The BMJ and Harvard Global Health Institute launch special collection
- 23 May 2018

The BMJ in partnership with the Harvard Global Health Institute has launched a special collection of articles that will explore how to achieve effective universal health coverage (UHC).

The collection will highlight the importance of quality in UHC, potential finance models, how best to incentivise stakeholders, and uncover some of the barriers to true UHC.

The collection coincides with a panel discussion at the 71st World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva entitled Quality Care: Delivering on the Promise of UHC.

Speaking alongside Health Ministers and representatives from the World Bank, World Health Organization and OECD will be Dr Kamran Abbasi, Executive Editor at The BMJ and Professor Ashish Jha at the Harvard Global Health Institute.

UHC refers to a system which seeks to provide everyone, everywhere with access to essential quality health services without facing financial hardship. It is a key target of the UN sustainable development goals and a top priority for the WHO.

According to Wilhemina Jallah, Minister of Health of the Republic of Liberia and colleagues, in a linked article, investing in community health workers accelerates universal health coverage.

They describe a program to hire, train, and equip nearly 3000 community health assistants and over 300 nurse supervisors that has led to remarkable progress in tackling common childhood diseases and supporting pregnant women.

In a second linked article, Professor Adolfo Rubinstein, Minister of Health of Argentina, outlines how they are building more effective health care coverage in Argentina. Reforms include setting up provincial public insurance schemes, creating a transparent process for setting priorities, reducing disparities in effective coverage, and building a primary care oriented health care system.

All the articles will be available at https://www.bmj.com/universal-health-coverage

Digital Science announces Dimensions integration of ORCID
- 22 May 2018

Dimensions, the linked research information system from Digital Science, has announced a new collaboration with ORCID. The collaboration will make it possible for authors to connect their ORCID iD to Dimensions and import their publication metadata from Dimensions into to their ORCID record.

A non-profit organisation supported by the global scholarly community, ORCID provides individual, persistent digital identifiers that millions of researchers are using in key research workflows to ensure their contributions are more easily and accurately discovered and cited.

Dimensions offers free search and discovery for over 91 million publications, and is a reliable, structured source for researchers looking to explore the latest research and stay up to date with progress in their field.

Users will now be able to connect their ORCID iD to their Dimensions account, and will have the option to export publication information to ORCID simply by clicking on an 'Add to ORCID' button alongside each publications listing in Dimensions.

In addition to enabling authors to claim publications from within Dimensions, public data from ORCID are also now being used to support algorithmic author disambiguation across the platform. Where made available by the researcher, biographical details from ORCID are shown on the author's Dimensions profile.
