Specialized Research Datasets in the CiteSeer˟ Digital Library

Date: 2012
Creator: Bhatia, Sumit; Caragea, Cornelia; Chen, Hung-Hsuan; Wu, Jian; Treeratpituk, Pucktada; Wu, Zhaohui et al.
Description: This article discusses specialized research datasets in the CiteSeer˟ digital library. Abstract: We provide an overview of some of the specialized datasets that were created for various projects related to the CiteSeer˟ digital library. These datasets are not those usually available from CiteSeer˟ and awareness of these datasets may further advance state-of-the-art research in academic digital library data management and analysis.

An Observation System to Aid in the Evaluation and Implementation of Early Intervention Programs for Children with Autism

An Observation System to Aid in the Evaluation and Implementation of Early Intervention Programs for Children with Autism

Date: May 2009
Creator: Geving, Megan McGee
Description: Early and intensive behavioral intervention outcome research includes descriptions of intervention variables that may increase treatment success. This study was designed to develop an observation system that incorporates and expands on some of these variables. Measures include the number of interventionist teaching units, types of skills addressed during instruction, consequences programmed by interventionists, and engagement with teaching materials. This system allowed for a view of the differences in teaching behaviors among the participants. It is proposed that this observation system is a start toward standardized intervention measures that can be applied to evaluate varied treatment models. Such standardization can help in ensuring that all children have access to evidence-based services.

Digital Preservation of Newspapers: Findings of the Chronicles in Preservation Project

Date: October 2012
Creator: Skinner, Katherine; Schultz, Matt; Halbert, Martin & Phillips, Mark Edward
Description: In this paper, the authors describe research led by Educopia Institute regarding the preservation needs for digitized and born-digital newspapers. The 'Chronicles in Preservation' project, builds upon previous efforts (e.g. the U.S. National Digital Newspaper Program) to look more broadly at the needs of digital newspapers in all of their diverse and challenging forms. This paper conveys the findings of the first research phase, including substantive survey results regarding digital newspaper curation practices.
