Assessing research-doctorate programs a methodology study by National Research Council (U.S.) ( )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How should we assess and present information about the quality of research-doctorate programs? In recommending that the 1995 NRC rankings in Assessing the Quality of Research-Doctorate Programs: Continuity and Change be updated as soon as possible, this study presents an improved approach to doctoral program assessment which will be useful to administrators, faculty, and others with an interest in improving the education of Ph.D.s in the United States. It reviews the methodology of the 1995 NRC rankings and recommends changes, including the collection of new data about Ph.D. students, additional data about faculty, and new techniques to present data on the qualitative assessment of doctoral program reputation. It also recommends revision of the taxonomy of fields from that used in the 1995 rankings
Heart of darkness : unraveling the mysteries of the invisible universe by J. P Ostriker ( Book )
11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Heart of Darkness describes the incredible saga of humankind's quest to unravel the deepest secrets of the universe. Over the past thirty years, scientists have learned that two little-understood components--dark matter and dark energy--comprise most of the known cosmos, explain the growth of all cosmic structure, and hold the key to the universe's fate

Development of large-scale structure in the universe by J. P Ostriker ( Book )
13 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume grew out of the 1988 Fermi lectures given by Professor Ostriker, and is concerned with cosmological models that take into account the large scale structure of the universe. He starts with homogeneous isotropic models of the universe and then, by considering perturbations, he leads us to modern cosmological theories of the large scale, such as superconducting strings. This will be an excellent companion for all those interested in the cosmology and the large scale nature of the universe
A data-based assessment of research-doctorate programs in the United States ( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States provides an unparalleled dataset collected from doctoral institutions, doctoral programs, doctoral faculty and public sources that can be used to assess the quality and effectiveness of doctoral programs based on measures important to faculty, students, administrators, funders, and other stakeholders. The committee collected 20 measures that include characteristics of the faculty, such as their publications, citations, grants, and diversity; characteristics of the students, such as their GRE scores, financial support, publications, and diversity; and characteristics of the program, such as number of Ph.D.'s granted over five years, time to degree, percentage of student completion, and placement of students after graduation. The data were collected for the academic year 2005-2006 from more than 5,000 doctoral programs at 212 universities. These observations span 62 fields, and the research productivity data are based typically on a five-year interval. Some datasets (such as publications and citations) go as far back as 1981. Information on enrollments and faculty size were also collected for 14 emerging fields
