ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic many clinical studies have been initiated leading to the need for efficient ways to track and analyze study results. We expanded our previous project that tracked registered COVID-19 clinical studies to also track result articles generated from these studies. Our objective was to develop a data science approach to identify and analyze all publications linked to COVID-19 clinical studies and generate a prioritized list of publications for efficient understanding of the state of COVID-19 clinical research. METHODS: We conducted searches of ClinicalTrials.gov and PubMed to identify articles linked to COVID-19 studies, and developed criteria based on the trial phase, intervention, location, and record recency to develop a prioritized list of result publications. RESULTS: The performed searchers resulted in 1 022 articles linked to 565 interventional trials (17.8% of all 3 167 COVID-19 interventional trials as of 31 January 2022). 609 publications were identified via abstract-link in PubMed and 413 via registry-link in ClinicalTrials.gov, with 27 articles linked from both sources. Of the 565 trials publishing at least one article, 197 (34.9%) had multiple linked publications. An attention score was assigned to each publication to develop a prioritized list of all publications linked to COVID-19 trials and 83 publications were identified that are result articles from late phase (Phase 3) trials with at least one US site and multiple study record updates. For COVID-19 vaccine trials, 108 linked result articles for 64 trials (14.7% of 436 total COVID-19 vaccine trials) were found. CONCLUSIONS: Our method allows for the efficient identification of important COVID-19 articles that report results of registered clinical trials and are connected via a structured article-trial link. Our data science methodology also allows for consistent and as needed data updates and is generalizable to other conditions of interest.

ABSTRACT

This communication has a two fold purpose, on the one hand, to partially present the results of a project covering the current situation of the periodical publications industry across Spain and, on the other, to serve as a starting point for a subsequent analysis of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic onto this sector. This report concentrates on analysing the importance of distribution within the printed periodical publications sector and herein addresses the study of the evolution of the points of sale in Spain, drastically affected by the impacts of Digital Society. The approach focuses on a territorial perspective, with the analysis divided by autonomous regions. Points of sale data and associated trends are compared against population and area data in order to determine the evolution in terms of geographical coverage, given the particular nature of the type of product that is commercialized - to some extent it acts as a guarantor of a fundamental right, in terms of democratic quality, such as the access to information. The results, based on the available data comprising the time preceding the COVID pandemic, are not encouraging at all, reporting a marked decline in the number of points of sale across the nation and, subsequently, a drop in the number of stores per square kilometer and by population. This indicates a fall in the ease of access to these products by the general population: in some cases, these being the only ones that specific groups of society have when accessing information provided by printed publications, as well as for certain entertainment purposes, in particular in regions of the country identified with the 'Espana Vaciada' (the hollowed-out Spain) slogan.

ABSTRACT

In this study, we have examined the research trends of the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Education and Research for the year 2008-2020. We have used bibliometric indicators in two ways on the 1261 documents published in the journal. First, we have presented the performance analysis of the journal, like year-wise distribution of documents, authorship pattern, prolific authors, institutions, and countries. Secondly, the science mapping like keyword analysis, country collaboration, etc., was done using R and Vosviewer. The bibliographic and citation data of 1261 documents were extracted from the Scopus database.

ABSTRACT

Over the past decade, Open Government Data (OGD) strategies have become a continuing concern in administrative services. This is even truer than at any time. Given the current situation, data management, specifically consistent data publication, has been central to public institutions. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that data collected by public administrations could make valuable contributions. However, in Switzerland, the pandemic has highlighted the limitations of public organizations' capability to lead the publication of their data. Based on an ethnography and a literature review, this paper explores how data governance components impact OGD publication process and presents a model of OGD governance. For this purpose, we identify key data governance components necessary to OGD publication-structural, procedural, and relational-And illustrate how OGD challenges rarely arise from the publication of OGD or the open nature of data itself, but a lack of data governance. © 2022 ACM.

ABSTRACT

We model the growth of scientific literature related to COVID-19 and forecast the expected growth from 1 June 2021. Considering the significant scientific and financial efforts made by the research community to find solutions to end the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented volume of scientific outputs is being produced. This questions the capacity of scientists, politicians and citizens to maintain infrastructure, digest content and take scientifically informed decisions. A crucial aspect is to make predictions to prepare for such a large corpus of scientific literature. Here we base our predictions on the Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) and exponential smoothing models using the Dimensions database. This source has the particularity of including in the metadata information on the date in which papers were indexed. We present global predictions, plus predictions in three specific settings: by type of access (Open Access), by domain-specific repository (SSRN and MedRxiv) and by several research fields. We conclude by discussing our findings. Supplementary Information: The online version contains supplementary material available at 10.1007/s11192-022-04536-x.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 outbreak highlighted the importance of rapid access to research. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate research communication related to COVID-19, the level of openness of papers, and the main topics of research into this disease. METHODS: Open access (OA) uptake (typologies, license use) and the topic evolution of publications were analyzed from the start of the pandemic (January 1, 2020) until the end of a year of widespread lockdown (March 1, 2021). RESULTS: The sample included 95,605 publications; 94.1% were published in an OA form, 44% of which were published as Bronze OA. Among these OA publications, 42% do not have a license, which can limit the number of citations and thus the impact. Using a topic modeling approach, we found that articles in Hybrid and Green OA publications are more focused on patients and their effects, whereas the strategy to combat the pandemic adopted by different countries was the main topic of articles selecting publication via the Gold OA route. CONCLUSIONS: Although OA scientific production has increased, some weaknesses in OA practice, such as lack of licensing or under-researched topics, still hold back its effective use for further research.

ABSTRACT

Social media has witnessed an enormous increase in its usage in higher education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The rapid spread of social networking platforms has been observed due to the sudden implementation of online pedagogy for maintaining travel restrictions and social distancing norms. The relevant studies pursued on social networking and higher education were explored. The study was based on primary and secondary data. Subject matter experts were consulted to conduct virtual brainstorming sessions and the Delphi method with the help of social media to get the relevant set of keywords. Various stakeholders were consulted to derive novel findings regarding different perspectives. Further research studies were explored regarding these frequently used social networking platforms in higher education. A primary survey-based questionnaire was also circulated among the stakeholders of higher education institutions during the Coronavirus crisis. The secondary data was collected from leading research databases across the world. All the motivational studies and relevant research papers extracted for this study were explored thoroughly. Various statistical tools and required software were used. The analytical techniques done in the study were bibliometric analysis, year-wise analysis of research publications, citations, word cloud, thematic map, thematic evolution, keywords-based co-occurrence network, country-based publication analysis along with the collaboration network, co-word analysis-based mapping of the conceptual structure using multidimensional scaling technique, and Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). It was found that the research studies across the world increased gradually and various countries were pursuing collaborative research in this area. It was also found that WhatsApp, YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and ResearchGate were the major social networking platforms being used in the higher education institutions of India. It was also witnessed that social media can be very instrumental in the virtual publicity and digital marketing of higher education institutions. Futuristic strategies to develop effective technology acceptance models and information technology-based infrastructures for efficient implementation of online pedagogy can be done in higher education institutions with the help of social networking platforms.

ABSTRACT

This study presents the characteristics of publications in the Journal of Korean Astronomy Society (JKAS) from 1968 to 2021. JKAS has published 763 research articles over the past 54 years. In addition, 376 proceedings were also published with research articles. There were slight increases and decreases in the number of articles published in JKAS in the 1990s and 2000s, and in 2015 there was the highest recorded number of articles published for a given year. Since then, the number of articles has tended to decrease each year, up to and including the most recent period (2020–2021), which includes the Coronavirus pandemic. However, since theory centered research is primarily conducted without being swayed by society and policies, and that the proportion of authors belonging to educational institutions, such as universities, is high, the future direction of JKAS is encouraging. There are also positive developments including sustained researchers affiliated with international institutions at greater than approximately 23%, as well as improvements in the impact factor. Therefore, it is important to not be deterred by the decreasing trends of the quantitative aspect, but to respond positively by determining a future roadmap. © 2022, Korean Astronomical Society.

ABSTRACT

It has been quite a summer. The NHS has coped well with the health consequences of unprecedented UK temperatures, which is no mean feat considering the toll the past few years has taken on the morale and energy of front-line staff. Nevertheless, nurses have shown commitment and resilience, and remain dedicated to their profession despite the ongoing pay-and-politics circus.

ABSTRACT

Previous policy allowed such research to remain behind journal paywalls for a year after publication—in effect, a one year embargo before the public gained free access.1 Alondra Nelson, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, said, “The American people fund tens of billions of dollars of cutting edge research annually. To support scientific and research integrity, public access policies should transparently inform the public about critical information, said the White House statement, “including that which is related to the authorship, funding, affiliations, and development status of federally funded research.” Statement from Shelley Husband, senior vice president, government affairs, AAP, on decision by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to make private sector publications freely available. 25 Aug 2022. https://publishers.org/news/statement-from-shelley-husband-senior-vice-president-government-affairs-association-of-american-publishers-on-decision-by-white-house-office-of-science-and-techno 3 Nelson A, Executive Office of the President, Office of Science and Technology Policy.

ABSTRACT

The vast amount of COVID-19 research literature has made it difficult for medical experts, clinical scientists, and researchers to keep up with the latest research findings. We present two datasets for COVID-19 in this work: (1) first, we create a dataset from the up-to-date scientific publications on COVID-19, and (2) second, we build a gold-standard dataset of question-answering pairs annotated by volunteer biomedical experts on COVID-19 related scientific articles. We develop a question-answering (QA) pipeline that uses the first dataset to provide answers related to COVID-19 questions;we fine-tune MPNet (a Transformer model) on our gold-standard dataset and use it in the QA pipeline to enhance its reading capability. We also use this gold-standard dataset to evaluate the QA pipeline. The proposed MPNet version on the gold-standard dataset outperformed previous datasets and models, achieving an Exact Match/Fl score of 69.72/78.50 %, respectively © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

Purpose - Online food delivery (OFD) has witnessed momentous consumer adoption in the past few years, and COVID-19, if anything, is only accelerating its growth. This paper captures numerous intricate issues arising from the complex relationship among the stakeholders because of the enhanced scale of the OFD business. The purpose of this paper is to highlight publication trends in OFD and identify potential future research themes. Design/methodology/approach - The authors conducted a tri-method study - systematic literature review, bibliometric and thematic content analysis - of 43 articles on OFD published in 24 journals from 2015 to 2021 (March). The authors used VOSviewer to perform citation analysis. Findings - Systematic literature review of the existing OFD research resulted in six potential research themes. Further, thematic content analysis synthesized and categorized the literature into four knowledge clusters, namely, (i) digital mediation in OFD, (ii) dynamic OFD operations, (iii) OFD adoption by consumers and (iv) risk and trust issues in OFD. The authors also present the emerging trends in terms of the most influential articles, authors and journals. Practical implications - This paper captures the different facets of interactions among various OFD stakeholders and highlights the intricate issues and challenges that require immediate attention from researchers and practitioners. Originality/value - This is one of the few studies to synthesize OFD literature that sheds light on unexplored aspects of complex relationships among OFD stakeholders through four clusters and six research themes through a conceptual framework.
