Insights: The Newsletter of the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship



FARMS research notes, FARMS scholars, FARMS employees, FARMS volunteers


We often receive questions from Insights readers about one aspect or another of the research that FARMS sponsors. We plan to address some of these questions, and the larger concepts that lie behind them, periodically in this column on "FARMS research notes." In this issue we consider some financial aspects of research support. In future issues we will address such topics as what counts as evidence, how to (and not to) draw conclusions from evidence, what is the nature of "peer review," and what is the purpose and meaning of scholarly "weasel words." We invite your comments and suggestions.
