  • Project: Fostering Transparent and Responsible Conduct of Research: What can Journals do?
    Description: Since their origin in the 17th century, publications in scientific journals have become the foundation of scholarly communication. Yet the publication process itself, duties and responsibilities of editors, and the preparation of manuscripts for submission have gone through many changes. The current drive towards study registration, sharing of protocols, manuscript pre-print, full transparency of reporting and the use of reporting guidelines, data sharing, and study replication, are seen as the future of scientific communication and methods of preventing scientific misconduct and undesirable research practices. The goals of this project are: 1) Study the current state of publication ethics, research integrity- and transparency-related policies of scholarly Journals (by analysing instructions to authors from a representative sample of journals in the humanities, social, natural, and life sciences); 2) Study the trends and changes in publication ethics, research integrity- and transparency-related policies of scholarly Journals (by conducting a systematic review of all studies indexed in MEDLINE, Web of Science and Scopus that have analysed instructions to authors of journals); 3) Study editors’, authors’ and reviewer’ perceptions and attitudes towards topics related to transparent and responsible conduct of research (by conducting large scale surveys, focus group, web-chats and acceleration room sessions); 4) Make (evidence-based) recommendations of how publishers and journals may implement publication principles and foster the integrity and transparency of research (by summarizing the evidence of the first 3 steps of the project).

  • TEST Sustainable Corn CAP Research Data (USDA-NIFA Award No. 2011-68002-30190)
    TEST The Sustainable Corn CAP (Cropping Systems Coordinated Agricultural Project: Climate Change, Mitigation, and Adaptation in Corn-based Cropping Systems) was a multi-state transdisciplinary project supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (Award No. 2011-68002-30190). Research experiments were located through the U.S. Corn Belt and examined farm-level adaptation practices for corn-based cropping systems to current and predicted impacts of climate change. Research data were collected from 2011 to 2015 at research sites in 8 states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The research coverage area spanned 95.3°W to 81.9°W and 38.5°N to 44.7°N. Research sites encompassed a varying set of management practices including crop rotation, cover crop, tillage, drainage, and nitrogen management, with several sites having landscape position incorporated as an additional treatment. These treatments were typically arranged in a randomized complete block design as a complete factorial or main-split plot with 3 to 4 replications per site. It should be noted that none of the sites were identical in terms of treatment structure or data collected as sites were a combination of previously and newly established experiments that aligned with project research goals. The dataset contains agronomic, soil, water, greenhouse gas, crop disease, and pest data collected from 30 sites. Standardized protocols were developed and followed by the project team for estimating C, N, and water footprints of corn production in the region and performing baseline monitoring. Variables measured during the five-year period include: grain and biomass yield, C and N content in crop grain and vegetation, soil water moisture and temperature, C and N concentration in soil, greenhouse gas fluxes, drainage water quality and quantity, groundwater table and others. Hourly or sub-hourly weather data are also provided for each location. In addition, the dataset includes site description (e.g. site location, plot area, soil type), field management information (e.g. planting, harvesting, tillage and fertilizer application dates, seeding rate, fertilizer and pesticide type and application rate), and experimental design (e.g. plot identifiers, experimental treatments, variables measured).

  • Data from PestLens biosurveillance articles from 2008-2018, plus genus and country matching lists
    Data scraped from an online repository 1,925 articles collected by the biosurveillance program, PestLens (2019) from 2008-2018, and then edited. The 1,612 edited records shown had usable information for report date, pest species taxonomy and type, and country of report. Also included are the genera and country matching lists.

  • Insect survey detections data for quantifying dispersal distances to predict delimiting survey radii
    Trapping survey detections data for five insect species and one mollusk (traps and other finds), with latitudes and longitudes and other spatial identifications removed per agreement with agencies. Species and survey data as follows: European grapevine moth (EGVM), Lobesia botrana, California, 2011-2013, Source: CDFA (California Department of Food and Agriculture) Giant African landsnail (GALS), Achatina fulica, Florida, 2011-2020, Source: FDACS (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services) Japanese beetle (JB), Popillia japonica, California, 2010-2019, Source: CDFA Medfly, Ceratitis capitata, California, 2015-2019, Source: CDFA Medfly, Florida, 1956-2011, Source: FDACS Mexfly, Anastrepha ludens, Texas, 2016-2019, Source: PPQ (Plant Protection and Quarantine, USDA) Oriental fruit fly (OFF), Bactrocera dorsalis, California, 2015-2019, Source: CDFA OFF, Florida, 1995-2018, Source: FDACS "Raw detections data v1.xlsx" is the collection of all detections. "Collected distances data v1.xlsx" is the data after clustering for proximity in time and space has been done. This data includes clustering information and distances calculated for each detection from the cluster centroid.

  • August 2021 data-update for "Updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators"
    Citation metrics are widely used and misused. We have created a publicly available database of over 100,000 top-scientists that provides standardized information on citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions and a composite indicator. Separate data are shown for career-long and single year impact. Metrics with and without self-citations and ratio of citations to citing papers are given. Scientists are classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. Field- and subfield-specific percentiles are also provided for all scientists who have published at least 5 papers. Career-long data are updated to end-of-2020. The selection is based on the top 100,000 by c-score (with and without self-citations) or a percentile rank of 2% or above. The dataset and code provides an update to previously released version 1 data under https://doi.org/10.17632/btchxktzyw.1; The version 2 dataset is based on the May 06, 2020 snapshot from Scopus and is updated to citation year 2019 available at https://doi.org/10.17632/btchxktzyw.2 This version (3) is based on the Aug 01, 2021 snapshot from Scopus and is updated to citation year 2020.
