US Elsevier and the Association of Academic Health Centers partner to launch first program of the AAHC Thought Leadership Institute - 07 Apr 2016

STM publisher Elsevier and the globally-recognized Association of Academic Health Centers (AAHC) have announced the launch of the first program offering of the AAHC Thought Leadership Institute, an innovative new concept designed to provide a forum for provocative and inspiring thought leaders from diverse backgrounds, disciplines and sectors, to identify transformative ideas and discuss their applications. The first Institute program, to be launched in April and supported by Elsevier, will be Professional Intelligence: Medicine, Machines, and the Future of Healthcare, and will focus on the growing interface of medicine and artificial intelligence - specifically "smart" machines.

The Institute will concentrate on substantive, future-oriented topics. Its purpose is to advance ideas through inspired thinking; seize opportunities by bringing together leaders on each issue who can make a difference; and drive reform by promoting creative ideas that can flourish into productive, tangible solutions. AAHC strives to be the global thought leader on issues impacting academic health centers and their tripartite mission: educating the next generation of health professionals, conducting biomedical research, and providing patient care.

A Leadership Council, composed of AAHC members and thought leaders, will provide knowledge and expertise in guiding the development of The Institute.

UK Journal of Medical Case Reports’ new resource to guide clinicians on how to use and write case reports - 07 Apr 2016

The Journal of Medical Case Reports will publish a valuable resource for clinicians in the form of special series of editorials, offering a guide to best practice for writing and using case reports.

All the articles will be free to read immediately upon publication and available to researchers, clinicians and policymakers, as the journal is an open access journal.

The series includes case reports in medical education: a platform for training medical students, residents, and fellows in scientific writing and critical thinking; how to apply clinical cases and medical literatures in the framework of a modified "failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)" as a clinical reasoning tool - an illustration using the human biliary system; how to apply a case report in clinical practice on the example of the trigemino-cardiac reflex: A way for thinking models?; how to review a case report; how to write a neurology case report; how to write a case report in nephrology; and when to write a neurology case report.

Another valuable publication in the journal for reference when writing and using case reports is “A guide to writing case reports for the Journal of Medical Case Reports and BioMed Central Research Notes", which was published in 2013 and written by Richard Rison.

The series can be found here.

US American Academy of Pediatrics adopts Sheridan’s XML-based article workflow, Article ExpressTM, for Pediatrics journal - 07 Apr 2016

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is utilising Sheridan's proprietary XML-based article workflow, Article Express™, for their industry-leading journal, Pediatrics.

Pediatrics is the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The monthly peer-reviewed publication is the most cited journal in the field and among the top 100 most-cited journals in all of science and medicine. It has been continuously published by the AAP since 1948.

ArticleExpress is Sheridan's new patent-pending workflow for STM publishers that replaces the traditional PDF-based article proof with a fully editable, browser-based, HTML proofing environment. In this new workflow, authors, editors, and publishers can easily review and directly edit article content in a browser application while still maintaining the structure of the underlying XML. In addition to reviewing and editing traditional article content, the HTML presentation allows authors to review online-only elements such as multi-media content, supplemental material, and a variety of linked elements.

ArticleExpress also includes a fully automated, XML-based composition system that produces a PDF for download and review, and final PDFs for print and online delivery. As changes to content are introduced, reviewed, and approved through the web-editing environment, the underlying XML is automatically updated, and revised PDF proofs are generated. So while traditional composition and proof review processes can get bogged down in rounds of proof correction and review, ArticleExpress streamlines the process completely, bringing published content to audiences more rapidly.

When AAP implemented the ArticleExpress workflow, they also launched a continuous publishing model, releasing final versions of every article as soon as they become available. Additionally, an Abstract Only print version of the publication is now available.

UK Wellcome Trust announces organisational changes - 07 Apr 2016

The Wellcome Trust, an independent global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health through science, research and engagement with society, has announced that Kevin Moses, Director of Science, will be leaving the Trust in August later this year. He is returning to the United States to become a partner of The Column Group, a venture capital firm building on novel scientific ideas from the academic sector and early stage companies. His new role will take him closer to family based in the US.

Since joining Wellcome in 2011, from the Howard Hughes Janelia Farm Research Campus in Virginia where he was Chief Academic Officer, Kevin has led a significant period of evolution for Wellcome's science funding portfolio and managed many other significant and strategic changes within the Science Division and more broadly across the organisation as a member of the Executive Board.

Kevin will continue to lead the Science Division between now and August while the search for a replacement is undertaken.

In a related announcement, it has been announced that Pharmaceutical industry expert William (Bill) Burns will join the Board of Governors of the Wellcome Trust this week.

Bill Burns has spent his entire career in the life sciences industry. He was CEO of the global Pharmaceutical Division of Roche from 2001-2009, before joining the main Roche board until 2014. Today he is a non-executive director of Shire Pharmaceuticals and Mesoblast, Vice Chairman of Vestergaard and Chairman of Biotie Therapies. In addition he serves as a trustee to the Institute of Cancer Research.
