Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations

The purpose of the Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) is to encourage authors to develop and publish quality papers that address in a balanced manner all three entities signified in its title: information, information technology (IT), and the organizational context. Other information systems journals commonly focus on either IT or on information, all but excluding the other. In contrast, JIITO gives equal treatment both to IT and information, while conceiving information broadly in terms of knowledge, wisdom, meaning, and data. Information and IT need to be studied in the context of tasks or processes, spanning over appropriate levels of analysis‹individual, group, organizational, interorganizational, community, and so on. JIITO welcomes investigations of organizations of any sort, any industry, and any relevant social domain. JIITO encourages articles that use rich, detailed accounts of information and IT. Any topic and any philosophical perspective that help us to make sense of information and IT in organizations is welcome. Of particular interest are empirical studies that explain how organizations cope, prosper, change, fail with respect to using, managing, designing and adopting information systems. In the conceptual realm, JIITO encourages articles that take a critical look at advent, genesis and and uses of models that have influenced IS research for considerable time.

International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education

The objective of this journal is to publish original, fully peer-reviewed articles on a variety of topics and research methods in both science and mathematics education. The journal welcomes articles that address common issues in mathematics and science education and cross-curricular dimensions more widely.

The Semantic Indexing Project - Creating Tools To Identify the Latent Knowledge Found in Text

Semantic indexing is their name for a family of techniques for searching and organizing large data collections. The goal of semantic indexing is to find patterns in unstructured data (documents without descriptors such as keywords or special tags) and use those patterns to offer more effective search and categorization services. During the past four years, a team of linguists and computer scientists at NITLE and Middlebury College has developed a prototype Semantic Engine. This prototype was designed to address the universal problem of accessing and organizing large amounts of unstructured digital text. Using mathematical algorithms to index the latent semantic content of documents, the prototype engine has been demonstrated to drastically reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive and time-consuming metadata tagging, and to produce results superior to keyword searches in limited test domains. The Semantic Engine is at the center of our research and development mission. This has been added to the semantic web research section of Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

The Wiki and the Blog: Toward a Complex Adaptive Intelligence Community by D. Calvin Andrus

US policy-makers, war-fighters, and law-enforcers now operate in a real-time worldwide decision and implementation environment. The rapidly changing circumstances in which they operate take on lives of their own, which are difficult or impossible to anticipate or predict. The only way to meet the continuously unpredictable challenges ahead of us is to match them with continuously unpredictable changes of our own. We must transform the Intelligence Community into a community that dynamically reinvents itself by continuously learning and adapting as the national security environment changes. Recent theoretical developments in the philosophy of science that matured in the 1990's, collectively known as Complexity Theory, suggest changes the community should make to meet this challenge. These changes include allowing our officers more autonomy in the context of improved tradecraft and information sharing. In addition, several new technologies will facilitate this transformation. Two examples are self-organizing knowledge websites, known as Wikis, and information sharing websites known as Blogs. Allowing Intelligence Officers and our non-intelligence National Security colleagues access to these technologies on SIPRNet, will provide a critical mass to begin the transformation.

International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being

International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being acknowledges the international and interdisciplinary nature of health-related issues. It intends to provide a meeting-point for studies using rigorous qualitative methodology of significance for issues related to human health and well-being. The aim of the International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being is to support and to shape the emerging field of qualitative studies and to encourage a better understanding of all aspects of human health and well-being. The journal emphasizes empirical research and theory in basic and applied health care, especially with an international focus, but will also welcome local and national contributions. At least one article out of the six to eight in each issue will be reserved for philosophical issues related to qualitative research in the health area. QHW welcomes works of research which meet high academic and ethical standards and encourages qualitative research on health and well-being from a wide range of professional groups. The proposed basic criteria for acceptability of a research paper in QHW include that the paper is written in a clear and concise manner, that findings are discussed in relation to existing literature and that the authors have used criteria appropriate for qualitative research. Phenomenological studies should be meaning oriented. It is essential that the researcher declares which form of phenomenological approach is being practised. Data collection and data analysis should be appropriate for the chosen approach. Attention should be paid to identification of a ³general structure² of the phenomenon, which connects the identified meanings, or a main interpretation that connects all interpretations, rather than presentation of themes or categories. Ethnographic studies, intended to describe and interpret a culture or a social group, should be carried out over an extended period of time and include observations and/or interviews. In case studies multiple sources of data are essential in order to conduct in-depth analysis of single or multiple cases. Considering rigour and using criteria appropriate for qualitative research, description of case, context and themes and development of issues will be the result. For grounded theory studies, concurrent data collection and analysis is essential rather than all data being collected and analysed afterwards. It is also important that the researcher have used the fundamental techniques such as theoretical sampling, theoretical saturation, hierarchical coding processes and identification of a core category.

MusicBrainz is a project of the US non-profit MetaBrainz Foundation. See MusicBrainzHistory for a brief description how the MusicBrainz service has grown into its current size. MusicBrainz is a user-maintained community music metadatabase. Music metadata is information such as the artist name, the release title, and the list of tracks that appear on a release. MusicBrainz collects this information about recordings and makes it available to the public. The web site is the interface which allows the creation and maintenance of the data. All of the data in MusicBrainz is user contributed and user maintained. This means that if you spot a mistake in the database, you should take the initiative to create yourself a MusicBrainz account (for free, of course!) and edit the data. MusicBrainz will never share your personal information with anyone and we will not spam you with anything. We believe strongly in the privacy of our users and since they are our lifeblood we would be stupid to disrespect our contributors. Please contribute your knowledge about music and MusicBrainz will share your knowledge with others, and in time MusicBrainz can become the most powerful and comprehensive music service in existence. In return for your hard work, MusicBrainz makes the data that users have contributed to available for download to the public. Some portions of the data are placed into the Public Domain and some portions are covered by a CreativeCommons license. Please take a look at our Server / Database product pages.

The journal covers research in all areas of chemistry, including analytical, biological, environmental, industrial, inorganic, organic, physical and theoretical chemistry as well as materials science, and is divided into over fifty subject areas. Chemistry Central Journal offers scientists the opportunity to publish their research rapidly in an open access medium that is freely available online to researchers worldwide. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to rigorous peer review. Published material may include electronic supplementary material, such as animations (e.g., MOL files) or data (e.g. raw spectra) that can be downloaded for a reader's use. Chemistry Central Journal aims to work closely with operators of open data repositories such as PubChem. Chemistry Central Journal considers the following types of articles:

* Research: primary research from any area of chemistry, or chemistry related/interdisciplinary area.
* Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction.
* Database articles: describe a new database or a substantial improvement of an existing database (for example by an expansion of data to broaden the range of users, or by a major increase in functionality).
* Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method. The article must describe a demonstrable advance on what is currently available. The method needs to have been well tested and ideally, but not necessarily, used in a way that proves its value.
* Software articles: describe the source code for software applications, tools or algorithm implementations. Typically, an archive of the source code of the current version of the software should be included with the submitted manuscript as a supplementary file.

Zotero - The Next-Generation Research Tool

Zotero is a free, easy-to-use research tool that helps you gather and organize resources (whether bibliography or the full text of articles), and then lets you to annotate, organize, and share the results of your research. It includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote)—the ability to store full reference information in author, title, and publication fields and to export that as formatted references—and the best parts of modern software such as or iTunes, like the ability to sort, tag, and search in advanced ways. Using its unique ability to sense when you are viewing a book, article, or other resource on the web, Zotero will—on many major research sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for you in the correct fields. The 1.0 beta release of Zotero already provides advanced functionality for gathering, organizing, and scanning your research, as well as basic import/export capability and bibliographic formatting tools. Automatic updates to the software in the fall and winter of 2006-2007 will provide many more citation styles, the ability for Zotero to recognize even more online resources, even better support for importing and exporting entire collections, and integration with Microsoft Word and other word processors. And coming soon, Zotero users will be able to share their collections with other users, collaborate on research projects using Zotero, send their collections to other free web services (such as mapping or translation sites), and receive recommendations and feeds of new resources that might be of interest. In short, over the next year Zotero will expand from an already helpful browser extension into a full-fledged tool for digital research and communications.

Journal of Biomaterials Science, Polymer Edition

The Journal of Biomaterials Science, Polymer Edition publishes fundamental research on the proprties of polymeric biomaterials and the mechanisms of interaction between such biomaterials and living organisms, with attention being focused at the molecular and cellular levels. The journal publishes original research papers, short communications and review articles. The publication of this research is expected to contribute significantly to future progress in the practical applications of these substances. Biomaterials may be defined as materials which are used in contact with tissue, blood, cells, proteins and any other living substance. The Journal of Biomaterials Science, Polymer Edition, will deal with polymers, synthetic and natural, as the most versatile biomaterials, having wide-ranging applications in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and biological fields. For example, they may form the basis for tissue engineering and the development of artificial organs and non-thrombogenic materials, devices and systems for diagnosis and therapy, cell cultivation substrata, cell-sorters, membranes, adsorbents, biosensors and delivery systems for bioactive agents. The existing journals on biomaterials tend to publish papers which emphasize the applications of the science. The Journal of Biomaterials Science, Polymer Edition, seeks to redress the balance by providing an international forum primarily focused on fundamental biomaterials research.

SEDA - Architecture for Highly-Concurrent Server Applications

SEDA is an acronym for staged event-driven architecture, and decomposes a complex, event-driven application into a set of stages connected by queues. This design avoids the high overhead associated with thread-based concurrency models, and decouples event and thread scheduling from application logic. By performing admission control on each event queue, the service can be well-conditioned to load, preventing resources from being overcommitted when demand exceeds service capacity. SEDA employs dynamic control to automatically tune runtime parameters (such as the scheduling parameters of each stage), as well as to manage load, for example, by performing adaptive load shedding. Decomposing services into a set of stages also enables modularity and code reuse, as well as the development of debugging tools for complex event-driven applications. Their current prototype of a SEDA-based services platform is called Sandstorm. Sandstorm is implemented entirely in Java and uses the NBIO package to provide nonblocking I/O support. Support for the JDK 1.4 java.nio package is included as well. This has been added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

One-Step Portal for On-Line Genealogy

A One-Step Portal for On-Line Genealogy by Stephen P. Morse

In the “old days” genealogical research was done by traveling great distances and then going through dusty archives or using microfilm readers. But the advent of the World Wide Web has changed that. Today much of the data useful to genealogists has been put on websites and can be accessed from the comfort of home. Unfortunately, many of these websites are not easy to use. And those that are don’t always offer all the versatility that is possible. For that reason Steven Morse has created alternate ways of accessing some of these websites. In addition he has developed some of his own databases and programs to facilitate doing genealogical research. These are all collected together under what he calls the One-Step website.

DHS Data Mining Techniques Paper

Survey of DHS Data Mining Activities - Office of Information Technology

Paper Executive Summary:

We surveyed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to identify and describe data mining activities used to support the counterterrorism mission. Data mining and advanced analytics are evolving technologies that assist in the discovery of patterns and relationships from vast quantities of data. Data mining employs techniques from statistics, machine learning, database management, and visualization. These techniques aid the work of analysts, agents, and investigators and provide knowledge in a manner that aids and informs decision-makers.

We identified 12 systems and capabilities that DHS personnel use to perform data mining activities to support DHS’ mission of counterterrorism. Nine systems are operational and three systems are under development. While these data mining activities may perform various processes, we categorized and arranged our descriptions in a way that describes selected data mining processes and tools ranging from basic to advanced analytical tasks. The categories include expert systems, association processes, threat and risk assessment tools, collaboration and visualization processes, and advanced analytics.
