Analyzing the Legacy of Henrietta Lacks

In 1951, a young black woman named Henrietta Lacks was diagnosed with cervical cancer. During her treatment, her doctor took a sample of her cells and tried to grow them in culture. The cells, called HeLa cells, were the first human cells that could be grown in a laboratory and are still the most widely studied cells in biomedical research, having led to treatments for diseases such as polio, HIV, and cancer.

Join the webinar on Wednesday, November 13, 11:00-12:00 PM EST, where Chris Belter, Informationist at the NIH Library, National Institutes of Health, will discuss how he used advanced analytics and Research Intelligence solutions to analyze the research fields and impact that has resulted from the use of HeLa cells, an approach that can be used to investigate the impact of other research areas as well.

  • Strategies for Securing Early Career Research Funding Jul 15 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Melodi Moore, University of Texas Galveston; Cristal P. Sanchez, Texas Tech; and Linda Galloway, Elsevier
    As they progress from being students to independent scholars, early-career researchers face challenges from high workloads and long hours, “publish or perish” pressures, tenure track requirements, administrative workloads and decreasing grant proposal success rates. Since 1982, NIH grants to principal investigators under the age of 46 have dropped steadily, per research published in 2017 by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This trend has dire impacts not only for basic research but also for science as a profession in the US. Multiple studies show that researchers’ future funding can depend on whether or not they had early-career grant success early in their careers; moreover, research also shows that early-career grant-winners were also 50% more likely to become a professor than were the ones who failed to qualify.

    Join us for a webinar to share services, solutions and strategies supporting early-career researchers’ discovery of funding opportunities—how to find them, and how to maximize proposal success.
  • Optimizing Scopus Research Data Points for Times Higher Education Rankings Recorded: Jun 16 2020 56 mins
    Liz Bober -Library Assessment Officer, Case Western Reserve University & Charity Elifritz – Customer Consultant, Elsevier
    Times Higher Education (THE) has provided trusted performance data on universities for students and their families, university academics, university leaders, governments and industry, since 2004. THE World University Rankings rely on Scopus and SciVal to measure research productivity and influence to develop quantitative benchmarks for universities worldwide. These international rankings provide an important yardstick for North American Institutions and play a key role in attracting top students from around the globe.

    Join Liz Bober, Library Assessment Officer, for a presentation on how Scopus and SciVal help optimize Case Western University research information and datapoints. Liz will share insights into how she uses the Scopus Institution Profile Wizard to logically organize research output data for individual departments and schools within the institution. Further, she will discuss how her team educates researchers on the importance of maintaining their research output data.

    During the webinar, the Elsevier team will also share updated materials on how Scopus data is used as part of the THE ranking methodologies.

  • Setting students up for success with science literacy Recorded: May 21 2020 59 mins
    Elizabeth Moll-Willard; Kristina Hopkins, Judson Dunham
    Science literacy may be a concept that is simple in theory, yet it can be an area of struggle across levels of study with students majoring in science. Many aspects of science literacy extend beyond the complex content and laboratory skills that students learn in the classroom.


    This webinar will provide a look into increasing science literacy through understanding scientific knowledge and practices that contribute to a more streamlined understanding of science. Presenters will offer a rounded view from the lens of a student, librarian, and platform provider on the invaluable role they play in setting students up for success, focusing on aspects of working remotely.

    Topics:

    - Identifying scientific knowledge and practices that define science literacy
    - Using ScienceDirect to supplement in-class learning and develop scientific knowledge and practices
    - How a university library can set students up for success
    - Creating a self-directed online science literacy module for students
    - The effectiveness of the ScienceDirect platform for science literacy education
    - How ScienceDirect can be accessed off campus, even when a VPN is unavailable

  • #NordicSciVal2020: VTT's scientific publication and its activity regarding SDGs Recorded: Apr 23 2020 35 mins
    Dr Arash Hajikhani, Data Scientist VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
    There are many SDG indicators and indices already developed and new metrics will certainly yet appear (e.g. Eurostat, 2007; Bandura, 2008; Tasaki et al., 2010). While most of the indicators are on a macro level (country level), we are advancing the practice of studying individual entities and their contributions to SDGs (micro level). One of the main ways to scientific and technological excellence is happening through scholarly works and academic peer reviewed literature. In this study, we look at Scopus and SciVal and how we utilize the curated SDGs related research areas in SciVal to investigate who is doing what regarding the SDGs. In addition, VTT’s research activity will be studied in relevance to SDG goals and targets.
