Psychology

Emerging trends in the social and behavioral sciences : an interdisciplinary, searchable, and linkable resource

Description

"Each essay in this collection of over 400 is drawn from the core social and behavioral sciences disciplines of anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology and contains a summary of what is presently known about the topic and identifies promising areas for future research. Hyperlinks accompany each essay, which direct readers to other relevant essays inEmerging Trends; these essays present different aspects and points of view on the topic and often rely on different levels of analysis. The result is a unique tool for learning about developments in our fields, an intelligent, interdisciplinary, multi-dimensional, user-friendly, "smart" system of cross-referencing applied to important topics of study.

Emerging Trends will promote interdisciplinary and multi-layered awareness on key topics by directing readers’ attention to aspects of topics that readers will likely never have heard of or thought about (much less know how to find). To do this, dense layers of hyperlinks have been created, connecting each essay with others that focus on other facets of the topic, often written by authorities from different fields of study and disciplines. Readers are strongly urged to explore these hyperlinks in order to expand their own thinking about topics that interest them." from Book Home page
