Product Description: TRUST IS HARD TO EARN and easy to lose. This is well-known. Public trust in research is decreasing - why? Is it a problem? Have ghostwriting, salami publications, misconduct and distrust something to do with this loss? Is the reason simply that contemporary science seems to focus on productivity more than creativity? From various perspectives the papers and presentations in this volume focus on the ways in which factors affecting distrust and trust, including criteria of quality, are identified, measured and dealt with by universities and other institutions...read more

This book presents original research results on the leading edge of chemistry research. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. Topics discussed include recent advances in rare earth doped lead-free oxyfluoride silicate glasses and glass-ceramics for optoelectronics and active fibre technology; supramolecular carriers for triclosan; a comparative method for evaluating the natural uranium isotopes 238U and 234U in waters; theoretical assessment of plasma gasification processes of low grade coal and biomass feedstock; potential applications of actuarial pension mathematics to chemical sciences; separation of XRD patterns to determine crystal structures of LiMnO2 showing anisotropic lattice strain as composites with chiral metal complexes; using folic acids to detect reactive oxygen species; surfactant-based extractions; evaluation of the possibility of using normalisation with cobalt in detection of anthropogenic heavy metals in sediments; effect of black chokeberry juice on diethylnitrosamine from precursors in in vitro experiments; the density functional theory investigations of the local structure of hydrated electron and di-electron; and carbonic anhydrase mediated biomimetic CO2 sequestration.

At the core of good research lies the careful design of experiments. However, all too often a successful design comes only after a painful trial-and-error process that wastes valuable time and resources.Now in a new edition, Experimental Design for the Life Sciences teaches today's students how to effectively design experiments, equipping them with the skills they need to become tomorrow's top researchers. Employing a refreshingly approachable and articulate style, the text explains the essential elements of experimental design in clear, practical terms, so that students can grasp and apply even the most challenging concepts, including power analysis and pseudoreplication. In addition, it emphasizes the interrelatedness of experimental design, statistics, and ethical considerations throughout. A broad range of examples--drawn from the primary literature and the authors' extensive personal experience--demonstrate the practical relevance of experimental design in real-life biological research.The only undergraduate text devoted to this topic, Experimental Design for the Life Sciences, Third Edition, demonstrates how good experimental design relies on clear thinking and biological understanding, not on mathematical or statistical complexity.Pedagogical Features* Self-test questions, with answers at the end of the book, reinforce essential facts and encourage students to check their understanding as they progress* Take-home messages throughout chapters focus students' attention on the principles that they must master* Coverage of ethical issues, flagged in the margins, raises awareness of this important aspect of the field
