Journal Changes for 2022
Megan von Isenburg, Associate Dean for Library Services & Archives
Anu Moorthy, Associate Director, Content & Discovery
There are several changes to Duke's journal subscriptions for 2022. Library staff across Duke have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with publishers Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley that were up for regular renewal, with an eye toward containing excessive annual increases for journal prices. When reviewing specific journal titles, we examined several variables, including usage data, journal price, article cost-per-use, journal Impact Factor, and the number of articles by Duke researchers in the journal.
While these cancellations will mean that the journals will no longer be available for immediate access at Duke, journal articles not available through university subscriptions can be requested through our Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Service at no cost to Duke patrons. Average turnaround time for Interlibrary Loan requests is 2 business days.
The following journal titles will no longer be available for current access; however, access to previous years will continue.
- Anatomical Record
- Artificial Organs
- Biochemical Pharmacology
- Birth Defects Research
- Genetic Epidemiology
- Journal of Cellular Physiology
- Journal of Comparative Neurology
- Leukemia and Lymphoma
- Prenatal Diagnosis
- Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology
- Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior
In addition to the journals above, the libraries will no longer have access to the two large packages of journal titles listed below. Many of the journals previously accessible through these packages will be available through other packages, but some will no longer be available.
- Elsevier Freedom Collection
Access will cease, except for those specific journal titles noted in "Additions" below.
- Wiley Full Text 2017 Collection
Access for prior years up to 2017 will continue.
New Platforms Based on Cancellations
Some titles will switch platforms. The following journal titles will now be available through ClinicalKey rather than ScienceDirect.
- Transplantation and Cellular Therapy
- Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Oral Radiology
- Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging
- Health Policy
- Psychiatry Research
- Physiology & Behavior
Most of the titles below, which were previously in one of the two journal packages that are being canceled, are being added to our subscriptions because they meet our criteria for inclusion based on cost, usage, journal quality, and relevance.
- Acta Ophthalmologica
- Australian Occupational Therapy Journal
- Clinical Genetics
- Clinical Simulation in Nursing
- Diabetes Obesity & Metabolism
- European Journal of Cancer Care
- Experimental Dermatology
- European Journal of Neurology
- European Journal of Pain
- European Urology Oncology
- Geriatrics & Gerontology International
- International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics
- International Journal of Mental Health Nursing
- International Nursing Review
- The Journal for Nurse Practitioners
- Journal of Clinical Nursing
- Journal of Nursing Management
- Journal of Occupational Science
- Journal of Professional Nursing
- Journal of Radiology Nursing
- Journal of Sleep Research
- Journal of Surgical Oncology
- Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis
- Nature Cancer
- NEJM Evidence
- Nurse Education in Practice

Transformative Agreement with Cambridge University Press
Lesley Skalla, Research & Education
Authors who want to publish an article in an open access journal or publish in a standard subscription journal as an open access article, typically need to pay an "article processing charge" (APC) in order to cover the cost of publishing by the publisher. Duke University Libraries, including the Medical Center Library & Archives, now have a "Read and Publish" agreement, also known as a "transformative agreement," with Cambridge University Press(CUP) so Duke researchers can publish articles open access at no cost in specific journals covered by this agreement. In addition, users will have access to CUP's journal content. To find out what CUP journals fall under this agreement, use CUP’s checker tool and enter Duke University School of Medicine.
To be eligible, your article must:
- Have a corresponding author affiliated with Duke University. Authors must use their @duke.edu email address to qualify for the APC waiver.
- Be original research – eligible article types include research articles, review articles, rapid communications, brief reports and case reports.
- Be accepted for publication in a Cambridge University Press journal covered by the agreement.
- Be accepted for publication from January 1, 2022.
Highlights of the Process
- Submit your research using your institutional affiliation (ideally using ORCID). Please note that eligibility is based on the corresponding author's affiliation.
- Upon acceptance, choose the Gold Open Access option in your author publishing agreement form and select a creative commons license.
Transformative agreements work to shift the publishing model from one that is based on library subscriptions requiring payment to read articcles (but publishing is free) - to one that allows everyone to read for free but the cost of publishing is covered. Open access publishing allows the authors' work to be more visible with potential for increased viewership, reach, and possibly even greater citations. An added benefit is that authors retain their copyright allowing them to freely share and adapt their articles.
Please note that Duke also has an agreement with BMJ to cover the costs of article processing charges for BMJ Case Reports and BMJ Open Quality. Please refer to our Where to Publish Web page for details.
Archives Oral Histories - Department of Medicine
Lucy Waldrop, Assistant Director for Medical Center Archives
In the August 2021 issue of our newsletter, we featured “Archives Oral Histories" which outlined what an oral history is and the types of oral histories held at the Medical Center Archives. In the October issue, the second offering of this multipart series highlighted the newly redesigned and updated online exhibit of "Women in Duke Health," a unique historical perspective from women in multiple fields at Duke, many who were pioneers or “firsts” in some way in their disciplines. In the February issue, we featired the David C. Sabiston Oral History Project, initiated by the Department of Surgery as a way to collect memories from people who knew him in order to write a definitive biography. In this issue, we highlight the Department of Medicine Oral History Project started in 2020.
Duke University Hospital, Duke University School of Medicine (DUSOM), and DUSOM's Department of Medicine were all established in 1930. The Department of Medicine is the largest of 23 departments in the DUSOM and is comprised of 12 divisions spanning the specialties of Internal Medicine. Each division includes faculty physicians and investigators, as well as house staff and laboratory trainees, who help to deepen the understanding of their specialty. Currently, the department has more than 600 faculty members including national leaders in their specialties, principal investigators in large national networks, and leaders in campus institutes and centers that facilitate team science. The collaborative nature of the department drives their clinical leadership, research success, and innovations in medical education. Since its inception, the Department of Medicine has forged vital partnerships to advance research, patient care, and medical education at Duke University. Connect to the Department of Medicine’s Website to learn more about their history.

Update: ZScaler and Use of Library Resources
ZScaler, an Internet and Web gateway security tool, is being implemented across Duke Health. Users have reported barriers to accessing Library resources when ZScaler is running on their Duke computers. For example, it may appear that Duke does not have access to a resource when we actually do.
DHTS has devised a strategy to allow access to Library resources while on campus. However, if you are having issues getting access, please submit a ticket with the subject “Zscaler” to DHTS at https://duke.service-now.com/sp.
Library Staff Support World Down Syndrome Day
Mindy Guzman, Program Assistant, Administration
On Monday, March 21st, you may have thought that some of our Library staff were so tired from the beautiful weekend that they forgot to match their socks correctly. However, many of our team members were showing their support and raising awareness for World Down Syndrome Day, officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
The date of 3/21 is symbolic because individuals with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. The mis-matched socks are symbolic since our chromosomes are shaped like socks, and people with Down Syndrome have an extra or "spare" one. People all over the globe have taken part in the #LotsofSocks campaign by wearing mis-matched or spare socks on 3/21. Therefore, it has become tradition to show support and raise awareness on a day that the Down Syndrome community advocates for equal rights, well-being and inclusion.

New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy
Lesley Skalla, Research & Education
In October of 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy. Beginning in January 2023, this policy will require that all NIH researchers prospectively plan for how their scientific data and accompanying metadata will be preserved and shared by submitting a Data Management and Sharing Plan in their grant applications. This new plan goes into effect on January 25, 2023 replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. The new policy continues NIH's commitment to making sure that the results and outputs of NIH funded research are available to the public.
What do you need to know about the new NIH DMS policy?
- The new policy applies to any researcher funded in whole or in part by NIH whose research generates scientific data, whereas the current policy only applies to grants requesting more than $500,000 of direct costs in a single year.
- The policy requires investigators to submit an official Data Management and Sharing Plan as part of their request for funding. It does not require researchers to share data per se but expects them to maximize their data sharing. NIH strongly encourages the use of established repositories to the extent possible for preserving and sharing scientific data.
- It allows investigators to request funding for personnel costs or other fees related to data management and sharing activities; however, the money must be spent during the grant’s award period.
- Grant reviewers will see the data management plan and can comment on the budget, but plans are not used to determine the grant’s scientific merit.
- Researchers will need to think ahead when planning research projects to take data sharing into consideration. For example, those planning clinical studies will need to clearly communicate with prospective subjects via informed consent documentation about how their scientific data are expected to be used and shared.
- The approved plan becomes a part of the terms and conditions of the grant. Compliance will be monitored at regular reporting intervals and may factor into future funding decisions.
Additional Sources of Information
- NIH’s newly released FAQs are intended to help clarify the new DSM Policy and will be updated on an ongoing basis.
- Additional supplemental information from NIH includes Elements of an NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan, Allowable Costs for Data Management and Sharing, and Selecting a Repository for Data Resulting from NIH-Supported Research. The NIH Office of Science Policy has some additional resources on scientific data sharing.
- For guidance on how to create a data management plan, please see the "Develop the data management plan" page on Duke’s myResearchpath Website.
- Research data policies at Duke University are in the process of being updated. For more information, please visit the Research Data Initiative Website.
As you look ahead to this new requirement, we can help develop efficient and supportive services before the policy takes effect. Please address any concerns and questions to email@example.com.
Virtual Covid-19 Town Halls
Lucy Waldrop, Assistant Director for Medical Center Archives
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Duke Health assembled a COVID-19 Response Team (now named Duke Health Leadership). Along with Duke Health Nursing, they began to hold virtual town halls where they discussed Duke Health’s and Duke Nursing’s clinical response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each town hall had a theme, panelists, and a Q&A session for participants. Some themes included: COVID-19 patient surge preparations, COVID-19 testing, nursing issues, PPE, COVID-19 patient care, clinical and operations updates, COVID-19 vaccine, return to school, Duke Health’s voter registration and turnout initiative for the 2020 elections, and Moments to Movement (Duke Health’s collective stand against systemic racism and injustice). These videos are available for viewing as a continuing series.
Two years into the pandemic, these town halls still play an important role for Duke Health Leadership to get vital information out to the Duke community. Since the start of the pandemic, Duke University Medical Center Archives (DUMCA) has been actively collecting this content for our holdings in order to capture the day-to-day actions of the Duke University Health System during the COVID-19 pandemic.While the bulk of this content contains the previously mentioned videos, DUMCA has also collected more content from the Duke Health COVID-19 Website including the Document Library files; Duke Health marketing plans; other video messages pertaining to Duke Health's clinical response to the COVID-19 pandemic; and images taken by Shawn Rocco, photographer and multimedia producer for Duke Health Marketing & Communications as he traveled between Duke University, Duke Regional and Duke Raleigh hospitals to document the many ways employees prepare and care for patients with COVID-19.
For more information about this growing collection, contact the Medical Center Archives or consult the Office of Creative Services and Marketing Communications Records Finding Aid.

Q & A
1. How would you describe where you grew up?
Though we were not Amish, I grew up on a "homesteader farm" in a Mennonite Amish farming community in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. My grandparents started the farm and we had cows, chickens, pigs, and Black Angus cattle. We bartered with nearby families for a lot. It was very self-sufficient but sheltered.
2. What did you do before coming to Duke?
Right after high school, I got an administrative job with a construction company that moved around the country building Walmart Distribution Centers. I helped workers get settled, managed the office, and did a lot of clerical support when the sites were breaking ground.
3. How did you land at Duke?
I started working in the Espress Oasis coffee shop at Duke North in 1988, and after a short time, I eventually became the Operations Manager. After six years with Espress Oasis, I was lured away to be the Administrative Assistant for Dr. Jeffery H. Lawson. I had a two year old daughter at the time and thought it would be a good change. Surgery became my home for the next 18 years.
4. Describe yourself in three words. Thoughtful, Dedicated, Loyal
5. Who has influenced you most in how you approach your work?
Margie Dickerson, who was my mentor when I started my career and throughout my time in Surgery at Duke. She taught me organization, routine, and time management skills that I pride myself in to this day.
6. What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
I planned an international vascular meeting with over 500 attendees and 60 events from cadaver surgeries to galas.
7. Is there anything about you that others might be surprised to know?
I’ve never had the hiccups.
8. What's the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?
Doritos dipped in vanilla pudding to calm morning sickness.
9. What’s one thing you’d love to try? Knitting
10. What is your favorite television show?
Reality TV – Housewives and Serial Killers are my go to!
