Can Wikipedia-like citations on YouTube curb misinformation?
While Google has long been synonymous with search, people are increasingly seeking information directly through video platforms such as YouTube. Videos can be dense with information: text, audio, and image after image. Yet each of these layers presents a potential source of error or deceit. And when people search for videos directly on a site like YouTube, sussing out which videos are credible sources can be tricky.

Research has lost none of its innovative drive
Research has lost none of its innovative drive
A high-profile study made headlines in 2023 stating that the scientific and innovation system is producing less and less completely new knowledge. Researchers at the University of Basel are now refuting this claim, at least for patents: It is based on a measurement error. The discovery of mRNA in the 1960s was groundbreaking.

Parasitic Worms and Liver Disease in Rural Laos
Parasitic Worms and Liver Disease in Rural Laos
A study published yesterday by Swiss TPH and partners in Lao PDR has revealed high rates of Steatotic Liver Disease in a rural region where liver fluke infections and diabetes are prevalent. Surprisingly, an infection with parasitic worms was inversely associated with the prevalence of Steatotic Liver Disease.

Astronomers spot oldest 'dead' galaxy yet observed
Astronomers spot oldest ’dead’ galaxy yet observed
A galaxy that suddenly stopped forming new stars more than 13 billion years ago has been observed by astronomers. Using the James Webb Space Telescope, an international team of astronomers led by the University of Cambridge have spotted a 'dead' galaxy when the universe was just 700 million years old, the oldest such galaxy ever observed.

How do I make my research performance visible?
How do I make my research performance visible?
The visibility of your research is in your own hands. Michaela Zottler from the TU Graz library provides valuable tips. Why is the visibility of research performances important? The impact of research performance is primarily determined by the quality of the research, but also by whether and how research achievements and the researcher are perceived.

Researchers find previously unknown Nazi deportation photos in Dresden
Researchers find previously unknown Nazi deportation photos in Dresden
Unique photos from Wroclaw were taken secretly and at great risk by a persecuted Jew The international research network "#LastSeen. Images of Nazi Deportations" presents previously unknown photos of persecuted Jews during the Nazi era. The original photos, in which Breslau residents can be seen shortly before deportation, were recently found in the archives of the Saxon Association of Jewish Communities in Dresden and jointly researched.

Diamonds and rust help unveil 'impossible' quasi-particles
Diamonds and rust help unveil ’impossible’ quasi-particles
Researchers have discovered magnetic monopoles - isolated magnetic charges - in a material closely related to rust, a result that could be used to power greener and faster computing technologies. If monopoles did exist, and we were able to isolate them, it would be like finding a missing puzzle piece that was assumed to be lost Mete Atatüre Researchers led by the University of Cambridge used a technique known as diamond quantum sensing to observe swirling textures and faint magnetic signals on the surface of hematite, a type of iron oxide.

Eight scientists from the University of Freiburg among most-cited researchers in the world
Eight scientists from the University of Freiburg are among the "Highly Cited Researchers" for 2023. A survey by Clarivate Analytics reveals that they are among the most-frequently cited authors worldwide in their fields of research over the past decade. With nine entries - one scientist is recognised for work in two areas - the University of Freiburg holds fifth place among German universities alongside Bonn and Düsseldorf.

How Organs of Male and Female Mammals Differ
Researchers from Heidelberg and London decode genetic programmes that underlie the development of sex-specific characteristics of mammalian organs The development of sex-specific characteristics is frequently seen in mammals. These characteristics stem from the activation of corresponding genetic programmes that until now have been largely undescribed by the scientific community.

New insights into the genetics of the common octopus
New insights into the genetics of the common octopus
Octopuses are fascinating animals - and serve as important model organisms in neuroscience, cognition research and developmental biology. To gain a deeper understanding of their biology and evolutionary history, validated data on the composition of their genome is needed, which has been lacking until now.

New insights into the genetics of the common octopus: genome at the chromosome level decoded
Scientific milestone provides deeper insights into the evolution and biology of Octopus vulgaris Octopuses are fascinating animals - and serve as important model organisms in neuroscience, cognition research and developmental biology. To gain a deeper understanding of their biology and evolutionary history, validated data on the composition of their genome is needed, which has been lacking until now.

Scientific publishing under strain
Between 2016 and 2022, the research world witnessed 47% growth in the annual number of scientific publications, which climbed from 1.9 million to 2.8 million. In contrast, the number of researchers has hardly budged. This trend could have borne good tidings for science, if it were the result of more researchers disseminating more diverse results.

Researchers to study home based support for deaf infants in South Africa
A research project is to investigate a home-based early intervention programme for deaf infants under the age of 6 in South Africa. This collaborative study between the University of the Witwatersrand's Centre for Deaf Studies and the University of Manchester's Social Research with Deaf People programme will analyse the programme's impact on their development.

A new way to evaluate the impact of medical research
A new way to evaluate the impact of medical research
Evaluating articles and journals using a new "diversity index" could promote a wider range of perspectives and better global health outcomes, researchers say. Scientific journals and research papers are evaluated by a metric known as their "impact factor," which is based on how many times a given paper is cited by other papers.

European cooperation on forest protection
European cooperation on forest protection
The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL is participating in a pan-European project to monitor and evaluate the impact of climate change on forests. The aim is to create a basis for decision-making in practical forest management on a European and regional level. The first calls for grants are now being launched, enabling researchers outside the FORWARDS consortium to contribute to the project's goal.

Analysing the gender gap in scientific production and performance indicators
Studying the "Matilda effect" in communication-related research 7/28/23 A study by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) reveals the existing gender inequality in the exercise of research careers in communication. This work shows the difficulty female researchers currently have in achieving higher levels of visibility and citations.

Researchers highlight flaws in COVID-19 weather studies and call for improved publishing practices
Research that linked the weather with the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic was inaccurate and poorly scrutinised by fellow scientists, suggests a new study. Because most respiratory viral infections, such as flu, have seasonality with peaks in activity in different seasons, many researchers around the world investigated the potential link between COVID-19 and the weather for clues to how the disease spread.

Billions spent on cancer research but only small percentage goes on treatment
Only a small percentage of cancer research funding gets invested into primary treatments, a study by the University of Southampton and Queen's University Belfast has revealed. Results of the Southampton and Queens study showed that treatments such as surgery receives just 1.4 per cent of funding, and radiotherapy only 2.8 per cent, meaning little direct benefit for patients.
