Questions related to Arts and Humanities
I want to apply for the Web of science and Scopus indexing of my journals. To make a healthy Editorial Board I want names of renowned and qualifies scholars preferably PHDs in the following fields.
Literature, social sciences, arts, humanities, Behavioural sciences, various subjects of sciences and engineering those who agree may send their cv s or simple Co sent on the following e mail address.
Those saying yes your link to research gate profile may also be posted on the website if you are unwilling to send cv
When I look at the comments for interesting-looking articles, I hope to see remarks that address aspects of the contents of the articles, that aid understanding, or make useful suggestions. Instead I typically find scores of mere "congratulations" and no further information. This is completely useless and irritating, and what few informative comments there might be are buried and hidden in the mass of useless comments.
Recueil de planches, sur les sciences, les arts libéraux, et les arts méchaniques : avec leur explication (1762) was edited by Denis Diderot. Was it Jacques-François Blondel to write the following commentary about François Franque? Where is the evidence?
“Cette Planche offre une distribution réguliere très-in-génieuse, contenue dans un terrain clos de murs, le plus irrégulier qu'il soit possible, & dont M. Franque a tiré parti d'une maniere à faire juger de sa sagacité, de son goût & de son intelligence. En effet, rien de si bien entendu que ce plan; beauté, proportion, variété, agrément, commodité, symétrie, relation des dedans aux dehors, tout s'y trouve réuni. En un mot, ce projet nous paroît un chef-d'œuvre, & seroit seul capable de faire beaucoup d'honneur à cet architecte, s'il n'avoir pouvé par tant d'autres productions l'étendue de ses connoissances, & son expérience dans l'art de bâtir.”
Some time ago I shared my scientific essay with GRIN. They offered me selling hard copy of this work via GRIN site or Amazon and pdf version to download from GRIN. I prepared pdf version of the paper and upload it, but I must admit there was inconsistency between final version active on site and pdf version that I have shared with them - problems with accurate formatting. Even if I selected for free option, little price was set up for downloading the pdf. Each one who wants to upload its own paper, has to agree with conditions, and one of them is that the paper will be active at least for 5 years under agreed conditions.
Still I have doubts if I did wrong or good sharing my essay with them. As a publisher was GRIN suitable choice indeed? What do you think? What experience do you have with this publisher?
Thanks in advance for your reply!
Any good journal in graphics, visual culture, fine arts, visual communication or related humanities? Preferably Scopus and web of science indexed.
I was once asked to volunteer to teach a philosophy course for U3A. I had to turn down the request because of the excessive time involved in travelling to and from the venue, otherwise I would have been happy to do it. However, I later learned that even volunteer instructors were required to become fee-paying members of their U3A chapter. Since I had no interest in availing myself of their services I thought that policy was a bit much.
If we consider the total loss of our ethical and moral principles, this means that "human misery" "knocks on our door" ... "Misery" comes from the failure to fulfill our main duties towards others, and it is precisely there where it has its origin the entrance through the door of all "vices" .
Oh human misery, how many things you submit to for money! [Leonardo Da Vinci]
Where can one find the most up-to-date and comprehensive list of journals in the humanities (esp. philosophy and literary studies) that should be avoided because of their unwarranted publication fees, shoddy or fraudulent refereeing practices, and absence of digital preservation policies?
Can the second-language version, strictly speaking, be considered a translation of the first-language version or is it merely a somewhat looser interpretation? How do such authors approach the task? How are the two versions produced (e.g. conjointly or serially?) and how closely are they related?
In this post-millennial world of cosmopolitanism, globalisation, and world literature, one wonders if the present moment isn't the perfect opportunity to take stock of where our interests and priorities lie, what kind of life lessons does a global pandemic have for all of us as a collective entity, and above all how do we respond to something that simply exceeds the limits of any one particular area, region or nation-state? It is also a timely reminder of how we take certain things for granted and in the punishing rush of events, forget to spend quality time with those who matter to us the most, be it family, friends or acquaintances.
Through social distancing, we are paradoxically coming together in an attempt to contain the damage. This is far removed from the world of digital technology and social networking sites where the idea of togetherness also simultaneously exists with a profound sense of boredom, isolation and estrangement. The global economy has come to a veritable standstill and yet for the first time in so many years people are actually realising the merits of altruism and putting the interests of the 'other' before the 'self'. Instant gratification, limited attention span and 'the devil may care' attitude is being decisively supplanted by an increasing concern for the environment, the underprivileged and the future generations.
But above all this crisis is about the dissolution of human pride and an equally important focus on learning humility. It is a reality check to prevent us from taking ourselves too seriously for far too long. The profit-maximising impulse and the fiercely competitive spirit that is now being instilled right from the increasingly commercialised spaces of classrooms to the demanding environs of corporate offices has been rendered frozen by something which is much more pressing, immediate and therefore worthy of attention.
In such a scenario, a moment of pause and reflection never hurts. It gives us a breathing space from the target-oriented lives that we find ourselves in, especially in a country like India where population significantly alters the stakes of job prospects and economic opportunities. And while it is true that the destitute and the daily wage labourers, the rickshaw walas and the domestic helpers bear the worst brunt of this protracted lockdown, it also opens up a rare window of opportunity for those who are in a position of power and privilege to contribute in their own ways toward combating the spectre of hunger and starvation.
Life, as we know it, will never be the same. The haunting memories of these difficult times will always endure while the notion of normalcy and restitution will probably be the most challenging proposition for policy makers. The spirit of resilience and ingenuity that human beings have repeatedly shown right throughout history is for the first time proving to be inadequate. And there lies the rub. An overriding emphasis on empathy which is formed in the crucible of a global crisis could quite easily become a distant memory the moment that threat is successfully diffused.
Self-aggrandisement would once again be at an all-time high. But do we want to spin around in circles and just wait for the next major calamity to once again teach us about wisdom and virtue? Or haven’t we had enough of an eye-opener to realise that it is only by locating oneself in the larger scheme of things and network of relationships that a more desirable and progressive future is possible. To understand this in its proper context, one only needs to imagine a hypothetical situation in which if any pharmaceutical company would have been successful in finding a cure for COVID-19, it would have again been driven by the predictable considerations of personal profit masking itself as public welfare.
So where do we go from here? And how do we reconcile our punishing schedules [an ostensibly stultifying one for many in times of a lockdown] with a profound appreciation for everything precious, beautiful and worthwhile in our lives? What are the bitter truths that we could take in our strides without caring too much about a loss of pride or self-respect? Because after all it is about recognising the priceless merit of the here and now as opposed to the idealistic and the utopian. It is about taking cognisance of both the kids as well as the elderly, the indigent neighbour as well as tenacious doctors and their committed support staff. And last but not the least, it is about practising kindness, compassion, and humility with others that could help us confront our personal demons and eventually exorcise them.
I am a first-year PhD student who would like to hear about other researchers' experience related to interdisciplinarity within the humanities, especially those combining both text and visual elements:
- Which are some suitable methods that can be applied?
- Should both areas of studies be represented in a balanced way?
- Any tip that you would have loved to hear before developing your own interdisciplinary project
Calculation of the exact position of the lunar node will require calculation of "r" for the same longitude. It could be done with some trial and error but I am wondering whether there is a straight forward method.
In a research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we are currently trying to establish indicators and quality criteria for measuring the social impact of the social sciences and humanities. We are interested in the question of what social impacts SSH has and, of course, where the limits of measurability lie. Do you know of any relevant literature that deals with the social impact of SSH? I would be grateful for hints.
This question is the title of a video on Youtube that intrigued me, especially because of these accompanying remarks:
«It sounds like a hugely arrogant and self-serving suggestion to imply that cleverness might lead you to loneliness. But if you define cleverness in a selective (and modest) way, there may truly be an aspect whereby it can lead to a certain isolation. [...]
«It sounds like a very mean and undemocratic thought, trading off the peculiar glamour that isolation has in a Romantic culture – in order to gain an oblique sense of superiority and perhaps pass off an absence of social skills as a virtue. It is important, therefore, to be clear what is meant here by intelligence. It has nothing to do with degrees or any of the criteria by which we ordinarily measure cleverness. What is meant is emotional intelligence, which exists (or not) in every strata and nook of society…»
Many scientists lived who have milestone the world with his studies from past to present. Which scientist has been a role model for you through his studies or his/her behavior? Which have their properties, behaviors, inventions or principles, etc., leading to you or your studies? For example, "Karl Popper's Basic Scientific Principle Falsifiability" rules to me. Karl Popper is defining the inherent testability of any scientific hypothesis by this principle.
Is it really necessary to teach unscientific knowledges of humanities to STEM students ? In Europe such as UK, Germany, France etc STEM students just learn their related STEM courses so that they can graduate in 3 years whereas in US 4 years. Since1 more year of tuition and living and starting 1 year late in job is a considerable loss of time and finance to students and their parents. These issues must be considered in favour of students who accumulate so much loan debts rather than US universities and relate academics.
The common view is that it does, but recently this view has been challenged. For example Prum (2013):
"Current concepts of art cannot exclusively circumscribe the human arts from many forms of non-human biotic art. Without assuming an arbitrarily anthropocentric perspective, any concept of art will
need to engage with biodiversity, and either recognize many instances of biotic advertisements as art, or exclude some instances of human art."
Are citation chances for researches in pure sciences more likely than researches in humanities to hit a high score?!
Of course you'll get cited when you write a good research, but based on observation I noticed that researches in sciences like physics, biology, mathematics,...etc get more citations even though some researchers come from a not very robust academic background!
Thank you for sharing your opinion!
Works of art are an important element of culture in the social and cultural heritage. The achievements of culture, including works of art, should be cherished for future generations, they can not be allowed to be forgotten, and unfortunately it often happens that in the era of current informational technological revolution, the development of new media, in the pursuit of modernity specific aspects of culture, tradition and art they are often interpreted only in the historical dimension.
On the other hand, new information technologies, new online media should be used to promote traditional values of culture and art. For example, websites have been created for many art and culture. Many works of art, entire collections of many museums are digitized in the form of a digital record of reproduction of works of art so as to increase the accessibility of citizens to cultural and cultural heritage.
Does this type of propagation of culture and art on the Internet should be developed?
I think so.
Do you agree with me?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.
Relanzamos este post, con los datos actualizados extraídos del Master List de Web of Science en fecha del 6/12/2015, pensando especialmente en los profesores que tienen que acreditar la calidad de sus revistas en el proceso de sexenios que comienza mañana.
Thomson Reuters lanza un nuevo órdago a la mesa. Si hace un año aumentaba la cobertura de Web of Science con las revistas de Scielo e incluía la base de datos Scielo Citation Index, ahora, crea un nuevo producto, Emerging Source Citation Index, que vió la luz en Noviembre. Emerging Source Citation Index (ESCI) consiste en una base de datos dónde están todas las revistas que en la práctica están siendo evaluadas para entrar a formar parte de las bases de datos de Web of Science Core Collections (Science Citation Index,Social Science Citation Index y Arts & Humanities Citation Index). Por tanto no estamos realmente ante un nuevo producto, sino ante la explotación pública de la base de datos que utilizaban los analistas de Web of Science para realizar el seguimiento de aquellas revistas que optaban a entrar en los productos de evaluación de revistas más exigentes (Core Collections). Esto añade transparencia al proceso y hace públicas las métricas de estas revistas. Thomson se postula como el producto de evaluación de revistas con un mayor número de cabeceras.
Emerging Source Citation Index empieza con 2400 revistas de 82 países, lo que amplía mucho la cobertura, en un claro ejemplo del interés de Thomson Reuters por mejorar la presencia de áreas sub-representadas en el producto. No obstante, los cinco países con mayor presencia en ESCI son anglosajones (Inglaterra, USA, Canadá, Países Bajos e Italia). La presencia Iberoamericana en el producto es secundaria, y sin embargo, porcentualmente es el producto de Thomson Reuters, si obviamente descartamos Scielo Citation Index, donde nuestras revistas tienen una mayor presencia. En presencia se sitúa España la sexta con 165 revistas y Brasil la octava con 81.
Que opinan de esto ante Conacyt para el SNI??????
Researchers are engaged in conducting research in diverse areas such as Science, Technology, Medicines, Arts, Humanities and many more. Many researchers are doing interdisciplinary research.
While conducting research, there are likely to be similarities and differences in research approach and methodology.
In your opinion, what are the similarities and differences in approach and methodology for research in Science, Technology, Medicines, Arts, Humanities and other areas ?
See the following link for a description of graph databases https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_database
It seems that such data bases and the benefits they provide for analysis have primarily been used in business, basic science and in examination of social interactions, e.g. social networks. It would be helpful to know about other uses such in the humanities.
I started videoblog about culture and science recently on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oqrctt4zh3A&t=10s). Would you like to share with me your experience on vlogs and how to improve transmission of knowledge through YT?
I'm writing an essay about personalisation and am looking to see if there has been any writing about context-aware recommender systems for groups?
For example, a bar that autoplays music based on the music tastes of people that are in the bar but also taking into account the context (i.e. Friday night vs Sunday afternoon)?
What are the symmetrical phenomena in your scientific or artistic field which are comparable with symmetry of two successive musical phrases (like two atoms which make up a molecule)?
The nature is full of symmetrical balances. I am working on identical futures of symmetry in arts and sciences. I would be grateful if you exemplify symmetries in features and components related to materials or issues in your field.
Psycholinguistics, being a field of study that delves into the intricacies of the human brain operations, has shown a huge interest in studying the simultaneous rendering of the message of all its aspects. since this can be possible, can psycholinguistics improve the interpreter's performance in the black box too?
The only one I could find so far is: "Archive" by Arkadi Zaides.
Examples of possible non-fictional video footage: news, historical, documentary, crowd sourced, surveillance tape (not showing actors).
I'm looking at where arts journalists are finding new or innovative ways to engage in criticism. Put more generally, who is challenging the criticism crisis?
I came across Ben Davis, who is an art critic living and working in New York City, and his keynote on post-descriptive criticism. He experimented with critiques that used images only, for example.
Australia is generally regarded as being one of the worst countries for investing in Arts and Culture. I would like to present data showing this using the most recent figures. Australia's investment is lower than Canada and New Zealand for example based on 2010 figures.
Roland Barthes' "The death of the Author" seems to establish that authorial power is communitary and that authorship belongs to audiences who can deconstruct the narrative possibilities of a work of art beyond the context of the narratives instantiated by the Author or painter or Sculptor, or Director of a work of art.
I am not sure if Barthes is basically saying that something can be dissected and deconstructed ad infinitum in ways that organize new meanings and that freedom or play belongs to the Audience, or if he's mimicing Thus Spake Zarathustra with the notion that the rigid formalism of Art was a dead art, such that with respect to the grand narratives of a tradition, "God ((The voice of unification and individuation at the precipice of a prioritization of the alleged creator of a message or set of messages, is exhaustively the author such that the voice of that author bears no weight and ....)) is dead"
Or English painting in the fifteenth century, for that matter.
I have found surprisingly little out there. Lorne Campbell's Renaissance Portraits carefully avoids discussing England's input before the Tudors and Fredrick Hepburn leaves out more than he puts in in his Portraits of the Later Plantagenets.
I'm left with cross referencing and suppositions... It's maddening!
I am trying to analyse how bodies presented in contemporary religious movies are becoming increasingly 'sexy' so I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on some theoretical work or past research work on such a topic.
Within the ideas of deep ecology, social ecology, and ecofeminism are there robust cultural alternatives to commercial forestry, parks, and conservation plans? Are these ideas - primarily - embodied and tested in the policy and planning of forest landscapes anywhere in the world?
In the Humanities, what is it about secondary sources that can make them so undesirable? Perhaps it is partly due to "straw-man" characterizations, and partly because they tend to be written in such a way where the author does the thinking and the reader does the memorizing.
Are there pressures within our educational systems that work against the development of academics and thinkers who delve broadly across disciplines in their research and writings? Does specialisation ensure that we all all reading and thinking narrowly within our disciplinary areas or does the open access of information across the internet mean that we are all becoming more interdisciplinary? I would be interested to hear your thoughts.
Do current academic institutions leave room for anymore to be truly eclectic in their academic practice? Very many of us enjoy and find great reward from reading outside of our specialised academic fields. We also often find utility in inter-disciplinary collaborations. However, do pressures exist within our educational systems, for example, the pressures for tenure in the US that discourage us to truly immerse ourselves and work broadly and across disciplines? Does specialisation mean that we tend to read and think narrowly within our disciplinary areas? Conversely, does the easier access afforded by the internet and communication technologies facilitate greater access to information and collaboration outside of our disciplines?
