A guide to the technologies, methods, and materials that can help writers of research papers.
Assisted by Becker´s sage advice, students can make better sense of their research and simultaneously generate fresh ideas on where to look next for new data. The tricks cover four broad areas of social science: the creation of ´´imagery´´ to guide research; methods of ´´sampling´´ to generate maximum variety in the data; the development of ´´concepts´´ to organize findings; and the use of ´´logical´´ methods to explore systematically the implications of what is found. 5 tables.
The research presented in this book explores how expatriate researchers who completed a doctorate abroad evaluate and articulate their experience of academic mobility with regard to their early postdoctoral career and personal development. This study argues that expatriate researchers in social sciences embark on a doctoral study abroad without necessarily expecting any immediate career-related returns but are influenced by contextual factors, such as the opportunity structure and insecure employment conditions in the labour market for PhD graduates. The present research has not found any strong evidence showing that academic mobility directly brings immediate career-related returns. In addition, this research provides evidence of widespread agreement among expatriate researchers that the value of a doctoral degree from abroad is in gaining a meaningful personal experience resulting in personal development and skills acquisition, rather than directly resulting in career advancement. This finding contributes to the knowledge about the value of a doctoral study abroad on the individual level, suggested as an under-researched area by the scholarly literature in the field.
The POCKET GUIDE TO APA STYLE, 5E is an essential tool for writing research papers across the disciplines. Concise and thorough, the POCKET GUIDE offers straightforward explanations, annotated examples, and margin notes designed to help writers produce properly documented papers in the latest APA style. Not only less expensive and easier to use than the APA Manual, the POCKET GUIDE also includes extensive coverage of electronic sources, preparing writers to evaluate and use Internet references correctly in their research.
The single greatest guide to achieving success ever written, featuring a new foreword by Steve Harvey! Think and Grow Rich, first published in 1937, took more than twenty years of research to compile. Napoleon Hill was a journalist and writer who later served as an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933 to 1936. His big break came wi
This book will be helpful for researcher, academic and as well as farmers. A study was carried out to find out somaclonal variation along with induction in sugarcane through biotechnological approaches such as in vitro regeneration, acclimatization of the regenerates, mutation as well as somaclones development, screening for red rot resistant somaclones, characterization of induced somaclones using morphological tools, RAPD and SSR Markers.
The present investigation was carried out in Randomized Block Design with three replications at Instructional Farm, Department of Agronomy, College of Agriculture, JAU, Junagadh during summer and kharif 2016. A set of 20 F4 and its subsequent F5 segregating generations along with 8 parents of mungbean were utilized to estimate genetic variability, character association, path analysis and selection indices. The segregating F4 generations was obtained from Research Scientist (Chickpea), Pulses Research Station, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh. From the study of genetic variability, it can be concluded that there is a chance to select appropriate phenotype for higher seed yield. This can be done due to the ample variability present in the material studied which would be more rewarding for improvement of seed yield in mungbean. Study of character association and path analysis clearly indicated that the number of pods per plant was the most important yield contributing character. Number of clusters per plantand number of seeds per pod traits were of secondary important yield components.
An essential guide for succeeding in today´s competitive environment, this book provides beginning scientists and experienced researchers with practical advice on writing about their work and getting published. This brand new, updated edition also includes a new chapter on editing one´s own work, a section on publicizing and archiving one´s paper, and updates on authorship, including information on new authorship criteria and on the author identification number ORCID. The book guides readers through the processes involved in writing for and publishing in scientific journals, from choosing a suitable journal, to writing each part of the paper, to submitting the paper and responding to peer review, through checking the proofs. It covers ethical issues in scientific publishing, explains rights and permissions, and discusses writing grant proposals, giving presentations and writing for general audiences.
In the 21st century, there is a growing realisation that providing principals with the necessary opportunities of training in leadership and management skills has become increasingly important as a way to increase school effectiveness and achieve quality performance. Central to this argument is the fact that principals are merely accorded a status and role without the necessary training. To explore the state´s role in capacitating school principals, quantitative research methods approach were employed to collect data from 100 educators and 20 Head of Departments (HoDs). This was done through administration of questionnaires. While it is expected that principals should effectively and rigorously be developed to enable them to improve teaching and learning at their schools, it was found that training of school principals was elusive and ineffective, and as result, the majority of principals lack basic management training prior to and after their entry into principal ship. Apart from being faced with various challenges and being promoted to principal ship without the necessary leadership experience, principals rely on trial-and-error experience.
The information in this book is relevant to the international communities, industry, academia and government. The objectives are to investigate the role, responsibilities and qualities of university and industry staff for facilitating support for learners. This research revealed that a large percentage of employers suggested that lack of learner support can contribute to student failure. Also, WIL Co-ordinators need to be capacitated as the majority of respondents indicated that training to facilitate WIL is extremely important (64%). 72 percent of the respondents indicated that the visits by the Co-operative Education Practitioners in workplaces are extremely important.
