Thieme announces latest SOS 4.11 release, Science of Synthesis gets content boost
- 09 Aug 2018

Science of Synthesis 4.11, the latest release of Thieme's knowledge base for synthetic methodology, features insights on carbolines and S,S-acetals as well as catalytic reduction. The update consists of a reference library volume as well as a new Knowledge Update, comprising approximately 970 pages of new content.

Available a mere two weeks after publication of the hard copy, Knowledge Update 2018/2 features a major new chapter on carbolines or pyrido[X,Y-b]indoles by J. A. Joule. The chapter covers the synthesis of all four regioisomeric heterocyclic systems found in both natural products and pharmaceuticals. Highlights of this release also include an introductory chapter on S,S-acetals by T.-Y. Luh and M.k. Leung, describing their use as protecting groups for carbonyl compounds and as alternative functional groups for further transformations. Also included are new knowledge-base chapters on the synthesis of 1,3-dithietanes and 1,3-dithiolanes by T.-Y. Luh, M.k. Leung, and C.-M. Chou, as the latter are particularly important as masked carbonyl compounds.

The new Knowledge Update volume comprises a total of approximately 500 printed pages representing the most up-to-date and reliable synthetic methods. SOS Knowledge Updates are governed by clearly defined criteria for method selection as well as established editorial processes. Due in great part to this discerning and continuous updating process, SOS prevails as one of the most up-to-date evaluated electronic reference works available, emphasizing the most significant developments in synthetic methodology.

Following the addition of the first volume with SOS 4.10 in March, SOS 4.11 now expands the Reference Library with Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis, Vol. 2 edited by J. G. de Vries. This volume, like Volume 1, includes the latest developments in the field of catalytic reductions. In addition to covering both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic systems, Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis offers a good representation of enantioselective methodology. Comprising 468 printed pages, Volume 2 focuses on carbonyl group reductions, with contributions on the reduction of aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids and derivatives. Also covered are important reductions of specific functional groups including nitriles, azides, and nitro compounds.

With expert evaluated content focusing on subjects of particular current interest, the SOS Reference Library complements the SOS Knowledge Updates to make SOS the complete information source for the modern synthetic chemist.

Cochrane redesigns its online platform to guide health decision-making across the world
- 08 Aug 2018

Cochrane has announced that the Cochrane Library, which provides high-quality, independently produced evidence to inform healthcare decision-making, has been redesigned and enhanced to improve user experience and functionality.

Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. Cochrane contributors and groups produce high-quality systematic reviews, which collate and summarise the best available evidence on the effects of interventions, to inform decisions about health. Cochrane Reviews are recognised internationally as representing a gold standard for high-quality, trusted information, and are published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, one of the databases within the Cochrane Library.

The new online platform, designed in collaboration with Cochrane's publisher Wiley and built by the technology platform provider HighWire, includes several features that will improve the user experience for people whose preferred language is not English, including improved visibility of non-English content, a new Spanish language homepage, and the ability to search in different languages. The new Cochrane Library also delivers a series of improved design features and functionality and allows users to search across varying content types, including Cochrane Reviews and Protocols, CENTRAL trials reports, Cochrane Clinical Answers, Editorials, Special Collections, and other systematic reviews from Epistemonikos, a collaborative, multilingual database of health evidence.

RedLink upgrades Publisher Dashboard, announces enhanced product view
- 08 Aug 2018

RedLink recently announced the launch of a significant upgrade to its popular usage data analytics system, Publisher Dashboard.

Publisher Dashboard helps publishers see what they're missing by providing intuitive visualisations and powerful tools for analysis of customer online usage, cost, and renewal data. By highlighting trends in full text usage and denials by discipline, publication date, title, and usage by consortia, Publisher Dashboard makes identifying opportunities and risks simple and fast. With a cloud-based interface available 24/7, sales teams and sales agents can be even more effective with access to data by territory and by customer.

The newly enhanced Product View makes it even easier to review usage at the product level, identifying top institutions, countries, and usage patterns over time. Products can be compared, and the data and visualisations easily exported or saved. Sales, Marketing, Editors and editorial staff will value the ability to review the product portfolio both at the top level, and with the ability to drill down in detail to see trends and make comparisons. This significant enhancement has been rolled out to current Publisher Dashboard customers automatically.

SAE International to publish new IAASS standard for commercial space travel and exploration
- 07 Aug 2018

SAE International has announced that it will publish a new standard developed by the International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety (IAASS).

With commercial space exploration a reality, the need for safety certification is crucial. To date, no such set of standards existed. IAASS-SSI-1700 Safety Standard: Commercial Human-Related Spaced Standard brings together more than 60 years of experience accumulated throughout government space programs. The requirements outlined in the document are intended to protect the flight personnel (i.e., crew and flight participants), the vehicle and relevant launcher or carrier, and any other interfacing system from spaceflight hazards.

IAASS is a non-profit organisation dedicated to furthering international cooperation and scientific advancement in the field of space systems safety. The Association exists to help shape and advance an international culture of space safety (technical, organizational and socio-political), which would contribute to make space missions, vehicles, stations, extraterrestrial habitats, equipment and payloads safer for the general public, ground personnel, crews and flight participants. The Association also pursues the safeguarding and sustainability of the on-orbit environment to allow unimpeded access to space by future generations.
