DeepDyve unveils researcher workflow tools for scientific and scholarly research
- 16 May 2018

DeepDyve has unveiled a new suite of researcher workflow tools designed to streamline the scholarly literature search and curation process. These tools are freely available as part of the DeepDyve Freelancer plan, and also included in DeepDyve Pro, the subscription-based online rental service for scientific and scholarly research.

While DeepDyve Pro is designed for researchers in small to mid-sized organisations who do not have institutional access to peer-reviewed content, DeepDyve Freelancer is suitable for any researcher who routinely uses PubMed and Google Scholar. With this launch, these powerful new tools are immediately available to DeepDyve's 1.5 million registered users.

Based on surveys and interviews, DeepDyve found that nearly all of its users followed a similar process in how they conducted the initial phases of their research - run searches, save results, read and filter articles, repeat. However, these same researchers were frustrated by the lack of tools to organise this critical and time-consuming process, often relying on a patchwork of applications from MS Word to Notepad to simply keeping open dozens of browser tabs. With its latest offering, DeepDyve delivers a service to centrally initiate and manage the literature search and curation process.

DeepDyve also released the latest version of its proprietary browser plugin that integrates Google Scholar and PubMed activity with a user's DeepDyve account. Searches conducted at those sites are automatically saved in My Library, and users can add any Google Scholar or PubMed article result to a DeepDyve List for future reference.

University quality healthcheck delivered through collaboration between three sector agencies
- 25 Apr 2018

Cooperation between three higher education organisations has helped to create a tool allowing universities to perform an in-house quality healthcheck. Since 2016, the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), Jisc, and the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) have explored increased collaboration and cost sharing for the benefit of the HE sector through the M5 Group.

The QAA-led Provider Healthcheck was developed following a 13-week, Jisc-supported Analytics Lab and has been released to the sector as one of 14 community dashboards available via HESA's Heidi Plus HE intelligence platform.

According to Paul Clark, chief executive of HESA, this community dashboard is the latest outcome from the M5 Group's members to deliver services for the HE sector which help improve quality, create efficiencies and reduce costs.

The Provider Healthcheck will provide a valuable resource for HE quality teams across the UK at a time when metrics are increasingly important to their work.

Other positive examples of M5 collaboration include the Data Matters Conference in November 2017 and OneDesk the M5 group's shared IT service desk, which launched in March, combining resources and systems to deliver efficient support to staff and external users.

Provation launches Order Set AdvisorTM, enabling real-time order set optimisation
- 23 Apr 2018

Provation has announced the launch of Order Set AdvisorTM, a content gap analysis feature within its Provation® Order Sets solution. Intelligent and actionable, Order Set Advisor drives more effective clinical decisions and consistent patient outcomes by leveraging Provation's evidence-based rule sets to optimise the order set update process.

Order Set Advisor fills an important need in hospitals by addressing the complex organisational challenge of maintaining evidence-based order sets. A survey of U.S. healthcare executives conducted by Modern Healthcare on behalf of Provation found that updating evidence is a laborious and time-consuming process that takes, on average, more than two months to complete. It's a process that few executives (7%) describe as 'very efficient,' which indicates substantial opportunity for improvement.

Order Set Advisor represents a powerful combination of innovative technologies and expertise from Provation. It identifies gaps within existing order sets, promoting alignment with the latest evidence-based clinical content by leveraging an intelligent mapping tool. Order Set Advisor then presents actionable recommendations for web-based review, collaboration and approval.

Provation is the premier software provider of intelligent procedure documentation and coding solutions improving clinical productivity and reimbursement (Provation® MD), equipping physicians and administrators with evidence-based clinical decision support solutions to optimise order sets and care plans (Provation® Order Sets) and providing evidence-based content for structured clinical documentation and coding embedded within the EHR (Provation® Clinic Note). Provation is trusted by leading physicians globally, serving approximately 1,500 hospitals and 1,000 Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs), including 16 of the top 20 U.S. hospitals for gastroenterology (GI) and GI surgery. Provation is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN and is owned by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P.

Taylor&Francis introduces new copyediting technology to improve publication speeds
- 11 Apr 2018

Academic publisher Taylor&Francis has implemented new copyediting technology to support faster publication speed across its portfolio of 2500 academic journals.

'Contextualized Copyediting' uses artificial intelligence and natural language processing to assess and score the language quality of articles accepted into Taylor&Francis journals, so that they can be routed to an appropriate level of copyediting. The goal is to eliminate unnecessary production time on articles that don't need editing.

Research carried out by Taylor&Francis's author services partner Editage has shown that the biggest improvement journal publishers can make to the author experience is to reduce the time it takes for articles to get published.

Taylor&Francis journals have renewed partnerships with three vendors to support its Contextualized Copyediting program: Integra Software Services, Cenveo Publisher Services, and NovaTechset. The suppliers were selected based on the innovation they demonstrated in applying language analysis technology at appropriate points in the prepress workflow.
