This study proposes a quantitative analysis of researcher mobility (i.e. transfer from one institution to another) and collaborative networks on the basis of author background data extracted from biographical notes in scientific articles to identify connections that are not revealed via simple co-authorship analysis. Using a top-ranked journal in the field(More)
The opened-up configuration of the artery wall has long been assumed to be stress-free. This is questionable in a microscopic level. The aortic media is made of concentric layers whose unit is called a lamellar unit, a pair of elastic lamina (EL) and a smooth muscle-rich layer (SML). Recently, we found that the EL was about 2.5 times stiffer than the SML.(More)
This paper proposes the use of temporal network analysis of conference sessions to examine the evolutionary process of emerging technologies as significant information for strategic R&D decision-making. This study examines the emerging processes of rapidly growing web-based technologies by analyzing World Wide Web (WWW) conferences over the latest(More)
This study analysed the technical and publication activities of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), the most influential academic publisher in engineering. We first constructed an original comprehensive database of periodicals (journal and magazine) and conference proceedings published by the IEEE between 1980 and 2008, which(More)
We investigated author information in scientific articles by approximately 7,000 researchers for a quantitative analysis of researchers’ international mobility. From top journals, we traced the movements of more than 2,200 researchers in the research domains of robotics, computer vision and electron devices. We categorized countries’ characteristics for the(More)
This study aimed to uncover the evolutionary processes behind the developments in the field of bioinformatics by analyzing prestigious conference presentations reflecting the prominent research in the field. Bioinformatics was selected as a representative interdisciplinary research field. Textual analyses on the abstracts of proceedings papers produced(More)
