Perceived benefits of open data are improving but scientists still lack resources, skills, and rewards


By: J. Borycz*, R. Olendorf n, A. Specht*, B. Grant*, K. Crowston*, C. Tenopir*, S. Allard*, N. Rice*, R. Hu*, R. Sandusky*

TL;DR: This paper used two well-known theoretical frameworks, the Theory of Planned Behavior and the Technology Acceptance Model, to analyze three DataONE surveys published in 2011, 2015, and 2020, to identify individual, social, and organizational influences on data-sharing behavior.

Data sharing, management, use, and reuse: Practices and perceptions of scientists worldwide

PLOS ONE, 15(3).

By: C. Tenopir*, N. Rice*, S. Allard*, L. Baird*, J. Borycz*, L. Christian*, B. Grant*, R. Olendorf n, R. Sandusky*

MeSH headings : Adult; Aged; Attitude; Humans; Information Dissemination; Information Storage and Retrieval / methods; Interdisciplinary Studies; Middle Aged; Perception; Research Personnel / psychology; Surveys and Questionnaires; Young Adult
TL;DR: Although attitudes towards data sharing and data use and reuse are mostly positive, practice does not always support data storage, sharing, and future reuse, and assistance through data managers or data librarians is clearly needed. (via Semantic Scholar)

Graphs in Libraries: A Primer

Information Technology and Libraries, 30(4).

By: J. Powell*, D. Alcazar*, M. Hopkins*, T. McMahon*, A. Wu*, L. Collins*, R. Olendorf*

TL;DR: This paper introduces graph theory and explores its real and potential applications in the context of digital libraries, and describes basic concepts inGraph theory and how it has been applied by information retrieval systems such as Google. (via Semantic Scholar)

Saving Second Life: Issues in Archiving a Complex, Multi-User Virtual World

International Journal of Digital Curation, 6(2).

By: J. McDonough & R. Olendorf*

TL;DR: Research by the National Digital Information Infrastructure for Preservation Program (NDIIPP)-funded Preserving Virtual Worlds project is reported on, which examines the issues that arise when attempting to archive regions from Second Life. (via Semantic Scholar)

2010 journal article

Inbreeding Depression and Inbreeding Avoidance in a Natural Population of Guppies (Poecilia reticulata)

Ethology, 116(5), 448–457.

By: A. Johnson*, G. Chappell*, A. Price*, F. Helen Rodd*, R. Olendorf* & K. Hughes*

TL;DR: These results provide substantial insight into mating patterns of a wild guppy population: strong inbreeding depression occurs, and individuals tend to avoid mating with relatives. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

Effectiveness of nest defence in the Acadian Flycatcher Empidonax virescens

Ibis, 142(3), 365–371.

By: R. Olendorf* & S. Robinson

TL;DR: Nest defence can effectively deter nest predators, but may be less effective against brood parasites, and different behavioural components of nest defence may work at different stages of the nest cycle and against different nest predators. (via Semantic Scholar)

Frequency-dependent survival in natural guppy populations

Nature, 441(7093), 633–636.

Cooperative nest defence in red-winged blackbirds: reciprocal altruism, kinship or by-product mutualism?

Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 271(1535), 177–182.

By: R. Olendorf*, T. Getty* & K. Scribner*

author keywords: altruism; cooperation; tit-for-tat; mutualism; red-winged blackbirds; Agelaius phoeniceus
MeSH headings : Animals; Cooperative Behavior; Male; Michigan; Microsatellite Repeats / genetics; Nesting Behavior / physiology; Principal Component Analysis; Selection, Genetic; Songbirds / genetics; Songbirds / physiology
TL;DR: It is found that male red–winged blackbirds cooperate in nest defence primarily as a form of reciprocal altruism, and the study suggests that mechanisms stabilizing cooperation in red-wingedblackbirds may vary among populations. (via Semantic Scholar)

2004 journal article

Male red-winged blackbirds distrust unreliable and sexually attractive neighbours

Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 271(1543), 1033–1038.

By: R. Olendorf*, T. Getty*, K. Scribner* & S. Robinson*

author keywords: cooperation; reciprocity; territoriality; dear-enemy relationship; red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus)
MeSH headings : Aggression / physiology; Analysis of Variance; Animals; Cooperative Behavior; Male; Michigan; Social Behavior; Songbirds / physiology; Territoriality; Trust
TL;DR: It is suggested that red–winged blackbirds use rules that incorporate their neighbour's behaviour and quality in their territorial interactions with one another, which expands the understanding of cooperation for animals and for humans. (via Semantic Scholar)

2004 journal article

Primers for 12 polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci from the guppy (Poecilia reticulata)

Molecular Ecology Notes, 4(4), 668–671.

By: R. Olendorf*, B. Reudi* & K. Hughes*

author keywords: DNA markers; guppy; heterozyogosity; microsatellite; Poecilia reticulata
TL;DR: Allele frequencies differed substantially between populations suggesting divergence, and all the loci were polymorphic although there were considerable differences among loci and populations in allele frequencies. (via Semantic Scholar)
