Pistoia Alliance's UDM team release first file format specification for chemical reaction information exchange
- 02 Jul 2018

The Pistoia Alliance UDM project team - including members from BIOVIA, GSK, Novartis, and Roche - has announced the first release of the now-open Unified Data Model (UDM) file format specification which will facilitate the exchange of information about chemical reactions. The new update consists of a definition of the UDM file format (as an XML schema document), several sample datasets, and sample source code (in Python and Java) that demonstrate the conversion to the UDM file format and validation of UDM files.

The original unified representation of chemical reactions was co-developed by Elsevier and Roche with contributions from other pharmaceutical companies. It was donated to The Pistoia Alliance in 2017 with the aim of extending the model to support additional requirements, and to increase its adoption as a vendor-agnostic experimental reaction/data format standard.

The current release is compatible with the original version created by Elsevier; it will remove the previous uncertainty around the units of measurement used for individual numerical values and documents fundamental entities. It is expected that the update will facilitate the exchange of information about chemical reactions, and show the industry how it can work with UDM files. Going forward, the team is looking to introduce several enhancements which will increase representation of experiments captured in electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs).

SAGE Publishing to begin publishing the journal Feminist Review
- 29 Jun 2018

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced that it will begin publishing the journal Feminist Review from January 2019.

Since 1979 Feminist Review has adopted a creative approach to the discipline, addressing the relationship between theory and practice, using the research to push the feminist agenda in new directions and prioritising an intersectional feminist politics. Because of this, the journal has become an influential platform for debate.

Along with academic articles the journal publishes experimental pieces, visual and textual media and political interventions, including interviews, short stories, poems and photographic essays. Beginning publication with SAGE in 2019, the journal will be a published three times a year, in March, July and October.

Working with SAGE will help the development and enhance the impact of the journal within the field.

The journal has been challenging the ideas of gender, culture, race, class and sexuality for nearly 40 years. Expanding the boundaries of the debate around feminism, the journal is an influential platform for global engagement.

SSRN launches Preprints with The Lancet, a new preprint series for sharing early stage health and medical research
- 29 Jun 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced that SSRN, its preprint server and early stage research platform, has launched the 'Preprints with The Lancet' - a new preprint series for sharing early stage health and medical research.

The collaboration brings together SSRN with The Lancet as part of a six-month pilot to assess whether the health and medical community are ready for this form of early research sharing.

Preprints are research papers that are at the submission stage or can be described as on-going research. By sharing online, authors widen the opportunity for receiving comments on their work by other researchers with the goal of an improved final peer-reviewed publication and for exchange of research areas with the future potential for collaboration. Preprints are primarily intended for research use; they have not been through the important steps of peer review and experienced editorial scrutiny and guidance that is part of the publishing process. All papers on 'Preprints with The Lancet' will be free to upload and download.

Authors of all research papers submitted to any Lancet family journal, will be asked at submission whether they would like their paper to be posted - as a preprint, an opt-in that all co-authors must agree to. Authors can also submit their papers through SSRN directly.

Submitted papers will be subject to SSRN's usual checks to ensure that the paper is part of the scholarly discourse, in a subject area covered by one or more of SSRN's networks. A Lancet editor will then check the paper and ensure the authors have provided a statement about the funding of the study; a summarised declaration of interests for all authors; a statement on ethics approval or why the research was exempted; and if the research is a randomised trial, confirmation that it has been prospectively registered along with the trial registration number. Once a final version of a preprint paper is peer-reviewed and published and becomes part of the scientific evidence as the version of record, authors are encouraged to link to the preprint of the published paper.

Bioanalysis publishes special focus issue on Biomarker Assay Validation
- 28 Jun 2018

Bioanalysis, a MEDLINE indexed journal for bioanalysts, has released its Special Focus Issue on 'Biomarker Assay Validation (BAV)'.

This Special Focus Issue will offer readers of the journal an insight into the various issues that exist surrounding the BAV, how these issues have evolved over the years, as well as the recent regulatory activities around these.

This issue was guest edited by Steven Piccoli (Neoteric) and Fabio Garofolo (Angelini Pharma).

In this issue, parallelism assessments in LBA biomarker assay development and validation, clinical biomarker validation, the evolution of fit-for-purpose biomarker validations as well as many other important topics are discussed by experts and key opinion leaders in the biomarker field.

Another highlight of this issue is the progress update for the C-Path White Paper on the joint FDA &C-Path Initiative collaboration on analytical validation of biomarker assays used in the FDA biomarker qualification process.

The full issue is available online here at http://www.future-science.com/toc/bio/10/12.

ACM to publish new journal - ACM Digital Threats: Research and Practice
- 28 Jun 2018

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest computing society, has announced the forthcoming publication of ACM Digital Threats: Research and Practice (DTRAP), a new peer-reviewed journal that targets the prevention, identification, mitigation and elimination of digital threats. DTRAP aims to promote the development of scientific rigour in digital security by bridging the gap between academic research and industry practice. Submissions for the inaugural issue to be published in 2019 are now being accepted via the DTRAP website.

In addition to research articles, DTRAP will invite contributions to two regular columns: 'With the Benefit of Hindsight' and 'Leaving the Laboratory: Putting Research into Practice.' 'With the Benefit of Hindsight' will detail what authors have learned from past cybersecurity successes or failures, exploring themes such as lessons learned during a security event, how the landscape has changed since the event, and what further development remains to be done.

Each installment of 'Leaving the Laboratory' will examine a peer-reviewed research article from a recent issue of DTRAP with respect to implementing research, essentially taking the research into practice. Topics for this column will include general concerns for both researchers and practitioners that relate to doing research effectively, or examining actual changes seen in the security landscape as a result of researchers and practitioners collaborating.

In addition to Co-EICs Metcalf and Lakhotia, the DTRAP editorial team includes Managing Editor Eric Hatleback of the University of Pittsburgh and CERT, and an international team of 25 Associate Editors representing various countries including Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, and the US.
