Can you recommend free journals for educational research, English language teaching (ELT), ESL, language education, and Identity Construction in Second Language Writing, without publication fees? But it should be an ISI or Scopus-indexed journal.
How shall the regions and limits of application of the Laws of Identity, Non-contradiction, and Excluded Middle be fixed?
Scientific, philosophical, social, and aesthetic advancements have continuously been made in epochal revolutions and minor changes within epochs. What has / have been the logical background spine behind these changes in terms of logical threshold revolutions during all these millennia?
I do not think that scientific, philosophical, and aesthetic revolutions have not used the foundations of ordinary logic. In this case, the old foundations of logic, especially the Laws of Identity, Non-contradiction, and Excluded Middle, have more or less been used all through these revolutions and changes – both theoretically and practically. The revolutionary achievements in all the human institutions have used them, let alone ordinary conversations and daily thoughts and feelings in human life.
But it is also a fact that time and again the new scientific, philosophical, and aesthetic revolutions have attempted to seek and create new forms of logic. These have been created and developed. This is why we have many forms of logic today.
But have they ever been able to overcome the Laws of Identity, Non-contradiction, and Excluded Middle? Even when the specific logic is considered counterfactual, non-causal, non-classically non-ordinary, etc., their specific foundations have been borne out through the use exclusively of the Laws of Identity, Non-contradiction, and Excluded Middle. This is because any statement, even if it yields only a truth probability, must be considered as true or false before approaching the next step to moving to conclusions.
How then shall the regions and limits of application of the Laws of Identity, Non-contradiction, and Excluded Middle be fixed?

In Nepal, there is a term called ' Brahmanism' which is considered to be an identity of the community of Brahman. No Brahman has yet accepted the concept of Brahmanism neither claim as an identity.
Thus, it is created outside of the community of Brahman and imposed to them as their identity.
Brahman are also called Khas-Arya and this term is written in the Constitution of Nepal which also seems baseless. Khas and Arya are different entities.
There are ethnic groups in Nepal which are created against the community of Khas-Arya. Khas-Arya community which was never owned and entertained - is constructed at outside of the community in order to validate other ethnic groups.
What is the nature of consciousness and how it arises from the physical processes of the brain?
Consciousness refers to our subjective experience of awareness, sensations, thoughts, and perceptions. It involves the integration of information from various sensory inputs and internal mental processes. Despite significant advancements in neuroscience and cognitive science, the exact nature of consciousness and how it arises from the physical processes of the brain are still subjects of ongoing investigation and debate.
Some of the key questions related to the nature of consciousness include:
- What is the relationship between the brain and consciousness?
- How does subjective experience emerge from neural activity?
- Can consciousness be explained solely by material processes, or does it involve non-physical aspects?
- Are there different levels or types of consciousness?
- What is the nature of self-awareness and the sense of personal identity?
Understanding consciousness has implications not only for neuroscience and cognitive science but also for philosophy, psychology, and even artificial intelligence. Exploring the nature of consciousness can potentially shed light on the fundamental nature of reality, the nature of the mind-body relationship, and our place in the universe.
I would like to have some recent (since 2018) academic sources that illustrate the theory of Aesthetics and how different societies have different perceptions of it. I am looking for Eastern and Western thoughts on it.
I would appreciate any reasonable suggestions in the field of identity modeling under martial law.
As you might have heard, Ukrainians are experiencing rather severe conditions as the war presses ahead. Under the given circumstances, the object of interest rests on the changes the Ukrainian Identity bears. By creating an international team, we try to investigate the influence of stress on Identity Reconstruction, taking into account Self-Directedness, Social Factors, Stages of Identity Development, etc.
Please, feel free to reach out to me to thrash out the possible ways of wrestling with this issue.
Does anyone know if there is an established convention or rule on the minimum percent identity cutoff for nucleotide sequence in order to infer sequence homology?
I am looking for pseudogenes and have found regions that show ~45% identity to the exons of my gene. Not to mention that they are in the correct order and syntenic region…
But presumably, if we put in enough spaces, we can align any two sequences... Is there minimum identity value where one can be confident that they are looking at truly homologous regions?
Any advice/opinion would be greatly appreciated!
I am starting my dissertation for an MA in Cultural History, Memory and Identity. I am interested in examining women perpetrators in the Third Reich; from denunciation to frontline killing. I am looking at a range of sources on women and genocide and female SS guards, but I'd really like to explore memoirs of these particular types of women.
Can anybody advise?
I am looking for cross-cultural studies on identity development. I have found various studies using the Utrecht-Management of Identity Commitments Scale. However, I struggle with finding any studies using the Dimensions of Identity Development Scale developed by Koen Luyckx. I've tried to find something in Google Scholar, but the outcomes of my research were poor. If you know about this kind of study, let me know.
I am currently working on the interrelatedness between the self and identity.
How is the self connected to identity? Can we talk about the self as a form of identity?
I am also working on the development of the self amid disease and pandemics.
What effects do pandemics and diseases have on the self?
Your views and opinions are welcome.
The Literature review on the matter is also most welcome.
Hey to all
I measured Identity on a single item based on the Likert scale:
"in what extent do you feel that the ??? Identity represents you?"
1- It does not represent me at all
7- represent in great extent
How can a new variable of 2 levels (high or low) be created based on a single item?
I have created and validated a Campus Climate Identity Survey, as part of my doctoral work at NYU dealing with my home institution and am now looking for collaborators. The survey is validated with the pilot and really designed as a way to get comprehensive data in all the schools in academic health science centers not just the medical school component. Are you looking to gain a comprehensive view of the plight of your staff, students, and faculty at an academic health science center, then I'd love to chat with you.
I need your help. I am currently working on the effect of our perception of time on our identity. The time of wars and persecutions seems to be too long, an endless time that can hinder people's self-awareness and prevent the development of their identity, making them go back to that time in the past when they enjoyed life.
Do you have any ideas about books that talk about psychological time? I have already read Bergson's work but I am looking for other references
J'ai besoin de votre aide. Je travaille actuellement sur l'effet de notre perception du temps sur notre identité. Le temps des guerres et des persécutions semble être trop long, un temps sans fin qui peut entraver notre conscience de soi et empêcher le développement de notre identité, nous poussons à revenir à ce temps du passé où la vie était plus agréable.
Avez-vous des idées sur les livres qui parlent du temps psychologique ? j'ai déjà lu le travail de Bergson mais je cherche d'autres références.
Ensemble docking allow to dock a single ligand or a ligand library against multiple conformations of a single receptor.
Now, imagine we have a group of proteins which are functionally conserved and share similar ligand/s. Moreover, they are highly similar in the structures (Identity rate in AA level is more than 90%) and almost a perfect superimposition of 3D structure can be made by different tools.
Docking analysis was performed for each protein solely and as expected the binding pocket and residues are similar.
Now here is the question: Can we perform Ensembled docking for this situation?
I am interested in collaborating on this project. Anyone interested in conducting this research collaboratively is welcome to do so.
Our lab is conducting a research project about Asian-American families. We are investigating Asian-American families' well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically, their experience of racial discrimination, their parent-child relationships, and their children's development. So far we manage to contact churches, organizations, and school communities, but we still need more Philippine and Korean teenagers (12-18 years old) and parents to participate. Any suggestions to help us recruit? I appreciate your help.
Identity definitions vary as people possess and project a multitude of identities (Tracey, 2004; Joseph, 2010) depending on an interlocutor in a discursive event and a given context.
I am interested in how identity is viewed and defined in YOUR sociocultural milieu/country?
Thank you very much for your reply,
The Effect of the Black Arts Movement on the Evolution ot Black Identity by Njeri Williams?
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, my project got postponed for one year. My sociolinguistic research focus is on face to face\focused group interviews to examine identity construction + accent\sound production. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll manage to conduct face-to-face interviews anytime soon (apparently COVID 19 restrictions is still developing) and postponing my project is no longer an option. So, I intend to replace face-to-face interviews with online interviews. I'm looking for recent studies that used online interviews - I hope you can recommend some.
Thanks in advance!
Hello, I'm trying to find a model that describes how self-efficacy can directly influence changes in identity, based on the self-concept theory. So far, I've only found a hint to such a relationship in Gecas (1982): "In experience these two aspects of the self-concept [i.e. identity and self-evaluation (consisting of self-efficacy & self-worth)] are closely interrelated: Self-evaluations are typically based on substantive aspects of self-concept, and identities typically have evaluative component" (p. 4).
So it'll be great if you can suggest a model explaining the relationship between self-efficacy and identity, or suggest an article with possible leads to such a model.

We live in a time of great technological progress. Every aspect of our lives is changing. Humanities' scientific and R&D sectors are rapidly developing new technologies and changing as we adapt. The concept of Human, Human Identity and Human Nature is renewing. What's your place in all that and how can you be part of a technological ascendance?
Recently, I have modeled a hypothetical protein (500 AA) using Modeller 10,
Not much work has been reported about this protein, the best template showed query cover (33%) and 21 percent Identity, DOPE score=-39229.25391, GA341 score=0.99840,
How should I proceed with this? Modeler user guide suggests that 25% similarly is fine unless it is less than 100 residues. My query sequence is more than 400 residues and it's 33% similar to the template.
What are the most current security related research topics on cloud-based identity & access management system?
I will be very grateful for the suggestions on most current topics that deals with security issues.
I need some help in locating different theories that explicitly distinguish between how a person perceives her-/himself and how others see that person. Of course, Social Identity Theory refers to something quite similar to this as the ingroup–outgroup distinction. Côté and Levine1 talk about the person's subjective experience of his/her identities versus the objective identities as defined by others who observe that person.
- Are there any other theories that distinguish between internal and external perspectives/aspects of identity?
- Any info or comments on this distinction would be most welcome.

I'm having a trouble with with a matrix Z s.t. A*Z = Identity matrix, given a known A that can be non-invertible. Is there a way to approximate Z?
As we know $I A=A$, where $A$ is a two dimensional matrix of order n and $I$ is the two dimensional identity matrix of order n, which contains 1 as diagonal positions and zero otherwise.
If we extend this concept to the case of 4-dimension, then how we explicitly express the corresponding Identity matrix ?
I am new with Winnicott's concept of "true self" and "false self". So I wonder if there are ways to find the specific direction, in which a human should change, while moving from the current "false identity" to an assumed, but indefinite "genuine identity"?
Because I got the impression these ways have nor been actually defined, even theoretically. If I am right, was this gap in the theory ever criticized in the literature?
How are these literary formulations themselves being reshaped along a sectarian/secular divide? In what capacity can nonviolent resistance through art combat sectarian violence on the ground?
I am interested to conduct research about investigating the role of Reflective Practice in optimizing EFL Teacher's Identity. What are the suitable resources for me? and How should I use in designing my project in terms of researcher's viewpoint?
I am preparing a Post-Doc project about the identity of Islamist Extremists. In this regard, is there any book (s) from Islamist extremists that can be analyzed by the methodology of discourse analysis and/or content analysis?
I want to get my Ph.D. in social movements and protest politics in Pakistan. Are there authoritative research books/articles written on the history of social movements and protest politics in Pakistan?
After a month of search, I couldn't find a single book, though there are several research articles written on the topic but these are just case studies of some events.
Is there any theoretical work done or going on in the field?
If I’m looking at language variation, and expecting a gender difference between ‘style’ and ‘content’, and how does that interact with different meanings of a specific terms used by male or female? i.e. one would be more content-ful than the other?
Research in "Discourse Analysis of Identity Reflection in Mass Media" will be quite beneficial for me. Any Identity of Any Nation/Nationality.
Here is a big question about identity authentication: I came across a wacky article that reports about the scary plan to fuse physical-, biological and digital identity into one: https://summit.news/2020/11/16/klaus-schwab-great-reset-will-lead-to-a-fusion-of-our-physical-digital-and-biological-identity/
First I thought that beats completely my own research work into multi-factor identity authentication as per the 2 papers linked to below:
Conference Paper Mapping Requirements Specifications into a Formalized Blockc...
Here is also a link to a very nice PhD thesis where those 2 papers linked to above form Chapter 4 (just to understand the context):
Now I realise there is no contradiction in the vision and the published work at all. Thus, my concrete question pertains to how the physical- and biological factors could be integrated in addition to digital aspects into a multi-factor identity authentication protocol such as Authcoin. Does anybody have an answer to this question? May I also add here this Microsoft patent for good measure that wants to merge the concept of blockchains with the human body as well?
This really brings together quite an amazing picture about what is possible in the future. My question is how all of that can be done concretely beyond some wacky and entertaining conspiracy visions?
One of the core functions of a federal state is to create a nation-state out her heterogeneous population while preserving/ respecting their diverse identities. Identities could be describe as the cultural, philosophical, religious, ethnic, geographical, racial or social attachments
Identity is a complicated state of human existence, many issues participate in creating it. Cultures, languages, gender, geography and etc.language is a way to distinguish one’s national and cultural identity, but also there are many the speak different language from their actual cultural and national identity.
I found this forum while looking for good sociologic theories on identity, so I hope its okay to ask this question here. If it isnt just remove me :D
Do you know any good books on the balance of ones on identity or rather the multitude of ones identities? How we balance those identities. How one can be authentic to oneselfs "true" identity maybe or if such a things as a true identity really exists. I am especially interested in our everyday lifes here, problems such as trying to become one specific person, as can be seen in the movies, come to mind. The conflict of feeling "kind of fake" when acting different in all kinds of settings.
I kind of wonder if we often get lost in our search for our one true identity. I feel like we are told that a strong person always has the same identity. But is that really true?
I try to make a model with MODELLER software and I decide to use multiple template modeling method. Two template structure I choose for my work, have similar Identity percentage (42.54% and 42.27%), identical coverage, different scores (583 and 566) and different resolution (2.25 and 1.55 Angstrom). I`m confused which one is better for choosing main template: score or structure resolution.
I am working on Writer Identity and have selected these three Macro features to analyse students' writing. The micro features as I have read in different studies may be used are grammar and vocabulary for textual analysis. Since this is my first experience with qualitative study and discourse analysis and I am a novice researcher I dont know how to go about it? I have read a lot but even then not able to decide whether what I am doing is correct or not. Your expert opinions may help me with my confusion,
I am preparing research with German patients with CHD and would like to include a Questionnaire on Illness Identity. The best validated seems to be the one by Oris et al. (2016). Does anyone know of a German version of this questionnaire?
I am considering a hypo-egoic mindset (e.g. Leary & Terry, 2012) to mediate the effects of mindfulness meditation on a cognitive outcome. Simply using a mindfulness scale seems insufficient to me, because a hypo-egoic mindset captures more than any existing conceptualization of mindfulness.
The conceptually most near scale that I´ve found is the Quiet Ego Scale (Wayment, Bauer & Sylaska, 2015), but it doesn´t really fit my purpose for several reasons. Particularly, the growth subscale is contrary to the present-focused quality of a hypo-egoic mindset.
I would be very grateful, if you have any suggestions :)

We invite you to participate in our session. This session wishes to address approaches and interpretations that determine in what ways megaliths & earthworks first became phenomena in particular regions and/or why they didn´t. Connected to this is whether or not people saw themselves as affiliated groups. Indeed, we also want to know why some regions chose one of these phenomenon and not the other within the same temporal span, or gave one precedence over the other. The building of megalithic monuments is a worldwide, time-transcending phenomenon, hundreds of thousands were erected across the World, with some places like the Korean Peninsula holding about 30,000 dolmens. The fact that they still exist in situ, highlights their past and continued relevance in the Cultural Landscape today; it also highlights their on-going collective identities. A similar story is attached to earthworks like mounds, ditches, embankments and pathways and their combinations. Megaliths & earthworks are clearly a dominant form for creating a materiality of social & spiritual engagement across the World. Is it possible that similar material practices mean shared worlds in some regions, and how might we differentiate between this and co-vergent evolution? As these monuments continued to develop through time, it is possible that so too did their meaning(s). Or is this rationale only an assumption, and indeed rather misguided? With such deliberations, this session, then, also wishes to see evidence that might answer this for us, too, or indeed provide evidence for the stability of a cultural practices, meaning and identity through time. Perhaps there is macro and micro evidence that displays stability but the micro reveals the forms of change within local communities. We are seeking works that present ideas related to these themes and which seek to answer questions such as these, or indeed, by default, have done so.
Keywords: Megaliths, Earthworks, Cultural Landscapes, Social engagement, Shared Worlds

Regarding the Internet protocol security (IPsec) and Host Identity Protocol (HIP), whatis the best security solution to use in IoT based IP-enabled WSNs ?
I would be interested in resources that pertain to how identity or the different roles we possess in dance making (dancer, teacher, spectator, mentor, etc.) influence creative processes in creating choreography. I am particularly interested in social dance, but any dance style examined with this research question in mind is warmly welcomed!
Thank you in advance!
I am using stress and self esteem as two mediators to study the relationship between parenting styles and vocational identity statuses.
After giving my presentation on Dyslexia, Identity and Academic Writing Development at the EATAW conference in Sweden, I have been invited to present my research at a conference in USA by the CCCC, approximately £1,500 costs. As an independent researcher, and not being attached to a university, I find it difficult to fit into many of the funding structures. I'm also looking for someone interested in working me with my research, who is currently getting funding they could share with me. I'm dyslexic and I am interested in contributing the dyslexic voice to research on dyslexic scholars and students in higher education contexts. My focus in development of academic writing. Thanks, Aileen
My research team is debating whether a socially-constructed identity can serve as the shared object in an activity system, according to third generation cultural historical activity theory (Engestrom, 1987). Despite having examples of the use of non-physical objects (e.g., mental constructs) being used as objects in the literature, there are those who feel identity cannot be an object. I disagree and am looking for research that has used identity as the object of an activity system to support my claims.
I like to run a GEE as I have panel data of movement behaviour of people (per person I have multiple trips, for example the detour ratio). I like to estimate the effects of the direct distance on the detour ratio, while taking into account that there might be differences between first trip .. fourth trip -and so on.
The problem is that detour ratio is often 0, and in a few cases it can be very high, thus a tweedie distribution is the most appropriate to use. To start I used a Normal distribution with Identity function, which gave results (but as expected, not very good ones).
However, I receive an error when I use the tweedie distribution: "There is at least one invalid case in the last iteration. A case is invalid if there are errors in computing the inverse identity link function, the log-likelihood, the gradient, or the Hessian matrix in the iterative process. Only the iteration history is displayed."
Is there somebody with experience in GEE, tweedie distribution, and SPSS? Any tips would be of great help!
The current climate protests are planned for at least 107 countries this friday (24.5). My research team in planning on doing ethnographical observations and interviews at the demonstrations in Oslo, Norway. Is anyone else looking at this worldwide phenomenon?
If so, what is your focus? Would love to discuss methodologies used to investigate this!
We come from cultural, and community psychology, so thats broadly the kind of focus we would use. Planning a mixed-methods project.
What kind of measurements would you recommend to assess attutides towards time perspective and it's richness?
I have whole genome data in fasta format, and the gene/protein sequences of the target enzymes. I've tried BLAST for 2 sequences, but the results are strange, possibly because the whole genome sequence is too long as compared with the target gene? The Max Score is 37.4, Total Score is 1811, Query Cover is 45%, E value is 0.013, Identity is 92%, but basically what occurred was many short alignments along the genome, that do not seem to indicate the presence of the gene. How do people generally search for a gene in a genome, and how do you evaluate BLAST results? Isn't there a better method?
Does anyone knows any publication about serial killer suffering of Dissociative Identity Disorder ?
Quelqu'un connait-il des publications concernant un ou plusieurs cas de meurtres en série commis par quelqu'un porteur d'un trouble dissociatif de l'identité ?
Colleagues from the United States: Due to the wide geographical area of the United States with the cultural diversity that exists in each state in addition to the local immigrants' cultures, do you ever experience a sense of estrangement or disconnect with locations, cultures or identities in your country?
Or does the "melting pot" idea truly apply here?
Thanks for basing your answer on what you "feel" or have experienced regardless of the dogmatic assertions of politics.
Thank you for your feedback!
- Are there places in the world where DID is integrated into culture (e.g. hmong shamanism) or appears in folklore?
- What are some places that are better and that are worse at recognizing DID?
- Does the whole world use the DES?
- When DID is diagnosed, what are the treatments in places other than America/Europe?
I am trying to find some literature on the relation between consumption, identity and migration in order to improve a research proposal. So, I would like to ask, does anyone have any suggestions regarding the effects of migration on identity through consumption? Is there any suggestion or any research on that issue?
Age determination of unknown human bodies is important in the setting of a crime investigation or a mass disaster because the age at death, birth date, and year of death as well as gender can guide investigators to the correct identity among a large number of possible matches.
Do you think that this time can be extracted using the ratio of decay of radioactive carbon that turns nitrogen after death?
The first high-level cultural magazine in Algeria, defining a new modern identity for Algerian culture, breaking off with colonization subculture, claiming for a Berberian culture's recognition but keeping on with the French language, mixed up with Arab texts. I really wish this kind of initiatives may prosper in all ex-colonies worldwide. Thanks to the courageous promoters, but I'm sure it will trigger more projects that style.
-Selfreference can be distinguished between incomplete and complete. Incomplete selfreference is for instance: you wash your own hands. Complete selfreference is hardly possible: how can you e.g. wash your own self?
-Identity between the observer and the observed is artistic: e.g. to observe the flow of river from a bank; but you might be the flowing river itself! (which is hardly possible!).
-Thanks for your reaction/feedback!
I need some background reading for Israel Palestine conflict, on the lines of identity crisis. Doing a comparative research for on Identity and Language issues Thank you.
Are the formation of alters in the mind of a person living with DID formed only by an emotional phenomenon, or is there brain research which shows how separated ego states can form? What, if any, research is currently being conducted on this subject?
I want to identify the species of unknown sequences (whole genome sequences) when I Blast them, I got results like Identity percentage of 99%, E-value: 0 but with a query coverage of 85-88%. What does the query coverage value indicate?
Could you advise some nearest conferences that focus on identity formation and transition to adulthood issues?
Thank you in advance.
I'd like to know your opinions on identifying fungal DNA sequences using the BLASTn with regards to Max Score, Total Score, Query Cover, E-value, and Identity match %? What are common shortcomings of these categories?
One mycorrhizal study I'm reading selected their results from percentages Query-Cover, and Identity that equaled or surpassed 80%. Do these values follow the literature's general consensus (if there is one) on the matter?
Would thresholds differ (i.e., broaden or narrow) if the sequence best matched cryptic and/or uncultured taxa?
If I have the peptide sequence and uses the BASTp in the NCBI, five columns appear Max score, total score, Query cover, E value, Identity. How can I know if this peptide is unique to a the whole group of proteins or unique to a specific protein?
