Netherland Elsevier to publish British Journal of Anaesthesia and BJA Education - 20 Feb 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, is now the new publisher of the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA) and its companion title BJA Education (BJA Ed), beginning in 2018.

Both journals are official publications of The Royal College of Anaesthetists, The College of Anaesthetists of Ireland and The Hong Kong College of Anaesthesiologists, and published by Elsevier on behalf of the charitable organisation, British Journal of Anaesthesia. The journals' editorial activities are underpinned by core values of integrity and innovation, and are undertaken to provide support to researchers and practitioners worldwide who are dedicated to driving advancements in the field of anaesthesia and to providing optimal patient care.

Founded in 1923, BJA remains the oldest and largest independent journal of anaesthesia. The journal strives to foster and disseminate the best research and educational information in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management with the ultimate goal of improving patient care globally. The journal will continue to be led by Editor-in-Chief Hugh C. Hemmings, Professor and Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology and Senior Associate Dean for Research, Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell University, New York, NY, US. Prof. Hemmings and BJA’s eminent international editorial board are committed to the publication of papers of the highest standard through the application of its stringent peer review process.

BJA's sister publication, BJA Education, has already earned a global reputation as a highly valued resource for continuing professional development in anaesthesia and related specialties. Published monthly, it strengthens the educational platform provided by the BJA as a whole and complements the well-established education reviews published in the BJA. The BJA Education editorial team, under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief Professor Jonathan Thompson, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and University of Leicester, UK, commissions articles from international experts. Each article is accompanied by a set of multiple choice questions to enhance learning.

Researchers and practitioners, as well as the libraries that serve them, will have access to the journal's content through Elsevier's online platforms. These offer readers enhanced discoverability, while authors benefit from seamless and global dissemination of their work.

BJA is ranked No. 1 among anaesthesiology journals with an Impact Factor of 6.238, according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports.

UK IOP Publishing expands double-blind peer review following successful pilot on two of its journals - 20 Feb 2018

IOP Publishing (IOP) has announced the expansion of its double-blind peer review programme, following a successful pilot on two of its journals.

IOP is experimenting with different peer review models as part of its commitment to providing high-quality peer review and meeting the future needs of the research communities.

In double-blind peer review, neither reviewer nor author knows the other's identity. In contrast, under conventional single-blind peer review the reviewer knows the author's identity but the author does not know who reviewed their paper.

The double-blind pilot, which ran from January to December 2017 on the journals Materials Research Express (MRX) and Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express (BPEX), saw an author uptake of the double-blind review option of around 20 percent on each journal, and positive feedback from both authors and reviewers.

The option will now be a permanent feature on MRX and BPEX, and will also be offered to authors on a forthcoming new addition to the 'Express' series of journals.

US NEH and NLM renew partnership to collaborate on research, education, and career initiatives - 20 Feb 2018

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) have reaffirmed a partnership, originally established in 2012, to develop initiatives that explore the intersection of biomedical and humanities research.

This collaboration will bring together scholars, scientists, librarians, archivists, curators, technical information specialists, healthcare professionals, cultural heritage professionals, and others in the humanities and biomedical communities in order to share expertise and develop new research agendas.

NEH Senior Deputy Chairman Jon Parrish Peede and NLM Director Patricia Flatley Brennan signed the memorandum of understanding extending the partnership agreement through 2021 shortly before Viral Networks: An Advanced Workshop in Digital Humanities and Medical History. Hosted by the NLM and supported by NEH through a grant to Virginia Tech, this 3-day workshop convened scholars of medical history whose research shows promise for making innovative use of methods, tools, and data from the digital humanities.

Viral Networks was the latest in a long series of collaborations between the NLM and NEH. Other collaborations have included the April 2016 workshop Images and Texts in Medical History: An Introduction to Methods, Tools, and Data from the Digital Humanities, which explored emerging approaches to the analysis of texts and images in the field of medical history; the April 2013 symposium Shared Horizons: Data, Biomedicine, and the Digital Humanities, which explored the intersection of digital humanities and biomedicine, and the October 2013 symposium An Epidemiology of Information: New Methods for Interpreting Disease and Data, which explored new methods for large-scale data analysis of epidemic disease.
