Typologie des moteurs et outils de recherche Remarque préalable : Il existe de nombreuses typologies possibles des moteurs de recherche, selon toutes sortes de critères. Chaque moteur relève de plusieurs catégories, les critères sont évidemment étroitement imbriqués et présents simultanément. Et il est donc vain de chercher à dresser une typologie complète et définitive, sur des "objets" aussi mouvants et hybrides que les moteurs de recherche.[1] La typologie proposée ici est donc très limitée, partielle et cherche seulement à faire ressortir quelques grands critères, permettant une exploration et une comparaison cohérente d’un certain nombre d'outils. Nous avons choisi plusieurs critères permettant une approche différenciée des moteurs :

Libera l'informazione online L'informazione obbiettiva e completa è un diritto umano. Più è ampia la conoscenza dei cittadini in una democrazia, più attive e responsabili potranno essere le loro scelte. Solo attraverso un'informazione corretta e trasparente i cittadini saranno ben informati e potranno scegliere e controllare l'operato (e le promesse) dei loro governanti. Tuttavia alcune nazioni vogliono limitare la conoscenza dei cittadini, bloccando l'accesso a determinati tipi di fonti e la divulgazione di informazioni scomode (chi ha promesso un certo provvedimento, chi è stato arrestato, come ha operato un certo funzionario...). Le principali forme di manipolazione e sottrazione dell'informazione sono la censura e la propaganda. La prima si basa sul divieto o l'impedimento di accesso a precise notizie, la seconda sulla diffusione di un pensiero prefabbricato, con il quale indirizzare e condizionare l'opinione pubblica.

Les moteurs de recherche médicaux Inutile de présenter le célèbre moteur de recherche. Rapide et puissant, il est le plus utilisé des moteurs de recherche du web. Son succès repose sur le nombre de pages indexées, sa vitesse de traitement et le système de "page ranking" qui permet une certaine hiérarchie entre la valeur des pages. Google est l'outil de première intention pour une recherche sur une question précise ou si vous connaissez le titre exact du document ou du site web.

Metrics - Features - Scopus - Solutions CiteScore metrics: A family of eight indicators that offer complementary views to analyze the publication influence of serial titles of interest. Derived from the Scopus database — almost twice the size of the next-leading abstract and citation data provider — CiteScore metrics offer a more robust and accurate indication of a serial’s impact. Learn more SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): SCImago Journal Rank is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. Base des équipes de recherche en santé publique L’IReSP a réalisé une base de données recensant les équipes de recherche travaillant dans le domaine de la Santé Publique, tous instituts confondus. Les recherches dans ce domaine sont multidisciplinaires et menées dans des Instituts dispersés, ce qui les rend difficiles à appréhender dans leur globalité, d’où la nécessité de ce recensement. Cette base est accessible en cliquant ici. L’objectif de cette base de données est double : 1) participer à la structuration de cette communauté de recherche en permettant à ses membres de se connaître 2) donner une visibilité à cette communauté de recherche vis-à-vis des décideurs et des financeurs, et contribuer à élaborer une politique scientifique dans ce domaine. Nous avons identifié 368 équipes, correspondant à 342 laboratoire.

L’évaluation, maladie chronique de la recherche scientifique Depuis quelques années, le mot « évaluation » mobilise et agite le monde de la recherche et de l’enseignement supérieur. Selon ce mot d’ordre, il faut Tout évaluer : les enseignants, les professeurs, les chercheurs, les programmes de formation, les Centres de recherche et, bien sûr, les universités. Les indicateurs « d’excellence » et de « qualité » se multiplient sans que l’on sache toujours sur quelles bases ils ont été construits. Pourquoi ces nombreux « indicateurs d’excellence » sont-ils mis au service d’une vision strictement gestionnaire de la production de connaissance ?

How to Make Google Translate Beatbox Not sure if this falls in the category of Easter Egg or clever manipulation, but either way, there go our afternoons: Redditor harrichr has devised a scheme for turning Google Translate into a makeshift beatbox machine. 1) Go to [1] Google Translate2) Set the translator to translate German to German3) Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch4) Click “listen”5) Be amazed :) For the lazy, just click this link and it’ll be done for you. There’s nothing magical about this particular sequence, and there’s tons of room for experimentation: In German, anyway, “pv” and “zk” make complementary breathy sounds and clicks, respectively. Spaces add pauses. No idea why “bsch” makes that parrot-chirpy sound, but there you go.

10 free ways to keep track of changes to any website, without an RSS reader Do you need to know about a new product release the minute it happens? Are you watching Amazon price changes like a hawk?
