UK Elsevier among top suppliers revolutionising the NHS through digital transformation - 16 Oct 2018

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, has been added to the new NHS England Health Systems Support Framework, which is intended to act as a 'one-stop-shop' for the regional Sustainability & Transformation Partnerships.

Elsevier is now officially approved as one of the suppliers to be used by the NHS Framework, allowing for faster procurement of Elsevier's solutions. In the wake of an estimated investment of £300m on digital technology, Elsevier's solutions will make it easier for NHS employees to access the knowledge they need to reduce variation of care, provide safer care, and overall, improve patient outcomes. Elsevier is part of RELX Group, a FTSE 100 company.

The NHS framework, which is to be reviewed annually, enables integrated care systems and sustainability and transformation partnerships to procure advanced healthcare solutions and innovations to achieve the transformation identified in the NHS' Five Year Forward Review. The framework appointment includes Elsevier's Arezzo, Care Planning, Order Sets, ClinicalKey, STATdx, ExpertPath, ImmunoQuery, Reference Centres, and Clinical Skills.

Elsevier's appointment is a testament to its work supporting clinicians' faster and better decision-making at the point of care, helping the NHS framework accelerate its digital transformation and drive forward its Population Health Management agenda. The Lot 5 award encompasses informatics and digital tools supporting system-wide planning and management, care coordination and risk modelling.

German 70th Frankfurter Buchmesse comes to an end, international participation increases - 16 Oct 2018

The 70th Frankfurter Buchmesse ended with an increase of 0.8 percent in visitors at the weekend and a slight decrease of 1.8 percent during the trade visitor days. A total of 285,024 (2017: 286,425) visitors attended the fair, 0.5 percent less than in 2017. Overall, international attendance increased at the fair this year, both in terms of exhibitors and trade visitors. With 7,503 exhibitors from 109 countries taking part at this year's Frankfurter Buchmesse, the fair experienced a slight increase. The Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg) also grew once again, with 528 booked tables (2017: 500 tables), 795 agents (788) and 337 agencies (321) from 31 countries, including 19 new agencies. A total of 3,000 people took part in the conferences and workshops in THE ARTS+ area, while 125,000 people visited the innovative area in Hall 4.1. The BOOKFEST events in the Frankfurt Pavilion and in the city attracted 25,000 visitors.

The campaign On The Same Page also attracted international attention. Initiated by Frankfurter Buchmesse and the German Publishers and Booksellers Association and carried out in cooperation with ARTE, ZDF and DER SPIEGEL and with support from the United Nations and Amnesty International, the campaign will be further developed in coming months.

One highlight was the new Frankfurt Pavilion, which was opened by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. World-class authors turned Frankfurter Buchmesse into a literary festival: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie set the tone with her impressive speech on highly current topics such as migration, racism and women's rights. During the five days of the fair, authors such as Paul Beatty, Dmitry Glukhovsky, Maja Lunde, Laksmi Pamuntiak, David Sedaris, Nguyen Ngoc Tu, Meg Wolitzer and many others thrilled their audiences.

UK CAPES signs five-year deal to benefit from CABI’s scientific publications and databases - 16 Oct 2018

The Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES), a Brazilian federal government agency under the Ministry of Education, has signed a five-year deal to benefit from CABI's scientific publications and databases including CAB Asbtracts - an online platform of more than 12 million records.

CAPES is responsible for quality assurance in postgraduate courses with more than 200 institutions serving as members of the academic consortium.

The agreement with CABI means CAPES will not only benefit from CAB Abstracts - providing comprehensive records of applied life sciences including agriculture, environment, leisure/tourism, veterinary sciences, food science and nutrition - but also: anytime, anywhere access to CABI's renowned book list and a reviews journal covering agriculture, global health, nutrition, natural resources and veterinary science.

The deal also includes a range of CABI compendia covering crop protection, animal health and production, aquaculture, forestry and invasive species.

CAB Abstracts alone features publications from over 120 countries in 50 languages, including English abstracts for most articles, giving researchers the fullest global picture for any subject. CAPES had previously been a customer of CAB Abstracts and Compendia on an annual basis before deciding to agree the five-year deal.

US Association of University Presses approved as Associate member of IPA - 16 Oct 2018

The Association of University Presses (AUPresses) has announced that it has been approved as an Associate member of the International Publishers Association (IPA) at the IPA General Assembly.

IPA recently reconfigured membership categories and created the Associate-level membership for international specialised publishers associations such as AUPresses.

IPA membership complements the core values of AUPresses: integrity, diversity, stewardship, and intellectual freedom. Like AUPresses, IPA has stringent membership eligibility criteria and application processes. Similarly, the broad international memberships of both organisations encompass broad views, and diverse political and cultural landscapes, on a large number of policy issues which each must balance.

University presses serve as stewards of the intellectual property of their institutions and authors, as well as stewards of the scholarly record, and of readers' trust. The international work of the IPA on global copyright concerns, such as the work over many years to bring the WIPO Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled into force, is integral to that stewardship.

US DuraSpace and OpenAIRE sign MoU to support global repository network - 16 Oct 2018

DuraSpace and OpenAIRE recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Both companies have a shared interest in a robust, interoperable, and functional network of repositories that provide value to the research community and contribute to Open Science and Open Access in Europe and the world.

Repositories collectively act as the foundation for Open Science by collecting and providing access to research outputs, and play a key role in the emerging scholarly commons. To that end, OpenAIRE and DuraSpace aim to ensure that repositories are using up-to-date technologies and adopting international standards and protocols. Through this MOU, they have agreed to work together on a number of aspects to support their common goals. These activities include enabling DSpace systems to comply with OpenAIRE metadata guidelines, gradual adoption of next generation repository functionalities, and working together on standardised methods for measuring and aggregating usage statistics.

This partnership will support the global community of repository users by improving repository functionality and enabling the adoption of other value added services by repository platforms and aggregators.
