UK Taylor & Francis announces new data sharing policies opening up the research lifecycle - 14 Feb 2018

Academic publisher Taylor & Francis has introduced a suite of new data sharing policies to drive open scholarship forwards and help the research communities achieve their goals.

Data is a key research output, therefore sharing it presents a multitude of opportunities for research and researchers. The new policies aim to promote increased sharing of data to improve the robustness of the entire research process, supporting transparency, reproducibility, and replicability of results.

Data citation capabilities will be introduced, enabling researchers to get and give credit for their valuable data findings. Where authors share data, they will be required to include a data availability statement, which will improve the discoverability of their research. The new policies range from encouraging data sharing to making data open with a license, offering flexibility while ensuring the needs of different fields and disciplines are met.

A basic policy encouraging data sharing will be applied to all titles owned by Taylor & Francis, with an aim to move many journals to more progressive data sharing policies during 2018 following consultation with partners.

At the start of this year, the open scholarship options for Taylor & Francis authors were further increased with the launch of Big Earth Data, a journal that uses open data to advance discoveries in Earth Science. Last month, Taylor & Francis also announced a new partnership with Code Ocean, enabling researchers to share and run code to generate data simulations.

US New Japanese study finds using UpToDate from Wolters Kluwer helps reduce medical errors, the third-highest cause of death in the US - 14 Feb 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that a Japanese study published in the International Journal of Medical Informatics has found a significant association between use of UpToDate clinical decision support (CDS) and reduced diagnostic errors. Physicians who used UpToDate had a significantly lower rate of diagnostic errors compared with a control group without UpToDate (2 percent versus 24 percent). The authors concluded that 'UpToDate use was significantly associated with diagnostic error reduction.'

The new research highlights the impact of Wolters Kluwer's acclaimed decision support resource in reducing variability in care, increasing patient safety and improving clinical effectiveness.

The study comes after researchers at Johns Hopkins estimated in a 2016 study that medical errors should rank as the third leading cause of death in the US. In the new study, the team of Drs. Taro Shimizu, Takaaki Nemoto and Yasuharu Tokuda sought to evaluate how computer-based systems might help to prevent and reduce diagnostic errors. They conducted the study at the outpatient department of the Tokyo Joto Hospital, a community-based hospital in Tokyo, Japan.

The study, "Effectiveness of a clinical knowledge support system for reducing diagnostic errors in outpatient care in Japan: A retrospective study" was published in the January 2018 issue of the International Journal of Medical Informatics.

US American Society for Microbiology joins the Initiative for Open Citations - 14 Feb 2018

The American Society for Microbiology has joined the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC).

The I4OC is a collaboration between scholarly publishers, researchers, and other interested parties to promote the unrestricted availability of scholarly citation data. It aims to establish a global public web of linked scholarly citation data to enhance the discoverability of published content, explore connections between knowledge fields, and follow the evolution of ideas and scholarly disciplines.

The ASM will support the many benefits of the I4OC, including: Researchers will be able to study the dissemination of methods and scientific ideas; Authors will gain machine-readable access to references for all their papers; Funding organisations will be able to rely on this public resource to develop transparent and reproducible evaluation metrics and create new tools to assess the academic and societal impact of research they fund; and Members of the public will be able to trace information back to its source or reuse it in open knowledge repositories such as Wikipedia and Wikidata.

Before I4OC started, publishers releasing references in the open accounted for just 1% of citation metadata collected annually by Crossref. Following discussions over the past months, several subscription-access and open-access publishers have recently made the decision to release reference list metadata publicly. These include: American Geophysical Union, Association for Computing Machinery, BMJ, Cambridge University Press, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, EMBO Press, Royal Society of Chemistry, SAGE Publishing, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley. These publishers join other publishers who have been opening their references through Crossref for some time.
