Sometimes all of scientific articles are not available in google search even in another search engine. But when I intended to do a new work, so how can I know that this is first time. Even though, it may be that the work has been done before but it did not appear in my search engine. So, what could basis that we can say this is first time work or research.

Answer
Prof. Mirza Mienur Meher: In my opinion, most of the free-software-checkers for plagiarism don't work effectively. Since there is no guarantee that the original content of your manuscript might not be copied and sold to others before it is published by you, I discourage using any free-software-checkers for plagiarism; some of them are betrayers.
  • WARNING 1: There are a massive number of betrayers!
  • WARNING 2: Plagiarism is a sin! If it is, severe action may be taken and/or legal notice may be given.
Unfortunately, you have to pay for the sake of getting good results. In any way, it is not well for your reputation if there were accusations of plagiarism.
In my personal opinion, free anti-plagiarism software is not safe.
On the other side, my university, WISE, uses the TURNITIN plagiarism checker. The maximum allowed percentage of plagiarism should be commonly less than 20%. However, from the same reference, it should not exceed 5%.
We must completely understand that the plagiarism is never allowed and it is almost impossible to have 0% similarity.

We've all been in circumstances when we couldn't find the literature we were looking for. Other times, we found exactly what we wanted, but very late. Thus, beginners in research are pushed to formulate a clear and innovative title. Keywords rescue us, but, is it enough?
In these days of data mining, what tools can we utilize to structure our research paper titles such that they are search engine optimized (SEO)? How can we write technical titles that are both engaging and readable?
1. Google Trends
Track changes in word usage over time, within a region, etc.
2. Web-of-Science
Regular keyword literature search, to find jargon usage.
3. Semrush
Helps with Keyword Research, Competitive Research, PR, etc. It is a marketing tool, perhaps used by industrial researchers and product developers?
4. What am I missing? What are your tricks and tips?

I'm looking for a way to download all the results of a Google Scholar search together; Not one by one, nor by entering it in the library and then downloading it in twenty pieces!
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi guys
I have seen many researchers read this question and its answers since I asked it. Now I want to share my other experience here (two ways to use google scholar and download citations as collections). In some articles, I saw that authors explain that they have investigated only the first ten or twenty pages in google scholar. Therefore notice that google scholar reduces the reproducibility of your systematic search but can use as a supplementary source.
Also, by saving articles in your library in google scholar, you can download citations as a collection.
Remember that showing only the first 1000 results and displaying different results for the same search at different times are the biggest problem for using google scholar in systematic searches and reviews.

All of us, scientists, engineers, researchers, and managers, use search engines extensively to find documents that should contain the information that matters to us.
It can be either Google Scholar™, Clarivate™, PubMed™, ScienceDirect™ or others. We may have an exhaustive use of them.
As a researcher myself, I have felt more and more frustrated with the only alternative of finding thousands of references at once, or not one.
Am I just a "minority report"?
Or do you also feel the same frustration of missing the right tool to explore the mountain of new documents, publications and reports being published online every day?
I'd like to know how satisfied you are with the document search engine you use currently.
Could you tell me how happy (or not) you are with it?
If you feel it is accurate, do you alternate between finding thousands or no references, depending on your query criteria?
What do you like or dislike with the current document search engine you use?
Thanks in advance for helping me to find if I'm a lonely, dissatisfied user or a member of a larger group.

Answer
Shah Khalid . Thanks. I'm in the same state of mind. For me, all search engines have been developed before the actual explosion in publishing, and their searching criteria (keywords, boolean logic) don't seem adapted to our current scientific world. As a result, we select the papers we aim to read mostly through parameters independent of the actual content: citation number, JIf, and the author's fame (s). And we feel lucky when a paper actually contains what it claimed in its title.

Hey! I'm interested in some fundumental studies about news on search engine results page (some more particular topics: how people pervceive it, if there is a difference in perseption depending on the type of news or the country).
I am new to this field, and I'd be glad to read any decent article that contains words 'news' and 'serp'. Some cross-country comparison would also be cool.
So, could you please recommend me something?
Relevant answer
Answer
Using good keywords for your search gives you better results. Be as specific as you can. You do not need to include "and" between terms, but the order in which you type your keywords will affect the search results. You can also search for a specific phrase by including words in quotation marks. Searches are not case-sensitive.
Every time you search, there are thousands, sometimes millions, of web pages or other content that might be a match. The search engine uses its robust systems to present the most helpful information in response to your query. The Search index is like a library, except it contains more information than all the world's libraries put together. They are constantly adding to it and updating it with data about web pages, images, books, videos, facts, and much more. In a fraction of a second, The search engine’s Search automated systems sort through hundreds of billions of web pages and other information in their Search index to find the most relevant, useful results for what you’re looking for. To give you the most useful information, Search algorithms look at many factors and signals, including the words of your query, relevance, and usability of pages, the expertise of sources, and your location and settings. The weight applied to each factor varies depending on the nature of your query.

I need to evaluate a pure content-based recommender system for documents extraction (It may also be seen as a search engine) that gets top N results based on a similarity score. I know there are some metrics like HR@k, accuracy@k, NDCG@k, CTR, etc. However, if I understand right, all those metrics require a pre-evaluation from expert coders, rating score for documents (e.g., scale from 1 to 5) or click pattern from users.

Question

Whenever we start a new research we need first to do literature review in order to both get acquainted with the context and the concepts related to our research and also to situate our research within the existing knowledge.
  • The problem is that in order to find relevant literature you need to express what you are looking for into meaningful search terms and the more efficient and robust you make your "search string" (aka the keywords you use) the better you will express your information need and find relevant reference. E.g. If someone is looking for "text classification for categorising books" is better to word it as "book genre identification".
Do you got any techniques that you developed through the years on how do find the perfect wording for your initial literature search? Myself, for example, I try to find first an initial paper that is relevant and the browse through its cited papers to see if there is any paper that describes in their title in a better way what I am looking for.

I have data from LC/MS-MS, that gave 55 results, including some contaminations. The main objetive is to try to identify proteins with 56-60 kDa. What are the coverage, #peptides, # PSMs, # Unique Peptides, Score Sequest HT: Sequest HT, # Peptides (by Search Engine): Sequest HT, etc, numbers or scores that I should have for criteria?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Ana
When analysing LC-MS data, the most important thing to keep in mind is your underlying research question. MS/MS data will give a lot of unnecessary information which could be quite intimidating if you keep focussing on those.
Firstly, you need to make sure that the database that you are querying for peptide assignment is properly annotated. The values associated with all the parameters that you mentioned rely on the resolution and peptide detection ability of the Mass spectrometry machine. I am guessing you might have run standards on the machine before analysing your samples. You can take those as reference for your study.
If you have a proper annotated database, you can keep the coverage around 50-70%, unique peptides 3-5 and SEQUEST HT score greater than 100 as a filter. To increase the confidence of the detection, you can manually check the peptides that were matched to your protein to have appropriate coverage of b- and y- ions.
Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion and there is no universal threshold that is set for these parameters. It changes with the factors that I discussed.

Searching for information on the Internet was and is one of the most important internet services.
The techniques and functions of search engines since the 1990s have constantly changed in the process of their improvement.
Currently, information search functions on the Internet already contain not only specialized search engines but also portals specialized in given issues of websites and, for example, social media portals. On the other hand, internet search engines constantly improve their functions of advanced searches.
Currently, leading internet technology companies offering specific information services, including information retrieval, are working on the implementation of a specific artificial intelligence technology to information processing techniques in which they offer certain information services on the Internet. In recent years, advanced information processing technologies in the cloud and in Big Data database systems have been intensively developed, in which large sets of data collected from specific websites are collected.
In view of the above, the current question is: Improving search techniques and data processing on the Internet?

An interesting thing is the algorithm according to which specific search results appear in a Google search engine based on a given password.
Formulas of this type of algorithms can be variously constructed so that different search results can be obtained according to the same password.
Added to this is the issue of promoting search results for companies that have made certain fees for a high level of positioning in search results. Unfortunately, this is not an objective process of finding information available on the Internet but a formula based on commercial marketing. In this situation, there is a question about competitiveness, which is limited in this way.
In view of the above, I am asking you: Does Google's search engine algorithm restrict competition in the availability of information on the Internet?

Hi Everyone,
I have a documents search engine, and the users have ability to Rate the search result for any query they make. For the first versions of Search engine, I am using Universal Sentence Encoder to generate document embeddings, and at the time of search User search queries are also embedded and the documents with most closest embeddings are presented in search result.
User can rate a documents from the search result, on some scale, say 0 to 5 (0 being Not Relevant and 5 is Very relevant)
Using this kind of feedback is there a way we can fine tune the search results?
One idea is using BERT with triplet loss, where we can use:

Another option is to use a multiple phase hashing. In a first step you go through all 50 million documents but use a cheap hash function. For example, consider only the first fifty words of a document. Count the collisions. If a document has no collision, it is a loner, you can exclude it from further doublette finding.
Only the remaining documents must be checked with a more expensive hash method.

Hi there,
Is there a way/tool/ search engine that would allow me to search for multiple variations of the same phrase at the same time?
For example, I want to search for "revealing his true belief". But I also want to search for all the phrases that have the same or similar meaning like"betraying their real opinion".
The total number of words here is 8 but there are many different ways to combine the words so there are many different potential alternative phrases: "revealing his true opinion" "revealing his real opinion" "betraying our real opinion" etc….
Is there a way to accomplish this in two conditions?
1- I determine the alternatives. So I specify that for "word 1 word 2 word 3 word4", the alternatives for word 1 are: Only revealing or showing.
2- Use all the possible synonyms or even antonyms for "revealing" in word 1.
A very useful tip I got is the use of asterisk so "revealing * true opinion" would yield "revealing your true opinion" and "revealing their true opinion".
But for some reason when I combine two quotations with each other with OR, some results are omitted. For example, "revealing * true opinion" OR "betraying * * real" yields results for the latter quotation but not the former even though the former would generate results if it's on its own.

I want to do a dissertation for my MSc on how schema mark up affects the web rankings of a website.
How much of a "boost" in web rankings can a website expect after using schema mark up?
>Does a firm in a competitive industry such as online gambling receive this boost?
>Is there a mathematic way to understand what factors contribute to a website's web ranking?
For example : Wr=f(mt x md x bl x sc x kd)
where Web ranking is a function of
Mt=meta titles
Md=meta description
Bl= relevant backlinks
sc= schema mark up
kd= keyword difficulty
Relevant answer
Answer
Actually, your fundamental premise is incorrect. I am simply trying to help.
Schema content is most certainly used for ranking purposes. Breadcrumb links are an example.
The HTML title-tag content is a ranking factor. However, if Google determines a better title, it will modify it in search listings. The meta-tag title & the title attribute are not ranking factors.
Meta-tag content is NOT a ranking factor for text-based documents. It is a ranking factor for videos, however.
I do not know if you mean header or heading. Do you mean the content between the <head> and </head> tags or a heading, such as an H1, the content between a <h1> and </h1 tags?
If the former, then there are many items that could & could not be ranking factors. Style sheets & JavaScript formatting can limit &/or prevent access to content, for example.
If you mean the latter (headings & subheadings), they ARE ranking factors...but it depends on how they are formatted.
Also, a patent does not necessarily mean that the math is implemented as a ranking factor. My colleagues (who work at major search engines) have told me this personally. They have also presented this information at search conferences.
Therefore, if you choose to write about this topic, I suggest that you put in the "Discussion" area that patent information does not necessarily mean that the information is implemented in search results. Here are some quotes from my colleague:
  • "Search Engines know that their patents will be read by competitors and SEOs….and they author them accordingly."
  • "You don't actually have to use the features in the patent to be granted the patent."
  • " A site doesn’t have to disclose all of its features in a patent application."
Hope this helps.

I am trying to build a house price recommender system that will work as a search engine in a real estate property website. Any suggestions on how to achieve that using ML algorithms? I have planning to use the Hybrid method stacking classification models.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello,
From what I think would be most suitable in this case if you try using stacked LSTM networks.
Rationale: LSTMs are very powerful for time series analysis. So far house prices goes, I guess you would be attempting to predict house prices by training your model on past house prices data over time. For example, you want to say predict house prices of a neighborhood X for year 2020 and you have data of say from 2016 on wards. LSTM has a huge potential in this case (theoretically) as it can learn how certain factors (features in this case like neighborhood school facilities, hospital facilities, crime rate etc.) has influenced the price of houses in neighborhood X over time. Most certainly LSTM based classification model should be performing better than traditional ML algorithms.
All the best.

I am working on wheat annotations when I blast my sequences in Ensembleplants search engine it gives me gene I'ds but when I search these IDs or significant markers into IWGSC +POPSEQ I could not find any gene. In short I want to convert for example TRAES3BF175400030 to Traes_3B_49BF78501.
I wonder if anyone has such experience.
Help would be appreciated

I'm striving to find the database that contains and able to search and surf the largest number possible of journal papers and other whatever scholar information sources
For instance
Web of Science and ..............
And if you see that there is difference between search engine and database please suggest both
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
Google Scholar (GS) could be the database with the largest coverage from variety of subject domains with free of access. However, I noticed that most literature criticized GS because of the following reasons: no one knows how and from where GS collects data (i.e. unknown sources), duplicate citation counts, limited search strategies, and indexation of non-scholarly content. One can notice that there are a lot of comparisons among GS, Web of Science (WoS), and Scopus.
Comparisons between WoS and Scopus reveal that Scopus covers more titles than WoS. However, the coverage in terms of time, WoS is ahead of Scopus since it was started several years before starting Scopus. As I remember, the records included in Scopus is limited to the year 1995. Studies also revealed that WoS is somewhat biased towards North American publications, while Scopus is not so. In case of searching, both these databases/services include approximately similar capabilities, but at times certain capabilities exceed the capabilities of the other. This is common for both databases.
The reason for different publication counts observed from GS and Scopus for the same search could be the duplicate records/citations included in GS.

I'm always using keywords such as manual, procedure ...... but none of them is bringing out the results I want
I'm not sure if its a keywords problem or google is banning such information
For instance its so easy to find manuals for instruments but not the experiments done in scholar papers with the specific masses and volumes
Some papers have attached extra details about the experiment the majority don't and its always ambiguous to find technical procedures

For instance, if a user type in "movie about dog waiting a long time for his owners to come back", the result should return "Hachiko" , "Eight below", "Lassie" etc. However, it would have been better if we can use data mining method to actually search it based on the plot of the movie not keywords. ​What is the best solution for this work?

I was trying to download TRMM rainfall data from earthdata search engine. There it is provided in .nc4 file format. But, as I need to download a large number of files, I tried batch downloading and while doing so the file format is automatically converted into .man file format (I don't know if I did anything wrong though!). I came to learn that .man format is basically a text file format usable for Unix/Linux OS. Now, I don't have any OS except windows 10. As it is a text file I tried various types of conversion to raster formats, but it was not successful in any step. Is there any way, that I can apply for these conversion. Conversion to any of the .tif, .img, .hdf, .nc4 types would be useful.

Hi,
you could use Google Scholar and filter the results to keep only results written in French. You can do that either in the user interface or by typing your keywords and then setting the "lr" and "hl" parameters in the URL to "lr=lang_fr" and "hl=fr".

Hello!
Many authors of books on design and algorithms (Weapons of Math Destruction, The Filter Bubble, etc) have claimed that in order to serve the human mind better, algorithms might need to work more irrational.
My name is Michael and I'm an Interaction Designer from Switzerland. I am currently working on my Bachelors Thesis, which deals with Serendipity and Algorithms. How can algorithms work less rational, and help us to come across more serendipitous encounters!
I was wondering wether any of you are familiar with some sort of an irrational algorithm. Does this exist? Let me know if you know something in this field, or what you think about it, anything helps!
Thank you
Michael
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Mi Sc ,
Simply put, serendipity is when the connection between things, leads to something positive.. So if serendipity is simply a series of positive connections that can be engineered, then serendipity can be calculated. In fact, I would go as far as saying that serendipity is an algorithm.

Hi everyone,

Request: It would be helpful for me to add to this collection. Please suggest in the comments section any other resources I could add.
********
Types of demonstrations
I'm looking for resources (videos, pictures, games, activities, articles etc..) that would explain or illustrate a concept in an engaging and/or simple way especially to a lay audience. It could be a straightforward explanation like this A video explaining the concept "Co-relation does not equal causation"
where the original intent of the video is to explain this concept. Or ,You can be creative; this illustration does not need to be originally made to explain this concept. The analogy can be made independently of the original intention of the resource. For example, if the concept is flexibility in your career, I can find a video of a person demonstrating physical flexibility even though the original intent of the video is not about career flexibility.
Please put your suggestion in the comments section below.

There used to be a great utility called X1 that let me search for words within all my saved pdfs, but it's not supported anymore...
I'm looking for suggestions for a program that will index all the words in my saved pdfs, so that as I type in a string of search terms (e.g. Smith Jones kinase protease solar system) all of the papers that contain those words will be displayed in a list and - this is the key part - those words will be highlighted in a view of the pdfs that appears next to the list. It was tremendously handy to scroll through that list and see the relevant page of the pdfs; made finding a figure or a certain paragraph easy!
What I'm not looking for is a keyword search or something that indexes titles and abstracts (like Papers) or a citation manager (like EndNote). Mendeley generates some kinds of list, but I've tested it and it misses a lot of papers that contain my search terms so I know it isn't indexing the full text. I think what I want is properly called a desktop search utility, but so far none of the ones I've checked out show the view of the pdf.

I am writing a literature review and will use only peer reviewed articles. However, I am having a doubt, should I use Google Scholar, since no reviews published in the past 5 years (to my knowledge) used it. They focused on Web of Science and Scopus. Is there a lower chance to get published paper if use Google Scholar?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think that Richard James Hewitt is completely right in pointing out the variability of results of Google Scholar, though I would not look at this necessarily as a disadvantage. While Boolean searches produce consistent results (for reproducibility), they depend on proper keyword selection. These keywords may or may not bring forward the "required" references. The average user is not accustomed to think of keyword search as searching through an ontology, where you can start narrow and generalize or start with a generic term and progressively narrow the term. This requires experience and knowledge of how to progressively infer how the database extraction algorithm is doing its work .
This is where an engine using TF-IDF with different metrics can help by bringing other types of results.

Scopus allows downloading bibliometrics data in *.ris format for further analysis.However, I have noticed that for the documents (publications) which have no citations, the respective field (TC is not included). Non-inclusion of TC field results in "No field" situation when I use this *.ris file in Bibexcel.
The tool treats the entry against publications having zero citations( and hence no TC field) as "No field" and gives error in further processing, hence exiting the tool.
One way is to open *.doc file that bibexcel creates from *.ris file in MS Word and manually add TC-0 at the right place, where required. This may be feasible but not for document having 4489 pages.
Anyone who could guide me to deal with this situation? One can recommend another tool for example.

Thank you Esteftah Elkomy for your reply.
Though the issue I faced was different but still appreciate the efforts you have put in responding to my query. The issue was not of a missing citation but of the missing TC field that scopus doesn't add to a file.

The application has public access (searches), student access (searches and storage of search-projects) and academic (creation of signatures in the database).
Does anyone have any ideas about improving on this?

Concern about data mining and the uses to which the mined data are put suggest that privacy is not just a matter of personal sensitivities. It may, at least partially, be a social duty if it can be achieved efficiently. Duck Duck Go seems to promote itself as reducing the personal contribution/exposure involved in data mining. https://duckduckgo.com/about

Answer
As with any technology it offers Pros and Cons. The added information harvested by search engines do better the search experience by relevance feedback on the engine. The experience with it depends on the values that a particular person has on privacy and how much the difference is perceived by the user.
I do value my privacy which is why for some queries I use it as well as other technologies, but when I do think there is no privacy concerns I use other more intrusive technologies.

The system gather the community feedback, analysed them and recommend shops for users.I have to develop an algorithm to search best shops and it should give results according to the analysed feedback.So please can anyone guide me where to start developing the searching algorithm?
Relevant answer
Answer
In a first step, collect tuples from community feedback. Such a tuple might consist of
  • User U
  • Company C
  • Product-or-Service P
  • Satisfaction S
In order to harvest such information, give your users a web form. Or do a sentiment analysis. Build an appropriate data structure from these tuples. In the simplest case a list. You will need an outlier detection and a
user ranking based on history to identify bots, trolls, contenders, and liars.
In a second step, develop the search engine. Compared to the sentiment detection, this is rather an easy task.

adding to the previous answers, DBpedia is a knowledge base (KB) which can be used for various applications such as structured question answering.

DBpedia can be queried using a variety of databases (know as triple stores or quad stores) by graph query language SPARQL via their endpoints (i.e. sparql endpoint -- such as http://dbpedia.org/sparql/ ).
