INTRODUCTION: A high publication rate for surgical trainees is considered a prerequisite for progression to Higher Specialist Training (HST). This rate has arguably been decreased by the formation of a new 'run-through' training pathway. We aim to quantify the number of publications that the 'new' pathway trainees have attained compared to the 'old' pathway trainees. We further aim to compare the H-index and average citations between General Surgery (GS) and Trauma and Orthopaedic (T&O) trainees...

A vast and increasing scientific literature is published each year, including books, journals, research articles and reviews. One approach to determining the value of an academic publication involves measuring how often other academic writers or researchers refer to or cite it. This is the essence of bibliometrics. This article examines how bibliometrics has developed. It describes how analysing citations provides a measure of the influence of specific articles (individual article citations), to compare different journals (journal impact factor) and to examine the output and impact of individual academics (the h-index)...

Agricultural soil was treated with biochar (5% w/w) produced from two pyrolysis temperatures (400 and 700 °C) of giant Miscanthus (GMC-400 and GMC-700, respectively), and the subsequent sorption of sulfathiazole (STZ) was evaluated as a function of pH (2, 5, and 7) and aging period (0, 3, and 6 months). Because sorption was nonlinear, with 0.51 < N < 0.75, the linearized sorption coefficient (K d(*)) was used for the comparison across samples. The K d(*) of GMC-400 treatment (3.96-9.96 L kg(-1)) was higher than that of GMC-700 treatment (1...

The H-index is widely used to quantify and standardize researchers' scientific impact. However, the H-index does not account for the fact that co-authors rarely contribute equally to a paper. Accordingly, we propose the use of a stratified H-index to measure scientific impact. The stratified H-index supplements the conventional H-index with three separate H-indices: one for first authorships, one for second authorships and one for last authorships. The stratified H-index takes scientific output, quality and individual author contribution into account...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to evaluate quality of conduct and reporting of published systematic reviews and meta-analyses in paediatric surgery. We also aimed to identify characteristics predictive of review quality. BACKGROUND: Systematic reviews summarise evidence by combining sources, but are potentially prone to bias. To counter this, the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) was published to aid in reporting. Similarly, the Assessing the Methodological Quality of Systematic Reviews (AMSTAR) measurement tool was designed to appraise methodology...

INTRODUCTION: Bibliometrics is a science which evaluates the impact of the scientific work of a journal or of an author, using mathematical and statistical tools. Impact Factor (IF) is the first bibliometric parameter created, and after it many others have been progressively conceived in order to go beyond its limits. Currently bibliometric indexes are used for academic purposes, among them to evaluate the eligibility of a researcher to compete for the National Scientific Qualification, in order to access to competitive exams to become professor...

Engagement in research and academic productivity are crucial components in the training of a neurosurgeon. This process typically begins in residency training. In this study, we analyzed individual resident productivity as it correlated to publications across all Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited neurosurgery training programs in an attempt to identify how programs have developed and fostered a research culture and environment. We obtained a list of current neurosurgery residents in ACGME-accredited programs from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons database...

The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess the relationship between quantitative measures of research productivity and academic rank for full-time pediatric dentistry faculty members in accredited U.S. and Canadian residency programs. For each pediatric dentist in the study group, academic rank and bibliometric factors derived from publicly available databases were recorded. Academic ranks were lecturer/instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and professor. Bibliometric factors were mean total number of publications, mean total number of citations, maximum number of citations for a single work, and h-index (a measure of the impact of publications, determined by total number of publications h that had at least h citations each)...

BACKGROUND: In science peer-reviewed publications serve as an important indicator of scientific excellence and productivity. Therefore, every scientist and institution must carefully maintain and update records of their scientific publications. However, in most institutions and universities articles are often managed in a redundant file-based and non-central way. Whereas excellent reference management software packages such as Zotero, Endnote or Mendeley exist to manage bibliographies and references when writing scientific articles, we are not aware of any open source database solution keeping track of publication records from large scientific groups, entire institutions and/or universities...
