Names - Science topic
Personal names, given or surname, as cultural characteristics, as ethnological or religious patterns, as indications of the geographic distribution of families and inbreeding, etc. Analysis of isonymy, the quality of having the same or similar names, is useful in the study of population genetics. NAMES is used also for the history of names or name changes of corporate bodies, such as medical societies, universities, hospitals, government agencies, etc.

I aligned my influenza virus sequence using NCBI BLAST. Some segments belong to H9 strains, while others are more similar to H5 and H7. Indeed, the results indicate similarity of PB1, for example, with certain H9, H5, and H7 sequences. How can I ensure that the names of the sub-genotypes available in NCBI have been submitted correctly?

These are colonies that I isolated from a product. I have found difficulties in identifying the name of the microorganism by observing its morphology. Could someone tell me what microorganism it is by examining the macroscopic morphology?
previous works are genuine works. But published in predatory journals(few are naming them as predatory).What to do. In the same journal I can publish again. But what is the use??
I am working on the biography of Maria Salomea Skłodowska (Marie Curie). I am confused about her Bachelor/Master degrees. Many authors mentioned that she obtained Master Degree on Physics (1893) and on Mathematics (?) or Chemistry (1894) from Sorbonne (Paris) but I am not getting any information about her Bachelor Degree. She completed education in a gymnasium (school level) in Warsaw. But could not study in Warsaw University because during that time woman was not allowed to study there.
The question is: whether without Bachelor Degree was she able to study Master or not? In this connection it would be nice if anybody can help me to give me the following information:
Names of the Degrees (Bachelor/Master/Doctoral Levels) with Years & Institutions — Marie Curie obtained from Warsaw and Paris (School/College/University).
Hello, I would like to script the creation and assignment of a reference point to a geometry set in abaqus. In the .jnl file the code is:
#* TypeError: referencePoints; found None, expecting tuple
I would like to automate this process so I wrote a . py script with the following:
myRP= mdb.models[name].parts['PART-1'].ReferencePoint(point=(150.0, 10.0, 0.0))
r = mdb.models[name].parts['PART-1'].referencePoints
myRP_Position = r.findAt((150.0, 10.0, 0.0),)
Why does my code not assign the created reference point to the set? I end up having to do it manually and it is a bit annoying.
I recently noticed that one of my co-author's name has been replaced by another (Lucie Desmet by Louis Desmet) on several papers available in my publication list. Is anyone aware of other similar cases and know how to get this fixed ?

Regarding the G20 summit, state-issued invitations sent to world leaders using the word “Bharat” have ignited rumours that the government might plan to phase out the English name India. In 1947, when British rule was finally overthrown, India ostensibly had three coexisting names, each with its own history, connotation and legitimacy.
There was India, a name thought to have its origins in Sanskrit, referring to the Indus River that runs through the north of the country.
There was Hindustan, the name used by the Persians, the Greeks, Delhi sultans and the Mughals for hundreds of years to refer to a large stretch of the north and centre of the subcontinent.
Finally there was Bharat, a name that is traced back to an ancient Sanskrit text, the Rig Veda – written around 1500BC – which mentions the Bharata clan as one of the principal tribes occupying an area now known as north India. It is also the name of a legendary king that appears in the Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata, who Hindus claim was the father of the Indian race.(https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/sep/07/india-or-bharat-g20-invitations-throw-up-question-dating-back-centuries)
India, Hindustan or Bharat? What are your thoughts?
It is all in the question.
Thanks in advance.
My research thesis submitted but I have experimental data so I want to publish that data before viva examination.
Please suggest me any reputed journal and fast response journal name also free publication.
when describing and naming a new species, many authors make a mistake, they postulate a malformed suffix.
E.g., the species Pseudempleurosoma guanabarense Carvalho & Luque, 2012 was originally named Pseudempleurosoma guanabarensis in its species description.
But because of the latin or greek grammar, the "-sis" is not correctly fitting to "-soma". Therefore, the scientific community declared the originally chosen name a malformed suffix, says the name is unaccepted, and changed the species name to the grammatically correct "-se" (without a publication by the way).
So the question is: When describing and naming a new species, what are the correct grammatical rules for either latin or greek names? Probably it is just the declination? But how can I know if a genus name is either a, o, u or another declination type? Are common rules applicable? Do I need a latin and a greek dictionary to check the declination and the sex/gender masculinum, femininum, neutrum?
I used to learn latin in school, however, it's still difficult for me.
Thank you, Yours,
2. If we are simply typing the genus of any scientific name (like Rhizoctonia) then it should be in italics or not?
Please answer these. Thank You.
I've registered on ResearchGate today but I can't upload my articles because they are linked to another account with the same name: Giulia Errico, Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland, but this account is not mine. I live in Rome not in Zurich. How is it possible that my works are linked to another account? I also put my ORCID, so how can I collegate ORCID with ResarchGate?

Good day all, i encountered a strange problem with gromacs when restarting my simulation. i ran a 100ns simulation and then created a new tpr file named newproduction.tpr to extend my simulation using convert-tpr. since i initially did not want to append i used the command gmx_mpi mdrun -deffnm newproduction -cpi state.cpt -noappend to create a new xtc, log, trr, edr, and cpt files but when i want to append to my new xtc files i get an input/output error. the problem is that gromacs is recognizing my log file as newproduction.part0008.part008.log but in my directory the name is newproduction.part0008.log i don't understand why gromacs is recognizing my new xtc files but not my log file
Scientific results, at least those generated by individuals holding positions at universities or at publicly financed research institutes, should be openly accessible to all people worldwide.
In order to be able to access a publication, often a fee will be charged by the publisher. For open access publication the authors have to pay quite a lot of money, and many researchers are simply not able to achieve this. Certainly the main community of researchers is not at all happy with this situation.
During the last decades, publishing -- fortunately ! -- changed from costly print versions to much cheaper electronic versions. Meanwhile it is quite easy to set up an electronic journal and ... to make money with such a business ! Not rarely a publisher tends to not taking peer review seriously, since rejecting a submission means less income. Quite a number of journals and publishers have meanwhile even been classified as "predatory" and an author should better check carefully, to which journal she/he should submit her/his work.
Let me briefly report a case, in which I have been -- and I am still -- involved. The original publisher of the Journal of Generalized Lie Theory and Applications (GLTA) was Astralgo Science in Estonia. In those days I was asked to join the Editorial Board. Later this journal moved to Ashdin Publishing, then OMICS and finally Hilaris, alleged "predatory" publishers according to quite a number of sources in the internet. Apart from a strange description under "About the Journal", on the GLTA website
"Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process)
Authors who are willing to publish their articles under this mode can make a pre-payment of $99 towards express peer-review and editorial decision. First editorial decision in 3 days and final decision with review comments in 5 days from the date of submission."
It should be obvious to any serious scientist, that this is not compatible with any reasonable peer review process. I asked the publisher to remove my name from the Editorial Board and at least one of the Editors-in-chief followed me. No response at all and no action. Lately GLTA even published total nonsense articles under the name of respectable scientists who had nothing to do with it !
Long ago I had rejected several submissions to GLTA that landed on my desk. But since many years I have not received anything anymore from the editorial office. The editors-in-chief should know, which of the published papers actually went through a peer review process.
Authors in general have to transfer copyright to the publisher and lose their own right in this way.
Why we should not pay publication fees and also not fees for open access publishing
As the above example in my opinion clearly shows, this could drive the publisher to decrease the level of scientific quality.
It is also not understandable that an author has to pay for keeping the right to her/his own work.
What shall we do ?
A major revolution in scientific publishing has been the creation of the arXiv by Paul Ginsparg in 1991. Of course, we also have to thank Donald Knuth for his ingenious TeX and Leslie Lamport for the somewhat more user-friendly LaTeX.
We should only take submission to a journal into consideration, if the publisher allows us to store a corresponding preprint version in the arXiv. There are even journals (like Communications in Mathematical Physics) which require that authors send their work to the arXiv prior to submission.
Posting in the arXiv also allows other scientists to send private comments to the authors, which offers a chance to improve their work. I'm typically waiting at least a month from arXiving a paper to submission to a journal.
Some authors send their work from one publisher to the next until it gets published somewhere, without prior posting in the arXiv. This occupies editors and referees and should not be considered a decent scientific behavior in my opinion. Isn't it a bit sneaky ?
The availability of a preprint version (which can even be updated) in the arXiv makes payment for open access publishing redundant, in my opinion.
How to maintain scientific quality ?
Sure, the arXiv is a great thing, but we do need services to maintain and increase scientific quality.
There are "overlay journals" like SIGMA, strongly connected with the arXiv. Perhaps this is a substantial part of the future of publishing.
In my opinion, a good quality of scientific publishing can in fact only be achieved via a good editorial board, which has full rights to decide about publication or rejection. There are certainly also questions concerning the way of constituting an editorial board, election of members, choice and quality of referees, etc. But this is a more restricted problem.
If we are asked to join the editorial board of some journal, we should think twice and check the journal carefully. If it makes a good impression, this does not mean that this will be so forever. In particular not if there is a publishing business behind it.
But the publishers need financial support to maintain servers, infrastructure, editorial services
First, we should not forget that also the arXiv needs funding ! It seems that the system works well presently, but perhaps the scientific community should support it even more.
In my opinion, scientific publishing, as a business and at least in the realm of journals, has no future. More public funding will be necessary to establish and maintain an independent academic publishing structure.
Clearly a lot has already been written about scientific publishing and the problems connected with it. I did not read it all, sorry ! But I do hope that I did not miss some of the most important aspects.
Take care !

Does any one know any idea?
when we run our file with fchk additional keyword we get file with test.fchk name, how can we change test name?
in the 1940s, Max Delbruck and Salvador Luria worked with some phages that they called alpha, delta, and gamma. Then they decided to change the names to 'T' with a number that is still in use. Is there a table that converts the old Greek names to the current T version?
I am working on the image of some critical curves under complex-valued harmonic polynomials. The following picture was produced and I couldn't give the well known name for this in Mathematics. Can I get any suggestion on this please?
I want to use AMBER to run a simulation of a membrane protein, small molecule and POPC bilayer membrane complex system, and the complex parameter files .inpcrd and .prmtop have been generated by tleap.
But I do not know how to optimize and balance the system. I searched some posts on the Internet and summed up the following optimization and balancing steps:
(1) Energy minimization of water and ions;
(2) Energy minimization of protein, small molecule and POPC;
(3) Heating system to 310K;
(4) Balancing water and ions using NVT ensemble;
(5) Balancing POPC using NPT ensemble;
(6) Balance protein and small molecule using NPT ensemble;
(7) Conventional molecular dynamics simulation under the NPT ensemble.
Whether this optimization and balancing process suitable for membrane protein, small molecules and POPC system? If not, which step needs to be improved?
In addition, if a residue of small molecule in .prmtop file is named SW2, how can I use the 'restraintmask' instruction in the .in file to restrict the small molecule?
I have often wondered why agronomists, soil scientists and others who work on soil do not often mention the name of the soil they worked on in their publications, and wrote the following letter:
I would like to sincerely thank Editors of Geoderma for writing this editorial:
The Rac proteins are a subfamily of the Rho GTPases. The Rho GTPases are a subfamily of the Ras GTPases. Does the name Rac bear any significance regarding the protein's identity, discovery, or function? Is it an acronym? Was there any rhyme or reason for naming this subfamily Rac?
I successfully published an article through the ResearchGate platform this past august 2023, then updated it in September, I didn't change the title, name or anything but the publication date was automatically changed by ResearchGate. Then, when I check if the name and correspondent link were still correctly showed by google results it appeared a 404 error page from ResearchGate instead, so I don't know how can I re-link the updated article to google results. Thanks in advance.
I sent a manuscript to a Journal for publishing. The journal requested me to nominate three potential reviewers. who can help with this issue? they requested the First name, last name, email, and reason for selecting this reviewer.
