US Artificial Intelligence - driving next generation innovation in Southeast Asia, says new report - 14 Mar 2018

Southeast Asia is one region that has invested heavily in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and as a result boasts huge growth in its AI capabilities and understanding. Developers in Southeast Asia are increasingly competing to uncover new approaches and broaden its reach. By recognizing AI's capacity to influence both business and social settings, the region has published a diverse range of AI-related research papers and patents in recent years.

This analysis was developed in partnership between Dr. Diu Seng See, Solution Consultant (Southeast Asia), Scientific and Academic Research, and Ridhma Dhar, Solution Consultant (Southeast Asia), IP Solutions, both of Clarivate Analytics.

Subject matters include not just computer algorithms, but also semiconductors, robotics, medicine, and biochemistry, thus highlighting the versatility of AI and its potential applications to impact everyday lives. How vibrant is the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and innovation landscape of Southeast Asia? Who are the key players dominating this field in the region?

According to the Web of Science (as of September 2017) and Derwent Innovation, more than 24,000 AI-related papers have been published in Southeast Asia, with Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand accounting for 86% of output. The earliest paper was dated 1985. Southeast Asia has published AI-specific patents during the past 20 years with consistent growth since 2013. Between 1997 and 2016, patenting activity in Singapore was dominated by the innovation surrounding semiconductors, image recognition and speech recognition.

The London Book Fair will present the LBF Lifetime Achievement Award 2018 to Sara Miller McCune, Founder and Executive Chairman of SAGE Publishing.

The Lifetime Achievement Award recognises an individual who has made a truly significant mark in the sphere of global publishing. It is open to publishers, agents, editors, scouts and anyone else involved in international publishing from any country in the world. Last year the award was presented to Luiz Schwartz, Companhia das Letras. The London Book Fair's Advisory Board voted for Sara Miller McCune from a shortlist of international publishing figures.

Sara Miller McCune is a visionary publisher, philanthropist, and entrepreneur. She oversaw the growth of SAGE from a start-up to one of the largest independent publishing companies in the world. For over 50 years, she has led the publishing industry in business, through her tireless support for social science research and through her passion for philanthropy.

She founded SAGE in 1965, aged just 24, and oversaw its phenomenal growth, founding major publishing offices in UK (1971), India (1981) and Singapore (2006). Guided by an entrepreneurial spirit and an unwavering dedication to academia, Sara has made it her life's work to challenge and break down borders within publishing and society. She has been at the forefront of numerous publishing innovations from championing of urban studies, media studies, black studies, and family violence (to name only a few examples). She also supported new research methods such as evaluation research and new statistical techniques. She remains actively involved in the company's expansion and development, and still serves as the executive chairman.

The LBF Lifetime Achievement Award in International Publishing will be presented at the International Excellence Awards, an invitation-only event on April 10, 2018, 6.30pm in The Conference Centre, Olympia, London.

UK VSNU and the Royal Society of Chemistry Publishing unable to reach new agreement for access to journals - 14 Mar 2018

The Dutch universities and Royal Society of Chemistry Publishing (RSC) have been unable to reach a new agreement on access to scientific journals. The VSNU's aim in the negotiations was to secure a transition to open access without Dutch academics having to pay double to access articles. The costs of transitioning to open access would be substantially higher with this publisher than what is being currently paid for access, and therefore was unacceptable to the Dutch universities.

RSC is a non-profit publisher in a specialist field with a high-quality journal package. The VSNU would reopen negotiations with RSC if and when the publisher is willing to make comprehensive and fair agreements on open access. RSC may as a result discontinue read access to the journals.

Agreements about subscription fees for academic journals are made with academic publishers on behalf of all of the Dutch universities. The VSNU is currently negotiating with these publishers on the universities' behalf. The universities are only willing to renew the subscription agreements on the condition that publishers bring open access closer to becoming a reality.

US McGraw-Hill Education and Unizin in deal to make affordable digital learning materials available to 25 universities and nearly 1 million students - 14 Mar 2018

Learning science company McGraw-Hill Education has announced a new agreement with Unizin, Ltd. ("Unizin") to provide its 25 member universities with affordable, high-value, digital learning materials through an Inclusive Access model - automatically giving students easy access to materials on the first day of class. The non-profit Unizin consortium serves nearly 1 million students and is dedicated to improving teaching and learning environments with digital technology.

Under the agreement, all McGraw-Hill Education materials will be available to Unizin member universities for the same low, flat fee, which will save students money. Content will be available to students and faculty either on Unizin's Engage eBook platform or McGraw Hill Education's Connect® digital learning platform. The two organisations will also contribute data to the Unizin Data Platform (UDP) and collaborate on learning analytics to support faculty and students.

Inclusive Access is one of the ways McGraw-Hill Education has expanded its ability to make learning materials more affordable for students. To date, the company has worked with more than 275 institutions on Inclusive Access programs, including Unizin member Indiana University.

The McGraw-Hill Education catalogue will enrich Unizin's already large marketplace for content and learning technologies. Publisher agreements and the Inclusive Access business model are key components of Unizin's vision for a university-owned and driven marketplace.

US Oncotarget publications to be indexed in Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's Meta database - 14 Mar 2018

Oncotarget has announced that its peer-reviewed research publications will be indexed in Meta, a world-renowned database of scientific literature, alongside other Impact Journal publications. Meta was acquired by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in an effort to make Meta's artificial intelligence (AI) technologies available to enhance scientists' ability to search, read, and tie together millions of scientific papers.

The partnership enables Oncotarget's publications to be quickly disseminated to scientists around the world. The expansion of Impact Journal's indexing is a huge step for Oncotarget and the scientific community, as it enables Oncotarget's publications to be searchable in an enormous database, and according to Tech Crunch, Meta assists scientists with analysis on their areas of research along with determination of experiments previously performed and finding new opportunities for investigation.

A similar idea about new knowledge generated through reviewing accumulated results and linking it into testable chains and networks was published by the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Oncotarget, Mikhail Blagosklonny, and the Editorial Board Member, Arthur Pardee, in 2002. DOI:10.1038/416373a

UK Applications for 2018 Altmetric Annual Research Grant now open - 14 Mar 2018

Alternative metrics provider Altmetric has opened the call for applications for its 2018 Annual Research Grant.

First awarded in 2016, the grant provides up to £1,500 ($1,900 USD) to support research studies that explore different facets of altmetrics or a related topic that impacts the research ecosystem.

Previous winners of the grant, which aims to support projects that would not otherwise receive the necessary funding, include Dr Lauren Cadwallader of the University of Cambridge and Dr Evan Goldstein from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr Cadwallader and Dr Goldstein conducted projects that focused on where, how and why academic articles were referenced in public policy and on Wikipedia.

For the 2018 grant, Altmetric is encouraging applications from academics, researchers and librarians globally that offer new insight into the data. The review panel is particularly interested to receive ideas which focus on lesser-studied attention sources and move beyond examining correlations between altmetrics and citations.

All applications for the 2018 grant will be reviewed by a panel of research experts that includes Simon Porter, VP of Academic Relationships & Knowledge Architecture at Digital Science; Mike Taylor, Head of Metrics Development at Digital Science; Euan Adie, Founder of Altmetric; and Stacy Konkiel, Director of Research & Education at Altmetric. Grantees will be announced on May 8, 2018.

The deadline for applications is 11pm GMT on April 20, 2018. Interested parties may visit https://www.altmetric.com/research-grant/ for more information on how to apply and to submit a proposal.
