Integrity in scientific research : creating an environment that promotes responsible conduct by Committee on Assessing Integrity in Research Environments (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considerable effort has been devoted to the task of defining research misconduct and elaborating methods and for investigating allegations of misconduct. Much less attention has been devoted, however, to the task of fostering a research environment that promotes integrity. Integrity in Scientific Research focuses on the research environment and attempts to define and describe those elements that enable unique individuals to act with integrity
Ensuring safe food : from production to consumption by Committee to Ensure Safe Food from Production to Consumption (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How safe is our food supply? Each year one in every ten Americans has an illness caused by the food they consume. These food-borne illnesses are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, pesticide residues, food additives, and toxic chemicals naturally present in food and in the environment. Recent actions taken at the federal, state, and local levels in response to the increase in reported incidences of food-borne illnesses point to the need to evaluate the food safety system in the United States. This book assesses the effectiveness of the current food safety system and provides recommendations on changes needed to ensure an effective science-based food safety system. Food Safety discusses such important issues as: What are the primary hazards associated with the food supply? What gaps exist in the current system for ensuring a safe food supply? What effects do trends in food consumption have on food safety? What is the impact of food preparation and handling practices in the home, in food services, or in production operations on the risk of food-borne illnesses? What organizational changes in responsibility or oversight could be made to increase the effectiveness of the food safety system? The committee discusses the current trends in risks associated with microbiological, chemical, and physical hazards. The book also considers how changes in technology and food processing might introduce new risks. It is vitally important to determine the most effective structure of responsibility to ensure consumer safety. To that end, the committee makes recommendations on steps for developing a coordinated, unified system for food safety as well as recommendations on the additional research needed. Food Safety will be important for policy-makers, food trade professionals, food producers, food processors, food researchers, public health professionals, and consumers

The sun to the earth--and beyond : a decadal research strategy in solar and space physics by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sun is the source of energy for life on earth and is the strongest modulator of the human physical environment. In fact, the Sun's influence extends throughout the solar system, both through photons, which provide heat light, and ionization, and through the continuous outflow of a magnetized, supersonic ionized gas known as the solar wind. While the accomplishments of the past decade have answered important questions about the physics of the Sun, the interplanetary medium, and the space environments of Earth and other solar system bodies, they have also highlighted other questions, some of which are long-standing and fundamental. "The Sun to the Earth--and Beyond organizes these questions in terms of five challenges that are expected to be the focus of scientific investigations in solar and space physics during the coming decade and beyond

Improving palliative care : we can take better care of people with cancer( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a society, we have made amazing gains in being able to detect and treat cancer. Even so, about half the people who are told by their doctors that they have cancer will die within a few years. This means that every year about one million people find out that they have cancer and are treated, and about one-half million people die of cancer nationwide. So far, most cancer research and treatment has focused on trying to cure cancer. There hasn't been much attention paid to other important issues, such as pain control and taking care of other troubling symptoms. Now more and more people are aware that there are cancer care needs beyond just trying to cure it. Attention is now being paid to helping people with cancer cope better with the problems that may arise when people are being treated or as they approach death
