Communicating research by A. J Meadows ( )
18 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Communicating Research explores how changing technologies affect academic research practices. The book begins with the rise of electronic media and fundamental changes in the dissemination of research. It then outlines the problems and concerns of researchers, librarians, and publishers: inadequacies of copyright laws, the rise of interlibrary loan practices, and the unchecked broadcast of working papers. These problems lead to a discussion of research practices across scholarly disciplines and an investigation of the biases and intentions of practitioners. The book includes historical data and observations on the current scene in order to make predictions about the future. Communicating Research draws conclusions about the ways that differing norms, such as the differences in the ways chemists and sociologists conduct, write, and publish their research, affect publication trends. The book also looks closely at the efficiency of publication strategies and their effectiveness in reaching the researchers' targeted audiences. Meadows uses two avenues to explore the communication of research findings. One is the medium used to convey the message; the other is the needs of the research community. He offers a solid base of analysis for understanding researchers, their biases, their assumptions about the communication, and the publishers. It explains variations in the reviewing processes for books and journals. It tailors communication and publishing insights for researchers, and offers superior historical information

The future of the universe by A. J Meadows ( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What will happen to the planets, stars, and galaxies in the distant future as the universe matures and ages? And closer to home, what will happen to mankind, and to any other intelligent life that may exist on other worlds?" "Informed scientific speculation about these biggest-of-all questions is difficult but by no means impossible, and The Future of The Universe brings together current thinking on the subject. Beginning with a searching look at how our own Sun will probably evolve and the effect this will have on the planets of the solar system, Jack Meadows then turns his spotlight on the stars, galaxies, and clusters of galaxies. Finally he considers the various possible fates of the universe itself, and looks at our present understanding of this ultimate enigma."--Jacket
