Carnivore conservation can be improved by recognizing the divergences between scientific and Indigenous and Local Knowledge — ScienceDaily

Divergences between scientific and Indigenous and Local Knowledge can provide a better understanding of why local pastoralists may be willing, or not, to participate in conservation initiatives for carnivores, a study from University of Helsinki suggests. Carnivore conservation has historically been based primarily on scientific knowledge using a wide range of sampling methods, such as […]

Retracted scientific paper persists in new citations, study finds

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A small portion of scientific papers are retracted for research that is in error or fraudulent. But those papers can continue to be cited by other scientists in their work, potentially passing along the misinformation from the retracted articles. Jodi Schneider, a professor of information sciences at the University of Illinois […]

The members of ACNP have been motivated by recent events to strengthen diversity and inclusivity programs within the College and find ways to promote change in our home institutions. Two Annual Meeting Study Groups provided both information and practical action steps for members. The first addressed the challenge of moving beyond diversity and inclusivity as […]

Speed of COVID vaccines did not compromise safety or scientific integrity, Fauci says

Moderna and Pfizer both recently announced that their coronavirus vaccines were around 95% effective in preventing COVID-19. Just one year ago, not a single person knew that the novel coronavirus existed.  This incredible speed in vaccine development is unprecedented. But it did not compromise the safety of the vaccine or the scientific integrity of the […]

American Heart Association Scientific Sessions to feature Brigham breakthroughs

* LDL Cholesterol Lowering Drugs Benefit Older and Younger Patients Equally: Older individuals face an increased incidence of cardiovascular events compared to younger individuals. Paradoxically, however, proven lipid-lowering therapies remain underused in older patients because these individuals have typically comprised small subsets of clinical trials and thus there has been a less persuasive evidence base. […]

Disseminating Scientific Results in the Age of Rapid Communication

Earlier this year as the COVID-19 virus spread around the world, countries responded by imposing lockdown measures one by one. Scientists, seeing the subsequent satellite observations, rushed to publish papers about improved air quality, many of which appeared in short order on preprint servers. These preprints, which are often published in tandem with […]
