UK ConTech 2018 is open for business in just two months from now - 26 Sep 2018

The world of publishing has been forged from two great waves of technology - the invention of the printing press and the creation of the internet. Those who attend ConTech 2018 will get to grips with the next, third wave of technology that is already revolutionising the world of publishing. ConTech 2018 takes place at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London from 29th to 30th November.

A new generation of intelligent technology is transforming publishing and the world of digital content. Driven by data science and artificial intelligence, new tools are making publishers and content providers smarter, faster and more attuned to the needs of their users.

At ConTech 2018, attendees will hear from the pioneering publishers who have embraced this new technology to change the way they create, manage and sell their content, and from content users and information specialists who are using this new generation of tools to revolutionise the way they gain insight from content.

Speakers from established organisations including Google, Elsevier, UK Government Digital Services and Wiley will be joined by new players Oiga Technologies, Twipe, Echobox, Yewno and wisdom.ai to name just a few. Attendees can see the latest product developments in the Data Driven product demos; create your organisations’ Data Science Premium; and attend ConTech's first special market focus at PDR 4.0: Embracing opportunities for Information in a digital healthcare world.

ConTech 2018 will host the next DataBeers London event at the end of day 1. If you have a passion to better understand data science then this is a must attend event!

US Cabell Huntington Hospital to implement Wolters Kluwer’s POC Advisor to improve patient safety and sepsis detection - 26 Sep 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of trusted clinical technology and evidence-based solutions, has announced that Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) has selected POC Advisor™ as their enterprise surveillance solution to rapidly and accurately identify and treat sepsis patients. The not-for-profit, regional hospital in West Virginia chose POC Advisor for its evidence-based decision support capabilities, advanced predictive technology and proven effectiveness after testing other sepsis surveillance methods.

Cabell Huntington Hospital is a 303-bed teaching hospital that is affiliated with Marshall University Schools of Medicine and Nursing. By integrating POC Advisor into the workflow at the point of care, CHH clinicians will receive patient-specific, evidence-based alerts and advice when they need it most. The platform draws upon real-time patient data from the electronic health record (EHR), including vital signs, medications, physicians' notes, comorbidities and lab results.

POC Advisor has demonstrated a 95 percent sensitivity and 82 percent specificity of alerts, as documented in a peer-review study in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA). The study found POC Advisor also helped clinicians reduce sepsis mortality by 50 percent and related 30-day readmissions by 30 percent.

CHH will begin implementing the solution in the coming months.

US MIT Press and MIT Media Lab launch Knowledge Futures Group - 26 Sep 2018

The MIT Press has announced the launch of the Knowledge Futures Group (KFG), a first-of-its kind collaboration between a publisher and an academic lab to transform how research information is created and shared.

This joint initiative of the MIT Press and the MIT Media Lab seeks to redefine research publishing from a closed, sequential process, into an open, community-driven one. They aim to develop and deploy technologies that form part of a new open knowledge ecosystem, one that fully exploits the capabilities of the web to accelerate discovery and the transmission of knowledge.

The effort has thus far received $1.5 million for its initial year of operation, through the generous support of Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and a member of the MIT Media Lab's Advisory Council; smaller project-specific gifts from Siegel Family Endowment, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and Protocol Labs; and several individual donors.

One of the KFG's first projects is PubPub, an open authoring and publishing platform developed by Travis Rich and Thariq Shihipar while they were graduate students at the Media Lab. The platform socialises the process of knowledge creation by integrating conversation, annotation, and versioning into a digital publication. The KFG is also incubating the Underlay, an open, distributed knowledge store conceived by Danny Hillis and Sam Klein, and being developed with Joel Gustafson. The Underlay is architected to capture, connect, and archive publicly available knowledge and its provenance.

The initiative will be based in close proximity to both the MIT Media Lab and MIT Press at the Cambridge Innovation Center in Kendall Square.

UK Royal Society of Chemistry expands partnership with Publons to give reviewers more recognition - 26 Sep 2018

The Royal Society of Chemistry has expanded its agreement with Publons, the premier reviewer recognition service, across all of their journals.

Last year the Society announced a 12-month trial partnership with Publons across ten of their journals. Following positive feedback from the research community, the Society is continuing the partnership by making the service available - on an ongoing basis - across all of its journals.

Publons is a service that reviewers can sign up for and record their peer review history, as a way of 'getting recognition for peer review'. Their mission is to speed up research by harnessing the power of great peer review, working with publishers, institutions and researchers to turn peer review into a measurable output that can be used to demonstrate a researcher's standing, impact and influence in their field.

German ScienceOpen partners with Compuscript/International Science Editing in China - 26 Sep 2018

Discovery platform ScienceOpen has announced a partnership with Compuscript/International Science Editing in China to develop new products tailored specifically for the Chinese market.

Chinese researchers face tremendous hurdles in communicating their research results to the rest of the world - from language barriers to internet restrictions and the traditional western bias of the scientific literature. Over their 15-year history in China, Compuscript/International Science Editing have built a strong local network to help overcome these challenges, providing editorial and technical support to Chinese researchers, editors, and institutions. With its freely accessible, interactive discovery environment of over 45 million articles and records, ScienceOpen can put Chinese journal content in context with a web of connections to the broader research framework. In combination, the two companies hope to develop new solutions for Chinese journals to increase their impact in the wider scientific community.

ScienceOpen's discovery platform offers Chinese academic researchers a great opportunity to promote their research publications and cultivate their peer networks outside China. ScienceOpen also offers huge discoverability opportunities for Chinese language journals that traditionally host inside China but have some English language content, such as abstracts and translated featured articles. Hosting this content on ScienceOpen brings this work to the global scholarly community in a much more discoverable and open manner. Through the International Science Editing service they have been working with Chinese individual researchers and publishers for over a decade.

With the growing volume of research conducted in China, new solutions are needed to facilitate the exchange of ideas across cultural boundaries. The partnership between ScienceOpen and Compuscript/International Science Editing is committed to grassroots solutions supported by cutting- edge technology.
