Peer Review and the Ex Ante Assessment of Societal Impacts

Date: 2011
Creator: Holbrook, J. Britt & Frodeman, Robert
Description: This article discusses peer review. Funding agencies and research councils around the world rely on peer review to assess the potential impacts of proposed research.

In this paper the authors survey the state of the art and discuss some of the conceptual questions that arise in using ex ante peer review to assess the societal impact of scientific research.

A New Philosophy for the 21st Century

A New Philosophy for the 21st Century

Date: December 11, 2011
Creator: Briggle, Adam & Frodeman, Robert
Description: This article discusses a new philosophy for the 21st century. The authors have devoted their lives to philosophy. They want the field to survive and, if possible, prosper. But it is increasingly doubtful that academic philosophy can thrive in an era of declining budgets, soaring debts, antipathy to tax increases, and new technologies such as distance education. Of course, philosophy is secure at America's elite universities. But what of the vast number of universities whose future is tied to the decisions of state legislatures or other financial conditions?
