US Elsevier publishes six new comprehensive geoscience titles - 28 Mar 2017

STM Publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Data Assimilation for the Geosciences: From Theory to Application by Steven J. Fletcher. The book brings together in one place all mathematical, statistical and probability background knowledge necessary to formulate data assimilation systems. It also demonstrates how data assimilation systems are implemented in larger scale fluid dynamical problems related to the atmosphere, oceans, the land surface and other geophysical situations. Elsevier also announced the publication of five additional geoscience books.

Data Assimilation for the Geosciences offers a comprehensive presentation of the subject, from basic principles to advanced methods, such as particle filters and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods. In addition, it covers the applications of data assimilation techniques in various disciplines of the geosciences, making the book useful to students, teachers and research scientists.

The six new geoscience titles are: Data Assimilation for the Geosciences: From Theory to Application by Steven J. Fletcher; Geomorphology and Volcanology of Costa Rica by Jean Pierre Bergoeing; Theory of Electromagnetic Well Logging by C. Richard Liu; Understanding the Bouguer Anomaly: A Gravimetry Puzzle by Roman Pasteka, Jan Mikuska and Bruno Meurers; Nickel Sulfide Ores and Impact Melts: Origin of the Sudbury Igneous Complex by Peter Lightfoot; and Investigating Seafloors and Oceans: From Mud Volcanoes to Giant Squid by Antony Joseph.

In order to meet content needs in the geosciences, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. The new books, which will educate the next generation of geoscientists, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

German The CCDC and FIZ Karlsruhe partner to provide single point access to all small molecule crystal data - 28 Mar 2017

The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (The CCDC) and FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure (FIZ Karlsruhe) have announced the start of a joint development project that will deliver for the first time shared deposition and access services for crystallographic data across all domains of chemistry, including organic, inorganic and metal-organic structures. The resulting capability - to search over one million crystallographic structures and to deposit data for the CCDC's Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and FIZ Karlsruhe's Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) and their underlying CIF depots at a single source - will benefit researchers and educators across the chemistry disciplines.

Two of the chemistry domain's longest-established and most trusted data organisations are combining to deliver standardised and comprehensive access to every structure ever published, with all entries discoverable through links in publications and third party information sources. The development will be of particular interest to scientists whose research spans the boundaries between organic, inorganic and metal-organic chemistry, who will no longer need to be concerned about which database to address, clearing confusion about where the database borders lie.

The CCDC and FIZ Karlsruhe have operated under an informal agreement for the decades in which they have been in existence. The CSD is the world's repository of organic and metal-organic crystallographic data, containing all published structures in over 875,000 entries. The ICSD performs the same function for the inorganic chemistry community, featuring more than 185,000 structures. Each non-profit organisation respects the domain expertise of the other, and there is minimal overlap in the content of their databases. Recent advances in several areas of chemistry, such as research to design new batteries, gas storage systems, zeolites, catalysts, magnets, and fuel additives, have highlighted the challenges of researchers operating across these domains, who have had to operate across two independent data sources. The CCDC and FIZ Karlsruhe have now initiated a development project which will allow chemists to explore structures of interest simultaneously across both data sources, and for all crystallographers to deposit their data through a single, shared portal.

All of the existing expert data curation and publishing processes will remain in place, ensuring that users will still have access to the high quality data and advanced analysis capabilities on which they can depend. The new joint deposition and access portals will be built in Cambridge and based on the CCDC's recently-developed infrastructure for data deposition, processing, searching and sharing, all extended to meet the needs of the inorganic chemistry community.

Planning and development work on the collaboration has already begun. The first outputs will be released through the course of 2017 and will be accessible via www.ccdc.cam.ac.uk and www.fiz-karlsruhe.de. The CSD and ICSD will continue to develop and to be available independently from the CCDC and FIZ Karlsruhe, respectively.

UK CABI launches new Horticulture Compendium - 28 Mar 2017

Scientific publisher CABI has launched its Horticulture Compendium, a new, unique encyclopaedic resource of authoritative horticultural datasheets providing global coverage of temperate, tropical and subtropical food crops. It joins CABI's critically-acclaimed compendia series, making a real difference to the working lives of people across the globe by bringing together a vast selection of information into one place.

At present, an estimated 795 million people go hungry with many more suffering from malnutrition. The science of horticulture has an important role to play in the sustainable production and supply of crops to combat malnutrition and improve health and wellbeing.

The Horticulture Compendium contains over 200 detailed datasheets on globally significant crops and crops of emerging importance in 500 national and provincial locations. It also contains 29 detailed peer-reviewed Key Topic chapter-like datasheets advising on best practices related to harvesting, post-harvest storage, food safety, seed production and handling, and other topics of horticultural interest. New content will be continually developed.

The resource will be of use to students, teachers, lecturers, practitioners (grower operations managers, agro dealers, extension workers) and key decision makers, as a reference guide to aid crop production and to aid adaptation to agricultural threats such as climate change.

The Horticulture Compendium sits alongside CABI's Horticultural Science internet resource, launched in 2016, which provides a complimentary repository of abstracts, full-text articles, news and reviews for scientists, researchers, students and all those who need to keep up-to-date with current research and trends in horticultural science.

US AAOS releases new Orthopaedic Knowledge Update (OKU 12) - 28 Mar 2017

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has released the twelfth edition of OKU (Orthopaedic Knowledge Update), the authoritative and indispensable guide on general and specialty orthopaedics that also is a key tool in preparing for Board certification and recertification.

First published in 1984, the completely new OKU 12 (not a revision of OKU 11) is available in print, eBook or flash drive formats. The new edition features the most up-to-date research and clinical information from the past three years.

The book is organised in six sections, and covers all the general content areas within orthopaedics. The format is designed to conveniently provide answers and clinical information to practicing orthopaedists, and to serve as an efficient source for first-time certification or Maintenance of Certification (MOC) preparation. The MOC guidelines, developed by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, requires 120 credits of Continuing Medical Education (CME) every three years, including 20 credits from a Scored and Recorded Self-Assessment Examination (SAE) activity. The OKU, paired with the Scored and Recorded OKU 12 SAE, qualifies for up to 70 AMA PRA Category 1 CME CreditsTM. Twenty of those credits can be applied to the Scored and Recorded SAE requirement for MOC.

Customers can choose from the hard copy book, eBook, or the book and eBook package, and all can be purchased with the online SAE. Also available for purchase are the eight individual specialty volumes (with no overlap with the general OKU 12), as well as OKU 1-12 (available in an eBook edition or on a USB drive) providing all of the OKU content from the editions 1 through 12.
