Thread 1/18

In August, @alexbollfrass & I jotted down thoughts on how the dynamics of Russia’s war on Ukraine might affect the global nuclear order #OpenAccess @SurvivalEditors @IISS_org.

We are often asked to reflect on those conclusions.…
Thread 2/18

When we wrote, we did so to make a “contribution of scholarship.” Early in the war, there were lots of quick, reactionary takes predicting the nuclear order’s collapse. We attempted to think through what history, political science, & policy literature teaches.
Thread 3/18

Our conclusion was that the global nuclear order, flawed as it may be, is much more durable than others were warning. Even with its innate inequities & Russia’s misbehavior, the order will continue to serve the interests of nuclear energy- & weapons-capable states.

With the #ControlledDigitalLending #CDL case coming on Monday (3/20) @jziskina and I are excited to announce the release of “The Publisher Playbook: A Brief History of the Publishing Industry’s Obstruction of the #Library Mission.” [link at end of thread] /1
The purpose of this paper is to outline the legal & other obstructions that #libraries have encountered from the publishing industry. Libraries have continued to perform their routine activities or made advancements to increase #access to the public in innovative ways... /2
...yet, #libraries and their readers have routinely engaged in lengthy battles to defend the ability for libraries to fulfill their mission and serve the #publicgood.

Big @batsgoviral week! In @PNASNews and @ScienceAdvances we test how to prevent zoonotic #spillover by interrupting virus transmission in bat reservoirs. Short story: culls didn’t reduce spillover but altered rabies spatial spread; transmissible vaccines may be a solution. A 🧵.
First culling. Vampire bats are poisoned throughout Latin America to reduce blood feeding on humans and livestock and in hopes of preventing uniformly lethal rabies infections. Whether culls reduce rabies spillover is still controversial even after ~50 years of use.
We studied a 2 year bat cull in southern Peru where >21,000 bats were treated with a spreadable poison #vampiricide. This region suffered >1000 rabies outbreaks from 2003-2019 making a rare & statistically powerful case study to test whether bat culls reduce viral spillover.

Starting now w/ @AiHisano Geoff Jones and Robert Lockhart - ESC event about #writing your #firstbook #bizhis
What steps emerging business historians should take to write their first monograph?
From @AiHisano
1) think about what kind of scholar you want to be,
2) explore broader frameworks for your book than you had in your dissertation
Geoff Jones: "as much as you can, leave some space between your defense and your book, perhaps write one article to focus on your specific contributions, put yourself out there, then write a better-conceptualized book project"

We found that fast heart rate on standing was common and sometimes very disabling in people whose recovery from covid-19 was prolonged. 2/
'Orthostatic tachycardia' means the heart rate goes up (sometimes very dramatically) on standing up, but the blood pressure doesn't drop (the latter is another condition called orthostatic hypotension). 3/

📜Paper published!📜 "Commonsense psychology in human infants and machines" in #Cognition #OpenAccess with Gala Stojnić, @gandhikanishk, @ShannonYasuda, and @LakeBrenden 👶🤖…
Human infants 👶 have a constellation of rich and flexible predictions about what motivates people’s actions, a "commonsense psychology." These predictions are typically missing from machine-learning algorithms, leading to AI 🤖 that lacks flexibility to new social situations.
For AI to look like human intelligence, machines might need to start from the same core abilities as infants. But infants’ commonsense psychology has not yet been evaluated in a framework that could be directly tested against machines’—let alone built into them.

The COVID-19 vaccine study that took up most of my 2022 is out 😁 The most data types I’ve integrated in a single cohort - RNASeq, proteomics, lipidomics, cytokines, immune cell counts, & antigen specific antibody + T cells. But what did we find? 🧵 1/X…

How to resolve content moderation dilemmas between free speech and harmful misinformation? Thrilled to share our new article just out in PNAS
With @JasonReifler @stefanmherzog @lorenz_spreen @STWorg @MLeiser and Ralph Hertwig @arc_mpib @mpib_berlin 1/11…
Content moderation of online speech is a moral minefield, especially when 2 key values come into conflict: upholding freedom of expression and preventing harm caused by misinformation. In our study, we examined how the U.S. public would approach such difficult trade-offs. 2/11
In a conjoint survey experiment, U.S. respondents indicated whether they would remove problematic social media posts on 4 misinformation topics and whether they would take punitive action against the accounts. 3/11

#OpenAccess paper in the Journal of Archaeological Science applying digital and statistical methods to analyse polygonal masonry in South Central #Italy 1/5
Dry-set masonry of "polygonal" blocks (here, Alatri in Lazio) is v. common in pre-Roman Italy and across Iron Age Mediterranean.

But perceived as irregular and hard to quantify, this technique is overlooked in current debates about societal and economic impacts of building 2/5 Image

Most brain-imaging studies make 3 questionable assumptions: mental events are localizable, map uniquely to dedicated #brain circuitry, & are independent of larger context. These 19th-century views need an update. New #OpenAccess paper in @TrendsCognSci. 1/…
Better assumptions: (1) Mental events comprise distributed activity across the whole brain; (2) Brain & behavior are linked by degenerate, many-to-one mappings; (3) Mental events emerge as a complex ensemble of non-linear, interacting signals from brain, body, & outside world. 2/

1. DOAJ: Directory of Open Access Journals - 1) Go to 2) Search for journals 3) Apply filter "Without: APCs"

After finding a journal, check if they're indexed or not.

I was surprised by the number and quality of articles I saw on DOAJ.
2. University Agreements: Your University may have an agreement with specific scientific journals to publish articles for FREE or at a reduced cost.

Check your University's website for details. @UofT, for example, has 100% waivers with 8 publishers:…

Un scénario cauchemardesque pour un #chercheur, confié par @bernardrentier, ancien recteur de l’@UniversiteLiege, pour un article sur les revues prédatrices rédigé par @JohanneMontay pour la #RTBF #Thread 🧵1/8
Les revues prédatrices (predatory journals) sont des revues en #OpenAccess exigeant des frais de publication (#APC pour "Article Processing Charges") pour financer un processus éditorial inexistant. 2/8
Elles contactent régulièrement les chercheurs par mail et leur qualité douteuse est souvent flagrante : site avec des fautes d'orthographe, liens morts, ...

Les conséquences peuvent être graves, si vous êtes piégé ! Alors, comment éviter le pire ? 3/8

1/5 This review by Gonthier (2022) tackles a crucial topic: are non-verbal intelligence tests culture fair? This is important because you often see the reasoning "ethnicity/race 1 has lower IQ than ethnicity/race 2, & it must be genetic because non-verbal tests are culture fair".
2/5 This takes ugly extremes such as that there is "some genetic component in Black–White differences in mean IQ" (Rushton & Jensen 2005) etc. So the review here really matters to address threats to such conclusions and can set the record straight.
3/5 Gonthier investigates numerous sources of evidence, from controlled lab experiments in the US to n=1 qualitative reports from ethnologists dating many decadesback, concluding that there is substantial evidence that non-verbal tests are *not* culture fair.

I'm thrilled to share my latest publication -- "Hindu: A History," published in Comparative Studies in Society and History.

The article traces the multilingual history of the term "hindu" over 2,500 years. 🧵

#Hindu #Hinduism…
The article was partly inspired by David Lorenzen's seminal 1999 article "Who Invented Hinduism?" also published in CSSH.

I imagine my project to be complementary to his.…
Whereas Lorenzen traces a social construct, i.e. the religion of Hinduism, across varied vocabulary, I trace a single term, i.e., "hindu," across diverse meanings.

This is a long, meandering journey over 2 1/2 millennia. Some highlights --

📢📣 We've got a new paper out from @CSMaP_NYU today in @NatureComms 📢

Russia's foreign influence campaign on Twitter in 2016 caused widespread concern. But who was exposed? How effective was it? 🧵👇

Russia's efforts to intervene with the 2016 election have been widely documented by news media and investigators. But researchers' understanding of exactly how influential these campaigns were has been largely restricted due to data limitations. 2/
To investigate the relationship between Russia’s Twitter campaign and political attitudes, we paired results from a 3-wave longitudinal survey of US respondents (conducted by YouGov) with a collection of respondents' Twitter timelines during the 8 months prior to Election Day. 3/

2022 was the year mutant KRAS in #PancreaticCancer truly became actionable.

Direct KRAS targeting & #PancreaticCancer, a 🧵:

G12C is ~1.6% of KRAS alleles in pancreatic cancer, & monotherapy responses in pre-treated patients are mostly transient stable disease, but a step forward.
In addition to Sotorasib, Adagrasib is the other KRAS G12C inhibitor with demonstrated Phase 1 activity in #PancreaticCancer (2022 data).
The expansion cohort in pancreatic cancer will start accrual at @MDAndersonNews soon.…

I know it’s a different Twitter this year, but for those who are still around, I have made a short ‘2022 year in review’ 🧵to keep the tradition going. Only #OpenAccess 🔓 papers published in 2022. From a forthcoming Editorial to the start of the year, it’s been a busy 2022! 1/10

Seit fast 10 Jahren (ab Januar 2012) befasse ich mich hauptberuflich mit der Beantragung von Drittmitteln für Forschungsprojekte. Im nachfolgenden #Thread stelle ich 10 praktische und kostenfreie Online-Tools vor, die man gut für solche Anträge nutzen kann. #IchBinHanna #FORTRAMA
1) Zunächst mal muss man ja das passende Förderprogramm finden. Für Bekanntmachungen der EU, des Bundes und der Länder eignet sich insbesondere der Blick in die allumfassende Förderdatenbank des @BMWK, die einen enorm praktischen Suchassistenten bietet.
2) Wird man hier nicht fündig, hat eventuell eine der vielen 1.000 fördernden Stiftungen in Deutschland das passende Programm im Angebot. Bei @stiftungstweet kann man nach Themenfeldern, sowie auch nach Bundesländern / Kommunen (Regionalförderung) suchen.
