India Scope creates drug monographs for a leading health portal - 08 Jan 2018

Scope e-Knowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of specialized knowledge services for publishers and information providers, has announced the successful delivery of 135 drug monographs for one of the world's leading health information portals.

Drug monographs were developed for drugs approved by the European Medicine Agency (EMA), as well as drugs not approved by the EMA but approved in selected countries outside the United States. The monographs allow users to easily evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of approved drugs.

The complex and specialised project required a very refined level of understanding of clinical pharmacology. Scope leveraged its in-house team of medical SMEs - physicians and pharmacologists - who conducted extensive research and analysis of the drugs and created monographs that would integrate with already existing monographs for the drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Therefore, the content required standardization to a particular format.

To aid in standardization, Scope's process experts built a workflow that automated components of the editorial and formatting process. For this project and those with similar requirements, Scope leverages cutting-edge technology for scale, and expertise of in-house SMEs, for accuracy. This unique hybrid approach helped Scope's team evaluate an extensive volume of relevant drug information efficiently and accurately.

Dr. Sheeba Chandru, Head of the Medical Content Division at Scope said, "EMA monographs are based on brand, which means a single generic US monograph may be linked to multiple brand alternatives in the European Union. This called for a very refined level of understanding of clinical pharmacology. Our in-house SMEs were able to successfully meet this challenge". She continued, "Apart from this, there was the challenge to deliver content in a standardized format. This would have normally been time-consuming if not for an automated workflow built by our technology team. This automated workflow helped quickly populate the fields in the monograph."

Tram Venkataraman (Tram), President, Scope e-Knowledge Center said, "At Scope, we are focused on enabling publishers, information product and enterprise content managers get the maximum ROI from existing content. We are thrilled that our unique hybrid, technology + SME delivery methodology was instrumental in making this project a success. The fact that the client partnered with us in developing guidelines for creating monographs for drugs was the icing on the cake."

US AIP Publishing eliminates publication page charges across all journals - 08 Jan 2018

AIP Publishing, a wholly owned not-for-profit subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), has announced the elimination of publication page charges and colour charges, as of January 1, 2018, for all of the organisation's journals, including Physics of Plasmas, Review of Scientific Instruments, and 10 other prominent peer-reviewed physical science titles. The company's decision followed an assessment of the global publishing landscape, which found that the charges represented potential barriers to some researchers, and no longer serve the AIP Publishing non-profit mission. Two prominent AIP Publishing titles, Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters, ceased levying publication page charges in June 2017.

Removing these charges is the latest in a series of AIP Publishing policy initiatives to accommodate emerging shifts in scholarly communication. In 2016 the company adapted its licensing policies so that authors retain copyright of their work, and can share author manuscripts, without embargo, upon acceptance into an AIP Publishing journal.

AIP Publishing continually reviews policies to maintain alignment with the needs of physical science researchers around the globe. The decision complements the company's participation in industry initiatives such as CHORUS and howcanishareit, which make content more discoverable and accessible to researchers. AIP Publishing is also part of the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC), providing free, open access to reference data from all journals in its portfolio.

US NISO to manage U.S. Group dedicated to document description and processing languages - 08 Jan 2018

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to take over management of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group for the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 - Document description and processing languages. This international technical committee is concerned with standardisation in the field of document structures, languages, and related facilities for the description and processing of compound and hypermedia documents. The portfolio includes standards for document structures, structures for interactive documents in web environments, document processing architectures, multilingual font information interchange, and APIs for document processing. The accreditation also means that the United States will once again be a voting member of ISO/IEC/JTC 1/SC 34 after a lapse of some months.

NISO's membership voted this past fall in favour of adding the JTC 1/SC 34 portfolio to its roster of international standards activities. NISO has managed the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for ISO/TC46 - Information and documentation and its six subcommittees since the technical committee was formed in the 1940s. NISO also serves as the Secretariat for ISO/TC 46/SC 9 - Identification and description, supporting the international work on identifiers and metadata it undertakes, so that the new work is an ideal complement to an already robust set of responsibilities.

The ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1, Subcommittee 34 described in its 2017 business plan the value of its work. JTC 1/SC 34 includes among its 80 standards those relating to SGML, EPUB, Office Open XML (OOXML), OpenDocument Format, Font information interchange, and Document Schema Definition Languages (DSDL).

A full list of the Technical Committee's standards is available at https://www.iso.org/committee/45374/x/catalogue/p/1/u/0/w/0/d/0.

US ERTís Karin Beckstrom recognised as a Top Industry Innovator - 08 Jan 2018

ERT, a global data and technology company that minimises uncertainty and risk in clinical trials, has announced that Karin Beckstrom, who heads up the company's Innovation Lab, has been named a Top 20 Innovator by CenterWatch.

CenterWatch's list of Top 20 Innovators recognises the smart and talented industry representatives who are exploring and developing innovative products and services that will improve drug development over the next decade.

Beckstrom's recognition is based on results from a months-long proof of concept initiative she and a team of ERT developers executed, which explored how patients could benefit from using voice assistant technology instead of traditional, manual methods to submit clinical trial data. Developed in collaboration with Orbita, a healthcare software provider, ERTís Voice Assistant Data Capture Solution simplifies patient data collection by enabling clinical trial participants to complete daily assessment surveys, report vital statistics measurements, ask questions, receive training and report health concerns via voice recognition technology. Additional applications are under development.

ERTís Voice Assistant Data Capture Solution has great potential for capturing important real-world data from clinical trial participants, as well as from patients participating in post-launch, late phase programs. Patients with manual dexterity limitations - including those with rheumatoid arthritis or Parkinson's disease - may benefit the most from the technology. Instead of having to manually enter or write down answers, which may prove difficult, they simply need to vocalise their responses and the interface will enter the data.
