US AWIS launches STEM Equity Community Platform with Elsevier’s support - 26 Jun 2019

The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) has announced the launch of the ADVANCE Resource and Coordination (ARC) Network Community which connects scholars and practitioners committed to equity in STEM. In support of this initiative, a href="https://www.elsevier.com/" target="_blank">Elsevier’s leading reference manager and academic social network, Mendeley, will host a dedicated ARC Network group. In addition, SSRN, Elsevier’s leading early stage research and preprint server, will host a dedicated STEM First Look series to support the initiative.

SSRN will publish the Equity in STEM ‘First Look’ series, a quarterly digest of a wide range of STEM equity content and early stage research. The series will include presentations, white papers, videos, podcasts and webinars. Each curated issue will allow peers from the ARC Network Community to share content, empowering the community with early-access to the tools and knowledge needed for change.

Available at www.equityinstem.org/firstlook, the inaugural publication provides a historical perspective of the National Science Foundation ADVANCE program and outcomes of and lessons learned from past awardees.

In addition, the ARC Network is collaborating with Mendeley to host a dedicated online group. Members will access and contribute to a rich library of curated resources – including reports, articles, datasets, toolkits, videos and more – that serve as an important part of systemic change efforts. As the go-to hub for community collaboration, the platform also offers members the opportunity to share events hosted by the community and their institutions, as well as online learning opportunities, such as webinars and virtual workshops.

US HighWire provides hosting and submissions technology for the new preprint server - 26 Jun 2019

Scholarly publishing tech provider, HighWire, is supporting the founders of medRxiv, by providing the hosting and submissions technology that underpins the new preprint server.

medRxiv, is a collaboration between its founding organisations, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL), BMJ and Yale University. It is a free online archive and distribution service for preprints in the medical and health sciences, allowing researchers to share manuscripts before they are peer-reviewed and published in academic journals.

The server, which publishes its first articles, is hosted on HighWire’s JCore platform. A part of the HighWire Hosting solution, JCore provides a powerful content ingestion, enrichment and publishing infrastructure for journal websites. BenchPress, part of the HighWire Submissions solution, integrates with JCore providing manuscript submission and management. Its best-in-class configuration enabled the HighWire team to build a system specific for medRxiv, that provides the flexibility to adjust to changes in editorial practice or peer review process.

Both BMJ and CSHL are already long-standing individual HighWire customers. CSHL has chosen HighWire for its journal hosting requirements for many years and further partnered in 2013 to develop and launch bioRxiv, the preprint server for biology. BMJ has worked with HighWire since 2005, using HighWire’s journal platform and hosting services supporting over 70 journals.

By facilitating early dissemination of new findings medRxiv will enable authors to receive feedback that helps improve the final published article. Researchers from around the world can submit manuscripts, regardless of their organisational affiliation, and an international advisory board will oversee the service.
