Successful research papers cite young references
When it comes to publishing the most impactful scientific research and identifying the best up-and-coming research paths, it takes one to know one. That's what Northwestern University researchers found when they analyzed nearly 6 million citations among more than 156,000 published scientific papers. (2019-04-15)

Exact formula now available for measuring scientific success
Scientometrics research is the science of evaluating scientific performance. Physics methods designed to predict growth based on a scale-free network have rarely been applied to this field. Now, scientists in Poland have developed an analytical method using a previously developed agent-based model to predict the h-index, probably the most popular citation-based scientific measurement, using bibliometric data.

Can downloads predict impact for scientific articles?
While the number of times a scientific article is cited by other articles is currently the gold standard for ranking its impact, online publishing offers another measure: the number of unique downloads. A recent analysis in the online Journal of Vision finds that downloads are a good predictor of citations -- and they are available significantly faster. (2009-04-09)

The complex role of citations as measure of scientific quality
Allocation of resources in the scientific community is increasingly based on various quantitative indicators.

New mechanisms to control dental procedure spray emissions
Since the onset of COVID-19 the potential risk of dental procedure spray emissions for SARS-CoV-2 transmission has challenged care providers and policy makers alike. The study, 'Mechanisms of atomization from rotary dental instruments and its mitigation,' published in the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), found that there are multiple mechanisms for atomization of fluids from rotatory instruments and that parameters can be controlled to modify key spray characteristics during the current crisis.

Negative citations important to scientific progress should be tracked, says new study.
Negative citations are not necessarily a bad thing, says Nicola Lacetera, an associate professor of strategic management at the University of Toronto Mississauga who is also cross appointed to UofT's Rotman School of Management.

Automated method beats critics in picking great movies
Don't rely on the Academy Awards next month if you are seeking to know whether the movies deemed great today will survive the test of time. According to a new Northwestern University study, the best predictor of a movie's significance is how often a movie is referenced by other movies. In other words, a movie's significance is decided by today's and tomorrow's film directors -- not the critics. Northwestern's objective method of movie citations is best at predicting greatness.

Level of media coverage for scientific research linked to number of citations
An analysis of over 800 academic research papers on physical health and exercise suggests that the level of popular media coverage for a given paper is strongly linked to the attention it receives within the scientific community. P. Sage Anderson and colleagues at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, report these findings in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on July 1, 2020. (2020-07-01)

How social media helps scientists get the message across
Analyzing the famous academic aphorism 'publish or perish' through a modern digital lens, a group of emerging ecologists and conservation scientists wanted to see whether communicating their new research discoveries through social media -- primarily Twitter -- eventually leads to higher citations years down the road.

Paid access to journal articles not a significant barrier for scientists
They say the best things in life are free, but when it comes to online scientific publishing, a new research report in the FASEB Journal suggests otherwise. The report shows that free access to scientific journal articles leads to increases in downloads, but not to increases in citations (their use), a key factor used in scientific publishing to assess a research article's relative importance and value. (2011-03-30)
