UK Springer Nature announces divestment of InfoChem GmbH to DeepMatter Group Plc. - 15 Mar 2019

Springer Nature has announced the completion of the sale of InfoChem GmbH to DeepMatter Group Plc. InfoChem has built up a set of high-quality chemical data-management and synthesis prediction software and tools, serving global pharmaceuticals and chemicals giants such as AstraZeneca and BASF.

Following the transaction, Springer Nature will hold a minority stake in DeepMatter, and Bettina Goerner, who leads the database research group at Springer Nature, will join DeepMatter’s board as a non-executive director.

Deepmatter Group Plc is quoted on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), and has developed DigitalGlasswareTM, an artificial intelligence-enabled cloud-based software and hardware platform allowing chemistry experiments to be accurately and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data cloud. This enables chemists to work together effectively, sharing the details of their experiments from anywhere and in real time, to help avoid work being needlessly duplicated, and ultimately so new discoveries may be made faster.

UK IOP Publishing launches 2018 annual report - 15 Mar 2019

IOP Publishing (IOPP) has launched its annual report for 2018. The report showcases the company’s strong performance in 2018, and explains how it plans to respond to the challenges facing scientific publishing.

IOPP recorded an impressive all-round performance in 2018, thanks to the strong relationships its people have developed with its customers – authors, referees, editorial boards, librarians and partner organisations. The report shows how IOPP uses this emphasis on customer experience, as well as its global reach and focus on operational excellence to provide impact, recognition and value for the physical science communities.

Alongside that, as a specialist publisher, IOPP must manage the multiple expectations of researchers, funders, and librarians with ever-greater efficiency, while providing the same high quality of service to all its customers and partners.

The annual report sets out how IOPP is responding to challenges in scientific publishing: increasing the visibility of the research it publishes, through both technical means and an expansion of its open access publishing; increasing impact and recognition for its authors; and supporting the scientific mission of its partners by providing operational excellence and guidance across all stages of the publishing cycle.

US Barnes & Noble Education and SAGE Publishing partner to increase inclusive access models on campuses nationwide - 15 Mar 2019

Barnes & Noble Education, Inc., a provider of educational products and services solutions for higher education and K-12 institutions, has announced a new agreement with SAGE Publishing, an international provider of innovative, high-quality content for teaching, learning, and research. As a result of the companies’ expanded relationship, SAGE eBooks will be made available through inclusive access models offered on campuses served by BNED nationwide through its Barnes & Noble College and MBS Textbook Exchange subsidiaries.

Inclusive access models, including Barnes & Noble College’s First Day™model, offer course materials at reduced prices through a course materials charge for participating programs. Students have the option to receive their materials on or before the first day of class, delivered seamlessly through their learning management system.

A recent survey from Barnes & Noble College Insights℠ found that more than a third of college students felt unprepared for the first day of the 2019 spring semester. Inclusive access models ensure students have the materials they need at the start of the semester, allowing faculty members to begin instruction on day one and ultimately driving positive outcomes for students, faculty and institutions.
