US HighWire Pressí John Sack, to host Keith Gigliello of the American Society of Hematology in first webinar on article-level insights and strategic publishing decisions - 26 Jul 2016

John Sack, Founding Director, HighWire Press, and Keith Gigliello, Senior Manager, Digital Publications, American Society of Hematology, will discuss delivering the answers to questions that publishing teams and editorial boards ask and what curiosity can uncover with article level metrics in a webinar on August 9. The webinar 'How to discover article-level impact and strategic insights with Impact Vizor' is scheduled for 12pm EDT on August 9, 2016. Free registration is available at: http://bit.ly/29vXY43.

Today, better, faster access to newer article-level metrics and alternative metrics (ALMs) can provide more insight into publishing programs and inform strategic decisions. For example, understanding how rapidly after publication research articles are cited, downloaded, saved, or shared can help publishers to understand how their articles, sections and journal programs resonate with different audiences and attract new audiences.

Publishing and editorial decisions can be informed, verified, and evaluated with evidence from article-level performance analysis. John and Keith will discuss how effective visual analysis can not only replace time-consuming data manipulation, but enable publishers to not miss important insights, and identify opportunities progressive publishers and editorial boards are looking for.

UK Future Science Groupís new article looks to provide clear definitions of 3D printing terms for the bioengineering community - 26 Jul 2016

Publisher Future Science Group (FSG) has announced the publication of a new article in Future Science OA looking to identify and define key terms associated with bioinks and bioprinting.

The use of 3D printing technologies for medical applications is a relatively new and rapidly expanding field, and is being approached in a multi-disciplinary manner. This has led to overlapping and ambiguous definitions within the field as a whole, and confusion over some terms, for example the prefix of 'bio-'. This new piece from William Whitford (GE Healthcare Life Sciences, USA) and James B. Hoying (Advanced Solutions Life Sciences, USA) introduces common definitions for 3D bioprinting-related terms, putting them into context. Terms defined within the article include 3D and 4D printing, bioadditive manufacturing, biofabrication, biomanufacturing, bioprinting, biomimetic printing and bioinks, among others.

The article is available free to read at: http://www.future-science.com/doi/full/10.4155/fsoa-2016-0044.
