Cambridge University Press announces content sharing success
- 21 Sep 2018

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has announced that its content sharing tool, Cambridge Core Share, is now a permanent feature of its online books and journals platform following a successful ten-month pilot.

Launched in December 2017, Cambridge Core Share helps to make research more open and accessible by enabling users to generate a link to a read-only version of a journal article which can be shared online, allowing anyone to read the final version of the article for free.

Cambridge Core Share has also recently been enhanced with new functionality that gives users the option of generating a PDF containing a link to a journal article, making it easier for users to share the links on scholarly collaboration network sites such as ResearchGate and Academia.edu.

Since its launch, over 6,000 Core Share links have been generated by people around the world, leading to almost 160,000 free-to-read views with monthly views growing to over 14,000. Over 250 journals have joined Cambridge Core Share and work is underway to make the service more widely available across the Press's entire journals programme. More content has been added; all compatible digital content from 1997 can now be shared, whereas only articles from 2016 onwards could be shared during the pilot.

The Press's Open Research programme builds on existing activities by increasing investment in open solutions, products, policies, processes and partnerships. The Press's vision in Open Research is to unlock the potential of high quality research and work towards a more impactful, community-led and diverse Open future.

Wolters Kluwer Health releases latest version of its clinical surveillance solution, Sentri7®
- 21 Sep 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has released the latest version of its industry-leading clinical surveillance solution, Sentri7®. The solution gives hospitals tools and resources to stay in front of new and emerging clinical challenges and battle the antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are taking a toll on patient safety and hospital costs. In an April 2018 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 221 instances of unusual resistance of so-called nightmare bacteria that are virtually invulnerable to most known treatments.

Sentri7 is part of a suite of applications that have been integrated into the SoleSource platform, which brings together solutions that address a wide range of clinical surveillance challenges and compliance activities across a hospital or health system. It makes it easier for clinicians to proactively identify patients who may be experiencing a life-threatening condition or quickly find and respond to an infection before it spreads.

Newly released surveillance capabilities include: the integration of clinical initiatives on the SoleSource platform for antimicrobial stewardship, medication management, infection prevention and opioid management. The platform also contains POC Advisor®, a dedicated surveillance module for sepsis and other emergent conditions; out-of-the-box, evidence-based content including alerts and recommended actions for real-time prioritisation of urgent conditions and follow-up for patients at-risk; integrated documentation provides a one-click solution to push clinical notes into the EHR, keeping the full care team on the same page while eliminating double documentation; and robust analytics create an environment for continuous improvement by enabling clinicians and administrators to understand how their interventions are driving measurable improvement in cost and outcomes performance.

Understanding the impact on outcomes has been a gap in clinical surveillance solutions. The SoleSource platform offers new analytics that give hospitals control of intuitive views of their outcomes, supporting reporting within the department, at the facility level and across a health system.

Everson and the pharmacy team provide guidance to the hospitals' quality staff on which key performance metrics should be tracked and reported year-over-year.

HighWire introduces BenchPress Unlimited
- 20 Sep 2018

HighWire, the technology partner of choice for leading commercial and scholarly publishers, has introduced BenchPress Unlimited, a new, simplified and intuitive version for publishers with low volume and straight-forward manuscript submission processes.

One of the key commercial challenges for smaller publishers is the ability to forecast expenditures, BenchPress Unlimited offers an alternative pricing model that removes submission-based pricing. Instead, publishers now have the option to pay a single flat rate regardless of the number of submissions received; removing barriers to growth and leaving publishers free to scale their program. BenchPress Unlimited provides priority features without overwhelming authors, editors, and reviewers with more functionality than they need.

HighWire's well-established submissions management tool is depended upon by some of the world's pre-eminent scholarly publishers. It has become a highly valued part of their publishing systems architecture, enabling authors, reviewers, editorial and production staffs, and external service providers, to submit, review content, update manuscript records and track workflow efficiency, through one central application.

In addition to the new pricing, as a SaaS based offering, BenchPress Unlimited is fast to implement, so publishers quickly feel the benefit of the new capability. HighWire customers are also uniquely offered the addition of direct-to-developer support, enabling customers to speak directly to the engineer who makes the change.

SAGE Publishing announces sponsorship of Public Editor
- 18 Sep 2018

Academic Publisher SAGE Publishing has announced a $50,000 sponsorship of Public Editor, a high-scale content analysis tool that involves digital volunteers in multi-layered, simultaneous assessments of news articles. A nonpartisan project, the tool uses transparent, neutral criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of news articles resulting in credibility scores for the news.

Members of the public wanting to help in the editing process receive training and then the Public Editor web interface guides them to read passages from news articles and respond to a few prompts that help them identify mistakes made by journalists and those they quote. Volunteers' assessments turn into credibility scores for articles, journalists, news publishers, and public figures quoted in the news. Identified mistakes are also labeled so that news readers understand the quality of the news through a colourful overlay of the text. Content platforms can use Public Editor's credibility scores to promote high quality journalism while reducing the quantity of sloppy content appearing in news feeds.

Public Editor helps to expose the following in news articles: psychological and cognitive biases; inappropriate representation of sources; mistaken inferences about data or causality; logical and argumentative fallacies; and issues of tone or slanted writing.

Through the creation of videos, updated websites, a robust social media campaign, and other communication tools, SAGE's $50,000 support will be used to inspire a large community of volunteers to have a positive impact ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Public Editor is a project from Goodly Labs, which develops and shares tools to help individuals cooperate more effectively, make better group decisions, improve lives, and promote the common well-being. It uses Thusly's TagWorks, a web-based content analysis software for researchers.

Wiley and Clarivate Analytics partner to launch new open peer review workflow
- 14 Sep 2018

John Wiley and Sons Inc., a global leader in education and scholarly research; Publons, a peer review platform; and ScholarOne, a manuscript submission system, have announced the launch of the scholarly industry's first scalable open peer review workflow. Academic journals have faced a number of practical difficulties to adopt such models, hindered by complex and established workflows. Through this partnership, Wiley, ScholarOne, and Publons - both part of Clarivate Analytics - have developed a robust and seamless solution to these challenges.

Beginning with Wiley's prestigious journal Clinical Genetics, this is the first open peer review initiative to develop a scalable model applicable to diverse publishing processes. The comprehensive workflow provides alignment to best-practice data privacy regulation, ensuring the individual preferences of authors, peer reviewers and journals are met.

The new workflow enables transparent publication of an article's complete peer review process - from initial review and response through to revision and final publication decision. Alongside the published article, readers can now review a comprehensive peer review history. Each element of the peer review process has also been assigned its own digital object identifier (DOI), enabling future authors to easily reference and cite relevant peer review content.

This initiative will roll out to other journals, publishers and submission systems in the future, in line with Publons' publisher-neutral stance.
