US John Wiley & Sons and The Physiological Society renew publishing partnership - 20 Apr 2017

Publisher John Wiley & Sons and The Physiological Society have announced the renewal of their publishing partnership for a further 10-year term, building on over thirteen years of collaboration. The renewed partnership will ensure the Society's journals, The Journal of Physiology and Experimental Physiology, continue to develop as world leaders of physiological research.

The Journal of Physiology, one of Wiley's most downloaded journals with published papers from over 40 Nobel Laureates, publishes the latest research from across the discipline, with the aim of developing understanding of the principles and mechanisms that govern our bodies. Published since 1878, and ranked as ISI's top-cited physiology journal (over 50,000 citations in 2016) the journal's international editorial board is led by Editor-in-Chief Kim Barrett, Distinguished Professor of Medicine at UC San Diego, USA.

Experimental Physiology, edited by Professor Mike Tipton of University of Portsmouth, UK, publishes research that provides novel insights into homeostatic and adaptive responses. Its coverage includes applied physiology and extreme physiology.

Wiley has supported the journals' roles as opinion leaders with recent new initiatives including the journals' change in submission system, transition from HighWire to Wiley's Anywhere Article as the version of record, iOS and Android apps, the development of The Physiological Society publications website and a new physiology taxonomy.

UK Russia's Ministry of Education and Science partners with Clarivate Analytics to expand Web of Science access to 1,600 institutions across Russia - 20 Apr 2017

Clarivate Analytics, the source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, in partnership with the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, has expanded its Web of Science coverage from 300 to 1,600 institutions across the Russian Federation. This will empower its scientists and prepare a new generation of scholars with the needed tools and advice to advance their research and dramatically increase global impact.

With a multi-year agreement in place between Clarivate and the Russian Ministry, academic institutions now have full access to the Web of Science, the premier web-based platform for scientific and scholarly research, to better inform their efforts and connect with similar researchers throughout the world. This includes historical data going back to 1975 as well as the unique Russian Science Citation Index, for a number of state public libraries. It also includes the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is growing to over 7,500 journal titles, and releasing a 10-year archive for the index later this year. Clarivate recently announced this commitment to investing in its industry-leading products, one of which is the Web of Science.

Access to the Web of Science allows Russian universities and institutes to co-operate with world leaders of science on an equal footing, helping them see the entire landscape of research results and getting well-versed in what both Russian and foreign colleagues are doing.

US Elsevier announces publication of three new regenerative medicine titles - 20 Apr 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specialising in science and health, has announced the publication of Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic, edited by Dr. Jeffrey Laurence. One of three new regenerative medicine titles, the book concentrates on the latest knowledge, laboratory technique and experimental approaches used by translational research leaders in this field. Promoting cross-disciplinary communication between medical sub-specialties, it emphasises recent innovations, critical barriers to progress, and the new tools being used to overcome them.

Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic organises epigenetics into disease treatment areas with a major focus on oncology, and with broad coverage of pervasive treatment categories such as diabetes, as well as 'diseases of modernity' - including pharmacological addiction, dementia and aging. The book also identifies specific areas of research that require additional study to advance the field as a whole.

The three new regenerative medicine titles are: Translating Epigenetics to the Clinic, edited by Jeffrey Laurence; Biology and Engineering of Stem Cell Niches, edited by Ajaykumar Vishwakarma and Jeffrey Karp; and Bioprinting: Techniques and Risks for Regenerative Medicine by Maika G. Mitchell

In order to meet content needs in regenerative medicine, 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 will educate the next generation of researchers and clinicians, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals.

US EBSCO Health, Dartmouth and Option Grid Collaborative founders announce licensing agreement to improve patient engagement and evidence-based shared decision making - 20 Apr 2017

EBSCO Health, a division of EBSCO Information Services and the creator of DynaMed Plus®, has entered into a licensing arrangement with Dartmouth College and the founders of the Option Grid™ Collaborative to advance evidence-based shared decision making. With this new collaboration, EBSCO Health will combine methodologies utilised at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI) at the Geisel School of Medicine with EBSCO Health's expertise in evidence-based medicine to develop a multitude of new patient decision aids to be distributed under the Option Grid trademark.

Shared decision making is becoming an essential part of the patient-doctor relationship and an emerging focus in health care. The National Learning Consortium of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) says shared decision making is important in situations where 'there is no single 'right' health care decision.' The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) of HHS sees shared decision making as a way to provide consistent, evidence-based information to patients and 'increase knowledge, improve risk estimates, increase patient’s involvement in decisions, and help clarify treatment preferences.'

Patient decision aids are tools to help achieve shared decision making by enabling patients to understand and compare their healthcare options in the context of their personal preferences and values, and arrive at informed decisions. State and national efforts to require and encourage shared decision making are underway, including legislative changes in Washington State that afford enhanced legal protection to physicians who use evidence-based decision aids, requirements of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the use of evidence-based decision aids to be eligible for payment for certain procedures, and the availability of funding opportunities from CMS to test shared decision making models.

Option Grid decision aids are brief, easy-to-read decision aids that can be used in the clinical encounter, allowing patients and their doctors to compare healthcare options based on high-quality, evidence-based answers to patients' commonly asked questions. Research shows Option Grid decision aids increase patient knowledge and shared decision making without increasing the length of a clinical visit.

Since 2012, TDI has operated the Option Grid Collaborative — a network of researchers, practitioners and other individuals who have developed and disseminated Option Grid decision aids. The Option Grid Collaborative was founded by Dr. Glyn Elwyn and Dr. Marie-Anne Durand, CPsychol, professors at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, who are key opinion leaders in the field of shared decision making, having published international research and served on national advisory committees in United States and the United Kingdom.

An April 4, 2017 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association titled 'Prime Time for Shared Decision Making' calls for 'the implementation of high-quality and achievable shared decision making,' including trustworthy decision aids that can be easily integrated into clinical practice with minimal burden. EBSCO Health believes that the new generation of EBSCO Health Option Grid decision aids will provide a considerable step forward to achieving that vision, allowing shared decision making to become a reality in the routine practice of healthcare.
