Scientific Collaboration and Coauthors in Life Science Journal Articles
Ya-hsiu Fu
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2002,
Abstract: It is common to conduct collaborative research in science and technology. In particular, the development of big science, Internet, and globalization facilitated the scientific collaboration. This study used two databases, Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports as data sources. From the analysis of 320 papers in 16 journals in life sciences, the results showed that there is no significant correlation between the impact factor of journals and the number of authors. Moreover, there is no correlation of authors and the cited times, either. The number of authors and cited times in most papers are under 10 persons and 25 times, respectively.[Article content in Chinese]
Citation Patterns to Traditional and Electronic Preprints
Ya-Hsiu Fu
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2003,
Abstract: A preprint or an e-print is a research article made publicly available prior to formal publication in a peer-reviewed journal. It is a new form of scholarly communication. To understand how preprint and e-print are used, this paper examined their citation patterns. This research searched the “cited work” field in the SciSearch database. The results showed that more than 657,713 preprints were cited from 1974 to 2003. As to e-print, 109,492 citations to 15 arXiv.org archives from 1991 to 2003 were found. Since1991, the number of citations to preprints had been decreasing, while the e-prints cited had increased. The peak e-print citation rate of 3 years observed was comparable to that of print journals.[Article content in Chinese]
Free Access to Life Science Information
Ya Hsiu Fu
Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2001,
Abstract: Journal is the most formal communication channel of scientific research. Recently, the web technology and the periodical price inflation are changing the ways of scientific communication. The U. S. National Institute of Health (NIH) set up a PubMed Central (PMC) repository, and urged journal publishers to deposit their materials in PMC to provide free online access to the full text of life science research articles. This paper introduces the E-biomed, Public Library of Science, and PMC web sites in life sciences, and discusses the opinions of debates on free access. PMC is expected to balance the interests of authors, publishers, and libraries. [Article content in Chinese]
Scientific Communication and Information Seeking Behavior of Life Scientists in the Academia Sinica, Taiwan

Journal of Library Science , 1996,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the scientific communication and information seeking behavior of the life scientists at Academia Scinica, and also their perceptions of future information needs. Besides literature review, this exploratory study integrating qualitative and quantitative research methods uses questionnaire and in-depth interview to investigate this elite scientific community. The results show that there are significant relationships between information exchange behaviors and variables such as academic rank, age and specialization. Most participants project that browsing, print format, peer review, face to face communication and professional meetings still will be important in the future. Finally, this paper suggests a model of scientific communication and information seeking to emphasize that life scientists produce information and also use information via formal and informal channels.[Article content in Chinese]
Web-Based Annotation Learning System: Construction and Application  [PDF]
Hsiu-Ping Yueh, Ya-Ting Teng, Weijane Lin, Yu-Ching Wang, Chiu-Fan Hu
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.38189
Abstract: Nowadays many web-based learning materials are presented by hypertext, and the effect of on-line reading has been playing a chief role to the learning outcomes. However, with the information and networking technology changing, reading habits are much more different than before, and hypertext reading has some problems that impede reading efficiency. The research is based on the ground to develop a web-based “annotation learning system”. By using this web-based learning system as a strategy, learner can interact with learning materials and instructors, also make learner to actively explore contents. The result shows that students have high propensity to the system, and most of them feel the system is easy to use. Also, they have positive response that the system can facilitate reading on the hypertext.

The Full Information Feedback in Minimum-Effort Game: An Experiment  [PDF]
Yang Huang, Yuhang Fu, Ya Zhou, Keqiang Li
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.45003

We report an experiment designed to test for the impact of giving more information feedback about others’ choices in the previous period on coordination in a repeated minimum-effort game. We consider full and limit feedback treatments. Our results indicate that full feedback group coor- dinates at higher level of effort and more group in full feedback treatment reach equilibrium and coordination success than limit feedback group. Compared to the previous studies, we can observe the coordination outcome in the long run by repeating the game 50 times and full feedback is giving the subjects full information about others’ choices in this period and historical choices in last 10 periods in the group.

The Effect of University Teachers’ Workplace Spirituality on Employee Engagement: Professional Commitment as Mediator  [PDF]
Jianglin Ke, Fengju Zhang, Xiaocen Yan, Ya Fu
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.813145
Abstract: The current research on workplace spirituality effect is mainly carried out in the west, lacking evidence of China background and attention to university teachers, although the groups are called soul engineer in China. In order to test the effect of workplace spirituality on employee engagement of Chinese university teachers, this study collected239 samples by convenient sampling. The results of structural equation model test showed that the workplace spirituality of university teachers had a positive impact on their engagement, in which professional commitment played a partly mediating role. The results suggest that universities should strengthen their spirituality construction through various strategies.
A study of nurses’ job satisfaction: The relationship to professional commitment and friendship networks  [PDF]
Li-Se Yang, Hsieh-Hua Yang, Hsiu-Tzu Chen, Mei-Fang Chang, Yu-Fen Chiu, Ya-Wen Chou, Yen-Chi Cheng
Health (Health) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/health.2012.411167
Abstract: We suggest that employees’ job satisfaction has relationship to friendship network other than professional commitment, and argue that friendship network in the same ward and across wards will have different effects on employees’ job satisfaction. A cross-sectional survey design utilizing questionnaires was selected to fulfill the research objectives. All of the 405 nurses in the En Chou Kong Hospital were surveyed. Three hundred and three nurses completed the questionnaire representing a response rate of 74.8%. The instruments included friendship network nomination, professional commitment scale, and nurses’ job satisfaction scale (NJSS). The regression model of job satisfaction was constructed, using friendship network variables in the ward and across wards and professional commitment as independent variables. R square for each model is 0.22-0.36 for the four dimensions of job satisfaction. Professional commitment is the robust predictor. The efficiency of friendship network in the ward is a good predictor, while it is negative related to satisfaction of work load. Further, the indegree in the ward is negative related to work load. Implication was discussed.
Following the Transfer of Technology: The Embedded Social Connections in Taiwan’s Tobacco Settlements  [PDF]

Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2016.52010
Abstract: This paper examines the way in which the transfer of technology of the tobacco curing method shaped the local social relationships in Taiwan’s tobacco settlement. Ever since the tobacco industry had been initiated by Japan’s colonial policy, the tobacco leaves had been cured in tobacco buildings, which had a distinctive Japanese design. The farmers perceived the curing process to be the hardest part of their work. Using tobacco buildings to cure leaves was a complicated process, since it involved a combination of labour power exchange, time management and personal knowledge of temperature and humidity control. In this situation, a particular ‘labour power exchange’ emerged, which helped farmers to manage their time and labour power on the one hand, and on the other hand, an intimate social relationship was formed and tobacco buildings became a social centre in the local area. However, following the development of technology, curing machines were introduced to replace the traditional tobacco buildings in the 1970s. This transformation not only changed the curing method, but it also had an impact on local social relationships. By drawing on documentary research and interviews conducted with farmers and residents in tobacco settlements in Taiwan, this paper attempts to explore the story of how people, place and the tobacco industry are connected by this transfer of technology in the contemporary society.
