US SPIE and Chinese Laser Press partner to launch new OA journal - Advanced Photonics - 01 Mar 2018

SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and Chinese Laser Press (CLP), sponsored by Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics and the Chinese Optical Society, have entered into a partnership for a new journal, Advanced Photonics. This will be a highly selective, open access, international journal, publishing innovative fundamental and applied research in optics, photonics, and related fields.

Advanced Photonics will feature top-quality original papers, letters, and review articles, reflecting significant advances and breakthroughs in theoretical and experimental research, and promising novel applications. The journal will include news and commentaries covering scientific and technological discoveries, breakthroughs, and achievements.

Anatoly Zayats, Professor of Experimental Physics and Head, Photonics and Nanotechnology Group, at King's College London, UK, and Yuan Xiao-Cong (Larry), Changjiang Scholar Professor and Director of the Nanophotonics Research Center, at Shenzhen University, China, are Co-Editors-in-Chief. Both are distinguished researchers and SPIE Fellows.

Advanced Photonics seeks high-quality, high-impact articles across the entire spectrum of optics, photonics, and related fields with emphasis on new concepts in terms of fundamental research with great impact and significance; state-of-the-art technologies in terms of novel methods for important applications; and reviews of recent major advances and discoveries and state-of-the-art benchmarking. Researchers may submit manuscripts beginning in spring 2018.

SPIE will publish Advanced Photonics on the SPIE Digital Library, beginning with Volume 1, Issue 1 in January 2019. Articles will be posted as they are reviewed, accepted, copyedited, and typeset, starting in late 2018. The journal will also be available on CLP's China Optical Journal Network. All articles will be open access (CC BY) with the article publication charge (APC) waived in the first year.

Switzerland Frontiers and the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria announce open access publishing agreement - 01 Mar 2018

Frontiers and the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria have formed an open access publishing agreement.

Under the terms of the Austria Open Access Publishing Framework Agreement, the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria (FH Oberösterreich / FH OÖ) will cover article processing charges for eligible authors in any of the Frontiers journals. Eligible authors are corresponding authors of a given article who meet the funding criteria of the FH OÖ.

If the author(s) are members of a FWF-funded project, the FWF may cover the APCs. In addition to a national discount and centralized invoicing process, the Austrian signatory institutions will benefit from a transparent and comprehensive reporting on expenditures and research outputs at an institutional and a national level.

UK SPARC Europe and Digital Curation Centre release an update to its analysis of Open Data policies in Europe - 01 Mar 2018

Open Data policy development in Europe is constantly evolving. In an effort to stay abreast of these changes on behalf of the community, SPARC Europe, together with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), recently released an update to its analysis of Open Data policies in Europe.

The report was first released in May 2017. This latest version has been updated to reflect Open Data policy changes that have surfaced between June and November 2017, and encompasses the 28 EU member states as well as several non-EU members of the European Research Area, such as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.

New activity around national approaches to open data and open science has been identified in several countries, notably the Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia and Sweden.

Among other key findings 11 of 28 EU member states have national, research-data related policies in place. The majority of these policies are owned by - or heavily involved - national research funders, and thus, generally focus on expectations for grant recipients. The policies generally took effect between 2009 and 2017 - with a clear upswing in activity during recent years.

The full report is available for download at https://sparceurope.org/download/2285/.

US Journal of Emergency Medical Services partners with Take Heart America as official media partner - 01 Mar 2018

The Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS) and Take Heart America (THA) have announced the extension of their strategic partnership and collaboration specifically for JEMS to serve as the official and exclusive media partner of the inaugural THA's State of the Future of Resuscitation Conference. The conference is scheduled for September 28-29, 2018 in Oakland, California, where experts from around the world will discuss a wide range of topics related to advances in resuscitation science and clinical practice.

The State of the Future of Resuscitation Conference will be an international collaboration with JEMS, Alameda County, California, Dutch Resuscitation Council, Consortium of Metropolitan EMS Medical Directors (the Eagles), French Resuscitation Council and Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium. At the conclusion of the September conference, the speakers will draft a Task Force Report based upon a summary of the lecture content and panel discussions to be used today and in the future to optimise outcomes after cardiac arrest. The Task Force Report will be published in the December issue of JEMS.

JEMS will serve as THA's exclusive media partner and support the vital work and experience that Take Heart America and their State of the Future of Resuscitation Conference will deliver. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for some of the world's leaders on CPR to provide scientific updates on the most current and future anticipated advances in the field and on the state-of-the future of resuscitation.

The Journal of Emergency Medical Services seeks to improve patient care in the prehospital setting and promote positive change in EMS by delivering information and education from industry leaders, change makers and emerging voices. With a rich tradition of editorial excellence and an unparalleled consortium of subject matter experts and state-of-the-science content, JEMS fulfills its commitment to EMS providers, instructors and administrators through all media channels including online and print.

UK HRB Open Research launches with its first articles - 01 Mar 2018

HRB Open Research, a dedicated platform for grantees of Ireland's Health Research Board (HRB), has launched with the publication of eight articles. All articles are freely available having been published using an immediate publication open access model, and will now undergo invited transparent peer review, post-publication. The first publications cover a range of article types from traditional research articles to study protocols and an open letter, and include a broad set of topics from public-patient involvement in research to cervical screening.

This new platform, controlled by the HRB, follows in the footsteps of other funders such as Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, who have launched their own publication platforms. HRB Open Research will use services developed by F1000, the same as those used on Wellcome Open Research and Gates Open Research.

In publishing on HRB Open Research, grantees of HRB will be able to share any results they think are worth sharing. The publication process used here will speed up the dissemination of results, increase transparency and reduce research waste.

All articles are freely available at https://hrbopenresearch.org/browse.
