Article Review: Advanced Change Theory Revisited: An Article Critique  [PDF]
R. Scott Pochron
Integral Review , 2008,
Abstract: The complexity of life in 21st century society requires new models for leadingand managing change. With that in mind, this paper revisits the model for AdvancedChange Theory (ACT) as presented by Quinn, Spreitzer, and Brown in their article,“Changing Others Through Changing Ourselves: The Transformation of HumanSystems” (2000). The authors present ACT as a potential model for facilitating change incomplex organizations. This paper presents a critique of the article and summarizesopportunities for further exploring the model in the light of current trends indevelopmental and integral theory.

Khan Najam Ali,Jaiswal Anushree,Choudhray Reenu,Abid Mohammad
International Research Journal of Pharmacy , 2011,
Abstract: Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) caused by negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus in the genus Nairovirus, family Bunyaviridae. (CCHF) is a tick-borne infectious disease characterized by fever, malaise, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sore throat, muscle aches, hemorrhage and thrombocytopenia. CCHF has the most extensive geographic range of the medically significant tick-borne viruses occurring in Africa, Europe and Asia & found recently in India (Ahmadabad) in 2011,become a serious threat to public health. CCHF was first diagnosed and conformed by IgM serology or RT-PCR in Turkey in 2002. Intravenous or oral ribavirin has been used in several countries to treat the disease for more than 20 years.Virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome has been found to contribute to the exacerbation of CCHF in some patients, and the administration of methylprednisolone at high doses was observationally undertaken in patients with CCHF and virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome, with promising results. The intention of this review is to summarize the current status of CCHF with effective therapeutics and preventive measures.
A Comparison of Article Search APIs via Blinded Experiment and Developer Review  [cached]
Jonathan Rochkind
Code4Lib Journal , 2013,
Abstract: This study looks at perceived user preference between products that can provide a scholarly article search service via an application programming interface (API). The study set up a blinded review and asked users at Johns Hopkins to select the service that provided the most useful results. Few statistically significant preferences were detected, and some interpretation is provided of what the results might tell us. The specific products evaluated for this study are: Serials Solutions Summon, Ex Libris Primo, EBSCO EDS, EBSCOHost ‘traditional’ API, and Elsevier Scopus. Re-usable open source tools for implementing article search were created to support the study and future development, and a developer review of the APIs is included based on the developer's experience in this implementation.
EUS-guided choledochoduodenostomy for malignant distal biliary obstruction palliation:an article review
Everson L.A. Artifon;Manuel Perez-Miranda;
Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) , 2012, DOI: 10.7178/eus.01.002
Abstract: The EUS-guided biliary drainage is a new tool for the palliation of distal obstructive biliary lesions. The EUS-guided access,which creates a fistulization between the duodenal bulb and distal common biliary duct, is an effective method to relievejaundice and has low morbidity and mortality, in patients with distal biliary obstruction (pancreatic mass or papillary cancer).This technique is called choledochoduodenostomy and is presented promptly in this article. The EUS-guided biliary drainageshould be made within protocol conditions and done by very experienced endosonographers.
Hirsh Institute Article: Moving from Tradition to Evidence: A Review of Psychiatric Nursing Intervention Studies

Online Journal of Issues in Nursing , 2007,
Abstract: This state-of-the-evidence review summarizes characteristics of intervention studies published from January 2000 through December 2005 in five psychiatric nursing journals. Intervention studies were defined as those evaluating the application of nursing strategies/procedures/practices for enhancing/promoting health or preventing disability/dysfunction. Of 486 research studies published in those journals, 77 were intervention studies, including 77% conducted in the United States. Interventions reflected psychological (57%), social (9%), and biological (12%) dimensions of the biopsychosocial model; 22% of the studies tested interventions with overlapping dimensions. Some studies included persons of various ages; however, 7 focused on adolescents, 36 on adults, and 10 on elders; 2 included children. The findings describe the current state of published intervention research in five psychiatric nursing journals and suggest the need for increased dissemination of intervention research, more rigorous testing of interventions, and more focused programs of research to build evidence for effective psychiatric nursing interventions across the lifespan and globally.

Current Trends in Biotechnology and Chemical Research , 2012,
Abstract: It gives me an immense pleasure to bring out the Volume 2 (Issue 1) of Current Trends in Biotechnology & Chemical Research (CTBCR) to our scientific community with twelve articles including research, reviews and case-studies. CTBCR is a Half yearly Open Access journal that publishes papers related to the study and application of biotechnology related to (i) Medicine, Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, (ii) Agriculture and Plant Biotechnology, and (iii) Environment and Biodiversity. CTBCR recognizes that Biotechnology also relies heavily on chemical research therefore CTBCR will present information on interdisciplinary aspects of chemical research in biotechnology. Also it will address various complexities associated with structure-function and application of chemistry and other tools and techniques applied in Biotechnology. CTBCR will appeal to scientists and engineers in both academia and industry focused on the safe and efficient application of Biotechnology to Medicine, chemistry, Agriculture , pharmacy and the environment. The current issue features articles on phytoremediation looking at the effect of industrial effluents on growth parameters of phytoremediators; predicting de-novo generated, iteratively optimized new lead molecules targeting HIV-1 protease; optimizing process parameters for decolorization of anaerobically digested Molasses Spent Wash using Aspergillus niger. There are couple of excellent review articles on “Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy” and on “Aflatoxins”. The issue also features two case reports and other research articles on antibacterial potential of Ganoderma lucidum extract; synthesis and bioactivity of novel imidazoles; a simpler method to synthesize NiO nanoparticles; template formation by aluminium anodization processes for the synthesis of nanomaterials and lastly an article on formulation and evaluation of fast dissolving tablets of Cefpodoxime proxetil. The main focus of this issue of CTBCR has been on healthcare, pharmaceuticals, nutrition, chemistry, food and agriculture technologies. The issue covers not only basic aspects but also applications and commercialization. Special attention has been given to papers and topics of the interdisciplinary intersections between the major disciplines i.e. medicine and nutrition or chemistry and environment, microorganisms and bio-molecules etc. All the abstracts published in CTBCR do have a wide-reach fulfilling our primary aim for sharing of the knowledge and for contributing to the progress in the study area. While thanking all the editorial board members for their contin
Reasoned opinion on the review of the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for azimsulfuron according to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005

EFSA Journal , 2012, DOI: 10.2903/j.efsa.2012.2941
Abstract: According to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has reviewed the Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) currently established at European level for the pesticide active substance azimsulfuron. In order to assess the occurrence of azimsulfuron residues in plants, processed commodities, rotational crops and livestock, EFSA considered the conclusions derived in the framework of Directive 91/414/EEC as well as the European authorisations reported by Member States (incl. the supporting residues data). Based on the assessment of the available data, MRL proposals were derived and a consumer risk assessment was carried out. No information required by the regulatory framework was found to be missing and no risk to consumers was identified.
