Studies of Scientific Disciplines. An Annotated Bibliography.
Weisz, Diane; Kruytbosch, Carlos
Provided in this bibliography are annotated lists of social studies of science literature, arranged alphabetically by author in 13 disciplinary areas. These areas include astronomy; general biology; biochemistry and molecular biology; biomedicine; chemistry; earth and space sciences; economics; engineering; mathematics; physics; political science; psychology; and sociology. In addition, each area is cross-indexed by 23 topics of social and organizational interest, permitting users to make quick reference to the range of topics studied within a disciplinary area, as well as to the range of disciplines in which a topic has been explored. Index words in parentheses indicate the principal topics examined in each item. Each of the 285 annotations briefly describes the focus of the book or article and makes note of the data and methods used in the study. In cases where an item deals with more than one discipline, a full annotation appears only once, and subsequent entries refer back to the full annotation. The bibliography concludes with a short section of conceptual and methodological studies with general relevance to the study of disciplines. An index of topics, glossary, and a matrix which classifies the distribution of annotations by discipline and topic are provided at the end of the bibliography. (JN)
