Proximity Rule And Matthew Effect In Coauthorships Of Iranian Medical Universities, Mahmood Khosrowjerdi, Mohammad Karim Bayat, Abbas Eslami, Marzieh Hajipoor, Neda Zeraatkar

Mahmood Khosrowjerdi

One of the measures which used to calculate the scholarly collaboration of countries and organizations is co-authorship. Co-authorship is a process in which two or more authors/researchers collaborate with each other to create a joint work via collaboration channels and methods.

Therefore, the aim of this study is to draw the organizational co-authorships among Iranian medical universities and to analyze the role of proximity and Matthew effect in this collaboration. Thus, 32 medical universities were selected ...

Towards A Redefinition Of The Role Of The Court Interpreter, Holly Mikkelson Jan 1998

Towards A Redefinition Of The Role Of The Court Interpreter, Holly Mikkelson

Holly Mikkelson

Various federal and state statutes in the United States define the role of the court interpreter with clear and unequivocal rules. This definition is based on the underlying principles of the U.S. legal system, which is derived from the Anglo-Saxon common-law tradition. Consequently, the distinctive features of that system, including the jury trial and the concept of adversarial proceedings, make the function of the court interpreter quite different from that of his/her counterparts in other countries. In recent years, the judiciary has made an effort to enhance the public's access to the justice system, but at the ...

The Professionalization Of Community Interpreting, Holly Mikkelson Jan 1996

The Professionalization Of Community Interpreting, Holly Mikkelson

Holly Mikkelson

Community interpreting, which includes court and medical interpreting, is following the typical pattern of a profession in its infancy. In the beginning it is characterized by a lack of standards for training and practice, disorganization and disunity among practitioners, a lack of recognition of the profession among clients and the public, and poor working conditions. These circumstances improve as practitioners unite and form professional associations to impose discipline and standardization and to achieve recognition through education, legislation and public relations. This paper will define the terms "community interpreting" and "profession," present a comparative analysis of community interpreting and other professions ...
