Improvement of Quality in Publication of Experimental Thermophysical Property Data: Challenges, Assessment Tools, Global Implementation, and Online Support
Article on the improvement of quality in the publication of experimental thermophysical property data. Abstract: This article describes a 10-year cooperative effort between the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and five major journals in the field of thermophysical and thermochemical properties to improve the quality of published reports of experimental data. The journals are Journal of Chemical and Engineering Data, The Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics, Fluid Phase Equilibria, Thermochimica Acta, and International Journal of Thermophysics. The history of this unique cooperation is outlined, together with an overview of software tools and procedures that have been developed and implemented to aid authors, editors, and reviewers at all stages of the publication process, including experiment planning. Both successes and failures are highlighted. The procedures are now well established and are designed to yield maximum benefit to all stakeholders (authors, editors, reviewers, publishers, readers, data users, etc.) through the establishment of procedures and support tools that efficiently serve the specific interests of those involved. All specially designed tools and procedures are described fully, together with their benefits and examples of application. A key feature of the cooperation is the efficient validation of experimental data after peer review but before acceptance for publication. Nearly 1000 articles per year are considered within the scope of this work, with significant problems identified in roughly one-third of these. Full statistics for the findings are given, and a variety of examples of common problems found are given. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc226878/

Research Impact: We need negative metrics too
This article discusses research impact.

Towards the timely detection of toxicants
Article discussing the timely detection of toxicants. Abstract: We address the problem of enhancing the sensitivity of biosensors to the influence of toxicants, with an entropy method of analysis, denoted as CASSANDRA, recently invented for the specific purpose of studying non-stationary time series. The authors study the specific case where the toxicant is tetrodotoxin. This is a very poisonous substance that yields an abrupt drop of the rate of spike production at t approximately 170 minutes when the concentration of toxicant is 4 nanomoles. The CASSANDRA algorithm reveals the influence of toxicants thirty minutes prior to the drop in rate at a concentration of toxicant equal to 2 nanomoles. We argue that the success of this method of analysis rests on the adoption of a new perspective of complexity, interpreted as a condition intermediate between the dynamic and the thermodynamic state. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc139468/
Metaphoric Analysis of a Shipyard Union Dispute: Theory and Method in the Cultural Analysis of Collective Action
This book chapter discusses the metaphoric analysis of a shipyard union dispute and the theory and method in the cultural analysis of collective action. Rather than treating grievances and political opportunities, given, and exogenous to organized movement groups, cultural analysts of social movements have recently focused on cognitive and linguistic processes by which factors relevant to collective behavior are themselves interpreted collectively. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc78308/

Simultaneous measurement of the average ion-induced electron emission yield and the mean charge for isotachic ions in carbon foils
This article discusses simultaneous measurement of the average ion-induced electron emission yield and the mean charge for isotachic ions in carbon foils. Knowledge of the incident ion's atomic number (Z₁) dependence of ion-induced electron emission yields can be the basis for a general understanding of ion-atom interaction phenomena and, in particular, for the design of Z₁-sensitive detectors that could be useful, for example, in the separation of isobars in accelerator mass spectrometry. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc146596/

Study of Ether-, Alcohol-, or Cyano-Functionalized Ionic Liquids Using Inverse Gas Chromatography
This article discusses the study of ether-, alcohol, or cyano-functionalized ionic liquids using inverse gas chromatography. Abstract: Activity coefficients of 52 organic compounds in four ionic liquids (ILs), 1,3-dimethoxyimidazolium bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)imide, 1-(methylethylether)-3-methylimidazolium bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)imide, 1-ethanol-3-methylimidazolium bis((trifluoromethyl)-sulfonyl)imide, and 1-(3-cyanopropyl)-3-methylimidazolium dicyanamide, were measured using inverse gas chromatography from (312 to 353) K. The retention data were also converted in gas-to-IL partition coefficients and water-to-IL partition coefficients using the corresponding gas-to-water partition coefficients. Both sets of partition coefficients were analyzed using the modified Abraham solvation parameter model. The derived equations correlated the experimental gas-to-IL and water-to-IL partition coefficient data to within (0.09 and 0.14) log units, respectively. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc174718/
Renewal aging and linear response
Paper discussing renewal aging and linear response. Abstract: We study the linear response to an external perturbation of a renewal process, in an aging condition that, with no perturbation, would yield super-diffusion. We use the phenomenological approach to the linear response adopted in earlier work of other groups, and we find that aging may have the effect of annihilating any sign of coherent response to harmonic perturbation. We also derive the linear response using dynamic arguments and we find a coherent response, although with an intensity dying out very slowly. In the case of a step-like perturbation the dynamic arguments yield in the long-time limit a steady signal whose intensity may be significantly smaller than the phenomenological approach prediction. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc174702/

Biocultural conservation in Cape Horn: the Magellanic woodpecker as a charismatic species
This book chapter discusses a research project to promote biocultural conservation in Cape Horn, Chile. In an effort to achieve the goal of transdisciplinary integration, the authors used the strategy of identifying a charismatic species, since doing so serves to motivate people towards biodiversity conservation, to communicate ecological concepts, and to integrate both the ecological and social dimensions of sustainability. This study was developed together with the population of Puerto Williams, a town with 2200 inhabitants located on Navarino Island, and the largest human settlement within the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve (CHBR). digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc97940/

3-Center-4-Electron Bonding in [(silox)2Mo=NtBu]2(μ-Hg) Controls Reactivity while Frontier Orbitals Permit a Dimolybdenum π-Bond Energy Estimate
Article discussing decoherence, wave function collapses, and non-ordinary statistical mechanics. Abstract: We consider a toy model of pointer interacting with a 1/2-spin system, whose $\sigma_{x}$ variable is \emph{measured} by the environment, according to the prescription of decoherence theory. If the environment measuring the variable $\sigma_{x}$ yields ordinary statistical mechanics, the pointer sensitive to the 1/2-spin system undergoes the same, exponential, relaxation regardless of whether real collapses or an entanglement with the environment, mimicking the effect of real collapses, occur. In the case of non-ordinary statistical mechanics the occurrence of real collapses make the pointer still relax exponentially in time, while the equivalent picture in terms of reduced density matrix generates an inverse power law relaxation. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc174684/
