PLOS and GARDP collaborate to launch new channel for the antimicrobial resistance community
- 24 May 2018

PLOS, in collaboration with the Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership (GARDP), announced the launch of the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Channel during the World Health Assembly, Geneva. This new channel offers the AMR research community access to the latest research, as well as commentaries, blogs, news and discussions that span science, research and development, policy and public health in the fight against AMR.

AMR is a serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society. Despite the international attention directed at AMR, and many policy discussions for developing new antibiotics accessible to all, the situation remains a major global concern. Key challenges include improving infection prevention, limiting unnecessary use of antibiotics, and using existing antibiotics appropriately in humans, animals, and in agriculture.

The PLOS AMR Channel is a resource for the AMR community to discover, explore and keep up to date with the latest scientific literature, commentaries, blogs, and news. Channel Editors comprise leading experts who will collate content to increase awareness of the AMR crisis, encourage research collaboration that integrates science, policy and public health, as well as highlight critical content in the fight against AMR. A holistic approach to research is urgently needed to provide the evidence-base for well-informed policy-making, governance, and funding.

Springer Nature, Cambridge University Press, Thieme and ResearchGate announce new cooperation agreement for sharing of academic journal articles legally
- 20 Apr 2018

Three publishers - Springer Nature, Cambridge University Press, Thieme - and ResearchGate have announced a new cooperation agreement to work together on the sharing of articles on the scholarly collaboration platform in a way that protects the rights of authors and publishers. The agreement ultimately involves publishers who want to help and support content sharing and believe that working with ResearchGate, the largest professional network for scientists and academics, is one of the important means to achieving this.

As part of the agreement ResearchGate and publishers will cooperate in educating users about their rights in relation to copyright-protected content by providing users with more and better information about how and when they may share their journal articles on the network; ResearchGate will continue to promptly remove copyright-infringing content when alerted by publishers; Publishers will get better visibility into the usage of new content on the platform that was originally published in their journals.

This agreement is the culmination of discussions between publishers and ResearchGate announced last autumn. It shows that cooperation on the sharing of publisher content can be found and demonstrates the commitment from all parties to ensuring researchers are able to access and share high quality scholarly research responsibly.

This development complements Springer Nature's SharedIt service, which enables the legal sharing of subscription content. SharedIt covers more than 2,700 journals and in its first year links generated by it were viewed 3.2 million times.

National Academy of Medicine launches online resource hubs on clinician burnout and well-being
- 23 Mar 2018

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has launched the Clinician Well-Being Knowledge Hub, a comprehensive online repository for health system leaders, clinicians, and trainees that contains resources highlighting promising approaches for combating clinician burnout, such as research and news articles, toolkits, peer-reviewed literature, and reports.

More than half of U.S. physicians experience burnout, a syndrome characterized by a high degree of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a low sense of personal accomplishment at work. Nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals are also experiencing high rates of burnout, putting an unsustainable strain on the health care system.

Improving clinician well-being requires sustained action at the organisational, state, and national levels. This knowledge hub provides a comprehensive overview of the causes of clinician burnout; its consequences for healthcare professionals, patients, and their families; and innovative approaches that organizations can take to promote well-being.

Launched in 2017, the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience is a network of organisations committed to reversing trends in clinician burnout, with the goals of raising the visibility of clinician burnout, improving understanding of challenges to clinician well-being, and elevating evidence-based, multidisciplinary solutions that will improve patient care by caring for the caregiver. The Action Collaborative will host a public meeting on May 2 in Washington, D.C. The meeting will feature Expressions of Clinician Well-Being, a pop-up art exhibition focused on clinician well-being.

Earth and Space Science Open Archive beta preprint server now open for submissions
- 09 Feb 2018

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Atypon has announced that the Earth and Space Science Open Archive (ESSOAr), a community server for the open dissemination of Earth and space science early research outputs is now live and available in a fully functioning Beta release for researchers to begin submitting preprints and posters, and for community use and feedback.

A preprint is a freely accessible communication, traditionally a scholarly manuscript, not yet published in a peer-reviewed outlet, such as a journal. In addition to hosting preprints that represent new research findings, ESSOAr will preserve posters from scientific conferences and allow them to be fully citable. Future release plans include the ability to post other types of rich conference presentations and a simplified manuscript submission transfer process. All content posted on ESSOAr will be freely accessible.

With more than 50,000 posters presented across Earth and space science conferences each year, these presentations can add to the understanding of the scientific process, help accelerate discovery, and allow researchers to receive credit for this work. Preservation on ESSOAr ensures they are archived and remain discoverable. ESSOAr will also allow researchers the chance to receive peer feedback on manuscripts to improve their final published output, and facilitates faster, open dissemination of research.Leveraging the new preprint capabilities of Atypon's Literatum online publishing platform, ESSOAr offers researchers seamless single sign on via their ORCID credentials and a user-friendly one-page submission process with drag-and-drop functionality to quickly submit content. Research outputs posted on ESSOAr are fully citable via digital object identifier (DOI), and their citations and attributions will be automated via CrossRef linking between the preprint and final published version of the article. Altmetric badges will track online attention and mentions.

The beta launch of the server is the result of a community effort guided by an international advisory board led by AGU that includes representatives from societies across the Earth and space sciences including the American Geosciences Institute, American Meteorological Society, Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, Earth Science Information Partners, European Geosciences Union, Geochemical Society, Geological Society of America, Japan Geoscience Union, Mineralogical Society of America, Seismological Society of America, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and Soil Science Society of America, and powered by Atypon. Its initial development is supported by Wiley, AGU's publishing partner.

ESSOAr also has an editorial board drawn from across all scientific disciplines the server covers. Editorial board members provide a screening of all content submitted to ESSOAr, including checks for plagiarism, and offensive, dangerous, and/or non-scientific content. Rapid screening of content is supported through a streamlined Advisor Dashboard.

ESSOAr will continue to release updates with new features and functionality throughout 2018 and beyond.
