Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.
Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.
For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:
What is your relationship with research?
Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.
Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
The era of e-science demands new skill sets and competencies of researchers to ensure their work is accessible, discoverable and reusable. Librarians are naturally positioned to assist in this education as part of their liaison and information literacy services.
In this webinar gain a broad understanding of the open research data management ecosystem and initiatives underway. Our presenters will explore data information literacy needs and competencies identified for grad students and researchers, as well as a curriculum developed by the IMLS-funded Data Information Literacy research project. They will discuss how data labs can serve as a physical and social environment – and interdisciplinary platform – for supporting data literacy education. Learn more about how libraries are expanding the scope of information literacy to include open data and related tools, methods and skills. Be informed of projects and models to store, share and cite data, and provide credit for data sharing.
Librarians will discuss metrics-related library services for the individual (grad student, faculty/researcher) to inform career development, publishing decisions, etc., and at the department level for the purpose of analysis and benchmarking. Other highlights include an overview of the world of metrics, the mainstreaming of altmetrics, and a look at the new Scopus Article Metrics module.Read more >

The University of Manchester, a member of the UK's Russell Group, implemented Pure in April 2016 and this presentation discusses implementation from the library’s point of view.
In this presentation Scott Taylor, Research Services Librarian, will describe some of the opportunities and challenges that Pure has presented to the University of Manchester Library’s Research Services Division as they aim to achieve the strategic objective of supporting world class research at the University of Manchester.
As the University’s central store of research related data, Pure now underpins most of the Library’s research services across the key activity channels of Open Research, Impact, Identifiers, and Data Stewardship.
This presentation will describe how Pure:
• provides richer analytics enabling new insights into the University’s publication profile
• enables the team to manage the institutional mandate for all researchers to have and provide an ORCID ID
• allows the library to better track the online attention to outputs through the integration with Pure
Scott will also discuss some of the new working relationships across campus that the library has created following the implementation of Pure as well as some of the challenges, including: learning the underlying data model of a new system; getting to grips with some of its features such as the reporting module; and tracking and reporting Open Access funder requirements to a range of stakeholders with differing requirements.
Many types of institutional and research repositories exist to address different institutional needs, digital collections and research outputs. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss the approaches their institutions have taken, their mandates, software and systems, and staffing. They will also look at the relationships involved: between the library and research office, institutions and publishers, and repository staff and authors.Read more >
Altmetrics are becoming an integral part of looking at the impact and reach of research. Tracking social and online outlets, altmetrics provide quick feedback from a wide range of sources.
