Springer Nature and IBM Watson Health collaborate to create deeper insights from cutting edge scientific and medical research   - 21 Aug 2018

Springer Nature has announced a collaboration with Watson Health to expand and enhance the integration of valuable genomics research content from Springer Nature to Watson's ecosystem. The collaboration will significantly extend Watson's AI and machine learning technology access to content from leading Springer Nature journals, giving researchers and health professionals using Watson even more access to genomics research in varied medical and health science settings.

IBM Watson Health offerings have always integrated research literature from Springer Nature based on its subscription access. As part of this data collaboration, Watson Health will have broader access to peer-reviewed genomics-related journal content from Springer Nature journals, including Nature - the leading international weekly journal of science founded in 1869 - Nature Genetics and Nature Medicine.

The improved access will allow Watson to enhance the extraction of genomics data used to generate reports that provide insights to oncologists in defining treatment pathways. This collaboration framework will also allow Watson Health to use Springer Nature content in more flexible ways for different circumstances.

Digital Science integrates over 1.4 M patents from Russia into Dimensions platform   - 21 Aug 2018

Research technology company Digital Science has integrated over 1.4 million patents from Russia into its Dimensions platform, which provides information on scholarly research activity worldwide.

The only research insights platform to consistently link Russian patent information to publications from universities and research institutes globally, Dimensions aims to transform the way research is discovered, accessed and analysed.

In addition to patents, Dimensions is also the most complete source of funded grant information, with data for projects totalling over $1.3tn funding from more than 250 organisations worldwide, including key funders from G20 and OECD countries and beyond. It enables users to explore the connections across the research lifecycle by linking this extensive funding and patent data with their associated publications, clinical trials and scholarly metrics.

With the new integration of Russian Patent Office data, provided by patent services company IFI CLAIMS, sourcing the records directly from Federal Institute of Industrial Property (FIPS) as well as European Patent Office (EPO), users of Dimensions are able to easily explore all of the patents and further refine search results to specific years, disciplines, and legal status.

Individual publication pages within the platform will also show where publications have been referenced in Russian-issued patents, making it possible to identify the paths leading to the commercialisation of research from around the world.

Questioning the drug firms-scientists nexus

The US Center for Science in the Public Interest has questioned medical journals for not revealing the financial relationship the authors hold with drug companies for the studies that may potentially benefit the companies. . Scientists whose researches are funded by drug companies often publish their reports in prestigious scientific journals. Drug companies who fund the reports claim the results of the study while marketing the product. Publishers of the journals are left clueless about the funding agreement.   Click Here

Study analyses pricing trends of scientific journals

Allen Press had conducted an annual study to identify the pricing patterns of scientific and medical journals. The research covers the 2004 pricing of US journals and gives recommendations on the pricing structure for 2005. It carries comparisons between the pricing structures of non-profit society journals and discusses general pricing trends in the US. The author also ranks the journals based on the subscription charges and science categories with higher prices. The paper also forecasts the pricing strategy of science journals in 2005.   Click Here

Publishers opening up to Open Access archiving

Researchers have voiced their support to Open Access (OA) that makes their works available to anyone free of cost. While commercial publishers have given a subdued response to OA, scientists welcome OA archiving, wherein institutions or academics maintain an electronic format of the studies submitted by the scientists. Amidst disapproval from publishers and scientific groups, OA archiving is gaining acceptance from developed nations. Economic factors, existing subsidised but limited free content supported by publishers and an inclination to traditional publishing are a few reasons that impede support for OA archiving from developing countries.   Click Here

Open access movement gaining ground in STM publishing

The “open access movement”, which is rapidly gaining ground in the area of STM publishing, stresses the free use of online medical research. As commercial publishers set high prices for medical periodicals and libraries struggle to sustain amidst shrinking budgets, a debate has flared up on the need for open access. Clinical and basic researchers point out that as these studies are funded by the government, the publishers must make them available for free. The increasing use of electronic format of journals has induced independent publishers, such as ASCO and JCO, to host e-journals as an extension of their respective membership programmes and educational missions.    Click Here

Do science publishers still have a role?

The open access movement is gaining momentum. Critics have voiced their strong protests against the pricing of STM journals. The spiralling prices were, in fact, the major reason for the launch and rapid spreading of the open access movement. Does this mean the end of SRM publishers? No, says Bill Town in his article in Computing.   Click Here
