Routledge as a global publisher: A case study, 1980-2010

The scale of the publishing in early 2013 showed the extent of brand enlargement since 1988. The New Book catalogue listed 1,794 titles to be published in the three months January to March 2013 (T&F, 2012d), of which 1,258 were branded Routledge (alongside Garland Science and CRC Press titles). Many of the subjects listed in the first, 1988 Routledge catalogue (see above, under The ‘New’ Routledge) were strongly represented, plus an additional range of disciplines reflecting the many changes in the company described here, including Nursing and Applied Health, Medicine, Life Sciences, Science and Technology, Law, and Architecture and Built Environment, plus a more nuanced list of subdisciplines within the Humanities, Education, Social Sciences and the Behavioural Sciences. The branding of the journals was decided at T&F Group level, consistent with the perceived subject strengths of the Routledge and T&F brands.

How to Explore a Field (Review essay, Routledge Encyclopedia of Narrative Theory)

When the first encyclopedia of a field of knowledge is published, it amounts to a coming of age. So it is with The Routledge Encyclopedia of Narrative Theory, the appearance of which has staked a confident and substantial claim for its subject as an established intellectual frame of reference in the humanities, the social sciences, and beyond. It is not the first reference work in the field: indeed Gerald Prince’s Dictionary of Narratology, which first appeared in 1987, is now in its second edition. 1

Formative Assessment and Consequential Validity: A Practice Yet to be Effectively Implemented in Saudi Higher Education

Formative Assessment and Consequential Validity: A Practice Yet to be Effectively Implemented in Saudi Higher Education

Standardized tests have been found in various settings strongly influencing students’ learning processes as well as outcomes, but such tests have been reported being unhelpful in improving student learning. In contrast, formative assessment (FA) is employed to help students know the level of their learning during a course and allow them to increase the standard of their learning, through knowing their learning weaknesses, receiving informative feedback from their teachers and applying adequate learning strategies, in order to achieve the formulated goals of the course. A thorough examination of empirical published research in the field revealed that insightful studies in Saudi academic context are still awaited. Therefore, this exploratory study was an attempt to investigate consequential validity of formative assessment at a Saudi university. To examine the nature of the consequential validity, data were collected from 960 English-major students via a survey (of whom 465 responded), 18 classroom observations and 4 focus-group interviews. The data underwent both statistical and content analysis. The results showed that FA, in the context of this study, seriously lacks intended consequential validity—positive impact on students’ learning. Besides, the data indicated a strong unintended consequential validity i.e., negative bearing of FA on what the students learnt, how they learnt it and the depth of their learning. Therefore, it is recommended that FA practices should be urgently revisited with expert understanding for the

The Commons

The Commons

For the past 500 years, i.e. from the very first acts of enclosures in 16th-century England, a lively argument about primitive accumulation – with great political import, of course – has raged, from pulpits and university lecterns, and on the pages on tracts, pamphlets, books and scholarly journals. Rather than attempting to review this now-sprawling debate, we instead focus on one key contribution, by ecologist Garret Hardin. In his seminal article ‘The tragedy of the commons’, published in the prestigious journal Science, Hardin (1968) assumes a group of herders sharing common grazing land, to which each has open and free access. Hardin argues that since each herder wants to maximise the fodder for his or her cattle, or the number of animals feeding, this will inevitably lead to a problem of resource depletion. According to Hardin, the ‘rational herdsman’ will keep increasing the size of his herd, because he receives all the benefits from grazing an additional animal, whilst the costs of overgrazing are shared by all. Of course ‘each and every rational herdsman sharing a commons’ will make the same decision.

Review of Ball, Haggerty and Lyon’s The Routledge Handbook of Surveillance Studies

Review of Ball, Haggerty and Lyon’s The Routledge Handbook of Surveillance Studies

Whilst there are other excellent Surveillance Studies readers, such as the work edited by Hier and Greenberg (2007), the formidable profile, diversity, breadth and scope of the Routledge collection, make it quite simply, definitive. Here we have authors such as James Rule, Gary Marx, David Lyon and Clive Norris—who essentially founded the field—mixed with new authors who take the insights of these pathfinders into new domains. The Handbook could not be more timely, as the pace of technological innovation in surveillance transcends many of the existing legal and cultural limits and understandings of its role and function. The year of its publication sees new evaluation and ethical initiatives by the EU, such as the PACT project which will question 27,000 citizens on their perceptions of the trade-off between security and privacy. 2012 also heralded a new awareness of policy in research funding into security to fully evaluate the societal impacts of surveillance research which is now a formal EC requirement for all the work it funds. But the wave of second and third order impacts of the new surveillance capacity are affecting people world-wide, often with little comprehension of what can now be remotely seen.

The Routledge Companion to International Entrepreneurship, Stephanie A. Fernhaber, Shameen Prashantham (Eds.). Routledge (2015), 262pp. (hardcover), ISBN: 978-0-415-82919-9, USD 240.00

The racetracks of large corporations and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) merged under the influence of globalization forces. The “shrinking” of the world through the improved channels of distribution of products, people and information blurred the original segmentation and set the foundation of a more international entrepreneurial environment. The context of increased internationalization and the emergence of small and large players in the global market landscape, has defined the steady rise in the international entrepreneurship (IE) literature, which is no longer “a field in its infancy”, but one “characterized by an exponential growth” (Fernhaber and Prashantham, 2015:1). This transition of the IE literature has been well-spotted by the book The Routledge Companion to International Entrepreneurship. The book’s editors Fernhaber and Prashantham express strong motivation to reflect on the field’s evolution in order to outline its path for future developments. More specifically, the research motivation for this issue is to bridge existing divides between the entrepreneurship and the international business (IB) literature.
