US Clarivate Analytics announces the 'Eugene Garfield Information Sciences Pioneer Award' to honour Dr. Eugene Garfield's legacy to Information Sciences - 20 Mar 2017

Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, has announced the creation of the 'Eugene Garfield Information Sciences Pioneer Award' to honour the legacy of Dr. Eugene Garfield, the visionary founder of the Web of Science and a pioneer of Information Science. This award will be given annually to at least one promising information scientist, selected by a board of prominent scientometricians.

Clarivate Analytics, the home of the Web of Science and Journal Impact Factor, currently supports innovative research by individuals in the scientometric community through a thought leadership program, which gives researchers access to Web of Science data, as well as to scholarships such as the American Society of Information Science & Technology's Outstanding Teacher Award and Dissertation Proposal Award. Both awards were created in the early 1980s by Dr. Garfield. This new award will enable additional researchers to advance the field and build on Dr. Garfield's legacy.

The Scientific & Academic Research business of Clarivate Analytics continues to build on the early work of Dr. Garfield who developed the Science Citation Index, Current Contents and many other indexes in the sciences. By revolutionising data-driven science, Clarivate is the leading provider of citation and innovation data and analytics to research organisations throughout the world.

At least one prize will be given annually for the most innovative research in scientometrics, which can be applied to the field globally. It will be awarded to an early-career researcher (i.e., no more than PhD + 10 years) and based on the application criteria and on the researcher's needs. In addition to the award, Clarivate Analytics will provide the successful applicant with in-kind support and access to Web of Science data.

The online award application will be available starting in April 2017. Until that time, anyone interested should register to be notified when it becomes available, by sending an email to danielle.connelly@clarivate.com.

US Elsevier publishes five new plastics and polymers titles - 20 Mar 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications by Ajay Padsalgikar. The book enables designers of new cardiovascular medical devices to make decisions about the kind of plastics needed to manufacture each device by explaining the property requirements of various applications in this area, including artificial valves, lead insulation, balloons and vascular grafts. Elsevier also announced the publication of four additional plastics and polymers books.

Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications describes which materials can be used for each application, and why each is appropriate, leading to the design of better tools and processes. It allows designers to improve device performance and comply with regulations by selecting the best material for each application.

Dr. Ajay Padsalgikar is a chief scientist at St. Jude Medical, one of world's leading companies in the manufacture of cardiovascular devices. Dr. Padsalgikar has extensive experience in the application of polymers in the manufacture of medical devices in the cardiovascular field. As Chief Scientific Officer at AorTech Biomaterials, he worked with various medical device manufacturers in the cardiovascular space, obtaining a first-hand feel of the devices and the important properties of plastics necessary to fulfil the requirements of the application.

The five new plastics and polymers titles are: Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications by Ajay Padsalgikar; Rheology: Concepts, Methods, and Applications, Third Edition by Alexander Ya, Malkin and Avraam I. Isayev; Databook of Plasticizers, Second Edition by Anna Wypych; Handbook of Plasticizers, Third Edition by George Wypych; and Handbook of Odors in Plastic Materials, Second Edition by George Wypych.

In order to meet content needs in plastics and polymers, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of plastics and polymers engineers and researchers, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.
