.SciVal Experts is now part of Pure

 : an application that scans through Scopus to isolate faculty researcher profile summary data, including research topics and publications

SciVal includes author information such as H index, co-authors, cited papers, journals, grants, and affiliation
Also at the author level, provides trends, similar experts, research network, institutional network, and coauthor network
At department level, provides publications, journals, grants, trends, and institutional and research networks

“In an effort to synergize inter-disciplinary clinical and translational research, UC Davis is committed to using innovative research tools and information technologies to promote collaboration regardless of organizational affiliation or position within the bench-to-bedside-to-population spectrum of science. This expertise portal is a key component of UC Davis mission to catalyze the application of new knowledge and techniques to clinical practice at the front lines of patient care.”

New NIH biosketch format May 25, 2015

May 12th, 2015 by Mary Wood

Notice Number: NOT-OD-15-032

Tool to Help Build the New Biosketchsciencv_2

SciENcv serves as an interagency system designed to create biosketches for multiple federal agencies, and supports the new biosketch format.

SciENcv pulls information from available resources making it easy to develop a repository of information that can be readily updated and modified to prepare future biosketches. A YouTube video provides instructions for using SciENcv.

Start Using SciENcv to Create and Maintain Your Biosketch Profiles

 

Three changes to the biosketch:

The allowed length has been increased from four to five pages.

Up to five of the applicant’s most significant contributions to science are to be included in section C. Description can include the impact of each, its context and the role of the applicant. The importance of each contribution can be underscored by up to four peer-reviewed publications, videos, patents, databases or other products.

A URL to the applicant’s publicly available bibliography may be provided.

The primary difference is section C. In SciENcv, you can add contributions and select citations to support them from your Bibliography. It also allows you to include a link to your complete Bibliography

Every researcher with a MyNCBI account has access to the MyBibliography and SciENcv tools. If you maintain MyBibliography as you publish and edit the settings to make it “Public,” you will be provided with a URL that you can share on your biosketch.

SciENcv is connected to MyBibliography, and you can directly import the citations you want into section C. To create the new biosketch in SciENcv, click on “Create New Profile.” You will be given three options—to create a profile from scratch, from an external source or from another profile. To minimize the amount of changes you need to make, if you have used SciENcv before, select “from another profile.” If you have an eRA commons account, you can use it as the external source. Both options auto-populate sections of your biosketch. In all cases the type of document that you should create is “New NIH Biosketch.”

Access to Global Unique Device Identification Database

May 6th, 2015 by Mary Wood

NLM and FDA Launch Public Access to Global Unique Device Identification Databaseindex

The FDA and the National Library of Medicine announced that data submitted to FDA’s

Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID)

is now publicly available through a website called AccessGUDID

Search / download information that device labelers have submitted to the GUDID about their medical devices.

Because the UDI system is being phased in over the next several years, labelers are currently submitting data on only the highest risk medical devices, a small subset of marketed devices. But as the system is implemented according to the UDI compliance timeline, the records of all medical devices required to have a UDI will be included.

This is a beta version of AccessGUDID; after exploring its contents and assessing its functionality, please provide feedback in order to shape future enhancements, including advanced search and web services.  Submit feedback through the Contact Us link at the bottom of the AccessGUDID landing page or the FDA UDI Help Desk.
