UFV Research Review




Current Issue /
VOLUME 4, ISSUE 3 (Winter 2013)

Selected Papers from ICICTE 2010

The topic of an issue can determine the types of material but in general the Review encourages submissions from practitioners and scholars, including undergraduate and graduate students, college and university instructors, those working in nongovernmental agencies,and workers with public and private agencies. These submissions might take the form of research papers (both quantitative and qualitative), literature reviews, evaluations, case studies, and position papers.

The purpose of the Review is to make available to scholars, interested readers, academics, practitioners, students, and community members the research, findings and other similar material on the selected topics. Papers should be written with the general academic reader in mind. They may be research papers, literature reviews, position papers, evaluations, case studies, field reports or creative non-fiction reflections.
