Netherland Registrations for 10th Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing now open - 24 Apr 2018

Registrations are now open for the 10th anniversary of the annual conference, the Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP). The conference will take place on September 17th-19th, 2018, at the University of Vienna, Austria.

As in previous years discount is being offered on registration fees to OASPA and OAPEN members. This year, the discount on COASP registration fees is being extended for academics and librarians at the member rate.

Now in its 10th anniversary year, COASP is a major annual scholarly publishing conference that brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing, and unite in their shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible. In this celebratory year for COASP, the conference will kick off with an 'Early Movers' panel, in which key actors from the early years of the open access movement - Vitek Tracz, David Prosser, Susan Murray, Marin Dacos, Leslie Chan, and Caroline Sutton - discuss the history of the movement and the great progress in open access publishing that has been made since COASP held its first conference in 2008, and reflect on where open access publishing is heading today.

The conference will host a broad range of interdisciplinary global perspectives on other panels and in keynotes, and offer a large number of networking opportunities for further discussion and collaboration between attendees. Delegates from a wide range of backgrounds at all stages of their careers who are working in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries are welcome.

Panel topics this year are: F.A.I.R. Research Outputs; Open Access Monographs; Transformative Agreements; and New Models in Open Access Publishing. The full program for the conference will be announced soon.

The conference is being discussed on social media with the hashtag #COASP10. Enquiries regarding the conference should be directed to coasp@oaspa.org.

German Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics 2018 awarded to Dutch physicist for his contributions in the field of interface engineering - 24 Apr 2018

The 2018 Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics will be awarded to Guus Rijnders of the University of Twente in the Netherlands for his research on pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The award, which includes a prize of US$5,000, will be presented at the Magnus-Haus in Berlin, Germany on October 5, 2018, and will be accompanied by a public lecture given by the winner.

The Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics recognises researchers who have made an outstanding and innovative contribution to the field of applied physics. It has been awarded annually since 1998 by the editors-in-chief of the Springer journals Applied Physics A - Materials Science & Processing and Applied Physics B - Lasers and Optics. Winners in previous years have included Roland Wiesendanger, Xiang Zhang and Viktor Malka.

Guus Rijnders investigates complex materials, particularly those used in electronic devices, such as brain-inspired electronics and sensors. He focuses on the structure-property relation of atomically engineered complex (nano) materials, especially thin-film ceramic oxides, which include ferromagnetic, ferroelectric as well as piezoelectric materials. Atomic control of such materials enables new functionalities, such as interface conductivity at oxide interfaces and multistate ferroelectrics. As one of the leaders in the field of PLD, and a driving force of interface engineering, Rijnders is one of the few major researchers who openly addresses controversial topics in the field. He has also successfully brought PLD from the laboratory to industry as the co-founder of two companies.

US The American Phytopathological Society to preserve e-journals with Portico - 24 Apr 2018

The American Phytopathological Society (APS) is working with Portico to preserve its Phytopathology, Plant Disease, Plant Health Progress, and Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions e-journals content, as well as its new Open Access title, Phytobiomes, ensuring that these journals will be secure and available into the future.

The Society's mission is to discover and disseminate new knowledge of plant systems worldwide to meet humanity's need for safe and nutritious food, affordable fiber, sustainable forests, and verdant landscapes; and to promote the development and adoption of economically and environmentally sustainable practices to ensure plant health. Members of APS conduct research teach, and participate in outreach for academia, industry, and government.

The applications of their work are documented in APS's publications, most of which are now preserved with Portico.
