The 2015 edition of Journal Citation Reports (JCR) – citation data for 2014 for literature within the sciences and social sciences - includes the integration of a new metric, the Journal Impact Factor Percentile; a Normalized Eigenfactor®; detailed analysis of underlying journal level data; an Open Access (OA) Filter; and a variety of user updates that allow for increased transparency and easier access to a greater amount of data.
This 40th annual edition features 11,149 journal listings in 237 disciplines; 82 countries are represented. A total of 272 journals received their first JIF; 53 percent of journals saw an increase in JIF from last year and 43 percent saw a decrease. Additionally, 39 journals were suppressed to ensure the integrity of the reports. Suppressed journals are re-evaluated after a year for reconsideration in the JCR.
Just like smartphones, the Emergency Medical System (EMS) has not always been an indispensable part of the health care system.
The Emergency Medical System was first developed in the early 1970s, and since has grown into an amazingly precise and synchronized service that gives any injured victim a much better chance for survival.
The origins of the EMS network are detailed in the May 21st issue of Circulating Now from the National Library of Medicine, and EMS week was celebrated from May 17th through 23rd to honor the dedication of those who provide emergency treatment on a daily basis. EMS Strong is a 365 day initiative to increase visibility and further embed these critical lifesaving skills into the healthcare continuum. Enjoy!
