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
Introduction: The Tools of Social Science Research: 10.4018/978-1-4666-8116-3.ch001: In this chapter, students are presented with the concept of empiricism, which serves as the basis for all social science research. Quantitative, deductive
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.
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 ...

Video-based human activity recognition (HAR) means the analysis of motions and behaviors of human from the low level sensors. Over the last decade, automatic HAR is an exigent research area and is considered a significant concern in the field of computer vision and pattern recognition. In this paper, we have presented a robust and an accurate activity recognition system called WS-HAR that consists of wavelet transform coupled with stepwise linear discriminant analysis (SWLDA) followed by hidden Markov model (HMM). Symlet wavelet has been employed in order to extract the features from the activity frames. The most prominent features were selected by proposing a robust technique called stepwise linear discriminant analysis (SWLDA) that focuses on selecting the localized features from the activity frames and discriminating their class based on regression values (i.e., partial F-test values). Finally, we applied a well-known sequential classifier called hidden Markov model (HMM) to give the appropriate

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. ...

To recognize individual activities in multi-resident environments with pervasive sensors, some researchers have pointed out that finding data associations can contribute to activity recognition and previous methods either need or infer data association when recognizing new multi-resident activities based on new observations from sensors. However, it is often difficult to find out data associations, and available approaches to multi-resident activity recognition degrade when the data association is not given or induced with low accuracy. This paper exploits some simple knowledge of multi-resident activities through defining Combined label and the state set, and proposes a two-stage activity recognition method for multi-resident activity recognition. We define Combined label states at the model building phase with the help of data association, and learn Combined label states at the new activity recognition phase without the help of data association. Our two stages method is embodied in the new activity

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. Sills and Merton draw extensively upon the writings that constitute the historical core of the social sciences and social thought; those works with staying power often described as the "classical texts." Many quotations have been drawn from these classical texts because the quotations contain memorable ideas memorably expressed. Both consequential and memorable, these

Hometown: Silicon Valley, specifically Sunnyvale, CA. --- Why did you decide to come to UCI and pursue majors in social policy and public service and education science?. I decided to come to UCI because one of my high school teachers mentioned how everyone at UCI is always smiling and that he thought I would be a good fit here. Also, the proximity to LA, the beach, Disneyland and SD were very helpful too. My AP government class required us to watch the West Wing as summer homework and it made me interested in government. Im also interested in education because of how education policies affect me as a student and the relevancy of education to my life now. When do you plan to finish your degree and what do you plan to do after? I plan to finish my degree in June 2022. Afterwards, I hope to conduct research with Fulbright or as part of the Carnegie Junior Fellows Program. I plan to attend law school and eventually run for office. Ultimately, I hope to be elected President of the United States. ...
Established in August 2004, the ESRC Genomics Policy and Research Forum was a novel initiative in the field of social science research. As part of the ESRC Genomics Network, the Forum acted to integrate the diverse strands of social science research within and beyond the Network; to develop links between social scientists and scientists working across the entire range of genomic science and technology; and to connect research in this area to policy makers, business, the media and civil society in the UK and abroad.. A key part of the Forums work was to exploit synergies across the ESRC Genomics Network, and to ensure the visibility and use of the Network and its output. These functions were no longer needed when the Network ceased operations and so the Forum closed in June 2013..

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

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
Hamilton is under no illusions. We are in trouble. Now is not the time to be blind to the changes already set in motion within the Earth system: we are leaving behind the Holocene and entering into a new epoch for which there is no precedent. That earlier epoch was a time of relatively stable climate conditions that enabled human progress and the nurture of culture and civilisations. That time is going: the Anthropocene refers to a new age which bears the mark of human impact in such a way that humanity has become a force of nature just as much as volcanism, glaciation, and earthquakes.. How are we to live in this future without precedents? There are those who assume that the Anthropocene should be welcomed and interestingly endow a geologic era with a moral quality calling it the good Anthropocene. Through various forms of geo-engineering and invention we can manage this changing climate and a planetary Earth system which is responding defiantly to humanitys impact. There are others who ...

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. Through his ...
Humans are altering the planet, including long-term global geologic processes, at an increasing rate. Any formal recognition of an Anthropocene epoch in the geological time scale hinges onwhether humans have changed the Earth system sufficiently to produce a stratigraphic signature in sediments and ice that is distinct from that of the Holocene epoch. Proposals for marking the start of the Anthropocene include anearly Anthropocene beginning with the spread of agriculture and deforestation; the Columbian Exchange of Old World and New World species; the Industrial Revolution at ~1800 CE; and the mid-20th century Great Acceleration of population growth and industrialization.. ...

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.. ...
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 ...

We review the scientific literature, especially from the past decade, on the impacts of human activities on the Antarctic environment. A range of impacts has been identified at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Chemical contamination and sewage disposal on the continent have been found to be long-lived. Contemporary sewage management practices at many coastal stations are insufficient to prevent local contamination but no introduction of non-indigenous organisms through this route has yet been demonstrated. Human activities, particularly construction and transport, have led to disturbances of flora and fauna. A small number of non-indigenous plant and animal species has become established, mostly on the northern Antarctic Peninsula and southern archipelagos of the Scotia Arc. There is little indication of recovery of overexploited fish stocks, and ramifications of fishing activity on bycatch species and the ecosystem could also be far-reaching. The Antarctic Treaty System and its ...
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

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 ...
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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
