“There are various driving forces behind the growth [of OA in China]. Government funding is definitely the most important one…”
(Guest post by Wlodzimierz Klonowski, posted from EPJ Nonlinear Biomedical Physics) Abstract Genius is defined as a person of outstanding mental skills. These skills result from genius’ brain structure and physiology that are determined by genetics. It seems that environment and education may only inhibit development of a genius. Based on a simple model of brain phase space… Read more »
A new survey finds that as open access grows, a greater share of the researcher community is coming to see it as just as high quality as the subscription model.
Crime in the United States peaked in the 1980s and 1990s, and decreased during the following thirty years. What if the reason for this decrease is that fewer teenagers had opportunities to commit their first “debut”crimes? If so, why would that be? And what would that mean? These are some of the questions that Graham… Read more »
Cross-posted from Energy, Sustainability and Society, guest editorial by Thomas Hoppe of the University of Twente, and Ellen van Bueren of the Delft University of Technology. Abstract Cities form the key context within which social, economic and environmental challenges for sustainable development will manifest in the years to come. As they face the grand societal challenges of climate change and… Read more »
Gold nanorods can be used as remote controlled nanoheaters delivering the right amount of thermal treatment to cancer cells, thanks to diamond nanocrystals used as temperature sensors.
The Materials Data Challenge is an “outside of the box” approach to materials research. Instead of taking the traditional approach of relying on new experiments and simulations, challenge participants are asked to scour existing data sources and apply advanced analysis techniques to arrive at new advances in materials science and engineering knowledge.
