Egypt Elsevier and Egyptian Knowledge Bank sign national license agreement for access to SciVal - 01 Jun 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has signed a national license agreement with the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) for access to SciVal, Elsevier's research management tool. The EKB now has quick, easy access to research data analytics of 9,400 research institutions located in 230 nations worldwide.

SciVal is a ready-to-use solution with unparalleled power and flexibility, enabling research institutions and government leaders to visualise research performance, benchmark relative to peers, develop collaborative partnerships and analyse research trends. Elsevier's analytic solution runs primarily on data from Scopus, the abstract and citation database of research information globally, covering more than 70 million articles, books and conference papers, and draws its content from more than 5,000 publishers covering 23,000 journals.

The inclusion of SciVal to the existing full-text content license agreement with EKB will help the ongoing Egyptian efforts to raise the quality of the higher education and better improve its impact on the society and on the country's performance in different fields. It will play an essential role in research strategy planning on the level of departments, institutions, and also on a country level.

UK Oxford University Press joins Coalition for Responsible Sharing - 01 Jun 2018

Academic publisher Oxford University Press has joined the Coalition for Responsible Sharing, an alliance of publishers and learned societies who are taking action against copyright infringement by ResearchGate. The Coalition for Responsible Sharing aims to prevent the illicit hosting of millions of subscription articles on the commercial ResearchGate site and offer alternative, sustainable solutions to help the research community share their published material online in useful and appropriate ways.

In joining the Coalition, OUP will serve legal takedown notices to ResearchGate for content that infringes its copyright licenses.

OUP is a strong proponent of broadening access to the research they publish in a sustainable manner and they do not take this action lightly. For the last two years, they have been working with other publishers through the STM Association in an attempt to find cooperative ways to work with scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs), including ResearchGate. Unfortunately, these attempts have, in this instance, been unsuccessful.

As a department of the University of Oxford, everything they publish underpins their mission: to support Oxford University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education. As a press, they take pride in this mission, which allows to enable, support, and facilitate research and scholarship. They believe that publishers and SCNs can and should co-exist to the benefit of the research community, with each respecting the other's contribution to scholarly communications and will continue to work with researchers, SCNs, librarians, and others to improve access to journal articles in line with the rights of their authors and publishers and the interests of the entire research community.

US EBSCO Information Services and ALZAD Inc. expand partnership to support its libraries using FOLIO Library Services Platform - 01 Jun 2018

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and ALZAD Inc. have expanded their partnership to ensure libraries adopting the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP) will be able to rely on hosting and services support.

The agreement confirms ALZAD's commitment to provide FOLIO implementation and support services backed by EBSCO hosting technology and data services. ALZAD Inc., located in Dubai, UAE and Cairo, Egypt and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia supports many institutions throughout the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region.

ALZAD Inc. team will work with EBSCO in supporting libraries across the region using FOLIO as their library services platform or looking to add FOLIO microservices or apps to their current systems.

Since being announced in June 2016, FOLIO has formed a community, and librarians and developers have joined special interest groups that are actively creating an open source LSP that supports traditional resource management functionality that can be extended into emerging areas. FOLIO is being designed to be flexible to allow librarians to select the applications that best align with their workflow needs. The applications are modular and allow multiple vendors or libraries to contribute applications. Extensibility is an essential element allowing FOLIO to integrate with internal and external systems including university enterprise systems, institutional repositories, research management and discovery services. Development supports Linked Open Data to allow libraries to expand their reach, and FOLIO provides scalability through multi-tenancy. The service will support all formats natively and is based on a central knowledgebase.

Switzerland Frontiers and the National Library of Sweden sign Open Access Framework Agreement - 01 Jun 2018

Under the national agreement signed between Frontiers and the National Library of Sweden (NLS), on behalf of the organisations participating in the Bibsam Consortium, Swedish researchers can now publish their articles in Frontiers' open access journals through a simplified process that covers publishing fees.

The Open Access Framework Agreement underscores the commitment of the Swedish research community to make research freely available in an unrestricted manner to researchers, students and all citizens worldwide. In addition to a centralised invoicing process that covers the publishing fees (article processing charges), researchers at participating organisations benefit from a discount.

This is the first Nordic agreement of its kind and follows the Austrian Open Access framework publishing agreement between Frontiers, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the University of Vienna in late 2017.

The Agreement is open to all participating organisations of the Bibsam Consortium, which includes universities, university colleges and government-funded research institutions. Twenty organisations have already joined, including leading universities. All new participating organisations will benefit from the same terms and conditions, regardless of size or research output. The full Agreement terms will be made public shortly.

The NLS has been working since 2006 on a transition to Open Access research publications. These efforts increased in 2017, after the Swedish government directed the NLS to act as a national coordinating body for shifting all research outputs to immediate Open Access by 2026.

The Agreement is for 3.5 years, starting July 1, 2018. Researchers submitting an article under the agreement will have full access to Frontiers' Open Science tools, including a collaborative peer-review, article and author impact metrics, and enhanced dissemination tools on Loop. All submitted articles will remain subject to Frontiers’ editorial processes, policies and conditions including rigorous peer-review.

The participating organisations under the agreement include: Chalmers University of Technology; Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College; Halmstad University; Karlstad University; Karolinska Institute; Kristianstad University; Linköping University; Linnaeus University; Luleå University of Technology; Lund University; Malmö University; Örebro University; Stockholm University; Swedish Radiation Safety Authority; Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences; Umeå University; University of Gävle; University of Gothenburg; University West; and Uppsala University.

As of 1 June 2018, Frontiers has 103 institutional membership plans in place with university libraries, consortia and funders.
