UK Growing international collaboration not yet enough to halt decline in Japanís research output, reports Nature Index 2019 Japan supplement - 21 Mar 2019

The Nature Index 2019 Japan supplement shows that global research performance in Japan continues to fall, but the number of international research partnerships is increasing.

Japanís contribution to high-quality scientific research fell by 19.9 percent between January 2012 and October 2018. But efforts to increase international collaboration, seen as one way to address this trend, are paying off. Since 2014, the proportion of articles from journals tracked by the Index with international co-authors originating from Japanese institutions has increased from 46 to 56 percent.

This supplement discusses the role that international collaboration has in boosting high-quality research output from Japan and also outlines the major changes needed for Japan to become an attractive research destination for international scientists.

An overview article outlines how Japan is seeking to boost its scientific research performance by transforming its universities to better accommodate international collaboration. Then, six scientists with exceptionally strong research links outside Japan describe how they are bringing global research to Japan and taking Japanese research to the world.

Further features in the supplement include an interview with two leading female Japanese researchers who call for more women to seize opportunities to become leaders and principal investigators. Finally, an article on academia-industry partnerships discusses the barriers to getting the two sectors to work more closely together in Japan.

The Nature Index 2019 Japan is based on data from natureindex.com, covering articles published during the period January 1, 2012 to October 31, 2018. All references to the year 2018 in tables and graphs include data for the 12 months preceding October 31.

US All ECS published research available for free during Free the Science Week - 21 Mar 2019

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) has announced its third annual Free the Science Week to be held on April 1-7, 2019. ECS will take down the paywall to its entire online collection of published research. For the duration of the week, the ECS Digital Library, which contains over 151,000 scientific articles and abstracts, will be freely accessible to everyone.

Launched in 2015, the Free the Science initiative is ECSís vision for transformative, industry-wide change in the traditional methods of communicating scholarly research. Based on the fundamental tenet that research should be free for readers to access and free for authors to publish, the initiative represents the Societyís ongoing, community-driven push toward a future that embraces open science.

ECS currently supports open access publishing in its two peer-reviewed journals, the Journal of The Electrochemical Society and the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology, with a discount program for its open access article processing charges.

Through the program, ECS provides article credits to various members of its community - Society members, authors of certain types of articles, and authors affiliated with institutions subscribed to the Societyís read-and-publish subscription package, ECS Plus, which by now boasts a subscription base of over 1,000 institutions.

ECSís support of open access as a publishing option has had a pivotal impact upon Society publishing. Since ECS began offering open access as a publishing option in 2014, over 35 percent of its journal articles have been published open access. Over 90 percent of those articles were published at no cost to authors, thanks to the over $2.1 million in article processing charge credits the Society provided.

In recent months, amid discussions of Plan S, ECSís Free the Science initiative has drawn attention from the key players in the publishing industry.

Interested parties may access ECS research for free during the week in the ECS Digital Library.
