UK Oxford University Press to provide usage statistics to library customers compliant with new COUNTER Code of Practice, Release 5 - 23 May 2018

Oxford University Press will provide usage statistics to library customers that are compliant with the new COUNTER Code of Practice, Release 5 this summer. The COUNTER Code of Practice is the industry-standard format for usage reporting of electronic resources. Oxford University Press will be one of the first publishers to be compliant with Release 5, well ahead of the required date of January 2019 set by COUNTER.

COUNTER is an international initiative designed to serve librarians, publishers, and intermediaries by facilitating the recording and exchange of online usage statistics. Release 5 of the Code of Practice has been developed and improved due to the contributions of both libraries and content providers. The new reports are designed to be clearer, more flexible, and more consistent, enabling customers to see the value of the electronic resources to which they subscribe.

Oxford University Press provides customers with monthly usage reports that enable library customers to analyse how their Journals and Online Products resources are being used, such as the number of full-text article views.

US ASM Journals now accepting submissions in any format - 23 May 2018

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) recently announced that ASM Journals are now accepting initial submissions in any format to ease the submission process for authors.

The mission of the ASM Journals program is to advance the microbiological sciences through the pursuit of scientific knowledge and dissemination of the results of fundamental and applied research. With ASM Journals now accepting submissions in any format, ASM is furthering its commitment to authors to make the submission process less burdensome and more quickly disseminate research to the global scientific community through its high-quality journals.

Prior to launching this initiative across the ASM Journals program, a pilot was initiated with ASMís Journal of Virology. The journal announced that it would accept manuscript submissions in any format (including figures, tables and references) to its community in October 2017. ASM editors and reviewers reported that this did not produce any inefficiencies for the peer-review process and the news was embraced by the author community, the pilot was deemed successful and effective May, 1, 2018 all journals began to accept format neutral submission.

UK The BMJ and Harvard Global Health Institute launch special collection - 23 May 2018

The BMJ in partnership with the Harvard Global Health Institute has launched a special collection of articles that will explore how to achieve effective universal health coverage (UHC).

The collection will highlight the importance of quality in UHC, potential finance models, how best to incentivise stakeholders, and uncover some of the barriers to true UHC.

The collection coincides with a panel discussion at the 71st World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva entitled Quality Care: Delivering on the Promise of UHC.

Speaking alongside Health Ministers and representatives from the World Bank, World Health Organization and OECD will be Dr Kamran Abbasi, Executive Editor at The BMJ and Professor Ashish Jha at the Harvard Global Health Institute.

UHC refers to a system which seeks to provide everyone, everywhere with access to essential quality health services without facing financial hardship. It is a key target of the UN sustainable development goals and a top priority for the WHO.

According to Wilhemina Jallah, Minister of Health of the Republic of Liberia and colleagues, in a linked article, investing in community health workers accelerates universal health coverage.

They describe a program to hire, train, and equip nearly 3000 community health assistants and over 300 nurse supervisors that has led to remarkable progress in tackling common childhood diseases and supporting pregnant women.

In a second linked article, Professor Adolfo Rubinstein, Minister of Health of Argentina, outlines how they are building more effective health care coverage in Argentina. Reforms include setting up provincial public insurance schemes, creating a transparent process for setting priorities, reducing disparities in effective coverage, and building a primary care oriented health care system.

All the articles will be available at https://www.bmj.com/universal-health-coverage
