Belgium Feedback on the implementation guidance of Plan S generates large public response - 20 Feb 2019

Over 600 individuals and organisations provided feedback to cOAlition S on the implementation guidance of Plan S. Originating from over 40 countries, respondents providing feedback include researchers, librarians and libraries, publishers and editors, universities, learned societies, research funders and performers, and other interested citizens and organisations.

Responses are now being analysed and will be fed into an updated version of the Plan S implementation guidance. An initial analysis of the feedback will be released in the spring and all feedback responses will be made openly available.

Plan S is an initiative for Open Access publishing that was launched in September 2018. The plan is supported by cOAlition S, an international consortium of research funders. The initiative requires that, from 2020, scientific publications that result from research funded by public grants must be published in compliant Open Access journals or platforms.

US Threats to copyright protections seen as ‘Existential’, reports Simba Information - 20 Feb 2019

Copyright protection and the many ways it is perceived to be under threat were a recurring theme to proceedings at the Association of American Publishers annual Professional and Scholarly Publishing conference on February 7, reports market research firm Simba Information. Simba Information covers issues of copyright and emerging technology in its upcoming reports Global Scientific & Technical Publishing 2019-2023, Global Medical Publishing 2019-2023 and STM Online Services 2019-2023.

Copyright industries, which include book and journal publishing, music, film and entertainment software contributed $1.3 trillion, or about 7%, to the U.S. economy in 2017.

Many individual nations and trade groups around the world are examining their copyright laws. The issues are constantly being debated and negotiated.

While copyright laws and treaties around the world need updating to catch up with the internet and new business models, a whole new generation of technology is set to explode, and those technologies need to have copyright laws that strike the right balance as well.

Jule Sigall, associate general counsel, IP policy and strategy, Microsoft Corp., advocated for copyright laws that will allow the use of copyrighted material as data in a machine learning or artificial intelligence environment.

Such laws would allow AI or machine reading to pull out the unprotected ideas, facts, concepts and embodiments in an image or a work without infringement so that the data can be used to power some other capability.

UK Consortium of Chinese partners select IOP Publishing to publish their new journal - the International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing - 20 Feb 2019

IOP Publishing has been chosen by a consortium of Chinese partners to publish their new journal, the International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing (IJEM).

The new, open access journal will cover the science and technology of manufacturing functional devices and systems with extreme dimensions (extremely large or small) and/or functionalities under extreme conditions or environments.

IJEM is solely owned by the four partners: Institute of Machinery Manufacturing Technology, China Academy of Engineering Physics; Dalian University of Technology, China; Fudan University, China; and Research Center of Laser Fusion, China Academy of Engineering Physics. As a result of funding from this partnership, IJEM will not charge article publication fees, meaning it will be free for authors to publish their research.

Extreme manufacturing is specifically manifested in manufacturing with extremely high energy density; ultrahigh precision; extremely small spatial and temporal scales; extremely intensive fields, and giant systems with extreme complexity and number of factors. It involves multidisciplinary fields, including machinery, materials, optics, physics, chemistry, mechanics, and mathematics.

The journal opens for submissions on February 28, 2019.

US TIB promotes OA transition in the field of electrochemistry - 20 Feb 2019

Since 2018, all the members of the German consortium of The Electrochemical Society (ECS) led by the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) - German National Library of Science and Technology have benefited from a special publishing option: ECS grants all institutions participating in its program an unlimited number of article processing charge (APC) credits. This allows all scientists affiliated with participating institutions to publish open access articles in ECS journals free of charge. By the end of 2018, 52 open access articles from corresponding authors affiliated with a TIB institution were published and are freely accessible. The additional costs for this supplementary benefit come in the form of a small surcharge on the license fee. The TIB is currently bearing these costs in its role as the National Library of Science and Technology. Due to the program's flat-rate pricing and the lack of a cap on the amount of articles that may be published, the added cost of participation is very low - only a fraction of the price of the standard ECS APC ($800 for 2018; $1000 for 2019).

The ECS Plus aims to remove barriers to open access publication for institutions and to help establish open access as the standard for ECS publications. The program helps advance ECS's Free the Science initiative, which aims to make all ECS research free for authors to publish and free for readers to access.

The enormous rate of growth in consortium members in 2018 shows that libraries are very much interested in this licensing model. A total of 28 universities and research institutes decided to participate in 2018. This represents an increase of more than four times over 2017.

According to Irina Sens, Deputy Director of the library, the TIB will not only continue the consortium in 2019, but will also support it financially again.

US NLM and Wellcome complete partnership to provide free access to historically-significant biomedical journals - 20 Feb 2019

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and Wellcome have completed their partnership to make thousands of full back issues of historically-significant biomedical journals freely available through the National Institutes of Health life sciences repository PubMed Central (PMC), and through its European counterpart, Europe PMC.

The NLM and Wellcome reported that over two dozen additional titles are now freely available, spanning three centuries and encompassing hundreds of thousands of pages. In total, the collaboration has grown PMC by over 650,000 pages and tens of thousands of individual articles.

The newly-available titles are free to read, download, text mine, and re-use via the PMC Text Mining Collections, which includes the PMC Open Access Subset and the Historical OCR Collection.

Researchers, educators, and students will benefit from this vast corpus of historical biomedical information for generations to come. The collaboration to make these titles and others publicly available stems from a 2014 memorandum of understanding (MOU) to work together in this important way for the benefit of research and education. This 2014 partnership builds on the Medical Journal Backfiles Digitization Project of 2004-2010 and contributes to the current PMC archive of over 5.3 million articles from medical journals.
