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

with the ProQuest “Narrow results” menu. The full text ProQuest records for the search results were downloaded to generate a set of news stories potentially mentioning one or more of the 13,051 academic journals. 3.3 Stage 3: Identifying correct journal matches The Stage 2 method returns some false and ambiguous results. For instance, the query FT(“JOURNAL OF CANCER”) matched multiple journals (e.g., EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF CANCER, BRITISH JOURNAL OF CANCER). Adding the term “journal” after journal names (“Science journal” or “Nature journal”) also sometimes

Factors Influencing Cities’ Publishing Efficiency

’ performance in science, what can city administrations do to improve it? If cities have very different sizes and populations (even publication output) worldwide, what kind of territorial demarcation can be introduced to balance these differences? Acknowledgement The publication is supported by the EFOP-3.6.1-16-2016-00022 project. The project is co-financed by the European Union and the European Social Fund.

Open Peer Review in Scientific Publishing: A Web Mining Study of PeerJ Authors and Reviewers

has also provided useful tools to collect data to help in the analysis of these processes. Led by the European Union, Open Science is moving towards the ambitious goal “to open access to scientific publications as the default option by 2020” ( Council of the European Union, 2016 , p. 12; Enserink, 2016 ). Publications for Open Access will still need peer review. In a recent article in Nature , Rennie (2016) states that OPR provides a more ethical approach to peer review and calls for rigorous studies to compare various models (open, blind, pre- and post

Measuring Scientific Productivity in China Using Malmquist Productivity Index

banking industry through the proposed approach combining MPI with DEA window analysis technique, which can treat the panel data with the advantage of dealing with small-size samples. The labor productivity in the European Union area was investigated in Färe et al. (2006) . Cooper et al. (2007) showed that the MPI is an index which represents the Total Factor Productivity (TFP) growth of a DMU, and it can reflect (1) the progress or regress in technical efficiency, (2) the changes of the frontier technology between two time periods under the multiple inputs and

Does Monetary Support Increase the Number of Scientific Papers? An Interrupted Time Series Analysis

1 Introduction The number of scholarly papers and citations thereto are indirect indicators of the level of scientific development of countries. The number of scholarly papers with Turkish affiliations listed in citation indexes has increased tremendously over the years and Turkey ranks 18th in the world in terms of number of publications. Over 36,000 papers were published in 2015 alone, although their scientific impact in terms of the number of citations they gather is well below the average of the world, the European Union (EU) and the OECD countries
