Japan Twelve scientists based in Japan recognised with the Japan Research Front Awards 2016 - 07 Jul 2016

Twelve leading scientists based in Japan have been recognised for their groundbreaking research and influential contribution to global research in eight emerging research areas, known as research fronts, with the Japan Research Front Awards 2016 organised by the Intellectual Property & Science (IP & Science) business of Thomson Reuters.

The 12 awardees were recognised as being at the forefront of eight research fronts spanning materials science, physics, engineering, chemistry and neuroscience. They were identified after their research was analysed using Research Front Methodology by IP & Science to assess their level of influence in specific scientific fields and the Web of Science Core Collection. Research Front Methodology looks at patterns of intense communication between scientists and such patterns can be used to create a picture of the state of a specific research area in terms of the papers that constitute its core of foundational work. Research Front Methodology is based on the top one percent of the most Highly Cited Papers in each of the 22 specific fields of research or disciplines in the Essential Science Indicators™ (ESI).

A total of 12,188 research fronts worldwide were surveyed from the Research Front database from 2010-2015. To identify the Japan Research Front Awardees 2016, research fronts were measured by both 1) 20 percent or more of the core papers were by researchers from Japanese institutions, and 2) one or more Hot Papers carried at least one author affiliation with a Japanese institution.

Hot Papers are a subset of Highly Cited Papers and are all less than two years old. A paper is selected as a Hot Paper if it meets a citation-frequency threshold determined for its field and bi-monthly group. Thresholds are set by finding the closest citation count that would select the top fraction of papers in each field and period. This fraction is set to retrieve about the top 0.1 percent of the papers. Based on these criteria, eight research fronts were identified with participation by Japanese researchers who authored core papers at a level approximately five times or greater than expected. Japan contributed 20 percent of papers indexed by IP & Science during this period.

This is the fourth time that the IP & Science business is honouring leading researchers in Japan to recognize the country's research excellence and how it is leading the world through innovation in selected fields. Japan held its first three research front awards in 2004, 2007 and 2012.

US The Society for Scholarly Publishing becomes Approved CAE Provider for educational programs - 07 Jul 2016

The Society for Scholarly Publishing is now a Certified Association Executive (CAE) Approved Provider. The CAE program, governed by the CAE Commission, an independent certifying body of ASAE, is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and designate association professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to manage an association in today's challenging environment.

Attendees of SSP's educational programs are now eligible to earn credits toward the CAE credential. Qualifying programs, including seminars, webinars, focus groups, Annual Meeting sessions, and some regional events, will be designated with the CAE Approved icon. Credit hours are issued in amounts equal to the length of a particular program; 1 hour of qualifying education = 1 CAE credit.

CAE Approved Providers have formally registered with the CAE program and committed to providing education that meets the CAE Commission's standards for helping individuals earn or maintain the Certified Association Executive credential.

When selecting a CAE-eligible course from a CAE Approved Provider, CAEs and CAE candidates can be confident that the course will be recognised for CAE credit as advertised. The CAE program encourages candidates and CAEs to consider qualifying courses from CAE Approved Providers to meet the professional development requirements to earn or maintain the CAE credential. The CAE program is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying.

UK Support for Altmetric badges now built into faculty profile pages powered by Profiles RNS - 07 Jul 2016

Altmetric has announced that support for Altmetric badges is now built into faculty profile pages powered by Profiles Research Networking Software (Profiles RNS). First to embed the badges in their faculty pages is the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Altmetric badges provide an at-a-glance summary of the amount and type of attention an individual research output has received online.

Profiles RNS is an NIH-funded open source tool to speed the process of finding researchers with specific areas of expertise for collaboration and professional networking, and makes it easy for institutions to create and maintain a complete searchable library of web-based electronic CVs. The addition of the Altmetric badges means that users will be able to easily access real-time attention insights for individual research outputs listed on a researcher's profile page.

Attention data is collated from a range of online sources including public policy documents, mainstream media, Wikipedia, social networks, blogs, and academic forums such as Mendeley and post-publication peer-review platforms to provide a more comprehensive picture of the online reach and influence of the research.
