Here’s what I found on the scientific internet this week:
- Bibliometrics: is your most cited work your best ? I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and as far as I am concerned, the answer is negative.
- The researcher’s article : a three-part adventure. A stop-motion movie to understand how researchers publish their discoveries. A stunning work by Charlotte Arène, Julien Bobroff and Fred Rastagno at LPS.
- Clip of feathers and bowling ball falling in a vacuum. Beautiful demo.
- “You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes“. Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s jaw-dropping images from space, now in a book. Soon on my desk.
- The winners of this year Small World Photomicrography competition are out. Stunning science pictures, as usual.
- Nature explores the most-cited research of all time. No surprise here, the most-cited papers are about methods.
- Do you have the High-impact-factor Syndrome ? You’re not the only one.
- Three different ways to breathe. Superb animated GIF. Show it to your kids.
