Netherland Elsevier and ICPSR announce data linking between research articles and datasets - 09 Feb 2016

STM publisher Elsevier and the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), a leader in providing curated research data to the behavioral and social science community, have implemented two-way linking between research articles and datasets.

Over 400 Elsevier journals will offer direct linking options with datasets in ICPSR. These behavioral and social science datasets become discoverable through corresponding research articles on ScienceDirect. This allows researchers to access underlying research data immediately while reading the research paper, and potentially reuse the data for their own experiments. Vice versa, research articles on ScienceDirect can also be accessed directly from within the ICPSR datasets providing additional information to place the data into context.

ICPSR stores, curates, and provides access to scientific data so others can reuse it or validate research findings. ICPSR maintains over 9,200 studies associated with nearly 73,000 datasets representing over 40 scientific fields and disciplines. Linking these datasets and corresponding documentation to the articles using these data for analyses is critical in the effort to support research transparency and encourage additional research discovery.

Article-data linking is one of the pillars of Elsevier's initiatives for sharing research data. Elsevier collaborates with more than fifty data repositories, and is continually looking to collaborate with other relevant organisations.

US AAP joins other US creative industries urging the US government for sustained engagement with China and Canada - 09 Feb 2016

The Association of American Publishers (AAP) joined with other US creative industries, whose products and services are protected by copyright laws, to ask the US government for sustained engagement with Canada and China, among other markets. The submission by the International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) on behalf of the copyright-based industries was made in response to the 2016 Special 301 inquiry by the U.S. Trade Representative.

Among priority concerns for publishers and learning companies is the continuing deterioration of the educational publishing market in Canada as a result of the overly broad exception to copyright for educational materials under the country's Copyright Modernization Act.

The IIPA submission identifies copyright and market access concerns in 17 countries and recommends a designation of the Ukraine as a priority foreign country, the placement of six nations on the Priority Watch List, and nine more on USTR's Watch List. AAP endorses IIPA's recommendations and urges the US government to heighten engagement with Canada and China to address the deficiencies in their copyright protection and enforcement regimes, particularly as they affect the publishing sector.

UK ProQuest partners with St. Andrews University to advance early modern area research - 09 Feb 2016

ProQuest is collaborating with the Universal Short Title Catalogue (USTC) at St. Andrews University in Scotland to leverage the USTC to improve access and discoverability of materials essential to researchers of the early modern era.

USTC is a fast-growing, online analytical database of books published from the first age of print through 1601. The database of 364,000 bibliographical items identifies the physical location of surviving copies throughout the world. In June 2016 USTC coverage will be extended to 1650, doubling the size of the resource. ProQuest will use the database to identify the location of collections that can be digitised and made available to researchers through the continuously growing number of volumes in its Early European Books (EEB) collections.

Created in conjunction with academics specialising in early modern literature, the USTC database is funded by grants, including a recent award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, enabling the project to continue through 2018. The database catalogues all books relevant to the era and notes where those copies can be found throughout the world, an invaluable tool for ProQuest to locate those partners to work with in preserving these rare materials by digitising them.

EEB collections 1 to 8 offer approximately 14 million pages and over 45,000 curated items from four National Libraries across Europe including the Wellcome Trust in London. This valuable corpus of material covers over 35 subject areas, reflecting the breadth and importance of the Early Modern Period as the intellectual foundation of contemporary thought. The EEB collections provide an impactful multi-disciplinary and unique resource to libraries for research and teaching Courses in Philosophy, Religion, Politics, Social Science, Medicine and more.

US Wolters Kluwer experts to discuss ICD-10 lessons learned and best practices in upcoming complimentary webinar - 09 Feb 2016

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that medical informatics experts from Health Language® will host a complimentary webinar to discuss best practices and lessons learned from the industry's mammoth transition to ICD-10. Scheduled for February 9, 2016 at 1 p.m. EST, the event will provide insight into common ICD-10 clinical documentation challenges following the October 2015 go-live and solutions for improving reimbursement, reporting and patient tracking.

The webinar is designed to arm healthcare professionals who submit codes for reimbursement—including physicians, HIM managers and financial consultants—with the best-practice knowledge needed to enhance clinical documentation improvement programs. Kate Tierney, Lead Clinical Analyst, and Katie Sutton, Clinical Informatics Manager, will present documentation tips that reduce financial risk and improve specificity as well as explain the potential pitfalls of relying solely on industry crosswalks such as General Equivalency Mappings (GEMs). Drawing on 50 combined years in coding and clinical experience, the presenters will educate attendees on specific nuances and differences between ICD-9 and ICD-10 including use of encounter types in the new coding system.

Experts will also lead a discussion on how to leverage Health Language claims analytics solutions and mapping capabilities to drive informed business decisions and streamline ICD-10 remediation efforts. Through a foundation of analytics, users can identify and stratify DRG shifts and payment variance risks and pinpoint opportunities for clinical documentation improvement. The Health Language team of experts works with healthcare organisations to develop remediation plans and provide terminology (such as CPT-to-PCS) maps that can help remediate legacy systems, enable ICD-10 reports and analytics initiatives and develop effective risk mitigation strategies.
