UK Springer launches new platform to promote interdisciplinary research - 22 Jun 2018

Springer has launched the Polar Platform, a unique platform dedicated to research in polar sciences. The platform aims at developing a comprehensive collection of books, open access publications, journal articles and reference works published as part of Springer's polar sciences programme. It also features interviews with leading researchers in this field and provides an overview of publication options.

In the continuing scenario of climate change, interest in polar sciences is rapidly expanding. The POLAR2018 conference with more than 2,000 participants attending in Davos this week is testament to the growing importance of research in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. To meet the changing needs of the research community, Springer has significantly expanded its polar sciences programme in the recent years.

The Springer Polar Platform serves as a window into Springer's extensive publications in polar sciences. Launched at the end of 2016, the Springer Polar Science Series publishes multi-disciplinary books dealing with a wide range of topics relevant to the Arctic and Antarctic. The Advances in Polar Ecology Series aims to foster the progress in the scientific knowledge about the polar and sub-polar regions of both hemispheres. In 2017, Springer also published its first open access book in this field, The Interconnected Arctic — UArctic Congress 2016, which had almost 43,000 downloads in one year.

UK Royal Society of Chemistry renews partnership with Kudos - 22 Jun 2018

Kudos, the award-winning service for managing dissemination of research publications, has announced a partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry, which publishes 44 journals across both core chemical sciences and related fields such as biology, biophysics, energy and environment, engineering, materials, medicine and physics.

According to Charlie Rapple, Sales & Marketing Director and co-founder of Kudos, over 10,000 Royal Society of Chemistry authors are using Kudos to manage dissemination of their research across multiple channels. This partnership with RSC means those authors will benefit from additional amplification and support, thanks to the Society's use of Kudos' tools and intelligence.

Kudos thereby provides researchers, and their publishers and institutions, with a rich understanding of which channels and activities are most effective for broadening reach and impact. Kudos has over 100 publisher, institutional, society and corporate customers around the world. Recent analysis of Kudos data indicates that growth in full text downloads on the publisher site is 23% higher when the Kudos toolkit is used. Kudos won the 2015 ALPSP Award for Innovation in Publishing and has been named in Outsell's 'Ten to Watch' for three consecutive years; Outsell recently assigned a 'positive' rating to Kudos' new shareable PDF, describing it as 'a pragmatic solution to a key industry issue.'

Israel Ex Libris Esploro research services platform now available to all Esploro development partners - 22 Jun 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the Ex Libris Esploro™ research services platform will now be available to all Esploro development partners. The first release of Esploro represents an important phase in the development of a unified research platform that will lead to broader impact of research output, greater productivity, and increased collaboration.

Esploro development partners are already beginning to implement the first release, which supports the deposit and management of several research data types, as well as streamlined metadata handling that enables libraries, research offices, and researchers to work together on research projects.

The data flow and accuracy enabled by Esploro's handling of metadata is crucial for leveraging library expertise, while the research asset management will enable the library to better support academic research.

The Esploro early adopters program is now open for those who wish to be part of the next phase of Esploro development and implementation. Through the program, early adopters will receive preferred business terms and prioritisation of their requested enhancements. Participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback that will help Ex Libris tailor the Esploro solution to the needs of all stakeholders.

Netherland LIBER welcomes library compromises, but TDM exception needs to go further - 22 Jun 2018

The Association of European Research Libraries (LIBER) has consistently fought for copyright reforms which support research and innovation in Europe.

The report adopted by European Parliament's Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) on proposed changes to the Commission's Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive includes draft compromises which are important to libraries in the digital era. LIBER has welcomed the amendments which enable libraries to preserve material in digital networks, mass digitise their in-copyright but commercially unavailable collections and to support digital and cross-border teaching.

On Text and Data Mining (TDM), the association has appreciated the improvements made by the European Parliament on the Commission's original proposal, particularly the inclusion of research libraries as a beneficiary of a mandatory TDM exception. TDM is an issue of major importance to LIBER and its 430 university, national and special libraries.

However, LIBER is disappointed that JURI's proposed TDM exception falls short of granting everyone with legal access to material and the right to analyse that content with computers. This undermines the European Commission's broader efforts to support Open Science and Artificial Intelligence.

UK University of Bristol selects OCLC Sustainable Collection Services to manage collections - 22 Jun 2018

The University of Bristol has selected OCLC Sustainable Collection Services (SCS) to help manage their print monographs as they transform their library space.

Ranked as one of the top 50 universities in the world, the University of Bristol holds approximately 1 million monographs across nine libraries and a Research Reserve. As they develop their strategy for the next five years, the university will reassess their collections and buildings. SCS provides tools and services which will help staff manage, share, archive or remove monographs using data to inform decision making.

As part of the agreement, the university will have access to GreenGlass software, which allows comparison of institutional collections on a regional, national and international basis using WorldCat holdings data.

US Atypon prepares its Literatum and nearly 1000 client websites for GDPR-compliance ahead of deadline - 22 Jun 2018

Atypon's online publishing platform, Literatum, and nearly 1000 websites it hosts became GDPR-compliant well ahead of the European Union's deadline, enabling Atypon customers to meet GDPR requirements. Atypon's implementation also gives publishers control of how most of those requirements are implemented on their sites.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enacted by the European Union to safeguard the personal data of all website users. They significantly enhance the security and privacy protections companies must provide for their customers. The regulations affect EU-based companies as well as companies outside of the European Union who do business, or have customers, within its borders.

As part of the GDPR-compliant platform, Literatum provides publishers with special widgets that enable them to give readers the ability to manage their personal data. Publishers can also control and automate the amount of time they retain reader data.

Atypon has upgraded other Literatum security features to further protect customers' content from misuse. Improved abuse monitoring and notifications, and flexible abuse mitigation strategies such as CAPTCHA, enhance protections against content theft. In addition, customers can refine Literatum's bot-detection capabilities via configurable whitelists and blacklists, ensuring readers who have licenses to the content are able to access it.

A future Atypon GDPR-related system improvement - giving readers the option to download all of the data a publisher has collected about them - is aimed at reducing the help desk requests that publishers receive. In addition, planned systems integration capabilities will enable publishers to automatically sync their GDPR-compliant data, such as opt-outs, with third-party marketing systems.
