Life without Covid: the nations that have sidestepped the pandemic so farThe Guardian - 2021, January 6 - The Guardian
A handful of countries – most of them islands, most of them remote – remain coronavirus-free, but life has not remained wholly unchanged
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 In many poor or conflict-affected countries, EA demarcations are incomplete, outdated, or missing.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...
Communicating Scientific Uncertainty in an Age of COVID-19: An Investigation into the Use of Preprints by Digital Media OutletsFleerackers, A., Riedlinger, M., Moorhead, L., … Alperin, J. P. - 2021 - Health Communication, 0(0), 1–13
In this article, we investigate the surge in use of COVID-19-related preprints by media outlets. Journalists are a main source of reliable public health information during crises and, until recently, journalists have been reluctant to cover preprints because of the associated scientific uncertainty. Yet, uploads of COVID-19 preprints and their uptake by online media have outstripped that of preprints about any other topic. Using an innovative approach combining altmetrics methods with...

Identifying the characteristics of effective teacher professional development: a critical reviewSims, S., & Fletcher-Wood, H. - 2021 - School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 32(1), 47–63
Several inﬂuential reviews and two meta-reviews have converged on the position that teacher professional development (PD) is more eﬀective when it is sustained, collaborative, subject speciﬁc, draws on external expertise, has buy-in from teachers, and is practice based. This consensus view has now been incorporated in government policy and oﬃcial guidance in several countries. This paper reassesses the evidence underpinning the consensus, arguing that the reviews on which it is based have...
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...
A Literature Review on Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Teaching and LearningPokhrel, S., & Chhetri, R. - 2021 - Higher Education for the Future, 8(1), 133–141
The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in human history, affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in more than 200 countries. Closures of schools, institutions and other learning spaces have impacted more than 94% of the world’s student population. This has brought far-reaching changes in all aspects of our lives. Social distancing and restrictive movement policies have significantly disturbed traditional educational practices. Reopening of schools after...
Efficacy of Social Networking Sites for Sustainable Education in the Era of COVID-19: A Systematic ReviewCavus, N., Sani, A. S., Haruna, Y., & Lawan, A. A. - 2021 - Sustainability, 13(2), 808
The sudden advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated containment measures require educational institutions of all sizes to adopt eLearning as the only option for sustainable education. Despite the numerous Learning Management Systems, the rapid migration to eLearning posed numerous challenges that negatively affect the effectiveness and sustainability of the educational activities. The current study systematically reviewed recent articles that recognized the value and feasibility of...

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...

COVID-19 and education: restructuring after the pandemicBellini, M. I., Pengel, L., Potena, L., … Group, E. C.-19 W. - 2021 - Transplant International, 34(2), 220–223
COVID-19 challenges to keep a valuable educational offer with lockdown measures and social distancing are reviewed. Scientific Societies had to think of new alternatives to maintain meetings with conversion to a virtual format and development of online resources, rapidly available and broadly accessible. Other in person activities as face-to-face clinics have been substituted by telemedicine; the same happened with surgical training in theatre, given the suspension of most of the operations....
