  Scientific method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scientific methods or processes are considered fundamental to the scientific investigation and acquisition of new knowledge based upon physical evidence by scientific communities.
Scientific quantities are often characterized by their units of measure which can later be described in terms of conventional physical units when communicating the work.
Scientific journals use a process of peer review, in which scientists' manuscripts are submitted by editors of scientific journals to (usually one to three) fellow (usually anonymous) scientists familiar with the field for evaluation.

 Frederick Winslow Taylor. Founder of scientific management school.
Taylor formalized the principles of scientific management, and the fact-finding approach put forward and largely adopted was a replacement for what had been the old rule of thumb.
Scientific method, he advocated, could be applied to all problems and applied just as much to managers as workers.
The scientific selection, training and development of workers instead of allowing them to choose their own tasks and train themselves as best they could.

 PANTHEISM: Nature, universe, science and religion
Scientific or natural pantheism is a modern form of pantheism that deeply reveres the universe and nature and joyfully accepts and embraces life, the body and earth, but does not believe in any supernatural deities, entities or powers.
Scientific or Natural Pantheism - Pan for short - has a naturalistic approach which simply accepts and reveres the universe and nature just as they are, and promotes an ethic of respect for human and animal rights and for lifestyles that sustain rather than destroy the environment.
Scientific Pantheism is a consistent, non-dualistic, empirical and logical approach to pantheism.

 Scientific Realism
Scientific realists hold that the characteristic product of successful scientific research is knowledge of largely theory-independent phenomena and that such knowledge is possible (indeed actual) even in those cases in which the relevant phenomena are not, in any non-question-begging sense, observable.
To a good first approximation, typical scientific explanations offer accounts of the causal mechanisms or processes by which some phenomena are brought about, and scientists evaluate the explanatory power of a theory by trying to assess the likelihood that mechanisms or processes posited by the theory operate to produce the relevant effects.
He insists that the success of research in normal science is explained, in significant part, because scientific practitioners have, as a result of their understanding of the paradigmatic theory, a quasi-metaphysical knowledge of the basic (and often unobservable) causal factors involved in the phenomena they study.

 Scientific Explanation
In fact, the notion of “scientific explanation” suggests at least two contrasts — first, a contrast between those “explanations” that are characteristic of “science” and those explanations that are not, and, second, a contrast between “explanation” and something else.
A related point is that while most theorists of scientific explanation have proposed models that are intended to cover at least some cases of explanation that we would not think of as part of science, they have nonetheless assumed some implicit restriction on the kinds of explanation they have sought to reconstruct.
The boundaries of the category “scientific explanation” are far from clear, but while (2.4.1) is arguably an explanation, it is not what one usually thinks of as “science” — instead it is a claim from “ordinary life” or “common sense”.

 Lesson 2-5 Scientific Notation
Scientific notation is simply a method for expressing, and working with, very large or very small numbers.
Numbers in scientific notation are made up of three parts: the coefficient, the base and the exponent.
Remember that correct scientific notation has a coefficient that is less than 10, but greater than or equal to one.

 science
Scientific explanations are in terms of natural phenomena rather than supernatural phenomena, although science itself requires neither the acceptance nor the rejection of the supernatural.
A scientific theory is a unified set of principles, knowledge, and methods for explaining the behavior of some specified range of empirical phenomena.
However, when we refer to a scientific theory, we are not referring to a speculation or guess, but to a systematic explanation of some range of empirical phenomena.

 Scientific Workflows
Scientific workflows promise to become an important area of research within workflow and process automation, and will lead to the development of the next generation of problem-solving and decision-support environments.
As scientific data sets are consumed and generated by the pre- and post-processors and simulation programs, the intermediate results are checked for consistency and validated to ensure that the computation as a whole remains on track.
One, scientific computations in problem-solving environments, which are of great importance, have the key features of workflows and provide a rich testbed on which to apply workflow ideas.

 Scientific fraud and the power structure of science, by Brian Martin
A narrow definition of scientific fraud is convenient to the groups in society -- scientific elites, and powerful government and corporate interests -- that have the dominant influence on priorities in science.
Several of the common misrepresentations and biases are natural outgrowths of the hierarchies within scientific organisations: misrepresentation in citations, false pictures of research in grant applications, appointments of cronies and exploitation of subordinates.
Suffice it to say that scientific fraud, whether defined as usual in narrow terms or broadly conceived as a range of types of misrepresentation and bias, cannot be seriously affected by tinkering with a few policies.

 Scientific Discovery
That is because in many scientific areas, such as nanotechnology, molecular genetics and the exploration of space, information is being generated too fast for humans to analyze it effectively.
The intention of the symposium was that that the papers proposing models of scientific creativity would help researchers concerned with implementing discovery programs, and the papers discussing the successes and techniques employed in working systems will help researchers extract general frameworks for scientific machine discovery.
Scientific discovery is an interesting and important task domain because it involves highly ill-structured problems that call on the whole range of human cognitive resources, and thereby provides deep insights into complex and creative human thinking.

 Scientific Method
Discussion of this approach to scientific investigation is so ubiquitous that it is easy to come to the conclusion that this is the description of how science works.
One of the most significant strengths of scientific knowledge is the degree to which it is self correcting, and this is one part of that.
Most scientific investigations, whether they follow the scientific method's protocol or not, shift back and forth between induction and deduction.

 What is the ``scientific method''?
The scientific method is the best way yet discovered for winnowing the truth from lies and delusion.
In contrast, the theory that ``the moon is populated by little green men who can read our minds and will hide whenever anyone on Earth looks for them, and will flee into deep space whenever a spacecraft comes near'' is not falsifiable: these green men are designed so that no one can ever see them.
A frequent criticism made of the scientific method is that it cannot accommodate anything that has not been proved.

It might be going too far to say that the modern scientific movement was tainted from its birth; but I think it would be true to say that it was born in an unhealthy neighbourhood and at an inauspicious hour.
