This work analyzes the tourist sector, the employment generated by the tourism industries, and its relationship with tourism receipts. The hypothesis is that there are tourist subsectors with a potentially higher level of income. The article studies the impact of the distribution of the employed population in the different subsectors of the tourism...

The present study analyses the influence of taking the PISA test in a language different from the one spoken at home on 15-year-old Spanish students’ academic performance. In particular, this could be the case of immigrant students and of students living in regions where a co-official language exists alongside the Spanish language. In the analysis...

PhD students report a higher prevalence of mental illness symptoms than highly educated individuals in the general population. This situation presents a serious problem for universities. Thus, the knowledge about this phenomenon is of great importance in decision-making. In this paper we use the Nature PhD survey 2019 and estimate several binomial...

There has been a generalization in the use of two publication practices by scientific journals during the past decade: 1. 'article in press' or early view, which allows access to the accepted paper before its formal publication in an issue; 2. 'open access', which allows readers to obtain it freely and free of charge. This paper studies the influen...

Self-assessment activities are increasingly popular in the classrooms. But regarding self-assessment accuracy, mixed results are reported without clear reasons for this. This article addresses the impact of gender and performance on self-assessment accuracy. To evaluate self-assessment accuracy, peer and professor assessments are used as reference....

Purpose: The two most used citation impact indicators in the assessment of scientific journals are, nowadays, the impact factor and the h-index. However, both indicators are not field normalized (vary heavily depending on the scientific category). Furthermore, the impact factor is not robust to the presence of articles with a large number of citati...

Since Lawrence in 2001 proposed the open access (OA) citation advantage, the potential benefit of OA in relation to the citation impact has been discussed in depth. The methodology to test this postulate ranges from comparing the impact factors of OA journals versus traditional ones, to comparing citations of OA versus non-OA articles published in...

Grade retention is still common practice in some countries though longstanding experience tells us that it is a highly criticised practice for its unclear benefits, its important costs for the educational systems and its relation with school dropout. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to analyse which variables increase the probability of b...

The two most used citation impact indicators in the assessment of scientific journals are, nowadays, the impact factor and the h-index. However, both indicators are not field normalized (vary heavily depending on the scientific category) which makes them incomparable between categories. Furthermore, the impact factor is not robust to the presence o...

Resumen: Actualmente, los dos indicadores bibliométricos más empleados en la evaluación de revistas científicas son el índice de impacto y el índice h. Sin embargo, ambos indicadores dependen fuertemente del campo científico, lo que los hace no comparables entre campos. Además, el índice de impacto no es robusto a la presencia de artículos con un g...

Recent works from different disciplines deal with the long-term effects of childhood conditions. International studies that show the positive influence of pre-primary schooling are systematically based on students over 3 years old. The analysis of the impact on later academic outcomes for children under 3 years is almost non-existent. Besides, the...

Early schooling may influence the future academic results of students. In spite of this, there are very few studies providing evidence to demonstrate such an influence, with children under three being included in the notion of early schooling, as is the case in this study. We analyse the influence of this kind of education on the reading comprehens...

Question
I have received the comments to a paper I sent to a journal (indexed at the Web of Science) and, among other things, it says I have 1% of overlap with another work. It says which work is it, and, surprisingly, it is one chapter of my own PhD Thesis.
I would like to find a software that enables me to detect similarities among texts, to check what this journal could consider plagiarism, to be able to amend it.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
