Are we in the GSM Radar?

by SciELO in SciELO in Perspective

Google Scholar Metrics (GSM) offers alternative metrics to the JCR Impact Factor and the SJR, namely the h-5 index. To enter this world ranking that covers more than 40,000 journals it is only necessary to publish an average of 20 articles per year and be cited. However, there are hundreds of journals (our journals) that are not being indexed in GSM. They're off Radar. … Read More →... Read more »

I wrote this… I did not write this… now I write something else…

by SciELO in SciELO in Perspective

The emerging system of online scholarly communication incorporates a technological and ideologically approach different from the traditional one, where the articles initially appear as preprints versions and are modified until reaching the final version. In case of errors, these same technologies provide efficient opportunities to make partial or total corrections and even retractions, associating to the path of a document the history of its versions. It is time, therefore, to establish methodol........ Read more »

Internationalization as an indicator of journal performance in Brazil: the case of Psychology

by SciELO in SciELO in Perspective

The path to strengthening scientific publications almost always goes through internationalization.

Biofouling successional processes

by SciELO in SciELO in Perspective | Press Releases

To assess the successional pattern of fouling organisms we tested the hypothesis that depth, light intensity and predation influences the trajectory of the fouling community. The results suggest that each physical factor or biological process can change the successional trajectory, and the respective model (e.g., convergent, divergent, parallel, or cyclic) depends on the magnitudes of the determinants that act on the community at each stage of its trajectory. … Read More →...

Preprints – the way forward for rapid and open knowledge sharing

by SciELO in SciELO in Perspective

Preprints – versions of academic articles that have not yet been formally peer-reviewed before publication – are gaining acceptance in the academic world. They deliver open access as well as speedy publication, and their decades old success in physics has spurred on their spread in other disciplines. The development of preprints is accelerating; important funding agencies are in support of them, and also SciELO is planning to set up a preprint server for authors in Latin America and the Glob........

Crowdfunding and Tribefunding in Science

by Jalees Rehman in The Next Regeneration

Competition for government research grants to fund scientific research remains fierce in the United States. The budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which constitute the major source of funding for US biological and medical research, has been increased only modestly during the past decade but it is not even keeping up with inflation. This problem is compounded by the fact that more scientists are applying for grants now than one or two decades ago, forcing the NIH to enforce strict........ Read more »
