    Meta-Research: International authorship and collaboration across bioRxiv preprints

    Richard J Abdill et al.
    An analysis of 67,885 preprints on bioRxiv finds evidence for disparities in international participation that are similar to the disparities found in conventional journals.
  1. Cutting Edge: Science hackathons for developing interdisciplinary research and collaborations

    Derek Groen, Ben Calderhead
    Science hackathons can help academics, particularly those in the early stage of their careers, to build collaborations and write research proposals.

    Heterogeneous contributions of change in population distribution of body mass index to change in obesity and underweight

    NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC)
    Changes in the prevalence of underweight, total obesity, and severe obesity are largely driven by shifts in the distribution of body mass index.

    A mechanistic model for long-term immunological outcomes in South African HIV-infected children and adults receiving ART

    Eva Liliane Ujeneza et al.
    Long-term immune outcomes vary with age, for both adults and children in HIV-infected populations, e.g. long-term scaled carrying capacity is lower in HIV-infected younger individuals compared to older individuals.
