    From Research Assistant to Researcher: Being Wakeful in a Mentorship Journey About Methodology, Poverty, and Deficit Thinking.Heather Grenville & Darlene Ciuffetelli Parker - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M7 (proof).
    This article explores how insights and new knowledge were incorporated about narrative inquiry methodology, poverty, and deficit ways of thinking through a journey of mentorship. The experiences of a graduate student, as she journeys through the roles of a research assistant and graduate researcher, all the while being part of a positive mentorship experience, are relayed. The article describes the journey of an evolving researcher who becomes wakeful through the narrative inquiry methodology while engaged as a research assistant as well (...)

    Cognitive Apprenticeship and the Supervision of Science and Engineering Research Assistants.Michelle Anne Maher, Joanna Gilmore & David Feldon - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M5 (proof).
    We explore and critically reflect on the process of science and engineering research assistant skill development both within laboratory-based research teams and, when no team is present, within the faculty supervisor-research assistant interactions. Using a performance-based measure of research skill development, we identify research assistants who, over the course of an academic year of service as a researcher, markedly developed, modestly developed, or failed to develop their research skills. Interviews with these research assistants and their faculty supervisors, seen through the (...)

  4. Research Practice in Research Assistantships: Introducing the Special Issue on Research Assistantships.Michelle K. McGinn & Ewelina K. Niemczyk - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article E2 (proof).
    The idea for this special issue came from our mutual interest in research education and the development of future researchers. Our shared program of research has led us to discover the potentials, complexities, and dilemmas associated with research assistantships where newcomers assist more experienced researchers to conduct research projects. We considered a wide range of proposals and papers addressing different aspects of research assistantships. The resulting collection includes self-studies and analyses of others, as well as policy reviews and recommendations. The (...)

    The Light and Shadow of Feminist Research Mentorship: A Collaborative Autoethnography of Faculty-Student Research.Julia Moore, Jennifer A. Scarduzio, Brielle Plump & Patricia Geist-Martin - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M8 (proof).
    “Research assistant” is a term used to describe student researchers across a variety of contexts and encompasses a wide array of duties, rewards, and costs. As critical/qualitative scholars situated in a discipline that rarely offers funded research assistantships to graduate students, we explore how we have engaged in faculty-student research in one particularly understudied context: the independent study. Using narrative writing and reflection within a framework of collaborative autoethnography, the first three authors reflect as three “generations” of protégés who were (...)

    The Ethical Treatment of Research Assistants: Are We Forsaking Safety for Science?Karen Z. Naufel & Denise R. Beike - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M11 (proof).
    Science inevitably involves ethical discussions about how research should be implemented. However such discussions often neglect the potential unethical treatment of a third party: the research assistant. Extensive anecdotal evidence suggests that research assistants can experience unique physical, psychological, and social risks when implementing their typical responsibilities. Moreover, these research assistants, who perhaps engage in research experience to bolster their curricula vitae, may feel coerced to continue to work in unsafe environments out of fear of losing rapport with the research (...)

  7. From Research Assistant to Professional Research Assistance: Research Consulting as a Form of Research Practice.Dawn E. Pollon, Monique Herbert, Saad Chahine & Olesya Falenchuk - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M6.
    Research assistantships have long been viewed as an extension of the formal education process, a form of apprenticeship, and a pathway into the professional practice of research in institutional settings. However, there are other contexts in which researchers practice research. Our self-reflective analysis identified that RAship experiences during the masters and the PhD may serve developmentally foundational roles in the advancement of an RA’s knowledge, skills, and passion for research. Further, analysis of participants’ experiences revealed that RA supervisors play critical (...)

    A Dual Perspective on Risks and Security Within Research Assistantships.Johannes Petrus Rossouw & Ewelina Kinga Niemczyk - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M10 (proof).
    Although research assistantships are considered research learning venues in graduate education, there is a scarcity of literature that examines ethical elements attached to the employment of graduate student research assistants or the position of their research supervisors. This article explores the need to implement formal regulations specific to research assistantships in order to increase security and decrease risks for research assistants and research supervisors. Relationships between research assistants and research supervisors have some similarities with regular employment relationships; yet some distinct (...)

    Researching With Undergraduate Students: Exploring the Learning Potentials of Undergraduate Students and Researchers Collaborating in Knowledge Production.Trine Wulf-Andersen, Kevin Holger Mogensen & Peder Hjort-Madsen - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (2):Article M9 (proof).
    The article presents a particular case of undergraduate students working on subprojects within the framework of their supervisors' (the authors') research project during Autumn Semester 2012 and Spring Semester 2013. The article's purpose is to show that an institutionalized focus on students as "research learners" rather than merely curriculum learners proves productive for both research and teaching. We describe the specific university learning context and the particular organization of undergraduate students' supervision and assistantships. The case builds on and further enhances (...)

    Forms and Levels of Integration: Evaluation of an Interdisciplinary Team-Building Project.Andrea Armstrong & Douglas Jackson-Smith - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (1):Article M1.
    Team science models are frequently promoted as the best way to study complex societal and environmental problems. Despite increasing popularity, there is relatively little research on the processes and mechanisms that facilitate the emergence of integration of interdisciplinary teams. This article evaluates a suite of recent team-building and grant-writing activities designed to address water management in the Western U.S. We use qualitative methods to document the emergence of integrative capacity at the individual, group, and institutional levels, with particular attention to (...)

    Challenging Fieldwork Situations: A Study of Researcher's Subjectivity.Thomas Bille & Vibeke Oestergaard Steenfeldt - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (1):Article M2.
    Researching two different work settings, police work and hospice care, the authors experienced a strange sense of discomfort in their bodies during their fieldwork when investigating professional training and work situations, especially in encounters with citizens and patients. In some of those situations, the authors withdrew physically or mentally from the situation without wanting to do so, feeling emotionally affected by the uncertainty of the situations, not fully grasping the meaning of what was going on. In a strange way they (...)

    Research Skills for the Future: Research Workforce Under the Spotlight.Eva Dobozy - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (1):Article V4.
    The value and training needs of the future research workforce is under the spotlight. In this article, I take up Ulrich and Dash's (2013) somewhat provocative invitation to engage in discussion and debate about current and future research. In my three-tiered response, I first discuss Ulrich and Dash's article, followed by my own observations about the APEC/Deloitte (2010) research report: "Skills and Competencies Needed in the Research Field: Objectives 2020," and finally, I explore, in some detail, challenges of building a (...)

    The Business of Research in Art and Design: Parallels Between Research Centres and Small Businesses.Seymour Roworth-Stokes - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (1):Article M3.
    This article provides a cross-case analysis of four art and design research centres operating within UK universities. Findings from autobiographical and semi-structured interviews with researchers, research managers, and research leaders indicate that they encounter similar issues in trying to establish internal legitimacy within the university alongside the need to gain external support and recognition. In dealing with these challenges, art and design research centres tend to pass through four broadly identifiable phases: (i) Origination (utilising credentials and leadership capacity), (ii) Establishment (...)

    Collaborative Research in Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy: Evidence From 5 Years of US-Russian Research Cooperation.Thomas Wolfgang Thurner & Liliana Proskuryakova - 2013 - Journal of Research Practice 9 (1):Article M4.
    We reviewed the output of research and innovation cooperation between Russia and the US, including publications and patents, in the four prospective areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy during 2007-2011. Joint US-Russia research groups appear to focus primarily on hydrogen energy (fuel cells), followed by solar photovoltaics. The upcoming areas of smart grid and biofuels were left out entirely both from research and innovation collaboration. Russian patents in green energy technologies registered in the US are very low in comparison (...)
