For Ramón y Cajal, every man can be, if he sets his mind to it, a sculptor of his own brain and, convinced that every great work is the result of a great passion placed at the service of a great idea, he offers in the first chapters a series of advice and warnings to young students, trying to promote their enthusiasm for laboratory work. In the final chapters, the researcher analyses the duties of the state towards science and its obligations to the indispensable promotion of the scientist. Nobel laureate Severo Ochoa also enriches this edition with a warm prologue in which he expresses his admiration for Don Santiago and shares with him his concern for the promotion of scientific research in our country. Santiago Ramón y Cajal received the 1906 Nobel Prize for Medicine for his research into the structure of the nervous system.
Bourdie, P. The scientist's craft: science of science and reflexivity. Anagrama. 2003
This book, the last published during the author's lifetime, is a record of his last course at the Collège de France in 2001. His aim was to subject the field of science to a historical and sociological analysis. Pierre Bourdieu starts from the tension between reason and history. On the one hand, the challenge of the Enlightenment: the possibility of a reason that emancipates itself from historical contingencies. On the other hand, the observation of the social sciences: reason is always inscribed in a socio-historical context. To resolve this antinomy, Bourdieu proposes the path of a rationalism that assumes its historical part. Starting with a social history of the sociology of science and a survey of the reflections of Merton, Kuhn, Feyerabend, Durkheim, among others, the author gives a master class in meta-science, the sociology of science, and the philosophy of science.

Torres-Salinas, D.; Cabezas-Clavijo, A. How to publish in scientific journals of impact: tips and rules on scientific publication. EC3 Working Papers, N 13, September 2013.
Publishing in the so-called impact journals, identified as those indexed in the Thomson-Reuters databases, has become the main objective of researchers and R&D institutions. Therefore, in this course we present some tips to maximise the chances of acceptance of manuscripts submitted to this type of journals. First, we define what an impact journal is and its benefits for both researchers and institutions. Then we develop some aspects to consider during the preparation of the manuscript such as authorship, the preparation of tables and graphs or the preparation of bibliographical references. Once the manuscript has been prepared, we concentrate on the fundamental criteria for selecting the appropriate journal. Finally, we review different factors to take into account during the submission process and, once submitted, we focus on the peer review process and the response to reviewers.

The purpose of this entry is twofold: on the one hand, to review the proposals of the Committee on Publication Ethics, or COPE (from which we have extracted the above quote) in relation to who is justified in appearing as co-author of an article, and on the other, to present them accompanied by good practices from a pragmatism that not only is not at odds with COPE, but also helps to place them in the context of current academic production. This is why we speak of both ethics and pragmatism in the title.

The APA (American Psychological Association) Guidelines are a set of guidelines designed to facilitate clear and precise communication in academic publications, especially in the citation and referencing of information sources. Although they originated in the field of psychology, their use has spread to other fields of the social sciences, economics and applied sciences, among others, because of their practicality in preparing manuscripts for publication, student papers and other academic products.

For those who are used to writing on the internet, markdown is an interesting, fast and efficient approach. Markdown is a simple way to add formatting to web texts. By formatting we mean italics, bold, lists, and more, in plain text - for example, the text we find in the HTML viewer of blog editors, or in Windows Notepad, to make the concept more accessible. Markdown was originally created by John Gruber, with the help of Aaron Swartz, for the purpose of creating plain text that was easy to write and easy to read, and that could be easily and validly converted to XHTML.

This book is designed to help you lose your fear of qualitative research. For this reason, we have sought to use simple, accessible language that will help researchers to get started in research using the simplest techniques known: listening, observing and reading. This book is especially aimed at those who are starting out in qualitative research and need to respond to a doctoral thesis, a Master's thesis or a Bachelor's thesis.
Beall's List was a prominent list of predatory open access publishers that was maintained by University of Colorado librarian Jeffrey Beall on his blog Scholarly Open Access. The aim of the list was to document open access publishers who did not perform true peer review, effectively publishing any article as long as the authors paid the open access fee.
A single Royal Decree has finally made the Digital University a forced reality. Although the response of the teaching staff in this transition has been admirable and teaching is being developed from day one through the network, this session will review some fundamental keys to e-learning and will review the contributions of the "emerging pedagogies" for these times of confinement.
The Dr. Antoni Esteve Foundation publishes the Cuaderno Cómo elaborar un proyecto en ciencias de la salud, a manual that brings together the experience in the development and evaluation of research projects of a number of professionals in Spain and Europe.
