Most widely held works by John Willinsky
If only we knew increasing the public value of social science research by John Willinsky( )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In If Only We Knew, John Willinsky uses current social issues and historical precedents to demonstrate that the social sciences can and should contribute far more to public knowledge than they have in the past
Empire of words : the reign of the OED by John Willinsky( Book )
16 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Willinsky analyzes the favored citation records from the three editorial periods of the OED's compilation: the Victorian, imperial first edition; the modern supplement; and the contemporary second edition composed on an electronic data base. He reveals shifts in linguistic authority: the original edition relied on English literature and, surprisingly, on translations, reference works, and journalism; the modern editions have shifted emphasis to American sources and periodicals while continuing to neglect women, workers, and other English-speaking countries." "Willinsky's dissection of dictionary entries exposes contradictions and ambiguities in the move from citation to definition. He points out that Shakespeare, the most frequently cited authority in the OED, often confounds the dictionary's simple sense of meaning with his wit and artfulness. He shows us how the most famous four-letter words in the language found their way, one hundred years later, through a belabored editorial process into the supplement to the OED. Willinsky sheds considerable light on how the OED continues to shape the English language through the sometimes idiosyncratic, often biased selection of citations by hired readers and impassioned friends of the language. Anyone who is fascinated with words and language will find Willinsky's tour through the OED a delightful and stimulating experience."--Jacket
Technologies of knowing a proposal for the human sciences by John Willinsky( )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While some critics have condemned computers and the Internet for putting us in this age of overflow, and still others have praised them for their own sake, Willinsky takes a middle ground. Using the fictitious Automata Data Corporation as the vehicle for an ingenious thought experiment, he plays out what would happen if all information collected from social science research were centralized, catalogued, and processed by one company serving the public interest. Willinsky describes in great detail how such an entity could work to fulfill the promises of the human sciences and technology
The access principle : the case for open access to research and scholarship by John Willinsky( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Questions about access to scholarship go back farther than recent debates over subscription prices, rights, and electronic archives suggest. The great libraries of the past - from the fabled collection at Alexandria to the early public libraries of nineteenth-century America - stood as arguments for increasing access. In The Access Principle, John Willinsky describes the latest chapter in this ongoing story - online open access publishing by scholarly journals - and makes a case for open access as a public good."--Jacket
