Interdisciplinary Research: Are We Asking the Right Questions in Legal Research?

LLcia Vicente, HanssW. Micklitz
2015 Social Science Research Network  
Legal research and legal writing are often informed by preconceptions closely tied to mainstream legal assumptions.  ...  Asking the right questions is a much needed exercise to expose ideological and methodological preconceptions in legal research.  ...  This allows for emergence of a different path of questioning and reasoning, and for new avenues of research.  ...

Are We Going in the Right Direction? Concerns about School Counseling

Summer M. Reiner, Thomas J. Hernandez
2013 Michigan Journal of Counseling Research Theory and Practice  
Rather, personal/social and career development are the areas that school counselors should seek to impact. In addition, school counselors are principally counselors and not educators.  ...  We make two main points. First, academic achievement is not the most important domain for the school counselor to place their focus.  ...  While we are not saying that social workers not be staffed in schools, we are arguing that they should not be replacing school counselors; both school counselors and social workers support the mental health  ...

Veteran mental health services in the UK: Are we headed in the right direction?

Deirdre Macmanus, Simon Wessely
2013 Journal of Mental Health  
With this in mind, and in light of government money for Veteran Mental Healthcare that is ring-fenced from the rest of the NHS budget, are we set on a political pathway toward a system of separate veteran  ...  The fact that specific provision seems to be limited to prosthetics and mental health, means we are a long way from a specific veteran healthcare system as exists in the US, or even a specific mental healthcare  ...

Automated delineation of radiotherapy volumes: are we going in the right direction?

G A Whitfield, P Price, G J Price, C J Moore
2013 British Journal of Radiology  
In this article we suggest that current methods are fundamentally limited by their lack of ability to incorporate essential human clinical decision-making into the underlying models.  ...  We conclude that methods need to be developed to take account of the clinician's expertise and honed visual processing capabilities as much as the underlying, clinically meaningful information content  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Dr Matuszewski's group in the Applied Digital Signal and Image Processing laboratory at the University of Central Lancashire for supplying early versions of GeoCut and GeoCut3D  ...
