Special Issue: Australian Fashion Perspectives In recent years, the topic of fashion and dress has exploded on the international academic stage. Australia has not been immune to this trend and the study of fashion and dress has proliferated across the country in many disciplines and fields of study. This issue pays tribute to the growth of fashion theory in Australia by presenting a range of perspectives on fashion and dress from Downunder. All but one of the contributors research fashion in Australia while the outrider, Alison Goodrum, has explored identities about nationalism and dress in her research on the marketing of British fashion in the global marketplace. The focus of this special issue is the distinctiveness of Australian fashion perspectives in contemporary research projects especially concerning the question of cultural identity and the place of fashion and dress Downunder in the global context. The papers were first presented at the Fashion and Dress in Unaustralia Workshop as part of the Cultural Studies of Australia Annual Conference, Unaustralia, held at the University of Canberra in December 2006. The theme of the conference drew on popular debates about national identity and, concomitantly about events and phenomena that were derided as being 'Unaustralian'. The fashion and dress workshop brought together fashion researchers exploring a range of topics: trends in fashion and dress in Australia; body-clothing relations; Australian fashion and dress in the global context; the politics of fashion and dress; and issues of design, production and consumption. Selected papers from the workshop presented here examine the resonance of cultural identity in Australian fashion, how it is represented, produced and marketed.

Citation Analysis in Research Evaluation

This book is written for members of the scholarly research community, and for persons involved in research evaluation and research policy. More specifically, it is directed towards the following four main groups of readers: – All scientists and scholars who have been or will be subjected to a quantitative assessment of research performance using citation analysis. – Research policy makers and managers who wish to become conversant with the basic features of citation analysis, and about its potentialities and limitations. – Members of peer review committees and other evaluators, who consider the use of citation analysis as a tool in their assessments. – Practitioners and students in the field of quantitative science and technology studies, informetrics, and library and information science. Citation analysis involves the construction and application of a series of indicators of the ‘impact’, ‘influence’ or ‘quality’ of scholarly work, derived from citation data, i.e. data on references cited in footnotes or bibliographies of scholarly research publications. Such indicators are applied both in the study of scholarly communication and in the assessment of research performance. The term ‘scholarly’ comprises all domains of science and scholarship, including not only those fields that are normally denoted as science – the natural and life sciences, mathematical and technical sciences – but also social sciences and humanities.

Digital Scholarship in the Tenure, Promotion, and Review Process

To receive tenure college and university professors have long been required to write scholarly monographs or articles, engage in serious research, and teach effectively. In recent years, however, the emergence of digital scholarship has revolutionized -- and complicated -- the picture in unexpected ways as new electronic media have enabled academics to communicate scholarly material in innovative formats such as websites, PowerPoint presentations, CD-ROMs, and virtual reality tours. Despite this growing output of sophisticated digital scholarship, there has been little attempt to set standards, define basic issues and concepts, or integrate electronic scholarship into the tenure debate. This collection of cutting-edge articles marks the first effort to evaluate the place of digital scholarship in the tenure, promotion, and review process. As a primer aimed at scholars, faculty members, and department chairs in the humanities, social sciences, and other fields, as well as deans, provosts, and university administrators, this collection examines the evolution of nontraditional scholarship, analyzes the various formats, and suggests guidelines for assessment on a scholarly level. It also examines the impact of digital scholarship in the classroom and academy and explores new directions for the future. This book will help shape policy in the murky world of tenure review and become a point of reference for scholars and administrators everywhere.
