    h-Index has been proposed as a useful bibliometric measure for quantifying research productivity. In this current study, we analyzed h-indices of editorial board members of Radiology journals and tested the hypothesis that editorial board members of Radiology journals with higher impact factors (IF) have higher h-indices. Sixty-two Radiology journals with IF >1 were included. Editorial board members were identified using the journals' websites. Editors' affiliations and research fields of interest were used to distinguish investigators with similar names. Bibliometric indices including number of publications, total citations, citations per publication, and h-index for each editorial board member were obtained using the Web of Science database. Chi-square or Wilcoxon rank-sum tests were used to test for differences in bibliographic measures or demographics between groups. Among the editorial boards of 62 journals, the median [interquartile range] board h-index was 26 [18, 31] and had 36 [17, 56] members. The median journal IF was 2.27 [1.74, 3.31]. We identified a total of 2204 distinct editors; they had a median [interquartile range] h-index of 23 [13, 35], 120 [58, 215] total publications, 1938 [682, 4634] total citations, and an average of 15.7 [9.96, 24.8] citations per publication. The boards of journals with IF above the median had significantly higher h-indices (P = .002), total publications (P = .01), and total and average citations (both any [P = .003, .009] and nonself-citations [P = .001, .002]) than journals below the median. Our data indicate that board members of Radiology journals with higher IF have greater h-indices compared to lower IF journals. Copyright © 2017 The Association of University Radiologists.

    h-index is useful for quantifying scholarly activity in medicine, but this statistic has not been extensively applied as a measure of productivity in anaesthesia. We conducted a bibliometric analysis of h-index in editorial board members and tested the hypothesis that editorial board members of anaesthesia journals with higher impact factors (IFs) have higher h-indices. Ten of 19 journals with 2009 IF>1 were randomly chosen from Journal Citation Reports(®). Board members were identified using each journal's website. Publications, citations, citations per publication, and h-index for each member were obtained using Scopus(®). Four hundred and twenty-three individuals filled 481 anaesthesia editorial board positions. The median h-index of all editorial board members was 14. Board members published 75 papers (median) with 1006 citations and 13 citations per publication. Members serving on journals with IF greater than median had significantly (Pcitations, and citations per publication than those at journals with IF less than median. A significant correlation between the median h-index of a journal's editorial board members and its IF (h-index=3.01×IF+6.85; r( 2)=0.452; P=0.033) was observed for the 10 journals examined. Board members of subspeciality-specific journals had bibliometric indices that were less than those at general journals. The h-index was greater in individuals serving more than one journal. European editorial board members had higher h-index values than their American colleagues. The results suggest that editorial board members of anaesthesia journals with higher IFs have higher h-indices.

    Scientists who are members of an editorial board have been accused of preferentially publishing their scientific work in the journal where they serve as editor. Reputation and academic standing do depend on an uninterrupted flow of published scientific work and the question does arise as to whether publication mainly occurs in the self-edited journal. This investigation was designed to determine whether editorial board members of five urological journals were more likely to publish their research reports in their own rather than in other journals. A retrospective analysis was conducted for all original reports published from 2001-2010 by 65 editorial board members nominated to the boards of five impact leading urologic journals in 2006. Publications before editorial board membership, 2001-2005, and publications within the period of time as an editorial board member, 2006-2010, were identified. The impact factors of the journals were also recorded over the time period 2001-2010 to see whether a change in impact factor correlated with publication locality. In the five journals as a whole, scientific work was not preferentially published in the journal in which the scientists served as editor. However, significant heterogeneity among the journals was evident. One journal showed a significant increase in the amount of published papers in the 'own' journal after assumption of editorship, three journals showed no change and one journal showed a highly significant decrease in publishing in the 'own' journal after assumption of editorship.

    To quantitate financial conflicts of interest (FCOIs) among radiation oncology peer-reviewers, specifically editorial board members of the 3 American Society for Radiation Oncology journals. The public Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Open Payments database delineates payments in 3 categories (general payments, research funding, and company ownership). After excluding non-US and non-MDs, names of board members were searched. Values of each FCOI were extracted for 2013 to 2015 and compiled. Of 85 board members, 65 (76%) received any form of payment during the overall period. The majority of delivered payments were general payments: 59 (69%) received at least 1 general payment during these 3 years. In each year, 9 board members (11%) received research funding, and 3 board members (4%) reported company ownership. Over the studied period, all board members received a sum total of $5,387,985; this was composed of $665,801 (12%) in general payments, $3,758,968 (70%) in research funding, and $963,216 (18%) in company ownership. The mean general payment and research funding amounts (all members) were $2,621 and $14,741, respectively. Median (interquartile range) general payments and research funding only in board members receiving payments were $419 ($91-$5072) and $56,250 ($13,345-$200,000), respectively. When assessing general payments according to amount, the vast majority of editorial board members received lower-quantity or no such payments, along with a smaller proportion that received higher-volume payments. The most frequent sources of general payments were Varian, Elekta, and Bristol-Myers Squibb. Merck and Varian were the most frequent funding sources for research payments. In this population, the majority of FCOIs were general payments, but research funding comprised the highest monetary sums. Large-volume FCOIs do not apply to the vast majority of editorial board members, implying that the maintained integrity of academic peer-review is likely not

    Full Text Available The success of The Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology over the past 16 years is largely attributable to the continuing and substantial support from a dedicated and enthusiastic Editorial Board. 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.

    Membership on a professional medical society or journal editorial board is a marker of influence and prestige for those in academic medicine. This study presents the first comprehensive quantification of women on these boards and the implications for women in medicine. The numbers of women and men on professional society and journal editorial boards across 28 specialties (March 2004) were counted. The number of women holding multiple roles on these boards and the number of women holding top leadership positions on these boards were counted, and these proportions were compared. Three-thousand-four-hundred-seventy-three individuals on 39 professional medical society boards and 54 journal editorial boards were included. Eighty-three percent (2,884) of board members were male. Men occupied > 80% of top leadership positions on these boards. Thirty-five of the 589 women in the study held multiple roles. Anesthesiology (p women on boards in comparison to the total women in the specialty. Internal medicine, plastic surgery, cardiology and general surgery had nearly equivalent proportions; in otolaryngology and family medicine, female board members slightly exceeded the proportion of women in the field. Women's representation on society and editorial boards does not always reflect their presence in medical specialties, and it is critically lacking in certain specialties. Efforts should be made to attain parity of women leaders on these boards. Further efforts should be made to eliminate barriers to women's leadership in medicine.

    Although there has been a continuous increase in the number of women working in the field of medicine, women rarely reach the highest academic positions as full professors or editorial board members. We aimed to determine the proportion of women on the editorial boards of top-ranked medical journals in different medical specialties. We analyzed the gender of editorial board members of 60 top-ranked journals of 12 Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge Journal Citation Reports categories. A total of 4175 editors were included in our analysis. Only 15.9% (10 of 63) editors-in-chief were female. In the 5 categories, critical care, anesthesiology, orthopedics, ophthalmology and radiology, nuclear medicine and medical imaging, currently not 1 woman holds the position of editor-in-chief. Less than one fifth (17.5%, 719 of 4112) of all editorial board members were women. There were significant differences among the evaluated categories, with the highest percentage of women in the category of medicine, general and internal and the lowest in the category critical care, followed by orthopedics. In every category, the proportion of women as editorial board members was substantially lower than that of men. Women are underrepresented on the editorial boards of major medical journals, although there is a great variability among the journals and categories analyzed. If more women are nominated to serve on editorial boards, they will be a visible sign of continuing progress and serve as important role models for young women contemplating a career in academic medicine.

    Japan ranks extremely low in global ranking of gender equality. It is not easy for female doctors to acquire leadership positions in member societies of the Japanese Association of Medical Science (JAMS). Very few women are included on editorial boards of English medical journals in Japan. Furthermore, until last year, there had been no female editors in English language journals of surgical societies. The qualifications and criteria for selecting editorial board members of medical journals should be clarified. Medical journals in Japan would gain diversity by including women on editorial boards in the same proportion as women membership in the corresponding medical societies.

    With many new members joining the CG&A editorial board over the past year, and with a renewed commitment to not only document the state of the art in computer graphics research and applications but to anticipate and where possible foster future areas of scientific discourse and industrial practice, we asked editorial and advisory council members about where they see their fields of expertise going. The answers compiled here aren’t meant to be all encompassing or deterministic when it comes to the opportunities computer graphics and interactive visualization hold for the future. Instead, we aim to accomplish two things: give a more in-depth introduction of members of the editorial board to the CG&A readership and encourage cross-disciplinary discourse toward approaching, complementing, or disputing the visions laid out in this compilation.

    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

    Neurosciences continues to be the leading journal for Neurosciences in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. In January 2007, Neurosciences was indexed by Thomson ISI in Science Citation Index Expanded online at ISI Web of KnowledgeSM and Neurosciences Citation Index. Since then a significantly increased volume of scientific articles continues to be submitted to the journal by enthusiastic authors, a fact that enriches the scientific contents of the journal. In 2008, we had a total number of website hits of 495,625 with a monthly average of 41,000. We received a total of 155 manuscripts, with a monthly average of 13 and an average rejection rate of 29%. From these, we published a total of 100 articles, totaling 523 pages for the entire volume. Forty-nine percent of these were original articles. Fifty-eight percent of published articles were from the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR), with 30% from KSA, 5% from the Gulf, and 23% from other Arab and EMR countries. The remaining 42% of published articles we received from Canada, India, Japan, Malaysia, and Turkey. The average time from received to acceptance of original articles was 4 months and 4.9 months for acceptance to publication. Reasons for rejection included unrelated topics, poor contents, or duplicate publication. In addition to our 4 regular issues in 2008, we published a supplement of abstracts presented at the 16th Saudi Neuroscience Symposium. We would like to thank the Editorial and Advisory Board Members for their significant contribution to maintain the standards of Neuroscience and looking forward to their important continued role in achieving our goals for 2009. In 2009, we aim to increase the number of issues to meet the increased load of manuscripts. Our objective is to enrich the scientific Neuroscience material presented by the journal with important topic reviews and regular neuroscience quizzes to achieve PubMed indexing. We will continue to promote our new web-based manuscript submission

    The Journal of Magnetic Resonance has played a prominent role in encouraging synergies between physical insights and biophysical applications. In this Virtual Special Issue (VSI), JMR's associate editor Dr. Robert (Rob) Tycko highlights the state-of-the-art in this area, by presenting a compilation of JMR articles published over recent years that demonstrate the value of indirect detection methods in biosolids NMR. This is a topic that Rob knows only too well, having been one of its founders and main expositors. This thematic VSI also gives a perfect "excuse" for thanking Rob for the seven years that he has served as our card-carrying solids NMR associate editor. His work for the Journal was, like all other NMR endeavors in which Rob has embarked, characterized by utmost excellence. Over the years he contributed numerous ideas and initiatives, while providing editorial judgment in the handling of over 320 individual papers. For all this we in the NMR community wish to extend Rob our sincere thanks; to offer him our best wishes for a continued successful career and happiness in all walks of life, and to express our hope that we can keep on counting on his wisdom and advice as member of our Editorial Board. I would also like to use this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to Chad Rienstra, who will be replacing Rob in his role of associate editor.

  2. Board effectiveness: Investigating payment asymmetry between board members and shareholders

    Full Text Available Board members may well be responsible for dissension between themselves and shareholders since they are simultaneously the setters and receivers of both board remuneration and dividends. They may act out of their own personal interests at the expense of external shareholders. We investigate the impact of ownership structure, board structure and control deviation on payment asymmetry, where excessively high remuneration is paid to board members but considerably lower dividends are distributed to shareholders. We find strong evidence confirming that the smaller the shareholdings of board members and outside blockholders are, the more asymmetric the payments are. With controlling family members on the board and a higher percentage of seats held by independent board members, there is a slight reduction in the likelihood and severity of payment asymmetry. In addition, it is abundantly clear that the larger the board seat-control deviation is, the greater is the likelihood and severity of payment asymmetry. While prior research has primarily focused on board-manager agency issues, the board-shareholder perspective could be even more important in that it is the board that is the most directly delegated agent of shareholders, not the managers

  3. Gender Representation on Journal Editorial Boards in the Mathematical Sciences

    2016-01-01

    We study gender representation on the editorial boards of 435 journals in the mathematical sciences. Women are known to comprise approximately 15% of tenure-stream faculty positions in doctoral-granting mathematical sciences departments in the United States. Compared to this group, we find that 8.9% of the 13067 editorships in our study are held by women. We describe group variations within the editorships by identifying specific journals, subfields, publishers, and countries that significantly exceed or fall short of this average. To enable our study, we develop a semi-automated method for inferring gender that has an estimated accuracy of 97.5%. Our findings provide the first measure of gender distribution on editorial boards in the mathematical sciences, offer insights that suggest future studies in the mathematical sciences, and introduce new methods that enable large-scale studies of gender distribution in other fields.

    The purpose of this study was to quantify the representation of women among the authors and editorial board members of prominent general orthopedics journals and to determine how these proportions have changed over time. Gender was determined for the authors of all original research studies, case reports, and review articles published in 2 prominent general orthopedics journals in 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2007. Gender was also determined for each individual serving on the editorial boards of these journals during these years. Between 1970 and 2007, the representation of women increased from 0.8% to 6.5% among first authors (P<.001), from 0.0% to 4.3% among last authors (P = .015), and from 1.6% to 5.4% among editorial board members (P = .16). However, the rates of increase observed in orthopedics were lower than those observed in other fields (P<.05). Between 1970 and 2007, female representation increased significantly among physicians publishing in 2 prominent general orthopedics journals, but these rates of increase were lower than those observed in other fields of medicine.

On this occasion, I would like to congratulate editorial board, reviewers, authors, readers, and subscribers. IJEMM will be published quarterly. In the first year 2017, we planned for four issues where the first issue includes 5 articles in addition to this editorial. The initiative of this journal was taken in the 2015 and then with several meetings and discussions, finally platform was formed in July 2016 to nurture continuously growing in interest in the area of materials and manufacturing engineering. It was felt that the increasing number of researchers and academicians in the materials and manufacturing engineering community needs a dedicated journal for the publication of their research outputs. We have formed a strong editorial board for timely publication with high quality consistent review and proofreading.

    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. Heinrich, Effects of particle distribution on mechanical properties of magneto-sensitive elastomers in a homogeneous magnetic field, Condens. Matter Phys., 2012, 15, 33601.

    fortunate to have Pam Ryan, from the University of Alberta, as our Production Editor. In addition to the mammoth task of creating an open access, peer reviewed electronic journal, we also were faced with the tasks of familiarizing ourselves with new software and creating a visual appearance. 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. Finally, I would like to draw attention to two teams that are essential to the success of EBLIP: the Evidence Summaries Team and the Editorial Advisors (peer reviewers. The diversity, specialization and professionalism of the teams’ membership allow us to explore all avenues of EBL and its practice and utility in all environments. Members from our teams range from journal editors to university professors to school and systems librarians. Their contributions, not only to EBLIP but also to the body of EBL knowledge, are substantial. As readers, I hope that you will find the information in EBLIP useful, interesting, provocative, and applicable to your work. I hope that you will be able to use the information we present to you to aid in your decision making regarding policies, collections, procedures, marketing, etc., and I particularly look forward to hearing how you may have used this information in your practice (whether it worked or not!.

    -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. Third, review articles which not only review a particular book, but cover its history, influences, similar texts and a theoretical critique of content (approx 2-3000 words.

This is largely due to the excellent submissions received and the outstanding work of the editorial board and reviewers. Although the Journal is just beginning its second year, papers from the past and current issue have been quoted in the media, on the Internet, and in college classrooms. A simple Google Internet search of the phrase “financial therapy” leads those navigating the World Wide Web directly to the Journal. In conjunction with New Prairie Press, papers, reviews, and profiles are accessible to anyone in the world via the open access journal network, which makes it highly likely that authors will be referenced in additional manuscripts. It is definitely an exciting time to be involved in the development of financial therapy as a new field of study through the Journal.

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

    Full Text Available Despite women earning similar numbers of graduate degrees as men in STEM disciplines, they are underrepresented in upper level positions in both academia and industry. Editorial board memberships are an important example of such positions; membership is both a professional honor in recognition of achievement and an opportunity for professional advancement. We surveyed 10 highly regarded journals in environmental biology, natural resource management, and plant sciences to quantify the number of women on their editorial boards and in positions of editorial leadership (i.e., Associate Editors and Editors-in-Chief from 1985 to 2013. We found that during this time period only 16% of subject editors were women, with more pronounced disparities in positions of editorial leadership. Although the trend was towards improvement over time, there was surprising variation between journals, including those with similar disciplinary foci. While demographic changes in academia may reduce these disparities over time, we argue journals should proactively strive for gender parity on their editorial boards. This will both increase the number of women afforded the opportunities and benefits that accompany board membership and increase the number of role models and potential mentors for early-career scientists and students.

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.

    Full Text Available Dear IEJEE reader, You are holding the third issue of volume one of International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education (IEJEE, one of the youngest and most exciting electronic journals focusing on the contemporary issues in elementary education. Approximately one tenth of today’s world population has one or another way relationship with elementary education. 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. I believe that IEJEE is fulfilling an important mission with that regard. I owe many thanks to all the researchers who have made their contributions to the previous issues and this third issue of IEJEE. Publishing an international scientific journal is a demanding job.

Prof. Grandori became the first Director of the journal, followed by his wife Luigia Grandori (1956-1957, Minos Martelli (1958-1985 and Luciano Süss (1986-2011. In 2012, the Editor, the Department of Agri-food Systems Protection (DiPSA - University of Milan, come to the decision to move from the paper version to the online open access version of JEAR, with the aim to reach all researchers in the field with a restyled editorial, and with Giuseppe Carlo Lozzia as Editor in Chief (2012-2014. Thanks to the contributions of prestigious scientists and young researchers from all over the world, the Journal published many papers, which were downloaded in numerous countries across the world. Recently, the new Editor, the Department of Food Environmental and Nutritional Sciences - University of Milan, named me as Editor-in-Chief and I happily accepted the invitation with the objective to give new energy to the JEAR through the publication of more and more research papers of recognized scientific quality. The Journal will maintain its actual structure with four subject areas steered by internationally recognized Section Editors, who are now supported by a new and larger Editorial Board. The JEAR publishes papers on systematics, geographical speciation and evolution, aquatic and terrestrial entomology, ecological system dynamics, phenology and modelling for integrated pest control, agricultural and stored product pests, urban veterinary and forensic entomology, plant insect interaction and ecosystems, biological control and agro-ecology, and all other subjects related to the four subject areas.

    gravitational radiation by laser interferometry was not much more than a dream. Similarly, neither the power of modern desktop computers nor the wealth of present cosmological data was widely anticipated. The subjects of 'classical and quantum gravity' were very different in 1984 from what they are in 2004, but the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity has kept up with the changes and developments (and, in some cases, revolutions) that have occurred in these areas. Much of this openness towards new developments in the field can be attributed to the distinguished Editorial Board of Classical and Quantum Gravity, comprising a very broad mix of leading researchers, many of whom are working at the cutting edge of research in their sub-fields. My goal during the next five years is to maintain the open and forward-looking approach that has been characteristic of Classical and Quantum Gravity, while at the same time ensuring that the highest intellectual standards are applied to all work published by the journal.

    The scholars comprising journal editorial boards play a critical role in defining the trajectory of knowledge in their field. Nevertheless, studies of editorial board composition remain rare, especially those focusing on journals publishing research in the increasingly globalized fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Using metrics for quantifying the diversity of ecological communities, we quantified international representation on the 1985-2014 editorial boards of 24 environmental biology journals. Over the course of 3 decades, there were 3,827 unique scientists based in 70 countries who served as editors. The size of the editorial community increased over time-the number of editors serving in 2014 was 4-fold greater than in 1985-as did the number of countries in which editors were based. Nevertheless, editors based outside the "Global North" (the group of economically developed countries with high per capita gross domestic product [GDP] that collectively concentrate most global wealth) were extremely rare. Furthermore, 67.18% of all editors were based in either the United States or the United Kingdom. Consequently, geographic diversity-already low in 1985-remained unchanged through 2014. We argue that this limited geographic diversity can detrimentally affect the creativity of scholarship published in journals, the progress and direction of research, the composition of the STEM workforce, and the development of science in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and much of Asia (i.e., the "Global South").

    authors who are writing on issues that are important and relevant to the higher education landscape.   We have also seen some great improvements in our metrics.  For example, due to some changes to our website in 2015, we saw a significant increase in visits to the HLRC site and more citations. We have averaged about a 53% acceptance rate, which reflects our adherence to quality standards for publication. We also added more content to the website, including information on copyright, self-archiving policies, conflicts of interest, and publication ethics. The new section on author guidelines provides much clearer information that will help with manuscript preparation and submission. In addition, we are registered with a number of indexation services, such as Google Scholar, and our articles are included in ProQuest Education Journals, Questia, and OJS/PKP Library network. We submitted an application for indexation of HLRC, and we should hear back on this initiative sometime later in 2016.   I look forward to an exciting 2016.  We have two special issues planned. The June 2016 special issue on Higher Education, Community Engagement, and the Global Public Good will commemorate the 5-year anniversary of HLRC. In December, there will be a special issue dedicated to Quality Assurance in Higher Education.  We continue to also seek the best research that you are doing for publication, as well as book reviews and other kinds of scholarly contributions. I have been working with the editorial staff to reorganize the editorial board to include associate editors; we are also going to be seeking a broad set of peer reviewers from countries around the world upon whom we can call to review manuscripts. It is my goal to help broaden visibility and readership of HLRC and to make it one of the journals of choice for submissions regarding higher education.  I invite you to visit the site at www.hlrcjournal.com and browse the titles of previously published manuscripts.

  20. [The role of university hospital executive board members].

    2009-09-01

    Demographic changes and medical progress in combination with vastly altered regulatory and economic environments have forced considerable change in the structure of German university hospitals in recent years. These changes have affected medical care as well as research and medical school training. To allow for more flexibility and a higher level of reactivity to the changing environment German university hospitals were transferred from state agencies to independent corporate structures. All but one remains wholly owned by the respective state governments. The governing structure of these independent medical hospitals consists of an executive board, generally made up of a medical director, a financial director, a director for nursing, and the dean of the medical faculty. In most hospitals, the medical director serves as chief executive officer. The regulations governing the composition and responsibility of the members of the executive board differ from state to state. These differences do affect to some degree the interactive effectiveness of the members of the executive boards. Modalities that stress the overall responsibility for all board members seem to work better than those that define clear portfolio limits. Even more than organizational and regulatory differences, the effectiveness of the work of the executive boards is influenced by the personality of the board members themselves. Success appears to be a clear function of the willingness of all members to work together.

    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.

    Full Text Available Communication between management and employees is very important in organizations. However, communication problems might be more felt in any media organization as a whole and in the local media staff in particular. It’s obvious that news workers have everyday communicative interaction with different newsmakers. The article deals with the study and analysis of the communicative interaction between the local editorial creative staff members. Internal and external organizational understanding data are considered. It is determined that the level of organizational communication development influences the local editorial success and employees’ performance. Mutual understanding as the basic criterion of effective communication has several forms. The subject of our study is organizational understanding, that is, a special type of editorial staff relationship which is limited by the boundaries of the organization and is essential for its successful functioning and development. The analysis of empirical data allowed to identify the main problematic aspects and to work out the recommendations for vertical and horizontal communication development.

En primer lugar, mantener dos ediciones semestrales con media docena de artículos de investigación seleccionados anónimamente por evaluadores externos, expresa una relevante producción científica destinada a reducir el impacto ambiental de las edificaciones, como también un gran esfuerzo editorial, del equipo académico y técnico de la Universidad del Bío-Bío. Adicionalmente, la revista ha obtenido indexaciones de relevancia internacional que, como sabemos, expresan su calidad editorial y científica, validando así el trabajo de los investigadores y editores. Estas voluntades son especialmente valiosas si recordamos que se trata de la primera publicación científica latinoamericana dedicada a la sustentabilidad del ambiente construido, cuyo espíritu es respaldar y divulgar el desarrollo académico en arquitectura, construcción, diseño y  urbanismo frente a los desafíos ecológicos.

    This issue marks the end of an era for The Astrophysical Journal and for astronomical publishing. Helmut Abt is retiring as Editor-in-Chief after serving for 28 years, a period that saw enormous growth in the Journal and its transformation to the forefront of electronic scientific publishing. In February the ApJ office celebrated the receipt of manuscript number 40,000 under Helmut's tenure, a milestone that testifies to his impact on all of our careers. Although the names at the top of the masthead are changing, the rest of the ApJ team remains nearly unchanged, so the editorial transition should be barely noticeable. Much of the editorial work of the Journal will continue to be performed by our capable staff of Scientific Editors. I am also very fortunate to inherit Helmut's outstanding support staff in Tucson, ably headed by Janice Sexton. Our publications staff in Chicago, led by Julie Steffen, and our electronic publications staff, led by Evan Owens, are unmatched in their dedication and energy, and I have already begun working with them on further improvements to the Journal. And Helmut Abt will continue to serve the Journal over the coming months, overseeing the manuscripts that are still under review and editing the special centennial issue that will appear at the end of this year. In the coming months we will introduce several new features, most of them initiated under Helmut Abt's leadership. These will include an upgraded ApJ homepage, web tools for authors and referees, updated documentation and author instructions, and an attractive new version of the on-line journal itself. Over the longer term we are developing plans for streamlining the publication timescale and for expanding our capabilities for publishing and archiving electronic data. However my overriding priority, always, will be to uphold the Journal's reputation for scientific accuracy, impact, and integrity.

    This editorial introduces a journal devoted to examination of the implications of cultural issues on gender and development work. The secondary status of women is one of the few universals in the world, with biology used as an excuse (yet the only constraints placed upon a woman by biology are when she is pregnant or breast feeding). Constraints differ among societies, and cultural practices which appeal to tradition reinforce the power of men. Patriarchal societies foster the notion of an ideal woman to insure the paternity of children and preserve the families. Because women have primary responsibility for children, they are also perceived as the guardians of the very culture which reduces their status. Rape and domestic violence are used to enforce women's conformity to a traditional role. Violence against women is also used as a weapon of warfare while religious fundamentalists manipulate religious texts to insure women's subordination. Participation in development efforts, however, can allow women to question their marginalization and to become positive role models for other women. The arts and the media can also be used to challenge the status quo. The views of women from southern nations have also been marginalized by the north, and people with formal education wield more power than those with experience but no qualifications. Multicultural ideals require development agencies to listen to historically ignored voices, to make a longterm commitment to cultural change, and to employ local people. Charges of cultural imperialism can be refuted if the aspirations of southern women are included on the development agenda.

    This editorial introduces an issue of a journal which contains articles on the themes of 1) macroeconomic policy and gender relations and 2) income generation projects and empowerment. The opening paper dispels the myth that economic policies are gender-neutral. Another article uses the effects of structural adjustment policies in the Caribbean to illustrate how such policies increase women's burdens because of cuts in social services and pressures on women to provide cheap labor to create export goods. A third article depicts the adverse consequences of a macroeconomic policy in India which favors exports over domestic production. This theme is developed in a paper which challenges the notion that export-oriented development strategies provide a "trickle down" benefit to the poor. Specific reversals in development advances in Tanzania are linked to the adjustment experience, and the policy of debt repayment at all costs in the Philippines is shown to have an adverse effect on the poor. Other papers from Albania, India, Tanzania, Chile, and Bangladesh highlight how market-oriented reforms have created conditions which are detrimental to women's health. Further research reveals that the touted "feminization of employment" has actually turned out to be a "feminization of unemployment" as gender discrimination in the labor market continues. Papers on income-generating projects spotlight what has been learned about developing a successful income-generation project which recognizes women's "reproductive labor" time demands. Other articles explore barriers faced by women to access to finance and entrepreneurship. By looking beyond economic jargon and false assumptions, the authors of these papers explore how gender relationships are shaped by economic policies and affect policy outcomes and how women are organizing to improve their lives and the health of their communities.

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL Este segundo volume da HOLOS é publicado em um momento dos mais difíceis em que passa a sociedade brasileira, fruto do processo de impedimento da presidente da república em tramitação no parlamento. Neste contexto, as políticas públicas na área de ciência e tecnologia, ora em curso, estão no limbo, e é preciso vigilância da comunidade acadêmica para a manutenção do ciclo de ouro vivido nos últimos anos e das garantias da estabilidade institucional e liberdades democráticas. No Google Scholar é observada uma tendência no aumento do índice h5 para 8 e mediana h5 para 3, o que mostra um importante crescimento do indicador em relação ao apresentado no ano passado (h5 = 5 e mediana h5 = 5. 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. É importante informar que os principais periódicos do mundo condicionam os autores realizarem esse registro para a submissão de artigos, se configurando uma tendência da utilização deste registro para o pesquisador no mundo e suas instituições. Neste número são publicadas 33 contribuições, sendo que 29 do Brasil, uma de Cuba, duas da Espanha, uma de Portugal com cooperação com o Brasil e uma da Rússia. Observa-se que 15%  dos artigos publicados são oriundos do exterior. O fluxo de artigos provenientes do exterior observa uma elevação da intensidade de submissões neste último ano. Os esforços para ampliar o número de artigos em língua estrangeira são refletidos pelos 10 artigos, sendo oito em língua inglesa e duas em língua espanhola, os quais representam 30% dos artigos

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. En Colombia, se reconoce el Publíndex (Sistema Nacional de Indexación de Publicaciones Especializadas de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación, CT+I, y el Índice Bibliográfico Nacional como el sistema más importante en tal sentido.

    Full Text Available Scientific journals play an important role in academic information exchange and their assessment is of interest to science authorities, editors and researchers. The assessment of journals is of particular interest to South African authorities as the country's universities are partially funded according to the number of publications they produce in accredited journals, such as the Thomson Reuters indexed journals. Scientific publishing in South Africa has experienced a revolution during the last 10 years. Our objective here is to report the performance of the country's journals during 2009 and 2010 according to a number of metrics (i.e. impact factors, Eigenfactors and the international character of editorial boards; to identify and compare the impact of the South African journals that have been recently added to the Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports; and to elaborate on issues related to science policy.

    Full Text Available In this editorial the journal Uniara, we're bringing some reflections on the issues involved in the consolidation of a multidisciplinary character of publication. 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.

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.

    A gender perspective requires examining how gender roles affect the ways in which various family members can participate in the wider community, economy, and state. It is important to recognize the disparity between perceptions about the family as a benign institution and the reality that many families consist of a paradoxical blend of love, support, friction, domination, and even cruelty. Definitions of family reveal the social implications of the belief that families are centered on children and the need of patriarchs to control female sexuality. Notions about households are generally more concrete, and many households include people who are not family members and are not nuclear in nature. Many development initiatives have floundered because of the assumption that households distribute resources according to individual needs. Instead, household members use bargaining power to get their way, and women are generally in weaker bargaining positions than men. Linking men solely with production and women solely with reproduction ignores the realities of most women's lives, although the unpaid reproductive work women do influences their access to paid employment. In order to assure family stability and to find ways to provide social welfare, women's workload in the family must be reduced. Family life must not be hidden in a "private" sphere where injustices and violence are ignored. Unconscious biases against families of various types must be rooted out and overcome, and policy-makers must recognize that families evolve to meet changing needs. Finally, the notion of the nuclear family as the ideal family type must be challenged.

    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

    Full Text Available Este volume é publicado no início de maio, em meio a uma paralização pela redução da jornada de trabalho no Instituto Federal do Rio Grande do Norte. Neste contexto de aprendizado, em que o Periódico deve pensar para além do presente, a editoria encontra uma janela para, de forma permanente, disponibilizar esta edição para a comunidade. O esforço para ampliar a presença do Periódico no país e no exterior é apresentado através das figuras 1 e 2, que mostram as origens dos artigos por região e por estado, que ora publicamos.   Figuras disponíveis no arquivo em pdf.   Observa-se nas figuras acima que os artigos estão disseminados em doze estados brasileiros e um na França, destacando-se a região nordeste, que concentra 50% dos artigos e os estados do Rio Grande do Norte e do Rio Grande do Sul, respectivamente com 31% e 22% da origem dos artigos publicados. 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. É importante destacar que esses artigos foram produzidos por vinte instituições, entre elas, institutos federais, empresa de pesquisa, universidades federais, estaduais, católicas, privadas e uma universidade francesa. Essa diversidade demostra o caráter plural da origem autoral, fator de sustentabilidade científica para o periódico e que representam forte relação interdisciplinar. Informo à comunidade e ao mesmo tempo desejo as boas-vindas à professora María Dolores Sánchez-Fernández da Universidade da Coruña (Espanha que passa a integrar o conselho editorial e terá a missão de ampliar a visibilidade da HOLOS em solo ibérico. Nestes tempos de turbulência político-econômica, a escolha pela integralidade da publicação online em 2004 e a migração para plataforma de software livre são elementos sustentáveis para a

    Full Text Available Editorial Em 2011, a Revista HOLOS completa sete anos de sua transformação em periódico eletrônico, sob nossa editoria. 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. Constam também três trabalhos na área de educação: o primeiro discorre sobre o ensino de física e os livros didáticos na área de acústica; o segundo discute a história e a filosofia da ciência no ensino médio e a visão de futuros professores; e o terceiro mostra

Through its annual conference and its journal the Africa Platform offers a forum in which African academics and northern scholars working on Africa can forge new and often interdisciplinary collaboration. Most of this research on Africa is highly relevant to the development of African societies, as became clear at the last symposium of 1 This editorial was written just a few days before Nelson Mandela passed away on 5 December 2013. We have lost a great man. Hamba Kahle Madiba. [5 ] the Africa Platform, entitled ‘Africa: (post-development?’ This special issue of Afrika Focus contains a number of articles that were presented at that symposium, which took place on 7 December 2012. In his article ‘Performance, poverty and urban development: Kigali’s motari and the special city’ Rollason describes the con ict between motorcycle taxis in Kigali and the city authorities. Urban development of Kigali is at stake here as these motari do not seem to match the image of the city the government wants to present. The article by Debusscher ‘Gender equality in European Union development policy: incorporating women’s voices or con rming hierarchies?’ is highly critical of the gender mainstreaming approach of the EU in its development aid towards sub-Saharan Africa. The EU seems to be more con- cerned with reaching its policy goals rather than challenging existing power structures in Africa. Both of these articles raise awareness on the level of a particular development-re- lated issue, and they have the potential to lead to concrete recommendations for national or EU development policies. The three remaining articles in this issue do not t in with the development-topic. Mulamba’s article ‘Luba folklore and women’s ethno-gendered discourse of wifehood in

    practice mainly "modern” activities in the countryside. 4 Anna Polášková’s article offers an insight into the environmental literacy and attitudes of young technically-oriented Czech university students at a faculty of pharmacy in preparation for non-teaching and non-ecological professional careers. The author believes that environmental literacy and consciousness among university students in technical fields is very important, since it is usually among middle managers and executives with technical education that environmentally friendly policies and strategies more or less begin. She found that positive relationships to environmental protection and education in this faculty prevailed; however, the level of environmental knowledge gained from their secondary education seemed to be low in most cases. 5 Information texts: Andrew Barton and Jan Vávra report on the proceedings of an academic conference held in Prague in April 2013 called Our Common Present which focused on the array of current challenges facing Central Europe.

    Just before the Easter holidays, in the face of serious difficulties in the discussion regarding the pensions for new staff recruited from January 2012, the Staff Association had planned to hold public information meetings and a referendum next week (9–14 May). Since then, through several contacts with Management and some Member States, new elements, mostly technical, have arisen. As a result of these the Executive Committee has decided to postpone these meetings (and the referendum).

    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.

    Full Text Available Dear Internext readers and collaborators, We are pleased to release the second issue of volume 12 of Internext, the first in which the magazine is rated as B2 by, Qualis Periodicos. In this issue, we have six articles that all carry, I believe, important theoretical and managerial contributions, as well as suggestions of new research questions. I highlight some of these contributions this editorial. In "THE PROFILE OF THE UNIVERSITY MANAGER OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN BRAZIL", Fernanda Geremias Leal, Rafaela Ribeiro Céspedes and Luciane Stallivieri outline the profile of the international cooperation managers of the Brazilian federal public universities. From the data analysis of 46 of these institutions, they identify the positive aspects and the problems of the positioning of the international relations department in the university structure. It also analyses the personal experience of managers with activities of an international nature. Given the relevance and timeliness of the theme of internationalization of universities in the exchange of students and professors among others, and given the lack of information about these activities in Brazilian universities, this is a timely and essential contribution for those who research university management in general and its internationalization in particular. In POLITICAL PERSPECTIVES OF RELATIONSHIP NETWORKS TO INTERNATIONALIZATION OF FIRMS IN AN EMERGING COUNTRY, Jefferson Marlon Monticelli, Silvio Luís de Vasconcellos e Ivan Lapuente Garrido analyze, using the political perspective of neo-institutionalism, how institutions, especially government, influence the internationalization of Brazilian Wine sector They contribute to the understanding of how the political relationship takes within the economic sectors and between government and business sectors occur.

Nesse contexto, a Revista, que se consolida como um importante veículo de disseminação do conhecimento em diversas áreas do saber científico e tecnológico, surge com um novo layout. Nessa disposição atual, que busca adequar-se ao formato dos periódicos internacionais e aos novos ambientes virtuais, a apresentação dos autores está resumida aos seus nomes e instituições, constando, ainda, o histórico da submissão do artigo. Outro aspecto interessante é a visualização do acesso à revista nos mais variados lugares, mostrando que as publicações eletrônicas são contemporâneas de um novo tempo, com o qual o IFRN se mantém conectado, numa posição de vanguarda. Este volume é composto de treze artigos com contribuições das várias engenharias: mecânica, civil, química, sanitária, agrícola, biomédica e de computação, além das áreas de gestão ambiental e de educação. O primeiro artigo trata dos combustíveis verdes no Brasil, com uma avaliação da lubricidade do biodiesel B5 e dos óleos de mamona e de coco.

    beneficio del saber. El conocimiento que se difunde en las revistas científicas ha sido un negocio para las empresas encargadas de valorar cuál es el conocimiento que se debe distribuir; ello termina por convertirse en un proceso de apropiación de la información científica por parte de las empresas transnacionales de la información, que excluye de su apropiación incluso a quien lo produce.Para las transnacionales de la ciencia, el reto del saber es su transformación en mercancía. El control del conocimiento es un importantísimo mecanismo de poder. Hoy en día, ese control está sustentado en una defensa mundial de los derechos de propiedad intelectual y los derechos de patentes para beneficio exclusivo de las grandes multinacionales. Derechos que son definidos como universales y absolutos, y que se manifiestan en muchas de las privatizaciones del conocimiento científico.La gran mayoría de las revistas científicas del mundo forman parte de este mecanismo perversode apropiación intelectual. De ello no escapa el conocimiento producido por gran parte de las universidades del mundo. En una relación bastante perniciosa para la sociedad, los investigadores venden el conocimiento para beneficio individual y no colectivo.Afortunadamente, sitios públicos y gratuitos en la Internet como DIALNET y REDALYC tienenla función y el compromiso de contribuir a la difusión de la actividad editorial científica que se produce, al permitir alojar las publicaciones sin costo alguno, lo cual incide en un aumento significativode la circulación del conocimiento científico.Esperamos que cada vez sean más las fuentes que se comprometen con esta labor de difundir el conocimiento, para hacer de la ciencia un bien público. Sólo falta que ese proceso global reconozcaque en la ciencia, el conocimiento es un bien que debe extenderse sin limitaciones artificiales, porque ello no disminuye el conocimiento de los demás, muy por el contrario, lo incrementa.

    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.

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. Last, but not least, this issue also brings the book review of ‘the Ritual Use of the Plants of Power’ by Labate and Goulart, Editora Mercado das Letras, São Paulo, 2005. 518p.

Para ello, los valores organizacionales deberían estar alineados con lasnecesidades de cambio que tienen que ver con los valores de las instituciones.Esos son algunos de los retos que hoy enfrentamos y que son tratados en este nueva entrega de Enl@ce, de la mano de expertos que reconocen la necesidad de confrontar sus experienciasy esfuerzos académicos, a través de la publicación de interpretaciones y resultados de análisiscientíficos.Vale la pena recordar que las modificaciones del pensamiento, expresadas en situacionesespaciales y temporales que se presentan en forma de conocimiento, responden a la necesidad detrascender a la tradicional fragmentación de la realidad del conocimiento científico referencial einstrumental, que inspira a buena parte de los trabajos que se publican en revistas limitadas porlos espacios “naturales” de la especialización. Es así como Enl@ce brinda una ventana para elencuentro del amplio conocimiento de la tecnología y la información, que permite confrontar lascontradicciones propias de la mundialización y discusión del conocimiento. Basta revisar el índiceacumulado de este número, para constatar que Enl@ce es una tribuna abierta a la discusión delpensamiento crítico en materia de tecnología, información y conocimiento.Deseo agradecer a los autores que durante este año 2006 confiaron en Enl@ce, porque se sumaron con verdadero entusiasmo a este proyecto editorial, garantizando, una vez más, la calidaddel contenido de esta publicación.

    Full Text Available The agreement of member states on the text of the New Urban Agenda, accepted at Habitat III (United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, in October 2016 was a major achievement. This is part of a wider recognition in international development agendas of the role of cities and human settlements in meeting the major 21st century challenges – tacking climate change, achieving social justice, or ending poverty – notably through inclusion of Goal 11 in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, agreed by the United Nations in October 2015. Yet although local government is at the forefront of changes that will transform the lives of citizens, the New Urban Agenda sees local governments as implementers rather than innovators, and local government will remain on the margins until a stronger mechanism for its inclusion in United Nations debates is found.

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.

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.

Interestingly, the results have shown that the Swedish booksellers do not feel their business is threatened by e-books.

    An unacceptable diktat: we must react nowAt the end of 2009, CERN Council created an internal Advisory Group to define the framework and extent of the measures necessary to restore full funding to the CERN Pension Fund. A first set of measures was approved by CERN Council in December 2010 (CERN/2947). It concerned the members (current active staff) and beneficiaries (retired staff) of the Fund. Since the beginning of 2011, discussions have been focused, in particular, on the conditions offered to our future colleagues who will be recruited from 1st January 2012 onwards. A new pension plan for staff recruited from the beginning of 2012 Legal constraints have limited the possibility to modify the conditions for active staff (apart from the contribution rate) and for current beneficiaries (apart from non-indexation up to 8%). However, the Advisory Group has imposed framework conditions for future staff which equate to a major deterioration compared to the existing scheme (see our public meetings in November 201...

Following a sustained information campaign over the past few weeks, we have all had the opportunity to say what we feel about the proposals that the Management will present to the Member States, for decision mid-December.

We do not think so, and certainly not the 1435 colleagues who exercised their right to vote, i.e. 63% of all registered electors. A pleasing participation, and the results can only but encourage us to forge ahead.

    2010 five-yearly review: what should be retained from the comparisons? In conformity with Annex A1 of the Staff Rules and Regulations, the five-yearly review must include basic salaries and may include any other financial or social conditions. In 2010, besides salaries, only one optional subject is included: health insurance. It was already on the menu of the five-yearly review in 2005, but at that time CERN Council decided that large-scale measures could wait. Any similarity with the pensions file would be fortuitous.   To prepare the decisions to be taken at the end of 2010 by CERN Council, on the proposal of the Director-General, the first discussions on relevant comparisons have just taken place at the Tripartite Employment Conditions Forum (TREF) between the Member States, Management and staff representatives.

    Scientific and technical results that we can be proud of On Monday 4 July the Director-General gave his Mid-Term address to staff covering the first 912 days of him and his Team in charge of CERN. Scientific success was there with an LHC going from record to record, antihydrogen atoms on the front page of newspapers around the world, and a rich and varied complementary scientific programme. CERN has proved once again that it is a centre of scientific and technological excellence. The Organization also plays a leading role in the education and training of students and young researchers and is a pioneer in open access for the dissemination of knowledge throughout the world. We at CERN can be proud of our participation in this great adventure.

    Dear Colleagues, Our public meetings (slides and video) which took place from 21st to 28th March 2011 have now ended. Overall several hundred of you attended and we sincerely thank you. This high attendance underlines the interest you show in the subjects discussed. The subject of the Pension Fund remains the most important one, with the second set of measures which aim to restore full funding. These measures concern the pension plan for staff recruited from 1st January 2012, as well as the transition measures for active staff who retire on or after the same date. At these public meetings the Staff Association announced its intention to organize a referendum at the beginning of April concerning this second stage.

    Dear Colleagues, In five weeks, with a spring in our step and a feeling of accomplishment, we will leave for a two-week break. Time for end-of-year celebrations, leisure activities, and a well-deserved rest. And we will have certainly deserved it considering that the results obtained from the LHC go far beyond any we could have expected, as the Management said itself. We can be proud that everything is going well. But is it? Almost, because a few days before we leave on holiday CERN Council will make decisions relating to the five-yearly review – 5YR (health insurance and salaries) and our pensions. For the time being, fortunately the TREF meeting on 4th November concluded with a positive consensus on all the subjects examined. The Member States supported the Management’s proposals which were previously discussed at great length in the SCC. But these are still declarations of intent, not decisions, so we remain on our guard. The next meeting of TREF is on 25th November. In the mean...

    Thursday, 29th October, the Staff Council examined the Management proposals, results of the 2015 Five-Yearly Review. In a Resolution, the Staff Council wrote that it considered that the proposed "package" of measures was not balanced enough and made some additional requests, especially in the field of new career system. At the meeting of the Standing Concertation Committee (SCC) of Monday, 9th November, representatives of the Management and the Staff Association reviewed in detail the document with the Management proposals. This document will be presented to the Member states at the next meeting of TREF on 26th November. Based on the concerns expressed in our Resolution of 29th October, six points, where consensus could not be reached at the meeting, remained pending at the end of the discussion in the SCC. It was decided that these six points would be submitted to the Director-General for arbitration, after a discussion in the Staff Council. Thus, on Thursday, 12th November, the Staff Coun...

    Dear colleagues, As one would expect, everything is accelerating in our Laboratory, whether it be particles or the train of concertation meetings. Let us hope nevertheless that some light will come from this speed. Yet, let’s not complain; where there is discussion there is hope. Better a Management that concerts with the Staff Association on major subjects than to revive past horrors. It is also a question of respect. Moreover, this can be useful, as you will read below. The Staff Association has long been a source of proposals. By showing its necessity, we obtained the Long-Term Care system; the same with the Saved Leave schemes (RSL, which later became SLS). These are just two examples of social innovation. Today we are considering the question of our pensions. The situation is serious. The Fund is in a bad state and this must be remedied. This is the time to be very careful about the proposals submitted to us. For this the Staff Association can count on its own experts, members of its Pensio...

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.

A definição de critérios mais altos na seleção de avaliadores, a introdução de um formulário de avaliação dos artigos para guiar os pareceristas sobre os aspectos que devem ser avaliados e a manutenção da periodicidade na publicação das edições levaram à incorporação da revista em vários indexadores nacionais e internacionais de prestígio. A presença nesses indexadores e a utilização de outras plataformas virtuais, como o facebook, no qual o periódico recentemente atingiu a marca de mil curtidores, por sua vez, ampliou a divulgação das atividades editoriais da revista como as chamadas de artigos e expandiu largamente o número de acessos, que ultrapassam uma centena de milhares de acessos por ano. Os avanços nessa edição ficam por conta da incorporação da revista a mais um indexador importante, o Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ. Além disso, houve o acréscimo de importantes ferramentas internas que melhoram os processos de edição do periódico, tal como o desenvolvimento [ainda em construção] de um manual de “passo a passo” indicando cada etapa de edição da Em Tese, bem como, um guia de orientações de posturas éticas para nortear e sistematizar o trabalho dos membros do corpo editorial. Iniciativas como essas, visam conferir maior profissionalismo à revista e, consequentemente, maior segurança a seus colaboradores e leitores.

    The Tenth International Conference on Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS-10) was held from September 5-10 at the University of California, Berkeley campus. The conference attracted 305 attendees from 26 countries who gave 144 platform presentations and presented a total of 170 posters. The conference opened with a special tribute to the late Roy Middleton, which was followed by a companion session on 'ion sourcery'. A plenary talk by Wally Broecker on his '53 years in the Radiocarbon Trenches', provided thought-provoking challenges to commonly accepted paradigms. A workshop on issues in the estimation of isotopic ratios and evaluations of activities from AMS measurements preceded the conference and a workshop on AMS in low-dose bioscience concluded it. Conference attendees had ample opportunity to sample local sights and mid-week excursions to the Napa Valley wine region and the Monterey Bay Aquarium were well attended. The social highlight of the conference was a dinner cruise on San Francisco Bay aboard the San Francisco Belle, which toured the bay on a clear evening and afforded spectacular views of the city front as well as the Bay and Golden Gate bridges. The proceedings of AMS-10 contain 140 peer-reviewed papers that detail recent developments in AMS technology and a broad range of scientific applications. The editors worked to ensure that these contributions represent original research that has not been published elsewhere. We are grateful to the many outside reviewers who provided thoughtful consideration and suggestions in their reviews of these manuscripts. The staff of the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory wishes to thank the many members of the international AMS community in allowing us to organize this conference. We are particularly grateful to the University of California's Toxic Substances Research Program, which provided key assistance with conference administration

    Letter to the Editor A Letter to the Editor should present new results, likely to stimulate further research and be of interest to the wider atomic, molecular and optical physics community. Above all the results should be sufficiently new and important to merit rapid publication as a Letter, which implies accelerated refereeing procedures. This should be made clear either in the body of the Letter, if appropriate, or with a supporting cover letter from the author on submission to the journal. Letters will have an upper limit of eight journal pages and, as an additional quality check, two referees instead of one will be used to review them. The Board will be asked to make a final publication decision in the event of two conflicting reports. With these measures in place it is hoped that the important new results will receive the exposure they deserve as a Letter. If you have any questions or comments on this or anything relating to J.

    Full Text Available This issue of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC features research and teaching proposals from both sides of the Atlantic. In a globalized and interconnected world, cooperation among researchers and higher education professionals is paramount. Equally important, as Steven Maranville argues in this issue’s featured essay, is recognizing being a scholar and researcher means being first and foremost a thinker. Higher education institutions are sanctuaries of knowledge, and faculty members are key in promoting understanding and the free flow of ideas among teachers and students. In the information Age, online tools have proven vital precisely in promoting knowledge and cooperation across oceans and frontiers. As more and more higher education institutions use the Internet in order to reach a wider student audience, the new challenges of online learning require new tools for faculty communication. As such, Eric Nordin and Peter John Anthony conducted research related to the development of a support website for online faculty. Such measures seem to be necessary, as they may lead to improvements in the quality of online teaching and learning. There is another research piece included in this issue that deals as well with improving the quality of teaching and learning. Luis Alberto D’Elia and Diane Wishart have investigated on both sides of the Atlantic, in Canada and Spain, how proper teacher training at the college level may lead to better youth engagement in science classes. Faculty in Education departments must become aware of the needs and challenges youth face in science learning in order to better train the teachers that will serve them. This is why more higher education professionals should engage in high school programs that prepare students for college. Oftentimes, previous educational experiences do not properly prepare students for college life, resulting in withdrawals, longer times to degree completion, or even unwillingness

    Full Text Available The first 2007 issue of the INTERthesis journal evidences the heterogeneity of themes, problems and focuses peculiar to the area of Human Sciences. However, and in spite of this heterogeneity, all the texts here have something in common: the proposed approaches hold an interdisciplinary character. If this Journal has the goal of constructing a space of critical discussion, in which several subjects and kinds of knowledge can keep a conversation, based on the present polemic in the area of Human Sciences, we can say that this issue has fully reached this aim. The Journal presents at first a never-before published article by Edoardo Boncinelli, “Need and Contingency of the Human Nature” translated into Portuguese by Professor Selvino Assmann. Boncinelli is at present a member of the European Organization of Molecular Biology, and President of the Italian Society of Biophysics and Molecular Biology. This researcher of the biological sciences, professor at the University of Milan, approaches a very present theme. Boncinelli takes over the challenge of showing the difficulties inherent to the reductive explanations on human behavior. He shows the range and limitations of these discourses that, starting from explanations that are closer or further from the genetical determinism, cerebral neurophysiology or evolutionist biology, try to find determinist explanations to what is peculiar to the human condition, our capacity to make choices, and thehistorical, and consequently social and cultural determination of these choices. The second article resumes a classical and fundamental discussion, however a little forgotten in our delayed modernity. Selvino Assmann, professor of the Department of Philosophy at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC , and Nei Antonio Nunes, professor of Political Philosophy and Ethics at Unisul, analyze the role of the intellectuals as a criticism of the present. The article discusses the “re-reading” that

    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.

    Mooney, Mark P; Cooper, Gregory M; Marazita, Mary L

    2014-05-01

    To celebrate the 50th year of the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal we look back to where we started in 1964 and where we are now, and we speculate about directions for the future in a "Then and Now" editorial series. This editorial examines changing trends and perspectives in anatomical, basic science, and genetic studies published in this 50-year interval. In volume 1 there were 45 total papers, seven (16%) of which were peer-reviewed basic science and genetic articles published: four in anatomy, three in craniofacial biology, and none in genetics. In contrast, in volume 50, of 113 articles there were 47 (42%) peer-reviewed basic science and genetic articles published: 30 in anatomy, five in craniofacial biology, and 12 in genetics. Topical analysis of published manuscripts then and now reveal that similar topics in anatomy and craniofacial biology are still being researched today (e.g., phenotypic variability, optimal timing of surgery, presurgical orthopedics, bone grafting); whereas, most of the more recent papers use advanced technology to address old questions. In contrast, genetic publications have clearly increased in frequency during the last 50 years, which parallels advances in the field during this time. However, all of us have noticed that the more "cutting-edge" papers in these areas are not being submitted for publication to the journal, but instead to discipline-specific journals. Concerted efforts are therefore indicated to attract and publish these cutting-edge papers in order to keep the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal in the forefront of orofacial cleft and craniofacial anomaly research and to provide a valuable service to American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association members.

  12. Independence and executive remuneration for supervisory board members and non-executive directors

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hana Horak

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, the author analyses the issues of independence and rewarding members of supervisory boards and non-executive directors in administrative boards. The question of independence was developed as one of the fundamental issues of corporative administration. Members of these organs of society should have the appropriate qualifications, specific knowledge and skills in order to reasonably and impartially weigh up social business and reach decisions in the best interests of society, its members and other interest holders. So that they can act in accordance with this, the presumption is that they are independent. Recently, after financial crises, it is precisely the independence of supervisory members, that is, non-executive directors, which is considered to be the foundation of the fight against the opportunism of administration and main shareholders. The authors analyse the Recommendations on Independence and Executive Remuneration for members of supervisory and administrative boards of the European Union, together with their implementation in Croatian law and practice.

  18. What questions do board members in public service organizations ask about executive compensation?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chris Bart

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study is to investigate the governance questions that board members in public service organizations ask as they go about fulfilling their responsibilities for the oversight of executive compensation. The research uses 24 of the questions – as proposed by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants - that directors should ask about executive compensation and investigates both their usage and perceived importance by board members. The study is based on a usable sample of 47 board members from public service organizations who were attending a Canadian director training program. The research finds that, insofar as public service organizations are concerned, not all of the recommended executive compensation governance questions were asked with the same frequency nor were they considered equally important. Additionally, the relationship between a question’s usage frequency and its perceived importance was not perfect. However, there appears to be a significantly positive relationship among the number of executive compensation governance questions asked and selected elements of a board’s governance structure.

  16. Institutional review board community members: who are they, what do they do, and whom do they represent?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Klitzman, Robert

    2012-07-01

    The roles of nonaffiliated and nonscientific institutional review board (IRB) members at academic medical centers have received some attention, but questions remain-Who are they, what do they do, and whom, if anyone, do they represent? The author interviewed 46 IRB chairs, directors, administrators, and members in 2007-2009. He contacted the leadership of 60 IRBs (every fourth one in the list of the top 240 institutions by National Institutes of Health funding), interviewed IRB leaders from 34 of these institutions, then recruited 7 additional members from these IRBs to interview. Regular IRB members often called these individuals community members and were confused as to who these members were, or should be, and whether they did, or should, represent anyone and, if so, whom. IRBs encountered challenges in finding, training, and retaining these community members. Tensions emerged because nonscientific members, by definition, have no scientific training, so they have difficulty understanding key aspects of protocols, making them feel unempowered to contribute to reviews. IRBs varied in how much they encouraged these members to participate, in what ways, and with what success. At academic medical centers, IRBs struggled with how to view, choose, employ, and retain nonaffiliated and nonscientific members, and they varied widely in these regards. Some IRBs had these members review entire protocols, others only limited parts (particularly reading consent forms for comprehension), pro forma. Yet, at times, these members' input proved very important. These findings have critical implications for policy, practice, and research.

  17. Need for ethics support in healthcare institutions: views of Dutch board members and ethics support staff.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dauwerse, Linda; Abma, Tineke; Molewijk, Bert; Widdershoven, Guy

    2011-08-01

    The purpose of this article is to investigate the need for ethics support in Dutch healthcare institutions in order to understand why ethics support is often not used in practice and which factors are relevant in this context. This study had a mixed methods design integrating quantitative and qualitative research methods. Two survey questionnaires, two focus groups and 17 interviews were conducted among board members and ethics support staff in Dutch healthcare institutions. Most respondents see a need for ethics support. This need is related to the complexity of contemporary healthcare, the contribution of ethics support to the core business of the organisation and to the surplus value of paying structural attention to ethical issues. The need for ethics support is, however, not unconditional. Reasons for a lacking need include: aversion of innovations, negative associations with the notion of ethics support service, and organisational factors like resources and setting. There is a conditioned need for ethics support in Dutch healthcare institutions. The promotion of ethics support in healthcare can be fostered by focusing on formats which fit the needs of (practitioners in) healthcare institutions. The emphasis should be on creating a (culture of) dialogue about the complex situations which emerge daily in contemporary healthcare practice.

    We are delighted to announce that from January 2009, Professor Murray T Batchelor of the Australian National University, Canberra will be the new Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. Murray Batchelor has been Editor of the Mathematical Physics section of the journal since 2007. Prior to this, he served as a Board Member and an Advisory Panel member for the journal. His primary area of research is the statistical mechanics of exactly solved models. He holds a joint appointment in mathematics and physics and has held visiting positions at the Universities of Leiden, Amsterdam, Oxford and Tokyo. We very much look forward to working with Murray to continue to improve the journal's quality and interest to the readership. We would like to thank our outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Professor Carl M Bender. Carl has done a magnificent job as Editor-in-Chief and has worked tirelessly to improve the journal over the last five years. Carl has been instrumental in designing and implementing strategies that have enhanced the quality of papers published and service provided by Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. Notably, under his tenure, we have introduced the Fast Track Communications (FTC) section to the journal. This section provides a venue for outstanding short papers that report new and timely developments in mathematical and theoretical physics and offers accelerated publication and high visibility for our authors. During the last five years, we have raised the quality threshold for acceptance in the journal and now reject over 60% of submissions. As a result, papers published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical are amongst the best in the field. We have also maintained and improved on our excellent receipt-to-first-decision times, which now average less than 50 days for papers. We have recently announced another innovation; the Journal of Physics A Best Paper Prize. These prizes will honour excellent papers

  8. Engaging with Community Advisory Boards (CABs) in Lusaka Zambia: perspectives from the research team and CAB members.

    The use of a Community Advisory Board (CAB) is one method of ensuring community engagement in community based research. To identify the process used to constitute CABs in Zambia, this paper draws on the perspectives of both research team members and CAB members from research groups who used CABs in Lusaka. Enabling and restricting factors impacting on the functioning of the CAB were identified. All studies approved by the University of Zambia Bioethics Research Committee (UBNZABREC) from 2008 - 2012 were reviewed to identify those studies that were likely to include a CAB. Eight teams with studies that included a CAB were identified. For each of these studies, consent was obtained to conduct an informal interview with a research team member and to obtain contact details for one CAB member. In total 14 interviews were conducted with 8 research team members and 6 CAB members from 12-30 August 2013. Identification of potential CAB members from the community and their participation in developing the terms of reference for CABs was perceived to have contributed to the success of the CAB. Due to the trust that the community had in members of their community the CABs were then in a stronger position to influence community participation in the research. Training of CAB members was identified as a factor that enhanced the functioning of a CAB. Lack of commitment and low literacy levels of CAB members posed a threat to the role of the CAB. Although compensation in the form of a stipend was not provided, CAB members were provided with transport reimbursements for attending meetings. Selection of CAB members from within the community contributed to community confidence in the CAB, enhancing its ability to act as an effective link between study team and community. This contributed positively to the conduct of the study and enhanced community awareness and acceptance of the research. However, establishment of study specific CABs has the potential to compromise CAB independence

    Full Text Available This research, based on stakeholder theory and the national cultural dimensions, aims to test the influence of foreigners on board and its size on Integrated Reporting (IR practices. The analysis is based on a sample of 1,058 European companies from 18 different countries, who adopted or not the IR for the year 2015, and it relies on a Logit. The dependent variable is a dummy (presenting or not the IR and the independent variables are represented by the board characteristics (foreigners and size. The impact of the critical mass on the presence of foreigners and the cultural dimension on the basis of directors’ nationality was tested relying on the masculinity/femininity dimension of Hofstede. Besides, the directors’ country of origin was considered, namely if they belong to the major European countries presenting a wider IR diffusion. The relationship between foreigners on board and IR is found to be negative. This means that companies with at least one foreigner are less inclined to adopt IR. The results show that the boards with more of three foreign administrators have a major propensity to adopt the IR. The membership of the directors in countries with a feminist culture also has a positive effect.

    Full Text Available By actively seeking out opportunities to bring art into traditionally STEM-focused activity, and vice-versa, we are deliberately increasing the diversity of the environment. Makerspace services and activities, to the extent they are open and visibly accessible to all, are a natural for the spontaneous development of trans-disciplinary collaboration. Within the spaces of the library, opportunities to connect individuals around shared avocational interest might range from music and spontaneous performance areas to spaces salted with LEGO bricks and jigsaw puzzles; the potential connections between our resources and the members of our communities are as diverse as their interests. Indeed, when a practitioner from one discipline can interact and engage with others from across the STEAM spectrum, the world becomes a richer place – and maybe, just maybe, we can fan the flames of curiosity along the way.

    Emergency exception to informed consent regulation was introduced to provide a venue to perform research on subjects in emergency situations before obtaining informed consent. For a study to proceed, institutional review boards (IRBs) need to determine if the regulations have been met. To determine IRB members' experience reviewing research protocols using emergency exception to informed consent. This qualitative research used semistructured telephone interviews of 10 selected IRB members from around the US in the fall of 2003. IRB members were chosen as little is known about their views of exception to consent, and part of their mandate is the protection of human subjects in research. Interview questions focused on the length of review process, ethical and legal considerations, training provided to IRB members on the regulations, and experience using community consultation and notification. Content analysis was performed on the transcripts of interviews. To ensure validity, data analysis was performed by individuals with varying backgrounds: three emergency physicians, an IRB member and a layperson. Respondents noted that: (1) emergency exception to informed consent studies require lengthy review; (2) community consultation and notification regulations are vague and hard to implement; (3) current regulations, if applied correctly, protect human subjects; (4) legal counsel is an important aspect of reviewing exception to informed-consent protocols; and (5) IRB members have had little or no formal training in these regulations, but are able to access materials needed to review such protocols. This preliminary study suggests that IRB members find emergency exception to informed consent studies take longer to review than other protocols, and that community consultation and community notification are the most difficult aspect of the regulations with which to comply but that they adequately protect human subjects.

    Hudson, R. P.

    1989-01-01

    The completion of Volume 26, 1989, marked the end of my tenure as Editor of Metrologia. My association with the journal, its parent body the Comité International des Poids et Mesures, its host organization the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, the publishers Springer-Verlag and last (but by no means least) the Editorial Board, has been a pleasant one and I trust that the subscribers will have found the product to be generally satisfactory. There have been, it is true, some disappointments along the way and I shall mention two of these while expressing the hope that the new Editor will enjoy a greater success in their regard. First is the question of circulation, which has stayed dangerously low, although the shrinkage has tapered off in the most recent years. Because of the narrow public support, the costs of production are relatively high and this, through a consequently high subscription rate, tends to enshrine the unsatisfactory state of affairs. Modest schemes to broaden the journal's appeal and bring in a wider readership have foundered upon the first step, namely, that of procuring from staff members of the national standards laboratories the hoped-for articles which would discuss the state of the art in delivering the highest-quality measurement services to the public. However, some very interesting and bolder schemes are presently under discussion. I had also hoped to leaven the journal's content a little by regularly appearing articles on the latest developments within the great national laboratories. But, as with technical review articles, it has proven very difficult to find the right authors who can also spare the time, and only a few laboratories have found it possible to collaborate. In taking my leave, it remains for me to thank all the contributors, referees and readers for their support, to express the hope of an ever brighter future for Metrologia and to wish to the new Editor, Dr D A Blackburn, a happy and successful tenure.

    Innovative deceased donor intervention strategies have the potential to increase the number and quality of transplantable organs. Yet there is confusion over regulatory and legal requirements, as well as ethical considerations. We surveyed transplant surgeons (n = 294), organ procurement organization (OPO) professionals (n = 83), and institutional review board (IRB) members (n = 317) and found wide variations in their perceptions about research classification, risk assessment for donors and organ transplant recipients, regulatory oversight requirements, and informed consent in the context of deceased donor intervention research. For instance, when presented with different research scenarios, IRB members were more likely than transplant surgeons and OPO professionals to feel that study review and oversight were necessary by the IRBs at the investigator, donor, and transplant center hospitals. Survey findings underscore the need to clarify ethical, legal, and regulatory requirements and their application to deceased donor intervention research to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and facilitate more transplants. © Copyright 2015 The American Society of Transplantation and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons.

    Bhattacharya, P.

    2004-04-01

    On 1 January, 2004, I assumed the position of Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics. I will start by saying that I will do my best to justify the confidence of the journal management and publishing staff in my abilities. I was fortunate to have been able to work, as an Editorial Board member, with my predecessor, the previous Editor-in-Chief, Professor Allister Ferguson. Allister has provided a high degree of intellectual stewardship for the journal in the last five years. He has made the job appear a worthy challenge for me. I therefore take this opportunity to thank Allister on behalf of the Editorial Board and publishing staff of the journal. Several other factors contributed to my decision to accept this position. The first is the group of people who actually go about the business of publishing. The Senior Publisher, Nicola Gulley (and her predecessor Sophy Le Masurier); the Managing Editor, Jill Membrey; the Publishing Administrators, Nina Blakesley and Sarah Towell; the Production Editor, Katie Gerrard and their office staff form an amazing group and have managed to make the operation of the journal incredibly efficient. An index of this is the speed with which incoming manuscripts are processed. The average time between the receipt of a manuscript and its web publication, if accepted, is 130 days. This is three to five times shorter than for most other journals. A factor that contributes to this success is a responsive pool of referees that the publishing staff have as a valuable resource. Ultimately, the standard bearers of any journal are the referees. Therefore, a grateful `thank you' is due from all of us at J. Phys. D to all our referees, who diligently perform this honourable task. The Associate Editors of the journal, Professors Lawler, Margaritondo and O'Grady, also provide immense scientific leadership. They help in defining new directions for the journal and in the publishing process. Last, but not least, a remarkable asset of

I wish to pay tribute to the staff at the IOP Publishing Office for the continuing excellent quality and short publication times for articles appearing in PMB. There can be no doubt that this contributes to the popularity with authors and readers alike. It almost goes without saying but I should also thank all the contributors, referees, Editorial Board members and International Advisory Board members who have, collectively, made PMB the success that it is. For historical interest I list below the 11 editors of PMB since its inception. Three of these editors have contributed papers to this issue. 1956-1961 Professor J E Roberts, Middlesex Hospital, London 1961-1972 Professor Sir Joseph Rotblat, St Bartholomew's Hospital, London 1973-1978 Professor H A B Simons, Royal Free Hospital, London 1979-1982 Mr J Clifton, University College Hospital, London 1983-1985 Professor R P Parker, University of Leeds, Leeds 1986-1987 Dr M J Day, Newcastle General Hospital, Newcastle 1988-1991 Professor S C Lillicrap, Royal United Hospital, Bath 1992-1995 Professor B L Diffey, Dryburn Hospital, Durham 1996-1999 Professor M O Leach, Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London 2000-2005 Professor A H Beddoe, University Hospital, Birmingham 2006- Professor S Webb, Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, London Finally, apart from noting the usual caveat that the Guest Editor, Editor-in Chief, IOP and IPEM take no responsibility for opinions expressed by authors, I would like to conclude by wishing Professor Steve Webb and future editors every success. While I may not be around for the centenary issue in July 2056 I have every reason to believe that it will be a good one.

    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

    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.

The ‘Nordic-window' approach is also our reason for inviting scholars to offer critical reviews in English of important works written in the Nordic languages for an international audience. The responses to our efforts to establish this journal have been most encouraging. We have been fortunate to have highly qualified researchers willing to be reviewers. We also hope we can develop the journal in collaboration with our readers. We hope readers will contribute to the journal's continuous improvement by giving us comments and proposals. The NJSR is a non-profit journal. For the start-up period we have received a grant from Lillehammer University College. Our aim is to run the journal with contributions from a number of colleges and institutes in order to avoid the need to impose publication fees onto the authors. As the NJSR is a new journal, we welcome article submissions, critical reviews of scholarly works, and letters.

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?

    EBLIP is in dealing with a submission from one of the editorial team (Koufogiannakis, 2012. Strong ethical principles have been at the heart of the EBLIP journal since its inception, but decision making is quite informal and based on the agreement of the editorial team members who meet monthly and communicate regularly by email. In keeping with our informal decision making structure the editorial team discussed how to deal with the submission by an editorial team member and decided that it should be treated in exactly the same way as any other submission (i.e., subject to double blind peer review and would need to adhere to the decision of the appropriate editor. To do this we also needed to adjust the Open Journal System, so that the submitting editor did not have access to the area where submissions and reviews are stored. In line with the COPE code (2011, we then made this procedure explicit on our web site (http://ejournals.library.ualberta.ca/index.php/EBLIP/about/editorialPolicies#peerReviewProcess, as well as documenting the decision on our internal wiki. As the journal grows and develops, it is important that our decision making and principles maintain consistency and are made explicit. We also need to plan for the future and ensure that the journal is open to as wide a range of people as possible. To this end all our positions are advertised widely, and each application is reviewed by at least two members of the team. Terms of office and a policy for succession planning have also been established. The criteria and policies are stored on a wiki, which hosts a wide range of guidelines, procedures, and documents and is used by all members of the editorial team. As the team grows and similar issues are faced by new members of the editorial team, we have a reference point, policy, or guide to ensure that the decisions made are consistent. As appropriate these can be reflected in the policies which are stated on the journal website and are available to all our users

    The end of 2008 cannot pass without remarking that the economic news has repeatedly strengthened the case for nuclear fusion; not perhaps to solve the immediate crises but to offer long-term security of energy supply. Although temporary, the passage of the price of oil through 100 per barrel is a portent of things to come and should bolster our collective determination to develop nuclear fusion into a viable energy source. It is with great pride, therefore, that I can highlight the contributions that the Nuclear Fusion journal has made to the research programme and the consolidation of its position as the lead journal in the field. Of course, the journal would be nothing without its authors and referees and I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to them all for their work in 2008 and look forward to a continuing, successful collaboration in 2009. Refereeing The Nuclear Fusion Editorial Office understands how much effort is required of our referees. The Editorial Board decided that an expression of thanks to our most loyal referees is appropriate and so, since January 2005, we have been offering the top ten most loyal referees over the past year a personal subscription to Nuclear Fusion with electronic access for one year, free of charge. To select the top referees we have adopted the criterion that a researcher should have acted as a referee or adjudicator for at least two different manuscripts during the period from November 2007 to November 2008 and provided particularly detailed advice to the authors. We have excluded our Board members and those referees who were already listed in the last four years. According to our records the following people met this criterion. Congratulations and many, many thanks! T. Hino (Hokkaido University, Japan) M. Sugihara (ITER Cadarache, France) M. Dreval (Saskatchewan University, Canada) M.

    Full Text Available This paper presents an empirical investigation to study the effects of institutional ownership, internal audit system, the number of non-executive board members and having differentiation between chair and general managers’ responsibilities on the likelihood of stock price crash on 110 listed firms on Tehran Stock Exchange over the period 2004-2011. The study uses Chen’ model (2001 [Chen, J., Hong, H., & Stein, J. C. (2001. Forecasting crashes: Trading volume, past returns, and conditional skewness in stock prices. Journal of Financial Economics, 61(3, 345-381.] to perform the investigation. Based on the results of the survey, there is a negative and meaningful relationship between stock price crash and institutional ownership when the level of significance is ten percent. In addition, as the number of non-executive board members increases, the chance of stock price crash decreases when the level of significance is five percent. However, separation between the responsibility of chair and general managers did not seem to influence on stock price and also having internal audit system had no impact on the likelihood of stock price change.

    The decision-making process includes a series of activities undertaken in biomedical journals from the moment a manuscript is received until it is accepted or rejected. Firstly, the manuscript is evaluated by the members of the Editorial Board, who analyze both its suitability for the journal and its scientific quality. After this initial evaluation, the article is evaluated by peer reviewers, an essential process to guarantee its scientific validity. Both the Editorial Board and the peer reviewers usually use checklists which are of enormous help in this task. Once the biomedical article has been accepted, the publication process is started, which in turn includes a series of steps, beginning with technical and medical review of the article's contents and ending with the article's publication in the journal. The present article provides a detailed description of the main technical and ethical issues involved in the processes of decision-making and publication of biomedical articles.

    Full Text Available Dear Readers, It is with great satisfaction and sense of responsibility that I hand over to our community the third issue of Volume 11 of Internext, the first one in which I was the editor-in-chief. Last October, the Program of Master's and Doctoral Program in International Management (PMDGI coordination, giving continuity to the rotation policy of editors, assigned me the function. My satisfaction and a sense of responsibility are heightened by the fact that Anpad has recently released a new Spell ranking of national academic journals based on their impact factors, and in that ranking Internext is  in the first quartile among the 97 ranked journals. In the criterion of citations per document, Internext ranked 4th among all Brazilian Business journals! Of course, the merit of the impact of Intenext, evidenced by the Spell classification, does not belong to the publisher who just took office, but to those who preceded me: Felipe Borini and Eduardo Spers. To both of them, and the rest of the editorial team, especially the never tiring  Dennys Rosseto and Jackeline Ferreira, my recognition for their  dedication and competence and my commitment to do everything within my reach to maintain and evolve the quality of the work that have done. In this issue, as in the previous ones, Internext features  six articles that constitute important additions to the stock of knowledge about internationalization of business in emerging countries. In a context of intense discussion of the implications of protectionist measures for national industries, Yolanda Carbajal-Suárez and María Esther Morales-Fajardo carry out a timely analysis of the development of the automotive sector in Brazil and Mexico, with an emphasis on the impact of trade agreements negotiated between the two governments on export and competitiveness of these sectors.

    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.

    Welcome to the first issue of the modified Fluid Dynamics Research (FDR) journal, which is now being published by IOP Publishing on behalf of the Japan Society of Fluid Mechanics. Since its launch in 1986, FDR has become a well-established international journal that publishes theoretical, numerical and experimental studies contributing to the fundamental understanding and application of fluid phenomena. It has also been an invaluable resource for physicists and researchers in engineering interested in problems relevant to the motion of fluids. From 2009, FDR will be edited by a new international Editorial Board, with the strong intention of establishing the journal further and bringing it to a wider audience. In this new-look FDR, which will be published six times per year, readers will find several special sections containing high quality invited reviews and papers written by leading researchers who have been selected by the international Editorial Board. This is in addition to the regular papers on a variety of topical subjects by active researchers in the field. As before, there are no publication charges for standard articles, and now article numbering has been adopted, enabling accepted papers to be published online more quickly, ahead of print publication. In order to maintain a balanced and up-to-date perspective, we welcome feedback from our readers regarding the content of the journal, as well as suggestions for topics to cover and areas to highlight. Finally, I would like to thank our authors, members of the international Editorial Board, and the staff at IOP Publishing for producing this first issue. We hope you will enjoy reading this renewed and exciting journal for the international fluid dynamics community.

    external fields and in matter, has always been an interesting field for investigation. Every kind of radiation reflects specific processes of fundamental atomic physics, classical or quantum electrodynamics and might have specific applications in accelerator physics (beam diagnostics), nuclear physics (hard photon sources), material science and medicine (X-Ray sources). Nowadays, electromagnetic radiation studies cover electron energies from a few MeV up to hundreds of GeV in many laboratories throughout the world. The goal is to study the physics of generation of various kinds of radiation and their interplay or combined effects and to find successful applications for them. New photon sources, which use new types of radiation at new accelerators (e.g. tabletop synchrotrons), may be considered complementary to conventional photon sources based on synchrotron radiation, undulator radiation and free electron lasers. We express our thanks to the members of the International Program Committee for their suggestions during the preparation of the scientific program of the workshop. We warmly thank the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow) and the Tomsk Polytechnic University (Tomsk) for the financial and administrative support.

    practice at its finest.So, what happens when evidence doesn’t work? We try to figure out why it didn’t work. Did we miss something in the critical appraisals? What is inherently different in the population or system at hand? Are there other confounders in your environment thatyou had not considered (i.e. time of year, available resources, courses being offered, etc.? As pointed out in this issue’s commentary, a good idea is to plan your project with research and assessment in mind. Not only will you be able to track the various stages of implementation and reactions to it, it will save you the time that you may have taken weeks or months later to retrospectively evaluate. And, never to let an opportunity be wasted, I would welcome an article submission outlining an evidence based implementation that didn’t work. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t mean that you have failed. It means that there was something you had not anticipated that had a negative effect on your intervention. We can all benefit from such information. Speaking of benefiting, I will take this opportunity to bid a fond farewell to two of EBLIP’s original Editorial Board members: Denise Koufogiannakis and Pam Ryan. Although Denise and Pam have made numerous contributions to evidence based librarianship, their work on this journal has arguably made the biggest footprint. Denise co‐founded this journal and has worked tirelessly to create an avenue for high quality publishing in this subject area. She has passionately maintained the Evidence Summaries for each issue – a task that has required a great deal of both time and expertise. She created an excellent team of writers with whom she works closely and she consistently provides feedback to ensure that first‐rate summaries are published in every issue. Pam courageously agreed to take on the task of Production Editor with the first issue. No one on the Editorial Board had experience with the journal publishing software, OJS, and Pam was able to

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.

    Since 1970, Revista Médica de Chile applies the peer review system as a main step in the selection and improvement of the manuscripts to be published. Over 150 experts participate in this process annually, reviewing up to 5 manuscripts per year. The final decision with regards to to the acceptability of a manuscript remains a responsibility of the Editor. The reviewers are selected by the Editor and his Associates among clinical investigators, prominent subspecialits and basic scientists, according to the nature of the manuscript. Most of them work in Chile. Their names are published and their confidential work is acknowledged in a special chronicle published in the Revista once a year. A small number of these reviewers appears in every issue of the journal identified as Members of its Editorial Advisory Committee. They have been selected by the Editors among those reviewers who deal with a greater number of manuscripts and also those experienced specialists whose opinion is requested when an exceptional conflict of opinions is raised by the authors and their reviewers. After 5 to 10 years of a highly praised collaboration, the previous Committee has been changed and new names were included, starting in this issue of Revista Médica de Chile.

    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 The end of yet another calendar year leads to a time of new beginnings and new challenges. For me, this is the end of my three year term as Editor-in-Chief of EBLIP, which has been a very rewarding challenge personally and professionally. I would like to thank each and every person who has contributed to the success of the journal. EBLIP relies on the talented and professional people who regularly give of their time and expertise. I particularly want to thank the Editorial Team who has worked so closely with me over the past three years: Alison Brettle, Lorie Kloda, Katrine Mallan, Jonathan Eldredge, Michelle Dunaway, and our former intern Andrea Baer. Thank you!In the past three years, EBLIP has continued to grow and thrive. We currently have more than 3400 registered readers, and an Editorial Advisory Board comprised of 70 people from 11 countries. Several of our papers have had more than 5000 pdf downloads, and the average number of downloads is 1308. I am also pleased to let you know that we have recently been accepted for inclusion in Scopus.In looking back and reflecting on the past three years, we have continued to build a strong open access journal that is relevant to LIS practitioners. We have increased the number of articles being published, and the overall number of submissions. Content is wide ranging, including multiple sectors within library and information studies. Our evidence summaries continue to be the heart of our journal, with more and more research from our field being critically appraised in this way. We have also added new sections such as Using Evidence in Practice, in which authors reflect on incorporating evidence into practice.And now it is time yet again for renewal and change. I am very pleased to welcome Alison Brettle of the University of Salford, as she begins her three year term as Editor-in-Chief. Alison has been the Associate Editor (Articles since the very early days of publication and brings extensive

  4. Performance and Symptom Validity Testing as a Function of Medical Board Evaluation in U.S. Military Service Members with a History of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.

    2018-02-01

    The study was designed to replicate and extend pervious findings demonstrating the high rates of invalid neuropsychological testing in military service members (SMs) with a history of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) assessed in the context of a medical evaluation board (MEB). Two hundred thirty-one active duty SMs (61 of which were undergoing an MEB) underwent neuropsychological assessment. Performance validity (Word Memory Test) and symptom validity (MMPI-2-RF) test data were compared across those evaluated within disability (MEB) and clinical contexts. As with previous studies, there were significantly more individuals in an MEB context that failed performance (MEB = 57%, non-MEB = 31%) and symptom validity testing (MEB = 57%, non-MEB = 22%) and performance validity testing had a notable affect on cognitive test scores. Performance and symptom validity test failure rates did not vary as a function of the reason for disability evaluation when divided into behavioral versus physical health conditions. These data are consistent with past studies, and extends those studies by including symptom validity testing and investigating the effect of reason for MEB. This and previous studies demonstrate that more than 50% of SMs seen in the context of an MEB will fail performance validity tests and over-report on symptom validity measures. These results emphasize the importance of using both performance and symptom validity testing when evaluating SMs with a history of mTBI, especially if they are being seen for disability evaluations, in order to ensure the accuracy of cognitive and psychological test data.

    Full Text Available Issue  47  of  Publicaciones brings  excellent  news  for  this  research  journal:  from October 2017 it is included in the prestigious Scopus database. This achievement has been made possible by two factors: on the one hand, all the work done by previous editors-in- chief of Publicaciones, the Editorial Board, the Advisory Board, the peer reviewers, the Administration and Services staff of the Melilla university campus, the various interns the journal has had, and our sponsors, the Department of Education, Youth and Sport of the Autonomous City of Melilla and the Office of the Vice-Rector for Research and Knowledge Transfer of the University of Granada. On the other hand, the new strategy of internationali- sation and visibility on social media that the journal has been following since July 2016 has also made an important contribution. During the past year, Publicaciones has been presented in higher education institutions in China (Shanghai International Studies University and Peking University and Mexico (Autonomous University of Yucatán and Centre for Teaching and Research of the Ministry of Education of the Yucatán State Government, and it will continue on this path of interna- tionalisation over the next few years. It has also established collaboration agreements with a number of institutions and international education networks to publish special issues. As for its presence on social media, work has been done on search engine optimisation (SEO and networks, web traffic monitoring, updating the Google Scholar Citations profile and creating a new Facebook profile. All this is gradually building a process of national and international growth and expan- sion for the journal, which will continue seeking to be included in new document collections and databases and to increase its quality factors and indicators. Turning now to the content of this issue, number 47, it begins with a study on the use of information and communication

    Index. The journal depends entirely on its authors and referees and so I would like to thank them all for their work in 2010 and look forward to a continuing, successful collaboration in 2011. Refereeing The Nuclear Fusion editorial office understands how much effort is required of our referees. The Editorial Board decided that an expression of thanks to our most loyal referees is appropriate and so, since January 2005, we have been offering the top ten most active referees over the past year a personal subscription to Nuclear Fusion with electronic access for one year, free of charge. This year, two of the top referees have reviewed four or more manuscripts in the period November 2009 to November 2010 and provided particularly detailed advice to the authors. We have excluded our Board Members, Guest Editors of special editions and those referees who were already listed in the last four years. Guest Editors' work on papers submitted to their special issues is also excluded from consideration. The following people have been selected: Osamu Naito, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Naka, Japan Masahiro Kobayashi, National Institute for Fusion Science, Toki, Japan Duccio Testa, Lausanne Federal Polytechnic University, Switzerland Vladimir Pustovitov, Russian Research Centre, Kurchatov Insitute, Russia Christopher Holland, University of California at San Diego, USA Yuri Gribov, ITER International Organisation, Cadarache, France Eriko Jotaki, Kyushu University, Japan Sven Wiesen, Jülich Research Centre, Germany Viktor S.

  16. EDITORIAL: Incoming Editor-in-Chief

    Webb, Steve

    2006-01-01

    Physics in Medicine and Biology (PMB) is a journal that originated in the UK but is now rightly regarded as one of the pre-eminent international journals for the publication of material coming within its remit. It is 50 years old and its maturity is an outcome of the consistent support of high performing authors, a supportive and professional publishing house, dedicated referees, many vigorous and conscientious editorial boards and the collective input of the 10 previous Editors as listed in his incoming editorial (January 2000 issue) by the retiring Editor, Professor Alun Beddoe. The scientific climate and it associated publication modus operandi in the 1950s was very different from that at the current time and the journal has evolved to reflect this. Hence today the scope of content is somewhat broader, the size of the journal is vastly greater, the whole publication process is slicker and more efficient and a paper in PMB is highly prized by its authors and those who look to quality factors and impact. The quality of the journal still relies on the voluntary labour and expertise of its busy international referees and Board members. For many years I have tried to place my own research material in PMB and encourage my teams to do likewise, not only acknowledging the prestige of the journal but also because of the extraordinarily fast turnaround time of all the processes without any loss of quality. This serves us very well and the publishing team are to be congratulated. Some things seem to change more slowly or not at all, however. The prediction, when I started my research career, that books and journals would be dinosaurs by now has manifestly not come true and, whilst most of us are addicted (and why not?) to the electronic ways of doing things that can be done by more traditional ways, PMB and a packet of reprints from time to time arriving by post still has a reassuring feel despite the fact that the papers have been `on-line' for a while before.

    I started in 2002 as Editor-in-Chief of a well established journal—MST (Measurement Science and Technology). It was a time when modern means of communication offered new opportunities for the scientific community—for all scientists and engineers whether at universities, in industry or at other institutions—to access better quality information in a shorter time. This development helped us to be more efficient in our daily scientific work and to anticipate new trends faster than before. A flood of information was created by different search engines. A few online journals or journals published in emerging countries with a similar profile to MST appeared on the market. MST had to provide new answers in response to these developments. In 2002 I postulated two requirements to the journal. Firstly, the publisher has to be up to date. My impression over the years has been that IOPP is excellently organized. That has made it easier for the board members and all our reviewers to concentrate on the scientific aspects of our input to the journal. During all my visits to Bristol or my contacts with the IOPP staff I always met very professional and enthusiastic staff members. They have not only supported and encouraged the ideas and initiatives of the Editorial Board members, but they have also worked hard on establishing one of the most effective journal operations in the field of measurement science and technology. Many authors are well aware of this. Thus I am able to declare that the first requirement for a successful journal has been met. Secondly, the scientific level has to be high and the journal should attract readers from all over the world. This task was the responsibility of the Editorial Board members and of myself. Our strategy was on the one hand to ensure continuity in MST but on the other hand to be open to new trends and developments. Examples of these new aspects of the journal are fields like micro- and nanometrology, measurement techniques for

    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

    Honorary Editor Neither. But what exactly is Physics Education? What is its role? Such questions exercised the combined wit and wisdom of the Editorial Board at its recent meeting in October. Some facts. Among the core readership of the journal are teachers of physics in UK secondary schools, nearly all of whom teach A-level physics. Many of these who are not already Institute of Physics members benefit from a reduced subscription via membership of the Institute of Physics Schools and Colleges Affiliation Scheme or the Association for Science Education. But some readers worldwide subscribe at the full annual individual rate. In addition the journal is bought by over a thousand institutions (colleges, universities, schools) - and most of these are abroad, in North America especially. A typical issue shows a broad geographical spread of authors. Less than half of the papers submitted for publication come from the UK, the rest come from our foreign readership, with the USA in the lead. Each issue contains about eleven papers - currently we receive an average of ten articles a month, of which about 60% are ultimately published. This creditable figure hides the fact that 90% of UK submissions are accepted, whilst two thirds of 'foreign' articles are rejected by the referees. Linguistic fluency is significant here, of course. But some are rejected because they are seen as too limited in their appeal to our readers; often there is too much physics and not enough education. These decisions are made by the referees, who are all members of the Editorial Board. The main topic of discussion at the October Board meeting was whether the journal does satisfy the needs of its readership. It was generally agreed that the main question referees and editors should ask themselves is: Will this article/issue help to improve the teaching and learning of physics? We were worried that there is not enough in the journal that teachers can use in their everyday tasks of planning or

    Dear authors and reviewers of articles for Measurement Science and Technology, I would like to thank all those who have published papers with us in 2006, and special thanks go to those of you who have kindly reviewed articles for the journal this year. I would also like to take this opportunity to update you on some of the developments on the journal this year. As many of you are no doubt aware our impact factor (a measure of the average number of times recent papers are referred to by others) has remained above 1 for the second year in a row. This is often taken as an indication of the quality and relevance of recently published research, and although as readers we develop our own instinct for journals of high quality, it is gratifying as an Editor to see the data from an independent organization agreeing with my own assessment. This year we have welcomed several new faces to our Editorial Board and International Advisory Board. We are delighted to welcome Professor Hirofumi Yamada of the University of Kyoto as a representative from Japan. From China we have been joined by Professor Xuzong Chen of Peking University and Professor Zhiyi Wei of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing. Professor Ivan Marusic from University of Minnesota and Dr Paul Williams of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder have joined as North American representatives. As usual you will be able to submit your articles through them or direct to the Editorial Office in Bristol, UK. As part of our ongoing initiative to give our authors' work the highest visibility, all articles are freely available online for 30 days from the date of publication, allowing all researchers to read and view the latest research as soon as it is published, and this year there have been many interesting articles to read! As regular readers are aware, Measurement Science and Technology publishes special issues and features, which highlight an area of current interest. This year's topics included

    INTRODUCTION: There seems to be no dedicated journals available for publication of editorial research in the biomedical sciences; that is research into editorial or publication process issues involving the scientific approach to writing, reviewing, editing and publishing. It is unknown where papers...... journals with a median of one article per journal (range: 1-17). CONCLUSION: The publication of papers on editorial research seems to be dispersed. In order to increase the visibility of this research field, it may be reasonable to establish well-defined platforms such as dedicated journals or journal...

    Full Text Available Well, here we are with another full volume published. I have watched this journal grow from an idea to a sustainable, reputable journal with readers and contributors from all over the world. It has grown from a small editorial group to a collection of peer reviewers, Evidence Summary writers, copyeditors, etc., that is eighty-four strong (and counting. I have wavered between wondering whether promoting evidence based librarianship is akin to flogging a dead horse to feeling secure in knowing that we are making a difference. Being involved with this journal has made me look at what I do in a different light and I now approach decisions and change with what I refer to as “structured flexibility”. Following the EBL framework is the structured part, and when it works, it works well. But we all know that there is not always an answer in the literature nor is there a guarantee that implemented evidence based change will work similarly in different environments. That’s where the flexibility comes in.Three years as Editor-in-Chief has been a challenging, enjoyable, time-consuming, and fascinating learning experience. It has provided me with numerous opportunities in terms of speaking engagements, workshop offerings, and valuable discussion and discourse. It has also provided me with research and project ideas that I have had to place on the back burner until a time when I have enough hours in the day. Recognizing that adding additional hours to the day is, well, impossible, I have decided to stepdown from my editorial role to pursue other activities. This was a bittersweet decision, but a necessary one. I am pleased to announce that Denise Koufogiannakis will be taking on the role of Editor-in-Chief for the next term. Denise, as many of you know, has also been involved with this journal since its inception and, after a brief period of reduced involvement, has eagerly stepped up to the plate.

    This study examines two newspapers' editorial coverage of issues related to the Healthy People 2010 focus areas and compares the two newspapers. A qualitative study. Two Los Angeles, California, newspapers. The masthead editorials of the Los Angeles Times and La Opinión in the year following the release of Healthy People 2010. A structured data abstraction instrument was used for descriptive coding. Correspondence to 1 of the 28 Healthy People 2010 focus areas determined whether domestic editorials were about health. An ethnographic content analysis. There were 1075 editorials from the Los Angeles Times and 361 from La Opinión; 17% were focused on domestic health issues. Three Healthy People 2010 focus areas dominated: Environmental Health, Injury and Violence Prevention, and Access to Quality Health Services. Ten focus areas did not receive a single mention in the Los Angeles Times, and 19 focus areas lacked editorials in La Opinión. Editorial writers regularly tackled issues related to a Healthy People 2010 focus area. Public health practitioners can meet with their local newspaper editorial board and discuss the nation's health objectives as manifested by Healthy People 2020 and the National Prevention Strategy, thereby promoting policies that support individual and population health.

    Full Text Available This issue our guest editors are close to home. Wilhelm Heitmeyer and Steven F. Messner, both members of our own Board of Editors, have assembled a focus section examining the question of “Youth at Risk.” Their collection certainly lives up to our aspiration to be truly interdisciplinary and international. The methods applied in the reported research range from interview-based studies through empirical number-crunching to laboratory experiments (the latter a first for this journal; the geographical scope spans from Argentina through Central America and Europe to Africa. The youth at risk here are in conflict with the police, with each other, with societies that fear them, with societies that ignore their needs. Our systematically eclectic approach continues outside the focus section too, with contributions on the theory of violence, female fighters in Africa, and spousal violence in Pakistan.

    To provide an editorial introduction into the 2014 IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics with an overview of the content, the new publishing scheme, and upcoming 25th anniversary. A brief overview of the 2014 special topic, Big Data - Smart Health Strategies, and an outline of the novel publishing model is provided in conjunction with a call for proposals to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Yearbook. 'Big Data' has become the latest buzzword in informatics and promise new approaches and interventions that can improve health, well-being, and quality of life. This edition of the Yearbook acknowledges the fact that we just started to explore the opportunities that 'Big Data' will bring. However, it will become apparent to the reader that its pervasive nature has invaded all aspects of biomedical informatics - some to a higher degree than others. It was our goal to provide a comprehensive view at the state of 'Big Data' today, explore its strengths and weaknesses, as well as its risks, discuss emerging trends, tools, and applications, and stimulate the development of the field through the aggregation of excellent survey papers and working group contributions to the topic. For the first time in history will the IMIA Yearbook be published in an open access online format allowing a broader readership especially in resource poor countries. For the first time, thanks to the online format, will the IMIA Yearbook be published twice in the year, with two different tracks of papers. We anticipate that the important role of the IMIA yearbook will further increase with these changes just in time for its 25th anniversary in 2016.

  17. 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

    Full Text Available Hoy más que nunca se promueve el espacio público, especialmente on-line. A pesar de ello, el papel de la producción mediática pública en la cultura juvenil no ha sido muy relevante en el ámbito de lo educativo. Este texto facilita la comprensión de las relaciones entre la participación cívica y la difusión mediática de la juventud en el contexto de sus intervenciones e interacciones. Está basado en el seguimiento durante tres años de la «Voz de la Juventud», de Finlandia, dirigido a jóvenes de entre 13 y 17 años de edad. Los resultados del estudio muestran que el fomento de la ciudadanía en los jóvenes puede potenciarse con la educación en medios, resultado de tres elementos relacionados entre sí: la participación ciudadana de la juventud, incluyendo la producción mediática, la difusión mediática, y la pedagogía entendida como aprendizaje colaborativo. Public space, especially online, is now offered more than ever before. Still, the role of public media production in youth cultures has not been very much noticed in civic pedagogic settings. This contribution provides insights to the relations between youth, civic participation and media pu blicity in the context of youth work. It is based on three years follow up study of the «Youth Voice Editorial Board» in Finland, among youngsters aged 13-17 years. The results of the study show that youth citizenship can be strengthened with media literacy education which consists on three elements related with each other: youth civic participation including media production, media publicity and pedagogy understood as learning community.

  4. What makes great boards great.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sonnenfeld, Jeffrey A

    2002-09-01

    In the wake of meltdowns at WorldCom, Tyco, and Enron, enormous attention has been focused on the companies' boards. It seems inconceivable that business disasters of such magnitude could happen without gross or even criminal negligence on the part of board members. And yet a close examination of those boards reveals no broad pattern of incompetence or corruption. In fact, they followed most of the accepted standards for board operations: Members showed up for meetings; they had money invested in the company; audit committees, compensation committees, and codes of ethics were in place; the boards weren't too small or too big, nor were they dominated by insiders. In other words, they passed the tests that would normally be applied to determine whether a board of directors was likely to do a good job. And that's precisely what's so scary, according to corporate governance expert Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, who suggests that it's time for some new thinking about how corporate boards operate and are evaluated. He proposes thinking not only about how to structure the board's work but also about how to manage it as a social system. Good boards are, very simply, high-functioning work groups. They're distinguished by a climate of respect, trust, and candor among board members and between the board and management. Information is shared openly and on time; emergent political factions are quickly eliminated. Members feel free to challenge one another's assumptions and conclusions, and management encourages lively discussion of strategic issues. Directors feel a responsibility to contribute meaningfully to the board's performance. In addition, good boards assess their own performance, both collectively and individually.

  6. 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

    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

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.

    , in his hands, the expansion continued and the transition to electronic production took place. In 2005, an agreement was signed with IOP Publishing and the bustling production work of the in-house team moved abroad to Bristol, leaving just the Editor-in-Chief to man the ship at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. In 2011, however, as Roger prepared to step down, submissions had reached astounding levels as is evident from figure 1: that year, almost 1500 manuscripts were received by Physica Scripta, now acknowledged to be amongst the fastest growing journals in IOP Publishing, when measured in these terms. The year on year increase stands at 20% and, once again, of the extensive range of topics covered, condensed matter physics had been identified as the subject area in most need of attention because the burden of reviewing had become too great for one editor to oversee alone. Thus, when I joined Physica Scripta in January of this year, securing new External Editors for this field was perceived to be the most urgent task. It is, therefore, with the greatest of pleasure that I am able to announce the arrival of two new editors for this section: Professors David Keen and Tapio Rantala. Physica Scripta statistics Figure 1. The annual submissions made to Physica Scripta in recent years have rocketed and the rejection rate (given as a percentage) has increased rapidly. The modest increase in the number of articles accepted (shaded in blue) reflects a deliberate policy to augment the scientific quality. Professor Rantala has been selected by the Finnish Physical Society to replace Professor Matti Manninen, who is stepping down as the Finnish representative on the journal's Editorial Board. Professor Rantala is a prominent theorist and has been engaged in active research in a number of fields. In his early work, he was interested in surface science and molecular physics, however his expertise is predominantly in the domain of solid or materials physics related to

Further information can be found on the EBLIP5 blog at.The Editorial Board of EBLIP is excited about the upcoming feature issue on evidence based practice in school librarianship. The two guest editors, whose names many of you will undoubtedly recognize due to their huge body of work, Carol Gordon and Ross Todd, have animpressive and fascinating list of articles lined up as well as several evidence summaries and commentaries. This feature issue will be published in December 2008.Plans are also underway for a feature issue on evidence based practice in public librarianship for December 2009. Julie McKenna, many of you will know from her work in both academic and public libraries, has agreed to be the guest editor. Informal discussions at conferences and meetings seem to indicate that, although people are interested in evidence based practice, the skill sets necessary are often lacking. To address this, EBLIP will feature a new column titled EBP 101, debuting in the 3(3 issue. This regular column, co-authored by Su Cleyle (EBLIP co-founder and former Editor-in-Chief and Julie McKenna, will highlight and focus on one specific skill per issue. While Su and Julie have several ideas already, it would be highly useful for EBLIP readers to indicate skills that they would like to see addressed.

  17. EDITORIAL: Permanent revolution - or evolution?

    Dobson, Ken

    1998-03-01

    Honorary Editor It was that temporary Bolshevik Leon Trotsky who developed the principle of `permanent revolution', a principle that perhaps characterizes the recent history of education in (south) Britain more than does, say, principles traditionally associated with the Conservative or Labour parties. As this editorial is being written, changes are being made to primary school education, and the long-awaited details of the post-Dearing reorganizing of post-16 education are yet to hit the overful bookshelves and filing cabinets of school heads and examination board officials. But something unique has happened recently which might have surprised even Trotsky. The Secretary of State for Education has set up targets for primary school pupils' attainment and threatened (or promised) to resign if they are not met within the lifetime of our newly elected parliament. Of course, if Mr Blunkett is still in a position to resign at that stage he will have been the longest serving Secretary of State since time immemorial. But we should not carp: this is truly a revolutionary idea. Not the promise to resign - although this idea is not so fashionable now as it once was. The revolutionary idea is that a major change to an educational process is actually being made that carries with it a predicted and testable outcome. By contrast, when school physics was refreshed a generation ago by the introduction of Nuffield courses at both pre- and post-16 stages, no `targets' were set. I and many other physics teachers certainly preferred teaching these to teaching their predecessor syllabuses, and might even dare to assert that the pupils liked them too. But we still don't really know whether or not they learned more - or even better - physics. Very little happened as far as the outside world was concerned: the usual fraction of students gave up physics at the usual ages, and those who were examined didn't really get a better reward for their more up-to-date and more enjoyably learned

    2008-03-01

    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

    I would like to extend my warmest greetings to the readers and staff of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM), on the occasion of its 10th anniversary. Launched in 2000, STAM marks this year an important milestone in its history. This is a great occasion to celebrate. STAM was founded by Tsuyoshi Masumoto in collaboration with Teruo Kishi and Toyonobu Yoshida as a world-class resource for the materials science community. It was initially supported by several materials research societies and was published as a regular peer-reviewed journal. Significant changes occurred in 2008, when the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) became solely responsible for all the costs of maintaining the journal. STAM was transformed into an open-access journal published by NIMS in partnership with IOP Publishing. As a result, the publication charges were waived and the entire STAM content, including all back issues, became freely accessible through the IOP Publishing website. The transition has made STAM more competitive and successful in global publication communities, with innovative ideas and approaches. The journal has also changed its publication strategy, aiming to publish a limited number of high-quality articles covering the frontiers of materials science. Special emphasis has been placed on reviews and focus issues, providing recent summaries of hot materials science topics. Publication has become electronic only; however, selected issues are printed and freely distributed at major international scientific events. The Editorial Board has been expanded to include leading experts from all over the world and, together with the Editorial Office, the board members are doing their best to transform STAM into a leading materials science journal. These efforts are paying off, as shown by the rapidly increasing number of article downloads and citations in 2009. I believe that the STAM audience can not only deepen their knowledge in their own specialties but

    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

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.

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

    this issue emerged when traditional concepts were enforced by strong actors (without joint envisioning and planning with the others; these circumstances usually do not allow for balanced discussions about the future. However the important role of minor actors such as scientists was also revealed. Experiences with their involvement provided a chance to highlight the role of scientists in policy-making. Based on the findings of this and other related research, the role of scientists can be framed not only as providers of the (rather technical expertise to reach the goals that were set within the environment or SD oriented decision-making, but also as entering policy negotiations providing an insight into the processes they undergo. If invited at an early stage of decision-making, they can have a considerable impact on its results (then their involvement can be described as an action research. This finding might be used in planning of similar practical and scientific projects. As we can see, several interesting ideas resulted from a comparative meta-analysis of the case studies and were outlined in this issue of Envigogika. In general, it is a social point of view that provides an insight into the nature of the examples presented from the Czech Republic and the good practices from abroad. A scientific method of description is used here to reflect policy mechanisms as well as to indicate a way forward for integrating decision making practice into very sensitive, local or regional sustainability contexts. We sincerely hope that this will precipitate a broad process of public dialogue among experts as well as other actors – beyond the realm of academic discussions only, but nevertheless with substantial academic input. We wish you an enjoyable read and a pleasant and relaxing summer!

    competencies required by firm internationalization positively affect board internationalization, whereas the impact of the internationalization of a firm’s commercial operations is positive but not significant across all model specifications. We find that the higher the number of national board members......, the amount of foreigners on the nomination committee also positively relates to the number of foreigners on the board. Rather than age, the median board tenure negatively impacts the prevalence of foreigners on the supervisory board. This barrier to board internationalization may reflect conservatism, fear...

    At the time of writing, the construction of ITER is making, quite literally, visible progress; buildings have gone up, the tokamak pit has been equipped with the seismic pads and pylons have been put in place for the high tension input to the power supplies. Most of the main procurement arrangements have been let and we will see an increasing volume of deliveries to the ITER site over the coming years. In addition, the National Ignition Facility has started full operation and will undoubtedly see important results coming from it in 2012. These projects are important reminders of what a monumental endeavour we are all engaged in and the potential of nuclear fusion to improve the long-term condition of the human race. We can be proud, therefore, that the Nuclear Fusion journal makes such an important contribution to controlled fusion programmes and is maintaining its position as the leading journal in the field. More than 350 articles are submitted each year from over 40 countries. Nuclear Fusion continues to be the most highly cited journal in the field, with an impact factor of 3.303, as listed in the ISI 2010 Science Citation Index. The journal depends on its authors and referees for its success and so I would like to thank them all for their hard work in 2011, which should maintain the level of readership and the citation indices for years to come. I sincerely hope that 2012 will be as good. Refereeing The Nuclear Fusion editorial office understands how much effort is required of our referees. The Editorial Board decided that an expression of thanks to our most loyal referees is appropriate and so, since January 2005, we have been offering the top ten most active referees over the past year a personal subscription to Nuclear Fusion with electronic access for one year, free of charge. This year, three of the top referees have reviewed five manuscripts in the period November 2010 to November 2011 and provided excellent advice to the authors. We have excluded our

  7. Does small equal predatory? Analysis of publication charges and transparency of editorial policies in Croatian open access journals.

    2017-06-15

    We approach the problem of "predatory" journals and publishers from the perspective of small scientific communities and small journals that may sometimes be perceived as "predatory". Among other characteristics of "predatory" journals two most relevant are their business model and the quality of the editorial work. We analysed 444 Croatian open access (OA) journals in the Hrčak (portal of Croatian scientific journals) digital journal repository for the presence of article processing charges as a business model and the transparency of editorial policies. The majority of journals do not charge authors or require submission or article processing charges, which clearly distinguishes them from "predatory" journals. Almost all Hrčak OA journals have publicly available information on editorial boards, including full names and affiliations, and detailed contact information for the editorial office at the Hrčak website. The journal names are unique and cannot be easily confused with another journal or intend to mislead about the journal's origin. While most journals provide information on peer review process, many do not provide guidelines for reviewers or other editorial and publication ethics standards. In order to clearly differentiate themselves from predatory journals, it is not enough for journals from small research communities to operate on non-commercial bases, but also to have transparent editorial policies.

This will take place between November 1st and 20th, and so will be over, more or less, by the time you read this Editorial. Ordinary teachers of physics are unlikely to be asked for opinions. However, the Institute's informal rapid response team will do their best to represent the interests not only of its members but of the wider physics community. The question remains, however, as to why such rapid reactions are necessary. Surely now is the time to reflect upon the consequences of the rushed initiatives of the past eight years or so in education, and indeed undertake a professional, independent evaluation of them. But our rulers seem incapable of doing other than create crises, and then managing the crises they create by creating even more. There are of course alternatives to this, as could easily be discovered by looking north of Hadrian's Wall, where change is taking placed in a managed, courteous fashion, and where the numbers of students studying physics post-16 is gently increasing. The Scottish Office Education Department has recently taken part in an OECD study of curriculum innovation in 13 countries. The department reports some key findings in the Scottish initiative which are in fact common to all the successful initiatives reported [1, 2]. The message is clear: curriculum change will fail - either completely or at least in reaching the anticipated outcome fully - if certain requirements are not met. The most significant of these, reported in the OECD study, are: Teachers will respond to challenges to become involved in curriculum innovation and to acquire new skills and competences if they are given encouragement and reassurance that they will be well supported in their efforts. Innovation must be systemic, i.e. showing an awareness that many aspects of education are interrelated (so that a change in one affects others). Teacher involvement is vital

    I am honoured to take on the leadership of Plasma Sources Science and Technology (PSST) as the successor to Professor Mark J Kushner, with whom I have had the pleasure to work on the journal for many years. Under Mark's insightful and energetic leadership over the last six years, PSST has cemented its position as the journal of choice within its subject area and is now one of the most successful journals in the field. In this first issue of 2014, I would like to reflect on some of the events and achievements of 2013. At the start of the year the PSST Editorial Board, recognizing the vital importance of atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) data to low-temperature plasma physics, agreed that PSST would accept papers reporting such new data, generated through both experiment and theory. Jonathan Tennyson joined the Editorial Board to represent this area. In March Anne Bourdon joined the Associate Editor team and has since then played a key part in the journal's review process alongside our other Editors. During the autumn, PSST moved to a new editorial management system. In December Deborah O'Connell was awarded the 2013 Hershkowitz Early Career Award and Review and joins the Editorial Board as of 2014. I would also like to thank Miles Turner for his work in leading the drafting of a guide on the details necessary in the reporting of the results of computer simulations; the main conclusions of this report have been incorporated into the journal policy. Overall 2013 has been another successful year for PSST; paper submissions were up by 8% on the previous year and there was the highest ever number of downloads of PSST papers in one year. Another noteworthy feature of 2013 was the continuing improvement in publication times while maintaining our high standards for acceptance and providing expert feedback coupled with encouragement particularly to younger researchers and groups. Largely as a result of the hard work of our referees and Associate Editors, the average time

The session attempted to highlight the need for archaeology to embrace those elements of computing that were, and still are, developing rapidly as a major part of our language and mode of communication. The employment of emerging technologies has major implications toward the direction and form of our discourse and research, but it is perhaps the organic nature of the changing face of archaeological communication that urges us to investigate this phenomenon a little more critically (see Bateman.

    Full Text Available Com o presente número, o periódico eletrônico do Programa de Pós-graduação em Serviço Social e Política Social da Universidade Estadual de Londrina está caminhando para o seu 16º ano de existência, dos quais 13 anos publicados no formato eletrônico, sendo um pioneiro nesta modalidade de publicação. E continuando essa trajetória, após a apresentação de um número temático, Serviço Social em Revista retoma sua tradição em publicar artigos variados sobre o abrangente leque de discussões que envolvem as políticas sociais brasileiras.O primeiro grande conjunto de artigos coloca em evidência as questões de um dos campos mais significativos da política social, a saúde pública. São produções acadêmicas, contribuições reflexivas e críticas, que articulam saberes de professores e profissionais envolvidos na execução da política de saúde pelo Brasil afora.As discussões estão todas voltadas para a esfera da gestão da política de saúde, transitam por vários de seus aspectos. Se fosse possível sugerir um roteiro de leitura desses textos, o início se daria pela questão do financiamento da política de saúde, apresentado a partir de um instigante artigo que relaciona a política neodesenvolvimentista com o processo de privatização da saúde, inclusive nos níveis de gestão da política. Neste caminho, o leitor poderia ser apresentado à realidade dos limites impostos por esse modelo privatizado, através de um artigo sobre a superlotação das maternidades públicas no Estado de Pernambuco.Continuando, o leitor encontrará dois artigos que lhe darão um alento no sentido de mostrar que nem tudo foi retrocesso desde a promulgação da Lei 8080. Eles apresentam, em uma perspectiva histórica, como a política de saúde avançou ao longo do tempo. Um dos artigos trata das mudanças de concepção acerca do conceito de território e os avanços construídos na compreensão do que deve ser o trabalho na saúde organizado a partir dessa perspectiva. 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. Um deles trata de relacionar o fazer profissional do assistente social, com a necessidade de sistematização da prática em consonância com a ética profissional. O outro é um relato de experiência profissional na área das penas e medidas alternativas.Destaca-se o esforço dos autores para compreender as políticas sociais a partir de uma perspectiva crítica, e refletir sobre o desenvolvimento de alternativas de intervenção no sentido de sua ampliação para a garantia dos direitos sociais. Os editores

    Full Text Available La investigación es uno de los pilares fundamentales de la educación bibliotecológica, que debe procurar el desarrollo en los estudiantes, de actitudes hacia el estudio, la exploración, la indagación, el cuestionamiento, mediante la utilización rigurosa de métodos, técnicas e instrumentos que les permitan generar nuevo conocimiento.Para el desarrollo y fomento de la investigación bibliotecológica, desde el contexto académico, quienes ejercen la docencia deben también ser investigadores asiduos, solo así se logrará afianzar una cultura investigativa que se fortalezca y genere profesionales competentes, que se destaquen por su pensamiento crítico, capaces de incursionar en todos los espacios y ámbitos de la sociedad, de una manera propositiva y creativa en procura del desarrollo económico, tecnológico, político y social tanto a nivel nacional como internacional.En el presente número se reseña la evolución que ha tenido la investigación en la Escuela de Bibliotecología y Ciencias de la Información de la Universidad de Costa Rica, desde un abordaje analítico que invita a la discusión y a la toma de decisiones que procuren el fortalecimiento y desarrollo de este tema tan importante para la profesión.Así mismo se plantean otros tópicos de igual relevancia, y que están en relación directa, la cultura de información y las políticas de información, pues como bien lo afirma Contreras (1997, p. 174 "Las políticas no sólo crean marcos legales y directrices de actuación. También suponen la expansión de ideas, pretensiones y valores que paulatinamente comienzan a convertirse en la manera inevitable de pensar."La Internet y la Biblioteca Académica 2.0 son parte también de esta gama de temas que se abordan a nivel internacional, afianzando aún más el papel de la profesión bibliotecológica y su responsabilidad para un adecuado manejo de la información, para ponerla al servicio de la sociedad a la que sirve.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1518-2924.2014v19n39pi Prezados leitores. Com muita alegria lançamos a primeira edição da revista Encontros Bibli em 2014 (v. 19, n. 39. A temática central deste número é Informação e Interação, o mesmo tema da edição mais recente do Enancib, realizado em 2013 em Florianópolis, o que inspirou a editoria e autores da Encontros Bibli a explorar um pouco mais questões ligadas e estes temas. O universo da Ciência da Informação e as Interações que ocorrem entre os atores e elementos envolvidos com tais temáticas utilizam bases teóricas e metodológicas de diversas áreas, dentre as quais se pode destacar: Biblioteconomia, Ciência da Computação, Ciência Cognitiva, Ciência da Comunicação, Tecnologias da Informação e da Comunicação, Museologia, Documentação, Jornalismo, Sociologia, Direito, Análise de Domínio e os Estudos Métricos da Informação. Interações estas fundamentadas pelos teóricos da área e que sustentam boa parte desta edição (Saracevic, Wersig, Le Coadic, Miksa, Borko e Hjørland. Pode-se afirmar que, em qualquer uma destas áreas que possuem conexões e intersecções com a Ciência da Informação, processos de interação e a informação estão diretamente associados. No tocante a Biblioteconomia, temos os estudos de sua metodologia de aplicação “O método do caso aplicado ao ensino da Biblioteconomia: histórico e perspectivas”; as suas unidades tratando o estoque informacional “Modelo de avaliação de valor e mérito de estoques de informação de bibliotecas universitárias”; a função da biblioteca pública “Mediação cultural e apropriação da informação em bibliotecas públicas”; a aplicação de mapa conceitual nesta unidade “Interação social e metodologias de ensino: o caso do Laboratório de Troca de Afetos - LATA sob as narrativas de seus participantes através do mapa conceitual”; e o papel do profissional da biblioteconomia “Práticas de inovação do bibliotecário no ambiente virtual”. Outro aspecto deste tipo de unidade de informação é a sua interação com as novas mídias e o seu potencial na web, considerando as redes sociais “As mídias sociais de olho na CI na perspectiva da disseminação da informação”; o papel das bibliotecas nacionais neste novo cenário da interação web “Las bibliotecas nacionales iberoamericanas en la web 2.0”; e um interesse que vem surgindo com a web 2.0 “Um levantamento sobre do uso de ferramentas da Web 2.0 entre os estudantes da Ciência da Informação da Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina”. A Ciência da Computação e a visualização da informação também sustentam a interação existente em novos aportes da Ciência da Informação “Visualisations en bibliothèques: comment rendre visible l’invisible”, tratando de aspectos de visibilidade. O Direito também traz conteúdo e elementos para interagir com a Ciência da Informação “Enseñanza digital versus derechos de autor: el papel de la biblioteca universitaria en apoyo de profesores y alunos”, bem como o papel social da biblioteca universitária. A análise de domínio, a partir dos estudos métricos, fornece instrumentos para que a Ciência da Informação observe o universo das redes de patentes “Relações sociométricas dos pesquisadores que patentearam inventos”; e identifique o papel da pesquisa tecnológica “A patente como objeto de pesquisa em Ciências da Informação e Comunicação”. Como sustentação educacional, temos processos de grupos de pesquisa em Ciência da Informação que tratam do surgimento de novos pesquisadores e novas ideias para a área, com o dossiê do Grupo de Pesquisa Informação, Tecnologia e Sociedade “Estudos e ações em Informação e Educação – 2013”.

    Full Text Available ¿Tiene el arte un nuevo discurso para saberse incorporado a una sociedad que, ella misma, ha cambiado de manera dramática sus formas de saberse, sentirse y oírse? La incorporación en los sistemas educativos formales del arte en el último siglo y medio, ¿ha aportado a las transformaciones, transfiguraciones y transgresiones de las culturas? La práctica artística, tan asociada a la genialidad de ciertas figuras o miembros de la especie, en muchos lugares de enunciación sigue manteniendo el arquetipo del arte y del artista como sujetos privilegiados o inspirados, una suerte de mesías poéticos que nos alumbran al resto de los mortales, con la genialidad de sus manufacturas. Sin embargo, es posible que el primer elemento de ruptura que haya provisto la inmersión de la formación artística en la academia haya sido justamente su academización. Lo que en su momento, para muchos de quienes hoy profesamos un trabajo artístico, fue un adjetivo útil al momento de desestimar nuestro paso por las aulas, hoy se convierte en regla de profesión, por algo que parece inestimable: la universalización a la que se expone quien pisa la academia. Como se sabe, la academia no enseña nada, es el sujeto en formación quien dispone de sus rutas de aprendizaje, incluso en los más herméticos templos del saber. La configuración de un “ser estético” resulta de una compleja red de conexiones que van fraguando una manera particular de entender el mundo, y de reaccionar ante él a través de una idea que se forma obra o discurso, para comunicar una poética. Pero quizá lo más importante de esta inmersión del campo del arte en los lugares de la academia, en la sistematización de los saberes, en el reconocimiento del carácter técnico y repetible de un enunciado “inspirado”, sea la posibilidad de que por este universo pase la sociedad, la humanidad, la persona. En otras palabras, la pérdida de un privilegio de los elegidos. Suena algo demagógico, pero la academia convierte en accesible el arte para la comunidad. Es su democratización. Y es en ese lugar en el que, desde la década de los años sesenta y setenta, pretende situarse el arte en la escuela, a partir de una negación rotunda: Se educa en el arte no para la producción o el consumo (aquel que no sea un buen artista en su formación, será un privilegiado consumidor, sino para el conocimiento. Más allá de los escenarios en los que el arte sirve como recurso lúdico o recreativo, emerge con fuerza la idea de una práctica educativa útil para la formación compleja y crítica de la persona, desde la formación básica, y no necesariamente en el foco del arte centrado sobre sí. En otras palabras, la educación artística en la escuela no debería centrarse en la formación sobre el teatro, o sobre la música, o la pintura y la expresión plástica, o sobre cualquier área canónica del campo artístico, sino sobre las implicaciones cognitivas, implícitas en el momento didáctico de encarar y resolver un problema, un enunciado. Seguramente una obra de Gógol, o de Stravinsky, o del pintor Francis Bacon contiene una trama, un saber que implica un orden y una estructura que pone al límite la experiencia de conocer, de enunciar, de saber. El saber como justificación de la existencia humana. En otras palabras, su valoración no es implícita a la obra, sino a lo que contiene de conocimiento tal obra Así, la academia que antes en el ámbito artístico se miraba con recelo, da con determinación el siguiente paso: preparar los dispositivos de enunciación que permitan encarar los problemas del arte en la educación, distintos a la manera de comprender un arte o una práctica artística. Y para ello urgimos la configuración de los ciclos posgraduales que se ocupen de problematizar este ámbito de la experiencia social.

    Full Text Available During the last decades, many applications of Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering have arisen for the characterization and remediation of environmental problems. As a result, now­adays this subject has become one of the most interesting areas of research in applied electrochemistry, with hundreds of papers published every year and many applications already ava­ilable in the market. This special issue contains sixteen very valuable contributions on these topics, written by highly recognized authors and covering the most relevant areas of interest within the topic. Environmental monitoring is a matter of the major importance because it helps to prevent and remediate pollution with the development of novel warning detection systems. For this reason, the first sets of contributions are related to characterization of environmental issues with electro­chemical methods and it contains valuable information about new tools for the characterization of organics, heavy metals and sulphur. Treatment of industrial wastes is one of the more stimulating environmental applications nowadays. Water is extensively used in industry not only as a heat exchanger fluid or a cleaning agent, but also for the production of many chemicals. As a consequence, significant volumes of waste­water are produced every day in our industries and they get into the environment after their treatment with technologies which are not always completely effective. An electrochemically-based solution to this problem is faced in this special issue with exciting contributions on electrolysis, electro-Fenton oxidation and electrocoagulation of wastewater, in which technologies for the efficient removal of dyes, persistent chemicals and inorganic pollutants are evaluated. Finally, the last set of papers included in this special issue focusses on soil remediation and bio-electrochemical treatments. Electrokinetic soil remediation (EKSR is one of the most motivating topics of research for electrochemical and environmental engineering in our time. Many applications are currently working at the full scale and in this issue, an authoritative review is included, in which the fundamentals and applications of the technology are clearly described. To conclude, trying to save energy, one of the more exciting and innovative areas of research is the production of electricity from bio-electrochemical processes. Research on this topic is still at a very early stage but results are promising and the concept of producing energy directly from waste is an out breaking idea as it is explained in the last contribution of this special issue. As a conclusion, this special issue is a very good summary of the most exciting research on electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering in the environmental protection and pollution control and, for sure, it will become a reference for many researchers in the near future.

    Full Text Available Esta edição termina o quarto ano de vida da revista Linguamática. O ano foi composto por uma edição especial, relativa a uma avaliação conjunta, o Págico, e esta edição convencional. Sentimo-nos bastante satisfeitos por conseguir nestes tempos manter a revista viva, mesmo que com relativa dificuldade. A verdade é que cada vez mais investigadores e docentes do ensino superior são avaliados não pela qualidade da sua investigação ou dos resultados obtidos, mas por uma classificação das conferências e revistas. Embora a Linguamática já se encontre indexada em vários índices, como o Latindex, não se encontra nos índices habitualmente usados, como o DBLP, ISI Web of Knowledge ou SCOPUS. Será muito complicado conseguir que a Linguamática seja considerada para qualquer um destes índices, especialmente pela língua usada não ser o inglês. No entanto, mudar a política da Linguamática para a publicação em inglês é impensável, já que iria contra os princípios que levaram à sua criação. No entanto, pareceu-nos que a inclusão de um resumo e um conjunto de palavras chave em inglês para cada artigo seria uma concessão aceitável. Sabemos que para conseguir este tipo de indexação também é importante a quantidade de citações de artigos publicados na revista. Outras revistas obrigam a que os artigos submetidos incluam citações para artigos da própria revista. Não nos parece que este tipo de obrigação seja decente, mas não podemos de deixar de pedir aos leitores e autores da Linguamática para, sempre que se adeque, façam citações a artigos publicados na revista. Mas não será pela falta de indexação que nós, os editores, iremos baixar os braços.

Three weeks on from its release, it is still doing the rounds on Twitter and achieving a certain level of public consciousness with its own series of jokes. And even a topic for the satirical Daily Mash website (readers of a sensitive disposition look away now. The article contained a series of visualisations which of course could only be presented as part of the final publication in an online format, but another reason for IA being chosen as the place of publication was the ability to be responsive and to publish quickly without the restrictions of a print schedule. In this instance, the first draft was submitted to me on 19 June then peer-reviewed, edited, proofed and published by 13 July! I don't think I have ever worked harder and so quickly than I did in the days leading up to publication but the publicity received was probably worth it. I did learn a few things about the way the traditional press works and how press releases get circulated, chewed up and spat out with details (like links to the original source [cough] slowly being edited out but all in all, it's a process I am more than happy to repeat. July was definitely a good month for the journal as it also saw the release of 'A Late Roman Well at Heslington East, York: ritual or routine practices?' by Steve Roskams, Cath Neal, Jane Richardson and Ruth Leary and got its reasonable share of publicity too. The article is Open Access thanks to the support of by the Archaeology Department Research Committee at York, and was picked up by traditional press and new media alike, and shows what can be done by lifting your gaze above the trench edge. It was always going to be hard to top those two articles in terms of publicity but the other articles in the issue should not be overlooked as a result. 'Being a Modern Human: essentialist and hierarchical approaches to the emergence of modern human behaviour' presents a novel approach to the relationship between population dynamics and material culture by recruiting hierarchical systems theory, 'A Sea of Small Boats: places and practices on the prehistoric seascape of western Britain' successfully applies landscape archaeology themes to maritime perspectives and 'Storing up Problems: Labour, Storage, and the Rural Peloponnese' is a nicely argued article on interpreting surface scatters

Por otra parte, los análisis que han hecho las grandes potencias en miras a sus estrategias de seguridad nacionales y sus libros de defensa en los dos últimos años, han sido marcados por las tendencias de que las amenazas provenientes del entorno global vienen reabriendo el debate de los roles y misiones de las Fuerzas Militares y de Policía, debido al impacto que aquellas como el terrorismo y el crimen organizado tienen sobre el orden interno, la libertad y la seguridad de las personas, siendo por ello una prioridad para la Seguridad Nacional.

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...

In Swedish and in English ‘design’ was historically used about maps or sketches of ships and buildings. Design then was more or less thought of as a practical device for creating an object that already existed in our minds or as intentions of God. The possibility to represent salient features of an object before it was built had many advantages in relation to constructions made in a process of trial-and-error.

Pensando nessas questões é que abrimos a edição do volume deste ano com um número temático dedicado ao uso das TDIC e ao ensino-aprendizagem de línguas. O objetivo é apresentar propostas pedagógicas relacionadas a materiais educacionais digitais, no intuito de trazer contribuições de experiências e de investigação para a área de ensino-aprendizagem de línguas em contextos digitais.

    Full Text Available Caros Leitores, É com satisfação que anunciamos mais um lançamento da edição de 2014. Este é o segundo fascículo, que traz como temática “Olhares da educação e tecnologia no processo transformativo do ensino-aprendizagem”. Sendo assim, é possível observar que cada vez mais as tecnologias digitais são aplicadas nos afazeres e nas atividades do dia a dia, em que foram identificamos relatos sobre seu emprego na educação em larga escala no Brasil e no exterior, construindo assim, uma via única onde tanto a educação quanto as tecnologias digitais se complementam para que o processo transformativo da aprendizagem possa atingir cada vez mais as camadas menos favorecidas com a evolução constante das tecnologias no âmbito do ensino. Nesta edição, presentamos seis artigos, duas pesquisas e um relato de experiência. Na primeira seção, ARTIGOS, Eliseo Berni Reategui, Maria Lúcia Kroeff Barbosa, Johannes Doll e Valter Roesler – todos da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul –, responsáveis pelo artigo “Um sistema de apoio à educação em saúde voltado a idosos com doenças crônicas”, apresentam um estudo sobre o emprego de um sistema de monitoramento remoto que busca auxiliar o idoso a compreender a importância de determinados cuidados com sua saúde. Além de monitorar dados e sinais do idoso, o sistema também disponibiliza e sugere ao usuário, vídeos e materiais informativos. O estudo envolveu coleta e análise de dados com abordagem qualitativa na modalidade de estudo de caso. No segundo artigo, intitulado “O esencantamento moral da escola pública: um ensaio de compreensão crítica”, Gabriel Lelis da Fonseca Ferreira e Carlos Alberto Lopes Sousa – ambos da Universidade de Brasília –, conferem nesse artigo particular atenção ao caso da escola pública, que vem, progressivamente, assumindo alguns aspectos morais da chamada escola-empresa, em um movimento geral de homogeneização da diversidade moral escolar no Brasil. Ainda assim a análise dos efeitos de desencantamento sobre a escola pública é feita sob uma perspectiva comparativa, em vista dos mesmos efeitos sobre outros tipos de escola, como a católica e a militar. No terceiro artigo, Renato Bellotti Senicato e Cláudia Beatriz de Castro Nascimento Ometto – ambos da Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba – trazem o artigo intitulado “Discutindo sobre o fracasso escolar na perspectiva de Bernard Charlot: em foco uma escola pública paulista de educação básica”, que tem como objetivo compreender aspectos relativos à formação de leitores e escritores na escola básica, uma vez que ele se preocupa com o ingresso de alunos ainda não alfabetizados no sexto ano. Como parte do projeto mais amplo, desenvolve-se um projeto de iniciação científica a fim de entender como Bernard Charlot compreende a escola, lugar de formação de jovens, na medida em que para ele é na relação com o saber que os sujeitos participam de modos diferenciados do processo de reprodução social, significando sua experiência escolar e transformando a si próprio. Márcia Gonçalves Nogueira e Maria auxiliadora Soares Padilha – ambas da Universidade Federal de Pernambuco – nos brinda com o artigo “Cultura digital jovem: as TIMS invadem as periferias, e agora?”. Esse trabalho tem como objetivo apresentar uma revisão da literatura sobre Cultura Digital Jovem e as transformações provocadas pela disseminação das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação Móveis e Sem fio (TIMS nas periferias da região metropolitana do Recife. No quinto artigo intitulado “Neuro-navegática: software desenvolvido para interação com Brain-Computer Interface para auxiliar o processo de inclusão escolar de pessoas com paralisia cerebral”, de autoria de Regina de O. Heidrich, Marsal Avila A. Branco, João Batista Mossmann, Anderson Rodrigo Schuh – todos da Universidade Feevale –, pretende apresentar um game desenvolvido para auxiliar o processo de inclusão escolar de pessoas com paralisia cerebral. Para o desenvolvimento dessa pesquisa os autores escolheram a metodologia de estudo de caso, pois se trata de uma investigação multifacetada, em profundidade, de um único fenômeno social. O estudo sobre o Brain-Computer Interface (BCI busca aprimorar a maneira de interação entre o ser humano e as máquinas, e permite que pessoas com paralisia cerebral possam se beneficiar no processo de educação inclusiva, assim como seus colegas sem deficiência. Já no último trabalho da seção ARTIGOS, com o título “Até que ponto o bullying influencia o aumento da demanda por educação de jovens e adultos?”, os autores Márcio Jacometti (Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná, Luciano Blasius (Academia Policial Militar do Guatupê – PR, Márcio José Polido (Colégio Agrícola Estadual – Santa Mariana, Murilo Martins de Andrade (Faculdade Educacional de Araucária – PR têm por objetivo descrever o processo de bullying que ocorre nas escolas como possível causa da evasão escolar e do aumento da demanda por Educação de Jovens e Adultos (EJA, observada no contexto educacional brasileiro atual, de modo a buscar uma resposta ao questionamento aventado. O artigo explora possíveis causas para a evasão e para a demanda pela EJA, e recomenda novas pesquisas para esclarecer essas questões e as consequências do processo de bullying. Na seção RELATO DE EXPERIÊNCIA, Kassiana da Silva Miguel (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Iasmine Alessandra Oliveira Baracho Campos, Carla Milene Knechtel, Daniela Frigo Ferraz e Lourdes Aparecida Della Justina – estes da Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná –, com o trabalho “A abordagem didático-investigativa no ensino médio: um estudo acerca do DNA”, que é o resultado de uma investigação realizada no contexto do Programa Institucional de Bolsas de Iniciação à Docência – PIBID, do subprojeto de Ciências Biológicas de uma universidade pública do Paraná, relatam que o objetivo desse trabalho foi evidenciar a reconstrução do conceito de DNA durante o desenvolvimento de um módulo didático em um enfoque investigativo com alunos do terceiro ano do ensino médio de uma escola pública do Paraná. Na última seção PESQUISA, a primeira delas sob o título “A utilização das novas tecnologias em uma escola experimental do Rio de Janeiro”, Diego Luz Moura e Cleyton Batista de Sousa – ambos da Universidade Federal do Vale do São Francisco (Petrolina, PE – relatam a utilização das novas tecnologias no ambiente educacional e como ela é considerada uma competência inovadora para o ensino. Os autores enfatizam que a escola ao dialogar com a cultura deve incorporar essa forma de comunicação na sua forma de fazer ver o mundo. A pesquisa é realizada na cidade do Rio de Janeiro, onde a Educopédia tem sido uma estratégia interessante nessa forma de ensino. Na segunda pesquisa, Ivan Ramos Pagnossin, Roberta Takahashi Soledade, Gil da Costa Marques (Universidade de São Paulo, e Carolina Magalhães Costa Cavalcanti (Universidade Virtual do Estado de São Paulo, com o trabalho “Objetos de aprendizagem interativos: participação e desempenho de estudantes de ciências”, apresentam resultados qualitativos e quantitativos de participação e de desempenho de estudantes do curso semipresencial de graduação em licenciatura em Ciências, pelo convênio entre a Universidade de São Paulo e a Universidade Virtual do Estado de São Paulo, em atividades de aprendizagem on-line baseadas em objetos de aprendizagem interativos que simulam situações-problema. Esperamos que os trabalhos aqui apresentados sejam úteis para aqueles que continuam e continuarão a fazer pesquisas, e que compartilham seus saberes com o campo da Educação. Uma boa leitura!

    Sea-level pressure (SLP) anomalies over the North Atlantic and European (NAE) sector (25-70°N, 100°W-50°E) and over a larger domain encompassing the entire North Pacific domain are studied to demonstrate that SLP anomalies (SLPAs) during boreal winter (January-March) vary widely between years characterized by the same El Niño-southern oscillation (ENSO) phase. The typical cold ENSO signal tends to be more stable than the warm one during the 1874-1996 period. The typical cold ENSO pattern (e.g. positive SLPA south of 55°N across the North Atlantic and negative SLPA in the northern North Atlantic) is similar to the positive phase of the North Atlantic oscillation (NAO) and occurs throughout the 20th century, except during the 1950s and 1960s when the basinwide westerlies are particularly slow. On the contrary, the typical warm ENSO pattern (e.g. positive SLPA from central Canada to Scandinavia and negative SLPA from the southeastern USA to central Europe, corresponding to the negative phase of the NAO) occurs mainly from 1930 to 1970. Another robust warm ENSO pattern is associated with a large positive (negative) SLPA between Newfoundland and western Europe (between Greenland and Scandinavia), and occurs mainly at the beginning and the end of the 20th century when the basinwide North Atlantic westerlies are strengthened. All these patterns stay statistically significant when the multi-decadal variability is removed from the North Atlantic SLPA. It is shown that the low-frequency variability of the north tropical Atlantic sea-surface temperature anomalies could exert a modulating effect on the ENSO teleconnection. NAE SLPAs tend to be strong during warm (cold) ENSO winters and consistent with a negative (positive) phase of the NAO when the north tropical Atlantic is anomalously warm (cold). Lastly, the magnitude of the SLPA patterns over the NAE sector appears poorly related to the intensity of sea-surface temperature anomalies in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific.

    Full Text Available The increasing interest in learning English has had an impact on the alternatives students are offered to study the language as well as on the particularities of classroom management teachers have to be aware of nowadays. 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.

    Full Text Available En el proceso de evaluación del nivel y grado de aplicación de las herramientas y conceptos contemporáneos de gerencia, la EAN ha identificado que las PyMES colombianas están alejadas de su aplicación1. Esto se explica por los hábitos técnicos y culturales y por la escasez de recursos económicos asequibles a tasas razonables que existen para este sector empresarial, situación muy diferente a las posibilidades de las grandes empresas de los países desarrollados y de las firmas multinacionales. La abundante teoría de Gestión elaborada en los países industrializados a partir de las observaciones de las grandes corporaciones, requiere de análisis para su asimilación y adecuación antes de ser impartida en las aulas o de ser divulgada en seminarios y foros empresariales de un país en desarrollo como Colombia. Más aún, en asesorías y consultorías realizadas a las empresas PyMES colombianas, los procesos de adaptación a la realidad se vuelven cada día más exigentes en la medida en que los empresarios requieren que se maneje un lenguaje organizacional entendible y asimilable para adaptar las herramientas adecuadas a su cultura, su estructura, sus estilos de gestión y sus recursos. La magnitud de este fenómeno se pone en evidencia cuando se tiene en cuenta que más del 98% de las organizaciones empresariales colombianas tienen menos de 200 empleados y alcanzan ventas anuales inferiores a 15 mil salarios mínimos; 2 es decir, que más del 98% de las organizaciones colombianas son MIPyMES. Este hecho de magnitud insoslayable justifica la orientación que debe tener una buena parte de las investigaciones de las universidades colombianas: apoyar nuestras empresas en su difícil tarea de enfrentar con éxito la globalización mejorando su productividad y competitividad.
