US Thomson Reuters’ new evidence-based solution provides a curated insight into patient genomics - 03 Jun 2016

The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters has announced the launch of Precision Medicine Intelligence, a new evidence-based solution dedicated to helping scientists and physicians understand and keep pace with the rapid growth of scientific and medical literature.

The announcement was made at the 2016 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, an annual gathering of over 30,000 oncology professionals from around the world, held at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

The Thomson Reuters Precision Medicine Intelligence provides a structured database of evidence-based clinical outcomes designed to empower concise, accurate and clinically meaningful interpretation of molecular test results. This helps users to keep up to date with genomics knowledge to validate and interpret relevant variant associations, translating the complexity of gene data into clinically actionable insights. Precision Medicine Intelligence also supports patient segment definition and stratification for clinical research, accelerating drug development to ultimately drive new research and clinical development strategies.

The solution, which is delivered via an API and through partner platforms, integrates intelligence from a wide variety of global sources, including full text peer-reviewed journals, clinical guidelines, clinical trials and regulatory drug approvals. Drawing on Thomson Reuters' decades of expertise in curating trusted scientific content for professionals, Precision Medicine Intelligence provides manually selected content in the following areas: Variants; Clinical Trials; Drugs; and Gene Biomarkers.

UK New OCLC report provides insight into remarkable collections held in the UK research libraries - 03 Jun 2016

Global library cooperative OCLC and Research Libraries UK (RLUK), a consortium of major research libraries in the UK and Ireland, have announced the publication of a new report that provides a first-of-its-kind perspective on the scope, depth, and duplication present across RLUK library collections, and highlights the opportunities and challenges of managing these collections as a shared asset.

The report, Strength in Numbers: The Research Libraries UK (RLUK) Collective Collection, extends a growing body of evidence that highlights the importance of a system-wide perspective in supporting cooperative management of institutional assets like library collections.

The report describes the salient features of the RLUK collective collection – the combined collections of the RLUK member libraries – with a special emphasis on print book holdings. The findings from the report will inform strategic planning within the RLUK membership in regard to deeper cooperation around long-term collection management - particularly with regards to preservation and storage, the potential role of digital alternatives for print materials, and how library space can be used most effectively.

According to the findings of the report the RLUK collective collection encompasses 29.4 million distinct publications of all types, including 20.9 million distinct print book publications. Print books in RLUK member collections reflect a rich global diversity, with 467 languages and 254 countries of publication represented. Rareness is common in the RLUK collective collection, with relatively small levels of overlap across RLUK member collections adding scope and depth to the collective resource. Further, the report notes that nearly 460,000 distinct subjects are associated with the print book publications in the RLUK collective collection, with a variety of particular subject strengths distributed across the RLUK membership.

The RLUK collective collection is both similar to and distinct from the collective collection of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL): for example, a significant portion (42 percent) of the RLUK print book collection overlaps with the ARL collection, but an even larger portion (58 percent) does not.

Universities are increasingly seeking above-campus solutions to shared operating needs. Research libraries that support universities and other higher education institutions are likewise moving towards cooperative management models to increase efficiency and enable the ongoing evolution of library services. The findings in the report reflect OCLC Research’s unique data and analytical capacities, as well as the institutional expertise and perspective of the RLUK members.

UK BioMed Central expands collaboration with Peerage of Science - 03 Jun 2016

Open access publisher BioMed Central has announced that it is expanding collaboration with Peerage of Science, an innovative independent submission and peer review service.

Four more journals join the list of four previously listed BioMed Central destinations, becoming available for authors directly inside the Peerage of Science peer review system. Furthermore, the editors also gain full access to all ongoing peer review processes, and are able to pro-actively invite submissions of suitable uncommitted manuscripts; in Peerage of Science a manuscript is not exclusive to any single journal until authors choose to commit it to one destination, which typically happens after the peer review.

Peerage of Science is an independent scientific submission and peer review service, introducing several innovative practices to the academic publishing process. Among the core solutions are Open Engagement of peer reviewers by their own choice, Cross-Evaluation of peer reviews by other peers, and Concurrent Consideration of a single peer review process by participating journals.

Peerage of Science is free for scientists, and offers compelling new solutions to academic publishers and other organisations that need high-quality peer review for their operations. The Select -service allowing editorial access into the system currently includes 37 journal destinations, while The Connect -service allows authors to export their work exclusively to over 3000 destinations. Peerage of Science is supported by University of Jyväskylä, University of Eastern Finland, and University of Turku.

US Consumer Wellness Center launches new open source science journal - Natural Science Journal - 03 Jun 2016

Non-profit Consumer Wellness Center has announced the launch of a new peer-reviewed journal on food and environmental science. The journal, Natural Science Journal, focuses on independent science pursued by laboratories and scientists who have no financial ties to pharmaceutical companies, agribusiness giants or government funding sources.

The Natural Science Journal is a free, open source science journal available for immediate download as a PDF document.

Publisher and founder of the journal, Mike Adams, is an independent scientist and laboratory science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) food and environmental science lab. Adams, who also serves as the executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center, says that science needs to be "democratized" and placed back into the hands of the people instead of being dominated by corporate interests.

The first scientific paper published in the journal looks at lead contamination in municipal water supplies across America. Entitled, 'ICP-MS analysis of toxic elements (heavy metals) in 100 crowd-sourced municipal water samples from across the United States,' the paper reveals dangerous levels of lead and other heavy metals found in water samples taken across America.

Future issues of the Natural Science Journal will cover mercury contamination of pet treats, excessive copper in children vitamins, toxic pesticides in fresh produce and alarmingly high levels of cadmium in organic protein supplements.

All issues of the journal are available for free, as they are published, at NaturalScienceJournal.com
