The journal coverage of Web of Science and Scopus: a comparative analysis
Results indicate that the use of either WoS or Scopus for research evaluation may introduce biases that favor Natural Sciences and Engineering as well as Biomedical Research to the detriment of Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities.
The Oligopoly of Academic Publishers in the Digital Era
Analysis of 45 million documents indexed in the Web of Science over the period 1973-2013 shows that in both natural and medical sciences (NMS) and social sciences and humanities, Reed-Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell, Springer, and Taylor & Francis increased their share of the published output, especially since the advent of the digital era (mid-1990s).

Giving a TED presentation appeared to have no impact on the number of citations subsequently received by an academic, suggesting that although TED popularizes research, it may not promote the work of scientists within the academic community.
Concentration of research funding leads to decreasing marginal returns
The results show that in terms of both the quantity of papers produced and their scientific impact, the concentration of research funding in the hands of the so-called ‘elite’ of researchers generally produces diminishing marginal returns.

It is shown that scientific work is more highly divided in medical disciplines than in mathematics, physics, and disciplines of the social sciences, and that, with the exception of medicine, the writing of the paper is the task most often associated with authorship.
A Community of Curious Souls: An Analysis of Commenting Behavior on TED Talks Videos
Commenters were more likely to discuss the characteristics of a presenter on YouTube, whereas commenters tended to engage with the talk content on the TED website, and people tended to be more emotional when the speaker was a woman.
The rise of the middle author: Investigating collaboration and division of labor in biomedical research using partial alphabetical authorship
It is shown that alphabetical ordering of middle authors is frequent in biomedical research, and that the prevalence of this practice is positively correlated with the number of authors in the bylines, and suggests that growth in authors’ lists are not due to an increase in secondary contributions but, rather, in equivalent increases of all types of roles and contributions.
Costly collaborations: The impact of scientific fraud on co‐authors' careers
Over the past few years, several major scientific fraud cases have shocked the scientific community. The number of retractions each year has also increased tremendously, especially in the biomedical…

Although OA may help in building global research capacity in GHR, the majority of publications remain subscription only and it is logical and cost-efficient for institutions and researchers to promote OA by self-archiving publications of restricted access.
On the Evolution of Library and Information Science Doctoral Dissertation Topics in North America (1960-2013).
It is shown that Information Science has surpassed Library Science to become the dominant research topic in LIS and that the academic background of doctoral advisors affects the interdisciplinarity of their student’s doctoral dissertations.
