Understanding Scientific Methodology in the Historical and Experimental Sciences via Language Analysis
J. Dodick, S. Argamon, P. Chase 2009 Science and Education v. 18, no. 8, p. 985-1004
This paper covers the same material as Argamon et al. (2008), though it is written in a more approachable style for the science education research audience. The authors include a review of studies of scientific practice, which informs their interpretation of scientific manuscripts. They define four questions that help distinguish between experimental and historical sciences.
