Web of Science™ Discovery Quiz: Discover the research on Solar Energy


Every hour the sun beams onto Earth more than enough energy to satisfy global energy needs for an entire year. Solar energy is the technology used to harness the sun's energy and make it useable.

It is predicted that by 2025 solar will be the largest source of energy on the planet.

Thanks to improvements in photovoltaic technology, chemical bonding, photocatalysts and three-dimensional nanoscale heterojunctions, the use of the sun as the world’s primary source of energy will be no longer be for the environmentally conscious; it can be made more accessible to the masses.

Publisher talk : "Game Changers for Researchers: Altmetrics, Big Data, Open Access and Text Mining -- What Might They Change?"

By Friday, September 26, 2014 , , No comments

Overview
American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

This publisher publishes 3 respected peer-reviewed journals:
1. Science – the premier global science weekly with 5-year Impact Factor 33.6
2. Science Signalling – the leading journal of cell signalling and regulatory biology
3. Science Translational Medicine – integrating medicine, engineering and science to promote human health

Abstract : Scientific researchers face an exciting, and possibly surprising array of new methods to manipulate and manage the impacts of their research. These tools include Altmetrics – usage analysis of their research including citations, social media and full-text downloads; Big Data - where by the researcher utilizes  big data sets  to handle complex information; Open Access – OA  journals offer the opportunity for  wider dissemination of  researchers’ scientific  findings; and Text Mining where tailored text “definitions” of research terms may derive more high quality information to enhance the use of the research by others. With these tools, research will be translated more quickly into tangible results.
