    Full Text Available ¬†This issue of Seminar.net contains three articles that were written in connection with a Norwegian e-learning conference titled ‚ÄúNetworked collaboration, sharing and response‚ÄĚ. The conference was held in Mars 2008 in Trondheim, and the presentations from the conference is available (in norwegian language at http://www.nvu.no.¬†Networked collaboration was chosen as a theme because collaboration is important to achieve learning, according to the social-constructivistic pedagogy that has a strong standing in Norway, but how should this occur on the net? Sharing of content, as in digital learning resources, is a phenomenon with increasing popularity as described in the OECD-report ‚ÄúGiving Knowledge for Free‚ÄĚ. But to achieve reuse of content, not only publishing it, it is important with a networked community where the plethora of information can be sorted with relevance to specific topics. Response is about guiding, coaching and tutoring. In what ways may resources and tools be used to move in the direction of solving Bloom‚Äôs two sigma problem/challenge?¬†The first article, by Morten Flate Paulsen, shows how cooperative learning can be implemented successfully so that students have optimal individual freedom within online learning communities. The second article, by Carl F. Dons, shows how student teachers can be prepared to deal with pupils who have a wide range of experiences of the digital world. The third and last article, by Kristin Dale, is sharing experiences with multiple choice-tests to give midterm responses to students. In addition, this issue has a commentary article by Rune Krumsvik discussing the need to develop new practices for teachers and students on the background of the digital developments. The conference and articles covers three big themes. It may be difficult to find more important issues, apart from finding money and time to support its development.¬†Olav Skundberg, guest editorAssociate professor

  2. Innovation in the European Energy Sector and Regulatory Responses to It: Guest Editorial Note

    2018-02-01

    Full Text Available The European energy sector is an important economic sector that is also traditionally highly regulated. With the increasing tempo in which innovations in technology and markets occur, catalysed inter alia by the energy transition and accompanied by new formats of innovation (disruptive and bottom-up, the question arises whether existing regulatory frameworks sufficiently allow for such innovation and support its further development. From an editorial perspective, we argue that decentralization of energy production on the national level and that of regulatory responses to it, need more scholarly attention. In this guest editorial, the contributions of nine articles to our special issue on innovation in the European energy sector and regulatory responses to it, are addressed. First, lessons on regulatory response to innovations in European energy markets are drawn. Second, several types of responses are deduced and discussed. Finally, key observations and suggestions for further research are presented.

    Full Text Available It is an honor and a pleasure to have the December 2013 issue of Higher Learning Research Communications dedicate its issue to selected papers from the 4th International Conference on Teaching and Learning, held in Bangkok in November, 2013. The conference theme, Higher Learning in the ASEAN Context, highlights the emerging community of ten Southeast Asian nations and the upcoming launch of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC in 2015. The AEC will affect higher education systems in Southeast Asia in terms of harmonization of higher education and student mobility. This emerging regional demographic gives us a glimpse of the future of transnational education. The papers selected for this issue represent research both within and outside of ASEAN, all touching on aspects of transnational education. Jeannin reports on how diversity affects students’ learning in an international classroom in Thailand. Billingham, Gragg, and Bentley (Australia highlight technology integration as an internationalizing practice. Ling considers challenges and outcomes of bilingual teaching and learning at the graduate level in Vietnam, contributing to the postgraduate educational field, which has not been amply explored in this matter. Stetz and Bauman (US ask us to rethink the efficacy of recording our lectures for online viewing. Hartfield (Australia, Beltram-Cruz (Philippines, and Cruz (Philippines review new pedagogical paradigms utilizing technology. Al-Masum and Chowdhury report on problems and progress at Bangladesh Open University in bringing higher education to an underserved population. Throughout this issue, the authors bring a sense of internationality and the transnational transformation of higher education, along with the ubiquity of technology in the hands of the students and its impact on our teaching and learning styles. This issue of the HLRC Journal highlights some impacts that ASEAN and the AEC can and will have on higher education everywhere.

At present, in many areas across the world, wind and solar energy are providing substantial proportions of the total electrical demand......, rising to over 50% in certain regions. However, many renewable energy sources, e.g. modern variable speed wind turbines and photovoltaic systems, are significantly different from conventional thermal and hydropower generating technologies, since they synchronize to the electricity grid via power...... electronics converters, and so are not directly responsive to system frequency transients. As a result, there are significant challenges for maintaining a reliable and secure power system, particularly in areas with high penetration of wind/solar energy.

    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.

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available This editorial introduces the Focus Section on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV as a worldwide problem, which brings together six papers that are truly inter-national and interdisciplinary. They provide insights into IPV from nine different cultures ‚Äď China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States ‚Äď from scholars in the fields of psychology, gender studies, political science, and economics. The first three papers look at how widespread the experience of IPV is among different groups of women, examine selected risk factors associated with heightened vulnerability to victimization, and discuss consequences of intimate partner victimization. Another two papers place the problem of IPV in the wider context of societal perceptions and attitudes about victims and perpetrators of IPV in d ifferent countries, whereas the last paper examines the role of individual differences in the management of emotions in the escalation or de-escalation of relationship conflict. In combination, the papers highlight the interplay betwee n the macro level of social and cultural norms condoning the use of violence, the micro level of family relations and construction of couple relationships, and the individual level of attitudes and behaviors that precipitate IPV.

    Full Text Available It has been my pleasure to be the acting editor of IRRODL while Dr. Terry Anderson has been on sabbatical leave. While the value and need for academic sabbaticals has been passionately debated for decades (and will likely continue to be debated for decades to come, within the academy most, if not all, academics understand both the value and need for a career pause.An academic sabbatical is a prolonged leave, typically for one year after six years of continuous employment. Harvard University was the first to grant academics a sabbatical in 1880. The primary purpose was, and still is, to provide an opportunity for academics to fulfill a career goal (i.e., write a book, travel for research or an opportunity for collegial inter-visitations. The word ‚Äėsabbatical‚Äô has biblical origins connected to the practice of leaving land unplanted as a means of rejuvenation. The word originates from the Mosaic law of ancient Judea, during which farmers left land fallow for a year after six consecutive harvests. The spirit of rejuvenation and harvesting has remained unchanged within the academy. Similar to ‚Äėleaving the land unplanted,‚Äô academics ‚Äėleave the daily demands of university life‚Äô (e.g., teaching and service commitments for an opportunity to regenerate new ideas and pursue professional growth.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 It is a pleasure to write an editorial for the 6th issue of Veterinary Research Forum (VRF. Since its publication in June 2010, the journal has received a huge amount of welcome among the different walks of scientists and clinicians. 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. I am also extremely delighted to announce since the publication of previous issue, VRF has been added to the list of ISI (Institute of Scientific Information by Thomson Reuters Corporation. 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 ‚ÄúNutrigenomics & Its Applications in Animal Science‚ÄĚ. 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. Thus, your suggestions and ideas will be very welcome in this regard.We are always

    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 ‚Äúfinancial therapy‚ÄĚ leads those navigating the World Wide Web directly to the Journal. In conjunction with New Prairie Press, papers, reviews, and profiles are accessible to anyone in the world via the open access journal network, which makes it highly likely that authors will be referenced in additional manuscripts. It is definitely an exciting time to be involved in the development of financial therapy as a new field of study through the Journal.

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

    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.

My desire for an issue which would genuinely add to our knowledge of self-access, which would highlight some key but neglected SALL areas, and which would be suitably globally representative and geographically diverse in relation to SALL activity, may even have been surpassed.

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

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

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

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

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

Este processo foi realizado utilizando plataforma de software livre, reduzindo custos e resultando na eleva√ß√£o de downloads e cita√ß√Ķes de artigos, entre outros. Neste percurso, o n√ļmero de volumes publicados por ano avan√ßou de forma sistem√°tica, a saber, em 2004 foram publicados dois volumes, entre 2005 a 2008 foram tr√™s 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 peri√≥dico online, em ambiente de pleno √™xito de rela√ß√Ķes acad√™micas, foram publicados 46 volumes e 789 artigos. Agora, com caminhos abertos, o foco √© consolidar a internacionaliza√ß√£o do peri√≥dico.

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

    Full Text Available Sin lugar a dudas, las revistas acad√©micas se corresponden, la mayor√≠a de las veces, con el prestigio, la legitimidad y el posicionamiento de las instituciones educativas de nivel superior; en ellas se reflejan la tradici√≥n y la transformaci√≥n acad√©mica, cient√≠fica e investigativa. Permiten, de igual modo, hacer tangible y resguardar en la memoria de lo impreso el ethos de la Universidad: la consolidaci√≥n de comunidades acad√©micas y la producci√≥n de conocimiento. Sin embargo, para la concreci√≥n de este prop√≥sito, m√ļltiples tareas han de llevar a cabo quienes trajinan detr√°s de este tipo de publicaciones: la construcci√≥n de una pol√≠tica editorial, la consecuci√≥n y la recepci√≥n de art√≠culos, el sostenimiento de una comunidad de pares o √°rbitros para la evaluaci√≥n, la coordinaci√≥n de procesos como la revisi√≥n de estilo, la diagramaci√≥n y la impresi√≥n, el logro de su periodicidad... Aunado a esto, se encuentra la exigencia de cumplimiento con los c√°nones de los sistemas de clasificaci√≥n, citaci√≥n e indexaci√≥n que hoy en d√≠a ‚Äúlegitiman‚ÄĚ a las revistas en su labor de difusi√≥n del conocimiento acad√©mico. 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 publicaci√≥n en el √≠ndex, l√©ase los criterios de calidad otorgados en los sistemas creados para tal fin.

    -Space, we hope to generate a dynamic and interesting vision of the built environment that stands in contrast to journals whose subject matter is contained within a narrow vision of architecture and planning as constraining determinants of social space. While it is our intention to make space available on a continuing basis to a diversity of submissions, as is now the norm we intend to publish occasional ‚Äėthemed‚Äô 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‚Äôs 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. We also take this opportunity to welcome our editorial board members, whom we

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

    Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China. The Centre has a clear objective: to ‚Äėtranslate 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.‚Äô 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‚Äôs 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.

Relevant topics in higher education such as program evaluation and development, curriculum assessment and improvement, among others, are discussed. Transformation of tourism and hospitality education means the application of new educational approaches. In the first article, Goh proposes an integration of two educational models with the objective of promoting scholarship among tourism and hospitality institutions in Australia. Through a description of the current model of teaching, and the introduction of an integrated alternative model in tourism and hospitality, the author provides tools and activities that can be incorporated by educators into their teaching protocols and the curriculum. Harris, Martin and Martin studied a topic of much importance for counselor education programs: how to improve the wellbeing of counseling students in training to enhance professional competence. The participants of the study rated themselves in areas related to psychological well-being, personal growth, self

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

    Full Text Available Editorial Em 2011, a Revista HOLOS completa sete anos de sua transforma√ß√£o em peri√≥dico eletr√īnico, sob nossa editoria. Nesse per√≠odo, foram 303 artigos publicados com uma evolu√ß√£o cont√≠nua do n√ļmero de edi√ß√Ķes por ano, chegando este ano ao n√ļmero de seis edi√ß√Ķes anuais. No final do ano passado, inclu√≠mos uma ferramenta para acompanhamento dos locais de acesso dos IPs, de sorte que, para nossa surpresa, se identificou um elevado n√ļmero de acessos advindos do exterior, da ordem de 8% nos primeiros tr√™s meses da implanta√ß√£o do sistema. Associado a esses n√ļmeros, verificou-se ainda que, entre 2004 e 2010, os artigos publicados foram acessados 427 mil vezes, o que demonstra a consolida√ß√£o do peri√≥dico como fonte de pesquisa. Assim, √© com satisfa√ß√£o que apresentamos √† comunidade acad√™mica este primeiro volume da Revista HOLOS de 2011, composto de 15 artigos especialmente selecionados. O artigo que abre esta edi√ß√£o traz uma discuss√£o sobre as dimens√Ķes estrat√©gicas organizacionais dos Institutos Federais, com √™nfase 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 mam√£o com antioxidantes, cin√©tica de feij√£o e dimensionamento de biodigestor. Na √°rea ambiental, s√£o apresentados tr√™s artigos que tratam, respectivamente, de recursos h√≠dricos no Estado do Rio Grande do Norte, de debilidades de RCA na √°rea de petr√≥leo e da pegada de carbono. Na √°rea de inform√°tica, tem-se um artigo sobre templete mathing como t√©cnica computacional aplicada ao monitoramento de √°reas supervisionadas. Constam tamb√©m tr√™s trabalhos na √°rea de educa√ß√£o: o primeiro discorre sobre o ensino de f√≠sica e os livros did√°ticos na √°rea de ac√ļstica; o segundo discute a hist√≥ria e a filosofia da ci√™ncia no ensino m√©dio e a vis√£o de futuros professores; e o terceiro mostra

O esfor√ßo para ampliar a presen√ßa do Peri√≥dico no pa√≠s e no exterior √© apresentado atrav√©s das figuras 1 e 2, que mostram as origens dos artigos por regi√£o e por estado, que ora publicamos. ¬† Figuras dispon√≠veis no arquivo em pdf. ¬† Observa-se nas figuras acima que os artigos est√£o disseminados em doze estados brasileiros e um na Fran√ßa, destacando-se a regi√£o 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.

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 V√°vra 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.

    beneficio del saber. El conocimiento que se difunde en las revistas cient√≠ficas ha sido un negocio para las empresas encargadas de valorar cu√°l es el conocimiento que se debe distribuir; ello termina por convertirse en un proceso de apropiaci√≥n de la informaci√≥n cient√≠fica por parte de las empresas transnacionales de la informaci√≥n, que excluye de su apropiaci√≥n incluso a quien lo produce.Para las transnacionales de la ciencia, el reto del saber es su transformaci√≥n en mercanc√≠a. El control del conocimiento es un important√≠simo mecanismo de poder. Hoy en d√≠a, ese control est√° 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 cient√≠fico.La gran mayor√≠a de las revistas cient√≠ficas del mundo forman parte de este mecanismo perversode apropiaci√≥n intelectual. De ello no escapa el conocimiento producido por gran parte de las universidades del mundo. En una relaci√≥n bastante perniciosa para la sociedad, los investigadores venden el conocimiento para beneficio individual y no colectivo.Afortunadamente, sitios p√ļblicos y gratuitos en la Internet como DIALNET y REDALYC tienenla funci√≥n y el compromiso de contribuir a la difusi√≥n de la actividad editorial cient√≠fica que se produce, al permitir alojar las publicaciones sin costo alguno, lo cual incide en un aumento significativode la circulaci√≥n del conocimiento cient√≠fico.Esperamos que cada vez sean m√°s las fuentes que se comprometen con esta labor de difundir el conocimiento, para hacer de la ciencia un bien p√ļblico. S√≥lo 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 dem√°s, muy por el contrario, lo incrementa.

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

    generar futuro vivible, un escenario cada vez m√°s posible de Paz exige reconfigurar el proyecto educativo de la naci√≥n considerando volver a la persona, a la producci√≥n de sentido est√©tico de s√≠, al reconocimiento, la aceptaci√≥n propia y ajena, la construcci√≥n simb√≥lica de la reparaci√≥n 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 creaci√≥n factible. El Arte nos recuerda nuestra compleja plasticidad, lo que hace decir a Richard Rorty (1996, uno de los m√°s renombrados fil√≥sofos de la actualidad, que no hay humanos paradigm√°ticos; empero, una educaci√≥n centrada en la persona y nucleada en torno a procesos est√©ticos y pacificadores, abrir√° compuertas para su constituci√≥n. El arte es en s√≠ mismo acontecimiento, y, como la Paz, a√Īade vida a la vida, o si no observemos los efectos est√©ticos del perd√≥n y la reconciliaci√≥n en los que volvemos al n√ļcleo vital de la humanidad: el anhelo y la certeza de cambio. En el arte, como la educaci√≥n y en el perd√≥n: hay trasformaci√≥n, porque son, ante todo, conmemoraci√≥n de la vida, acontecimientos confirmativos. Lo decimos en palabras de Mario Perniola (2001 ‚ÄúPara la existencia de lo est√©tico 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, s√≠, al menos, moment√°neamente suspendidos‚ÄĚ.¬† (p. 194. ¬†¬† Referencias Deleuze, G.

    Full Text Available This issue of Libellarium features papers based on the presentations from the 2nd Publishing trends and contexts conference which took place in Pula, Croatia, on 8-9 December 2014. All papers were subject to evaluation and classification by two independent reviewers, according to the journal‚Äôs 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‚Äďthe 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‚Äô dilemma reports on a study of publishers‚Äô 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.

Com este n√ļmero, a revista atinge sua meta de publica√ß√£o de tr√™s volumes anuais, que vem sendo alcan√ßada h√° cinco anos, perfazendo um total de 15 edi√ß√Ķes no per√≠odo. Fruto das contribui√ß√Ķes cont√≠nuas dos grupos de pesquisa do IFRN, os quais apresentam resultados de pesquisas e experi√™ncias desenvolvidas nas diversas √°reas do conhecimento, a Holos se consolida ainda mais como um canal de difus√£o cient√≠fica e tecnol√≥gica, na medida em que toma uma dimens√£o nacional, mostrada pela expressiva presen√ßa de artigos de pesquisadores de outras institui√ß√Ķes. No primeiro artigo, que resulta de uma monografia de gradua√ß√£o em Controle Ambiental pelo IFRN, tem-se a abordagem de um tema da mais alta relev√Ęncia, em particular para o munic√≠pio de Natal-RN: a contamina√ß√£o do aqu√≠fero. Os autores avaliam as concentra√ß√Ķes de nitrato nas fontes de √°guas minerais e apontam que, em alguns casos, os √≠ndices encontrados j√° superam o valor m√°ximo recomend√°vel para a potabilidade. O artigo seguinte traz uma introdu√ß√£o √† automa√ß√£o residencial a partir da apresenta√ß√£o de dois sistemas de baixo custo, a saber: controle liga/desliga de uma bomba d‚Äô√°gua para reservat√≥rios e controle liga/desliga de l√Ęmpadas, que poderiam ser utilizados por portadores de necessidades especiais. Na seq√ľ√™ncia, o terceiro trabalho analisa a import√Ęncia do projeto pol√≠tico-pedag√≥gico (PPP do CEFET-RN e avalia a sua contribui√ß√£o para um processo de inclus√£o educacional, destacando a preocupa√ß√£o institucional com o tema.

    Full Text Available EDITORIAL ¬† Com temas diversos, unidos por uma perspectiva interdisciplinar comum, apresentamos mais um n√ļmero da nossa revista eletr√īnica, relativa ao segundo semestre de 2008. Inicialmente temos um instigante artigo de Fabio di Clemente, Doutor em Filosofia pela Universidade de Urbino (It√°lia, na qual foi docente de Hist√≥ria da Tradi√ß√£o dos Povos e diretor did√°tico do Mestrado em Hist√≥ria do Pensamento Filos√≥fico, Pol√≠tico e Pedag√≥gico. O texto procura investigar, sobretudo atrav√©s da obra de Merleau-Ponty, o significado de uma poss√≠vel recupera√ß√£o das no√ß√Ķes de fundamento e de subjetividade. Frente √†s autocr√≠ticas, √†s crises e ao desejo de supera√ß√£o que tais no√ß√Ķes produziram em si mesmas atrav√©s da hist√≥ria, o autor procura aqui requalific√°-las tanto em rela√ß√£o √† tradi√ß√£o filos√≥fica quanto em rela√ß√£o √† reflex√£o sobre a ci√™ncia como tal, defendendo uma supera√ß√£o de um quadro metodol√≥gico dualista e reducionista. Nessa perspectiva, a no√ß√£o de subjetividade, situada dentro da corporeidade e dentro do ‚Äúplano de ser‚ÄĚ, pode ser redescoberta na sua ‚Äúvoca√ß√£o ontol√≥gica‚ÄĚ, para al√©m de toda equivocidade. O texto busca, em s√≠ntese, apresentar-se como uma releitura das rela√ß√Ķes entre a filosofia e a ci√™ncia a partir do conceito de corpo. A seguir, Ant√īnio Macena Figueiredo, Doutorando do Programa de P√≥s-Gradua√ß√£o em Ci√™ncias da Sa√ļde (UnB/DF, Volnei Garrafa, Doutor em Ci√™ncias pela UNESP, orientador do Programa de P√≥s-Gradua√ß√£o em Ci√™ncias da Sa√ļde, Coordenador da C√°tedra UNESCO de Bio√©tica da UnB, Coordenador do Programa de P√≥s-Grada√ß√£o em Bio√©tica da UnB, e Jorge Alberto Cord√≥n Portillo, Doutor em Ci√™ncias da Sa√ļde pela UnB, discutem o ensino da bio√©tica na √°rea das Ci√™ncias da Sa√ļde no Brasil.

Este come√ßo de ano traz novos desafios e promete ares pr√≥speros a Encontros Bibli. Com este n√ļmero, iniciamos uma nova etapa: passamos da periodicidade semestral para quadrimestral. Al√©m disto, a revista continua seu processo de internacionaliza√ß√£o, contando com colabora√ß√Ķes de um corpo editorial e com autores renomados da Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o mundial. Combinado com a internacionaliza√ß√£o e com nova periodicidade, continuamos mantendo nosso foco no compromisso com a qualidade.

Thus, ETD will be in accordance with the evaluation requirements of Qualis/CAPES: among the criteria for A1 qualification journals must be published quarterly. Seeking to pass from the stratum A2 to A1 the change in periodicity is essential, since in the last qualification Digital Thematic Education had not attended only this criterion of periodicity.Referring to the assessment of databases and directories: Scopus (Elsevier, Web of Science (Thomson Reuters/ISI, RedALyC and SciELO, the evaluation is in progress.

Tanto Manovich quanto Ziegfried estudam as novas m√≠¬≠dias no fluxo das conquistas que marcaram a civiliza√ß√£o ocidental. Por isso, os dois estudiosos recorrem √† arqueologia. O segundo semestre de 2001 foi particularmente rico de eventos na √°rea dos estudos de comunica√ß√£o e da semi√≥tica. Dentre as reuni√Ķes cient√≠¬≠ficas realizadas, dois foram noticiados nessa edi√ß√£o. O IV Encontro Internacional sobre o Pragmatismo e o V Congresso Brasileiro de Semi√≥tica. A II Mostra Interpoesia tamb√©m mereceu espa√ßo nessa sess√£o. Obras fundamentais foram lan√ßadas enriquecendo os t√≠¬≠tulos de nossa pesquisa acad√™mica. Foram resenhados os livros sobre as matrizes do pensamento, de Lucia Santaella, sobre arquitetura urbana, de Lucr√©cia Ferrara, sobre a obra de Kellreuter fazem parte dessa galeria. Na sess√£o de projeto, Paulo Angerami apresenta sua pesquisa fotogr√°fica com c√Ęmeras. Embora o projeto editorial de Gal√°xia tivesse concebido a sess√£o de not√≠¬≠cias para o relato de eventos culturais, cient√≠¬≠ficos e art√≠¬≠sticos, a revista n√£o se deixa de noticiar as perdas de pessoas ilustres.

A defini√ß√£o de crit√©rios mais altos na sele√ß√£o de avaliadores, a introdu√ß√£o de um formul√°rio de avalia√ß√£o dos artigos para guiar os pareceristas sobre os aspectos que devem ser avaliados e a manuten√ß√£o da periodicidade na publica√ß√£o das edi√ß√Ķes levaram √† incorpora√ß√£o da revista em v√°rios indexadores nacionais e internacionais de prest√≠gio. A presen√ßa nesses indexadores e a utiliza√ß√£o de outras plataformas virtuais, como o facebook, no qual o peri√≥dico recentemente atingiu a marca de mil curtidores, por sua vez, ampliou a divulga√ß√£o das atividades editoriais da revista como as chamadas de artigos e expandiu largamente o n√ļmero de acessos, que ultrapassam uma centena de milhares de acessos por ano. Os avan√ßos nessa edi√ß√£o ficam por conta da incorpora√ß√£o da revista a mais um indexador importante, o Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ. Al√©m disso, houve o acr√©scimo de importantes ferramentas internas que melhoram os processos de edi√ß√£o do peri√≥dico, tal como o desenvolvimento [ainda em constru√ß√£o] de um manual de ‚Äúpasso a passo‚ÄĚ indicando cada etapa de edi√ß√£o da Em Tese, bem como, um guia de orienta√ß√Ķes de posturas √©ticas para nortear e sistematizar o trabalho dos membros do corpo editorial.

    Full Text Available Gal√°xia chega ao seu segundo n√ļmero. Passada a cerim√īnia de batismo, √© hora de enfrentar a n√£o menos dif√≠¬≠cil tarefa de garantir a consolida√ß√£o de seu perfil editorial na √°rea de sua compet√™ncia cient√≠¬≠fica. Espera-se que os leitores de Gal√°xia - ou, quem sabe?, seus futuros colaboradores - estejam cada vez mais esclarecidos sobre a op√ß√£o pela diversidade, tanto aquela que diz respeito √† transdisciplinaridade, quanto aquela que acolhe a variedade tem√°tica, base da linha editorial que desenhou esse projeto. Concebida como uma constela√ß√£o - que se explicita na escolha do nome, no design gr√°fico, nas articula√ß√Ķes das √°reas envolvidas - Gal√°xia n√£o se enquadra no perfil das revistas tem√°ticas que se fecham em torno de uma √ļnica quest√£o ou de um mesmo objeto, compilando sobre eles os v√°rios pontos de vista ou seus desdobramentos poss√≠¬≠veis. Isso n√£o quer dizer que n√£o haja nela espa√ßo para esse tipo de encaminhamento. Na verdade, Gal√°xia procurou desenhar um lugar - as sess√Ķes - em fun√ß√£o dos g√™neros que re√ļnem um conjunto diferenciado de abordagens, assegurando, assim, a transdisciplinaridade. Para os ensaios tem√°ticos projetou o F√≥rum; para os textos anal√≠¬≠ticos, a sess√£o Artigos. Not√≠¬≠cias, Projetos, Di√°logos, Entrevistas e outros g√™neros que possam ser incorporados no futuro definem as sess√Ķes que tanto podem estar centradas num √ļnico tema quanto abertas para explora√ß√Ķes diversificadas. Cada uma, a seu modo, oscila entre o car√°ter ensa√≠¬≠stico, a an√°lise aplicada ou experimenta√ß√£o cr√≠¬≠tico-criativa. Neste segundo n√ļmero, a se√ß√£o F√≥rum acolheu dois ensaios que enfrentam a dif√≠¬≠cil tarefa de explicitar n√£o s√≥ a ess√™ncia como tamb√©m o car√°ter da abordagem semi√≥tica para a compreens√£o e an√°lise da comunica√ß√£o pol√≠¬≠tica.

This begs the question of what cultural analysis can and ought to do ‚Äď beyond the scope of acting as a witness for truth and delivering facts...... to a whole new genre of business empiricism ‚Äď and how to avoid reducing ethnographically-based cultural analysis to a simple matter of methods.

  7. Unlocking Flexibility: Energy Systems Integration [Guest Editorial

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    O' Malley, Mark; Kroposki, Benjamin

    2017-01-01

    The articles in this special section focus on energy systems integration (ESI). Electric power systems around the world are experiencing great changes, including the retirement of coal and nuclear plants along with a rapid increase in the use of natural gas turbines and variable renewable technologies such as wind and solar. There is also much more use of information and communications technologies to enhance the visibility and controllability of the grid. Flexibility of operation, the ability of a power system to respond to change in demand and supply, is critical to enable higher levels of variable generation. One way to unlock this potential flexibility is to tap into other energy domains. This concept of interconnecting energy domains is called ESI. ESI is the process of coordinating the operation and planning of energy systems across multiple pathways and/or geographical scales to deliver reliable, cost-effective energy services with minimal impact on the environment. Integrating energy domains adds flexibility to the electrical power system. ESI includes interactions among energy vectors and with other large-scale infrastructures including water, transport, and data and communications networks, which are an enabling technology for ESI.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Pluth, Michael D.; Raymond, Kenneth N.

    2006-09-01

    Synthetic chemists have provided a wide array of supramolecular assemblies able to encapsulate guest molecules. The scope of this tutorial review focuses on supramolecular host molecules capable of reversibly encapsulating polyatomic guests. Much work has been done to determine the mechanism of guest encapsulation and guest release. This review covers common methods of monitoring and characterizing guest exchange such as NMR, UV-VIS, mass spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and calorimetry and also presents representative examples of guest exchange mechanisms. The guest exchange mechanisms of hemicarcerands, cucurbiturils, hydrogen-bonded assemblies, and metal-ligand assemblies are discussed. Special attention is given to systems which exhibit constrictive binding, a motif common in supramolecular guest exchange systems.

  20. EDITORIAL: Announcement of closure

    Science.gov (United States)

    1999-12-01

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

    The person celebrating CERN's 25th anniversary whose photograph we published last week was not just any guest. Readers have pointed out that it was Wim Klein, whose remarkable abilities are part of CERN's history. Well known as one of the best "human calculators", Wim was recruited by CERN in 1957 to verify computer programs, which at the time were still stumbling. Moreover, he regularly beat their speed in calculating and gave breath-taking demonstrations. During one such demonstration in September 1973, he calculated the 19th root of a 133-digit number in less than 2 minutes√ā¬†!

    The main objective of this special issue is to collect and disseminate publications that highlight recent advances and breakthroughs in the area of renewable energy resources. The use of these resources for production of electricity is increasing rapidly worldwide. As of 2015, a majority of countries have set renewable electricity targets in the 10%-40% range to be achieved by 2020-2030, with a few notable exceptions aiming for 100% generation by renewables. We are experiencing a truly unprecedented transition away from fossil fuels, driven by environmental, energy security, and socio-economic factors.Electric machines can be found in a wide range of renewable energy applications, such as wind turbines, hydropower and hydrokinetic systems, flywheel energy storage devices, and low-power energy harvesting systems. Hence, the design of reliable, efficient, cost-effective, and controllable electric machines is crucial in enabling even higher penetrations of renewable energy systems in the smart grid of the future. In addition, power electronic converter design and control is critical, as they provide essential controllability, flexibility, grid interface, and integration functions.

    2015-07-01

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

    The Astrobee Research Facility will maintain three identical free-flying Astrobee robots on the ISS. After the Astrobees are launched and commissioned in 2018, they will replace the SPHERES robots that have been operating on the ISS since 2006 (Fig. 2). Over the years, the SPHERES have been among the most-used payloads on the ISS, supporting dozens of experiments from a variety of guest scientists. In the next section, we'll talk about past SPHERES experiments as possible inspiration for your future research on Astrobee. Compared to SPHERES, the Astrobee robots will offer many new capabilities and will require less astronaut time to support, so we hope the new facility will be able to fly experiments much more often.

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

    Full Text Available The continuous growth of competition in the hospitality sector has created the need to retain guests and prevent them from switching company due to better offer or saturation. Loyal customers are a valuable asset for catering companies, not only because of the awareness of the effects of customer loyalty. They tend to spread word-of-mouth advertising, more tolerant to price changes, as well as they casually create a linkage to their friends, relatives, colleagues, and other probable consumers and thus enable businesses to uphold a guest's base. By recognizing loyalty guests' importance, the global hospitality industry created monetary and non-monetary rewards for loyal visitors, delayed gratification (points collection and immediate rewards, as well as numerous other reward systems that try to keep them. To win customer loyalty, together with all benefits arising from it, caterers need to become familiar with factors, which determine guests' loyalty. The paper will show the results of research regarding the impact of the service quality and guests' satisfaction to their loyalty. Many authors have confirmed that employees' satisfaction affected customers' satisfaction, so this paper will give an answer does it influence on customers' loyalty as well.

    Full Text Available GUEST EDITORIALThis special issue of TOJDE is centred around the theme of ‚ÄėWeb 2.0 and Social Software in Distance Education‚Äô. The Web 2.0 (O‚ÄôReilly, 2005 movement, epitomised by such nascent technologies as blogs, wikis, RSS, podcasting, as well as tag-based folksonomies, social networking, collaborative editing and peer-to-peer (P2P media sharing applications, is purported to be redefining the way we conceive and make use of the Internet, and is enjoying considerable attention and popularity in both mainstream society and education. A major aim of this issue is to encourage ongoing discussion on the question of whether, and if so, in what ways, the advent and continued growth of Web 2.0 and social software has specific implications for the field of online and web-based distance education. The special issue opens with an article by P. Clint Rogers, Stephen W. Liddle, Peter Chan, Aaron Doxey and Brady Isom (all from the USA argue that the emergence of Web 2.0 technologies, and the possibilities and the realities they represent, are fuelling profound changes to theoretical views of learning and teaching. According to the authors, in contrast to earlier e-learning efforts that simply replicated traditional models of learning and teaching in online environments, ‚ÄėE-Learning 2.0‚Äô offers opportunities to move away from the highly centralised industrial model of learning of the past era, towards achieving individual empowerment within a global learning community. They also argue that as the personal, social and flexible technologies of Web 2.0 proliferate, the importance of re-usability and interoperability will also increase; correspondingly there is also a need for standardisation efforts to support the attainment of these goals. The second article, focuses on the use of specific Web 2.0 technologies written by Abdullah Kuzu (Anadolu University, Turkey looks at pre-service teachers‚Äô perceptions of the use of blogs for instruction and

    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 ata√Īe el patrimonio cient√≠fico y cultural, sino a la presentaci√≥n, puesto que se consider√≥ en las deliberaciones que la revista de la Academia Nacional de Medicina debe mostrar definidamente algo de la majestad inherente a su categor√≠a aut√©nticamente nacional que exige culto a la tradici√≥n ecum√©nica representada en este caso por el emblema de Esculapio y a la vez a la historia vern√°cula representada simb√≥licamente aqu√≠. En primer lugar, por MEDICINA que es la continuidad de la original REVISTA MEDICA existente en el siglo pasado, a la saz√≥n publicaci√≥n peri√≥dica de la sociedad de MEDICINA Y CIENCIAS NATURALES cuando fue promulgada la Ley 71 de 1890 que la convirti√≥, por acuerdo y voluntad del Gobierno Nacional de esa √©poca y de los siguientes, en ACADEMIA NACIONAL DE MEDICINA DE COLOMBIA Y cuyo art√≠culo 70. reza as√≠..."LA REVISTA MEDICA ser√° el peri√≥dico oficial de la Academia"; y en segundo lugar por la diagramaci√≥n interior ilustrada ahora con dise√Īos de nuestro arte precolombino, cultura Tumaco para esta edici√≥n.

The texts, authors and genres approached do not necessarily have to limit themselves to the authors canonically commended to the occidental Parnassus.

Object of attention can and should also be artists in different platforms, such as cinema, comic, television, music, internet, video game console, and even smartphone devices.

    The continuous growth of competition in the hospitality sector has created the need to retain guests and prevent them from switching company due to better offer or saturation. Loyal customers are a valuable asset for catering companies, not only because of the awareness of the effects of customer loyalty. They tend to spread word-of-mouth advertising, more tolerant to price changes, as well as they casually create a linkage to their friends, relatives, colleagues, and other probable consumers...

  16. Foreign Guests in Ancient Greece

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Xen√≠a was a special relationship between a foreign guest and his host in Ancient Greece. The ritual of hosting a foreigner included an exchange of objects, feasting, and the establishment of friendship between people from different social backgrounds. This relationship implied trust, loyalty, friendship, and mutual aid between the people involved. Goods and services were also exchanged without any form of payment. There were no formal laws governing xen√≠a ‚Äď it was based entirely on a moral appeal. Mutual appreciation between the host and the guest was established during the ritual, but the host did retain a certain level of superiority over the guest. Xen√≠a was one of the most important institutions in Ancient Greece. It had a lot of features and obligations similar to kinship and marriage. In literary sources the word x√©nos varies in meaning from ‚Äúenemy stranger‚ÄĚ, ‚Äúfriendly stranger‚ÄĚ, ‚Äúforeigner‚ÄĚ, ‚Äúguest‚ÄĚ, ‚Äúhost‚ÄĚ to ‚Äúritual friend‚ÄĚ, and it is often hard to tell which usage is appropriate in a given passage. The paper describes the emphasis on hospitality towards foreigners. It presents an example of a depiction indicating xen√≠a is presented, as well as several objects which were traded during the ritual. The paper also addresses the importance of hospitality in Greek drama in general, especially with examples of violations of the hospitality code.

    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. Institute of Physics Publishing (IOP) took over the publishing of PMB in

From previous research, guests’ perceived value consisted of some functional value, emotional value, and social value. Based on guest experience, and functional value consisted of physical evidence, guest room, food and beverage, hotel staff, and price. This research was conducted in four-star hotels in Jakarta. The respondents were the guests who had stayed in four-star hotels. The number of the respondent was 405. The data were obtained by using self-administered questionnaires. This research shows that guests have not perceived superior value. Some of the values and the necessary efforts need to be improved.

    On July 14, 2015, after 9.5 years of cruise, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew past the Pluto system to gather first images humankind had ever seen on Pluto and its five moons. While much has been discovered about the Pluto system since New Horizons launch in 2006, the system has never been imaged at high resolution and anticipation of the "First Light" of the Pluto system had been anticipated by planetary enthusiasts for decades. The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), which built and operates New Horizons, was the focal point for gathering three distinct groups: science and engineering team members; media and public affairs representatives; and invited public, including VIP's. Guest operations activities were focused on providing information primarily to the invited public and VIP's. High level objectives for the Guest Operations team was set to entertain and inform the general public, offer media reaction shots, and to deconflict activities for the guests from media activities wherever possible. Over 2000 people arrived at APL in the days surrounding closest approach for guest, science or media operations tracks. Reaction and coverage of the Guest Operations events was universally positive and global in impact: iconic pictures of the auditorium waving flags during the moment of closest approach were published in media outlets on every continent. Media relations activities ensured coverage in all key media publications targeted for release, such as the New York Times, Science, Le Monde, and Nature. Social and traditional media coverage of the events spanned the globe. Guest operations activities are designed to ensure that a guest has a memorable experience and leaves with a lifelong memory of the mission and their partnership in the activity. Results, lessons learned, and other data from the New Horizons guest operations activity will be presented and analyzed.

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

    2008-05-21

    The host-guest stability constants for the inclusion of a series of small neutral polar organic guests in cucurbit[7]uril (CB[7]) have been determined in aqueous solution by (1)H NMR titrations. The dependence of the stability constant on the nature of the guests indicates that hydrophobic and dipole-quadrupole interactions are responsible for the binding. The complexation-induced chemical shift changes in the guest proton resonances, coupled with energy-minimization calculations, suggest that the guests are located such that their dipole moment is aligned perpendicular with the quadrupole moment of the CB[7] host. The stability constants for acetone and acetophenone decrease in the presence of Na(+) or K(+) cations as a result of cation capping of the CB[7] portals.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available At its general term, this paper discusses the role of guest lecturers in higher education. More precisely, the paper considers the role of guest lecturers in tourism Management programmes taught to student in Universities. The paper examines theory and literature relating to tourism studies and higher education in general. It discusses the relevance of guest speakers in universities and examines their contributions towards tourism programmes. The paper discusses lecturers in tourism degrees suggesting that they might lack industry experiences but are still required to deliver theories to students and are seen as classroom managers and student mentors. The paper further investigates how lecturers and guest speakers are perceived as two different entities by students where lecturers are seen as classroom managers and guest speakers are seen as the industry knowledge providers. As internationalization of education becomes the focus of higher education institutions that aim to deliver education in a more international context, guest speakers that address local practical occurrences become less appealing. With the rapid spread of distant learning and online education, the paper concludes that guest lecturers are not the solution for perfect academic experiences in higher education in general and specifically in tourism programmes.

    The understanding and eventual control of guest molecule transport in gas hydrates is of central importance for the efficient synthesis and processing of these materials for applications in the storage, separation, and sequestration of gases and natural gas production. Previously, some links have been established between dynamics of the host water molecules and guest-host hydrogen bonding interactions, but direct observation of transport in the form of cage-to-cage guest diffusion is still lacking. Recent calculations have suggested that pairs of different guest molecules in neighboring cages can affect guest-host hydrogen bonding and, therefore, defect injection and water lattice motions. We have chosen two sets of hydrate guest pairs, tetrahydrofuran (THF)-CO{sub 2} and isobutane-CO{sub 2}, that are predicted to enhance or to diminish guest‚Äďhost hydrogen bonding interactions as compared to those in pure CO{sub 2} hydrate and we have studied guest dynamics in each using {sup 13}C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) methods. In addition, we have obtained the crystal structure of the THF-CO{sub 2} sII hydrate using the combined single crystal X-ray diffraction and {sup 13}C NMR powder pattern data and have performed molecular dynamics-simulation of the CO{sub 2} dynamics. The NMR powder line shape studies confirm the enhanced and delayed dynamics for the THF and isobutane containing hydrates, respectively, as compared to those in the CO{sub 2} hydrate. In addition, from line shape studies and 2D exchange spectroscopy NMR, we observe cage-to-cage exchange of CO{sub 2} molecules in the THF-CO{sub 2} hydrate, but not in the other hydrates studied. We conclude that the relatively rapid intercage guest dynamics are the result of synergistic guest A‚Äďhost water‚Äďguest B interactions, thus allowing tuning of the guest transport properties in the hydrates by choice of the appropriate guest molecules. Our experimental value for inter-cage hopping is slower by a factor of 10

    Full Text Available We‚Äôve reached the end of another year of publication at EBLIP, my first at the helm as Editor‚Äźin‚ÄźChief, 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‚Äźwin 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‚ÄźNovember. Andrea is currently attending the University of

    A novel family of water-soluble, polyoxocationic titanium-oxide host-guest clusters are reported herein. They exhibit an unprecedented hexagonal prismatic core structure for hosting univalent cationic guests like K + , Rb + , Cs + and H 3 O + . Guest exchange has been studied using 133 Cs NMR, showing the flexible pore of a host permits passage of a comparatively larger cation and giving an equilibrium constant of ca. 13 for displacing Rb + by Cs + . Attractive ion-dipole interaction, depending on host-guest size complementarity, plays a dominant role for the preferential encapsulation of larger alkali-metal cationic guests.

    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‚Äôt 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 ‚Äúprinciples of conduct or standards of behaviour governing an individual or profession‚ÄĚ (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 ‚Äúethical approval‚ÄĚ 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

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

    CONSPECTUS: As the star compounds in host-guest chemistry, the syntheses of crown ethers proclaimed the birth of supramolecular chemistry. Crown ether-based host-guest systems have attracted great attention in self-assembly processes because of their good selectivity, high efficiency, and convenient responsiveness, enabling their facile application to the "bottom-up" approach for construction of functional molecular aggregates, such as artificial molecular machines, drug delivery materials, and supramolecular polymers. Cryptands, as preorganized derivatives of crown ethers, not only possess the above-mentioned properties but also have three-dimensional spatial structures and higher association constants compared with crown ethers. More importantly, the introduction of the additional arms makes cryptand-based host-guest systems responsive to more stimuli, which is crucial for the construction of adaptive or smart materials. In the past decade, we designed and synthesized crown ether-based cryptands as a new type of host for small organic guests with the purpose of greatly increasing the stabilities of the host-guest complexes and preparing mechanically interlocked structures and large supramolecular systems more efficiently while retaining or increasing their stimuli-responsiveness. Organic molecules such as paraquat derivatives and secondary ammonium salts have been widely used in the fabrication of functional supramolecular aggregates. Many host molecules including crown ethers, cyclodextrins, calixarenes, cucurbiturils, pillararenes, and cryptands have been used in the preparation of self-assembled structures with these guest molecules, but among them cryptands exhibit the best stabilities with paraquat derivatives in organic solvents due to their preorganization and additional and optimized binding sites. They enable the construction of sophisticated molecules or supramolecules in high yields, affording a very efficient way to fabricate stimuli

  5. Analysis of guest binary mixtures by tert-butylcalix[6]arene using host memory of previously bound guests.

    A new principle of quantitative and qualitative analysis of binary organic mixtures is offered, which is based on an ability of calixarene receptor for specific polymorphic transitions related to the composition of the analyzed guest mixture. The ability of tert-butylcalix[6]arene to remember selectively some guests bound from headspace both of pure liquids and their binary mixtures is used. The image of guest mixture remains written in metastable polymorphs of host after partial or complete guest elimination from clathrates. The memory was read using differential scanning calorimetry as the enthalpy of exothermic polymorphic transition of host collapse. This enthalpy monotonously changes with the variation of guests' ratio in mixture, unlike the enthalpies of endothermic pseudopolymorphic transitions of guest release. So, the composition of volatile binary mixture can be estimated using only one receptor and only one its parameter even in absence of preferential binding from a binary mixture of guests. This is an example of a genuine molecular recognition.

    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

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 ‚Äústructured flexibility‚ÄĚ. 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‚Äôs 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.

    This focus section of the International Journal of Conflict and Violence is dedicated to violence and violence research in the Global South. It examines the causes, forms, perpetrators, processes, and outcomes of violence. While the contributions go into detail on what is commonly understood as politically motivated violence, they also examine societal, criminal, urban, and gendered violence, as well as the involvement of youth. Four articles explore the significance of violence in specific regions: Africa south of the Sahara, West Asia and North Africa, East Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean. The authors describe and assess the state of research within and about the different countries. Two further articles review the body of research on the causes of civil war, which has
    been the dominant issue in much violence-related research on the global South since the end of the Cold War.

After some 10 years of the radical intrusion of a range of technologies, principally those grouped around what has been broadly termed ICT, we have the chance to see if and how the world of ODL has qualitatively changed. I suggest that those of us who began our careers more than a decade ago are like those survivors in a landscape painting of a battle, peering about the field while some wisps of smoke still hang in the air from earlier cannon barrage. But the battle that the picture represents is over. There are new authorities in place, and of course there are losers: those who have lost power if not their lives. We look to see who has died, which amongst the wounded can be given help, while those who walk away wonder if the world has really changed.

    Since 2006 the scientific community in California, in cooperation with resource managers, has been conducting periodic statewide studies about the potential impacts of climate change on natural and managed systems. This Special Issue is a compilation of revised papers that originate from the most recent assessment that concluded in 2009. As with the 2006 studies that influenced the passage of California's landmark Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32), these papers have informed policy formulation at the state level, helping bring climate adaptation as a complementary measure to mitigation. We provide here a brief introduction to the papers included in this Special Issue focusing on how they are coordinated and support each other. We describe the common set of downscaled climate and sea-level rise scenarios used in this assessment that came from six different global climate models (GCMs) run under two greenhouse gas emissions scenarios: B1 (low emissions) and A2 (a medium-high emissions). Recommendations for future state assessments, some of which are being implemented in an on-going new assessment that will be completed in 2012, are offered. ?? 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

    As we wrote in our previous editorial, the Staff Association gives direct support to sports events, such as the Atomiades, a section of the Association of Sports Communities of European Research Institutes, which brings together sportsmen and women from 38 European research centres in 13 countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Russia, and Switzerland). The summer Atomiades take place between the months of June and September every three years. Thirteen such events have taken place since 1973, the last one in June 2009 in Berlin. As far as the winter Atomiades are concerned, also organized every three years, and alternating with the summer Atomiades, there have been eleven since 1981, the last one at the end of January this year in neighbouring France.

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

    Full Text Available In the field of research in general, and scientific communication in particular, working in networks is essential in order to improve joint projects and increase the chances of expanding results. For several years now, the editor of this journal, Victoria Tur Vi√Īes, PhD, has given me the chance to collaborate, first as a member of the Scientific Committee, next as Editorial Secretary in charge of coordinating several monographs, and now as co-editor. To paraphrase the writer Gonz√°lez Moore, ‚Äúgenerosity is always the best path‚ÄĚ. Undoubtedly, the act of sharing time and locations means that new synergies come together, moving towards one single objective: for the Mediterranean Journal of Communication to continue gaining in prestige as a wide-ranging source of knowledge that continues to reap success. Talking of success, in May we received the great news that RMC is now indexed in EMERGING SOURCE CITATION INDEX (ESCI - Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters. Scientific publications that are being evaluated to be included in the Web of Science Core Collections Web of Science (SCI, SSCI & A&HCI appear in this database.

    Evidence Summaries are based on research in the medical information field. Our 52 Editorial Advisors and 21 Evidence Summaries writers come from many different areas including school libraries, law libraries, library schools, public libraries,a cademic libraries, research institutions, etc. Admittedly, there is some bias here since we make every attempt to ensure that we have a balanced team of Editorial Advisors and Evidence Summary writers. That aside, the evidence based movement, I‚Äôm pleased to say, appears to be reaching far beyond medical librarianship. The proverbial saying that ‚Äúit‚Äôs all in the word‚ÄĚ doesn‚Äôt hold here. You may be practicing in an evidence based manner without even realizing it. Do you make evidence informed decisions? Do you perform action based research? Have you provided a solid literature review to support a proposal?Have you presented a thorough evaluationon an implemented service? Answering yes to any of these questions does not increase the likelihood that you are a librarian in the health sciences. Rather, it demonstrates the far‚Äźreaching evidence based activities of people in this most impressive cadre of professionals in the library and information field. This issue of Evidence Based Library andInformation Practice, like the past 3 issues, is robust with excellence. The quality of the research articles and the Evidence Summaries is extraordinary and once again, surpasses my already high expectations. We have reached a milestone: this issue marks the end of our first year as a new journal. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Editorial Team for their remarkable contributions to the success of this journal. Working with this team during the past year has been challenging, exciting, rewarding and humbling. ToD enise Koufogiannakis and Alison Brettle, I thank you for your tireless work, endless patience and devotion to excellence.

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

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available Editorial Notes provide a view "behind the scenes" of FQS Reviews, reporting and describing the editorial process. The first topic in this Editorial Note focuses on changes in the way reviewers are found. As FQS Reviews began we preferred finding reviewers by posting on different listservs to inform others about review copies of books and other media. In the next phase of FQS Reviews‚ÄĒaside from postings‚ÄĒwe 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‚ÄĒa 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

    , September 2007. Interestingly, x-ray technologies, one of the first imaging modalities available, keep on moving the limits on both spatial and temporal measurement resolution; experimental results of less than 100 nm and several thousand frames/s are reported, respectively. Important progress is demonstrated in research and development on sensor technologies and algorithms for data processing and image reconstruction, including unconventional sensor design and adaptation of the sensors to the application in question. The number of applications to which tomographic methods are applied is steadily increasing, and results obtained in a representative selection of applications are included. As guest editors we would like express our appreciation and thanks to all authors who have contributed and to IOP staff for excellent collaboration in the process of finalizing this special feature.

  3. EDITORIAL: Process Tomography

    Science.gov (United States)

    2006-08-01

    Process tomography (PT) refers to a methodology by which the internal characteristics of process vessel reaction or pipeline flows are acquired from measurements on or outside the domain of interest in a non-invasive fashion. As a generic 'tool' PT is extremely useful in improving, for example, the modelling and design of many complex processes, in understanding the dynamic mechanisms of flowing and mixing of colloidal dispersions, and in multiphase flow phenomena, hydraulic transport and process control. Over two decades of research worldwide, PT has become a routine research tool in many research laboratories and is being accepted for process measurement and control in some industrial applications. This is the fourth special feature on process tomography after previous publications in this journal in 1996, 2001 and 2002. In this issue, recent developments in sensors, measurements and algorithms with new features for specific distinctive applications are addressed, such as the high temporal resolutions of 1000 frames/s and beyond obtained by both x-ray and impedance tomography for flow measurement and fast process reaction; interferometric tomography combining the Mach Zehnder interferometer and tomography to utilize the phase difference in propagation for visualization of particular features in a process and new three-dimensional image reconstruction algorithms in process applications. The important aspect of this issue is that it demonstrates current developments focusing on the improvement of performance at the temporal resolution, phase information and 3D algorithms for specific application. Looking back over two decades of research, we can see that the process tomography technique is maturing and its applications in industrial manufacture are being deployed as a result of the determined efforts of researchers worldwide. As Guest Editor of this special feature, I would like to thank my colleagues at the Virtual Centre for Industrial Process Tomography (VCIPT

  13. Editorial: Sales Strategy (2010

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chris McPhee

    2010-09-01

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

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‚Äźmail 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.

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

    Full Text Available 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‚Ķlet‚Äôs 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‚Äźto‚Äźbe 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 ‚Äútalking the talk‚ÄĚ: 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

  19. The guest-worker in Western Europe--an obituary.

    1986-01-01

    The significance of guest workers is examined for six Western European countries. It is found that "the dynamics of the migratory process led to family reunification and settlement, against the original intentions of the workers, employers and states concerned. The recruitment of guest-workers stopped after 1974, but many migrants stayed on, becoming permanent ethnic minorities, in a situation of economic and social crisis. It is argued that guest-worker systems inevitably lead to permanent migration in the long run, and that it is better to plan for orderly settlement through appropriate policies." excerpt

    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‚ÄĒunabridged). 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

    A bio-inspired design of using metal-organic framework (MOF) microcrystals with well-defined multi-shelled hollow structures was used as a matrix to host multiple guests including molecules and nanoparticles at separated locations to form a hierarchical material, mimicking biological structures. The interactions such as energy transfer (ET) between different guests are regulated by precisely fixing them in the MOF shells or encapsulating them in the cavities between the MOF shells. The proof-of-concept design is demonstrated by hosting chromophore molecules including rhodamine 6G (R6G) and 7-amino-4-(trifluoromethyl)coumarin (C-151), as well as metal nanoparticles (Pd NPs) into the multi-shelled hollow zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8). We could selectively establish or diminish the guest-to-framework and guest-to-guest ET. This work provides a platform to construct complex multifunctional materials, especially those need precise separation control of multi-components. © 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

  7. Gated molecular recognition and dynamic discrimination of guests.

    Some highly efficient enzymes, e.g., acetylcholinesterase, use gating as a tool for controlling the rate by which substrates access their active site to direct product formation. Mastering gated molecular encapsulation could therefore be important for manipulating reactivity in artificial environments, albeit quantitative relationships that describe these processes are unknown. In this work, we examined the interdependence between the thermodynamics (DeltaG(o)) and the kinetics (DeltaG(in)(double dagger) and DeltaG(out)(double dagger)) of encapsulation as mediated by gated molecular basket 1. For a series of isosteric guests (2-6, 106-107 A(3)) entering/exiting 1, we found a linear correlation between the host-guest affinities (DeltaG(o)) and the free energies of the activation (DeltaG(in)(double dagger) and DeltaG(out)(double dagger)), which was fit to the following equation: DeltaG(double dagger) = rhoDeltaG(o) + delta. Markedly, the kinetics for the entrapment of smaller guest 7 (93 A(3)) and bigger guest 8 (121 A(3)) did not follow the free energy trends observed for 2-6. Thus, it appears that the kinetics of the gated encapsulation mediated by 1 is a function of the encapsulation's favorability (DeltaG(o)) and the guest's profile. When the size/shape of guests is kept constant, a linear dependence between the encapsulation potential (DeltaG(o)) and the rate of guests' entering/departing basket (DeltaG(in/out)(double dagger)) holds. However, when the potential (DeltaG(o)) is fixed, the basket discriminates guests on the basis of their size/shape via dynamic modulation of the binding site's access.

    Editors and journalists at some news websites label their articles with structure and content-related editorial tags. 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...

    Clathrate hydrates are characterized by their water cages encapsulating various guest atoms or molecules. The polarization effect of these guest-cage complexes was studied with combined density functional theory and finite-field calculations. An addition rule was noted for these systems whose total polarizability is approximately equal to the polarizability sum of the guest and the cage. However, their distributional polarizability computed with Hirshfeld partitioning scheme indicates that the guest‚Äďcage interaction has considerable influence on their polarization response. The polarization of encapsulated guest is reduced while the polarization of water cage is enhanced. The counteraction of these two opposite effects leads to the almost unchanged total polarizability. Further analysis reveals that the reduced polarizability of encapsulated guest results from the shielding effect of water cage against the external field and the enhanced polarizability of water cage from the enhanced bonding of hydrogen bonds among water molecules. Although the charge transfer through the hydrogen bonds is rather small in the water cage, the polarization response of clathrate hydrates is sensitive to the changes of hydrogen bonding strength. The guest encapsulation strengthens the hydrogen bonding network and leads to enhanced polarizability.

    In this chapter we discuss the benefits, peculiarities and main challenges related to nanoparticle templating in lyotropic liquid crystals. We first give a brief bird's-eye view of the field, discussing different nanoparticles as well as different lyotropic hosts that have been explored, but then quickly focus on the dispersion of carbon nanotubes in surfactant-based lyotropic nematic phases. We discuss in some detail how the transfer of orientational order from liquid crystal host to nanoparticle guest can be verified and which degree of ordering can be expected, as well as the importance of choosing the right surfactant and its concentration for the stability of the nanoparticle suspension. We introduce a method for dispersing nanoparticles with an absolute minimum of stabilizing surfactant, based on dispersion below the Krafft temperature, and we discuss the peculiar phenomenon of filament formation in lyotropic nematic phases with a sufficient concentration of well-dispersed carbon nanotubes. Finally, we describe how the total surfactant concentration in micellar nematics can be greatly reduced by combining cat- and anionic surfactants, and we discuss how nanotubes can help in inducing the liquid crystal phase close to the isotropic-nematic boundary.

    growth of p-type layers, ferromagnetic behaviour in transition-metal doped oxide is also fuelling renewed interest from the spintronic point of view. Since some of the related reports remain controversial, a critical discussion of the magnetic properties of these doped oxides is made by Fukumura et al. Before the observation of electro-luminescence from the ZnO p-n homojunction reported by Tsukazaki et al (2005 Nature Mater. 4 42), the afore-mentioned advantages have been explored and exploited by alternative methods, such as heteroepitaxy in which p-n heterostructures can be obtained by depositing n-type ZnO films on other p-type oxides while still utilizing ZnO as their active layer. Researchers in Hosono's group observed the high-intensity band-edge emission from such heterostructures for the first time (Ohta H et al 2000 Appl. Phys. Lett. 77 475). They have also successfully extended their research fields to the development of a transparent oxide transistor based on homologous compounds, which is reviewed by Kamiya and Hosono in this special issue. As can be seen from these demonstrations, the advantage of oxides is, of course, based on the fact that many elements in the periodic table can form compounds with oxygen. Since the discovery of high-temperature superconductors, these multi-component oxides have exploited the new field known as the science of strongly correlated-electron materials, whose recent progress is reviewed by Inoue. Although the collection of papers included in this special issue covers a good cross-section of the development of oxide semiconductors and correlated-electron oxides to date, this is not meant to be exhaustive. There are a number of unavoidable omissions, such as theoretical studies except for some theoretical predictions on the room-temperature Bose-Einstein condensation of exciton-polaritons found in the article by Chichibu et al. We hope this issue promotes further development of this exciting field. The guest editors would like to

    Noncovalent interactions play a pivotal role in a variety of biological and chemical processes. The experimental determination and quantum chemical calculations of the forces driving these interactions are of utmost importance. Of special interest are interactions of molecules in small spaces which show phenomena different from conventional behavior in solution. An extension is the encapsulation of guests in smallest spaces: The guests are too large to be included under standard conditions and hence must be forced to intrude into the cavity. Here, we show the design of such a host-guest system which allows to directly compare the measured thermodynamic values to gas-phase quantum chemical calculations. Structural investigation of the complexes reveals that the encapsulation process causes not only an extension of the hollow space of the host but also a shrinking of the included guest by compression.

    Although most biomedical journals have adopted the authorship criteria established by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) in 1985, little is known about the extent Iranian researchers are familiar with these criteria. The study seeks to evaluate the number of authors fulfilling ICMJE authorship criteria (considering the names mentioned in the byline of 12 issues of the Archives of Iranian Medicine (AIM) journal), and to determine the type of contribution made by each author. The fulfilment of authorship criteria and contribution percentage of each researcher were evaluated according to their position in the bylines of 12 issues of the Archives of Iranian Medicine (AIM) journal published from January 2005 to October 2007. We asked corresponding authors to answer our questionnaire which was designed to assess authorship criteria and contribution. A total of 576 researchers' names were in the studied article bylines. The ratio of authors to articles was 3.48 in 2005, 4.06 in 2006, and 5.59 in 2007. Sixty three out of 128 corresponding authors (49.21%) responded to our questionnaire, so we evaluated 296 researchers' names, from which 186 authors (62.83%) met the authorship criteria; 110 authors (37.17%) were identified as guest authors, 97 of which deserved to be mentioned in the acknowledgement section. The major criteria used for authors order was their participation in research projects in addition to article writing, mostly determined by the corresponding author. Two authors (0.67%) whose names were not mentioned in the articles were considered to be ghost writers as the articles were based on the results of their thesis. It is essential to make Iranian researchers familiar with ICMJE authorship criteria and to encourage applying the criteria in scientific writing. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    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 ‚Äď beyond the realm of academic discussions only, but nevertheless with substantial academic input.

    Full Text Available Total quality management (TQM has become a modern system of constant improvement of the quality of all company activities. The purpose of this study is to measure the expectations and satisfaction of the guests concerning the attribute quality of the hotel product. Furthermore obtained results were compared in such a way as to analyse particularly the reviews of hotels which have implemented TQM and have the ISO 9001 certificates with reviews from hotels which have not implemented TQM and do not have the ISO 9001 certificates. The conducted analysis included 55 hotels in Serbia belonging to the 4- and 5-star categories, i.e. 1308 guests who have stayed in them. The results show that between the observed groups of guests there are fewer differences in expectations than in perception, and that generally speaking guests who have stayed in the hotels that have implemented TQM are more satisfied. The biggest difference concerning the guest satisfaction with the quality of service in the observed hotels is noticeable in relation to the employees and the value-for-money.

    Full Text Available Hotel companies which operate in today's competitive environment must constantly work on improving their products and services, at the request of their guests. Customer satisfaction is the key to retaining existing and attracting new guests. To achieve this goal, managers in the hotel organizations have become aware of the fact that the quality of staying in hotel represent unique experience for tourists. Lot of papers are dealing with the exploration of this topic, it only proves its importance nowadays. However, insufficient attention is paid to the simultaneous study of experience of guests and their satisfaction through the offered models (indexes that are created for this purpose.

    While it has long been known that some highly adsorbing microporous materials suddenly become inaccessible to guest molecules below certain temperatures, previous attempts to explain this phenomenon have failed. Here we show that this anomalous sorption behaviour is a temperature-regulated guest admission process, where the pore-keeping group's thermal fluctuations are influenced by interactions with guest molecules. A physical model is presented to explain the atomic-level chemistry and structure of these thermally regulated micropores, which is crucial to systematic engineering of new functional materials such as tunable molecular sieves, gated membranes and controlled-release nanocontainers. The model was validated experimentally with H2, N2, Ar and CH4 on three classes of microporous materials: trapdoor zeolites, supramolecular host calixarenes and metal-organic frameworks. We demonstrate how temperature can be exploited to achieve appreciable hydrogen and methane storage in such materials without sustained pressure. These findings also open new avenues for gas sensing and isotope separation.

  13. Effects of guest feeding programs on captive giraffe behavior.

    2016-01-01

    Zoological institutions develop human-animal interaction opportunities for visitors to advance missions of conservation, education, and recreation; however, the animal welfare implications largely have yet to be evaluated. This behavioral study was the first to quantify impacts of guest feeding programs on captive giraffe behavior and welfare, by documenting giraffe time budgets that included both normal and stereotypic behaviors. Thirty giraffes from nine zoos (six zoos with varying guest feeding programs and three without) were observed using both instantaneous scan sampling and continuous behavioral sampling techniques. All data were collected during summer 2012 and analyzed using linear mixed models. The degree of individual giraffe participation in guest feeding programs was positively associated with increased time spent idle and marginally associated with reduced time spent ruminating. Time spent participating in guest feeding programs had no effect on performance of stereotypic behaviors. When time spent eating routine diets was combined with time spent participating in guest feeding programs, individuals that spent more time engaged in total feeding behaviors tended to perform less oral stereotypic behavior such as object-licking and tongue-rolling. By extending foraging time and complexity, guest feeding programs have the potential to act as environmental enrichment and alleviate unfulfilled foraging motivations that may underlie oral stereotypic behaviors observed in many captive giraffes. However, management strategies may need to be adjusted to mitigate idleness and other program consequences. Further studies, especially pre-and-post-program implementation comparisons, are needed to better understand the influence of human-animal interactions on zoo animal behavior and welfare. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    2017-11-30

    Octa-acid (OA) and tetra-endo-methyl octa-acid (TEMOA) are water-soluble, deep-cavity cavitands with nanometer-sized nonpolar pockets that readily bind complementary guests, such as n-alkanes. Experimentally, OA exhibits a progression of 1:1 to 2:2 to 2:1 host/guest complexes (X:Y where X is the number of hosts and Y is the number of guests) with increasing alkane chain length from methane to tetradecane. Differing from OA only by the addition of four methyl groups ringing the portal of the pocket, TEMOA exhibits a nonmonotonic progression of assembly states from 1:1 to 2:2 to 1:1 to 2:1 with increasing guest length. Here we present a systematic molecular simulation study to parse the molecular and thermodynamic determinants that distinguish the succession of assembly stoichiometries observed for these similar hosts. Potentials of mean force between hosts and guests, determined via umbrella sampling, are used to characterize association free energies. These free energies are subsequently used in a reaction network model to predict the equilibrium distributions of assemblies. Our models accurately reproduce the experimentally observed trends, showing that TEMOA's endo-methyl units constrict the opening of the binding pocket, limiting the conformations available to bound guests and disrupting the balance between monomeric complexes and dimeric capsules. The success of our simulations demonstrate their utility at interpreting the impact of even simple chemical modifications on supramolecular assembly and highlight their potential to aid bottom-up design.

    2015-10-01

    Mesoporous solids, which were prepared from inorganic-surfactant mesostructured materials, have been investigated due to their very large surface area and high porosity, pore size uniformity and variation, periodic pore arrangement and possible pore surface modification. Morphosyntheses from macroscopic morphologies such as bulk monolith and films, to nanoscopic ones, nanoparticles and their stable suspension, make mesoporous materials more attractive for applications and detailed characterization. This class of materials has been studied for such applications as adsorbents and catalysts, and later on, for optical, electronic, environmental and bio-related ones. This review summarizes the studies on the chemistry of mesoporous silica and functional guest species (host-guest chemistry) to highlight the present status and future applications of the host-guest hybrids.

  17. Effect of small cage guests on hydrogen bonding of tetrahydrofuran in binary structure II clathrate hydrates.

    Alavi, Saman; Ripmeester, John A

    2012-08-07

    Molecular dynamics simulations of the pure structure II tetrahydrofuran clathrate hydrate and binary structure II tetrahydrofuran clathrate hydrate with CO(2), CH(4), H(2)S, and Xe small cage guests are performed to study the effect of the shape, size, and intermolecular forces of the small cages guests on the structure and dynamics of the hydrate. The simulations show that the number and nature of the guest in the small cage affects the probability of hydrogen bonding of the tetrahydrofuran guest with the large cage water molecules. The effect on hydrogen bonding of tetrahydrofuran occurs despite the fact that the guests in the small cage do not themselves form hydrogen bonds with water. These results indicate that nearest neighbour guest-guest interactions (mediated through the water lattice framework) can affect the clathrate structure and stability. The implications of these subtle small guest effects on clathrate hydrate stability are discussed.

  20. Rotaxane and catenane host structures for sensing charged guest species.

    Langton, Matthew J; Beer, Paul D

    2014-07-15

    CONSPECTUS: The promise of mechanically interlocked architectures, such as rotaxanes and catenanes, as prototypical molecular switches and shuttles for nanotechnological applications, has stimulated an ever increasing interest in their synthesis and function. The elaborate host cavities of interlocked structures, however, can also offer a novel approach toward molecular recognition: this Account describes the use of rotaxane and catenane host systems for binding charged guest species, and for providing sensing capability through an integrated optical or electrochemical reporter group. Particular attention is drawn to the exploitation of the unusual dynamic properties of interlocked molecules, such as guest-induced shuttling or conformational switching, as a sophisticated means of achieving a selective and functional sensor response. We initially survey interlocked host systems capable of sensing cationic guests, before focusing on our accomplishments in synthesizing rotaxanes and catenanes designed for the more challenging task of selective anion sensing. In our group, we have developed the use of discrete anionic templation to prepare mechanically interlocked structures for anion recognition applications. Removal of the anion template reveals an interlocked host system, possessing a unique three-dimensional geometrically restrained binding cavity formed between the interlocked components, which exhibits impressive selectivity toward complementary anionic guest species. By incorporating reporter groups within such systems, we have developed both electrochemical and optical anion sensors which can achieve highly selective sensing of anionic guests. Transition metals, lanthanides, and organic fluorophores integrated within the mechanically bonded structural framework of the receptor are perturbed by the binding of the guest, with a concomitant change in the emission profile. We have also exploited the unique dynamics of interlocked hosts by demonstrating that an

  4. Distribution of metal and adsorbed guest species in zeolites

    Chmelka, B.F.

    1989-12-01

    Because of their high internal surface areas and molecular-size cavity dimensions, zeolites are used widely as catalysts, shape- selective supports, or adsorbents in a variety of important chemical processes. For metal-catalyzed reactions, active metal species must be dispersed to sites within the zeolite pores that are accessible to diffusing reactant molecules. The distribution of the metal, together with transport and adsorption of reactant molecules in zeolite powders, are crucial to ultimate catalyst performance. The nature of the metal or adsorbed guest distribution is known, however, to be dramatically dependent upon preparatory conditions. Our objective is to understand, at the molecular level, how preparatory treatments influence the distribution of guest species in zeolites, in order that macroscopic adsorption and reaction properties of these materials may be better understood. The sensitivity of xenon to its adsorption environment makes {sup 129}Xe NMR spectroscopy an important diagnostic probe of metal clustering and adsorbate distribution processes in zeolites. The utility of {sup 129}Xe NMR depends on the mobility of the xenon atoms within the zeolite-guest system, together with the length scale of the sample heterogeneity being studied. In large pore zeolites containing dispersed guest species, such as Pt--NaY, {sup 129}Xe NMR is insensitive to fine structural details at room temperature.

The Thanksgiving break came and went quickly for the two of us, and before we knew it, December was here. In a moment of retrospective thinking, we stopped and thought about how this Journal has grown from a simple idea into something that is helping shape the emerging field of financial therapy in just a matter of one or two years. How grateful we are to be able to help guide this important outreach function of the Financial Therapy Association. Even though we get caught up in the day-to-day routines of teaching, conducting research, providing service to the profession, and working diligently to produce a world-class journal, we want every reader to know that we are honored to serve as editors and to be, in a minor sense, ambassadors for the financial therapy field.

It also breaks down by country and by government level whether the policy on the use of open source is considered to be advisory, preferential, or mandatory. The editorial theme for the May issue of the OSBR is "open source in government" and we are pleased that the authors have drawn upon their experiences to provide insight into public policy regarding open source for many parts of the world.

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

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

    Full Text Available En los estudios de la poblaci√≥n resaltan aquellos ligados a ciertos grupos prioritarios de atenci√≥n, entre ellos el de la poblaci√≥n menor de edad, en este n√ļmero de la revista se tienen dos art√≠culos ligados a los ni√Īos y ni√Īas de diferentes pa√≠ses del continente. Posteriormente se tiene otro art√≠culo ligado al desarrollo de servicios necesarios para contar con una vida saludable y finalmente, se tiene un art√≠culo sobre el cambio en el desarrollo econ√≥mico de una zona de Costa Rica.Una de las formas m√°s crueles de limitar el potencial del ser humano es priv√°ndole del disfrute de su ni√Īez, de su formaci√≥n y preparaci√≥n para tener una vida plena. A pesar de los acuerdos y convenios a nivel internacional, hay muchos menores de edad que no asisten a la escuela o colegio por salir a trabajar. As√≠, el primer art√≠culo permite una estimaci√≥n de la poblaci√≥n menor que podr√≠a estar desarrollando ‚Äútrabajo infantil‚ÄĚ; esto mediante la combinaci√≥n de los aspectos metodol√≥gicos de la tabla de mortalidad tradicional con los de la tabla de m√ļltiples decrementos y las estad√≠sticas de la poblaci√≥n escolar. El art√≠culo muestra que a pesar de no contarse con toda la informaci√≥n necesaria, es posible obtener una estimaci√≥n consistente con otras fuentes de informaci√≥n.Cuando la mortalidad infantil desciende se vuelve m√°s dif√≠cil lograr reducciones importantes. Sin embargo, los pa√≠ses deben buscar las mejoras necesarias para lograr salvar esas vidas. El segundo art√≠culo muestra los avances que se han logrado en Argentina, Brasil y Uruguay pero, al compararlo con las metas para el 2010 y el 2015 pareciera que no se van a alcanzar, de mantenerse la situaci√≥n como est√°. Un aspecto importante de resaltar son las reducciones que se requieren a lo interno de los pa√≠ses donde a√ļn se mantiene una desigualdad importante entre diferentes sectores poblacionales.El desarrollo de una vida plena y saludable est√° ligado a que se cuente con un ambiente acorde a las necesidades de la poblaci√≥n. En nuestras sociedades surgen primero las necesidades y luego viene la reglamentaci√≥n para solucionar los problemas que se crean del crecimiento no planificado y previsto de nuestras ciudades. En el tercer art√≠culo Chamizo hace una revisi√≥n de las leyes y reglamentos que han surgido, de una manera desarticulada, en torno a dos elementos fundamentales de la vida del ser humano moderno: el agua y los residuos s√≥lidos. En el √ļltimo art√≠culo de Luis Carlos Morales, se presenta el cambio que ha sufrido uno de los cantones m√°s importantes de la provincia de Guanacaste al cambiar su estructura productiva. Guanacaste ha sido desde hace muchas d√©cadas, una zona de expulsi√≥n de poblaci√≥n. Esto ha llevado a plantear diferentes alternativas productivas, en busca de actividades que le permitan a la poblaci√≥n mantenerse en su zona. El turismo ha sido la √ļltima actividad apoyada para permitir a la poblaci√≥n del lugar, encontrar una fuente de empleo digna. Esto lleva a un cambio importante en la estructura econ√≥mica al pasar sus ocupaciones principalmente del sector primario al terciario. Sin embargo, esto plantea la interrogante de si el crecimiento econ√≥mico de la zona llevar√° a un mayor desarrollo social de sus habitantes, esto es lo que se analiza en este interesante art√≠culo.Finalmente en documentos hist√≥ricos se presentan las impresiones y recuerdos de Jos√© Silverio G√≥mez, art√≠culo muy interesante de Henri Pittier sobre los recuerdos de un longevo nicoyano.

Starting about 35 years back in 1973 in the USA, this biennial international series has been held in various countries all over the world. However, this was the first time that an Asian country hosted it since its inception. Recent meetings in this series were held in Albuquerque USA (2003) and Seville, Spain (2005). The next one is scheduled for Cambridge, UK in 2009. All the three Indian institutions co-organizing IBA 2007 are considered premier institutions and have national and international recognition for excelling in research effort. While the UH in general and School of Physics in particular has received nearly all the recognitions in the Indian university system including Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) in Physics, IUAC and IOP are equipped with most of the state-of-the-art ion beam facilities.

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

    Full Text Available A Revista Ci√™ncias e Sa√ļde, com muita satisfa√ß√£o, objetiva nesta edi√ß√£o al√©m da veicula√ß√£o de excelentes produ√ß√Ķes cient√≠ficas, compartilhar com nossos leitores, os avan√ßos tecnol√≥gicos e cient√≠ficos desta Institui√ß√£o de Sa√ļde, no sentido de dar a conhecer os caminhos trilhados a partir de uma concep√ß√£o sist√™mica de sa√ļde que percebe a integralidade humana do paciente, n√£o somente como um portador da doen√ßa, mas como um representante da vida, que merece a tradu√ß√£o de todas as inst√Ęncias de sua exist√™ncia. Nessa perspectiva, vale ressaltar, que os referidos avan√ßos surgiram a partir do ideal (sonho de um sistema de sa√ļde mais humanit√°rio e eficiente, assim como o grande poeta Fernando Pessoa versa: Deus quer, o homem sonha e a obra nasce. O Hospital Escola da Faculdade de Medicina de Itajub√°, que atende sistematicamente 16 munic√≠pios da regi√£o do Sapuca√≠, aumentou consideravelmente a demanda de atendimentos que extrapolam a referida regi√£o, vindo pacientes at√© de cidades pr√≥ximas de grandes centros urbanos de Minas Gerais. Esta concreta verticaliza√ß√£o da fun√ß√£o social na √°rea da sa√ļde, retrata as diversas conquistas referentes √† expans√£o do Hospital Escola, que ocorreram n√£o somente na contrata√ß√£o de profissionais de destaque nacional em diversas √°reas, como tamb√©m numa reestrutura√ß√£o radical e conceitual de uma infraestrutura voltada √† ampliar e melhorar os setores existentes, bem como, implantar e viabilizar novos servi√ßos, com excel√™ncia cient√≠fica e tecnol√≥gica. Nesse contexto, pode-se destacar: Centro de Medicina Diagn√≥stica (Radiologia Digital, Tom√≥grafo Multi-slice 128 canais, mamografia, ultrassonografia, ecocardiograma, ecotransesof√°gico , exames laboratoriais; Unidade de Terapia Intensiva (2 UTIs para Adultos; UTI Neonatal; Centro de Hemodi√°lise; Laborat√≥rios; Novas instala√ß√Ķes administrativas e reformas de amplia√ß√£o e moderniza√ß√£o nos departamentos de Cl√≠nica M√©dica e Clinica Cir√ļrgica. Foram implantados Servi√ßos de Alta Complexidade que est√£o atuando com plena capacidade, s√£o eles: Cardiovascular; transplantes de rim, transplante de c√≥rnea, tutoria para transplante de f√≠gado e; Neurologia e Neurocirurgia; Oncologia; videocirurgia; Cirurgia Bari√°trica e Terapia Renal Substitutiva.

    Full Text Available La cultura organizacional, hoy en día, constituye un factor clave en la gestión de organizaciones. La cultura se refiere a un sistema de significados compartidos por los miembros de una organización, que la hace diferente de las demás. La esencia de la cultura está definida por algunas características fundamentales, como la innovación y la toma de riesgos, la atención a los detalles, la orientación a resultados, la orientación a la gente, la orientación a los equipos, el dinamismo y la estabilidad. Una cultura fuerte en una organización, logra reglas y directrices implícitas, no escritas, que guían la conducta de los colaboradores y crean el ambiente de trabajo (Robbins, S. P., & Judge, T. A. (2013. Comportamiento organizacional (Decimoquinta ed.. México D.F.: PEARSON, pp. 512-516. Un aspecto íntimamente vinculado a la cultura, es la adquisición, desarrollo y retención del personal, ya que los colaboradores forman la identidad de la organización, su cultura.

    La comunicaci√≥ -i, m√©s concretament, la informaci√≥ que transporta- √©s a la base de tot ordre social. Quan els especialistes analitzen els mecanismes de suport que han articulat aquesta comunicaci√≥ al llarg de la hist√≤ria de la humanitat distingeixen quatre grans etapes, edats o "eres": l'era de l'oralitat, l'era de l'escriptura, l'era de la impremta i, avui, l'era de les tecnologies de la comunicaci√≥. Cada nova era no substitueix l'anterior, sin√≥ que s'hi sobreposa i, en fer-ho, augmenta el gruix de l'aparell comunicatiu -el grau d'informaci√≥ disponible, el nombre de beneficiaris d'aquesta informaci√≥- i, en conseq√ľ√®ncia, la complexitat i la densitat de les relacions socials que aquest aparell facilita: la xarxa es fa cada cop m√©s espessa, m√©s rica.

    La pol√≠tica i el dret depenen dels fluxos comunicatius. Per aix√≤, la manera de fer pol√≠tica i les mateixes formes jur√≠diques s'han vist modificades al llarg de la hist√≤ria en funci√≥ del diferent tipus d'instrumental comunicatiu del que hom disposava. El salt de l'oralitat a l'escriptura, o de l'escriptura en suports √ļnics a la reproducci√≥ massiva a trav√©s de la impremta, han marcat canvis culturals les plenes conseq√ľ√®ncies dels quals no han estat visibles fins despr√©s de llargs per√≠odes de temps. Avui som conscients que estem vivint, amb l'explosi√≥ de les tecnologies de la informaci√≥ i la comunicaci√≥ que t√© lloc a finals del segle XX, un proc√©s de transformaci√≥ social del qual nom√©s som capa√ßos d'albirar els primers llampecs. Com diu el professor Eben Moglen en la confer√®ncia que va impartir a la UOC el curs passat -i que transcrivim en aquest n√ļmero de la revista- "en molt poc temps han passat algunes coses molt importants [...]; la cultura de finals del segle XX ha estat molt enfeinada anticipant el seu propi futur".

Em rela√ß√£o √† produ√ß√£o intelectual, este n√ļmero conta com dez artigos, um ensaio e uma resenha. Os artigos foram incorporados partindo de aspectos centrais da Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o passando posteriormente para temas mais espec√≠ficos; a edi√ß√£o inicia-se com estudos epistemol√≥gicos: ‚ÄúA evolu√ß√£o da Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o a partir de conceitos-sin√īnimos empregados na obra Ci√™ncia da informa√ß√£o ou inform√°tica‚ÄĚ, no qual s√£o evidenciados os termos considerados relevantes e que d√£o independ√™ncia a esta ci√™ncia frente a Biblioteconomia; e segue com a linguagem document√°ria a partir da vis√£o dos usu√°rios dentro do escopo do processo classificat√≥rio encontrado na Biblioteconomia e na Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o, que trabalha com os conceitos de garantia liter√°ria, a garantia estrutural e a garantia cultural, intitulado ‚ÄúConstru√ß√£o de linguagens document√°rias em sistemas de recupera√ß√£o da informa√ß√£o: a import√Ęncia da garantia do usu√°rio‚ÄĚ. Na sequ√™ncia, s√£o apresentados tr√™s estudos que tratam do tema bibliotecas, o primeiro com quest√Ķes relacionadas √† identifica√ß√£o e constitui√ß√£o da micobiota a√©rea de bibliotecas p√ļblicas no munic√≠pio de Fortaleza, estado do Cear√°, Brasil; o segundo explora as defini√ß√Ķes e as peculiaridades que constituem os documentos eletr√īnicos, suas vantagens e aplica√ß√Ķes, incluindo como as bibliotecas universit√°rias tratam suas pol√≠ticas de desenvolvimento de cole√ß√Ķes para documentos eletr√īnicos; e o terceiro enfoca o tema de forma√ß√£o e desenvolvimento de cole√ß√Ķes em bibliotecas universit√°rias com a an√°lise de artigos da base de dados Wilson Library Literature and Information Science Full Text. Na continua√ß√£o, √© apresentada uma an√°lise e discuss√£o das informa√ß√Ķes arquiv√≠sticas, obtidas a partir do Sistema de Informa√ß√Ķes para o Ensino, da Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, no m√≥dulo de registro e altera√ß√Ķes de projetos, no que se refere √† autenticidade e √† fidedignidade destas informa√ß√Ķes; e; outro trabalho atrelado √† preserva√ß√£o digital, apresentado como um problema real a ser solucionado pelas institui√ß√Ķes, principalmente aquelas que t√™m por obriga√ß√£o legal a manuten√ß√£o de documentos em longo prazo, seja para atendimento a demandas do cidad√£o, seja para preserva√ß√£o da hist√≥ria institucional, relatado no artigo ‚ÄúMetodologia para implanta√ß√£o de programas de preserva√ß√£o de documentos digitais a longo prazo‚ÄĚ. Na mesma linha de informa√ß√£o e preserva√ß√£o digital, temos o livro digital, que nos dias atuais come√ßa a ganhar espa√ßo junto aos leitores; o trabalho ‚ÄúA arquitetura do livro digital na plataforma Google: um estudo explorat√≥rio‚ÄĚ observa que as editoras digitais est√£o pensando em preservar as caracter√≠sticas da obra em sua vers√£o 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 Ci√™ncias Cont√°beis, frisando o imperativo da constru√ß√£o de modelos que transformem o conhecimento em um ativo compartilhado por meio de a√ß√Ķes e atos colaborativos, ilustrado pelo artigo ‚ÄúWikicounting: repensando a contabilidade pela perspectiva No√©tica‚ÄĚ; o segundo estudo trata de uma an√°lise webom√©trica, que enfoca informa√ß√Ķes sobre Educa√ß√£o Ambiental frente ao que √© produzido e difundido pelas p√°ginas web brasileiras; demonstra um amplo envolvimento das esferas institucionais, governo, setor privado, universidade, e terceiro setor, que disponibilizam suas a√ß√Ķes por meio eletr√īnico, conforme vislumbrado no estudo ‚ÄúO produtor e o conte√ļdo da informa√ß√£o na internet: um estudo sobre o tema educa√ß√£o ambiental em p√°ginas e sites brasileiros‚ÄĚ. Para a se√ß√£o de ensaios, contamos com o estudo ‚ÄúLinked Data‚ÄĚ ‚Äď dados interligados - e interoperabilidade entre arquivos, bibliotecas e museus na web‚ÄĚ, que parte da proposta da web sem√Ęntica, que oferece a possibilidade de interligar recursos informacionais web atrav√©s de ‚Äúlinks‚ÄĚ sem√Ęnticos, permitindo aos usu√°rios uma navega√ß√£o natural e intuitiva. E, finalizando este n√ļmero, temos na se√ß√£o de resenha uma vis√£o sobre a obra de Jos√© Ant√īnio Moreiro Gonz√°lez (Linguagens document√°rias e vocabul√°rios sem√Ęnticos para a web: elementos conceituais, na qual o autor reflete sobre a evolu√ß√£o deste tipo de estudo e suas novas representa√ß√Ķes, como as folksonomias, web 2.0, os tesauros, as ontologias e os topic maps.

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

    Esta edi√ß√£o especial da Linguam√°tica cont√©m uma sele√ß√£o dos artigos apresentados no 7¬ļ Simp√≥sio de Tecnologia da Informa√ß√£o e Linguagem Humana (STIL 2009, que ocorreu de 8 a 11 de setembro de 2009 na Universidade de S√£o Paulo (campus S√£o Carlos, Brasil (http://www.nilc.icmc.usp.br/til/stil2009_English. O STIL √© o evento anual de Tecnologia da Linguagem apoiado pela Sociedade Brasileira de Computa√ß√£o (SBC e pela Comiss√£o Especial de Processamento de Linguagem Natural. Este evento tem um car√°ter multidisciplinar, abrangendo um amplo espectro de disciplinas relacionadas √† Tecnologia da Linguagem Humana, tais como Ling√ľ√≠stica, Ci√™ncias da Computa√ß√£o, Psicologia, Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o, entre outros, e tem por objetivo reunir participantes acad√™micos e da ind√ļstria que atuam nessas √°reas.

    Os t√≥picos de interesse anunciados no Call for Papers estiveram centrados em torno dos trabalhos em tecnologia da linguagem humana em geral realizados a partir de perspectivas t√£o diversas como Ci√™ncias da Computa√ß√£o, Ling√ľ√≠stica e Ci√™ncia da Informa√ß√£o, incluindo entre outros a minera√ß√£o de texto, processamento da linguagem escrita e falada, a terminologia, lexicologia e lexicografia, modelagem e gest√£o de conhecimento e gera√ß√£o de linguagem natural. Foram submetidos 60 artigos longos e 26 curtos. Cada proposta foi analisada por tr√™s membros do Comit√™ de Programa, composto por 88 pesquisadores de 13 pa√≠ses e 45 institui√ß√Ķes.

    Ap√≥s um rigoroso processo de revis√£o 18 artigos completos e 12 curtos foram selecionados, com taxas de aceita√ß√£o de 30% e 42%, respectivamente. Os autores dos artigos completos foram convidados a submeter vers√Ķes estendidas e revisadas dos seus trabalhos para esta edi√ß√£o especial, passando por um novo processo de revis√£o, desta vez pelos revisores da Linguam√°tica, que selecionaram 7 dos artigos submetidos.

    Estes artigos representam uma amostra do rico e variado trabalho apresentado no STIL e envolvem pesquisadores de institui√ß√Ķes acad√™micas e industriais no Brasil, Portugal e Fran√ßa. Por exemplo, o primeiro artigo, Identifica√ß√£o de express√Ķes multipalavra em dom√≠nios espec√≠ficos de Aline Villavicencio et al., prop√Ķe uma abordagem para a identifica√ß√£o de Express√Ķes Multipalavra, tais como compostos nominais e verbos frasais, em corpora t√©cnicos. A proposta apresentada combina medidas de associa√ß√£o com informa√ß√Ķes lingu√≠sticas e de alinhamentos lexicais, e o artigo examina a influ√™ncia de diversos fatores sobre o seu desempenho.

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

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

    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 indexa√ß√£o tamb√©m √© importante a quantidade de cita√ß√Ķes de artigos publicados na revista. Outras revistas obrigam a que os artigos submetidos incluam cita√ß√Ķes para artigos da pr√≥pria revista. N√£o nos parece que este tipo de obriga√ß√£o seja decente, mas n√£o podemos de deixar de pedir aos leitores e autores da Linguam√°tica para, sempre que se adeque, fa√ßam cita√ß√Ķes a artigos publicados na revista.

    Mas não será pela falta de indexação que nós, os editores, iremos baixar os braços.

    Full Text Available ¬ŅTiene el arte un nuevo discurso para saberse incorporado a una sociedad que, ella misma, ha cambiado de manera dram√°tica sus formas de saberse, sentirse y o√≠rse? La incorporaci√≥n en los sistemas educativos formales del arte en el √ļltimo siglo y medio, ¬Ņha aportado a las transformaciones, transfiguraciones y transgresiones de las culturas? La pr√°ctica art√≠stica, tan asociada a la genialidad de ciertas figuras o miembros de la especie, en muchos lugares de enunciaci√≥n sigue manteniendo el arquetipo del arte y del artista como sujetos privilegiados o inspirados, una suerte de mes√≠as po√©ticos 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 inmersi√≥n de la formaci√≥n art√≠stica en la academia haya sido justamente su academizaci√≥n. Lo que en su momento, para muchos de quienes hoy profesamos un trabajo art√≠stico, fue un adjetivo √ļtil al momento de desestimar nuestro paso por las aulas, hoy se convierte en regla de profesi√≥n, por algo que parece inestimable: la universalizaci√≥n a la que se expone quien pisa la academia. Como se sabe, la academia no ense√Īa nada, es el sujeto en formaci√≥n quien dispone de sus rutas de aprendizaje, incluso en los m√°s herm√©ticos templos del saber. La configuraci√≥n de un ‚Äúser est√©tico‚ÄĚ resulta de una compleja red de conexiones que van fraguando una manera particular de entender el mundo, y de reaccionar ante √©l a trav√©s de una idea que se forma obra o discurso, para comunicar una po√©tica. Pero quiz√° lo m√°s importante de esta inmersi√≥n del campo del arte en los lugares de la academia, en la sistematizaci√≥n de los saberes, en el reconocimiento del car√°cter t√©cnico y repetible de un enunciado ‚Äúinspirado‚ÄĚ, sea la posibilidad de que por este universo pase la sociedad, la humanidad, la persona. En otras palabras, la p√©rdida de un privilegio de los elegidos. Suena algo demag√≥gico, pero la academia convierte en accesible el arte para la comunidad. Es su democratizaci√≥n. Y es en ese lugar en el que, desde la d√©cada de los a√Īos sesenta y setenta, pretende situarse el arte en la escuela, a partir de una negaci√≥n rotunda: Se educa en el arte no para la producci√≥n o el consumo (aquel que no sea un buen artista en su formaci√≥n, ser√° un privilegiado consumidor, sino para el conocimiento. M√°s all√° de los escenarios en los que el arte sirve como recurso l√ļdico o recreativo, emerge con fuerza la idea de una pr√°ctica educativa √ļtil para la formaci√≥n compleja y cr√≠tica de la persona, desde la formaci√≥n b√°sica, y no necesariamente en el foco del arte centrado sobre s√≠. En otras palabras, la educaci√≥n art√≠stica en la escuela no deber√≠a centrarse en la formaci√≥n sobre el teatro, o sobre la m√ļsica, o la pintura y la expresi√≥n pl√°stica, o sobre cualquier √°rea can√≥nica del campo art√≠stico, sino sobre las implicaciones cognitivas, impl√≠citas en el momento did√°ctico de encarar y resolver un problema, un enunciado. Seguramente una obra de G√≥gol, o de Stravinsky, o del pintor Francis Bacon contiene una trama, un saber que implica un orden y una estructura que pone al l√≠mite la experiencia de conocer, de enunciar, de saber. El saber como justificaci√≥n de la existencia humana. En otras palabras, su valoraci√≥n no es impl√≠cita a la obra, sino a lo que contiene de conocimiento tal obra As√≠, la academia que antes en el √°mbito art√≠stico se miraba con recelo, da con determinaci√≥n el siguiente paso: preparar los dispositivos de enunciaci√≥n que permitan encarar los problemas del arte en la educaci√≥n, distintos a la manera de comprender un arte o una pr√°ctica art√≠stica. Y para ello urgimos la configuraci√≥n de los ciclos posgraduales que se ocupen de problematizar este √°mbito de la experiencia social.

    Full Text Available Los procesos de globalizaci√≥n de la econom√≠a y el establecimiento de nuevas relaciones en la producci√≥n, circulaci√≥n y distribuci√≥n de los recursos, son realidades innegables que propician la din√°mica a nivel cient√≠fico, tecnol√≥gico y organizacional en que se desarrolla la sociedad actual. Sin embargo, los cambios suscitados en torno a las tecnolog√≠as de la informaci√≥n y comunicaci√≥n TIC, han permitido dentro de cada contexto, cambios en ocasiones exagerados, si se tienen en cuenta aspectos procedimentales antes de su incorporaci√≥n a los procesos existentes.¬† Entre tanto, quienes hacen parte de esa nueva tendencia, tienen en su ejercicio un reorganizar natural para adaptarse los nuevos retos que la misma sociedad impone, es decir, las nuevas generaciones est√°n desde ya en capacidad de asumir de forma pr√°ctica y eficiente la transici√≥n obligatoria hacia el aprender con ayuda de las nuevas herramientas tecnol√≥gicas. Durante los √ļltimos a√Īos, mucho se ha dicho y escrito al respecto de la incorporaci√≥n de las tecnolog√≠as de la informaci√≥n y comunicaci√≥n en la educaci√≥n y de su impacto en los procesos de formaci√≥n profesional, sin embargo, la din√°mica de apropiaci√≥n y generaci√≥n de nuevo conocimiento producto de la facilidad de obtenci√≥n de informaci√≥n, permite que tanto quienes acceden a la educaci√≥n superior como al sistema mismo, adopten y adapten sus esquemas para permitir en su entorno, su aplicaci√≥n de manera acertada y contextualizada. As√≠ las cosas, las nuevas formas de organizaci√≥n del trabajo, las exigencias profesionales al respecto, generan un entorno cada vez m√°s exigente que obliga a quienes tienen la responsabilidad constitucional de brindar educaci√≥n, en el caso colombiano las Instituciones de Educaci√≥n Superior IES, a propender por establecer modelos educativos que desde lo did√°ctico favorezcan el desarrollo de habilidades de pensamiento de orden superior que le permitan comprender la realidad de su entorno a partir de las necesidades existentes. Es por lo anterior que la Universidad en el contexto general deber√° preparar a sus futuros profesionales para actuar en un espacio, en un contexto y en un universo determinado, para lo cual, se hace necesario formar individuos con la capacidad de analizar, dise√Īar, desarrollar y proponer soluciones integrales y pertinentes a situaciones profesionales concretas. En este proceso de formaci√≥n, el aprendizaje en el plano de la Ingenier√≠a, deber√≠a instruir al futuro profesional para el desarrollo de habilidades en la utilizaci√≥n y la administraci√≥n de herramientas para el avance de soluciones que requieran un tratamiento inteligente de la informaci√≥n, y a su vez, le permitan continuar su formaci√≥n profesional a lo largo de su vida. Por lo tanto, se hace necesario entender de alguna manera la din√°mica con la cual se presentan y como se asumen los cambios en materia tecnol√≥gica en las organizaciones, para ello se hace indispensable una revisi√≥n te√≥rica de las diversas acepciones al respecto, que sirvan como punto de partida para entender y transponer did√°cticamente el proceso de transformaci√≥n tecnol√≥gica organizacional al contexto acad√©mico de formaci√≥n profesional en las instituciones de educaci√≥n superior.

O quinto artigo √© de autoria de Claudio Alberto Mendes Gomes que tem como t√≠tulo ‚ÄúA import√Ęncia do conceito de raz√£o na perspectiva de Pascal em breve compara√ß√£o com o pensamento cartesiano‚ÄĚ, procurando o autor demonstrar teoricamente como se construiu o conceito de raz√£o pascalino difundido nos s√©culos XVI e XVII. Apresentamos o sexto artigo de autoria de Bruno dos Santos Silva, intitulado ‚ÄúO conceito de psicopatia analisado pela criminologia cr√≠tica‚ÄĚ. Em seu artigo o autor investiga o conceito de psicopatia, ainda no s√©culo XIX at√© os dias atuais, utilizando constru√ß√Ķes da Criminologia para interpretar a conforma√ß√£o do objeto psicopatia e que repercuss√Ķes institucionais ela pode trazer.

    Full Text Available Liebe Leserin, lieber Leser Als bei einer Redaktionssitzung das Thema Psychoanalyse ‚Äď lokal zum ersten Mal Gestalt annahm, l√∂ste es Begeisterung aus. Befl√ľgelt hat uns unter anderem die Schilderung einer Arbeit, in der Fotos von Praxen in verschiedenen Teilen der Welt gezeigt werden. Wir wollten der Globalisierung etwas entgegensetzen und bewusst die lokalen Kulturen und Varianten der Psychoanalyse vorstellen und ihnen Wertsch√§tzung entgegenbringen. Die Euphorie setzte sich fort bei der Akquisition von Projekten. Innert K√ľrze hatten wir eine Vielzahl von Kolleginnen und Kollegen vor Augen, denen wir unser Projekt vorstellen wollten und die als Autorinnen, Autoren oder Kontaktpersonen f√ľr allf√§llige Beitr√§ge aus verschiedenen L√§ndern in Frage kamen. Der Hochstimmung folgten dann aber verschiedentlich Entt√§uschungen: So entschlossen sich einige der Autoren im letzten Augenblick, den Artikel doch nicht zu schreiben und f√ľr einige Kulturen/L√§nder war es schwierig, Autoren zu finden. Aber nicht nur unsere Kontakte mit den Autoren beinhalteten ¬ęFremdes¬Ľ, dass f√ľr uns schwer zu assimilieren war. Auch die Texte lehrten uns einiges √ľber den Umgang mit dem Fremden. Bei jenen Autoren und Autorinnen, die direkt aus L√§ndern berichteten, in denen nicht Deutsch gesprochen wird, mussten wir auf Englisch umstellen. Da wir im letzten Heft mit englischsprachigen Arbeiten gute Erfahrungen gemacht hatten, sahen wir dies als Chance, auch international eher wahrgenommen zu werden. Es stellte sich dann aber heraus, dass es doch etwas schwieriger war, als wir uns das vorgestellt hatten. Die jeweils lokale Variante des Englischen als Lingua Franca verunsicherte uns sehr! Manchmal indessen erschien uns das Fremde auch allzu bekannt und der Exotismus-Bonus kam uns abhanden. Eine stereotype Geschichte schien sich an verschiedenen Orten der Welt zu wiederholen. Da waren zuerst ein paar K√ľnstlerinnen, Literaten oder Dadaisten, die nahmen Freud in ihre Gedankenwelt auf. Diese Pioniere verstanden sich nicht als Psychotherapeuten oder Analytikerinnen, sie nahmen Freud als Stimulus, um ihre eigenen Ideen von Befreiung und Kulturkritik zu formulieren. Sp√§ter ‚Äď oder auch gleichzeitig ‚Äď gab es Psychiater und Psychiaterinnen, die die Psychoanalyse als Therapie sch√§tzten, und einige von ihnen gr√ľndeten eine Gesellschaft und traten der Internationalen Vereinigung (IPA bei. Je sp√§ter die L√§nder zur Psychoanalyse stiessen, desto abh√§ngiger von der IPA verlief das Prozedere: Um zur Internationalen Vereinigung zu geh√∂ren, waren nun Shuttle-Analysen nachzuweisen, oder die Kandidaten und Kandidatinnen mussten j√§hrlich f√ľr einige Monate in Paris, London oder New York ihre Lehranalysen absolviere. Das Oszillieren zwischen Bekanntem und der Faszination am Fremden war etwas, was mir schon aus meinem Studium der Ethnologie gel√§ufig war. Versuchen wir, uns diesen Prozessen mit Freuds √úberlegungen zum Unheimlichen zu n√§hern! Sie sind bekanntlich zu einem guten Teil von Ernst Jentsch inspiriert, der ein Nicht-Wissen um den Anderen zum Angelpunkt seiner √úberlegungen machte. Angesichts der existentiellen Angst, die auch bei Heidegger das Unheimliche ausmacht, bewegen wir uns hier auf der Ebene der Spaltung. Dem entsprechend beinhaltet das Kennenlernen einer fremden Kultur zu Beginn oft eine Phase vorurteilsbehafteter Aneignung. Wir werden uns der Unterschiede gewahr, messen die fremden Umgangsformen an den unseren, und f√§llen ein Urteil: Wir idealisieren oder entwerten. Freud hat diesem Ph√§nomen der Konfusion (die durch Spaltung gemeistert wird die Wiederkehr des verdr√§ngten Triebes hinzugef√ľgt. Wenn wir uns unseren W√ľnschen in Bezug auf den Anderen stellen, k√∂nnen wir auf einem √∂dipalen Niveau die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Fremden f√ľhren. Unser Interesse war, herauszufinden, ob die Psychoanalyse eine solche Auseinandersetzung mit dem Fremden erlaubt. Dabei sind indes auch Faktoren von Bedeutung, die mit Besonderheiten der Psychoanalyse als kulturellem und sozialem Ort einhergehen. Die Psychoanalyse √ľberlebte ausserhalb der Universit√§ten, weil in ihr wissenschaftlicher Anspruch, Weltanschauung und therapeutische Praxis auf einmalige Art verkn√ľpft sind. Die Verbreitung der Psychoanalyse geschah nach einem Modus, der normalerweise eher Sekten und Kirchen eigen ist. Es war aber die psychotherapeutische Praxis, und die Tatsache, dass diese in der √Ąrzteschaft Anklang fand, die den Psychoanalytikern und Psychoanalytikerinnen wirtschaftliches √úberleben und der Theorie Verbreitung garantierten. Es ist anzunehmen, dass die √§rztliche Psychoanalyse des √∂fteren eklektisch rezipiert wird. So wurden an einer 2014 durchgef√ľhrten Tagung zu Geographies of Psychoanalysis in Teheran drei Faktoren angef√ľhrt, die angeblich die Attraktivit√§t der Psychoanalyse weltweit ausmachen: 1. Dass dem Patient zugeh√∂rt wird, 2. dass das Trauma verstanden und 3. dass Tr√§ume ernst genommen werden. Daf√ľr, dass die von Freud als Merkmal der psychoanalytischen Arbeit geforderte √úbertragungsanalyse mit der Zeit zu ihrem Recht kommt, sorgen die psychoanalytischen Vereinigungen. Aber, so wurde ebenfalls an der oben erw√§hnten Tagung gefragt, zwingt nicht die Ausbildung zum Psychoanalytiker, indem sie ein fach den Standard-Parametern folgt, der Klientel in aussereurop√§ischen L√§ndern ein gewisses Mass an westlicher Kultur auf? Oder ist es so, dass der Psychoanalyse etwas immanent ist, was sie immer und √ľberall mit der Vorstellung von Befreiung und Emanzipation in Verbindung bringt? Wir sind gespannt, welche der hier angedeuteten Gedanken Sie in Ihrer Lekt√ľre der folgenden Artikel wiederfinden. Vera Saller

    Full Text Available Las vicisitudes en que le ha tocado vivir al hombre del campo, las p√©rdidas frecuentes de las cosechas, la baja productividad de la tierra, el inadecuado uso o la carencia de maquinaria agr√≠cola, la falta de sistemas de riego que garantice un mejor aprovechamiento del suelo, motivaron a los expertos a proponerle al pa√≠s la necesidad de preparar profesionales con una s√≥lida formaci√≥n acad√©mica capaces de solucionar los problemas de ingenier√≠a que tiene la agricultura colombiana, en forma t√©cnica y eficiente. Fue as√≠ como en el a√Īo de 1965 se puso en marcha el primer programa de Ingenier√≠a Agr√≠cola en Colombia y segundo en Am√©rica Latina, siendo su cuna la Universidad Nacional Sede Medell√≠n. Posteriormente, el 27 de marzo de 1969, hace precisamente 30 a√Īos, mediante el acuerdo 33, el Consejo Superior Universitario cre√≥ la carrera de Ingenier√≠a Agr√≠cola en la Sede de Bogot√°, bajo la direcci√≥n de las Facultades de Agronom√≠a e Ingenier√≠a. El 11 de agosto de ese mismo a√Īo, 33 estudiantes iniciaron su carrera, la cual paso a ser administrada por la Facultad de Ingenier√≠a en 1973. En 1978 el Consejo Superior Universitario formaliz√≥ el actual Departamento de Ingenier√≠a Agr√≠cola. Durante estos 30 a√Īos, 7.600 bachilleres han solicitado admisi√≥n a la carrera, de los cuales 2.120 han sido admitidos como estudiantes, logrando el t√≠tulo de Ingeniero 750 profesionales, quienes han hecho aportes importantes al desarrollo del sector agropecuario. Se han realizado cerca de 400 trabajos de grado, distribuidos as√≠: 37% en el √°rea de postcosecha y agroindustrias; 35% en riego, drenajes y conservaci√≥n de suelos; 15% en maquinaria agr√≠cola y mecanizaci√≥n y 13% en el √°rea de construcciones agropecuarias.

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