Hernández-Borges, Angel A.; Macías-Cervi, P.; Gaspar-Guardado MA; Torres-Álvarez de Arcaya, ML; Ruiz-Rabaza, A.; Ormazábal-Ramos, C. (1999). "Assessing the relative quality of anesthesiology and critical care medicine Internet mailing lists." [Artículo]. Anesthesia & Analgesia, 1999, 89(2):520.

Materias:  Ciberinformetría 
Resumen:

"We studied the relative quality of a subset of anesthesiology and critical care medicine Internet mailing lists regarding the publishing capacity of their members to compare them with the major journals and conferences regarding these specialties. Using systematic searches on MEDLINE and according to the Science Citation Index 1995, we investigated the impact factor of mailing list subscribers, of the first authors of the selected articles, and of the first authors of published abstracts from conferences. We studied six mailing lists, seven journals, and four conferences. Journals and conferences showed a higher percentage of published authors and higher average impact factor among their first authors than the mailing lists did per subscriber. However, when only the subset of publishing authors from the three media was considered, no significant differences were found. We conclude that qualified authors may be found among the subscribers of Internet medical mailing lists on anesthesiology and critical care medicine. These professional discussion groups could complement peer-reviewed publications and conferences in professional information exchange and continuing medical education. Implications: Internet publishing is not governed by rules that assure certain basic quality standards. Methods for assessing these standards are needed. We compared discussion groups with medical journals and conferences on anesthesiology and critical care medicine by calculating the impact factor of their members and first authors, respectively. Our study shows that qualified authors may be found in all three media."

Resumen:

"Las listas de discusión a través de ordenadores, como aquellas que tienen lugar en el grupo de noticias USENET, superficialmente son análogas a otras listas, aunque un analisis más detallado muestra diferencias significativas. Los grupos de USENET han sido creados por los usuarios, y ello implica fundamentalmente una manera diferente de dialogo. Estas diferencias se pueden explicar de manera parcial por la naturaleza asincrona de la comunicación electrónica, pero también entran en juego otros factores como es la escala universal del usuario multimedia."

Resumen:

"Las listas de distribución son ampliamente empleadas por los profesionales españoles de la información. Se realiza un estudio descriptivo de los principales foros de debate sobre información alojados en el servidor de listas de la RedIRIS, indicando sus ámbitos temáticos, sus administradores, el número de suscriptores y su procedencia geográfica, entre otras informaciones. El estudio se centra en la tipología de los mensajes enviados a las listas, ofreciendo datos acerca de sus contenidos. Del análisis de la temática se desprende que la mayor parte de los mensajes sirven para informar de aspectos de interés profesional. Otro bloque importante de mensajes está formado por aquellos que solicitan cualquier tipo de información profesional. También existen otros contenidos de menor frecuencia: informaciones bibliográficas, oferta de duplicados, etc."

Resumen:

"The changes of the scientific system during the last couple of years bring about new problems for scientific communication. Whereas scientific manpower grew continuously during the former decades, it now faces serious restrictions that force to use the limited financial resources efficiently (Price, 1963, Ziman, 1994). The increasing scientific output (papers, articles) leads in some research areas to enormous time lags for the publication of new results. Because of the restricted funds of libraries which already have problems with the existing number of journals, a general solution of this problem through the foundation of new journals is impossible (Felt et al., 1995; Stix, 1994). As a result informal scientific communication becomes increasingly important for scientists to keep pace with the scientific progress. Traditionally a large part of informal communication within a research field is mediated by an 'invisible college'. This is a small group of researchers that regularly exchange information about the newest progress on the 'research front' (Crane, 1972, Lievrouw, 1990). These groups have been found in a large variety of different disciplines within the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities (e.g. Price & Beaver, 1966, Crane, 1969, 1972, Zaltman, 1974, Weedman, 1993). But as a result of its limited size and restricted access opportunities this traditional means of informal communication gives rise to problems that have become more serious. Simply because of the larger number of scientists more peripheral scientists face these access problems, and due to the increasing publication time lags these problems are even more important."

Resumen:

"Objective. To analyze quantitative aspects and the relative quality of various pediatric discussion groups on the Internet and to contrast them with qualitative aspects of a selected number of pediatric journals. Material and Methods. An extensive number of mailing lists on the Internet of interest to pediatricians was compiled. Twelve of them concerned with pediatric specialties were selected. Six representative journals of pediatric specialties were also analyzed and compared with the corresponding mailing lists. From the list of subscribers we studied the potential quality of each mailing list. The postings sent by each member to the on-line discussions were also analyzed. As an estimate of the standing as author of each list member as well as of each first author of the selected journals, we calculated several indexes of quality using the 1995 Medline database and the impact factors of the biomedical journals reported by the 1994 Science Citation Index. Results. The most popular lists were NICU-NET and PICU, both having more than 1100 subscribers. PEDPATH and PEDIHEART had the highest percentage of subscribers who were published authors, and their papers also yielded the highest impact factors. The most active lists were NICU-NET and PICU. The most participative ones were CHILD-NEURO and PED-LUNG. CHILD-NEURO had the highest percentage of authors among the participants. PEDPATH and CHILD-NEURO had the authors with the highest impact factors among the people who participated in the discussions. These latter two lists also showed the highest impact factor per posting. Those which had the highest yield (highest activity with highest quality per posting) were CHILD-NEURO and PEDIHEART. The average impact factor per first author of the analyzed journals was always higher than the average impact factor per participant of the lists. Conclusions. The electronic-mail discussion groups on the Internet are new nonacademic forums in which knowledge and experience in pediatrics can be shared. They cannot replace but they complement other more academic sources such as medical journals."
