BMJ Best Practice is now better placed to support decision making at the point of care
- 20 Nov 2017

Clinical decision-making has become a little easier with the launch of a range of new features from BMJ Best Practice to help healthcare professionals make the best decisions with their patients.

Ranked one of the leading clinical decision support tools worldwide, BMJ Best Practice draws on the latest evidence-based research, guidelines and expert opinion to offer step-by-step guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention.

The new Best Practice has been developed and tested with hundreds of healthcare professionals worldwide with a focus on their key needs. As a result, it is even better placed to support decision making at the point of care.

For instance, doctors said they wanted to find the latest information quickly and easily, whenever and wherever they need it. The new BMJ Best Practice delivers on this. Information is updated daily with drug alerts added within 48 hours of publication and practice-changing updates within 30 days to ensure doctors have the latest guidance at hand. The site supports searching in over 100 languages.

The website navigation and pages have been redesigned to make finding information quicker - and the award-winning app works offline, providing access anywhere.

Other significant features include the addition of procedural videos, nearly 400 patient leaflets, over 250 evidence-based medical calculators, integrated links to Cochrane Clinical Answers and improved differential diagnosis tables and treatment algorithms.

The focus will be to encourage best practice amongst medical students and researchers to improve clinical practice.

Kudos unveils shareable PDF solution addressing illegal sharing of copyright content
- 16 Nov 2017

Kudos, the service for maximizing the reach and impact of research publications, has announced the launch of its shareable PDF solution, which helps publishers prevent copyright infringement and reclaim lost usage from sharing of research articles on scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs).

Authors of articles published by the American Thoracic Society, Emerald Publishing, FASEB and The IET can now use Kudos to create summary PDFs of their articles, for uploading to sites like ResearchGate and Academia.edu. The summary PDFs contain links to the full text on the publisher sites, enabling authors to create a record for their work in multiple places, while consolidating and measuring the usage of that work in a single place. Publishers benefit not only from the increased usage, but also from greater insight into which networks are most commonly used, and which have the most active users.

Future releases will include further workflow integration, enabling shareable PDFs to be created prior to publication, and toll-free links, enabling free readership of content accessed via shareable PDFs.

MIT Press will be the next publisher for whom shareable PDFs will be switched on. The Kudos shareable PDF solution is now available for any publisher who wishes to activate this feature, whether a current Kudos customer or not.
