Inferring the Causal Effect of Journals on Citations
Articles in high-impact journals are by definition more highly cited on average. But are they cited more often because the articles are somehow "better"? Or are they cited more often simply because they appeared in a high-impact journal?
ERC Awards over €600 Million to Europe's Top Researchers
How will climate change shape the Earth's surface? What are the long-term health effects of food additives? How can online tools change political advocacy and what does this mean for democracy?

Can A Research Accelerator Solve The Psychology Replication Crisis?
The Psychological Science Accelerator isn't the only project seeking to address the reproducibility problem. But the accelerator is unique in two ways. First, collaborators plan to continue to work on large-scale efforts indefinitely. And second, the accelerator isn't necessarily limited to replication studies, opening it to novel and exploratory work.
Knowledge Sector Takes Major Step Forward in New Approach to Recognising and Rewarding Academics
Academics can excel in many areas, but thus far they have primarily been assessed based on research achievements. From now on, the public knowledge institutions and research funders want to consider academics' knowledge and expertise more broadly in determining career policy and grant requirements.

Proposed Schema Changes - Have Your Say - Crossref
The first version of our metadata input schema (a DTD, to be specific) was created in 1999 to capture basic bibliographic information and facilitate matching DOIs to citations. Over the past 20 years the bibliographic metadata we collect has deepened, and we've expanded our schema to include funding information, license, updates, relations, and other metadata. Our schema isn't as venerable as a MARC record or as comprehensive as JATS, but it's served us well.
