US DynaMed announces product enhancements and new platform features - 23 Aug 2019

DynaMed®, EBSCO Information Services’ (EBSCO) flagship clinical decision support tool, has announced product enhancements and new platform features, replacing all prior versions of DynaMed. The new features and functionality are designed to create a customised user experience tailored for today’s clinician. DynaMed is designed to facilitate efficient, evidence-based patient care, providing the most current clinical evidence at unprecedented speed.

Roughly one million new research articles are published each year, and hundreds of clinical practice guidelines are being updated in that same timeframe. Clinicians are inundated with information and expected to keep current on the latest clinical evidence and evaluate the trustworthiness of these new findings before implementing them into practice. This constant influx of new information coupled with the demands of patient care present a challenge for all clinicians.

DynaMed’s new enhancements are designed to provide a personalised, user-friendly experience that will save time and enable clinicians to focus on patient care. With easy integration into hospital systems linked to the Electronic Health Record (EHR), a responsive platform design and a streamlined mobile app, DynaMed is accessible anytime, anywhere. Made possible by its shift to a cloud-based system, the platform offers a personalised user experience, providing clinicians with easy access to information via the browse specialty functionality, a recently viewed topics section, and updates tailored to their specific interests.

DynaMed has also made it easier for clinicians looking to support lifelong learning. Continuous tracking of DynaMed usage allows physicians and other advanced care providers to earn continuing medical education (CME) credits and Part II Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points with every search.

China Springer Nature initiates China New Development Awards, honours Chinese scholars’ contributions to the world’s sustainable development - 23 Aug 2019

Springer Nature has granted China New Development Awards to the Chinese authors of ten scholarly books in recognition of their exceptional contributions to the delivery of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These winning titles were selected from a total of over 800 books published in 2018 by the Springer Nature imprints Springer and Palgrave Macmillan, and authored by China-based researchers. They cover a wide range of discipline areas including social sciences and humanities, business and economics, engineering and technology, as well as life sciences and biomedicine. Two of these winning books focus on China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

In September 2015, the 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, calling for action by all countries to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. One year later, China released its own guidelines to implement the SDGs and made efforts to put into practice a new strategy of ‘innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development.’

The 2030 Agenda provides a framework for all governments, businesses, organisations and society to work together to solve the world’s biggest challenges, such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, and peace and justice. Springer Nature, one of the world’s leading academic publishers, supports delivery of the SDGs through its publishing programme by sharing the discoveries that address the challenges of sustainable development.

The judging panel for the first China New Development Awards includes Springer Nature in-house editors and executives leading its SDG programme. Each of the ten winning titles involves at least one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and helps to address them in practice.

Academic books are used by authors to summarise and share their long-term research findings at a certain stage of their careers. Compared with journal papers, they are more complete and comprehensive in topic coverage, and are written more systematically. They also feature a longer shelf life; in particular, some classics on fundamental research and works used as textbooks remain long-standing because of their enduring academic and ideological values. Therefore, academic books have their unique role and advantage in helping understand and solve complicated, sustainability issues spanning across different aspects of knowledge.

Around 100 representatives from the research and publishing communities in China joined each other at the prize-giving ceremony for the awards held at this year’s Beijing International Book Fair, where they looked back on and celebrated years of achievements by the Chinese scholars.

Some selected chapters of all these winning books are available for free reading online and downloading until September 30, 2019.

US HighWire expands its journal site hosting provision for the American College of Cardiology - 23 Aug 2019

Scholarly publishing technology provider HighWire has announced that it is expanding its journal site hosting provision for the American College of Cardiology (ACC).

The Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) family of journals is one of the most widely read and impactful cardiovascular journal programs in the world. Collectively spanning the entire field of cardiovascular medicine, each journal aims to publish the highest-quality peer-reviewed original research, review articles, illustrations and editorial content.

Having provided hosting for JACC and five further speciality journals since 2016, HighWire now hosts the new JACC: Case Reports, launched in June 2019, and will host JACC: CardioOncology, launching in September this year.

The JACC journals utilise JCore, part of the HighWire Hosting solution. This provides a powerful content ingestion, enrichment and publishing infrastructure for journal websites. By electing JCore to be used in conjunction with ScienceDirect, JACC retains full control over its sites, and can provide access to individual users as well as better understand and analyze member behavior.

US medRxiv now have the option to transfer manuscripts for publication consideration at relevant PLOS journals - 23 Aug 2019

Authors with preprints on the new health sciences preprint server medRxiv now have the option to transfer their manuscripts for publication consideration at relevant PLOS journals in the topic area, PLOS Medicine, PLOS NTDs, or PLOS ONE. PLOS is among the first publishers to offer direct transfer service from the new server.

Earlier this summer, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) announced the launch of medRxiv, a preprint server specifically designed for the health sciences. A corollary to CSHL’s popular bioRxiv platform, founded in 2013, medRxiv offers the same quick and easy posting process, plus an additional enhanced screening process to protect patient information, ensure high ethical standards, and guard against posting any potentially harmful health information.

Publicly posting preprints benefits the research community broadly, as well as individual scientists. Sharing results early accelerates the pace of scientific advancement while helping to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort. In the health sciences specifically, preprints can be an effective tool for sharing information during an outbreak. Preprints empower researchers to choose when and how their work is shared, opening new opportunities to collaborate, earn credit and citations, and get helpful feedback–even as the manuscript undergoes peer review at a journal.
