9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1993 the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy issued a report titled "Science, Technology, and the Federal Government: National Goals for a New Era" (the Goals report) which proposed a framework for federal policy to support science and technology. This document can be considered a companion volume to the Goals report and aims at reshaping the current Ph.D. experience and improving students' ability to make good career choices. Topics covered include: the changing context of graduate education; employment of graduate scientists and engineers including current employment conditions, employment trends, employer perspectives, and the changing context of employment; the education of graduate scientists and engineers including the master's experience, the doctoral experience, time to degree, mechanisms of assistance, career information and guidance, the graduate education of women and minority-group students, foreign graduate students, and postdoctoral education; and a discussion of major related issues including the right number of science and engineering Ph.D.s, the issue of foreign students, time to employment, and information and analysis needs. Recommendations, statistical figures, and data tables are included. Seven appendices include statistics on graduate education of scientists and engineers and employment trends among scientists and engineers with graduate degrees. Contains 66 references. (Jrh)

On being a scientist : a guide to responsible conduct in research by National Academies (U.S.)( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scientific research enterprise is built on a foundation of trust. Scientists trust that the results reported by others are valid. Society trusts that the results of research reflect an honest attempt by scientists to describe the world accurately and without bias. But this trust will endure only if the scientific community devotes itself to exemplifying and transmitting the values associated with ethical scientific conduct. On Being a Scientist was designed to supplement the informal lessons in ethics provided by research supervisors and mentors. The book describes the ethical foundations of scientific practices and some of the personal and professional issues that researchers encounter in their work. It applies to all forms of research--whether in academic, industrial, or governmental settings-and to all scientific disciplines
Experiments in international benchmarking of US research fields by Engineering and Public Policy Committee on Science( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can the federal government gauge the overall health of scientific research--as a whole and in its parts--and determine whether national funding adequately supports national research objectives? It is feasible to monitor US performance with field-by-field peer assessments. This might be done through the establishment of independent panels consisting of researchers who work in a field, individuals who work in closely related fields, and research "users" who follow the field closely. Some of these individuals should be outstanding foreign scientists in the field being examined. This technique of comparative international assessments is also known as international benchmarking. Experiments in International Benchmarking of U.S. Research Fields evaluates the feasibility and utility of the benchmarking technique. In order to do this, the report internationally benchmarks three fields: mathematics, immunology, and materials science and engineering, then summarizes the results of these experiments

Rising above the gathering storm : developing regional innovation environments, summary of a workshop by Thomas S Arrison( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 2005, the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine released a policy report that served as a call to action. The report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future" observed that "the scientific and technological building blocks critical to the United States economic leadership are eroding at a time when many other nations are gathering strength." The report laid out 20 recommendations in four broad areas - K-12 education, science and engineering research, higher education, and economic and technology policy - and warned that a failure to take action could have dire economic consequences. "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" sparked intense discussion among policy makers, industrial leaders, and the general public. Five years after the release of the "Gathering Storm" report, a second report, "Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5", assessed changes in America's competitive posture. This report concluded that "our nation's outlook has not improved, but rather has worsened" since the "Gathering Storm" report was released. The report noted examples of other nations that have upgraded their investments in education, technological infrastructure, and innovation systems to a greater extent than has the United States. The ability of the states to drive innovation was the impetus behind a major workshop held in Madison, Wisconsin, on September 20-22, 2011. Titled "Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Developing Regional Innovation Environments," the workshop brought together leaders in education, government, economic development, and industrial innovation to discuss state and regional initiatives to boost competitiveness through science, technology, and innovation
Increasing national resilience to hazards and disasters : the perspective from the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Mississippi : summary of a workshop by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Natural disasters are having an increasing effect on the lives of people in the United States and throughout the world. Every decade, property damage caused by natural disasters and hazards doubles or triples in the United States. More than half of the U.S. population lives within 50 miles of a coast, and all Americans are at risk from such hazards as fires, earthquakes, floods, and wind. The year 2010 saw 950 natural catastrophes around the world--the second highest annual total ever--with overall losses estimated at $130 billion. The increasing impact of natural disasters and hazards points to increasing importance of resilience, the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, or more successfully adapt to actual or potential adverse events, at the individual, local, state, national, and global levels. <em>Assessing National Resilience to Hazards and Disasters</em> reviews the effects of Hurricane Katrina and other natural and human-induced disasters on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Mississippi and to learn more about the resilience of those areas to future disasters. Topics explored in the workshop range from insurance, building codes, and critical infrastructure to private-sector issues, public health, nongovernmental organizations and governance. This workshop summary provides a rich foundation of information to help increase the nation's resilience through actionable recommendations and guidance on the best approaches to reduce adverse impacts from hazards and disasters
