Biological Science Disciplines
All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.
Critical and exhaustive investigation or experimentation, having for its aim the discovery of new facts and their correct interpretation, the revision of accepted conclusions, theories, or laws in the light of newly discovered facts, or the practical application of such new or revised conclusions, theories, or laws. (Webster, 3d ed)
Government Publications as Topic
Extensive collections, reputedly complete, of references and citations to books, articles, publications, etc., generally on a single subject or specialized subject area. Databases can operate through automated files, libraries, or computer disks. The concept should be differentiated from DATABASES, FACTUAL which is used for collections of data and facts apart from bibliographic references to them.

Health Services Research
The integration of epidemiologic, sociological, economic, and other analytic sciences in the study of health services. Health services research is usually concerned with relationships between need, demand, supply, use, and outcome of health services. The aim of the research is evaluation, particularly in terms of structure, process, output, and outcome. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism? (1/130)Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research. (+info)
How can statistical mechanics contribute to social science? (2/130)A model of interdependent decision making has been developed to understand group differences in socioeconomic behavior such as nonmarital fertility, school attendance, and drug use. The statistical mechanical structure of the model illustrates how the physical sciences contain useful tools for the study of socioeconomic phenomena. (+info)
How will we know "good" qualitative research when we see it? Beginning the dialogue in health services research. (3/130)OBJECTIVE: To lay the foundation for an explicit review and dialogue concerning the criteria that should be used to evaluate qualitative health services research. Clear criteria are critical for the discipline because they provide a benchmark against which research can be assessed. DATA SOURCES: Existing literature in the social sciences and health services research, particularly in primary care and medicine. PRINCIPAL FINDING: Traditional criteria for evaluating qualitative research are rooted in the philosophical perspective (positivism) most closely associated with quantitative research and methods. As a result, qualitative research and methods may not be used as frequently as they can be and research results generated from qualitative studies may not be disseminated as widely as possible. However, alternative criteria for evaluating qualitative research have been proposed that reflect a different philosophical perspective (post-positivism). Moreover, these criteria are tailored to the unique purposes for which qualitative research is used and the research designs traditionally employed. While criteria based on these two different philosophical perspectives have much in common, some important differences exist. CONCLUSION: The field of health services research must engage in a collective, "qualitative" process to determine which criteria to adopt (positivist or post-positivist), or whether some combination of the two is most appropriate. Greater clarity about the criteria used to evaluate qualitative research will strengthen the discipline by fostering a more appropriate and improved use of qualitative methods, a greater willingness to fund and publish "good" qualitative research, and the development of more informed consumers of qualitative research results.

Understanding life-style and food use: contributions from the social sciences. (4/130)The contribution of social sciences to the study of life-style and food use in Britain is illustrated by drawing on recent evidence of purchasing patterns, reports of the organisation of meals, snacks, eating out and images of the origins of food. Work discussed underlines a considerable degree of empirical complexity, demonstrates that the supply side as well as demand should be taken into account, and illustrates the manner in which even supposedly highly voluntaristic spheres of consumption activity may none the less be circumscribed. The article is prefaced by briefly contrasting the approach to 'life-style' adopted by market researchers, public health professionals and social theorists. It concludes with the proposal that in order to understand the complexity surrounding human food use, we may be advised to consider ensuring that the descriptive and conceptual tools being used can capture that complexity.

Toward an informatics research agenda: key people and organizational issues. (5/130)As we have advanced in medical informatics and created many impressive innovations, we also have learned that technologic developments are not sufficient to bring the value of computer and information technologies to health care systems. This paper proposes a model for improving how we develop and deploy information technology. The authors focus on trends in people, organizational, and social issues (POI/OSI), which are becoming more complex as both health care institutions and information technologies are changing rapidly. They outline key issues and suggest high-priority research areas. One dimension of the model concerns different organizational levels at which informatics applications are used. The other dimension draws on social science disciplines for their approaches to studying implications of POI/OSI in informatics. By drawing on a wide variety of research approaches and asking questions based in social science disciplines, the authors propose a research agenda for high-priority issues, so that the challenges they see ahead for informatics may be met better. (+info)
The utility of social capital in research on health determinants. (6/130)Social capital has become a popular subject in the literature on determinants of health. The concept of social capital has been used in the sociological, political science, and economic development literatures, as well as in the health inequalities literature. Analysis of its use in the health inequalities literature suggests that each theoretical tradition has conceptualized social capital differently. Health researchers have employed a wide range of social capital measures, borrowing from several theoretical traditions. Given the wide variation in these measures and an apparent lack of consistent theoretical or empirical justification for their use, conclusions about the likely role of "social capital" on population health may be overstated or even misleading. Elements of a research agenda are proposed to further elucidate the potential role of factors currently subsumed under the rubric of "social capital." (+info)
Occupational health and social resources. (7/130)There is a relationship between the changes in work-related diseases and the following factors: the transformation of the organization of work, organizational development, as well as human and social changes in the work environment. These factors also influence the maintenance of industrial health and safety standards at work. Safety technology will continue to be important, but will be reduced in significance compared to the so-called soft factors, that is, all dimensions and parameters affecting people's health and social environment at the work place. It seems that in the future the relationship between the social resource development and work protection will become more relevant. Social resource development influences the quality of work performance and motivation, the quality of work and work protection, the likelihood of accidents and breakdowns, and the level of self-control and capacity of change. The consequences of work protection research will be discussed in this article with a focus on the contribution of social sciences. (+info)
Attitudes of Hungarian students and nurses to physician assisted suicide. (8/130)In Hungary, which has one of the highest rates of suicide in the world, physician assisted suicide (PAS) and euthanasia are punishable criminal acts. Attitudes towards self destruction and assisted suicide are, however, very controversial. We investigated the attitudes of medical students, nurses and social science students in Hungary towards PAS, using a twelve item scale: the total number of participants was 242. Our results indicate a particular and controversial relationship between attitudes towards assisted suicide in Hungary and experience with terminally ill people. The social science students, who had the fewest personal experiences with terminally ill patients, are characterised by the most permissive attitudes towards assisted suicide. Nurses, who had everyday contact and experience with these patients, were the most conservative, being least supportive of assisted suicide. The attitudes of medical students, the would be physicians, are somewhere between those of nurses and social science students. (+info)
NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Re...
When the United States Congress created the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health, it mandated that the Office develop a standard definition of the field to assess and monitor funding in this area. This definition of health-related behavioral and social sciences research was developed in 1996 in consultation with behavioral and social scientists and science organizations, and benefited from the leadership of OBSSRs founding director,Dr. Norman B. Anderson. This definition divides behavioral and social sciences research into two sections: Core Areas of Research, and Adjunct Areas of Research. The core areas of research are further divided into basic or fundamental research and applied research. Adjunct areas of behavioral and social sciences research include many types of neurological research and some research on pharmacological interventions--areas that have implications for, and are often influenced by, behavioral research. | Bounded

Obstacles to the Use of Social Science Analysis in Water Decision-Making, or Wheres the Demand for Social Science Input?
Obstacles to the Use of Social Science Analysis in Water Decision-Making, or Wheres the Demand for Social Science Input?. The paper identifies characteristics of both the public decisionmaking process and the methods of social science research that result in social science inputs having little influence on policy decisions. There are cognitive obstacles to the use of social science inputs; decisionmakers have trouble dealing with compound uncertainties that are left from engineering and social analyses; the adversarial climate reduces the receptivity to objective social science inputs. On the other hand, some of the weakness of the demand for social science input is due to the practices and behavior of social scientists themselves. At the cross-disciplinary level are opportunities in reducing adversarial decision processes, devising alternative institutional arrangements, interactive decision support technologies, and others.
Issue 5 (March 8)
As part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) strategic planning process to update its 2007 strategic plan for fiscal years (FY) 2016-2020, the Office plans to reconsider NIHs definition of behavioral and social sciences (BSSR). In his recent OBSSR Connector blog post, OBSSR Director William Riley explained that the office is Congressionally mandated to define behavioral and social sciences research to assess and monitor NIH funding. As a consequence, the current definition resulted in a high level taxonomy of BSSR and delineates basic versus applied behavioral and social sciences research with a range of examples for each. Riley noted that in order to revise the current definition, NIH must acknowledge that there is no single discipline of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research; instead the field is a multidisciplinary set of sciences. The definition of these sciences are evidence that behavioral and social sciences cover ...

5. - Social sciences - Te Ara Encyclopedia of New Zealand
In the 2000s aspects of social science were taught in all of New Zealands universities, with many of the individual disciplines incorporated into wider schools of social science. The universities all taught psychology, but this generally remained in separate departments. Criminology was taught at Victoria, Canterbury and Auckland universities and Auckland University of Technology (AUT). Some academics expressed concern that combined schools of social science had less emphasis on teaching the theoretical basis of core subjects such as sociology.. The introduction of the Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF) in 2003 encouraged academics to publish more journal articles. Some critics argued this was largely aimed at overseas publication, adding little to greater understanding of New Zealand society and social change. In 2003 the government funded the BRCSS network (Building Research Capability in the Social Sciences), enhancing the social science research capability across the universities. ...

Social Science Quotations: Who Said What, When, and Where - Google Books
Social Science Quotations has been prepared to meet an evident, unmet need in the literature of the social sciences. Writings on the lives and theories of individual social scientists abound, but there has been no fully documented collection of memorable quotations from the social sciences as a whole. The frequent use of quotations in scientific as well as literary writings that are mere summaries or paraphrases typically fail to capture the full force of formulations that have made quotations memorable. This book of quotations invites the further reading or rereading of the original texts, beyond the quotations themselves.

Return to Meaning: A Social Science with Something to Say - Oxford Scholarship
This book argues that we are currently witnessing not merely a decline in the quality of social science research, but a proliferation of meaningless research of no value to society and modest value to its authors-apart from securing employment and promotion. The explosion of published outputs, at least in social science, creates a noisy, cluttered environment which makes meaningful research difficult, as different voices compete to capture the limelight even briefly. Older, but more impressive contributions are easily neglected as the premium is to write and publish, not read and learn. The result is a widespread cynicism among academics on the value of academic research, sometimes including their own. Publishing comes to be seen as a game of hits and misses, devoid of intrinsic meaning and value and of no wider social uses whatsoever. This is what the book views as the rise of nonsense in academic research, which represents a serious social problem. It undermines the very point of social science. This

Big Data and Machine Learning in Sociology | Frontiers Research Topic
The digital revolution and the resulting datafication of society have changed empirical social science research fundamentally. Enormous amounts of data can now be easily stored, managed and analyzed. Furthermore, the digital innovations of recent years allow the collection of data in various formats that were previously difficult to collect (e.g., georeferenced data, tracking or process data, intensive longitudinal data, social media text data). Finally, the increase in computational power as well as the maturation of software environments promoted the development of algorithmic solutions for complex statistical problems and prepared the way for the nascent field of computational social sciences at the intersection of social science research (sociology, economics, psychology, political science, criminology, communication studies etc.), statistics and informatics.Against this backdrop, the future viability of empirical sociology will depend on its ability to adapt to the conditions associated with the

Oslo Summer School in Comparative Social Science Studies - Faculty of Social Sciences
Jon Elster (b. 1940) is a philosopher. He studied in Oslo and Paris. He var a crucial organizer of the Pax publishing company in Oslo in the 1960s and 1970s, putting out several influential edited volumes and translations. At that time, he published extensively in Norwegian on questions of philosophy, history, social science, and economics. Since the mid 1970s he has published numerous articles and twelve books on the same matters in English. He became professor of political science at the University of Chicago, and later moved to become a professor of social science at Columbia University, New York.. Jon Elster has been a pioneer of rational choice theory, promoting this approach as the best general theory for all the social sciences. But he has also been concerned with the limits to rational choice theory, and in his latest writings he has been preoccupied with the specificities of explanations by mechanisms (as opposed to explanation by laws), and with the study of feelings.

Residential Age Stratification - Effects on Older Adults Well-Being | Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research
This project proposes that the age composition of neighborhoods is a key contributor to health and well-being in mid- and later life. This hypothesis is suggested in part by the increasing popularity of age-restricted retirement communities, which pose an interesting puzzle for the predictions of classic social scientific theories. Sociological theorists such as Matilda White Riley suggested that age segregation is detrimental to older persons productivity and social integration.

IRiSS Eye on the World: October 2006 Archives
NSF Grant: Jon Krosnick, principal investigator. Development of a Computer Network for Experimental and Non-Experimental Data Collection via the Internet from a Nationally Representative Sample of American Households. In recent years, we have seen two remarkable trends: (1) a sharp increase across the social sciences in the use of survey data to address a wide range of important theoretical issues involving the nature of contemporary social life and the workings of the human mind, and (2) a sharp increase in the fiscal costs of conducting high-quality surveys, coupled with a precipitous decline in the response rates of such surveys. The social sciences therefore need quick innovation in survey methodology to permit costeffective collection of accurate data from highly representative samples. This proposal seeks funds to build a tool for data collection for social scientists that would bring a new standard of accuracy to the data, broader accessibility for social scientists at reduced cost, ...

Cold War Social Science: Knowledge Production, Liberal Democracy, and Human Nature. Mark Solovey and Hamilton Cravens, eds.. Palgrave Macmillan, 2012. From World War II to the early 1970s, American social science research expanded in dramatic and unprecedented fashion. This volume offers fascinating perspectives on the rise of U.S. practitioners as global leaders in the field, exploring how, why, and with what consequences this rapid and yet contested expansion depended on the entanglement of the social sciences with Cold War politics. Utilizing the controversial but useful concept of Cold War social science, the histories gathered here reveal how scholars from established disciplines and new interdisciplinary fields of study made important contributions to long-standing debates about knowledge production, liberal democracy, and human nature.. ...
Framing Deception and Covertness in Research: Do Milgram, Humphreys, and Zimbardo Justify Regulating Social Science...
No systematic assessment exists that justifies the extension of ethics regulations to non-experimental social science research. Instead, three studies-by MILGRAM, HUMPHREYS, and ZIMBARDO-are repeatedly cited to support such regulation, based on their use of deception and/or covertness. Challenging such regulation requires these studies detailed re-examination. In this article we offer a critique of deception and covert research as understood solely within the context of experimentation: that framing of those research activities has narrowed their consideration in ways that do a disservice to social science research (as comparison with studies by ROSENHAN and LEO further clarifies). We show that, controversial as they may have been, these projects met a key ethics principle: beneficence, something ignored by most of the critics assessing their work. Theorizing deception and covertness, we establish distinctions between them and argue for the importance of their use in studies of powerful ...

Curricular Opportunities and Constraints: The Incorporation of the Humanities and Social Sciences into Contemporary U.S....
Author(s): Olsen, Lauren Dana | Advisor(s): Evans, John H | Abstract: Drawing upon 90 in-depth interviews with medical educators and students from humanities, social sciences, and biomedical backgrounds at 37 medical schools, curricular and institutional data from an exhaustive set of all 137 MD-granting institutions, and observational data from national pedagogical meetings on medical education, I present findings on four different strategies that educators employ for incorporating the humanities and social sciences. I call the first strategy of incorporation the foundational curriculum, where educators require all medical students to learn how the critical and interpretive concepts, theories, and methods that the humanities and social sciences offer are fundamental for their future clinical practice. In contrast, the second strategy of incorporation is what I call the therapeutic curriculum, where educators give students the option of taking a humanities elective or extracurricular enrichment activity

Transformation: Embracing Change - Psychiatry & Behavioral Science, January 2016 - Academy News
Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in the articles contained in the Academy News are those of the identified authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Academy.. AAFS President Weedns theme for this coming year is Transformation: Embracing Change. This is particularly relevant for psychiatry and behavioral science and presents a challenge that is, perhaps, unique to the behavioral sciences when compared to some of the other hard sciences involved in the AAFS. To borrow from the terminology of Dr. Henry Nasrallah, a neurobiology and schizophrenia researcher, psychiatry has moved over the years from Bedlam to biomarkers. What was once considered demonic possession or bad bile is now understood to be the result of neurocircuitry and molecular neurobiology.. However, the complex nature of human emotions, decision-making, and behaviors is still far from easy categorization. Much of our modern understanding is just now coming to light. Diagnostic and ...
The Well-Rounded Game Theorist: Martin Shubik, 1926-2018 - Social Science Space
While in a class on econometrics at the University of Toronto, he had to find some new book that included econometrics and review it. In the library, Shubik picked up John von Neumann and Oskar Morgensterns The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, and the rest is history, as he told Sobel.. From Toronto he attended Princeton University - Morgenstern was his adviser - and earned a masters in economics in 1951 and doctorate in 1953. He served as a research assistant at Princeton alongside seminal figures such as Nash and Shapley until 1955, where became a member of the second class of fellows at the Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences located at Stanford University. Despite his deep grounding in mathematics, Shubik - as the New York Times wrote in his obituary considered himself a social scientist and a micro-microeconomist, … disdained purely theoretical analysis and was nothing if not practical.. An encomium at the Santa Fe Institute noted that in 2005, Shubik and fellow ...

Innovation and Priorities | Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences | Stanford Medicine
The field of psychiatry and behavioral science faces an exceptionally important challenge. Mental disorders represent the leading cause of years of life lost due to disability and premature mortality in economically-established countries, and they are the second-leading cause throughout the world. In light of its overall impact on human health, mental disorders historically have received insufficient scientific attention. And indeed, decades of research attempting to elucidate biologically valid brain disease constructs based on a descriptive clinical taxonomy have been unsuccessful. It is now broadly recognized that a major research paradigm shift is required and is, in fact, underway in Stanfords Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. This paradigm shift emphasizes the identification of typical and atypical mental states (and the dynamic shift between these states) based on the collection and simultaneous analysis of multi-dimensional data: genomic, imaging, epigenetic, biomarker, ...

Great Acceleration - Wikiquote
We are in an emergency situation in the Anthropocene epoch in which the disruption of the Earth system, particularly the climate, is threatening the planet as a place of human habitation. However, our political-economic system, capitalism, is geared primarily to the accumulation of capital, which prevents us from addressing this enormous challenge and accelerates the destruction. Natural scientists have done an excellent and courageous job of sounding the alarm on the enormous dangers of the continuation of business as usual with respect to carbon emissions and other planetary boundaries. But mainstream social science as it exists today has almost completely internalized capitalist ideology; so much so that conventional social scientists are completely unable to address the problem on the scale and in the historical terms that are necessary. They are accustomed to the view that society long ago conquered nature and that social science concerns only people-people relations, never people-nature ...

Impact of Social Sciences - Approaches to assessing impacts in the humanities and social sciences: recommendations from the...
There are a number of important lessons we can take away from such a story. For instance, a researcher might work 15 years on a problem before a practical application is discovered. A network that connects researchers, practitioners, and users may be far better equipped to track the impacts of research than any one researcher is able to. But even when such a system produces great impact data, it might still not be possible to attribute those impacts back to an individual.. This story is one of four semi-hypothetical case studies we composed for our report to illustrate the many different forms that impact assessment can take in the humanities and social sciences. The characters in the stories are fictional, but the scenarios are all inspired by real activities taking place in Canadas research community. While each of these stories helps to illustrate various useful lessons for assessing impacts, the message they send as a whole is perhaps the most important: they show just how diverse the world ...
Natural Categories and Human Kinds: Classification in the Natural and Social Sciences
The notion of natural kinds has been central to contemporary discussions of metaphysics and philosophy of science. Although explicitly articulated by nineteenth-century philosophers like Mill, Whewell and Venn, it has a much older history dating back to Plato and Aristotle. In recent years, essentialism has been the dominant account of natural kinds among philosophers, but the essentialist view has encountered resistance, especially among naturalist metaphysicians and philosophers of science. Informed by detailed examination of classification in the natural and social sciences, this book argues against essentialism and for a naturalist account of natural kinds. By looking at case studies drawn from diverse scientific disciplines, from fluid mechanics to virology and polymer science to psychiatry, the author argues that natural kinds are nodes in causal networks. On the basis of this account, he maintains that there can be natural kinds in the social sciences as well as the natural sciences ...

PlumX - Tools of Toys? On Specific Challenges for Modeling and the Epistemology of Models and Computer Simulations in the...
Mathematical models are a well established tool in most natural sciences. Although models have been neglected by the philosophy of science for a long time, their epistemological status as a link between theory and reality is now fairly well understood. However, regarding the epistemological status of mathematical models in the social sciences, there still exists a considerable unclarity. In my paper I argue that this results from specific challenges that mathematical models and especially computer simulations face in the social sciences. The most important difference between the social sciences and the natural sciences with respect to modeling is that in the social sciences powerful and well confirmed background theories (like Newtonian mechanics, quantum mechanics or the theory of relativity in physics) do not exist in the social sciences. Therefore, an epistemology of models that is formed on the role model of physics may not be appropriate for the social sciences. I discuss the challenges ...

People make choices. Often, the outcome depends on choices other people make. What mental steps do people go through when making such choices? Game theory, the most influential model of choice in economics and the social sciences, offers an answer, one based on games of strategy like chess and checkers: the chooser considers the choices that others will make and makes a choice that will lead to a better outcome for the chooser, given all those choices by other people. It is universally established in the social sciences that classical game theory (even when heavily modified) is bad at predicting behavior. But instead of abandoning classical game theory, various social scientists have mounted an ambitious and energetic rescue operation under the name of behavioral game theory. Its main tool is to propose systematic deviations from the predictions of game theory, such as deviations that arise from character type. Other deviations purportedly come from cognitive overload or limitations. The ...
relationship between science and social development
As a mother of social sciences Sociology has close and intimate relationship with all other social science. The result is that African social sciences are of questionable relevance to local conditions. Social science as a field of study is separate from the natural sciences, which cover topics such as physics, biology, and chemistry. To browse Academia.edu and the wider internet faster and more securely, please take a few seconds to upgrade your browser. This neglect of the social sciences is part of a larger challenge: that of producing research that addresses development priorities such as food, health and energy security, rather than simply meeting academic objectives such as conference presentations and publication in peer-reviewed journals. In fact, anthro-pologist Kroeber pointed out that the two sciences are twin sisters. Science, Technology & Environment: Crisis in Civilization In Statistics & Development, Edited by A. Majumdar, M.

Computer Simulations | Coursera
Offered by 캘리포니아 대학교 데이비스 캠퍼스. Big data and artificial intelligence get most of the press about computational social science, but maybe the most complex aspect of it refers to using computational tools to explore and develop social science theory. This course shows how computer simulations are being used to explore the realm of what is theoretically possible. Computer simulations allow us to study why societies are the way they are, and to dream about the world we would like to live in. This can be as intuitive as playing a video game. Much like the well-known video game SimCity is used to build and manage an artificial city, we use agent-based models to grow and study artificial societies. Without hurting anyone in the real world, computer simulations allow us explore how to make the world a better place. We play hands-on with several practical computer simulation models and explore how we can combine hypothetical models with real world data. Finally, you will program a
