How Korean Students See Scientists: The Images of the Scientist.
Song, Jinwoong; Kim, Kwang-Suk
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n9 p957-77 Sep 1999
Describes an investigation of five aspects of Korean students' images of scientists: (1) mental image; (2) physical image; (3) source of image; (4) "scientists around us;" and (5) "my favorite scientist." Finds that Korean students' stereotypical views of scientists were influenced more by affective and ethical personal characteristics of scientists than by their cognitive abilities. Contains 40 references. (Author/WRM)
