Presents an innovation ecosystem assessment for the State of Gujarat, India.
Technology options for engaging respondents in self-administered questionnaires and remote interviewing
Serves as a starting point for researchers considering technological options for conducting self-administered questionnaires or remote interviews to reduce costs while continuing to engage respondents without sacrificing quality.
Demonstrates growth-curve plotting techniques using the R package longCatEDA to create our illustrations.
Presents details for designing address-based sampling studies that incorporate the check for housing units missed (CHUM), appropriately incorporating missed units into area probability samples, and training field personnel to implement the CHUM.
Discusses considerations in using big data for a data revolution for sustainable development in developing countries.
Evaluates how one research institute has responded to the challenge of handling engineered nanomaterials in a responsible manner.
Summarizes current evidence and identify gaps in research on urban Indian women’s sanitation-related needs and constraints.
Addresses a scenario that uses synthetic genotype case-control data that is influenced by environmental factors in a genome-wide association study (GWAS) context.
Describes an innovative method that applies the well-proven checksum methodology to verify the correctness of the data migration outcome.
Examines the nature and potential causes of inequity in Egypt's education finance and puts forth a way in which funds could be transferred using an equity-based funding formula that “holds harmless” those muderiyat that would lose absolute amounts of money under a more equitable distribution scheme.
Discusses the technologies and methods used in our Android database encryption/ decryption implementation and their potential scalability to broader applications.
Builds upon a literature review and stakeholder interviews in India on urban sanitation to examine the public policy landscape for sanitation innovation in the country.
Discusses a model coupling approach in which models run as separate executable processes and store data in a database for later retrieval by other models.
We review the theory behind the WTADJX procedure incorporated into the 2012 release of SUDAAN 11® and discuss two potential uses.
Incorporating neuroscience principles and techniques (such as fMRI) into research on the prevention of substance misuse and antisocial behavior may spur advances and innovations in this area.
Outlines five criteria that need to be considered when evaluating a data migration tool.
Results of this survey provide insight into individual and household energy consumption behavior, which has implications for future policy and intervention.
Describes the history and translational implications of an emerging public health problem, the abuse of synthetic cannabinoids, especially how legitimate research findings “hijacked” for illegitimate purposes can present health threats.
Finds that optimal mattress firmness varies among individuals and is reflected, at least to a degree, by overnight motion.
Reveals shortcomings of the traditional database normalization methods with respect to the prevention of common data anomalies, and offers practitioners useful techniques for improving data quality.
Discusses three established software engineering practices—the iterative software development process, object-oriented methodology, and unified modeling language—and the applicability of these practices to computational model development.
Finds that mattress firmness has statistically significant effects on both sleep and daytime functioning and that individuals varied widely in the mattress that optimized their sleep.
Reviews methods to synthesize data on group quarters residents to match US Census Bureau data.
Suggests that interviewer appearance may have a biasing effect on reports in virtual-world surveys—and perhaps in real-world surveys.
Describes the IT infrastructure and health information exchange system software developed for the International Consortium for Applied Radiation Research project.
