Journal of Women in Educational Leadership (Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education)The Journal of Women in Educational Leadership is a refereed quarterly journal devoted to the publication of original research and scholarly investigations on the roles of women in educational leadership. The journal is committed to setting the standard for scholarship germane to gender issues in educational organizations at all levels, from public and private schools to universities and government. The content of the journal focuses on subjects such as leadership, history, mentoring, policy, politics, communication, law, finance, and management, as these exemplify the influences women exert and have exerted on educational practices and policies. A range of theoretical and methodological approaches is included, as are invited articles, research announcements, and technical columns. The journal is designed to serve as the main national forum for intellectual exchange on women in education.

Papers of John E. Weaver (1884-1956) (Agronomy and Horticulture Department )
ISSN 1234-1234John E. Weaver (1884-1956) was a leading expert on grasses, both as natural populations and as crops. During his career as a faculty member at NU, Weaver published many works regarding vegetation and ecology of prairies and published the first American ecology textbook. His reputation as a world-renowned plant ecologist attracted students from Nebraska and beyond to study range management in agronomy. An Iowa native, Weaver earned his B.S. and master's degrees from the University of Nebraska, and his doctorate from the University of Minnesota. He joined the faculty as an assistant professor in 1915 and became a full professor in 1917; he retired in 1952.

The Nebraska Educator: A Student-Led Journal (Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education)ISSN 2375-6853
The Nebraska Educator is an open access peer-reviewed academic education journal at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This journal is produced by UNL graduate students and publishes articles on a broad range of education topics that are timely and have relevance in the field of all levels of education. We seek original research that covers topics such as:
Curriculum, teaching and professional development
Education policy, practice and analysis
Literacy, language and culture
School, society and reform
Teaching and learning with technologies
The Nebraska Educator has four main goals with its published research: 1) to familiarize students with the process of publication, 2) to facilitate dialogue between emerging scholars, educators, and the larger community, 3) to promote collegiality and interdisciplinary awareness, and 4) to establish a mechanism for networking and collaboration.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Agriculture: The First Century by Elvin F. Frolik and Ralston J. Graham (Agriculture and Natural Resources, Institute of (IANR))
ISSN 1234-1234During most of its first century, the College of Agriculture/IANR of the University of Nebraska- Lincoln has played a major role in improving the state's agriculture and home environment. The College/IANR is now widely respected by Nebraskans. But it struggled long and hard to gain acceptance by prospective students, by the citizens generally, by academia in the rest of the University, and by its chief beneficiaries -- agricultural and home economics interests.
This is the story of the struggles and accomplishments of the College/IANR during its first 100 years and of the people who made it possible.
This book consists of major parts, with a number of sections under a few of the parts, chapters, and appendixes. For the most part, chapters represent administrative units (past or present), major programs, topics of special interest or organizations. The history is treated from the beginning of the College to 1974 (end of the College in its former sense and the beginning of the IANR), and in some cases on beyond, in order to round out the narrative.
Transactions of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences and Affiliated Societies (Nebraska Academy of Sciences)
The Transactions of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences and Affiliated Societies (TNAS) are published by the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. The objectives of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences are to further the work of scientists and to facilitate cooperation among them; to improve the effectiveness of science in the promotion of human welfare and environmental quality; to provide the opportunity for scientific research related to the problems of the ever-changing environment of the Great Plains; to increase public understanding and appreciation of the importance and promise of science in human progress; to stimulate science education, and to encourage young people to become involved in science, and to foster the interaction of business, industry, government, education, and the academic scientific community.
The TNAS was established in 1969 by the State Legislature of Nebraska during its eightieth session. In that session, Legislative Bill 776 provided funds to aid the Nebraska Academy of Sciences in the publication of scientific works submitted by Nebraska scientists. Volumes 1 and 2 of the Transactions were published under this arrangement, but Volume 3 was privately funded. Volumes 4-27 were published under the auspices of the Nebraska Department of Education with funds authorized by the State Legislature, except Volume 11, a special issue supported by a grant from the Peter Kiewit Charitable Trust. Beginning with Volume 28, support was from funds bequeathed to the Nebraska Academy of Sciences by C. Bertrand and Marian Othmer Schultz.
The TNAS is indexed in Biological Abstracts, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Fish and Fisheries Worldwide, and EBSCO. It is freely accessible through Digital Commons at http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/tnas/ hosted by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Starting with Volume 33, the TNAS will no longer be published in print form, and only be published on-line at this site. This will allow for on-line publication of accepted manuscripts in advance of the assembly of an entire volume.
The editor of the TNAS is selected by the Executive Committee of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. The current editor is Bruce A. Chase, Department of Biology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, 6001 Dodge Street, AH 114, Omaha, NE 68182; firstname.lastname@example.org; 402-554-2586.
Aims and Scope
The TNAS publishes peer-reviewed results of original research by members of the Nebraska Academy of Sciences in good standing, either as full-length Research Articles or Short Communications, Letters to the Editor commenting on material previously published in the TNAS, and Novel Hypotheses, Reviews, and Perspectives on topics relevant to the objectives of the Academy. The TNAS especially welcomes submissions of manuscripts from members of the Academy that reflect original, previously unpublished research. These can be on any aspect of the basic or applied sciences or science education, or be related to the broader objectives of the mission of the Academy. Manuscripts should be written in a manner accessible to investigators representing diverse backgrounds in science, science education, and science policy.
