Tools for mapping multi-scale settlement patterns of building footprints: An introduction to the R package footJochem, W. C., & Tatem, A. J. - 2021 - PLOS ONE, 16(2), e0247535
Spatial datasets of building footprint polygons are becoming more widely available and accessible for many areas in the world. These datasets are important inputs for a range of different analyses, such as understanding the development of cities, identifying areas at risk of disasters, and mapping the distribution of populations. The growth of high spatial resolution imagery and computing power is enabling automated procedures to extract and map building footprints for whole countries. These...
Somalia is a federal republic consisting of five federal states as well as the claimed territory of Somaliland. Somalia is further subdivided into thirteen administrative regions (gobollada, singular gobol), and five claimed regions which are in turn subdivided into districts.
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....

Preprinting the COVID-19 pandemicFraser, N., Brierley, L., Dey, G., … Coates, J. A. - 2021 - BioRxiv, 2020.05.22.111294
The world continues to face a life-threatening viral pandemic. The virus underlying the COVID-19 disease, SARS-CoV-2, has caused over 98 million confirmed cases and 2.2 million deaths since January 2020. Although the most recent respiratory viral pandemic swept the globe only a decade ago, the way science operates and responds to current events has experienced a paradigm shift in the interim. The scientific community has responded rapidly to the COVID-19 pandemic, releasing over 125,000...

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,...
Large-scale comparison of bibliographic data sources: Scopus, Web of Science, Dimensions, Crossref, and Microsoft AcademicVisser, M., van Eck, N. J., & Waltman, L. - 2021 - ArXiv:2005.10732 [Cs]
We present a large-scale comparison of five multidisciplinary bibliographic data sources: Scopus, Web of Science, Dimensions, Crossref, and Microsoft Academic. The comparison considers scientific documents from the period 2008-2017 covered by these data sources. Scopus is compared in a pairwise manner with each of the other data sources. We first analyze differences between the data sources in the coverage of documents, focusing for instance on differences over time, differences per document...

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...
