An Automatic Method to Identify Citations to Journals in News Stories: A Case Study of UK Newspapers Citing Web of Science Journals

, stories with duplicate titles in different editions (e.g., Scotland, Eire or Ulster regions) were deleted. Some news stories had the same contents but slightly different headlines, as shown in the Daily Mirror example below. Hence, news stories with the same abstract as a previous story were removed (in the example below: “Bosses at the Prostate Cancer Charity point out that men who ate the most eggs in the study were also more likely to smoke, be overweight, take less exercise and have a poor diet - all risk factors for the disease which kills 10,000 in the UK

Under-reporting of Adverse Events in the Biomedical Literature

reasons can be summarized as follows: if a potential foundational ‘cause’ for a disease (a foundational cause is a fundamental tangible cause that, in theory, is under human control, such as smoking, drinking, poor diet, excess exposure to radiation, overexposure to harmful chemicals, etc.) has not been researched, or its relevant data have not been entered into a tracking database, or has not been published in the appropriate venue, it will not show up in scientometric-type studies as a foundational ‘cause’. There is a vast body of literature describing the under

Understanding the Correlations between Social Attention and Topic Trends of Scientific Publications

more than doubled since 1980 where two million children under age five were overweight or obese in 2013 ( WHO, 2015 ). In America the large majority of American adults are obese, making it a nationwide epidemic. The condition has been implicated as a leading factor in deadly diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Obesity has become a focus of attention for broader audiences, including scientific researchers, social media users, medical experts, and patients themselves. Obesity-related topics, including diet, lifestyle, and child obesity, are frequently

Rediscovering Don Swanson:The Past, Present and Future of Literature-based Discovery

inside of a Larger Field of Investigation My own group has focused recently on linking sub-fields that reside within a larger field of investigation. For example, consider the field of prostate cancer research. Some articles study experimental tumors in mice; some follow people for effects of diet and smoking on risk; some study molecular changes inside tumor cells; some are medicinal chemistry studies, modifying drugs for better solubility or potency or fewer side effects. Not all people in the field of prostate cancer research read all these articles! More to the
