UK Springer Nature becomes academic research publisher to join England's Time to Change mental health pledge to support staff wellbeing - 18 Jan 2019

Springer Nature is joining a growing group of more than 1000 employers in England to sign the Time to Change employer pledge to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination. The first academic research publisher to do so, Springer Nature is making a series of commitments which together aim to change the way we all think about and act on mental health in the workplace. Time to Change is a social movement led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Health and funded by the Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund.

As part of its pledge to raise awareness about mental health, Springer Nature will encourage employees to talk about their experiences of mental health issues, provide more information and mental wellbeing and support services, and equip managers with skills to discuss mental health with their staff.

A dedicated group of employees, who have volunteered as wellbeing champions, will guide colleagues to available resources, support and shape the wellbeing agenda for Springer Nature in the UK and play a key role in fostering a positive culture by embedding this role into their working day. All of the 17 wellbeing champions have been trained as mental health first aiders to provide additional support to colleagues. During the coming year, training sessions for line managers will provide them with tools to discuss mental health and resilience with their staff and there will be a campaign to promote a range of support services.

US NISO launches new project, Recommended Practices Around Content Platform Migrations - 18 Jan 2019

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Voting Members have approved a new project, Recommended Practices Around Content Platform Migrations, to provide a standard process and recommendations to all parties dealing with online content platforms, which would improve communication between stakeholders before, during, and after migration. NISO is now forming a working group - community members with experience in aspects of content migration are invited to engage in the creation of this Recommended Practice to better guide publishers, vendors, and libraries.

Librarians have reported over 30 content platform migrations from 2016 to the present. Such migrations are happening more and more often, affecting end-users, librarians, publishers and vendors and a problem-free migration is the exception rather than the norm. The NISO working group, with all stakeholders represented, will benefit from shared experiences and input from the community.

According to Kimberly Steinle, Library Relations Manager at Duke University Press and another proposal co-sponsor, a migration that is well-planned, communicated and coordinated with customers and well-executed will deliver content on a new platform with no broken links or loss of functionality, no interruption of access and no loss of customer information. Migrations can be complex with many things to track, from customer holdings to particularities of EZProxy and other authentication methodologies, to user accounts and security settings. The deliverables from this working group will raise awareness and fill gaps, creating smoother experiences for customers and end users alike.

NISO works to develop standard processes for those responsible for handling and communicating specifics about upcoming platform migrations. Just as NISO developed recommended practices for the handling of transfers of journal titles between publishers, a set of guidelines and checklists for how best to handle content migrations will be of enormous aid to the various stakeholders.

ISO 27001 is an internationally acknowledged management system standard for information security.

A rigorous and thorough audit of a company’s information security management systems and controls must be conducted by third party auditors in order for certification to be granted. CCC received certification with ‘No Non-Conformities,’ the highest standard.

Adherence to ISO 27001 principles enables CCC to protect the important data it handles, by providing secure systems for: Confidentiality; Integrity; and Availability.
