US Wiley and Clarivate Analytics partner to launch new open peer review workflow - 14 Sep 2018

John Wiley and Sons Inc., a global leader in education and scholarly research; Publons, a peer review platform; and ScholarOne, a manuscript submission system, have announced the launch of the scholarly industry's first scalable open peer review workflow. Academic journals have faced a number of practical difficulties to adopt such models, hindered by complex and established workflows. Through this partnership, Wiley, ScholarOne, and Publons - both part of Clarivate Analytics - have developed a robust and seamless solution to these challenges.

Beginning with Wiley's prestigious journal Clinical Genetics, this is the first open peer review initiative to develop a scalable model applicable to diverse publishing processes. The comprehensive workflow provides alignment to best-practice data privacy regulation, ensuring the individual preferences of authors, peer reviewers and journals are met.

The new workflow enables transparent publication of an article's complete peer review process - from initial review and response through to revision and final publication decision. Alongside the published article, readers can now review a comprehensive peer review history. Each element of the peer review process has also been assigned its own digital object identifier (DOI), enabling future authors to easily reference and cite relevant peer review content.

This initiative will roll out to other journals, publishers and submission systems in the future, in line with Publons' publisher-neutral stance.

In the first session, What's Hot and Cooking in Scholarly and Academic Publishing?, The Scholarly Kitchen Chefs will explore what's next in scholarly communications and separate the hype from reality regarding forthcoming industry developments in a lighting round format.

The second session, the Global Excellence and Diversity Showcase, will feature representatives from Latin America, Asia and Africa - regions that are often overshadowed in the present Western dominated media/ecosystem - who will highlight success stories from their communities in the areas of authorship, publishing and metrics, innovation, and outreach. Focusing on the strengths and opportunities for scholarly publishing in their regions, the panelists will demonstrate how a globally inclusive and diverse ecosystem benefits the whole scholarly publishing community. Speakers include: Veronica Klipp, Publisher at Wits University Press; Andrew Joseph, Digital Publisher at Wits University Press; Cathy Holland, Business Development Manager, Publishing, Digital Science; Aadi Narayana Varma Dantuluri, Head of Product & Innovation and (Co-Founder) Profeza; and YUN Wei, Director of Economics and Management Division, Social Sciences Academic Press (China), Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Australia Southern Cross University opts for Ex Libris Esploro research services solution - 14 Sep 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Australia's Southern Cross University will be joining the Ex Libris Esploro™ early adopter program. The Esploro research services solution will facilitate the capture, management, and dissemination of the university's research output and data across all disciplines and consolidate information about researchers, their publications, and their data. The seamless integration of the Esploro service with both the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, along with the Esploro service's interoperability with other academic systems, will help the university increase the efficiency of its library staff, research administrators, and scholars.

Southern Cross University sought a platform that would be a good match for the Australian academic environment and their institution, both now and in the future. By enabling the University to automatically harvest research data that is currently entered manually, the Esploro service will save time for the staff and provide more accurate metadata. As a result, research assets will be more easily discoverable. Esploro will also help researchers showcase their achievements to prospective research partners, funders, and the scholarly community, contributing to greater recognition of research activity at the University.

As a participant in the Esploro early adopter program, Southern Cross will be closely involved in providing product feedback and shaping the Esploro solution. The first release will be available to early adopters in 2019.

Switzerland Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology launches new section on Microbes and Innate Immunity - 14 Sep 2018

Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology has announced the launch of its latest section, Microbes and Innate Immunity, led by Thirumala-Devi Kanneganti, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Amal Amer of Ohio State University.

The new Chief Editor aims to provide a common platform for researchers working on diverse aspects of antimicrobial innate immunity. Providing free access to the latest research and developments in antimicrobial immunity will no doubt benefit the researchers and students in small institutions or research programs throughout the world.

Authors will not only gain the wide visibility for their study after publication but also benefit from other advantages like transparent peer review and rapid publication that comes with publishing in Frontiers. By providing open access, anyone can access the publications regardless of their institutional affiliations or geographic location.

Microbes and Innate Immunity publishes research on the initial microbial sensing by the host, and the innate immune response and its modulation upon infection by human and zoonotic microbial pathogens, including bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Amal Amer and Thirumala-Devi Kanneganti join Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology's outstanding board of Specialty Chief Editors.

Microbes and Innate Immunity is now open for submissions and is accepting Research Topic proposals.

US OCLC Research and CARL partner to gauge innovation trends, priorities in research libraries - 14 Sep 2018

OCLC Research has announced that it is conducting a survey on innovation trends and priorities in research libraries, in partnership with the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL). The survey is being sent to library directors at 31 institutions in Canada.

The survey aims to gain intelligence regarding trends, capacities and priorities within the research library community. This will help CARL, OCLC and the OCLC Research Library Partnership (RLP) to identify strategic opportunities and may reveal areas for possible future collaborations between the partnering organisations. This will inform future joint activities between OCLC and the research library community in Canada and scope the opportunity space for OCLC Research and the RLP.

This survey follows a similar survey that was sent to library directors at 238 institutions in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, France, and Italy in 2017. OCLC Research will also survey research libraries in Australia and New Zealand, under a partnership with the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL).

OCLC Research will be responsible for administering and analysing the survey results and will share findings with CARL for dissemination to its members. In addition, OCLC Research will share the data gathered in this survey, so that others can make their own interpretations.
