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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
