Elsevier partners with tissue viability society
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.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
