How to best disseminate research with policy-makers and politicians?
Relevant answer
Answer
The failure of researchers to link evidence to policy and practice produces evidence that no one uses, impedes innovation, and leads to mediocre or even detrimental development policies. To help improve the definition, design, and implementation of policy research, researchers should adopt a strategic outcome-oriented approach.

I am interested in trans-Atlantic news dissemination in understanding how the revolutions of 1848-49 were diffused to the new world by newspapers and other information outlets.
Ultimately, I'm hoping to identify and read specific issues from European newspapers that would have arrived by boat in New York, Boston, Montreal. I want to know the dates stories were published (in EU) and what date those arrived in North America.

Answered By: Laurissa Gann
What is a Predatory Journal?
Predatory Journals take advantage of authors by asking them to publish for a fee without providing peer-review or editing services. Because predatory publishers do not follow the proper academic standards for publishing, they usually offer a quick turnaround on publishing a manuscript.  
In contrast, high quality academic journals take longer to publish articles because they go through a proper peer review and copy editing process. 
How are predatory journals different than Open Access journals?
Open Access journals may solicit authors to publish for a fee, but maintain high standards for peer review and editing. The goal of Open Access publishing is to disseminate research to a larger audience by removing paywalls. Open Access journals can have Impact Factors and can create a citation advantage for authors. 
Video: Open Access Explained!
How can you spot a predatory journal?
1. Do you or your colleagues know the journal? Do you recognize the editorial board?2. Can you easily contact the publisher?3. Is the journal clear about their peer review process?4. Is it clear what fees will be charged? If the answer is no for any of these questions, the journal is most likely questionable, if not predatory.  How do I check to see if my journal is reputable?
There isn't one fool proof way to determine if a journal is predatory. It requires a bit of detective work. Here are a few places you can search to determine the quality of an open access journal.
  • Is the journal open access? If so, it is listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals? 
    • Search the Directory of Open Access Journals. Be sure to limit your search to Journals only.  The DOAJ carefully vets open access journals for inclusion so if the journal is not listed in DOAJ, it means it may be questionable.
  • Is the journal indexed in Medline?
    • Search the NLM Catalog. If the record says "Not currently indexed for MEDLINE", it means that the journal may be questionable.  Just because a journal is not indexed in MEDLINE, does not mean the journal is automatically questionable. It could also mean that the journal is too new for MEDLINE or out of scope.
  • Has the journal been identified by others as predatory? Is it listed on the Cabell's Predatory Reports?
    • Google your journal title with the word predatory. You may be able to easily find news stories about the journal and it's predatory practices. You can also check Cabell's Predatory Reports to see if the journal is listed. 
  • Does the journal have an Impact Factor or do they list one on their website? Beware!
    • If a journal is claiming to have an Impact Factor, be sure to confirm this through the official Journal Citation Reports database. Only journals vetted through the JCR can officially state that they have an Impact Factor. Many predatory journals will make up an impact factor in an attempt to appear reputable.
  • Finally, ask a librarian!
    • Librarians are trained to spot predatory journals. Don't hesitate to ask for a second opinion. We can also help you to find a reputable journal in your subject area. 
How common are predatory journals?
As of 2015, there were an estimated 996 predatory publishers (including 447 publishers of standalone journals) that published over 11,800 journals. Of those, roughly 8,000 journal titles were active and published a total of approximately 420,000 articles. For comparison, this is roughly the same size, in both journal titles and articles published, as the legitimate open-access publishing industry. Not all of these predatory journals are in biomedicine fields, but biomedicine is a major area for predatory publishers, and the prevalence of predatory journals varies between specific fields. (Shen and Bjork)
Roughly 15% of articles published in predatory journals are from United States authors. However, this accounts for less than 1% of the United States' total research output. (Umlauf and Mochizuki)

I'm interested in repositories like zenodo, figshare, etc., where open-access papers (previously published) can be uploaded in order to improve the visibility of papers. Thanks a lot for your suggestions!
Relevant answer
Answer
Agreed with Dr. Wolfgang R. Dick Precisely, ResearchGate and Academia.edu are commercial sites, whereas most open access repositories are non-profits. These academic social networking sites have each raised large amounts of initial funding: $17.8 million for Academia.edu, and $35 million for ResearchGate.
Nevertheless, there are two main routes to open access are: Self-archiving / 'green' open access – the author, or a representative, archives (deposits) the published article or the final peer-reviewed manuscript in an online repository before, at the same time as, or after publication.

My apologies for cross-posting but this is an issue that is close to my heart. The University of Sheffield in their wisdom are proposing to close the Archaeology Department for the sole reason they are not making money!
The department has been a leading institute for prehistory research and has trained hundreds archaeologists in environmental archaeology and anthropology over the years. It is a vibrant community that has been reduced to 11 teaching staff but the University is run by accountants...
Please support our fellow archaeologists at Sheffield by signing this petition.
Also please disseminate this information through your networks. #SaveSheffieldArchaeology!
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi both,
I don't think the Department is not making money, not at all. In fact, as far as I know, the economic figures have not been disclosed by the university. I think the University Executive Board believes they could make more money investing in STEM departments as lecturers cost the same but these typically attract more students. There also a more systemic problem with the UK government reducing funds for arts and humanities departments. I wonder which model of education (and society) are they promoting. In any case, Archaeology at Sheffield is a very successful department and it is probably generating much more money than it requires.

In17th century Europe, long before the advent of academia whereby ideas are published in books and journals, ideas were disseminated by letter to already well known intellectuals. A.C. Grayling in The Age of Genius The Seventeenth Century and the Birth of the Modern Mind (2016). According to Grayling, with the emergence of private postal services letters were regularly sent over long distances. A web of correspondence was established between savants, whose correspondence established their fame and their ideas. Grayling notes that the fame of Hobbes, Descartes, and Pascal were created in this fashion largely through their correspondence with Mersenne in Paris. Erasmus in the 16th century is known to have used the same method of publication.

If anyone is interesting to share your experience with me on application of Public Private Partnership Extension approaches for technology dissemination, input supply change, information management, Agricultural development project. please response
Relevant answer
Answer
Since most public extension systems have suffered drastic budget cuts over the past decades (a tendency likely to continue), the principal advantages include a broader outreach and impact through third-party privately financed extension agents. However, in many cases, if not in most, the messages and recommendations delivered by privately funded extension agents or initiatives tend to be geared, or even dominated, by business interests of the involved companies. And, unfortunately, these interests are often not aligned with the needs of protecting human and environmental health, which should be universal common goods. For the effective long-term protection of the common goods, public funding will likely remain the principal pillar.

Governments and public health systems need accurate and agile information about the characteristics and behaviour of COVID-19 to respond to this ongoing public health emergency appropriately. Researchers, public health authorities, and the general public will benefit from reliable and expeditious data to evaluate the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on health care systems and to plan for an appropriate policy response at all levels of government.Currently, governments and policymakers throughout the world are being forced to make decisions and take actions based on alternative mathematical models developed for other diseases and/or the experience of other countries in which the outbreak has been detected early and developed. In this situation, high-quality institutional-based datasets are the prerequisite of necessary analysis for public health, which is inherently a data-intensive domain. Effective data quality assessment in the data collection process would guarantee the concordant outcomes from different studies worldwide.
There are several institutional-based repositories of public health data with the capability of electronic data collection and dissemination such as the datasets of public health information systems (PHIS), with various data quality assessment methods and standards. However, poor data quality or coding errors in PHIS is not a new issue and can lead to inaccurate inferences of health interventions. For COVID-19, multi-source datasets of the “World Health Organization (WHO)”, “European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control” and “Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Chinese CDC)” are reputable references for global BI dashboards and academic research, comprising measures of confirmed, deaths, severe, suspected and recovered cases. These resources are widely used to monitor trends in the virus outbreak and assess the risks of the pandemic in several countries and regions.
In the just published paper
Ashofteh, Afshin and Bravo, Jorge M. ‘A Study on the Quality of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Official Datasets’. 1 Jan. 2020 : 1 – 11. (available at https://content.iospress.com/articles/statistical-journal-of-the-iaos/sji200674 or https://doi.org/10.3233/SJI-200674)
we analysed and compared the quality of official datasets available for COVID-19. We used comparative statistical analysis to evaluate the accuracy of data collection by a national (Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and two international (World Health Organization; European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) organisations based on the value of systematic measurement errors. We combined excel files, text mining techniques and manual data entries to extract the COVID-19 data from official reports and to generate an accurate profile for comparisons. The findings show noticeable and increasing measurement errors in the three datasets as the pandemic outbreak expanded and more countries contributed data for the official repositories, raising data comparability concerns and pointing to the need for better coordination and harmonized statistical methods. The study offers a COVID-19 combined dataset and dashboard with minimum systematic measurement errors, and valuable insights into the potential problems in using databanks without carefully examining the metadata and additional documentation that describe the overall context of data.
The dataset and dashboard are available at:
Ashofteh, Afshin; Bravo, Jorge (2020), “COVID-19 data set resulted from a study on the quality of Novel Corona-virus official datasets”, Mendeley Data, v1 https://dx.doi.org/10.17632/nw5m4hs3jr.1 with reference to dashboard. doi: 10.17632/nw5m4hs3jr.2, available from: http://dx.doi.org/10.17632/nw5m4hs3jr.2
The description of the dataset comparisons provides valuable insights into the potential problems in using databanks that are the repository of information from many countries without carefully examining the metadata and additional documentation that describe the content and the overall context of data. Developing guidelines, standards, and ontologies for data documentation is crucial for researchers and policymakers in terms of understanding the context of data creation and collection. Moreover, the altering way in which confirmed cases and deaths have been classified in China points to similar problems which may arise in other countries which require a careful forensic analysis on a regular basis to understand how definitions are applied and to what extent data are comparable. There is a growing need for harmonization and standardization of the data gathering, reporting and data analysis processes.
Although this analysis is being conducted at a relatively early stage of the epidemics and, in the course of time, additional data sets have become available, the discussion on the identification of measurement errors remains timely, useful, and important.

Thank you very much for sharing your opinions
Relevant answer
Answer
A single author's paper, especially for graduate and postdoctoral students, may have a significant career value. It shows clearly that you are self-contained and not fully dependent on the elderly for ideas, guidance and techniques. You are therefore ready for a position at the faculty. Single author papers, except for review articles, may be hard for experimentation. It will be pretty easy for theories. Nevertheless, owing to the globalization of the planet, co-authorship and collaboration of multiple researchers worldwide is growing these days. Work in a community will yield better outcomes in terms of efficiency and science owing to amalgamation of multiple idea and concepts into single project.

It would be a terrible waste of resources for every professor, even every school, to try to develop a path forward in isolation. So what are some of the best ideas out there for distance learning with different laboratory classes? Are there resources readily available?

Does anyone have an idea of how to estimate sample size for dissemination study? Rogers talk about the critical mass and others state that critical mass is hard to estimate and often becomes apparent after the fact. But in dissemination and implementation study, how could you estimate the sample size if the total population you want to disseminate to is unknown?
Thanks!

Can you give more information? What is the study about and what are you trying to detemine? Generally speaking to calculate a sample size with good power values a pilot study is the best way to go forward from which you can get the mean and standar deviation.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Manoj,
I understand that for evaluation purposes the high impact journals are to be preferred as publication venues for your research especially if you think that it is high quality research that you are doing. However, in my opinion, there is also an ethical issue to be taken into account, because by aiming at the few top journals in our field we are contributing to an unequal scientific communication system in which very few actors exert an important power over the rest. Nowadays the virtues of a contribution can be assessed by different means and on an individual level, which means that articles can be judged on the basis of their own merits in terms of citations (in Web of Science and Scopus but also in Google Scholar), downloads from repositories, and of the debates they originate on social media. It is not only the journal impact factor that matters. So please, choose open access journals as well to publish, and demand a rigorous peer review anywhere you might submit your research.

The aim of the question is to collect broad reflections on the development of Design as a knowledge-creating discipline, especially on doctoral level research, and the internal or external factors that affect its impact.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr. Murillo,
You asked the question: …”what factors are making it difficult for academic research in Design to advance” ( in its dissemination or to assess its impact (or even to be produced!)?)” I think we must go back to the roots if we really want to find ‘the factors’.
Organized purposeful inquiries in design, including PhD studies and other types of project-based research, concurrently build the body of knowledge, establish the discipline/art of design and forward towards its science. The connection of science and design has been formulated two alternative ways. In one formulation it is “design science”, which strives after the systematic principles and processes of designing artifacts (Fuller, Simon, etc.). The other formulation is “science of design”, which involves rigorous investigations of and theorizing about the phenomenon of design (and many associated phenomena (involving products, knowledge, users, processes, enablers, stakeholders, business, technologies, and so forth) (Cross, Andreassen, etc.). By the way, according to me, ‘the knowledge of systematic designing’ and ‘the knowledge of study of designing’ are inseparable. I tried to show it in my paper in 2004. Unfortunately, we have no proper word or phrase for this compound. Having mentioned these, I wonder if these ontological issues are taken into consideration at devising Ph.D. level research programs at universities. (Probably, not everywhere.)
Another issue is that research in design (even a promotion research project) can be approached from multiple various philosophical stances (e.g. objectivist, empiricist, constructivist, instrumentalist, phenomenologist, pragmatist, modernist, anarchist, etc.). These perspectives influences not only the purpose, the specific objectives and hypothesis of research, but also the methodological conduct, the value criteria, the outcome, and the impact of the studies. More often than not, I come across with ‘designerly’ approaches of design knowledge exploration and synthesis.
Furthermore, design research is practically always, but variously, contextualized (i.e. done in various context). Four generic contexts of doing design research can be identified:
• understanding the phenomenon of design in the society (nature, knowledge, methods, values, norms)
• extending our knowledge on the principles of designing (laws, relationships, facts, theories, frameworks)
• supporting creative human activities and processes by proper design methods and tools (models, technologies, devices)
• enhancing problem solving intelligence and competences in specific practical cases (informing, modelling, organizing, validating, etc.). Obviously, a defendable decision should be made on these, since it is difficult to do research with all these four purposes or contexts in mind. The research schools may have priorities, as well as the Ph.D. researchers. Are these always in harmony?
A next issue is that the traditional (reductionist) approach of science making does not always apply to design research. Some of the phenomena studied by design research are holistic (a kind of multi-disciplinary), rather than reducible. If they are decomposed to sub-phenomena, their essence may be lost. Consequently, they need different (synthetic, rather than analytic) methods. However, these are scarce and underdeveloped. For instance, we do not know enough about data-driven design science.
The inquiry in ‘design’ (whatever it means) is not second to the inquiries in materials, planets, species, or particles, computers). But it is an issue that the ‘science of design’ cannot be supposed to be (and is actually not) fundamental (pure) science. At some places it is formulated explicitly, while it creative and heuristic nature of designing is safeguarded at other places. Many agrees that the ‘science of design’ should feature foundational (disciplinary) parts for building and empowering the discipline, as well as application-orientated (operative) parts. For this reason, at design-orientated faculties are put into a category (a box) different than natural sciences and the sciences of engineering (and evaluated according to different criteria). Typical are, for instance, architecture, industrial design engineering, and the like. It is always a question how a foundational part and the operative part can simultaneously be present in a Ph.D. study? There are no universal rules … One thing is important: a short knowledge transfer cycle is supposed to be between the foundational knowledge generation part and the practical knowledge generation/transforming part of design projects.
I think the availability and profile of design journals, the academic forums (conferences and workshops) are just technical issues, which can be managed by the comminity well. The general awareness of the above, and many more things, needs attention.
Kind regards,
I.H.

Traditional media in many countries is controlled by large media corporations and partly also by governments of individual countries.
In contrast, on the Internet, in addition to typical news portals, new media are developing, including social media portals and independent internet forums, where citizens unconnected with corporations and large media companies have the opportunity to publicly express themselves and make their views public.
In this way, the Internet enables the potential increase of the level of objectivity and independence of the media.
Thanks to this, the issue of information dissemination and exchange of views, debates with citizens can be of a more social, civic and objective nature.

Now Lavasa is in financial trouble because of bad environmental policies. Thus the initiative cannot be seen on public domain.

How important do you think scientific and technical translation(s) are?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Freek and Bruno,
This is a moot point. To find a cost-effective policy of scientific translation is in my opinion the crucial challenge of scientific communication today. It's not just a matter of accuracy, it's also an essential aspect of business. Overlooking this may mislead researchers and readers into thinking that a translated paper/work is necessarily a good one since people or institutions have paid for it.
I have translated a book at the request of a philosopher who happens to be also an artist. The work is an interesting attempt at decolonizing minds with regards to aesthetics. But the fact is that we now have to find a market, which means getting some funds since open access institutions cannot cover expensive communication.
Who gest one's works published? Who manages to get them translated? At what price? And for what public?
It all boils down to asking who needs the research in the first place.
Best,
Frederic

Relevant answer
Answer
The easiest way to know the copyright policy is to check with the journal/publisher. If the publication is Open Access, you can just point to the Journal/Article web location, but I'd guess this is not your case. If you try to upload a paper onto ResearchGate, you are reminded to check the sharing policy with the publisher. ResearchGate even provides a list of sharing policies applied by many individual publishers.
In general, you can expect a few simple rules to hold.
- The final version of an article (i.e. peer reviewed, typeset, and proof-read by the journal) is covered by the journal copyright, thus you are not allowed to upload it to any publicly accessible site unless you obtain a license from the copyright holder (usually for a hefty fee).
- An Abstract and bibliographic data are free to share.
- The author manuscript is usually yours to share as you wish.
- You may freely share an article IN PRIVATE with your colleagues. However, some publishers object even private sharing of final versions (though they do not actively prosecute it most of the time), so sharing an author manuscript is safer. ResearchGate has a "Request full text" tool to facilitate this type of sharing.
