The NCSU Libraries is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new resource: the Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness

http://catalog.lib.ncsu.edu/record/NCSU3768508


Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness

As the flagship publication for the Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, the Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness (JREE) publishes original articles from a multidisciplinary community of researchers who are committed to applying principles of scientific inquiry to the study of educational problems. Articles published in JREE should advance our knowledge of factors important for educational success and/or improve our ability to conduct further disciplined studies of pressing educational problems.

JREE welcomes manuscripts that fit into one of the following categories: 1) interventions and evaluation studies, and 2) methodological studies. The first category includes studies that focus on process and implementation and seek to demonstrate causal claims in educational research. To establish a stronger connection between scientific evidence and educational practice, studies submitted to JREE should focus on pressing problems found in classrooms and schools.

Studies that help advance our understanding and demonstrate effectiveness related to challenges in reading, mathematics education, and science education are especially welcome as are studies related to cognitive functions, social processes, organizational factors, and cultural features that mediate and/or moderate critical educational outcomes. On occasion, invited responses to JREE articles and rejoinders to those responses will be included in an issue.

http://catalog.lib.ncsu.edu/record/NCSU3744292


Education Finance & Policy

Ongoing public policy developments affecting educational institutions and systems present education policy makers, administrators, and researchers with new global challenges and opportunities. To aid in the deliberations, and help frame the intellectual discourse on education policy and practice, Education Finance and Policy promotes understanding of the means by which global resources can be justly generated and productively engaged to enhance human learning at all levels.

Topics explored in the journal include: school accountability; school choice; education standards; equity and adequacy in school finance; within- and across-school and district resource allocation; teacher compensation; training and labor markets; instructional policy; higher education productivity and finance; and special education.

The NCSU Libraries is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new resource: Oxford’s Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources

http://catalog.lib.ncsu.edu/record/NCSU3599489

DMLBS Logo

The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources is the key lexical reference work for anyone reading Medieval Latin texts produced in Britain or by British authors.

  • Covers the sixth to the sixteenth century, a longer period than any other dictionary of Medieval Latin available in print.
  • Sets out clearly for individual words the full range of meanings found in the medieval period and the kinds of linguistic contexts and works in which they appear, highlighting possible alternative meanings and allusions.
  • Illustrates every sense with contemporary example quotations.
  • Records the full range of attested variant spellings of words and provides helpful cross-references, making it particularly valuable for researchers working on Medieval Latin manuscript sources of all kinds and on documentary sources in particular.

The DMLBS is an essential companion to any collection of medieval Latin texts, including those in modern editions accompanied by facing translations, and an indispensable aid to reading the vast quantity of medieval texts and documents that are not available in translation. Because of its chronological coverage and overall completeness, it is also the single most helpful reference work for readers of texts in Medieval Latin produced elsewhere in Europe.

The Dictionary offers considerable assistance to readers who are less familiar with Latin in general or with the medieval varieties of the language in particular. Because of the tremendous importance of Latin in the middle ages as a language of literature, religion, science, and formal record not only in Britain but across Europe too, the dictionary is an important tool for scholars in a wide range of fields whose work brings them into contact of a less direct or obvious kind with the language. The study of literature, philosophy, theology, science, and many more fields in the middle ages — even when focused primarily on sources written not in Latin but in the everyday languages of the time — is illuminated by an awareness of the contemporary Latin material and the Dictionary makes this material much more accessible.
