UK London Info International 2016 speaker insights - 23 Nov 2016

In just over a week many members of the information community will gather at London’s ExCeL to experience a brand new and exciting conference and exhibition. The intersection between information and data, the rise of the user, and the need for the information industry to demonstrate value, are all key themes at the inaugural London Info International 2016 Conference. Search, social media and the ways to reach new users are also part of the agenda.

According to Vincent Cassidy, Conference Co-Chair, LII 2016, this event brings together important and representative voices of research funders, the library community, commercial publishers and start-ups who are all seeking to help research and researchers. This conference will help all participants both to reflect on the current dynamic and help shape future direction.

This is what few of the main speakers have been saying…

'The distinction publishers make between content and data is anachronistic and limiting,' says Timo Hannay, Founder SchoolDash and one of the speakers at the event. 'It's all information - and information of every kind is our trade.' He has these words of advice for the information industry, 'think broadly about your role - publishing is not just about publications, it's about information. Be prepared to acquire new organisational skills, especially relating to technology. Observe the behaviour and attitudes of the best technology companies, big and small.'

Timo is speaking at LII 2016 at 2:00pm – 3:30pm on Wednesday, December 7th.

John Hammersley, Co-founder & CEO of Overleaf, is one of an illustrious group of industry experts talking about the 'rise of the user' that includes David Worlock, Jan Reichelt of Mendeley and Jason Markos of John Wiley & Sons.

Global research and collaboration continues to grow at an astonishing rate,' John says. 'This is excellent for science but can prove to be challenging for researchers and institutions. Many areas of technology are moving to an on-demand economy, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) has been a rapidly developing industry over the past decade, with global sales growing from $10Bn in 2010 to more than double this today. Users continue to expect more and more services to provide real-time feedback and fast, effective solutions to their problems.'

John is speaking at LII 2016 at 2:00pm – 3:00pm on Tuesday, December 6th.

Social media gives an opportunity to libraries, especially in academia, to get a better and closer relationship with their users, notes Ertugrul Cimen, Library Director at MEF University. During his talk, delegates will learn how libraries and users are affected by social media and the possible risks and benefits of social media usage in libraries.

This session also includes talks from Christine Goodair, Website Officer for the Society for the Study of Addiction - looking at Twitter - and Matt Horne, the Digital Marketing and Social Media Officer at Newcastle University whose focus is on Snapchat and the new generation of social.

Ertugrul is speaking at LII 2016 at 11:30am – 12:30am on Wednesday, December 7th.

Reaching users is also the topic of the talk from Oliver Renn, Head of Chemistry and Biology of Pharmacy Information Centre, ETH Zurich in day one's New world, new approaches session. Oliver believes social media should be combined with face-to-face techniques to engage users. According to Oliver, the information community, especially those who are developing new tools and gadgets, naturally think that those who are supposed to use the cool new things are as informed and excited as they are. This is often not the case, both in academia and industry but can be changed.'

Oliver is speaking at LII 2016 at 2:00pm – 3:00pm on Tuesday, December 6th.

These are just a few of the leading speakers that can be seen in London on December 6th and 7th. A few places are still available. To find out more go to Londoninfointernational.com and to register to attend the conference go to http://londoninfointernational.com/book-your-place/.

As a global leader in education and innovation, the CNS is dedicated to advancing the field of neurosurgery by inspiring and facilitating scientific discovery and its translation to members' clinical practice. The CNS chose to partner with OUP because of its outstanding reputation, established partnerships, and extensive experience co-publishing other scientific journals.

Featuring original, peer-reviewed articles, Neurosurgery is the fastest-growing journal in the field, with a worldwide reputation for reliable coverage delivered with a fresh and dynamic outlook. Neurosurgery attracts contributions from the most respected international authorities and presents the latest in clinical and experimental neurosurgery. Applicable to both researchers and practicing neurosurgeons, the journal includes a wealth of valuable, in-depth information that is applicable to researchers and practicing neurosurgeons alike.

ONS is a unique publication focusing exclusively on surgical technique and devices, providing practical, cutting-edge, and skill-enhancing guidance to its readers. Complementing the clinical and research studies published in Neurosurgery, ONS brings the reader technical material that highlights operative procedures, anatomy, instrumentation, devices, and technology.

US Haymarket Media partners with Decision Support in Medicine for deeper user engagement - 23 Nov 2016

Haymarket Media Inc has formed a partnership with Decision Support in Medicine (DSM) to integrate the DSM clinical decision support content into the 13 brands within the Haymarket Medical Network.

The DSM database covers thousands of diseases in multiple therapeutic categories, written by physician experts in each field of medicine. The information is updated regularly to inform healthcare professionals (HCPs) with what they need to know before, during, and after a patient consult. Every disease-specific section offers step-by-step recommendations and succinct direction on screening, diagnosis, and treatments—all of which is supported by the latest evidence-based data. Each section in the DSM database discusses the screening, presentation, differential diagnosis, pathophysiology, recommended testing, treatment options and information for the patient and caregivers.

With this partnership, Haymarket intends to provide the HCPs that visit the brands in the Haymarket Medical Network with a more robust and comprehensive offering of clinical information when they are engaged with news and features about the same disease. The DSM material will be integrated within relevant content on each of the Network’s websites, where HCPs can navigate through this reference material and benefit from a deeper scope of clinical data without leaving the brand’s website. The expectation is that by supplementing Haymarket’s content with a thorough reference like DSM, HCPs will be able to access quick and concise clinical data and more efficiently treat their patients.

US Ringgold maps over 11,000 Open Funder Registry IDs to its Identify Database - 23 Nov 2016

Ringgold, an ISNI Registration Agency, has mapped more than 11,000 Open Funder Registry IDs to its Identify Database of over 440,000 organizational records. The addition of the Funder IDs provides interoperability between the two datasets.

By mapping Funder IDs to Ringgold's Identify Database, organisations and publishers managing Article Processing Charges (APCs) for Open Access journals will be able to fully automate the APC calculations for authors, funders, and institutions from a single source. Furthermore, Ringgold customers will be able to readily identify funders from within the universe of organisational records in Identify.

According to Jay Henry, Chief Marketing Officer at Ringgold, the inclusion of the Funder IDs provides Ringgold customers with the ability to accurately identify funders, and associate the full Ringgold metadata with those institutions. This opens a new dimension of linked data to further improve analysis of a shared ecosystem.
