US UpToDate Advanced now available for all Veterans Health Administration’s clinicians - 31 Jan 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health, a provider of trusted clinical technology and evidence-based solutions, has announced that the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), a part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), has added UpToDate® Advanced™ to its range of solutions from Wolters Kluwer.

The VHA claims to be the largest healthcare system in the US with more than 306,000 full-time clinicians and support staff who care for nine million veterans each year at 172 medical centers and more than one thousand outpatient clinics.

With the expansion of the relationship into a national agreement, all VHA clinicians can now use UpToDate Advanced. With interactive UpToDate Pathways decision making algorithms, clinicians can arrive at the best decisions for their patients in view of contemporary medical knowledge, clinical experience and patient-specific factors. UpToDate Pathways will aid the VHA to target over 60 common medical conditions associated with unwanted clinical variability.

UpToDate Advanced's Lab Interpretation will assist subscribers in reducing unnecessary medical tests, preventing missed diagnoses, and identifying adverse patient outcomes.

Supporting the VHA's multidisciplinary approach to care known as 'Patient Aligned Care Teams' (PACT), UpToDate Advanced joins several resources from Wolters Kluwer currently leveraged by the VHA across the continuum of care: Lexicomp® Online for Dentistry; and Ovid® medical research platform including Lippincott Journals (Total Access Collection including over 300 medical and nursing journals), Ovid MEDLINE®, clinical resources and ebooks.

Wolters Kluwer digital technology and expert solutions also support the VHA in its role as the provider of graduate medical education and as a major contributor to medical and scientific research. The VHA has over 120,000 trainees in more than 40 health professions.

UK UCL Press launches new open access megajournal - UCL Open - 31 Jan 2019

UCL Press has launched its new open access megajournal - UCL Open. The journal is now accepting academic research submissions.

It is the first university megajournal providing an open access and transparent end to end publishing model, enabling research to be accessible to everyone.

It is being piloted with UCL Open: Environment which focuses on environment-related research and will include contributions from life and earth sciences, as well as medical, physical, population, engineering, and social sciences. The model is expected to be developed and rolled out across a broad range of multidisciplinary research subjects.

UCL first announced that it would be launching a new open access megajournal in January 2018, signalling its continued commitment through UCL Press to providing academics and students with ground-breaking research free of charge in a move that challenges traditional commercial publishing models.

Powered by the ScienceOpen discovery and publication platform, the megajournal aims to showcase radical and critical thinking applied to real world problems that benefit humanity.

The megajournal will champion the open science/scholarship agenda by openly and transparently reviewing and publishing articles that generate new knowledge, ideas and new ways of thinking.

Articles will be judged on the merit and scientific validity (sound science/scholarship) of the work. The journal is inviting submissions from any grade of researcher at and beyond UCL, at all career stages, including early career researchers, professionals, and mid to late career scholars. Editors are welcoming research from all parts of the globe that particularly focus on inter- and multi-disciplinary research.

UCL Open: Environment is now open and accepting new submissions.

US O’Reilly’s new survey explores tools and best practices for advanced analytics and AI - 31 Jan 2019

O'Reilly, a source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, has announced the results of its 'Evolving Data Infrastructure' survey, which explores the tools companies are using for their advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects and the best practices they have acquired along the way.

The research found that more than half (58 percent) of the present companies are either building or evaluating data science platforms - which are essential for companies that are keen on growing their data science teams and machine learning capabilities - while 85 percent of companies already have data infrastructure in the cloud.

Other key findings reveal that the companies are building or evaluating solutions in foundational technologies needed to sustain success in analytics and AI. These include data integration and Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) (60 percent), data preparation and cleaning (52 percent), data governance (31 percent), metadata analysis and management (28 percent) and data lineage management (21 percent).

Companies are building data infrastructure in the cloud. Eighty-five percent indicated that they had data infrastructure in at least one of the seven top cloud providers, with two-thirds (63 percent) using Amazon Web Services (AWS). The results also showed that users of AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform (GCP) tended to use multiple cloud providers.

The use of durable cloud storage is prevalent. Sixty-two percent of all respondents indicated they used at least one of the following: Amazon S3 or Glacier, Azure Storage, or Google Cloud Storage.

The survey also highlights that the data scientists and data engineers are in demand. When asked what skills their teams needed to strengthen, 44 percent said data science and 41 percent said data engineering.

Respondents used a variety of streaming and data processing technologies. Half of the respondents (49 percent) used either Apache Spark or Spark Streaming, while other popular tools included open source projects (Apache Kafka, Apache Hadoop) and their related managed services in the cloud (Elastic MapReduce, AWS Kinesis).

Business intelligence uses a mix of open source and managed services. When it comes to SQL, respondents favored open source tools (Spark SQL, Apache Hive) and managed services in the cloud (AWS RedShift, Google BigQuery).

Although a majority (60 percent) aren’t using serverless technologies, one-third (30 percent) are already using AWS Lambda. In fact, 38 percent indicated that they were using at least one serverless technology - a pattern that remained consistent across geographic regions.

O’Reilly will present the full research findings at the Strata Data Conference, to be held on March 25-28, 2019 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. The conference will bring together cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals to help attendees build a solid foundation for their AI strategy and machine learning initiatives. The event programming offers a deep dive into emerging data science techniques and technologies, including case studies, in-depth tutorials and emerging best practices.

Registration is now open and a limited number of media passes are available for qualified journalists and analysts.

US University of Hawaiʻi System selects Ex Libris Alma and Primo solutions - 31 Jan 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Hawai'i (UH) System has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform, which will be integrated with the library's Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution.

UH will modernise its libraries by reengineering back-end processes and leveraging the future-proof Ex Libris platform and infrastructure to manage all types of resources, both owned and licensed, and make them available to end users. Retiring its legacy software, which includes the Ex Libris Voyager® integrated library system, UH will use Alma workflows to handle the complete life cycle of print and electronic resources.

Through Alma's out-of-the-box consortium support, UH will establish a dedicated consortial zone of the 10 individual institutions in the UH System. Consortium members will be able to share data and analytics, facilitate the lending and borrowing of materials, and participate in consortium-wide workflows. The deep Alma and Primo integration will assist the member libraries in optimising services; enhancing the user experience; and maximising discoverability, resource sharing, and collaboration.

US ARL Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce renamed as Kaleidoscope program - 31 Jan 2019

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce has been renamed as Kaleidoscope program.

The name Kaleidoscope signifies responsiveness to fluid landscapes, needs, and cultures, which is an important element of diversity, equity, and inclusion in research libraries and in society more broadly. Much like a kaleidoscope changes as it is moved, reflecting diverse colours, shapes, and perspectives, the Kaleidoscope program ensures the evolution of the library and archives profession to reflect and embrace the diverse reality of the communities they serve.

Founded in 2000 as ARL's first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion recruitment program, the initiative has demonstrated its long-term impact by bringing more than 250 underrepresented students into the library and archives profession. This program has also helped the library and archives community develop a broader understanding of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion as well as the barriers to diversifying the profession.
