Humanities researchers are less mandatory about the literature than scientists are.Specific of information retrieval in the humanities is the preeminence of books over journals as information sources. While the arts and humanities advocate numerous journals, books are yet prime sources of information. Meanwhile the Source Index (or author index) of A&HCI offers comprehensive bibliographical information around each item indexed, researchers ran into a unique problem in indexing the humanities literature which they had not faced in the sciences or social sciences
This book presents the development of theoretical and empirically applied citation_ based bibliometric indicators of scientific research performance and applies them to Iranian medical research. To address these shortcomings, two new practical measures (Indices) have been developed. The DSI supports individual subscription decisions with regard to the level of specialism of a journal within a particular discipline. DPI is a decision-making tool for libraries that indicates the proportion of all citations within a particular discipline that had been received by a particular journal.

For this reason, the book starts with a section on how to write a good standard research proposal. In the second section, the book discusses in detail the way in which a research project, dissertation or thesis must be outlined once the research proposal has been accepted. Chapter three looks specifically at a journal paper/article as another very important type of research paper. It gives a brief survey of important points to bear in mind when writing a journal article as well as the structure such a paper is expected to follow.

The work can also be useful as a reference source for medical students and researchers in bibliometrics and scholarly communications
Many academic libraries attempt to source their collections from all the publications available. However, librarians may fail in this attempt because of some economic factors that prevent them from building a comprehensive collection of materials. The increasing price of periodicals and books and the unchanged budget for inter-library loan have precluded librarians from providing their best reference service to users. This study makes a contribution in topping a list of core journals cited in Library and Information Science (LIS) dissertations. A core list is helpful for students to use as a guide when they carry out a literature review. The aim is to identify the characteristics of cited literature in Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) dissertations submitted to University of Malaya. This includes finding out the various type of information resources used in research projects as well as other main variables, such as: language distribution of cited documents, publication frequency, authorship patterns, country of publishing, subject areas, chronological distribution of total citation, core journal titles used in the field of LIS, etc.

Recently, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of regulations and laws that govern how organizations conduct business. The challenge with regulatory compliance lies not only in the sheer volume of existing laws and regulations, but also in the fact that it is very common to have multiple regulations with overlapping and sometimes conflicting provisions. This book investigates techniques and tools that could be used to manage the complexity of regulated compliance documents. The relationship between regulatory documents is typically represented in the form of a citation relationship, in which one law cites another law with the purpose of validating or enforcing a particular provision. The approach presented in this book is based on building legal citation graphs that can be used by analysts to navigate through the provisions of various interrelated laws in order to understand and analyze their contents and to uncover overlaps and possible conflicts among them.
A rapturous appreciation of pork crackling, a touching description of hungry London chimney sweeps, a discussion of the strange pleasure of eating pineapple and a meditation on the delights of Christmas feasting are just some of the subjects of these personal, playful writings from early nineteenth-century essayist Charles Lamb.

Filled with a sense of hunger, they are some of the most fascinating and nuanced works ever written about eating, drinking and appetite.

Tuberculosis (TB) is the major cause of death worldwide. The enormity of the problem has been further worsened by the emergence of multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains and the dual infection with HIV. A newly identified TB threat which leaves patients virtually untreatable using currently available anti-TB drugs is XDR-TB. Protein extracted from whole cell lysate (WCL) during late log growth phase often considered candidate components for diagnosis of Tuberculosis and vaccine.In any cell proteins are ultimately working moiety, therefore proteomic analysis and seroreactivity in relation to identify a molecule could be much informative. This study includes the analysis and comparison of whole cell lysate proteins of two clinical isolates with M. tuberculosis H37Rv strain and their reactivity for searching a immunodominant antigen. Present study suggest that current clinical isolate of M. tuberculosis might be valuable to characteristics some unique dominant targets for tuberculosis diagnosis and for vaccine candidate.

Project Analysis and Report The purpose of this phase is for each team to complete the project and produce a substantive team project report, and for each student to complete a comprehensive individual analysis report. These reports must be completed and approved by the advisor and one faculty reader before a student may participate in the oral examination and graduation. Timeline The timeline on the following page illustrates the process that would be followed to complete the Ed.D. degree in three-years. In order for a student to complete the program in three years, as shown on the timeline, he or she must meet all milestones at the times indicated on the timeline. Many students need to take more time to meet the milestones. Extending the milestones will extend the length of the program. For example, completing the management plan at the end of the second year will extend the program because of the time it will take to implement and complete the project. Students graduate when they complete all the requirements of the program and satisfy the graduate school review of those requirements.
This dissertation presents a comprehensive practice of quantitative approaches. The idea of the dissertation is taken from the field of psychology. Emotional intelligence competency is considered one of the most crucial components in ensuring effective leadership in school. People with excellent credentials are put in leadership position and fail because of the absence or presence of certain emotional elements. So, identify knowledge and practice of emotional intelligence competency of school heads for effective school headship was the solely purpose of the study. I believe this small attempt surely helps to unlock eye in new dimension of intelligence. Our behavior and leadership practices are the consequence of interface sandwiched between head and heart. This dissertation helps to comprehend the practice about this distress. In this schoolwork the five point Likert scale was used to collect information and analysis was made by using Mann -Whitney rank sum test, Spearman’s correlation and linear regression analysis. This dissertation specifically helps for those who are interested in psychological research and wants to travel around new idea using positivist approach.
