    Demand for Latin translations grew for example, from the Toledo School of Translators ; western Europeans began collecting texts written not only in Latin, but also Latin translations from Greek, Arabic, and Hebrew. This was based on a theorem that the orbital periods of the planets are longer as their orbs are farther from the centre of motion, which he found not to agree with Ptolemy's model. The subsequent discussions prompted him to think about the possibilities for publishing work in the biomedical sciences on the Internet, recognizing that the large size of our field and its many cultural differences from physics would probably require other kinds of models than the one the physicists had used. These so-called high throughput arrays have revolutionized the practice of molecular biology, and Pat has been justly honored for his imaginative work in a variety of ways.

    But we are now living in a very different world. Admissions panels or committees will always include at least one member of academic staff who has undertaken appropriate training. Some of these concerns were answerable; others led me to modify the proposal in style or substance. Only a few of the most committed signatories and, of course, those of us who wrote it felt obliged to honor their commitment to the letter.

    I searched PubMed and found only the authors and title, not even an abstract. They were mainly speculators or theoristsparticularly interested in astronomy. This sort of nonlinear reading reduces comprehension and actually makes it more difficult to focus the next time you sit down with a longer piece of text. One night, preparing for a class on the history of modern cancer research, I tried to get an electronic copy of the paper in Nature that describes our discovery of the c-src gene18 the work that was cited as the basis for our Nobel Prize in I did, of course, recognize the enormous significance that journals have in the lives of all scientists.

Early cultures Main article: History of science in early cultures Clay models of animal livers dating between the nineteenth and eighteenth centuries BCE, found in the royal palace in Mari, Syria Neither the words nor the concepts "science" and "nature" were part of the conceptual landscape in the ancient near east.

One use is by older people who, in some cases where they would use the classic ellipsis, use commas instead. Reading in print helps with comprehension. By doing so, the brain can reengage with linear reading. In response to this ineffective showing, in a coalition of concerned members of Congress, librarians, open access publishers including PLoSand some scientific leaders worked to put a stronger policy in place, one that would mandate the deposition of all reports of NIH-funded research in PubMed Central.

The general movement toward public access is also likely to increase the attractions of true open access journals, which routinely place their papers in a digital public library at the time of publication.

In addition, those who are privileged to work at institutions that have paid for subscriptions to the journals in which desired articles appeared can be linked to those journals through their institutional libraries and print out the full texts, if they exist in a digital form.

Some of these concerns were answerable; others led me to modify the proposal in style or substance. And scientists would appreciate the enhanced access that others would have to their work and that they would have to the work of others.

Many Syriac translations were done by groups such as the Nestorians and Monophysites. Do you think older, or less online, people can get to grips with the new rules? They said I was demeaning their past and current efforts to improve publication practices and threatening to undermine their means of support for other beneficial activities.

Under these circumstances, faced with the need to read selectively, we have all sought ways to improve the odds of reading productively. Until the start ofaccess to the full text was possible only if the user had a personal subscription or worked at an institution that subscribed to the journal that published the article.

Computer-based resources for teaching and learning science are incorporated throughout this book, and teachers who desire additional resources will find them on the free companion website, sciencesourcebook.

An experiment in this period would be understood as a careful process of observing, describing, and classifying. Societies and academies were also the backbone of the maturation of the scientific profession. In particular, I remain deeply engaged in the oversight of an organization called Public Library of Science PLoSa thriving open access publishing group that three of us founded more than seven years ago.

They have been employed in whole-group settings, in individual and small group work, as homework or extra-credit assignments, and to launch independent research projects. At the same time, the structure of the atom and its nucleus was discovered, leading to the release of " atomic energy " nuclear power.

The costs of building and maintaining the electronic platform and software would be paid by the NIH, but the costs of reviewing, editing, and publishing would be covered by the editorial boards and the organizations that assembled them.

Aristotle maintained that man knows a thing scientifically "when he possesses a conviction arrived at in a certain way, and when the first principles on which that conviction rests are known to him with certainty". From the perspective of funding agencies, such costs are reasonable and necessary.

Slow-reading advocates recommend at least 30 to 45 minutes of daily reading away from the distractions of modern technology. It then seems to have jumped the shark into parody form.
