The Pandemic Penalty: The gendered effects of COVID-19 on scientific productivity
Academia serves as a valuable case for studying the effects of social forces on workplace productivity, using a concrete measure of output: scholarly papers. Many academics, especially women, have
A critical analysis of the impacts of COVID-19 on the global economy and ecosystems and opportunities for circular economy strategies
The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic on the 11th of March, 2020, but the world is still reeling from its aftermath. Originating from China, cases quickly spread across
arXiv E‐prints and the journal of record: An analysis of roles and relationships
It is shown that the proportion of WoS papers found on arXiv varies across the specialties of physics and mathematics, and that only a few specialties make extensive use of the repository.
The socio-economic implications of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19): A review
The socio-economic effects of COVID-19 on individual aspects of the world economy are summarised to show the need for medical supplies has significantly increased and the food sector has seen a great demand due to panic-buying and stockpiling of food products.
The career cost of COVID-19 to female researchers, and how science should respond
The UK funder Wellcome wants applicants, such as researchers at the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit in Bangkok, to specifically mention the impacts from COVID-19 on their progress to date.

  • 2021
The present study shows how an exceptional phenomenon has a disruptive impact on bibliometric indicators, such as the h-index and the Journal Impact Factor, and confirms the plead for responsible metrics of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
Social consequences of mass quarantine during epidemics: a systematic review with implications for the COVID-19 response
Abstract Four billion people worldwide have experienced coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) confinement. Such unprecedented extent of mobility restriction to curb the COVID-19 pandemic may have
On the Use of ArXiv as a Dataset
This work provides a pipeline which standardizes and simplifies access to the arXiv's publicly available data, and uses this pipeline to extract and analyze a 6.7 million edge citation graph, with an 11 billion word corpus of full-text research articles.
Forecasting and control
This chapter discusses forecasting and control. It provides analysis of observations or measurements that are being recorded sequentially in time. Time series problems arise in a wide variety of
Fast Direct Methods for Gaussian Processes
This work shows that for the most commonly used covariance functions, the matrix C can be hierarchically factored into a product of block low-rank updates of the identity matrix, yielding an O(n log2 n) algorithm for inversion and enables the evaluation of the determinant det(C), permitting the direct calculation of probabilities in high dimensions under fairly broad assumptions on the kernel defining K.
