Research4Life partners commit to free and low cost access&training through 2025
- 25 Jul 2018

The Research4Life partners have agreed to extend their partnership through 2025. Research4Life currently provides over 8,500 institutions in more than 100 developing countries with free or low cost access to peer-reviewed eResources from the world's leading scholarly publishers. The renewed commitment will ensure that nearly 85,000 peer reviewed academic journals, books and databases from some 200 scholarly publishers available through the public-private Research4life partnership will continue to reach research communities in low- and middle-income countries.

Research4Life is a public-private partnership of the WHO, FAO, UNEP, WIPO, ILO, Cornell and Yale Universities, the International Association of Scientific, Technical&Medical Publishers and up to 175 international publishers. Research4Life aims to reduce the knowledge gap between high-income countries and low- and middle-income countries by providing affordable access to scholarly, professional and research information.

Since 2002, the five programmes - Research in Health (Hinari), Research in Agriculture (AGORA), Research in the Environment (OARE), Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) and Research for Global Justice (GOALI) - have provided researchers at more than 8500 institutions in more than 115 low- and middle-income countries with free or low-cost online access to up to 85,000 leading journals and books in the fields of health, agriculture, environment, and applied sciences.

CAB Direct and ORCID integrate to help authors identify and claim their publications
- 25 Jul 2018

CABI has announced that its CAB Direct platform, a gateway to the most thorough and extensive source of reference in the applied life sciences, now supports ORCID, giving authors an easy way to identify and claim their publications.

ORCID provides researchers with a personal, persistent identifier or iD, distinguishing each from every other researcher. The ORCID system is used globally and has over five million registered users.

CAB Direct has over 12 million records and indexes more than 350,000 new articles every year from over 3,600 publishers in 120 countries, including non-English titles and journals published by smaller independent publishers, as well as grey literature, conference proceedings, and open access publications.

The new integration between CAB Direct and ORCID enables authors to claim publication types indexed in CAB Direct, including journal articles, conference proceedings, and grey literature.

The ORCID button, which appears in the Actions tool bar, allows authors of publications indexed in CAB Direct to confirm their authorship with a simple click. Using CAB Direct's personalisation feature, My CABI, users connect their ORCID account and export the metadata of their publications from CAB Direct into their ORCID account. At the same time, the author's ORCID iD is added alongside their name in the relevant abstracts. My CABI also builds a portfolio of claimed publications in each user's My Works section, making it easy for authors to see the titles they have exported from CAB Direct.

Their workflows are simplified through powerful collection management tools working with many acquisition models including demand-driven acquisition (DDA) and access-to-own (ATO) - and tight integrations with library management systems such as the Alma system from Ex Libris.

Elsevier and M*Modal collaborate to launch next-generation diagnostic decision support workflow
- 23 Jul 2018

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, and part of RELX Group, has entered into an agreement to offer its STATdx® online radiology diagnostic decision support tool through M*Modal Fluency for Imaging®, an advanced speech recognition and workflow management system, to deliver the next generation of diagnostic decision support. This combined solution is being demonstrated during the Association of Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2018 annual meeting in Orlando from July 22-25.

STATdx, written by renowned radiologists in each specialty and widely regarded as the 'gold standard' of radiology reference solutions, increases accuracy and confidence in diagnosing complex imaging cases and includes more than 4,000 common and complex diagnoses, 200,000 expert-selected and annotated image examples, 20,000 easily sortable patient cases with cine clips for select topics and much more.

Elsevier's STATdx received two prestigious awards in 2017. STATdx received Frost&Sullivan's 2017 North America Technology Innovation Award. STATdx also received top honours in the Digital and Online Resources category at the British Medical Association's awards.

Currently, medical knowledge is growing at such a rapid pace that clinicians cannot keep up. Reliable information sources are not easily accessible, and healthcare providers must rely on limited sets of information to determine diagnoses. Also, the content from clinician notes is not always in the correct context, which can cause confusion and errors in decision-making. This situation can be resolved by deep workflow integration with intelligent search that connects radiologists with content in the appropriate context to make quicker, more confident diagnosis.

Ambassador and Cengage enhance integration, providing instant access codes for digital content
- 20 Jul 2018

Ambassador Education Solutions and Cengage have extended their partnership with an enhanced integration that simplifies the way students obtain and use access codes for digital course materials. Students can now redeem instant access codes for their Cengage Digital Courseware at the same time they receive all of their course materials from Ambassador, making the entire process more timely and seamless.

Traditionally, upon ordering digital course materials, students would receive further instructions and access codes to retrieve content and course resources. Ambassador took notice that a significant number of inquiries came from students who had misplaced their codes. Ambassador and Cengage recognised an opportunity to ease and expedite the process for students, giving them instant access to their digital course materials at the point of sale when course materials are top of mind.

Throughout Ambassador's partnership with Cengage, the two have customised print and digital course materials programs that put the right resources in students' hands, the right way, at the right price. Both companies are focused on accessibility and affordability, making sure students have the tools they need to succeed.
