Questions related to Papers
In Paper 1, I have hypothesized constructs as A impacts C mediated by B; this article is now under peer review. While I was writing this article I kept contacting the firms for additional samples and now I have 11 new samples .
In the new paper, I wish to include new set of constructs. I wish to study antecedents to construct A (A is same construct used in the paper that is under peer review) . The construct B is also same which is impacted by A and there is no construct C in this paper. In short the datasets A and B remains same with 11 additional samples. The methodology of both papers is same.
I need a quick publication so I cannot wait until the paper that is in process is accepted.
I would like to make systematic review based also on white papers, so I am seeking for a easily-browsed website containing white papers from different sources.
Which websites do you use when searching for white papers on topics related to business and technology?
The quality of conferences papers are low comparing with the jurnal papers although many of high experience and professors had high ranking are sharing in the conferences.
We intend to investigate about 10 questions that have the potential to be a part of papers or projects. The eager and decided mathematician can contact me for starting possible joint research.
I need to plot J-V characteristics curve for a solar cell model that I simulated in SCAPS-1D. Can anyone please help me explaining how can I extract J-V data to plot that curve? I would love to appreciate your suggestion regarding some relevant papers too.
Thanks in Advance
As the title says, I have performed multiple ILD tests on PAUP with different settings and all of them reflect congruence between chloroplastic genes and ITS sequences (P > 0.1). I was wondering what would the implications be for these sequences or the taxa involved? Does this mean that the rate of change in nuclear and plastidial sequences are comparable? What does the congruence tell me about the history of the genes?
I was not able to find many papers in plants where they have performed phylogenetic analyses with plastidial and nuclear sequences concatenated, so any suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your response
A question to journal editors.
I am the editor of a scientific journal. Like everybody else, we publish articles in PDF files. Now we have an opportunity to publish also in the MOBI and EPUB format. It is a format for e-readers e.g. Kindle, inkBook, ONYX etc. Of course, the journal has to pay extra for the service.
Is it a good idea? Do people read academic papers on e-readers? The journal is focused on civil engineering and architecture, so our papers also include equations.
I have worked on a phylogenetic analysis based on morphological and molecular characters and the review of a genus of Cicadas. As the research results, we will describe a new genus and 20 new species. I am facing trouble searching for a zoological journal that accepts papers with this amount of taxonomic information. The MS has around 80 pages.
Do you have suggestions of biological/zoological journals that commonly publish large papers that include taxonomy?
For now, I have in mind Zootaxa and Zoological Journal of Linnean Society.
I really appreciate any help you can provide.
Many papers use cutoff values for non-anxiety / anxiety with the STAI. Commonly used values are 36 and 40 for state and trait. However, many authors do not make it clear where these values came from.
I am looking for journals that will publish newly developed tool/server/web application/pipeline that are useful in biology, or a newly curated database with biological significance.
Can anyone kindly suggest some journals that publishes Bioinformatics and Computational Biology papers that will publish -
- Bioinformatics Tools/Servers (Machine Learning, Deep Learning based or else)
- Text Mining
- Pipeline etc.
I know a few such as:
- Nucleic Acids Research
- Nature Scientific Data
- Nature Computational Science
- Briefings in Bioinformatics
- BMC Bioinformatics
- PLOS Computational Biology
- Journal of Cheminformatics
If you know more, kindly suggest the journal names. Thank you in advance.
Recently, I found a lot of important papers in my area citing papers from CAMP-ISIJ. However, it is quite difficult to find a feasible way to downloac papers from this journal or so. Is there anyone who have an idea about it?
in the case of two-photon and three-photon absorption, in most of the papers, the absorption cross-section values follow with absorption coeffcint. whether is there any exceptional case is there? if so what causes it?
Hi, everyone. I like ants, so I keep ants as pets. I was thinking of doing genome editing of ants, and wanted to establish cultured cells. However, I only have experience in culturing mammalian cells, so I have no idea what to expect. I followed some papers and tried, but I could not establish a cell line that would proliferate. I would be grateful for your advice.
Can anyone share articles and papers that use Lyapunov's direct method to prove global stability analysis? Or is there any technique for constructing Lyapunov functions, especially for equations with saturation treatment functions. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
MFCA has been dominantly used for the manufacturing sector. But will it generate useful results when applied to the buildings sectors, considering its entire life-cycle, or is LCA and LCC are better suited. Any suggested papers on the same would also be helpful.
I have read many papers for this subject. However, many startups are proposing new DLTs for this aiam. Many are based on Ethereum ecossystem, but other ones can be proposed using Cardano, NEO, etc. There is also other DLTs not based on blockchains, for example IOTA. So, what are the best DLTs to develop a new research on fresh food chain with IoT and AI, for instance?
I read some papers about sol-gel method to make the ZnO thin film or seed layers. But I don't know what's the difference between using sol solvent and gel solvent to make the film?
In some papers, I saw this kind of protocol : "They were then first washed with PBS and treated with 0.9 % NaCl, before DNA denaturation was performed in 1.5 N HCl for 30 min at 37 °C." for immuno against thymidin analog.
I was wondering what is the purpose of NaCl treatment and what is the length of the treatment ?
Thanks a lot !
I have recently started my research in Surface Plasmon Resonance and I was wondering if someone can share some in-depth papers or ebooks regarding understanding the Math and concepts behind Surface Plasmons on various cases and surfaces. Actually, I am looking behind understanding the physics and math behind how they are created and their various cases and consideration. If someone can guide me through, that can be really helpful.
Thank you in advance
Greetings. I have to etch some regions of a heterostructure to make ohmic contacts. The sample has a Si capping layer which, due to exposure to the atmosphere, is actually a Silicon Oxide layer. Under this Si capping layer, there is a Ge-rich SiGe layer. I have available an 8% HF solution. Is this concentrated enough to etch the Si oxide away? I have seen this done in a few papers but they do not mention the concentration nor mention for how long I should dip the sample.
And one last question if I may: What about the SiGe layer? Will the HF passivate it and prevente native oxide growth? I know HF, HBr, and HCl can be used to clean Ge native oxide and it will prevent the regrowth for about 10min, I am not sure about the SiGe alloy.
Thank you very much.
While I have many reads on a number of papers there are two I've written concerning the history of psychiatry and the LGBT commmunity whicxh are never read.* The topic is clearly represented in the title of the papers, yet, there are never any reads on either of these papers. Can anyone offer a possible explanation why this is so and a way to rectify this situation? Surely it can't be for lack of interest. Many thanks, Bill
*I have double checked to make sure these papers are part of my collected papers...
I will need reading materials (book and journal papers) that elaborate the method to do Latent Class Cluster Models.
I am also planning to use LatentGold software to do the same. Any suggestions on that?
There are lots of distressed co authors out there who were promised equal credit but didn't get it in the end, and some were promised 2nd co author but found themselves listed as 3rd or even 4th. An interesting point is many new writers ( new to academe) don't know what kind of work generally merits credit for publications. Another problem lies in the order in which co-authors are listed. its commonly assumed that journals list authors in order of the perceived dominance of the author so 1st author has the highest credit. However on an hindsight even the best academic brains cannot put a formula to compare the relative values of physical, intellectual and practical contributions to these papers. So in case of your own institution when it comes to rewards or points or scores, how do they evaluate the co authors?
- What are the hot topics and future topic for the Recommendation System?
- Can we publish High Impact Factor Papers on Recommendation System?
- Any other topic suggestions for PhD Computer Science that benefit the student in long term?
Abrin is rip, which inhibits protein synthesis. HSP is regulator of protein folding. But I couldn't find a papers that links HSP and abrin.
I am modeling melting of an alloy. Can someone please tell me how does Fluent calculates material properties in the Mushy zone in case of melting of alloys? Does it automatically takes properties after we give Tsolidus and Tliquidus or we have to use an UDF for this?
The formula for mushy zone which I have seen in papers is
x = x_solid*(1 - liquidFraction) + x_liquid*liquidFraction
I see in the material properties dialogue box that we can only give a property for continuous temperature range? Any advice is much appreciated
Dear Research Community,
I am currently working on a pre-registered report for a study I would like to do in the near future. I think pre-registering my work is an excellent thing to do, but it is still new to me. This leads to my question: Does anyone in my network have experience with this type of publication? Are there any dos and don'ts that shouldn't be overlooked along the way? Have you reviewed any reports that have been pre-published?
I am very excited to hear from you all.
All the best and warm regards,
Dear RG members:
Vonsovskii, S. V. and Svirskii, M. S. 1961. About the spin of phonons. Soviet Physics of the Solid State. 3:2160. In Russian.
Do you know any article/book which uses explicit expressions containing Anisotropic Elastic Langragians L( Cij )?
For instance: cubic, hexagonal, or tetragonal ones? Other symmetries are also welcome.
L can be written in the 4th index range - ijkl or Voig - ij notations, but the math expressions must contain explicitly the elastic stiffness components Cij or compliances Sij (if S-1 C ~ 1) according to the point symmetry group.
For example: in the isotropy case: 2, in the cubic case 3, in the hexagonal case 6 and so on.
A lagrangian is defined as L(Cij) = K( ρ v2 ) - U( Cij ), therefore the potential term U(Cij) does have to include an expression invariant to the point group symmetry considered.
I did an intensive search on the web, so far only two papers with two expressions (isotropic and cubic cases) both papers from the '60s.
Thank you all so much for the interest.
I am looking for data/case studies that show the influence of national culture on supply chain management. Unfortunately, I find very little on this, and I would be particularly interested in the influence of the Hofstede dimensions. Can anyone recommend me some papers on this?
I am very new to this writing and publishing papers so let me know the journals to publish without so many rules and stuff. Thanks in advance.
Please upload some review papers that are available for synthetic strategies for molecular polygons and molecular polyhedra.
I have read many papers but I want something to start with so that can gain some experience for my future projects. I am a Master's student and want some hands-on dry lab experience.
In the literature there are papers that use antibodies for MHCI and others use antibodies for MHCII as a marker of microglial activation in flow cytometry. However, nobody discuss why use one over the other. Any thoughts?
Recently I am trying to use machine learning in the field of battery. I have gone through several research articles related to this. Most of the papers predicted voltage, State of Charge (SOC), State of Health (SOH) and Remaining useful life (RUL). But I have decided to predict capacity of the battery. Is there any drawback for the prediction of this particular parameter ? If anyone can suggest anything regarding this, I will be grateful. Thanks in advance.
Hello, anyone interested in doing research collaborations? I have done and published some papers regarding deep learning, computer vision, IoT, and security.
Here is my page:
This is also my recent publication in Elsevier.
Please explain why In Most of the papers of Tangent hyperbolic fluid the results are for Pr=0.7. Is this value of Pr physically realistic for the study of MHD flow? Is fluid with Pr=07 electrically conducting? Give example of such fluid.
At first, I thought the interest score should be a valuable metric, but the problem is, there are many researchers that have very high scores, but they don't actually write many papers. They are invited to work on a paper with a team of hundreds. Thus, their name appears on tens if not many tens of publications per year.
By example, if there are 100 researchers, then the researcher should get 1/100 of a score when compared to a single author paper. A ranking adjustment should be considered as well. But in the end, if you don't factor the number of researchers into the score, then you have crazy rankings that are simply irrelevant.
Thoughts on factors to consider are invited.
Does it depend on co-authors, journals, citations or follower? I have seen many people who has no single research paper, no citation and only one co-authorship and new-bee without a follower in RG has higher score than those with a number of papers, with citations and followers?
I have applied ADI method in lid driven cavity filled with incompressible fluid in my recent papers. I want to apply ADI method in case, the cavity is filed with Nanofluid. But I am not getting the results.
I have searched the reason for this and found that the coefficient of vorticity transportation equation have very large magnitude near 6k.
But these coefficient have values less than 1 in my published papers.
Please give your suggestions.
I was wondering if it were possible to get DOI for my published paper? and here is the answer from Cross Reference,
Hi Massoud Thank you for your interest in Crossref membership. Crossref is a membership organization for scholarly publishers and, unfortunately, membership is not open to individuals. This is because membership brings with it various obligations and long-term commitments (see our membership terms) which may be difficult for individuals to fulfill. If your content is published in a journal, please contact the journal publisher to see if they are already a Crossref member, or if they would like to join. If your content is published by your institution, perhaps your institution might consider Crossref membership, and you might then register your DOI through them? If you are looking for a DOI for unpublished work, you might consider using Figshare to register a DOI. I hope this helps.
I saw that some papers use both cpDNA and nrDNA in a single phylogenetic study. Why not just choose one? What are the functions of each type of DNA? What is the benefit of using both?
I read a lot of evolutionary/ecological academic papers, sometimes with the specific aim of seeing how statistics are being used 'in the real world outside of the textbook. I normally take the statistics in papers as gospel and use the papers to help in my statistical learning. After all, if a paper has taken years to write and has gone through rigorous peer review, then surely the statistics are going to be rock solid? But in the past few days, I've questioned my assumption, and wondered how often the statistical analysis published in academic papers is suspect? In particular, it might be expected that those in fields such as ecology and evolution have spent less time learning statistics and more time learning their fields.
How often do people find suspect statistics in academic papers?
I was wondering which is the best solution to regenerate the glycerol in excess resulting from the enzymatic esterification between FFA and glycerol.
Perhaps a distillation?
Do you have tips or papers where I could find a method ?
Thanks in advance for your feedbacks.
Similar to low field electron transport i am trying to get hole mobility using iterative method. suggest papers related, or any advice related to scattering mechanisms in this calculation
bioRxiv is an open access preprint repository for biological science papers starting in November 2013 and hosted by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. How important, useful and informative are these preprints, which are not peer-reviewed, but are screened and checked against plagiarism?
bioRxiv seems to fill an important need based upon the number of submitted papers. Do you submit preprints to this server? Do you think it help or harms research communications?
If so, how much are your bioRXiv papers read and cited verses the typical journals you would send to for a given paper? How much do you read and cite bioRXiv papers compared to other journals?
I'm planning to use this software for screening more than thousand papers identified through databases.
In some literature, it was found that HiPIMS results in low average grain size and it was explained by the renucleation due to high density flux of ions towards the substrate. However, in some papers it was explained that increased adatom mobility lead to lateral grain size increase. And it is known that adatom mobility is also caused by high density flux of ions towards the substrate which is characterisitc of HiPIMS.
So what is the relation between HiPIMS and the grain size in polycrystalline films?. Especially that this property plays a role in compressive stress and hardness.
I am teaching a class on biostatistics this semester and want to introduce an exercise where students critically evaluate the methods section of scientific literature. So, I am looking for examples of published papers with problematic experimental design or statistics (e.g. non random sampling, pseudo-replication, violation of assumptions, type 1 error, etc.). If you are not comfortable calling out scientists in public, please feel free to send me suggestions in a direct message. I'll keep a list for anyone who would find this useful in the future. Thanks for your help!
How preprints are different from other publications? Lot of peoples are adding preprint before publishing. What happen to preprints when they are accepted in some journal? Do we have remind the preprint then? Are papers in preprint also rejected for uploading?
I would like to perform a Design and implementation of Smart Farmer using Embedded System . if you have any documents or papers (I prefer thesis or any axpanded documents) about this area.
Specifically, how should we use them given they have not been peer-reviewed? Should we rely on the results reported in pre-prints for policy? I am really probing for thoughts on whether researchers believe that results of studies reported in pre-prints are reliable enough information to make policy decisions given they have not been peer-reviewed. How to cite does not concern me at this point nor am I concerned about papers that have undergone peer-review and are in final or near-final form awaiting journal layout and issue assignment.
Recently, I have written a research article. I want to produce preprint of it. I found various platforms for creating preprints of articles, including arXiv and Researchsquare. Personally, which platform do you prefer?
Its about the biodegradation of refractory or recalcitrant organics in RO reject.
I would like make a figure in which could be chosen plants, soil, roots and other parameters.
Power point is quite limited for scientific drawing. Would you have better option to propose?
Can anybody please, refer some good books or papers on QCA, specially discussing the 4-phase clocking and its detailed application?
What quality assessment tools are available for a meta-analysis when the papers contain case-control, cohort, x-sectional, prospective designs?
I am working on the need of Motivation in comtemporary business/ organizations.
I am looking for some papers talking on motivational theories and its importance.
Any insights or papers that may be useful, please do share.
Many thanks for your notes. Can I suggest that learning becomes more meaningful, when it is applied to real questions.
The attached papers present a challenge that might interest you.

In wireless communication channel modeling, capacity is calculated based on computed H matrix and SNR value.
H matrix is calculated through a different models - COST..WINNER..etc.
I am wondering how to calculate SNR at different locations of UE In a cell?
many papers assume a certain SNR before capacity calculation.
How one can calculate SNR in an urban macro environment in presence of scatterers with different BS-UE positions in distance and angle?
I am looking for SNR calculation throughout a cell for MIMO wireless channel using directive antennas.
This is my first attempt at a meta-analysis. Advice would be much appreciated!
I am looking at the effects of a specific mindfulness intervention on emotion regulation looking at the DERS questionnaire as the measure of emotion regulation.
I am analysing both the subscales scores and total scores.
I have 5 out of 10 papers that have provided the pre and post means and SDs for the subscale scores and 8/10 papers who have provided the pre and post means and SDs for the total scores.
How would I go about analysing this data? 3 studies have more than one mindfulness intervention condition and one has no control group but multiple mindfulness intervention conditions.
In a simple mediation analysis I have a significant indirect effect, but no direct or total effect. I know some studies report this indirect effect as evidence of mediation, but from the examples I found it appears this exists for cases of suppression. From Kenny's website suppression exists if c' is the opposite sign to ab (and cites MacKinnon et al., 2007). However, in my analyses the c' (the direct effect) is the same sign to ab. When c' is positive ab is positive, and in another analysis when c' is negative ab is negative. Can I conclude mediation from this? If so, does anyone have examples of papers that do this? Thanks in advance!
In ClinicalTrials, should I register just one protocol for a study which can result in several papers or should I register one protocol per planned paper?
Greatful for any input.
Please help me with simple step by step explanations on how to find left and right eigenevectors of Jacobian matrix evaluated at disease free steady state of a model for investigating backward bifurcation using Castillo-Chavez method. I had reviewed many papers and tried occasionally to follow through their write up, but to no avail.
Dear community, we are doing experiments where we measured the mouse serums and urines, but the results in the mouse urine from ELISA kit (for example: 0,88 mg/dl) are not comparables with the values that we obtained using a bioanalyzer (117,26 mg/dl), both data are from the same mouse. Also, this values from ELISA are not compare with other papers results where use colorimetric or enzymatic methods.
So I would like to know if you can help me to know the reasons from these differences? Or if someone had use the same kit and the results are the same?
Thank you for the any help or advice!
Taking into account papers that have been published in high-impact journals as well as those that have been rejected. I believe that one's institutional affiliation has an impact on an editor's decision to accept or reject a manuscript.
Is this statement correct? Or do you have a similar impression?
I saw some papers with colorful solvents for some application. Especially, for wetteblity test. I also intertsed to do that. Where and what type days shall I search? Thanks
I have seen in several papers that Scherrer´s equation is widely used for estimating the crystallite size (from XRD peak broadening) without taking care of its theoretical-experimental coherence. I see that the theoretical hypothesis of this equation is generally not considered and incorrectly extended to any case, blearing the real validity of this approach for estimating crystallite size.
For example, this model completely neglects the influence of lattice strains (or dislocations) on the XRD peaks broadening, which is considered in other models like that proposed by Williamson-Hall. It is known that lattice strains can introduce significant peak broadening, especially for high diffraction angles (θ). Moreover, I have not found any exact and rigorous criterion to consider under what conditions the peaks broadening is mainly due to crystallite size concerning lattice strains.
Regarding this point, let me doubt of the validity of Scherrer´s equation for estimating crystallite sizes in any context, as commonly done.
What do you think about this issue?. Are you agree or disagree?. Share your opinion!
Dear scientific community,
As a novice researcher, I would like to ask you about some clarification and suggestions. There are two types of publications: conference papers and journal papers. Which one is better to focus on? This is my first question.
As I understand, if I want to participate at a conference, I need to submit a paper after my presentation. I will not be able to use it again as a journal article. I will go directly and ask, what is the point of conference papers? Do you find a conference and then write a conference paper, or do you write a conference paper at first and then participate? These are my second and third questions.
If I go with a journal article, can I present its results at conferences but reject to submit any conference papers? This is my fourth question.
I need to participate at conferences and to write journal articles. However, I see them as two different paths and I do not find connections between them. It is as if I go with a conference paper, I should stick only to it. If I stick to the journal article, I should go only with it. Two different types of work. Why then I need conference papers if journal articles give more points. I am confused and try to understand more how to plan my work, what strategy to use. I hope for your help. Thank you.
I often come across those two fascinating terms (rather associated with the disciplines of geography, geology?) in titles of papers on literature and literary criticism. Although I often read those papers with interest and enthusiasm, the difference between the two terms which are commonly used with prepositional phrases as in "topography of desire", "cartography of love and loss", "topography of pain.." etc. remains blurred to me.
What would make you (or any researcher, writer interested in literary criticism) choose one over the other? Or, when would you opt for 'cartography' rather than 'topography', for instance? Your decision, would be based on what?
Thank you all!
