  • The ASEAN Research Landscape

    This report provides an overview of the level of diversity between the ASEAN nations in terms of research output, impact and innovation. The research output and impact of this region as a single entitity is put into context and comparison with global research leaders such as the USA and European Union (EU). As research gets increasingly collaborative accross borders, this report also provides an overview of collaboration patterns both among the ASEAN nations and between the region and the global community

  • Developing a strategy for research management and evaluation in ASEAN

    In an increasingly competitive research landscape, it has become more important for research administrators to make informed decisions and support research initiatives with a comprehensive view of activities, performance and resources. This report summarizes the discussion and some best practices in research management and evaluation shared by research administrators and officials, faculty and department heads, and programme investigators during the Thomson Reuters Executive Roundtable – ASEAN held earlier in Singapore.

Description

Science is a way of knowing about the world. At once a process, a product, and an institution, science enables people to both engage in the construction of new knowledge as well as use information to achieve desired ends. Access to science—whether using knowledge or creating it—necessitates some level of familiarity with the enterprise and practice of science: we refer to this as science literacy.

Science literacy is desirable not only for individuals, but also for the health and well- being of communities and society. More than just basic knowledge of science facts, contemporary definitions of science literacy have expanded to include understandings of scientific processes and practices, familiarity with how science and scientists work, a capacity to weigh and evaluate the products of science, and an ability to engage in civic decisions about the value of science. Although science literacy has traditionally been seen as the responsibility of individuals, individuals are nested within communities that are nested within societies—and, as a result, individual science literacy is limited or enhanced by the circumstances of that nesting.

Science Literacy studies the role of science literacy in public support of science. This report synthesizes the available research literature on science literacy, makes recommendations on the need to improve the understanding of science and scientific research in the United States, and considers the relationship between scientific literacy and support for and use of science and research.
