US Wolters Kluwer Health to divest its procedure documentation and order set management software business, ProVation Medical - 12 Jan 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has signed an agreement to divest ProVation Medical, its procedure documentation and order set management software business, to Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. for $180 million (approximately €150 million) in cash.

The divestment reflects the Health division's increasing focus on supporting healthcare providers in delivering improved patient outcomes by offering a broad and cohesive suite of products, from healthcare learning and research, to advanced clinical decision support, terminology management and patient engagement. This broad-based, multispecialty and integrated range of solutions can most effectively help healthcare providers in improving outcomes and reducing variability in care.

ProVation Medical is the U.S. market-leader in gastroenterology procedure documentation software and is also a major supplier of order sets to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers. The business had revenues of €65 million in 2016 and has approximately 200 employees.

Completion of the divestment is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to take several months. Assuming completion, Wolters Kluwer intends to deploy the proceeds of the divestment towards additional share repurchases in order to mitigate the expected earnings dilution.

US The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology now included in Clarivate Analytics' Emerging Sources Citation Index - 12 Jan 2018

The Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT) has been selected by Clarivate Analytics for inclusion in its Emerging Sources Citation Index. This coverage begins with 2017.

The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) covers all areas of the scholarly literature of the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities. To be accepted for coverage in ESCI, a journal must be peer reviewed, follow ethical publishing practices, meet certain technical requirements, and be recommended or requested by a scholarly audience of Web of Science users. Journals in the ESCI are discoverable via the Web of Science with an identical indexing process to any other indexed journal, with full citation counts, author information, etc.

Published by the technologist section of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), the JNMT focuses entirely on the technology crucial to nuclear medicine. In peer-reviewed articles, every quarter the journal offers recent technically centered articles on imaging and instrumentation, radiopharmacy, quality assurance, radiation safety, and more.

SNMMI also publishes The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, which is listed in Clarivate's Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). JNMT's selection for the Emerging Sources Citation Index could possibly lead to future inclusion in SCIE.

UK Prachee Avasthi becomes first early-career researcher to join eLife's Board of Directors - 12 Jan 2018

eLife has announced that Prachee Avasthi is the first early-career researcher to join its Board of Directors. Avasthi, who is Assistant Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, US, will help the board to oversee the strategic direction of eLife and support the non-profit in the pursuit of its mission.

eLife aims to help scientists accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in science. The community behind eLife, including the research funders who support the journal, the editors and referees who run the peer-review process, and its Early-Career Advisory Group, is keenly aware of the pressures faced by early-stage investigators, and is working to create a more positive publishing experience that will help these researchers receive the recognition they deserve.

In support of this goal, Avasthi will bring the voice of early-career faculty members to eLife's board and encourage further involvement of early-career scientists in every level of the organisation, including the journal's review process.

In addition to her commitments to her research and eLife, Avasthi recently joined the Board of Directors for ASAPbio, a scientist-driven initiative to promote the productive use of preprints in the life sciences – a mission that eLife strongly supports as part of its own goals.

She has also set up a forum specifically for principal investigators (PIs) using the social networking platform Slack. Called New PI Slack, the platform allows members to discuss and support each other with various aspects of their careers, including grant feedback, mentorship advice and publication issues.
