An "umbrella concept" of learning
Definitions of learning vary widely across disciplines, driven largely by different approaches used to assess its occurrence. These definitions can be better reconciled with each other if each is recognized as coherent with a common conceptualization of learning, while appreciating the practical ...

Animals almost universally avoid threatening stimuli. But avoidance isn't necessarily proof that the animal feels fear, so a group of researchers creeped out a bunch of fruit flies to find out whether they, in their own way, can be afraid.
When you're chasing a pesky fly around the room with your fly-swatting weapon held high, is your winged opponent scared? Can flies feel fear like we do? A team of scientists set out to find the answer.

Yes, the dilemma between negative citations and ignoring is clearly visible here!

I am not sure the list is COMPLETELY useless. Probably  it correlates fairly well with bad OA journals. But in general, if we had proper measures of journal quality (assuming we still need them and care about journals at all), we wouldn't need it.

Elsevier recently released its new article-sharing policy for authors, and it is not good. To their credit, sort of, they've corrected a horrifying problem with their earlier policy -- namely, the ...

I already decided to release all my papers under CC0 on the arXiv from now on.
 The publisher can keep their style/formatting/trademarks, I give my words to the world.
