In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

    By the way, @Hermine, here you have a saying from today's session on Skype (It didn't help much as a clue): Bella gerant alii, tu felix Austria nube.

    We are on the graph, but science in Poland isn't on a high level anyway. :( You can read about our universities' misery almost every day.

    What did they all write, I wonder?

    Jump in @april, the water is warm enough to swim. :-bd


    I am sure you will like this paper

    Neurology, Poetry and the First World War of 1914–1918

    A good question, @april. Nowadays, parametrization reigns, which is ridiculous. It should matter what it is all about. =))

    Here there are scientists of older generation, who have mainly published in French, e.g. Juliusz Domański (avec Pierre Hadot). Now English dominates as a criterion in ranking lists. I find it somewhat unfair.
    All in all parametrization is necessary as is English. There is no escape. But it is not a god, in particular in humanities.

    That's what I understood.
    I totally agree with you.
    Some papers are really ridiculous because they just have to write something.
    I'm sure it's not the case with your papers @Science. :)

    You don't have to read everything you found, just read high impact journals in you area of interest.

    Here you can classify them.

    That's true, @science24 but in humanities an impact factor as a criterion doesn't work that well. That said I prefer publications in English in internationally acknowledged journals. This is a way to avoid friendly reviews within a narrow circle of specialists.

    "The world of journal ranking, impact factor and citation metrics is not well-developed in arts and humanities disciplines. This is mainly due to differing trends and practices in research and scholarly communication in the humanities compared with other subject areas (such as the much greater importance of monographs, for example).

    The European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) is an attempt to produce a database of significant journals in the humanities. However, ERIH has proved controversial '

    @Lynne‌, That's why I have the same answer for your last question in TGIF

    thank's for this video it'll help me a lot for my next article. However I have to see (and listen) it twice or three times to understand everything.
  • science24science24 Posts: 989 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You are more than welcome @kimi‌

    I watched it three times today, and I will do it again on my phone particularly when I will be on the road.

    could you tell us your research area?

    thank you a lot @science24 for these videos. I really like the way this professor teaches, he is so enthousiastic. I like also his typical british accent.

    I studied microbiology at the university and now I'm in R&D for a private company which does industrial fermentations.

    Could someone please explain the meaning of "parametrization" I looked it up but didn't understand.

    Simply put- setting or expressing parameters for equations used to specificy a curve, surface, etc. The parameters are set using one or more variables which are allowed to take on values in a given specified range.

    Wow, could we predict our academic success based on a mathematical model.
    Fortunately, I am not a biologist nor a biochemist.

  • science24science24 Posts: 989 ✭✭✭✭✭
    and also we will be able to predict as early as possible, and with relatively stable accuracy, how impactful a particular paper will be in the future, just with mathematical modeling :)>-
