France Elsevier partners with health professionals to launch new event highlighting clinical decision support, AI and big data in the hospital - 10 Dec 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, is organising a symposium dedicated to Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS), entitled Clinical Decision Support System, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in the Hospital: Impacts and Limitations Seen by Physicians. The event will take place on December 11, 2018, at the Maison des Polytechniciens.

Organised in partnership with the Association française d'informatique médicale, the Comité National de Coordination de la Recherche, the Fédération hospitalière de France, the Healthcare Data Institute, the Institut Curie and Medicen Paris, the day will bring together more than 200 health and medical professionals to discuss the challenges of AI.

Topics covered will include the integration of validated information into information systems, to predictive medicine based on algorithms that seek to replicate clinical reasoning; data collection coupled with AI; and the impacts the continuum of the decision-making chain. Professionals from the medical and hospital sector will be presenting on the developments that AI and data bring to the health sector. The limits of these new technologies and the upheaval in terms of medical progress, ethics, law and the relationship with patients will also be highlighted.

By organising this first symposium dedicated to CDSS, Elsevier intends to demonstrate its commitment to serving health professionals, to contribute to the improvement of knowledge and to support the digital transition of CDSS.

UK BMC, Research Square and Hypothesis collaborate to promote transparency, early sharing and enable community feedback during peer review - 10 Dec 2018

BMC, Research Square, and Hypothesis have announced a new collaboration designed to promote transparency, early sharing, and encourage community feedback through annotation during the peer review process. In keeping with its long history in experimentation around new types of peer review, BMC has partnered with Research Square to develop 'In Review', a platform for showcasing manuscripts submitted to four BMC titles: Trials, BMC Anesthesiology, BMC Ophthalmology and BMC Neurology.

Interested authors can select 'In Review' when they submit their manuscript through Editorial Manager. Participating will enable them to track the progress of their manuscript through peer review with immediate access to review reports, share their work to engage a wider community through open annotation using Hypothesis, follow a transparent editorial checklist, and gain early collaboration and citation opportunities. Manuscripts posted in 'In Review' receive a DOI, meaning they are permanent and citable.

Annotation feedback can potentially be used by authors and reviewers to improve manuscripts, and can even be used by editors in helping inform their editorial decision. 'In Review' will give visibility to science at an earlier stage in the publication process by opening papers to community feedback.

UK eLife appoints three new Senior Editors to its leadership team - 10 Dec 2018

eLife has appointed three new Senior Editors to its leadership team, supporting submissions in some of the open-access journal's growing research areas.

Eduardo Franco from McGill University, Neil Ferguson from Imperial College London, and Cynthia Wolberger from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine bring expertise in their respective fields of cancer epidemiology, infectious disease epidemiology and biophysics.

They will be responsible for handling manuscripts in a timely manner, operating in concert with the other working scientists who serve as eLife editors, as well as the organisation's early-career advisors, governing board and executive staff, to help realise eLife's mission to accelerate discovery.

In addition to his role as Chairman of the Department of Oncology at McGill University, Eduardo Franco is James McGill Professor in the same department and in the Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics.

His research during the last 33 years has focused on a variety of topics, including: molecular epidemiology and the prevention of cervical cancer and human papillomavirus-associated diseases; prostate, endometrium and childhood tumours; studies of methods for evaluating the effectiveness of cancer-screening strategies; and studies of societal and clinical influences on patient survival.

Neil Ferguson, Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Director of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, undertakes research on the epidemiological factors and population processes that shape the spread of infectious diseases.

A key practical focus of Ferguson's research is the analysis and optimisation of intervention strategies aimed at reducing disease transmission or burden. He also works in developing statistical and mathematical tools to mine epidemiological data more effectively, to improve prediction of disease trends and the assessment of the impact of control programmes.

Cynthia Wolberger serves as Professor of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on structural biology, ubiquitin signaling and regulation of transcription.

eLife's Senior Editors are responsible for maintaining the high quality and broad scope of the work published in the journal, as well as championing its unique approach to peer review.

They decide, in consultation with members of the Board of Reviewing Editors (BRE), whether a paper should be sent for peer review. All manuscripts selected for review are assigned to an appropriate BRE who recruits additional reviewers. The reviewers then consult with one another, once their reviews are in, to finalise the decision and form a consolidated set of comments for the author.

US Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene announces new bilingual collection, Cuba's Agrifood System in Transition - 10 Dec 2018

Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene, a trans-disciplinary, open-access journal, has announced Cuba's Agrifood System in Transition, a new collection of research aimed at amplifying the voices of Cuban experts and fostering exchange and dialogue on sustainable agrifood practices, in the island nation and beyond.

Cuba's experiences with sustainable agriculture and agroecology have been the subject of much international attention, with advocates for sustainability, food security and food sovereignty having looked to Cuba in order to model alternatives to industrial agriculture globally, and to demonstrate the feasibility of sustainable agrifood practices at scale. This collection launches with eight articles, published in both Spanish and English, and from Cuban and non-Cuban researchers, practitioners and policy makers, examining the social, economic and ecological strategies necessary for a sustainable agrifood system, and detailing the opportunities and barriers to scaling up agroecology in Cuba and beyond.

The agrifood system tends to be understood either as an organic, food sovereign utopia, or as a backwards, underdeveloped sector desperately requiring modernisation and revitalisation through foreign investment. Cuba's Agrifood System in Transition presents a more balanced perspective, analysing the nuances of agroecological development in Cuba, highlighting important innovations that have been implemented, and examining some of the significant challenges that continue to be faced.

Among the first articles to publish in this collection are ‘New opportunities, new challenges: Harnessing Cuba's advances in agroecology and sustainable agriculture in the context of changing relations with the United States,' which synthesises and updates the contemporary literature on the Cuban agricultural and food system and analyses the potential futures of agroecology in relation to geopolitical changes; 'How to make prosperous and sustainable family farming in Cuba a reality,' a practice bridge article written by two Cuban farmers documenting their transition towards agroecology and the development of a resilience indicator; 'The role of biological control in the sustainability of the Cuban agri-food system,' which documents the evolution of different types of biological control of pests as an alternative to pesticides; and 'Recent transformations in Cuban agricultural policy and impacts on markets and production,' an analysis of a series of policy transformations implemented by the Cuban government since 2007 to increase the country's agricultural self-sufficiency and reduce its dependence on food imports.
