US NIH’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and Elsevier in deal for use of NCATS’ rare disease database - 05 Sep 2019

Elsevier, a global information analytics business specialising in science and health, and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), have agreed to allow Elsevier to access NCATS’ rare disease database.

The Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD), a program of NCATS, developed the database to provide patients, their families and friends, healthcare providers, and the public with current information on rare and/or genetic conditions and support sources.

Elsevier is building an online tool to help healthcare providers, particularly physicians, broaden the scope of diagnosis based not just on patients' symptom but also taking into consideration their medical history to predict a list of diseases to which the patient may be subject.

The GARD database will feed the Elsevier product’s content-based algorithm to predict a list of diseases based on the symptoms provided by the patient. Created in 2002, GARD is funded by two parts of the NIH: NCATS and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). GARD provides the public with access to current, reliable and easy to understand information about rare or genetic diseases in English or Spanish.

UK ConTech 2019 and EBSCO Information Services partner to connect librarians and library students with new technologies - 05 Sep 2019

ConTech 2019 and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) have announced a partnership to ensure more librarians attend the event in December. EBSCO will sponsor the conference — a sponsorship that will include a submission process that will allow four librarians to attend for free as well as a 50 percent discount for all librarian attendees, along with two opportunities for library student bursaries.

ConTech 2019 is a two-day conference specifically designed for information providers, information professionals, users and content owners who increasingly address the challenges of competing in a data world driven by machine learning, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies. ConTech was born because the intersection between information, content and data science is one of the most exciting, disruptive and unpredictable areas of publishing and information right now. It is the biggest tech revolution to hit the information world since the birth of the internet. The conference takes place December 5-6 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.

Librarians may apply for one of the four complimentary places by completing an online form by September 30. Recipients will be selected by an independent adjudicator on October 2. Librarians interested in attending can leverage the discount by booking online to receive 50 percent off on the two-day delegate rate.

Interested parties may visit https://contechlive.com/contech-2019-student-bursary/ for more information about the student bursary, and apply by November 15.

US Guthrie selects POC Advisor from Wolters Kluwer for faster Sepsis detection using AI technology - 05 Sep 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health has announced that Guthrie, a not-for-profit, integrated health care system in Pennsylvania and New York, has selected POC Advisor™ to aid in rapid, accurate detection and treatment of sepsis at its four area hospitals. Beginning with Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, a Regional Level II Trauma Center, POC Advisor will equip the 254-bed tertiary care hospital in northern Pennsylvania with expert solutions to accelerate sepsis care using evidence-based alerts for clinicians at the point of care.

The World Health Organization estimates sepsis globally affects over 30 million people annually, potentially leading to six million deaths. Mortality rates increase by six to eight percent for every hour of delayed treatment. Every hour matters and to manage sepsis hazards effectively, healthcare organizations need earlier detection and truly accurate alerting tools. Too many false-positive alerts can leave providers vulnerable to alert fatigue and missed alerts that are legitimate. In some cases, providers request to disable alert systems altogether because of frequent false-positive alerts.

With POC Advisor, hospitals can improve sepsis alert accuracy to 99 percent sensitivity and 97 percent specificity. At Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital’s emergency department, POC Advisor will analyse patient data within the EHR and apply hundreds of different clinical scenarios to identify escalating conditions sooner in the course of care, ensuring a rapid response with sepsis treatment bundles.

By using artificial intelligence (AI), POC Advisor adds smarter, advanced sepsis detection into the clinical workflow. At Guthrie, where providers rely heavily on documenting patient conditions in text notes, natural language processing (NLP) scours clinical notes for critical information missing from EHR data that might indicate sepsis. For healthcare organisations, not only does clinical surveillance technology like POC Advisor integrated with EHRs improve outcomes, but it also lower costs. According to a peer-reviewed study in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), POC Advisor demonstrated a reduction in mortality of sepsis patients by 53 percent, and a reduction in related 30-day readmissions by 31 percent.

Supporting Guthrie’s multidisciplinary approach to care, POC Advisor joins several resources from Wolters Kluwer currently leveraged by Guthrie across the continuum of care. These include: Integrated Patient Education; Lexicomp®; Lippincott® Procedures and NursingCenter® CEConnection; Medi-Span®; and UpToDate® Advanced.

US DOAJ and the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies collaborate on new pilot to encourage Finnish open access journals to apply to DOAJ - 05 Sep 2019

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies (TSV) are collaborating on a pilot project to encourage and help peer-reviewed open access (OA) journals published in Finland to be indexed in DOAJ. The Pilot runs from May 2019 to May 2020.

DOAJ has set an international standard for peer-reviewed OA journals. The index currently includes 13500 journals from over 131 countries publishing in 75 languages, showing the regional and linguistic diversity of research.

For a variety of reasons, not all open access journals are indexed in DOAJ. A recent paper by Björk showed DOAJ covers 42% of OA journals published in Nordic countries, and there are considerable country differences – 68% of OA journals from Norway but only 23% from Finland.

In an open letter concerning Plan S, DOAJ called on representative groups in the social sciences, humanities and arts to collaborate with them and help them identify journals that are fit for purpose, and which should be indexed in DOAJ. The TSV Publication Forum (Julkaisufoorumi in Finnish) answered that call and has identified ~160 potential OA journals published in Finland, of which 29 are already in DOAJ. TSV proposed a collaboration with DOAJ to help getting the rest of the Finnish OA journals indexed.

The pilot project will determine if these journals are DOAJ compliant and, if not, what they need to do to meet the basic DOAJ criteria. DOAJ, TSV Publication Forum and TSV Publication Services will work together to facilitate the process of the journals’ possible inclusion in DOAJ by communicating criteria, translating instructions, and organising workshops for training and preparing applications. A further goal of the pilot is to encourage Finnish journals that are not yet OA to consider open access publishing.

TSV Publication Forum maintains a national classification of peer-reviewed journals and book publishers that is based on evaluation by field-specific expert panels. All the identified potential OA journals have been approved to be peer-reviewed academic/scholarly journals. Many of the journals also use the TSV label for peer-reviewed scholarly publications, showing their strong commitment to high standards of peer-review and research integrity.

Most peer-reviewed journals in Finland are not-for-profit and are published by learned societies. TSV’s strategy for 2019-2023 includes developing open publication by member organisations so the pilot project launched with DOAJ is very much on the Federation’s agenda. TSV is also the national coordinator of Finland’s open science policy, and is currently working with stakeholders to create a national open access strategy as well as recommendations for responsible evaluation of a researcher.

UK Digital Science and the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics partner to provide ISSI members with free access to Dimensions and Altmetric data - 05 Sep 2019

Scholarly technology provider Digital Science has announced a collaboration with the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) that will give ISSI members enhanced access to Dimensions and Altmetric data for scientometric research.

ISSI is an international association of scholars and professionals active in the interdisciplinary study science of science, science communication, and science policy. The ISSI community advances the boundaries of quantitative science studies, from theoretical, empirical, and practical perspectives.

Starting October 1 2019, ISSI members will formally be invited to apply for no-cost access to Altmetric and Dimensions web tools and APIs. A committee of ISSI members will provide expert assessment of researchers’ applications and guidance on using Altmetric and Dimensions in their research.

This partnership builds upon Altmetric and Dimensions’ existing no-cost data sharing programs, which are currently open to all researchers conducting non-commercial scientometric research, while providing ISSI members with additional expert advice on early-stage research.

There is an increasing demand for high quality assessments of the science and innovation ecosystem. Scientometric expertise is crucial for ensuring that these assessments are done responsibly and can be relied on as a trusted source of information for policymakers and the public alike. The necessary data for these analyses, however, is often expensive and limited in scope.

The collaboration marks a significant step forward in how Dimensions and Altmetric data are made available and used by the community to create new scientometric indicators. The partnership will also open up fresh research opportunities for exploration of the more than 100 million publications and 1 billion citations indexed in Dimensions (interlinked with millions of grants and patents, and hundreds of thousands of clinical trial records and policy documents), and 108 million mentions of 13 million scholarly works captured by Altmetric across seventeen distinct online platforms.
