US Thomson Reuters announces the world's most influential scientific minds - 18 Jan 2016

The Intellectual Property (IP) and Science business of Thomson Reuters, has announced the release of 'The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds,' a citation analysis identifying the scientists - as determined by their fellow researchers - who have made the most significant global impact within their respective field of study.

The two-part study includes an 11 year assessment of research paper citations to determine the leaders within 21 broad fields of science and a ranking of 2015's top scientists or 'hottest researchers,' revealing significant growth in cancer genomics and improvements in converting solar cells into renewable energy.

The report draws on data and analysis performed by Thomson Reuters IP & and Science bibliometric experts via InCites™ Essential Science Indicators℠, a leading web-based research analytics platform and a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science™, the premier web-based environment for scientific and scholarly research.

The longer-range study, widely known as the Highly Cited Researchers, recognises nearly 3,000 scientists who published the greatest number of articles ranking among the top one percent by citations received in their respective fields in each paper's year of publication. Analysts assessed more than 120,000 papers indexed between 2003 and 2013 throughout each area of study.

The 2015 hottest researchers ranking spotlights the scientific community's emerging trends and 19 innovators, who recently published at least 14 papers with notably high levels of citations. The list was identified by tabulating citations within the Web of Science recorded during calendar year 2014 for papers published between 2012 and 2014.

Stacey B. Gabriel of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard tops the list for the second consecutive year for her contributions to the Cancer Genome Atlas project, providing molecular portraits of tumors afflicting the breast, lung and other areas of the body. Her most recent papers examine the genetic underpinnings of schizophrenia and Alzheimer's. She is followed by newcomer, Oxford University's Henry J. Snaith, a physics and material scientist for his work on perovskite solar cells to advance solar energy technology.

US bioRxiv preprints can now be submitted directly to leading research journals - 18 Jan 2016

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has announced that authors of manuscripts posted on its preprint server bioRxiv can now submit their papers directly to several leading research journals, avoiding the need for reloading files and re-entering information at the journal's website.

The first journals to participate in this initiative are Biophysical Journal, eLife, The EMBO Journal, EMBO Molecular Medicine, EMBO Reports, G3:Genes/Genomes/Genetics, Genetics, Genome Research, and Molecular Systems Biology. Direct submission to Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America will also soon be available.

Since its launch in November 2013, bioRxiv has received nearly 3000 manuscripts, covering the full spectrum of biomedical science. The manuscript submission rate doubled between May and December 2015. Posting to the service and reading its contents costs nothing. Manuscripts are not peer-reviewed before posting, but their authors often receive community feedback, through onsite commenting, social media, or direct email, and 30% of authors post revised versions of their papers. Most manuscripts submitted to bioRxiv are eventually published in peer-reviewed journals.
