Experienced Registered Reports editors and reviewers come together to discuss the format and best practices for handling submissions. The panelists also share insights into what editors are looking for from reviewers as well as practical guidelines for writing a Registered Report. ABOUT THE PANELISTS: Chris Chambers | Chris is a professor of cognitive neuroscience at Cardiff University, Chair of the Registered Reports Committee supported by the Center for Open Science, and one of the founders of Registered Reports. He has helped establish the Registered Reports format for over a dozen journals. Anastasia Kiyonaga | Anastasia is a cognitive neuroscientist who uses converging behavioral, brain stimulation, and neuroimaging methods to probe memory and attention processes. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher with Mark D'Esposito in the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at the University of California, Berkeley. Before coming to Berkeley, she received her Ph.D. with Tobias Egner in the Duke Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. She will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego starting January, 2020. Jason Scimeca | Jason is a cognitive neuroscientist at UC Berkeley. His research investigates the neural systems that support high-level cognitive processes such as executive function, working memory, and the flexible control of behavior. He completed his Ph.D. at Brown University with David Badre and is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Mark D'Esposito's Cognitive Neuroscience Lab. Moderated by David Mellor, Director of Policy Initiatives for the Center for Open Science.
The book presents a coherent theory of building information, focusing on its representation and management in the digital era. It addresses issues such as the information explosion and the structure of analogue building representations to propose a parsimonious approach to the deployment and utilization of symbolic digital technologies like BIM.
This course is designed to use technology as a productivity tool within a business environment through the use of database software. You will use database software for creating tables, forms, and reports by manipulating data through various query tools.
1. Produce a simple relational database that stores information.
2. Create queries that retrieve specified information.
3. Create forms for entering data into the database.
4. Produce informative reports with the information in the database
The United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK) have a close bilateral partnership bound in history with overlapping similarities within the realms of copyright, language, legal system, and religion.
This book goes over a wide range of cataloging schemata, tools, and norms. It presents a concise but thorough view of the basics of library cataloging practice.
This is a code of best practices in fair use devised specifically by and for the academic
and research library community. It enhances the ability of librarians to rely on fair
use by documenting the considered views of the library community about best
practices in fair use, drawn from the actual practices and experience of the library
The text, labs, and review questions in this book are designed as an introduction to the applied topic of computer security (cybersecurity). With these resources students will learn ways of preventing, identifying, understanding, and recovering from attacks against computer systems. This text also presents the evolution of computer security, the main threats, attacks and mechanisms, applied computer operation and security protocols, main data transmission and storage protection methods, cryptography, network systems availability, recovery, and business continuation procedures.
This webinar (recorded Sept. 27, 2017) introduces how to connect other services as add-ons to projects on the Open Science Framework (OSF; https://osf.io). Connecting services to your OSF projects via add-ons enables you to pull together the different parts of your research efforts without having to switch away from tools and workflows you wish to continue using. The OSF is a free, open source web application built to help researchers manage their workflows. The OSF is part collaboration tool, part version control software, and part data archive. The OSF connects to popular tools researchers already use, like Dropbox, Box, Github and Mendeley, to streamline workflows and increase efficiency.
This video will go over three issues that can arise when scientific studies have low statistical power. All materials shown in the video, as well as the content from our other videos, can be found here: https://osf.io/7gqsi/
A perfect introduction to the exploding field of Data Science for the curious, first-time student. The author brings his trademark conversational tone to the important pillars of the discipline: exploratory data analysis, choices for structuring data, causality, machine learning principles, and introductory Python programming using open-source Jupyter Notebooks. This engaging read will allow any dedicated learner to build the skills necessary to contribute to the Data Science revolution, regardless of background.
The book offers a blend of theory and practice in guiding readers to apply design thinking principles to solving some of our world’s biggest problems. At the same time, readers are encouraged to become aware of new and emerging technologies that make prototyping and applying solutions a reality.
Differentiating open access and open educational resource can be a challenge in some contexts. Excellent resources such as "How Open Is It?: A Guide for Evaluating the Openness of Journals" (CC BY) https://sparcopen.org/our-work/howopenisit created by SPARC, PLOS, and OASPA greatly aid us in understanding the relative openness of journals. However, visual resources to conceptually differentiate open educational resources (OER) from resources disseminated using an open access approach do not currently exist. Until now.
This one page introductory guide differentiates OER and OA materials on the basis of purpose (teaching vs. research), method of access (analog and digital), and in terms of the relative freedoms offered by different levels of Creative Commons licenses, the most common open license. Many other open licenses, including open software licenses also exist.
The Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) Guide is designed to assist health care professionals and students become effective and efficient users of the medical literature. The guide provides an introduction to EBM and its core concepts. Topics include Levels of Evidence, Asking Clinical Questions, Searching PubMed, Clinical Filters, Additional Searching Techniques, Search Examples, Appraisal, and Pre-Appraised Summaries.
This is a video about Fair Use Rights created by Sara Benson, copyright librarian at the University of Illinois Library. This brief video explains fair use, risk assessment, and some key fair use cases.
This resource was initially created to help creative arts students critically engage with referencing and citation politics and celebrate in time for Eurovision in May 2021!
Five things you can learn from Eurovision about referencing include:
1. Both referencing and Eurovision are political
2. Question power and privilege and amplify diverse voices
3. Prioritise quality over quantity of sources and focus on content more than staging or style
4. Record and backup sources so you can learn from the past
5. Inspired by this year’s Eurovision theme Open Up, support open scholarship
This is a collection of all materials used in Health Information Technology by Dr. Chi Zhang at Kennesaw State University, including lecture slides, assignments, and assessments, including a question bank.
Topics covered include:
Clinical Financial Records
Patient Bedside Systems
Health Information Networks
HIPAA Privacy and Security
