US AAAS announces 'Plant Phenomics' as second journal in new Science Partner Journal program - 17 Aug 2018

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the non-profit publisher of the Science family of journals, has announced that Plant Phenomics, the official journal of Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU), will be the second journal in its Science Partner Journal program. Plant Phenomics will be distributed by AAAS in association with NAU.

The aim of Plant Phenomics is to publish novel research that can advance all aspects of plant phenotyping in whole plant or cellular levels through novel mathematical and computational technologies in phenotypic data analyses, and to connect phenomics to other research domains, such as genomics, genetics, and physiology, to address key scientific challenges in related areas, including plant sciences and agriculture.

The scope of the journal spans the latest technologies for high-throughput acquisition of all phenotypes, phenotypic analysis based on image analysis through machine learning, new mathematical algorithms for extracting phenotypic information, and phenomics-enabled plant biology linked to other domains in molecular biology, plant physiology, statistics, and crop models. The journal will also publish new applications of phenomics in crop cultivation, plant breeding, and agriculture.

Professor Seishi Ninomiya of the University of Tokyo, Professor Frédéric Baret of the French National Institute of Agricultural Research, and Joint Professor Zong-Ming (Max) Cheng of the University of Tennessee and Nanjing Agricultural University will serve as the co-editors-in-chief of the journal. Huan Yin from Nanjing Agricultural University will serve as the journal's Managing Editor.

The editorial office for Plant Phenomics will open for submissions in September 2018, and the journal will officially launch in January 2019, publishing original research papers, reviews, and perspectives. The journal will publish under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY), meaning that content will be freely available to all readers upon publication. Additional information about the journal, prior to the Plant Phenomics website going live and opening for submissions in September, will be available on the Science Partner Journal program homepage: www.sciencepartnerjournals.org.

New titles participating in the Science Partner Journal program will launch on a semi-annual basis and participation in the program is restricted to English-language publications. AAAS is actively seeking new partners across scientific disciplines. Organisations participating in the Science Partner Journal program will be editorially independent and responsible for the content published in each journal. To oversee the publication process, each organization will provide professional editors committed to best practices in peer review and author service.

German Thieme unveils new discovery tool for synthetic chemistry methods - 17 Aug 2018

Medical and scientific publishing house Thieme has announced the launch of SynOne, a new discovery tool that allows the scientific community to search, browse, and discover selected publications from the Thieme Chemistry portfolio. Organised systematically by compound classes to ensure easy access, SynOne links up content from journals and reference works - including SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT, SYNFACTS, Science of Synthesis and Pharmaceutical Substances. The innovative interface offers organic chemists fast access to relevant and reliable syntheses in context.

SynOne enables users to use novel and intuitive ways of browsing compound classes as well as search and discover selected Thieme Chemistry content. It is possible to search for molecules of interest and break them down into potential precursors. Users can identify useful functional groups and related compounds. SynOne's content is organised by compound classes, allowing for a systematic search - with a few clicks users can access reliable content relating to their chosen product class. The content can be browsed in tree view, grid view and map view.

Users can also search for content via metadata search terms or draw and upload structures. The search machine will then find all the relevant information sources enabling the researcher to start working on new ways of designing and constructing molecules.

Users can search for selected functional groups across several SynOne categories, for example, organometallics, hetarenes and hydrocarbons, as well as special topics. With a few clicks they have access to current awareness articles from SYNFACTS, primary literature journal articles in SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, full-text synthetic methodology reviews in Science of Synthesis and encyclopedic information from Pharmaceutical Substances. In this way the chemist can get an interesting and accurate overview of a chosen topic very quickly. They can also identify new areas of interest as well as related information and reactions.

Searching SynOne is free and requires no registration. Full access to journal or database articles is available to users with individual or institutional subscriptions to the respective sources.

SynOne helps put synthesis in context. Each of the Thieme Chemistry publications covered in SynOne is supported by an editorial board of internationally renowned experts who ensure that chemical researchers are presented with the latest and - even more importantly - most relevant research in their fields.

US HighWire addresses changing consumer demands with SAMS Sigma - 17 Aug 2018

HighWire, the technology partner of choice for leading commercial and scholarly publishers, has announced that consumers can register and onboard in seconds with its SAMS Sigma identity management application. SAMS Sigma is a customisable self-service platform for publishers that allows single sign-on across multiple content sites, and delivers unparalleled customer experience for the end user; simplifying access to publications and saving time.

SAMS Sigma removes the need for the consumer to re-register and undergo multiple verifications, as users can now sign-on with one single identity across all publications.

Leading publishers are now prioritising and investing in improved customer experience. Market forces are pushing for ease of access for end-users, and greater access control for publishers and institutions. HighWire's system has been built to specifically address these challenges for the publishing industry, and SAMS Sigma reaches beyond the capabilities of conventional platforms, extending publisher control to include identity, authorisation and verification in one place, across multiple journals.

HighWire built SAMS Sigma to support all current authentication methods, including name and password, trusted referrer, IP, library card and Shibboleth.

The standalone product has been designed to work in concert with HighWire's platform, but can also integrate into publishers' existing technology stacks; fully customisable on all profiles and licenses. This further enables bespoke reporting according to each publisher's needs across content entitlement, licenses and subscriptions, conflicting IP ranges, voucher usage, and emails. Through its single identity sign-on, SAMS Sigma also provides publishers with a powerful view of tracking activity across all journals.
