German Springer celebrates 175 years since its founding - 11 May 2017

Scientific publisher Springer is celebrating its 175th company anniversary. The foundations for today's company were laid on May 10, 1842 when Julius Springer, at the age of 25, opened his bookstore and publishing house in Berlin. His aim was to bring current and accurate scientific findings to the wider public. The publishing house remained a family business for four generations. Now Springer is an international scientific publisher with over 50 locations worldwide, and it belongs to the publishing group Springer Nature.

Initially, the "Julius Springer Publishing House" chiefly published political caricatures and treatises reflecting the spirit of Germany's Vormärz period, but it also increasingly specialized in literature from the natural sciences and engineering. In 1904, the publishing house began to expand its publications in the field of medicine. Among the numerous renowned Springer authors are names such as Werner von Siemens, Rudolf Diesel, Albert Einstein, Paul Ehrlich, Emil Fischer and Ferdinand Graf Zeppelin.

After the Second World War, Ferdinand Springer founded a further office for medical and natural science publishing in Heidelberg. In the 1960s Springer began to expand internationally. In 1964, the first office was opened in the USA, in the Flatiron Building in New York. Further offices were opened in London (1973), in Tokyo (1983), in Paris (1985) and in Hong Kong (1986).

Springer revolutionised the publishing business in the 1990s with its innovative ideas and concepts. In the summer of 1996, it set another milestone in the long company history and steered the course for the future. As one of the pioneers of digitalization, Springer presented the online platform LINK (today SpringerLink) which allows scientific publications to be purchased and read online.

The characteristic company logo remains the knight chess piece, which was chosen by the Springer family in 1881. The logo symbolizes the company founder's (Julius Springer and his sons) passion for chess. Today, Springer publications are clearly marked with this logo as the company's brand.

Springer has been part of the publishing group Springer Nature since 2015. Worldwide, Springer Nature has around 13,000 employees and a turnover of 1,624.7 million Euro in 2016. Springer publishes annually around 12,000 new books and around 3000 academic journals. Including the Springer Book Archives, over 110,000 titles dating back to the 19th century are available on SpringerLink.

US The European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation implements Elsevier’s MACRO platform to upgrade patient registry - 11 May 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced that The European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), a non-profit organisation established to fight life-threatening blood cancers and diseases, will implement Elsevier's MACRO platform to support its vital and long-standing patient registry.

The EBMT identified a need to evolve its registry to ensure that it is fit for the current treatment and patient landscape, while also supporting the introduction of new treatment technologies, along with subsequent technical, legal and medical requirements.

This registry update, named Project 2020, will result in a platform that is more intuitive and user-friendly, is truly collaborative and increases efficiency of data collection and retrieval, resulting in increased scope and quality of the data available.

Elsevier's MACRO is a powerful, industry-standard electronic data capture solution that has been proven in commercial and not-for-profit clinical research since 1999. MACRO's dynamic and easy to use tools for study definition, data capture and data management simplify set-up, reduce time to first data entry and to database lock, and help researchers succeed every time in increasingly complex clinical trials. MACRO is used by pharmaceutical companies, academic medical centres, CROs and medical device companies.

Project 2020 is a priority for the continued success of EBMT. The flexibility of MACRO, along with its user-focused interface and in-built data management and quality control processes, ensures that the updated registry will continue to drive high-level research and education.

Italy International Accord strengthens ties between repository networks worldwide - 11 May 2017

Several regional and national repository networks and stakeholder groups have formally endorsed an international accord that will lead to the greater alignment of repository networks around the world. The aim of the accord is to improve cooperation between national and regional repository networks by identifying common principles and areas of collaboration that will lead to the development of global services.

Repositories play a fundamental and expanding role in supporting open access and open science, and there are thousands of repositories deployed worldwide that provide access to research articles, data and other types of content. Increasingly, these repositories are connected through regional and national repository networks that define standards for their communities and offer valuable services on top of repository content. However, given the international nature of research, it is critical that these repository networks work together to ensure they are interoperable, while also supporting the unique needs of their local communities.

The international accord, developed by COAR, the Confederation of Open Access Repositories, will foster closer relationships between the regional networks and act as a framework for undertaking specific activities including metadata exchange across networks, the adoption of common standards and APIs, and implementation of common functionalities. The accord was signed by network representatives from Australasia, Canada, China, Europe, Latin America, Japan, South Africa and the United States.

In the coming weeks, COAR, along with the signatories, will work to define the various levels of collaboration, with the eventual aim of positioning repositories as the foundation of a global knowledge commons.

The accord is available online at: https://www.coar-repositories.org/activities/advocacy-leadership/aligning-repository-networks-across-regions/.

US OpenCon 2017 scheduled for November 11-13 in Berlin, Germany; applications open June 27 - 11 May 2017

SPARC and the Right to Research Coalition, in partnership with the Max Planck Society, have announced that OpenCon 2017 will take place on November 11-13 in Berlin, Germany, at the Max Planck Society's Harnack House.

OpenCon is more than a conference. It is a platform for the next generation to learn about Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data, develop critical skills, and catalyse action toward a more open system for sharing the world's information—from scholarly and scientific research, to educational materials, to digital research data. OpenCon 2017 is at the center of a growing community of thousands of students and early career academic professionals from across the world working to create an open system for research and education.

OpenCon brings together the most energetic, engaged students and early career academic professionals—regardless of their ability to cover travel costs. Because of this, attendance at OpenCon is by application only, and the majority of past participants have received travel scholarships.

OpenCon 2017's three-day program will begin with two days of keynotes, panels, and interactive workshops. OpenCon places an emphasis on highlighting diverse, early career voices, while complementing them with leading experts, such as Jimmy Wales (Co-founder of Wikipedia), Amy Rosenbaum (Director of Legislative Affairs to US President Barack Obama), and Julia Reda (Member of the European Parliament). The third day will feature an all-day "do-a-thon," where participants have the opportunity to craft new campaigns, lay the foundations for new resources, and form collaborations that will continue long after the November conference is over.

Organised by the Right to Research Coalition and SPARC, OpenCon 2017 builds on the success of the first three OpenCon conferences, which collectively convened approximately 500 participants from 80 countries. In addition, OpenCon's unique structure has supported 70 satellite events, enabling over 4,100 attendees across 32 countries to participate in an in-person OpenCon event. Throughout the year, hundreds of these individuals remain engaged through monthly community calls, regular webcasts, and a very active community discussion list. To learn more about OpenCon's theory of change and the impact of the OpenCon community, click here to download the newly released OpenCon Community Report.

Applications to attend OpenCon 2017 in Berlin, Germany, will open on June 27th. For more information about the conference and to sign up for updates, visit www.opencon2017.org/updates.

US Ex Libris launches new release of the Ex Libris Summon discovery service - 11 May 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has launched a new release of the Ex Libris Summon® discovery service to help libraries further address researcher and student needs and streamline operations. The release includes integration with the Ex Libris bX® Recommender service and ProQuest Syndetics Unbound catalogue enrichment service, as well as an enhanced integration with the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform. Summon customers will now benefit from improved discoverability of open-access content and will leverage additional features to help guide patrons on their research journey.

Libraries can now increase serendipitous discovery by embedding the bX Recommender service, which provides automated suggestions of relevant scholarly articles. The suggestions are based on anonymous usage patterns from millions of patrons around the world. The integration of Summon with Syndetics Unbound enables libraries to enrich records with title recommendations, author information, look-inside-the-book views, series information, professional reviews, reader reviews, and much more, to maximise the value of library collections and help researchers discover more about relevant resources.

Another significant aspect of this Summon release is the enhanced integration with the Alma library services platform. Libraries using Summon and Alma can now experience a more efficient way of managing all their resources while maintaining the discovery experience that they are used to. The tight connection between Summon and Alma also enables customers to streamline rights management, publish catalogue data, and display a new patron services page in Summon.

The Ex Libris commitment to the discoverability of open-access materials remains strong. Open-access content indicators are now embedded within Summon search results, and filtering capabilities in the Summon user interface and advanced search page have been added. Documentation on the open-access content that is discoverable in Summon is also available.

The open-access enhancements, as well as the integration with Alma, the bX Recommender service, and the Syndetics Unbound service, are available whether customers use the standard Summon interface or the Summon API.
