UK Emerald Publishing appoints Vicky Williams as its new CEO - 11 Jan 2018

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has announced the appointment of Vicky Williams as its new CEO.

Richard Bevan, who has been CEO of Emerald Group (incorporating Emerald Publishing, Research Media, GoodPractice and Towards Maturity) since 2010, will take on the additional role of Executive Chairman of Emerald Group, with its Founder, Dr Keith Howard, stepping down as Chairman after 50 successful years. Dr Howard will remain a member of the Emerald Group Board.

Vicky moving into the Emerald Publishing CEO role will allow Richard to focus on the Group at what is an exciting time, as it looks to develop new markets in the Learning and Development space, and potentially make further strategic acquisitions.

Vicky has held a variety of senior roles at Emerald in her 18 years at Emerald, including Head of Publishing Development, Director of Business and Development and, most recently, Director of People (HR) and CEO of Emerald's creative agency business, Research Media.

This range and level of experience - spanning editorial, new product and digital development, business intelligence, HR and global marketing communications - gives Vicky unique insight into the challenges and opportunities facing academic publishing, and makes her ideally placed to take Emerald forward to meet them.

US Sírio-Libanês Hospital in Brazil strengthens medication safety with Wolters Kluwer’s Lexicomp and Medi-Span - 11 Jan 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced the expansion of its partnership with Sírio-Libanês Hospital, an international health center in São Paulo, Brazil. The institution, which has relied on Wolters Kluwer's UpToDate® clinical decision support since 2010, recently adopted Lexicomp® Online drug reference and Medi-Span® embedded drug data. With these combined resources, Sírio-Libanês becomes the first institution in Brazil to implement the Advanced Clinical Decision Support (ACDS) solution. Hospital leaders believe the combined ACDS resources are essential to improving clinical effectiveness, particularly with regard to reduced medication errors and patient safety overall.

Sírio-Libanês Hospital is recognised for its 95-year history of excellence and leadership, as well as its pioneering role in healthcare and medical research in Brazil. The hospital cares for thousands of patients annually at its complex in São Paulo’s Bela Vista district and three additional locations: a diagnostic center and ambulatory hospital in Itaim Bibi; a multidisciplinary clinic in Jardins; and an oncology center in Brasília.

The steady, sustained growth of UpToDate usage by the clinical staff served as one of the key reasons for choosing to deploy ACDS at Sírio-Libanês Hospital.

US Research Square's new multimedia product, Video Bytes, helps share research results with the public - 11 Jan 2018

Research Square, a provider of innovative solutions for improving scholarly communication, has announced the launch of a new multimedia product, Video Bytes. These brief, informative videos summarise a piece of published research for a lay audience in a 1-minute overview. Each Video Byte combines on -screen text, relevant imagery and footage, and music to create a compelling and aesthetic take on recent research and how it impacts society. Two samples can be viewed on Research Square’s website: www.researchsquare.com/videos.

Video Bytes are an offshoot of Research Square's successful Video Abstract product, first developed in a trial with Nature Publishing Group in 2015. Like Video Abstracts, Video Bytes cover any field of research and are available for purchase by authors, editors, institutions, funders, or any other interested parties. They are created by Research Square's scientifically trained animation and scriptwriting teams, with input from the authors of the research being summarised. After creation, Video Bytes are posted on social media with appropriate tags and descriptions to enhance their chances of being found.

Video Bytes are available for researchers, universities, funders, and other interested parties to purchase through Research Square’s website, https://www.researchsquare.com/videos.
