Collaborative interdisciplinary astrobiology research: a bibliometric study of the NASA Astrobiology Institute

Aydınoğlu, Arsev Umur
This study aims to undertake a bibliometric investigation of the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) funded research that was published between 2008 and 2012 (by teams of Cooperative Agreement Notice Four and Five). For this purpose, the study creates an inventory of publications co-authored through NAI funding and investigates journal preferences, international and institutional collaboration, and citation behaviors of researchers to reach a better understanding of interdisciplinary and collaborative astrobiology research funded by the NAI. Using the NAI annual reports, 1210 peer-reviewed publications are analyzed. The following conclusions are drawn: (1) NAI researchers prefer publishing in high-impact multidisciplinary journals. (2) Astronomy and astrophysics are the most preferred categories to publish based on Web of Science subject categories. (3) NAI is indeed a virtual institution; researchers collaborate with other researchers outside their organization and in some cases outside the U.S. (4) There are prominent scholars in the NAI co-author network but none of them dominates astrobiology.


Perception-Based Navigation for Mobile Robots
Kawamura, Kazuhiko; Wilkes, D Mitch; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Keskinpala, Türker (Springer Science, 2002-01-01)
In March 2002, the Naval Research Laboratory brought together leading researchers and government sponsors for a three-day workshop in Washington, D.C. on Multi-Robot Systems. The workshop began with presentations by various government program managers describing application areas and programs with an interest in multi­ robot systems. Government representatives were on hand from the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force, the Army Research Lab, the National Aeronau­ tics and Space Administration, and the De...
Challenges for Sustained Observing and Forecasting Systems in the Mediterranean Sea
Tintore, Joaquin; et. al. (2019-09-13)
The Mediterranean community represented in this paper is the result of more than 30 years of EU and nationally funded coordination, which has led to key contributions in science concepts and operational initiatives. Together with the establishment of operational services, the community has coordinated with universities, research centers, research infrastructures and private companies to implement advanced multi-platform and integrated observing and forecasting systems that facilitate the advancement of oper...
Ulusal fen bilimleri ve matematik eğitimi kongrelerindeki fizik eğitimi çalışmalarının içerik analizi
Kanlı, Uygar; Gülçiçek, Çağlar; Göksu, Volkan; Önder Çelikkanlı, Nuray; Oktay, Özlem; Eraslan, Funda; Eraslan, Funda; Eryılmaz, Ali; Güneş, Bilal (2014-02-01)
Bu çalışma; fizik eğitimindeki araştırma eğilimlerini belirlemek için, 1994-2012 yılları arasında Ulusal Fen Bilimleri ve Matematik Eğitimi Kongrelerinde tam metni basılan fizik eğitimi çalışmalarını içerik analizi yöntemi ile incelemeyi amaçlamaktadır. Bu amaç doğrultusunda; taranan 735 çalışmadan 282 çalışma, yazarların demografik özellikleri (sayısı, cinsiyeti, bağlı olduğu kurum vb.), genel çalışma temaları, çalışılan fizik konuları, araştırma yöntemleri, örnekleme yöntem ve sayıları, veri toplama araçl...
Multidimensional approach to link between trust and health before and after COVID-19: Nationwide investigations based on social capital theory
TOSYALI, AHMET FURKAN; Öner Özkan, Bengi; Harma, Mehmet; Department of Psychology (2022-5)
The current research was part of a larger project, funded by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), examining the link between psychosocial factors and health-related outcomes. A pilot study showed that the items could adequately be used, and bivariate relationships were consistent with the hypotheses. In Study 1, the hypotheses were examined in a representative sample of the Turkish population. Bonding and linking aspects were positively related to SRH; however, bridging asp...
Multiresolution analysis of S&P500 time series
KILIC, Deniz Kenan; Uğur, Ömür (2018-01-01)
Time series analysis is an essential research area for those who are dealing with scientific and engineering problems. The main objective, in general, is to understand the underlying characteristics of selected time series by using the time as well as the frequency domain analysis. Then one can make a prediction for desired system to forecast ahead from the past observations. Time series modeling, frequency domain and some other descriptive statistical data analyses are the primary subjects of this study: i...
