US Elsevier publishes updated version of Petroleum Production Engineering, announces three new oil and gas industry titles for engineers and managers - 09 Mar 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of an updated version of Petroleum Production Engineering by Boyun Guo, Xinghui Liu and Xuehao Tan. The new edition addresses critical production challenges, such as flow assurance, horizontal and multi-lateral wells, and work-overs. Elsevier also announced the publication of three other oil and gas industry books.

Petroleum Production Engineering, Second Edition, guides readers from theory to practical application with the help of more than 50 online Excel spreadsheets containing basic production equations, such as gas lift potential, multilateral gas well deliverability, and production forecasting. It delivers an all-inclusive reference with real-world answers for training or quick look-up solutions for the entire petroleum production spectrum. The book is a valuable resource for production, petroleum, completion, drilling and offshore engineers, as well as workover and offshore managers.

Dr. Boyun Guo is well known for his contributions to the energy industry in multiphase flow in pipe systems and horizontal well engineering. He is currently a professor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the Petroleum Engineering Department and Director of the Center for Optimization of Petroleum Systems (COPS). Dr. Guo has more than 35 years of work experience in the oil and gas industry and academia, and has previously worked for Daqing Petroleum Administrative Bureau, New Mexico Tech, New Mexico Petroleum Recovery Research Center, and Edinburgh Petroleum Services.

Dr. Xinghui Liu is currently a senior completion engineering advisor with a major oil company, specializing in well completion and hydraulic fracturing design in shale and tight unconventional plays. He has more than 30 years of work experience, and has previously worked for Halliburton, Pinnacle, RES, Indiana University and PetroChina. Dr. Liu possesses in-depth understanding of hydraulic fracture complexities and characteristics across different shale and tight oil/gas plays.

Dr. Xuehao Tan is currently a senior modeling and simulation engineer specializing on acidizing modeling, temperature simulation in the wellbore and reservoir, applications of coiled tubing and acid fracturing. Previously, he worked for Texas A&M University as a research assistant in their petroleum engineering department. He is active in SPE and serves as technical reviewer for several journals related to production engineering. Dr. Tan has published many SPE papers on temperature simulation, acidizing modeling and related topics, and was awarded the Faculty Award of Excellence from Texas A&M University in 2013.

The four new oil and gas industry titles are: Petroleum Production Engineering, Second Edition by Boyun Guo, Xinghui Liu and Xuehao Tan; Oil Spill Science and Technology, Second Edition by Mervin Fingas; Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Reservoirs: Theories, Operations, and Economic Analysis by Hoss Belyadi, Ebrahim Fathi and Fatemeh Belyadi; and Fluid Phase Behavior for Conventional and Unconventional Oil and Gas Reservoirs by Alireza Bahadori.

In order to meet content needs in oil and gas, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of oil and gas engineers, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

German Thieme lays emphasis on importance of publishers’ role in defending the independence of science - 09 Mar 2017

Medical and scientific publisher Thieme Publishing Group strongly advocates the freedom of scientific inquiry and publication. The publisher also underlines this commitment by contributing to the current campaign launched by the German Publishers' and Booksellers' Association (Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels). In an editorial published in various English-language Thieme journals, Dr. Daniel Schiff, Senior Vice President of Thieme Group's U.S. subsidiary Thieme Publishers, stresses the key role publishers play in distributing high-quality, peer-reviewed academic information.

According to Dr. Schiff says academic publishers are responsible for coordinating the process of knowledge preparation and distribution. New scientific insights are evaluated and selected through professional review processes, including peer-review, before they are edited, didactically enhanced, and processed for publication in renowned academic journals. In addition, publishers ensure the promotion as well as systematic distribution and archiving of these results in cooperation with academic libraries and multiple other partners. In his editorial published in numerous Thieme journals, Schiff states: “In these activities we help build, protect and conserve the integrity of the corpus of scientific knowledge.”

In more than 150 journals, Thieme Publishing Group provides regular updates on the latest research and practical insights.

UK The British Institute of Radiology and Publons partner to recognise reviewers - 09 Mar 2017

The British Institute of Radiology (BIR) has announced the launch of its partnership with Publons, a free service for researchers to track, verify and showcase their reviewing and editorial contributions.

Through the partnership, experts who review for BJR can choose to instantly add a verified record of every review performed to their Publons profile, as evidence of their valuable contribution. BJR reviewers will simply opt-in to the Publons service when prompted during the review submission process.

Those who are concerned about how this might impact reviewer confidentiality need not worry. Publons provides verified credit for peer review without compromising reviewer anonymity or infringing upon journal review models. By default, only the year of the review and the journal title will be shown on reviewer profiles, unless both the journal and reviewer has actively selected an alternative setting.

Publons' mission is to speed up research by harnessing the power of great peer review. By working with publishers, institutions and researchers, Publons is turning peer review into a measurable output that can be used to demonstrate a researcher's standing, impact and influence in their field. By making peer review a rewarding activity Publons and the BIR aim to improve the quality and efficiency of both peer review and research.
