Sage’s 10-Year Impact Awards recognize research with long-term influence

2023-05-25
(Press-News.org) For the fourth year, Sage has awarded 10-Year Impact Awards to three research articles that have had a lasting influence over the past decade. The awards are given to the authors of three papers published in Sage Journals in 2012 that have received the most citations in the 10 years since than all other studies published in the same year.  

The three winning papers are: 

“The Nature and Organization of Individual Differences in Executive Functions: Four General Conclusions” by Akira Miyake and Naomi P. Friedman in Current Directions in Psychological Science  

“What We Know and Don’t Know About Corporate Social Responsibility: A Review and Research Agenda” by Herman Aguinis and Ante Glavas in the Journal of Management  

“What Makes Online Content Viral? by Jonah Berger and Katherine L. Milkman in the Journal of Marketing Research 

“Short-term measures of research impact fail to account for the many ways in which scholarship continues to inform research, policy and practice in the years and decades after publication,” said Ziyad Marar, president of global publishing at Sage. “Scholarship in the social and behavioural sciences is frequently undervalued by such metrics, with citations and other measures of impact in these disciplines accruing over longer time spans. As an independent publisher, Sage is free to think beyond traditional impact metrics to promote a broader perspective on research excellence that celebrates the significant and enduring contributions of the social and behavioural sciences.” 

The 10-Year Impact Awards form part of Sage’s work to improve the methods used to measure the impact of research in the social and behavioral sciences (SBS). Marar’s essay “On Measuring Social Science Impact” in Organization Studies discusses the importance of looking beyond citation-based metrics to understand the broad impact of SBS. A series of responses to this essay from scholars in these fields is available to read on Social Science Space.  

More information about Sage’s work in the impact space can be found in the recently published Sage Independence with Impact Report.

CU researchers weave deeper understanding of diverse ancestry and gene expression

2023-05-25
Exploring diverse ancestry is a critical factor in furthering medical research.   A new study published in Nature Genetics from researchers in the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, in partnership with the University of California San Francisco and Stanford University, is the largest of its kind that focuses on ancestry correlations with biomedical traits and the first study to examine the role of genetic variants across diverse ...

Does body contouring increase long-term weight loss after bariatric surgery? New findings

2023-05-25
May 25, 2023 – For patients with massive weight loss after bariatric surgery, subsequent body contouring to remove excess skin is not itself associated with long-term weight loss, reports a study in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer. "In contrast to previous studies, we found that body contouring ...

Epigenetic mechanisms activated by GHK-Cu increase skin collagen density in clinical trial

Epigenetic mechanisms activated by GHK-Cu increase skin collagen density in clinical trial
2023-05-25
Skin loses collagen and elastin and becomes progressively thinner with age leading to wrinkles, so reversing this age-related loss of skin density is the holy grail of anti-aging treatments. One compound capable of doing that is the naturally occurring peptide GHK-Cu (GHK from glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine bound to a copper ion), which affects 31.2% of the human genes by either activating or deactivating them (based on a criterion of a reduction or increment in gene activity of more than 50%), meaning that it works by ...

Scientists use AI to find promising new antibiotic to fight evasive hospital superbug
2023-05-25
Attention editors:  Embargoed by the journal Nature Chemical Biology until Thursday, May 25 at 11 a.m. easter Hamilton, ON, May 25, 2023 – Scientists at McMaster University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have used artificial intelligence to discover a new antibiotic which could be used to fight a deadly, drug-resistant pathogen that strikes vulnerable hospital patients. The process they used could also speed the discovery of other antibiotics to treat many other challenging ...

A metabolic process in cancer cells could unlock a possible treatment for glioblastoma

2023-05-25
A study led by researchers at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has found that targeting a metabolic process in people with a specific genetic mutation could help treat glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. The genetic alteration — a deletion in a gene called CDKN2A — is present in about 60% of people who have glioblastoma. The mutation causes changes in the way lipids are distributed in cancer cells, which in turn makes the cancer cells vulnerable to being destroyed. The ...

Can sugar and fat influence immune cell responses?

Can sugar and fat influence immune cell responses?
2023-05-25
LA JOLLA, CA—A population of unconventional white blood cells has recently captured the attention of immunologists and clinicians alike. Unlike conventional T cells, which circulate throughout the body in our blood, mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells are largely found in tissues where they provide immune protection against a broad range of diseases.  MAIT cells are highly abundant in humans. Although they make up only 2 percent of the lymphocytes in blood, MAIT cells account for 10 to 40 percent of lymphocytes in the liver, and they are common in tissues such as lungs. Still, much about MAIT cell biology and clinical function remains unknown. In ...

County-level maternal vulnerability and preterm birth

2023-05-25
About The Study: The findings of this study using data for 3.6 million births suggest that the Maternal Vulnerability Index (MVI), a novel county-level index designed to quantify maternal vulnerability to adverse health outcomes, was associated with preterm birth even after adjustment for individual-level confounders. The MVI is a useful measure for county-level preterm birth risk that may have policy implications for counties working to lower preterm rates and improve perinatal outcomes.  Authors: Sara C. Handley, M.D., M.S.C.E., Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, is the corresponding author.  To ...

Deep learning for detection and symptom severity assessment of autism spectrum disorder

2023-05-25
About The Study: In this diagnostic study of 45 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and 50 with typical development, a deep learning system trained on videos acquired using a joint attention–eliciting protocol for classifying ASD versus typical development and predicting ASD symptom severity showed high predictive performance. This new artificial intelligence–assisted approach based predictions on participants’ behavioral responses triggered by social cues. The findings suggest that this method may allow digital measurement of joint attention; however, follow-up studies are necessary for further validation.  Authors: Yu ...

Using AI, scientists find a drug that could combat drug-resistant infections

2023-05-25
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- Using an artificial intelligence algorithm, researchers at MIT and McMaster University have identified a new antibiotic that can kill a type of bacteria that is responsible for many drug-resistant infections. If developed for use in patients, the drug could help to combat Acinetobacter baumannii, a species of bacteria that is often found in hospitals and can lead to pneumonia, meningitis, and other serious infections. The microbe is also a leading cause of infections in wounded soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Acinetobacter can survive on hospital doorknobs and equipment ...

Monkey model offers clues for potential widespread HIV cure in people

2023-05-25
PORTLAND, Oregon -- New animal research is helping explain why at least five people have become HIV-free after receiving a stem cell transplant. The study’s insights may bring scientists closer to developing what they hope will become a widespread cure for the virus that causes AIDS, which has infected about 38 million people worldwide. Published in the journal Immunity, the Oregon Health & Science University-led study describes how two nonhuman primates were cured of the monkey form of HIV after receiving a stem cell transplant. ...
