UK 37% of UK research outputs freely available immediately at the time of publication, says new report - 06 Dec 2017

The Universities UK Open Access Coordination Group has released a report, according to which, the proportion of UK research which is available via open access is increasing at a considerable rate, with 37% of research outputs freely available to the world immediately at publication.

This report, Monitoring the transition to open access: December 2017, is the second in a series commissioned by the Universities UK Open Access Coordination Group. It aims to build on previous findings, and to examine trends over the period since the major funders of research in the UK established new policies to promote open access.

The research was delivered by a partnership involving Research Consulting, the University of Sheffield and Elsevier, and was led by Jubb Consulting.

According to the report, more than half of UK-authored articles are made accessible for public view within 12 months, either through Gold or Green OA. 37% of UK outputs (vs. 25% globally) are freely available to the world immediately on publication, either through Gold or Green OA.

Further, the report notes that the proportion of UK-authored articles published open access rose from 12% in 2012 to 30% in 2016, an annual growth rate of over 30% sustained throughout the period. The global proportion of articles accessible for public view after 12 months via Gold or Green OA rose from 25% to 32% between 2012 and 2016; and the UK proportion rose from 37% to 54%

The proportion of journals indexed in Scopus that offer immediate OA is rising, with over 60% of journals offering the option in 2016. OA articles are downloaded from publishers' sites more than non-OA articles, says the report.

German Springer and MATRIX to co-publish new book series covering pure and applied mathematics and statistics - 06 Dec 2017

Springer, part of Springer Nature, and the international Mathematical Research Institute MATRIX, based in Melbourne in Australia, have signed a collaboration agreement to publish a new book series. The cooperation further strengthens Springer's relationship with the mathematical sciences in Australia, while also bringing the work of MATRIX and Australian mathematicians to an international audience.

The MATRIX Book Series draws on the expertise of internationally renowned editors David Wood (editor-in-chief), Cheryl Praeger, Jan de Gier, and Terence Tao. The first book in the series, the 2016 MATRIX Annals, documents the scientific activities at MATRIX during its inaugural year. It is due to be published at the beginning of 2018.

The research institute MATRIX was established in 2015 as a dedicated venue for Australian and international researchers as well as industry partners to collaborate on research problems in the mathematical sciences and their applications to science and industry. The directors of MATRIX are Jan de Gier, professor at The University of Melbourne, and David Wood, professor at Monash University.

MATRIX mirrors similar institutes in other countries such as the Banff International Research Station in Canada, Oberwolfach in Germany, the Newton Institute in the UK, and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in the US.

UK Taylor & Francis Group and the Mathematical Association of America announce publishing partnership - 06 Dec 2017

Academic publisher Taylor & Francis Group and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) have announced a new publishing partnership beginning in 2018.

Under the deal, Taylor & Francis Group will publish three journals on behalf of the association: The American Mathematical Monthly, College Mathematics Journal, and Mathematics Magazine, as well as one of the association magazines, Math Horizons.

The Mathematical Association of America is the world's largest community of mathematicians, students, and enthusiasts. The MAA believes that mathematics drives society and shapes our lives. The association aims to advance the understanding of mathematics and its impact on our world.

The new partnership strengthens Taylor & Francis's existing portfolio of journals within the mathematics field, with the addition of these important association publications.

US American Chemical Society names Dr. Stuart J. Rowan as new editor-in-chief of ACS Macro Letters - 06 Dec 2017

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has announced that Dr. Stuart J. Rowan, professor at the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago, has been appointed the new editor-in-chief of ACS Macro Letters, the Society's rapid and urgent communications platform for original research in polymer science. Rowan has served as the deputy editor of ACS Macro Letters since its inception in 2011. He will succeed Editor-in-Chief Timothy P. Lodge in January 2018.

Rowan joined the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University in 1999. In 2005, he was promoted to associate professor with tenure and became a full professor in 2008. Last year, Rowan joined the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. He is a Fellow of the ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry (POLY) and has received a number of other accolades throughout his career, including the Herman Mark Scholar Award from ACS POLY in 2015 and the Morley Medal in 2014. Rowan, who has published close to 150 scientific papers and reviews, focuses on the potential of supramolecular and dynamic chemistry - both covalent and non-covalent - in the construction and properties of structurally dynamic polymeric materials.

ACS Macro Letters publishes research in all areas of contemporary soft matter science in which macromolecules play a key role, including nanotechnology, self-assembly, supramolecular chemistry, biomaterials, energy generation and storage, and renewable/sustainable materials. Lodge, professor of chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science at the University of Minnesota, has served as the founding editor-in-chief of ACS Macro Letters since 2011. Under his leadership, the web-based journal has published timely communications of high-impact research in all areas of polymer science and engineering. Its high quality is demonstrated by an impressive Impact Factor of 6.185, placing it as the leading journal in its field.
