UK Norway’s UNIT selects Web of Science Data to power National Bibliometrics database - 19 Mar 2019

Norway’s UNIT (the Directorate for ICT and joint services in higher education and research), working on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Research, has chosen the Web of Science Group as its sole data provider for a new national research evaluation project.

The Web of Science Group, a Clarivate Analytics company, will deliver a new National Infrastructure for Bibliometrics, comprised of bibliometric data from worldwide scientific publications prepared specifically for research, analysis and reporting. The National Infrastructure for Bibliometrics will help Norway further develop its competencies in bibliometrics, allowing academics, institutions and research funders to more easily understand and compare domestic and international research.

The Nordic Institute for Studies of Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU) will be the first research institution to benefit from The National Infrastructure for Bibliometrics. The data will be used in NIFU's work for the Research Council.

UK Emerald Publishing announces July 2019 launch of a completely new Emerald Insight digital research platform - 19 Mar 2019

In July 2019, Emerald Publishing will launch a completely new Emerald Insight digital research platform. Developed in collaboration with twelve leading international universities, it is designed to make social sciences research easy and enjoyable to discover.

Emerald Insight – the home of over 300 journals, 3,000 books, 1,700 case studies and a growing collection of open access content – has been entirely reimagined and rebuilt. The forward-thinking design offers an engaging and rewarding user experience; showcasing researchers’ work, paving the way for rapid evolution and meeting future research needs.

Emerald's internal developers have partnered with software development consultancy 67 Bricks to create this new platform. The teams work together with a wide range of users, following an Agile process, to create prototypes and understand how features are used, and will continue with this methodology to implement new tools and services in the future. The new platform represents a significant investment by Emerald, at no additional cost to customers, to provide the best environment for the showcasing and discovery of impactful social science research.

Migration to the new platform will happen by July 2019, with the current site (hosted on Atypon's Literatum platform) closing by the end of August 2019. Existing Emerald Insight users will be supported through the transition process, enabling them to gain seamless access to the new platform.

UK Digital Science to provide Dimensions access to users at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology - 19 Mar 2019

Research technology company Digital Science and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) have announced an agreement that will provide Dimensions access to users across the institution. Dimensions is a linked-research data platform that provides access to more than 140 million contextualised and integrated research outputs and enables researchers at the university to discover their connections for the most complete view of the research landscape.

Developed in partnership with over 100 leading research organisations around the world, including Skoltech, Dimensions enables users to explore over 99 million publications, $1.3tn of grants, 450,000 clinical trials, 38 million patents, 380,000 policy documents, and their associated metrics. Powerful search, visualisations and reporting functionality make it easy to track research and funding trends, compare performance and research outcomes, and inform strategic planning.

With the Dimensions implementation, Skoltech will be able to utilise the data for collection analysis to optimise journal subscriptions, evaluate and support grant application development and dive deeper into the data to reveal current academic collaborations and find opportunities for new ones.

According to Professor Maxim Fedorov, Director of the Centre for Computational and Data-Intensive Science and Engineering (CDISE), Skoltech, adopting Dimensions integrates well with their advanced research and educational practices, with particular emphasis on applications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analysis and high-performance computing in entrepreneurship and innovation. The ability to connect the publication data with other valuable content types such as the funding and patent landscapes will support evidence for the researcher’s impact and future grant eligibility. It also helps them to shape their research and innovation strategies.

Canada CARL and CRKN join SCOSS to facilitate Canadian support of international open infrastructure - 19 Mar 2019

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Canadian Knowledge Research Network (CRKN) are collaborating to facilitate Canadian support of international open infrastructure through the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS). Under this initiative, Canadian institutions will contribute toward the sustainability of selected key international services in the open scholarship ecosystem.

SCOSS aims to help sustain essential open scholarship infrastructure. In doing so, SCOSS brings together a community of experts to evaluate critical open science services that lack sustainable financing, and then encourages institutions worldwide to financially support the services that it recommends.

Through the collaboration between CARL and CRKN, Canadian institutions will have the option of supporting SCOSS-endorsed services collectively. Benefiting from CRKN’s national infrastructure, CARL and CRKN members can contribute at reduced rates. This increases efficiency, reduces administrative overhead, and has the potential to increase Canadian participation.

The SCOSS Board (which includes CARL representation) has completed an evaluation of its pilot phase, which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in community funding for two essential open access services - Sherpa/RoMEO and DOAJ. Many Canadian institutions have pledged support through SCOSS or by continuing to support DOAJ via existing institutional memberships. CARL and CRKN encourage more institutions to participate in this ongoing pilot, as well as in the next round of pledges for additional services that will launch in coming months.

CARL members include Canada’s twenty-nine largest university libraries as well as two national libraries. Enhancing research and higher education are at the heart of its mission. CARL develops the capacity to support this mission, promotes effective and sustainable scholarly communication, and public policy that enables broad access to scholarly information.

The Canadian Research Knowledge Network is a partnership of Canadian universities, dedicated to expanding digital content for the academic research and teaching enterprise in Canada. Through the coordinated leadership of librarians, researchers, administrators and other stakeholders in the research community, CRKN undertakes large-scale content acquisition and licensing initiatives in order to build knowledge infrastructure and research and teaching capacity in Canada’s universities.
