    It is fitting, then, that the contributors to this volume approach Research across the disciplines book from a wide range of perspectives, with equally wide-ranging assumptions about the nature of teaching, learning, and research. One primary such concern is that despite our varying epistemologies about learning and research traditions, our assumptions often remain unstated in our SoTL work, leaving our findings wide open to critique and misinterpretation. As you collect your sources, write short summaries of each of them. The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this book This book collects multiple disciplinary voices which explore current research and perspectives to discuss how spirituality is understood, interpreted and applied in a range of contexts. Who are the intended audience of these publications? This prospective publication promises to promote a more holistic approach to the study of spirituality.

    In a New Scientist article published in JanuaryPhilip Cohen writes that in the future scientists are likely to establish human cloning techniques. For example, different academic disciplines require researchers to use different research methods and techniques. Figure H-index compared with the Individual h-index for different disciplines Contemporary h-index The Hc-index corrects for the recentness of the citations, with recent citations carrying more weight. The chapter sets a political tone for the book, which few of the remaining chapters pick up so eloquently or passionately.

Terminology[ edit ] Also known as a field of study, field of inquiry, research field and branch of knowledge. As is apparent from Figure 5, for four of our five academics working in the Sciences, there is virtually no difference between their citation records in the two different types of ISI searches. The opening and closing chapters serve as book ends that keep the whole volume together. However, there seems to be a general lack of understanding of how different data sources and citation metrics might impact on comparisons between disciplines.

Introduced by Google inGoogle Scholar has become a very popular alternative data source, not least through the fact that access is free and citation analysis programs such as Publish or Perish make bibliometric analysis easy.

This paper has established that with the correct benchmarks academics in the Social Sciences and Humanities Research across the disciplines book at least as well, if not better, than academics in the Sciences. However, the average Hi-norm for the two groups is virtually identical: 17 for the Sciences and 18 for the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Discuss your results with your classmates and your instructor, or prepare a formal paper reporting and analyzing the results of your research. Identify times of paradigm shift for your subject. That is where the conference comes in.

To an untrained eye it may seem that all scientists and other researchers do is explain and describe reality which is unchangeable and stable. To you as a student, it may seem that when you read textbooks and other professional literature in your major or other classes you are taking, you are taking in permanent and stable truths.

External sources are useful learning and argument tools, but it is still you who does the learning and the arguing. Instead, the knowledge-making process in modern society is a collaborative, effort to which many parties contribute.

Does your community or group produce any written documents?

What is the purpose of those documents, their intended audience, and the language that they use? Conclusions As a college student, you are probably taking four, five, or even six classes simultaneously.

As persuasive and rhetorical mechanisms, reading and writing are supposed to reach between people and groups.

Differences between the Sciences and the Social Sciences and Humanities are smaller for the Hc-index 17 versus 16 than for the h-index 28 versus Writing and reading are interactive, social processes.

The theory of knowledge-making which I am talking about was proposed by Thomas Kuhn in his much-cited book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions.

Disciplinary designations originated in German universities during the beginning of the nineteenth century. Publication patterns in the Social Sciences and Humanities Research across the disciplines book a heavy emphasis on books and many of the journals in these fields are not listed in either ISI or Scopus.

As before, the Computer Scientist is the exception to this rule. A final chapter provides an analytical discussion of the different voices that appear in the book and offers a holistic description of spirituality which has the potential to bring some unity to the meaning, expression and practice of spirituality across a variety of disciplines as well as across cultural, religious and secular worldviews.

While working within an established paradigm, all members of an intellectual Research across the disciplines book have the same assumptions about what they study and discuss, use the same research methods and approaches, and use the same methods to present and compare the results of their investigation.

On the one hand, we try to learn to become better writers. Academics in the Social Sciences and Humanities out-perform academics in the Sciences when using a more comprehensive data-source and correcting for career stage and the number of co-authors.

There are many performance differences even within the same discipline. In the former case, academics in the Sciences on average have 17 times as many citations as the academics in the Social Sciences and Humanities, whilst in the latter case this is reduced to 5 times as many citations.

Foucault asserts that academic disciplines originate from the same social movements and mechanisms of control that established the modern prison and penal system in eighteenth-century Franceand that this fact reveals essential aspects they continue to have in common: "The disciplines characterize, classify, specialize; they distribute along a scale, around a norm, hierarchize individuals in relation to one another and, if necessary, disqualify and invalidate.

Changes in scientific paradigms happen, according to Kuhn, when scientists begin to observe unusual phenomena or unexpected results in their research. You may wish to talk to one of the teachers whose classes you are currently taking.Get this from a library!
