Cómo publicar información científica en Inglés: prácticas, caminos y potencialidades



 Publishing Research in English as an Additional Language: Practices, Pathways and Potentials, . [e-Book]  Adelaide: University of Adelaide Press 2017

Texto completo

Many universities worldwide now require established and novice scholars, as well as PhD students, to publish in English in international journals. This growing trend gives rise to multiple interrelated questions, which this volume seeks to address through the perspectives of a group of researchers and practitioners who met in Coimbra, Portugal in 2015 for the PRISEAL and MET conferences. The volume offers truly global coverage, with chapters focusing on vastly different geo-social areas, and disciplines from the humanities to the hard sciences. It will be of interest to applied linguists, particularly those working in the area of English for Research Publication Purposes, and to language professionals working in research writing support, research supervision and academic publishing, as well as to journal editors and managers

ODLIS: Diccionario en línea de Biblioteconomía y Documentación

Texto completo

Lo que comenzó en 1994 como un folleto de cinco páginas, Online Dictionary of Library and Information Science pronto se fue ampliado y convertido a formato electrónico para su instalación en el sitio Web de la Biblioteca de la Universidad Estatal de Connecticut, donde es muy solicitado por profesionales y estudiantes de las bibliotecas. Ahora disponible por primera vez en la versión impresa, el diccionario es el recurso más completo y confiable en inglés sobre la terminología utilizada en todo tipo de bibliotecas. Con más de 4.000 términos y referencias cruzadas el contenido del Diccionario ha sido cuidadosamente seleccionado e incluye términos de la edición, la imprenta, la literatura y la informática donde, a juicio del autor, son relevantes tanto para profesionales de la biblioteca y laicos. El criterio principal para incluir un nuevo término es si es razonable esperar que los profesionales de las bibliotecas y de las ciencias de la información lo encuentren en algún momento de su carrera, o que se les exija conocer su significado.


Enseñanza de la traducción del español al inglés: mundos más allá de las palabras


Beeby-Lonsdale, A. (1996). [e-Book]  Teaching Translation from Spanish to English : Worlds Beyond Words, University of Ottawa Press / Les Presses de l’Université d’Ottawa.

Texto completo


While many professional translators believe the ability to translate is a gift that one either has or does not have, Allison Beeby Lonsdale questions this view. In her innovative book, she demonstrates how teachers can guide their students by showing them how insights from communication theory, discourse analysis, pragmatics, and semiotics can illuminate the translation process. Using Spanish to English translation as her example, she presents the basic principles of translation through 29 teaching units, which are prefaced by objectives, tasks, and commentaries for the teacher, and through 48 task sheets, which show how to present the material to students.

El lenguaje más allá de las palabras: La neurología del acento


 Moreno-Torres, I., P. Marien, et al. (2017). [e-Book]  Language beyond Words: The Neuroscience of Accent, Frontiers Media SA

Texto completo

    Language learning also implies the acquisition of a set of phonetic rules and prosodic contours which define the accent in that language. While often considered as merely accessory, accent is an essential component of psychological identity as it embodies information on origin, culture, and social class. Speaking with a non-standard (foreign) accent is not inconsequential because it may negatively impact communication and social adjustment. Nevertheless, the lack of a formal definition of accent may explain that, as compared with other aspects of language, it has received relatively little attention until recently. During the past decade there has been increasing interest in the analysis of accent from a neuroscientific perspective. This e-book integrates data from different scientific frameworks. The reader will find fruitful research on new models of accent processing, how learning a new accent proceeds, and the role of feedback on accent learning in healthy subjects. In addition, information on accent changes in pathological conditions including developmental and psychogenic foreign accent syndromes as well as the description of a new variant of foreign accent syndrome is also included. It is anticipated that the articles in this e-book will enhance the understanding of accent as a linguistic phenomenon, the neural networks supporting it and potential interventions to accelerate acquisition or relearning of native accents.

    Folklore Infantil


    Sutton-Smith, B., J. Mechling, et al. . [e-Book] Children’s Folklore: A Source Book. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 1999

    Texto completo


    A collection of original essays by scholars from a variety of fields—including American studies, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sociology, and education—Children’s Folklore: A Source Book moves beyond traditional social-science views of child development. It reveals the complexity and artistry of interactions among children, challenging stereotypes of simple childhood innocence and conventional explanations of development that privilege sober and sensible adult outcomes. Instead, the play and lore of children is shown to be often disruptive, wayward, and irrational. The contributors variably con-sider and demonstrate “contextual” and “textual” ways of studying the folklore of children. Avoiding a narrow definition of the subject, they examine a variety of resources and approaches for studying, researching, and teaching it. These range from surveys of the history and literature of children’s folklore to methods of field research, studies of genres of lore, and attempts to capture children’s play and games.

    La investigación sobre la escritura: un paradigma contextualista para la retórica y la composición




    Johanek, C.. [e-Book] Composing Research: A Contextualist Paradigm for Rhetoric and Composition. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 2000

    Texto completo


    In Composing Research, Cindy Johanek offers a new perspective on the ideological conflict between qualitative and quantitative research approaches, and the theories of knowledge that inform them. With a paradigm that is sensitive to the context of one’s research questions, she argues, scholars can develop less dichotomous forms that invoke the strengths of both research traditions. Context-oriented approaches can lift the narrative from beneath the numbers in an experimental study, for example, or bring the useful clarity of numbers to an ethnographic study.

    Estudios de Composición como Arte Creativo: Enseñanza, Escritura, Investigación y Administración



    Bloom, L. (1998). [e-Book]  Composition Studies as a Creative Art: Teaching, Writing, Scholarship, Administration. Utah: Utah State University, University Libraries, 1998

    Texto completo


    This work focuses on the creative dynamics that arise from the interrelation of writing, teaching writing, and ways of reading—and the scholarship and administrative issues engendered by it. To regard composition studies as a creative art is to engage in a process of intellectual or aesthetic free play, and then to translate the results of this play into serious work that yet retains the freedom and playfulness of its origins. The book is fueled by a mixture of faith in the fields that compose composition studies, hope that efforts of composition teachers can make a difference, and a sense of community in its broadest meaning.
