    Abstract:

    Investment in scientific research in low- and middle-income countries has the potential to increase evidence generation, improve researcher capacity, and motivate policy change. However, the link between scientific research and longer-term outcomes such as policy change has not been rigorously tested. We need an improved understanding of how to link researchers and policymakers toward data-driven decision-making. This brief presents evidence from a mixed methods, medium- to long-term impact e…

    Description:

    An approach for approximate kinematic synthesis of mechanisms which computes a graph that identifies minima of an objective function as vertices and connections between them as edges. Such a graph is interactively presented to a designer, whereby edges are continuously traversed to navigate families of design candidates in between minima. Candidates are evaluated continuously according to auxiliary considerations for the exploration of design trade-offs. Computing the aforementioned graphs be…

    Carter, Katlyn
    Abstract:

    Exploring the intense and common critique of secrecy articulated by the Federalists’ opponents both before and after ratification, this article sheds new light on the way in which the Constitution left open the question of what it meant to represent the people in government. The article traces how concerns about secrecy were amplified in the early republic, becoming a primary discourse in which Federalist policies were contested and serving as glue that bound former Antifederalists with D…

    Abstract:

    Trust is essential to the foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, the former presidential candidate and South Bend mayor. Yet, in a century warped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, systemic racism, and now a global pandemic, trust has been squandered, sacrificed, abused, stolen, or never properly built in the first place. And now, more so than ever before, Americans must work side by side to reckon with the monumental challenges posed by our present momen…

    Abstract:

    Are contemporary soldiers exploited by the state and society that they defend? More specifically, have America’s professional service members disproportionately carried the moral weight of America’s war-fighting decisions since the inception of an all-volunteer force? In this volume, Michael J. Robillard and Bradley J. Strawser, who have both served in the military, examine the question of whether and how American soldiers have been exploited in this way.

    Robillard and Strawser offer…

    Abstract:

    Purpose

    Academic BIPOC librarians oftentimes struggle to envision themselves and navigate in White-dominant spaces due to deficit thinking. To better understand how diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) efforts can bolster structural change in academic libraries, the two BIPOC authors opted to lean on an asset-based exercise–imagining a positive work environment made possible through a library staffed entirely by BIPOC individuals.
