Letter from Dr. Stephen I. Katz: Communicating Research Progress and Impact

In Dr. Katz’s May letter, he reviews the NIH’s new guidance regarding the use of preprints, which are manuscripts before they have been peer-reviewed, edited or published. The notice clarified reporting instructions for preprints — and other interim research products — to allow investigators to cite and claim them as products of NIH funding. Dr. Katz also reminds grantees that press releases, videos, publications, interviews with reporters, and other communications must mention NIH support. Dr. Katz’s provides several examples of this which you can read in his full letter, here.

National Osteoporosis Month Week 4: Pathways to Prevention: Osteoporosis and the Patient (and Caregivers)

ASBMR continues to recognize National Osteoporosis Month this week through highlighting the pathways to prevention. Pathways to osteoporosis prevention are more important now than ever as fewer individuals at high risk for osteoporotic fractures are being treated. Follow along as we cast a spotlight on JBMR articles, Annual Meeting Sessions, and recent bone science articles that highlight methods of osteoporosis prevention. We also ask that you share pictures of your office, recently published articles, patient testimonies, and more with us so that we can highlight all that our members are doing to prevent and treat this disease. For more information on what ASBMR is doing throughout National Osteoporosis Month, click here.
