Elsevier said Wednesday that it is the new publisher of The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a division of Wolters Kluwer, has published the monthly journal for the past seven years. Five publishers were in the running for the title, a spokesperson for The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry told MM&M
, and Elsevier was selected after a period of 18-months in which the publishers were considered. "Elsevier was chosen based on the belief that it was best for the long-term growth of the journal -- especially in the international arena," she said. The journal focuses on the diagnosis and classification of late-life psychiatric disorders, psychopharmacology and other topics.
Eli Lilly said its new Erl Wood facility in Surrey, UK, is officially open. The company invested $87.5 million in the new site, which will provide research space for 130 scientists, reported Nature
. The new digs are an addition to the company's neuroscience complex, making it the company's second-largest research site (its US Indianapolis, IN, headquarters ranks first), according to the publication.
