  • The DOAJ Spring Cleaning 2016 and What Was Removed — Tragic Loss or Good Riddance? 

    Frantsvåg, Jan Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-27)
    In December 2012, DOAJ’s (The Directory of Open Access Journals) parent company, IS4OA, announced they would introduce new criteria for inclusion in DOAJ and that DOAJ would collect vastly more information from journals as part of the accreditation process—journals already included would need to reapply in order to be kept in the registry. My working hypothesis was that the journals removed from ...
  • Few Open Access Journals Are Compliant with Plan S 

    Frantsvåg, Jan Erik; Strømme, Tormod Eismann (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-09)
    Much of the debate on Plan S seems to concentrate on how to make toll-access journals open access, taking for granted that existing open access journals are Plan S-compliant. We suspected this was not so and set out to explore this using Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) metadata. We conclude that a large majority of open access journals are not Plan S-compliant, and that it is small publishers ...
  • Ocean acidification at a coastal CO2 vent induces expression of stress-related transcripts and transposable elements in the sea anemone Anemonia viridis 

    Urbarova, Ilona; Forêt, Sylvain; Dahl, Mikael Per; Emblem, Åse E.; Milazzo, Marco; Hall-Spencer, Jason M.; Johansen, Steinar Daae (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-08)
    Ocean acidification threatens to disrupt interactions between organisms throughout marine ecosystems. The diversity of reef-building organisms decreases as seawater CO2 increases along natural gradients, yet soft-bodied animals, such as sea anemones, are often resilient. We sequenced the polyA-enriched transcriptome of adult sea anemone Anemonia viridis and its dinoflagellate symbiont sampled along ...
  • The effect of trauma and alcohol on the relationship between level of cytokines and depression among patients entering psychiatric treatment 

    Toft, Helge Prytz; Neupane, Sudan Prasad; Bramness, Jørgen Gustav; Tilden, Terje; Wampold, Bruce E.; Lien, Lars (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-10)
    <b>Background</b><br> Depression is associated with immunological responses as reflected by altered levels of circulating cytokines. Alcohol use and trauma may modulate immune activity, and few studies have investigated these factors in depressed patients. We aimed to explore the association between circulating peripheral cytokine levels and degree of depressive symptoms, taking trauma and alcohol ...
  • Receptor activator of nuclear factor kB ligand, osteoprotegerin, and risk of death following a breast cancer diagnosis: results from the EPIC cohort 

    Sarink, Danja; Schock, Helena; Johnson, Theron; Chang-Claude, Jenny; Overvad, Kim; Olsen, Anja; Tjønneland, Anne; Arveux, Patrick; Fournier, Agnès; Kvaskoff, Marina; Boeing, Heiner; Karakatsani, Anna; Trichopoulou, Antonia; La Vecchia, Carlo; Masala, Giovanna; Agnoli, Claudia; Panico, Salvatore; Tumino, Rosario; Sacerdote, Carlotta; van Gils, Carla H.; Peeters, Petra H.M.; Weiderpass, Elisabete; Agudo, Antonio; Rodríguez-Barranco, Miguel; Huerta, José María; Ardanaz, Eva; Gil, Leire; Kaw, Kay Tee; Schmidt, Julie A.; Dossus, Laure; His, Mathilde; Aune, Dagfinn; Riboli, Elio; Kaaks, Rudolf; Fortner, Renée T. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-22)
    <b>Background</b><br> Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (RANK)-signaling is involved in tumor growth and spread in experimental models. Binding of RANK ligand (RANKL) to RANK activates signaling, which is inhibited by osteoprotegerin (OPG). We have previously shown that circulating soluble RANKL (sRANKL) and OPG are associated with breast cancer risk. Here we extend these findings to ...
