UK Cambridge University Press launches new content sharing service - Cambridge Core Share - 11 Dec 2017

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has launched Cambridge Core Share, a new sharing service providing the academic community and wider public with greater access to research.

Built with users' in mind, Cambridge Core Share is a new tool that enables authors and readers to easily generate a link to an online, read-only journal article. This link can be freely shared on social media sites and scholarly collaboration networks to enhance both the impact and discoverability of research.

This new tool has been developed on Cambridge Core and the functionality has been added to over 120 journals during an initial pilot phase.

German De Gruyter set to publish the Scandinavian Journal of Pain - 11 Dec 2017

Academic publisher De Gruyter and the Scandinavian Association for the Study of Pain (SASP) will be cooperating to publish the Scandinavian Journal of Pain (SJPAIN), which has most recently been published by Elsevier. The new cooperation will begin with Volume 18 (2018) which will appear in the first quarter of 2018.

Scandinavian Journal of Pain, the scientific journal of the researcher-network Scandinavian Association for the Study of Pain, is a comprehensive forum for original research from international researchers, on all aspects of pain including the nature of pain, pain mechanisms, and pain management. In order to bring pain-researchers and pain-clinicians up-to-date on important issues, the journal also encourages submissions of topical reviews.

Scandinavian Journal of Pain provides a broad and stimulating approach to new pain-related research by also commissioning editorial comments published together with accepted papers. The editorial comment highlights the significance of the research in the paper and often provides a concise review of the topic of the paper. This puts the papers into context of the present climate of pain research.

Scandinavian Journal of Pain publishes basic and clinical research, systemic and topical reviews, hypothesis-generating case-reports and observational studies as well as letters to the Editor. The abstracts of presentations at scientific meetings of SASPare also published online.

US STM Advisers LLC helps set the Mathematical Association of America's publishing on a new course - 11 Dec 2017

STM Advisers LLC (STMA), a financial advisory and consulting firm in scientific and scholarly communications, recently assisted the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in successfully exploring strategic alternatives for its high quality mathematics books and journals publishing programs.

Over a fifteen month collaboration, STMA worked with the MAA to evaluate alternatives for its book and textbook program, as well as for its three mathematics journals and one magazine, The American Mathematical Monthly, Mathematics Magazine, The College Mathematics Journal, and Math Horizons. In the eyes of MAA's Executive Director, Michael Pearson, both programs, while venerable and prestigious, lacked sufficient scale to have the financial and outreach impact the Association desired.

STMA recognised the value of the MAA's programs to third parties, and orchestrated separate licensing programs for both elements. This involved STMA's own examination of the properties and preparing comprehensive offering materials. STMA then confidentially contacted, on the MAA's behalf, a number of commercial publishers and societies to determine their interest in partnering with the MAA.

Based on this strong interest, STMA coordinated a carefully controlled bidding procedure, first for the MAA's journals and magazine, and subsequently for MAA Books. This process resulted in bids from multiple parties for both programs, and after presentations and negotiations a winning partner was selected for each program. The net financial benefit to the MAA will be, over the life of the strategic relationships, more than $10 million.

On September 29th, the American Mathematical Society (the AMS) and the Mathematical Association of America announced an agreement for the AMS to acquire the MAA's book publishing program. The high-quality mathematics titles and textbooks developed and edited by MAA Press will now be published as an imprint of the AMS Book Program. The agreement includes all existing MAA Press books, as well as a renewable license to continue to publish new books under the MAA Press imprint.

Beginning in January 2018, the MAA journals and magazine will be published in collaboration with Taylor & Francis.

US Hypothesis annotation technology now available to publishers hosted on PubFactory platform - 11 Dec 2017

Hypothesis annotation technology is now available to publishers hosted on the PubFactory platform, which houses more than 400,000 books and 1,400 journals. Enabling this standards-based interoperable tool brings collaboration to any content hosted on the web, a capability foreseen by early technology visionaries like Vannevar Bush and Marc Andreessen. Hypothesis supports scholars throughout the research life cycle, as well as educators assigning collaboration projects to their students, and working groups across market segments and disciplines.

Publishers have long sought a way to enable authors, editors, reviewers, and readers to have discussions directly on published versions of record. Integrating annotation on publishing platforms enables publishers to extend the services they provide to their users to include direct conversations and easy ways to add additional information to published content.

Annotation can also deliver valuable additional content, connecting published works to a wide variety of related resources in other locations.

PubFactory publishers using Hypothesis will now be able to present a branded annotation layer on their platform. Using Hypothesis, publishers can decide not only who can create annotations, but also who can read and/or reply to them. In addition, annotation group administrators can moderate discussions to provide an additional level of screening. Hypothesis can also be integrated with a publisher's existing user account system, enabling users to annotate without separate account creation or login.

Open annotation has fast become a central component of the research and publication workflow. Over the past two years, Hypothesis has seen dramatic growth in the number of annotations added to published works across the web.

Annotation provides opportunities for engagement throughout the publication lifecycle. Researchers, scholars and publishers engage both before and after publication, while faculty and students are also annotating to center teaching and learning directly in publications and scholarly works.

Publishers wishing to learn more about integrating Hypothesis with PubFactory can register now for a free webinar on January 24, 2018 or contact Heather Staines at heather@hypothes.is.
