Breaking Down the Book: Literature Review and Practice of Book Digitization Methods [VRA 2023]

Presentation exploring book digitization practices and standards and share how they are implemented by the UNT Digital Projects Lab. With a large number of books flowing into their department, the authors decided to conduct research on the methods of scanning using the equipment and software available to them. This presentation reports on their findings and what factors went into deciding what type of books get scanned where and how. Results include changes to local digitizing standards and clarified workflows based on the types of books to be scanned. It was presented at the 2023 Visual Resources Association Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.

What Makes Children's Responses to Creativity Assessments Difficult to Judge Reliably? (open access)

What Makes Children's Responses to Creativity Assessments Difficult to Judge Reliably?

Article describes how open-ended verbal creativity assessments are commonly administered in psychological research and in educational practice to elementary-aged children. Authors modeled the predictors of inter-rater disagreement in a large (i.e., 387 elementary school students and 10,449 individual item responses) dataset of children's creativity assessment responses.

Mapping hierarchical and heterogeneous micromechanics of a transformative high entropy alloy by nanoindentation and machine learning augmented clustering (open access)

Mapping hierarchical and heterogeneous micromechanics of a transformative high entropy alloy by nanoindentation and machine learning augmented clustering

Article describes how conventional macromechanical tests provide limited insights into complex hierarchical deformation behavior of a transformative high entropy alloy (HEA). In this work, a high throughput microstructure-micromechanical correlative study is presented by combining high-resolution nanoindentation, site-specific microscopy, and Gaussian mixture model (GMM) clustering.

The complexities of proanthocyanidin biosynthesis and its regulation in plants (open access)

The complexities of proanthocyanidin biosynthesis and its regulation in plants

Article describes how proanthocyanidins (PAs) are natural flavan-3-ol polymers that contribute protection to plants under biotic and abiotic stress, benefits to human health, and bitterness and astringency to food products. This review extends the conventional understanding with recent findings that provide new insights to address lingering questions and focus strategies for manipulating PA traits in plants.

The Subantarctic Rayadito (Aphrastura subantarctica), a new bird species on the southernmost islands of the Americas (open access)

The Subantarctic Rayadito (Aphrastura subantarctica), a new bird species on the southernmost islands of the Americas

Article describes a new taxon of terrestrial bird of the genus Aphrastura (rayaditos) inhabiting the Diego Ramírez Archipelago, the southernmost point of the American continent. The authors state that the discovery of this endemic passerine highlights the need to monitor and conserve this still-pristine archipelago devoid of exotic species, which is now protected by the recently created Diego Ramírez Islands-Drake Passage Marine Park.

A content analysis of research on technology use for teaching mathematics to students with disabilities: word networks and topic modeling

Authors of article conduct a content analysis of research on technology use for teaching mathematics to students with disabilities. They applied word networks and structural topic modeling of 488 studies published from 1980 to 2021. Results showed that the words “computer” and “computer-assisted instruction” had the highest degree of centrality in the 1980s and 1990s, and “learning disability” was another central word in the 2000s and 2010s.

Habitat amount or landscape configuration: Emerging HotSpot analysis reveals the importance of habitat amount for a grassland bird in South Dakota

The authors of the article used pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) across South Dakota, USA as a model species to identify environmental factors driving spatiotemporal variation in population productivity. They found that the amount of grassland at a local spatial scale was the primary factor influencing an area being a HotSpot.

Editorial: Superlubricity across the scales

Article talks about how while the idea of frictionless surfaces and the associated implications of vanishing energy losses during mechanical motion have been part of science fiction culture, scientists in the real world work toward realizing this ambitious goal that was once thought to be unattainable. The overarching goal of the research topic titled “Superlubricity Across the Scales” is to provide a snapshot of the latest developments in this rapidly accelerating field of research.

Metacrisis of Meaning: Seeking Nature through Symbolic Metalanguage (open access)

Metacrisis of Meaning: Seeking Nature through Symbolic Metalanguage

This conference paper explores how what we perceive differs from what we believe. The authors bring three perspectives together with the aim of seeking meaning in our relationship with our natural “arena” through symbolic metalanguage:1) comprehending a gestalt approach to perception and narratives as metaphor; 2) gaining perceptual reciprocity to enhance our relationship with nature; 3) overcoming the obstacles of misinterpretation and unreliable narratives of the simulacra. It was presented at the 2022 Association of Philosophy and Literature Conference held May 25-28, 2022.
