Crossroads of social science : the ICPSR 25th anniversary volume by Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research( )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there is much disagreement as to what social science looks like or should look like, it is in part due to what the fact that not all social scientists are social scientists. There are those who, in their attempts to define social science, take recourse to philosophies of science, but philosophies of science, it seems to me, are the business of philosophers and not of scientists. Much as the method of "thick description" differs from the methods of quantitative analysis pursued by the contributors to this volume, there is much wisdom in the reminder of the thick-descriptionist anthropologist Clifford Geertz (1973) that "if you want to understand what a science is, you should look in the first instance not at its theories or its findings, and certainly not at what its apologists say about it; you should look at what the practitioners of it do." The contributors to this volume are all well-known practitioners reflecting in one way or another on what they as individuals or as members of a social science discipline are doing. There is no lack of apologetic, critical, or programmatic statements in their diagnoses, but they come to these statements as practitioners and not as philosophers. All of them speak from experience in doing theory-driven empirical research, not from the lofty perch of some comprehensive vision that, more likely than not, is built on feet of clay and likely to crumble when the next vision comes along. Yet, there is much heterogeneity in these essays. Reviewers of volumes such as this collection almost invariably complain that the symposium resembles more a potpourri than a symphony, or that the editor has failed to integrate the various contributions into some overarching framework. Yet as this book argues, there are many crossroads where social scientists meet, move, halt, or collide, and the contributors to this symposium, while having more in common than not, also differ in their particular interests or concerns. It cannot be otherwise. The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research is the country and perhaps the world leading center for archiving quantitative data and for utilizing these data through instruction in relevant theories and methods, thus contributing to the development of the social sciences and to studies of their relation to broader trends in the various disciplines. This is their 25th anniversary volume
Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) : Higher Education Finance Data, 1991-1992 by National Center for Education Statistics( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary purpose of this survey is to collect data on the salaries, tenure, and fringe benefits of full-time instructional faculty by contract length, sex, and academic rank. These data permit analysis, from a national perspective, of the number and tenure status of full-time faculty members in relation to enrollment and number of degrees granted, and the evaluation of faculty compensation in relation to institutional financial resources for an indication of the economic status of institutions. These data also enable trend analysis of average full-time salaries for an assessment of the economic status of full-time faculty. Part 1, Response Status Information, contains response status information to the salary and fringe benefits survey for active institutions in the final universe. Part 2, Salaries and Tenure of Full-Time Instructional Faculty, contains salary and tenure data. Salary data include total salary outlays and the total number of instructional faculty that were paid those outlays. Tenure data include number of faculty with tenure, number on tenure track, and number not on tenure track. Part 3, Fringe Benefits of Full-Time Instructional Faculty, contains benefits data. Benefits data include fringe benefit expenditures and the number of full-time faculty covered by retirement, medical/dental, and group life insurance plans.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04259.v1
