1. An examination of the effect of open versus paywalled access

 PURPOSE: We aimed to assess the impact of open access (OA) versus paywalled 
 access (PA) publication on Altmetric Attention Scores (AAS) and whether AAS 
 correlates with future citation count access in the context of intensive care 
 medicine (ICM) and anesthesia.
  METHODS: 1854 and 2935 publications, in the year 2015, were identified in ICM 
 and anesthesia respectively, using a Pubmed search. The mean AAS was measured 
 for each article.
  RESULTS: More ICM articles were OA, compared to of anesthesia articles (38.9% 
 v 35.0% p = 0.02). The mean AAS for OA ICM publications was significantly 
 higher than that of PA ICM publications (17.34 vs 8.45, p < 0.01), however, 
 this was not observed when examined in a fixed follow up time frame. AAS 
 appear to correlate with future citation counts.
  CONCLUSIONS: ICM publications that are available as OA in the medium term 
 result in higher AAS when compared to PA publications, this phenomenon was 
 not observed in anesthesia. AAS correlate with future citation counts, 
 however, a larger study is required to confirm this.

2. Is infertility as visible as it needs to be given its importance to 
    women's health? Results from a review of women's health journals.

 Infertility is a disease of the reproductive system. It has profound social, 
 economic, psychological, and physical consequences, particularly for women. 
 Given the persistence of preventable or untreated infertility, we assessed 
 the level of attention women's health journals have given to 
 infertility-related concerns. We found a minimal number of articles on 
 infertility in the past 15 years of four women's health scientific journals. 
 We encourage more submissions and subsequent publications on infertility to 
 women's health journals in order to enhance the ability of health educators 
 and women's healthcare providers to promote knowledge and advance awareness 
 of this public health issue.
