German Springer Nature launches one-year pilot with PaperHive - 20 Nov 2017

Springer Nature has launched a one-year pilot with PaperHive, an annotation system and copyright-compliant collaborative research platform. The partnership focuses on increasing reader engagement of university students with academic literature in various fields including biomedicine, mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The pilot phase comprises books and textbooks from Springer and Springer Spektrum, a publisher for classical and digital educational media in the field of natural sciences and mathematics in the German-speaking region.

PaperHive's annotation, group conversation and sharing capabilities will be enabled for book and textbooks titles. Students and tutors will be able to discuss, ask and answer questions, solve text-specific exercises, share opinions and ideas in the margins of the selected titles.

PaperHive is a cross-publisher collaborative research platform enabling citable in-document discussions of academic texts. The platform transforms reading from an isolated activity into a process of active collaboration, helping researchers and students communicate. PaperHive is used in e-learning, proofreading, post-publication peer review, publishers' marketing campaigns.

Clinical decision-making has become a little easier with the launch of a range of new features from BMJ Best Practice to help healthcare professionals make the best decisions with their patients.

Ranked one of the leading clinical decision support tools worldwide, BMJ Best Practice draws on the latest evidence-based research, guidelines and expert opinion to offer step-by-step guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention.

The new Best Practice has been developed and tested with hundreds of healthcare professionals worldwide with a focus on their key needs. As a result, it is even better placed to support decision making at the point of care.

For instance, doctors said they wanted to find the latest information quickly and easily, whenever and wherever they need it. The new BMJ Best Practice delivers on this. Information is updated daily with drug alerts added within 48 hours of publication and practice-changing updates within 30 days to ensure doctors have the latest guidance at hand. The site supports searching in over 100 languages.

The website navigation and pages have been redesigned to make finding information quicker - and the award-winning app works offline, providing access anywhere.

Other significant features include the addition of procedural videos, nearly 400 patient leaflets, over 250 evidence-based medical calculators, integrated links to Cochrane Clinical Answers and improved differential diagnosis tables and treatment algorithms.

Switzerland Frontiers in Physiology launches new section - Environmental, Aviation and Space Physiology - 20 Nov 2017

Frontiers in Physiology has launched a new section, 'Environmental, Aviation and Space Physiology'. This is the third section launch in the journal this year, following expansions into 'Avian Physiology' and 'Embryonic and Developmental Physiology'.

The section will be led by two co-Specialty Chief Editors, Professors Richard Boyle of the NASA Ames Research Centre, USA, and Hanns-Christian Gunga of Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.

The section will consider many of the challenges humans face on Earth and in space. Organisms, both animal and human, must by necessity adapt to their surroundings to survive. Environmental changes may be gradual, as seen in climate change, or drastic, such as propelling an organism into space. In order to understand how our animals are adapting to their habitats, and to know how the human body copes with exposure to extreme environments, research into physiological change becomes ever more important.

Even as high altitudes, arctic conditions and changing climates on Earth push animal and human bodies to extremes, it is a feat of human achievement to consider the substantial technological advances made in space travel. Professors Boyle and Gunga emphasized the importance of these developments in their mission statement.
