The impact of international graduate students on the enrolment of US students in advanced degree programmes has been the subject of intense debate in the last decade. Overall, arguments pro and against the view that international graduate students displace US students in the pursuit of higher degrees in science and engineering have been based on opinion or retrospective analysis. While these studies offer useful insights, ultimately they fall short of supportin...

AbstractSeveral avenues are open to students who wish to study advanced science or mathematics in high school, which include Advanced Placement courses and teacher-designed courses unaffiliated with organized programs. We employ a retrospective cohort study of 4,691 na-tionally representative college students at 34 randomly selected, colleges and universities to examine the relationship between taking advanced high school courses and students' interest in pursuing a S...

The relationship between researchers’ publishing and citing behaviours has received little examination despite its potential importance in scholarly communication, particularly at an international level. To remedy this we studied documents and their references indexed in Thomson Reuters's Web of Science (WoS) in the period 2000–2009 to compare journal publishing behaviours against journal citing behaviours across the world. The results reveal that most publicat...

We have developed a new introductory physics/chemistry programme that teaches advanced science topics and practical laboratory skills to freshmen undergraduate students through the use of student-led, bona fide research activities. While many recent attempts to improve college-level physics education have focused on integrating interactive demonstrations and activities into traditional passive lectures, we have taken the idea of active-learning several steps further. Working...

The Journal of Plant Research (JPR) is one of the few journals that provide opportunities for publishing across the breadth of plant sciences (Nishida 2013a). The research areas range widely, i.e., from taxonomy, phylogenetics, and evolutionary biology to ecology and ecophysiological and environmental biology; morphology, anatomy, and structural biology; genetics and developmental biology; physiology, biochemistry, and molecular and cell biology; ...

Abstract Context Symptom assessment by computers is only effective if it provides valid results and is perceived as useful for clinical use by the end users: patients and health care providers. Objectives To identify factors associated with discontinuation, time expenditure, and patient preferences of the computerized symptom assessment used in an international multicenter data collection project: the European Palliative Care Research Collaborative-Computerized Symptom Assessment. ...

Despite an increased focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in U.S. schools, today’s students often struggle to maintain adequate performance in these fields compared with students in other countries (Cheek in Thinking constructively about science, technology, and society education. State University of New York, Albany, 1992; Enyedy and Goldberg 2004; Mandinach and Lewis 2006). In addition, despite considerable pressure to promote the placement of ...

Stem cell engineering, that is, the interface of engineering with the world of stem cells, has emerged over the past decade as an important field of research and application. Activities that are part of this field range from basic stem cell research to the development of models, tools, enabling technologies, and to advancing stem cell biomanufacturing and the development of stem cell-based products and applications. There thus are a variety of ways that ...

It may be somewhat unexpected to find a special issue of Chemical Monthly dealing with materials science, because the journal is of course especially well known among scientists focusing on synthetic chemistry. However, as the borders between different natural sciences diminish, this is even more so for dividing lines within a specialization such as chemistry. The main challenges in synthetic chemistry are dominated by two driving forces: one is to design novel functi...
