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

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

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

    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.

    Full Text Available The International Journal of Engineering Materials and Manufacture (IJEMM is celebrating its first year of online open access publication. 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.

    This issue of EPJ D introduces a revised list of sections and subsections, designed in close collaboration with the whole editorial board. The aim of these modifications is to reflect more faithfully the wide diversity of activities covered by our journal. A new section is introduced. Entitled “Atomic and Molecular Collisions”, it covers a large range of activities, from atom/atom or atom/molecules collisions (including the very active field of ultra-cold collisions in laser-cooled atomic or molecular gases), to electron scattering and molecular reactivity. The creation of this section reflects the increased interest of the journal for molecular and collisional physics, already apparent in the recent extension of the editorial board competence in this direction. We very much hope that this community will react positively to this trend and become a major component of the journal's life. For the other sections, we have markedly revised the list of subheadings. We think it important to make it as detailed as possible, both to indicate that EPJ D aims at being a generalist journal for AMO physics and to help our authors to find easily the proper section for their submissions. There is of course no way to describe the whole field's activity in a few subheadings. They are all to be understood with the broadest meaning. This list is by no means an exclusive one. All theoretical or experimental papers connected to atomic, molecular, plasma, quantum or optical physics are welcome. This revised section list appears almost simultaneously with the new WEB portal to all EPJ journals (www.eurphysj.org), which will be online within a few weeks. It unites the material formerly presented on our publisher's WEB sites (EDP Sciences, SIF and Springer). All the journal contents are available there (and all WEB registrations are of course valid for this portal). We offer also a free access to the highlight papers (see our editorial, Eur. Phys. J.

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

  1. Association of h-index of Editorial Board Members and Impact Factor among Radiology Journals.

    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.

On time publication, meticulous referring and quick processing of manuscripts are the attributes, which we pride on them all. Of course, all these would not have been achievable if we did not have your sincere co-operation. Thus, I will take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt gratitude, in equal measure, to the authors, reviewers, the editorial board, the editorial office and our readers.

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

The answers compiled here aren’t meant to be all encompassing or deterministic when it comes to the opportunities computer graphics and interactive visualization hold for the future. Instead, we aim to accomplish two things: give a more in-depth introduction of members of the editorial board to the CG&A readership and encourage cross-disciplinary discourse toward approaching, complementing, or disputing the visions laid out in this compilation.

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

    Full Text Available Dear IEJEE reader, You are holding the third issue of volume one of International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education (IEJEE, one of the youngest and most exciting electronic journals focusing on the contemporary issues in elementary education. Approximately one tenth of today’s world population has one or another way relationship with elementary education. Different socio-cultural issues, tough economic challenges and changing policies around the world affect the educational conditions for elementary students. Different countries and geographic areas steady are facing different challenges with regard to their teaching-learning agendas. On the other hand we are observing a common global interest: All the central and local educational authorities want to create better teaching conditions for elementary teachers and better learning conditions for the elementary students. Another global interest is to have access to research-based knowledge which has high quality and at the same time is relevant. I believe that IEJEE is fulfilling an important mission with that regard. I owe many thanks to all the researchers who have made their contributions to the previous issues and this third issue of IEJEE. Publishing an international scientific journal is a demanding job.

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

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

    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

    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").

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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    Full Text Available Este número da Revista texto Livre: Linguagem e Tecnologia, é um ótimo exemplo do escopo interdisciplinar de nossas publicações, visto que temos artigos de diferentes áreas do conhecimento. Na seção Educação e Tecnologia, Gonzalo Abio discute uma questão central no ensino a distância, que é o feedback das atividades realizadas pelos alunos no ambiente online de aprendizagem Moodle, no artigo "IMPORTANCIA DEL FEEDBACK AUTOMÁTICO COMO APOYO AL APRENDIZAJE EN EL MOODLE". Na seção Documentação em Software Livre, dois artigos tratam a questão por diferentes abordagens. Délia Ribeiro Leite aborda a documentação de um programa para análise acúistica da fala, no artigo "O USO DE SCRIPTS DO PRAAT NA ANÁLISE ACÚSTICA DA FALA E AS EXPLICAÇÕES SOBRE ESSA FERRAMENTA NO TUTORIAL DO PROGRAMA", enquanto os autores de "CERCEAMENTO OU ACESSIBILIDADE: UMA DISCUSSÃO SOBRE A DOCUMENTAÇÃO EM SOFTWARE LIVRE", Simone Garofalo e Gleidston Alis, optam pela discussão geral do tema da importância da documentação para a liberdade de software. Na seção Semiótica e Tecnologia, Siane Paula de Araújo trata de uma questão cada vez mais premente para as Artes em geral, que é o conceito de corpo frente às novas tecnologias, no artigo "LINGUAGEM, TECNOLOGIA E DANÇA: O “CORPOTECNOLÓGICO”". A seção Linguística e Tecnologia traz uma importante discussão terminológica envolvendo a cibercultura, desde a invenção da imprensa até a digitalização do texto. Trata-se do artigo "DELIMITACIÓN CONCEPTUAL DE LA UNIDAD TERMINOLÓGICA “NUEVOS MEDIOS” EN EL ÁMBITO DE LA CIBERCULTURA", que focaliza exatamente o conceito de "novos meios de comunicação", tão utilizado e com tantas acepções na atualidade. Finalmente, na seção Pensamenteando, o artigo "LIBERDADE EM DUAS PALAVRAS: CREATIVE COMMONS", desta que assina o presente editorial, discute o conceito de liberdade e seu uso indiscriminado, tendo como referência uma licen

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL Em 2004 a HOLOS opta pela alteração do seu caminho e altera-o para aqueles onde seus artigos são publicados exclusivamente de forma eletrônica e disponibilizados nas nuvens – web. Esta estratégia objetivou ampliar a visibilidade do periódico e, consequentemente, dos artigos publicados. Este processo foi realizado utilizando plataforma de software livre, reduzindo custos e resultando na elevação de downloads e citações de artigos, entre outros. Neste percurso, o número de volumes publicados por ano avançou de forma sistemática, a saber, em 2004 foram publicados dois volumes, entre 2005 a 2008 foram três volumes, em 2009 foram 4 volumes, entre 2010 a 2011 foram quatro volumes e de 2012 aos dias atuais foram seis volumes. Assim, nestes dez anos do periódico online, em ambiente de pleno êxito de relações acadêmicas, foram publicados 46 volumes e 789 artigos. Agora, com caminhos abertos, o foco é consolidar a internacionalização do periódico. Assim, nas edições futuras teremos no mínimo 10% dos artigos em língua inglesa e o periódico estará cada vez mais integrado às ações políticas da Associação Brasileira de Editores Científicos (ABEC. No volume seis de 2014 são apresentados 23 artigos que representam as áreas assim distribuídas: dois na área de empreendedorismo e inovação, três na área de tecnologia mineral e de petróleo, dois na área de tecnologia ambiental, três na área econômica, seis em educação; um de divulgação científica, um de filosofia, um de pedagogia e três de ensino. A diversidade dos artigos publicados reforçam o caráter interdisciplinar e sua internacionalização.  Neste contexto de crescimento acadêmico é por demais renovamos os agradecimentos aos autores, pela confiança neste periódico, aos avaliadores ad hoc pelo relevante trabalho e aos membros do conselho editorial pela manutenção dos caminhos editoriais nesta bela trajetória.

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

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL Este segundo volume da HOLOS é publicado em um momento dos mais difíceis em que passa a sociedade brasileira, fruto do processo de impedimento da presidente da república em tramitação no parlamento. Neste contexto, as políticas públicas na área de ciência e tecnologia, ora em curso, estão no limbo, e é preciso vigilância da comunidade acadêmica para a manutenção do ciclo de ouro vivido nos últimos anos e das garantias da estabilidade institucional e liberdades democráticas. No Google Scholar é observada uma tendência no aumento do índice h5 para 8 e mediana h5 para 3, o que mostra um importante crescimento do indicador em relação ao apresentado no ano passado (h5 = 5 e mediana h5 = 5. Este dado é preliminar, pois sua publicação será efetuada em julho de 2016. O periódico também passa a exigir dos autores o registro no Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID. Isto se deve à necessidade de termos um currículo com informações certificadas disponível na base de dados da HOLOS para facilitar o trabalho de editoria, extração de dados dos autores para repositórios, agências de fomento, entre outras aplicações. É importante informar que os principais periódicos do mundo condicionam os autores realizarem esse registro para a submissão de artigos, se configurando uma tendência da utilização deste registro para o pesquisador no mundo e suas instituições. Neste número são publicadas 33 contribuições, sendo que 29 do Brasil, uma de Cuba, duas da Espanha, uma de Portugal com cooperação com o Brasil e uma da Rússia. Observa-se que 15%  dos artigos publicados são oriundos do exterior. O fluxo de artigos provenientes do exterior observa uma elevação da intensidade de submissões neste último ano.

    Full Text Available Sin lugar a dudas, las revistas académicas se corresponden, la mayoría de las veces, con el prestigio, la legitimidad y el posicionamiento de las instituciones educativas de nivel superior; en ellas se reflejan la tradición y la transformación académica, científica e investigativa. Permiten, de igual modo, hacer tangible y resguardar en la memoria de lo impreso el ethos de la Universidad: la consolidación de comunidades académicas y la producción de conocimiento. Sin embargo, para la concreción de este propósito, múltiples tareas han de llevar a cabo quienes trajinan detrás de este tipo de publicaciones: la construcción de una política editorial, la consecución y la recepción de artículos, el sostenimiento de una comunidad de pares o árbitros para la evaluación, la coordinación de procesos como la revisión de estilo, la diagramación y la impresión, el logro de su periodicidad... Aunado a esto, se encuentra la exigencia de cumplimiento con los cánones de los sistemas de clasificación, citación e indexación que hoy en día “legitiman” a las revistas en su labor de difusión del conocimiento académico. Frente a estas tareas, los problemas no se hacen esperar. Uno de ellos se relaciona precisamente con el tipo de exigencias para clasificar o mantener la publicación en el índex, léase los criterios de calidad otorgados en los sistemas creados para tal fin. En Colombia, se reconoce el Publíndex (Sistema Nacional de Indexación de Publicaciones Especializadas de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación, CT+I, y el Índice Bibliográfico Nacional como el sistema más importante en tal sentido.

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

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

Pero además de esto, este número tiene un significado muy especial: nuestra revista cumple 10 años de existir. Hace aproximadamente 12 años surgió en el seno del Centro Centroamericano de Población la inquietud de ofrecer un espacio para dar a conocer los estudios poblacionales de nuestra región de una manera diferente. Queríamos crear una iniciativa más dinámica, que implicara una mayor rapidez en la gestión editorial, menores costos y un contacto más directo con los autores. Optamos entonces por una opción que apenas iniciaba sus primeros pasos en la Universidad de Costa Rica: la publicación electrónica. De hecho, la nuestra fue una de las primeras revistas electrónicas oficiales de esta noble institución académica. Se tuvo que librar una batalla para lograr romper con los esquemas tradicionales, en los cuales solamente la publicación impresa tenía validez, mientras que las electrónicas se tomaban como de baja calidad.

I wish to thank all of our colleagues who have sent these encouraging messages, and also I thank our advisory board members who have kindly answered our requests of manuscript peerviews immediately and thoroughly. We realise that a great responsibility have been put on our shoulders. We know that the success of The Society of Forensic Medicine Specialists, depends on periodic publishing of the Bulletin, as one of the most important factors. We hope that we shall fulfill most of the expectations. The Bulletin will try to play a role of a bridge over troubled water of forensic sciences in our country towards new perspectives, Also we try to keep close contact with the colleagues all over the world. It is a hard task, but we are hopeful because of the support you have made us feel on every step of this work.

    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

Neste contexto de aprendizado, em que o Periódico deve pensar para além do presente, a editoria encontra uma janela para, de forma permanente, disponibilizar esta edição para a comunidade. O esforço para ampliar a presença do Periódico no país e no exterior é apresentado através das figuras 1 e 2, que mostram as origens dos artigos por região e por estado, que ora publicamos.   Figuras disponíveis no arquivo em pdf.   Observa-se nas figuras acima que os artigos estão disseminados em doze estados brasileiros e um na França, destacando-se a região nordeste, que concentra 50% dos artigos e os estados do Rio Grande do Norte e do Rio Grande do Sul, respectivamente com 31% e 22% da origem dos artigos publicados. Este segundo volume disponibiliza vinte e quatro artigos, sendo dez na área de engenharias, oito na área de educação, três na área de administração, um na área de saúde pública, um na área de zootecnia e um na área de cultura. É importante destacar que esses artigos foram produzidos por vinte instituições, entre elas, institutos federais, empresa de pesquisa, universidades federais, estaduais, católicas, privadas e uma universidade francesa. Essa diversidade demostra o caráter plural da origem autoral, fator de sustentabilidade científica para o periódico e que representam forte relação interdisciplinar. Informo à comunidade e ao mesmo tempo desejo as boas-vindas à professora María Dolores Sánchez-Fernández da Universidade da Coruña (Espanha que passa a integrar o conselho editorial e terá a missão de ampliar a visibilidade da HOLOS em solo ibérico.

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

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

The 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?

Os indicadores de citações do Google Scholar Metrics de novembro de 2012 também apontam o periódico com dados de visibilidade e influência no índice h5 igual a 4, e a mediana h5 igual a oito. Esses dados refletem o aumento dos downloads dos artigos publicados no periódico, como também a elevação mensal de submissões de novos trabalhos científicos. Além disso, os novos indicadores do Qualis da CAPES publicados recentemente contemplam a revista em duas novas áreas: Ciências Ambientais com conceito B3 e Filosofia com B4. Isso amplia consideravelmente a inserção no Qualis da CAPES, considerando os conceitos nas demais áreas: B2 na áreas Interdisciplinar e de Serviço Social; B3 em Administração, Ciências Contábeis e Turismo; B4 em Engenharia e Geografia; B5 nas Engenharias I, II e IV, Ciências Agrárias, Ensino e Geociências; e conceito C em outras. Este volume traz 19 artigos nas mais diversas áreas do conhecimento, algumas das quais vinculadas a temáticas interdisciplinares, conforme se descreve a seguir.

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

Nesse contexto, a Revista, que se consolida como um importante veículo de disseminação do conhecimento em diversas áreas do saber científico e tecnológico, surge com um novo layout. Nessa disposição atual, que busca adequar-se ao formato dos periódicos internacionais e aos novos ambientes virtuais, a apresentação dos autores está resumida aos seus nomes e instituições, constando, ainda, o histórico da submissão do artigo. Outro aspecto interessante é a visualização do acesso à revista nos mais variados lugares, mostrando que as publicações eletrônicas são contemporâneas de um novo tempo, com o qual o IFRN se mantém conectado, numa posição de vanguarda. Este volume é composto de treze artigos com contribuições das várias engenharias: mecânica, civil, química, sanitária, agrícola, biomédica e de computação, além das áreas de gestão ambiental e de educação. O primeiro artigo trata dos combustíveis verdes no Brasil, com uma avaliação da lubricidade do biodiesel B5 e dos óleos de mamona e de coco. Já o segundo artigo traz um estudo sobre as máquinas rotativas utilizadas no cotidiano e seu comportamento dinâmico, apresentando, em particular, uma análise experimental para mancais de deslizamento utilizados em refinaria de petróleo. O artigo seguinte discorre sobre uma alternativa para o aproveitamento de resíduo de calcário, através da incorporação destes em blocos para o uso na construção civil.

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

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

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.

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.

Combinado com a internacionalização e com nova periodicidade, continuamos mantendo nosso foco no compromisso com a qualidade.

    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.

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.

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

    Full Text Available 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

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

    2014-05-01

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

  15. Emergence of the bipolar cultural complex in Walt Whitman.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Herrmann, Steven B

    2007-09-01

    My main hypothesis in this paper(1) is that America's seminal poet, Walt Whitman, was trapped--like so many of his contemporaries--in 'cultural complexes' (Singer & Kimbles 2004) that he internalized, but that he found a way to transcend the splits inherent in these 'bipolar' (Perry 1970) organizations through his art. One way he accomplished this was through his aesthetic method of 'holding the opposites' between two poles of a slavery is wrong/white supremacy is justified cultural complex. In my paper, I provide evidence for some of the contradictions inherent in Whitman's character by examining the political splits of his times and explore how various Self symbols he produced through his poetry, particularly the figures he called 'Black Lucifer' and the Deus Quadriune--a quaternity symbol--facilitated his personal and cultural transformation. Finally, I demonstrate the relevance of my hypothesis to contemporary racism during the pre-Civil Rights period in the South through a clinical example, and I show how the Jungian method of 'holding the opposites' can be effectively practised in the transference/countertransference field of psychotherapy in general.

    Full Text Available B.J. van der Walt’s concentration problem This contribution probes the concept of secularism, a key notion of B.J. van der Walt’s “Transforming power” (2007. It is found that Van der Walt’s interpretation of secularism rests on a double assumption. The first assumption is that human nature is intrinsically religious. Humans cannot live without putting their trust in something. The second is that this religious nature manifests itself in “concentrated” ways, rather than dispersing itself over a plurality of objects. These assumptions in tandem explain why Van der Walt holds the view that atheism, agnosticism and even overt indifference in matters of faith are at heart propelled by convictions that share the main features of positive religions. It also explains why he assumes that all these convictions tend towards one and the same goal: to gain dominance in the public realm. This article is sympathetic towards the first assumption, and skeptical towards the second. It is argued that the “concentration- thesis” fails to do justice to world and life-views that obviously do not claim total allegiance. To illustrate this point it turns to the phenomenon of “multiple religious participation”, as well as to different strands within contemporary humanism. It concludes that the main problem may well be that secular culture has little to offer to satisfy the innate religious drive in humankind.

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

    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

    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.

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

    I am delighted to inform you that from January 2010 Professor Alfred K Louis of the University of Saarland, Germany, will be the new Editor-in-Chief of Inverse Problems. Alfred joins us with a wealth of experience and a great deal of respect from the community. He has served the journal in a number of ways as an Editorial Board member, outstanding reviewer and author. We very much look forward to working with him to continue to publish the highest quality articles in the field and build on our extremely successful special section and topical review programmes. Whilst welcoming Alfred to the position, we are also keen to thank our outgoing Editor-in-Chief, Professor Bill Symes, for the fabulous job that he has done over the past five years. Under Bill's direction, Inverse Problems has gone from strength to strength. In fact, in the last year we have taken the step of moving from six to 12 issues a year, reflecting the increased number of high-quality papers submitted to the journal. During the last five years we have published a wide range of fantastic special sections and topical reviews, including a celebration of the journal's 25th year (issue 12 2009), in which Bill played a pivotal role. We are very much looking forward to 2010 and will be celebrating our 25th birthday further with a selection of highlighted articles chosen from the past 25 years.

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

    Vigencia de la tradición.

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

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

    1989-01-01

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

    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.

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

    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

  8. 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

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

    Full Text Available I didn’t sleep much in Stockholm. The eight hour time difference and the jet lag completely messed me up, not to mention the 19 hours of daylight! But during the day when I was so tired, the content being presented at the conference and the people I met kept me buzzing and wide awake! It is always nice to find a group of people who are interested in the same things as you are, and to do so in a beautiful setting with great food and a friendly environment is all the better. In my opinion, the 5th EBLIP conference was the best yet! I returned to Canada inspired and intellectually stimulated.The EBLIP conference is one of the few times that those of us who work on the EBLIP journal have a chance to get together and talk in person. Our journal editors are situated in the U.K., Canada, and the United States, so our work is done primarily via e‐mail and the occasional conference call. Three of us made it to Stockholm (Alison, Lorie and myself, so it was great to touch base in person and have a drink or two together! We also got to see several members of the Editorial Advisory board, as well as those who write evidence summaries for us, or are involved in some other way. Meeting some of these people in person for the first time after a lengthy e‐mail relationship is quite a treat! The Editors took the opportunity at the conference to hold a user group meeting, inviting anyone who was interested to attend and provide us with feedback about the journal. To start we provided an update, which included the fact that the journal has over 2000 registered readers. Did you know that in just one month (May 25 – June 24, 2009 we had 4649 site visits; 3,678 of them unique? Most visits to the journal are from the United States, followed by Canada, Australia, and the U.K. But we have people accessing the journal from all over world, and now that we are tracking site traffic via Google Analytics, it is easy to see on a map where our readers reside.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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”.

    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. We are pleased to announce that Andrea Baer has accepted the position of Editorial Intern and joined our team in mid‐November. Andrea is currently attending the University of

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

    Full Text Available 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

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

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.

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

    Full Text Available This 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.

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

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

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

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

Esta sociedade vem acompanhada de uma evolução tecnológica que afeta, em diferentes graus, todos os países do mundo, produzindo impactos de natureza econômica, política, social e cultural. Tais impactos necessitam de parâmetros para sua análise e avaliação. A medição de bens intangíveis, neste caso, provenientes do uso das tecnologias da informação e da comunicação, é uma tarefa complexa. O artigo do professor Michel Menou, da City University, de Londres, apresenta uma metodologia original para análise desses indicadores na sociedade atual. O relato de pesquisa da professora Clarice Fortkamp Caldin, do Departamento de Ciência da Informação da UFSC, aborda o processo de leitura como função terapêutica. Este trabalho é baseado na sua dissertação de mestrado e representa um foco de abordagem pouco usual na Ciência da Informação. O professor Francisco das Chagas de Souza, também do Departamento de Ciência da Informação da UFSC, apresenta uma análise de sua experiência no ensino de fundamentos teóricos da Biblioteconomia. A estudante Maria Elizabeth Horn Pepulim, do Curso de Biblioteconomia da UFSC, reflete sobre o papel do bibliotecário na sociedade da informação, ressaltando os dilemas, atribuições e responsabilidades deste profissional no mundo globalizado.

  2. Editorial: Sales Strategy (2010

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    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

    2004-04-01

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

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

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

Julie McKenna, many of you will know from her work in both academic and public libraries, has agreed to be the guest editor.

    1998-03-01

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

    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

    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

    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.

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

    Nature has recently published a Correspondence claiming the absence of fame biases in the editorial choice. The topic is interesting and deserves a deeper analysis than it was presented because the reported brief analysis and its conclusion are somewhat biased for many reasons, some of them are discussed here. Since the editorial assessment is a form of peer-review, the biases reported on external peer-reviews would, thus, apply to the editorial assessment, too. The biases would be proportion...

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

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. Because editorial tags relate to structure and content rather than individual articles, the analysis of a network of editorial tags could assist editorial decisions to prioritize types of content...

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. We wish you an enjoyable read and a pleasant and relaxing summer!

    2017-06-15

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

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

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

    Full Text Available Com o presente número, o periódico eletrônico do Programa de Pós-graduação em Serviço Social e Política Social da Universidade Estadual de Londrina está caminhando para o seu 16º ano de existência, dos quais 13 anos publicados no formato eletrônico, sendo um pioneiro nesta modalidade de publicação. E continuando essa trajetória, após a apresentação de um número temático, Serviço Social em Revista retoma sua tradição em publicar artigos variados sobre o abrangente leque de discussões que envolvem as políticas sociais brasileiras.O primeiro grande conjunto de artigos coloca em evidência as questões de um dos campos mais significativos da política social, a saúde pública. São produções acadêmicas, contribuições reflexivas e críticas, que articulam saberes de professores e profissionais envolvidos na execução da política de saúde pelo Brasil afora.As discussões estão todas voltadas para a esfera da gestão da política de saúde, transitam por vários de seus aspectos. Se fosse possível sugerir um roteiro de leitura desses textos, o início se daria pela questão do financiamento da política de saúde, apresentado a partir de um instigante artigo que relaciona a política neodesenvolvimentista com o processo de privatização da saúde, inclusive nos níveis de gestão da política. Neste caminho, o leitor poderia ser apresentado à realidade dos limites impostos por esse modelo privatizado, através de um artigo sobre a superlotação das maternidades públicas no Estado de Pernambuco.Continuando, o leitor encontrará dois artigos que lhe darão um alento no sentido de mostrar que nem tudo foi retrocesso desde a promulgação da Lei 8080. Eles apresentam, em uma perspectiva histórica, como a política de saúde avançou ao longo do tempo. Um dos artigos trata das mudanças de concepção acerca do conceito de território e os avanços construídos na compreensão do que deve ser o trabalho na saúde organizado a partir dessa perspectiva. O outro artigo aponta para a importância dos movimentos de luta da população, que organizada, consegue alterar o sentido da política de saúde mental em nosso país, buscando estabelecer um modelo de atenção que se coloque numa perspectiva de resistência aos interesses capitalistas.Um segundo grupo de artigos discute a política de assistência social indicando ao leitor elementos para uma crítica de aspectos dessa política que podem estar incorporando elementos da política neoliberal imposta desde década de 1980, principalmente. Um primeiro artigo problematiza a chamada matricialidade sociofamiliar, refletindo sobre o tensionamento entre dois modelos de incorporação da família na política de assistência social: um que a coloca no patamar de responsável pela proteção de seus membros, e outro que a considera objeto da proteção social. O artigo busca estabelecer as consequências dos modelos para o trabalho social.Outro artigo discute a política de assistência social abordando a delicada relação entre público e privado nessa área da política social. A partir de dados oficiais as autoras elaboram uma reflexão crítica sobre o financiamento público de serviços ofertados pela rede privada, e as contradições resultantes desse modelo de funcionamento da política de assistência social no Brasil.A partir daí, o leitor encontrará um conjunto de temáticas bem diversa, transitando por discussões sobre a política de educação no contexto do neoliberalismo, passar por uma reflexão sobre a relação entre Estado e sociedade civil a partir de uma experiência com conselhos de direitos da área da infância e adolescência, e enveredar por uma reflexão acerca da emancipação humana e de sua relação com o mundo do trabalho.Completam este volume, duas importantes reflexões sobre a intervenção profissional na área das políticas sociais. Um deles trata de relacionar o fazer profissional do assistente social, com a necessidade de sistematização da prática em consonância com a ética profissional. O outro é um relato de experiência profissional na área das penas e medidas alternativas.Destaca-se o esforço dos autores para compreender as políticas sociais a partir de uma perspectiva crítica, e refletir sobre o desenvolvimento de alternativas de intervenção no sentido de sua ampliação para a garantia dos direitos sociais. Os editores

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

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

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

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

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

    Full Text Available Billed in the press as the world's 'oldest calendar', Issue 34 has closed to a rather large bang with the publication of 'Time and a Place: A luni-solar 'time-reckoner' from 8th millennium BC Scotland' by Vince Gaffney and colleagues. Three weeks on from its release, it is still doing the rounds on Twitter and achieving a certain level of public consciousness with its own series of jokes. And even a topic for the satirical Daily Mash website (readers of a sensitive disposition look away now. The article contained a series of visualisations which of course could only be presented as part of the final publication in an online format, but another reason for IA being chosen as the place of publication was the ability to be responsive and to publish quickly without the restrictions of a print schedule. In this instance, the first draft was submitted to me on 19 June then peer-reviewed, edited, proofed and published by 13 July! I don't think I have ever worked harder and so quickly than I did in the days leading up to publication but the publicity received was probably worth it. I did learn a few things about the way the traditional press works and how press releases get circulated, chewed up and spat out with details (like links to the original source [cough] slowly being edited out but all in all, it's a process I am more than happy to repeat. July was definitely a good month for the journal as it also saw the release of 'A Late Roman Well at Heslington East, York: ritual or routine practices?' by Steve Roskams, Cath Neal, Jane Richardson and Ruth Leary and got its reasonable share of publicity too. The article is Open Access thanks to the support of by the Archaeology Department Research Committee at York, and was picked up by traditional press and new media alike, and shows what can be done by lifting your gaze above the trench edge. It was always going to be hard to top those two articles in terms of publicity but the other articles in the issue should not be overlooked as a result. 'Being a Modern Human: essentialist and hierarchical approaches to the emergence of modern human behaviour' presents a novel approach to the relationship between population dynamics and material culture by recruiting hierarchical systems theory, 'A Sea of Small Boats: places and practices on the prehistoric seascape of western Britain' successfully applies landscape archaeology themes to maritime perspectives and 'Storing up Problems: Labour, Storage, and the Rural Peloponnese' is a nicely argued article on interpreting surface scatters

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

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

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

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

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

    Full Text Available The increasing interest in learning English has had an impact on the alternatives students are offered to study the language as well as on the particularities of classroom management teachers have to be aware of nowadays. Hence, our conceptualizations about a classroom have to include different kinds of learning and teaching settings such as traditional face-to-face work; virtual-learning spaces to allow the learners to build a study path while tutors monitor and assist students when necessary; faceto- face study periods combined with alternating tutoring sessions; and mentoring sessions to support autonomous, semi-autonomous or self-instruction learning. This, in turn, opens doors to questions concerning a variety of issues that are born in the midst of the complex realities we face in such teaching and learning scenarios.

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

    Full Text Available This issue of Higher Learning Research Communications (HLRC features research and teaching proposals from both sides of the Atlantic. In a globalized and interconnected world, cooperation among researchers and higher education professionals is paramount. Equally important, as Steven Maranville argues in this issue’s featured essay, is recognizing being a scholar and researcher means being first and foremost a thinker. Higher education institutions are sanctuaries of knowledge, and faculty members are key in promoting understanding and the free flow of ideas among teachers and students. In the information Age, online tools have proven vital precisely in promoting knowledge and cooperation across oceans and frontiers. As more and more higher education institutions use the Internet in order to reach a wider student audience, the new challenges of online learning require new tools for faculty communication. As such, Eric Nordin and Peter John Anthony conducted research related to the development of a support website for online faculty. Such measures seem to be necessary, as they may lead to improvements in the quality of online teaching and learning. There is another research piece included in this issue that deals as well with improving the quality of teaching and learning. Luis Alberto D’Elia and Diane Wishart have investigated on both sides of the Atlantic, in Canada and Spain, how proper teacher training at the college level may lead to better youth engagement in science classes. Faculty in Education departments must become aware of the needs and challenges youth face in science learning in order to better train the teachers that will serve them. This is why more higher education professionals should engage in high school programs that prepare students for college. Oftentimes, previous educational experiences do not properly prepare students for college life, resulting in withdrawals, longer times to degree completion, or even unwillingness to complete a degree. Maxwell N. Kwenda investigated one of these aspects by trying to track and explain college credit completion in freshmen students. His results suggest high school academic performance, GPA, and college entrance exams can indeed predict academic success, which is why it is important to engage potential college students before they graduate from high school. This tenth issue of HLRC also features selected papers presented at the X Jornadas Internacionales de Innovación Universitaria [X International Conference on Innovation in Higher Education], celebrated by the Universidad Europea de Madrid, in Spain. The aim of the Jornadas is to promote research and ground-breaking teaching proposals in higher education. The selected papers reflect current pedagogic trends and incorporate innovative teaching strategies to engage college students and promote cross-sectional competences. Among the proposals, supporting research activities among students, promoting content and language integrated learning among faculty, providing practical experiences and cooperation in communication and audiovisual programs, student tutoring, taking into account the students emotional intelligence, and even using advanced computer software to provide International Relations students with the change to manage a transition to democracy from an authoritarian regime stand out.

    Full Text Available The present issue of Afrika Focus delves into the way in which the Democratic (what’s in a word... Republic of Congo has been dealing with its ‘way to peace’, via an article that looks at the issue through a discourse analysis perspective. In another article, the growing pains that often accompany the road to democracy in Africa are illustrated by the case of Togo. A third piece in this issue, a case study from Kenya, examines the gum Arabic value chain. The gum is an adhesive and food additive, often used in sweets and soft drinks, and thus an important commodity bought by big multinational companies. For centuries, it has been a source of income for a number of sub-Sahara African countries. Moreover, wars have been fought over the staple – as recently as last year, May 2013, at least 60 people were killed in ethnic (... clashes in Sudan's arid Darfur region, over land producing gum Arabic. The deaths were the result of an ongoing dispute between two ethnic groups in South Darfur, over pasture and acacia trees, from which the gum is obtained. The Gemir group accused the Beni-Halba community of trying to take away land it had owned for more than 300 years. This shows that even a neutral (to sweet subject such as gum Arabic can help to illustrate, and even explain, the root causes of political unrest in a number of countries. And this brings us to the last and fourth article that, even though it deals with poetry, reiterates the same political thematic as highlighted above, as it deals with ‘contemporary Nigerian poets [that] have had to contend with the social and political problems besetting Nigeria’s landscape by using satire as a suitable medium’. Perhaps the latter is amongst the most viable – and maybe only – coping strategies to allow people to survive Nigeria’s (and any ‘difficult’ country’s distressing environment: if you can’t beat them, laugh at them...

    Full Text Available En México, han existido cuatro enfoques filosóficos de uso y aprovechamiento de los recursos forestales: el utilitarismo, el conservacionismo, el uso múltiple y el uso sustentable. Cada uno con una concepción diferente del papel que deben tener los recursos naturales y cómo ser aprovechados y administrados por sus dueños. La perspectiva utilitarista (1521-1950, se basó en lograr el bien individual y colectivo a través de la satisfacción de las necesidades humanas básicas, sin considerar la escasez de los recursos. Lo anterior tuvo consecuencias en la disminución y deterioro de los mismos, que se tradujo en descontentos y presiones sociales. Como resultado, el gobierno promovió un cambio de enfoque, y surgió el conservacionismo (1950 - 1970, el cual prohibió el uso y aprovechamiento de muchos de los bosques; con ello, se intentó que estos se recuperaran. Dicho enfoque logró lo contrario: cambios de uso de la tierra, incendios, sobrepastoreo, cortas clandestinas y un desinterés en el cultivo forestal. Criterios económicos característicos de los recursos como: utilidad, escasez, valor y disponibilidad en tiempo y forma, no fueron alcanzados.

    Full Text Available Es un privilegio contar con la participación del historiador John Komlos en este cuarto número de nuestra revista. Él nos presenta la grave problemática que enfrenta el capitalismo global, recurriendo a la categoría que desarrollara Joseph Schumpeter para describir los avances de la tecnología en el capitalismo: la creación destructiva. Así como el capitalismo iba destruyendo formas de producción y vida pretéritas, daba lugar a nuevos procesos y organizaciones de la sociedad y el trabajo. Mientras las grandes transformaciones de principios del siglo XX multiplicaron las fuerzas productivas y el empleo productivo, las nuevas tecnologías tienden a destruir más empleo del que crean, ahora afectando los servicios también y reduciendo el costo de las inversiones de capital. A esto se le suma la tendencia a la generación de un exceso de ahorro, reflejo de la concentración del ingreso en el decil de los más ricos y a la enorme rentabilidad de las empresas tecnológicas a las que les sobra el efectivo y no requieren del ahorro de los demás para ampliar sus operaciones. La consecuencia es un sostenido estancamiento económico cuyo primer paciente fue Japón en los años noventa, seguido por Europa y con Estados Unidos un poco mejor pero tampoco lejos de ellos. El dominio de la derecha en Europa y Estados Unidos ha reducido la tributación e impedido la aplicación del gasto público para compensar los faltantes de demanda agregada.

    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.

    The two articles in this issue of the European Physical Journal Special Topics cover topics in Econophysics and GPU computing in the last years. In the first article [1], the formation of market prices for financial assets is described which can be understood as superposition of individual actions of market participants, in which they provide cumulative supply and demand. This concept of macroscopic properties emerging from microscopic interactions among the various subcomponents of the overall system is also well-known in statistical physics. The distribution of price changes in financial markets is clearly non-Gaussian leading to distinct features of the price process, such as scaling behavior, non-trivial correlation functions and clustered volatility. This article focuses on the analysis of financial time series and their correlations. A method is used for quantifying pattern based correlations of a time series. With this methodology, evidence is found that typical behavioral patterns of financial market participants manifest over short time scales, i.e., that reactions to given price patterns are not entirely random, but that similar price patterns also cause similar reactions. Based on the investigation of the complex correlations in financial time series, the question arises, which properties change when switching from a positive trend to a negative trend. An empirical quantification by rescaling provides the result that new price extrema coincide with a significant increase in transaction volume and a significant decrease in the length of corresponding time intervals between transactions. These findings are independent of the time scale over 9 orders of magnitude, and they exhibit characteristics which one can also find in other complex systems in nature (and in physical systems in particular). These properties are independent of the markets analyzed. Trends that exist only for a few seconds show the same characteristics as trends on time scales of several months. Thus, it is possible to study financial bubbles and their collapses in more detail, because trend switching processes occur with higher frequency on small time scales. In addition, a Monte Carlo based simulation of financial markets is analyzed and extended in order to reproduce empirical features and to gain insight into their causes. These causes include both financial market microstructure and the risk aversion of market participants.

    Even though India was the first country to address population, it is behind those who came later. The government of India framed population within the context of health, but it eventually shifted the approach to health and family planning. Compartmentalism and adhoc-ism removed the programs far from the people. Eventually family welfare replaced family planning. The 8 Five Year Plan document provides a framework for appropriate, positive change in addressing the population issue. Yet, contraceptive intervention, particularly tubectomy, remains the core of population issues. In fact, tubectomy increased from about 11% of total sterilizations in the late 1960s to 96% in 1994. Women remain the target of population control. In fact, female-targeted contraceptive technology has produced IUDs, oral contraceptives, tubectomy, subdermal contraceptive implants, and the injectable contraceptive. Improvement of women's health services, their status, and their economic independence has not been attempted. Before improvement can occur, female literacy; skill development; meeting of basic needs of food, water, and health care for children to survive; and safe living and working conditions are needed. Male responsibility has risen somewhat over time. India needs to work towards a shift from contraception-oriented population control to reducing births by choice (RBBC), making RBBC a grassroots movement, a holistic approach, coordination between various government agencies, addressing demographic fundamentalism (e.g., son preference and child marriage), provision of primary health care, and equitable distribution of local and global resources. Population policy must be human.

    Full Text Available Academic research represents a milestone in the practice of quality higher education.  Academics that consistently conduct and publish research in specialized disciplines develop leadership in their particular areas and nurture with new knowledge disciplines and professions. Certainly they strengthen the critical atmosphere in which students study and contribute to the reputation of the institutions in which they teach, and by segue attracting highly qualified students and new promising faculty into their programs.  Ground-breaking knowledge is often developed at graduate degree programs, that is, after all, how the practice of academia grows its expertise. Research is a tool for both academia and industry, providing both the framework and opportunity to explore and discover new knowledge and ideas, and strengthening higher education by encouraging the continued debate and challenge of peer-to-peer collaboration. The special issue celebrates quality of research as a basis of higher education.   Since Higher Learning Research Communications focuses on policy and practice in higher education, we have dedicated this special issue to the practice of paramount research in specialized fields of study.  This issue is published as a demonstration of how academicians and practitioners can work as peers to provide a global scope. As a festschrift of Glion Institute of Higher Education’s 50th anniversary, we dedicate this special issue to “Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure in a Globalized World”   Overlooking the magnificent Lake Geneva in Switzerland, Glion is one of the world’s leading schools of international hospitality education. Ranked among the top hospitality management schools in the world for an international career, and celebrated by the global hospitality industry, Glion has been at the top of higher education providers in this realm by recognizing early on that neither job experience nor books alone can grant a student a high-quality education. As this fast-paced, industrialized world increasingly requires schools to train their students with not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical, measurable, and technical skills, Glion has recognized this trend and integrated key components in its curriculum to confront the challenges and seize that opportunities that the school and its students will face.   Being a hospitality higher education institution, Glion has a strong business curriculum delivered by expert faculty members and is committed to continuously adapting its programs to meet the needs of the modern capitalist world. As with many other fields, market trends, governmental policies, eco-consciousness and innovative business practices have impacted the tourism industry. Guest Editors Ruth Rios-Morales and Ian Jenkins, both from Glion, were asked to put together a Journal Issue that represents the state-of-the-art research in the discipline.  We hope you will enjoy this special edition – and whether you are involved in the hospitality and tourism industry or not, will recognize the quality of research that nurtures in a relevant manner higher education programmers in this field.

    Full Text Available Estamos siendo testigos de cómo el mundo se encuentra convulsionado por hechos de sangre que tiñen los distintos continentes, en especial Europa, el Medio Oriente, África y América, producto de la acción de elementos que usando el terrorismo buscan crear el desorden y sembrar la desconfianza e incertidumbre en la población de países de primer orden, y otros en que la lucha armada tiene convulsionado a naciones que no pueden superar sus problemas internos. El debate internacional, así como en la política interna de muchos Estados, se centra en la forma de poder enfrentar estas amenazas y, de paso, hasta dónde pueden estos enfrentar este flagelo, evitando usar a las fuerzas armadas en estas situaciones. Surge, entonces, la duda sobre si los Estados tienen todas las herramientas necesarias para enfrentar estos hechos de acuerdo a sus marcos legales y regulatorios propios de un estado de derecho, donde las diferentes instituciones tienen claramente señalados sus misiones y campos de acción, o es necesario estudiar posibles cambios o creación de nuevas instituciones que permitan llenar los vacíos legales y estructurales para lograr las capacidades para prever y enfrentar con éxito estas amenazas, cuya mayor fortaleza es el uso de la sorpresa para lograr el efecto buscado. En este contexto, existen naciones que ya han decidido emplear a sus fuerzas armadas en la prevención y combate en el ámbito interno para enfrentar acciones terroristas que, últimamente, han costado un gran número de víctimas fatales.

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

    Full Text Available En 1977 el bioquímico inglés Frederick Sanger reportó un método para secuenciar moléculas de ADN, método que a la postre revolucionaría el área de la genómica y el entendimiento en general de la vida en nuestro planeta. Él demostró las bondades de su método al secuenciar completamente el genoma del fago Phi174 que contenía 5.836 pares de bases. Con esta técnica mejorada, se pudieron leer hasta 700 pares de bases en una sola reacción y fue utilizada masivamente para la secuenciación de genomas bacterianos, de levaduras, para finalmente, en 1990 desembocar en la propuesta de lectura de todo el genoma humano. Fueron muchos los que se opusieron al Proyecto Genoma Humano, sin embargo, contra todos los pronósticos se dio inicio bajo la dirección del premio nobel James D. Watson. Durante sus 13 años de desarrollo, el proyecto abrió muchos caminos, entre ellos, la bioinformática, ciencia que en 1990 era una empresa naciente, apenas en 1987 se había creado el GenBank en Estados Unidos, que sería a la postre el repositorio de todas las secuencias de ADN obtenidas hasta hoy día, teniéndose copias en la base de datos japonesa (DDBJ y europea (EMBL. Las tres diseminan libremente la información. Con el Proyecto Genoma Humano se desarrollaron a la par, las ómicas (proteómica, transcriptómica, metabolómica, farmacogenó-mica, epigenómica y lipidómica, etc.. El desarrollo de NGS (del inglés, Nex Generation Sequencing abrió un camino expedito para los proyectos ómicas. El método Sanger se utilizó automatizadamente con la posibilidad de hacer 96 o 384 lecturas en paralelo, lo que le imprimió al proyecto mayor rapidez en la obtención de secuencias, sin embargo, todavía resultaba un método demorado y costoso. En el proyecto se invirtieron 3 billones de dólares. Hoy día el costo de secuenciar 1 kb se estima en $0,5 US. Con NGS, también llamada secuenciación masiva en paralelo, la secuenciación en paralelo ha mejorado la rapidez y bajado los costos exponencialmente. Tres tecnologías de NGS son utilizadas masivamente, aunque ya hay disponibles otros métodos que no son igualmente utilizados. 454 GSFlex de Roche, Genome Analyzer o HiSeq de Illumina y SOLiD de Life Technologies que con sus mejoras y su bajo costo han permitido en casi todo el planeta dar inicio a un número inusitado de proyectos que en últimas buscan inventariar todos los genes del mundo. Recientemente el mercado ofrece versiones de equipos NGS con características un poco limitadas en rendimiento y capacidad de secuenciación, pero más fácilmente utilizables por la comunidad de investigadores, y, además, orientados a un segmento de mercado diferente. Entre ellos tenemos: los equipos 454 GS Junior de Roche, MiSeq Personal Sequencer de Illumina e Ion Torrent de Life Technologies

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

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

    Full Text Available This issue of Libellarium features papers based on presentations at the Publishing trends and contexts conference which took place in Pula, Croatia, on December 6-7, 2013 (http://epubconf.sanjamknjige.hr. The conference has gathered a group of experts from prominent European universities in Sweden, Scotland, Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia and Croatia. Together with The e-books research project managed by the Universities of Gothenburg and Borås (http://projectebooks.wordpress.com and International Book Science Conference organized by Vilnius University, (http://www.ibsc.kf.vu.lt this new conference reflects both the rising interest in modern publishing in smaller European markets and the reinforcement of ties between the dynamic and progressive publishing industry and the scientific research of its trends and contexts. The two crucial questions were: what is the advantage of publishing in small markets as opposed to big ones, and which successful business models are best suited for small language markets. Most speakers, needless to say, observed these questions in regard to new technologies and phenomena like e-publishing and e-books. The conference, on the one hand, has identified many similarities between small markets, but on the other, showed great differences in the overall acceptance and infrastructural support for e-content development. Among the conclusions based on the presentations and discussions, three are of particular importance. Firstly, small markets have many faces. Markets are shaped by cultural and intellectual heritage, publishing tradition and reading habits, complex political and economic processes, scope, infrastructure, etc. E-books are not intended for ideal, naive readers, but rather for markets which are already influenced by numerous past and present developments. Secondly, a small market is always bilingual, if not multilingual. E-books in national languages, usually distributed via national platforms, are a minority compared to those in English available through global distributors. Finally, although the conference approached the small markets through a comparative perspective, results are not always comparable, since different countries have been covered by different methodologies. Thus, a common instrument, e.g. a questionnaire for all stakeholders in the publishing industry, simultaneously applied in different countries, along with a unique methodology for data collection and analysis, would greatly contribute to a better understanding of publishing practices and book reception in small European markets.

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

    Full Text Available Normalmente para las esferas gubernamentales, las áreas de política económica y social son las encargadas de tomar las decisiones de fondo sobre temas que tienen impacto social y simplementelas comunican a las áreas de la ciencia, limitando la participación científica en los procesos de toma de decisiones. Por lo tanto, los científicos tienen escasa presencia en decisiones cruciales sobretemas como por ejemplo política de desarrollo social, interés por áreas específicas de ciencia y tecnología, políticas públicas de interés para la población, y otras donde probablemente el desarrollode la ciencia tendría profundos impactos en la solución de los problemas sociales de la nación. 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 Las reflexiones en torno al lugar del arte en la educación, como proceso social que busca equilibrar las oportunidades para el acceso a una formación rica y compleja, ha avanzado a pasos lentos en nuestro país. Es cierto que se ha logrado que las políticas públicas en cultura miren con menos recelo estas actividades en los ámbitos escolares y formativos, pero también es cierto que gran parte de su inserción se debe a un confuso trueque: cambiar prácticas artísticas por oscuridades de la violencia fruto del desamparo. La sospecha que pernocta en la alta institucionalidad política, aquella según la cual el arte desactiva violencias y por ende hay que potencializarlo en los cinturones de miseria, en las zonas de conflicto, en donde habita la pobreza, es una sesgada mirada a la que los artistas y formadores de arte le hemos hecho el juego, a cambio de unos centavos que nos permitan paliar las desventuras de la cotidianidad. Y es que, si bien es cierto que el arte es una magnífica terapia individual y social, lo es porque permite crear y simbolizar y poetizar las diversas crudezas que deparan los contextos de crisis. Pero más allá de ello, y es por donde quizá debemos cualificar los educadores del arte nuestros discursos, está la necesidad y la urgencia de que el arte tenga un rol propio en los procesos formativos: un papel menos determinista ni paliativo, aun a sabiendas de que, en todo caso, desde las prácticas artísticas sí es cierto que se forma a sujetos que preferirán -por una valoración ética- el gesto, el símbolo y la metáfora, antes que la acción segadora, radical, violenta.   Desde la Universidad Pedagógica, en su Facultad de Artes, hemos insistido en que no es suficiente la condescendencia, ni la contrajornada. Es preciso avanzar en una política integral que incorpore la educación artística (que no es la educación para el consumo del arte, ni para la detección temprana de talentos que “saquen la cara por el país” a todos los ámbitos de la educación, bajo el convencimiento de que la dimensión cognitiva que favorece el contacto con la acción creadora, transformadora, poética, simbólica que es inherente al arte, posiblemente tenga la virtud de despertar las dimensiones que demanda la comprensión compleja de los contextos y los entornos, que abra las compuertas a la invención, a la creación de alternativas nuevas para resolver problemas antiguos (no solo de las artes; que aliente la idea contemporánea de hombre libre, constructor de sus propias realidades, capaz de saberse dueño de sus saberes y sus destinos, de significar y re- significar constantemente sus entornos y sus ánimos, a medida que reconoce que la educación es un acto responsable, quizá el más revolucionario, que reinventa, transforma la materia, crea, recrea en medio de una sociedad laica que necesita que cada vez los ciudadanos se alejen más de los ámbitos retrógrados propios del pensamiento mágico y milagrero, para instalarse en un humanismo tan desenfadado como responsable, en donde el derecho al arte, al protagonismo como sujetos de la cultura, para la cultura, con la cultura, brinde a todos la oportunidad de saberse artífices, artistas de su propio entramado vital.

    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.

    Full Text Available El cambio vertiginoso y cada vez con una mayor aceleración en que se encuentra nuestro mundo se ha venido manifestando en forma dramática, desde los últimos años del siglo XX, en el proceso que hemos llamado La Globalización. Este proceso, producto principalmente de la revolución de las comunicaciones, es hoy día de consecuencias insospechadas. Más que en ninguna otra época de la humanidad, no sabemos hacia dónde se dirige esta transformación de la cual somos actores y objetos. Pocos se atreven a vaticinar lo que será el mundo de mañana. En el lapso de los últimos diez años ha cambiado casi completamente la forma en que trabajamos y, en gran medida, la forma en que nos relacionamos unos con otros. En la Universidad, por ejemplo, se ha desarrollado una forma de trabajo que no existía hace tan poco como diez años atrás: la de grupos de investigación interdisciplinarios que en tiempo casi real se transmiten las respectivas partes de sus tareas desde distintos puntos del globo. Así ocurre en numerosos campos de desarrollo de nuestra sociedad.

    Full Text Available Los procesos asociados con la apertura de la economía en el país y el establecimiento de nuevas relaciones en la producción, circulación y distribución de los recursos, son realidades innegables que han propiciado la evolución científica, tecnológica y organizacional en la que se encuentran inmersas las empresas nacionales en la actualidad. El proceso productivo, las nuevas formas de organización del trabajo y los requerimientos para competir en mercados internacionales han modificado sustancialmente los contextos laborales, volviéndolos más dinámicos y complejos. De igual manera, las exigencias de una sociedad cada vez más influenciada por el fenómeno de la globalización y la incursión de las nuevas tecnologías, han sido considerados como factores determinantes que de una manera u otra obligan a que la Universidad en el contexto general prepare a sus futuros profesionales para actuar en espacios diversos, delimitados por las necesidades que desde sus regiones se definan como prioritarias y que pudieren marcar una tendencia hacia un cambio de mentalidad con referencia al abordaje critico de sus problemáticas y, por ende, la contextualización adecuada de las soluciones que se propongan para hacer frente a las mismas. Es por lo anterior que la Universidad Simón Bolívar, consiente de su rol protagónico en la Región Caribe colombiana y el país, desde la concepción de su plan estratégico de desarrollo 2013 – 2017, consideró tener en cuenta varios de los referentes que desde diversos puntos de vista, son abordados y tratados en esta edición de la Revista Investigación e Innovación en Ingeniería, y que recogen las experiencias y resultados investigativos de un colectivo de profesionales de la región y el país en diversas temáticas asociadas con las ciencias sociales, la  tecnología, la innovación y el desarrollo regional. En dichos trabajos, se analizan entre otros aspectos, los elementos que en materia de ciencia y tecnología se presentan en la actualidad como principales indicadores del desarrollo regional, así como también reflexiones asociadas con procesos de innovación, entendida esta como un eslabón esencial para el fomento de la competitividad, por lo que ésta deberá ser asumida como un proceso de abordaje social que propenda por el desarrollo y dinamismo de las organizaciones empresariales de la región, desde una perspectiva integradora. De igual forma se hace referencia a la aplicabilidad del enfoque sistémico como aporte metodológico al proceso de fortalecimiento profesional del ingeniero de sistemas a partir de la incorporación de categorías de formación que desde lo académico propenden por  consolidar su rol protagónico en el mercado laboral de la región caribe colombiana. Finalmente, se abordan elementos que notan la aplicabilidad y el tratamiento analítico y contextualizado de los procesos asociados con el desarrollo de modelos de Gestión del Conocimiento en las empresas del sector TI con el objetivo de potenciar las relaciones de esencia entre el conocimiento y la generación de capital intelectual en las mismas.

    Full Text Available O quarto volume da Revista HOLOS de 2011 vem a público durante as comemorações do 102º aniversário desta grande rede chamada Instituto Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, no momento em que a Instituição vive um importante processo de internacionalização, com sua inserção no Programa Sem Fronteiras do Governo Brasileiro, além dos programas de cooperação com liceus e universidades franceses e com a Universidade do Minho, de Portugal. A HOLOS completa oito anos ininterruptos de publicação desde sua opção pela via digital, o que a elevou a patamares importantes de acesso (download em todo o mundo. Atualmente, o periódico alcança os vários continentes com 6,5% dos seus acessos advindos do exterior. A internacionalização da ciência brasileira também nos obriga a pensar em apresentar os artigos em português e inglês, o que vem sendo analisado, para implantação a partir de 2012. Este volume traz quinze artigos originários das seguintes instituições: IFRN, IFPB, IFMA, IFMT, UNESP, UFRN, UFERSA, UERN, UFPI e UFCG. Trata-se de contribuições nas mais diversas áreas, incluindo as engenharias ambiental, de materiais, química, sanitária, alimentos, bem como as áreas de geociências, de ensino de ciências, de filosofia e (auto formação docente. O primeiro artigo aborda os ciclos de cheias e secas do rio Cuiabá/MT, buscando mostrar como influenciam as relações sociais, culturais e econômicas da região, em especial a pesca e a qualidade de vida das suas comunidades ribeirinhas, que dependem da saúde ambiental do bioma. O segundo artigo, por sua vez, apresenta uma avaliação da qualidade da água do rio Açu/RN, usada na irrigação, no período compreendido entre outubro de 2009 e fevereiro de 2010. Uma análise da situação de implantação da Agenda Ambiental na Administração Pública (A3P nas secretarias de finanças, infraestrutura, saúde, meio ambiente e urbanismo do município de São Gonçalo do Amarante/RN é o tema do terceiro artigo. Já o quarto trabalho apresenta uma estudo da gestão da coleta seletiva dos resíduos sólidos pelo poder público municipal em Mossoró-RN. O estudo traz informações sobre a infraestrutura das associações que operam o sistema, e revela que, apesar do avanço, o sistema precisa ser ampliado para atender a totalidade da cidade. No quinto artigo, apresenta-se uma avaliação dos níveis de ruído no ambiente da biblioteca Tebyreça de Oliveira, considerando suas influências no desempenho de estudo dos estudantes. Os valores encontrados apontam para a necessidade de uma intervenção no sistema. Quanto ao sexto artigo, tem-se uma análise comparativa das propriedades termofísicas do gelo com fluidos secundários convencionais de uma fase usados em sistemas de refrigeração. O trabalho de número sete aborda a aplicação de compósitos com componente ecológica de sisal utilizada no tecido e matriz de resina poliéster. Os resultados dos testes de desempenho mecânico apresentam valores competitivos com aqueles convencionais. No que se refere aos dois trabalhos seguintes, estes apresentam estudos de caracterização de materiais, sendo que o primeiro analisa as características de SnO2 dopado com níquel e o segundo analisa as propriedades elétricas do SiO2 dopado com Bi2O3 sobre as propriedades elétricas e dielétricas do BaTiO3. Na sequência, a avaliação sensorial de goiabas passas obtida por técnicas combinadas de desidratação osmótica e secagem constitui o foco do décimo artigo. O décimo primeiro artigo discorre sobre a caracterização físico-química e sensorial de vinhos brancos da região do noroeste do Estado de São Paulo. Os quatro artigos seguintes trazem importantes contribuições na área de ensino, cujos objetos de investigação demonstram que a política pública educacional do governo federal foi acertada ao implantar o ensino de licenciaturas nos Institutos Federais. Assim, na área de ensino de geociência, enfocada no décimo segundo artigo, verifica-se uma técnica de replicação de fosseis de foraminífera a partir do reaproveitamento de isopor, cuja utilização foi testada com alunos do curso técnico de Mineração do IFPB. Na área de ensino de ciências, enfocada no artigo de número 13, é feito um resgate da sua evolução e suas metodologias para a inserção da história e filosofia em atividades experimentais. Nesse mesmo contexto, o décimo quarto artigo trata da filosofia aplicada na educação de jovens e adultos, sendo realizada uma contextualização histórica e apresentados os desafios da contemporaneidade. O estudo foi realizado no Campus Macau do IFRN. E, por último, mas não menos importante, o décimo quinto artigo, que é proveniente do Campus Ipanguaçu do IFRN, traz um estudo que busca estabelecer relações entre a pesquisa autobiográfica e a autoformação crítica de professores de Língua Inglesa, tendo como principal referência o pensamento do educador Paulo Freire. Finalizando mais esta edição, aproveitamos para parabenizar os autores pela publicação na HOLOS e agradecer aos avaliadores ad hoc pela valiosa colaboração na análise do material apresentado ao periódico. Fica, então, nosso convite à leitura e à interação! Os Editores Prof. José Yvan Pereira Leite e Prof. André Luis Calado de Araújo

A first set of measures was approved by CERN Council in December 2010 (CERN/2947). It concerned the members (current active staff) and beneficiaries (retired staff) of the Fund. Since the beginning of 2011, discussions have been focused, in particular, on the conditions offered to our future colleagues who will be recruited from 1st January 2012 onwards. A new pension plan for staff recruited from the beginning of 2012 Legal constraints have limited the possibility to modify the conditions for active staff (apart from the contribution rate) and for current beneficiaries (apart from non-indexation up to 8%).

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

    Magmatic degassing plays a key role in the dynamics of volcanic activity and also in contributing to the carbon, water and sulphur volatile cycles on Earth. Quantifying the fluxes of magmatic gas emitted from volcanoes is therefore of fundamental importance in Earth Science. This has been recognised since the beginning of modern volcanology, with initial measurements of volcanic SO2 flux being conducted with COrrelation SPECtrometer instruments from the late seventies. While COSPEC measurements continue today, they have been largely superseded by compact grating spectrometers, which were first introduced soon after the start of the 21st Century. Since 2006, a new approach to measuring fluxes has appeared, that of quantitative imaging of the SO2 slant column amount in a volcanic plume. Quantitative imaging of volcanic plumes has created new opportunities and challenges, and in April 2013 an ESF-funded MeMoVolC workshop was held, with the objectives of bringing together the main research groups, create a vibrant, interconnected, community, and examine the current state of the art of this new research frontier. This special issue of sixteen papers within the Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research is the direct result of the discussions, intercomparisons and results reported in that workshop. The papers report on the volcanological objectives of the plume imaging community, the state of the art of the technology used, intercomparisons, validations, novel methods and results from field applications. Quantitative plume imaging of volcanic plumes is achieved by using both infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, with each wavelength offering a different trade-off of strengths and weaknesses, and the papers in this issue reflect this wavelength flexibility. Gas compositions can also be imaged, and this approach offers much promise in the quantification of chemical processing within plumes. One of the key advantages of the plume imaging approach is that we can achieve gas flux measurements at 1-10 Hz frequencies, allowing direct comparisons with geophysical measurements, opening new, interdisciplinary opportunities to deepen our understanding of volcanological processes. Several challenges still can be improved upon, such as dealing with light scattering issues and full automation of data processing. However, it is clear that quantitative plume imaging will have a lasting and profound impact on how volcano observatories operate, our ability to forecast and manage volcanic eruptions, our constraints of global volcanic gas fluxes, and on our understanding of magma dynamics.

    Full Text Available PROFILE, as well as other publications in the area of English language teaching in Colombia, has witnessed how the teacher research movement has grown and become stronger in the past few years. This has been so thanks to the sustained work of recognized research groups as well as the involvement of less experienced teacher educators, school teachers, and novice teachers who have decided to incorporate the research activity into their teaching job. In addition, the reforms most initial teacher education programmes have undergone, as a means to bridge the gap between theory and practice, have had an impact on the attention given to the teaching and development of the research skills of pre-service teachers. Likewise, several professional development programmes include innovation and action research in their curricula as alternatives to systematically examine teaching practices and, hence, encourage change.

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

    Full Text Available In this 2008 first semester issue, INTERthesis main goal is to keep faithful to the objective of contributing to the interdisciplinary discussion in Human Sciences, presenting a few articles and an essay concerning the several areas of knowledge. The themes of the six articles are focused on philosophy, political science, environmental studies, education and public health, facing a multiplicity of objects unified by a supradisciplinary approach. The journal opens with an article which discusses the importance of the technological innovations as propellers of the economic development and public politics, starting from a social environmental analysis of the sugar-ethanol industrial activities in Brazil. The authors, Nivaldo Dos Santos, PhD in Law from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP, Charlene Maria de Ávida Plaza, Master in Law in the area of Integration and Relations from the University of Ribeirão Preto (UNAERP-SP, and Viviane Romeiro, Master’s Degree student in Planning of the Energetic System (UNICAMP-SP, without underestimating the economic practices of the sugar-ethanol companies, try to fight for an implementation of policies that promote a sustainability which matches economic, environmental and social interests. Next, Dirce Guilhen, PhD in Bioethics from the University of Brasilia, and professor at that same University, (UnB/DF, and Antonio Macena Figueiredo, doctoral student in Health Sciences (UnB/DF, take over the discussion on the distinctions and similarities between ethics and moral. The article, following the philosophical tradition, tries to clarify conceptual imprecision and confusion, so frequently found even in academic texts. The third article, by Leon Farhi Neto, Master in Philosophy and doctoral student at the Program of Post-Graduation in Philosophy at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC, makes an opportune incursion in the work of Michel Foucault in order to understand the notion of biopolitics, calling the attention to distinctions and identities between historically different mechanisms of power. The author tries to call the attention to the polissemic character of the notion of biopolitics. In the fourth article, Cláudia Hausman Silveira, doctoral student at the Interdisciplinary Program of Post-Graduation in Human sciences (DICH at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC, presents the issue of the family health, comparing the models that have inspired the construction of the Program of Family Health in Brazil, observing their differences and similarities. Moreover, she makes a comparative analysis among the Cuban, English, Canadian and Brazilian models, concluding that the Program multiprofessional proposal of work in interdisciplinary teams, in accordance with the Only System of Health (SUS, can assist in the fulfillment of the health law in the country. In the fifth article, the environmental issue is treated under the pedagogical point of view. Clayton Ângelo Silva Costa, Master in Environmental Sciences (UEMG presents results of a research carried through with private school teachers in the city of Contagem, Minas Gerais, showing the obstacles involving the application of the environmental education interdisciplinary project, focusing aspects of the atmospheric pollution. The last article approaches aspects of the Humanitarian International law. Geovane Machado Alves, Master’s Degree student in Public Law from the University of the Vale do Rio dos Sinos (UNISINOS, starts from the concept of solidarity and humanitarian intervention, and questions the Brazilian performance in Haiti as well as the legal paradigm of the international solidarism and its repercussions. Closing this issue, the theme is the public university itself and its current impasses and challenges. Héctor Ricardo Leis, PhD in Philosophy from the PUC-RJ, associated professor of the Sociology Department, and Selvino J. Assmann, PhD in Philosophy from the Pontificia Università Lateranense, Italy, professor of the Philosophy Department, both professors of the Interdisciplinary Doctorate in Human Sciences at the UFSC, evidence and discuss the impediments faced by the Brazilian public university in its relation with the Brazilian society as well as in its internal relations, insisting both on the necessity to fortify the merit and the academic excellence, and on the connection between a national project and the university project. Not only do we expect that the published papers represent good results of inquiries already accomplished, but also that they serve as an invitation for an increasing promotion of an interdisciplinary attitude in the Brazilian university life.

    Full Text Available Hay buenos motivos para dudar del concepto de sociedad de la información, puesto que la misma está inmersa en un proceso de globalización que desencaja los conceptos parcializados y especializados que se tiene del conocimiento. Los medios, la economía, la supranacionalización de las políticas no escapan a los fenómenos globalizantes de la cotidianidad.Nuestra modernidad occidental se corresponde con la era de la comunicación mundial. La percepción de los medios de comunicación constituye un hecho trascendental porque va más allá de lo enmarcado y observable. El centro del conocimiento sigue siendo el ser humano, pero no aislado y pensante, sino mediatizado por la tecnología electrónica usada en la cotidianidad. Los medios electrónicos nos hacen testigos de la simultaneidad de acontecimientos a la vez que crea espacios para nuevos conocimientos que generan confianzas y críticas en esta sociedad basada en la información.Los medios fascinan hasta tal punto que muchas personas los asumen de una manera fetichista, no por el mensaje que los medios transmiten, sino por la tecnología misma o, mejor dicho, por los aparatos, que transgreden las fronteras de la sociedad y el pensamiento. Pareciera que entre más técnica sean las circunstancias sociales, más irrelevante será su contexto.Con el fetichismo de la técnica y sus aparatos, se oculta lo social. Aún así, lo fascinante del medio se expresa en la preeminencia de la comunicación. La televisión, el cine, los computadores ciertamente son aparatos que sirven de interface entre los aspectos técnicos implícitos y los aspectos ideológicos y políticos presentes en el acto de comunicar, los cuales evolucionan sin considerar la capacidad de asimilación del ser humano.La realidad mediática y virtual se ha convertido en la infraestructura tecnológica de nuestras vidas cotidianas. Afortunadamente, existe un vínculo entre la complejidad del pensamiento y la artificialidad del medio que nos permite ser críticos de la realidad del conocimiento. La sociedad de la información es la sociedad del no conocimiento, porque con la presión de las tecnologías de información y la abrumadora cantidad de datos por procesar, pretendemos interpretar todos los fenómenos como problemas derivados del desconocimiento. De manera que la sociedad de la informaciónes también la sociedad del desconocimiento.La autoridad para el conocimiento pareciera centrarse no en el conocimiento mismo, sino en las fuentes de información. Internet es una prueba del lugar donde la credibilidad del conocimiento se cuestiona en forma más aguda. No importa mucho el grado de verdad que el conocimiento genera,sino que la confianza esté centrada en las fuentes de información. Por supuesto, esto ofende la moral científica del conocimiento. La ética debe aprender a convivir con la cada vez menor jerarquía de los valores.Se buscan mecanismos de validación (o contrastación del conocimiento a través de fuentes de información más confiables que aquellas dictaminadas por el mercado. De allí la importancia de los sistemas que registran a las fuentes hemerográficas. En Enl@ce, nos empeñamos en ser un referente confiable para la ciencia. No nos basta con publicar la verdad del conocimiento, tenemos que validar nuestras fuentes, para que la revista sea confiable en la producción científica de conocimiento.No nos ha hecho falta comercializar el conocimiento para hacer de la revista un punto referencial en los sistemas de difusión científica. La visibilidad de Enl@ce ha crecido exponencialmente sin tener que recurrir al mercado. Hemos sentado las bases para el desarrollo de aspectos asociados a programas de investigación, en particular a los aspectos concernientes a la difusión del conocimiento.Cada vez son más los índices que reconocen a Enl@ce como una fuente válida de conocimiento.Hemos sido incluidos en el Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ y en Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI, dos fuentes referenciales de amplio reconocimiento internacional. Recientemente,Redalyc, como sistema de información científica, ha clasificado a Enl@ce dentro del acervo de revistas de Ciencias de la Información y esto representa un avance en la difusión científica.Podemos exhibir con orgullo que somos parte del acervo iberoamericano que pretende romper la brecha del conocimiento científico disponible en la región.

    Full Text Available Climate change, sustainability, diversity, financial probity, gender and governance are profound and complex challenges facing local government today, and are all topics raised by the researchers and practitioners contributing to CJLG Issue 10. 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 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.

    Full Text Available The first 2007 issue of the INTERthesis journal evidences the heterogeneity of themes, problems and focuses peculiar to the area of Human Sciences. However, and in spite of this heterogeneity, all the texts here have something in common: the proposed approaches hold an interdisciplinary character. If this Journal has the goal of constructing a space of critical discussion, in which several subjects and kinds of knowledge can keep a conversation, based on the present polemic in the area of Human Sciences, we can say that this issue has fully reached this aim. The Journal presents at first a never-before published article by Edoardo Boncinelli, “Need and Contingency of the Human Nature” translated into Portuguese by Professor Selvino Assmann. Boncinelli is at present a member of the European Organization of Molecular Biology, and President of the Italian Society of Biophysics and Molecular Biology. This researcher of the biological sciences, professor at the University of Milan, approaches a very present theme. Boncinelli takes over the challenge of showing the difficulties inherent to the reductive explanations on human behavior. He shows the range and limitations of these discourses that, starting from explanations that are closer or further from the genetical determinism, cerebral neurophysiology or evolutionist biology, try to find determinist explanations to what is peculiar to the human condition, our capacity to make choices, and thehistorical, and consequently social and cultural determination of these choices. The second article resumes a classical and fundamental discussion, however a little forgotten in our delayed modernity. Selvino Assmann, professor of the Department of Philosophy at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC , and Nei Antonio Nunes, professor of Political Philosophy and Ethics at Unisul, analyze the role of the intellectuals as a criticism of the present. The article discusses the “re-reading” that Foucault applies to Kant’s text “What Illuminism is” and consequently discusses the role of the intellectuals under the light of the great transformations of the knowledge and practices of power in the last decades. I hope we can assume that one of the great challenges of our modernity is undoing the strategies of knowing that the human condition is intended to be reduced to a summation of molecular reactions and cerebral synapses. If we accept the challenge proposed by Assmann and Nunes of “reevaluating the field of possibilities of the practices of liberty, supporting the exercise of criticism” , we will be able to think that the two texts that open this INTERthesis issue can be read as being complementary. We can say that the first article puts into practice the exercise of this criticism of the present, which for Assmann and Nunes is the task of the intellectuals. Rafael Raffaelli, professor of the Department of Psychology of the UFSC, discusses, in his text “Note on Freudian Metapsychology”, the metapsychological distinction of the narcissistic instances in the work of Freud. This way, the criticism started by Bonicelli to the neurobiological determinism of the human condition roots itself in the text by Rafaelli, particularly in his affirmation of the Ego as submitted to “two complementary regulative instances, one which determines the interdiction (prohibition and the other which determines the personal goals (ambition to be reached”. The fourth article by Leandro Duarte Rust, doctorate student in Medieval History at the Federal Fluminense University, refers to the medieval clergymen. In “The compliment to the ones primitive of time: historians and medieval clergymen in the paradoxes of modernity”, Leandro performs a detailed and bright study of the analytical possibilities opened by the way of building history proposed by the School of the Annales. He shows that, beginning by this theoretical perspective, “there is no historian who, somehow, to a certain extent, doesn’t project his or her time over the non-coeval of the historical subject being studied”. The text, very well based, and with an elegant and careful writing, invites us to think, starting from a concrete historical example, of this game between past and present, between history and present time, things that have so greatly fascinated Foucault in his re-reading of the Kantian text analyzed by Assmann and Nunes. Elizabeth Borelli, PhD in Sociology and professor at PUC-SP, analyzes in her text, “Urbanization and environmental quality: the production process of the Brazilian coast space”, the question of the relationships between urbanization and the environmental quality in the coast zone and the crescent degradation of the coastal Eco-systems provoked by the urban expansion and economical interests. Finally, Sérgio Luís Boeira, PhD in Human Sciences at DICH/UFSC and professor at UNIVALI, and Paula Johns, Sociologist and Master in English and Studies of the International Development at the University of Roskilde, Denmark, approach a similar thematic; in this case, focusing the industry of the tobacco. The article “Industry of the Tobacco vs. Health World Organization: a historical confrontation among stakeholders social nets”, presents an introduction to the history of the tobacco industry in Brazil and intends to outline the relationship among the production, exportation and combat to the tobacco intake. Lastly, this issue counts, once more, with the precious cooperation of Professor Selvino Assmann – the translation of an intriguing and brave text written more than 200 years ago, in1791, by Olympe de Gouges, the “Declaration of the rights of the woman and citizen”. This text, translated into Portuguese, was primarily published by Assmann to honor the women on their day, on March 8, 2007 on the FloripaTotal News. The text was inserted here with a brief introduction by the translator. To conclude, let us go back to Boncinelli’s text. As we have seen, his interest is focused on the questioning of what might be considered necessary and a contingent in the human nature - very modern questioning, which is also expressed by Olympe de Gouges. For this question, we had the answer in 1791, an answer we seem condemned to repeat endlessly: “Women, wake up! The strength of reason is heard all over the Universe: recognize your rights. The powerful empire of Nature is no longer limited by prejudice, superstitions and lies.” Sandra Caponi Editor

The aim was to provide an informal setting where postgraduates from over the U.K. and Ireland could meet and discuss their research. Over the course of the two days ten papers were given, six of which are now published within this themed issue of Internet Archaeology. (A full list of forum paper titles are listed in vol 18.1 2006 of Mesolithic Miscellany. To encourage discussion across varying methodological and theoretical approaches, the meeting specifically avoided a set theme. The following articles, however, do share common themes such as past human diet, the move from a Mesolithic to Neolithic way of life and the integration of archaeology within its landscape setting.

    Full Text Available Las tradicionales funciones que debe cumplir la ciudad son habitar, trabajar y circular. De éstas, la última reviste una connotación especial, pues, al contrario de las otras, no tiene un asentamiento que de por sí transforme la ciudad. Más bien, circular tiene una dimensión temporal que nos afecta cuando lo necesitamos. Efectivamente, la disposición y localización de la vivienda crea la ciudad formal, crea lugares donde nos desarrollamos como personas, donde socializamos. La localización de los lugares de trabajo afecta su entorno –con mejores o peores efectos sobre éste- y los desplazamientos desde los lugares de habitación. Pero el transporte, aunque indudablemente afecta ese entorno, lo hace en la medida en que ocurre, no permanentemente. El transporte es como la urdimbre de la ciudad: teje hilos por los cuales se desplazan las personas para realizar las demandas que hacen a la ciudad.

    Full Text Available Givcn the nature of the process of education, the human groups for whom education is designed and with whom educating is, to a great degree, an intimate, social interaction, even the most superficial examination of the elements involved reveals a diversity of components which span most, if not all, aspects of human life. Some time ago it was recognized that our own education and the education of our fellow humans extends in length and breadth far outside the formal classrooms of primary, secondary, and postsecondary education. This said, it is not at all difficult to identify components of education such as life-long learning, social responsibilities, citizenship, gender based issues, and helping people develop their potential. What a contr8st these postmodern concepts of education make when compared with traditionally espoused notions of "back to basics" and "the three Rs", which, even as I write, are still perceived by many in the community to be by far the most suitable concepts by which wc may cope with the present and try to facc;; the future. This edition presents articles on education which are widely varied in nature, but nonetheless have application to the profession as manifest in its many forms. They have relevance, also, to important aspects of the ways in which we socialize and are socialized within the context of education and educating. These articles, then, are presented to encourage the examination of education through somewhat different lenses and to invite questions pertaining to where we are and where we are going.

Todos estos actores sociales, entre los que destacamos archivistas, bibliotecólogos, gestores culturales, líderes sociales, historiadores, culturalistas y artistas plásticos, son convocados para definir las acciones necesarias, los protocolos y los conceptos adecuados que harán de los discursos sociales un verdadero mecanismo de comunicación social. La labor no es simple, y se requiere de oídos atentos y palabras justas que busquen soluciones y permitan la construcción de un intercambio de ideas que cumpla con los propósitos de los vinculados y que en su construcción narrativa sea un discurso efectivo que permita a otros, en este caso las personas interesadas en la resolución de un conflicto armado en Colombia, construir escenarios de paz y reconciliación. En este sentido, destaco el proceso interdisciplinario de reflexión que se produce actualmente alrededor del tema de la memoria y el patrimonio material e inmaterial, no como estrategia meramente política, sino como proceso de mediación social que busca abrir nuevas perspectivas y miradas a problemas sociales que insisten en confrontar las estructuras hegemónicas existentes, seguros de estar avanzando en asuntos relacionados con el acceso a la información y la utilización de plataformas de validación social.

    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.
