 confirmatory_factor_analysis_orange  confirmatory_factor_Analysis WORKSHOP
Topic: Confirmatory Factor Analysis
Date: Tuesday, February 20
Time:  10:00am –12 Noon
Location:  Brown Science & Engineering Library in Clark Hall, room 133 (#11 on map)
Description: 
When we perform an Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), we’re not sure how many factors exist (if they exist at all) or what the factors represent. But when we hypothesize the existence of a certain number factors and how they manifest themselves through observable variables, we turn to Confirmatory Factor Analysis, or CFA, to test our hypothesis. In this workshop we introduce the basics of performing a CFA using the R statistical programming environment. Using the laavan and semPlot packages, we cover how to specify CFA models, how to interpret the output, how to evaluate fit, and how to create path diagrams summarizing our results. Prerequisites: Basic understanding of Exploratory Factor Analysis. Might also be helpful to know how to open a R script in RStudio and submit R code, though we’ll demonstrate that in the workshop.

impactfactor3sourcesLOCATING JOURNAL IMPACT FACTORS
As a researcher, you will be encouraged to submit your manuscripts to the top journals.   To determine what constitutes a top journal, many turn to a journal’s impact factor. The impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. Below are resources you can use to find impact factors for journals. If you have questions, please contact your Curry librarian, Kay Buchanan.

Journal Citation Reports
Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is produced by the publisher, Thomson Reuter who also produces the Web of Science database. JCR provides impact factors for journals included in Web of Science.  JCR results also give Eigenfactor scores and Article Influence scores 

SCImago Journal & Country Rank
SCImago Journal and Country Rank (SJR)  includes the journals   in the Scopus® database by Elsevier.  Scopus covers more journals and more fields of study (think education) than Journal Citation Reports.  You can search for a given journal title and you can browse by category such as Education, Speech and Hearing, Sport Sciences, and Clinical Psychology by using the pull down Subject Category menu.

Google Scholar Metrics
Google Scholar (GS) Metrics also ranks journals according to GS algorithms. Additional information can be accessed here. GS impact factors tend to be higher than JCR and SCImago as GS scrapes citations from the web as opposed to the subset of journals used by JCR or the subset used by SCImago.

 

app THE UVA WALKING TOUR OF GROUNDS

102thingpublishersdo WHAT VALUES DO PUBLISHERS PROVIDE?
This week, Kent Anderson posted his list, Focusing on Value — 102 Things Journal Publishers Do. These “things” benefit authors, librarians (love the librarian icon is a smiley face with a halo!), readers,  etc.

Kent Anderson stated, “This update is a reframing and expansion of the list. I’ve changed the motif from the cost perspective (expense, level of difficulty, and duration) to the value perspective (uniqueness, value, importance).”

Making_Research_MatterNEW ONLINE BOOK 
Title:  Making Research Matter Researching for Change in the Theory and Practice of Counselling and Psychotherapy
Editors:   Stephen Goss and Dr. Christine Stevens
Overview: “This volume gathers well-known experts to discuss how researchers can impact a broader audience, by lending their scientific expertise to pressing social issues, current events, and public debates.

However, many researchers today have trouble communicating with non-academic audiences and engaging the broader society. With pointers on talking to the media, testifying as an expert witness, dealing with governmental organizations, working with schools and students, and influencing public policy, this volume helps social scientists forge the vital link between scholarship and social engagement. –publisher

culturally_responsive_strategiesCULTURALLY RESPONSIVE
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) encourages teachers to follow these culturally responsive strategies.

“Culturally responsive practice is often defined as using the experiences and perspectives of children and their families as a tool to support them more effectively … As this approach is child and family centered, it sets the stage for critical relationship building … A core consideration in developmentally appropriate practice and cultural responsiveness is that practitioners learn about each child and family and intentionally adapt and respond to each child’s strengths and needs….” –Charis Lauren Price, Elizabeth A. Steed

   ebscofulltextpdf4newsletterHow to Locate a Journal Article Full Text

Our Library survey results pointed out to us that many of you reported that locating a journal article full text is difficult. I think so too! So I have outlined what I think is the best way to find full text journal articles. — KayBuchanan, Your Curry Librarian

Steps to follow to get a full text journal article.

  1. To determine whether the UVA library has a full text subscription to the journal article you need, use the Find@UVA tool.  Every Curry Library subject guide has a link to Find@UVA near the top of the blue menu bar.

Journal_finder_320_2018

2. Enter the the journal title into the 2nd search box of the Journal Finder page, for example:  Journal of Athletic Training.

journal_finder_newsletter_not320

3. On the next screen, click on the link that features the date of the needed article.  In this example, the article is “Effects of Fatigue and Chronic Ankle Instability on Dynamic Postural Control” by Jay Hertel in the Oct-Dec 2004, Vol. 39 Issue 4 so click on the first link as it provides access to full text articles from this journal from 4/1/2004- 3/31/2012.

journalfinderlinkNot320

4. Next, click on the pdf4newsletterPDF icon  to get the full text. *

journalfinder_pdf_finderarrowpdf

*In some cases, you may need to click on the find@uvato get the full text as the library may get the PDF from another vendor.

journalfinder_pdf_findatarrow

5. If the Library does not provide the full text for the article that you need, Curry students should submit an Interlibrary Loan request and faculty should submit an LEO request. Library staff will obtain a PDF copy of the article and email it to the student or faculty member.

TimeTravelCausality TIME TRAVEL AND CAUSALITY
“A bit of conceptual fun for this Friday post. Having recently read Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland’s The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O., which manipulates quantum physics in the form of witchcraft to provide time travel, combined with a family viewing of Back To The Future, I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to wrap my head around the logic of time travel fiction. Conveniently, the people at Minute Physics have already provided a useful visual methodology for diagramming and understanding the approaches to causality and the paradoxes inherent to the genre. (Note: contains a few spoilers for time travel movies/books).” –David Crotty.  Watch this fun video that diagrams time travel and causality!

 

 

Good_Bad_ConfusingCOPYRIGHT-320
CAN AUTHORS REALLY BE CONFUSED ABOUT COPYRIGHT?
As an author, how would you interpret the following text which is a standard part of any journal contract that Sage publisher has authors sign as part of the traditional publication process (as opposed to Open Access process).

“While copyright remains mine as the author, I hereby authorize SAGE to act on … to enter into this Agreement and to convey the rights granted herein to SAGE …”

Would this allow you to post a copy of the article you wrote on ResearchGate? Your university website?  Elizabeth Gad weighs in on this in a recent column titled, Academics and Copyright Ownership: Ignorant, Confused or Misled?

handbook-on-positive-development-of-minority-children_320ONLINE HANDBOOK
Title: Handbook on Positive Development of Minority Children and Youth 2017 
Editor:  Natasha J. Cabrera
Overview: “ This Handbook presents current research on children and youth in ethnic minority families. It reflects the development currently taking place in the field of social sciences research to highlight the positive adaptation of minority children and youth. It offers a succinct synthesis of where the field is and where it needs to go. It brings together an international group of leading researchers, and, in view of globalization and increased migration and immigration, it addresses what aspects of children and youth growing in ethnic minority families are universal across contexts and what aspects are more context-specific. The Handbook  examines the individual, family, peers, and neighborhood/policy factors that protect children and promote positive adaptation. It examines the factors that support children’s social integration, psychosocial adaptation, and external functioning. Finally, it looks at the mechanisms that explain why social adaptation occurs.” –publisher

 

 

aldermanFeltAprilBakercolor_320 ARTIST IN THE LIBRARY
Artist in the Library—Fine Arts Desk Manager April Baker on Inspiration & Imagination
By April Baker, Fine Arts Library Desk Manager comments on Working on Art.

Inspiration: The movement of light during the day. Small stones in a creek. Sixty-four Crayola crayons in box. Mud pies. Pokeberry juice paint. The space under a Weeping Willow. Dollhouse rooms and people. The window seat at the library. Old dress fabrics in a quilt. An abandoned hornet’s nest. The brilliance of fallen yellow Gingko leaves.

Materials: beeswax, oils, gouache, Prismacolor pencils, felt, found objects.

Process: observation, selection, arrangement, layering, editing, failing, solving, destroying, rebuilding, improving…The Felt Alderman:

Lately, I have been drawn to felt. After the 2016 election, I made a talisman from felt in the shape of a heart. Felt is able to hold nostalgia. You can almost get your fingers around a particular memory and trap it. I was influenced by Wes Anderson’s use of felt his movies Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom. The carefully constructed felt animals and the scout badges were of particular interest. Meanwhile, I was making campaign felt badges and learning a lot from that process. However, it was not until I watched my daughter construct a 1,000-piece Lego model of the US Capitol Building that I realized that I might be able to make an Alderman out of felt. I would simply need a lot of pieces and a system.

To me, Alderman is a place of feeling and possibility. I love Alderman. Walking through the stacks, one feels contained by walls of books, the endless stories and volumes of information, the hum of the human spirit. The book cover illustrations, old journals, notes left behind, and the smell of printed paper: a sensory delight. It has tremendous pull. Alderman will change and transform over the next decade, but it will still draw us there to work, read, converse, gather information and watch the light move across the checkered floors. It will still be ours.

CRC-poster-2017 CURRY RESEARCH CONFERENCE
Are you presenting a poster about your work at the Curry Research Conference? If so, consider uploading your poster to the Library’s institutional repository, LibraOpen. By doing this, you could add a link on your CV, job applications, etc. to provide easy access to your poster. Just FYI, the link provided by Libra is a persistent link so it will always work!

In addition, consider adding the URL to the poster under your name at the top of the poster. Better yet, open an Orcid account, add your poster URL to Orcid, add the citations to your publications to your Orcid account, and then put your Orcid ID at the top of the poster. That way others can go to your Orcid account and view your scholarship and you can promote your research!

Need to learn how to set up an Orcid account? Attend the workshop below or contact your Curry Librarian, Kay Buchanan.

 

orcid-peer-review-unique-number-reviewer-320ORCID WORKSHOPS
Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Time: 11am – 11:30am OR 5:00pm – 5:30pm
Location:  Ruffner Hall, Room 302
Workshop: Introduction to Orcid
Description:  Founded nearly five years ago, ORCID is a nonprofit organization that offers a free 16-digit identifier (“ORCID ID”) to academic authors and other contributors to research and scholarship. When you register for an Orcid account, you can attach your citations to articles, data and other scholarship you produce. This iD number allows researchers to connect themselves with their works and affiliations so their outputs can be correctly attributed to the author(s) and tracked throughout their careers. To date, more than 3.8 million ORCID iDs have been minted, and registration is growing at a rate of approximately 25,000 IDs per week. ORCID has produced a fun and informative video that provides an overview of Orcid services.

In this workshop, you will sign up for you free ORCID account. We will also discuss how ORCIDs are increasingly being required by publishers when submitting papers, and how funders are also starting to use them. Please bring along a laptop.
Instructor: Kay Buchanan
Registration is not required.   I so hope to see doctoral students at this workshop!

Researchers want to publish in high impact journals and Journal Citation Reports is a go-to database to obtain these impact factors.

You can search for a specific journal to obtain its impact factor, you can compare impact factors for journals in a category such as audiology and speech pathology, or you can restrict to Open Access journals. Give Journal Citation Reports a try!

 

researchgate TAKEDOWN NOTICES TO BE ISSUED
“Elsevier and the American Chemical Society (ACS) have filed a lawsuit in Germany against ResearchGate, a popular academic networking site, alleging copyright infringement on a mass scale….

Elsevier, Brill, Wiley and Wolters Kluwer — announced that ResearchGate had rejected the association’s proposal. Instead, the group, which calls itself the “Coalition for Responsible Sharing,” said in a October 5th statement that ResearchGate suggested publishers should send the company formal notices, called “takedown notices,” asking it to remove content that breaches copyright. The five publishers will be sending takedown notices, according to the group. But the coalition also alleges that ResearchGate is illicitly making as many as 7 million copyrighted articles freely available, and that the company’s “business model depends on the distribution of these in-copyright articles to generate traffic to its site, which is then commercialized through the sale of targeted advertising.” –Slashdot

If you have questions about any research articles you have posted to ResearchGate, contact your Curry Librarian, Kay Buchanan at 434-982-2664 or by email, to set up an consultation.

Anyone, anywhere in the world should have free, unhindered access to not just my research, but to the research of every great and inquiring mind across the spectrum of human understanding.” When it first went online, the server crashed as so many people tried to access it! You can read more about it here.

UVA doctoral candidates have the option of making their dissertations Open Access. After they complete their dissertations, doctoral candidates upload them to the UVA repository LIBRA. At that point they can designate them as Open Access immediately or they can embargo them for a set number of years. We hope you choose Open Access so as to make UVA scholarship accessible to all people without charge. If you have copyright concerns that you think may not allow you to select Open Access, please contact your Curry Librarian, Kay Buchanan and she will be happy to consult with you about how you navigate copyright waters.

  authors3500_320 HOW DO YOU CITE 3,500 AUTHORS!
First came the gravitational waves. Then, a burst of gamma radiation. As night fell in Chile, a small telescope had pinpointed the signals in the sky: the first ever neutron star smash-up found with gravitational waves.

Hours after the first signal in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detector in Hanford, Washington, on 17 August, about 70 telescopes and observatories across the planet and in space turned in concert to face the same spot in the constellation Hydra.

“I don’t think it’s out of the question that this is the most observed astronomical event ever.

This October one of the many articles about this event was published and the following article, Multi-messenger Observations of a Binary Neutron Star Merger caught my eye. That got me to wondering how does one cite an article using APA with 3,500 authors! I found the answer in the APA Blog. In it Chelsea Lee wrote, “The world of scholarly publication is not so different from the movies, at least as far as authorship is concerned. Authors are generally listed in order of contribution to the research, but the last author can also be a contributor of distinction, often the principal investigator… The first six authors are listed; all subsequent authors except the last are omitted and replaced with an ellipsis; and then the name of the last author listed in the manuscript is used.
