UK Springer Nature and VSNU renew open access publishing agreement - 13 Mar 2018

Springer Nature and the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) have renewed their agreement to secure open access publishing for Dutch universities up to 2021.

VSNU and Springer Nature together were the first to sign a hybrid open access agreement of this type in 2014. The original agreement, combining subscription and open access publishing rights into one contract, also signalled a commitment to rapidly moving towards open access publishing for all publicly funded research results from the Netherlands.

Since then, the proportion of Dutch articles published open access in Springer Nature journals has risen from 34 percent in 2014 to 84 percent in 2017.

UK Oxford University Press extends partnership with DeepDyve - 13 Mar 2018

DeepDyve and Oxford University Press (OUP) have announced that OUP has agreed to make over 400 journals available via DeepDyve's innovative scholarly journal rental platform. The collaboration follows a successful pilot program dating back to 2012 whereby OUP made a subset of its titles available via DeepDyve.

DeepDyve - which markets its service to researchers unaffiliated with an academic library - offers its users affordable, flexible access to the most sought-after, peer-reviewed content currently available. The addition of OUP's considerable collection further cements DeepDyve's position as the leading online rental service for scholarly content.

UK Health Research Alliance launches new application powered by Figshare and Dimensions - 13 Mar 2018

The Health Research Alliance has launched a new application, HRA Open, powered by Figshare. HRA Open will allow HRA member-funded awardees to link their awards to their research outputs and deposit publications into PubMed Central.

HRA Open is an HRA-sponsored web-based service that promotes open science by providing a space for awardees to upload and share other materials related to funded projects, including figures, datasets, presentations, and other funder-approved research outputs. In addition to being able to deposit publications into PubMed Central (PMC), awardees can search the database of grants and awards for their awarded funding and submit their research outputs under that grant.

HRA has partnered with The National Library of Medicine (NLM) to enable HRA member-funded awardees to deposit their publications into PMC using the HRA Open platform. Links that have been made between awards from HRA member organisations and their awardees are provided to the NLM to facilitate open and public access of awardees' publications and research outputs.

Awardee information is provided by HRA Reporter, HRA's awardee database. HRA Reporter is powered by Dimensions, a Digital Science platform that connects awards, grants, publications, clinical trials and patents. From Dimensions, HRA Open enables users to explore information on over $1.3 trillion of grant funding from more than 250 research funders around the world.

This application is live now and research outputs are available at https://hra.figshare.com/

Claire Kremen is Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at University of California, Berkeley. She is also the Faculty Director for the Center for Diversified Farming Systems and the previous (Founding) Faculty Co-Director of the Berkeley Food Institute. Professor Kremen has an outstanding track record in the field of agriculture, ecology and biodiversity and she was awarded the 2007 MacArthur Foundation 'genius' Fellowship in recognition of her exceptional contributions.

Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems aims to advance the debate on sustainably achieving global food security by publishing rigorously peer-reviewed and Open Access research across the whole food supply chain.

As the founding Field Chief Editor of Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems, Professor Kremen envisions building on the great start that the journal has already made, and bringing in more topics and more voices to the conversation.
