A Bibliometric Framework for Identifying “Princes” Who Wake up the “Sleeping Beauty” in Challenge-type Scientific Discoveries

methods that become useful in biology. A sleeping beauty may need one or more “princes” and even “retinues” to be awakened. The PRs may be either conceptually related or direct-citation-related to the SB. In this study, the PRs include two documents of Hell himself, who believed and insisted on his theory, and finally succeeded. Although the other two PRs did not cite the SB in the first generation, they cited other documents of Hell, and these citations induced the citation leap of the SB. Hell did not co-author with Betzig’s group or Zhuang’s group; it is through a

Patent Citations Analysis and Its Value in Research Evaluation: A Review and a New Approach to Map Technology-relevant Research

briefly discuss recent work on the above issues. Tackling the problem of monitoring the technological state-of-the–art as recent as possible, Ko et al. (2014) argue that patent-citation networks are insufficient to capture the most recent technological information, particularly the direct and hidden impacts among technologies. To improve technology-impact networks they integrate patent co-classification, decision making algorithms, and social network analysis. The method is illustrated using all Korean patents in the United States patent database from 2008 to 2012

The effects of Guarana (Paullinia cupana) supplementation on the cognitive performance of young healthy adults – a Systematic Review

cupana) on cognition. A secondary objective is to compare guarana with caffeine on cognitive performance. Such a comparison aims to evaluate the role of different compounds found in guarana and their possible synergy with guaranine. Methods Type of Study The study was a systematic review. Searches were made in PubMed. Search terms were ‘Guarana’ or ‘Paullinia cupana’. The PubMed filter was customized to ‘Controlled Clinical Trial’. The search was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA criteria

Hypothetical bias and framing effect in the valuation of private consumer goods

willing to pay for CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Mascara (Please enter a specific amount in PLN) . I then randomly chose the transaction price and the participants who had the opportunity to buy the product. In the end, a number of actual transactions were executed. In treatments with a hypothetical valuation (HypoLow and HypoHi), the scheme was similar, but I used the direct declarative method of eliciting participants’ WTP for the product instead of the BDM procedure. I informed the subjects that their valuation was purely declarative. In valuation

Application of Virtual Reality in Competitive Athletes – A Review

.25) over the CAVE display method (0.25 ± 0.5). According to Brault et al. (2012) immersive and interactive VR provides the most realistic training environment. Firstly, the CAVE and HMD assisted with a headtracking system, produce high quality visualizations which are observed from the first‐person viewpoint and completely fill the user’s field of view. Secondly, real tracking of moving athlete provides a direct link between VE perceptual information and undertaken action. In implementation of a basketball free‐throw simulator, visual feedback was used as a simple form
