Thieme Stresses Importance of Publishers’ Role in Defending the Independence of Science

Thieme Publishing Group, one of the major providers of medical and health publications, media and services, strongly advocates the freedom of scientific inquiry and publication. The publisher also underlines this commitment by contributing to the current campaign launched by the German Publishers’ and Booksellers’ Association (Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels). In an editorial published in various English-language Thieme journals, Dr. Daniel Schiff, Senior Vice President of Thieme Group’s U.S. subsidiary Thieme Publishers, stresses the key role publishers play in distributing high-quality, peer-reviewed academic information.

Academic publishers, Dr. Schiff says, are responsible for coordinating the process of knowledge preparation and distribution. New scientific insights are evaluated and selected through professional review processes, including peer-review, before they are edited, didactically enhanced, and processed for publication in renowned academic journals. In addition, publishers ensure the promotion as well as systematic distribution and archiving of these results in cooperation with academic libraries and multiple other partners. In his editorial published in numerous Thieme journals, Schiff states: “In these activities we help build, protect and conserve the integrity of the corpus of scientific knowledge.”

Dr. Schiff also stresses the importance of marking and defending the line between corroborated facts and unconfirmed claims, saying that “we have and will continue to validate and distribute peer-reviewed data and content, whether consistent or not with assumed truths. In these uncertain times, these are values which always need defending.”

In more than 150 journals, Thieme Publishing Group provides regular updates on the latest research and practical insights.

One Win, Three Honorable Mentions for Thieme Publishers at 2017 PROSE Awards

Thieme Publishers is proud to announce that four of its titles have been honored at the prestigious 2017 American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (The PROSE Awards). Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade won first prize in the category Textbook/Clinical Medicine, with Neuroendoscopic Surgery and Neuro-Ophthlamology Illustrated (2nd Edition) receiving honorable mentions in the same category. Another honorable mention went to The Surgery Journal in the category Journal/Award for Innovation category.
“We are thrilled that four of our titles have been honored by the Association of American Publishers,” said Fiona Henderson, International Marketing Director at Thieme Publishers. “With the first prize in Textbook/Clinical Medicine for Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade, the jury acknowledged author Alan R. Cohen’s achievement in creating an essential pediatric neurosurgery resource that also conveys the personal wisdom gained from decades of experience. The honorable mentions for Neuroendoscopic Surgery andNeuro-Ophthlamology Illustrated in that same category indicate the increasing importance of excellent textbooks in the field of neuromedicine.”
Thieme’s The Surgery Journal, a highly innovative open-access journal that is pushing the boundaries of more established publishing methods, received an honorable mention in the category Journal/Award for Innovation. The Surgery Journal allows authors to submit their articles in any format they prefer (“Submit how you want”). Once their article has been peer-reviewed and accepted, they pay an APC fee that they feel is most suitable (“Pay what you want”). “The Surgery Journal bridges all surgical specialties, bringing together the expertise we have established across many journals in the field,” Daniel Schiff, Senior Vice President at Thieme Publishers said. “The honorable mention is proof that our innovative publishing approach benefits authors, readers, and the field.”
Honored titles
Pediatric Neurosurgery: Tricks of the Trade, winner of the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, is a uniquely exacting subspecialty in which surgeons are given the extraordinary privilege of alleviating suffering for gravely ill children, and in best-case scenarios, restoring their health. Understanding the vast and complex anatomy, pathology, and pathophysiology that evolves throughout childhood presents considerable challenges. Further, the field is rapidly progressing with advancements in neurodiagnostic imaging and surgical instrumentation, as well as an expanding knowledge of the molecular and genetic bases underlying many neurosurgical disorders.
The multimedia textbook Neuroendoscopic Surgery, honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, reflects the technological advances achieved in the last two decades in fiber optics, cold light, cameras, and endoscopic instrumentation. Written by an impressive Who's Who of international neurosurgeons, the outstanding text and videos reflect global contributions to neuroendoscopy.
Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated, 2nd Edition, honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Award for Textboook/Clinical Medicine, is an up-to-date, beautifully illustrated text that guides readers in recognizing signs and symptoms, localizing pathology, developing a differential diagnosis, and selecting a management strategy. The content in this new edition reflects the most recent advances in neuro-ophthalmology.
The Surgery Journal (TSJ), honorable mention at the 2017 PROSE Journal Award for Innovation, is a unique, all-encompassing, open access journal for surgeons and trainee surgeons of all disciplines, as well as other medical professionals engaged with the support and surgical treatment of patients. All articles in TSJ undergo rigorous blind peer review. As an open-access publication, all articles in TSJ are made freely available for all to read and download from Thieme Connect.
About the PROSE Awards

Thieme Signs Agreement on Sharing Principles for Academic Publications

STM, the global trade association for academic and publishers, has developed sharing principles that serve as a guideline for academic, technical, and medical publishers worldwide. Thieme belongs to the signees of these voluntary principles for sharing scholarly articles in academic networks.

Scientific progress thrives on exchange and sharing. Approaches and solutions, study results and their interpretation, insights and experiences need to be shared, taken up, and evolved. Academic contributions by scientists and researchers, made available by scholarly publishers around the world, play a key role in this. The sharing principles were designed to ensure the smooth flow of information between scientists and researchers while protecting the rights of copyright owners and publishers.

Thieme is committed to the values represented by the sharing principles. It is our goal to make medical information accessible in the best possible way, to disseminate it, and raise the scientific community’s awareness for it. As a publishing corporation, we represent the claims of copyright owners and authors, and protect their contributions against unauthorized use.

For our authors, this means that their contributions made in the context of non-commercial research projects may be made available to involved scientists and researchers as part of a mutual knowledge exchange. Articles may be shared and distributed readily within research groups working on a specific project. Clearly defined standards allow the publisher to determine how often and in which form an article was used and distributed under the sharing principles. This gives Thieme a chance to measure and understand how articles and content are used within the scientific community and to continue to optimize its service. Thieme guarantees to protect the users’ privacy and data security in the processing of usage data. The publisher also supports the dissemination of metadata and open access articles through the relevant academic networks, thus helping to increase the visibility and reach of each academic article.
