Nanocomposites: synthesis, structure, properties and …

Biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) is widely used as biomaterial for bone regeneration because of its favourable bioactivity and bioresorption property when compared to hydroxyapatite and β-tricalcium phosphate on their own. Two types of BCP are available in orthopedics and dentistry: chemically synthesized BCP (C-BCP) and mechanically mixed BCP (M-BCP). In this study, the mechanical and biological properties of these two types of BCP scaffold were compared. The scaffolds were characterized based on an evaluation of their surface morphology by means of SEM, and their compressive strength was determined in a universal testing machine. The cell proliferation and osteogenic differentiation were measured in a cell-counting assay and alkaline phosphatase activity test. Compared to the M-BCP scaffold, the C-BCP scaffold showed enhanced compressive strength owing to the dense surface of struts. However, the C-BCP and M-BCP scaffolds were shown to be similar with regard to biological properties. This study concluded that the method applied to fabricate BCP nanoparticles influenced their size, the smaller size particles resulting in good mechanical properties thanks to their dense surface. However, the particle size did not influence the biological properties of the BCP scaffolds.

2011 Impact Factors in Polymer Science - …

Quality of scientific research articles is a widespread preoccupation in academic circles. The most used proxy is based on citation counts, not of the article itself, but of the averages of articles appearing in the same journal during a given time window. This is known as the Journal Impact Factor, which may be objective within its own definition, but utterly lacks objectivity with regard to scientific quality of individual articles. Only some technical qualities of articles can be assessed at the time of their publication, and, significantly, their openness, the degree to which the research results they describe can be immediately and universally shared.

The use of bibliometric indicators in science evaluation is a ubiquitous practice, despite the fact that there is no unequivocal relationship between citations and scientific quality, impact or merit. A recent study showed that the indiscriminate use of these indicators may hinder the publication of innovative research results, delaying the development of science.

Natural products in synthesis and ..

The determinesthe average influence of a journal's articles over the first fiveyears after publication. It is calculated by multiplyingthe Eigenfactor score by 0.01 and dividing by thenumber of articles in the journal, normalized as a fraction of allarticles in all publications. This measure is roughly analogousto the 5-year journal impact factor in that it is a ratio ofa journal's citation influence to the size of the journal'sarticle contribution over a period of five years.
