Elsevier publishes new Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Biology   - 05 May 2016

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Biology, edited by Dr. Richard Kliman. The four-volume set covers the entire field of evolutionary biology in an easy-to-search structure, making it an ideal reference for professionals and advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Elsevier also announced the publication of three related titles, including Genes and Evolution, the latest volume in the Current Topics in Developmental Biology series.

Written by leading experts in the field, all articles in Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Biology are up to date and fully illustrated with in-text references that allow readers to easily access primary literature. Broad topics include the history of evolutionary biology; population genetics; quantitative genetics; speciation; life history evolution; evolution of sex and mating systems; evolutionary biogeography; evolutionary developmental biology; molecular and genome evolution; coevolution; phylogenetic methods; microbial evolution; diversification of plants and fungi; diversification of animals; and applied evolution.

Dr. Kliman is currently professor of biological sciences at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA, where he teaches courses in genetics, evolution, ecology and statistics. His research interests center on questions in molecular evolution; speciation and natural history; and ecology and conservation. Much of this work has relied on population genetics/genomics and bioinformatics approaches. Dr. Kliman has served on multiple editorial boards and as a program director at the U.S. National Foundation.

With contributions from an international board of authors, Genes and Evolution covers topics such as genes and plant domestication; gene networks; phenotypic loss in vertebrates; reproducible evolutionary changes; and epithelial tissue. It is an invaluable reference for researchers in cell, developmental and molecular biology, as well as genetics.

In order to meet content needs in evolutionary biology, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of evolutionary biologists and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

The four new evolutionary biology titles are Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Biology by Richard Kliman; Genes and Evolution by Virginie Orgogozo; Basics in Human Evolution by Michael Muehlenbein; and Bones and Cartilage: Developmental and Evolutionary Skeletal Biology, Second Edition by Brian Hall.

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
