US Wiley and WFSJ partner to deliver science research and training to journalists - 08 Dec 2017

Publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc. and the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) have announced a new partnership that provides access to scientific evidence to 57 member associations representing 10,000 journalists from around the world. The partnership provides journalists with access to the full collection of journals published on Wiley Online Library, on behalf of societies such as the American Cancer Society, the American Geophysical Union, Cochrane, and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). A new series of science training webinars hosted by The Wiley Network and WFSJ will be introduced in 2018.

Wiley Online Library hosts the world's broadest and deepest multidisciplinary collection of online resources covering life, health and physical sciences, social science, and the humanities. It delivers integrated access to more than 6 million articles from more than 1,500 journals, which include some of the top titles in their respective fields.

Cochrane, an independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health, produces the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews which contains more than 10,000 systematic reviews and protocols. CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians is ranked number one in oncology and Cancer is one of the most pre-eminent peer-reviewed titles in the field. The Journal of Geophysical Research, organised into seven disciplinary sections-most with impact factors of 3.0 or more, covers scientific research on the physical, chemical, and biological processes that contribute to the understanding of the Earth, Sun, and solar system and all of their environments and components. Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers one of the foremost international journals of geographical research; and Reviews in Aquaculture, with an impact factor of 4.769 publishes peer-reviewed articles in aquaculture techniques, policies and planning.

Journalists must be active in one of the WFSJ member associations to access studies on Wiley Online Library. Representatives from Member Associations will provide access details to their members who request this benefit.

In 2018, WFSJ members will have access to a series of training webinars that look to increase journalists' understanding of best practices in scientific research. The series will also tackle some of the important global challenges, including extreme weather conditions, antimicrobial resistance, and access to food and water. The webinars will be led by some of the leading science experts with the goal of enhancing communication between researchers and journalists.

US North American academic libraries struggle to meet demand for non-English language content, says new report - 08 Dec 2017

Academic libraries are struggling to meet a rising demand for non-English language content, according to new survey results published by ProQuest. Rising international student enrolments and the popularity of programs that use foreign language content are increasing the importance of foreign language materials in library collections, yet more than a third of respondents say they are falling short in making these resources available to students, faculty and researchers.

ProQuest surveyed more than 177 academic librarians in North America to assess trends in non-English language collection development. Among the survey's findings: budget and expertise are common hurdles North American libraries face in meeting users' needs for non-English language content. Libraries struggle to justify the expense of content that will be used by a small number of users and unless they have the relevant language skills, they find it challenging to select materials that address researchers' needs.

According to the report, the greatest unmet content needs are in Chinese, Arabic and Spanish languages. Technological shortfalls hinder users' access to non-English language materials. Librarians commented that researchers struggle with 'unreliable formats and downloads' as well as the lack of 'language interface to do searches.' Content can be 'lost in a sea of English, on English-only platforms, with English-only licensing agreements.' Diverse non-English language content types are in demand, including newspapers, video, journals and ebooks.

Among the top digital formats, 31% of libraries would like to offer non-English language frontlist ebooks, but currently do not. Comparatively, only 25% of libraries currently offer non-English language frontlist ebooks.

Switzerland Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution launches new section - Coevolution - 08 Dec 2017

Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution has launched a new speciality section on Coevolution.

The section is led by Prof. Monica Medina from Pennsylvania State University and Prof. Elizabeth Arnold from the University of Arizona.

The Coevolution section provides a unique platform to address the processes, mechanisms, importance, and outcomes of coevolution in the broad sense, speaking to the wide range of dynamics encompassed by coevolutionary biology.

By drawing on concepts and insights from ecology, phylogenetic biology, systematics, cell and developmental biology, genomics, informatics and related disciplines, it will publish papers that report rigorous empirical or theoretical studies that focus on coevolution, including the evolution of symbiosis, host-parasite interactions, mutualism, co-speciation, and the co-evolutionary dynamics of mating systems, communication, diffuse coevolution, and molecular responses to organismal interactions.
