A view of mathematics research productivity at U.S. regional public universities  [PDF]
Robert G. Donnelly
Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: Statistical summaries of certain kinds of mathematics research output are given for a large sample of U.S. regional public universities. These statistical summaries are reported using a variety of metrics that distinguish between single-authored and collaborative work and account for publication length.
COMPARISON OF SCIENTIFIC SOCIO-ECONOMIC RESEARCH PERFORMANCES IN EASTERN EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES  [PDF]

CES Working Papers , 2012,
Abstract: Scientific research performance measurement and its analysis creates the context where universities are forced to develop strategies to increase the values obtained from indicators such as number of scientific articles, the number of citations of these articles, h-index, g-index, etc. The purpose of this article is to analyze the performance differences arising in the socio-economic science between major universities in South-Eastern Europe, many of them EU Members. In addition, to see where they stand compared to Western Europe, will include a brief review of the results of a major university as LondonSchool of Economics and Political Science.

Abstract: Objective – To describe and categorize the status of librarians at 119 American research libraries using a typology of librarian status first developed for 50 U.S. land grant universities. Design – Survey. Setting – U.S. research universities. Subjects – 119 American research universities. Included are those universities whose library is a member of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), in addition to land grant universities who are not also ARL members, and any flagship state universities who are neither ARL nor land grant universities. All subjects are classified as either “research – very high” or “research – high” in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. The 119 institutions represent a total census of the selected population. Methods – The websites of the 119 institutions were surveyed and data on institutional characteristics such as governance, size and geography collected. Additionally, data describing librarian status characteristics such as administrator title, rank systems and tenure status was gathered from sources such as promotion and tenure documentation, faculty handbooks, and policy manuals available on websites. Data was compiled on a spreadsheet and imported into SPSS which was used to create frequencies and cross tabulations. Data was categorised and cross‐tabulated using a typology of status originally applied to 50 land grant universities in a previous study. The typology comprises four possible status types for librarians: Type 1 – Faculty: Professorial ranks. Type 2 – Faculty: Other ranks with tenure. Type 3 – Faculty: Other ranks without tenure. Type 4 – Non‐faculty: Professional or academic staff. Main Results – In the 119 institutions surveyed, librarians held faculty status at 74 (62%) institutions, of which 63 (51%) provided tenure track positions. At the remaining 45 (38%) institutions, librarians were considered non‐faculty.Of the 50 “land grant” institutions in the population, 40 (80%) had librarians with faculty status and 35 (70%) provided tenure track. Ten universities (20%) considered librarians non‐faculty.Of the 97 ARL libraries in the population, 55 (57%) had librarians with faculty status and 44 (45%) provided tenure track. Non‐faculty librarians were found at 42 (43%) of these institutions.Of the 90 public institutions in the population, 68 (76%) had librarians who were faculty, 57 (64%) provided tenure track, and 22 (24%) had non‐faculty librarians. Among the 29 private institutions the status ratios were reversed with only 4 (13%) institutions having librarians ranked as tenure

Abstract: 美国研究型大学国家实验室是美国国家创新体系重要 的组成部分,其完善的管理运行机制、人才吸纳机制、资源共 享机制和技术转移机制为科技创新创造了良好的条件。探讨美 国研究型大学国家实验室的科技创新机制,对我国研究型大 学国家实验室建设具有重要的启示。建立有效的管理运行机 制、人才培养与交流机制、先进的评估评价机制、成果转化与 技术转移机制以及资源开放共享平台已成为当务之急。
The U.S. research universities’ national laboratories are an important part of U.S. national innovation system. Their perfect management mechanisms, talent absorption mechanisms, resource sharing mechanisms, technology transfer mechanisms have created a good environment for scientific innovation. Discussing the scientific innovation mechanism of the U.S. research universities’ national laboratories has important implications to construct Chinese research universities’ national laboratories. It is imperative to establish an effective management mechanism, talent training and exchange mechanism, advanced evaluation mechanism, the transformation of achievements and technology transfer mechanism, and resources sharing platform.
Week 49 Influenza Forecast for the 2012-2013 U.S. Season  [PDF]

Quantitative Biology , 2012,
Abstract: We present results of a forecast initiated Week 49 (beginning December 9, 2012) of the 2012-2013 influenza season for municipalities in the United States. The forecast was made on December 14, 2012. Results from forecasts initiated the two previous weeks (Weeks 47 and 48) are also presented. Also results from the forecast generated with the SIRS model without AH forcing (no AH) are shown

Quantitative Biology , 2012,
Abstract: We present results of a forecast initiated following assimilation of observations for week Week 50 (i.e. the forecast begins December 16, 2012) of the 2012-2013 influenza season for municipalities in the United States. The forecast was made on December 21, 2012. Results from forecasts initiated the three previous weeks (Weeks 47-49) are also presented. Also results from forecasts generated with an SIRS model without absolute humidity forcing (no AH) are shown.

Quantitative Biology , 2012,
Abstract: This document is part of a series of near real-time weekly influenza forecasts made during the 2012-2013 influenza season. Here we present results of a forecast initiated following assimilation of observations for Week 51 (i.e. the forecast begins December 23, 2012) for municipalities in the United States.
