Armed conflict survey

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : armed conflict survey

The Armed Conflict Survey (ACS) is a new annual publication from the International Institute for Strategic Studies, publisher of yearly reference work on national defence capabilities The Military Balance and annual review of world affairs Strategic Survey. The ACS provides yearly data on fatalities, refugees and internally displaced people for all major armed conflicts, alongside in-depth analysis of their political, military and humanitarian dimensions. The first edition covers the key developments and context of more than 40 conflicts, including those in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Myanmar, Syria and Yemen.

The ACS features essays by some of the world’s leading authorities on armed conflict, who write on subjects such as the development of jihadism after 9/11; hybrid warfare; refugees and internally displaced people; criminality and conflict; and the evolution of peacekeeping operations. The authors discuss the principal thematic and cross-regional trends that have emerged over the past year, complementing the granular approach to each conflict at the core of the book. The ACS also includes maps, infographics and multi-year data, as well as the highly regarded IISS Chart of Conflict.

Published by Taylor & Francis for the IISS (International Institute for Strategic Studies).

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2015) to present.

Journal of historical sociolinguistics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : journal of historical sociolinguistics

The Journal’s Aims and Scope:

The Journal of Historical Sociolinguistics (JHSL) is a double-blind peer-reviewed forum for research into the social history of language. We welcome original contributions (both linguistic and interdisciplinary) on aspects of language and society in the past including (but not limited to) the social embedding of language variation and change, issues of language contact and conflict, historical multilingualism, the social stratification of writing skills, the development of language norms and the impact of language ideologies.

Published by Walter de Gruyter.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2015) to present.

Salvador Tió … wove the threads between academic and popular discourses. In the 1940s, he coined the term espanglish which is still the lightning rod in the language debates over diasporic Spanish-speaking communities in the US. Tió mocked the lexical and morpho-syntactic results of linguistic contact by making up nonsense Spanglish items such as treepar combining the English noun “tree” and the Spanish infinitive morpheme – ar and presumably meaning “to climb a tree/trepar un arbol. ” In these descriptions, Puerto Rican speakers of contact Spanish are repeatedly associated with ridicule.  From Valdez, Juan R. “The battleground of metaphors: language debates and symbolic violence in Puerto Rico (1930-1960)” in Vol. 2, 1 (2016).

Further information on the databases being trialled in Engineering Village is given below.

Engineering Village, the essential engineering research database, provides a searchable index of the most comprehensive engineering literature and patent information available. Designed by, and for, the engineering community, this comprehensive, all-inclusive platform gives academic institutions, corporations and government agencies, access to peer-reviewed, deeply indexed, relevant and accurate engineering research content—all in a single, easy-to-use interface.

 

 

Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world with over 20 million indexed records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus so engineers can be confident information is relevant, complete, accurate and of high quality.

Inspec, created by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is one of the world’s most definitive bibliographic scientific databases, containing 15+ million records. Librarians of the world’s top universities have relied on the Inspec database as a trusted source for relevant, peer reviewed scientific content for over 40 years. Inspec can be supplemented with the Inspec Archive to extend coverage and contains close to 900,000 records dating back to 1898. Its records have been digitized and indexed for fast, effective searching and are enhanced with current-day Inspec Thesaurus terms and Classification codes.

Comprised of two highly specialized engineering databases, EnCompass is trusted worldwide for providing superior insights from scientific literature and patents targeted specifically for research in the petroleum refining, petrochemical, natural gas, and related energy industries. Started by the American Petroleum Institute in 1961, these databases are extensively indexed utilizing proprietary technology known as the Encompass Thesaurus. Both databases are updated weekly, with EnCompassLIT covering 1+ million records and EnCompassPAT 650,000+ records. With EnCompass, businesses can significantly improve the quality of technical information and accelerate research, maximizing the value of energy R&D dollars.
The EnCompass Thesaurus, 52nd Edition is available.

Engineering Village Patents give researchers the tools they need to take advantage of the scientific and technical information found within the United States and the European Union patent records. Whether preparing a patent application, tracking a technology, identifying a potential collaborator or competitor, or simply learning more about work that is being done in a particular field, patent documents are an essential source for thorough, successful research. The Engineering Village Patent databases contain 12.7 million patents filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and 4.4 million patents filed with the European Union Patent Office (EPO).
