India ASM International partners with Scope e-Knowledge Center for content enrichment initiative - 25 Mar 2019

ASM International (ASM), the world’s largest and most established materials information society has chosen Scope e-Knowledge Center (Scope), an SPi Global Company, to transform its digital content.

The comprehensive initiative leverages Scope’s broad offering of enrichment services, including taxonomy/thesaurus development, deep domain indexing, metadata enrichment, abstract creation, and file conversion. The resulting descriptive metadata and content linkages will serve to increase the precision of search as well as overall discoverability of content. Furthermore, Scope’s end-to-end solution enables seamless migration of ASM’s legacy content to its new content hosting platform.

“The overarching intent of this initiative is to increase the value of ASM’s content to our global community of users through new functionality and state of the art user experience,” said Ron Aderhold, ASM Chief Operations Officer & Chief Information Officer. “These, in turn, will drive discovery and usage, support increased sales; and enable new product offerings and content reuse options.”

“We started this collaboration with ASM’s Handbook volumes and we are extremely pleased that the Scope-ASM partnership is now expanding to cover several more additional products in the year 2019,” noted Senthilvel Palanivelu (“Vel”), Head of Smart Content, at Scope. “Scope ensured that each content item had a relevant abstract, was tagged to a consistent thesaurus and met the general publishing standards for well-structured metadata. Scope’s extensive team of in-house subject matter experts (SME’s) and certified expert taxonomists leveraged artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) in an expert-curated environment to ensure an optimized outcome,” added Vel.

“We are proud to be associated with an esteemed organization like ASM International. Over the past decade, Scope has established itself as one of the world’s leading content enrichment companies. Our mission is to enable scholarly societies and publishers to drive discovery and unlock the inherent value of their content,” said M. A. Eswaran, COO of Scope. “With the recent acquisition of Scope by SPi Global, we now have a more compelling end-to-end solution starting from the manuscript stage to the digital publishing stage that encompasses the entire content enrichment value chain.”

German Library consortium and Thieme sign transformation agreement - 25 Mar 2019

The Thieme Group has signed a transformation agreement with ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences, the Forschungszentrum Jülich, and thirteen additional specialist libraries. As part of an initial pilot project, authors at participating institutions will first be given the opportunity to publish original papers in Hormone and Metabolic Research, an international journal published by Thieme, on an open access basis at no extra cost. The license fee paid by libraries to the publisher for access to the journal is increasingly being converted into a publication fee on the basis of the five-year contract. The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding the project as part of the Licences for Digital Content programme, which will potentially also include other titles.

Appropriate business models for open access are currently being discussed in detail and a number of wide-ranging agreements have already been reached. The Thieme Group’s current contract with the fifteen members of the potentially expandable library consortium sets forth the gradual transformation of an existing subscription model to open-access financing.

Under the new business model, ZB MED, the Forschungszentrum Jülich, and the thirteen other specialist libraries pay a fee to access Hormone and Metabolic Research based on a license for reading access and a publication fee to allow open access publishing by authors attached to these institutions. There is no limit on the number of open access publications this could be extended to. Those involved specifically selected the journal as a suitable pilot. The journal covers a very research-intensive field in which German scientists and researchers are known to publish extensively. Around half-way through the term of the contract, the partners will together review their experiences with open access submissions. Step-by-step, the licensing fee will be transformed into a publication fee.

US The MIT Press and The Society for the Neurobiology of Language launch new OA journal - Neurobiology of Language - 25 Mar 2019

The MIT Press and The Society for the Neurobiology of Language have launched a new open access journal, Neurobiology of Language. The journal will publish interdisciplinary articles addressing the neurobiological basis of human speech and language. Steven L. Small, Dean of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, University of Texas at Dallas (Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago and the University of California) and Kate E. Watkins, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, will serve as Editors-in-Chief.

Neurobiology of Language will provide a high-quality outlet for rapid and open dissemination of important findings, and the journal’s modern open science requirements will facilitate the reproducibility of experimental findings. The journal will also publish negative findings and replications using the mechanism of ‘registered reports,’ whereby papers consisting only of an introduction and extensive detailed methods will be reviewed and accepted or rejected prior to the performance of the actual experiment. This practice removes the incentive for positive results and leads to more robust research findings.

The editors invite innovative work that significantly advances the understanding of the biological foundations of perceptual, cognitive, motor, and linguistic processes used to produce and understand language in both children and adults, and in both healthy individuals and those with disorders. Manuscripts that address biological mechanisms or would be of particular value to researchers who are studying the biology are particularly sought. The journal will include articles drawing on a range of methods including, but not limited to, behavioural paradigms, functional and structural neuroanatomy, genetics, extracranial and intracranial brain stimulation and recording, and studies in animal models.

The National Science Foundation and the MIT Libraries are generously supporting some of the costs associated with publishing Neurobiology of Language.

Neurobiology of Language will publish primarily research articles, but also encourages submissions of articles reporting on new methods and data, as well as reviews and perspectives. Neurobiology of Language is an open access publication, and all content will be freely available to readers across the globe.

The editors are now accepting submissions and the inaugural issue of Neurobiology of Language will appear in 2020.

Switzerland Frontiers in Water celebrates World Water Day with launch of five new sections - 25 Mar 2019

In commemoration of World Water Day, Frontiers in Water has officially launched with five sections examining urgent issues affecting water and its supply.

Led by Professor Praveen Kumar, University of Illinois, Frontiers in Water will address Sustainable Development Goal 6 to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. The journal aims to improve how they understand the dynamics and sustainable use of water resources. It aims to drive innovation and inform policy makers of the latest research in this critical area. With the frequency of extreme weather events such as droughts and floods on the rise, answers to fundamental questions raised by these occurrences are to be published in Frontiers in Water.

Five sections are now open for submission, covering a range of issues. These include: Water and Hydrocomplexity - led by Prof. Harrie-Jan Hendricks Franssen, Forschungzentrum Jülich; Water and Built Environment - led by Prof. Auroop Ganguly, Northeastern University; Water Quality - led by Dr. Boris van Breukelen, TU Delft; Water and Critical Zone - led by Prof. Carl Steefel, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; and Water and Human Systems - led by Prof. Mariele Evers, University of Bonn. The first article collections are now open, on Model Data Fusion in Hydrology, and Past, Present, and Future Impacts of Climate on Infrastructure.
