Jake Goldenfein on Google Scholar

"Our guest today is Jack Golden Fine. He's a post doctoral fellow slow at the digital life initiative and he's originally from Melbourne Australia. He's research looks law in Computational Society including including the impact of platforms on user behavior. He's most recent piece of research. Looks at Google scholar. A relatively new free web search engine that indexes scholarly work in which has quickly become central to academic life just like other Google services have in other disciplines. I sat down with him just before the holidays and I began by asking him to explain what Google scholar is for the non scholars among us. And why it's become so important Horton. In recent years Google Scola emerged in two thousand and full when it was first launched it was just an academic search. Such engines are just like Google that ordinary such engine accepted return. Scholarly results how it defines something as scholarly has always been a little a bit vague. And maybe we'll talk more about why the Vagary of that is a bit problematic but the idea was it would return results that were relevant for scholars. Looking King Faculty make work since then. It's had a few more features added that perhaps beyond set actually more important or have had a bigger effect on the academic field in two thousand and six you able to stop saying citation counts associated with particular scholarly documents and then three years later. Two two thousand eleven google Google scholar launched sort of citation platform and what they did was give each racer. A profile like scholar profile filed outlined oleo publications and the citation counts of those publications calculations of academic quality or the quality of eraser. Sure premised on the amount of citations their publications getting over particular number of us. Silly amount the number of times other researchers will quote from your research search in their own research. Exactly it's the number of times that An article a document that you ride is referred to by other researches. It's pretty new right. You said it it started in two thousand and four so less than I mean a little over ten years. How how big is it now in the field? It do every researchers look at it when they're working on a new topic or so I would say. Almost every researcher would be familiar with it when Dougal scholars such sort of emerged on the sane librarians. This who Training young racers will always telling them be very wary of this because we sort of don't understand how it works as well as we understand. How other academic search search engines wet? It's also interesting. Because most academic search engines are quite disciplinary specific and they all they return results to a particular the corpus or repertoire of journals whereas Google scholar is disciplined agnostic a returns results across disciplines irritations results from academic journals but also other kinds of publications and whereas in traditional academic search engines. You have quite a lot of control over. What what you're searching for in Google scholar you have relatively limited control you can you can constrain the dates? But that's kind of more or less it. So it's always occupied had a bit of a funny position in research toolkit but it's increasingly a used because we're getting a lot more sort of disciplinary environments where people are interested in finding out information outside of their discipline and so google scholar becomes sort of fest port of coal in that kind of instance. But the thing that we're finding is maybe the big use of Google scholar is it's it's citation counting function it's bibliometric function on because what Google Scuola represents his really the easiest way to say. How many citations a particular research has received how come like what? Where did you get those metrics before? and and why were they less easy to find. People who are metrics have been around for a long time in the fifties those information scientists named using Garfield field. Who developed this process of citation analysis? Way You could effectively automate the organization. That is the indexing of scholarly work Iraq by its references so libraries with struggling with how to organize exploding amount of scientific and scholarly literature. And they will. Also you're thinking about how to to use computers to do that. The problem with during that is the sort of need to figure out a way to define the subject matter of of a publication in a way that a computer can understand and Eugene Garfield came up with a really clever way of doing that which is to look at references. Organiz it by the references rather than the actual actual content. This idea was really successful. It was really useful research tool but it also became clear quite early on that counting. Citations could give you a really Sort of rough guide to the quality of work because it gave you a measure of its reception in the field. It didn't tell you how people were trading but a told you people were rating in had some some sort of visibility. So through the sixties and seventies this eventually turned into a commercial product and in the nineties that was purchased by Thomson Reuters Webb of science over the last couple of decades has been probably the primary tool to get metric information but it's number one. The product was General Impact Factor in journal impact factor measured the number of citations to articles in particular journal. Over set a number of years. This citation analysis was used primarily for evaluating the quality of channels rather than the quality of individual researches now individual researchers started added to organize their own sort of scholarly prestige around the prestigious journal. Yeah so if you publish a nature medicine for example for a doctor it's not the same mm-hmm as in a local journal. That might be great but less has left citations nationally. Exactly so what we see during the seventies eighties nineties his citation starting to do lots of interesting things. We started to see journals effectively set their price according to the number of citations that were getting individual scholars. Who now were in this more competitive scully? Well because you know in the second half of the twentieth century the number of scholars in Christ raced dramatically along with massive increases in funding to. There's a lot more research is. There's a lot more research. Things are getting more competitive. The Prestige of your journal Becomes go away to sort of define your position in a market

"This new era of peer to peer trade that as restart to take, you know, take responsibility for what we can do and should be doing to protect our digital digital footprints IP. You know, that will perhaps in this future. I can imagine as having full agency over the IP itself, and and benefiting in material ways perhaps from how I exploited commercially. Otherwise, so there's a hope that there will be this new era of peer to peer trade that it might eliminate the need for intermediaries that have been taxing society paps unfairly for many years and paps the ones that remain will remain on the basis of value, and essentially there'll be this widespread democratization of the world economic system that currently is dominated by a few powerful actors who wield centralized control over markets. And so in some ways, I recognize some of those notions. As wishful thinking, the pragmatic side of me, but I do sense that are certain things that may be realized at least version of those things that might be rely. Sized Carolina spoke about the initial tension that institutions and governments perhaps had towards the internet as a technology that would potentially disrupt them altogether. I feel like we have a new wave of that again. And there's a gung ho extreme that's blockchain and bitcoin that in hotel hotel hotel, which is I think unhealthy, but I think there's some things that we might. Well, we might do well to reflect on and sort of ask ourselves. How do we harness that sentiment and weave it into companies like yours at Thomson Reuters? How do we influence the policy makers listening to us right now to not see this as a takeover or something of that nature? I mean, I personally think it's really exciting to think about a global electronic currency sort of value transfer cross. Border cross continent. I think it's super exciting to think about that. And the possibilities that come with that. Is it bitcoin? Is it something else? You know? I don't know what the currency will be. But just the fact that there is a framework there that can facilitate that is awesome to think about right. And I think that we need to have. You know, as many people as possible thinking about how how experiment with that. How to to make sure that whatever this new framework is is acceptable and inclusive. So that while we're off building this new global network and framework for us to to transfer value. You don't leave half the world behind because they're not connected to it. So I mean, I think the possibilities. There are quite a quite endless. I would actually like to not have to pay my Bank, you know, fifty dollars every tunnel. I want to move dollars from the us into South Africa, for example. Right. And this could potentially help with. Someone is has vested interest here. Exactly. So no, look, what do you make of this Carolina just to piggyback off that? I mean, I think that policymakers need to listen to a vested interest. Right. So in considering what needs to be done what the possibilities are think the voices of individuals the voices of commercial entities. The voices of all stakeholders must be hit. So I I I fear that perhaps what is perceived as the peps negative possibility were so scared we're not we're going to do is because we haven't spoken in after each other or listened enough to each other. And I think that the way to break this Papp's would be to generate a wide spread African discussion about what the possibilities and where we could be going. That's really well put I'm going to close by reading a quote from the us Commissioner for infrastructure and energy, Dr money Abuzaid who is quoted as saying in order. Accelerate the creation of a single digital market for Africa. There is a need have similar common. Roles across the continent to ensure a more predictable.

"Again, the tapes will show whether or not he did and that's key because it will establish whether or not this was premeditated murder. Those gruesome details emerge about him being dismembered somehow, this is something that Saudis briefing anonymously had said is absolutely not true. Those tapes critical to stabbing that something the Turks may want to get out, then they, whereas the body, the Saudi. As have claimed that they passed it to some kind of intermediary here in this damn bowl, but they don't know where it is. Is that credit Turkish sources have talked about the tape, some reports that officials have also heard the tapes. What do we know about whether the Turks are willing to actually release them publicly. Yeah, the Turks have been under lots of pressure to release them publicly and I'm not sensing any indication that that is going to happen. The public and the press do not know the full contents, but as being active briefing about their alleged contents, it's been little question moss. Well one, they just put them out that that would clear up this issue and we would know wants them for sure. The answer to that is absolutely clear. But the indications are that if they were bugging the consulate behind me or that we're using some kind of method that they don't want to reveal. In other words, a mess, their employees in other embassies in other concerts than that would explain why this is an axe by the intelligence services, the Saudis and now rested some Saudi nationals. They fired other top officials. What are the other questions out there? Is it possible at all that a team of more than a dozen Saudis could come to Turkey carry out this operation without the knowledge and the acceptance and the direction of the crown prince. Yeah, I think that goes to the absolute nub of the argument that's being put out there how credible, how believable is it? And we're now saying expressions of doubts not just from President Trump or the Europeans in particular said, they want to see more information being put out that his why it's partially problematic is because they're saying that this was an operation that was initiated by the deputy head of intelligence, but they are also briefing. There is a general order out then now to try and persuade dissidents to return to Saudi Arabia peacefully. That is a quotation. There's been provided from senior Saudi source, Thomson Reuters, if that is true, how likely is it in an absolutist monarchical system that a deputy head of intelligence would go against those orders initiate this kind of operation and murder, a man who was the most well, known outspoken critic of Mohammed bin some and so far at least the king of Saudi Arabia's standing behind his son, the crown prince. Yeah. I mean, there are lots of questions at one point. It was looking as if he might be vulnerable, but this explanation, if it's both by the Trump administration also by European governments that may well be enough. But yes, they're all those questions out there. The moments about who exactly knew about what was going on that and how believable others explanations, but that statements is support from king Salman came in the form of appointing Muhammad bin Salman as head of the committee is looking at the restructuring of Saudi intelligence as a result of this murder. That is a strong statement as well. We've also seen it from a President Trump as well, and he's going to come down to this. George, I'll give me President Trump has been the most only solve competitive European leaders and and and the president's in saying how much America relies on not just energy, but also trade relations. Europeans do as well. The UK Connie's absolutely dependent for those steals. It becomes down. A choice between energy and trade versus human rights? I think history would dictate we know which way governments are going to swim in panel. Thanks very much. Let's talk now to Canete of the Washington Post jamarcus. He's editor at the post, Karen. Thank you for joining us this morning. We saw with President Trump said to your paper last night. Your first reaction to the Saudi cover story, much more pithy utter Bs. Yeah, I still believe and the postseason institutions still believes that this is not an explanation. This is an attempt at a cover up so much. Doesn't add up for me personally, who knew Jamal worked with Jamal over the last year? You know this, this idea.

"Feel free to if you can remember eleven AM on Sundays no longer on the Thursday evening time slot so we're excited to, be back, two Sundays, where we originally started here just. A few years ago and up until the twelve o'clock hour. Full hour, of discussion, regarding the stock market, the economy financial planning whatever may be on your mind hopefully we're covering a lot of ground during this hour. Program so again, the. Weekly Report, here at, eleven AM on WCBS talk radio. Kicking off the week we've had a lot of activity so. Far in, this week Thursday was a, big day we had. An intraday high on the SNP, of approximately one percent on the Dow the market was up over one point six percent on. Thursday almost a four hundred point change which is the first day where we've seen the market have a one. Percent move since April so we're getting a lot of activity coming out of this week and US stocks experienced some late summer volatility I, think because markets really have had to shift through some of the headline news on trade as well as domestic and international earnings reports and just to give some data on the program. Here this morning as we try to do each and every Sunday and bringing a lot of information here to the weekly wealth. Report the volatility index which many of you investors may know as the vix is a. Gauge of the stock market and its volatility it spiked by Twenty five percent this, week actually on August. Fifteenth which was Wednesday after ten, cent which is a Chinese technology behemoth surprised investors with the first drop in profits in a. Decade which push the stock down by ten percent so the Chinese government has long been a champion of ten. Cents but now is directly to blame for the results according to the company after the government froze new game approvals due to regulatory restructuring, so that was some information coming out of this week's activity which I thought was very interesting elsewhere the Thomson Reuters commodity index has fallen to its lowest level of the year with. Two of its, largest components copper and crude oil continuing to fall from year to date highs copper has long been considered a. Proxy for global Economic activity and has. Entered a bear market falling over twenty two percent From its. Recent high to levels not, seen really since may of two thousand seventeen so jitters about a slowdown I thinking global growth as well, as some heightened conflict over trade agreements between the US Turkey and China coupled with. Concerns that the Chinese economy may be slowing are, really behind this decline I'm going to get into a lot more detail hopefully in the, program here this morning discussing the news with what's going on in Turkey the markets rallying up near the highs just to kind of, put things. In perspective as far, as where we are by the way. Return, wise so year to date the SNP is up over six percent again. Having that big intraday gain on Thursday as well as the Dow Jones. The Dow Jones industrial, average is up over three percent year to date and the NASDAQ index which is a technology heavily heavily laced technology Stock index is up over, thirteen percent year to date so we've had a pretty interesting week here so far in the markets and, oil prices are down nearly twelve percent since the start of June on the same. Worries that economic growth could weigh on energy demand. As well as because US refineries are currently operating and this is an interesting number to, bring to the show here this morning at ninety eight point one percent of capacity again US refineries are currently operating at ninety eight, point one percent of capacity the, highest level since nineteen ninety nine and. This, has led to a surge in inventory so talking about the economy the. US economy has kicked off the second half of the year on solid. Footing so that's a, good thing with encouraging data from both console Boomers and the housing market. Just to point out some information about the housing market July retail sales rose for a sixth consecutive month and this was not to deal with the housing market specifically this is the retail market that is for consumers but July retail sales rose for a sixth. Consecutive month increasing zero point five percent when a month over month basis led by discretionary spending yes, that's by you all the, consumers spending your your hard earned dollars so again discretionary spending in categories this is interesting such as automobiles and restaurants led to that sixth consecutive month increase so. The solid start I think, to consumer spending has for the time being quelled concerns that a higher inflation would. Eat into personal consumption that's been something that a lot of Individual investors have question the last several weeks and months so back, to the housing data though in housing data both, building permits and housing starts increased last month in July one, point five percent and zero point nine percent respectively, so building permits, again increased in July one and a, half percent and, housing starts new housing starts increased zero point nine percent and this. Is, indicating to some. That homebuilders will remain active through perhaps the second. Half of, this calendar year two. Thousand eighteen despite worries that we are seeing higher mortgage rates and home prices which. Could deter some demand, so weeks ago I talked about where we were in the housing market and looking at some of these numbers and. Some of the prices on homes new Home sales, as well, as existing home sales being towards the upper level of the range we've seen this year presenting a little bit. Of a an interesting position for individuals looking to purchase a new home or buying, existing home is the market. A little frothy here and that was a concern I think a lot of people had but again looking at some of these numbers here through this week It looks like this trend may in fact continue perhaps through, the second half of this calendar. Year and kind of winding down here in the mid. To late August getting ready for the start of school and just a few more weeks it's amazing to see how quickly you know this summer has. Gone by but perhaps that may also pick up in some of the economic activity were in, the stock market because there's a lot, of individuals the old saying sell in may. And. Go, away there's not a lot, of activity during the summer. Months so I think it'll be interesting to keep our eye on things over the next couple of. Weeks as we picked back up here in early September but talking about the markets again and where we are as far as on a sector basis select economically sensitive sectors and, technology stocks I think have. Really fueled the rally here again lately, as major, US indexes again are challenging these all-time highs so the Recently maligned technology sector just a couple of weeks ago was up over, one percent during the week financials and consumer discretionary stocks also kind of assisted in these recent gains and the US ten year treasury yields continue to, hold fractionally below that three percent. Level so bond proxy sectors have struggled and also seen. In consumer Staples and the real estate sector declining by more than one percent and utilities also being relatively better but still negative so you know the. Equity market again the volatility right now is something to pay very close attention to and as, I was mentioning earlier the vix volatility, index of referred to as that fear index. Just. The, other week interestingly enough it, closed below eleven for the. First time Since January and, that was back on, August seventh so we're getting some interesting readings out of the vix. Volatility index and just to point, out last month the July average the vix reading in July the average was thirteen. Point three, which was the lowest monthly average since January And August, is on track for a possible another decline With. An average, right around eleven point seven ballpark so far so again we have to pay attention to a lot of things taking. Place here on, the economic front with the stock market as I mentioned crude oil declining since its early July. Highs mentioning the various inventory and stockpile measures creeping higher one thing I also wanna mention further demonstrating the. Summer Malays and energy are the sectors mixed earnings results so headline earnings per share earnings per share growth, of more than one hundred percent is is certainly eye-popping but it doesn't complete the story because as the earning season now. Has evolved with the energy stocks in this particular sector the trend in energy earnings. Per share estimates has in fact deteriorated ever so slightly so per the Thompson Reuters The IBS the energy sector saw pre earning season. Growth estimates of one hundred and, forty five percent decline to one hundred and twenty four. Percent so this decelerating trend certainly all sets to some. Degree the headline of the s. and p. five, hundred the energy sector. Growth I think it also demonstrates some of the rationale behind energy. Being the only think of. This the only sector in the s. and p. five hundred that has declined thus far in the third. Quarter that's very. Interesting so you, know the thing that I do want to point, out, however is that our view at RV remains that despite.

"But they didn't collect a lot of data right the data points they harvested at facebook on near eighty seven million people are nothing compared to like big brokers that we've hardly even heard of nothing certainly compared to experience and equifax and so on and so those companies will breach in the future and those breaches will be much worse we'll have much more immediate consequences than what cambridge analytica did and there is a real possibility that we will become privacy nihilists that we may turn around like imagine that we took really significant steps now to reign in data collection whether that by creating statutory damages regime or creating strict rules around how that can be gathered and held or whatever and in ten years we just had a string of breaches each worse than the last it might be tempting to conclude that there's just nothing to be done that privacy is dead that the future is is is grim and that we're going to end up in terrible terrible trouble and there's no point in trying to to regulate it all in the same way that even if we take extreme measures now to defend our climate and to save ourselves from climate change there storms in our future that make this year storms look very small by comparison and it may be tempting to conclude that those storms that we face in the future proof that there's no point in trying to do anything and actually the reality is that we need to do something now to prevent storms that are much bigger than the storms that are to come which are in turn much bigger than the storms who just lived through the storms we couldn't survive and that's true privacy too.
