Article
This study investigates the scientific mobility of Chinese returnees. Based on an analysis of scientific affiliation data in the Web of Science between 2008 to 2019, the paper explores the distribution of Chinese returnees from temporal and regional perspectives. The results confirm that there is an increasing number of Chinese migrant researchers...
Article
Reading habits are influenced by various aspects, such as personal characteristics, reading history and book characteristics. It remains uncertain that which factor determines reader's choice. In this primary work, we attempt to model the preferences based on readers’ demographical information to examine the impact factors on their reading habits....
Article
The purpose of this study is to explore the gender distribution of researchers in the field of gender studies. We used bibliometrics methods on a dataset of gender studies from Web of Science between 2007 and 2019. The results show that unlike other fields in scientific communities, gender studies are dominated by female researchers. The majorities...
Article
In this paper, we discuss how research methods are used in the Chinese library and information science (LIS) community, a fundamental question in the pursuit of a global overview of this interdisciplinary research domain. We used manual coding to identify research methods mentioned in 2,421 Chinese-language papers written by 53 prestigious Chinese...

Article
Ontology fusion in knowledge bases has become less easy, due to the massive capacity involved in the process of semantic similarity calculation. Many similarity calculation methods have been developed, although they are hardly united. This article contributes a low-cost similarity calculation method for ontology fusion, based on the inspiration of...

We attempt to improve users’ satisfaction with the effects of retrieval results and visual appearance by using users’ own information. Users’ feedback on digital platforms has been proven to be one type of user cognition. Through conducting a digital literature resource organization model based on user cognition, our proposal improves both the cont...

Question (1)
Question
We are working on a research that needs to classify all research papers into some classes. Currently we have not found any related work that implied/summarized how many or what are the different types of RESEARCH papers there are?
What would you think? Could you please enumerate some below? Many many thanks.
I.g. : Empirical study. review papers. But more details. Bc I assume there would be more classification on empirical study instead of just this as a whole.
