Where does data science research belong in the 21st century?

May 6, 2020 8:02:46 PM / posted in webinar, data science, industry research

The explosion of data unleashed by the internet has had a significant impact on research in the 21st century. An interdisciplinary field called data science has emerged over the past few decades, bringing together statistics, engineering, maths, and computer science. Universities have established a vast range of data science programmes and faculties, but a lot of innovation is happening in the private sector. The availability of high-quality research has expanded - it can be found in preprints, conference proceedings, and even Medium blog posts, in addition to traditional peer-reviewed journals.

Join a panel discussion with data scientists from leading academic institutions and private companies to learn more about the state of data science research in the 21st century.

Global Research on Researcher: Gaurav Singh, India

Mar 27, 2020 12:46:24 PM / posted in academic publishing, authors

As part of our Global Researchers series we’ve been in contact with Researcher users to learn more about their research, the challenges they face, and what benefits they’ve derived from Researcher. 

 

Speaking with researchers to understand the reasoning behind their research is instrumental for publishers. These small insights aid the publishers of the paper in understanding how they affect the day to day lives of researchers, their colleagues and their research.

Researcher’s Featured Authors: Academic Conferences with Rik Tykwinski

Mar 23, 2020 4:33:33 PM / posted in academic publishing, authors

Why do researchers do their research and how did they arrive at their academic niche? As part of our ‘Featured Authors’ series, we previously spoke with Alison Heard from the University of Calgary who discussed her paper as well as the challenges faced throughout the entire research, writing and publishing process. 

 

As a speaker at the University of Oxford’s Curo-Pi3 conference in 2018, we interviewed Professor Rik Tykwinski. He shared his insights into what young academics and PhDs should do when attending academic conferences, what academics get up to when they attend international conferences, and how simple curiosity can be the driving force behind academic research.

Why do researchers undertake research and how does Researcher impact this process? With the sheer volume of papers being published across a whole spectrum of subjects, it can be difficult to understand the motivations and behaviours of individual researchers. Yet learning how academics and researchers ‘do what they do’ and understanding how the embracing of new technologies is driving scientific innovation is important for the entire scientific publishing community.

Researcher’s Featured Authors: A Discussion On Sensorimotor Effects with Alison Heard

Mar 11, 2020 3:23:01 PM / posted in academic publishing, authors

Since Researcher launched in 2017, we have displayed millions of paper abstracts across multiple subjects and disciplines to over one million researchers and academics globally. We could analyse streams of data that pinpoint trends in academia and scientific publishing, but this fails, from an individualistic perspective, to uncover one of academia’s most important questions - ‘why?’. Why do researchers do their research and how did they arrive at their academic niche?
