UK Springer Nature and ResearchGate extend content sharing pilot - 11 Jul 2019

Springer Nature and ResearchGate have extended their content sharing pilot. The second iteration of the pilot will now see four times more Springer Nature content being rolled out across the ResearchGate platform, including content from specialised Springer journals. This enhanced accessibility means more Springer Nature authors will benefit from this partnership along with more Springer Nature-published content on the ResearchGate platform for ResearchGate users to access, download and share.

In addition, solutions will be assessed and tested to improve access to research literature for researchers off campus and on different devices. ResearchGate users without a Springer Nature institutional subscription will have access to articles in a non-downloadable format. This will be assessed via internal research and community feedback to see whether it is a sustainable model for the future.

The continuation of the pilot is the result of positive feedback from users during the first phase, which launched on March 7th, 2019 and provided full-text articles from 23 Nature-branded journals to ResearchGate so they could be made automatically available on authors’ profiles for all ResearchGate users to access, read and share on or off campus.

The second phase is also focused on demonstrating the valuable role librarians play as providers of access to scientific research and literature. Working with librarians, ResearchGate and Springer Nature will assess how a more comprehensive picture of the use of research literature by their patrons can be provided by working towards aligning the cooperation with established industry standards. When a researcher is provided access because of the investment made by their library/institution, this will also be actively promoted to researchers on the ResearchGate platform.

France EDP Sciences signs the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) - 11 Jul 2019

EDP Sciences has joined 1445 other organisations supporting the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

The declaration ‘recognises the need to improve the ways in which the outputs of scholarly research are evaluated’ and ‘is a worldwide initiative covering all scholarly disciplines and all key stakeholders including funders, publishers, professional societies, institutions, and researchers.’

DORA emerged from a meeting of editors and publishers during the Annual Meeting of The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) in San Francisco, 2012. One of their primary concerns was that ‘The Journal Impact Factor is frequently used as the primary parameter with which to compare the scientific output of individuals and institutions.’ The group went on to develop a set of recommendations, referred to as the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment.

UK BMJ and the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan collaborate to launch BMJ’s Clinical Decision Support Initiative in Kazakhstan - 11 Jul 2019

Medical knowledge provider BMJ is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) of Kazakhstan to implement its Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Training Initiative, a three-year programme aimed at improving detection, diagnosis and management of infectious diseases in Kazakhstan.

The main strength of any health system is the knowledge of its healthcare providers. Health systems around the world fall behind because proven information doesn’t reach frontline providers fast enough. BMJ’s initiative will build the capacities of Kazakh doctors and strengthen the national health system.

The initiative provides Kazakh doctors with BMJ’s evidence-based tools, BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning. Doctors will benefit from real-time access to the resources, in both Russian and English.

To celebrate the signing of the three-year agreement between BMJ and MoH, a launch event was held on July 11, 2019.

Dr Lyazat Aktayeva, Vice Minister of Health of Kazakhstan opened the conference. The event was attended by Ambassadors of the United Kingdom and the United States, representatives of the government of the United States, the management of BMJ, other international organisations, as well as representatives of medical organisations, research institutes, national centers and medical universities of Kazakhstan.

Since the inception of BMJ’s CDS initiative in 2016, it has been successfully implemented in six countries including Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Georgia, reaching over 17,500 doctors in more than 1,000 medical institutions.
