Behavioral and social science research : a national resource by National Research Council Staff( )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The value, significance, and social utility of basic research in the behavioral and social sciences are examined. Following an introduction in chapter 1, there are 4 major chapters. Chapter 2 discusses how the research terrain has been divided among the disciplines of psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, geography, history, and statistics. Also examined are specialization within disciplines, the improvement of data, shifts in conceptual and theoretical foci, and interdisciplinary ferment. Chapter 3 illustrates the progress of the behavioral and social sciences as sciences. One striking feature of advances made is that frequently they have been borrowed from or have contributed to other disciplines. For example, the study of human perception has involved a long-term interaction between psychophysicists describing behavior and sensory physiologists describing the physiological substrate of that behavior. Chapter 4 examines the applications of research findings to public policy formation, social problem solving, and other areas. The concluding chapter sets forth in more general terms the relationship between basic research and its influence and practical application. (RM)

Behavioural and social science research : a national resource. Part 2 by Robert McC Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Areas of behavioral and social science research that have achieved significant breakthroughs in knowledge or application or that show future promise of achieving such breakthroughs are discussed in 12 papers. For example, the paper on formal demography shows how mathematical or statistical techniques can be used to explain and predict change in population characteristics. A paper dealing with behavior and health discusses several biological processes that link behavior to physical illnesses, including stress and such health-impairing habits as smoking, heavy drinking, poor diet, and lack of exercise. In another paper a social anthropologist explores the relationships between culture, social culture, personality, and experience. The remaining papers treat voting behavior research, the life-span approach, income inequality, advances in methods for large-scale surveys and experiments, psychophysics, reading as a cognitive process, property and territoriality, cognitive development in the first years of life, and behavior therapy.
