US Wolters Kluwer Health releases latest version of its clinical surveillance solution, Sentri7® - 21 Sep 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has released the latest version of its industry-leading clinical surveillance solution, Sentri7®. The solution gives hospitals tools and resources to stay in front of new and emerging clinical challenges and battle the antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are taking a toll on patient safety and hospital costs. In an April 2018 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 221 instances of unusual resistance of so-called nightmare bacteria that are virtually invulnerable to most known treatments.

Sentri7 is part of a suite of applications that have been integrated into the SoleSource platform, which brings together solutions that address a wide range of clinical surveillance challenges and compliance activities across a hospital or health system. It makes it easier for clinicians to proactively identify patients who may be experiencing a life-threatening condition or quickly find and respond to an infection before it spreads.

Newly released surveillance capabilities include: the integration of clinical initiatives on the SoleSource platform for antimicrobial stewardship, medication management, infection prevention and opioid management. The platform also contains POC Advisor®, a dedicated surveillance module for sepsis and other emergent conditions; out-of-the-box, evidence-based content including alerts and recommended actions for real-time prioritisation of urgent conditions and follow-up for patients at-risk; integrated documentation provides a one-click solution to push clinical notes into the EHR, keeping the full care team on the same page while eliminating double documentation; and robust analytics create an environment for continuous improvement by enabling clinicians and administrators to understand how their interventions are driving measurable improvement in cost and outcomes performance.

Understanding the impact on outcomes has been a gap in clinical surveillance solutions. The SoleSource platform offers new analytics that give hospitals control of intuitive views of their outcomes, supporting reporting within the department, at the facility level and across a health system.

Everson and the pharmacy team provide guidance to the hospitals' quality staff on which key performance metrics should be tracked and reported year-over-year.

US EBSCO Information Services releases Serials Price Projection Report for 2019 - 21 Sep 2018

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has released the 2019 Serials Price Projection Report. The report projects that the overall effective publisher price increases for academic and academic medical libraries are expected to be in the range of five to six percent (before currency impact). EBSCO releases the Serials Price Projection Report based on surveys of a wide range of publishers and reviews historical serials pricing data to assist information professionals as they make budgeting decisions for the renewals season.

The Serials Price Projection Report looks at market dynamics highlighting many topics that impact the scholarly information marketplace, including library budget challenges, government mandates, political climates, collection assessment and evaluation tools, Open Access (OA), publisher consolidation, publisher business models, increased publisher competition for content and organised piracy.

The 2019 serials marketplace continues to see steady, annual publisher price increases, with no indicators this will change. Library budget growth remains a top concern, generally lagging behind annual inflation in journal pricing in spite of the annual price increase caps applied to many e-journal packages.

According to key economic indicators, the US economy is doing well with steady growth, low unemployment and little inflation. Though overall budgets in the US academic library market show modest improvements, the budget for serials materials generally have not kept pace with annual journal price inflation. Outside the US, instances of continued library budget contraction continue.

Although the serial price forecasts are based upon careful analysis, EBSCO recommends caution when using these projections, as they rely on historical trends and current estimates. EBSCO will update the projection information if economic conditions warrant it.

The 2019 Serials Price Projection Report in its entirety and the Five-Year Journal Price Increase History is available at https://journals.ebsco.com/products-services/explore-content.

UK Cambridge University Press announces content sharing success - 21 Sep 2018

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has announced that its content sharing tool, Cambridge Core Share, is now a permanent feature of its online books and journals platform following a successful ten-month pilot.

Launched in December 2017, Cambridge Core Share helps to make research more open and accessible by enabling users to generate a link to a read-only version of a journal article which can be shared online, allowing anyone to read the final version of the article for free.

Cambridge Core Share has also recently been enhanced with new functionality that gives users the option of generating a PDF containing a link to a journal article, making it easier for users to share the links on scholarly collaboration network sites such as ResearchGate and Academia.edu.

Since its launch, over 6,000 Core Share links have been generated by people around the world, leading to almost 160,000 free-to-read views with monthly views growing to over 14,000. Over 250 journals have joined Cambridge Core Share and work is underway to make the service more widely available across the Press's entire journals programme. More content has been added; all compatible digital content from 1997 can now be shared, whereas only articles from 2016 onwards could be shared during the pilot.

The Press's Open Research programme builds on existing activities by increasing investment in open solutions, products, policies, processes and partnerships. The Press's vision in Open Research is to unlock the potential of high quality research and work towards a more impactful, community-led and diverse Open future.

US JMU Libraries in partnership with ARL receives IMLS national forum grant - 21 Sep 2018

James Madison University (JMU) Libraries, in partnership with the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), has been awarded $89,000 by the US Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to convene a national forum of experts and stakeholders to address key opportunities and challenges in building a collective collection-development system for open access (OA) content. This 'OA in the Open' forum will engage participants in creative thinking around how a new collective funding model could be designed to minimise the creation of new membership organisations while simultaneously building community stakeholdership.

The national forum conversation is a critical step for academic libraries, whose operations, budgets, and workflows are optimised for print or licensed electronic content, including relationships with an array of service providers such as subscription agents. In contrast, OA content providers most often receive provisioning or start-up funds from grants, and then devise memberships in order to collect sustaining fees.

The OA in the Open project will include a series of focus groups in early 2019 at the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, Washington; the Electronic Resources & Libraries Conference in Austin, Texas; and the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. With a total of 75 people participating in six focus groups, the project team will talk to a non-random but diverse sample of the academic library community about the conditions under which they could and would participate in openly and collectively funding OA content. The project team will report its key observations in a presentation immediately after the 2019 Digital Library Federation (DLF) Forum in Tampa, Florida, and produce a white paper to motivate the community toward collective action.

To help ensure representation from a multitude of perspectives and academic libraries of all sizes and types, the grant includes a travel scholarship fund to enable four people to attend each conference and participate in the focus groups. ARL will administer the travel scholarships to people who identify as members of a group (or groups) underrepresented among library practitioners; who work at community colleges, minority-serving institutions (MSIs), or historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs); or who could otherwise contribute to the diversity of the forum.

Israel Ex Libris achieves ISO 27017 certification for security controls for cloud services - 21 Sep 2018

Ex Libris® Group, a ProQuest company, has announced that the company has achieved certification for ISO/IEC 27017:2015, an international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO/IEC 27017:2015 provides a code of practice for information security controls, including guidelines that expand upon the ISO/IEC 27002 standard by adding security controls specifically related to cloud computing.

The Ex Libris ISO 27017 certification is proof of the company's ongoing commitment to align with globally-recognised best practices. In order to achieve ISO/IEC 27017:2015 certification, a company must demonstrate its ability to implement cloud-specific security measures, such as controls for shared roles and responsibilities within a cloud computing environment, segregation in virtual computing environments, and the alignment of security management for virtual and physical networks.

Ex Libris has long been dedicated to adhering to the most up-to-date cloud security standards and best practices, and the ISO 27017 guidelines are part of the Ex Libris multi-tier security model covering all aspects of cloud services. This model and the Ex Libris controls are based on international protocols, standards, and industry best practices, including ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO/IEC 27018:2014, ISO 22301, ISO/IEC 27017:2015, and CSA STAR Self-Assessment.
