Die Wissenschaft der Bürger und ihre Gespenster. Über einige Fehldeutungen in der gegenwärtigen Citizen Science-Debatte

Seit einiger Zeit wird intensiv über eine „Wissenschaft der Laien“ („Citizen Science“) debattiert. Dabei kursieren neben begründeter Kritik auch Fehldeutungen und Vorurteile. Ein Versuch, die „Citizen Science“ als Chance zu verstehen.

Nutzung von Social Media und onlinebasierten Anwendungen in der Wissenschaft. Erste Ergebnisse des Science 2.0-Survey 2013 des Leibniz-Forschungsverbunds „Science 2.0“

Twitter spielt für Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler kaum eine Rolle. Stattdessen stehen spezialisierte Anwendungen wie Academia, Dropbox oder Moodle hoch im Kurs. Die Online-Enzyklopädie Wikipedia wird in Forschung und Lehre besonders viel genutzt. Der Leibniz-Forschungsverbund Science 2.0 legt den Studienbericht seiner bundesweiten Befragung vor.

Die Zehn-Minuten-Herausforderung. Über Science Slams

Die Uhr tickt, der Vortragende hat zehn Minuten Zeit, sein Projekt einem fachfremden Publikum zu erklären, möglichst verständlich und unterhaltsam. Science Slams boomen in Deutschland, inzwischen werden sogar Meisterschaften ausgetragen. Ohne Zweifel gibt es bereits viele exzellente Konferenzvorträge und Vorlesungen, die didaktisch gelungen und zugleich unterhaltsam sind. Aber Science Slams treiben diesen Anspruch auf die Spitze.

Introduction to a special issue: Academic knowledge production, diffusion and commercialization: policies, practices and perspectives

This special issue is a bridging effort to bring together science policy and academic research productivity analysis by focusing on knowledge production, diffusion and commercialization policies and practices. The discussion addresses two major issues: (1) the changing national science policies and their influence on knowledge management in universities; and (2) the impact of policies and organizational characteristics on academic knowledge production, diffusion and commercialization. The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the key debates on the two issues as well as to present the articles included in the special issue.

Science and Technology Basic Plan – Japans Wissenschaftspolitik 2011-2015

Eigentlich sollte der vierte „Science and Technology Basic Plan“ bereits im März 2011 veröffentlicht werden. Doch es wurde dann doch August bis der Plan aufgrund des großen Erdbebens in Ostjapan und seiner Folgen überarbeitet war. Neben Japans allgemeiner Strategie für Wissenschaft und Technologie enthält der Plan deshalb vorrangig Maßnahmen, die im Zusammenhang mit nationalen Katastrophen und Krisen stehen. Im Vordergrund steht die Bewältigung der Auswirkungen der Dreifachkatastrophe im März 2011. Vorgesehen sind der Wiederaufbau der Industrie, die Wiederherstellung einer sozialen Infrastruktur sowie die Herstellung sicherer Lebensumstände in den betroffenen Gebieten.

A perspective on the future possibilities for research by health care professionals

Midwives, members of allied health professionals and nurses make up 64 % of the personnel in the Austrian health sector. These occupational groups are now being educated at the tertiary level – at universities of applied sciences. Due to this academisation, health professionals have to meet the challenge of conducting research on their own or in collaboration with others. While some European countries are already experienced in doing research, Austria is just beginning to do so. This article focuses on the demands placed upon universities of applied sciences and collaborations that could potentially strenghten their research capabilities. It also highlights the critical aspects of conducting research within these young academic disciplines and describes research strategies for performing this research.
