It should be noted that this military campaign was of particular importance for the Russian Orthodox Church, since its goal was to liberate...

METHODOLOGY OF HISTORICAL AND ECONOMIC RESEARCH: A RETROSPECTIVE VIEW

Bogdan Ershov & Igor Ashmarov
This data set represents an analysis of historical and economic methods of production management in modern Russia. The need to generalize the accumulated theoretical and empirical material, to find new approaches to the evaluation of modern production, to study both general and specific laws of the process of transforming the structure of social production is shown. The features of this process in countries with different levels of economic development are studied. Particular attention is paid...

Metadata for a survey investigating motivations for meat-free diets in Sweden

Luisa F. Suárez Rozo & Kimberly Nicholas
The health and environmental impacts of meat-based diets are increasingly recognized as sustainability issues, but the motivations behind behaviour change driving vegetarian diets have generally been studied via a limited set of motivations and are therefore poorly understood. To examine such motivations, we designed a survey measuring 20 different possible motivations, using 77 statements drawn from the existing Food Choice Questionnaire as well as diverse literature on environmental protection, animal welfare, social norms, and pro-environmental...

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
These data files contain raw, anonymized response data, as well as a data codebook, from the author survey conducted in May and June 2015 as a part of the Pay It Forward project. The survey was distributed to approximately 15,000 academics at the University of British Columbia, The Ohio State University, the University of California, Irvine, and the University of California, Davis, and received an overall response rate of 14.1%.

Pay It Forward: Partner Institution Research Expenditures

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
These datasets are subsets of tables from the NCSES's Higher Education Research and Development Survey. Tables are limited to include only U.S. Pay It Forward project partner institutions (Harvard, Ohio State, and the University of California system).

Pay It Forward: APC Payment and Pricing Data

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
These datasets include information about APC prices or payments gathered from various sources and synthesized into two data sets. One dataset maps APC prices to publications by partner institution authors in gold OA journals; the other dataset combines tracked APC payment databases from European countries implementing widespread support for the gold OA model.

Pay It Forward: Journal Cost Modeling Data

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
This dataset contains the raw data behind three strategies that the Pay It Forward project team considered for estimating the cost of publishing an article in a scholarly journal.

Pay It Forward: Partner Institution Publication Volume

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
These datasets include aggregated and summarized data describing the publication output of Pay It Forward project partner institutions, as well as provide some data on the characteristics of journals and sources that project partner authors publish in. Data are aggregated and summarized from Web of Science and Scopus.

Pay It Forward: APC - SNIP regression raw data

University Of California Pay It Forward Project, 2015-16
These data connect Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) to list-price APC for a subset of full OA journals in which authors from partner institutions on the PIF project regularly publish. These data were used for a regression analysis quantifying the relationship between APC pricing and perceived quality of a journal.

Fitting Dynamic Regression Models to Seshat Data - Supplemental Material

Peter Turchin
This article presents a general statistical approach suitable for the analysis of time-resolved (time-series) cross-cultural data. The goal is to test theories about the evolutionary processes that generate cultural change. This approach allows us to investigate the effects of predictor variables (proxying for theory-suggested mechanisms), while controlling for spatial diffusion and autocorrelations due to shared cultural history (known as Galton’s Problem). It also fits autoregressive terms to account for serial correlations in the data and...

Methane emissions from contrasting production regions within Alberta, Canada: Implications under new federal methane regulations

Elizabeth O'Connell, David Risk, Emmaline Atherton, Evelise Bourlon, Chelsea Fougère, Jennifer Baillie & David Lowry
Aggressive reductions of oil and gas sector methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have been proposed in Canada. Few large-scale measurement studies have been conducted to confirm a baseline. This study used a vehicle-based gas monitoring system to measure fugitive and vented gas emissions across Lloydminster (heavy oil), Peace River (heavy oil/bitumen), and Medicine Hat (conventional gas) developments in Alberta, Canada. Four gases (CO2, CH4, H2S, C2H6), and isotopic δ13CCH4 were recorded in real-time at 1...
