Book Description :

This book presents a spatially-based multiple methods approach to research serving academic and organizational researchers from across a wide variety of disciplines. For many, consideration of spatial relationships is an important component of their research questions, including those who may not have yet recognized GIS as a valuable tool. The book will provide readers essential steps to conceptualize and implement research and analysis, develop meaningful quantitative and qualitative geographic results and to communicate their findings using the visualization capabilities of GIS to assist decision-makers and affect policy. Furthermore it offers researchers a deeper understanding of social, economic and environmental questions considering spatial relationships in their data.The broad subject area of the project is the integration of spatial analysis as a research methodology. More specifically the book provides practical guidance for the identification, collection and analysis of appropriate research data for analysis in an Esri/ArcGIS context without being specific to a particular version of the software. The objective is to present ArcGIS with an eye towards incorporating spatial analysis as a fundamental component of mixed methods research. Because GIS is, by nature, an integrative technology which can draw together multiple data sources via a common spatial attribute, it is a natural fit for mixed-methods research. GIS provides the researcher an unparalleled ability to enhance their research incorporating a geographic perspective.

Book Description :

The Netherlands first developed a policy on the compact city about twenty-five years ago, following the economic crises of the 1970s and the earlier policy of clustered dispersal. The four major Dutch cities in the western Randstad conurbation were then confronted with massive outflows of middle and higher-income residents. At the same time, there were new insights into the importance of strong cities in the emerging global network economy. Issues of rural sustainability, mobility, and quality of life were also reconsidered in relation to this urban agenda. It was against this background that a national compact city policy took shape, beginning in the mid-1980s. Now we must redefine that policy in response to globalization, information technology, economic change, and the growing importance of sustainable spatial development. This new context differs fundamentally from that of twenty-five years ago. Less financing is available, and time-tested business models are breaking down. European environmental regulations have become more rigid, all the most promising projects have already been carried out, the established roles of the public and private sectors have come into question, and there is often little if any cohesion. The articles in this collection take stock of the situation and explore a number of ways that a compact city policy can be meaningful and effective today. Contributors from the worlds of research, government, enterprise, and design propose new alliances that can enable these different sectors to achieve their goals in partnership.

Book Description :

Identity is one of the most extensively studied constructs in the social sciences. Yet, despite the wealth of findings across many disciplines, identity researchers remain divided over such enduring fundamental questions as: What exactly is identity, and how do identity processes function? Do people have a single identity or multiple identities? Is identity individually or collectively oriented? Personally or socially constructed? Stable or constantly in flux? The Handbook of Identity Theory and Research offers the rare opportunity to address the questions and reconcile these seeming contradictions, bringing unity and clarity to a diverse and fragmented literature. This exhaustive reference work emphasizes the depth and complexity of identity processes and domains and presents perspectives from many different theoretical schools and empirical approaches. Contributing authors provide perspectives from psychology (e.g., narrative, social identity theory, neo-Eriksonian) and from other disciplines (e.g., sociology, political science, ethnic studies); and the editors highlight the links between chapters that provide complementary insights on related subjects. In addition to covering identity processes and categories that are well-known to the field, the Handbook tackles many emerging issues, including: - Identity development among adopted persons. - Identity processes in interpersonal relationships. - Effects of globalization on cultural identity. - Transgender experience and identity. - Consumer identity and shopping behavior. - Social identity processes in xenophobia and genocide. The Handbook of Identity Theory and Research lends itself to a wealth of uses by scholars, clinicians, and graduate students across many disciplines, including social, developmental, and child/school psychology; human development and family studies; sociology; cultural anthropology; gender, ethnic, and communication studies; education; and counseling.

Book Description :

The Department of Defense (DOD) supports basic research to advance fundamental knowledge in fields important to national defense. Over the past six years, however, several groups have raised concern about whether the nature of DOD-funded basic research is changing. The concerns include these: Funds are being spent for research that does not fall under DOD's definition of basic research; reporting requirements have become cumbersome and onerous; and basic research is handled differently by the three services. To explore these concerns, the Congress directed DOD to request a study from the National Research Council (NRC) about the nature of basic research now being funded by the Department. Specifically the NRC was to determine if the programs in the DOD basic research portfolio are consistent with the DOD definition of basic research and with the characteristics associated with fundamental research.

Book Description :

Doing Practitioner Research Differently encourages those embarking on practitioner research to consider the validity of innovative methods and styles of reporting. The book looks at three methods of enquiry and reporting - visualisation, conversation and fictional writing. Using practitioners' own accounts and research reports as case studies, this book explores the reasons why some practitioners reject the traditional research methods. It looks at the challenges faced by these practitioners and the conditions in higher education that encourage or inhibit innovative practitioner research. The case studies used illustrate that there are modes of enquiry and reporting that can foster the development of professional thinking and practice.
