*This study (2016.S30.02.05) has been supported by Department for Projects of Scientific Investigation, Artvin Çoruh University.
The aim of this study was to compare academic staff's (from sciences and social sciences) scientific habits of mind regarding socio-scientific issues. The sample consisted of 310 academic staff from six universities using convenient sampling method. The data were collected with the 32-item- Scientific Habits of Mind Scale developed by Çalık and Coll (2012) who ensured its validity and reliability for sciences and social sciences. The results of the independent samples t-test showed significant differences in 'skepticism, rationality, and objectivity' sub-factors in favor of the academic staff in social sciences. In light of the results, the current study recommends that interdisciplinary studies bridging sciences and social sciences should be carried out to develop various socioscientific viewpoints and scientific habits of mind.
