UK The University of Kent chooses Kudos to broaden reach of its research outputs - 16 May 2018

Kudos, the award-winning service for maximising the reach and impact of research publications, has announced that the University of Kent is the latest institution to sign up for its dissemination management services. The University's Office for Scholarly Communication, which works closely with the institution's Research Services and Information Services, selected Kudos to help deliver on its objectives for broadening the reach of Kent's research outputs.

The Office for Scholarly Communication aims to help researchers communicate their research to their desired audience in the most effective way, including discovering new dissemination routes, embedding communication from research idea to publication and ensuring that all researchers are aware of, and supported in, the most appropriate routes for dissemination. Kudos offers valuable insight on how effective a method of communication for a particular article, showing where the most return for effort is, freeing up research time. It also gives the data to analyse trends, to enable to work with researchers to create manageable dissemination plans. Kudos also provides a platform for a lay summary and author perspective to sit alongside the research output - giving context and insight for the non-specialist reader.

By channelling researchers' communications about their work through a central system, and mapping these actions against a range of metrics, Kudos provides institutions with deep, actionable insight into the most effective ways to accelerate research impact. Its reports and tools uniquely enable institutions to understand, amplify and support researchers' efforts to improve the performance of their work. The system currently has over 225,000 users across more than 10,000 institutions, and is growing by approximately 1,500 users per week.

UK New F1000Research gateway to maximise 3Rs impact of NC3Rs-funded research - 16 May 2018

The recently launched NC3Rs Gateway is a new publication portal on the F1000Research publication platform dedicated to the 3Rs - replacement, refinement and reduction of animals in research, featuring methodology articles, reviews and source data. All articles will be published almost immediately and then undergo invited open peer review.

The NC3Rs has previously described a 3Rs 'valley of death' between the development of new 3Rs technologies and approaches and their subsequent uptake into practice. This lag is influenced by a range of factors including a lack of information in the published literature on 3Rs approaches such that awareness of their utility can be poor.

The collaboration with F1000Research and its open and rapid publication model, is part of the NC3Rs strategy to tackle the 'valley of death' for the research it funds. This is by ensuring that the outputs of its investment in 3Rs R&D are not only widely available but that they contain sufficient technical detail to enable others in the scientific community to make an informed decision as to whether the new models and tools are appropriate for their purposes. To ensure that the scientific literature is complete, the NC3Rs will be working closely with their grant holders to identify gaps in information that could be filled by publishing in the NC3Rs portal.

The NC3Rs is the UK's major funder of 3Rs research, committing around £8 million each year in grants and early career awards. The portal (one of F1000Research's Gateways) will ensure that its grant holders have an opportunity to publish the full extent of their work, avoiding publication bias. The primary focus will be on providing a format where NC3Rs grant holders can describe the method development, its performance characteristics and steps taken to validate it as well as a full exposition of the 3Rs impacts. This information is relevant to a wide range of stakeholders including scientific peers and collaborators as well as ethics committees and regulators who are charged with ensuring the 3Rs are put into practice.

US DeepDyve unveils researcher workflow tools for scientific and scholarly research - 16 May 2018

DeepDyve has unveiled a new suite of researcher workflow tools designed to streamline the scholarly literature search and curation process. These tools are freely available as part of the DeepDyve Freelancer plan, and also included in DeepDyve Pro, the subscription-based online rental service for scientific and scholarly research.

While DeepDyve Pro is designed for researchers in small to mid-sized organisations who do not have institutional access to peer-reviewed content, DeepDyve Freelancer is suitable for any researcher who routinely uses PubMed and Google Scholar. With this launch, these powerful new tools are immediately available to DeepDyve's 1.5 million registered users.

Based on surveys and interviews, DeepDyve found that nearly all of its users followed a similar process in how they conducted the initial phases of their research - run searches, save results, read and filter articles, repeat. However, these same researchers were frustrated by the lack of tools to organise this critical and time-consuming process, often relying on a patchwork of applications from MS Word to Notepad to simply keeping open dozens of browser tabs. With its latest offering, DeepDyve delivers a service to centrally initiate and manage the literature search and curation process.

DeepDyve also released the latest version of its proprietary browser plugin that integrates Google Scholar and PubMed activity with a user's DeepDyve account. Searches conducted at those sites are automatically saved in My Library, and users can add any Google Scholar or PubMed article result to a DeepDyve List for future reference.
