Elsevier partners with tissue viability society

29.08.2007
Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services is pleased to announce the formation of a publishing partnership with the Tissue Viability Society, an organization representing more than 1000 wound care specialists in the UK.

Under the agreement, Elsevier will assume publication of Journal of Tissue Viability, official journal of the Tissue Viability Society (http://www.tvs.org.uk/) from January 2008.

Journal of Tissue Viability is concerned with all aspects of the occurrence and treatment of wounds, ulcers and pressure sores including patient care, pain, nutrition, wound healing, research, prevention, mobility, social problems and management. The journal’s audience includes various professions involved in tissue viability; primarily nurses but with many doctors, engineers, scientists, pharmacists, podiatrists and other professions also represented.

Dr Mike Clark, Editor, said “The Tissue Viability Society is excited by the agreement with Elsevier to publish the Journal of Tissue Viability. This will enable the Journal of Tissue Viability to reach a wider audience of wound healing professionals world-wide so strengthening the reputation of the Journal. The journal content will be printed at a faster pace and will also be accessible electronically together with other Elsevier journals. In addition, the submission and the reviewing of all manuscripts will be web-based, supported by Elsevier. This new procedure, which will be implemented shortly, will drastically reduce the reviewing process time and will be more cost-effective for the Journal."

Members of the Tissue Viability will continue to receive the print edition of Journal of Tissue Viability as a benefit of membership. In addition, members will be able to access the entire contents of each issue online. Other online features will include a comprehensive search engine, allowing users to search JTV alone, or to include hundreds of other Elsevier journals in a single query; options to sign up for e-mail alerts; and more. The Journal will be accessible through Elsevier's online database, ScienceDirect, the world's largest electronic collection of science, technology and medicine full text and bibliographic information.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
