US Clarivate Analytics to be exclusive provider of Web of Science citation data to Australian Research Council for ERA 2018 - 22 Aug 2017

Clarivate Analytics, the global provider of trusted insights and analytics to enable the research ecosystem to accelerate discovery, will provide citation data to the Australian Research Council (ARC), a Commonwealth entity within the Australian Government that provides advice on research matters, administers the National Competitive Grants Program and administers Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).

Web of Science will be the exclusive source of citation data for the ARC to use when assessing the quality of research at Australian higher education institutions in the 2018 round of ERA. This exercise includes evaluations informed by a range of indicators including citation metrics and peer review, with a focus on those relating most clearly to the quality of research outputs.

Through ERA, the ARC identifies excellence in research by comparing Australia's university research outputs against international benchmarks, creating incentives to improve the quality of research and identifying emerging research areas and opportunities for further development. Using Web of Science data, the ARC exercise will be supported with high quality and accurate data as well as coverage of key relevant journals to identify and promote Australian research excellence.

As the country's national research evaluation framework, ERA identifies and promotes excellence across the full spectrum of research activity in Australia's 42 higher education institutions. The ARC has responsibility for ERA, which provides the government, universities, industry and prospective students with valuable information about academic research performance in Australia, nationally and internationally, for all discipline areas.

ERA promotes high-quality research to benefit Australian society and drive the country's innovation and economic growth. For more information about ERA and ERA 2018, visit: http://www.arc.gov.au/excellence-research-australia.

Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, in partnership with the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE), has announced the launch of a new open access journal, Environmental Epidemiology, published as part of the Lippincott portfolio. The journal is a companion title to one of the Society's official journals, Epidemiology.

The new journal is an online only, open access journal aiming to provide a global forum for environmental epidemiology research. Fully peer reviewed and held to the same high standards of rigor as Epidemiology, the new journal will support the global community of environmental epidemiology experts by providing a venue for articles that further the understanding of all aspects of the field. The inaugural Editor-in-Chief is Dr. Bert Brunekreef, Professor of Environmental Epidemiology at Utrecht University, The Netherlands and past president of ISEE.

Epidemiology, which is also an official journal of ISEE, will continue its commitment to publishing high-quality environmental epidemiologic research under the editorship of Timothy Lash, DSc. The two journals will share editorial policies developed over the years by Epidemiology. From time to time, the editors of these companion journals may confer about which journal is best suited for a particular paper.

The journal is now open for peer review of manuscripts. Manuscripts may be submitted online at: www.editorialmanager.com/EE.

The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Womenís Hospital has engaged a partnership with JACM, The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine to highlight the best new research in the mushrooming field of mind-body medicine. Most recently (June 2017), the Osher team explored recent mind-body research for veterans. The three selected studies range from a focus on the impact on telomere length, to a group-based clinical intervention, to an app developed to help veterans heal relationships with their partners as they return to their homes.

In each quarterly column, the Osher Center's Director of Research Peter Wayne, PhD, Gloria Yeh, MD, MPH, Research Fellowship Director, and Darshan Mehta, MD, MPH, the center's Director of Education work with JACM Editor-in-Chief John Weeks to select a theme. The three researchers, all JACM Associate Editors, will each select one study from the literature to abstract and comment upon. Each will be available free on the JACM website until September 21, 2017.

Each column is organized around a theme with upcoming topics in areas such as women's health, environment/nature, and social justice.

JACM is a monthly peer-reviewed journal published online with open access options and in print. Led by John Weeks, the Co-Founder and past Executive Director of the Academic Collaborative for Integrative Health, JACM publishes controlled trials, observational studies, scientific reviews and leading commentary intended to help medical organisations and governmental organisations optimise the use of integrative products, practices, and practitioners in patient care and in delivery and payment strategies. Complete tables of content and a sample issue may be viewed on the JACM website.
