Large coverage fluctuations in Google Scholar: a case studyMartín-Martín, A., & López-Cózar, E. D. - 2021 - ArXiv:2102.07571 [Cs]
Unlike other academic bibliographic databases, Google Scholar intentionally operates in a way that does not maintain coverage stability: documents that stop being available to Google Scholar's crawlers are removed from the system. This can also affect Google Scholar's citation graph (citation counts can decrease). Furthermore, because Google Scholar is not transparent about its coverage, the only way to directly observe coverage loss is through regular monitorization of Google Scholar data....

Managing Overlap of Primary Studies Results Across Systematic Reviews: Practical Considerations for Authors of Overviews of Reviews [Preprint]Lunny, C., Pieper, D., Thabet, P., & Kanji, S. - 2021 - In Review
Background: In overviews, inclusion of the same primary study in multiple systematic review gives undue weight to this study. Using a study result multiple times in the same analysis overstates its sample size and number of events, falsely leading to greater precision in the analysis. This paper aims to: (a) describe types of overlapping data that arise from the same primary studies reported across multiple reviews, (b) describe methods to identify and explain overlap of primary study data,...

Semi-automatic mapping of pre-census enumeration areas and population sampling framesQader, S., Lefebvre, V., Tatem, A., … Bird, T. - 2021 - Humanities and Social Sciences Communications, 8(1), 1–14
Enumeration Areas (EAs) are the operational geographic units for the collection and dissemination of census data and are often used as a national sampling frame for various types of surveys. In many poor or conflict-affected countries, EA demarcations are incomplete, outdated, or missing. Even for countries that are stable and prosperous, creating and updating EAs is one of the most challenging yet essential tasks in the preparation for a national census. Commonly, EAs are created by...
SWOT Analysis of the Kenya Education CloudGroeneveld, C., Kimenyi, E., & Kaye, T. - 2021 - EdTech Hub
Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Scopus, Dimensions, Web of Science, and OpenCitations’ COCI: a multidisciplinary comparison of coverage via citationsMartín-Martín, A., Thelwall, M., Orduna-Malea, E., & Delgado López-Cózar, E. - 2021 - Scientometrics, 126(1), 871–906
New sources of citation data have recently become available, such as Microsoft Academic, Dimensions, and the OpenCitations Index of CrossRef open DOI-to-DOI citations (COCI). Although these have been compared to the Web of Science Core Collection (WoS), Scopus, or Google Scholar, there is no systematic evidence of their differences across subject categories. In response, this paper investigates 3,073,351 citations found by these six data sources to 2,515 English-language highly-cited...
How does school travel time impact children’s learning outcomes in a developing country?Afoakwah, C., & Koomson, I. - 2021 - Review of Economics of the Household
Nearly 88% of children in sub-Saharan Africa will not be able to read by the time they complete primary school. We explore this phenomenon by using household data from the Ghana Living Standards Survey to examine the link between school travel time and children’s learning outcomes. Using district variations in school density to resolve endogeneity associated with children’s travel time to school and their learning outcomes, we find that more than 90% of children travel on foot to school and...
