- 17 Nov 2017

Publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc. and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) have announced a publishing partnership for the AWWA periodicals, Journal - American Water Works Association (JAWWA) and Opflow.

Beginning in January 2018, Wiley will take responsibility for the production and distribution of JAWWA and Opflow. In the second quarter of 2018, the online versions of both publications are scheduled to move to Wiley's online periodicals platform, Wiley Online Library.

Wiley Online Library's capabilities and functionality will enhance the reader experience by providing access to full back-file content, full-text search and inclusion in collections. As a benefit of membership, AWWA members will continue to have full online access to both publications by logging in through AWWA's website, www.awwa.org.

Each month, JAWWA serves as a forum for thought leaders, offering peer-reviewed research and technical articles as well as articles featuring best management practices, industry news and the most current information on regulations affecting the water industry worldwide.

Opflow, AWWA's monthly magazine, presents new and established technologies and ideas that readers can apply to water treatment and distribution, as well as wastewater operations.

BMJ Learning partners with Think Associates
- 15 Nov 2017

BMJ Learning, an international provider of online CME and postgraduate training, has teamed up with Think Associates to help healthcare professionals at UK hospitals improve their knowledge and deliver the very best care to their patients.

The partnership will provide access to BMJ Learning's Hospital Collection via Think Associates' bespoke Totara Learning Management System (LMS).

Developed with working medical and nursing staff to reflect real life situations, BMJ Learning's Hospital Collection offers e-learning that addresses critical areas for hospitals such as priority clinical conditions, safer prescribing, practical procedures, induction and preparing for life on the wards. Multiprofessional teams learn using a mixture of 3D animation, audio, images, text and clinical cases, all peer-reviewed and regularly updated to reflect the very latest guidance.

Totara Learn is a fully configurable Learning Management System (LMS) that allows organisations to manage all of their learning requirements through individual learning plans which reflect their employee's roles, training needs and objectives. Think Associates have developed specialised enhancements to Totara for healthcare organisations that allow NMC revalidation, clinical supervision and compliance reporting to be effectively managed by the system; meeting the needs of clinical, nursing and professional education teams.

With this integration, BMJ e-learning activities can form part of an individual's wider development programme and organisations will be able to manage, control access and effectively report on compliance via a single learning portal. Totara can be implemented quickly and at a fraction of the cost of proprietary solutions, providing quality and cost effective solutions to UK healthcare organisations.

Emerald journal Advances in Autism now a featured journal on ScienceOpen
- 14 Nov 2017

One of Emerald's top journals, Advances in Autism, is now a featured journal on ScienceOpen, along with three other journals integrated into the latter's citation network. The other three journals are: The Journal of Health Organization and Management, Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy and International Journal of Migration, Health and Social Care.

Advances in Autism is unique in its focus on the health and care aspects and outcomes for people with autism. The content of this journal will be a key tool in building and disseminating evidence to change the way that professionals work with people with autism and to challenge traditional assumptions and ways of working.

This trial partnership with ScienceOpen will help to increase the visibility and impact of Emerald research, by exposing the content within ScienceOpen's citation framework, and opening it up to a range of features on the platform. These include article recommendations, comments, social sharing, post-publication peer review and the addition of non-specialist supplementary content from authors, including author summaries.

All these features are integrated into ScienceOpen's multi-layered search engine in a place where people are going to discover research content. With 20 filters and 6 sort options, this will make precise discovery of content easier for researchers.

This partnership is expected to benefit Emerald with increased readership, citations and content engagement. Additionally, it will also boost authors and give them in-depth insights into the breadth of engagement with their research.
