Warren Petoskey Papers, 1873-2016

Description

Noted Native American writer, artisan, musician, and dancer Warren Petoskey came to understand that his clients often experienced residual effects from the American Indian boarding schools that many were forced to attend. This realization led Warren to found Dawnland Native Ministries in 1998; based near Petoskey, Michigan, this outreach program endeavors "to build bridges of understanding with all peoples regarding the damage done by America's boarding school policies and their effects on the current generations."

University Of Michigan: An Encyclopedic Survey, Bicentennial Edition

Description

In 1937, when the University observed the 100th anniversary of its re-establishment in Ann Arbor, the University Committee on Archives declared that “a treatment, in encyclopedic form, of the University's past and present accomplishments, by those most competent to chronicle them, would form a desirable and unique evidence of the progress of the University since its first establishment in 1817.”|This led to an extraordinary collective effort that produced some 400 individual articles on the University’s history. These were published in four volumes entitled The University of Michigan: An Encyclopedic Survey, appearing from 1942 to 1954. Updates of the entries for many University units were published in the 1970s. In recent years the entire work has been digitized and made available online.|In preparation for the University’s bicentennial in 2017, the University’s Committee on History and Traditions, the Bicentennial Planning Committee, and the Bentley Historical Library committed to updating the Encyclopedic Survey through the 2010s and to making it available in a new and easily navigated digital format.|The histories of the academic departments form the Survey’s nucleus. They comprise an essential source of institutional memory and a guide to research for U-M faculty, other scholars, students, alumni and other friends of the various departments.

Essential Science Indicators

Alternative Titles
InCites ESI
Description

Essential Science Indicators is a unique compilation of institutional research performance statistics and trends extrapolated from counts of articles published in scholarly journals and the citations to those articles.

Article counts for Essential Science Indicators are derived from 11,855 journals indexed in Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index only) over a 10-year period. Citation counts for these articles are derived from journals indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection (Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index. and Arts & Humanities Citation Index).

Each journal is assigned to one of 22 research fields. In ESI, a journal can be assigned to only one field.  Journals such as Science and Nature are categorized as multidisciplinary since they publish research in many different fields. As a result, individual papers published in these multidisciplinary journals are assigned to a field based on the representation of the cited journals. For example, if the majority of cited references in the paper are to neuroscience journals, the paper is then categorized as neuroscience.

Papers are defined as regular scientific articles and review articles . Letters to the editor, corrections, and abstracts are excluded.

The years shown in ESI reports are publication years, unless otherwise indicated. ESI indicators are calculated from 10 full years of data.

ESI is updated six times a year. The most recent update may add documents published in the previous year, in which case metrics based on the previous publication year may be adjusted.

Encyclopedia of the Mind

Description

It's hard to conceive of a topic of more broad and personal interest than the study of the mind. In addition to its traditional investigation by the disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience, the mind has also been a focus of study in the fields of philosophy, economics, anthropology, linguistics, computer science, molecular biology, education, and literature. In all these approaches, there is an almost universal fascination with how the mind works and how it affects our lives and our behavior. Studies of the mind and brain have crossed many exciting thresholds in recent years, and the study of mind now represents a thoroughly cross-disciplinary effort. Researchers from a wide range of disciplines seek answers to such questions as: What is mind? How does it operate? What is consciousness?

Encyclopedia of the Mind, produced by SAGE Reference, brings together scholars from the entire range of mind-related academic disciplines from across the arts and humanities, social sciences, life sciences, and computer science and engineering to explore the multidimensional nature of the human mind.
