Healthcare media and publishing company UBM Medica's Eye Care Group has announced the launch of Modern Retina, a new clinical and educational website for retina specialists.

Built upon the success of Ophthalmology Times, Modern Retina focuses on the latest innovations in the areas of retinal surgery, clinical information, research, pharmaceutical advancements, technology, and practice management. By meeting current informational needs and filling existing educational gaps, Modern Retina helps retinal physicians focus more on improved patient care.

Industry leaders are invited to join the UBM Medica Eyecare Team for the launch of Modern Retina at the Retina World Congress, taking place February 23 - 26, 2017.

Springer Nature launches Recommended - connecting researchers with research that matters to them
- 23 Feb 2017

Publisher Springer Nature has launched Recommended, a new service which connects the research community with the most relevant content. The service has been developed in response to the extensive and rapid increase in published research which makes it difficult for researchers to keep up to date with developments in their specific fields. It is the first such service from a publisher, in which specific recommendations from across all published literature are generated by algorithm.

Recommended makes suggestions of primary research papers which are drawn from over 65 million papers, are chosen irrespective of publisher, and are algorithmically tailored to the individual researchers' interests.

The creation of this service by Springer Nature is in keeping with its work as a proactive partner to the research community and an industry pioneer, developing products and services that researchers most need to advance discovery.

An initial survey sent to 4,000 nature.com users was undertaken in 2015 to understand the challenges users face as researchers and to identify ways in which Springer Nature could support them. The survey confirmed the challenge associated with a previously identified trend: a rapidly increasing volume of research is being published and researchers are struggling to find the time to identify the most relevant papers. Research published in 2014 found that the total number of articles has been growing at an average 6.3% p.a., from 1.3 million in 2003 to 2.4 million in 2013. The nature.com survey found that 85% of researchers felt that they were probably missing relevant papers in their field in a typical month and a quarter of respondents said that most weeks they do not feel up to date. Following this survey and additional focus groups and individual interviews with international researchers, Springer Nature developed Recommended to support researchers in managing this challenge.

Recommended is a personalised service that suggests relevant primary research papers to users, either in their browsers when they are on Springer Nature publishing websites (Nature, BioMed Central and SpringerLink), or in regular emails. Powered by an adaptive algorithm, Recommended learns about users' individual research interests by analysing the last 100 papers read across Springer Nature's publishing websites. Recommended then searches for similar primary papers to the users' reading history, utilising over 65 million papers from over 45,000 journals in CrossRef and PubMed. These are then combined with data from other sources, such as Altmetric, to create a recommendation score to pick the top, most relevant, primary research papers recommendations to deliver to users. Recommended continually learns and improves based on how the users interact with its suggestions.

Frontiers in Medicine launches new specialty section - Translational Medicine
- 21 Feb 2017

Frontiers in Medicine has launched a new specialty section - Translational Medicine. The section is led by Prof. Hans-Dieter Volk, Director of the Institute for Medical Immunology at the Medical Faculty (Charité) of Humboldt University, Berlin and Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT). Prof. Volk's key research area is clinical immunology, specifically the immunology of infection, transplantation regenerative medicine and allograft rejection.

This new section of Frontiers in Medicine on Translational Medicine aims to bring together the stakeholders of the field, as editors, reviewers and authors, to provide constructive feedback to one another with the goal of further enabling the translation of basic research findings and clinical observations into meaningful improvements in patient outcomes.

The Translational Medicine section of Frontiers in Medicine forms a pivotal part of the new vision for the journal. The journal publishes the latest research results and medical knowledge that facilitate the translation of scientific advances into new therapies or diagnostic tools.

The section is now open for submission. Those interested to join the editorial board, propose a thematic collection of articles, or submit a manuscript may direct all inquiries to the Editorial Office at medicine@frontiersin.org.

NISO publishes updated version of ResourceSync Framework Specification
- 17 Feb 2017

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the formal publication of an updated version of the ResourceSync Framework Specification (ANSI/NISO Z39.99-2017). Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), this 1.1 revision improves a web standard that details various capabilities that a server can implement to allow third-party systems to remain synchronised with evolving resources. Such synchronisation is important in the current landscape where Web-based content-not only the metadata about the content-is constantly changing.

ResourceSync was first published as ANSI/NISO Z39.99 in 2014. The standard, also known as the ResourceSync 'core' specification, offers a range of easy-to-implement capabilities that a server may support in order to enable remote systems to remain more tightly in step with its evolving resources. It also describes how a server should advertise the facilities it supports, and presents plentiful examples and use cases that offer guidance for implementation. The recent revisions to the standard, which is pull-based, reflect changes to fix problems related to the conflation of last modification date of a resource and the datetime of notification of a change to the resource.

The ResourceSync specification and video tutorials on using the ANSI/NISO Z39.99-2017 standard are available on the NISO website at www.niso.org/workrooms/resourcesync/.
