Social Science Research Network (SSRN)
Science Research Connection (SRC) offers to the DOE community research information integrated from various OSTI databases, including both unclassified/unlimited and statutorily controlled information. SRC requires either IP authentication and/or registration and access is free of charge. If you are a DOE Federal or DOE Contractor employee and wish to register for an SRC account, please accept the access agreement below and then select the register link.
The Iowa Social Science Research Center is a resource for inter-disciplinary social science research. It provides grant development support and data collection, management, and access services to the university community.
We are at the next stage - science project research. By now you are well on your way to creating your project. If this is the first time you’ve been to this site, you may want to start at the .Another aspect of science project research is good record keeping - since you might not want to write down everything about a particular fact when you find it, it would probably be useful to you to write down where you got each fact – that way, if you want to know more details later on, you can quickly find the fact source and get anything else you want. Up to this point we’ve gone ahead and just used our heads to remember all the details about your project, but now that we want to find lots of facts and information about your chosen topic. Now is a good time to start a project journal or notebook. It’s just a place to write down everything you want to remember about your project – science project research, any facts, ideas, or materials you might want, anything associated with your project.So use Wikipedia (or any other source you prefer) and then find one or two more reliable sources of information to backup your findings and make sure the information you get about your facts is correct. If nothing else, feeling assured of your facts after you’ve done your science project research will give you confidence when you are presenting your project – that confidence will show and you will feel better during the whole event. So feel free to use Wikipedia to do your – the only word of caution we would have is to use more than one sourcewhen doing your science project research for each fact you plan to use in your project. Why? That’s being a good scientist. Even great sources of research information are not infallible 100% of the time (not even Britannica.) It’s good a practice to find more than one source of information for each of your facts – your judges and teachers will appreciate the effort and look upon that kind of diligence favorably.Meaning that if you simply want to research and display information about a topic of interest, your science project research will be fairly broad and will probably cover quite a few details about your topic. If, however, your science project is to be based on an experiment that you will do and demonstrate, you will most likely focus narrowly on a single detail about your particular topic in order to keep your project manageable in size and time requirements.This is a long section! But we are almost done talking about science project research. The last thing we want to mention is that depending on whether you are doing a simple display board project or an experimentation project will determine how narrow your focus will end up being for your project.Registration materials for enrollments and other pertinent information relating to the UHS Program are sent to teachers at the high school at the end of August. Summer registration materials are sent to the high schools in April. Please be advised that students must have a mentor in place before registering for a science research course. Also, students are eligible to register only after written approval for admission into the Program has been received by the high school teacher. Retroactive enrollment for student research work done prior to official admission into UHS is not allowed and should not be anticipated.
