These options are collectively known as “carbon dioxide removal” (CDR) or “negative emissions” technologies (NETs). Indeed, the vast majority of the scenarios in integrated assessment models that hold temperatures to below 2°C contemplate large-scale deployment of such... [Read more]

The scaling relationship between citation-based performance and co-authorship patterns in natural sciences G.A. Ronda-Pupo and J.S. Katz The aim of this paper is to extend our knowledge about the power-law relationship between citation-based performance and co-authorship patterns in papers in the natural sciences. We analyzed 829,924 articles that received 16,490,346 citations. The number of articles published through co-authorship accounts for 89%. The citation-based performance and co-authorship patterns exhibit a power-law... [Read more]

Dear Friends,   As many of you know, Amos and I have been working on building a framework that would allow us to think about innovation policies that both maximize growth AND have positive impacts on inequality.

As our real aim is to move this debate forward and make it center stage, we view this as a very first step and would LOVE to have feedback and see others taken this issue forward beyond our meagre capabilities.
