  25. 2006 and 2007 Articles Which are Indexed in the Web of Science to Mirror the 2008 Impact Factor 25

  26. Eigenfactor™ Score Essentially a Web Page Ranking Algorithm • “The Eigenfactor™ score of a journal is an estimate of the percentage of time that library users spend with that journal. • The Eigenfactor™ algorithm corresponds to a simple model of research in which readers follow chains of citations as they move from journal to journal.”* *http://www.eigenfactor.org/methods.htm

  27. Black arrows point to different journal categories (select examples) This static visualization gives an overview of the citation network for JRRD in 2005. A different journal group: “The IEEE Control Systems Magazine is the largest circulation technical periodical world-wide devoted to all aspects of control systems.” Line opacity represents connection strength scaled by Eigenfactor™ Score. Magenta coloring refers to medically oriented journals. Green arrows point to individual journals (select examples) Medicine Citation Pattern

  28. JRRD Green Initiative • Green Initiative – Paper Stock, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council ), Working with GSA • Recycling / Reuse – GSA and JRRD In-House Program • Utilization of Older Stock – New Employee Education Initiative, Pilot Program at Perry Point • Reduction in Mailing – NCOA (National Change of Address Database) • Control of Hard Copy Inventory, Increased Emphasis on Web and Mini-CD Distribution Modes • Change of Font for In-House Work – Ecofont 28

  29. Gray Graphic – Our GPO Printer • Gray Graphic Corp., is an FSC Certified printer. This means that all the paper they use in their facility is sourced from a sustainably managed forest and is FSC certified. In addition, their facility is powered by 50% wind energy as certified by Clean Currents: Green Energy Solutions. They are also EPA Green Power Partners. • In addition, the paper requirements include a minimum of 10% Post-Consumer Waste (PCW) content. • http://www.fsc.org/about-fsc.html JRRD will now feature: JRRD is printed on paper containing recycled postconsumer waste paper that is fiber sourced from sustainable managed forests and printed with the use of renewable energy. 29

  33. Why Twitter? Uses of Twitter (Tweets, individual 140 character messages): • To drive interested stakeholders to JRRD web content • As a tool to connect rehabilitation experts inside and outside the VA with JRRD content (global stakeholders) • As a tool for Veterans to access the latest content • As a resource for ideas of interest for future JRRD single topic issues • To increase awareness of JRRD content and branding within the rehabilitation field, including, but not limited to, the Cochrane Collaboration and Cochrane Reviews (http://www.cochrane.org/) • To send out news, press releases, and eAlerts of relevant JRRD content • To follow expert commentary on JRRD content; stimulate editorial responses to content • To provide a mechanism for knowledge dissemination and forward linking from other rehabilitation web sites back to JRRD content 33

  35. Podcasting • “A podcast is a series of digitalcomputer files, usually either digital audio or video, that is released periodically and made available for download by means of web syndication.”* • JRRD plans on initially podcasting JRRD at a Glance. *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast 35

  36. VA Has Gone Mobile - m.va.govSo will JRRD – Mid-2010 • “Point your web-enabled mobile device to m.va.gov to read and share featured VA news stories, watch videos, and find a VA facility on the go!” • “The VA’s mobile Web site uses existing content from www.va.gov and tailors it for display on the small form factor of a mobile device in a finger-friendly layout.” • Gearing up for XML version of JRRD content for Mobile Content. 36

  37. Stakeholders Already Accessing JRRD Web Content via Mobile Devices 37

  38. Why Facebook? New England Journal of Medicine Now on Facebook • “Some of the oldest scholarly journals are setting up pages on social-networking sites like Facebook. The latest is The New England Journal of Medicine,The Boston Globe reports. • The journal, which was founded in Boston in 1812, has created a Facebook site where readers can link to articles and a weekly podcast summary. “If our users are going to be there, we should be there,” says Kent Anderson, the journal’s executive director of international business and product development. • The move is the journal’s latest attempt to find new ways to connect with readers. The medical journal has offered an online edition for 13 years. • Other long-established journals that have set up Facebook sites include Science and The Journal of the American Medical Association. —Katherine Mangan” • Posted on Friday May 15, 2009 38

  41. DEVELOPMENT AND BACKGROUND • CSE (Council of Scientific Editors) • AAP (Association of American Publishers) • International Congress on Peer Review and Biomedical Publication • PSP (Professional and Scholarly Publishers) • ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors) • COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) 41


  43. “Editors are the gatekeepers of science, not the police, although........”Arthur Hilliker, Editor of Genome Conflict and misbehavior among Editors, Authors, Reviewers, and others is becoming more common. 43

  44. Conflict of Interest (COI) • Most major journals have a COI policy. Although many journals have problems enforcing these policies, having NO written policy can be risky. • JAMA, one leader on COI, had recently had issues with financial disclosure and reworked their COI policy to discourage third-party disclosure while an allegation is under investigation. • JRRD relied on referencing ICMJE, which is not sufficient. 44

  45. Plagiarism • Bernard Rous, Deputy Director, Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) seeing plagiarism every 2 months and increasing • Example: Skip Garner (Nature: Errami M, Garner H. A tale of two citations. Nature 2008 Jan 24;451(7177):397-9.) One eTBlast study (a text similarity engine): 9,000 Medline duplicate articles Selected 200 for analysis, questionnaires sent to original authors and subsequent authors Led to 83 journal investigations and 46 retractions (many journal Editors refused to pursue the issue) Amazingly though, of the 60 authors who replied to the questionnaires: “28% denied any wrongdoing; 35% admitted to having borrowed previously published material; and 22% were from co-authors claiming no involvement in the writing of the manuscript. An additional 17% said they were unaware their names appeared on the article in question.” 45

  46. Co-Submission • For more than 10 years, co-submission has been prohibited according to VHA Handbook 1203.05 (JRRD). • A Statement of Originality Form is required for submission. • Within the last year, at least 4 submissions had been determined to be co-submitted to JRRD and another journal simultaneously. Several times, authors even “inadvertently” addressed their letters’ to the Editor to Dr. Basford (Arch. PM&R) or to Dr. Grimby (J. Rehab. Med.). 46
