US Elsevier and phactMI partner to deliver a medical information solution for healthcare professionals - 25 Apr 2019

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, and phactMI, a non-profit collaboration of pharmaceutical company Medical Information (MI) leaders, will develop a new semantic search portal designed to provide healthcare professionals with scientifically accurate, up-to-date and unbiased information.

The solution, built on Elsevier’s Entellect life sciences platform and due to launch in Q4 2019, will enable users to quickly access the latest approved medical documentation from 30 major pharmaceutical manufacturers, as well as relevant information from the FDA, such as standard product labels.

The portal will allow users to search by relevant medical information, so that healthcare professionals will be able to access the most current and accurate information without having to consult multiple sources. The solution intends to provide easy access to the most relevant and current medical information.

Entellect was designed to draw in scientific and medical data from disparate sources, including internal and external siloes, websites, Laboratory Information Management Systems, archives and applications, and collate and re-format that information into a consistent and normalized format. So, even if information from two companies is presented differently, Entellect can gather and normalize it so that it is comparable for users. The platform’s semantic search functionality improves the relevancy of results, returning information relevant to the search term.

US HighWire’s Rejected Article Tracker granted US patent - 25 Apr 2019

Scholarly publishing technology provider, HighWire, has been issued a patent for the algorithm and design which underlies the HighWire Vizor Rejected Article Tracker.

Granted on April 9, 2019 by the United States Patent Office, the algorithm was developed by John Sack as lead inventor, working with a number of co-inventor colleagues, to identify articles which a publisher has rejected and to track the performance of these rejected articles in the publishing marketplace. The issuance of this patented technology reinforces the value that HighWire brings to the full publishing lifecycle and the unparalleled insight on offer to publishers.

The Rejected Article Tracker is one component of HighWire’s Impact Vizor suite of tools that allows publishers to quantitatively assess the performance of their publishing program and the editorial decisions which support the program. By identifying previously rejected articles and comparing the impact and performance of those rejected articles to articles which were accepted, the Rejected Article Tracker allows journal publishers to assess their publishing criteria and to arrive at quantitative insights that will guide future decisions.

The patent number for the Rejected Article Tracker is US patent number 10,255,359.

Canada BCI and the University of Toronto sign agreement to expand access to OCUL’s Scholars Portal Dataverse - 25 Apr 2019

The Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire (BCI) and the University of Toronto have signed an agreement allowing researchers from Quebec universities to deposit the datasets generated by their research to OCUL’s Scholars Portal Dataverse platform.

Scholars Portal is a group of services and technological infrastructure provided by the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) and hosted at the University of Toronto Libraries. Dataverse is an open source software developed by the Institute of Quantitative Social Studies (IQSS) at Harvard University that allows researchers to deposit and share small and medium datasets. Since 2012, Scholars Portal has hosted an instance of Dataverse and recently completed a project, with the support of the Université de Montréal, to provide a bilingual interface.

Over the next months, each university library in Quebec will work to set up an institutional Dataverse on the Scholars Portal instance, making the service accessible to its community of researchers.

With this new agreement, the libraries offer university researchers in Quebec a high-quality infrastructure for describing, depositing, and even sharing when desired, the datasets generated by the research they have completed, highlighting these valuable resources and promoting their reuse.
