Wiley and the American Fisheries Society announce new publishing partnership
- 11 Oct 2017

Publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc. has announced its selection by the American Fisheries Society (AFS) as publishing partner for its prestigious journals and magazine devoted to the research of aquatic sciences and fisheries resources. With more than 7,500 members globally, AFS is the world's oldest and largest organisation dedicated to strengthening the fisheries profession, advancing fisheries science, and conserving fisheries resources.

Beginning in January 2018, Wiley will assume publishing responsibility for AFS's highly esteemed journals, including its flagship title Transactions of the American Fisheries Society, the leading journals North American Journal of Fisheries Management, North American Journal of Aquaculture, Journal of Aquatic Animal Health, and its premier Open Access publication, Marine and Coastal Fisheries. Wiley will also publish the Society's renowned magazine, Fisheries.

Founded in 1870, AFS has been an influential leader in disseminating knowledge and promoting awareness of scientific research and the sustainable management of fisheries resources to its members and the broader community for nearly 150 years. In keeping with AFS's mission, the partnership will expand the global reach and impact of the AFS publications, and provide an enhanced digital presence and new services for AFS members, authors, readers, and editors.

BMJ adopts River Valley's ReView for its new Open Science journal
- 10 Oct 2017

Medical knowledge provider BMJ has adopted ReView, River Valley's submission and peer review system, for BMJ Open Science. The new journal applies open science principles to preclinical research, and incorporates several innovative features in peer review.

Transparency and reproducibility are at the heart of BMJ Open Science. Not only are reviews published alongside accepted manuscripts, but even the discussions between reviewers are open to the public. This 'extreme' openness is possible due to ReView's flexible 'discussion module' that is available to editors and reviewers throughout the review process.

Amongst the features included for BMJ Open Science are River Valley's latest reporting module that literally needs no training, the facility for direct submission of preprints from bioRxiv, and a configurable implementation of CASRAI's CRediT authorship taxonomy, giving authors granular recognition for their contribution.

Inspirata collaborates with Elsevier to integrate Expertpath and Immunoquery in its diagnostic cockpit and consultation portal
- 10 Oct 2017

Cancer informatics and digital pathology workflow solution provider Inspirata®, Inc. has collaborated with Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, to integrate Elsevier's ExpertPathTM and ImmunoQuery® diagnostic decision support tools into its Digital Pathology Cockpit and cloud-based telepathology Consultation Portal. ExpertPath and ImmunoQuery empower pathologists to deliver superior diagnoses and patient care recommendations by providing rapid access to the leading source of trusted, current and high-quality clinical content.

ExpertPath is an anatomic and clinical pathology online decision support tool that equips pathologists with the expert-based information needed for diagnosing complex or unusual cases, examining a case in an unfamiliar specialty area, teaching students and residents, preparing for a lecture, as well as taking part in or preparing for a tumor board. Content includes differential diagnosis lists, ancillary tests, image galleries and specimen-handling protocols. Based on its recent analysis of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) for the pathology and radiology industry, Frost&Sullivan recently recognized ExpertPath with the 2017 North America Technology Innovation Award.

ImmunoQuery is the evidence-based decision support system for immunohistochemistry. It provides powerful meta-analysis and up-to-date references to aid in diagnosing cancer, determining the stage and grade of a tumor and identifying where in the patient's body the cancer originated. Its database is fully referenced with abstract access, enabling pathologists to compare more than 2,000 diagnoses from all pathology specialties. The information is up-to-date and statistically significant with more than 1,800,000 cases from peer-reviewed literature.

ASM and Publons partner to bring recognition to peer reviewers
- 09 Oct 2017

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has announced a partnership with Publons to support scientists who agree to serve as reviewers of manuscripts submitted to the ASM Journals. Through the partnership, ASM reviewers are able to seamlessly keep a record of every review performed for ASM's journals, past and present. Reviewers can use these records as evidence of their previously hidden contributions to ASM's esteemed scholarly journals.

Publons works with peer reviewers, academic publishers, and research institutions to make peer review a rewarding activity. Established in 2013, the company collects information from peer reviewers and publishers to produce comprehensive reviewer profiles with publisher-verified peer review contributions that researchers can add to their resume without breaking reviewer anonymity. ASM began working with Publons in 2015 on a pilot program to offer ASM reviewers a streamlined approach to tracking and verifying all reviews contributed to 14 participating journals: Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Clinical Microbiology Reviews, Clinical and Vaccine Immunology, Eukaryotic Cell, Infection and Immunity, Journal of Bacteriology, Journal of Clinical Microbiology, Journal of Virology, mBio, Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews, Molecular and Cellular Biology, mSphere, and mSystems.

Following the success of the partnership to date, ASM is looking at ways to continue leveraging the Publons platform to further enhance the reviewer experience. With more touch points and insights into reviewer and editor preferences, behaviour, and performance, ASM is looking forward to the many additional tools and features Publons has planned around reviewer discovery, training, and engagement.
