UK Springer Nature signs ASAPbio’s open letter promoting transparency in the peer review process - 30 Aug 2018

Open research publisher Springer Nature is partnering with other publishers in promoting transparency in the peer review process by signing ASAPbio’s open letter. As a leading publisher in open research, Springer Nature has long championed the move to greater transparency in peer review in particular through the BMC portfolio, which has a well-established tradition of pioneering new forms of peer review.

As a signatory through BMC and Nature Communications to ASAPbio’s open letter on the publication of peer review reports, the global publisher is encouraging other publishers and journals to join in promoting this approach in general and this initiative in particular.

Since BMC first introduced open peer review in 1999, the number of journals across the BMC’s portfolio now publishing open peer review reports alongside articles has grown to 70 journals.

Nature Communications also operates a transparent peer review process. Both have co-signed the open letter pledging to continue to advocate transparency in peer review.

Saudi Arabia Call for submissions open for the Fourth HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award in the Middle East - 30 Aug 2018

HIMSS Middle East and Elsevier, the global information analytics company specialising in science and health, are calling for submissions for the 4th Annual Middle East HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award 2018.

Since 2013, the HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award has attracted 178 submissions across 29 countries and 99 unique organisations. In total, the projects submitted have impacted over 41 million patients worldwide.

This year’s award for Outstanding ICT Achievement focuses on institutions who have harnessed information and technology to successfully advance patient care and safety. It follows the success of last year’s awards, which saw strong participation from 14 healthcare organisations across the Gulf Cooperation Counsel (GCC), recognising two first-time winners: Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Group, KSA (Outstanding ICT Achievement category), and Ministry of Health & Prevention, UAE (Outstanding ICT Innovation category).

First launched in the Middle East in 2015, the HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award has received 48 submissions from leading public and private organisations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Egypt and Jordan, including 2017 finalists Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, UAE; King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz University Hospital, KSA; Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Group, KSA; and Ain Al Khalee Hospital, UAE.

Deadline for submissions is September 17 2018. Winners will be recognised on October 10, 2018, at the HIMSS Saudi Arabia Conference and Exhibition – during the main program ceremony and at the HIMSS-Elsevier Digital Healthcare Award dinner on October 10 – in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

US Wolters Kluwer announces impact factor gains across its Lippincott portfolio and Medknow open access titles - 30 Aug 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced that seven of its Lippincott journals have been ranked #1 based on their 2017 Journal Citation Report (JCR) Impact Factor Score from Clarivate Analytics. An Impact Factor (IF) is a measurement of the frequency by which an article in a scholarly journal is cited in a particular year. Of the 204 Lippincott titles listed in the JCR rankings, 56 percent had gains over the previous year, with 24 journals increasing 25 percent or more.

Lippincott holds 21 Top 5 spots across 14 specialties and 44 Top 10 across 25 specialties. Rounding out the top 20 rankings, Lippincott holds 90 spots across 39 specialties.

In the Medknow open access journal portfolio, 78 percent of the 32 titles increased their Impact Factor rating over the previous year, with 31 percent seeing a significant increase. Those journals included Conservation and Society, the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine, the Chinese Medical Journal, Journal of Cytology, Pharmacognosy Magazine, and the Indian Journal of Pharmacology.

German Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology to launch in November - 30 Aug 2018

The Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology will launch in November alongside the 2018 Chinese Congress of Radiology (CCR) in Beijing. The journal, to be published by Springer, is the first English-language publication to address general radiology in China.

Zheng Yu Jin, president of the Chinese Society of Radiology, will serve as the journal’s first editor-in-chief. Its international editorial board will include radiologists and other imaging experts. The publication will include original articles, review, editorials, short communications, technical note and letters to the editor.

The Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology provides a communication forum for all international scholars and radiologists in the area of clinical practice and translational research on imaging techniques including radiology, image-fused nuclear medicine and ultrasound. A comprehensive resource, it covers the latest findings and developments in the field of diagnostic imaging and image-guided interventional techniques.

All articles will be open access in 2018 and 2019.

UK Multifunctional Materials publishes its inaugural issue - 30 Aug 2018

Multifunctional Materials, a journal serving an emerging field at the convergence of materials science, physics, chemistry, bioscience, and engineering, recently published its first issue.

The design and manufacture of materials capable of multiple functions - so called 'multifunctional' materials – has emerged as a rapidly growing area in materials science.

It is characterised by multidisciplinary research, and the potential for wide-ranging innovation covering areas such as energy, environmental sustainability, healthcare, aerospace, nanoelectronics, soft robotics and semiconductors.

In the first issue of Multifunctional Materials, Trevor Buckner and Dr Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio from Yale University, USA, review how functional fibres could be used in soft robotics.

The journal is led by two editors-in-chief: Andreas Lendlein, Director of the Institute of Biomaterial Science at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research and Professor for Materials in Life Sciences at Potsdam University, and Richard Trask, Chair in Advanced Materials at the Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS) and a Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol.

The journal aims to cover: the design and manufacture of programmed materials for multifunctionality, morphing and adaptivity; 'Meta-materials' designed and created through current chemistry or synthetic biology; multifunctional materials designed with capabilities of intelligent systems, such as sensing and self-diagnosis; characterisation methods for functions, multiscale modelling and computational materials engineering; and novel applications of functional multi-materials.

Multifunctional Materials is free to read for individual users, universities, and academic research institutes throughout 2018.

Australia New Zealand’s Te Wānanga o Aotearoa selects Ex Libris Alma and Primo solutions - 30 Aug 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and the Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, replacing the school’s Ex Libris Voyager® integrated library system. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa (TWOA) claims to be one of New Zealand’s largest institutions of higher education, delivering courses at more than 80 locations.

TWOA sought a secure, cloud-based library system that can handle library collections located at multiple sites. Working with a well-established vendor that provides top-quality, real-time support for the library was another major requirement.

TWOA concluded that the Alma workflows, Ex Libris security and support infrastructure, and sophisticated Primo discovery features will help the school fulfil these goals.
