    EQUIPPING SCIENCE FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

    Edited by John Irvine, Ben Martin, Dorothy Griffiths, Roel Gathier
    This major book presents not only a unique vision of the likely requirements for investment in research equipment during the coming decade but also valuable information on needs and priorities in a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from the physical and biological sciences to newly-instrumenting humanities fields such as archaeology. Particular attention is given to considering how these needs might be met cost-effectively by better planning and management of scientific resources – for example, increased sharing of costly equipment by researchers from different disciplines or institutions.

  3. The Sociology of the Sciences

    The Sociology of the Sciences

    Edited by Helga Nowotny, Klaus Taschwer
    The Sociology of the Sciences represents one of the most vivid fields in the social sciences today. From a former subfield of sociology, social studies of science and technology (STS) have transformed into a transdisciplinary field of research in its own right – reflecting the still growing dynamics of techno-science in modern societies. The two volume set, The Sociology of the Sciences, is an attempt to map out the broad range of contemporary studies covered in this transdisciplinary research field. The ten sections in the two volumes include selected articles from the most relevant areas of contemporary social studies of science, ranging from studies of scientific knowledge to science policy issues, from the gender-related questions in science to the relations between science and the public.
