of a collection of tools for all of us to use. This toolkit is just what EBLIP needs: a portal to resources aimed at supporting the information

    I am delighted to inform you that from January 2010 Professor Alfred K Louis of the University of Saarland, Germany, will be the new Editor-in-Chief of Inverse Problems. Alfred joins us with a wealth of experience and a great deal of respect from the community. He has served the journal in a number of ways as an Editorial Board member, outstanding reviewer and author. We very much look forward to working with him to continue to publish the highest quality articles in the field and build on our extremely successful special section and topical review programmes. Whilst welcoming Alfred to the position, we are also keen to thank our outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Professor Bill Symes, for the fabulous job that he has done over the past five years. Under Bill's direction, Inverse Problems has gone from strength to strength. In fact, in the last year we have taken the step of moving from six to 12 issues a year, reflecting the increased number of high-quality papers submitted to the journal. During the last five years we have published a wide range of fantastic special sections and topical reviews, including a celebration of the journal's 25th year (issue 12 2009), in which Bill played a pivotal role. We are very much looking forward to 2010 and will be celebrating our 25th birthday further with a selection of highlighted articles chosen from the past 25 years. We hope that you will continue to enjoy reading the journal. If you have any feedback, comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at ip@iop.org. Zoë Crossman Publisher

    Full Text Available Welcome to the December issue of EBLIP, the final issue of my first year as Editor-in-Chief. A year which I have thoroughly enjoyed and one where the fears over what to write in my editorials haven’t materialised. This quarter, ethics has featured quite heavily in my working life so I decided to make this the topic of the editorial, sharing some of my thoughts regarding evidence, ethics and how ethical principles are implemented within the EBLIP journal.Ethics are “principles of conduct or standards of behaviour governing an individual or profession” (Library and Information Science Editorial Committee, 2010, and as individuals or professionals we may be governed by various ethical codes. As I'm sure you know, EBLIP originated in the health domain, where ethical values and ethical research feature strongly. Indeed, by its formal definition, research cannot take place unless “ethical approval” from an appropriate committee has been granted. The practicalities of taking research through the ethical approval process can often be time consuming, and those involved in research need to bear this in mind when planning a project. Each committee will have a slightly different form and process (which can add to the frustration of the researcher, but basically will make their decision to approve on the basis that the research includes obtaining informed consent from participants (i.e., participants know what the research is about and what their involvement will mean; that the research will not cause harm to participants; that confidentiality will be maintained; and that the research undertaken is methodologically rigorous and worthwhile. Preparing a proposal for ethical approval, whilst time consuming, makes the researcher think about all aspects of the research and how it is going to be operationalized, which can save lots of time and effort in the long run and may well also improve the research design. These principles are the same whatever

    Science.gov (United States)

    Blackburn, D. A.

    1990-01-01

    Since its first issue in 1965 Metrologia has had just three editors, a history of tenure which suggests that those who hold the post find in it sufficient to interest, occupy, challenge and amuse them. I see no reason to doubt that this happy circumstance will continue and look forward to my own period as editor with the intention of retaining, insofar as I am able to interpret them, the best traditions the journal has established so far. As I take up my editorial duties I have become aware that surrounding Metrologia there is a small community of authors, reviewers and readers on whose support the success of the journal entirely depends. It is a community in which the roles change daily with some of its members engaged, even simultaneously, as reader, reviewer and author. I am well aware that the goodwill extended to me as I enter this community is in no small part due the efforts of the outgoing editor, Dr Ralph Hudson, whose easy, engaging and courteous, yet firm, relationship with authors and reviewers emerges clearly from editorial correspondence. I thank him for that he has done and wish him an active and happy retirement. A short foray into the records of Metrologia shows - in the first editorial - that four main kinds of article were originally envisaged: research articles likely to contribute to progress in fundamental scientific measurements, reports of experiments or techniques of particular importance or originality in the area of secondary measurement, articles concerning the decisions of the Comité International des Poids et Mesures, and review articles. No balance was specified but a priority was assigned to articles dealing with fundamental metrology. Of the four categories, the first two represent the core of Metrologia's activity and largely determine its reputation as a publication. For this reason, editorial implementation of the policy set by the CIPM is mainly exercised through the operation of a reviewing system which is intentionally strict

  5. Editorial behaviors in peer review.

    Editors play a critical role in the peer review system. How do editorial behaviors affect the performance of peer review? No quantitative model to date allows us to measure the influence of editorial behaviors on different peer review stages such as, manuscript distribution and final decision making. Here, we propose an agent-based model in which the process of peer review is guided mainly by the social interactions among three kinds of agents representing authors, editors and reviewers respectively. We apply this model to analyze a number of editorial behaviors such as decision strategy, number of reviewers and editorial bias on peer review. We find out that peer review outcomes are significantly sensitive to different editorial behaviors. With a small fraction (10 %) of biased editors, the quality of accepted papers declines 11 %, which indicates that effects of editorial biased behavior is worse than that of biased reviewers (7 %). While several peer review models exist, this is the first account for the study of editorial behaviors that is validated on the basis of simulation analysis.

It is unknown where papers...... concerning these issues are typically published. We therefore set out to study the distribution of such papers in the biomedical literature. METHODS: In this pilot study, we conducted a MEDLINE search for papers on editorial research published in the year 2012. RESULTS: We found 445 articles published in 311...... journals with a median of one article per journal (range: 1-17). CONCLUSION: The publication of papers on editorial research seems to be dispersed.

    Dear readers, Time goes fast. It is already 2009, and Laser Physics Letters starts the sixth year of its existence, with the first issue of volume 6 being out of print. We are pleased to inform you that during these years LPL has become one of the top-rank journals in laser physics. Of course, this has been possible due to the high-level contributions from the authors of more than fifty countries. We are glad to inform our past and future authors that the 2007 impact factor of LPL is equal to 1.918. Publishing in LPL provides several advantages. The accepted papers appear in the on-line version ten days after their acceptance. The refereeing is fast, usually taking not more than a week. So, the on-line versions of the accepted articles, with the corresponding DOI and publication dates, appear in the Early View section in about two weeks after being submitted to the Editorial Office. The journal Laser Physics Letters, together with Laser Physics, is the main organizer of the annual International Laser Physics Workshops. The previous workshop was held, from June 30 to July 4, 2008, in Trondheim, Norway. The next workshop will be held, from July 13 to July 17, 2009, in Barcelona, Spain. We invite our readers and authors to take part in the Workshop LPHYS'09. The present tendency assures us that the level of LPL will rise in future, together with its impact factor. Once again, we are grateful to our authors for their high-level contributions and to our referees for their efficient and fast refereeing. Sincerely Yours, The Editorial Board

    Evidence Summaries are based on research in the medical information field. Our 52 Editorial Advisors and 21 Evidence Summaries writers come from many different areas including school libraries, law libraries, library schools, public libraries,a cademic libraries, research institutions, etc. Admittedly, there is some bias here since we make every attempt to ensure that we have a balanced team of Editorial Advisors and Evidence Summary writers. That aside, the evidence based movement, I’m pleased to say, appears to be reaching far beyond medical librarianship. The proverbial saying that “it’s all in the word” doesn’t hold here. You may be practicing in an evidence based manner without even realizing it. Do you make evidence informed decisions? Do you perform action based research? Have you provided a solid literature review to support a proposal?Have you presented a thorough evaluationon an implemented service? Answering yes to any of these questions does not increase the likelihood that you are a librarian in the health sciences. Rather, it demonstrates the far‐reaching evidence based activities of people in this most impressive cadre of professionals in the library and information field. This issue of Evidence Based Library andInformation Practice, like the past 3 issues, is robust with excellence. The quality of the research articles and the Evidence Summaries is extraordinary and once again, surpasses my already high expectations. We have reached a milestone: this issue marks the end of our first year as a new journal.

For several years now, the editor of this journal, Victoria Tur Viñes, PhD, has given me the chance to collaborate, first as a member of the Scientific Committee, next as Editorial Secretary in charge of coordinating several monographs, and now as co-editor. To paraphrase the writer González Moore, “generosity is always the best path”. Undoubtedly, the act of sharing time and locations means that new synergies come together, moving towards one single objective: for the Mediterranean Journal of Communication to continue gaining in prestige as a wide-ranging source of knowledge that continues to reap success. Talking of success, in May we received the great news that RMC is now indexed in EMERGING SOURCE CITATION INDEX (ESCI - Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters.

  16. Editorial Note FQS Reviews: Editorial Work is "Communication Work"

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Günter Mey

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available Editorial Notes provide a view "behind the scenes" of FQS Reviews, reporting and describing the editorial process. The first topic in this Editorial Note focuses on changes in the way reviewers are found. As FQS Reviews began we preferred finding reviewers by posting on different listservs to inform others about review copies of books and other media. In the next phase of FQS Reviews—aside from postings—we attempted to establish a core of authors who would exclusively write reviews. The second topic describes an analyses of 131 archived files (first drafts of reviews published in FQS and the analyses of the e-mail contacts between the reviewers and the editorial team which accompany the peer review process. One result of our analyses is that the quality of a review is independent from way the reviewer was recruited (postings on listservs or established core reviewer; no significant differences can be seen between the two groups (reviewers found via listservs or established reviewers. More, important, however, is the intensive "communication work" between editors and reviewers—a necessary communication to guarantee standardization and maintenance of quality. This is critical as our focus is on the review as a "unique contribution" within the research community. To give an insight into the intensive communication work an anonymous case study of a "failed" review is included. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs040115

  7. Editorial: Sales Strategy (2010

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chris McPhee

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available The editorial theme for this issue of the OSBR is Sales Strategy. While "marketing" is everything a company does to build interest in its offers, "sales" consists of converting these offers into cash. By "sales strategy," we refer to all sales planning and process development activities leading up to the actual selling of a product or service. In his recent blog post at MaRS Discovery District, Mark Zimmerman answered a question he is frequently asked by the founders of startups: "How do we find a good sales person?" In short, his answer is "Don't." This is not meant as a slight to sales professionals, but rather, Zimmerman is advocating that companies should not equate having sales professionals to having a sales strategy. Sales professionals have a critical role to play in a company's success, but they are being given an impossible task if asked to sell something that has not been validated with customers. Zimmerman explains that sales professionals should be hired only once a company has validated that the value proposition resonates with customers and that the sales model will be effective. This lesson also applies to established companies, where existing sales staff require this same foundation to be effective. So how does a company determine whether its value proposition resonates with customers? The answer, of course, is to talk to customers. In the OSBR and elsewhere, the need for early customer input is a dominant theme in recent discussions of product development, marketing, and now sales strategy. By talking to customers, listening to how they describe their needs, and interpreting how their needs could be met, a value proposition can tested and refined. It is far more efficient and effective to iteratively refine a value proposition before attempting to sell than to attempt a salvage operation in response to slumping sales. Customer input is also a critical ingredient in developing an effective sales strategy. In this issue of the

    oscillating light `waves' had to be quantized as well. Several articles in this issue of Physics Education celebrate the first year of the quantum, 1900. I am grateful and beholden to Board Member and co-editor Gren Ireson for his contacts and nomination of the various contributors. It does seem strange, however, a full century after its discovery full of its amazing success that the essential quantum nature of practically everything is still kept hidden from school students, in the UK at least. Let's see what happens in the coming century. Now for another quantum leap. This is the last issue of Physics Education that I shall have the honour of editing. In fact, I shall leap into historical obscurity as the very last honorary editor. Great efforts by your Editorial Board - over a fair number of years! - have resulted in a radical reorganizing of both the journal and the way it is produced. It's been an interesting five years, a time of falling numbers but quite radical innovations in post-16 physics education. IoPP and the IoP are working together to revitalize what may have been seen by many as a staid if respectable and authoritative publication. We shall keep the authority and even respectability but hope to liven things up a bit. The new editor is Kerry Parker of Sheffield College. She will take on a stronger role than I and my predecessors have had, and will be working at IoPP in Bristol two days a week. There are many obvious advantages in this, and I look forward to seeing the new design and approach that will start with the January 2000 issue. So, it's goodbye from me - and also from the unsung heroine of Physics Education for even longer. Managing Editor Dr Jill Membrey has been doing the really hard work at Bristol for many years, but is now moving on to other things at IoPP. I am extremely grateful for the highly professional care and support she has provided for myself and the Editorial Board over the years. The new Managing Editor is Andrea Pomroy, who arrives at

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL O ano de 2003 tem um traço especial para aqueles que, a partir da Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC, se empenham em contribuir com o progresso da Biblioteconomia e Ciência da Informação no Brasil. Neste ano, o Curso de Biblioteconomia (BBD da UFSC está chegando aos seus trinta (30 anos de criação e funcionamento. Não é muito tempo! Mas é um tempo que tem sido carregado de profundas mudanças e inquietações. Ao longo destas 3 décadas muitos acontecimentos no mundo e no Brasil têm contribuído para a permanente transformação do BBD. No momento, o Curso está composto por uma segunda geração de docentes. Do primeiro grupo, há pouquíssimas/os colegas. Contudo, o principal Departamento do Curso – o Departamento de Ciência da Informação (CIN – tem, atualmente, mais da metade de seu quadro docente formado de Doutores. Isso dá um outro élan para o BBD, que desde o ano de 1984 deixou de ser um curso em horário diurno para transformar-se em curso de horário noturno e, assim, pode oferecer mais oportunidades para a população brasileira interessada em fazer seu ingresso no ensino superior. Ao correr destes trinta anos outras coisas aconteceram: o envolvimento dos professores do CIN e BBD com a oferta de mais de 10 Cursos de pós-graduação lato sensu; a participação de vários desses professores em atividades de pós-graduação stricto sensu; a realização de eventos, consultorias, pesquisas e o esforço pela instalação de um programa de pós-graduação stricto sensu em Ciência da Informação. Eis que em dezembro de 2002 a CAPES deu o seu aval para que a UFSC, através da iniciativa e liderança do Departamento de Ciência da Informação, possa dar início ao Mestrado em Ciência da Informação que, como programa de pós-graduação na área, será o primeiro na Região Sul do Brasil e do Cone Sul da América do Sul.

But during the day when I was so tired, the content being presented at the conference and the people I met kept me buzzing and wide awake! It is always nice to find a group of people who are interested in the same things as you are, and to do so in a beautiful setting with great food and a friendly environment is all the better. In my opinion, the 5th EBLIP conference was the best yet! I returned to Canada inspired and intellectually stimulated.The EBLIP conference is one of the few times that those of us who work on the EBLIP journal have a chance to get together and talk in person. Our journal editors are situated in the U.K., Canada, and the United States, so our work is done primarily via e‐mail and the occasional conference call. Three of us made it to Stockholm (Alison, Lorie and myself, so it was great to touch base in person and have a drink or two together! We also got to see several members of the Editorial Advisory board, as well as those who write evidence summaries for us, or are involved in some other way. Meeting some of these people in person for the first time after a lengthy e‐mail relationship is quite a treat! The Editors took the opportunity at the conference to hold a user group meeting, inviting anyone who was interested to attend and provide us with feedback about the journal. To start we provided an update, which included the fact that the journal has over 2000 registered readers. Did you know that in just one month (May 25 – June 24, 2009 we had 4649 site visits; 3,678 of them unique? Most visits to the journal are from the United States, followed by Canada, Australia, and the U.K. But we have people accessing the journal from all over world, and now that we are tracking site traffic via Google Analytics, it is easy to see on a map where our readers reside.

    Physical Biology is a new peer-reviewed publication from Institute of Physics Publishing. Launched in 2004, the journal will foster the integration of biology with the traditionally more quantitative fields of physics, chemistry, computer science and other math-based disciplines. Its primary aim is to further the understanding of biological systems at all levels of complexity, ranging from the role of structure and dynamics of a single molecule to cellular networks and organisms. The journal encourages the development of a new biology-driven physics based on the extraordinary and increasingly rich data arising in biology, and provides research directions for those involved in the creation of novel bio-engineered systems. Physical Biology will publish a stimulating combination of full length research articles, communications, perspectives, reviews and tutorials from a wide range of disciplines covering topics such as: Single-molecule studies and nanobiotechnology Molecular interactions and protein folding Charge transfer and photobiology Ion channels; structure, function and ion regulation Molecular motors and force generation Subcellular processes Biological networks and neural systems Modeling aspects of molecular and cell biology Cell-cell signaling and interaction Biological patterns and development Evolutionary processes Novel tools and methods in physical biology Experts in the areas encompassed by the journal's scope have been appointed to the Editorial Scientific Committee and the composition of the Committee will be updated regularly to reflect the developments in this new and exciting field. Physical Biology is free online to everyone in 2004; you are invited to take advantage of this offer by visiting the journal homepage at http://physbio.iop.org This special print edition of Physical Biology is a combination of issues 1 and 2 of this electronic-only journal and it brings together an impressive range of articles in the fields covered, including a popular

    Plagiarism Plagiarism is, we are pleased to observe, not a common occurrence in Physics in Medicine & Biology (PMB); however, like those responsible for all scientific journals, we are concerned about plagiarism, and very keen to prevent it. The Publications Committee of the International Organization of Medical Physics (IOMP) has prepared a generic editorial on plagiarism. The editorial is reproduced here (with permission of the IOMP), with slight modifications to enhance its relevance to the audience of PMB, along with our procedures for dealing with any cases of plagiarism should they ever arise. Plagiarism (from the Latin 'plagiare', 'to kidnap') is defined as 'the appropriation or imitation of the language, ideas, and thoughts of another author, and representation of them as one's original work' (the Random House Dictionary of the English Language—unabridged). Plagiarism is a serious breach of research ethics that, if committed intentionally, is considered research misconduct. Plagiarism in its most serious form is the passing off of all, or large sections, of another author's published paper as one's original work. If, following appropriate confidential investigation (see below), such a plagiarism is established, this will result in heavy sanctions including retraction of the article, up to a 5 year publication ban from PMB, and informing of employers and/or professional bodies (even after one offence). This may result in loss of research funding, loss of professional stature, and even termination of employment of the plagiarizing author(s). Plagiarism undermines the authenticity of research manuscripts and the journals in which they are published, and compromises the integrity of the scientific process and the public regard for science. Plagiarism violates the literary rights of the individuals who are plagiarized, and the property rights of copyright holders. Violation of these rights may result in legal action against the individual(s) committing

    Full Text Available As preocupações teóricas que, há dois anos, deflagraram o projeto editorial de Galáxia foram tematizados sob vários pontos de vista nesse número. Desde sua primeira edição, a revista vem defendendo a noção de transdisciplinaridade, seja como forma de abordagem dos diferentes fenômenos da cultura, seja como tema mesmo de várias das intervenções teóricas nela abrigadas. Privilegiar o trânsito entre disciplinas e abordagens, porém, não é um exercí­cio acadêmico. Traduz a compreensão que orienta a abordagem semiótica no tratamento dos produtos da cultura planetária, de suas formas comunicacionais e artí­sticas totalmente mergulhadas nas chamadas novas tecnologias (sistemas digitais, ambientes de rede, realidade virtual, bem como de suas comunidades multiculturais. O exercí­cio transdisciplinar pareceu-nos uma estratégia fundamental para o tratamento de problemas postos na cultura graças ao arrefecimento entre dicotomias ou campos tidos como oponentes. A discussão sobre as relações entre mí­dia e arte inserem-se, com ênfase, nesse novo contexto. Esse é um dos temas inquietantes que está na mente dos pesquisadores e, por isso mesmo, organizou a pauta de discussão deste quarto número de Galáxia. Alguns enfrentamentos sobre o encontro entre arte e mí­dia foram apresentados nos ensaios que compõem o fórum. A intervenção de Arlindo Machado convida o leitor a desfazer equí­vocos: não existe arte que possa prescindir dos meios de seu tempo. Evidentemente sua fala traduz uma linha vigorosa de seu pensamento: a impossibilidade de se pensar comunicação fora do diálogo com as artes e suas linguagens. Ana Claudia de Oliveira enfrentou a tarefa de análise de produções artí­sticas realizadas com os meios e mí­dias de seu tempo para dar conta de um problema caro à comunicação: as estratégias de interação. Embora o foco de seu interesse seja a arte contemporânea, suas idéias confrontam

    Full Text Available Do ponto de vista da constituição do projeto editorial de Galáxia, formulamos três blocos: o dossiê temático, os artigos científicos e as resenhas. Os dossiês são constituídos espontaneamente a partir das colaborações enviadas e aprovadas ou, em outras ocasiões, pré-propostos, sendo alguns autores convidados e outros provenientes dos processos de seleção por parecer. Nesta edição, por exemplo, o dossiê "Cinema em caos contemporâneo" foi construído não só com vários artigos aprovados pelos pareceristas mas também com a reunião de alguns textos provenientes do ciclo "Entendendo o século XXI através do cinema", realizado no Centro Cultural da Companhia Paulista de Força e Luz (CPFL, pelo departamento de Cinema (Decine da Unicamp, com curadoria de Fernão Ramos. Agradecemos à CPFL a liberação desses textos. O presente dossiê apresenta seis artigos, escritos por Olgária Matos, Leda Motta, José Ribeiro, Gláucia Pimentel, Flávia Pitaluga e Luis Vadico. Em linhas gerais, o fio condutor resultante do dossiê se tece a partir do ponto nodal "as mudanças da racionalidade e da comunicação na contemporaneidade". Olgária Matos, professora da USP, examina o filme Crash e afirma que depois de Babel não há Pentecostes: a incomunicação grassa na atualidade, reino da contingência e da dispersão. Leda Mota, professora da PUC-SP, dá um curto-circuito temporal em Hitchcock e coloca o diretor para fazer, a partir de seus filmes, uma análise do presente: trata-se então de uma leitura avant la lettre dos sintomas da cultura pós-moderna. José Ribeiro, coordenador do Laboratório de Antropologia Visual da Universidade Aberta de Portugal, examina o filme de Vertov O homem da câmera de filmar para colocar as relações entre cinema e história contemporânea, principalmente sob a perspectiva da antropologia visual, considerando a importância atual de construção de linguagens audiovisuais hipermidiáticas.

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL Somos todos testemunhas das grandes mudanças que, nos últimos trinta anos, afetam a uma parcela muito ampla da vida no planeta. Grande parte dessas mudanças decorre de uma acentuada aventura tecnológica proporcionada pela incontrolável apropriação e inovação de conhecimentos. Saber que parte substancial disso resulta da pesquisa e que esta é um dos produtos do fazer acadêmico traz à tona a questão relativa aos públicos aos quais as pesquisas científicas respondem; seja pela atuação dos pesquisadores nas ciências definidas como duras ou naquelas afirmadas como humanas e sociais. Sem uma reflexão maior, quase com um simples olhar de senso comum, dá para perceber que embora os pesquisadores de um ou do outro ramo tenham, pelos seus ideais acadêmicos originais, a melhora da condição humana como fim de seus esforços, chegar a este alvo exige a transposição de caminhos sobre os quais percorrem com muito maior vigor os interesses econômicos e políticos dos grupos articuladores das forças de poder e de mando. Dentro deste espaço, claro está que não se coloca do lado dos produtores de ciência e tecnologia a capacidade de determinar onde aplicar o conhecimento, quanto aplicar na inovação, quanto extrair como lucro financeiro dos produtos a serem consumidos, para quem direcionar os produtos feitos, que benefícios efetivos serão alcançados pela humanidade, incluídos os próprios cientistas e tecnólogos, por exemplo. Como trabalhadores do saber ou da geração de máquinas, equipamentos e organizadores da informação e de seu fluxo, todos nós, pesquisadores e gestores de conhecimento, somos também parte do arcabouço científico e tecnológico da humanidade, seja como cérebros (a condição que nos percebemos seja como extensões das máquinas que processam e difundem o conhecimento básico ou aplicado (a condição com que os donos dos poderes nos vêem.

A atualidade decorre da circunstância de que há um sentimento em processo de generalização de que quase não há mais tempo para olhar o passado, senão como referência do que não pode mais servir como fonte de inspiração ou fonte de onde se poderá extrair idéias instrumentalmente aplicáveis ao mundo contemporâneo, especialmente de uma contemporaneidade que se mede em não mais que uma década. Desse modo, um artigo que examina a literatura sobre formação profissional, concentra a sua análise em textos que foram majoritariamente produzidos nos cinco anos recentes. Explica-se, sobretudo, pelo fato do enfoque estar dando relevância às tecnologias da informação e tecnologia, sabemos todos, não está sendo tomada nos dias atuais apenas como uma moeda que promove a competição entre países, através de suas elites dirigentes (políticas e econômicas e profissionais, mas, distorcidamente, está sendo levada à conta da razão da existência humana, sendo cada vez mais naturalizada. Por este motivo, um dos mais fortes desafios atuais no e ao campo da informação é incorporar em seu discurso e constante apreciação o trato ético da existência em sociedade e das relações que podem ser construídas nas interações entre homens e mulheres nesta contemporaneidade, sem perder de vista o futuro. Nesta edição, um artigo levanta parte das questões aí colocadas e, como trabalho intelectual, teve como base palestra realizada em 2004, por sua autora, em um Encontro dos Profissionais Bibliotecários do Estado de São Paulo, voltado para a discussão do tema

    Since its establishment in 1998, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Editorial Fellowship has been offering unique opportunities to radiologists from around the world who have a strong interest in radiologic journalism. For the past 16 years, the selected RSNA Editorial Fellows have learned essential processes involved in the production of Radiology and RadioGraphics by working closely with the editors, associate editors, and staff. The editorial fellowship for radiology attending physicians was renamed the RSNA William R. Eyler Editorial Fellowship, in honor of the founding editor of RadioGraphics, with the first Eyler fellow selected in 2005. Additionally, several years ago, a second fellowship was created for radiology trainees, which is now named the RSNA William W. Olmsted Editorial Fellowship for Trainees, in honor of the most recent emeritus editor of RadioGraphics. For the special centennial year of the journal Radiology, several former editorial fellows were interested in knowing what the previous fellows are up to presently and how their experience and learning from the fellowship influenced and contributed to their academic career development. The invitation to share their experience of the RSNA Editorial Fellowship was sent to 19 previous RSNA Editorial Fellows. We report the findings from 16 of these fellows who responded. We found that almost all previous RSNA Editorial Fellows (15 of 16, 94%) stayed in academic radiology, and each is currently leading a successful academic career. All of them are currently actively serving in one or more positions as an editor, associate editor, reviewer, and/or editorial board member of various radiology journals and clinical journals related to their area(s) of academic expertise. Among the 16 previous editorial fellows who responded, there are four chairs and six vice-chairs of their respective radiology departments.

The individuals who have participated are listed on the masthead in each issue of the Journal. Many of the current Editorial Board members have participated continually since the initiation of the Journal - a commitment of over 16 years. They have provided oversight as the Journal has evolved, and their critical insights in the discussion of issues as they have developed, as well as their suggestions for new directions, have significantly contributed to the maintenance of Journal quality. Our associate editors have been particularly active. They have coordinated and, frequently, developed much of the content for the special sections - adult and paediatric infectious disease notes, clinical vignettes and reviews. They have also facilitated the peer review of submitted manuscripts by identifying reviewers and making recommendations for revisions and publication. These contributions have been essential to the continuing operation and high, scientific quality of the Journal.

This article discusses cases and types of “editorial misconduct”, in which the action or inaction of editorial agents ended in publication of fraudulent work and/or poor or failed retractions of such works, all of which ultimately harm scientific integrity and the integrity of the journals involved. Rare but existent, editorial misconduct ranges in severity and includes deliberate omission or ignorance of peer review, insufficient guidelines for authors, weak or disingenuous retraction notices, and refusal to retract. The factors responsible for editorial misconduct and the options to address these are discussed.

  13. Editorial: Journal article reporting standards.

    In this editorial, the author notes that this issue of American Psychologist features a pair of important articles related to newly updated standards for reporting research in psychology in scientific journals, covering both quantitative (Appelbaum et al., 2018) and qualitative (Levitt et al., 2018) research. The increasing breadth and complexity of research, and the importance of communicating it effectively, requires user-friendly resources that can be applied widely to scientific studies. These two articles are intended to serve that purpose, and to encourage thoroughness and accuracy in research reporting, for psychologists and other scientists in broader academic communities. The articles, known as the Journal Article Reporting Standards (JARS) reports, are based on the work of a task force appointed by the American Psychological Association (APA) Publications and Communications Board in 2015.

    Full Text Available En Iberoamérica, y de modo particular en América Latina y el Caribe, hay indicios de que la era de la información ha tenido consecuencias negativas que constituyen amenazas a la libertad del individuo; amenazas que sólo podrían ser neutralizadas por medio de un ejercicio político y legal adecuado.El déficit de democratización y de libertades que como ciudadanos experimentamos, se intensifica debido a las desigualdades tecnológicas. Las opciones ofrecidas por las industrias de la información (hardware y software y de las telecomunicaciones, implican desafíos para el trabajo intelectual, tales como el respeto a los derechos de autor, la aceptabilidad jurídica de documentoselectrónicos y el uso poco ético de la información, entre otros.Como consecuencia, se requiere de respuestas, por parte de legisladores y juristas, que regulen el manejo de la información, respetando, al mismo tiempo, el ejercicio de la libertad, la ética yla igualdad social.Este nuevo número de Enl@ce es el resultado de una convocatoria que invitaba a difundir investigaciones y análisis de experiencias acerca de la adecuación de las normas jurídicas al vertiginoso desarrollo y uso de las tecnologías de la información, la protección de datos electrónicos dentro de un marco legal que flexibilice su adecuado manejo, y otros importantes aspectos que acercan lo jurídico a la información electrónica. El manejo de datos debe ser una vía para el fomento de una sociedad que, basada en la información, se enmarque siempre dentro del estricto manejo ético de las normas, y atienda a las complejidades jurídicas que se derivan del desarrollo de las tecnologías de información y comunicación.En Enl@ce asumimos la política del uso de la información sin restricciones, libre y al alcance de todos. Abogamos por el derecho universal al acceso de la información que genera conocimiento.En esta materia, el objetivo de Enl@ce es alcanzar significativos niveles de democratización del conocimiento relevante. Por ello, los artículos publicados en el soporte impreso los ponemos en versión electrónica al alcance de los interesados desde los sitios DIALNET, Scielo y Redalyc.

    Full Text Available Because of the systemic connections between soils and many other issues, the attention that is actually paid to soil issues is far greater than is immediately apparent. In many countries, scientists, public servants and politicians are debating sequestration of carbon in soils, deforestation and other land management matters which impact the soil, the atmosphere and the human interests bound up in these.This special edition arose from a workshop held in Iceland in 2012, supported by the Australian Research Council and hosted by the Icelandic Soils Service. It brought together researchers and practitioners with expertise and interest in the human dimensions of natural resource governance. An aim was to generate fresh perspectives on how to govern human behaviour, to improve the sustainability and fairness of our use of the land. The team included experts and practitioners in soil issues, community engagement, psychology, sociology, economics, law and other disciplines from many countries. The papers in this special edition reflect issues that have also been canvassed in other investigations. These papers provide some different perspectives as well as reinforcing some common themes.

Sin embargo, los cambios suscitados en torno a las tecnologías de la información y comunicación TIC, han permitido dentro de cada contexto, cambios en ocasiones exagerados, si se tienen en cuenta aspectos procedimentales antes de su incorporación a los procesos existentes.  Entre tanto, quienes hacen parte de esa nueva tendencia, tienen en su ejercicio un reorganizar natural para adaptarse los nuevos retos que la misma sociedad impone, es decir, las nuevas generaciones están desde ya en capacidad de asumir de forma práctica y eficiente la transición obligatoria hacia el aprender con ayuda de las nuevas herramientas tecnológicas. Durante los últimos años, mucho se ha dicho y escrito al respecto de la incorporación de las tecnologías de la información y comunicación en la educación y de su impacto en los procesos de formación profesional, sin embargo, la dinámica de apropiación y generación de nuevo conocimiento producto de la facilidad de obtención de información, permite que tanto quienes acceden a la educación superior como al sistema mismo, adopten y adapten sus esquemas para permitir en su entorno, su aplicación de manera acertada y contextualizada. Así las cosas, las nuevas formas de organización del trabajo, las exigencias profesionales al respecto, generan un entorno cada vez más exigente que obliga a quienes tienen la responsabilidad constitucional de brindar educación, en el caso colombiano las Instituciones de Educación Superior IES, a propender por establecer modelos educativos que desde lo didáctico favorezcan el desarrollo de habilidades de pensamiento de orden superior que le permitan comprender la realidad de su entorno a partir de las necesidades existentes. Es por lo anterior que la Universidad en el contexto general deberá preparar a sus futuros profesionales para actuar en un espacio, en un contexto y en un universo determinado, para lo cual, se hace necesario formar individuos con la capacidad de analizar, diseñar, desarrollar y proponer soluciones integrales y pertinentes a situaciones profesionales concretas. En este proceso de formación, el aprendizaje en el plano de la Ingeniería, debería instruir al futuro profesional para el desarrollo de habilidades en la utilización y la administración de herramientas para el avance de soluciones que requieran un tratamiento inteligente de la información, y a su vez, le permitan continuar su formación profesional a lo largo de su vida. Por lo tanto, se hace necesario entender de alguna manera la dinámica con la cual se presentan y como se asumen los cambios en materia tecnológica en las organizaciones, para ello se hace indispensable una revisión teórica de las diversas acepciones al respecto, que sirvan como punto de partida para entender y transponer didácticamente el proceso de transformación tecnológica organizacional al contexto académico de formación profesional en las instituciones de educación superior.

    Full Text Available Luego del número sobre los ecosistemas acuáticos continentales, la revista plantea varios aspectos de la problemática de los ecosistemas marinos y costeros, con especial énfasis en ambientes de estuarios, donde se presenta una alta variabilidad espacial y temporal en los factores físicos y químicos asociados a los aportes fluctuantes de agua dulce y al régimen de mareas. A pesar de la gran variabilidad en la salinidad, las áreas de estuarios constituyen hábitats temporales o permanentes de especies de peces e invertebrados muy importantes para la vida y la pesca en la zona costera. Un número importante de especies marinas permanecen en los estuarios desde las fases tempranas de desarrollo hasta la edad pre- adulta, debido a que encuentran allá gran disponibilidad de alimento y protección contra los depredadores marinos. En consecuencia, la oferta pesquera de especies costeras depende de la calidad de estos ambientes. La mayoría de las investigaciones que se entregan se han desarrollado en los golfos de Morrosquillo y de Urabá, inclusive, en algunos casos, aprovechando la misma infraestructura para adelantar trabajos diferentes pero complementarios; las demás se han realizado en las costas del Pacífico y del Atlántico. Además de los artículos correspondientes al tema central, la Revista ofrece un trabajo que se refiere a la enseñanza de los sistemas de información geográfica y otro que pone en práctica estos SIG para estimar la biodiversidad y la estructura de los bosques tropicales; dos estudios que tratan problemáticas ambientales urbanas; y un artículo sobre la evaluación ambiental de la construcción española. El primer número del año 2009 tratará, como tema central, la ciudad latino- americana a través del espacio- tiempo. Esperamos sus aportes con resultados de investigaciones o con reflexiones en torno al tema.

    Full Text Available En los estudios de la población resaltan aquellos ligados a ciertos grupos prioritarios de atención, entre ellos el de la población menor de edad, en este número de la revista se tienen dos artículos ligados a los niños y niñas de diferentes países del continente. Posteriormente se tiene otro artículo ligado al desarrollo de servicios necesarios para contar con una vida saludable y finalmente, se tiene un artículo sobre el cambio en el desarrollo económico de una zona de Costa Rica.Una de las formas más crueles de limitar el potencial del ser humano es privándole del disfrute de su niñez, de su formación y preparación para tener una vida plena. A pesar de los acuerdos y convenios a nivel internacional, hay muchos menores de edad que no asisten a la escuela o colegio por salir a trabajar. Así, el primer artículo permite una estimación de la población menor que podría estar desarrollando “trabajo infantil”; esto mediante la combinación de los aspectos metodológicos de la tabla de mortalidad tradicional con los de la tabla de múltiples decrementos y las estadísticas de la población escolar. El artículo muestra que a pesar de no contarse con toda la información necesaria, es posible obtener una estimación consistente con otras fuentes de información.Cuando la mortalidad infantil desciende se vuelve más difícil lograr reducciones importantes. Sin embargo, los países deben buscar las mejoras necesarias para lograr salvar esas vidas. El segundo artículo muestra los avances que se han logrado en Argentina, Brasil y Uruguay pero, al compararlo con las metas para el 2010 y el 2015 pareciera que no se van a alcanzar, de mantenerse la situación como está. Un aspecto importante de resaltar son las reducciones que se requieren a lo interno de los países donde aún se mantiene una desigualdad importante entre diferentes sectores poblacionales.El desarrollo de una vida plena y saludable está ligado a que se cuente con un ambiente acorde a las necesidades de la población. En nuestras sociedades surgen primero las necesidades y luego viene la reglamentación para solucionar los problemas que se crean del crecimiento no planificado y previsto de nuestras ciudades. En el tercer artículo Chamizo hace una revisión de las leyes y reglamentos que han surgido, de una manera desarticulada, en torno a dos elementos fundamentales de la vida del ser humano moderno: el agua y los residuos sólidos. En el último artículo de Luis Carlos Morales, se presenta el cambio que ha sufrido uno de los cantones más importantes de la provincia de Guanacaste al cambiar su estructura productiva. Guanacaste ha sido desde hace muchas décadas, una zona de expulsión de población. Esto ha llevado a plantear diferentes alternativas productivas, en busca de actividades que le permitan a la población mantenerse en su zona. El turismo ha sido la última actividad apoyada para permitir a la población del lugar, encontrar una fuente de empleo digna. Esto lleva a un cambio importante en la estructura económica al pasar sus ocupaciones principalmente del sector primario al terciario. Sin embargo, esto plantea la interrogante de si el crecimiento económico de la zona llevará a un mayor desarrollo social de sus habitantes, esto es lo que se analiza en este interesante artículo.Finalmente en documentos históricos se presentan las impresiones y recuerdos de José Silverio Gómez, artículo muy interesante de Henri Pittier sobre los recuerdos de un longevo nicoyano.

Su publicación se extendió por varios años.En los últimos años la Facultad  ha realizado un gran esfuerzo por la mejora de la enseñanza de grado y posgrado y paralelamente fomentó el desarrollo de la investigación y más recientemente la creación del Doctorado en la especialidad.Desde varios sectores de la Facultad se planteó la necesidad de recrear la Revista de Ciencias Administrativas que es un elemento de apoyo académico y científico a la Comunidad Universitaria.De allí que se refunde la Revista Ciencias Administrativas que asume y desarrolla los siguientes objetivos:1. Difundir los trabajos de investigación de los académicos en la línea dela Administracióny disciplinas afines.2. Promover la publicación de artículos de apoyo a la docencia.3. Fomentar el intercambio de publicaciones con otras universidades y/o centros de investigación nacionales e internacionales.En la actualidad la matricula de alumnos de Administración de grado y posgrado es una de las nutridas del país, sin embargo las interacciones académicas entre las distintas casas de estudio es limitada. Este medio pretende a contribuir a mejorar esta falencia.Tomamos conciencia de la importancia de esta Revista pero también que su éxito requerirá de un esfuerzo de divulgación significativo. Es nuestro deseo que todos los investigadores y docentes de nuestra Facultad y de las restantes entidades académicas del país y del exterior puedan acceder con facilidad y gratuitamente a esta publicación. Por ello y en esta primera etapa tendrá un formato electrónico que permite no incurrir en abultados presupuestos y así garantizar su continuidad.Invitamos a toda la comunidad académica vinculadas a las Ciencias de la Administración a que nos hagan llegar artículos y sugerencias que permitan mejorar la Revista en esta etapa refundacional y así mejorar los intercambios y acciones conjuntas entre el Sistema Universitario y Académico nacional e internacional.

Three different articles and one interview address this theme from the perspective of design. However, the notion of design is being explored from two somewhat different positions. Øystein Gilje and Marie Leijon use it as an analytical concept in the articles, as it highlights the creative aspects of learning and communication. In an article by Majgaard, Misfeldt and Nielsen and in an interview with professor Jonas Löwgren, it refers instead to a creative process of developing specific tools that, for instance, can be used to support communicating and learning. Both these approaches contribute to an understanding of collaborative and learning processes.

A we make our way in the 21st century, higher education institutions are faced with multiple challenges as they try to prepare future professionals. Issues such as globalization and internationalization, technology, access to information, interculturality, and the like pose challenges for future generations. And, higher education institutions play a fundamental role in shaping how that future will look like.   In the face of multiculturalism and the communication barriers that are bound to happen, many countries and educational systems are incorporating English, not only as a means to facilitate contact among cultures, but as a means of instruction in itself. The groundwork laid down during the past decades by several researchers, such as David Marsh, has paved the way to promote multilingualism, not just by learning a language but also by using the second or foreign language as a content delivery method. Most research in this area has focused on primary and secondary education; thus, the research regarding CLIL and EMI in tertiary education is limited at the moment. However, in recent years there has been a boom in English-taught programs in non-English speaking countries. This means the need for research is this area is bound to grow exponentially as faculty, students, and institutions, and even governments and the labor market, take on the challenges of English-mediated instruction. It is out hope that with this Special Issue, which features research from Japan and Spain, we can contribute meaningful research to the field.

    Full Text Available El presente siglo nos ha traído un cambio paradigmático en relación con la Seguridad Internacional. Los grandes cambios políticos y estratégicos que trajo el término de la Guerra Fría, los grandes avances tecnológicos, el surgimiento de nuevos actores internacionales no estatales y la proliferación de elementos que fueron paulatinamente conformando las llamadas “Nuevas Amenazas”, han afec- tado el curso de las relaciones internacionales y han variado el eje tradicional de los problemas de seguridad y de la defensa. Ya, la seguridad de un Estado no solo considera a las amenazas convencionales, como las más recurrentes y prioritarias en sus agendas, políticas y estrategias de seguridad, sino que hay una tendencia de relegarlas a un segundo plano, donde las “nuevas amenazas”, que tienen muchas veces un impacto mucho más directo e inmediato en las sociedades, pasan a copar las agendas de seguridad.

    Full Text Available Los estudios sobre la política y la estrategia ocupan innumerables volúmenes en las bibliotecas del mundo. Siendo la política el arte de gobernar y la estrategia el arte del general, en sus acepciones quizás más antiguas y básicas, entender cómo se relacionan entre ellas y cómo una se subordina a la otra, también ha sido fuente de numerosos estudios y teorías. Es por estas razones que nuestra revista busca fomentar y presentar a nuestros lectores la importancia que las ciencias políticas y la estrategia tienen dentro del marco de la seguridad y defensa, toda vez que ellas son una responsabilidad única e ineludible del jefe del Estado. El general Manuel Montt Martínez en su obra “La Guerra, su Conducción Política y Estratégica”, escrita en 1955, nos señala la existencia de esta interpenetración entre la política y la estrategia que las hace indivisibles, expresando que “en la preparación de un conflicto, como en su ejecución, no obstante la interpenetración de la política y de la estrategia, ambas desarrollan su labor bien definida... La política y la estrategia marchan juntas, de la mano, desde el principio hasta el fin”

    Das PSZ kann auf eine beständige Lehrtradition zur psychoanalytischen Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen zurückblicken, die bis in die Siebzigerjahre zurückreicht. Zwar führte die Kinderanlayse zur Gründungszeit des Seminars noch eine eher randständige Existenz und wurde lediglich von einigen wenigen, wie Jacques Berna oder Pedro Grosz, vertreten. Berna sollte später nach Hamburg auswandern und dort den holländischen Kinder- und Jugendpsychiater Sjef Teuns kennenlernen. Um diesen und Bianca Gordon, einer Londoner Kinderanalytikerin, die ihrerseits auf Veranlassung von Sjef Teuns nach Zürich eingeladen worden war, entwickelte sich im Laufe der Jahre eine stetig wachsende Gruppe von AnalytikerInnen, welche die psychoanalytische Kinder- und Jugendlichenpsychotherapie kontinuierlich förderten und lehrten. Heute ist die aus diesen Entwicklungen hervorgegangene «Ressortgruppe Kinder- und Jugendlichenpsychotherapie am PSZ» in der Lage, eine schweizweit einzigartige Weiterbildung in dieser Arbeit anzubieten (siehe: www.psychoanalyse-zuerich.ch. Drei der fünf Autoren sind aktuell Mitglieder der Ressortgruppe: Daniel Bischof, Egon Garstick und Jürgen Grieser. Sie gestalten daher das Kursangebot der laufenden Weiterbildung wesentlich mit. Im vorliegenden Heft ergreifen sie die Gelegenheit, die gegenwärtige Arbeit von Psychoanalytikerinnen und Psychoanalytikern des PSZ mit Kindern und Jugendlichen im Praxisalltag vorzustellen sowie einen Einblick in deren theoretische Reflexion zu vermitteln. Es ist der Autoren Ziel darlegen zu können, wie unter verschiedenen theoretischen Aspekten, die alle dem psychoanalytischen Verständnis zuzuordnen sind, in der Praxis gearbeitet wird. Dabei liegt ihnen daran zu verdeutlichen, dass die Umsetzung des analytischen Denkens in der Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen in äußerst vielfältiger Form stattfindet und den für KinderanalytikerInnen so vertrauten Gedanken zu veranschaulichen, dass Psychoanalyse im Kern als Entwicklungsprozess zu verstehen ist. Anhand kleinerer oder ausführlicherer Auszüge aus Behandlungsverläufen reflektieren ihre Abhandlungen psychoanalytische Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen und veranschaulichen ein mögliches theoretisches Verstehen davon. Alle Texte reflektieren Besonderheiten der kinderanalytischen Arbeit: Kinder suchen nie auf eigenen Wunsch eine Behandlung auf. Sie werden gebracht von Eltern oder anderen Dritten, die aus eigener Motivation, Not oder unter Druck (von Schulen oder Behörden handeln. Vereinfachend lässt sich formulieren: die analytische Arbeit mit Kindern geht nur so weit, wie Eltern dies zulassen können. Kinderanalyse und Psychotherapie mit Kindern und Jugendlichen ist also immer eine Arbeit in einem hoch komplexen Umfeld mit einer besonderen Dynamik zwischen innerer und äußerer Welt. Jürgen Grieser bietet uns in seinem Artikel «Angehörige und andere Dritte in der Psychotherapie» eine metapsychologische Reflexion dessen, was der Einbezug von Eltern oder eben auch anderer Dritter in die Behandlung bedeutet. Ausgangspunkt seiner Überlegungen ist die Tatsache, dass Kinderanalyse immer die Arbeit in einem hochkomplexen Setting bedeutet, in welchem von Beginn an die Frage, wie mit dem Dritten umgegangen werden soll, gestellt werden muss. Der damit eingeleitete Prozess der Triangulierung im therapeutischen Raum gewinnt symbolischen Charakter und vorbildhafte Funktion für den Patienten und seine Entwicklung. Dieser Prozess verlangt vom Analytiker eine hohe triadische Kompetenz. Ausgehend von der Tatsache, dass in jeder Behandlung, auch in derjenigen von Erwachsenen der oder das Dritte in Erscheinung treten und somit zwangsläufig früher oder später Einfluss auf den Verlauf einer Behandlung nehmen wird, entwickelt der Autor den Gedanken, die Familie als inneres Referenzsystem des Therapeuten zu sehen. Verschiedene Implikationen dieser Sichtweise werden im Text diskutiert. In der Elternschaftstherapie hat die Arbeit mit den Eltern das größte Gewicht und steht im Zentrum der therapeutischen Überlegungen. Elternschaftstherapie impliziert die grosse Abhängigkeit des Säuglings bzw. des Kleinkindes vom Familiensystem und fokussiert sich auf die Behandlung der Familienentwicklung. Egon Garstick führt uns in seinem Text, anhand zweier Beispiele, mitten in diese psychoanalytische Arbeit, die stark vom Gedanken der Prävention geprägt ist. Zentrales Paradigma ist dabei die psychoanalytische Entwicklungstheorie. Gesellschaftliches und kulturpolitisches Engagement des Autors führten zu einem intensiven Interesse an den frühen Prozessen in jungen Familien und zu einer erhöhten Sensibilisierung für die zahlreichen Störungen, denen diese Familien in der zeitgenössichen Gesellschaft ausgesetzt sind. Was wir in diesem Text anhand der mitreißenden Falldarstellungen an konkretem therapeutischem Handeln erfahren, wird auch im Text von Jürgen Grieser theoretisch reflektiert. Der Artikel von Anita Garstick-Straumann «Schwierige Übergänge. Peter und Nicole, zwei Fallbeispiele» versetzt uns ins Zentrum des therapeutischen Geschehens in den Behandlungen eines Latenzkindes und eines Kindergartenkindes. Dabei treten die Besonderheiten des analytischen Arbeitens mit Kindern, die Haltung der Therapeutin dem Kind gegenüber und ihre Einstellung zum Geschehen deutlich hervor. In diesem Text sehen wir eindrücklich, dass die psychoanalytische Arbeit mit Kindern nicht einfach Übertragung der psychoanalytischen Arbeit mit Erwachsenen auf Kinder ist, sondern vielmehr eine besondere, der Erwachsenenanalyse gleichrangige, Anwendung der Psychoanalyse darstellt, die zwar auf dieselben Methoden zur Erkenntnisgewinnung setzt, sich aber im Hinblick auf das konkrete Setting, den Behandlungsraum, die Aktivität des Therapeuten, der Therapeutin deutlich unterscheidet. Die Darstellung der Behandlungsverläufe «Peter, der ängstliche Pilot» und «Nicole» verdeutlichen den spezifischen Umgang mit dem Spiel, dem zentralen Medium der Kinderanalyse, bei dem die Grundprinzipien der psychoanalytischen Technik, freie Assoziation des Patienten, Gleichschwebende Aufmerksamkeit der Analytikerin und Abstinenz, genauso verfolgt werden wie in der Erwachsenenanalyse. Daniel Bischof stellt in seinem Artikel «Über integrative Prozesse in der Psychoanalyse von Kindern und Jugendlichen» die technische Grundfrage nach der Möglichkeit therapeutischen Arbeitens mit Kindern und Jugendlichen ganz grundsätzlich: «Seit den Anfängen wurde speziell hinsichtlich der Kinder- und Jugendlichenpsychoanalyse die Frage gestellt, ob es überhaupt moralisch vertretbar und pädagogisch richtig sei, das Kind oder den Jugendlichen mit seiner inneren Welt zu konfrontieren». Anhand einer anschaulich bebilderten Darstellung eines Therapieabschnittes aus der Behandlung eines 12-jährigen «Schlangenbeschwörers» führt uns Daniel Bischof in minutiösen gedanklichen Schritten zur Hypothese, wonach der Kern psychoanalytischer Arbeit mit Kindern über den Prozess der Deutung hinaus reichen muss und es auch darum geht, dem Patienten durch den analytischen Dialog zu helfen, bedrohliche Selbstanteile in seine Persönlichkeit zu integrieren. Dabei wird das analytische Setting als Ressource verstanden, die es dem Analytiker erlaubt, auch in schwierigen Situationen seinen Denkraum zu erhalten oder wieder zu erlangen und damit die haltende Funktion (containing dem Patienten gegenüber beibehalten zu können und dadurch Integrationsprozesse zu ermöglichen. Maria Teresa Diez Grieser schliesslich, präsentiert uns eine Synthese aus ihrer langjährigen klinischen Erfahrung in eigener psychoanalytischer Praxis und der Auseinandersetzung mit den zahlreichen Untersuchungen und Publikationen zu adoleszenten Entwicklungsthemen. Sie formuliert ihre eigene Theorie, die besagt, dass bulimische Symptome bei adoleszenten Jugendlichen vorübergehend kreative Strategien zur Stabilisierung des Selbstbildes der eigenen krisengeschüttelten adoleszenten Entwicklung darstellen können. In bedachten Schritten legt sie dar, welche Funktionen die bulimische Symptomatik in der Adoleszenz übernehmen kann, um die Affektregulierung zu erleichtern. Die Fallvignetten illustrieren zum einen die Besonderheiten der analytischen Arbeit mit Adoleszenten überhaupt und zum anderen die Implikationen der erarbeiteten theoretischen Überlegungen in der konkreten therapeutischen Situation. Ergänzt werden die Beiträge der Ressortgruppe durch einen Artikel von Thomas von Salis zu Sjef Teuns und dessen für das PSZ so bedeutenden Einsatz sowie einem Interview von Emilio Modena mit Pedro Grosz, Ruedi Zollinger und Edi Ruggle, drei namhaften psychoanalytischen Kinder- und Jugendtherapeuten, welche die diesbezüglichen Entwicklungen in der deutschsprachigen Schweiz über die letzten vier Jahrzehnte hin miterlebt, mitgestaltet und mitgeprägt haben. Im Forum informiert uns Fernanda Pedrina sachkundig über die spannenden und wissenswerten Entwicklungen im Bereich des psychotherapeutischen Arbeitens mit Säuglingen und Kleinkindern. Elisabeth von Salis orientiert uns über die Geschichte und die gegenwärtigen Tätigkeiten der psychoanalytisch orientierten sozialpädagogischen «Beratungsstelle Pinocchio», bevor uns Mary Spreng mit einer anschaulichen Fallgeschichte, Einblick in ihre von Sjef Teuns supervidierte Arbeit mit einem körperlich behinderten Kind nehmen lässt. Zwei Präsentationen – die eine von Roland Müller zur Weiterbildung in psychoanalytisch-systemischer Psychotherapie für Kinder, Jugendliche und Familien am Institut KJF in Luzern, die andere des «Forums junge Psychoanalyse» zu den Aktivitäten des Nachwuchses am PSZ – runden nebst vier Buchrezensionen zu den aktuellen Publikationen unserer Seminarmitglieder dieses lesenswerte Heft ab. Erst nach Redaktionsschluss erreichte uns die schmerzliche Nachricht über das Ableben zweier langjähriger Teilnehmer des PSZ. Es sind dies Hans Hehlen, dessen Berthold Rothschild in einem Nachruf gedenkt und der weit über Zürich hinaus bekannt gewordene Träger des Sigmund-Freud-Preises der Stadt Wien, Ehrendoktor der Universität Klagenfurt, Mitbegründer des PSZ und der Ethnopsychoanalyse, Paul Parin. Roland Kaufhold würdigt das facettenreiche Leben und Wirken dieser zentralen Identifikationsfigur, die Paul Parin für mehrere Generationen von PsychoanalytikerInnen am PSZ und darüber hinaus gewesen ist, in einem ebensolchen Nachruf, den er uns verdankenswerter Weise sehr kurzfristig zur Verfügung stellen konnte.

    Full Text Available The discipline of archaeology studies the nature, meanings and effects of past human behaviour over time and space. Moreover, it seeks to clarify the processes that determined this behaviour (Barrett 2001, 144 through the study of material culture and structured landscapes. Among other things, archaeology tries to understand past human volition and subsequent action, disentangling the reasons why people chose certain places to live, utilised specific social, cultural and religious concepts, or applied a particular economy. Perspectives on the subject include material, economic, social and cultural hypotheses, varying through the changes in archaeological theory (e.g. Higgs and Vita-Finzi 1972; Bender et al. 1997; Thomas 1999. In this respect, we have gradually moved towards seeing archaeological landscapes as continuous records of past human behaviour in spatial terms with emphasis on the complex, reciprocal relationship between people and their surroundings. This relationship is considered crucial to how groups categorise and 'construct' their own social and cultural landscapes. This construction should be considered as holistic, based on an embodied experience within a particular environment (e.g. Tilley 1994.

A variedade dos artigos apresentados demonstra o caráter interdisciplinar do periódico, que, nos seis volumes publicados em 2013, pôs à disposição da comunidade acadêmica 118 artigos nas mais distintas áreas, dos quais foram efetuados 46.476 downloads, sem contar os acessos aos artigos que estão nas bases indexadas, tais como ProQuest e EBSCO. Nesse contexto, convém ressaltar e comemorar a inclusão na política científica da Secretaria de Educação Profissional e Tecnológica (SETEC/MEC dos editais de fomento à pesquisa junto ao CNPq. Essas ações fortalecem e validam o papel da agenda de desenvolvimento tecnológico dos Institutos Federais, ajudando a fomentar a produção acadêmica. Na oportunidade, esta editoria aproveita ainda para recomendar dois trabalhos recentemente publicados sobre o IFRN: “A Forja e a Pena”, de Arilene Lucena de Medeiros e “A experiência pioneira do IFRN com reserva de vagas em seus processos seletivos”, de Nadir Arruda Skeete. A primeira obra, resultado de uma minuciosa pesquisa histórica, aborda a trajetória da Escola de Aprendizes de Natal à Escola Técnica Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, com imagens e farta documentação. O livro está disponível em formato digital no endereço http://portal.ifrn.edu.br/pesquisa/editora/livros-para-download/a-forja-e-a-pena-1/at_download/arquivo. O segundo trabalho traz um relato da ousada experiência deste Instituto Federal com ações afirmativas desde as origens até o processo de formalização da reserva de vagas, com a descrição dos mecanismos adotados para o acolhimento dos grupos envolvidos no processo de acesso dos estudantes com baixo nível socioeconômico ao IFRN. Esta joia da política de inclusão social praticada nesta instituição está disponível para download no endereço http://www.flacso.org.br/gea/documentos/estudos_afirmativos/A_experiencia_pionera.pdf. Esta atmosfera dá uma ideia da ação institucional, que busca pautar-se nas melhores práticas do convívio social e do desenvolvimento científico e focar-se no compromisso com a disseminação e a valoração do conhecimento, com vistas a alterar o quadro de desenvolvimento socioeconômico. O registro dessa ação, materializado em mais uma publicação, só é possível graças à relação de mútua confiança entre editoria, autores e avaliadores ad hoc, que se vem consolidando ao longo do tempo, razão pela qual externamos especial agradecimento, ao tempo em que convidamos o leitor a acessar os artigos, com a alegria de compartilhar mais uma nova edição do periódico.

Como se trata de um campo ainda pouco explorado, pode-se dizer que os autores são uma espécie de desbravadores que abrem trilhas a serem percorridas. Explore-as: O Artigo de Ana Cristina Matte apresenta uma interessante reflexão sobre o que pode haver em comum entre a documentação exigida durante o processo de locação de um imóvel e a documentação que deveria auxiliar o usuário de um software. Daniervelin Pereira analisa alguns softwares educativos procurando assinalar seus aspectos positivos e outros nem tanto, sempre em uma perspectiva que foca questões relacionadas à linguagem. Camila Mantovani aborda as algumas conseqüências decorrentes da multiplicação de medias e o deslocamento do receptor daí decorrente. Será que as múltiplas possibilidades ofertadas pelas novas tecnologias acarretam mudanças nos modelos lingüísticos? O Artigo de Mark Webblink, traduzido por Leonardo Santiago e Alexsandro Meireles, procura elucidar várias questões relacionadas ao uso softwares livre e ao código aberto de programação. Sugere ainda algumas das melhores praticas a serem adotadas por aqueles que desenvolvem ou utilizam softwares livre. Fechando este número, Rainer Krüger discute a importância e os benefícios trazidos pela tradução de software livre, não apenas pelos usuários, mas para os próprios tradutores que, assim, têm a oportunidade de participar do desenvolvimento da ferramenta que utilizam. Boa leitura!

    Full Text Available Para abrir a 16ª edição da Revista UNIARA escolhemos o texto Manifestações pela conservação da natureza no Brasil (1784-1889 de Margaret Ferreira dos Santos, professora do curso de Arquitetura do Centro Universitário de Araraquara. Meio ambiente é sempre uma questão importante, tanto que nossa sociedade tem tomado cada vez mais consciência da necessidade de se respeitar e conservar a natureza. É claro que os abusos ainda são freqüentes: o desmatamento desenfreado, as queimadas irresponsáveis e a poluição caótica são uma pequena amostra das mazelas que o progresso, a ganância e o consumismo nos trazem. O texto da professora Margaret, no entanto, traz à tona uma vertente extremamente interessante do assunto. Trata-se de um meticuloso e bem feito estudo histórico sobre as primeiras iniciativas na conservação da natureza no Brasil. A metrópole portuguesa tinha com as terras brasileiras uma relação que os historiadores definem como sendo a chamada colônia de exploração. O intuito primeiro de Portugal era obter o máximo de riqueza, importando-se muito pouco com as conseqüências de seus atos para as colônias.

Nor it is redundant to mention the perspective that the disciplinary group the magazine has always been dedicated to, is nowadays examining. The wish, the choice we pursued during these years in the different issues – broadening as much as possible the research’ horizon outlined by the selected contributions – and the opening to an increasingly wider and more international group of researcher, give today the impression they reached an important goal. But the challenge for a further growth is still on, in the circulation and in the quality of the works to be published. It is not an impossible challenge, being that the advent of digital technologies has not yet exhausted its potentiality to innovate and develop procedures and tools.

    Full Text Available The President of the USA and I have something in common: we play the saxophone. And having briefly heard Clinton play, I would say we are at roughly the same acceptable, though unmistakably amateur, standard. Nevertheless, we are no doubt both so attuned to the sound of the saxophone that it would not be easy to fool either of us into believing that a real instrument is being played if in reality the sound of the instrument had been electronically synthesized. Certain instruments are easier to synthesize than others. For instance, it is hard even for sensitive ears to distinguish between a genuine church organ and a church-organ sound coming out of a good synthesizer. This is partly because the sound quality of the organ is not dependent on the organist: a two-year-old child who presses an organ key achieves no better or worse sound quality with that key than the most gifted organist. On the other hand, a synthesized solo saxophone (like most synthesized instruments tends to have a certain unnatural, mechanical quality which is difficult to pin-point but which to the saxophonist immediately rings false. It was therefore with astonishment that I recently listened to two solo saxophone pieces, one played on a real tenor saxophone by a top-flight jazz saxophonist, the other the result of some keyboard input and clever programming by computer scientists who may well have had only a rudimentary knowledge of music and perhaps no playing skills whatsoever. I was quite unable to say which of the two was synthesized even after repeated listenings. The fact is that the perceived perfection achieved by a professional saxophonist is not perfection at all but an amalgam of skill, flexible reactions and numerous little human errors, and provided that this skill, these reactions and these errors can be identified and quantified - clearly, they can - they can all be coded so that the result is perceived perfection. In short, perceived perfection in instrumental synthesis seems to be merely a matter of how long a programmer is willing to spend on fine-tuning the program code.

    Full Text Available Liebe Leserin, lieber Leser Als bei einer Redaktionssitzung das Thema Psychoanalyse – lokal zum ersten Mal Gestalt annahm, löste es Begeisterung aus. Beflügelt hat uns unter anderem die Schilderung einer Arbeit, in der Fotos von Praxen in verschiedenen Teilen der Welt gezeigt werden. Wir wollten der Globalisierung etwas entgegensetzen und bewusst die lokalen Kulturen und Varianten der Psychoanalyse vorstellen und ihnen Wertschätzung entgegenbringen. Die Euphorie setzte sich fort bei der Akquisition von Projekten. Innert Kürze hatten wir eine Vielzahl von Kolleginnen und Kollegen vor Augen, denen wir unser Projekt vorstellen wollten und die als Autorinnen, Autoren oder Kontaktpersonen für allfällige Beiträge aus verschiedenen Ländern in Frage kamen. Der Hochstimmung folgten dann aber verschiedentlich Enttäuschungen: So entschlossen sich einige der Autoren im letzten Augenblick, den Artikel doch nicht zu schreiben und für einige Kulturen/Länder war es schwierig, Autoren zu finden. Aber nicht nur unsere Kontakte mit den Autoren beinhalteten «Fremdes», dass für uns schwer zu assimilieren war. Auch die Texte lehrten uns einiges über den Umgang mit dem Fremden. Bei jenen Autoren und Autorinnen, die direkt aus Ländern berichteten, in denen nicht Deutsch gesprochen wird, mussten wir auf Englisch umstellen. Da wir im letzten Heft mit englischsprachigen Arbeiten gute Erfahrungen gemacht hatten, sahen wir dies als Chance, auch international eher wahrgenommen zu werden. Es stellte sich dann aber heraus, dass es doch etwas schwieriger war, als wir uns das vorgestellt hatten. Die jeweils lokale Variante des Englischen als Lingua Franca verunsicherte uns sehr! Manchmal indessen erschien uns das Fremde auch allzu bekannt und der Exotismus-Bonus kam uns abhanden. Eine stereotype Geschichte schien sich an verschiedenen Orten der Welt zu wiederholen. Da waren zuerst ein paar Künstlerinnen, Literaten oder Dadaisten, die nahmen Freud in ihre Gedankenwelt auf. Diese Pioniere verstanden sich nicht als Psychotherapeuten oder Analytikerinnen, sie nahmen Freud als Stimulus, um ihre eigenen Ideen von Befreiung und Kulturkritik zu formulieren. Später – oder auch gleichzeitig – gab es Psychiater und Psychiaterinnen, die die Psychoanalyse als Therapie schätzten, und einige von ihnen gründeten eine Gesellschaft und traten der Internationalen Vereinigung (IPA bei. Je später die Länder zur Psychoanalyse stiessen, desto abhängiger von der IPA verlief das Prozedere: Um zur Internationalen Vereinigung zu gehören, waren nun Shuttle-Analysen nachzuweisen, oder die Kandidaten und Kandidatinnen mussten jährlich für einige Monate in Paris, London oder New York ihre Lehranalysen absolviere. Das Oszillieren zwischen Bekanntem und der Faszination am Fremden war etwas, was mir schon aus meinem Studium der Ethnologie geläufig war. Versuchen wir, uns diesen Prozessen mit Freuds Überlegungen zum Unheimlichen zu nähern! Sie sind bekanntlich zu einem guten Teil von Ernst Jentsch inspiriert, der ein Nicht-Wissen um den Anderen zum Angelpunkt seiner Überlegungen machte. Angesichts der existentiellen Angst, die auch bei Heidegger das Unheimliche ausmacht, bewegen wir uns hier auf der Ebene der Spaltung. Dem entsprechend beinhaltet das Kennenlernen einer fremden Kultur zu Beginn oft eine Phase vorurteilsbehafteter Aneignung. Wir werden uns der Unterschiede gewahr, messen die fremden Umgangsformen an den unseren, und fällen ein Urteil: Wir idealisieren oder entwerten. Freud hat diesem Phänomen der Konfusion (die durch Spaltung gemeistert wird die Wiederkehr des verdrängten Triebes hinzugefügt. Wenn wir uns unseren Wünschen in Bezug auf den Anderen stellen, können wir auf einem ödipalen Niveau die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Fremden führen. Unser Interesse war, herauszufinden, ob die Psychoanalyse eine solche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Fremden erlaubt. Dabei sind indes auch Faktoren von Bedeutung, die mit Besonderheiten der Psychoanalyse als kulturellem und sozialem Ort einhergehen. Die Psychoanalyse überlebte ausserhalb der Universitäten, weil in ihr wissenschaftlicher Anspruch, Weltanschauung und therapeutische Praxis auf einmalige Art verknüpft sind. Die Verbreitung der Psychoanalyse geschah nach einem Modus, der normalerweise eher Sekten und Kirchen eigen ist. Es war aber die psychotherapeutische Praxis, und die Tatsache, dass diese in der Ärzteschaft Anklang fand, die den Psychoanalytikern und Psychoanalytikerinnen wirtschaftliches Überleben und der Theorie Verbreitung garantierten. Es ist anzunehmen, dass die ärztliche Psychoanalyse des öfteren eklektisch rezipiert wird. So wurden an einer 2014 durchgeführten Tagung zu Geographies of Psychoanalysis in Teheran drei Faktoren angeführt, die angeblich die Attraktivität der Psychoanalyse weltweit ausmachen: 1. Dass dem Patient zugehört wird, 2. dass das Trauma verstanden und 3. dass Träume ernst genommen werden. Dafür, dass die von Freud als Merkmal der psychoanalytischen Arbeit geforderte Übertragungsanalyse mit der Zeit zu ihrem Recht kommt, sorgen die psychoanalytischen Vereinigungen. Aber, so wurde ebenfalls an der oben erwähnten Tagung gefragt, zwingt nicht die Ausbildung zum Psychoanalytiker, indem sie ein fach den Standard-Parametern folgt, der Klientel in aussereuropäischen Ländern ein gewisses Mass an westlicher Kultur auf? Oder ist es so, dass der Psychoanalyse etwas immanent ist, was sie immer und überall mit der Vorstellung von Befreiung und Emanzipation in Verbindung bringt? Wir sind gespannt, welche der hier angedeuteten Gedanken Sie in Ihrer Lektüre der folgenden Artikel wiederfinden. Vera Saller

El proceso productivo, las nuevas formas de organización del trabajo y los requerimientos para competir en mercados internacionales han modificado sustancialmente los contextos laborales, volviéndolos más dinámicos y complejos. De igual manera, las exigencias de una sociedad cada vez más influenciada por el fenómeno de la globalización y la incursión de las nuevas tecnologías, han sido considerados como factores determinantes que de una manera u otra obligan a que la Universidad en el contexto general prepare a sus futuros profesionales para actuar en espacios diversos, delimitados por las necesidades que desde sus regiones se definan como prioritarias y que pudieren marcar una tendencia hacia un cambio de mentalidad con referencia al abordaje critico de sus problemáticas y, por ende, la contextualización adecuada de las soluciones que se propongan para hacer frente a las mismas.

En dichos trabajos, se analizan entre otros aspectos, los elementos que en materia de ciencia y tecnología se presentan en la actualidad como principales indicadores del desarrollo regional, así como también reflexiones asociadas con procesos de innovación, entendida esta como un eslabón esencial para el fomento de la competitividad, por lo que ésta deberá ser asumida como un proceso de abordaje social que propenda por el desarrollo y dinamismo de las organizaciones empresariales de la región, desde una perspectiva integradora. De igual forma se hace referencia a la aplicabilidad del enfoque sistémico como aporte metodológico al proceso de fortalecimiento profesional del ingeniero de sistemas a partir de la incorporación de categorías de formación que desde lo académico propenden por  consolidar su rol protagónico en el mercado laboral de la región caribe colombiana.

    Full Text Available Teachers have known for a long time that language learners differ and that a one-size-fits-all does not exist. Still in the days of structuralism, language and its users were seen as being a “thing” to be learned and taught, and since the goal of the learning was the same for all learners—proficiency in the language—the road to that goal should be uniform as well. Language was seen as a set of structures that had to be mastered, and this led to the audio-lingual method in which learners had to drill patterns and make no mistakes, since mistakes could be engrained as good as correct patterns. It was argued that the audiolingual method allowed for individual variation, since learners could choose their own goals and repeat parts of the curriculum on their own.

    Full Text Available We have projected this issue of volume 44 of the European Journal of Histochemistry, the first issue of the third millennium, to celebrate the achievements of the just-ended twentieth century, quite agreed upon as the century of histochemistry. The issue opens with a review by van der Ploeg entitled “Cytochemical nucleic acid research during the twentieth century”. This is the text of a lecture he presented in Camerino to the 1999 Congress of Histochemistry on the occasion of his receiving the 1st International Histochemical Award. The award, in memory of the founder of our Society, Maffo Vialli, was instituted for the express purpose of linking more closely our Society with other European histochemical centers, and more generally with their cell biology activities. Prof. van der Ploeg in his article traces a very analytical history of the last century’s research on nucleic acids and, through this, how our knowledge about cell biology and about how life is regulated, progressed. He begins right from the discovery at the end of the seventeenth century of a simple microscope, “insensitive to optical aberration”, which permitted Van Leeuwenhoek to observe unicellular organisms for the first time. From this follows, clearly and compellingly, the evolution of biological thought about the nucleus and cell life, closely correlating it with the development of the instruments of observation and measurement, and the techniques of imaging and quantification of nucleic acids.

    Full Text Available It is with great pleasure and honor that we celebrate the occasion of our inaugural issue of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology (NMNT, the new entirely open access journal in the field of "nano" scale materials and technology from InTech Open Access Publisher. Research at the nanometer scale represents a rapidly growing sub-field of materials science and technology, addressing novel size-dependent phenomena and concepts in a broad spectrum of materials, structures and devices, covering both basic sciences, synthesis/fabrication methodologies, and applications. During the last decade, nanoscience and nanotechnology have generated an unprecedented ferment in the scientific community; almost in parallel, the last few years have seen a dramatic explosion in the number of international science journals and magazines in the field of "nano" research.

    Full Text Available In this issue of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC, our guest author, Dr. Ned Strong, explains why Harvard University opened the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies in Santiago, Chile and how this center contributes positively to Harvard’s goal for international engagement. Strong illustrates how the center has established collaborations with universities and other organizations in the region (which includes Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, and Uruguay expanding academic and research opportunities for faculty and students through the establishment of programs and funding opportunities. Also, in this issue, we have the great pleasure of introducing research conducted by international faculty, university administrators, and others in the field of higher education. The common goal of all the research presented here is the improvement of the teaching-learning process and the enhancement of the student learning experience. Relevant topics in higher education such as program evaluation and development, curriculum assessment and improvement, among others, are discussed. Transformation of tourism and hospitality education means the application of new educational approaches. In the first article, Goh proposes an integration of two educational models with the objective of promoting scholarship among tourism and hospitality institutions in Australia. Through a description of the current model of teaching, and the introduction of an integrated alternative model in tourism and hospitality, the author provides tools and activities that can be incorporated by educators into their teaching protocols and the curriculum. Harris, Martin and Martin studied a topic of much importance for counselor education programs: how to improve the wellbeing of counseling students in training to enhance professional competence. The participants of the study rated themselves in areas related to psychological well-being, personal growth, self-acceptance, among others. The authors analyzed the results of the self- evaluations and provide recommendations on how educators and program administrators could evaluate and improve wellness in counseling students and the implications of psychological wellness in the professional practice of counselors. In a study aimed at determining readiness and potential for program accreditation, Loushine tested a curriculum assessment method to assess the curricula of two safety degree programs, specifically, if the components of the curricula align with the knowledge requirements for the professional practice of occupational safety. The author explains how the exercise of evaluating the curricula, including obtaining feedback from faculty and students, proved to be an effective tool to identify strengths and weaknesses in the programs and an outstanding resource for program improvement. Kam and Hoop evaluated an interaction-guided approach in science courses offered entirely online to elementary and middle school teachers in a Master’s degree program. The researchers studied how an inquiry-based, hands-on model encourages interaction among learners in science courses and how that ultimately results in collaborative learning in the online environment and development of tools and skills that could be useful for educators.

    Full Text Available In this edition of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC, our authors present research on quality in the context of higher education, using e-portfolios to encourage responsible feedback, and student gender bias in teaching evaluations. Authors Laura Schindler, Sarah Puls-Elvidge, Heather Welzant, and Linda Crawford present their literature review findings concerning quality and higher education. The authors focus on the difficulties of defining quality, revealing there seem to be four broad manners to conceptualize quality: purposeful, exceptional, transformative, and accountable. They also identified four distinct categories regarding quality indicators in higher education: administrative, student support, instructional, and student performance. One of the main difficulties identified in defining quality assurance is the regional context since, while in some areas quality assurance and accreditation are distinct terms, in other regions they are considered synonyms. After their review and analysis, the authors put forth recommendations for defining quality according to the existing state of quality assurance in higher education, depending on whether the institution has both a definition of quality and a set of quality indicators, either, or none. As technology enters more and more the classroom, new approaches to assess students and provide them with responsible feedback are needed. Educators Lucia Morales and Amparo Soler-Dominguez have found, through research and experience, that electronic portfolios are an effective way to provide students with responsible feedback and promote self-regulated learning, encouraging a student-centered approach. Morales and Soler-Dominguez argue that, given the positive manner in which eportfolios seem to promote two-way communication between teacher and student, they encourage responsible feedback in the classroom and self-regulated learning in postgraduate finance students. Finally, researchers Narissra Punyanunt-Carter and Stacy L. Carter present their findings regarding a preliminary study to assess whether there is or not a bias in teaching evaluations depending on the students’ gender. Since most research conducted on this particular topic was published during the 1980s and 1990s, Punyanunt-Carter and Carter based their research on a previous study published in 2000 in order to validate their findings. After analyzing their results, they found there seems to be a slight gender bias in teaching evaluations; however, they found no indications that its magnitude impacts the evaluations in a significant manner. This contrasts with current research that has found higher incidences different types of gender bias in academia, such as hiring practices, less women in STEM, and citation gaps. Since the gender bias in many of those other cases seems to come from peers and not students, there is a chance there is a generational gap at play. The authors recognize more studies are needed in this area, especially with larger student samples and also qualitative research tools, given that most research on this area comes from quantitative survey questions that might elude students’ perspectives on the matter.

    Full Text Available Prezado leitor, Anunciamos a edição do volume 17, número especial 1 de 2012 da Encontros Bibli. COGNIÇÃO E CIÊNCIA DA INFORMAÇÃO, buscando novas inter-relações. Este número especial da Revista Encontros Bibli apresenta artigos sobre o tema “A Cognição em Ciência da Informação: relação entre Psicologia Cognitiva, Cognição, Ciência da Informação. Paradigma Cognitivo na CI”. A Ciência da Informação tem incorporado novas abordagens que permitam o aprimoramento do diálogo entre os sujeitos buscando proporcionar ferramentas para uma maior interação entre as unidades de informação e a prática dos seus profissionais em permanente interação com os usuários. Nesse sentido, o objetivo é incentivar estudos que promovam conexões entre os sistemas de informação e sujeitos na busca da informação. Para efetuar essa função, a ciência da informação dialoga necessariamente com as áreas do conhecimento que visam a estudos relativos à comunicação humana de modo geral, especificamente organização, representação e uso da informação. A cognição humana em Ciência da Informação é especialmente importante haja vista ser o conhecimento a base em que se alicerçam aspetos fundamentais para a compreensão dos processos de organização, representação, gestão e uso da informação. Compreender o processamento humano em contextos que se realizam a organização, representação e uso da informação enriquecem e consolidam os demais estudos de Ciência da Informação, pois o ser humano em suas relações e inter-relações é uma fonte natural, fidedigna e preciosa de informações e conhecimentos. Nessa perspectiva, os editores da Revista Encontros Bibli pretendem, com este número especial, dar enfoque a produção científica que contemple a inter-relação entre Cognição e Ciência da Informação. Além disso, busca-se também incentivar um maior número de estudos que contemplem o conjunto de conhecimentos e seus avanços. Na presente edição temos nove artigos que expressam as contribuições de diversos autores apresentados por ordem alfabética de títulos. No artigo inicial “Ações para competências em informação no ciberespaço: reflexões sobre a contribuição da Metacognição”, Gustavo Henrique de Araujo Freire e Isa Maria Freire discutem a contribuição da metacognição às ações para competências em informação no ciberespaço. Enfatizam que a produção e o compartilhamento de informação e conhecimento em redes virtuais são vistas como possibilidades de criação de novos saberes. O segundo artigo intitulado “Aproximações entre o processo de adaptação de Piaget e os modos de conversão do conhecimento de Nonaka & Takeuchi” Marina Ferreira de Castro Wille, Regina Alves de Morais Marques, Helena de Fátima Nunes Silva, Tânia Stoltz e Verônica Branco elaboraram uma pesquisa bibliográfica e exploratória buscando relacionar estudos teóricos com contribuições da área educacional e da psicologia com o objetivo de contribuir para o enriquecimento da pesquisa organizacional. Em “Conceitos de informação e texto nas abordagens do ponto de vista cognitivo na Ciência da Informação e do processamento da informação na Psicologia Cognitiva – uma visão interdisciplinar”, Shirley Guimarães Pimenta contribui para a discussão da afinidade do ponto de vista cognitivo na Ciência da Informação e a abordagem do processamento da informação na Psicologia Cognitiva. Assinala a relevância do entendimento da interação entre informação, texto e indivíduo, porém são observadas lacunas quanto a tal realce. Utilizando-se de noções que são comuns a ambas as abordagens, propõe-se que algumas dessas lacunas possam ser preenchidas. Vera Regina Casari Boccato em seu artigo “O contexto sociocognitivo do indexador no processo de representação temática da informação” focaliza a interdisciplinaridade entre as vertentes cognitivas e a Ciência da Informação destacando a Psicologia Cognitiva, como campo científico colaborativo no delineamento do contexto sociocognitivo do indexador, visto como elemento norteador na representação temática adequada para a recuperação por assunto em catálogos online de áreas científicas especializadas. Em “Contribuição das ciências cognitivas e da ciência da informação para representação da informação: proposta para utilização na construção de biblioteca virtual temática em saúde” de Leandro Guedes da Fonseca, Iara Rodrigues de Amorim, Regina Goulart Lourenço e Jorge Calmon de Almeida Biolchini focalizam Ciências Cognitivas que podem aprimorar a representação da informação na construção de bibliotecas virtuais temáticas na área da Saúde. Destacam, também, características e funcionalidades desejáveis para uma biblioteca virtual temática e a importância do caráter interdisciplinar das áreas, com vistas ao aprimoramento de produtos e serviços de informação em benefício do usuário. Já em “A intervenção humana na qualificação de processos de data mining: estudo de caso em uma base de dados hipotética” os autores Juliano Tonizetti Brignoli, Egon Sewald Junior, Viviane Brandão Miguez, Neri dos Santos e Fernando Spanhol exploram as contribuições da intervenção de analistas humanos em processos de Data Mining. Enfatizam as propriedades da intelectualidade humana, como a inferência e a percepção que propiciam excelente complementação aos processos de análise de dados. Usando um estudo de caso baseado em simulação pretende-se validar proposições que asseguram o fato dos processos de Data Mining ser conduzidos e interpretados por analistas humanos, tornando-os assim, de característica dinâmica. O artigo “Ontologia: ambiguidade e precisão” de José Marcelo Schiessl e Marisa Bräscher enfatizam ambiguidade como um grande obstáculo para a recuperação de informação. Enfatizam as diversas pesquisas da Ciência da Informação buscando soluções para a ordenação de acervos visando estreitar os laços entre usuário e informação. A Web Semântica demanda a automação do ciclo informacional e abre espaço para pesquisa em ontologias. Logo, é importante revisitar abordagens variadas de tal forma que elas forneçam noções úteis aos pesquisadores da área sem, contudo, abandonar o rigor filosófico, nem o pragmatismo característico da computação. Aida Varela e Marilene Lobo Abreu Barbosa em seu artigo “Trajetórias cognitivas subjacentes ao processo de busca e uso da informação: fundamentos e transversalidades” analisam as possíveis trajetórias cognitivas decorrentes do processo de busca, recuperação e uso da informação, no âmbito da educação e na inter-relação desta com a ciência da informação, na perspectiva da construção do conhecimento. Demonstram também a aplicabilidade dos estudos cognitivos neste processo, abrangendo a relação dos sujeitos intervenientes, no sentido de ampliar a compreensão dos fenômenos informacionais, que ocorrem na dinâmica da transferência da informação, considerando que esta é um ato pedagógico. E em “O uso da informação no âmbito acadêmico: o comportamento informacional de pós-graduandos da área de Educação”, Helen de Castro Silva Casarin e Etiene Siqueira de Oliveira relatam parte de uma pesquisa mais ampla que teve como objetivo caracterizar o comportamento informacional dos pós-graduandos da área de Educação. Participaram da pesquisa nove alunos de mestrado e doutorado de um programa de pós-graduação em Educação de uma universidade pública paulista. Enfatizam que os principais resultados demonstraram que a identificação dos recursos informacionais ocorre, principalmente, por meio das referências bibliográficas de trabalhos da área; que há influência do orientador no comportamento de busca dos participantes. Como podemos observar ocorreu a confluência de pesquisas e exercícios teórico-conceituais sem perder de vista a triangulação entre a informação, sua organização e recuperação dirigida ao usuário. Coordenar este número especial foi um desafio que dividimos trocando ideias, incertezas e angústias por tratar de um objeto de estudo subjetivo como é a cognição. Agradecemos a todos os pesquisadores que submeteram seus trabalhos de pesquisa para análise bem como aos pesquisadores convidados que colocaram de lado seus tantos afazeres para atender a demanda de avaliar os artigos que chegaram até nós.

    Full Text Available Los estudios de la población siempre han despertado mucho interés general, debido a que retratan el estado actual de la población o un segmento de ella, en un lugar y momento determinado. Dicho retrato es de vital importancia para la toma de decisiones en políticas públicas, encaminadas a atacar problemas socioeconómicos, enmendar errores en programas, proponer nuevos esquemas de salud pública y desarrollo social. Todo ello con el fin de mejorar las condiciones de vida de las personas.Es por ello que Población y Salud en Mesoamerica tiene el agrado de presenta un nuevo número, en el cual nuevamente ofrecemos los resultados de las investigaciones más recientes en los estudios poblacionales. Esta vez se ha querido abarcar un área geográfica más amplia, incluyendo artículos relativos a Sudamérica, específicamente Bolivia, Argentina y Uruguay, además de un extraordinario análisis histórico sobre la transición demográfica en América Latina.Peláez, Torres, Acosta y Massobrio abren el número con un estudio sobre el vínculo existente entre el nivel de ingreso y el estado nutricional de los adultos mayores en las ciudades intermedias argentinas. Continuando con los estudios sobre adultos mayores, Rosero y Antich presentan un estudio longitudinal de mortalidad de adultos en Costa Rica, entre 1984 y 2007, donde se confirma la baja mortalidad de dicho segmento poblacional. Pagano, Rijo y Rossi por su parte nos ofrecen un enfoque económico de la relación fecundidad – oferta laboral femenina en Uruguay, estudio que demuestra la existencia de endogeneidad entre ambos conceptos. Pinto, Kincaid y Murillo, cierran la sección de artículos con una investigación sobre la problemática boliviana relativa a la relación entre la violencia doméstica y los servicios de salud reproductiva y planificación familiar, donde se concluye que existe una relación inversa entre ambos factores.Como documento histórico se ha publicado una ponencia de Héctor Perez-Brignoli, profesor emérito de la Universidad de Costa Rica, presentada en 1993 en la IV Conferencia Latinoamericana de Población. Esta ponencia es un minucioso análisis histórico de la evolución de la población latinoamericana, el cual analiza cinco factores determinantes: la disminución de la población amerindia durante el período de la conquista, la migración, el mestizaje, la frontera (geográfica y económica y la densidad poblacional.Esta publicación es para nuestros lectores y también se nutre de ellos. Por este motivo les animamos a leer los artículos y hacernos llegar sus comentarios y contribuciones.

    Full Text Available La Revista Población y Salud en Mesoamérica tiene el gusto de presentar el número 2 de su volumen 9. Los artículos científicos e informes técnicos tienen en común una concentración en el tema de la salud de adultos en diversos países de América Latina. Más específicamente, cuatro de los textos (Cruz Sánchez et al.; Acosta et al.; Mariño Lozano; y Aguilar Fernández y Carballo Alfaro son estudios que se refieren a factores de riesgo asociados con la morbilidad y mortalidad de nuestros países. El estudio cualitativo que analiza el sobrepeso y la obesidad en indígenas chontales en México (Cruz Sánchez et al. sugiere que hay patrones culturales tradicionales que pueden fomentar el aumento de peso, en forma totalmente independiente de los patrones culturales “occidentales” de países desarrollados descritos por la Teoría de la Transición Nutricional. Los altos niveles de hipercolesterolemia entre adultos mayores costarricenses también muestran la presencia de indicadores típicos de la Transición Nutricional en otro grupo poblacional del que se considera que sigue aún estilos de vida “tradicionales”. Sin embargo, Aguilar Fernández y Carballo Alfaro también evidencian cómo un sistema de salud de amplia cobertura en atención primaria puede tener un impacto positivo en el control de la hipercolesterolemia.El artículo sobre la asociación entre consumo de alcohol y la mortalidad en Argentina (Acosta et al. es también elocuente al estimar el impacto de comportamientos humanos en la salud, particularmente entre la población de adultos jóvenes. La estimación de 0.8 años de esperanza de vida perdidos AEVP entre los varones es una cifra considerablemente alta para un país latinoamericano que ha alcanzado niveles altos de sobrevivencia desde mediados del siglo XX. De acuerdo a la metodología seguida por los autores Acosta et al., las enfermedades circulatorias, las causas externas y la violencia, las enfermedades del aparato digestivo y (entre las mujeres las neoplasias son las causas que explican un mayor porcentaje de los AEVP. La violencia es también un componente importante en el informe técnico de Mariño Lozano. La comisión de actos violentos es relevante en la caracterización de la población privada de libertad del Centro Penal de Ciudad Barrios en San Miguel, El Salvador. En este texto, la violencia se puede entender como un determinante “distante” de exposición al riesgo del contagio por VIH entre la población privada de libertad porque la comisión de actos violentos determina que estas personas estén en el Centro Penal, sitio en el que se incrementa su exposición a comportamientos asociados con el VIH, dado el poco conocimiento que demuestran en cuanto a las causas del contagio. El informe técnico de Barrientos Esquivel y colegas alude a otra dimensión de la salud adulta: la salud reproductiva. El estudio comprende una encuesta sobre conocimientos acerca de la anticoncepción de emergencia. Los profesionales muestran un conocimiento alto sobre la existencia y efectos secundarios de las píldoras de anticoncepción de emergencia, pero un conocimiento bajo sobre su efectividad. Este informe técnico aporta información valiosa para entender el papel de la anticoncepción en la salud reproductiva de las mujeres costarricenses. Aunque el artículo de Batista Hernández y Antón Fleites no se limita a la mortalidad adulta, su enfoque en la morbilidad y mortalidad por cáncer de cérvix, próstata, mama, pulmón y colon indirectamente explora también la salud de los adultos. Los autores proponen utilizar la técnica estadística de detección de conglomerados espaciales y espacio-temporales (según el software SaTScan v7.0.1. Los autores profundizan en la importancia del diagnóstico oportuno para disminuir la mortalidad por tumores. Al proponer el uso del análisis de conglomerados espaciales para fines preventivos, Batista Hernández y Antón Fleites también destacan el importante papel de los servicios de salud (particularmente en la atención primaria y el diagnóstico en la promoción de la salud pública, tal y como lo muestran Aguilar Fernández y Carballo Alfaro en el caso de la hipercolesterolemia y Mariño Lozano en el caso del VIH. Cabe también mencionar otro punto en común de la mayoría de textos de este número: la relevancia de la dimensión de género. Los artículos exploran directa o indirectamente cómo el género se asocia con distintos comportamientos de riesgo. Los escritos de Mariño Lozano y de Acosta y colegas resaltan la alta prevalencia de la violencia y las causas externas entre los hombres. Por el contrario, Cruz Sánchez et al. señalan cómo las costumbres de los indígenas chontales propician que las mujeres tengan mayores prevalencias de sobrepeso y obesidad; Barrientos Esquivel et al. se centran en una dimensión importante de la salud femenina: la salud reproductiva; y Aguilar Fernández y Carballo Alfaro muestran cómo las mujeres adultas mayores costarricenses no sólo tienen mayor probabilidad de haber sido diagnosticadas con hipercolesterolemia que los hombres, sino también que las diagnosticadas tienen mayor probabilidad de no controlar su condición.Deseamos terminar esta presentación resaltando el artículo seleccionado para nuestra sección de Archivos Históricos. Presentamos un artículo de Carmen Miró, demógrafa latinoamericana reconocida internacionalmente. En su paso como directora del Centro Latinoamericano y del Caribe de Demografía CELADE, realizó grandes contribuciones tanto en docencia como en investigación. Decidimos escoger una ponencia que ella realizó en uno de los Seminarios de Demografía efectuados durante la segunda parte del siglo XX. Esta ponencia discute la importancia de las políticas de población en Costa Rica, un tema que se ha venido perdiendo en los estudios demográficos de la región centroamericana. Valga la recuperación de este artículo para motivar la discusión sobre políticas de población en una era en la que una gran mayoría de los países latinoamericanos están muy avanzados o han concluido su Transición Demográfica.

    Full Text Available Los cambios que ha experimentado el sistema internacional en los últimos años han marcado un gran giro hacia un fenómeno que ha ido ocupando buena parte de la agenda de seguridad; nos referimos a las amenazas emergentes o nuevas amenazas. Baste recordar lo establecido en la Declaración sobre Seguridad en las Américas del año 2003 donde, entre otros puntos, se señala que las amenazas, preocupaciones y otros desafíos a la seguridad en el Hemisferio son de naturaleza diversa y alcance multidimensional y el concepto y los enfoques tradicionales deben ampliarse para abarcar amenazas nuevas y no tradicionales, que incluyen aspectos políticos, económicos, sociales, de salud y ambientales. Más adelante pormenoriza que en relación a la seguridad de los Estados del Hemisferio, esta se ve afectada en diferente forma por amenazas tradicionales y por los siguientes nuevos retos, preocupaciones y otros desafíos de diversa naturaleza: el terrorismo, la delincuencia organizada transnacional, el problema mundial de las drogas, la corrupción, el lavado de activos, el tráfico ilícito de armas y las conexiones entre ellos; la pobreza extrema y la exclusión social de amplios sectores de la población, que también afectan a la estabilidad y la democracia; los desastres naturales y los de origen humano, el VIH/SIDA y otras enfermedades y riesgos a la salud, como también el deterioro al medio ambiente; finalmente la trata de personas y los ataques a la seguridad cibernética. En este marco referencial, esta nueva edición de la revista entrega visiones que representan de una u otra forma la existencia de estos fenómenos y la forma en que ellos afectan el normal desarrollo de los Estados y, de paso, su influencia en el Sistema Internacional.

    Full Text Available No contexto da 62a Reunião da Sociedade Brasileira para o Progresso da Ciência (SBPC, importante evento de difusão científica que este ano se realiza em Natal, com o tema Ciências do Mar: herança para o futuro, é com muito prazer que lançamos o segundo volume anual da Revista Holos. Esta edição eletrônica reúne 12 artigos, que analisam, cada um em sua área específica e com método próprio, fenômenos antigos e atuais em vista de um futuro sustentável para as próximas gerações. O primeiro artigo consiste em estudo de caso relacionado à recuperação de antigas edificações, envolvendo a restauração da Casa do Estudante de Natal e, mais detidamente, do prédio da então Escola de Artes e Ofícios de Natal, onde funcionou esta Instituição em seus primórdios. Este último, após a recuperação, abriga atualmente o Campus Avançado da Cidade Alta do IFRN. Resultado de um trabalho de cooperação entre pesquisadores do Instituto e a empresa que realizou as obras, o artigo trata sobre o emprego de materiais e técnicas, tradicionais e modernas, de intervenção para a recuperação da capacidade portante dos componentes estruturais das obras e para a recuperação dos aspectos funcionais dos sistemas construtivos das edificações e de sua integridade estrutural. Já o segundo artigo, que se apóia na contribuição de pesquisadores e bolsistas de iniciação científica do IFRN e da UFRN, enfoca as pastilhas de Peltier, apresentando aplicações didáticas para produzir efeito refrigerador ou aquecedor. A terceira contribuição, de um pesquisador do IFAL, descreve os caminhos percorridos e os desafios da comunidade de pescadores de Lagoa de Mundaú, em Maceió/AL, para a alfabetização científica. O artigo seguinte decorre do trabalho conjunto de pesquisadores do IFRN e da UFPE, que analisam a depuração de chorume nas Estações de Tratamento de Percolados (ETPs de aterros sanitários. É apresentada uma metodologia alternativa (georremediação aditivada, GAD para melhorar substancialmente a degradação da matéria orgânica recalcitrante contida no chorume, associada a uma redução significativa nas concentrações de alguns metais pesados do efluente. O quinto trabalho, elaborado por pesquisadores da UFOPA, discorre sobre os Cepropiais nativos formados pela espécie Cecropia palmata, dentre outras, que, acumulando fósforo (P em tecidos foliares e cascas, podem prestar um serviço ecológico em paisagens amazônicas com deficiência desse elemento químico. De autoria de pesquisadores do IFRN, o artigo de número seis trata do diagnóstico da qualidade sanitária de plantas medicinais comercializadas em Currais Novos/RN. Os resultados mostram contaminações por grupos, contagens de bactérias do grupo dos coliformes totais, e os níveis de contaminação registrados apontam o material analisado como potencialmente danoso à saúde humana. O sétimo artigo, por sua vez, é fruto de uma cooperação entre pesquisadores do IFRN e da UFPE, que apresentam resultados de estudos no controle ambiental de perfuração de poços de petróleo no Campo de Porto Carão, Carnaubais/RN. O trabalho analisa as limitações do Relatório de Controle Ambiental. Voltado para o desenvolvimento sustentável do turismo, o oitavo artigo discute o tema e verifica que a atividade turística de Natal se constitui em alternativa viável de desenvolvimento, observando, no entanto, que o novo poder local deve desempenhar o seu papel de fomentador e protagonista do desenvolvimento socioeconômico. O artigo seguinte traz uma discussão sobre os resíduos eletrônicos de computadores nas Instituições de ensino superior em Natal/RN, observando que sua gestão é incipiente. Os autores são oriundos da UFRN, da UnP e da UNESP. Apresentado por pesquisadores da UFRN, o décimo artigo examinam conceitos e aspectos da Gerência do Conhecimento que possam contribuir no desenvolvimento de ferramentas mais adaptadas para os desafios atuais da educação tecnológica. Já o décimo primeiro artigo, escrito por pesquisadores da área de gestão do IFRN, investiga as possibilidades da consolidação de novas formas de gestão pública, baseadas no princípio da governabilidade e nos novos mecanismos de interação entre a sociedade e o poder público. Por fim, o último artigo discute a atividade mandioqueira na formação do territorial do agreste do Estado do Rio Grande. A importante contribuição resulta de pesquisas de professores do IFRN e da UFRN. Com espírito dos artífices de saberes de ciências e conhecedor das necessidades de percorrer caminhos de e para o conhecimento nos quatro cantos, via pulsos elétricos, nas direções dos computadores de lares, bibliotecas ou de longínquas lan houses, convidamos à leitura e à difusão de mais uma edição da Holos!

A través de este método, investigadores en la Universidad de Oxford lograron estimar que un 8,2% (7,1%–9,2% del genoma humano es funcional (Rands et al., 2014. Esto contrasta con lo estimado por Encode, un consorcio de varias universidades y grupos de investigacion que en 2012 publicó en las revistas Science y Nature, resultados que permitían concluir que el 80% del genoma tiene funciones bioquímicas.

    Full Text Available Community Psychiatry in India is an upcoming branch in the field ofpsychiatry as well as Community Medicine. The need for this discipline has dawned in a big way recently on account of increasing deviant human behaviour resulting from the exuberant mental stress and strain of rapid industrialization and urbanization.The earlier concept ofpsychiatric illnesses and other psychosomatic conditions have changed a great deal over the years. The term lumatic or insane is no more considered a sophisticated terminology for describing a person who is mentally ill. The euphemism which is in vogue nowadays ensures that even those who are mentally sick deserve a place in society and have the fundamental right to live a life of dignity and respect. Psychiatry today is perhaps more concerned with the modern life style resulting in the so called mental wear and tear, rather than exclusive organic lesions causing a pathological mental state. The boundries of psychiatry are no more confined or restricted to marked mental derangement manifesting as Manic Depresive Psychosis, Schizophrenia, Paranoia and other serious mental illnesses, but also envisages situations heralding the onset of an alteration in normal human behaviour. The spectrum of mental illnesses may range from mild infrequent anxiety and simple depression to very serious psychosis. The pendulum can swing either way resulting at times in creating paradoxical situations, so much so that the manifestation of such a disorder can be diagnosed only by a qualified psychiatrist. It will be very much relevant to mention at this juncture that what may appear as a simple case of social withdrawl or decreased performance at school or work, could be due to major psychosis, which later on may turn out to be extremely detrimental for the patient as well as his associates.The changing social, economic and cultural pattern, so much prevalent in the country today may be at times responsible for various mental disorders, which earlier did not demand so much of medical attention. Psychiatric consultations are becoming increas­ingly more frequent in the industrialised countries of the world. It seems that in not too distant future it should become an important component ofthe health care delivery system in nearly all developing countries ofthe world, including India.During yesteryears, there was a social stigma attached to people suffer ing from mental disorders. Persons once declared insane, were either admitted in lunatic asylums or ostracized. However, when one goes down the memory lane, he will appreciate that graually the awareness created in the modern society has changed the perception of psychiatric

    Full Text Available The current issue of INTERthesis presents a variety of peculiar articles, reviews and translations on Sociology, Psychology and Anthropology, but with frequent incidences – and this is the point that calls our attention the most – in two aspects that one can infer from reading between the lines, when not clearly mentioned: the political repercussions of theoretical issues or basic science, and the review of methodology and concepts. The problem of the poverty scandal in a globalized civilization, technically able to solve all humanity’s sufferings, does not have its genesis in the political will alone, or in the administrative corruption, but, according to Diamantino Machado, also in the way in which the social sciences have defined poverty: deviant behavior of those who, supposedly able to determine how to eliminate poverty, fail to determine the theoretical tools and, in practice, build the reproduction of the evil instead. Ana Maria Fernandez writes the book review of Conflitos Ambientais no Brasil (Environmental Conflicts in Brazil by Henri Ascelrad. The author highlights the challenge of finding instruments for analysis in order to interpret the complexity of the social, ecological and political processes, which bring Nature to the innermost parts of the social conflicts. Failure on the conceptualization of movement, always badly explained, is what Giorgio Agamben, in Selvino Assmann’s translation, says has led people against politicization; a dominion of the people by the parties corresponds to the apparent democracy of the concept. It’s similar to Gilberto Ferreira da Silva’s and Rejane Penna’s criticisms towards the studies about people with African background in the graduate studies in Brazil: instead of contributing to the overcoming of unfair situations motivated by racism, the researches ostentatiously display a very little consistent methodology, mainly in spoken interviews, harming this way the results and the positive actions. The theme is back in Sílvia Maria de Araújo’s article on collective actions, where the author highlights the mistakes in the elaboration of the category of analysis: the phenomenon in itself is evident and almost omnipresent, but the concepts involved in its studies must be distinctly expressed. As Vera Viviane Schmidt studies the organized society, she makes a short historical review of the public health politics in Brazil since 1980, confronting them with the general guidelines of the National State politics. She then analyses the concept of civil society and its practical concretizing, and afterwards studies the ways of political interventions in the organized society, then the social movements, without criticizing, as we often see in many other people’s articles, the conceptualization and methodology, but rereading the pertinent theories applying all these analyses to the health politics, and showing, inversely, how successful practices can interfere in the discussions of the paradigm. In this set of texts about the relationship between methodology of sciences and the political action, one can notice another set that has a bigger incidence in other basic areas, illuminating, this way, the two kinds of observations and research results. Steven Pinker discusses an issue that worries the anthropologists a lot and that has recently received new guidelines of solutions: Does the determination of the human behavior receive more influences from nature (genetics or from culture (the artificial society? And again we face the “accusation”: methodology and wrong concepts in the basic sciences have hazardous consequences in the practical action – including family raising. Rafael Raffaelli deepens the man’s acting issue as he analyses the changes of the psychoanalytical conceptions and their approach to phenomenology: more than the method, or the theory of the method, the author enters the epistemology and the reviews of theories about the human being. This way, our texts have gone from the collective to the individual action, and have come closer to the idea of body and life, which Mirko Drazen Grmek focuses under a contrasting perspective, as he discusses death, in Selvino Assmann’s translation. It is the concept of death that, involving problems of medical definition, leads to critical practical procedures, such as the determination of the state of death made by medical consensus, but without any definition of the patient’s state. This clash forces us to discuss life and how the notion of death has implications in the medical decisions in acute cases. The author ends up recurring to metaphysics to clarify the biologist’s reflections, and this is where we realize that in the conceptual and methodological discussions of this journal, Philosophy somehow has always been present.
