EBSCO Discovery Service and EBSCOhost users can now visualize altmetrics from Plum Analytics   - 24 Jun 2016

EBSCO Information Services has announced that the overall research experience for users of EBSCO Discovery Service™ and EBSCOhost® databases is improving with the addition of altmetrics data from Plum™ Analytics, an EBSCO company. By integrating the Plum Print widget into these platforms, users will have a view of modern metrics that allows them to uncover new research insights.

EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) and EBSCOhost customers will be able to view the Plum Print to visualize the research impact of all items in the results list, including: articles, books chapters, e-books, and institutional repository materials. Powered by the PlumX Suite, the Plum Print visually changes depending on the altmetrics found in each of the five categories: Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media and citations, providing added research insight at the artifact level.

The Plum Print will appear in the EDS and EBSCOhost search results, giving researchers a highly visual way of evaluating resources, and the ability to quickly focus on information of interest to them. Hovering over the Plum Print highlights a brief visual breakdown of the altmetrics, and clicking on it brings users to the Plum Suite platform for more in-depth information.

According to EBSCO Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategy, Mark Herrick, the integration is one way EBSCO is using its technological assets to improve the research experience.

ProQuest expands number of titles available through Access-to-Own to almost 400,000 titles   - 24 Jun 2016

ProQuest has announced that it has grown the number of titles available through Access-to-Own to almost 400,000 and dramatically increased publisher participation in just eight months with its latest acquisition model launching next month. ProQuest developed Access-to-Own in collaboration with libraries and publishers around the world to provide a usage-based acquisition model that offers a balanced approach and a wider array of frontlist as well as backlist titles to libraries and the researchers they serve.

Access-to-Own will be available on ProQuest's Ebook Central platform that enables libraries to tailor their book acquisition workflows according to their unique priorities. Whether it’s run as part of Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) programs or in combination with subscription and perpetual archive models, Access-to-Own offers a middle ground between short-term loans and outright purchase, facilitating title ownership by applying budget dollars spent on ebook rentals to perpetual purchases. Access-to-Own is ideal for research institutions and academic libraries that want to employ usage-based purchasing to secure frontlist content and prefer that a greater proportion of their collection fund spend goes toward ownership rather than short term access.

ProQuest has already signed more than 205 publishers to its growing roster of Access-to-Own participants. Some recently signed publishers and distributors include Harvard University Press; Independent Publishers Group (IPG); Policy Press; Edinburgh University Press; University of Chicago Press; and Schweitzer.

Libraries will be able to purchase directly from ProQuest or participate in Access-to-Own through DDA programs via key partners, including Coutts/Oasis (early Q3) and YBP/Gobi (starting in late Q3-Q4 2016). Libraries interested in Access-to-Own should contact their ProQuest Sales Specialist or Content Workflow Consultant to get started.

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
