Implementation Science

Implementation Science
http://www.implementationscience.com/

Implementation Science is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that aims to publish research relevant to the scientific study of methods to promote the uptake of research findings into routine healthcare in both clinical and policy contexts. Biomedical research constantly produces new findings – but often these are not routinely translated into health care practice. Implementation research is the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of clinical research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice, and hence to improve the quality and effectiveness of health care. It includes the study of influences on healthcare professional and organisational behaviour. This lack of routine uptake is strategically important for the development of healthcare as it clearly places an invisible ceiling on the potential for biomedical research to enhance health outcomes. Further, it is scientifically important because it identifies the behaviour of healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations as key sources of variance requiring improved empirical and theoretical understanding before effective intervention can be reliably achieved. Implementation Science considers the following types of articles:

* Research: reports of data from original research.
* Debate articles: present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research. Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.
* Meeting report: a short description of a conference that the author has attended. It is usually best for the article to be published as soon after the meeting as possible, and should focus on the key developments presented and discussed at the meeting. These articles are usually commissioned but reports and suggestions may also be submitted for the editors’ consideration.
* Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.
* Short reports: brief reports of data from original research.
* Study protocols: describe proposed or ongoing research, providing a detailed account of the hypothesis, rationale, and methodology of the study.
* Systematic reviews: Title the article in the style “The effectiveness of audit and feedback: a systematic review”. State background to the area, what is already known and why a systematic review is needed. Then describe the search strategy, the databases searched, inclusion and exclusion criteria, the data extraction methods and the proposed methods of data aggregation and analysis. Present the results and discuss their interpretation and implications.

http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/jhome/6276

Wind power is set to become one of the major energy resources of the future. Wind Energy offers a major forum for the reporting of advances in this rapidly developing technology with the goal of realising the world-wide potential to harness clean energy from the wind. The journal will aim to reach all those with an interest in this field from academic research, industrial development through to practical applications of wind turbines. Contributions across the spectrum of scientific and engineering disciplines concerned with the advancement of wind power conversion technology are an essential feature of the journal. Considerable emphasis will be placed on technical applications papers which describe progress in a way which will appeal to a wide readership. The scope extends to include contributions of a more general nature, addressing operating experience, environmental studies, economic aspects and sociopolitical issues in a ‘Broader Perspectives’ section. The international Editorial Board presiding over the journal plays an essential role in the rigorous peer-reviewing of contributions to ensure delivery of high-quality and useful information. Principal Topics:

* Wind rotor technology – aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, wakes, blade design.
* Structural and mechanical engineering of wind power – drive trains, hydraulics, fluid mechanics and mechanical components.
* Electrical engineering of wind power – electrical components, power electronics and controls, generators, grid connection, power transmission and distribution.
* Dynamics and control – materials, fatigue, testing, reliability and certification.
* Resource assessment – prediction, modelling, wind farm planning, siting (including off-shore developments), economics and environmental issues.
* Systems – design, installation, operation, performance, optimisation and control; small, hybrid and autonomous systems and applications other than grid connection such as desalination, water pumping and heating.

These days, a number of individuals are making sure that the nation’s young people are not left behind, and in addition, a number of organizations have been passionately involved in these efforts as well. One such group is Achieve, which was founded in 1996 by the nations’ governors and business leaders. As their website notes, “Achieve serves as a significant national voice for quality in standards-based education reform.” Most visitors will want to start out by taking a look at the “How Does Your State Stack Up?” feature. Here visitors can see how their state’s high school policies measure up with the demands of college and work, and also how well students in each state are progressing through the educational system in general. The site also offers access to “Perspective”, Achieve’s monthly e-newsletter which covers such topics as college readiness and post-college job expectations. Overall, this is a most useful site for both persons interested in the overall state of education in the United States as well as policy makers in this field.
