Following a year of public engagement activities associated with the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Alison Woollard explains why scientists need to communicate with the public.
Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review
Markus Helmer et al.
Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.
Serotonin: Slow motion
Naoshige Uchida, Jeremiah Y Cohen
Optogenetic stimulation of serotonin neurons in the dorsal raphe causes mice to move more slowly without causing any apparent motor deficits or anxiety-like effects.
Addressing the ethical issues raised by synthetic human entities with embryo-like features
John Aach et al.
Guidelines governing research into embryos need to be updated in a way that reflects the moral status of synthetic human entities generated using the methods of synthetic biology.
Human Biology and Medicine
Research: NIH peer review percentile scores are poorly predictive of grant productivity
Ferric C Fang et al.
Peer review scores were poorly predictive of research project success in this large dataset, suggesting that reviewers cannot reliably predict which meritorious applications are most likely to be productive.
Point of View: How scientists can reduce their carbon footprint
Jeremy Nathans, Peter Sterling
Cutting down on long-distance air travel is the best way to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by the scientific community.
Neurogenesis: Give it a REST!
Steven M Pollard, Maria Angeles Marques-Torrejon
Research: The readability of scientific texts is decreasing over time
Pontus Plavén-Sigray et al.
Scientific abstracts have become less readable over the past 130 years, in part because recent texts include more general scientific jargon than older texts.
Physics of Living Systems
Point of View: Are theoretical results ‘Results’?
Raymond E Goldstein
There should be a prominent place for theory within biology papers, both as Results in papers that combine experiment and theory, and as Results in theory papers.
The fibronectin synergy site re-enforces cell adhesion and mediates a crosstalk between integrin classes
Maria Benito-Jardón et al.
The fibronectin synergy site is only required in vivo when forces exceed or αvβ3 integrin levels fall below certain thresholds.
