How working as a research technician can bolster your scientific career

  
Nature, Vol. 560, No. 7719. (21 August 2018), pp. 517-519, https://doi.org/10.1038/d41586-018-05991-4

Abstract

A technician job can become a satisfying career — or act as a solid stepping stone. [Excerpt] [...] Research technicians in academia, industry, the non-profit sector and government do much of the daily leg-work of science. Their tasks include analysing soil or rock samples, testing medical devices, helping to design bioreactors and optimizing the shelf life of reagents. Titles vary almost as much as the job descriptions. Examples include ‘research technologist’, ‘research associate’, ‘research scientist’ and ‘member of the technical staff’. [...] ...

 

Citations must default to the online publication date

  
Nature, Vol. 558, No. 7711. (27 June 2018), pp. 519-519, https://doi.org/10.1038/d41586-018-05387-4

Abstract

[Excerpt] With online delivery increasingly dominating scientific publishing, most long-established journals run papers in both print and online formats — but not necessarily simultaneously. This can affect how researchers are given scientific priority. [...] In our experience, the time lag between the two can be as long as 6 months. This might be crucial for annual research evaluations, for instance, when a paper is published online at the end of one year and in print the year after [...] ...

 

AI could threaten pharmaceutical patents

  
Nature, Vol. 558, No. 7711. (26 June 2018), pp. 519-519, https://doi.org/10.1038/d41586-018-05555-6

Abstract

[Excerpt] Artificial intelligence could help to identify more-effective candidate drugs [...] A patent is granted only when a compound’s application can be classified as both ‘new’ and ‘invented’. A highly effective compound thrown up by an AI algorithm could indeed be new. Whether it is ‘invented’, however, is debatable. This is because the inventor might be considered as either the algorithm (so not a person) or its programmer. [...] ...

 

Impact of population growth and population ethics on climate change mitigation policy

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 114, No. 46. (14 November 2017), pp. 12338-12343, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1618308114

Abstract

[Significance] We investigate how future population growth is relevant to climate change policy. The answer depends importantly on ethical questions about whether our ultimate goal should be to increase the number of people who are happy or rather to increase the average level of people’s happiness. We calculate the best (optimal) emissions reduction pathway given each of these two different goals that society might have and calculate how much cheaper it would be to avoid dangerous interference with the climate given a ...

 

How population growth relates to climate change

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 114, No. 46. (14 November 2017), pp. 12103-12105, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1717178114

Abstract

[Excerpt] Currently, around 7.5 billion people live on our planet and scenarios for the future show a plausible range from 8.5 to over 12 billion before the population will level off or start to decline, depending on the future course of fertility and mortality (1, 2). These people will also have to cope with the consequences of climate change that may be in the range of 1.5 °C to more than 3 °C, depending on the scale of mitigation efforts. The ...

 

Research software sustainability: report on a knowledge exchange workshop

  
(February 2016)

Abstract

[Excerpt: Executive summary] Without software, modern research would not be possible. Understandably, people tend to marvel at results rather than the tools used in their discovery, which means the fundamental role of software in research has been largely overlooked. But whether it is widely recognised or not, research is inexorably connected to the software that is used to generate results, and if we continue to overlook software we put at risk the reliability and reproducibility of the research itself. [\n] The adoption of software is accompanied by new risks - many of ...

 

Why linked data is not enough for scientists

  
Future Generation Computer Systems, Vol. 29, No. 2. (February 2013), pp. 599-611, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.future.2011.08.004

Abstract

[Abstract] Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, does not ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attribution and methods to provide the reproducibility that enables validation of results. In this paper we make the case for a scientific data publication model on top of linked data and introduce the notion of Research ...

Abstract

List of indexed keywords within the transdisciplinary set of domains which relate to the Integrated Natural Resources Modelling and Management (INRMM). In particular, the list of keywords maps the semantic tags in the INRMM Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD). [\n] The INRMM-MiD records providing this list are accessible by the special tag: inrmm-list-of-tags ( http://mfkp.org/INRMM/tag/inrmm-list-of-tags ). ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
The library of INRMM related pubblications may be quickly accessed with the following links.

Full-text and abstracts of the publications indexed by the INRMM meta-information database are copyrighted by the respective publishers/authors. They are subject to all applicable copyright protection. The conditions of use of each indexed publication is defined by its copyright owner. Please, be aware that the indexed meta-information entirely relies on voluntary work and constitutes a quite incomplete and not homogeneous work-in-progress.
INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
