RESUMEN

COVID-19 has unfortunately halted lab work, conferences, and in-person networking, which is especially detrimental to researchers just starting their labs. Through social media and our reviewer networks, we met some early-career stem cell investigators impacted by the closures. Here, they introduce themselves and their research to our readers.

RESUMEN

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing area of development by numerous research groups across the world with its potential applications gaining recognition since the 1950s across various fields. During the last decade of the twentieth century, researchers have actively engaged in the synthesis of nanoparticles and investigation of their physicochemical properties. Advancing the research momentum forward at the beginning of the twenty-first century, rapid development of nanoscience allowed to demonstrate unprecedented advantages of the nanomaterials and its applications in a wide range of fields. The interdisciplinary nature of nanoscience and its expansion has led to establishment of new laboratories and research centers, with increasing needs on training and educating young scientists in advanced laboratory protocols. In addition, pedagogical demands in nanotechnology and nanomaterials have resulted an emergence of new dedicated curriculums at universities which has sped up the development of nanoscience and its contribution to the body of knowledge in natural science.

RESUMEN

The issues facing academic mothers have been discussed for decades. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is further exposing these inequalities as womxn scientists who are parenting while also engaging in a combination of academic related duties are falling behind. These inequities can be solved by investing strategically in solutions. Here we describe strategies that would ensure a more equitable academy for working mothers now and in the future. While the data are clear that mothers are being disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, many groups could benefit from these strategies. Rather than rebuilding what we once knew, let us be the architects of a new world.

RESUMEN

As part of our commitment to amplifying the voices of underrepresented scientists, we are publishing the insights and experiences of a panel of underrepresented scientists. In this segment, we asked about support systems-the types of support that are most helpful (and less helpful), how to find a supportive network, and how institutions can better support underrepresented scientists. These are the personal opinions of the authors and may not reflect the views of their institutions.

RESUMEN

With advances in genomic research playing an important role in the development of clinical applications, it is important that ethical guidance for researchers is contemporary and relevant. In this article we analyse the relevant provisions in Australia's National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (revised in 2018) and consider the guidance it provides for contemporary genomics research. We analyse four key areas: genomic information; biobanking and use of human tissue; consent to participation in genomic research, including specific issues related to participation by children; and return of findings. We conclude that Australia's National Statement is well-placed to provide guidance to Australian researchers on issues relating to genomics, although there is scope for additional guidance on some issues related to consent.

RESUMEN

As part of our commitment to amplifying the voices of underrepresented scientists, we are publishing the insights and experiences of a panel of underrepresented scientists. Here they discuss ways that individuals in the scientific community can begin to recognize and overcome their own racial biases. These are the personal opinions of the authors and may not reflect the views of their institutions.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: The h-index of a researcher refers to the maximum number h of his/her publications that has at least h citations via the concept of the square area. The x-index is determined by the maximum area of a rectangle under the curve to interpret authors' individual research achievements (IRAs). However, the properties of both metrics have not been compared and discussed before. This study aimed to investigate whether both metrics of h- and x-index are suitable for evaluating IRAs in a short period of years. METHODS: By searching the PubMed database (Pubmed.com), we used the keyword "PLoS One" (journal) and downloaded 50,000 articles published in 2015 and 2016. A total of 146,346 citations were listed in PubMed Central and 27,035 authors(with h-index ≥1) were divided into 3 parts. Correlation coefficients among metrics (ie, AIF, h, g, Ag, and x-index) were examined. The bootstrapping method used for estimating 95% confidence intervals was applied to compare differences in metrics among author groups. The most cited authors and topic burst were visualized by social network analysis. The most prominent countries/areas were highlighted by the x-index and displayed via choropleth maps. RESULTS: Results demonstrated that, first, the h-index had the least relation to other metrics and failed to differentiate authors' IRAs among groups, particularly in a short time period. Second, the top 3 highest x-index for countries were the United States, China, and the UK but with the productivity-oriented feature. Third, the most cited medical subject headings (ie, MeSH terms) were genome, metabolome, and microbiology, and the most cited author was Lori Newman (whose x-index = 13.52, and h = 2) from Switzerland with the article (PMID = 26646541) cited 291 times. The need for the x-index combined with a visual map for displaying authors' IRAs was verified and recommended. CONCLUSIONS: We verified that the h-index failed to differentiate authors' IRAs among author groups in a short time period. The x-index combined with the Kano map is recommended in research for a better understanding of the authors' IRAs in other journals or disciplines, not just limited to the journal of PloS One as we did in this study.

RESUMEN

INTRODUCTION: The efficiency of clinical procedures is based on practical and theoretical knowledge. Countless daily information is available to the orthodontist, but it is up to this professional to know how to select what really has an impact on clinical practice. Evidence-based orthodontics ends up requiring the clinician to know the basics of biostatistics to understand the results of scientific publications. Such concepts are also important for researchers, for correct data planning and analysis. OBJECTIVE: This article aims to present, in a clear way, some essential concepts of biostatistics that assist the clinical orthodontist in understanding scientific research, for an evidence-based clinical practice. In addition, an updated version of the tutorial to assist in choosing the appropriate statistical test will be presented. This PowerPoint® tool can be used to assist the user in finding answers to common questions about biostatistics, such as the most appropriate statistical test for comparing groups, choosing graphs, performing correlations and regressions, analyzing casual, random or systematic errors. CONCLUSION: Researchers and clinicians must acquire or recall essential concepts to understand and apply an appropriate statistical analysis. It is important that journal readers and reviewers can identify when statistical analyzes are being inappropriately used.
