ECS Partners with Research4Life to Help Close the Knowledge Gap in the Developing World

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is partnering with Research4Life to provide accessibility to over 132,000 articles and abstracts published in the ECS Digital Library. All papers published by ECS will be free to access for more than 8,200 institution in an effort to reduce the scientific knowledge gap between high-income and low- and middle-income countries by providing free or affordable access to critical scientific research.

Leonard P. Freedman, PhD, president of Global Biological Standards Institute (GBSI) will lead a panel discussion convened by GBSI, titled “Rigor and Reproducibility One Year Later: How Has the Biomedical Community Responded?” Freedman will also introduce a new GBSI report on the life science community’s multiple years of progress toward improved reproducibility by 2020. “Reproducibility2020 Report: Progress and Priorities,” also tracks the GBSI Reproducibility2020 challenge issued February 2016.

GBSI Report Shows Encouraging Progress Towards Addressing Reproducibility to Significantly Improve Quality of Preclinical Biological Research by Year 2020

One year after the Global Biological Standards Institute (GBSI) issued its Reproducibility2020 challenge and action plan for the biomedical research community, the organization reports encouraging progress toward the goal to significantly improve the quality of preclinical biological research by year 2020. “Reproducibility2020 Report: Progress and Priorities,” posted today on bioRxiv, identifies action and impact that has been achieved by the life science research community and outlines priorities going forward. The report is the first comprehensive review of the steps being taken to improve reproducibility since the issue became more widely known in 2012.

Antidote for Partisanship? In Science, Curiosity Seems to Work

Disputes over science-related policy issues such as climate change or fracking often seem as intractable as other politically charged debates. But in science, at least, simple curiosity might help bridge that partisan divide, according to new research.

New Book Examines Legal, Ethical and Policy Implications of Electronic Health Records and Medical “Big Data”

SharonaHoffman_1.jpg

Recent years have marked a dramatic transition from paper to electronic medical records. Simultaneously, Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems allow for the creation of medical “big data”—massive collections of electronic data that can be used for medical research, public health initiatives and other health-related endeavors. To educate medical, legal, information technology and policy professionals and students about EHR systems, medical big data and the regulations that govern them, Sharona Hoffman, a professor of law and bioethics at Case Western Reserve University, wrote a new book, Electronic Health Records and Medical Big Data: Law and Policy (Cambridge University Press).

Collaboration Between Media and Medical Journals Often Leads to Misinformation and Hysteria

When flawed clinical research is reported in the media with hype and sensationalism, it has the potential to have a devastating effect on patients, physicians, the scientific community and eventually society as a whole.

Evaluation of Scientific Rigor in Animal Research

The “reproducibility crisis” in biomedical research has led to questions about the scientific rigor in animal research, and thus the ethical justification of animal experiments. In research publishing in the Open Access journals PLOS Biology and PLOS ONE on December 2nd, 2016, researchers from the University of Bern have assessed scientific rigor in animal experimentation in Switzerland. The study, commissioned by the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO), found widespread deficiencies in the reporting of experimental methodology.

College Students Use Non-Traditional Avenues to Augment Research Funding

Students are using non-traditional funding sources to augment their research projects. The following NMSU students are using outside sources: Grace Smith Vidaurre is using Experiment.com; Brian Ramos-Guivas used Instrumentl in the past and is now using GoFundMe; Sativa Cruz, a recent graduate, used GoFundMe.
