The Latin American Research Review (LARR) publishes original research and review essays on Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latina/Latino studies. LARR covers the social sciences and the humanities, including the fields of anthropology, economics, history, literature and cultural studies, political science, and sociology. The journal reviews and publishes papers in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. All papers, except for book and documentary film review essays, are subject to double-blind peer review. LARR, the academic journal of the Latin American Studies Association, has been in continuous publication since 1965.
Back content for this journal from 1965 to 2012 can be found on JSTOR. Content from 2003 to 2016 is available at Project Muse. Back content is available on the LASA website to LASA members.
CMRR holds two Research Reviews each year. Attendance is limited to CMRR members and invited guests. Contact Octavio Ochoa at 858-534-6196, for detailed information.
These reviews provide opportunity for data storage technologists from CMRR’s sponsor companies to meet each other, and an opportunity to meet CMRR students. The CMRR Advisory Council composed of a representative from each sponsor company also meets at this time to provide feedback on research projects.
A literature review is a comprehensive summary of previous research on a topic. The literature review surveys scholarly articles, books, and other sources relevant to a particular area of research. The review should enumerate, describe, summarize, objectively evaluate and clarify this previous research. It should give a theoretical base for the research and help you (the author) determine the nature of your research. The literature review acknowledges the work of previous researchers, and in so doing, assures the reader that your work has been well conceived. It is assumed that by mentioning a previous work in the field of study, that the author has read, evaluated, and assimiliated that work into the work at hand.
A literature review creates a “landscape” for the reader, giving her or him a full understanding of the developments in the field. This landscape informs the reader that the author has indeed assimilated all (or the vast majority of) previous, significant works in the field into her or his research.
The Research Review Committee (RRC) helps to ensure that research proposals prepared by investigators affiliated with our Department meet the highest scientific and ethical standards. Prior to submission to external funding agencies or initiation of internally supported research, the RRC evaluates the scientific and technical merits of research proposals planned by our faculty, collaborating faculty from outside the Department, fellows, students, and staff.
To help it succeed in its mission, the RRC requests that investigators submit proposals for review as early as possible and work proactively with the committee throughout the process. More information about the RRC and its role is described in this Academic Psychiatry paper.
All published MMRR articles remain accessible at http://www.cms.gov/mmrr/. MMRR articles were published from 2011 through 2014 and are permanently archived and accessible at the PubMed Central Web site, at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/2404/.
Prior to the debut of MMRR in 2011, the predecessor was known as the Health Care Financing Review (HCFR) and was published in hard copy format from 1979 through 2009. The legacy of the HCFR is preserved and enhanced. All past HCFR articles have been converted into fully accessible electronic files and are searchable on the CMS.gov Web site, at http://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Research/HealthCareFinancingReview/List-of-Past-Articles.html. All HCFR articles are also archived and available at the PubMed Web address identified above.
Every industry is now transforming to become digital. With that comes new risks from sensors, communication networks, algorithms, software and emerging from system complexity. And new trust gaps appear between the physical and the digital world. How can we establish trust and assure the new digital technologies to enable their beneficial, safe use? And how can we prepare to capture the opportunities from the digital transformation?
Our Energy Transition Outlook predicts that renewables will provide almost 50% of global energy supply in 2050. But how will the integration of solar, wind and storage work? Which role will hydrogen play? And which fuel will power airplanes and ships tomorrow?

Background reading is used to understand key concepts, topic-specific language, and identify search terms. Background reading is used in low-risk situations. It’s not used to make significant public health decisions.
Focused practice question
A Focused Practice Question (FPQ) is used to inform public health practice or to develop key messages. An FPQ is appropriate when the scope of the decision is moderate.

The purpose of the Research Review Committee (RRC) is to enhance the scientific quality of research proposals. The major function of the Research Review Committee (RRC) is to ensure that research proposals prepared by investigators meet the highest scientific and ethical standards. The Committee provides feedback on research plans. This may include information regarding background, protocol, analysis plan, etc. The RRC helps ensure the study meets research standards and provides peer review and practice in responding to professional critiques.
