UK The Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from Occupied Territories, Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia accredits BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning - 02 Aug 2018

The Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from Occupied Territories, Health, Labour and Social Affairs of Georgia and healthcare knowledge provider BMJ have announced that BMJ Best Practice, a clinical decision support tool, and BMJ Learning, an online learning platform, have been accredited for the purposes of CME and CPD.

BMJ has been instrumental in shaping new continuous medical education (CME) and continuous professional development (CPD) systems to help health professionals deliver the very best care to their patients. The CME and CPD credits earned by doctors for using BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning will now be formally recognised by the Ministry and other healthcare organisations across Georgia.

The new system is the result of a unique collaboration between BMJ and the Ministry which has already helped thousands of Georgian health professionals. The collaboration provides health professionals with access to BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning as part of a Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Training Initiative to improve the detection, diagnosis and management of infectious diseases. BMJ's CDS Training Inititiave, supported by the National Centre for Diseases Control and Ministry has been integral to the development and approval of a system for Continuous Medical and Professional Development.

The government decree marks the next step in Georgia's ambitious plans for improving its healthcare systems and infrastructure, improving the use of health resources, and the quality of healthcare services.

BMJ Best Practice is an online decision support tool that gives doctors fast and easy access to the latest information when making diagnosis and treatment decisions for 95% of commonly presented conditions across primary and secondary care. Updated daily, it draws on the latest evidence-based research, guidelines and expert opinion to offer step-by-step guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention.

BMJ Learning is an online learning resource that offers healthcare professionals a fast and efficient way to test their knowledge and keep up to date with the latest developments in medicine. It features around 800 evidence-based, peer-reviewed learning modules across 70 specialty areas.

Switzerland Frontiers and the Technische Universität Berlin announce OA publishing agreement - 02 Aug 2018

The Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) has established an institutional agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

The University Library of the TU Berlin supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this support, TU Berlin has entered into an institutional agreement with Frontiers. Under the terms of this agreement, eligible authors from TU Berlin may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process.

Eligible authors will benefit from a streamlined invoicing process, managed directly between Frontiers and the Open Access team at the University Library of the TU Berlin, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, TU Berlin will benefit from an additional discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.

This agreement will further encourage TU Berlin authors to publish open access, increasing uptake of open access to the results of mostly publicly funded research, to the benefit of the scholarly community and the public at large, while reducing costs.

With the signing of this agreement, the TU Berlin joins several other internationally renowned research institutions in the Berlin-Brandenburg capital region in Germany; Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, as Frontiers institutional members.

German De Gruyter partners with Medieval Institute Publications - 02 Aug 2018

Academic publisher De Gruyter and Medieval Institute Publications have signed a partnership agreement.

The agreement comes on the heels of recent growth in the number of titles MIP produces in late antiquity, medieval and early modern literature. The partnership will allow MIP to expand its niche publishing market in these areas significantly over the coming years, while also developing new areas of publication.

The benefits of the new partnership are twofold: De Gruyter gains from MIP's experience and reputation in the field of medieval studies and MIP benefits from De Gruyter's extensive global reach and advanced mechanisms for marketing and production.

MIP continues to seek submissions from scholars in MIP’s existing areas of expertise for consideration in future publication. In addition, the partnership will allow both organisations to develop new areas of publication, reach new readership, and build on both WMU's and De Gruyter's international reputation for excellence in the humanities.

US Association of University Presses announces organisational changes - 02 Aug 2018

The Association of University Presses has announced both new staff positions and promotions. These changes to the staff of AUPresses are intended to further the Association's strategic goals and to strengthen its ability to serve members.

AUPresses has brought Annette Windhorn on board in the new role of External Communications Manager. This new position has been designed to better communicate the unique value proposition of university presses to the broader academic stakeholder community, and to support growing public awareness campaigns such as University Press Week and #ReadUP.

Windhorn comes to AUPresses from the Organization of American Historians (OAH), where she served as the program coordinator for the successful Distinguished Lectureship Program. Previously, Windhorn was the Marketing Director at OAH and also at the Smithsonian Institution Press. Windhorn joined the Association of University Presses on July 30.

Earlier this year, AUPresses also hired Angelica DeVoe to the position of Program Coordinator, and Kate Kolendo to the newly developed Communications Program Manager position. DeVoe, who has held previous positions at WebMD and the Children's Aid Society, works on both cooperative services and membership programs. Kolendo was made a permanent staff member after serving in the role of Communications & Special Projects Consultant in late 2017, as the Association undertook a renaming and new visual identity. Kolendo, who previously served as Project Manager and PROSE Award administrator for the Professional & Scholarly Publishing Division (PSP) of the Association of American Publishers, will be responsible for community management of a soon-to-launch online network for AUPresses, among other program responsibilities.

In addition to these new hires, AUPresses has reconfigured several existing staff roles to better reflect strategic directions. Kim Miller, previously Office Manager and Program Administrator, was promoted to Business Manager in October 2017. Miller is responsible for managing outsourced accounting services, office and business administration, and payroll and benefits. Susan Patton has been promoted to Membership & Events Director. Patton has been with the Association since 1998, and is responsible for membership management, the planning and organisation of the annual meeting, as well as administering the professional development programs of the Association. The new title recognises Patton's key role in a variety of the Association's flagship member-facing projects and events. Brenna McLaughlin has taken on the new title of Research & Communications Director, responsible for the expanded communications team at AUPresses and tasked with overseeing new research and data communications initiatives as outlined by the board of directors and membership groups.
