The H-index and First-author H-index of Chinese Scholars in LIS

Based on the journals of JCR Social Sciences Edition--INFORMATION SCIENCE & LIBRARY SCIENCE category from 2003 to 2014, the Chinese authors’ 2793 articles in Library and Information Science (LIS) were collected and analyzed on Web of Science (WOS). First, it ranked the first Chinese authors, and selected 76 authors with more than 5 articles as sample authors. Then it collected the sample authors’ articles on WOS, and the h-index and first author h-index were listed and analyzed.

The Three Most Important Factors Every Orientation and Mobility Instructor Needs to Know when Working with Guide Dogs

The author discusses three important factors that need to be considered by Orientation & Mobility (O&M) instructors when working with clients that are guide dog users. These include: that the work of a guide dog can be influenced by the presence of the O&M instructor during training; the significance of straight line travel; and the importance of using such O&M techniques as guiding, directional cues and landmarks.

USE OF AN AUTOMATON MODEL FOR THE DESIGNING OF REAL-TIME INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN THE RAILWAY STATIONS

The author proposes to develop special models that are built based on finite-state machine, Mealy, in order to display information about technological processes at railway stations. The input alphabet of such machines is represented by the real signals (from the floor equipment, the related information systems and the dispatch office personnel). This representation allows one to formalize the software design process of real-time information management systems for these technological processes

The results of the analysis demonstrate that a visible reduction of the estimation error was achieved for the implemented spatiotemporal small-area models, especially when significant spatial and time autocorrelations were observed. These results are even more valuable than those achieved by the means of the Rao-Yu model. In the computations, three author-defined functions were adopted, which not only enabled the

The author has previously described a simple method for 3D proximity sensing based on capacitive sensing (Deguchi, 2020). This method uses inductor–capacitor (LC) resonance in a circuit containing three reactance elements and the electronic circuit in this method is composed of only general-purpose electronic components. This method detects slight changes in the stray capacitance of the sensing
