Scholarly Paper Recommendation Datasets

Kazunari Sugiyama & Min-Yen Kan
Much of the world's new knowledge today is now largely captured in digital form and archived within a digital library system. However, these trends lead to information overload, where users find an overwhelmingly large number of publications that match their search queries but are largely irrelevant to their latent information needs. We address this problem by providing recommendation results by using latent information about the user's research interests that exists in their publication list (see...

Environmental Identities and Sustainable Development: Using Q-Methodology to Identify Narratives of Sanitation in India

Ching Leong
Good sanitation is crucial to sustainable development because of public health and ecological implications. Despite well-established health benefits and education programmes, a continued preference for open defaecation (“ODâ€) persists in India. We argue that sanitation behaviour should be conceived as being part of a larger environmental identity with implications on policymaking. This is tested in Andhra Pradesh (“APâ€) where despite large investments, latrines have low take-up rates. Our survey of 300 villagers reveals that most...

This paper attempts to clarify the political implications of different types of protest in China via an analysis of responses to a large-scale open-ended online...

Data from: Changes in the Canine Plasma Lipidome after Short- and Long-Term Excess Glucocorticoid Exposure

Nadja S. Sieber-Ruckstuhl, Bo Burla, Susanne Spoerel, Florence Schmid, Claudio Venzin, Amaury Cazenave-Gassiot, Anne K. Bendt, Federico Torta, Markus R. Wenk & Felicitas S. Boretti
Glucocorticoids (GCs) are widely used in veterinary and human medicine. Chromic endogenous or iatrogenic GC overexposure impairs metabolic function and can result in diverse side-effects, including Cushing’s syndrome. This study examines the effects of experimentally induced short-term and long-term GC excess (induced by prednisolone and tetracosactide, respectively) on the plasma lipidome of Beale dogs. Both, long- and short-term GC resulted in significant changes of the plasma lipidome.
