US ProQuest and EBSCO extend ebook partnership to support customer choice - 19 Aug 2019

ProQuest and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) have extended their existing ebook partnership, which will continue to enable librarians to acquire ProQuest ebook titles through EBSCO’s GOBI® Library Solutions platform, as well as EBSCO ebook titles through ProQuest’s OASIS platform and – in the future – the ProQuest Rialto™ marketplace, currently under development.

This relationship was originally announced in 2015 after EBSCO acquired YBP Library Solutions and its GOBI platform, and ProQuest acquired Coutts and its MyiLibrary and OASIS platforms. The partnership has now been extended for an additional four years. There will be no changes to customer contracts or account contacts.

The agreement allows librarians to continue to purchase titles from the vendor of their choice within their preferred ordering platforms.

Netherland Applications now open for 2020 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards - 19 Aug 2019

OWSD is pleased to invite applications for the 2020 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards. These awards reward and encourage women working and living in eligible developing countries who are in the early stages of their scientific careers, having often overcome great challenges to achieve research excellence.

Awardees must have made a demonstrable impact on the research environment, both at a regional and international level, and must have received their PhD in the last ten years. Each award winner receives a cash prize of USD 5,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting, held every year in U.S.A. during February.

Previous winners say the awards have had a powerful effect, enhancing the visibility of their past work and creating new opportunities for the future. The 2020 Awards will be given in the fields of engineering and technology. Evidence of innovation will be considered favorably.

Specific eligible fields include: Civil engineering Electrical engineering, electronic engineering Telecommunications/information engineering / Software engineering Computer science Mechanical engineering Chemical engineering Materials engineering Medical engineering Environmental engineering Environmental biotechnology Industrial biotechnology Nanotechnology.

Applicants must have lived and worked in one of the eligible science and technology-lagging countries for at least 5 of the last 15 years. All information is also available from the OWSD website in Spanish.

US AAS and DPS launch gold OA Planetary Science Journal - 19 Aug 2019

Research articles reporting significant developments, discoveries, and theories about planets, moons, small bodies, and the interactions among them will soon have a new showcase: The Planetary Science Journal (PSJ). This online publication is being launched by the American Astronomical Society (AAS), the major organisation of professional astronomers in North America, in conjunction with the largest of its six topical divisions, the AAS Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS). The new journal will publish important research directly relevant to our solar system and other planetary systems, including observational results, theoretical insights, modeling, laboratory studies, instrumentation, and field studies.

PSJ joins the Astronomical Journal (AJ), the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), ApJ Letters (ApJL), and the ApJ Supplement Series (ApJS) as the newest of the AAS's peer-reviewed research journals, which are produced in partnership with IOP Publishing in the United Kingdom. But PSJ will differ from AJ and the ApJ family in an important way: It will be entirely ‘gold open access,’ meaning all its articles will be free for all to read immediately upon publication. Though the other AAS journals allow authors to publish their articles under the gold open access model for an additional fee, the default for those journals is ‘green open access,’ in which articles are available only to paid subscribers for the first year and then freely to anyone after that period.

Like the other AAS journals, PSJ will feature a quick turnaround from receipt through review to publication. The Editor of the new journal is yet to be named; the AAS and DPS have launched a search among the community of planetary scientists and expect to have someone in place soon. The PSJ Editor, along with Ethan Vishniac, Editor in Chief of the AAS journals, will rely on a combination of established AAS Science Editors and new Science Editors for the PSJ — along with the AAS Publishing team — to guide submissions through peer review and revision and then transmit accepted manuscripts to IOP Publishing for online publication.

US ARL, CNI, EDUCAUSE announce strategic partnership to advance research libraries’ impact in a world shaped by new technologies - 19 Aug 2019

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and EDUCAUSE are working together to better understand how research libraries, as collaborative partners in the research and learning enterprise, can best advance research and learning during these times of significant changes in the production, dissemination, and reuse of digital content.

The three partner organisations are focused on understanding how such technologies and emerging disciplines as data science, artificial intelligence, mobility and ubiquitous networking, cloud and ambient computing, augmented/virtual reality, and the internet of things are—and are not—fundamentally transforming the way research and learning occur. More specifically, the partners will focus on understanding the role research libraries are playing and need to play in this dynamic context.

This project is organised in three phases over 18 months. It will engage experts, leaders and community members from research libraries, information technology, higher education, the research enterprise, and the three organizations. The project will develop a set of recommendations and possible actions for key stakeholders, the broader community, and the partner organisations to consider in response to findings related to questions such as: Based on technologies considered most critical in research and learning, what knowledge and competencies do research library leaders and staff need? What can research libraries do now to advance their knowledge and practice in these technologies given their current and potential impact on research and learning? What support is needed to do so? How should research libraries remain strategically aligned with and capable of adopting digital innovations as collaborative partners in advancing research and learning?

As a result of the recommendations, the organisations will seek to create pathways that position research libraries to positively impact the research enterprise under dynamic digital conditions that continue to dramatically change the world.
