Historians, archivists and other researchers got in touch with tales of their archival finds and bizarre research moments. These ranged from the quirky to the disturbing to the profound.
‘Hustle culture’ is so pervasive in U.S. society that not even the coronavirus pandemic could shake the urge to prioritize productivity.
After 11 years of Excellence in Research for Australia, the time and costs for universities and the value it creates for other sectors (none of which made submissions to a recent review) are unknown.
More funding is needed to galvanise
Nigeria’s health system as medical research is not well funded.
Some of the climate changes will be irreversible for millennia. But some can be slowed and even stopped if countries quickly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, including from burning fossil fuels.
Researchers can refer to the “Handbook for Children’s Participation in Research in Indonesia” to design appropriate and ethical methods of child participatory research.
These international climate assessments are used by governments worldwide as they weigh future risks and climate policies.
This kind of research, with consistent data collection at the same locations over time, helps support global understanding of climate change.
Children’s meaningful participation is important because their needs and potential will be fulfilled when adults understand their position and listen to their voices and experiences.
History isn’t just learning facts. Students learn about the past by researching information and synthesising it to form an evidence-based argument. This skill is useful for a range of careers.
Historically, research has been imposed upon Indigenous people, instead of conducted with them. This is an exploration of more collaborative ways to research when working with Indigenous communities.
The results of Foote’s simple experiments were confirmed through hundreds of tests by scientists in the US and Europe. It happened more than a century ago.
New research found that smoke from the Camp Fire in Paradise, California, carried high concentrations of lead. An environmental toxicologist explains what else you’re breathing and how to stay safe.
It’s easy to assume that the practice has few, if any, downsides. But a new study explored some of its social repercussions.
Summer 2021 is too soon for southern-based researchers and travellers to return to northern, Indigenous communities in the wake of COVID-19, for research fieldwork or leisure.
A new study finds that the feeling is pervasive – and can change the way trips are planned and how money is spent.
While past studies have placed the proportion of child-free American adults at somewhere between 2% and 9%, a study found that in Michigan, over 1 in 4 adults don’t want kids.
We need more research and research capacity that’s better suited to current housing challenges. We must inform housing providers and policy-makers to provide solutions and evaluate those solutions.
We must recognize and understand the harms that malnutrition and nutrition experiments on Indigenous people caused and the legacy they have left.
The lack of dedicated funding and support for research commercialisation, on top of the other obstacles academics face, means Australia’s poor performance is no mystery.
