preprint  2020

Tl;DR: SciSight is a novel framework for exploratory search of COVID-19 research that integrates two key capabilities: first, exploring interactions between biomedical facets (e.g., proteins, genes, drugs, diseases, patient characteristics); and second, discovering groups of researchers and how they are co... nnected.

Gender trends in CS authorship

Lucy Lu Wang, Gabriel Stanovsky, Luca Weihs, and Oren Etzioni
CACM  2020

Tl;DR: An analysis of 2.87 million computer science papers reveals that, if current trends continue, parity between the number of male and female authors will not be reached in this century. With optimistic projection models, gender parity is forecast to be reached by 2100 in CS, but projected to be reache... d within two to three decades in the biomedical literature.

Does ArXiv help increase citation counts?

Sergey Feldman, Kyle Lo, and Waleed Ammar
preprint  2018

Tl;DR: We explore the degree to which papers prepublished on arXiv garner more citations, in an attempt to paint a sharper picture of fairness issues related to prepublishing. We observe that papers submitted to arXiv before acceptance have, on average, 65% more citations in the following year compared to... papers submitted after, even after accounting for variables such as venue and author influentialness.
