UK Emerald partners with F1000 to launch new open research publishing platform - Emerald Open Research - 19 Jul 2018

Academic publisher Emerald has become the first publisher to partner with the open research service provider F1000, starting Emerald's own open research publishing platform - Emerald Open Research - using the technology, infrastructure and editorial services provided by F1000.

The publishing partnership with F1000 is a natural extension of the Emerald Reach open access programme launched in September 2017, which is designed to deliver rigorous high-quality open access content, support authors and extend their impact.

With this move, Emerald seeks to help researchers make real impact through an open research model, giving authors greater choice, reach and flexibility. Research - which can take the form of a standard research article, case studies or open data notes, and more - will be published rapidly once submitted to Emerald Open Research, which will be operated by F1000.

The platform will use a model of immediate publication followed by transparent invited peer review, complete with full article versioning. Authors are in control of the review process, allowing them to select expert peer reviewers, to respond to comments or questions about their research, and publish revised versions of their articles when and how they wish.

The transparent peer review process is designed to encourage constructive feedback from experts focussed on helping the authors improve their work, rather than on making an editorial decision to accept or reject an article.

Emerald Open Research will be based on interdisciplinary research themes that address crucial real world topics aligned to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. Initial themes will include Sustainable Food Systems, Healthy Lives, Responsible Management, Sustainable Cities, 21st Century Education and the Digital World.

Emerald has been expanding its portfolio of open access content, and now publishes more than 30 fully open access journals, including the recently flipped International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management (IJCCSM). Emerald also offers a range of open access options to book authors and their sponsoring bodies across all formats - monographs, handbooks, short form and professional content.

Emerald Open Research will start accepting submissions at the end of 2018.

US Wolters Kluwer addresses staff onboarding and practice-readiness challenges with innovative orientation curriculum tailored for clinical nurse educators - 19 Jul 2018

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced the launch of a comprehensive collection of evidence-based curriculum assets that help nursing professional development practitioners move their staff quickly through training to productivity by having the ability to rapidly deploy 'need to know' content. Lippincott® Blended Learning is designed to help clinical nurse educators mitigate the pressures created by high turnover rates and associated staffing costs, as well as the growing volume of new nurses entering the workforce or working in educational settings.

With demand for nurses already at its highest point and climbing steadily, clinical educators have been challenged in their efforts to create tailored evidence-based training programs fast enough to meet their facilities' needs. This is compounded by high turnover rates as more than 17 percent of newly-licensed Registered Nurses (RNs) leave their first nursing job within the first year and one-third leave within two years, according to a study by the RN Work Project. The need to dedicate most of their resources on orientation programs to keep pace with demand and turnover in the acute care setting also makes it exceedingly difficult for educators to focus on longer-term knowledge acquisition and continuing education (CE) for their nursing staffs.

Lippincott Blended Learning features a growing library of customisable, online lesson plans and assets including presentations, case studies, exams and checklists that support live instructor-led training. Its flexible platform supports a flipped classroom environment that optimises learning and knowledge retention and is designed to facilitate 'instructional scaffolding' that allows educators to build upon nurses' knowledge and grow their expertise over time.

The Lippincott Blended Learning library is a growing collection of more than 100 lessons on Patient Care Delivery, Quality and Safety, Leadership and Professionalism, and Management, as well as specialty nursing orientation topics covering Medical-Surgical, Critical Care, Perioperative, Obstetrics, and Emergency. As part of the Lippincott® Solutions product suite, Lippincott Blended Learning maps to Lippincott® Procedures, Lippincott® Advisor, and Lippincott® Professional Development Collection, supporting intentional curriculum and reinforcing knowledge retention at all points.

US Oxford University Press to publish two journals of the American Ornithological Society - 19 Jul 2018

Academic publisher Oxford University Press and the American Ornithological Society have announced their new partnership to publish The Auk: Ornithological Advances and The Condor: Ornithological Applications, the society's two peer-reviewed, top-ranked, Journal Citation Reports indexed journals. The Auk and The Condor will serve as OUP's flagship titles in ornithology.

The Auk: Ornithological Advances aims to advance fundamental scientific knowledge by increasing the basic knowledge of bird species, both living and extinct, and the knowledge of broad biological concepts through studies of bird species. The Auk has been published continuously since 1884 and was recently recognised as one of the 100 most influential journals of biology and medicine over the past 100 years. The journal holds an Impact Factor of 2.442, making it the third-ranked journal in the field of ornithology. The Auk holds the highest 5 Year Impact Factor of all ornithology journals, 2.438.

The Condor: Ornithological Applications publishes original research, syntheses, and assessments focusing on the application of scientific theory and methods to the conservation, management, and ecology of birds; and the application of ornithological knowledge to conservation and management policy and other issues of importance to society. The Condor has been published continuously since 1899. The journal holds an Impact Factor of 2.722, making it the top-ranked journal in the field of ornithology.

Canada CRKN Board of Directors reject proposal to charge Francophone and bilingual CRKN member institutions a significantly higher price than Anglophone institutions for a full collection - 19 Jul 2018

Under the direction of its Content Strategy Committee (CSC) and with approval from its Board of Directors, the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) will not be renewing its national license with Cairn, an aggregator of Francophone publications in the social sciences and humanities. This decision comes after Cairn indicated it would not remove its language-based pricing policy where Francophone and bilingual CRKN member institutions are charged a significantly higher price for the full collection than Anglophone institutions. As a national partnership of Canadian universities that include French-language, English-language, and bilingual institutions, CRKN members are not willing to endorse a proposal with differential pricing based on language.

In its last license renewal negotiations with Cairn in 2014, CRKN was not successful in its attempt to come to an equitable pricing model for all CRKN member institutions, regardless of language. Recognising the high-value of the French-language content that Cairn provides to CRKN members, CRKN agreed to a one-year extension in 2017 with the goal of resolving this impasse through negotiating a multi-year agreement. CRKN brought the issue to its Annual General Meeting in 2017 where members agreed that Cairn's language-based pricing was contrary to the shared values of creating fair pricing, regardless of language.

In discussions with Cairn, it was indicated that they would not consider changing the current pricing model for their full package. In consulting with the Francophone CRKN member institutions that are most impacted by Cairn's language-based pricing, CRKN requested guidance from the Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire (BCI) whose library directors' committee unanimously supported a principled stand against language-based pricing. In response to this, Cairn proposed a title-by-title selection option for a subset of the titles currently available in the full collection with pricing based on CRKN's banding system. The details of that proposal were reviewed and discussed by the CSC, however the committee members felt that this did not adequately address the issue of differential, language-based pricing, and therefore, was not acceptable.

UK Portico explores digital preservation landscape in UKSG Insights - 19 Jul 2018

There has been tremendous growth in the amount of digital content created by libraries, publishers, cultural institutions and the general public. While there are great benefits to having content available in digital form, digital objects can be extremely short-lived unless proper attention is paid to preservation.

The rise of interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to research - often integrating text, data, and audio-visual material - has enabled new forms of scholarly output. As scholarly communication becomes increasingly complex, how can we ensure that 'born-digital' artifacts are also 'born-preservable'?

Drawing on years of experience, senior leaders from Portico share their perspective on the digital preservation landscape in an article for UKSG Insights. The paper outlines emerging opportunities, including collaborating with national libraries; engaging new stakeholders such as business, financial, and governmental institutions; developing next generation technology infrastructures; and automating metadata extraction and enrichment through natural language processing and machine learning.
