German universities may lose access to Elsevier journals with still no sign of a deal to allow continued access
Around 200 German universities will lose their subscriptions to Elsevier journals within weeks, because negotiations have failed to end a long-term contract dispute. The conflict between Elsevier, the world’s biggest publisher of scientific journals, and Germany’s entire university system has dragged on since 2015. Academics in the country lost access to Elsevier content briefly early this year, but it was later restored while contract talks resumed. Advocates of open-access publishing worldwide say that victory for the German universities would be a major blow to conventional models of scientific publishi...

Scientist's accidental exhale leads to improved DNA detector
(University of Rochester) Researchers at the Universities of Rochester and Ottawa have developed a novel nanoscale device for detecting DNA biomarkers. The device, described in Nano Letters, preconfines translocating molecules using an ultrathin nanoporous silicon nitride membrane separated from a single sensing nanopore by a nanoscale cavity. The membrane serves as a pre-filter and improves the DNA sensing capabilities of the nanopore in multiple ways. The article will be featured on the cover the February issue of the high impact journal Nano Letters. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
