US ASTM International Spectroscopy Group seeks participation for updating informatics standard for labs - 19 Jun 2017

Anyone is invited to join efforts to update ASTM International's well-known standard that helps labs optimise operations through IT applications. The committee on molecular spectroscopy and separation science (E13) is seeking participation from a wide segment of users, vendors, and other stakeholders to update the standard, known as the Standard Guide for Laboratory Informatics (E1578).

Informatics tools are used to collect, store, process, analyze, report, and archive data from labs. Examples of lab informatics include lab information management systems (LIMS); electronic lab notebooks (ELNs); chromatography data systems (CDS); and scientific data management systems (SDMS).

According to ASTM International member James B. Powers, Jr., of Bridge Associates International LLC, the use of lab informatics, the adoption of lean lab principles, and the importance of data integrity have continued to evolve. The upcoming revision(s) to the standard will address the need to keep pace with these changes and innovations.

US APA targets online piracy websites to curtail unauthorized publication of journal articles - 19 Jun 2017

The American Psychological Association has announced that it is targeting online piracy websites and not individual authors in its efforts to curtail the unauthorised sharing on the internet of articles published in the association's journals.

The move - a change to a recently launched pilot program - came in response to concerns voiced by some authors who were surprised to hear from their academic institutions that they should remove final APA copyrighted articles from their websites.

In February, the company Digimarc, under contract to APA, began sending article takedown notices to sites that had posted APA journal articles without permission. For the first 17 weeks of the pilot program, takedown notices targeted five APA journals. During that phase, APA found 72 percent of the articles published over two years in five APA journals were on pirate websites.

In the past week, APA moved into Phase 2 of the pilot, in which the takedown notices were expanded to all 29 of APA's official journals. The takedown notices went primarily to online file-sharing/piracy websites, but notices also went to about 80 university websites found to be violating APA’s posting guidelines.

Under APA's publishing guidelines, authors are free to post the final accepted, preformatted versions of their articles — the accepted manuscript — on their personal websites, university repositories and author networking sites without an embargo. However, any posted manuscripts must include a note linking to the final published article, the authoritative document.

US ACMG's journal Genetics in Medicine now in top 2.5% of all indexed journals - 19 Jun 2017

The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) has announced that the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor Journal Citation Reports has just increased the impact factor of the ACMG's peer-reviewed medical genetics and genomics journal, Genetics in Medicine (GIM) to 8.229 for 2016, up from 7.710 in 2015. Genetics in Medicine is published by Springer Nature.

GIM is currently ranked 10 of 166 titles in the Genetics & Heredity category and is the top-ranked of genetic journal that has a primarily clinical focus. The Impact Factor is an objective measure of the world's leading journals, based on articles' cited references and is oft considered a measure of a journal's overall successful performance and relevance to its field.

The journal, published since 1998, is supported by an expert Board of Editors representing all facets of genetic and genomic medicine, including such specialties as biochemical genetics, cytogenetics and pharmacogenetics.

US AACC announces rise in impact factor of its journal, Clinical Chemistry - 19 Jun 2017

AACC, a global scientific and medical professional organisation dedicated to better health through laboratory medicine, has announced that the impact factor of its journal, Clinical Chemistry, has risen to 8.008 in the 2016 Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports. This impact factor places Clinical Chemistry in the top 2.6% of 12,062 ranked academic journals and speaks to the significant influence of the science it publishes on laboratory medicine and patient care.

Laboratory medicine professionals provide essential answers to clinicians so that patients get the care they need—from diagnosing the flu to identifying the therapies that cancer patients will respond to best. As the most trusted and authoritative journal in laboratory medicine, Clinical Chemistry strives to advance the field by showcasing vital research that holds the key to challenging patient health problems. Every year, Clinical Chemistry publishes 2,000 pages of peer-reviewed papers that drive clinical testing forward and are chosen based on the novelty of their findings as well as the high quality of the scientific evidence they present. These papers cover timely subjects ranging from designer drug and Zika testing to emerging technology, such as mass spectrometry, that is transforming the way medical tests are performed.

Clinical Chemistry's consistently high impact factors reflect the exact standards met by the research the journal publishes. A journal's impact factor—calculated by Thomson Reuters, a recognized authority for evaluating the usefulness of a journal—is determined using the number of citations received in that year by articles published in the journal during the two preceding years.

US Industry initiative for manuscript transfer officially named MECA - 19 Jun 2017

The cross-organisational industry initiative previously called Common Manuscript Transfer Protocol has been officially named MECA, which stands for Manuscript Exchange Common Approach. In addition to the project's name change, other updates include formal launch via a presentation at SSP, and the announcement of a new website.

MECA strives to facilitate and standardise multiple types of manuscript exchange, including: submission system-to-submission system; preprint server-to-submission system; authoring tool-to-submission system; and submission system-to-production services.

Editorial Manager already supports all of these exchange options using JATS, but Aries welcomes an industry-based approach.
