US CHORUS and JST sign Japan Dashboard agreement - 02 Oct 2017

Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) has signed a Japan Dashboard agreement with CHORUS to monitor public accessibility of content reporting on JST-funded research. The agreement comes after a successful pilot project that began in July 2016.

A ceremony marking this milestone was held at Rockefeller University on September 15, where a fully executed and countersigned version of the agreement and a token of appreciation were presented to Yasushi Ogasaka, Director of Database for Information and Knowledge Infrastructure, JST, on behalf of the CHORUS Board of Directors.

According to Susan King, Executive Director of Rockefeller University Press and Chair of the CHORUS Board of Directors, the Japan Dashboard Service was a first step in the globalisation of the services that CHORUS provides.

The JST agreement is CHORUS’ first international agency agreement. One of the most prolific research environments in the world, Japan ranks fifth in published papers.

US Cambridge University Press’ digitised content included in Yewno’s knowledge discovery product - 02 Oct 2017

Cambridge University Press and Yewno partner to include over 1.5 million Cambridge University Press journal articles and 44,000 eBooks in Yewno’s visual knowledge discovery product for students and researchers.

Yewno Discover will now be enhanced by the inclusion of Cambridge University Press’ full digitised academic content. Over the last 2 years, the knowledge discovery product has benefited from the inclusion of Cambridge University Press journal articles. Yewno’s relationship with the Press has now deepened with the inclusion of their full digital content, as the Discover product continues to prove its potential as a vital tool for researchers and students.

Yewno Discover maps over 600 million semantic connections among concepts that are extracted from the full text of academic content provided. Those connections link to over 120 million articles, books, and database assets. Easily navigating the intuitive platform, users search concepts and connections between concepts, engaging in serendipitous and lateral interdisciplinary discovery, and uncovering key resources in each area. Discover was developed not only with consideration of the ‘how’ of discovery, but crucially, of the ‘why’. The tool was developed for the Education sector to transform the research experience into creative, organic discovery; inviting users to be more curious and explore more deeply.

Yewno welcomes further content from a wide range of academic and professional sources and encourages contact from Publishers and content providers to discuss how Yewno might help improve their discoverability through the Discover platform.

US ABIM MOC assessments feature access to UpToDate - 02 Oct 2017

Beginning in 2018, physicians will be able to access UpToDate® - an online, evidence-based clinical decision support resource - during American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) assessments.

UpToDate will be the first online resource available during traditional MOC exams physicians take every 10 years, as well as ABIM's new, shorter MOC assessment option - called Knowledge Check-Ins - that physicians can take every two years from their home or workplace.

Physicians taking either of these assessment options will be able to access UpToDate in real time during the assessment, better reflecting how they look up clinical guidelines and evidence in practice.

More than 800 doctors participated in a separate research study to help ABIM determine the feasibility and impact of incorporating electronic resources into traditional MOC exams. The results indicated that having access to resources reduced physicians' anxiety about the exam and that the open-book option actually enhanced the exam's capacity to differentiate between high and low performances. In addition, 90 percent of physicians who participated in a survey following the study indicated that they use UpToDate in practice.

UpToDate will first be incorporated into ABIM's Internal Medicine and Nephrology Knowledge Check-Ins and Internal Medicine and Nephrology traditional MOC exams in 2018. Access will continue to expand to other specialty assessments through 2018 and 2019. In the future, ABIM will continue to explore incorporating additional resources into MOC assessments.

Chin will complete the term of her former colleague, Laurie Locascio, who resigned from the board after taking a new professional position.

NIST is a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce that advances measurement science, standards, and technology. Chin has served in her role since 2013, having previously served as a materials research engineer, supervisory materials research engineer, and program analyst. She joined NIST in 1995.

With a background in research at Gould Inc., Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and NIST’s Materials and Structural Systems Division, Chin has worked on fiber-reinforced polymeric composites used in infrastructure and on polymeric material service-life prediction and durability.

In addition to ASTM International, Chin is a member of the American Chemical Society and has previously served on the Structural Composites Committee of the Transportation Research Board. ASTM’s board of directors is made up of 25 leaders from an array of companies, associations, and government bodies worldwide. Several members are based outside the US.
