Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte opens new TechHub at Elsevier's global headquarters
- 07 Feb 2019

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte opened a new TechHub at the Amsterdam global headquarters of information analytics business Elsevier, a subsidiary of RELX Group. The TechHub will enable world-class talent to combine large data sets with global technology platforms and advanced analytics to create digital tools that help researchers and health workers make better decisions. The Prime Minister's visit was part of his tour of several prominent and innovative international technology companies and start-ups operating in the Amsterdam region.

The TechHub is Elsevier's center of excellence, where world-class talent will work on developing innovative technologies that will allow Elsevier to turn information into actionable knowledge for users in science, healthcare and government sectors. In 2018 the TechHub grew by over 50 people, with Elsevier targeting an additional 80 or more new hires into the organisation in 2019. Elsevier is planning to have around 200 technologists based in the Amsterdam office by 2020, demonstrating the business' commitment to attracting and retaining high-quality tech talent to the benefit of the Dutch knowledge economy.

During his visit, Mr. Rutte was given a tour of cutting-edge technology demonstrations from RELX Group businesses including Elsevier, ThreatMetrix, Accuity and LexisNexis.

Presentations covered how artificial intelligence is used to integrate evidence-based content into the healthcare process and help improve patient outcomes; how to support Dutch universities with information systems in research; how digital fraud can be combatted; how to support trade officers make decisions about potential harmful, dual-use goods; and how government officials can stay up-to-date on news about relevant topics. Each demonstration showed the company's commitment to serving professionals in the Netherlands by helping scientists, doctors, universities and financial institutions thrive in an ever-changing, data and technology-driven work environment.

The Critical Ultrasound Journal changes name to The Ultrasound Journal
- 06 Feb 2019

The Critical Ultrasound Journal, the official journal of the WINFOCUS (World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound), will change its name to The Ultrasound Journal to reflect the expanding scope of ultrasound in medicine and the inclusive nature of WINFOCUS and the journal.

While ultrasound is a 'critical' component of health care decisions and practice, having 'critical' in the name of the journal has led to some confusion as to the content of the journal, especially for those interested in non-critical care use of ultrasound and potential authors. In addition, the level of interest in ultrasound has greatly expanded among practitioners of all specialties and sub-specialties and levels of care. This has been accompanied by a corresponding explosion of interest in ultrasound education and research.

It is expected that The Ultrasound Journal will not only continue the high level of scholarly publication of the Critical Ultrasound Journal but also provide an expanded view of ultrasound scholarly activity, offer opportunities for more authors to publish their important work, and better convey our goal of disseminating important advances across the spectrum of ultrasound.

ProQuest and Ex Libris expand investment in Latin America
- 08 Jan 2019

ProQuest and Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, are expanding their commitment to their Latin American customers and users, opening three new offices in the region and hiring additional local staff. Grupo Sistemas Logicos, a distributor that has represented Ex Libris in the region, will join the ProQuest family. These investments will enable ProQuest and Ex Libris to work directly with libraries, ensuring high quality service and a smooth transition from working through distributors.

Under the leadership of Boe Horton, ProQuest Sales Vice President, offices will open in Chile, Colombia and Mexico, adding to the current office in Brazil. Existing and new customers will be served by local ProQuest and Ex Libris staff, providing customers with a direct connection for product knowledge, service, training and to provide feedback on products used in the region. The local team will service both ProQuest and Ex Libris product portfolios, eliminating multiple points of contact and ensuring a smoother acquisition workflow for libraries.

A small number of distributors will continue to help with selected product lines and market segments. However, most products and services that libraries licensed from distributors - resources such as ProQuest Central, Academic Complete, ProQuest Dissertations&Theses Global, ABI/INFORM Collection, SciTech Premium Collection and Literature Online, as well as Ex Libris Alma, Primo, Summon, Leganto, RefWorks, 360Link and Pivot - will now be sold and serviced directly by the ProQuest/Ex Libris staff in the region.

ProQuest/Ex Libris is hiring experienced staff with existing relationships with the region's librarians, ensuring a smooth transition and knowledgeable service for customers.

HMP renames Ostomy Wound Management journal to Wound Management&Prevention
- 04 Jan 2019

Healthcare Made Practical (HMP), a leader in healthcare events and education, has announced that its premier wound care journal, Ostomy Wound Management, has been renamed Wound Management&Prevention. The name change not only reflects the shift seen in the healthcare industry to a broader focus on all aspects of wound care, but it also matches the journal's already evolving content covering these expanded topic areas.

Founded in March of 1980 as Ostomy Management, the small journal dramatically expanded its content and readership within five years by embracing the overlapping disciplines of ostomy care, wound care, incontinence care, and related skin and nutritional issues. It quickly became the premier journal of its kind. Readers of both the print and digital formats include more than 25,000 health care professionals from multiple disciplines, including nurses at all levels of practice, physical therapists, dietitians, physicians and researchers.

Articles published in Wound Management&Prevention will continue to ascribe to policies outlined by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, which stipulates each manuscript has undergone a rigorous double-blind peer review. The journal will also feature sponsored columns provided by manufacturers to elucidate the science behind their products and to offer evidence of their appropriate and successful use; additional features include Pediatric Wound Care: Asking the Right Questions (case studies illustrating the latest neonatal and pediatric scenarios relevant to this clinical niche); My Scope of Practice (featuring a day-in-the-life of a peer-nominated clinician); Special Report (miscellaneous news of interest); and various opportunities for editorial insights and feedback. Material available exclusively online includes Industry Spotlight and several rotating columns addressing quality and safety, quick practice tips, and case studies.

Chemistry Central Journal to be renamed as BMC Chemistry, will join the BMC series as its first chemistry title
- 29 Nov 2018

Chemistry Central Journal, a journal that has served the chemistry community as a trusted resource for more than a decade, will be renamed to BMC Chemistry in January 2019. The journal will join the BMC series as its first chemistry title.

Chemistry Central Journal launched in 2007, as the flagship of BMC's spin-off imprint, Chemistry Central. This was at a formative era for OA publishing and Chemistry Central Journal was a true pioneer in open chemistry. Over its first decade, Chemistry Central Journal published over a thousand fully OA papers, and in 2017 alone, papers published in the journal were accessed more than half a million times.

The scholarly publishing world has changed a lot since 2007. There are many more journals, many more ways to publish papers, data and research, and while there is still a lot to do, OA continues to grow even outside of the disciplines where it first found a home. Chemistry Central Journal is published by Springer Nature, as part of the BMC brand of OA journals, and is leading the expansion of BMC into the physical sciences.

As BMC Chemistry, the journal will further strengthen the BMC series footprint in the physical sciences by publishing quality articles and by pushing the boundaries of open chemistry.

Its new home, the BMC series, is a collection of high-quality, peer-reviewed journals covering all scientific and clinical disciplines, focusing on the needs of the research communities which they serve. It will share the BMC series ethos of presenting quality research to the community, with an emphasis on transparency and openness in both publishing and science. As such, BMC Chemistry will be well placed to continue its mission into the next decade and beyond - as a true pioneer of open chemistry.

BMC Chemistry aspires to contribute towards Springer Nature's Grand Challenge Programme with a focus on sustainability, climate change and food-energy-water nexus by facilitating research across a wide range of chemistry disciplines.

On a technical level, the journal's history will continue in its refreshed form as BMC Chemistry. The journal's rigorous peer-review and complete publication history will remain part of the journal - all previous papers will remain part of the journal and continue to be permanently and freely available to all. The journal will continue to be indexed as normal in Scopus, SCIE, PubMed and others. The journal's impact factor will continue, but will transition over a three-year period to the new title.

The journal is supported by an international Editorial Advisory Board of senior scientists and researchers that is chaired by Professor R. Stephen Berry, one of the founders and current Editor-in-Chief for Chemistry Central Journal, who is a highly respected thought leader in chemistry from the University of Chicago.
