Italy Three EIFL partner institutions sign the Berlin Declaration - 23 Nov 2011

Not-for-profit organisation Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL) has announced that three more EIFL partner institutions have signed the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and the Humanities. The institutions are: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (Ghana), University of Belgrade (Serbia) and Makerere University (Uganda). These institutions join over 340 leading international research, scientific, and cultural institutions from around the world that have signed the Declaration.

The Declaration builds on the significant progress of the Budapest Open Access Initiative, calling for open access to knowledge in the humanities as well as in the sciences. It also moves beyond the scope of primary literature, indicating, open access contributions include original scientific research results, raw data and metadata, source materials, digital representations of pictorial and graphical materials and scholarly multimedia material.

By signing the declaration, the institutions will, in future, encourage researchers to make their materials available in open access (through self-archiving in open access repositories or publishing in open access journals). They will also encourage the holders of cultural heritage to support open access by providing their resources on the internet. The signatories commit: to develop means and ways to evaluate open access contributions to maintain the standards of quality assurance and good scientific practice; to advocate that open access publications be recognized in promotion and tenure evaluation; to advocate the intrinsic merit of contributions to an open access infrastructure by software tool development, content provision, metadata creation, or the publication of individual articles; and to pursue solutions that advance the internet 'as an emerging functional medium for distributing knowledge.'

UK NHS in England to develop Framework Agreement for medical content procurement - 23 Nov 2011

The NHS in England is seeking to establish a Framework Agreement which identifies the providers of medical and healthcare related published content, products and services.

The Framework Agreement will list the providers and agreements from whom the NHS and its partners can purchase with confidence and without the need for full competitive tendering. Potential providers are invited to bid for one or more content categories to include; print and electronic journals and books; databases and aggregated evidence summaries resources.

Interested parties can find further information and instructions in the OJEU notice published on Tenders Electronic Direct at http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:352379-2011:TEXT:EN:HTML

The NHS in England is responsible for commissioning, planning, delivering, managing and evaluating healthcare; and for promoting public health. Its core functions include patient care, education and research. A complex organisation comprising many separate bodies, it seeks to work in partnership with other organisations to fulfil its objectives.

To support these objectives, the organisations that make up the NHS, and their partners, invest a significant amount in information resources. It is seen to be vital to ensure that this investment of taxpayers' funds delivers value for money, not only for individual organisations, but for the NHS as a whole. The aims is to ensure that the diverse, dispersed and specialist staff groups engaged in health and social care have access to the information resources they need, at the point they need them.

They were assessed by a jury of 40 consisting of former Fulbright Scholars, academic journal editors and other discipline-specific experts. Their assessment was based on publication and citation information provided by SciVerse Scopus, Elsevier's abstract and citation database.

The jury also selected three institutions to be presented with the 2011 Scopus Fostering Young Researchers Institutional Award. The Universities of Manchester, Oxford and Southampton will receive this award for having trained 11 of the shortlisted candidates.

US NLM unveils enhancement of drug naming standard for EHRs - 23 Nov 2011

The US' National Library of Medicine (NLM) has enhanced the Drug Naming Standard for Electronic Health Records. The RxNorm standard clinical drug vocabulary produced by the NLM is now said to contain more accurate and complete connections between National Drug Codes (NDCs) and standard non-proprietary names of medications recommended for use in electronic health records (EHRs). NLM, a component of the National Institutes of Health, claims to be the world's largest medical library.

The RxNorm includes, for the first time, the complete set of NDCs from Thomson Reuters' Red Book, a drug database widely used in the healthcare industry. NDCs are product identifiers assigned by manufacturers and packagers of drugs in the US.

Accurate and complete connections between NDC product codes and RxNorm standard names and identifiers are seen to have many potential uses within an individual patient's EHR. These include the use of an NDC on a medicine bottle to speed standard data entry or to trigger an alert written in the RxNorm standard that could prevent a medication error.

The Red Book is expected to provide RxNorm with better linkages between branded drugs and their NDCs, information about whether or not drugs are still on the market, and Drug Enforcement Agency Class for controlled drugs. This additional information is instrumental in the production of the Current Prescribable Subset of RxNorm.
