    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.

    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 “Nutrigenomics & Its Applications in Animal Science”. This review article may fall a little bit short from the strict standards, which are in place for a review article within our journal. However, due to rather new and burgeoning content of the paper we thought our readers might find it quite interesting, so we went ahead with its publication.Finally, we are thinking of designing a new more user-friendly, more reliable website for VRF which can include easy-to-use options for submission, review and tracking manuscripts for everyone. Thus, your suggestions and ideas will be very welcome in this regard.We are always

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    This paper explains why the question is how, not if, today's financial statements should include estimates of the future. Including such estimates is not new, but their use is increasing. This increase results primarily because standard setters believe asset and liability measures that reflect current economic conditions and up-to-date expectations of the future will result in more useful information for making economic decisions, which is the objective of financial reporting.

The author believes that environmental literacy and consciousness among university students in technical fields is very important, since it is usually among middle managers and executives with technical education that environmentally friendly policies and strategies more or less begin. She found that positive relationships to environmental protection and education in this faculty prevailed; however, the level of environmental knowledge gained from their secondary education seemed to be low in most cases. 5 Information texts: Andrew Barton and Jan Vávra report on the proceedings of an academic conference held in Prague in April 2013 called Our Common Present which focused on the array of current challenges facing Central Europe.

    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 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

This year we start with a special issue entitled "What is liquid?", in honour of Douglas Henderson, a member of our Editorial Board, dedicated to his 80th birthday. The collection of papers to appear in this issue is aimed at providing a critical review of the state of the art and of the open questions posed in the theory of liquids. The 2013 ISI impact factor of Condensed Matter Physics is 0.771. In total, 246 citations were made in 2014 on the articles published in our journal according to the ISI Web of Science data. It is our pleasure to list herein three most cited papers in 2014, which are: A.V. Khomenko, N.V. Prodanov, Molecular dynamics simulations of ultrathin water film confined between flat diamond plates, Condens. Matter Phys., 2008, 11, 615; A. Honecker, S. Wessel, Magnetocaloric effect in quantum spin-s chains, Condens. Matter Phys., 2009, 12, 399; and D. Ivaneyko, V. Toshchevikov, M. Saphiannikova, G. Heinrich, Effects of particle distribution on mechanical properties of magneto-sensitive elastomers in a homogeneous magnetic field, Condens. Matter Phys., 2012, 15, 33601. We also introduce changes into editorial processing of the papers and into the editorial structure in order to increase the level of published papers as well as to provide a more rapid service to the authors. In particular, the initial screening of the manuscripts concerning the correspondence for publication in Condensed Matter Physics will be completed by our associate and assistant editors.

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

A simple Google Internet search of the phrase “financial therapy” leads those navigating the World Wide Web directly to the Journal. In conjunction with New Prairie Press, papers, reviews, and profiles are accessible to anyone in the world via the open access journal network, which makes it highly likely that authors will be referenced in additional manuscripts.

    It is 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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 EDITORIAL Este segundo volume da HOLOS é publicado em um momento dos mais difíceis em que passa a sociedade brasileira, fruto do processo de impedimento da presidente da república em tramitação no parlamento. Neste contexto, as políticas públicas na área de ciência e tecnologia, ora em curso, estão no limbo, e é preciso vigilância da comunidade acadêmica para a manutenção do ciclo de ouro vivido nos últimos anos e das garantias da estabilidade institucional e liberdades democráticas. No Google Scholar é observada uma tendência no aumento do índice h5 para 8 e mediana h5 para 3, o que mostra um importante crescimento do indicador em relação ao apresentado no ano passado (h5 = 5 e mediana h5 = 5. Este dado é preliminar, pois sua publicação será efetuada em julho de 2016. O periódico também passa a exigir dos autores o registro no Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID. Isto se deve à necessidade de termos um currículo com informações certificadas disponível na base de dados da HOLOS para facilitar o trabalho de editoria, extração de dados dos autores para repositórios, agências de fomento, entre outras aplicações. É importante informar que os principais periódicos do mundo condicionam os autores realizarem esse registro para a submissão de artigos, se configurando uma tendência da utilização deste registro para o pesquisador no mundo e suas instituições. Neste número são publicadas 33 contribuições, sendo que 29 do Brasil, uma de Cuba, duas da Espanha, uma de Portugal com cooperação com o Brasil e uma da Rússia. Observa-se que 15%  dos artigos publicados são oriundos do exterior. O fluxo de artigos provenientes do exterior observa uma elevação da intensidade de submissões neste último ano. Os esforços para ampliar o número de artigos em língua estrangeira são refletidos pelos 10 artigos, sendo oito em língua inglesa e duas em língua espanhola, os quais representam 30% dos artigos

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

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

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

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

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

Neste contexto de aprendizado, em que o Periódico deve pensar para além do presente, a editoria encontra uma janela para, de forma permanente, disponibilizar esta edição para a comunidade. O esforço para ampliar a presença do Periódico no país e no exterior é apresentado através das figuras 1 e 2, que mostram as origens dos artigos por região e por estado, que ora publicamos.   Figuras disponíveis no arquivo em pdf.   Observa-se nas figuras acima que os artigos estão disseminados em doze estados brasileiros e um na França, destacando-se a região nordeste, que concentra 50% dos artigos e os estados do Rio Grande do Norte e do Rio Grande do Sul, respectivamente com 31% e 22% da origem dos artigos publicados. Este segundo volume disponibiliza vinte e quatro artigos, sendo dez na área de engenharias, oito na área de educação, três na área de administração, um na área de saúde pública, um na área de zootecnia e um na área de cultura. É importante destacar que esses artigos foram produzidos por vinte instituições, entre elas, institutos federais, empresa de pesquisa, universidades federais, estaduais, católicas, privadas e uma universidade francesa.

Este número inaugura la versión digital de la revista que permitirá una mayor circulación de la producción académica que se ofrece. La edición digital ha sido posible por el esfuerzo de la Comisión Editorial y, especialmente, por el trabajo minucioso y dedicado de Juan Manuel Fustes y Alexandre Texeira.             La revista es un proyecto colectivo del Departamento de Enseñanza  y Aprendizaje del Instituto de Educación de la Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Educación de la Universidad de la República, que tiene como objetivo la difusión de investigaciones articuladas en el complejo y no lineal campo de la enseñanza. Desde la Dirección de la Revista es un gusto poder dar continuidad a este proyecto iniciado en el año 2010 por el ahínco del Profesor Luis Behares y el Equipo docente del Departamento.

    the most attention to adapting to contemporary culture, to being relevant. Seen in the light of an ecclesiologically holistic approach or model, the article confirms that all four main types of strategic approach to church development touch on important concerns when a church is to be developed. But one-sidedness comes under criticism nevertheless – this must also be said to represent a reductionist way of thinking about church, from the point of view of a holistic ecclesiology. Råmunddal’s article also describes what this holistic way of thinking about church would necessarily involve. Jan Inge Jenssen identifies and presents topics that may be key themes with regard to current thinking about church development. The approaches and themes have their roots in the church growth movement back in the 50s and 60s. Jenssen gives a critical evaluation of these approaches. One of the weaknesses of the church growth approach, he says, is that its theoretical reasoning is much over-simplified. Moreover, there is little or no systematic discussion of how growth factors are interrelated in a causal model. There is little discussion of challenges relating to implementation, such as how one should approach resistance to change, says Jenssen. Although Jenssen’s analysis is primarily based on behavioral scientific judgment, theological considerations are also included. Jenssen and Råmunddal’s articles both help to put church development into a professional context. One of the obvious reasons that such contributions are important, is that ways of thinking about and practicing church development can easily be dominated by so-called church development concepts – or, as they are called in management textbooks, popular organizational formulae. There is therefore a great need to place the subject of church development in an academic context as regards theological and organizational theory. Jenssen’s contribution consists of showing how central many of the topics that the

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

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

Finally, we present an article by the authors Barbara Marins Pettres, Master in Agro ecosystems from the UFSC, Luiz Carlos Pine Axe, PhD in Agronomy and retired University Professor of the Federal University of Rio Grande Do Sul (UFRGS, Maria José Hötzel, PhD in Animal Science from The University of Western Austrália, Tania Maria de Paula Lyra, PhD in Animal Science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG and Presidency Assessor of the Development Coordination of Higher Education Personnel - CAPES. In their article, they approach the issue of the foot and mouth disease social impacts, and mention that Santa Catarina is the only Brazilian State that does not immunize the bovine herd against this illness. The authors argue the policies that state adopts concerning this illness, especially the non-vaccination, and relate this fact with ethical questions of human and animal welfare. The study concludes that the real experience of an outbreak results in dramatic, social consequences for the affected families, showing a long-term rupture in these families’ rural lifestyles. Last, but not least, this issue also brings the book review of ‘the Ritual Use of the Plants of Power’ by Labate and Goulart, Editora Mercado das Letras, São Paulo, 2005. 518p. Jose Eliezer Mikosz, PhD student at the Post graduation Program in Human Sciences (PPGICH/UFSC and Master in Technological Innovations from the UTFPR - Curitiba PR, introduces us to this book.

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

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

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

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

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

Tanto Manovich quanto Ziegfried estudam as novas mí­dias no fluxo das conquistas que marcaram a civilização ocidental. Por isso, os dois estudiosos recorrem à arqueologia. O segundo semestre de 2001 foi particularmente rico de eventos na área dos estudos de comunicação e da semiótica. Dentre as reuniões cientí­ficas realizadas, dois foram noticiados nessa edição. O IV Encontro Internacional sobre o Pragmatismo e o V Congresso Brasileiro de Semiótica. A II Mostra Interpoesia também mereceu espaço nessa sessão. Obras fundamentais foram lançadas enriquecendo os tí­tulos de nossa pesquisa acadêmica. Foram resenhados os livros sobre as matrizes do pensamento, de Lucia Santaella, sobre arquitetura urbana, de Lucrécia Ferrara, sobre a obra de Kellreuter fazem parte dessa galeria. Na sessão de projeto, Paulo Angerami apresenta sua pesquisa fotográfica com câmeras. Embora o projeto editorial de Galáxia tivesse concebido a sessão de notí­cias para o relato de eventos culturais, cientí­ficos e artí­sticos, a revista não se deixa de noticiar as perdas de pessoas ilustres.

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

    Full Text Available Desde 2014, a Em Tese, revista editada pelos discentes do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Sociologia Política (PPGSP da Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC, vem passando por uma série de reformulações estruturais. A definição de critérios mais altos na seleção de avaliadores, a introdução de um formulário de avaliação dos artigos para guiar os pareceristas sobre os aspectos que devem ser avaliados e a manutenção da periodicidade na publicação das edições levaram à incorporação da revista em vários indexadores nacionais e internacionais de prestígio. A presença nesses indexadores e a utilização de outras plataformas virtuais, como o facebook, no qual o periódico recentemente atingiu a marca de mil curtidores, por sua vez, ampliou a divulgação das atividades editoriais da revista como as chamadas de artigos e expandiu largamente o número de acessos, que ultrapassam uma centena de milhares de acessos por ano. Os avanços nessa edição ficam por conta da incorporação da revista a mais um indexador importante, o Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ. Além disso, houve o acréscimo de importantes ferramentas internas que melhoram os processos de edição do periódico, tal como o desenvolvimento [ainda em construção] de um manual de “passo a passo” indicando cada etapa de edição da Em Tese, bem como, um guia de orientações de posturas éticas para nortear e sistematizar o trabalho dos membros do corpo editorial. Iniciativas como essas, visam conferir maior profissionalismo à revista e, consequentemente, maior segurança a seus colaboradores e leitores. A crescente respeitabilidade da revista no meio acadêmico, medida principalmente pela diversificação e amplitude nacional dos artigos recebidos, é prova do acerto dessa estratégia.

    Full Text Available Mark KieranDana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA, USARapid advances in the molecular characterization of cancer have resulted in new approaches to treatment. For greatest impact, targeted agents, in combination with traditional therapies, will need to be tested in each age group and for each disease. Adolescents and young adults are being recognized as a distinct group of patients that unfortunately are under-represented in formal clinical trials and new treatment assessments. The reason for this are multiple and include the lack of insurance coverage for many as they transition to independence from their parents, the sense of invincibility that many young adults feel, the types of tumors observed in these patients, and the lack of coordinated clinical trial consortiums for this age group.

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

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

    In this issue of the Journal of Helminthology I have much pleasure in including a selection of papers drawn from two workshops, one on 'Nematode Population Genetics' and another on the 'Ecology of Fish Parasites' held in April 1998 at Exeter during the Spring Meeting of the British Society for Parasitology (BSP).The aim of the workshop on 'Nematode Population Genetics' convened by Dr Mark Viney, University of Edinburgh, is to review the current state of knowledge of this topic and to consider future research priorities. Following Mark Viney's overview, Michael Blouin, Oregon State University, Corvallis, USA, considers the effects of parasite life histories on mitochondrial DNA diversity in nematodes. Marleen Roos et al., Institute for Animal Science and Health and the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands, then review polymorphic DNA markers in the genome of parasitic nematodes whereas in the fourth and final paper of this series Alison Galvani and Sunetra Gupta, University of Oxford, consider the effects of mating probability on the population genetics of nematodes.Two papers from the workshop on the 'Ecology of Fish Parasites', convened by Professor Clive Kennedy, University of Exeter, focus on the community ecology of helminths in fish and include a study by Clive Kennedy et al., University of Exeter and University of Rome on the 'Composition and diversity of helminth communities in eels in the River Tiber: long term changes and comparison with insular Europe'. This is followed by an invited paper by William Font, Southeastern Louisiana University, USA on 'Parasites in paradise: patterns of helminth distribution in Hawaiian stream fishes'.I wish to express my grateful thanks to Mark Viney and Clive Kennedy for their assistance in the publication of these papers for this special issue.

    The 11th meeting of the 'Ionizing Radiation and Polymers' symposium, IRaP2014 was held in Jeju Island, Korea between October 5 and 9, 2014. The foundations of IRaP symposium were established more than 20 years ago, and over the years it has grown to be a well established and appreciated symposium in the field of ionizing radiation and polymers. The event was organized by the concerted efforts and generous contributions of Korean Ministry of Science ICT and Future Planning, Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute, Korean Society of Radiation Industry, Korea Nuclear International Cooperation Foundation and International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA. Following the traditions of previous IRaP symposia, oral presentations were collected in daily single sessions throughout the week allowing the participants to listen to every talk. Like in previous symposia entire spectrum of the effects of ionizing radiation on polymers were elaborated by oral and poster presentations. The progress and new trends in radiation chemistry, physics and processing of polymers covering nanotechnology, nanocomposites, biopolymers, membranes, natural polymers, surface modification, lithography, medical applications, packaging materials, polymers used in NPP environments were presented and discussed. This list by no means includes all the subjects covered by the symposium and a quick look at the contents of this proceedings will reveal the titles of many interesting subjects. This is another unique aspect of IRaP symposia, one can hardly find a relatively small sized meeting including such a variety of subjects. The participants of the IRaP2014 were also fortunate to learn about the new developments on the hardware of new X-ray and E-beam devices.

    Full Text Available During the last decades, many applications of Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering have arisen for the characterization and remediation of environmental problems. As a result, now­adays this subject has become one of the most interesting areas of research in applied electrochemistry, with hundreds of papers published every year and many applications already ava­ilable in the market. This special issue contains sixteen very valuable contributions on these topics, written by highly recognized authors and covering the most relevant areas of interest within the topic. Environmental monitoring is a matter of the major importance because it helps to prevent and remediate pollution with the development of novel warning detection systems. For this reason, the first sets of contributions are related to characterization of environmental issues with electro­chemical methods and it contains valuable information about new tools for the characterization of organics, heavy metals and sulphur. Treatment of industrial wastes is one of the more stimulating environmental applications nowadays. Water is extensively used in industry not only as a heat exchanger fluid or a cleaning agent, but also for the production of many chemicals. As a consequence, significant volumes of waste­water are produced every day in our industries and they get into the environment after their treatment with technologies which are not always completely effective. An electrochemically-based solution to this problem is faced in this special issue with exciting contributions on electrolysis, electro-Fenton oxidation and electrocoagulation of wastewater, in which technologies for the efficient removal of dyes, persistent chemicals and inorganic pollutants are evaluated. Finally, the last set of papers included in this special issue focusses on soil remediation and bio-electrochemical treatments. Electrokinetic soil remediation (EKSR is one of the most motivating topics of

    Full Text Available Traditionally, strategic management has been analyzed from an economic perspective, with approaches aiming at understanding the mechanisms underlying firms' performance. The most relevant theories, such as the structure-strategy-performance paradigm by Porter for the analysis of competitive advantage, the game theory about competitive interaction, the evolutionary perspective and the resource-based view, tried to point out conditions and causal mechanisms of competitiveness, linking internal resources to the generation of value in a market context. More recently, a psychological perspective has been adopted in several studies in order to contribute to understanding organizational and market dynamics. The field of analysis shifted from the external environment to the internal resources of an economic organization, paying increasing attention to the cognitive and behavioral processes. However, the emphasis put by psychology of strategic management literature on behavioral and cognitive aspects of strategy formulation brought to undervalue emotional and affective aspects, leading to a still inadequate representation of strategic management. There is still a lot of work in terms of interdisciplinary studies to succeed in capturing a vision which includes all perspectives that need to be taken for a complete understanding of the decision-making process of companies and organizations. This journal aims at encouraging this interdisciplinary approach, firstly by integrating the economic and the management perspectives with the behavioral and psychological ones.

    This issue of Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics sees the launch of a new section dedicated to the applied aspects of interface and surface science. The articles included in the section, in this, and in forthcoming issues reflect the growing practical importance of this field. The development of techniques for controlling growth and investigating characteristics of interfaces and surfaces has led to the creation of a wide range of devices whose performance may be highly dependent on interface and surface properties. With the introduction of the Applied Interfaces and Surfaces section we hope to provide a forum tailored to the needs of scientists concerned with all aspects of this field, thus reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The section is intended to complement the Surface and Interface Science section of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, which covers the fundamental aspects of this field. The Applied Interfaces and Surfaces section particularly invites papers on the topics listed below. Emphasis will be given to research relating to practical techniques for the growth, analysis and characterization of surfaces and interfaces, and on the effects of surface and interface properties on devices and applications. Practical aspects of the growth of interfaces, surfaces and thin films Nanoscale mechanical properties of interfaces and residual stresses Thermal treatment of surfaces Techniques for the preparation of surfaces Techniques for the analysis and characterization of surfaces and interfaces, such as AES, SIMS, STM, TEM, AFM, etc Surface modification using plasmas and other techniques Given its aims and scope, I am particularly pleased to launch this new section with a collection of papers from the recent International Symposium on Atomic Bonding at Internal Interfaces: Modelling and Spectroscopy.

    Full Text Available The current issue of Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching brings together six contributions written by scholars from Poland and abroad which deal with a wide array of issues related to learning and teaching additional languages in different educational contexts. First, Weronika Szubko-Sitarek reports the findings of two experimental studies conducted within the lexical decision task paradigm which aimed to investigate the cognate facilitation effect in the process of recognizing words in a third language by Polish unbalanced trilinguals who, in addition to their mother tongue, were proficient in English and had variable command of German. In the next paper, Sane M. Yagi and Saleh Al-Salman make a strong case for the use of tracking software in writing pedagogy as a tool for providing invaluable insights into the process of composing texts, but also a method of stimulating reflection and promoting strategic learning. The research-based contributions by Ewa Waniek-Klimczak and Aleksandra Wach, in turn, shift the emphasis to sociolinguistic issues. The former presents the findings of a qualitative study which examined the acculturation patterns of three recent Polish immigrants to the United Kingdom, who were expert users of English, in relation to their formal and informal language learning experiences, while the latter uses questionnaire data obtained from a respectable sample of Polish-speaking English majors to shed light on their preferences concerning pronunciation norms based on the native-speaker model and the Lingua Franca Core. The last two papers included in this issue report the findings of studies exploring the role of anxiety in learning foreign language skills and subsystems. In the first of these, Christina Gkonou examines the interfaces between speaking and writing anxiety manifested by Greek learners of English as a foreign language in a private school setting and, in the second, Magdalena Szyszka taps the relationship

Reviewing research carried out in a defined territory, such as a state, on its contrasting and sometimes complementary productive systems, allows us to visualize the topics on development by its scientific community frequently associated with the problems of a productive chain, the lack of sustainability, contamination affecting the regions and their living beings, the impacts of socioeconomic problems on food production and productivity. In this particular case livestock-related topics dealing with the yield of forages used for cattle grazing are revised, as well as epidemiological and animal-health aspects referring to the presence of paratuberculosis in goats and cryptosporidiosis in calves. As for agricultural aspects, biofertilization with rhizobacteria and mycorrhizal fungi in citrus is presented as an alternative to traditional fertilization; in the case of papaya, the integrated management of its pest mites as well as a participatory methodology to achieve its technological transfer are revised. In addition, the influence that human migration has on the change of land use in a mountain range community is presented, and the eating habits related with the potential practice of horticulture in peri-urban families from the subhumid tropics are revised. Some aquacultural elements are also included, such as the presence of parasitic microorganisms in the oyster depending on the season of the year, the cultivation of tilapia fry in water recirculation systems, basic studies on the genetic improvement of the crayfish, as well as the establishment of a hydroponic-aquaponic system where cultivation of basil and production of Malaysian prawn are combined.

    This is my last issue of Plasma Sources Science and Technology in my role as Editor-in-Chief. I would like to take this opportunity to describe the origins of what has been for me a 17-year adventure. Maureen Clarke, then responsible for commissioning new journals at IOP, first conceived of a journal devoted to low-temperature plasmas. She contacted me, and, I imagine, others in the plasma community, with a set of questions about this possible new journal. Although I've lost that letter, I still have a copy of my e-mail response to her from 2 July 1990, from which the following extracts are taken: Dear Ms. Clarke, Thank you for an opportunity to comment on your new journal—Plasma Sources and Plasma Processing. I believe that there is a currently a place for a journal which is concerned with plasma source design and characteristics related to plasma processing and that this need is likely to continue for at least 10 years or more. [ . . . ] Right now there is considerable interest in the plasma processing community on the relative advantages of ECR and other microwave sources versus 13 MHz systems and a variety of different types of both sources have been invented and more seem to be coming along each day. Helicon sources are also starting to be interesting. [ . . . ] My view is that plasma processing includes all aspects of processes which employ charged particle plasmas in manufacturing processes. This runs from ion implantation out of very low pressure (pages long. (To see the first table of contents, click here). The articles were arranged by the appropriate neutral pressures, a procedure that continued until the onset of electronic publication.

    Full Text Available Retention and persistence are at the forefront of attention by students, parents, and state and federal lawmakers.  We continue several decades of increasing education costs and the perception of steadily decreasing returns on investment of time and money required to achieve a higher education credential. Thus, a special issue devoted to retention is timely.  Included in this special issue of the Higher Learning Research Communications journal are a number of thought pieces and literature reviews that represent diverse perspectives on retention. Dr. Watson Scott Swail provides a provocative essay, A Different Viewpoint on Retention, in which he challenges readers to reflect on the key issues regarding retention of students. While he provides compelling statistics on the growing costs of getting a college degree, he reminds us that the core issue is one of student preparation. Dr. Swail also encourages institutions to determine what success means in its own context, through statistical analysis of predictors of retention and persistence whose results can be socialized at all who support students at the institution. Dr. Gary Burkholder and Nicole Holland provide an international perspective on retention and persistence. Through introductory analysis of the state of retention and persistence research in areas outside the United States, they encourage readers to think about retention more globally.  The authors ask the readers to consider how what we have learned about higher education, as well as retention and persistence, in the United States, can help researchers and practitioners to address higher education concerns in more meaningful and helpful ways. Dr. Rebecca Jobe and Jim Lenio then provide insight on retention and persistence research across student and institutional types as well as across educational sectors.  The authors convincingly suggest that retention is a concern that should provide a common ground for all institutions

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

As Vera Viviane Schmidt studies the organized society, she makes a short historical review of the public health politics in Brazil since 1980, confronting them with the general guidelines of the National State politics. She then analyses the concept of civil society and its practical concretizing, and afterwards studies the ways of political interventions in the organized society, then the social movements, without criticizing, as we often see in many other people’s articles, the conceptualization and methodology, but rereading the pertinent theories applying all these analyses to the health politics, and showing, inversely, how successful practices can interfere in the discussions of the paradigm. In this set of texts about the relationship between methodology of sciences and the political action, one can notice another set that has a bigger incidence in other basic areas, illuminating, this way, the two kinds of observations and research results. Steven Pinker discusses an issue that worries the anthropologists a lot and that has recently received new guidelines of solutions: Does the determination of the human behavior receive more influences from nature (genetics or from culture (the artificial society? And again we face the “accusation”: methodology and wrong concepts in the basic sciences have hazardous consequences in the practical action – including family raising. Rafael Raffaelli deepens the man’s acting issue as he analyses the changes of the psychoanalytical conceptions and their approach to phenomenology: more than the method, or the theory of the method, the author enters the epistemology and the reviews of theories about the human

    Full Text Available Dear TOJDE Readers, Welcome to the Volume 13 Number: 4 of TOJDE! In this issue, one book review and 26 articles of 49 authors from 15 different countries around the world have been published. These published articles are from, Bahrain, Brazil, Greece, India, Iran, Lithuania, Malaysia, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, USA and Zimbabwe. First all, you should know that if a submission picks up from three TOJDE editors between 4.5 and 9 over all 9 credits, it means that this submission can be published in TOJDE in the coming issue. However, since the publishing priority of the accepted papers belongs to the highest scored ones, submissions which receive a score between 4.5 and 5 or 6 may wait and be archived for publishing later on. TOJDE administration respected this publishing rule up to now. Therefore, some accepted submissions which obtained over 4.5 have not been published up to now. These submissions were waiting for publishing in TOJDE in the future. In this issue, we decided to give them a chance to be published. For this reason, the current issue includes more papers than the previous issues. The 1st article arrived from Turkey and written by Serkan ÇELIK, Hasan ATAK and Ahmet BAŞAL, on “Predictive Role of Personality Traits on Internet Addiction". Their study was set and tested on tertiary level students receiving education within two learning modes: face to face and distance education. The 2nd article is titled as “Web-Based Adaptive Testing System (Wats For Classifying Students Academic Ability” which is written by Jaemu LEE, Kwangho KIM from Busan National University of Education, South Korea and Sanghoon PARK, from Northwestern State University of Louisiana, U.S.A.

Furthermore some microeconomic effects referring to localization of distance learning courses are outlined. Finally several unsolved issues in costing distance education are summarized. The eleventh article arrived from Nigeria, which is titled as “Designing E-Education Supports in E-Health Based Systems”, written by Ikhu-Omoregbe, NICHOLAS. This paper presents the experience gained in designing mobile health care applications is used to proffer e-Education functionalities in the design of healthcare systems to enhance their acceptance in the medical domain. The application discussed, uses the Unified Modelling Language, mobile, and Java-based technologies for its development. The application provides a real-time access to medical information at the points of health-care delivery within health care centres. Continuing education centers mainly organize activities for the society in the fields that have gained importance on the improvement of individuals with a view of career building, improving professional knowledge and skills, achieving new skills and supplying individual development needs. Such centers have been established within universities through the principle of making continuing education accessible to everyone as a starting point for a lifelong learning process. These centers which aim at providing continuing education, implement more flexible programs compared to those executed at higher education institutions. Next article is which numbered as 12, from Turkey. Article is entitled as “Structure and Functions of the Continuing Education Centers at Turkish Universities”, written by Mehmet Metin ARSLAN, from Kirikkale University.

    published. The All Results Journals: Biol is a peer reviewed journal developed to publish original, innovative and novel research articles resulting in negative results. This peer-reviewed scientific journal publishes theoretical and empirical papers that report negative findings and research failures in Biology and related fields. Submissions should have a negative focus; experiments that yield negative results will be given more preference. All theoretical and methodological perspectives are welcomed. We also encourage the submission of short papers/communications presenting counter-examples to usually accepted conjectures or to published papers. Negative results in Biology Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy. Biology is a vast subject containing many subdivisions, topics, and disciplines. It seems with our ever increasing ability to dissect biological systems to finer detail, simplicity of explanation becomes more elusive. With this in mind, The All Results Journals serves as a platform and resource for your important negative observations that stand the test of rigorous scientific scrutiny and methodology in the complex fields of biology. Data collected under exceptional experimental design that may not support a convention in a given area of research should and can be reported. Negative results shape the development of effective therapeutic agents, help us understand what cell types are critical for autoimmune pathogenesis and redefine the molecular targets of a drug. These data serve to drive the scientific method forward by showing the path not to follow. As scientists we strive for remarkable observations within biological systems that will further expand our understanding of the human condition, aging, cancer, autoimmunity, etc. At the All Results Journal we know how science gets done; sometimes the pieces just don’t add up

    To open this first issue of 2009 I would like to update you on the current state of the Journal and to look ahead to our plans and goals for the year ahead. I am delighted to report that Plasma Sources Science and Technology (PSST) is in excellent health and in 2008 enjoyed the highest number of annual submissions in its history. The number of papers downloaded from our online services increased by 25% compared with the previous year, indicating that the Journal is reaching a wider audience than ever before. Our Impact Factor (2.12) remains high and very competitive with other journals in the field. The success of the Journal is of course a reflection of the excellent research which is being conducted by the plasma physics community. I extend my thanks to our authors for continuing to choose PSST as a forum to report on for their outstanding work and to our referees, whose insightful comments and constructive criticism are instrumental in maintaining the quality of our publication. My many thanks also go to Richard van de Sanden, Bill Graham and Noah Hershkowitz and to the team at IOP Publishing who have supported me through my first full year as Editor-in-Chief. I particularly thank Caroline Wilkinson for her mentoring guidance. At the beginning of 2008 we introduced a revised Editorial Policy which emphasized the need for all papers submitted in PSST to focus on fundamental plasma properties (http://www.iop.org/EJ/journal/-page=scope/0963-0252 link to scope page). Our intention was to re-affirm the original guiding principles of the Journal and to strengthen its identity as a unique destination for research into the fundamental science of low temperature plasmas. The task of enforcing this policy---while remaining responsive to new areas of research---has proven to be quite a challenge. On occasion deciding whether a submission falls within or outside of the editorial policy comes down to a 'judgement-call' on the part of the editorial team. It is in cases like

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

Since the publication of the first issue in February 2005, an extensive amount of gratitude and positive feedbacks as well as an increasing number of paper submissions we have received from all parts of the academic world confirm that the existence of such an international and multilingual journal can be very beneficial to provide a platform for cross-cultural discussion and understanding of educational theory and practice. In addition, the contributions to the journal and the requests for special issues from across the globe such as from North America, Africa, Middle East, Europe and Eastern Asia convince us that IJPE is making a significant progress toward one of its mission of providing a glocal atmosphere and ongoing dialogue to globally represent multiple and local views on educational issues. Doubtlessly, such evidences have been given us additional confidence, power and strong belief to continue with what we are trying to accomplish. We would like to thank you for your encouragements and constructive suggestions and request that please continue to do so in order to make this journal successful and vibrant.

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

    Full Text Available 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

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

  5. 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—aside from postings—we attempted to establish a core of authors who would exclusively write reviews. The second topic describes an analyses of 131 archived files (first drafts of reviews published in FQS and the analyses of the e-mail contacts between the reviewers and the editorial team which accompany the peer review process. One result of our analyses is that the quality of a review is independent from way the reviewer was recruited (postings on listservs or established core reviewer; no significant differences can be seen between the two groups (reviewers found via listservs or established reviewers. More, important, however, is the intensive "communication work" between editors and reviewers—a necessary communication to guarantee standardization and maintenance of quality. This is critical as our focus is on the review as a "unique contribution" within the research community. To give an insight into the intensive communication work an anonymous case study of a "failed" review is included. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs040115

    Vigencia de la tradición.

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

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

La apertura de la revista también es extensiva a los textos y temas estudiados: textos antiguos y modernos; orales y escritos; impresos o transmitidos por otros medios.

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

With this journal we would like to harmonize the dialectical oxymoron: to go back to the origins in order to better understand modernity, to critically observe the global from the local (and vice versa, to examine the complex relationship between the Orient and the West. We support W.R. Parker in his 1964 dictum: “to live intellectually in one’s own time is as provincial and misleading as to live intellectually only in one’s own Editorial Littera Aperta 1 (2013 ii culture”. The vicious circle can derive into a virtuous circle, a means to reach and apprehend transculturalism. The texts, authors and genres approached do not necessarily have to limit themselves to the authors canonically commended to the occidental Parnassus. More often than not, genres, authors and mass media pulled over the margins of the shores of high culture have a wider impact. Object of attention can and should also be artists in different platforms, such as cinema, comic, television, music, internet, video game console, and even smartphone devices. The journal will also welcome didactic and pedagogical studies in Humanities (both theoretical and practical aspects; interviews to figures who have a say in order to throw some light, without dazzling any of us either, on the seas that we are determined to sail from today onwards; and finally, book reviews which deal with relevant current publications, that we prefer imbibed with critique and broad-minded perspective rather than descriptive and over simplistic. It has been stated that Life —and therefore also a journal’s Life— is the combined result of Fate and Need, in relation to parameters and factors unknown to humans. We think that the Need that Littera Aperta was born existed. In addition, we know that it is possible to build Fate together with work and excitement and, last but not least, with a

    Beddoe, Alun H.

    2006-07-01

    In July 1956, 50 years ago, the first issue of Physics in Medicine and Biology (PMB) was published. It was subtitled The Journal of the Hospital Physicists' Association and published in association with the Philosophical Magazine by Taylor and Francis. Subscriptions were £1 per part or £3 10s for an annual subscription. The Editor, Professor J E Roberts, prefaced the first issue with a cautious editorial noting: The appearance of a new journal is usually greeted with mixed feelings by scientific workers, a common response being that there are far too many journals already. Justification for a new publication is only possible if there is a clearly defined gap in the publishing facilities available to workers in a particular scientific field.... Professor Roberts ended by seeking support from the scientific community for the new venture. He certainly got it! From a tentative few hundred pages in four issues a year for the first few years, the journal is now issued twice monthly with nearly 8000 pages expected in volume 51. In this anniversary issue we have invited some 28 senior authors to submit papers on a range of subjects spanning the discipline. We decided that to be an author one had to be old, but age was not to be the only criterion! Indeed readers will recognize all names as major contributors to both the development of medical physics and the success of PMB. Authors were not asked to write formal topical reviews of the state-of-the-art of the sub-disciplines which make up medical physics, but rather to present short historical reviews, didactic in style, perhaps highlighting the role of PMB in the development of their fields. Nevertheless, other than a page limit (which many subsequently ignored!) no formal format was imposed on authors, so what follows is a range of contributions from the almost conversational, personal statement to the more formal and familiar scientific paper. Whatever the writing style we are confident that readers will gain some

    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.

It covered subjects which are partially sub/problems of the Human Machine Interaction and behavior influenced by road traffic, as well results from very distant disciplines.DCIS gathers under one roof the results of the research in many scientific and industrial branches, which are based on safety, transportation, industrial design, medicine or psychology. The part called “safety” gathers in additional approaches of forensic experts and road safety inspectors. The conference was opened to participants coming from areas of basic and/or applied research, forensic experts’ departments, car industries, design and ergonomics, medical research etc.With the half-ten jubilee, this event was composed hand in hand with the original exhibition devoted to 100 years of development of Czech car bodywork focused on cabriolet and coupé style cars.

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

    We aimed to assess the endorsement of the Consolidation Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement by Chinese journals of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its incorporation into their editorial processes. PubMed, Embase and major Chinese databases were searched to identify journals of TCM from China for inclusion. The latest 'instruction for authors' (IFA) of each included journal was obtained and any text mentioning CONSORT or CONSORT extension papers was extracted. Subsequently, the editor of each of the included journals was surveyed about their journal's endorsement of the CONSORT recommendations and their incorporation into editorial and peer review processes. Sixty-three journals of TCM from China were examined. Of these, only three (5%) and one (2%) of the 63 journals mentioned the CONSORT statement and extension papers, respectively, in their IFA. Fifty-four of 63 (86%) of surveyed journals responded, with the majority of respondents being editors. Only 20% (11/54) of the respondents reported that they had any knowledge of the CONSORT statement. Only 6% (3/54) of the editors reported that they required authors to comply with the CONSORT statement or that they incorporated it into their peer review and editorial processes. TCM journals in China endorsing the CONSORT statement constituted a small percentage of the total. The majority of editors surveyed were not familiar with the content of the CONSORT statement and extension papers. We strongly recommend that the China Periodicals Association issue a policy to promote the endorsement of the CONSORT statement and conduct relevant training for journal editors in China.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

  7. EDITORIAL: Editor's Introduction

    Blackburn, D. A.

    1990-01-01

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

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

    Standard and Droplet Precautions are considered adequate to control the transmission of influenza in most health care situations. Vaccination of health care staff, carers and vulnerable patients against seasonal and, eventually, pandemic influenza strains is an essential protective strategy. Management principles include: performance of hand hygiene before and after every patient contact or contact with the patient environment, in accord with the national 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene Standard; disinfection of the patient environment; early identification and isolation of patients with suspected or proven influenza; adoption of a greater minimum distance of patient separation (2 metres) than previously recommended; use of a surgical mask and eye protection for personal protection on entry to infectious areas or within 2 metres of an infectious patient; contact tracing for patient and health care staff and restriction of prophylactic antivirals mainly to those at high risk of severe disease; in high aerosol-risk settings, use of particulate mask, eye protection, impervious long-sleeved gown, and gloves donned in that sequence and removed in reverse sequence, avoiding self-contamination; exclusion of symptomatic staff from the workplace until criteria for non-infectious status are met; reserving negative-pressure ventilation rooms (if available) for intensive care patients, especially those receiving non-invasive ventilation; ensuring that infectious postpartum women wear surgical masks when caring for their newborn infants and practise strict hand hygiene; and implementation of special arrangements for potentially infected newborns who require nursery or intensive care.

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

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

    After a brief discussion about results for occupational exposure in New Zealand and the UK, a short editorial raises a number of questions about personal dosimetry practice. These questions include whether the right people are being monitored and whether less attention should be paid to the monitoring of certain groups of workers who are occupationally exposed to external beta/gamma radiation, and more to the monitoring of workers or members of the general public who are exposed to higher doses from radon daughters, so as to focus attention on the areas where the largest savings in collective dose could be achieved.

    2012-01-01

    Disclosure of conflicts of interest in biomedical research is receiving increased attention. The authors sought to define current disclosure policies and how they relate to disclosure statements provided by authors in major oncology journals. The authors identified all oncology journals listed in the Thomson Institute for Scientific Information and sought their policies on conflict-of-interest disclosure. For a subset of journals with an Impact Factor >2.0, they catalogued the number and type of articles and the details of the published disclosures in all papers from the 2 most recent issues. Disclosure policies were provided by 112 of 131 journals (85%); 99 (88%) of these requested that authors disclose conflicts of interest (mean Impact Factor for these journals: 4.6), whereas the remaining 13 (12%) did not (mean Impact Factor: 2.9). Ninety-three journals (94%) required financial disclosure, and 42 (42%) also sought nonfinancial disclosures. For a subset of 52 higher-impact journals (Impact Factor >2.0), we reviewed 1734 articles and identified published disclosures in 51 journals (98%). Many of these journals (31 of 51, 61%) included some disclosure statement in >90% of their articles. Among 27 journals that published editorials/commentaries, only 14 (52%) included disclosures with such articles. There was no publication of any nonfinancial conflicts of interest in any article reviewed. Disclosure policies and the very definition of conflict of interest varied considerably among journals. Although most journals had some policy in this area, a substantial proportion did not publish disclosure statements consistently, with deficiencies particularly among editorials and commentaries.

    The CONSORT Statement provides recommendations for reporting randomized controlled trials. We assessed the extent to which leading medical journals that publish reports of randomized trials incorporate the CONSORT recommendations into their journal and editorial processes. This article reports on two observational studies. Study 1: We examined the online version of 'Instructions to Authors' for 165 high impact factor medical journals and extracted all text mentioning the CONSORT Statement or CONSORT extension papers. Any mention of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) or clinical trial registration were also sought and extracted. Study 2: We surveyed the editor-in-chief, or editorial office, for each of the 165 journals about their journal's endorsement of CONSORT recommendations and its incorporation into their editorial and peer-review processes. Study 1: Thirty-eight percent (62/165) of journals mentioned the CONSORT Statement in their online 'Instructions to Authors'; of these 37% (23/62) stated this was a requirement, 63% (39/62) were less clear in their recommendations. Very few journals mentioned the CONSORT extension papers. Journals that referred to CONSORT were more likely to refer to ICMJE guidelines (RR 2.16; 95% CI 1.51 to 3.08) and clinical trial registration (RR 3.67; 95% CI 2.36 to 5.71) than those journals which did not.Study 2: Thirty-nine percent (64/165) of journals responded to the on-line survey, the majority were journal editors. Eighty-eight percent (50/57) of journals recommended authors comply with the CONSORT Statement; 62% (35/56) said they would require this. Forty-one percent (22/53) reported incorporating CONSORT into their peer-review process and 47% (25/53) into their editorial process. Eighty-one percent (47/58) reported including CONSORT in their 'Instructions to Authors' although there was some inconsistency when cross checking information on the journal's website.

    Full Text Available Few theses, proposals and books in game studies start without some statement of the importance of video games as a media format. However, despite this emphasis on the industry’s size and importance, very little academic attention goes toward what is behind the process of designing games. Game developer Katharine Neil, writing about the state of the game industry and its relation to academia mounts a call to arms. “We can demand research and development into design support technology — not for more tools for prototyping and production or metrics, but for tools that support design thinking. For Neil, these have led to a palpable stagnation in game design. Judging by the articles selected for this issue of Press Start, young game scholars increasingly seek to ameliorate both the lacking academic reflection on game design; and the lack of communication that Neil diagnoses between academics and game makers.

    Deputies between 1990 and 2013. The relationship between politicians and local people within decision-making process, which is depicted as a consequence of this conflict, is then discussed. Interesting conclusions concern the plurality of dialogue and roles of the actors within it; the influence of scientists on the solutions; and the inflammatory and emotional characteristics of recent debate. As a contrast, which serves as a counterargument to show the power of civic society, Vendula Zahumenská refers to a case in Hradec Králové where environmentalists and local developers have been in conflict concerning the development and commercial use of the Na Plachtě natural monument. This case study shows the role of public participation in environmental protection and describes the specific opportunities for influencing environmental decision-making. But there are cases in CR where declared economic interests are so strong that they eliminate dialogue with civic society – for example, as a result of brown coal mining and its associated industrial development, 106 towns and villages were obliterated in North Bohemia and its population was resettled to newly built prefabricated housing estates. A Case study analysing biographic interviews with the displaced people of Tuchomyšl is presented by Ivana Hermová. The author shows that the former Tuchomyšlers continue to identify strongly with the social space of the obliterated village, and discovers how they reflect on their forced eviction 35 years after the physical destruction of the village. That these conclusions concerning the involvement of social actors might be reflected (and used in the practice of school education, is described by Alois Hynek, Břetislav Svozil, Jakub Trojan and Jan Trávníček. In a reflection on the Deblínsko landscape project these authors refer to the roles of stakeholders including a university, primary school and kindergarten, and also owners, users, decision-makers, shareholders and

    The close of a 5-year editorship gives opportunity to reflect on the highs and the lows of an editorship. The goal of such reflection is to assist both authors and reviewers in interacting with a biomedical journal, and to foster interest among individuals contemplating an editorship. Among the highs was the privilege of publishing high-quality original scientific work within the scope of the journal; in this instance mechanistic studies of disease. Although review articles and editorials have their reward, it is the publication of original peer-reviewed work that constitutes the true basis for advancing biomedical science. This is the heart of journal publication. Second, the editorial interaction with submitting authors in bringing their work to publication is itself highly rewarding, and can lead to longer-term collegial working relationships between editors and authors. The anonymous expert reviewers also play a key role in bringing outstanding scientific work to successful publication. Collectively, authors, editors, and reviewers constitute an important 'community of science'. Third, working together as an editorial team, especially through the weekly 'journal clubs' that a regular editorial meeting affords, is commended as a key reward of any editorial group taking on journal management. The lows included sifting through submitted manuscripts in which the rigor of science was not satisfactory, and encountering specific instances of compromised scientific integrity--fortunately rare. In both instances, the editorial commitment is to publish high-quality original science; a necessary corollary is identifying those submissions, through rigorous but fair review, which do not meet journal standards. In the end, editorship is a highly rewarding experience, and very much conducive to sustaining the wonder of science that drew us to this profession.

Analysis indicated dependence between understanding of satire and sex and regular readership of "The Far Side."

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

    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

    A standard that may be used as a guide for persons making independent examinations of nuclear materials statements or reports regarding inventory quantities on hand, receipts, production, shipment, losses, etc. is presented. The objective of the examination of nuclear materials statements by the independent auditor is the expression of an opinion on the fairness with which the statements present the nuclear materials position of a nuclear materials facility and the movement of such inventory materials for the period under review. The opinion is based upon an examination made in accordance with auditing criteria, including an evaluation of internal control, a test of recorded transactions, and a review of measured discards and materials unaccounted for (MUF). The standard draws heavily upon financial auditing standards and procedures published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants

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

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

    Full Text Available The Internet has dramatically expanded citizens' access to and ability to engage with political information. On many websites, any user can contribute and edit "crowd-sourced" information about important political figures. One of the most prominent examples of crowd-sourced information on the Internet is Wikipedia, a free and open encyclopedia created and edited entirely by users, and one of the world's most accessed websites. While previous studies of crowd-sourced information platforms have found them to be accurate, few have considered biases in what kinds of information are included. We report the results of four randomized field experiments that sought to explore what biases exist in the political articles of this collaborative website. By randomly assigning factually true but either positive or negative and cited or uncited information to the Wikipedia pages of U.S. senators, we uncover substantial evidence of an editorial bias toward positivity on Wikipedia: Negative facts are 36% more likely to be removed by Wikipedia editors than positive facts within 12 hours and 29% more likely within 3 days. Although citations substantially increase an edit's survival time, the editorial bias toward positivity is not eliminated by inclusion of a citation. We replicate this study on the Wikipedia pages of deceased as well as recently retired but living senators and find no evidence of an editorial bias in either. Our results demonstrate that crowd-sourced information is subject to an editorial bias that favors the politically active.

Os dossiês são constituídos espontaneamente a partir das colaborações enviadas e aprovadas ou, em outras ocasiões, pré-propostos, sendo alguns autores convidados e outros provenientes dos processos de seleção por parecer. Nesta edição, por exemplo, o dossiê "Cinema em caos contemporâneo" foi construído não só com vários artigos aprovados pelos pareceristas mas também com a reunião de alguns textos provenientes do ciclo "Entendendo o século XXI através do cinema", realizado no Centro Cultural da Companhia Paulista de Força e Luz (CPFL, pelo departamento de Cinema (Decine da Unicamp, com curadoria de Fernão Ramos.

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

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

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

    2009-01-01

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

  16. Editorial on Future Jet Technologies

    2014-12-01

    The jet engine is the prime flight controller in post-stall flight domains where conventional flight control fails, or when the engine prevents catastrophes in training, combat, loss of all airframe hydraulics (the engine retains its own hydraulics), loss of one engine, pilot errors, icing on the wings, landing gear and runway issues in takeoff and landing and in bad-whether recoveries. The scientific term for this revolutionary technology is "jet-steering", and in engineering practice - "thrust vectoring", or "TV". Jet-Steering in advanced fighter aircraft designs is integrated with stealth technology. The resulting classified Thrust-Vectoring-Stealth ("TVS") technology has generated a second jet-revolution by which all Air-&-Sea-Propulsion Science and R&D are now being reassessed. Classified F-22, X-47B/C and RQ-180 TVS-vehicles stand at the front of this revolution. But recent transfers of such sensitive technologies to South Korea and Japan [1-5], have raised various fundamental issues that are evaluated by this editorial-review. One, and perhaps a key conclusion presented here, means that both South Korea and Japan may have missed one of their air-&-sea defenses: To develop and field low-cost unmanned fleets of jet-drones, some for use with expensive, TVS-fighter aircraft in highly congested areas. In turn, the U.S., EU, Russia and China, are currently developing such fleets at various TVS levels and sizes. China, for instance, operates at least 15,000 drones ("UAVs") by 2014 in the civilian sector alone. All Chinese drones have been developed by at least 230 developers/manufacturers [1-16]. Mobile telecommunication of safe links between flyers and combat drones ("UCAVs") at increasingly deep penetrations into remote, congested areas, can gradually be purchased-developed-deployed and then operated by extant cader of tens of thousands "National Champion Flyers" who have already mastered the operation of mini-drones in free-to-all sport clubs under national

    Full Text Available Applied linguists paying scholarly attention to newspaper genres have often argued that findings emerging from such studies would be of pedagogical significance because most of the newspaper genres share certain conventional features with school genres. Similarly, this study explored lexical cohesion in newspaper editorials, and it is understood that the findings could help learners in handling persuasive writings. The study sought to identify the dominant sources of lexical cohesion in the editorials, and also to examine how lexical cohesion is utilized to achieve coherence in the editorials. Drawing on Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL, the study applied Eggins’ (2004 model of lexical cohesion and analyzed 30 editorial texts of 20, 354 words drawn from three major Nigerian newspapers: The Guardian, The Nation, and Vanguard. The analysis revealed 2, 685 ties across 849 sentences. The data demonstrated that the major types of lexical cohesion in the editorials include: repetition (49.5%, expectancy relations (15. 8%, class/sub-class (11%, and synonymy (10.8%. It was further revealed that lexical cohesion devices, which formed into chains (586 and isolated ties (837, were utilized in building coherence in the editorial texts. It was finally shown how findings of the study could be beneficial in ESP, EAP, and EGP learning, especially in persuasive writings.

    Imitating nature's mechanisms offers enormous potential for the improvement of our lives and the tools we use. This field of the study and imitation of, and inspiration from, nature's methods, designs and processes is known as biomimetics. Artificial muscles, i.e. electroactive polymers (EAPs), are one of the emerging technologies enabling biomimetics. Polymers that can be stimulated to change shape or size have been known for many years. The activation mechanisms of such polymers include electrical, chemical, pneumatic, optical and magnetic. Electrical excitation is one of the most attractive stimulators able to produce elastic deformation in polymers. The convenience and practicality of electrical stimulation and the continual improvement in capabilities make EAP materials some of the most attractive among activatable polymers (Bar-Cohen Y (ed) 2004 Electroactive Polymer (EAP) Actuators as Artificial Muscles—Reality, Potential and Challenges 2nd edn, vol PM136 (Bellingham, WA: SPIE Press) pp 1-765). As polymers, EAP materials offer many appealing characteristics that include low weight, fracture tolerance and pliability. Furthermore, they can be configured into almost any conceivable shape and their properties can be tailored to suit a broad range of requirements. These capabilities and the significant change of shape or size under electrical stimulation while being able to endure many cycles of actuation are inspiring many potential possibilities for EAP materials among engineers and scientists in many different disciplines. Practitioners in biomimetics are particularly excited about these materials since they can be used to mimic the movements of animals and insects. Potentially, mechanisms actuated by EAPs will enable engineers to create devices previously imaginable only in science fiction. For many years EAP materials received relatively little attention due to their poor actuation capability and the small number of available materials. In the last fifteen

    Full Text Available In January this year, we were confronted with a case of plagiarism. One paper that had been submitted last year by a certain person turned out to be written by three other persons. It was presented by the three true authors at a conference in 2010, where they distributed copies of their paper. One of the reviewers of the paper informed us about that fact. We asked the three authors for a copy, which turned out to be identical with the submission, except for a few minor details. When confronted with these facts, the person who had submitted the paper was unable to give us a satisfactory explanation. This is a case of serious scientific misconduct. The editors and the publisher of Demographic Research cannot and will not accept any form of plagiarism. Nor will we accept any other form of misconduct in science, including fabrication, falsification, or other practices that seriously deviate from those that are commonly accepted within the scientific community for proposing, conducting, or reporting research. With Long et al. ("Responding to possible plagiarism", Science 6 March 2009, we are of the opinion that the responsibility for research integrity ultimately lies in the hands of the scientific community: educators, students, authors, and those who provide peer reviews. Journal editors must take appropriate action and verify the originality of suspected manuscripts. The Office of Research Integrity provides useful guidelines (http://ori.dhhs.gov/. We have decided that any future submission to Demographic Research that lists the plagiarist as an author or co-author will be rejected automatically.

    Microwave moisture measurements refer to a methodology by which the water content of materials is non-invasively determined using electromagnetic fields of radio and microwave frequencies. Being the omnipresent liquid on our planet, water occurs as a component in most materials and often exercises a significant influence on their properties. Precise measurements of the water content are thus extremely useful in pure sciences, particularly in biochemistry and biophysics. They are likewise important in many agricultural, technical and industrial fields. Applications are broad and diverse, and include the quality assessment of foodstuffs, the determination of water content in paper, cardboard and textile production, the monitoring of moisture in sands, gravels, soils and constructions, as well as the measurement of water admixtures to coal and crude oil in reservoirs and in pipelines. Microwave moisture measurements and evaluations require insights in various disciplines, such as materials science, dielectrics, the physical chemistry of water, electrodynamics and microwave techniques. The cooperation of experts from the different fields of science is thus necessary for the efficient development of this complex discipline. In order to advance cooperation the Workshop on Electromagnetic Wave Interaction with Water and Moist Substances was held in 1993 in Atlanta. It initiated a series of international conferences, of which the last one was held in 2005 in Weimar. The meeting brought together 130 scientists and engineers from all over the world. This special issue presents a collection of some selected papers that were given at the event. The papers cover most topics of the conference, featuring dielectric properties of aqueous materials, electromagnetic wave interactions, measurement methods and sensors, and various applications. The special issue is dedicated to Dr Andrzej W Kraszewski, who died in July 2006 after a distinguished career of 48 years in the research of

    In this issue, we are delighted to publish the second in a series of articles under the banner of Perspectives. The series commenced in late 2008, when Udo Kaatze [1] published an article about the powerful technique of dielectric spectrometry for liquid measurements. In addition to examining the very wide frequency range from 10-6 Hz to 10-13 Hz, an outline of possible future developments was presented. Some challenging tasks for the future were briefly outlined. The format of the article was different to the usual style of a contributed paper or review article. Instead, it represented a short summary of recent work in the field and offered a viewpoint of an expert in the area. Its commentary noted several milestones that had been recently achieved, and then looked to the future. The Perspective format allowed the author to provide some opinion about the challenges of the future not normally permitted in a Topical Review. The journal now intends to publish several more Perspectives. For example, in this issue David Birch [2] presents a Perspective about another important measurement science, namely fluorescence detections and their future directions. These are based on an old technique which provided the basis for detecting the presence of molecular species. Successful research led to an understanding and description of the phenomenon of molecular fluorescence in terms of excited state energies, transitions, symmetries and rate parameters. More recently, using fluorescence as a probe, and with the exploitation of new technologies, new applications have included the study of protein, vision, photosynthesis, membranes and DNA. Indeed nowhere has fluorescence had more impact than in the biosciences. Once again, the intention of the Perspective article has been to highlight recent milestones within the field. Importantly, it also indicates some of the future challenges. Such Perspectives are an occasional series. They are not intended to deflect from the balance of

    Full Text Available There has been some acknowledgement in the published literature that reflection is a crucial element of the evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP model we have adopted (Booth 2004, 2006; Grant 2007; Helliwell 2007. As we work through a problem and try to incorporate the best available evidence into our decision making, reflection is required at several stages, including the very identification of the problem through to our assessment of the process itself and what we have learned in order to inform future practice. However, reflection and reflective writing have not fully been integrated into the process we espouse, and very little has been done to look more closely at this element of the model and how it can be integrated into professional learning.In a recently published research article, Sen (2010 confirms the relationship between reflection and several aspects of professional practice. These include critical review and decision making, two aspects that are tied closely to the evidence based process. Sen notes: Students were more likely to show evidence of learning, self‐development, the ability to review issues crucially, awareness of their own mental functions, ability to make decision [sic] and being empowered when they had mastered the art of reflective practice and the more deeply analytical reflective writing. (p.84 EBLIP (the journal tries to incorporate elements of reflection within the articles we publish. While we clearly believe in the need for our profession to do quality research and publish that research so that it can be accessible to practitioners, we also know that research cannot be looked at in isolation. Our evidence summaries are one way of reflecting critically on previously published research, and in the same vein, our classics bring older research studies back to the foreground. This work needs to continue to be discussed and looked at for its impact on our profession.More directly, the Using

    SKB has submitted RDandD Programme 2004 to SKI for review in accordance with the Act (1984:3) on Nuclear Activities. Based on SKI's review and the review statements received, SKI considers that: - SKB, and thereby the reactor owners, have fulfilled their obligations in accordance with paragraph 12 of the Act (1984:3) on Nuclear Activities, - Disposal in accordance with the KBS-3 concept seems to still be the most suitable way of disposing of spent nuclear fuel from the Swedish nuclear power programme. SKI would like to draw the Government's attention to the following evaluations and comments: - The question of who is responsible after the closure of a repository for spent nuclear fuel needs to be clarified. - SKB's plan of action is incomplete and its structure needs to be improved. The revised plan of action needs a more detailed account of the content of the basis for decision-making that SKB intends to present on different decision-making occasions. - As soon as possible, SKB should develop design premises for the canister and verify these premises in the next safety assessment which is planned for 2006. A clear and logical link between the detailed design premises for the canister and the requirements on long-term safety of the repository is still lacking. - SKB should specify the limits for different parameters that are of importance for the canister function. The account must be based on an identification of defects that can occur and their consequences for canister integrity and repository function. - SKB should clarify how the work on KBS-3H (horizontal deposition of the canisters) is to be developed. An estimate of how much time and resources will be required is needed in order to prepare a body of material corresponding to that for KBS-3V (vertical deposition which is, so far, the most studied concept). - SKB should continue to participate in and contribute to the development of methodology for safeguards in connection with the disposal process.

    Nanomanufacturing is an essential bridge between the discoveries of nanoscience and real-world nanotech products and is the vehicle by which the world will realize the promise of major technological innovation across a spectrum of products that will affect virtually every industrial sector. For micro and nanotech products to achieve the broad impacts envisioned, they must be manufactured in market-appropriate quantities in a reliable, repeatable, economical and commercially viable manner. In addition, they must be manufactured so that environmental and human health concerns are met, worker safety issues are appropriately assessed and handled, and liability issues are addressed. Critical to this realization of robust manufacturing at the nanoscale is the development of the necessary instrumentation, metrology and standards, i.e. nanometrology. The National Measurement Laboratories are committed to developing the required metrology. Integration of the instruments, their interoperability and appropriate information management are also critical elements that must be considered for viable micro and nanomanufacturing. Advanced instrumentation, metrology and standards will allow the physical dimensions, properties, functionality and purity of the materials, processes, tools, systems, products and emissions that will constitute micro and nanomanufacturing to be measured and characterized. This will in turn enable production to be scalable, controllable, predictable and repeatable to meet market needs. If a product cannot be measured it cannot be manufactured; if that product cannot be made safely it should not be manufactured, and finally, if the metrology is not in place how would you know? The articles in this special feature can be classified into three categories: dimensional metrology (8 papers and one technical design note), density of particles (2 papers) and metrology of thermal properties (3 papers). The articles on dimensional metrology include scanning probe

  9. What is Evidence? (editorial

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available Lately, I have been pondering what we really mean when we say “evidence based practice”? In LIS, we all know the definitions that have been proposed (Booth 2000, Eldredge 2000, Crumley and Koufogiannakis 2002, and which have not ever really been challenged. But have we ever said explicitly what qualifies as evidence in this model? The underlying assumption seems to be that evidence is research, hence, we are really talking about research-based practice, but we don’t actually use that term.Higgs and Jones (2000 note that evidence is “knowledge derived from a variety of sources that has been subjected to testing and has found to be credible.” The Oxford English Dictionary states that evidence is “something serving as a proof” (OED, 2011. Neither of these definitions of evidence notes that evidence equals research; research is only one form of evidence. It certainly isn’t the only form of evidence – so what, then, constitutes evidence?Rycroff-Malone et al. (2004 state that that in order for evidence based practice to create a broader evidence base in nursing, “the external, scientific and the internal, intuitive” need to be brought together. The external, scientific is what evidence based practice has been focused on, in the form of scientific research, but Rycroff-Malone et al. note that other elements such as clinical experience, patient experience, and information from the local context also need to be considered.In library and information practice, what are the other forms of evidence we need to consider? I propose that while research evidence is of high importance to our profession and knowledge, LIS practitioners need to first of all consider local evidence. Local evidence is found in our working environment and specific to the context in which we carry out our work. It includes such things as our experiences with patrons in particular contexts, and what we observe to work in such situations, assessment of programs

    Blue or ultraviolet semiconducting light-emitting diodes have the potential to revolutionize illumination systems in the near-future. Such industrial need has propelled the investigation of several wide-gap semiconducting materials in recent years. Commercial applications include blue lasers for DVD memory and laser printers, while military applications are also expected. Most of the material development has so far been focused on GaN (band gap 3.5 eV at 2 K), and ZnSe (2.9 eV) because these two representative direct transition semiconductors are known to be bright emitting sources. GaN and GaN-based alloys are emerging as the winners in this field because ZnSe is subject to defect formation under high current drive. On the other hand, another II-VI compound, ZnO, has also excited substantial interest in the optoelectronics-oriented research communities because it is the brightest emitter of all, owing to the fact that its excitons have a 60 meV binding energy. This is compared with 26 meV for GaN and 20 meV for ZnSe. The stable excitons could lead to laser action based on their recombination even at temperatures well above room temperature. ZnO has additional major properties that are more advantageous than other wide-gap materials: availability of large area substrates, higher energy radiation stability, environmentally-friendly ingredients, and amenability to wet chemical etching. However, ZnO is not new to the semiconductor field as exemplified by several studies made during the 1960s on structural, vibrational, optical and electrical properties (Mollwo E 1982 Landolt-Boernstein New Series vol 17 (Berlin: Springer) p 35). In terms of devices, the luminescence from light-emitting diode structures was demonstrated in which Cu2O was used as the p-type material (Drapak I T 1968 Semiconductors 2 624). The main obstacle to the development of ZnO has been the lack of reproducible p-type ZnO. The possibility of achieving epitaxial p-type layers with the aid of thermal

    Full Text Available From educational gaming through portable e-readers to cell phones, media are interpenetrating educational spaces and activities. Accordingly, understanding media in environmental or ecological terms has become increasingly important for education internationally. In North America, for example, the centenary of McLuhan’s birth has focused attention on approaches to media – whether oral, textual, electronic or digital– as a kind of environment in which education takes place. In parts of Europe, the so-called mediatic turn – following on the linguistic and iconic turns – has similarly emphasized the role of media as a condition for the possibility of educational activities and programs. With a few exceptions1 the papers in this special issue were first presented at the conference «Educational Media Ecologies: International Perspectives» which took place at the University of Paderborn, Germany, on March 27–28, 2012.2 The event was an interdisciplinary and transatlantic endeavor to bring together a wide range of perspectives on various issues relevant to educational media ecologies,3 and on related debates on mediation, medialization, mediatization, and mediality.4 The purpose of this volume, like the conference, is to foster and deepen international dialogue in the area of educational media. Areas of research and scholarship relevant to this dialogue include educational media, media literacy, educational philosophy, and media and cultural studies. The contributions, described below, put conceptual issues as well as social practices and applications at the center of the debate. Klaus Rummler opens the issue by clarifying the concept of ecology itself. Referencing a range of work over the past 50 years, Rummler describes how ecological models have been cast in sociological, semiotic, cultural, mediatic and other terms, and he explains the implications of these various perspectives for the study of educational contexts.

    addressed within the issue is how much conventional power production can be replaced by the ceaseless wind, with the question of how Greece's target of 29% renewables by 2020 is to be met efficiently. Other topics include an innovative way to determine the power curve of a turbine experimentally more accurately, the use of fluid dynamics tools to investigate the implications of placing vortex generators on wind turbine blades (thereby possibly improving their efficiency) and a study of the perception of wind turbine noise. It turns out that a small but significant fraction of wind turbine neighbours feel that turbine generated noise impairs their ability to rest. The annoyance is correlated with a negative attitude towards the visual impact on the landscape, but what is cause and effect is too early to say. As mentioned there is a rush for wind turbines in many countries. However, this positive development for the global climate is currently limited by practical barriers. One bottleneck is the difficulties for the sub-suppliers of gears and other parts to meet the demand. Another is the difficulties to meet the demand for engineers specialized in wind. For that reason the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) recently launched the world's first Wind Energy Masters Program. Here and elsewhere in the world of wind education and research we should really speed up now, as our chances of contributing to emission free energy production and a healthier global climate have never been better.

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

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

    Si la mobilité sociale ou professionnelle implique un qualificatif pour connaître son objet, quand il s’agit de mobilité spatiale, et ce numéro d’EPS traite essentiellement de ce cas, le qualificatif est superflu. La mobilité spatiale est la mobilité par défaut entre un point de départ et un point d’arrivée. Entre les deux, elle implique une chaîne du déplacement qui, d’après l’article 45 de la loi n° 2005-102 du 11 février 2005 pour l'égalité des droits et des chances, la participation et la...

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

    Full Text Available The genesis of the Society of South Asia Archaeology (SOSAA lies in the fact that over the years many scholars have suggested the need for a dedicated platform where young archaeologists can present their research and views openly without fear and reproach. It was also suggested that this forum should be structured in a manner that permits extended discussion beyond the usual question and answer session. It was further decided to create a society that would deal with the archaeology, anthropology, history, and ethnography of Asia in general and South Asia in particular.

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Full Text Available Esta edição termina o quarto ano de vida da revista Linguamática.  O ano foi composto por uma edição especial, relativa a uma avaliação conjunta, o Págico, e esta edição convencional. Sentimo-nos bastante satisfeitos por conseguir nestes tempos manter a revista viva, mesmo que com relativa dificuldade.

    A verdade é que cada vez mais investigadores e docentes do ensino superior são avaliados não pela qualidade da sua investigação ou dos resultados obtidos, mas por uma classificação das conferências e revistas.

    Embora a Linguamática já se encontre indexada em vários índices, como o Latindex, não se encontra nos índices habitualmente usados, como o DBLP, ISI Web of Knowledge ou SCOPUS.

    Será muito complicado conseguir que a Linguamática seja considerada para qualquer um destes índices, especialmente pela língua usada não ser o inglês. No entanto, mudar a política da Linguamática para a publicação em inglês é impensável, já que iria contra os princípios que levaram à sua criação. No entanto, pareceu-nos que a inclusão de um resumo e um conjunto de palavras chave em inglês para cada artigo seria uma concessão aceitável.

    Sabemos que para conseguir este tipo de indexação também é importante a quantidade de citações de artigos publicados na revista. Outras revistas obrigam a que os artigos submetidos incluam citações para artigos da própria revista. Não nos parece que este tipo de obrigação seja decente, mas não podemos de deixar de pedir aos leitores e autores da Linguamática para, sempre que se adeque, façam citações a artigos publicados na revista.

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

El primer componente de este tríangulo, lo describen perfectamente dos de los consejeros Fundadores de la Universidad EAN: el Dr. Hildebrando Perico, cuando afirma que “el emprendimiento o la capacidad empresarial, no es otra que la fuerza espiritual impulsora para que las cosas se hagan y los acontecimientos se sucedan, según los presupuestos estratégicos que de orden social, económico y político se deseen alcanzar, por otra parte, en un medio cada vez más interdependiente en sus intereses; en palabras del Dr. Carlos Ramirez Cardona, el emprendimiento “está determinado por las personas que se distinguen como emprendedoras: empresarios e intraempresarios. El empresario es quien tiene el valor de crear, organizar y poner en marcha una empresa. Es una persona de iniciativa que crea y fomenta la creación de empresas propias. El intraempresario es esa persona que cuando trabaja en empresas ya existentes contribuye a su innovación, desarrollo y productividad”. Hoy en día, el primer tipo de emprendimiento (hacer empresa se debe llevar a la realidad de muchas maneras: Por medio de alianzas estratégicas, franquicias, asociatividad, buscando oportunidades de negocio en las cadenas productivas, buscando ángeles inversionistas que patrocinen y se vuelvan socios de un plan de negocios; utilizando incubadoras de empresas, aprovechando las oportunidades de diferentes formas de financiamiento, entre otras. En el caso del intraempresariado, la generación de valores agregados, son el centro de acción.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Full Text Available Normalmente para las esferas gubernamentales, las áreas de política económica y social son las encargadas de tomar las decisiones de fondo sobre temas que tienen impacto social y simplementelas comunican a las áreas de la ciencia, limitando la participación científica en los procesos de toma de decisiones. Por lo tanto, los científicos tienen escasa presencia en decisiones cruciales sobretemas como por ejemplo política de desarrollo social, interés por áreas específicas de ciencia y tecnología, políticas públicas de interés para la población, y otras donde probablemente el desarrollode la ciencia tendría profundos impactos en la solución de los problemas sociales de la nación. De manera que en las estructuras estatales venezolana, la política científica ha operado como un áreacarente de participación y autonomía, en relación con variables críticas necesarias para alcanzar los objetivos del desarrollo económico y social. Siempre ha estado supeditada a otras instancias dedecisión que con frecuencia ven la actividad científica y tecnológica como un hecho necesario, pero que su participación y desarrollo en el país puede ser postergado.Bajo esta visión del desarrollo social, es que el gobierno nacional transformó al Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología en el Ministerio del Poder Popular para Ciencia, Tecnología e Industrias Intermedias, haciendo hincapié en los procesos de desarrollo industrial como órgano de vinculación entre los agentes del desarrollo productivo y las instituciones del Estado. Bajo estas condiciones depaís, la política científica se desarrolla en un marco de subordinación y de aislamiento, que hace delhecho científico nacional una estructura débil, propia de una visión de modelo de país en donde elaporte de la investigación científica y tecnológica a la solución de los problemas sociales es un derivado"residual" de otras políticas.Pero no sólo la conversión del ministerio a otros intereses distintos a los de la ciencia y tecnologíahan sido los únicos cambios que han afectado el desarrollo científico que venía desarrollándoseen los últimos 20 años, sino que programas de estímulos a los investigadores se han desactivadopara dar paso a una inercia estéril de investigación, tal es el caso del Programa de Promoción alInvestigador que debido a la falta de objetivos y claridad en su aplicación será sustituido por elPrograma de Promoción a la Investigación, tal como lo expresa el portal del Observatorio Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación –ONCTI-. De ahora en adelante, pareciera que el estímulo queantes se otorgaba a los investigadores, se canalizará a la investigación. Y eso, no será suficiente paraimpulsar la investigación, si tomamos en cuenta el factor de desmotivación reinante actualmenteentre los investigadores, manifestado en la disminución de trabajos que se reciben en las revistascientíficas, luego de la desactivación del Programa de Promoción al Investigador.El desarrollo científico tiene sus propios canales de difusión de conocimiento y las revistascientíficas han sido por mucho tiempo el canal natural de transmisión de resultados. La informacióncientífica, en el sentido de comunicación de conocimiento, es un atributo que la ciencia explota; porello, las sociedades, en general, disponen de sistemas propios de comunicación científica, unos másrudimentarios, otros gradualmente más sofisticados.En el caso venezolano, las revistas científicas conforman un sistema de comunicación de conocimientoavalado por el Fondo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología –FONACIT- y, donde Enl@ce esparte de ese acervo científico nacional; así lo ha reconocido al acreditarla desde el año 2007 comorevista científica venezolana. Pero también la Universidad del Zulia, hace esfuerzos por mantenerlos canales de comunicación científica. Por ello, recientemente se inauguró el portal del Registrode revista de Ciencia y Tecnología de LUZ (ReviCyHLUZ bajo la responsabilidad del Servicio deBibliotecas de la Universidad del Zulia (SERBILUZ. Este portal desarrollado bajo la política delsistema Open Journal Systems posibilita que las revistas pertenecientes a la Universidad del Zuliatengan su propio sitio de difusión científica. De manera que los interesados en obtener los trabajospublicados en Enl@ce, pueden consultarlos y descargarlos gratuitamente en la dirección electrónica:http://revistas.luz.edu.ve/index.php/enlace/indexEnl@ce se fortalece con esta iniciativa de la Universidad del Zulia, porque su difusión se ve incrementada al tener un portal propio, a la vez que seguirá ofreciendo los trabajos en los sitioscomo DIALNET, REDALYC, DOAJ, que son aliados fraternos de Enl@ce.

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

    Full Text Available En desafortunada coincidencia con una nueva serie de actos de agitación interna y de hechos externos que por tener que ver negativamente con la Universidad Nacional son mucho más alarmantes, sale a circulación el tercer número de nuestra revista INGENIERIA E INVESTIGACION, órgano de divulgación de la Facultad de Ingeniería y con el cual mostramos a la comunidad universitaria y a la opinión Pública en general que la vida académica y el espíritu  científico siguen su derrotero no obstante la anarquía y el amedrantamiento con que una minoría violenta, enquistada en el mismo ámbito universitario, trata de imponer los oscuros designios de mentes o ideologías extrañas a la Universidad, quizás sin entender o sin querer entender que con estas actitudes sólo han logrado el desprestigio de la institución y el paulatino deterioro de la misma.

    Full Text Available El proceso de globalización exige que el mundo en general y Colombia en particular sigan eliminando los obstáculos que se oponen al libre comercio. Por ello, durante los últimos años, nuestra economía en el contexto de la Organización Mundial del Comercio –OMC- y mediante tratados multilaterales o bilaterales, ha firmado la participación o ha suscrito la pertenencia a la Asociación Latinoamericana de Integración -ALADI-, a la Comunidad Andina de Naciones –CAN-, al Acuerdo CAN-MERCOSUR, al Tratado G3 –México, Venezuela y Colombia- y a la Asociación de Estados del Caribe -AEC-. Igualmente participa en el proceso de creación del Área de Libre Comercio de las Américas –ALCAy ha otorgado y recibido preferencias comerciales de SPG Andino-Unión Europea, entre otros. El aparato productivo colombiano se enfrentará en este contexto global, en forma creciente e ineludible a la ardua competencia de los fabricantes de bienes y de los oferentes de servicios de casi todos los países del mundo. Estas ofertas llegan al país en forma altamente competitiva, con muy bajos precios resultantes en no pocos casos, de escalas de producción elevadas y con calidad y oportunidad de entrega, excelentes. De esta forma, no hay otra ruta exitosa, no hay otra forma adecuada de insertarse en este mundo global, que aumentar rápida y decididamente la competitividad y la productividad de nuestro aparato productivo.

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

    Full Text Available Since the first issue of the Bulletin of the History of Archaeology appeared in May of 1991 (volume 1, number 1, the Editor has received correspondence from subscribers and other interested readers concerning the amount of space available in each issue for papers as well as for other contributions. Some have argued that paper submissions should be peer reviewed and that authors of books or journal articles reviewed in an issue should be contacted in order to afford the opportunity to "reply" to the review. Many have suggested that the Bulleting "evolve" into a journal.

    The Tenth International Conference on Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS-10) was held from 5-10 September 2005 at the University of California, Berkeley campus. The conference attracted 305 attendees from 26 countries who gave 144 platform presentations and presented a total of 170 posters. The conference opened with a special tribute to the late Roy Middleton, which was followed by a companion session on "ion sourcery". A plenary talk by Wally Broecker on his "53 years in the Radiocarbon Trenches" provided thought-provoking challenges to commonly accepted paradigms. A workshop on issues in the estimation of isotopic ratios and evaluations of activities from AMS measurements preceded the conference and a workshop on AMS in low-dose bioscience concluded it.

    Full Text Available Climate change, sustainability, diversity, financial probity, gender and governance are profound and complex challenges facing local government today, and are all topics raised by the researchers and practitioners contributing to CJLG Issue 10. Cash-strapped local governments are required to deliver core services (‘roads, rates and rubbish’ as Heather Zeppel’s interviewee said, yet are increasingly required to embrace broad social inclusion and environmental concerns, as our contributors show. The five research papers in this issue touch at the heart of equity and democratic governance. The role of critical theory in delivering good practice is explored by Eris Schoburgh in her reflection on local government and local development, and her comparison of Trinidad & Tobago’s structured decentralisation and Jamaica’s communitarian approach. She dismisses the ‘leading laggard’ model where linked settlement economies sink or swim together, and the ‘learning region’ which maximise local synergies to promote economic growth, to propose a new ‘hybrid model’ of local growth that tackles on-going issues such as gender equality, the informal economy and the local commons.
