 Nat' Academies Press, Materials and Man's Needs: Materials Science and Engineering (1974)
Materials science and engineering is not a single discipline, like physics or chemistry, but rather a multidisciplinary area of research and engineering that has evolved gradually over the last twenty years into a coherent aggregation of related activities, but within which each of the component disciplines retains its identity.
However, the COSMAT study is the first to embrace both science and engineering in its coverage, centering on the relationships between the structure and properties of materials as a basis for their design, preparation, and utilization by mankind.
COSMAT is appreciative of the foresight of the Committee on Science and Public Policy in discerning the timeliness and importance of surveying the field of materials science and engineering, with its interrelations among technology, science, and society.

 SHiPS Resource Center || How NOT to Teach History in Science
Science has been used historically to justify political ideologies and power relationships between sexes, races, economic classes or other groups (e.g., Fee 1979; Harding 1992; Haraway 1991; Jones 1981; Gould 1981; Lewontin, Rose and Kamin 1984; Shapin 1979; Kamin 1974).
The lesson, of course, is clear, even to the unsophisticated science student: van Helmont was another ignorant scientist of the past who failed to understand the "obvious" origins of living matter and the need for controlled experiments.
Science teachers (and scientists, too) often enjoy their profession because our culture associates science with certain knowledge.

Science itself was built upon the foundation of a Biblical world view.
why it is that the development of science took place in Europe between 1250 and 1650 and not in any of the great civilizations of antiquity, even though many of them had long periods of relative stability, and were able to develop technology to a considerable degree.
Science will not flourish in a world view which excludes a creator and orderer of the universe.

 HYLE 8-1 (2002): 'Pathological Science' is not Scientific Misconduct (nor is it pathological)
The concept of ‘pathological science’ was put forth nearly half a century ago in a seminar and lacks justification in contemporary understanding of science studies (history, philosophy, and sociology of science).
Any definition of proper science should admit the practices long established and held proper in such fields as chemistry, physics, biology, and geology which, everyone agrees, are indeed sciences.
There is no fussing over instances of ‘pathological science’ within the realms of what Kuhn has termed ‘normal’ science, the sort of research that most scientists are engaged in, that adds detail to the existing stock of knowledge without bringing into question accepted modes of explanation.

The Public Library of Science Biology Edition in at least partial contrast to these start-ups, has gathered a scientific celebrity board of editors and a particularly promising raft of first-rate papers whose authors have an established track record of appearing in leading journals.
Two styles seem to predominate: In the humanities and social sciences, most review authors, acting very much like judges, seek to identify winners and losers in contested fields that were vying for academic attention or scholarly validity.
In the sciences, review authors tend to emphasize how many differing authors each added something to the mosaic of ideas, so that as time went on, a discernable pattern leading to consensus emerged.
