THE REPORT BY T. SEARCHINGER ET AL. (“Use of U.S. croplands for biofuels increases greenhouse gases through emissions from land-use change,” 29 February, p. 1238) provides one scenario for the conversion from a fossil-based energy economy to a biobased, renewable-energy economy. However, Searchinger et al. failed to include several important considerations. It is inaccurate and misleading to allocate the cutting down of Brazilian rainforest, which is done often for timber production, to…

Food security and biodiversity: can we have both? An agroecological analysis
We present an extensive literature review exploring the relationships between food insecurity and rapid biodiversity loss, and the competing methods proposed to address each of these serious
What makes some fisheries references highly cited
We identify the 199 most-cited fisheries references up to July 2014, topped by Nelson's Fishes of the World. Few book chapters, databases or reports were included, but review articles and field
Quantitative author inputs to Earth science research publications: survey results, insights and potential applications

  • 2020
Abstract Results are reported of what is believed to be the first survey of the quantitative contributions Earth scientists make to their research publications. Based on a return of 26 (from 45; 254
Productivity and influence in bioinformatics: A bibliometric analysis using PubMed central
A comprehensive and in‐depth bibliometric analysis of the field of bioinformatics by extracting citation data from PubMed Central full‐text shows the overall trends were dissimilar, while trends between the periods 2004 to 2007 and 2008 to 2011 were similar.
Dynamic credit allocation in scientific literature
It is found that the proposed method can significantly outperform the state-of-the-art method in identifying the authors of Nobel-winning papers that are credited for the discovery, independent of their positions in the author list.
A bibliometric analysis
The h-index had the least relation to other metrics and failed to differentiate authors’ IRAs among groups, particularly in a short time period, and the xindex combined with the Kano map is recommended in research for a better understanding of the authors' IRAs in other journals or disciplines.
Profit (p)-Index: The Degree to Which Authors Profit from Co-Authors
It is shown that the contribution of co-authors to the work of a particular author is generally substantial and that researchers’ relative rankings change materially when adjusted for the contributions ofCo-authors, suggesting that exceptional researchers are characterized by a relatively high degree of scientific independency/originality.
A nonlinear collective credit allocation in scientific publications
A nonlinear collective credit allocation method (NCCA method) that assigns different strength to citing papers according to papers’ scientific impact when measuring papers' similarity is proposed.
A proposal for calculating weighted citations based on author rank
A recent article in EMBO reports by Bornmann & Daniel (2009) commented that “the h index […] is already regarded as the counterpart to the [impact factor]”, but this use confuses two distinct concepts: the citation number for a paper and that for an author.


Crop-Based Biofuel Production under Acreage Constraints and Uncertainty
A myriad of policy issues and questions revolve around understanding the bioeconomy. To gain insight, we develop a stochastic and dynamic general equilibrium model and capture the uncertain nature of
A Note on Rising Food Prices
The rapid rise in food prices has been a burden on the poor in developing countries, who spend roughly half of their household incomes on food. This paper examines the factors behind the rapid
What's Driving Food Prices?
Preface : The temperature of the rhetoric in the food-versus-fuel debate has been rising right along with the prices of corn and oil. Farm Foundation is not about heat or fueling fires. Our mission
Citations: poor practices by authors reduce their value
In formulating their criteria, publications from institutes and by individuals in local and national journals should also be taken into account, and the total number of publications in national journals not counted by the ESI would then be considered and weighted in order to arrive at a more appropriate index.
The mismeasurement of science
Multiple Authors, Multiple Problems
I take the “joint and several” position on assigning blame for research misconduct, knowing that it puts me in a quirky minority; a different view of the problem, and perhaps of the solution, comes as the authorship rubber really meets the road.
Reviewers' reports should in turn be peer reviewed
It is suggested that, when assessments are complete, journals ask reviewers to review the other reviewers’ comments before the editor makes a decision about publication, to help editors better assess the suitability of a recommended rejection, revision or acceptance.
Second thoughts on who goes where in author lists
It is suggested that, when assessments are complete, journals ask reviewers to review the other reviewers’ comments before the editor makes a decision about publication, to help editors better assess the suitability of a recommended rejection, revision or acceptance.
The demise of the lone author
The bottom line for both is that — mathematicians excepted — the 'lone' author on a Nature manuscript is virtually a thing of the past.
Does the h index have predictive power?

    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 2007
The findings indicate that the h index is better than other indicators considered (total citation count, citations per paper, and total paper count) in predicting future scientific achievement.
