Global Future of Higher Education and the Academic Professio PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Global Future of Higher Education and the Academic Profession focuses on the all-important emerging BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) nations by analyzing the academic profession and particularly salaries and contracts. The professoriate is key to the success of any academic system, and this is the first book to carefully analyze academic systems and the academic profession. The academic profession must be adequately paid, and appointments to academic jobs must be based on merit and provide an effective career path for the 'best and brightest' to be attracted to the profession. The BRICs show a variety of approaches to academic careers-and none provide globally competitive salaries. China and Russia, in particular, pay academics poorly. Using purchasing power parity, this book is able to accurately compare the actual purchasing power of the academic profession. The book also analyzes how professors are appointed and promoted. While the BRICs may be emerging global economic powers, their academic systems still face significant challenges.

This book advances creative writing studies as a developing field of inquiry, scholarship, and research. It discusses the practice of creative writing studies, the establishment of a body of professional knowledge, and the goals and future direction of the discipline within the academy. This book also traces the development of creative writing studies; noting that as the new discipline matures - as it refers to evidence of its own research methodology and collective data, and locates its authority in its own scholarship - creative writing studies will bring even more meaning to the academy, its profession, and its student body.

Plant Disease Diagnosis : Recent Advances and Future Perspectives LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Plant diseases constitute one of the major causes of crop losses all over the world. Detection of diseases in plants is critical for sustainable agriculture. The unique feature of this book is the compilation of research papers and review articles written by internationally recognized plant pathologists and microbiologists. In this volume we describe modern and conventional techniques for the detection of plant pathogenic fungi, viruses, viroids, bacteria, mollicutes and nematodes. Future prospects of each diagnostic technique and current literature are also discussed in detail. It also compares the benefits and limitations of some potential techniques. This review should be of particular value to scientists in the developing world, who may not have ready access to the special journals and reports in which much of the research on diagnostic techniques has been documented. It is our hope that diagnosticians and research scientists will find this information useful as well as thought provoking.
