German Radiology program of Breitenseher Publisher now available in Thieme’s eRef - 20 Jul 2017

Medical and scientific publisher Thieme has expanded its medical knowledge database eRef by the Radiology program of Breitenseher Publisher. As a result, specialist literature in radiology and related subjects are now available to the entire Breitenseher publisher's specialist knowledge in the treatment process.

The eRef Radiology license package contains the relevant specialist books and trade journals from Georg Thieme Verlag as well as an extensive media centre with illustrations, videos and podcasts. In addition, Breitenseher Publishers' highly specialised specialist literature can now be licensed in a separate package. This includes, among others, the trilogy created in cooperation with the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR): 'MRI of the Hip', 'MRI of the Knee' and 'MRI Foot & Ankle' and the standard 'Prostate - Multimodal Imaging' other titles.

The contents are sorted by eRef thematically according to diagnoses and medical circumstances and are summarised in so-called 'cockpits'. The knowledge about the subject of radiology is divided into about 1,800 cockpits. For example, the user can find the relevant information, for example on Crohn's disease, at the click of a mouse - from anatomy, diagnostics, normal findings and differential diagnoses, CT, MRI, conventional X-ray, PET and nuclear medicine to guidelines and reconnaissance bows.

The eRef is available to clinics, medical practitioners and health care institutions as required, in full or on specific areas of expertise.

Employees who work in a clinic that has licensed the eRef can create their personal account and have access to the eRef app at any time from any terminal.

US MIT Press promotes Nick Lindsay to Director, Journals and Open Access - 20 Jul 2017

The MIT Press has announced that Nick Lindsay has been promoted to Director of Journals and Open Access, effective immediately. Lindsay will be responsible for open access strategy and communications for the Press, and will put policies and procedures in place to further the Press goals in this important area.

Current MIT Press open access efforts range from participation in Knowledge Unlatched and digitising select backlist titles to be hosted on the Internet Archive, to publishing several open access journals. The suite of relevant activities has grown rapidly in recent years and expanded well beyond the boundaries of any one department at the Press. Elsewhere at MIT, the focus on open academic and teaching resources continues to grow, as evidenced by the strong recommendations regarding open scholarship within the MIT Future of Libraries report, and the creation of the MIT OA Task Force. The new role under Lindsay's direction addresses the need for consistent strategy and messaging in the approach to open digital models at the MIT Press, along with the capacity to grow open publishing partnerships at MIT and beyond.

UK ShareLaTeX join forces with Overleaf - 20 Jul 2017

Scientific writing and publishing tools provider Overleaf and ShareLaTeX have announced that they are joining forces. They will be bringing their teams and services together as they continue to build the world's best tools for collaborative writing.

Over the past 4 years, both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf have been hugely successful - seeing rapid, sustained growth in usage. The combined community comprises over two million authors at thousands of institutions and enterprises around the world, ranging from students writing up their first group projects to professional researchers collaborating on their papers, grant proposals and more. Naturally, they have always been compared and provided each other with some friendly competition, but behind the scenes, they have often been trying to figure out a way to work together.

The driving aim behind Overleaf's acquisition of ShareLaTeX is to bring the best of both editors together in a way that benefits everyone. The ShareLaTeX team has built a truly real-time collaborative editing environment, including a great new tracked changes feature, intelligent help for common LaTeX errors, and amazing resources for learning LaTeX. The Overleaf team has at the same time been busy working on its WYSIWYG editing tools for users new to LaTeX and its partnerships with journals, publishers and publisher back-end systems that enable direct submission and streamlined editorial workflows for over 10,000 journals. By working together, they can avoid duplicating their efforts as they look to achieve the same goals.
