RMIMR stats; my weblog 2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Single-Author Papers: A Waning Share of Output in all fields but especially Economics and Business; down from 70% in 1981 to under 30% in 2012

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

In 2012, ScienceWatch last revisited the topic of multiauthor papers—the trend toward scholarly publications listing authors whose numbers, in some cases, now reach into the thousands. In this report, we turn to the opposite end of the spectrum.

In the field of Social Sciences dominates, according to both the 1981 and 2012  measurements, with Economics & Business and Mathematics following closely. Each of those fields, in 1981, registered single authorship on upwards of 70% of its total papers.

By 2012, as Graph 4 makes plain, the rate of single authorship had fallen drastically in all the fields, with the greatest percentage drop in Economics & Business (42 points), and comparable reductions in Computer Science (40 points), and Mathematics (38). Social Sciences, from a high of 72% in 1981, also recorded a 30-points-plus decline to its 38% of single-authored papers in 2012.

Science as an open enterprise; towards all scientific literature online all data online, and for them to interoperate

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

The Science as an open enterprise report highlights the need to grapple with the huge deluge of data created by modern technologies in order to preserve the principle of openness and to exploit data in ways that have the potential to create a second open science revolution. Exploring massive amounts of data using modern digital technologies has enormous potential for science and its application in public policy and business. The report maps out the changes that are required by scientists, their institutions and those that fund and support science if this potential is to be realised.

Areas for action. Six key areas for action are highlighted in the report:

  1. Scientists need to be more open among themselves and with the public and media
  2. Greater recognition needs to be given to the value of data gathering, analysis and communication
  3. Common standards for sharing information are required to make it widely usable
  4. Publishing data in a reusable form to support findings must be mandatory
  5. More experts in managing and supporting the use of digital data are required
  6. New software tools need to be developed to analyse the growing amount of data being gathered

Knowledge transfer from from European universities and institutes to industry; practices & mechanisms

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

This study describes knowledge transfer from European universities and institutes to industry, focusing on the role of the Industrial Liaison / Technology / Knowledge Transfer Office function. It explores practices in European institutions and compares these with international ones, especially from the USA. The project is based upon a comprehensive literature review and a programme of detailed case studies of knowledge transfer strategies and practices. It addresses the wide range of knowledge transfer activities undertaken by public research organisations, in addition to IP exploitation and their different effects on innovation in the business sector. It presents a model of the transition of PROs’ knowledge transfer strategies from pure technology transfer based only on IP to a broader role in knowledge transfer and ultimately to a two-way process of knowledge exchange between PROs and industry and wider society. The report presents a number of policy options to support this process.

European Investments in joint and open research programmes and analysis of their economic impact

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

The study “Investments in JOint and open R&D Programmes and analysis of their economic impact” (the JOREP study) has been launched by the Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission (Economic Analysis Unit) to quantify and analyse the coordination and opening-up of national public funding which constitute a fundamental development towards a more integrated European Research Area. This study is part of a set of projects providing key information for policy making in the perspective of contributing to growth in Europe through innovation policies. The JOREP study addresses questions like: What is the EU member states’ engagement in transnationally coordinated programmes? What is the openness of their public R&D programmes? What needs do joint and open R&D programmes mainly respond to? What are the main motivations driving the joint undertaking of research and the opening of R&D programmes? Are there differences between scientific domains? The study aims at providing a sound quantitative basis for the monitoring of investments in joint and open research programmes in EU countries, as well as empirical evidence of the policy rationales and impacts of these programmes on the European Research Area. The project has carried out a comprehensive collection of data about joint and open programmes according to a set of standardised descriptors, and provided an analysis of motivations and impact of these programmes. The study covers eleven European countries corresponding to about 85% of national public funding in Europe and displaying various situations within ERA: medium-size countries with a well-developed science basis, large countries, Mediterranean countries, and Central and Eastern European Member States. These countries are (in alphabetical order): the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. This publication is the Final report of the study. It is accompanied by the study’s methodological Handbook. These two publications, as well as a short Summary report of the study, the detailed Analytical Report and 11 Country reports are available at: http://www.ec.europa.eu/ research/innovationunion/index_en.cfm?pg=other-studies
