New Minimum Standards of Reporting Checklist for manuscripts

Posted on: |

Find it here: http://www.gigasciencejournal.com/authors/instructions/minimum_standards_reporting

BioMed Central has launched a pilot checklist to improve the reproducibility of studies published in its journals: a new Minimum Standards of Reporting Checklist for manuscripts submitted to a group of select journals: BMC Biology, BMC Neuroscience, Genome Biology and GigaScience.

The checklist addresses three areas of reporting: experimental design and statistics, resources, and availability of data and materials.

In a launch editorial for the new checklist BioMed Central staff and the Editors of GigaScience and Genome Biology said: “Our ability to rely on published data for potential therapeutics is critical, and recently its reliability has been called into question… Funding and time are both increasingly limited, and the waste generated from follow-up work based on irreproducible research is high.

“Journals clearly have an important part to play in helping to ensure that experimental design and analysis are appropriate, and that reporting standards are met. The new checklist for authors and referees aims to do just that.”

The checklist has been produced according to NIH guidelines2 for reporting preclinical research.

Authors will be asked on submission to confirm that they have included the information asked for in the checklist or give reasons for any instances where it is not made available or not applicable. Likewise, reviewers will be asked to confirm the information has been satisfactorily reported and reviewed.

BioMed Central plans to review the data that has been collected around the trial, with the aim of rolling out the checklist (with any revisions) across all BioMed Central journals.

New Digital Collection

Posted on: |

The Robert L Brown History of Medicine Collection is very pleased to announce the completion of a new digital collection “The Work of a Country Doctor: Digitized Notebooks, Photographs, and Ephemera of Doctor Homer T. Jackson, M.D.”

Please take a moment to enjoy this fantastic new electronic resource.

http://digital.lib.buffalo.edu/collection/LIB-HSL003/

In 2013, the Collection acquired the collection of Dr. Homer T. Jackson (1846-1926), an upstate New York physician and UB Medical School alumnus (1881) who practiced medicine in the rural village of Verona, NY during the late 19th and early 20th century. The collection includes medical instruments and equipment, personal items, handwritten notebooks, photographs and postcards. Thanks to a grant from the Middle Atlantic Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), Dr. Jackson’s medical treatments and procedures, pharmacologic formularies, UB medical school class notes, and his notes and reactions to professional literature have been digitized and added to the University Libraries’ Digital Collections.

Additionally, if you’d like to see more of the Dr. Jackson collection in person, please visit us here in the lower level of the Health Sciences Library in Abbott Hall. Visitors are always welcome!
