US Elsevier launches eight new biomaterials and biomedical engineering books - 05 Oct 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced the publication of Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts by Brian Love. By focusing on the mechanical needs of implants, disease states and current clinical needs, this inventive text encourages readers to design materials and systems targeted at specific conditions, and to identify the impact of their proposed solutions. Elsevier also published seven additional biomaterials and biomedical engineering books.

Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts is a useful resource for students, instructors and researchers of biomaterials and biomedical engineering. It covers topics such as cell biology principles; cell expression; bones and mineralised tissues; connective and soft tissues; metallic biomaterials; ceramic biomaterials; and polymeric biomaterials.

Dr. Brian Love is professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Dental and Biologic Materials at the University of Michigan, USA, where he heads a research group currently working on biomaterials and molecular and cellular biomechanics. He has held appointments at Virginia Tech, Wake Forest School for Biomedical Engineering, Georgetown School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology, and has worked as an engineer for Texas Instruments. Dr. Love is on the editorial board of two international journals and was on the Dean's list for Teaching Excellence (based on student perceptions at Virginia Tech) in 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2004. He also was nominated for the WL Wine Award for Teaching Excellence in 2007.

The eight new biomaterials and biomedical engineering titles are: Biomaterials: A Systems Approach to Engineering Concepts by Brian Love; Nanobiomaterials: Nanostructured Materials for Biomedical Applications, edited by Roger Narayan; Characterization of Polymeric Biomaterials, edited by Maria Cristina Tanzi and Silvia Farè; Biomedical Composites, Second Edition, edited by Luigi Ambrosio; Bioactive Glasses: Materials, Properties and Applications, Second Edition, edited by Heimo Ylänen; Biomaterials for Oral and Dental Tissue Engineering, edited by Lobat Tayebi and Keyvan Moharamzadeh; Electrospun Materials for Tissue Engineering and Biomedical Applications: Research, Design and Commercialization, edited by Tamer Uyar and Erich Kny; and Functionalised Cardiovascular Stents, edited by J. Gerard Wall, Halina Podbielska and Magdalena Wawrzynska.

In order to meet content needs in biomaterials and biomedical engineering, 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 will educate the next generation of biomaterials and biomedical scientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals.

France EDP Sciences announces the launch of Emergent Scientist, a new OA publication for science students - 05 Oct 2017

EDP Sciences has announced the recent launch of Emergent Scientist, an innovative new open access journal that puts young scientists at its heart. The journal was born out of the 2016 International Physicists' Tournament (IPT), and is supported by the French Physics Society and the French Academy of Science.

Emergent Scientist offers young scientists at the beginning of their careers, the opportunity to discover peer-reviewed publishing and the publication process. The journal will especially serve those junior scientists who may not pursue a career in research, but become engineers, analysts, consultants or the like – as they will rarely get the opportunity to experience the peer review process once they have left their academic studies.

As with any other academic journal, Emergent Scientist will receive manuscripts, ask referees to review them, supervise their revision by the authors, and publish them once they reach a satisfactory level of scientific quality. The journal does not expect authors to exhibit groundbreaking results, but to show exemplary scientific rigour and clarity in the way they tackle a problem and report their findings.

The first articles are available at https://emergent-scientist.edp-open.org. While Emergent Scientist is currently physics oriented, the intention is for the scope to be broadened as soon as possible to include subjects such as mathematics and the life sciences.

German World of Learning at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2017 - 05 Oct 2017

The international educational sector will be making an innovative, multifaceted and digital appearance at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2017 under the title "World of Learning".

Highlights in Hall 4.2 will include Sofa talks and workshops on the future of learning in "World of Learning Lab." At the weekend, together with interested private visitors, experts such as Jens Mönig (SAP), Armin Himmelrath (SPIEGEL Online), Oliver Rohrbeck (Die Drei ???), the German Library Association, Jugend Hackt and the Chaos Computer Club will present topics such as fake news, coding and adaptive learning. One special event will be a virtual dive at a coral reef using VR goggles. This interactive ideas laboratory on the future of learning is being organised by the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG) in Hall 4.2 N 75.

Who is behind the more than 39 million articles in the world's largest encyclopaedia? At the book fair, visitors can watch firsthand as international Wikipedia authors go to work. Authors will be photographed in a professional photo studio, and new articles and translations will appear during the German-French "Ediathon".

Over five days, bloggers from the Berlin-based Blogfabrik (Hall 4.2 A 80) will be giving workshops and presentations on the skills needed in the digital sphere. At Hate Speech Bingo, which will take place on Sunday on the stage in Hall 4.2 C 96, participants will examine sexist, racist and homophobic posts in the web. Network activists will present “Best of Hate” selections and discuss strategies for dealing with Internet trolls.

At the weekend, the book fair will be transformed into a pop-up campus, which will kick off on Saturday at 9:30 am with a breakfast, open to everyone, at the ILC Café, 4.2 N 75. As of Saturday at 10:30 am, publishers will be presenting a multifaceted programme for students on the stage of the Hot Spot Professional & Scientific Information (Halle 4.2 N 99). It all begins at 10:00 am with science slammer and chemist Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim ("The Secret Life of Scientists") known from numerous appearances on YouTube and radio (ARD and ZDF). The programme will be accompanied by a range of activities at the stands of participating exhibitors.

Additionally, cabaret performer Martin Puntigam, astronomer Florian Freistetter and microbiologist Helmut Jungwirth will answer fundamental questions about life on earth. In their cabaret performance, the Science Busters demonstrate that science and humour actually go hand in hand - experiments included. Time and place: Saturday, 14 October 2017, 3:30–4:30 pm, Hall 4.2 C 96.

US JAMA Network set to launch new online general medical journal - JAMA Network Open - 05 Oct 2017

The JAMA Network will launch a new online general medical journal, JAMA Network Open, in early 2018. The new journal will publish peer-reviewed, fully open-access clinical research across all medical disciplines. 'Open access' is free, immediate, online availability of research articles that permits others to access, read and reuse the content.

The weekly journal will be the 13th journal in The JAMA Network, which includes JAMA and 11 other specialty journals. The newest journal follows the launch of JAMA Oncology in 2015 and JAMA Cardiology in 2016, which are hybrid journals offering open access for research articles.

The founding editor-in-chief of JAMA Network Open will be Dr. Frederick P. Rivara, now editor-in-chief of JAMA Pediatrics. Dr. Rivara is Seattle Children's Guild Endowed Chair in Pediatrics, professor of pediatrics and adjunct professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington.

Medical journals and publishing have changed over the past two decades and open access publishing has risen to prominence with the goal of making research findings available worldwide. Many funders also now require that authors publish their research in open-access journals, Dr. Rivara and his colleagues noted.

The move comes after a period - between 2008 and 2016 - when major article publications indexed in the Web of Science rose 38 percent and the number of research-article acceptances in JAMA Network journals dropped 23 percent.

The new, general medical journal will feature health content from more than 40 medical and health subject areas, including anesthesiology, critical care medicine, health informatics, pathology and laboratory medicine, rheumatology, and substance use and addiction. About a quarter of articles published in JAMA Network Open will be accompanied by invited opinion pieces commenting on the newly published research. The journal will follow the same rigorous peer review, editorial and publishing standards as the other JAMA Network journals.
