IET announces full release of Inspec Analytics, its new research intelligence tool   - 18 Jul 2019

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced the full release of Inspec Analytics, a research intelligence tool to help research professionals explore global trends in physics, engineering and technology research.

With the changing landscape in scholarly communications placing increased emphasis on measuring the impact of research outputs, Inspec Analytics has been developed to support researchers, strategic managers and libraries in assessing the value and impact of research and make strategic decisions about the direction of their projects, departments and collaborations.

The full release includes the ability to investigate the research collaborations of organisations, to filter results by location and organisation type, and enhanced interactive views which provide deeper insights into high-level and niche disciplines, allowing users to explore research trends based on organisations, controlled terms or subject classifications. Strategic managers will also benefit from being able to see an organisation’s global ranking for each field and compare one institution with another to set benchmarks.

Users can currently access Inspec Analytics directly via the IET’s platform. The IET is also currently working with vendor partners to allow a seamless experience for users with access to existing Inspec platforms including: EBSCO Host, Engineering Village and Web of Science. Inspec Analytics is available as part of the Inspec subscription.

IOP Publishing announces inaugural issues of energy and biomedical journals   - 18 Jul 2019

The first content has been published in two IOP Publishing’s journals portfolio – Progress in Energy (PRGE) and Progress in Biomedical Engineering (PRGB).

The two journals were launched to cater for the needs of specific research communities, providing a platform for knowledge sharing and offering researchers the opportunity to collaborate and shape the future direction of research in their fields.

PRGE aims to address the wide-ranging and important issues facing the world’s energy transition system. Nigel Brandon of Imperial College London serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. The three articles in PRGE’s first issue reflect the range of topics the Journal will address.

PRGB features reviews and opinion pieces in the most significant and interesting areas of biomedical engineering research. Metin Sitti of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. In PRGB’s first issue, there are two review and one perspective articles.

Library and Archives Canada joins the Canadian Research Knowledge Network as institutional member   - 18 Jul 2019

The Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) has announced Library and Archives Canada (LAC) as its 77th institutional member. As the national custodian of Canada’s documentary heritage, LAC has been contributing as an institutional member of Canadiana.org, which merged with CRKN in April 2018, since its inception.

Earlier in 2019, LAC, along with CRKN members, contributed to making the Canadiana collections available at no charge to users.

As part of CRKN's merger with Canadiana.org, CRKN’s by-laws were updated to include optional institutional membership for Library and Archives Canada, as well as the Toronto Public Library and Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec.

Prior to the merger with Canadiana, CRKN collaborated directly with LAC to provide funding for the Héritage project, in which Canadiana and LAC worked jointly to digitise the microfilms of LAC’s most highly used archival collections. Representatives of LAC sit on CRKN’s Preservation and Access Committee and on both of its associated task groups, the Heritage Content Priorities Task Group and the Platform Technical Task Group.

First Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum scheduled for September 9   - 18 Jul 2019

The University of Basel and the MDPI Sustainability Foundation will be organising the First Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum on September 9, 2019.

The aim of this event is to provide background and perspectives on Plan S to Learned Societies, which have to make well-informed decisions to transition their journals to Open Access (OA).

The BSPF will bring together several representatives of Learned Societies, Plan S architects as well as representatives from various publishers and publishing platforms. After getting the big picture from cOAlition S, panel discussions will allow to better understand the diverse challenges that Learned Societies are facing to transition their journals to OA as well as to identify sustainable, implementable and scalable solutions for successful Open Access transition.

Questioning the drug firms-scientists nexus

The US Center for Science in the Public Interest has questioned medical journals for not revealing the financial relationship the authors hold with drug companies for the studies that may potentially benefit the companies. . Scientists whose researches are funded by drug companies often publish their reports in prestigious scientific journals. Drug companies who fund the reports claim the results of the study while marketing the product. Publishers of the journals are left clueless about the funding agreement.   Click Here


Study analyses pricing trends of scientific journals

Allen Press had conducted an annual study to identify the pricing patterns of scientific and medical journals. The research covers the 2004 pricing of US journals and gives recommendations on the pricing structure for 2005. It carries comparisons between the pricing structures of non-profit society journals and discusses general pricing trends in the US. The author also ranks the journals based on the subscription charges and science categories with higher prices. The paper also forecasts the pricing strategy of science journals in 2005.   Click Here


Publishers opening up to Open Access archiving

Researchers have voiced their support to Open Access (OA) that makes their works available to anyone free of cost. While commercial publishers have given a subdued response to OA, scientists welcome OA archiving, wherein institutions or academics maintain an electronic format of the studies submitted by the scientists. Amidst disapproval from publishers and scientific groups, OA archiving is gaining acceptance from developed nations. Economic factors, existing subsidised but limited free content supported by publishers and an inclination to traditional publishing are a few reasons that impede support for OA archiving from developing countries.   Click Here


Open access movement gaining ground in STM publishing

The “open access movement”, which is rapidly gaining ground in the area of STM publishing, stresses the free use of online medical research. As commercial publishers set high prices for medical periodicals and libraries struggle to sustain amidst shrinking budgets, a debate has flared up on the need for open access. Clinical and basic researchers point out that as these studies are funded by the government, the publishers must make them available for free. The increasing use of electronic format of journals has induced independent publishers, such as ASCO and JCO, to host e-journals as an extension of their respective membership programmes and educational missions.    Click Here


Do science publishers still have a role?

The open access movement is gaining momentum. Critics have voiced their strong protests against the pricing of STM journals. The spiralling prices were, in fact, the major reason for the launch and rapid spreading of the open access movement. Does this mean the end of SRM publishers? No, says Bill Town in his article in Computing.   Click Here
