Science publications suffer

(yaledailynews.com): Despite Yale's push to expand the sciences, student and University publications in the field are feeling the bite of the recession.

Clinical and basic science papers do not have to be published in large, high-impact publications to garner attention, and in fact when it comes to specialized areas of medicine such as neurosurgery, publications devoted to the subspecialty produce many citation classics.

Researchers unleash crawlers into Deep Web data

(theaustralian.com): STRUCTURED data on the web presents a number of difficult technical challenges because it is hard to extract, and often disorganised and messy, according to a visiting Google engineer. The range of structured data on the web is vast, including product, financial, public records, scientific and government data.
