Science Sifting is designed primarily as a textbook for students interested in research and as a general reference book for existing career scientists. The aim of this book is to help budding scientists broaden their capacities to access and use information from diverse sources to the benefit of their research careers. The book describes why the capacity to access and integrate both linear and nonlinear information has been an important historic feature of pivotal scientific breakthroughs. Yet, it is a process that our students are rarely, if ever, taught in universities. This book goes beyond simply describing the features of great scientific breakthroughs. It discusses the basis for accessing and using nonlinear information in the linear research context. It also provides a series of tools and exercises that can be used to enhance access to nonlinear information for application to research and other endeavors. Topics covered include focal points in scientific breakthroughs, the use of concepts maps in research, use of different vantage points, information as patterns, fractals for the scientist, memory storage and access points, and synchronicities. Young researchers need useful tools to help with a more holistic approach to their research careers. This book provides the useful tools to support flexibility and creativity across a long-term research career. Roald Hoffmann — Winner of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry — has contributed the Foreword to Science Sifting. More information on Professor Hoffmann can be found at http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/chemistry/laureates/1981/hoffmann-autobio.html.

Joseph D Novak Professor Emeritus Cornell University "The Dietert team has re-defined creativity in their new book Science Sifting. This book provides an understanding of scientific creativity and a framework that permits these creative scientific paths to be learned and become attainable. Science Sifting is a valuable resource for readers who want to incorporate creativity and innovation as part of their career development." Gary R Burleson, PhD President and CEO Burleson Research Technologies, Inc. (BRT) "This is an excellent book that covers new ground, describing innovative approaches that scientists can use to enhance their research. I would recommend this book for scientists both early in their research career as well as for established scientists looking for novel approaches to invigorate their research." Russ Hauser MD, ScD, MPH Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology Harvard Medical School "Science Sifting offers unique insights into the process of discovery, innovation and re-discovery that is fundamentally integral to researchers, technologists, and entrepreneurs. As we learn about our world through the art of observation and science of experimentation, we create conceptual and contextual models that help us understand the elements and challenges of our discovered world. Science Sifting helps us gain a broader perspective of our observations, identify solutions to the challenges we encounter, and sometimes discover entirely new paradigms through lateral thinking and leaps of understanding. Science Sifting helps us all discover and re-discover our innovative and creative inner selves through a combination of quiet observation, mindful meditation and creative improvisation." Lloyd Spencer CEO CoroWare, Inc. "To help scientists access information from diverse sources to benefit their research careers … Designed primarily as a textbook, the book offers general strategies and specific tools to promote scientific creativity and facilitate a career in research." For a more detailed review, please see http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2013/07/new-book-teaches-scientific-creativity. Susan S Lang Cornell Chronicle "It certainly provides a different perspective to research discovery, which challenges the viewpoints of traditional researchers. The book may be of interest to new and established researchers to enhance their creativity. The tools presented challenge researchers to think in different ways, which may not seem scientific in character and researchers will have to embrace the tools with an open mind to take advantage of the ideas proposed."; For a more detailed review, please see http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/2013/10/science-sifting-rodney-janice-dietert. Chemistry World “In their book the Dieterts record many such historical instances to underscore the importance of adding intuition to the mix when interpreting experimental results in science. The book also includes numerous exercises for fostering intuition, innovation and creativity. This is a fine book, and a pioneering book in many ways … every reader, I believe, will come away from this book well satisfied, and with some new and useful insights to ponder. The Dieterts are to be congratulated on having succeeded so well in such an ambitious undertaking.” History Scotland Magazine “A new book by Cornell faculty member Dr. Rodney Dietert and his wife, Janice, offers a plethora of strategies and tools scientists can use to inspire fresh ideas that could augment their work, raise research out of stubborn ruts, or spawn entirely new studies.” Cornell Veterinary College (http://www.vet.cornell.edu/news/creativity.cfm) (http://www.vet.cornell.edu/news/dietert.cfm) “The authors' work is featured in a documentary film (MicroBirth) scheduled to premiere in September 2014.

Since the 1950s, under congressional mandate, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) - through its National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) and predecessor agencies - has produced regularly updated measures of research and development expenditures, employment and training in science and engineering, and other indicators of the state of U.S. science and technology. A more recent focus has been on measuring innovation in the corporate sector. NCSES collects its own data on science, technology, and innovation (STI) activities and also incorporates data from other agencies to produce indicators that are used for monitoring purposes - including comparisons among sectors, regions, and with other countries - and for identifying trends that may require policy attention and generate research needs. NCSES also provides extensive tabulations and microdata files for in-depth analysis. Capturing Change in Science, Technology, and Innovation assesses and provides recommendations regarding the need for revised, refocused, and newly developed indicators of STI activities that would enable NCSES to respond to changing policy concerns. This report also identifies and assesses both existing and potential data resources and tools that NCSES could exploit to further develop its indicators program. Finally, the report considers strategic pathways for NCSES to move forward with an improved STI indicators program. The recommendations offered in Capturing Change in Science, Technology, and Innovation are intended to serve as the basis for a strategic program of work that will enhance NCSES's ability to produce indicators that capture change in science, technology, and innovation to inform policy and optimally meet the needs of its user community.

A clear, practical guide to implementing Open Innovation for new product development Open Innovation: New Product Development Essentials from the PDMA is a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of the Open Innovation method. Written by experts from the Product Development and Management Association, the book packages a collection of Open Innovation tools in a digestible and actionable format. Real-world case studies drawn from the authors' own successes and failures illustrate the concepts presented, providing accurate representation of the opportunities and challenges of Open Innovation implementation. Key tools are presented with a focus on immediate applications for business, allowing NPD professionals to easily discern where this cutting edge development method can push innovation forward. Open Innovation assumes that companies can and should use both internal and external ideas and paths to market, permeating the boundaries between firm and environment. Innovations transfer outward and inward through purchase, licensing, joint ventures, and spin-offs, allowing companies to expand beyond their own research and dramatically improve productivity through collaboration. PDMA Essentials provides practical guidance on exploiting the Open Innovation model to these ends, with clear guidance on all aspects of the new product development process. Topics include: Product platforming and idea competitions Customer immersion and interaction Collaborative product design and development Innovation networks, rewards, and incentives Many practitioners charged with innovation have only a vague understanding of the specific tools available for Open Innovation, and how they might be applied. As the marketplace shifts dramatically to keep pace with changing consumer behaviors, remaining relevant increasingly means ramping up innovation processes. PDMA Essentials provides the tools NPD practitioners need to implement a leading innovation method, and drive continued growth.
