Scholarship in Psychology: The Advantages of an Expanded Vision.
Peterson, Roger L.; Trierweiler, Steven J.
American Psychologist, v54 n5 p350-55 May 1999
D. F. Halpern and her colleagues criticize overly narrow scholarship and examine the economics of scholarship and the criteria for evaluation. Psychology needs a historically grounded, open-minded, and theoretically sophisticated view of scholarship that emphasizes the responsibilities of educational institutions in meeting the needs of society.
