AMIA launches FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program
- 18 Jul 2018

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has announced the launch of the Fellow of AMIA (FAMIA) Applied Informatics Recognition Program. The new program aims to recognise members who apply informatics skills and knowledge within their professional setting, who have demonstrated professional achievement and leadership, and who have contributed to the betterment of AMIA.

The use of health IT and EHRs is now ubiquitous across US hospitals and physician offices. Clinical and translational research increasingly depend on high-throughput computing and vast quantities of data. Consumers increasingly use tools and apps on their personal computers and mobile devices to collect and manage health-related information.

The field of informatics began as a science, dedicated to evaluating the use of information and communications systems in clinical care. In the intervening 60 years, informatics has grown to include a wide array of professions that leverage IT and data systems as point-of-care interventions for patients, facilitators of clinical and health services research, and how data-driven discovery of all kinds must depend.

FAMIA was established in May 2018, following several months of deliberation by an interdisciplinary Advisory Group of AMIA members to define the FAMIA Eligibility Criteria. These deliberations reaffirmed that the FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program be inclusive - balancing the needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and others within clinical informatics, with the needs of public health, clinical researchers, and others who apply informatics to their practice.

FAMIA is open to any AMIA member who directly impacts and improves healthcare, biomedical research, public health, and personal health through the practice of informatics. FAMIA candidates must demonstrate their eligibility across the following core areas: Education; Certification; Applied Informatics Experience; Peer Recommendation; AMIA Membership; AMIA Engagement; and Future Commitments.

FAMIA recognises professionals who apply informatics skills and knowledge towards the goals of enhanced personal and population health, improved organisational performance and learning, and individual empowerment in their health, care, and research.

Applications for the inaugural class of FAMIA are now open. Notifications are expected to be sent in October with a formal announcement of the new class at the AMIA 2018 Annual Symposium in November. The class will be inducted at the AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference in May 2019.

BMC launches new OA journals, expands portfolio of journals beyond biomedicine into the physical and applied sciences
- 18 Jul 2018

BMC has announced the launch of new open access journals as part of its evolving portfolio expanding beyond biomedicine into the physical and applied sciences.

The new engineering journals - BMC Biomedical Engineering and BMC Chemical Engineering - are now open for submissions, with plans for more journals to be launched in related disciplines in the coming year.

Chemical engineering and biomedical engineering are fields that combine engineering concepts with core scientific principles to develop real world solutions to the benefit of society, an increasing focus of researchers and engineers across the globe.

As part of the BMC Series portfolio, all content in the journals will be fully open access and making data associated with a manuscript freely accessible online will also be highly encouraged.

BMC has also added eight journals which were previously hosted on SpringerOpen, as part of realignment to group complementary journal titles on one platform. These are: Health&Justice; Life Sciences, Society and Policy; Evolution: Education and Outreach; International Journal for Educational Integrity; International Journal of Food Contamination; International Journal of Emergency Medicine; The Journal of Headache and Pain; and Carbon Balance and Management.

Springer Nature set to publish official journal of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy&Exploration from 2019
- 18 Jul 2018

Springer Nature, a global publisher that serves and supports the research community, will publish the international peer-reviewed journal Mining, Metallurgy&Exploration (MME) of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy&Exploration (SME), beginning January 2019 with volume 36.

This broad-based forum for the exchange of real-world findings and theoretical research is projected to be a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners in academia, industry and government institutions who are working in mining, minerals and natural resources. The journal was previously published by SME under the title Minerals&Metallurgical Processing. Its scope has now been broadened to represent the full spectrum of interests of the society.

In six issues per year, this subscription journal with open access options will publish original research, in-depth reviews, short communications, and reviews of new technologies and industrial methodologies. Mary Poulton, co-director of the Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources at the University of Arizona, heads MME as its executive editor. She is supported by three section editors-in-chief responsible for the fields of mining, minerals and exploration, respectively: Jurgen Brune at the Colorado School of Mines, Ronel Kappes at Newmont USA, and Virginia McLemore at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. In addition, MME has an international editorial board of more than 20 experts from academia, industry and government.

Publons launches reviewer search and matchmaking tool, Publons Reviewer Connect
- 17 Jul 2018

Publons - the scholarly peer review platform - has launched Publons Reviewer Connect, a reviewer search and matchmaking tool to enable journal editors to confidently and reliably find, screen, and connect with reviewers. The AI-powered technology combines Publons' cross-publisher peer review platform of more than 400k reviewers with Web of Science - the world's largest curated author and citation database to deliver a high number of precise recommendations from more than seven million authors.

Participation in peer review is a cornerstone of science and academic research; it plays a critical role in ensuring the accuracy, quality, and credibility of research papers. Refereeing can be both a heavy responsibility and an honour; members of the scholarly research community willingly take part without remuneration. As such, the entire peer-review system depends on the goodwill and availability of suitable referees.

Using Publons Reviewer Connect journal editors will be able to source expert, motivated reviewers with relevant expertise and experience. It can also provide editors with a view as to whether a candidate is available to review via a unique 'availability tool.' This means reviewers will have more control over when they receive peer review invitations and subsequently editors will have more confidence in reviewers' cross-publisher availability to participate.

The 2018 Publons' Global Reviewer Survey showed that editors often struggle to find the right candidates to participate in peer review - 71% of respondents stated that the most common reason they decline peer review invitations is because they are invited to review papers outside of their area of expertise. This is not surprising, given that Publons' 2016 Editor Survey, demonstrated that finding and recruiting peer reviewers was the most challenging part of the job for 75% of journal editors.

Publons Reviewer Connect will provide precise reviewer suggestions to journal editors to deliver comprehensive, accurate, and suitable information, to approach the right reviewers; dramatically improve productivity, save time and costs. As a result, reviewers will receive invitations to review more of the papers they care about and fewer invitations to review papers ill-suited to their expertise. Publons unique ability to work across publishers and understand reviewer workloads globally, has resulted in a tool that will speed up publisher workflows and reduce inefficiencies, ultimately accelerating the pace of research.

Publons reviewer connect is available as a standalone web interface on Publons.com and via an API immediately. Further integrations to deliver reviewer suggestions into existing workflows will be available later this year.
