  • Advancing responsible research assessment: implications for librarians Recorded: May 6 2021 57 mins
    Cindy Minor
    Research assessment should not be centered solely on bibliometrics such as publication and citation metrics but should encompass other measures that address the broad range of assessment-related questions. These cover research inputs, outputs and outcomes, such as funding, collaboration, usage, commercialization and the adoption of innovation. As more diverse data sources and metrics are used, a richer and more informative picture of research emerges.

    The International Center for the Study of Research (ICSR) was established by Elsevier in 2019 with a mission to further the study of research and thus to contribute to the evidence base supporting the practice of research strategy, evaluation and policy. In 2020, ICSR and Elsevier signed the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and endorsed the Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics, two internationally-recognized statements of best practice in responsible research assessment.

    In this Library Connect webinar, Christopher Belter will discuss what responsible research assessment might look like in practice for a large biomedical funding agency. ICSR staff members Andrew Plume and Holly Falk-Krzesinski will then discuss the recommendations of both DORA and the Leiden Manifesto and their implications for Elsevier as well as for librarians and their users.

  • Emerging technologies and clinical research in Latin America Recorded: Nov 18 2020 120 mins
    David Collingridge,Carlos Barrios,Eduado Cazap,Gustavo Werutsky,Georgina Sposetti,Rodrigo Dienstmann & Stephen Stephani
    Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide, and an increasing threat in low-income and middle-income countries. In 2013 and 2015, The Lancet Oncology published two Commissions that highlighted the cancer landscape in Latin America and how it differed from more developed countries. The reports showed that funding for health care was just a small percentage of national gross domestic product and the percentage of health-care funds diverted to cancer care was even lower. Funding, insurance coverage, numbers of doctors, health-care workers, resources, and equipment were inequitably distributed between and within Latin American countries. The Commissions emphasised the need for structural reforms in health-care systems, the need for dedicated cancer control programmes for disenfranchised populations, the importance of expanding coverage of cancer registries and cancer plans, and the effect of implementing policies to improve primary cancer prevention. In this webinar, renowned experts from Brazil, Argentina, and Spain, revisit cancer control in Latin America via a more contemporaneous lens, with a focus on the challenges surrounding academic research funding, clinical trial recruitment, big data, and wider access to the latest diagnostic technologies.
  • Sustainable care for children with cancer: a Lancet Oncology Commission Recorded: Nov 18 2020 116 mins
    Ali Landman, Carlos Rodriguez-Galindo, Kathy Pritchard-Jones, Rifat Atun
    Cancer kills more than 100,000 children each year, and yet 80% of pediatric cancers are curable with currently available interventions. Notably, the majority of these deaths occur in low‐income and middle-income countries. Yet no reliable data are available in low-income and middle-income countries on the burden of childhood cancer; on the cost of effective interventions; on current health coverage levels; or on the cost, feasibility, or health and economic benefits of scaling-up effective coverage.

    In March, 2020, The Lancet Oncology published a Commission on Sustainable care for children with cancer, which provided a new analysis of the global childhood cancer burden and developed an economic investment case and evidence-based medical framework for implementing, integrating, and scaling up care pathways for childhood cancer.

    Join Dr. Ali Landman, Deputy Editor of The Lancet Oncology, and Commission authors, as they discuss the aims, findings, and recommendations from the Commission.
