UK Springer Nature and IBM Watson Health collaborate to create deeper insights from cutting edge scientific and medical research - 21 Aug 2018

Springer Nature has announced a collaboration with Watson Health to expand and enhance the integration of valuable genomics research content from Springer Nature to Watson's ecosystem. The collaboration will significantly extend Watson's AI and machine learning technology access to content from leading Springer Nature journals, giving researchers and health professionals using Watson even more access to genomics research in varied medical and health science settings.

IBM Watson Health offerings have always integrated research literature from Springer Nature based on its subscription access. As part of this data collaboration, Watson Health will have broader access to peer-reviewed genomics-related journal content from Springer Nature journals, including Nature - the leading international weekly journal of science founded in 1869 - Nature Genetics and Nature Medicine.

The improved access will allow Watson to enhance the extraction of genomics data used to generate reports that provide insights to oncologists in defining treatment pathways. This collaboration framework will also allow Watson Health to use Springer Nature content in more flexible ways for different circumstances.

Switzerland Chief Editors Jeroen Saeij and Stefan Kappe launch new section in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology - 21 Aug 2018

Chief Editors Jeroen Saeij of the University of California, Davis, and Stefan Kappe of the Center for Infectious Disease Research, Seattle, will launch a new Section in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology. This section will publish research addressing the host-parasite interactions of eukaryotic pathogens. This new section will seek to encourage interdisciplinary research that can tell us more about how hosts and parasites interact.

Parasite and Host spans both the human host and vector organisms; key perspectives in the study of parasitic infectious disease. This section will cover a wide range of disciplines, including: genomics, genetics, molecular biology and bioinformatics, among others.

The Parasite and Host Section as well as its latest Research Topics Toxoplasma gondii Host Interactions: A Story of Immune Attack and Parasite Counterattack and Recent Progresses in Amebiasis are currently open for submissions.

Netherland Royal Society & Max Planck Digital Library sign OA agreement - 21 Aug 2018

ACCUCOMS has assisted in a new agreement being signed between the Royal Society and Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL). All MPDL institutions will now benefit from a new agreement on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for the Royal Society's open access journals Open Biology and Royal Society Open Science.

The Royal Society has published scientific journals since 1665, inclusive of all scientific disciplines and drawing from sources across the globe. The fellowship, made up of many of the world's most distinguished scientists, is committed to recognising, promoting and supporting excellence in science for the benefit of humanity.

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) in Munich is a central unit of the Max Planck Society that supports scientists from all Max Planck Institutes with a broad portfolio of services in the fields of information provision, publication support and research data management. The MPDL arranges for access to a wide range of scientific journals, eBooks, specialist databases and extensive open access publication services. Together with the libraries at the Max Planck Institutes, it takes care of an excellent supply of scientific information and opportunities for publication.

UK Digital Science integrates over 1.4 M patents from Russia into Dimensions platform - 21 Aug 2018

Research technology company Digital Science has integrated over 1.4 million patents from Russia into its Dimensions platform, which provides information on scholarly research activity worldwide.

The only research insights platform to consistently link Russian patent information to publications from universities and research institutes globally, Dimensions aims to transform the way research is discovered, accessed and analysed.

In addition to patents, Dimensions is also the most complete source of funded grant information, with data for projects totalling over $1.3tn funding from more than 250 organisations worldwide, including key funders from G20 and OECD countries and beyond. It enables users to explore the connections across the research lifecycle by linking this extensive funding and patent data with their associated publications, clinical trials and scholarly metrics.

With the new integration of Russian Patent Office data, provided by patent services company IFI CLAIMS, sourcing the records directly from Federal Institute of Industrial Property (FIPS) as well as European Patent Office (EPO), users of Dimensions are able to easily explore all of the patents and further refine search results to specific years, disciplines, and legal status.

Individual publication pages within the platform will also show where publications have been referenced in Russian-issued patents, making it possible to identify the paths leading to the commercialisation of research from around the world.

US Registrations now open for 2019 LibQUAL+ survey - 21 Aug 2018

The Association of Research Libraries is inviting libraries to join the global assessment community of LibQUAL+® by registering for the 2019 LibQUAL+ survey.

LibQUAL+ is a tool that libraries use to solicit, track, understand, and act upon users' opinions of service quality. The protocol is a rigorously tested web survey that helps libraries assess and improve library services, change organisational culture, and market the library.

Since 2000, more than 1,300 libraries in 35 countries have participated in LibQUAL+, including college and university, community college, health sciences, and academic law libraries. This growing community of participants and its extensive data set of more than two million completed surveys are rich resources for improving library services.

Past participants may register on the LibQUAL+ website and may be eligible for reduced fees. Institutions that participated in LibQUAL+ in 2018 will receive a discount of $1,000 on their 2019 survey registration, and institutions that last participated in 2017 will receive a discount of $500.

As a benefit of registration, participants are able to view results for all libraries participating in the same survey year. For access to the full set of survey results from 2000 through 2019, institutions may purchase an annual LibQUAL+ Membership Subscription for $1,000.

Registration is ongoing and enables participants to implement a survey at any time during the two LibQUAL+ survey sessions in 2019: Session I: January 15–May 31, 2019; and Session II: July 1–December 9, 2019. Registration for the 2019 survey year will close on November 1, 2019.

In addition, ARL is offering free online training for LibQUAL+ survey administrators in January 2019. Topics covered will include preparing for a survey, random sampling, communications planning, and survey administration. Training registration information will be released later in 2018.
