    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.

    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.

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

    Science.gov (United States)

    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.

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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Journal of Financial Therapy continues to garner national and international attention. 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.

    It is both an honour and daunting to be associated with a successful, long-lived journal. An honour because the journal already enjoys a high reputation, not only for the quality of its articles but also for the manner in which it has encouraged areas to grow and develop towards their own specialized publications. Daunting because maintaining the quality of the journal is a challenge needing constant vigilance and innovation. Moreover, I am conscious of all the work which has been done by my predecessors. Jean Zinn-Justin is the most recent and I should like to take this opportunity to thank him for all he has done so generously over the past five years. The journal relies on the partnership between its authors, its referees, the Editorial Board and the publishers. Its principal purpose is to provide, selectively, an archive for the physics community and it is essential that authors are eager to submit their papers in the knowledge that they will be treated fairly and rapidly, that the referees perform their role willingly and constructively, and that the international Editorial Board encourages both in their tasks, and solicits submissions from physicists working in budding areas. Besides co-ordinating the production of the journal, the publishers are developing ways to assist the community to perform its research. For example, the online electronic version of the journal is hugely successful with over 75,000 e-accesses in 1998. HyperCite is an exciting development which is beginning to link papers together in an unprecedented manner. It will take time to perfect this service but its use is growing apace. Moreover, approximately one half of all submissions to the journal are now via electronic means. Of course, many authors place their papers on other, freely available, electronic archives and these are valuable. Nevertheless, the sifting process provided by the referees and editorial board of a journal remains an essential part of the scientific evaluation of a

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

    The 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").

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. Nine articles were jointly selected by the Editorial Board of the journal and by the Guest Editor.

  11. Bibliometric analysis of anaesthesia journal editorial board members: correlation between journal impact factor and the median h-index of its board members.

    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.

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.

    Full Text Available Evidence based librarianship: we hear about it, we read about it, some of us practice it, some of us aren’t quite sure what it’s allabout. Information about EBL is relatively prolific of late and can be found in numerous journals, websites and books. It is indexed in databases and article indices across the disciplinary board – MEDLINE, CINAHL, ERIC, PsycInfo, DOIS, LISTA, etc. Evidence Based Library and Information Practice is the first journal whose primary focus is on EBL: what it is, how it affects the decisions we make, how we look at and perform research, and how it allows us to make more informed decisions based on the best available evidence. EBLIP, not unlike the practice of EBL, is international in scope and unlimited in its application and utility. Getting EBLIP off the ground has been a fascinating and rewarding experience, and I have several key people to thank for making the process seamless and satisfying. EBLIP is the brainchild of Su Cleyle, of MemorialUniversity of Newfoundland and Denise Koufogiannakis, of the University of Alberta. Su and Denise got the ball rolling early in 2005 while researching EBL on sabbatical and quickly pulled together an enthusiastic team of editors. As original Editor‐in‐Chief, Su’s vision, drive and unbeatable organization resulted in EBLIP becoming a reality more quickly and completely than we could have imagined. As Associate Editor (Evidence Summaries, Denise has begun to compile and disseminate a significant and highly useful collection of critically appraised synopses of research articles. The Evidence Summaries section allows EBLIP to reach well beyond publishing research and adds a component that our field has, until now, been lacking. In addition to her tireless work in this area, I thank Denise for keeping the momentum going throughout the entire start‐up process. EBLIP is published by University of Alberta Learning Services using OJS (Open Journal Systems. We are very

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.

    -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.

The editorial board was made up of well-known journalists, with extensive experience and aspecial polemic verve. Due to them, Curentul newspaper soon became a distinctive voice in the interwar media, its sources of information being among the most consistent and extensive. As a consequence,Seicaru’s newspaper held a primacy of information during that age, being a paper of wide circulation, moulding the public to like sensational and shocking news, those who read it accidentally. In one way or another, the journalistic method of the editorial staff is similar in many ways to that of a tabloid as it was conceived in the interwar years. At the same time, Curentul was a real newspaper of civic opinion and firm political attitude, despite some ideological and inherent derailments in the interwar years preceding theSecond World War.

The discharge of contaminants and associated land degradation is affecting human health and food safety. To support the Centre’s work, IRC-MEDMIND has created the Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management, and it is my pleasure to write this first editorial for the journal. The first issue is a collection of eight papers presented during the 1st International Conference on Environmental, Socio-economic, and Health Impacts of Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining which was held in Malang during February 2012. These eight papers have been authored by leading scientists from South-East Asia and Australasia, and describe new initiatives in the management of degraded and mining lands. On behalf of the Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management I thank you for reading this first journal issue of Volume 1. The editorial board invites you to support this journal and signals its intention to aspire to high standards of scientific and written excellence. As a result of the generous support of the University of Brawijaya, the Journal will have no page charges. The Journal of Degraded and Mining Lands Management therefore represents a new mechanism to present relevant, high quality and peer reviewed science and commentary to the international community.

Tras su reformulación en 2014 por su anterior editor, Ignacio Bisbal, la revista del Departamento de Planificación y Diseño Urbano, que hasta entonces había desempeñado un papel más divulgativo en el contexto chileno, se decidió ajustar a los estándares científicos y poder aspirar a su indización internacional. En esa etapa, la revista se transformó para dar cabida a todas las necesidades formales, y mejoró su visibilidad y la trazabilidad de su proceso editorial a través del Open Journal System.

    Full Text Available Die redaksie is dankbaar om nog ’n uitgawe van In die Skriflig aan ons lesers te bied. Hierdie uitgawe bied ’n artikel van Fritz de Wet wat handel oor ’n pneumaties-bepaalde teoretiese raamwerk vir ’n navorsingsmetodologie in Praktiese Teologie. Hy wys op die unieke aard van prakties-teologiese wetenskapsbeoefening en toon aan hoe ’n pneumaties-bepaalde teoretiese raamwerk binne hierdie pro- ses diensbaar kan wees. Hierdie artikel is ’n belangrike bydrae vir navorsingsmetodologie in ’n tyd waarin sodanige metodologie weer in Teologie aan die orde gestel word. Hannes van der Walt vra die vraag of “Spiritualiteit” die nuwe godsdiens van ons tyd geword het? Hierdie vraag het belangrik geword in die postmoderne geestes- klimaat waar, in verset teen die dominansie van die rede, weer ge- soek word na “ervaring” en “gevoelsbelewing” binne ’n religieuse verband. Sy konklusie is dat hoewel “Spiritualiteit” nie werklik as ’n nuwe religie gesien kan word nie, dit tog waar is dat mense en- toesiasties soek na nuwe geestelike ervarings. Daarom draai baie mense hulle rug op die hoofstroomkerke waarin hulle meen hulle nie sulke ervarings kan beleef nie. Benno Zuiddam ondersoek die teo- logiese verskuiwing in die denke van David Faure, die negentiende- eeuse Kaapse predikant. Aanvanklik het Faure sy teologie in die lyn van die rasionalisme bedink, maar het daarna sy toevlug tot spiri- tisme geneem. Op grond van hierdie historiese gebeurtenis vra Benno die vraag of dit nie ook die lot gaan wees van die Nuwe Her- vormingbeweging in Suid-Afrika nie.

    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.

    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 explores the role of the church in addressing the issue on sexuality and AIDS in the Pacific. Cultural, traditional, and religious constraints hinder people from discussing their sexuality. The belief that "talking about sex and sexuality will promote sexual activity or promiscuity" poses an obstacle to open and honest discussion of the issue. Moreover, people who believe that the disease is a punishment from God sustained the shame and stigma attached to AIDS. Since the church has a strong influence on lives of Pacific Islanders, it can as well help in shaping sexual attitudes and behaviors of people by providing AIDS education. This can be achieved by encouraging parents to have an honest and open discussion on sex and sexuality with their children and organizing activities with young people. In addition, religious leaders can help remove the stigma attached to AIDS by encouraging congregations to discuss the issue on sex and sexuality more candidly and take care of HIV/AIDS patients. Throughout the Pacific, churches are starting to initiate movements against AIDS.

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

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL Com este primeiro volume de 2014, a HOLOS entra no trigésimo ano de publicação deste periódico que teve sua primeira edição em 1985, ainda com o nome de Revista da ETFRN, tendo à frente da editoria a profª. Maria Emília Guedes Gonçalves. Este ano, a revista também completa dez anos do seu registro de ISSN na versão eletrônica. O periódico passou a ser online em 2004, durante a gestão do prof. Francisco das Chagas de Mariz Fernandes, então diretor-geral da antiga ETFRN, que nos autorizou a deslocar a editoria da HOLOS da Comunicação Social para a Diretoria de Pesquisa. Nesse contexto, as reais e virtuais oportunidades de elevação do impacto de visibilidade da publicação evidenciam o acerto da política editorial, refletida pelos números abaixo: o\tPeríodo da publicação online – 10 anos; o\tPeriocidade atual – bimestral; o\tVolumes publicados – 40; o\tArtigos publicados no período –615; o\tMédia de artigos publicados por volume – 15; o\tDownloads no período – 1.284.264. Com o objetivo de facilitar a divulgação dos artigos publicados, foi incorporado um plugin que possibilita efetuar links com as redes sociais, tais como, twitter, facebook, linkedin, entre outras 294 possibilidades. Esse novo serviço disponível na HOLOS ampliará o potencial de visibilidade e downloads, tendo em vista a facilidade de compartilhamento nas redes sociais. Da mesma forma, as novas possibilidades se colocam para os autores e leitores como atualização do contexto dos indicadores das publicações científicas.

    The urbanization of populations worldwide continues. Concurrently, poverty is increasingly being urbanized. In 1950, there were only 10 cities with populations of 5 million or more; in 1993, there were 33, six of which had 15 million or more inhabitants. This editorial introduces a group of articles which examine gender issues and human settlement, emphasizing the interconnectedness of all aspects of men's and women's lives, and the links between people's physical surroundings and what they do to survive. For the majority of men and women living in cities in the developing world, the reality of urban life is survival through informal work and a shelter in an unplanned area, which is likely to have few essential services such as health centers and schools, and may have no clean water supply, sanitation, trash collection, or power. There is increasingly inadequate public provision of housing and basic services, and a growing number of de facto female-headed households, especially in the poorest social sectors. In some Northern cities in recent years, growing numbers of homeless people live on the streets or in substandard accommodation in conditions of extreme deprivation. Diversification as a coping strategy; the reality of women's work; planning; making rural/urban links; understanding migration; land and shelter; cities, freedom, and fear; environmental concerns; and finding solutions are discussed.

So, it is never good that the composition of these boards lasts longer than 2-3 years.With the first number of BJBMS in 2014, a new composition of the Editorial board and Advisory Board of this journal was published. They consist of eminent scientists with adequate qualifications from nine countries and who can actively contribute to the good management of the journal and its further development. Their tasks will be: -Supporting and promotion of the journal (being true ambassadors of the journal,-Writing editorials, reviews and commentaries on works from the field of their expertise,-Giving opinions and suggestions on the management and policy of the journal, with the timely identification of the upcoming challenges. Commitment to upholding the ethics of publishing with impartiality and confidentiality, the fight against plagiarism and multiple or simultaneous publication of articles will remain a priority in the work of the Editorial Board and Advisory Board of BJBMS. Also, the newly appointed boards will continue to work in the way of protection of copyright for authors who were victims of plagiarism. In this sense, the editor in chief, together with the Editorial Board will take measures in accordance with the guidelines of the Committee for Ethics in publishing [1].Quality assurance in publishing and also in BJBMS is focused on the detection of forged data, images, and plagiarized articles. In its future work Editorial Board of BJBMS is obliged to pay attention to supporting academic integrity, ensuring the integrity of academic records and intellectual property. This latter implies: -Request for evidence of ethics for the approved research, that is, authors will be asked to prove that they obtained the consent of the patient for the study or in the case of experiments on animals, which methods were used so the animals would not suffer?-Ensuring that

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

    these that the support and advice of the Editorial Board is particularly invaluable. A major achievement of the past year has been the publication of the '80 Years of Plasma' special issue (available to read in this issue) which celebrates the 80th anniversary of Irving Langmuir's first use of the term 'plasma' to describe gas discharges. Guest Editors Nick Braithwaite and Raoul Franklin worked tirelessly to bring together contributions from some of the most notable researchers currently working in the field. The resulting collection of papers provides a comprehensive review of the history of plasma research centred about Langmuir's contributions which I hope will provide a valuable resource for future generations of plasma physicists. Looking to the year ahead, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Plasma Sources Science and Technology 'Most Highly Cited Paper Awards' whose goals are to recognize work which has had a significant long-term impact on the Journal and the plasma community as a whole. These will be awarded annually to the two papers which have received the highest number of citations over the preceding 5 and 10 year periods. A second new initiative for 2009 is the introduction of a series of Invited Reviews named in honour of the founding Editor of the Journal, Professor Noah Hershkowitz. The 'Hershkowitz Early Career Review' will provide a forum for young researchers to showcase their research and to bring new and innovative work to the attention of the community. Further details will be announced over the coming months. I look forward to working with you all over the coming year. As always, your comments and suggestions are welcomed.

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...

    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. This same multi-interdisciplinary approach will be the basis for discussions during the UN

Pero además de esto, este número tiene un significado muy especial: nuestra revista cumple 10 años de existir. Hace aproximadamente 12 años surgió en el seno del Centro Centroamericano de Población la inquietud de ofrecer un espacio para dar a conocer los estudios poblacionales de nuestra región de una manera diferente. Queríamos crear una iniciativa más dinámica, que implicara una mayor rapidez en la gestión editorial, menores costos y un contacto más directo con los autores. Optamos entonces por una opción que apenas iniciaba sus primeros pasos en la Universidad de Costa Rica: la publicación electrónica. De hecho, la nuestra fue una de las primeras revistas electrónicas oficiales de esta noble institución académica. Se tuvo que librar una batalla para lograr romper con los esquemas tradicionales, en los cuales solamente la publicación impresa tenía validez, mientras que las electrónicas se tomaban como de baja calidad. Ha sido un camino largo de evolución, formación, aprendizaje y hoy por hoy se ha demostrado la solidez y seriedad de nuestra revista.PSM ha publicado hasta el día de hoy (116 al 10-1 documentos entre artículos científicos, ensayos, informes técnicos, revisiones bibliográficas y documentos históricos. Ha contado con la colaboración de autores de 17 países de América y Europa y se encuentra indexada en 20 índices internacionales de gran prestigio, entre los que se destacan HAPI, DOAJ, Sherpa/Romeo, REDALyC, Latindex y Dialnet. Además, este año ingresará a Scielo.

    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 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

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    Full Text Available Editorial A revista eletrônica Holos, periódico multidisciplinar do Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Rio Grande do Norte (IFRN, apresenta à comunidade científica sua terceira edição de 2008, trazendo 11 artigos inéditos. Com este número, a revista atinge sua meta de publicação de três volumes anuais, que vem sendo alcançada há cinco anos, perfazendo um total de 15 edições no período. Fruto das contribuições contínuas dos grupos de pesquisa do IFRN, os quais apresentam resultados de pesquisas e experiências desenvolvidas nas diversas áreas do conhecimento, a Holos se consolida ainda mais como um canal de difusão científica e tecnológica, na medida em que toma uma dimensão nacional, mostrada pela expressiva presença de artigos de pesquisadores de outras instituições. No primeiro artigo, que resulta de uma monografia de graduação em Controle Ambiental pelo IFRN, tem-se a abordagem de um tema da mais alta relevância, em particular para o município de Natal-RN: a contaminação do aquífero. Os autores avaliam as concentrações de nitrato nas fontes de águas minerais e apontam que, em alguns casos, os índices encontrados já superam o valor máximo recomendável para a potabilidade. O artigo seguinte traz uma introdução à automação residencial a partir da apresentação de dois sistemas de baixo custo, a saber: controle liga/desliga de uma bomba d’água para reservatórios e controle liga/desliga de lâmpadas, que poderiam ser utilizados por portadores de necessidades especiais. Na seqüência, o terceiro trabalho analisa a importância do projeto político-pedagógico (PPP do CEFET-RN e avalia a sua contribuição para um processo de inclusão educacional, destacando a preocupação institucional com o tema. O quarto artigo, por sua vez, aborda a presença de uma vertente barroca na poesia contemporânea, através da análise da lírica armorial de Ariano Suassuna. Já, no quinto

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

Este começo de ano traz novos desafios e promete ares prósperos a Encontros Bibli. Com este número, iniciamos uma nova etapa: passamos da periodicidade semestral para quadrimestral. Além disto, a revista continua seu processo de internacionalização, contando com colaborações de um corpo editorial e com autores renomados da Ciência da Informação mundial. Combinado com a internacionalização e com nova periodicidade, continuamos mantendo nosso foco no compromisso com a qualidade. Em relação aos índices métricos da Encontros Bibli, tivemos um aumento de 13% nas citações de nossos artigos (43,69 no último ano, uma média de 1,72 citações por artigo, e de 1,53 artigos por autoria. Tivemos ainda os seguintes indicadores de presença acadêmica: índice-h = 12 e índice-g = 18. Nossa capa desta edição traz a ponte Hercílio Luz, símbolo de Florianópolis e do Estado de Santa Catarina. Além do inestimável valor histórico, e da beleza da combinação de design e engenharia, vale observá-la como um impressionante produto materializado a partir do uso de informações e de conhecimento aplicado, e como uma metáfora. Pontes conectam lugares, pessoas, tecnologias, redes, organizações, informações, registros do conhecimento e mundos. Pontes são meios, tangíveis ou intangíveis, que unem o real ou o virtual. Pontes virtuais, ou eletrônicas transportam o intangível, encurtam caminhos e aproximam as informações de seus usuários. São pontes informacionais. Pontes informacionais podem ser instrumentos de comunicação científica que nos dão rápido e facilitado acesso a estudos, pesquisas, tecnologias, modelos e conceitos ligados à Ciência da Informação.

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. Obras fundamentais foram lançadas enriquecendo os tí­tulos de nossa pesquisa acadêmica. Foram resenhados os livros sobre as matrizes do pensamento, de Lucia Santaella, sobre arquitetura urbana, de Lucrécia Ferrara, sobre a obra de Kellreuter fazem parte dessa galeria. Na sessão de projeto, Paulo Angerami apresenta sua pesquisa fotográfica com câmeras. Embora o projeto editorial de Galáxia tivesse concebido a sessão de notí­cias para o relato de eventos culturais, cientí­ficos e artí­sticos, a revista não se deixa de noticiar as perdas de pessoas ilustres. Com profundo pesar, publicamos aqui a notí­cia do falecimento de Thomas Sebeok, notável semioticista e membro do Comitê Cientí­fico de Galáxia. Sua partida pode nos privar de sua companhia mas não de seus ensinamentos dos quais jamais poderemos abdicar. Irene Machado Editora Cientí­fica

    destacados anteriormente, conforme mencionado, recebemos 2 trabalhos de cunho multidisciplinar que se alinham com a proposta de expansão do escopo e áreas de atuação da revista. De carater multidisciplinar, o trabalho “CONSEQUÊNCIAS DO ARCABOUÇO REGULATÓRIO DO BIODIESEL BRASILEIRO PARA AS USINAS PRODUTORAS: UMA ANÁLISE DA SITUAÇÃO DA BAHIA” conjuga um arcabouço teórico que abrage aspectos legais, regulatórios e da própria administração da produção, com o intuito de discutir as consequências que o arcabouço regulatório do Programa Nacional de Produção e Uso do Biodiesel (PNPB tem para a formação de uma cadeia de valor na produção de biodiesel no estado da Bahia.Por fim, destacamos o trabalho “ESTUDO DE VIABILIDADE TÉCNICA DA APLICAÇÃO DO MÉTODO DE SÍSMICA DE REFRAÇÃO PARA OTIMIZAÇÃO DE PROVÁVEIS OBRAS DE AMPLIAÇÃO DO IFMG ̶ CAMPUS AVANÇADO PIUMHI”,  cujo objetivo foi estudar a viabilidade técnica de aplicação do método de sísmica de refração para otimização de prováveis obras de ampliação do IFMG – Campus Avançado Piumhi e que representou um novo desafio para o corpo editorial da revista. Abordando aspectos da Engenharia Civíl como a aplicação do método geofísico denominado sísmica de refração, que contribuem para o entendimento sistêmico do comportamento do solo, o trabalho nos mostrou as dificuldades que enfrentaremos nesta nova fase da revista. No entanto, nos mostrou, também, por meio da qualidade do trabalho, como esta expansão pode ser benéfica à propagação da ciência, seja ela em qual área for.Novamente agradecemos a colaboração de toda equipe que não mediram esforços para a concretização deste novo número e, de forma especial, aos autores, pelo conteúdo diversificado e atual, contribuindo assim para o fortalecimento, democratização e disseminação do conhecimento científico.Boa leitura a todosBruno César de Melo MoreiraEditor Chefe - ForScience: revista científica do IFMG

    Full Text Available Desde 2014, a Em Tese, revista editada pelos discentes do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Sociologia Política (PPGSP da Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC, vem passando por uma série de reformulações estruturais. 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. A crescente respeitabilidade da revista no meio acadêmico, medida principalmente pela diversificação e amplitude nacional dos artigos recebidos, é prova do acerto dessa estratégia. Neste tocante em particular, a presente edição da revista traz pela primeira vez um artigo assinado por um pesquisador estrangeiro – no caso, Jorge Botelho

    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.

    Issues of inequality and distribution of different sorts constitute salient aspects in the agenda of development studies. As globalisation unfolds new indicators are needed in order to update the capacity identify, capture, and interpret its dynamics and asymmetries. Notwithstanding the many changes in the world’s socio-economic landscape, Africa, in particular, remains a marginal geographical and cognitive space. This research deals with a particular segment of the development studies “academic value chain”. Unlike much of the contemporary work on scientometrics, this paper does not primarily analyse publications or citations. Our data regards the composition and characteristics of editorial boards in the field under analysis. (Author)

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

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

  15. Best estimate probabilistic safety assessment results for the Westinghouse Advanced Loop Tester (WALT)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Wang, Guoqiang; Xu, Yiban; Oelrich, Robert L. Jr.; Byers, William A.; Young, Michael Y.; Karoutas, Zeses E.

    2011-01-01

    The nuclear industry uses the probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) technique to improve safety decision making and operation. The methodology evaluates the system reliability, which is defined as the probability of system success, and the postulated accident/problematic scenarios of systems for the nuclear power plants or other facilities. The best estimate probabilistic safety assessment (BE-PSA) method of evaluating system reliability and postulated problematic scenarios will produce more detailed results of interest, such as best estimated reliability analysis and detailed thermal hydraulic calculations using a sub-channel or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code. The methodology is typically applied to reactors, but can also be applied to any system such as a test facility. In this paper, a BE-PSA method is introduced and used for evaluating the Westinghouse Advanced Loop Tester (WALT). The WALT test loop at the George Westinghouse Science and Technology Center (STC), which was completed in October 2005, is designed to be utilized to model the top grid span of a hot rod in a fuel assembly under the Pressurizer Water Reactor (PWR) normal operating conditions. In order to safely and successfully operate the WALT test loop and correctly use the WALT experimental data, it is beneficial to perform a probabilistic safety assessment and analyze the thermal hydraulic results for the WALT loop in detail. Since October 2005, a number of test runs have been performed on the WALT test facility designed and fabricated by Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. This paper briefly describes the BE-PSA method and performs BE-PSA for the WALT loop. Event trees linked with fault trees embedding thermal hydraulic analysis models, such as sub-channel and/or CFD models, were utilized in the analyses. Consequently, some selected useful experimental data and analysis results are presented for future guidance on WALT and/or other similar test facilities. For example, finding and

  17. Professor Bennie van der Walt: a bridge between white Afrikaners and black Africans

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Y. Turaki

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available This article honours Professor Bennie van der Walt as a bridge builder between white Afrikaners and black Africans as well as a renowned Christian scholar. Historical Western colonialism in South Africa divided its citizens against each other by means of white racism and apartheid. The whites in general were pitched against the blacks on the basis of white racism and its doctrine of apartheid. This doctrine of separation of races kept the white Afrikaners from the Bantu Africans. However, apartheid as a form of political, social, cultural and religious racism is now history in South Africa. The role which Professor Van der Walt played in bridging the gap between this racial divide is highly commendable and needs to be acknowledged and appreciated, hence the primary objective of this article in honour of his 71st birthday. Furthermore, the article discusses the immense contributions of Professor Bennie van der Walt to Christian scholarship in Africa.

For both Twain and Disney, this fascination grew out of their small-town, midwestern boyhoods, where avid reading and fantasy play helped stave off boredom and fill emotional gaps for both of them.

    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.

    Distributed Systems Engineering has proved a valuable resource for those involved in the applied aspects of distributed and networked systems engineering. However, even during the life of the journal, what was once a niche area of research has undergone tremendous development, both technically and academically. The emphasis of the subject has shifted to such an extent that the positioning of the journal is now inappropriate. This then is the final issue of Distributed Systems Engineering, as the journal ceases publication at the end of 1999. The publication of Distributed Systems Engineering also represented a major step forward for three of the UK's leading learned societies, in pursuing a common interest in distributed engineering. Distributed Systems Engineering has been instrumental in bringing these organizations together on a number of other issues of mutual interest. We thank all those who have submitted papers, whether published or not, during the lifetime of our journal. To our Editorial Advisory Board, Guest Editors and the many referees who have supported this endeavour we owe a special debt of gratitude. And of course we are grateful to the readers of Distributed Systems Engineering for their support and for many kind comments during the past six years. To all of you we say: your many and various contributions have helped to make the journal an important source of information for those involved in the practical engineering aspects of distributed and networked systems. The publishers would like to thank the Editors, Morris Sloman and David Hutchison, and the members of the Editorial Board, whose commitment to the journal has resulted in the publication of consistently high quality research, including a number of commissioned special issues in areas of topical interest. As a service to the distributed systems community, the full electronic archive of the journal will be maintained, with free availability to all, at http://www.iop.org/Journals/ds David

    Blackburn, D. A.

    . The effect of this is two fold: reviewers are drawn from the metrological community and know that a high standard is required, while authors know that good work dealing with fine measurements will be read and appreciated by those who know the field. Articles in the third category have appeared regularly in Metrologia. The continuing association with the CIPM is well exemplified, in this issue, by the article from Dr Hugh Preston-Thomas - President of the CCT, Vice-President of the CIPM and a former editor - on The International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) and by "News from the BIPM". Last year, a major article described the new international electrical reference standards. Only the fourth category of article presents problems: with honourable exceptions - the 1987 supplement by Prof. George Gillies on the Newtonian Gravitational Constant, for example - the reviews promised in 1965 are absent. As the new editor my thoughts have come to centre on the matter of reviews. This, I find, is not a unique consideration, for my predecessor raised the matter in his own introductory editorial some years ago. The intention of the original Editorial Board was: 'Review articles will be published . . . in order that both the specialist and the nonspecialist may have a convenient and readily available means of surveying the rapidly changing situation in fundamental metrology'. This seems a wholly admirable intention and one that should not be forgotten. I ask potential authors to think about reviews on topics of current interest and to contact me or any member of the Editorial Board to discuss possibilities. I'd also be interested to have the names of individuals I could approach in the name of Metrologia with a view to asking them to write on a particular topic. Intending authors will have all the support - moral rather than financial, I fear - that the editorial office can provide. Finally, I ask readers to note that the pages of Metrologia are open to all.

    Smith, Maudy Th; Groenewald, Marizeth

    2012-12-01

    Yeast taxonomy and systematics have in recent years been dealt with intensively primarily by a small group of individual researchers with particular expertise. Amongst these was Johannes P. van der Walt, who had a major role in shaping our current understanding of yeast biodiversity and taxonomy. Van der Walt based his taxonomic studies not only on available cultures, but also by going into the field to isolate yeasts from various substrates. This pioneering work led to the discovery of many new genera and species, which were deposited in the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures (CBS) collections for future studies in taxonomy, genomics, and industrial uses. These treasures collected during more than 60 years provide an outstanding legacy to the yeast community and will continue to exist in his absence. This contribution provides a comprehensive overview of the current nomenclatural and taxonomic status of the yeast genera and species introduced by van der Walt during his career.

    This paper describes an innovative approach to energy conservation that has been started at WALT DISNEY WORLD. The program that was established was designed to heighten the awareness of energy usage in our Management and Cast Members, establish a method for recognizing and rewarding positive energy conservation efforts and, most importantly, keeping the effort simple and fun. Two programs work together to meet this goal: Utility Efficiency Awards and the Environmental Circles of Excellence. The Utility Efficiency Awards are given to the top areas that have demonstrated a reduction in utility consumption relative to the same period in prior years. More importantly, a report is generated that shows a best-to-worst ranking. Relying on the idea that {open_quotes}nobody wants to be on the bottom of the list{close_quotes}, conservation is enhanced by focusing attention on improving efficiency. To encourage direct cast member involvement in our environmental program, the Environmental Circles of Excellence were created. These groups, made up of hourly and salaried cast members, discuss their location`s environmental commitments, set goals and implement programs. This paper describes these initiatives in detail and presents some initial results that have heightened the awareness of energy conservation at WALT DISNEY WORLD.

    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.

The vicious circle can derive into a virtuous circle, a means to reach and apprehend transculturalism. The texts, authors and genres approached do not necessarily have to limit themselves to the authors canonically commended to the occidental Parnassus. More often than not, genres, authors and mass media pulled over the margins of the shores of high culture have a wider impact. Object of attention can and should also be artists in different platforms, such as cinema, comic, television, music, internet, video game console, and even smartphone devices. The journal will also welcome didactic and pedagogical studies in Humanities (both theoretical and practical aspects; interviews to figures who have a say in order to throw some light, without dazzling any of us either, on the seas that we are determined to sail from today onwards; and finally, book reviews which deal with relevant current publications, that we prefer imbibed with critique and broad-minded perspective rather than descriptive and over simplistic. It has been stated that Life —and therefore also a journal’s Life— is the combined result of Fate and Need, in relation to parameters and factors unknown to humans. We think that the Need that Littera Aperta was born existed. In addition, we know that it is possible to build Fate together with work and excitement and, last but not least, with a

  11. Applications of heat pipes for HVAC dehumidification at Walt Disney World

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Allen, P.J.; Dinh, K.

    1993-01-01

    This paper presents the theory and application of heat pipes for HVAC dehumidification purposes. In HVAC applications, a heat pipe is used as a heat exchanger that transfers heat from the return air directly to the supply air. The air is pre-cooled entering the cooling coil and reheated using the same heat removed from the return air. While consuming no energy, the heat pipe lets the evaporator coil operate at a lower temperature, increasing the moisture removal capabilities of the HVAC system by 50% to 100%. WALT DISNEY WORLD is currently testing several heat pipe applications ranging from 1 to 240 tons. The applications include (1) water attractions (2) museums/artifacts areas (3) resort guest rooms and (4) locker rooms. Actual energy usage and relative humidity reductions are shown to determine the effectiveness of the heat pipe as an energy efficient method of humidity control

  8. "Man's words" and manly comradeship: language, politics, and homosexuality in Walt Whitman's works.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jeffs, W P

    1992-01-01

    Critical assessments of Walt Whitman's works either emphasize his sexual themes while ignoring his political ideas or they focus on the poet's politics but ignore his poetics of corporeality. Recent studies that do discuss both politics and sexuality in Whitman's works do not devote much attention if any to the poet's theory of language as it appears in his An American Primer. This essay explores the complex intersections among sexuality, politics, and language in Whitman's works, illustrating how the poet consistently correlated his linguistic, sexual, and political metaphors, constantly relating the health and the sexual potency of the male body with the power of language, the efficacy of literature, and the strength of the states in the United States. Underlying these multiple metaphors and poetic intentions is the poet's homosexual vision. It constitutes the basis of his linguistic theory, his hope of an ideal democratic union, and his plea for sexual equality. To Whitman, America needed male-to-male friendships to free it from materialistic vulgarities and to ensure its perpetuation.

  9. Czesław Miłosz and Walt Whitman: translation as an authentic presence

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Arent Van Nieukerken

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Miłosz’s later poetry attempts to overcome the (postmodernist gap between the author as a textual effect and the subject of autobiography. An important stage on this road was his poetry book (in fact, a long poem in its own right Nieobjęta ziemia [Unattainable Earth]. Its form is clearly dialogical. The collection mixes authorial poems with vari­ous examples of “heteroglossia”. Particularly striking is the prominent presence of Walt Whitman’s poetry. Whitmanian poetics assume that fully experiencing reality presupposes the existence of a community. The task of poetry consists in conceiving artistic structures that, when they are “concretized”, allow the reader to participate in such a community. Nieobjęta ziemia tries to come to terms with the Whitmanian challenge. The poetical subject in this somewhat modified example of the modern “sylva rerum” experiences its link with the “other” by an individual reception of artifacts that point to the communal essence of humanity. Nieobjęta ziemia , realizing community in the field of poetics “performatively”, incorporates these artifacts into the text. Particularly important seems to be the role played by poems translated by Miłosz himself (they are explicitly labeled as translations, and that represent the human condition called by Whitman “en masse”.

    2001-02-01

    As the journal advances into its 33rd volume of publication and into the new millennium, significant developments in information technology have allowed restructuring of the format, review and publishing procedures of the journal, Pathology. This in turn enables rapid publication of timely and significant articles of interest to both diagnostic and research pathologists. There is an emphasis to develop the educational and professional development aspects of the journal while maintaining a rigorous peer review process to ensure publication of high quality research and review articles. A number of changes that will facilitate these processes are outlined. The journal is also available on-line on the web in PDF format and there are considerations made to further exploit this avenue of communication for the publication of supplementary material. The Editor and Editorial Board encourages Fellows of the Royal College of Pathologists, readers and authors to communicate their views on these and other future developments with the Editorial Office.

    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

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!

Specifically, certain features of editorial headlines and also their important role in monitoring and directing readers’ attention have made the interface between the linguistic analysis of newspaper editorial headlines and teaching of EFL as a relevant issue in language teaching. Through conducting a contrastive textual analysis of selected headlines, culled from the editorials of the English newspaper, The New York Times, and those of Persian newspaper, Tehran Times, the present study aimed at exploring the kind of textual and rhetorical strategies the two newspapers used for propagating their preferred ideologies. The results of the study indicated that headlines in the two papers presented a subjective attitude of the writers (newspapers toward the topic.

    appreciation of the development of our wide-ranging discipline over the last half century. Some readers may feel that one or two subjects have not been represented, and for that I can only apologise. We did ask for contributions to several other topics (for example radiation metrology and optical techniques) but inevitably there were authors who for various reasons were unable to meet the deadline. Inevitably we will also have missed contributions from excellent potential authors (who satisfied the age criterion!). As Guest Editor I must bear the responsibility for those omissions. While page limits do not permit me to discuss the contributions to this issue individually I would like to mention the first contribution by Dr J E (Bob) Burns. Dr Burns was on the Editorial Board in the early sixties working with the second Editor, Professor Sir Joseph Rotblat. Both in his article and in personal communications Dr Burns has emphasized the important role of Professor Rotblat in the early years. I did write to Professor Rotblat seeking a contribution from him but, sadly, received a reply saying that he was not well enough to contribute `at present'; he died a few weeks later at the age of 96 years (please refer to www.pugwash.org for tributes from Mikhail Gorbachev, Kofi Annan and many others). Dr Burns wrote a short note to me shortly after his death including the following comment which is reproduced below: Although many people have contributed to the success of PMB over the last 50 years it was Rotblat's restless energy, power of persuasion and already existing fame (he was well known both scientifically and to the public at the time) that enabled him to rescue the journal from an early death. After discussions with colleagues around the UK, including Dr Burns, and with the Editorial Board, we all felt that it would be highly appropriate to dedicate this anniversary issue to the memory of Professor Rotblat.

    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.

    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.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Laura López Peña

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available This article analyzes 19th-century US poet Walt Whitman’s vindication of “adhesiveness” as imperative to the formation of a social democracy which might heal the neighborly hatreds of a divided United States and bind the nation together at a time of violent fragmentation and Civil War. The article examines Whitman’s location of the possibility of politics and democracy at the interpersonal level, and connects the poet’s political project in his 1860 “Calamus” with that in the 1865 “Drum-Taps”, studying how Whitman’s belief in the uniting capacity of love between men remained constant even as he was witnessing the tragic consequences of a four-year Civil War which would widen even more the irreconcilable gulfs between different Americans.

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

    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.

    With this issue, beginning Volume 121, the editorial team shifts from the strong leadership of David Watson to a team under my direction. Approaching 125 years of publication, the Journal of Abnormal Psychology has earned its place as the preeminent outlet for research in psychopathology. With gratitude to the newly assembled team of associate editors (AEs), consulting editors, and ad hoc reviewers, I look forward to guiding the journal through this next term. Nine well-respected scholars have agreed to serve as AEs: Timothy Brown, Laurie Chassin, Jeff Epstein, Jutta Joormann, Pamela Keel, Kate Keenan, Scott Lilienfeld, Angus MacDonald, and Michael Young. The new team is dedicated to working tirelessly to maintain and enhance the journal's esteemed tradition of excellence. Given the well-established strengths of the journal, I will not suggest any fundamental changes. PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved.

    For the last 12 years, Measurement Science and Technology has awarded a Best Paper prize. The Editorial Board of the journal believes that such a prize is an opportunity to thank authors for submitting their work, and serves as an integral part of the on-going quality review of the journal. An Editorial Board working party, comprising Patrick Gill (Chairman), Ralph Tatam and David Birch, was convened to determine a single contributed paper describing new and significant work, well aligned with the measurement scope of the journal, and presented in clear and rigorous form. They received a number of recommendations from the Editorial and International Advisory Board Members, and they would like to record their thanks to the Members for these recommendations, as they form an all-important first stage in the assessment process. There were responses from some 12 Board Members. In total, there were 31 papers nominated. To aid the process, additional information in the form of the 2003 MST papers top rated by referees, and the top papers ranked by most electronic accesses, was accessed. Reviews, and papers which included a Board Member as an author, were automatically excluded. From the totality of nominations and working party deliberations, there emerged a clear winner. Thus the paper recommended by the working party for the MST Best Paper Award for 2003 is: 'Extension of the torsional crystal viscometer to measurements in the time domain' by Richard F Hafer and Arno Laesecke, 14 663-673 (2003) This paper describes a significant advance in viscosity measurement using torsional vibration in piezoelectric rods. The method reported here demonstrates the use of free-decay time-domain measurements as opposed to the more established steady-state forced-mode resonance technique. The time domain technique is faster and more sensitive, with the potential for improved accuracy due to the lack of large time constants necessary for the interpretation of forced mode data.

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.

    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.

  6. 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

  12. 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

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.

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.

    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

  16. EDITORIAL: New developments for Nanotechnology

    Welland, Mark

    2007-01-01

    In this first issue of Nanotechnology for 2007 the journal has taken another step forward in its extraordinary growth and development of the past 5 years. The reader will notice two important changes that have been introduced primarily in response to the exponential rise in submissions to the journal: the contents have been restructured into sections and publication will now be weekly. These latest changes, however, are not the only ones that have been made to the journal and its service to authors and readers. A modern journal has many tools at its disposal that journals of even 10 years ago simply did not. Electronic submission and refereeing, web-based publication, author services such as free electronic reprints and an email alerting service, to name but a few. Published by a learned society, Nanotechnology has constantly responded to the needs of authors and readers alike drawing upon the extensive experience and tools of IOP Publishing. Nanotechnology is of course an exploding field and it is therefore perhaps unsurprising to see a growth in the number of submissions to the journal. However, an inspection of the data surrounding submissions over the past 4 years reveals a disproportionate growth in the success of the journal itself. In 2002 there were 419 submitted papers of which 208 were accepted and published in 6 issues. In 2005 we received 75% more submissions over 2002, had a reduced acceptance rate of 44% and published 12 issues. 2006 showed, in just one year, a growth over 2005 of greater than 50% in the number of submissions. This growth of course does present challenges. The paper issues of the journal have been increasing in mass, hence a move to weekly publishing, and the sheer number of papers means that finding an article on a specific topic can be difficult for readers and authors, hence the move to sections. Sections will also help the Editorial Board in ensuring that the journal has a balanced portfolio of papers reflecting the broad

  17. EDITORIAL: Permanent revolution - or evolution?

    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

    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

Os artigos da professora Gladys Ceretta Soria, da Escuela Universitária de Bibliotecología y Ciências Afines, da Universidad de la República de Montevideo e da professora Mara Eliane Fonseca Rodrigues do Departamento de Ciência da Informação da Universidade Federal Fluminense explicitam algumas destas transformações sob óticas diferentes. O trabalho de Ceretta Soria enfoca a relação entre bibliotecários e usuários nas bibliotecas universitárias, salientando a necessidade de fortalecer este vínculo. Esta reflexão vem enriquecer a troca de idéias em uma área da Biblioteconomia pouco explorada no Brasil. O artigo de Rodrigues traz uma reflexão sobre o ensino de Biblioteconomia em nosso país, apontando para a necessidade de implementar, nestes cursos, uma educação transformadora. Segundo a autora, esta transformação é possível através da interação ensino-pesquisa. Num momento em que os cursos de Biblioteconomia e Ciência da Informação brasileiros questionam o status quo, este artigo relata uma experiência de ensino interessante nesse sentido. Clarice Fortkamp Caldin, professora do Departamento de Ciência da Informação da UFSC, aborda a literatura infantil analisando o ponto de vista de diferentes autores. Mostra, além disso, que os textos infantis contemporâneos têm compromisso com a brasilidade e sugere a integração de bibliotecários e professores na Hora do Conto.

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

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

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

Each article can have more than one tag and each tag can be used in more than one article. A network of tags can be defined whose edges are all possible pairs of tags in each article.

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

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

    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.

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.

    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.

    Neural engineering has grown substantially in the last few years and it is time to review the progress of the first journal in this field. Journal of Neural Engineering (JNE) is a quarterly publication that started in 2004. The journal is now in its third volume and eleven issues, consisting of 114 articles in total, have been published since its launch. The editorial processing times have been kept to a minimum, the receipt to first decision time is 41 days, on average, and the time from receipt to publication has been maintained below three months. It is also worth noting that it is free to publish in Journal of Neural Engineering—there are no author fees—and once published the articles are free online for the first month. The journal has been listed in Pubmed® since 2005 and has been accepted by ISI® in 2006. Who is reading Journal of Neural Engineering? The number of readers of JNE has increased significantly from 8050 full-text downloads in 2004 to 14 900 in 2005 and the first seven months of 2006 have already seen 12 800 downloads. The top users in 2005 were the Microsoft Corporation, Stanford University and the University of Michigan. The list of top ten users also includes non-US institutions: University of Toronto, University of Tokyo, Hong Kong Polytechnic, National Library of China and University College London, reflecting the international flavor of the journal. What are the hot topics in neural engineering? Based on the number of downloads and citations for 2004-2005, the top three topics are: (1) Brain-computer interfaces (2) Visual prostheses (3) Neural modelling Several other topics such as microelectrode arrays, neural signal processing, neural dynamics and neural circuit engineering are also in the top ten. Where are Journal of Neural Engineering articles cited? JNE articles have reached a wide audience and have been cited in of some of the best journals in physiology and neuroscience such as Nature Neuroscience, Journal of Neuroscience

    The aim of the present study was to comment on the possible existence of editorial prejudice among the editors of scientific journals from Northern countries against Southern authors. We highlight that a study using bibliometric methods documented an important imbalance in terms of the international scientific production of health researchers from high-income countries (the "North") and those from low and middle-income countries (the "South"). In a survey of Brazilian researchers, three in every four blamed this imbalance, at least in part, on prejudice among international editors. This is supported by the fact that a very small percentage of editorial board members of international journals come from the South. Although prejudice can explain part of the imbalance, there are also specific measures that may increase the likelihood of a paper from the South being accepted in international journals. These include the need to invest in the quality of the written text, and to show empathy with editors and readers, emphasizing the contribution of the manuscript to the international literature. Finally, we discuss whether research carried out in the South should be published in national or international journals, and suggest that there are at least six dimensions to this choice. These include language and target audience; type of contribution to knowledge; generalizability; citation index; speed of publication; and open access. The rapid growth in the number of Brazilian contributions to the international health literature shows that editorial prejudice, although often present, can be effectively offset by research with solid methodology and good-quality presentation.

    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

    Physica status solidi was founded in 1961 by a number of eminent solid state physicists as an attempt to overcome the iron curtain, which then separated East and West, at least in the field of science. Since that time our world has changed quite a bit, and so have the boundary conditions of science publishing. However, one thing has not changed: then as now, the general policy and development of a respectable scientific journal should be determined by a board of independent scientists, who volunteer to assume responsibility for the scientific content of the journal, to assure a fair and critical peer review process for all submitted manuscripts, and, in cases of conflict, to finally decide which papers will be published and which will not.As a matter of fact, an international Board of Editors which consists of scientists coming from different countries and continents, with a good reputation in their respective community, and without any conflict of interest with the Publisher of the journal is, in my opinion, these days more important than ever. As our daily scientific work becomes increasingly specialized, but at the same time also increasingly interdisciplinary, we are more and more forced to trust the quality and reliability of published scientific results in the literature, without really having a chance to come to an independent opinion on our own. This is one of the reasons why the many recent cases of plagiarism, scientific misconduct, or outright fraud have caused such a high level of public awareness. It is quite clear that without a serious peer review there would be an even larger number of such cases in the literature, and that without the responsible action taken by concerned Journal Editors, many of the revealed cases probably would have remained under the carpet.It is, therefore, a particular pleasure for me to introduce to you on the following pages the current Editorial Board of physica status solidi (a) in the form of a brief curriculum vitae, a

    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.

How grateful we are to be able to help guide this important outreach function of the Financial Therapy Association. Even though we get caught up in the day-to-day routines of teaching, conducting research, providing service to the profession, and working diligently to produce a world-class journal, we want every reader to know that we are honored to serve as editors and to be, in a minor sense, ambassadors for the financial therapy field.

    Full Text Available This last 2011 issue of Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching brings together four papers dealing with the role of affective factors and different aspects of the knowledge of grammar. In the first of these, Adriana Biedroń reports the results of a study which explored the personality predictors of foreign language aptitude, adopting as a point of reference the Big Five model proposed by Costa and McCrae (1992 and using multiple regression to tap the impact of Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism. Subsequently, Małgorzata Baran-Łucarz investigates the relationship between perceived and actual levels of secondary school learners’ command of foreign language pronunciation and their level of classroom anxiety, drawing upon a combination of quantitative and qualitative data for this purpose. In the next contribution, Mojgan Rashtchi and Mahnaz Afzali seek to determine whether the use of activities aimed at raising the awareness of advanced learners of English of the features of spoken grammar aids their comprehension of real-life conversation, as well as to examine their attitudes towards such activities. Finally, Marcin Jaroszek describes the findings of a longitudinal study which focused on the use of conjunctions by advanced learners of English over a three-year period, investigated in relation to the reference level (i.e., native-speaker discourse and teacher talk in English as a foreign language classes, the type of exposure and instructional procedures.

    The IBA conference has taken place in different countries from all over the world. It started in the United States in 1973, and since then has been held biennially without interruption, becoming the reference meeting on ion beam analysis and related methods and techniques. In its 17th edition, two Spanish laboratories, one from the Universidad de Sevilla and one from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid had the honour and responsibility of organizing the conference. These two laboratories are, so far, the only ones in the country equipped with accelerators dedicated to ion beam analysis; the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville and the Centro de Micro-Análisis de Materiales (CMAM) in Madrid. We took up this task enthusiastically, conscious that Spain has only very recently been equipped with IBA techniques and that this event would highlight to the scientific community of our country the importance and involvement of IBA techniques in new scientific and technological developments. The conference was held at the Melia Sevilla Hotel in Seville, Spain from 26 June-1 July 2005.

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

Although some may choose not to see it, Mao’s portrait continues to adorn Tiananmen Gate, as well as banknotes of all deno...

    For once, this issue of China Perspectives is not a special feature made of a collection of articles. We have decided on this occasion to publish a rare and previously unreleased document that narrates and illustrates the rivalries, struggles, and political campaigns that were carried out in Beijing from the summer of 1975 to the spring of 1976 and reached their climax with several demonstrations at Tiananmen Square within the first few days of April 1976. While the Ninth Party Congress in Ap...

    Full Text Available This volume offers the reader two articles and an interview with which to engage. Aligned with the objectives of Reconceptualizing Educational Research Methodologies the authors variously unfold and problematize conventional qualitative research philosophies and practices in unexpected ways. By undertaking and highlighting how transdisciplinary work might disrupt objective truth claims formed from particular research ideals - the authors avoid generalisations and glorification of their research data. Though the articles approach research practices differently, what unites them is the capacity to capture complexity within entangled assemblages of forces and intensities in which the individual subject is disrupted and rethought. Collective assemblages of desire are created by writing together, thinking together, and creating together - the yet not known. Dynamic elements work together to connect multiple literacies, artistic photos and transgressive writings that evoke liveliness and rhizomatic thinking.

    Full Text Available Ninguém ignora a grave crise pela qual está passando o sacerdócio ministerial. Muitos julgam que o sacerdócio, assim como é atualmente exercido na Igreja Católica; seria pura e simplesmente um retorno ao sacerdócio pagão e judaico. A verdade revelada de: que Cristo é o único sacerdote da Nova Aliança, de que ele terminou com o culto sacerdotal do Antigo Testamento, de que o povo de Deus é um povo sacerdotal, poderia levar a crer que depois de Cristo não há mais lugar para o sacerdote ministerial.

    Full Text Available A Revista Ciências e Saúde, com muita satisfação, objetiva nesta edição além da veiculação de excelentes produções científicas, compartilhar com nossos leitores, os avanços tecnológicos e científicos desta Instituição de Saúde, no sentido de dar a conhecer os caminhos trilhados a partir de uma concepção sistêmica de saúde que percebe a integralidade humana do paciente, não somente como um portador da doença, mas como um representante da vida, que merece a tradução de todas as instâncias de sua existência. Nessa perspectiva, vale ressaltar, que os referidos avanços surgiram a partir do ideal (sonho de um sistema de saúde mais humanitário e eficiente, assim como o grande poeta Fernando Pessoa versa: Deus quer, o homem sonha e a obra nasce. O Hospital Escola da Faculdade de Medicina de Itajubá, que atende sistematicamente 16 municípios da região do Sapucaí, aumentou consideravelmente a demanda de atendimentos que extrapolam a referida região, vindo pacientes até de cidades próximas de grandes centros urbanos de Minas Gerais. Esta concreta verticalização da função social na área da saúde, retrata as diversas conquistas referentes à expansão do Hospital Escola, que ocorreram não somente na contratação de profissionais de destaque nacional em diversas áreas, como também numa reestruturação radical e conceitual de uma infraestrutura voltada à ampliar e melhorar os setores existentes, bem como, implantar e viabilizar novos serviços, com excelência científica e tecnológica. Nesse contexto, pode-se destacar: Centro de Medicina Diagnóstica (Radiologia Digital, Tomógrafo Multi-slice 128 canais, mamografia, ultrassonografia, ecocardiograma, ecotransesofágico , exames laboratoriais; Unidade de Terapia Intensiva (2 UTIs para Adultos; UTI Neonatal; Centro de Hemodiálise; Laboratórios; Novas instalações administrativas e reformas de ampliação e modernização nos departamentos de Clínica Médica e Clinica Cirúrgica.

    La comunicació -i, més concretament, la informació que transporta- és a la base de tot ordre social. Quan els especialistes analitzen els mecanismes de suport que han articulat aquesta comunicació al llarg de la història de la humanitat distingeixen quatre grans etapes, edats o "eres": l'era de l'oralitat, l'era de l'escriptura, l'era de la impremta i, avui, l'era de les tecnologies de la comunicació. Cada nova era no substitueix l'anterior, sinó que s'hi sobreposa i, en fer-ho, augmenta el gruix de l'aparell comunicatiu -el grau d'informació disponible, el nombre de beneficiaris d'aquesta informació- i, en conseqüència, la complexitat i la densitat de les relacions socials que aquest aparell facilita: la xarxa es fa cada cop més espessa, més rica.

    La política i el dret depenen dels fluxos comunicatius. Per això, la manera de fer política i les mateixes formes jurídiques s'han vist modificades al llarg de la història en funció del diferent tipus d'instrumental comunicatiu del que hom disposava. El salt de l'oralitat a l'escriptura, o de l'escriptura en suports únics a la reproducció massiva a través de la impremta, han marcat canvis culturals les plenes conseqüències dels quals no han estat visibles fins després de llargs períodes de temps. Avui som conscients que estem vivint, amb l'explosió de les tecnologies de la informació i la comunicació que té lloc a finals del segle XX, un procés de transformació social del qual només som capaços d'albirar els primers llampecs. Com diu el professor Eben Moglen en la conferència que va impartir a la UOC el curs passat -i que transcrivim en aquest número de la revista- "en molt poc temps han passat algunes coses molt importants [...]; la cultura de finals del segle XX ha estat molt enfeinada anticipant el seu propi futur".

A través de este método, investigadores en la Universidad de Oxford lograron estimar que un 8,2% (7,1%–9,2% del genoma humano es funcional (Rands et al., 2014.

    Full Text Available Prezado leitor, É com muita alegria e satisfação que anunciamos a edição do volume 17, número 34 de 2012 da Encontros Bibli. Nesta edição, tivemos o privilégio de gerar a capa da revista na Imprensa Oficial do Estado de Santa Catarina, utilizando a moldura de impressão do Diário Oficial do Estado e alguns elementos gráficos fornecidos pela gestão e pela equipe da instituição. Em relação à produção intelectual, este número conta com dez artigos, um ensaio e uma resenha. Os artigos foram incorporados partindo de aspectos centrais da Ciência da Informação passando posteriormente para temas mais específicos; a edição inicia-se com estudos epistemológicos: “A evolução da Ciência da Informação a partir de conceitos-sinônimos empregados na obra Ciência da informação ou informática”, no qual são evidenciados os termos considerados relevantes e que dão independência a esta ciência frente a Biblioteconomia; e segue com a linguagem documentária a partir da visão dos usuários dentro do escopo do processo classificatório encontrado na Biblioteconomia e na Ciência da Informação, que trabalha com os conceitos de garantia literária, a garantia estrutural e a garantia cultural, intitulado “Construção de linguagens documentárias em sistemas de recuperação da informação: a importância da garantia do usuário”. Na sequência, são apresentados três estudos que tratam do tema bibliotecas, o primeiro com questões relacionadas à identificação e constituição da micobiota aérea de bibliotecas públicas no município de Fortaleza, estado do Ceará, Brasil; o segundo explora as definições e as peculiaridades que constituem os documentos eletrônicos, suas vantagens e aplicações, incluindo como as bibliotecas universitárias tratam suas políticas de desenvolvimento de coleções para documentos eletrônicos; e o terceiro enfoca o tema de formação e desenvolvimento de coleções em bibliotecas universitárias com a análise de artigos da base de dados Wilson Library Literature and Information Science Full Text. Na continuação, é apresentada uma análise e discussão das informações arquivísticas, obtidas a partir do Sistema de Informações para o Ensino, da Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, no módulo de registro e alterações de projetos, no que se refere à autenticidade e à fidedignidade destas informações; e; outro trabalho atrelado à preservação digital, apresentado como um problema real a ser solucionado pelas instituições, principalmente aquelas que têm por obrigação legal a manutenção de documentos em longo prazo, seja para atendimento a demandas do cidadão, seja para preservação da história institucional, relatado no artigo “Metodologia para implantação de programas de preservação de documentos digitais a longo prazo”. Na mesma linha de informação e preservação digital, temos o livro digital, que nos dias atuais começa a ganhar espaço junto aos leitores; o trabalho “A arquitetura do livro digital na plataforma Google: um estudo exploratório” observa que as editoras digitais estão pensando em preservar as características da obra em sua versão impressa. Concluindo os artigos, contamos com dois estudos; o primeiro enfoca a era da Complexidade, que exige novas formas de realinhar o conhecimento decorrente das Ciências Contábeis, frisando o imperativo da construção de modelos que transformem o conhecimento em um ativo compartilhado por meio de ações e atos colaborativos, ilustrado pelo artigo “Wikicounting: repensando a contabilidade pela perspectiva Noética”; o segundo estudo trata de uma análise webométrica, que enfoca informações sobre Educação Ambiental frente ao que é produzido e difundido pelas páginas web brasileiras; demonstra um amplo envolvimento das esferas institucionais, governo, setor privado, universidade, e terceiro setor, que disponibilizam suas ações por meio eletrônico, conforme vislumbrado no estudo “O produtor e o conteúdo da informação na internet: um estudo sobre o tema educação ambiental em páginas e sites brasileiros”. Para a seção de ensaios, contamos com o estudo “Linked Data” – dados interligados - e interoperabilidade entre arquivos, bibliotecas e museus na web”, que parte da proposta da web semântica, que oferece a possibilidade de interligar recursos informacionais web através de “links” semânticos, permitindo aos usuários uma navegação natural e intuitiva. E, finalizando este número, temos na seção de resenha uma visão sobre a obra de José Antônio Moreiro González (Linguagens documentárias e vocabulários semânticos para a web: elementos conceituais, na qual o autor reflete sobre a evolução deste tipo de estudo e suas novas representações, como as folksonomias, web 2.0, os tesauros, as ontologias e os topic maps.

    Uma visão geral dos avanços noSimpósio de Tecnologia da Informação e Linguagem Humana

    Esta edição especial da Linguamática contém uma seleção dos artigos apresentados no 7º Simpósio de Tecnologia da Informação e Linguagem Humana (STIL 2009, que ocorreu de 8 a 11 de setembro de 2009 na Universidade de São Paulo (campus São Carlos, Brasil (http://www.nilc.icmc.usp.br/til/stil2009_English. O STIL é o evento anual de Tecnologia da Linguagem apoiado pela Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC e pela Comissão Especial de Processamento de Linguagem Natural. Este evento tem um caráter multidisciplinar, abrangendo um amplo espectro de disciplinas relacionadas à Tecnologia da Linguagem Humana, tais como Lingüística, Ciências da Computação, Psicologia, Ciência da Informação, entre outros, e tem por objetivo reunir participantes acadêmicos e da indústria que atuam nessas áreas.

    Os tópicos de interesse anunciados no Call for Papers estiveram centrados em torno dos trabalhos em tecnologia da linguagem humana em geral realizados a partir de perspectivas tão diversas como Ciências da Computação, Lingüística e Ciência da Informação, incluindo entre outros a mineração de texto, processamento da linguagem escrita e falada, a terminologia, lexicologia e lexicografia, modelagem e gestão de conhecimento e geração de linguagem natural. Foram submetidos 60 artigos longos e 26 curtos. Cada proposta foi analisada por três membros do Comitê de Programa, composto por 88 pesquisadores de 13 países e 45 instituições.

    Após um rigoroso processo de revisão 18 artigos completos e 12 curtos foram selecionados, com taxas de aceitação de 30% e 42%, respectivamente. Os autores dos artigos completos foram convidados a submeter versões estendidas e revisadas dos seus trabalhos para esta edição especial, passando por um novo processo de revisão, desta vez pelos revisores da Linguamática, que selecionaram 7 dos artigos submetidos.

    Estes artigos representam uma amostra do rico e variado trabalho apresentado no STIL e envolvem pesquisadores de instituições acadêmicas e industriais no Brasil, Portugal e França. Por exemplo, o primeiro artigo, Identificação de expressões multipalavra em domínios específicos de Aline Villavicencio et al., propõe uma abordagem para a identificação de Expressões Multipalavra, tais como compostos nominais e verbos frasais, em corpora técnicos. A proposta apresentada combina medidas de associação com informações linguísticas e de alinhamentos lexicais, e o artigo examina a influência de diversos fatores sobre o seu desempenho.

    Os dois próximos artigos são relacionados a aplicações de PLN. Em Classificação automática de textos por período literário utilizando compressão de dados através do PPM-C, Bruno Barufaldi et al. propõem a aplicação do método Prediction by Partial Matching (PPM para a tarefa de classificação de textos de acordo com períodos literários da literatura brasileira. Já Carolina Scarton e Sandra Aluísio, em Análise da inteligibilidade de textos via   ferramentas de processamento de língua natural: adaptando as métricas do Coh-Metrix para o Português, investigam a adaptação de métricas da ferramenta Coh-Metrix para o português do Brasil (Coh-Metrix-Port, primeiramente avaliando as diferenças entre textos complexos para adultos e versões mais simples para crianças e também analisando o desempenho de classificadores para discriminar textos dedicados a adultos e a crianças, que podem ser usados para avaliar a simplicidade de textos disponíveis na Web.

    O quarto artigo Caracterização e processamento de expressões temporais em português de Caroline Hagège, Jorge Baptista e Nuno Mamede também aborda a questão do tratamento de expressões, mas desta vez o foco é em expressões temporais tais como de manhã e nesta semana. Os autores propõem uma classificação para estas expressões do português e apresentam uma ferramenta de anotação delas em corpora.

    Quanto a construção de recursos linguísticos para o português, o artigo Extração de relações semânticas entre palavras a partir de um dicionário: o PAPEL e sua avaliação de Hugo Oliveira, Diana Santos e Paulo Gomes apresenta o PAPEL, um recurso lexical que contém relações entre palavras, como sinonímia, automaticamente extraídas de um dicionário através de regras, discutindo ainda uma avaliação do mesmo.

    Outra tarefa abordada neste volume é a de sumarização, no artigo Estratégias de seleção de conteúdo com base na CST (Cross-document Structure Theory para sumarização automática multidocumento de Maria Jorge e Thiago Pardo. Os autores discutem a definição, formalização e avaliação de estratégias de seleção de conteúdo para sumarização automática multidocumento com base na teoria discursiva Cross-document Structure Theory.

    Por fim a tarefa de entendimento e linguagem natural é abordada no artigo Um analisador semântico inferencialista de sentenças em linguagem natural de Vladia Pinheiro et al, onde é descrito o Analisador Semântico Inferencialista (SIA, um raciocinador semântico sobre o conteúdo inferencial de conceitos e padrões de sentenças, avaliado em um sistema de extração de informações sobre crimes.

    Full Text Available Greetings Dear readers of TOJDE, TOJDE is appeared on your screen now as Volume 9, Number: 3. This is the third issue of the year 2008. In this issue is published 1 Note for Editor, 15 articles, already 2 book reviews and this time 27 authors from 11 different countries are placed. These published articles are from Australia, Germany, Greece, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Romania, SriLanka, Turkey and USA. Notes for Editor is arrived to TOJDE from Nigeria and written by E. C. IBARA. In his paper examines the processes leading to administration of face-to-face examination in distance education with focus on the National Open University of Nigeria. It highlighted some procedures such as test development, test administration and post test administration/award procedures. Quality management initiatives provide a feasible path for incorporating distance training, whether via the Internet, audio conferencing, video conferencing, or postal delivering methods. The first article of this issue is coming from USA, from Rachel D. ECHARD and Zane L. BERGE, on “Quality Management Builds Solid Etraining”. Their paper will explore the manifestations of quality management processes on sustaining distance training in a business environment. The Second article is “Conducting A Trial of Web Conferencing Software: Why, How, And Perceptions From The Coalface”, written by Shirley REUSHLE and Birgit LOCH from The University of Southern Queensland, Australia. This paper reports on the trial of web conferencing software conducted at a regional Australian university with a significant distance population. The paper shares preliminary findings, the views of participants and recommendations for future activity. To design and conduct the trial, an action research method was chosen because it is participative and grounded in experience, reflecting the context and objectives of the trial. The third article is from India. The third one is on “Distance Education In The Age Of Globalization: An Overwhelming Desire Towards Blended Learning”, written by Satya Sundar SETHY, Indira Gandhi National Open University. The aim of this paper is to discuss the nature and status of distance education in the age of globalization, i.e. how best it fits for the present educational scenario. In this connection, it is discussing how Blended Learning (hence after, BL is one among the other learning strategies mostly helpful for the learners. The fourth article arrived from Anadolu University, Turkey on “The Validity And Reliability Studies of The Computer Anxiety Scale on Educational Administrators (CAS-EA” an written by Esmehan Agaoglu and her team. This study aims at investigating the validity and reliability studies of the “Computer Anxiety Scale”. And the “Computer Anxiety Scale of Educational Administrators” (CAS-EA was developed as a result. The fifth article from Greece, on “The Organisation of A Distance Postgraduate Dance Programme And The Participation of Students Specialising in Dance”, written by Dimitris GOULIMARIS, Maria KOUTSOUBA and Yiannis GIOSOS. The aim of their study is to research the factors which constitute the behaviour of students participating in distance postgraduate programmes of studies in dance and to detect any difference in their behaviour that stems from characteristics such as gender and previous dance experience. The sample of the study consisted of 71 male and female students who had chosen to specialise in Greek traditional dance in three Departments of Physical Education of Greece, where the specific specialisation is offered. From the results of the study, it is observed that there is a moderately positive tendency to participate in a postgraduate programme of studies in dance. The sixth article which is entitled as “Reasons For Student Discontinuation in Engineering Degree Courses Offered At A Distance”, sent and written by S. Anbahan ARIADURAI and Rajalingam MANOHANTHAN from The Open University of Sri Lanka, SRI LANKA. Their paper investigates the reasons for low completion rates in the faculty and suggests ways and means to overcome this problem. The study concludes that increasing student numbers will not necessarily increase percentage of students completing the programme though the number of students completing is increased. It is found that students offering courses for the first time in the system of distance education in their academic career perform poorer because they are not conversant with distance education techniques. It is recommended that the Faculty must offer an orientation programme on distance education to all the students enrolling for the first time, before they commence their regular programmes. The seventh article is came from Turkey on “An Online Social Constructivist Tool: A Secondary School Experience In The Developing World”, written by Ayse KOK. She mentioned in her paper that with the rapid advances in technology, several online learning tools come onto the stage. Being an online learning delivery tool to support a full range of teaching and learning activities conducted by educational institutions Moodle facilitates online content creation and collaboration by entailing various social and communication tools that support teacher-student, student-student, and teacher-teacher interactions. This paper presents the "Moodling"(Moodle, 2005 experience within a secondary school in a developing country, namely Turkey. Based on a focus discussion group with the foreign language teachers, the author depicts the critical points that need to be taken into consideration so that an effective collaborative online platform for both teachers and students to learn together can exist The 8th article is arrived to us from again Pakistan. The article which is entitled “Suitability of AIOU Television And Its Impact on Students’ Achievements”, which is written by Syed Abdul SIRAJ, Department of Mass Communication of Allama Iqbal Open University, Islamabad, PAKISTAN. This paper presents and concluded No strong relationship was found between Learning from TV and academic achievement in the AIOU situation. Use of television in the AIOU Situation will be more effective if transmission day, time and duration are adjusted according to the students’ demand and when students’ assignments are based on both textbook and TV programs. Next and the ninth article article is written by Selahattin GONEN and Bulent BASARAN from Diyarbakir University, Turkey. Their paper is entitled as “The New Method Of Problem Solving in Physics Education By Using Scorm-Compliant Content Package”. Their study two basic purposes are presented. First, taking effective feedbacks in the electronic learning environment about the learning level of students at the problem solving which are told in physics lessons and laboratories. Second, providing a possibility for students to repeat the subjects and solved problems by watching and listening, which are told in lessons and laboratories, whenever or wherever they want. For this purpose, in the first step, the problems solved in classroom and laboratories about physics and subject expressions are transferred to digital environment and e-learning materials are developed. In the second step, these materials are converted to standard SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model package and integrated to Course Management System (CMS. The tenth article is also from Germany and written by Wolfram LAASER, FernUniversität in Hagen. Paper is titled as “Economics of Distance Education Reconsidered”. The economic viability of e-learning projects will be questioned with more scrutiny than in earlier periods. Therefore it seems to be a good opportunity to see what can be learned from past experience in costing distance learning projects and what aspects are added by current attempts to measure economic efficiency. After reviewing early research about costing distance learning some more recent approaches will be discussed, such as eLearning ROI-calculators and the concept of total cost of ownership. Furthermore some microeconomic effects referring to localization of distance learning courses are outlined. Finally several unsolved issues in costing distance education are summarized. The eleventh article arrived from Nigeria, which is titled as “Designing E-Education Supports in E-Health Based Systems”, written by Ikhu-Omoregbe, NICHOLAS. This paper presents the experience gained in designing mobile health care applications is used to proffer e-Education functionalities in the design of healthcare systems to enhance their acceptance in the medical domain. The application discussed, uses the Unified Modelling Language, mobile, and Java-based technologies for its development. The application provides a real-time access to medical information at the points of health-care delivery within health care centres. Continuing education centers mainly organize activities for the society in the fields that have gained importance on the improvement of individuals with a view of career building, improving professional knowledge and skills, achieving new skills and supplying individual development needs. Such centers have been established within universities through the principle of making continuing education accessible to everyone as a starting point for a lifelong learning process. These centers which aim at providing continuing education, implement more flexible programs compared to those executed at higher education institutions. Next article is which numbered as 12, from Turkey. Article is entitled as “Structure and Functions of the Continuing Education Centers at Turkish Universities”, written by Mehmet Metin ARSLAN, from Kirikkale University. In this study, the structure and functions of Continuing Education Centers at Turkish Universities are investigated. The scope of the study includes all the centers that have web pages established under state and public universities in Turkey.The thirteenth article is again from Anadolu University, Turkey. Article is titled as “Designing Motivational Learning Systems in Distance Education”, written by Jale BALABAN-SALI. In her article, the empirical studies related with this subject and the suggestions for presenting more effective motivational instructional designs in distance learning are summarized. The fourteenth article is written by Laura ASANDULUI and Ciprian CEOBANU from Al. I. Cuza University, ROMANIA on “E-Learning in Romanian Higher Education: A study case”. Acording to them in Romania, issues connected to eLearning are comparatively little known, as there are no relevant studies regarding the present situation of eLearning use or of the ways of increasing the level of use of Information and Communication Technologies along with an increase in the efficiency of higher education. The purpose of their study is to explore the level of dissemination of eLearning in the Romanian higher education, regarding both awareness about eLearning as a model and actual participation in such courses, to assess the respondents’ opinion on eLearning, to analyze the perspectives of using e-learning, and the students’ opinions concerning e-learning in comparison with traditional educational model. The paper reports the results of a research that was conducted in Iasi, at the "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University. Through the application of appropriate statistical methods, the research’ aim was to describe and assess to what extent computers are used for learning of the students in order to highlight any important differences in terms of gender, specialty, and the preferred form of learning for postgraduate courses. New technologies have an important effect on changing higher education. Using technology also has effect on improving learning and teaching in education and especially higher education. Now some universities and institutes use these technologies to apply virtual and distance education but there are another approaches to use them. Weblog is one of them. Weblogs can be used in conventional universities along side the traditional classroom. The fifteenth and last paper is from Iran on “Weblog as A Learning Tool In Higher Education”, written by Yousef NAMWAR And Azam RASTGOO, Islamic Azad University. This paper review the importance and advantages and results of using weblog in universities by surveying the projects and researches that conducted in this subject all over the world. Using weblog because of easy to learn and apply is growing up every day. And this is a good opportunity to develop using weblogs in traditional universities. Weblog provide a good opportunity for collaborative learning and communication between students and teachers even among the students. This approach is based on constructivism theory. Knowledge rather than being transmitted through instruction is constructed or created by learners as they build their own cognitive structures. Teacher’s role is not giving the information to students but is guiding them during the instruction. Usage of the weblog helps to this aim. Results of research have shown that using weblog help users to develop literacy skills, critical thinking skills, knowledge construction ability, cooperative learning, academic development and etc..In the other sections are again in the same format as usual as TOJDE’s presenting style.

    Full Text Available La formulación estratégica, la implementación de estrategias y el monitoreo constituyen elementos claves en la gestión de organizaciones. En muchas empresas, se plantean estrategias muy soñadoras e inviables, y a la hora de implementarlas no se logra traducir en acciones efectivas nuestra visión de negocios. En otras ocasiones, se supone una“implementación exitosa”, pero no se implementa un sistema de monitoreo y control que permita constatar si se lograron los resultados esperados. En otros casos, se plantean indicadores poco relevantes para tratar de explicar el éxito del Plan Estratégico. Entodas estas “imperfecciones”, finalmente es común que muchos colaboradores perciban que “la estrategia” ha sido un fracaso, piensan que la estrategia no ha sido efectiva para lograr los resultados esperados y, lo que es peor, que hay un “doble discurso” entre los que propone el plan y las decisiones que se toman en la organización.

    Full Text Available La unidad dialéctica entre ciencia e investigación comprende tareas muy diversas donde se debaten el statu quo y la creatividad, el primero para observar con cuidado y certificar el cabal seguimiento de procedimientos canónicos ya aprobados por la comunidad respectiva y la segunda porque es la posibilidad de animarse a irrumpir con nuevas formas de mirar la naturaleza, el mundo y lo que acontece. La inserción en el establecimiento, que nos lleva a recorrer con comodidad caminos ya construidos y que han sido aceptados por otros sabios, nos confiere la seguridad necesaria para llegar a resultados confiables con relativa certeza; en contraste, la decisión de acometer la tarea de imaginar y construir nuevos caminos para recorrerlos por primera vez y dejarlos instalados con vida propia, así como la vocación de ejercitar la creación de nuevos postulados e hipótesis, si bien brinda la alegría de ser pionero, también trae consigo el enorme riesgo de encontrar resultados no ciertos ni aceptables para los demás.

    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.

Como editores ficamos algo preocupados com qual seria o efeito  desta notícia no número de propostas para a Linguamática.Felizmente tivemos um número de propostas bastante elevado, com artigos relevantes e  interessantes, alguns dos quais não foram aceites inicialmente para publicação não pela falta de qualidade do trabalho, mas por necessitarem de algum trabalho adicional.O facto dos autores continuarem a enviar propostas para a Linguamática demonstra um voto de confiança no nosso trabalho e dos revisores, confiança essa que muito agradecemos. Também acreditamos que o facto de a Linguamática estar indexada em novos índices (como o da plataforma e-Revistas do CSIC espanhol seja um factor relevante.Em relação a este ponto, relativo à indexação da Linguamática, cumpre-nos informar que está neste momento a decorrer a avaliação por parte da SCOPUS para a possível inclusão da Linguamática.  Supomos que com a adição de títulos, resumo e palavras chave em inglês será mais fácil que outros índices acolham e incluam a nossa revista nos seus índices.Ao terminar este quinto ano de vida da Linguamática não podemos de deixar de agradecer a todos os membros da comissão científica, bem como a todos os investigadores que nos fazem chegar os seus  trabalhos para publicação.

El empresario es quien tiene el valor de crear, organizar y poner en marcha una empresa. Es una persona de iniciativa que crea y fomenta la creación de empresas propias. El intraempresario es esa persona que cuando trabaja en empresas ya existentes contribuye a su innovación, desarrollo y productividad”.

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

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

Fue así como en el año de 1965 se puso en marcha el primer programa de Ingeniería Agrícola en Colombia y segundo en América Latina, siendo su cuna la Universidad Nacional Sede Medellín. Posteriormente, el 27 de marzo de 1969, hace precisamente 30 años, mediante el acuerdo 33, el Consejo Superior Universitario creó la carrera de Ingeniería Agrícola en la Sede de Bogotá, bajo la dirección de las Facultades de Agronomía e Ingeniería. El 11 de agosto de ese mismo año, 33 estudiantes iniciaron su carrera, la cual paso a ser administrada por la Facultad de Ingeniería en 1973. En 1978 el Consejo Superior Universitario formalizó el actual Departamento de Ingeniería Agrícola. Durante estos 30 años, 7.600 bachilleres han solicitado admisión a la carrera, de los cuales 2.120 han sido admitidos como estudiantes, logrando el título de Ingeniero 750 profesionales, quienes han hecho aportes importantes al desarrollo del sector agropecuario. Se han realizado cerca de 400 trabajos de grado, distribuidos así: 37% en el área de postcosecha y agroindustrias; 35% en riego, drenajes y conservación de suelos; 15% en maquinaria agrícola y mecanización y 13% en el área de construcciones agropecuarias.

    The 9th edition of the International Conference on Radiation Effects on Semiconductor Materials, Detectors and Devices (RESMDD), held in Florence, at Dipartimento di Fisica ed Astronomia on October 9-12, 2012, was aimed at discussing frontier research activities in several application fields as in nuclear and particle physics, astrophysics, medical and solid-state physics. Main topics discussed in this conference are tracking performance of heavily irradiated silicon detectors, developments required for the luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC), radiation effects on semiconductor materials for medical (radiotherapy dosimeters, imaging devices), astrophysics (UV, X- and γ-ray detectors) and environmental applications, microscopic defect analysis of irradiated semiconductor materials and related radiation hardening technologies. On the first day the conference hosted a short course intended to introduce fundamentals in the development of semiconductor detectors for medical applications to graduate and PhD students, post-docs and young researchers, both engineers and physicists. Directors of the School were Prof. Marta Bucciolini of the University of Florence and INFN, Italy and Dr. Carlo Civinini, INFN Firenze, Italy. Emphasis was placed on the underlying physical principles, instrument design, factors affecting performance, and applications in both the clinical and preclinical applications. The School was attended by nearly 40 students/ young researchers. We warmly thank the Directors for organizing this interesting event and the professors and researchers who gave lessons, for sharing their experience and knowledge with the students.

    Se estima que la población colombiana es en la actualidad de 32.9 millones de habitantes de los cuales 22.5 están en edad de trabajo, situación que necesariamente nos lleva a concluir, que gran parte de la población está expuesta a factores de riesgo laborales que en alguna forma pueden afectar la salud y capacidad productiva del trabajador y que inciden en la de la familia. La política económica actual del país, está orientada hacia la apertura y reconversión industrial, para generar nuevas formas de empleo y procesos tecnológicos de producción, en busca de procurar el  desarrollo social que le permita al individuo disfrutar y compartir una vida digna con su familia. El hombre permanece la mayor parte del tiempo en el sitio de trabajo, a éste le dedica su capacidad intelectual y física, es por tanto necesario proporcionar condiciones mínimas de seguridad para lograr un ambiente que facilite el desarrollo integral, que sea gratificante y no una amenaza para su salud física o mental.

    Full Text Available La presente edición de la revista está centrada en aquellos aspectos importantes de la agenda internacional y de defensa, que de una u otra forma tienen un impacto en las áreas de interés de la seguridad y defensa tanto en nuestro caso nacional como en el regional. En esa línea se inscribe el análisis comparativo que se presenta entre Brasil y México, dando cuenta de cómo las políticas de exterior y defensa de Brasil, junto al resultado de su política económica han hecho prevalecer al primero de estos en el liderazgo latinoamericano, lo que también se inscribe dentro del respaldo que le entrega a Brasil el ser considerado uno de los países del BRIC. En ese sentido, junto con ganar ese sitial, le permite a Brasil considerar a México como un posible socio estratégico que le coopere en contrarrestar la in uencia de Estados Unidos en el hemisferio sur del continente. En el marco de la seguridad y defensa en la región, es importante el conocimiento y dimensionamiento del Terrorismo Simbiótico Transversal, modelo elaborado a partir de las actuaciones y estrategias efectuadas por las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias Colombianas (FARC en los últimos años. En el ámbito propio de la defensa se analiza la concepción operativa basada en efectos o EBO (Effects Based Operations. En el ámbito de reflexión académica, muchas veces nos encontramos con la dificultad de diferenciar a la seguridad con la defensa, por ello, en este número presentamos un interesante ensayo con el que se busca dilucidar la confusión existente para conceptualizar seguridad y defensa, circunstancias que impactan en la elaboración de planes de estudio y enseñanza de estas materias en los diferentes institutos y academias de la región. Finalmente, en este mismo ámbito de re exión académica, se presenta un ensayo que analiza las nociones de sociedad, paz y guerra, en La ciudad de Dios, de San Agustín, explicando la teoría de las dos ciudades, la terrena y la de Dios.

Es por ello que el estudio de los diversos fenómenos que afectan las situa- ciones internas como externas de los actores de este gran concierto internacional es importante para todo aquel que se interese en los temas de la Seguridad y Defensa, que sin lugar a dudas están dentro del campo de las relaciones internacionales y que se ven in uenciadas por los efectos de hechos que a veces ocurren muy lejos, pero que tienen insospechadas repercusiones en otras regiones del mundo. Habiendo pasado ya bastantes años desde el trágico ataque a las Torres Gemelas, este hecho sigue siendo motivo de exhaustivos estudios desde diferentes puntos de vista que atraviesan todo el espectro de las ciencias sociales. Hoy presentamos un análisis sobre la actuación de la comunidad de inteligencia norteamericana y si ella tuvo o no un fracaso al no detectar oportunamente el ataque a Estados Unidos, lo que originó un giro sin precedentes en la política exterior norteamericana, afectando de paso a otros importantes actores del sistema y poniendo a la efectividad de los servicios de seguridad de la primera potencia bajo el manto de la duda.

    This special issue of "Gender and Development" focuses on the challenges of implementing gender equity policies in organizations and development programs that have been influenced by hegemonic sex role concepts. Useful to this analysis is a framework developed by Schuler emphasizing the interdependence of substantive elements (laws or organizational policies), structural factors (procedures and mechanisms to enforce the substantive level), and cultural norms and attitudes. In general, adoption of a women-in-development approach has been based on efficiency rather than equality rationales, reflecting awareness of women's potential to contribute to economic growth. Other organizations have embraced gender equality as a prerequisite to poverty alleviation. Feminist organizations, in contrast, address the power inequities implicit in gender relations. Many enlightened grass-roots organizations currently face the dilemma of balancing their commitment to women's empowerment with the need to meet the funding requirements of bureaucratic donors in the context of an unequal partnership. Worrisome is an apparent shift on the part of mainstream development agencies from a women-in-development approach to a social welfare perspective. Alliances and networking between diverse stakeholders united around a common aim are essential to translate the rhetoric of gender equity into actual social transformation.

    La revista Ingenio Magno a partir de este volumen se vincula a la iniciativa de Open Access mediante la implementación del software administrador de revistas abiertas “Open Journal System”, con el fin mejorar el proceso de acceso, visibilidad e impacto de esta publicación. La aplicación de un proceso digital genera varios beneficios: al medio ambiente, aportando a la conservación de los recursos naturales al no usar tintas ni papel para la impresión; acceso libre y universal, donde los lectores en cualquier latitud dispongan los artículos científicos sin ninguna restricción; comunicación directa con los autores, que propicia la construcción colaborativa de la investigación por medio de correos electrónicos, redes sociales, entre otros; y por último se potencia la visibilidad e impacto, al facilitar la vinculación a repositorios y bases de datos de investigación. Lo anterior se relaciona con la (Iniciativa de Budapest para el Acceso Abierto de lanzar la estrategia mundial para el acceso libre a las publicaciones científicas, inspirado en la corriente de la Cultura Libre, que propone una creatividad colectiva basada en el uso libre de las obras artísticas, literarias, científicas y software que están disponibles en Internet bajo las libertades de distribución y modificación que son caracterizadas por corrientes de pensamiento según el libro “free culture” (Lawrence Lessig, 2004 de Dominio Público, Copyleft y Licencias Creative Commons.

    Full Text Available As Guest Editor for this special issue of SiSAL, in which the themes are accessing and accessorising for self-access language learning (SALL, it gives me great pleasure to welcome readers, old and new, whether veterans in the field of SALL, or relative novices. While any journal editor is both facilitated and limited by the range and quality of submissions that are received for a special issue such as this one, my hope from the outset was to be able to bring together a collection in which the various strands and threads of knowledge and experience related to self-access which writers had to offer would weave together to create a web of fabric which would be varied, colourful and aesthetically pleasing and, at the same time, interesting and intellectually satisfying. My desire for an issue which would genuinely add to our knowledge of self-access, which would highlight some key but neglected SALL areas, and which would be suitably globally representative and geographically diverse in relation to SALL activity, may even have been surpassed.

Neste volume, são publicados 19 artigos que tratam de temas atuais nas seguintes áreas: climatologia (radiação ultravioleta em Natal/RN; evapotranspiração no Seridó/RN; agrícola/aquicultura (métodos de abate de peixes; cultura do feijão; cultura da mandioca; ambiental (resíduos de demolição da arena Palestra Itália; uso/ocupação do solo; educação ambiental na prática docente; percepção ambiental; automação (análise de desempenho de redes residenciais; educação (burocracia no ensino superior; ensino de matemática; tecnologia assistiva; cultura (araruna; caboclinhos; e inovação (design de humanos; cadeias de suprimento. A variedade dos artigos apresentados demonstra o caráter interdisciplinar do periódico, que, nos seis volumes publicados em 2013, pôs à disposição da comunidade acadêmica 118 artigos nas mais distintas áreas, dos quais foram efetuados 46.476 downloads, sem contar os acessos aos artigos que estão nas bases indexadas, tais como ProQuest e EBSCO. Nesse contexto, convém ressaltar e comemorar a inclusão na política científica da Secretaria de Educação Profissional e Tecnológica (SETEC/MEC dos editais de fomento à pesquisa junto ao CNPq. Essas ações fortalecem e validam o papel da agenda de desenvolvimento tecnológico dos Institutos Federais, ajudando a fomentar a produção acadêmica. Na oportunidade, esta editoria aproveita ainda para recomendar dois trabalhos recentemente publicados sobre o IFRN: “A Forja e a Pena”, de Arilene Lucena de Medeiros e “A experiência pioneira do IFRN com reserva de vagas em seus processos seletivos”, de Nadir Arruda Skeete. A primeira obra, resultado de uma minuciosa pesquisa histórica, aborda a trajetória da Escola de Aprendizes de Natal à Escola Técnica Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, com imagens e farta documentação. O livro está disponível em formato digital no endereço http://portal.ifrn.edu.br/pesquisa/editora/livros-para-download/a-forja-e-a-pena-1/at_download/arquivo. O segundo trabalho traz um relato da ousada experiência deste Instituto Federal com ações afirmativas desde as origens até o processo de formalização da reserva de vagas, com a descrição dos mecanismos adotados para o acolhimento dos grupos envolvidos no processo de acesso dos estudantes com baixo nível socioeconômico ao IFRN. Esta joia da política de inclusão social praticada nesta instituição está disponível para download no endereço http://www.flacso.org.br/gea/documentos/estudos_afirmativos/A_experiencia_pionera.pdf. Esta atmosfera dá uma ideia da ação institucional, que busca pautar-se nas melhores práticas do convívio social e do desenvolvimento científico e focar-se no compromisso com a disseminação e a valoração do conhecimento, com vistas a alterar o quadro de desenvolvimento socioeconômico. O registro dessa ação, materializado em mais uma publicação, só é possível graças à relação de mútua confiança entre editoria, autores e avaliadores ad hoc, que se vem consolidando ao longo do tempo, razão pela qual externamos especial agradecimento, ao tempo em que convidamos o leitor a acessar os artigos, com a alegria de compartilhar mais uma nova edição do periódico.

For greatest impact, targeted agents, in combination with traditional therapies, will need to be tested in each age group and for each disease. Adolescents and young adults are being recognized as a distinct group of patients that unfortunately are under-represented in formal clinical trials and new treatment assessments. The reason for this are multiple and include the lack of insurance coverage for many as they transition to independence from their parents, the sense of invincibility that many young adults feel, the types of tumors observed in these patients, and the lack of coordinated clinical trial consortiums for this age group.

We are all aware, however, that the process of developing or implementing learning technologies often requires adaptation or changes in staff roles and skills, in organizational culture and structures, in strategies and policies, in attitudes and perceptions as in well as the theories and models we use to explain and understand the learning and teaching experience. In this issue of ALT-J we present ten papers. On first reading these papers represent quite an eclectic mixture of subjects and methods: a closer inspection, however, reveals a common theme that runs through all the papers, that of change. Linked to this theme are notions of evolution, innovation and experimentation.

    Full Text Available Eduardo Germán María Hughes Galeano, más conocido como Eduardo Galeano, falleció el 13 de abril de 2015, mas su obra sigue iluminando a miles de intelectuales latinoamericanos que desde diferentes disciplinas y perspectivas apuestan por un mundo otro, por una sociedad otra. Desde el primer párrafo de la Introducción a “Las venas abiertas de América Latina”, escrito en 1970 y publicado en 1971, pero con una vigencia inacabable hasta que no pueda superarse la desigualdad en el mundo, se vislumbra la necesidad de otros rumbos: La división internacional del trabajo consiste en que unos países se especializan en ganar y otros en perder. Nuestra comarca del mundo, que hoy llamamos América Latina, fue precoz: se especializó en perder desde los remotos tiempos en que los europeos del Renacimiento se abalanzaron a través del mar y le hundieron los dientes en la garganta. Pasaron los siglos y América Latina perfeccionó sus funciones. Éste ya no es el reino de las maravillas donde la realidad derrotaba a la fábula y la imaginación era humillada por los trofeos de la conquista, losyacimientos de oro y las montañas de plata. Pero la región sigue trabajando de sirvienta. Continúa existiendo al servicio de las necesidades ajenas, como fuente y reserva del petróleo y el hierro, el cobre y la carne, las frutas y el café, las materias primas y los alimentos con destino a los países ricos que ganan, consumiéndolos, mucho más de lo que América Latina gana produciéndolos (Galeano, 1970, p. 15.

De manera que en las estructuras estatales venezolana, la política científica ha operado como un áreacarente de participación y autonomía, en relación con variables críticas necesarias para alcanzar los objetivos del desarrollo económico y social. Siempre ha estado supeditada a otras instancias dedecisión que con frecuencia ven la actividad científica y tecnológica como un hecho necesario, pero que su participación y desarrollo en el país puede ser postergado.Bajo esta visión del desarrollo social, es que el gobierno nacional transformó al Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología en el Ministerio del Poder Popular para Ciencia, Tecnología e Industrias Intermedias, haciendo hincapié en los procesos de desarrollo industrial como órgano de vinculación entre los agentes del desarrollo productivo y las instituciones del Estado. Bajo estas condiciones depaís, la política científica se desarrolla en un marco de subordinación y de aislamiento, que hace delhecho científico nacional una estructura débil, propia de una visión de modelo de país en donde elaporte de la investigación científica y tecnológica a la solución de los problemas sociales es un derivado"residual" de otras políticas.Pero no sólo la conversión del ministerio a otros intereses distintos a los de la ciencia y tecnologíahan sido los únicos cambios que han afectado el desarrollo científico que venía desarrollándoseen los últimos 20 años, sino que programas de estímulos a los investigadores se han desactivadopara dar paso a una inercia estéril de investigación, tal es el caso del Programa de Promoción alInvestigador que debido a la falta de objetivos y claridad en su aplicación será sustituido por elPrograma de Promoción a la Investigación, tal como lo expresa el portal del Observatorio Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación –ONCTI-. De ahora en adelante, pareciera que el estímulo queantes se otorgaba a los investigadores, se canalizará a la investigación. Y eso, no será suficiente paraimpulsar la investigación, si tomamos en cuenta el factor de desmotivación reinante actualmenteentre los investigadores, manifestado en la disminución de trabajos que se reciben en las revistascientíficas, luego de la desactivación del Programa de Promoción al Investigador.El desarrollo científico tiene sus propios canales de difusión de conocimiento y las revistascientíficas han sido por mucho tiempo el canal natural de transmisión de resultados. La informacióncientífica, en el sentido de comunicación de conocimiento, es un atributo que la ciencia explota; porello, las sociedades, en general, disponen de sistemas propios de comunicación científica, unos másrudimentarios, otros gradualmente más sofisticados.En el caso venezolano, las revistas científicas conforman un sistema de comunicación de conocimientoavalado por el Fondo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología –FONACIT- y, donde Enl@ce esparte de ese acervo científico nacional; así lo ha reconocido al acreditarla desde el año 2007 comorevista científica venezolana. Pero también la Universidad del Zulia, hace esfuerzos por mantenerlos canales de comunicación científica. Por ello, recientemente se inauguró el portal del Registrode revista de Ciencia y Tecnología de LUZ (ReviCyHLUZ bajo la responsabilidad del Servicio deBibliotecas de la Universidad del Zulia (SERBILUZ.

    Full Text Available En una sociedad con tantas necesidades, la investigación debe ser priorizada para que sus resultados tengan valor social. Bajo esta perspectiva, la actividad de investigar no tendría sentido, sino existiera una forma de control a la investigación. Al menos en Venezuela, el control a la investigación se ha conducido, la gran mayoría de las veces, a través de las fuentes de financiamiento.¿Qué se perdería si de pronto las revistas científicas desaparecieran? No deberíamos ni siquiera imaginarlo, pero de algo estoy seguro, hemos estado muchas veces cercanos a esa situación.A menudo, en los discursos oficiales, en los medios de comunicación, incluso en los ambientes académicos se escuchan alabanzas que intentan incentivar la labor científica del país. Nadiequiere correr el riesgo de pasar por incompetente o al menos indiferente frente a la necesidad de desarrollarinvestigación. Sin embargo, quienes financian la investigación y sus resultados (gobierno, universidades e institutos de investigación se columpian en un doble discurso, el de quedar bienen sus posiciones oficiales y el de posibilitar el desarrollo científico tecnológico. Por un lado, quienesestán más cerca del poder y de decidir sobre el financiamiento, encuentran en la investigación unaplataforma política que le rinde muy buenos frutos, y por el otro, quienes están día a día del ladodel desarrollo científico, tecnológico y humanístico sienten que quienes deciden acerca del financiamiento,no hacen lo suficiente para alcanzar altos niveles de investigación.Los desarrollos de la ciencia y la investigación surgen acompañados de discursosque intentanencontrar los planos de la disciplina (ciencia y de la soberbia (política. De modo cada vez másnítido, aparece la incompatibilidad del discurso con las actuaciones; cada vez más, surge un tipo depoder que se expresa en la consagración del discurso político, pero que es neutralizado por el sabercientífico.Por eso, contra el ascenso de un poder ligado con el saber científico, hoy nos encontramos en la situación de objetar todos los efectos de ese tipo de poder.Este año 2009 significó para la investigación en la Universidad del Zulia (LUZ, un retroceso en la política de financiamiento, como consecuencia de decisiones implementadas por las autoridades de LUZ de limitar el financiamiento a la investigación. Aún a pesar de esas restricciones, Enl@ce pudo mantenerse, ajustándose a la reducción presupuestaria que nos tocó, al igual que lo hicieron el resto de las revistas y los propios investigadores. En Enl@ce tomamos decisiones que afectaron sensiblemente nuestra edición. Sin sacrificar la calidad de la revista debimos disminuir el número de trabajos que solíamos publicar, y además, disminuir el número de páginas por trabajo.Sin embargo, el resultado ha sido extraordinariamente positivo. Cumplimos el compromiso de existir y de servir de apoyo a la difusión del conocimiento científico. Cada vez más, reconocidos investigadores confían los resultados de sus trabajos a nuestro esfuerzo. Porque creemos en la necesidad de controlar la calidad de las publicaciones científicas, una vez más, nos hemos sometido a la evaluación de FONACIT para que dictamine nuestro desempeño. Estamos a la espera de losresultados, pero confiamos altamente que Enl@ce siga siendo un referente científico nacional.

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

Cash-strapped local governments are required to deliver core services (‘roads, rates and rubbish’ as Heather Zeppel’s interviewee said, yet are increasingly required to embrace broad social inclusion and environmental concerns, as our contributors show. The five research papers in this issue touch at the heart of equity and democratic governance. The role of critical theory in delivering good practice is explored by Eris Schoburgh in her reflection on local government and local development, and her comparison of Trinidad & Tobago’s structured decentralisation and Jamaica’s communitarian approach. She dismisses the ‘leading laggard’ model where linked settlement economies sink or swim together, and the ‘learning region’ which maximise local synergies to promote economic growth, to propose a new ‘hybrid model’ of local growth that tackles on-going issues such as gender equality, the informal economy and the local commons.

    Full Text Available This second issue of Scandinavian Journal of Leadership and Theology (SJLT contains a total of seven peer-reviewed articles. Two of the articles focus on non-conformist ecclesiology; two papers discuss issues connected to how church development can be thought of and practiced today; and finally, the last three articles have leadership as their main theme. In the article Frikyrklig ecklesiologi (A Free Church Ecclesiology Fredrik Lindé discusses whether the Swedish Pentecostal pastor and author Peter Halldorf’s ecclesiology can really be regarded as non-conformist or whether it is more specifically seen as Baptist ecclesiology. It is well known that in recent years Halldorf has been inspired by ways of thinking about spirituality that are rooted in the Orthodox church tradition, a tradition that many perceive as quite far from the one Halldorf himself comes from. Lindé asks what the relationship is between the ‘Orthodox’ Halldorf and his Pentecostal-Baptist background and identity. What could a thorough understanding of Baptist ecclesiology inspired by the Baptist theologian John Howard Yoder have brought to Halldorf’s ecclesiastical thinking, Lindé asks. His response – and for that matter his suggestion to both Halldorf and the Swedish Pentecostal movement – is that Yoder could have deepened and entrenched Halldorf’s ecclesiology and understanding of spirituality in a theological tradition that is closer to his own than the Orthodox Church. In the article Evangelikalismen utfordret (Evangelism Challenged Bjørn Øyvind Fjeld discusses the theory of knowledge found in James K.A. Smith and indirectly in the Radical Orthodoxy movement. Fjeld’s analysis consists of a comparison between Smith’s theory of knowledge and that of the Evangelical theologian D.A. Carson. Fjeld uses Swedish theologian M. Stenmark’s theory of knowledge to evaluate the stances of Smith and Carson. Fjeld’s conclusion is that traditional Evangelicalism must judge itself critically where its tendency towards cocksureness is concerned. At the same time, Fjeld is of the opinion that Smith should come under criticism for going too far in the direction of weakening the truthfulness of the history of salvation with his theory. With the aid of Stenmark, Fjeld argues against so-called epistemological objectivity – that someone should have the monopoly on knowing the truth. Nevertheless, Fjeld defends the idea that church and theology can own knowledge in the sense of ‘owning with conviction’, albeit without proof. Fjeld’s and Lindé’s articles have in common that they are both searching for what one might call a renewed theological/ecclesiological identity in our time. Fjeld is concerned with the basic epistemological mainstays of a substantial theological tradition on a worldwide level, namely Evangelicalism. The transition from modernism to post-modernism has led to challenges relating to identity for this tradition too. Lindé’s article deals with what he calls an identity crisis within the Pentecostal and Baptist tradition. Although Lindé is primarily writing in a Swedish context, this problem reflects the identity-related challenges that lie beneath the surface throughout the Pentecostal and Baptist tradition. The next two articles in this issue of SJLT are on the topic of church development. In Lars Råmunddal’s article, he asks: what is church development actually about? By developing a typology for different approaches to church development, the author describes four main strategies. One accentuates the spiritual-theological side of the church, often with a strong focus on the person and works of the Holy Spirit. The other stresses the more human and sociological side of things – the development of relationship and/or organizational improvements are prioritized. The third type is where the focus is mainly on the congregation’s church tradition and history. And finally, the fourth is about giving the most attention to adapting to contemporary culture, to being relevant. Seen in the light of an ecclesiologically holistic approach or model, the article confirms that all four main types of strategic approach to church development touch on important concerns when a church is to be developed. But one-sidedness comes under criticism nevertheless – this must also be said to represent a reductionist way of thinking about church, from the point of view of a holistic ecclesiology. Råmunddal’s article also describes what this holistic way of thinking about church would necessarily involve. Jan Inge Jenssen identifies and presents topics that may be key themes with regard to current thinking about church development. The approaches and themes have their roots in the church growth movement back in the 50s and 60s. Jenssen gives a critical evaluation of these approaches. One of the weaknesses of the church growth approach, he says, is that its theoretical reasoning is much over-simplified. Moreover, there is little or no systematic discussion of how growth factors are interrelated in a causal model. There is little discussion of challenges relating to implementation, such as how one should approach resistance to change, says Jenssen. Although Jenssen’s analysis is primarily based on behavioral scientific judgment, theological considerations are also included. Jenssen and Råmunddal’s articles both help to put church development into a professional context. One of the obvious reasons that such contributions are important, is that ways of thinking about and practicing church development can easily be dominated by so-called church development concepts – or, as they are called in management textbooks, popular organizational formulae. There is therefore a great need to place the subject of church development in an academic context as regards theological and organizational theory. Jenssen’s contribution consists of showing how central many of the topics that the church growth tradition has focused on are, as well as the need for a critical evaluation of this approach. Råmunddal’s contribution consists, as mentioned, of presenting a typology and a theoretical model that, among other things, can be used to critically assess to what extent or in what manner various types of strategic approaches to church development that exist today – both thinking and practice – represent an ecclesiologically holistic approach or whether they must be regarded as reductionist. The three last articles have leadership as their common theme. Stephen Sirris’ starting point is the Church of Norway’s need to come to terms with volunteering in the church as a management challenge. Sirris’ contribution in this context presents a theoretical model for managing volunteers that takes into account current literature in this field. The premise for the model, says Sirris, is that management of church volunteers ought to be both based on values and practice-oriented if it is to be relevant in church context. Sirris also points out that managing volunteers requires the ability to recognize and organize, and that the task should be clearly defined in permanent positions in the local church. Since the model that is presented is theory-based, the author notes the need for empirical testing of the model. In an article entitled Temperance and organisational leadership Karl Inge Tangen shows that classical notions about moderation and self-restraint can be used within modern organizational leadership. At the personal level, says Tangen, self-restraint is an expression of personal integrity and may protect the leader against chaos and negative forces. On an interpersonal level self-control can help leaders to treat employees with respect and wisdom, and to deal with conflicts with care. On an organizational level, moderation can help establish a culture of strategic discipline that is able to realize economic and moral sustainable visions. And finally, says Tangen, from a theological perspective, self-control can also be viewed as a God-given gift – conveyed through the moral vision that is presented in the New Testament and implemented through the Holy Spirit in the Christian community. In the article Son, Sent, and Servant, Truls Åkerlund challenges the claim that Jesus was the archetypal servant leader. Relevant writing on the subject tends to be based on such an assumption, says Åkerlund. By means of an analysis of key Christological themes in the Gospel of John, the article’s author demonstrates that the statement that Jesus is a servant must be seen in the light of more dominant themes, such as Jesus’ mission to the world and Jesus as God’s son. Åkerlund therefore warns against presenting Christ as the ultimate model for servant leadership. These three articles on leadership focus on areas where there is currently a great need for critical reflection and constructive thinking. When Stephen Sirris writes about the need for a new understanding of leadership challenges related to volunteering within the Church of Norway, he identifies a need that also exists outside of that church context. Other denominations – which probably use volunteers to a greater extent than the state church – also have a great need for a better understanding of the special leadership challenges relating to volunteering. Most people with experience in the area will be able to confirm that it is precisely the leadership factor that can easily be given a low priority when it comes to organizing of volunteers. When Karl Inge Tangen writes about the value of self-restraint for leadership, it must in many ways be seen as countercultural, in terms of both contemporary culture and the church. Western culture cannot be said to be characterized by moderation, but rather by consumption and excess. This of course also leaves its mark on our ways of thinking about leadership – and how we put them into practice. It’s therefore timely to investigate moderation as a positive value, on both a personal and interpersonal level and an organizational and church level – which is what Tangen does. As Åkerlund addresses in his article an area where one can see that our interpretation of the Bible is easily swayed by popular trends within various disciplines, Åkerlund’s contribution is exemplary in its intention. In this case, the intention is to reveal a somewhat superficial and misconstrued understanding of what should be central or less central to our understanding of the biblical presentation of Christ. Although the understanding of leadership referred to is good and well-meant, if one sees Jesus as the great model for servant leadership, this emphasis may nevertheless leave one in danger of reductionist biblical Christology, according to Åkerlund.

    On Friday, October 16, 1987, the Dow Jones industrial average fell a record 108 points for a single day. Only three days later, on "Black Monday," the Dow fell an incredible 508 points, followed by yet another huge loss of 157 points just one week later, on Monday, October 26, 1987. What was going on? The event that was alleged to have triggered all of this downside activity was "the report of a larger-than-expected trade deficit." However, certain usually reliable but unnamed sources suggested that there may have been a connection between these record-setting plunges and the optics community; after all, they occurred on the Friday prior to, during the week of, and on the Monday following the annual meeting of the Optical Society of America. This suggestion was summarily dismissed, because there simply couldn't be any way for a meeting of a few thousand optical scientists and engineers to influence the stock market. Impossible! Ridiculous! No way!

    Full Text Available La divulgación de los resultados del trabajo de docentes e investigadores constituye un objetivo estratégico de la educación superior cuando se piensa en la democratización del conocimiento. Con marcada insistencia,  investigadores de diversos países latinoamericanos han señalado la urgencia de promover programas de formación en el área de la divulgación científica, señalando las características especiales que demanda la formación de los medios preparados para enfrentar de modo calificado, reflexivo y equilibrado el proceso de democratización de los conocimientos. Mientras se consolida un modelo de educación científica y tecnológica en la que los temas, los casos y problemas se traten de un modo socialmente contextualizado para hacer viable la participación pública en los procesos que deciden sobre el desarrollo, revistas como Ingeniería e Investigación intentan satisfacer ese requerimiento de comunicación con la sociedad. El conocimiento tiene un enorme significado para la sociedad, y desde luego, incorpora sus propios juicios de valor. Los grand es logros científicos del siglo XX mostraron el efecto positivo de la ciencia y la tecnología, pero a la vez sirvieron de soporte para causar sensibles daños a los seres humanos y al medio ambiente. La ciencia y la tecnología son susceptibles de evaluación por parte de la sociedad, y ésta no acepta que los criterios de eficacia y eficiencia económica sean los únicos patrones que orienten el desarrollo tecnológico. Por el contrario, espera que, en las propuestas de desarrollo científico y tecnológico, se tengan en cuenta otros criterios, y exige que las decisiones sobre estos temas se expongan al debate público para promover y permitir la participación de todos los afectados.

    Santos também sugere que estaríamos presenciando o surgimento de uma nova tendência na plataforma do conhecimento de Jafari, a de estudar a epistemologia do turismo, de passar de estudos com base no empírico para estudos comparativos entre teorias. É exatamente o que faz Korstanje na sua discussão sobre os fundamentos da teoria utilizada por MacCannel para construir seus argumentos sobre a relação entre turismo e autenticidade, discussão que vem permeando os estudos de turismo há quarenta anos e que vem sendo superada à luz dos novos paradigmas da reflexividade, do dialogismo e da hibridação cultural. Nesse terceiro número do terceiro volume da RBtur se encerra a parceria da editoria Barretto e Bastos. Consolidado como periódico científico,  suas  páginas destinam-se à extroversão de artigos dos autores dispostos a enfrentar os desafios da pesquisa científica em Turismo.

    Full Text Available En este segundo número de tiempo&economía presentamos dos ensayos sobre temas fiscales en diferentes períodos y regiones. Salomón Kalmanovitz alarga su análisis sobre las cuentas fiscales del Estado Soberano de Panamá (Revista de Economía Institucional, No 27, 2012 a la nueva nación que surge de su separación de Colombia, auspiciada no sólo por el imperio norteamericano sino resentida por el maltrato que recibió del centro político colombiano. Su aporte es mirar con detenimiento las cuentas fiscales de Panamá en medio de un difícil proceso de construcción de Estado sin contar con el monopolio de los medios de violencia y sin disponer de su territorio más valioso. Junto con Giuseppe De Corso se estima el PIB de Panamá entre 1906 y 1945, que es el primer intento que se hace en este sentido y permite completar la serie que la Cepal hizo desde 1945 para todo el siglo XX. Claudia Chaves, por su parte, examina los conflictos fronterizos entre las provincias de Minas Gerais y Sao Paolo entre 1780 y 1815 en torno a la jurisdicción y administración financiera con el cambio que significó pasar de las juntas de hacienda real del Brasil colonial, a la creación del Erario Real del Imperio Portugués que se trasladó al Brasil tras la invasión de Napoleón a la península ibérica.
