Wiley Introduces New Interactive Training Program

John Wiley and Sons reported the launch of a research publishing learning program, the Wiley Researcher Academy, unique in testing knowledge and understanding.

According to a media release, encapsulating the entire publishing process, the Wiley Researcher Academy is a support tool, establishing the skills needed to successfully publish research, collaborate and mentor.

The program has been created, developed and is launched by a global network of journal editors and industry experts with Dr Andrew Moore as Editor-in-Chief. Contributors include: Dr Bernd Pulverer, Head of Scientific Publications & Chief Editor, EMBO Journal; Dr Margaret Cargill, Adjunct Senior Lecturer, University of Adelaide; Dr Oliver Renn, Head of Science Communication, ETH Zurich.

It has been developed to offer an efficient, effective means to make training on research skills, writing and publishing available to early to mid-level career researchers at universities, academic and R&D institutions and organizations interested in publishing research. The Wiley Researcher Academy provides investment in the future advancement of science and technology and the future growth and sustainability of the global knowledge economy.

"Effective learning is one of the biggest challenges we face. Being able to deliver a scalable solution to everyone that needs it can transform individuals and the world in which we live," said Judy Verses, EVP Research, Wiley

Professor Aaron Ciechanover, Winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, remarked: "Getting educated and trained in the skills one needs in order to publish research results, hypotheses, and models has never been more important, in particular for young scientists, but also for the more established among us: Wiley has taken an important initiative in developing an on-line platform that provides that education and assesses participants' progress. There is no doubt it will help scientists increase the impact of their studies."

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
