Family Research & History Research @ ScienceIndex.com
Mannheim, Germany (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
ScienceIndex.com is a Social Sciences Network newly featuring the latest Family and History Research. The site was established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. In the field of Society Sciences, the site has now included the two new categories Family and History. While the Family section covers social units consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for, the History section deals with the branch of knowledge dealing with past events.
ScienceIndex.com's Social Sciences Research and Development Category covers the totality of social relationships among humans. Its twelve sections include anthropology, archaeology, arts, education, family, history, law and crime, linguistics, literature, philosophy, politics, and religion. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to ScienceIndex.com's Social Sciences Research and Development RSS feed.
ScienceIndex.com's new Family section covers social units consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for. It currently contains 5,381 articles partly derived from nearly 120 scientific Family journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through a Family Research RSS feed. One of the latest additions to this section covers mechanisms for fostering multigenerational resilience. The authors of this article stress that family resilience is an important concept that involves both processes and outcomes and explore the multigenerational nature of resilience. Another article portraits the role of negative sibling relationships and sense of coherence on psychological distress among sisters of young females with eating disorders. The aim of this study is to examine the association between sibling relationships, sense of coherence, psychological distress and depression among healthy sisters of females with or without eating disorders. The authors measured a significant negative correlation between sense of coherence and depression, and suggest that when sister has an eating disorder, negative sibling relationships can influence the psychological condition of her healthy sister.
ScienceIndex.com's new History section deals with the branch of knowledge dealing with past events. It currently contains over 4,550 articles partly derived from over 260 scientific History journals. The latest articles in this section are also available through a History Research RSS feed. One recently included article in this section covers replicated stalagmite-inferred centennial-to decadal-scale monsoon precipitation variability in southwest China since the mid-Holocene. The authors present replicated high-resolution stalagmite profiles from Dark Cave in Guizhou province, southwest China, established with oxygen isotope data, providing a continuous history of the Asian summer monsoon (ASM) precipitation from 6100 to 300 years before present. Consistency of long-term decreasing ASM trends realms on orbital timescales and supports the effect of primary orbital solar forcings on monsoonal precipitation. Spectral analysis yields periodicities, implying ASM intensity for the last 6,000 years could be associated with solar activity and variability of El Niño-Southern Oscillation. Another article in this section covers the United States, the World Bank, and the challenges of international development in the 1970s. Drawing on previously untapped documents from the bank archives, this article examines the tumultuous relationship between the World Bank and the U.S. government during the seventies. The authors conclude that U.S. support remained critical to the bank and, as such, the organization’s autonomy was significantly bounded.
