Knee Meniscus Regenerated with 3D-Printed Implant - About Health Degrees

Knee Meniscus Regenerated with 3D-Printed Implant - About Health Degrees | scientometrics | Scoop.it

Columbia University Medical Center researchers have devised a way to replace the knee’s protective lining, called the meniscus, using a personalized 3D-printed implant, or scaffold, infused with human growth factors that prompt the body to regenerate the lining on its own. The therapy, successfully tested in sheep, could provide the first effective and long-lasting repair of damaged menisci, which occur in millions of Americans each year and can lead to debilitating arthritis.

Cómo priorizar el presupuesto de innovación | Harvard Business Review (HBR)

Cómo priorizar el presupuesto de innovación | Harvard Business Review (HBR) | scientometrics | Scoop.it

HBR encuestó a directivos de diversas industrias y les preguntó cómo han distribuido el presupuesto y la asignación de recursos financieros. Los resultados confirman que no hay una estrategia que se preocupe por el futuro de la empresa, considerando que el presupuesto se destina principalmente a la operación que resuelva el presente inmediato.

 

• 85% se destina a las operaciones del día a día (presente inmediato);
• 5% se destina a la mejora continua que tiene un impacto en el corto plazo que aseguran una implementación rápida, más barata y con uniformidad;
• 5% se destina en las pequeñas innovaciones incrementales;
• 5% se destina en las innovaciones disruptivas (futuro de la empresa)

 

Sin embargo, al preguntar cuál podría ser una mejor proporción presupuestaria, sus respuestas fueron:

 

• 75% a las operaciones del día a día (presente inmediato);
• 5% a la mejora continua que tiene un impacto en el corto plazo que aseguran una implementación rápida, más barata y con uniformidad;
• 10% en las pequeñas innovaciones incrementales;
• 10% en las innovaciones disruptivas (futuro de la empresa)

 

Es sustancial identificar una necesidad por la creación y/o transformación de entidades al interior de las organizaciones orientadas y especializadas en la innovación que aboguen por el futuro de la organización y que no se vea influenciada por las presiones de la operación del día a día.

 

En la batalla estratégica entre el hoy y mañana, la organización necesita conscientemente considerar estratégicamente ocuparse el día de hoy por el mañana, sí es que desea tener un futuro en la industria.

Visibility and Impact of Research Publications

Seminar Leader: D. P. Dash
Faculty of Business and Design
Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus, Malaysia
ddash[at]swinburne.edu.my

Published Online: April 24, 2013

Note. This is a reflective report on a seminar led by Professor D. P. Dash at Xavier Institute of Management on December 26, 2012.

The discussions started from bibliometric measures of research impact and gradually moved towards visualising alternative notions of impact, highlighting the need for research and innovation in this domain. The need for assessing research quality and impact arises in several institutional contexts, where decisions need to be made on research funding, recruitment/tenure/promotion of research staff, strategies for enhancing research quality, and so forth. Traditionally, assessment by knowledgeable peers has been the common way to evaluate either quality or impact of research. However, academic and research institutions have a need for a more objective and transparent way to assess research. This need has been served by the so-called Journal Impact Factor (or simply Impact Factor, developed by The Institute for Scientific Information, which is known as Thomson Reuters now); it uses citation data from the journals listed in the Web of ScienceSM database--the data are presented annually in the Journal Citation Reports®. Impact Factors are calculated for every journal listed in the database, by dividing the number of current year citations by the number of peer-reviewed items published in that journal during the previous 2 years.

Over the years, some alternatives have emerged to the citation-based impact factor computed by Thomson Reuters. However, citation-based assessment of the quality and impact of research publications has become a norm in academic and research institutions. Journals with high impact factors are perceived as high-quality journals and getting published in such journals is considered a matter of prestige. However, a number of doubts have been raised as to the validity and usefulness of this measure, especially if this journal-level measure is applied at the author-level, such as in recruitment or promotion decisions (for an overview of this issue, see Dash & Ulrich, 2012, Section 4, “Formal Methods of Journal Assessment” and Section 5, “Beyond Bibliometrics”).

First of all, the excessive importance given by academic institutions to the impact factor has led to the phenomenon of “impact factor engineering,” a fact acknowledged by Thomson Reuters. This includes a variety of legitimate and illegitimate methods of increasing citation counts, such as adding more editorials, letters, and responses (and such other items which attract citations but are not counted in the denominator of the impact factor ratio), publishing more review articles (which tend to receive more citations than other types of article), and other alarming trends, such as encouraging “citation cartels,” and requiring authors to cite specific articles, a phenomenon known as “coercive citation.”

Due to such drawbacks, one needs to be careful while using impact factors. Assessing the quality and impact of a research outcome--whether a peer-reviewed journal article or a curated artefact, which is considered a legitimate research outcome in the art and design field--need not be restricted to counting citations alone. Relevance and impact of research can also be visualised in many other ways, such as (a) relevance in research education and research practice, (b) relevance in professional development and professional practice, and (c) relevance in public policy and administration.

The goal of increasing visibility, relevance, and impact of our research can be facilitated by developing constructive engagement with potential users/beneficiaries of our research from an early stage (rather than developing research outcomes independently and hoping that these will be noticed and used by others, although even this may not be ruled out). One way to do this will be to involve knowledgeable peers (including peers from industry, professions, and government) as reviewers of our work-in-progress. This or any other form of peer-engagement can contribute to enhance our research.

Publishing our research in digital repositories (such as open-access journals) is likely to increase both visibility and use. Thanks to the initiative of Google Scholar Citations, gradually more and more author-level citation data are becoming available, as well as author-level quality indicators such as h-index. In this environment, it is strategically important to ensure that our research outcomes are visible/accessible through the Web.

Comments From the Audience

Concept Hierarchy. Different research articles relate to different levels of understanding. Some articles may relate to fundamental and root-level concepts (e.g., articles contributing to the main conceptual categories in a field of research), whereas some may relate to concepts at a logically narrower level (e.g., subcategories). Citations to these different groups of articles should not be counted at par.

Need to Verify Data and Assumptions. Sometimes interesting and useful articles are found in average journals (i.e., journals with no or low impact factor). The converse is also true: Sometimes highly ranked journals publish articles of doubtful merit. There is a need to verify the quality of the data and the correctness of the assumptions underlying citation-based ranking of journals (MacRoberts & MacRoberts, 1989). This could even be a topic for doctoral research.

Direct Impact on Society. Rather than counting the number of citations, can we think of research articles as vehicles for direct impact on society and environment? Can we create new criteria for measuring impact, relating the research output to the direct impact on the ground? Thousands of journals are publishing million-plus articles every year (see, e.g., Jinha, 2010; Larsen & von Ins, 2010). How to measure the impact of this activity on our lives? This could be a topic for doctoral research too.

Politics of Knowledge. It is possible to interpret the topic from a postcolonial perspective. What does the geographical origins of the high-impact-factor journals tell us about the politics of knowledge? Can the impact factor be seen as a force of imperialism that serves to keep the less-developed countries from developing their scholarship? Can these countries come up with alternative standards of research quality which are more aligned with their specific needs at the current stage of their historical evolution?

Impact Through Discussion Forums and Social Media. While discussing research impact, we should not ignore the numerous other ways researchers influence each other, for example, through discussion forums, peer networks, and collaborative projects, nowadays facilitated by social media. For research thinking and research results to be conveyed more successfully, the language of research communication has to be made more accessible to a wider range of interested persons.

Publishing in Highly-Ranked Journals. The experience of publishing in highly-ranked journals is worth discussing. On the one hand, it demands focused hard work and perseverance, thus leading to the formation of important research capabilities. However, it also requires institutions to enable their research-oriented staff with time, resources, and incentives, which requires high investment with uncertain returns.

Impact of Consulting. When the results of consulting influence our thinking about a discipline or its theories, we may recognise it as a form of research. Of course, since consulting is paid work, giving it credit as research too frequently could lead academics away from the non-commercial pursuit of knowledge.

Moving Beyond Bibliometrics: Understanding Breakthrough Emergence through Missed Opportunities; a framework for failures in identifying breakthrough opportunities

Moving Beyond Bibliometrics: Understanding Breakthrough Emergence through Missed Opportunities; a framework for failures in identifying breakthrough opportunities | scientometrics | Scoop.it

 

 ABSTRACT 

Who is most likely to discover a breakthrough? Why are some scientists more successful than others at discovering them? By using extant theories of breakthrough emergence to predict a groundbreaking discovery in biology, RNA interference, I show that the explanatory power of combining all current theories are weak because they sample on rare successes rather than the multiple instances of failure in the discovery process. Instead, I focus on understanding these failures by interviewing scientists with high potential of discovering breakthroughs in a case historical analysis. My findings suggest that the seminal discovery was missed several times not only due to difficulties in solving a particular problem but also due to failures in identifying breakthrough opportunities. I propose a cognitive framework with institutional underpinnings at the basis of these failures. In the problem identification stage, framing barriers from pursuing normal science and existing boundary barriers between communities of scientists contribute to difficulties in identifying the breakthrough opportunity by misrepresenting the magnitude of the problem. In the problem-solving stage, scientists are constrained by paradigmatic pressures to avoid being wrong, and coupled with boundary barriers similar anti-dogmatic observations stay isolated and unsubstantiated, thus diminishing confidence to identify a new revolutionary paradigm. 

 

The author: "This work has implications in the design of organizations and institutions that partake in scientific discovery. Understanding the barriers to scientific knowledge creation is vital not only for academic administrators but also crucial from both managerial and policy standpoints. It illustrates the fundamental differences inherent in the production of scientific and technological knowledge, and directly speaks to the organizational design of science-based firms (where the literature has mainly focused on technological innovation and remains thin) by providing structural characteristics and policies that foster the production of groundbreaking discoveries. These include facilitating interdisciplinary research teams, encouraging cross-organism and

cross-field conference attendance, and providing incentives that enable the flexibility to take on side projects at the fringe. "
