ASTM International launches ASTM SpecBuilder, a collaboration platform for document development
- 12 Jul 2018

International standards organisation ASTM International has launched the ASTM SpecBuilder platform which empowers organisations to streamline collaboration and document development for internal documents such as specifications, test methods, guidelines, and procedures.

In an effort to refine the platform, the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) and others have tested SpecBuilder over the past year.

SpecBuilder provides a single platform to ensure organisations' internal drafts, comments, votes, and supporting documents, are uploaded, acted on, and archived within a single secure tool. Specifically, the tool allows team members to manage changes to documents; revise multiple documents simultaneously; accelerate voting processes; add hyperlinks to standards; streamline communications; and securely store and restart projects; and more.

Elsevier expands medication dose checking capabilities in its Gold Standard Drug Database
- 11 Jul 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, and part of RELX Group, has announced the expansion of medication dose checking capabilities in its Gold Standard Drug Database. Expanded content in Gold Standard Drug Database supports health professionals and healthcare organisations in preventing clinically and financially harmful drug dosing errors.

The dose checking content protects against excessive, inadequate and/or potentially dangerous doses to ensure optimal delivery of the patient's medication. Available within the clinical decision support suite of Gold Standard Drug Database, the dose checking content is now the most robust in the industry.

Gold Standard Drug Database exclusively offers TRUE Daily Updates to deliver advanced drug data and decision support for integration into health systems and applications. In tandem with evidence-based, peer-reviewed content, intelligent screening tools in the Gold Standard Drug Database protect against false negative alerts that can lead to unsafe drug therapy decisions, and false positive alerts that cause dangerous alert fatigue and overrides. These safeguards are designed to help reduce the nearly 700,000 emergency department visits and 100,000 hospitalizations each year due to adverse drug events (U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, ahrq.gov).

Springer Nature launches two new journals under new 'SN' imprint
- 10 Jul 2018

Springer Nature has announced the launch of two new highly inclusive, broad appeal journals in the fields of applied sciences and clinical medicine under a new imprint 'SN'. SN Applied Sciences and SN Comprehensive Clinical Medicine are the first journals to be published using the 'SN' name, an indication of the value the company believes sound science journals have to offer to the research community.

SN Comprehensive Clinical Medicine will publish articles from more than 75 medical specialities grouped under three broad categories: imaging, surgery and medicine. The scope of SN Applied Sciences reflects the increasing need for journals to publish articles on applications and industry-related research in Engineering, Technology, Earth and Environmental Science, Chemistry, Materials and Applied Physics. The journal will especially serve authors from emerging regions in the world, including those from Asia who are increasingly prolific in these subject areas.

These journals support the company's ambition of ensuring that all scientifically sound research that has been completed in these research fields and passes peer-review can be published at Springer Nature. Authors will be able to choose to publish their research either for free, with the publishing costs being covered by academic institutions via library deals or, on payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC), via open access, where these articles are universally accessible and immediately free to read from the point of publication. The journals will be open for submissions from July 2018.

African Journal of Laboratory Medicine issues call for papers for special issue on the future of diagnostics
- 09 Jul 2018

In 2019, the African Journal of Laboratory Medicine (AJLM), will publish a special issue devoted to The Future of Diagnostics. This special issue will be co-edited by Professors Timothy Amukele (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine), Ilesh Jani (Instituto Nacional de Sade, Maputo, Mozambique) and Rosanna Peeling (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). The issue aims to highlight recent advances in technology and the landscape for diagnostic innovation. It will emphasise diagnostics for high burden, emerging and neglected communicable and non-communicable diseases, particularly those that threaten or are endemic to the African continent.

AJLM invites submissions to The Future of Diagnostics that will document the promise of diagnostic development and push its boundaries. Suitable papers will include, but are not limited to, articles focused on one or more diagnostic innovations with a disease or technology focus; parallel or basic science innovations that could spur or accelerate diagnostic development; evasion of existing diagnostic tests or strategies by biological evolution; new technologies for point-of-care diagnostics (e.g. novel targets, new approaches, new disease foci or multiplex testing); provider and patient responsiveness or market intelligence in diagnostic development; laboratories and laboratory systems in the implementation of diagnostic programmes, including human resource development and quality assurance; innovations in connectivity, communication and data handling, storage and retrieval that are relevant to diagnostics; digital technology that could enhance the value of existing and future diagnostics; diagnostic policy and regulation; novel diagnostics for antimicrobial resistance; and accelerating development and deployment of diagnostics as part of epidemic preparedness.

AJLM is the African Society for Laboratory Medicine's peer-review journal. It is open access and does not charge publication fees.

All submissions are due by December 31, 2018.
