Difﬁculty of reading scholarly papers is signiﬁcantly reduced by reader-friendly writing principles. Writing reader-friendly text, however, is challenging due to difﬁculty in recognizing problems in one’s own writing. To help scholars identify and correct potential writing problems, we introduce SWAN (Scientiﬁc Writing AssistaNt) tool. SWAN is a rule-based system that gives feedback based on various quality metrics based on years of experience from scientiﬁc writing classes including 960 scientists of various backgrounds: life sciences, engineering sciences and economics. ...
Scholars in the Marketplace distinguishes between privatisation and commercialisation, two processes that drove the Makerere reform. It argues that whereas privatisation (the entry of privately sponsored students) is compatible with a public university where priorities are publicly set, commercialisation (granting each faculty financial and administrative autonomy for to design a market-responsive curriculum) inevitably leads to market-determined priorities in a public university.

This, too, was the period when the integrity of Eclectic Medicines was
threatened by the “resinoid” distraction, with which dishonest

concerned. Another disturber was to come.

"The book is designed for the students of the senior courses of the Univer-sity faculties of foreign languages and Teachers´´ Training Colleges.

My first debt in writing this book is to my father Dr. Alapati Appa Rao, who is responsible for my
love for education and books. This book is a direct outcome of the early scholarly interest nurtured
by him, as well as his support and encouragement for writing the Oracle 9i book, which is this
John Watson, the Technical Reviewer for the book, did a superb job in not merely catching
technical errors, but also in prodding me to explain several concepts clearly and accurately. I’ve
gained immensely from John’s collaboration on this book....

This short book is my answer to their question. This book will reference
modern research, but it is not a book for scholars. This book will contain
information that will benefit English teachers, but it is not a book for
teachers. This is a book for you, the student. In my reading, much of the literature concerning language acquisition theory
and research are designed for teachers.

Islamic scholars have been critically examining the modus operandi of modern commercial
banks ever since their establishment in the Muslim world in the last decade of the nineteenth
century. As time passed, the consensus emerged among the scholars that the system was
against the principles of Shar¯ı´ah, mainly because of paying/charging returns on loans and
ABSTRACT. Scholars have long suspected that political processes such as democracy and corruption are important factors in determining economic growth. Studies show, however, that democracy has only indirect effects on growth, while corruption is generally accepted by scholars as having a direct and negative impact on economic perfor-mance.
Probability theory began in seventeenth century France when the two great French
mathematicians, Blaise Pascal and Pierre de Fermat, corresponded over two problems
from games of chance. Problems like those Pascal and Fermat solved continued
to influence such early researchers as Huygens, Bernoulli, and DeMoivre in establishing
a mathematical theory of probability.
As a wetland of international importance located in China, the Poyang Lake Basin's incredible topographical and biological diversity has provided a congregating point for scientists from around the world to engage in cross-disciplinary research.
