Meta-Research: COVID-19 research risks ignoring important host genes due to pre-established research patterns
Thomas Stoeger, Luís A Nunes Amaral
An analysis of 10,395 research publications about COVID-19 that mention at least one human gene reveals that many genes implicated in SARS-CoV-2 infection by genome-wide studies remain unstudied.
Mental Health in Academia: Shedding light on those who provide support
An eLife survey explores the experiences of those in the research community who support colleagues struggling with their mental health.

Meta-Research: Task specialization across research careers
Nicolas Robinson-Garcia et al.
An analysis of author contribution statements in a large number of published papers reveals biases in the career trajectories of scientists.
Research Culture: Virtual conferences raise standards for accessibility and interactions
Virtual conferences benefit the scientific community by increasing the number and diversity of attendees compared to in-person conferences, and by being less time consuming, more economic and environmentally friendly.
Meta-Research: Evaluating the impact of open access policies on research institutions
Chun-Kai (Karl) Huang et al.
A longitudinal study of open access levels at 1,207 research institutions worldwide reveals high performing institutions in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Meta-Research: Questionable research practices may have little effect on replicability
Rolf Ulrich, Jeff Miller
Although questionable research practices inflate false positive rates, they have little effect on replicability because they also increase power.
Research Culture: Why scientific societies should involve more early-career researchers
Adriana Bankston et al.
Appointing early-career researchers to positions of influence within scientific societies would be mutually beneficial for both.
Living Science: Theoretical musings
The best theory papers help experimentalists to identify which of their results might be general and to plan a path through the maze of all possible future experiments.
Science Forum: Imaging methods are vastly underreported in biomedical research
Guillermo Marqués et al.
The poor reporting of imaging methods in the scientific literature is hindering the evaluation and replication of biomedical research.
