US McGraw-Hill implements HighWire’s latest hosting and access management technology - 16 Aug 2019

Scholarly publishing tech provider HighWire has announced that McGraw-Hill has implemented HighWire’s latest hosting and access management technology.

McGraw-Hill’s AccessEngineering is a flagship engineering resource for students, faculty and professionals and has used HighWire solutions since 2011. The site offers 700 books plus a mix of other non-standard content such as videos, spreadsheets and tutorials, which HighWire is perfectly placed to handle.

Scolaris, part of the HighWire Hosting solution, is an award-winning integrated content platform that will enable McGraw-Hill to easily publish multiple content types on a single site. The hosting upgrade provides McGraw-Hill with a modern user experience thanks to new software, new features and a new design.

HighWire Identity, delivered via SAMS Sigma, provides McGraw-Hill’s site users with a single sign-on to access scholarly content. It enables the publisher to identify each user and delivers a simple, flexible and scalable way to license content and control access.

HighWire was trusted to deal with very complex taxonomies, which McGraw-Hill believed to be the best mechanism for providing its users an excellent search and discovery experience and aiding the research process by enabling users to rapidly zero in on the most relevant information.

AccessEngineering has five taxonomies built into it (subjects, industries, courses, equations, and codes & standards), along with a personal curation layer designed to tailor results specifically to the end-user.

Furthermore, the HighWire solution integrates with Hypothesis to enable annotations, as well as CASA (Campus Activated Subscriber Access).

HighWire worked with Google Scholar to develop CASA, which enables seamless off-campus and mobile access to subscribed scholarly content. With CASA, users may access their libraries’ subscriptions just as easily as when they are on campus.

German ScienceOpen and Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers partner to integrate six orthopedics journals in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment - 16 Aug 2019

ScienceOpen and Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers have announced a partnership that integrates six orthopedics journals published by Jaypee in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.

Established in 1969, Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers is South Asia’s largest and fastest growing medical publisher that supports the medical community as an education resource from the undergraduate to practitioner level. ScienceOpen’s partnership with Jaypee puts orthopedics research into a broader scholarly context that facilitates and increases its discoverability.

The new Jaypee ‘Orthopedics’ collection on ScienceOpen features six journals: Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction, The Duke Orthopedic Journal, International Journal of Head and Neck Surgery, Journal of Spinal Surgery, Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery, and Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

ScienceOpen and Jaypee hope that this cooperation will contribute to the scientific and social impact of orthopedics research worldwide. As a featured collection on the research discovery platform ScienceOpen with over 57 million article records, the Jaypee ‘Orthopedics’ is integrated into a global research environment with dynamic sorting and filtering tools. Interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, and comments create a forum for researchers to discuss their findings and start collaborations.

ScienceOpen highlights the new Jaypee ‘Orthopedics’ collection in its research discovery environment as an important step in optimising the scientific and social impact of orthopedics research.

UK Dimensions now available to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology - 16 Aug 2019

Digital Science has announced a collaboration with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology that will provide campus-wide access to the next evolution in linked scholarly information, Dimensions. With the Dimensions implementation, the university will support its researchers and academic management by providing a broader picture of the work they’re doing, a platform to explore the influence of past collaborations and an effective way to measure the real-world impact their research has made.

Dimensions is a dynamic, easy-to-use, linked research data platform that re-imagines the way research can be discovered, accessed, and analysed. Dimensions provides openly-available search and metrics for more than 102 million publications, nearly 5 million awarded grants, 38 million patents, 490 thousand clinical trials, and 430 thousand policy documents.

This partnership will allow researchers at Norwegian University of Science and Technology to access content from across the entire research landscape, enabling them to gain deeper insights into a topic or field. Additionally, the advanced analytical capabilities in Dimensions Analytics make it possible to compare and contrast data from research institutions around the world to map the competitive landscape, explore cross-disciplinary opportunities, and position their research program for the future.

UK Jisc and Sigfox seek partners to show how connecting small things makes a big difference - 16 Aug 2019

WND UK, which operates Sigfox’s low power wide area network (LPWAN) technology in the UK and Latin America, is collaborating with Jisc to enable universities and colleges to run IoT technology on a dedicated network with low set-up costs. WND UK is seeking universities and colleges across the UK to partner with Sigfox by agreeing to install base stations on their campus. It has offered to provide free kit to interested institutions.

Sigfox’s network allows connected devices such as sensors and vehicle equipment to communicate small amounts of data over large distances using tiny amounts of power. Because of their low power consumption, these remote sensors can run for many years on a single battery and are even safer and more secure than standard wireless networks.

IoT enables new, disruptive services and solutions in areas such as asset tracking, the smart environment and smart cities. Some universities already use IoT in libraries and others are exploring how this could be adopted across their estates. The technology would provide a modern experience that responds to student interactions to help make campuses more digitally intuitive - an integral part of Jisc’s education 4.0 vision to transform education through advanced technologies.

Some 90% of the UK’s population and 56% of its area can currently access the Sigfox network through more than 1,800 base stations. Current partners already include a number of universities as well as E.ON, Thames Water and local authorities.

WND UK will provide 100 free Sigfox subscriptions per year, per approved site, for the duration of agreements with universities and colleges. Those interested in taking part should contact WND UK directly to check coverage and make arrangements for installation.

The collaboration follows an agreement earlier this year with The Things Network (TTN), provider of another global network for IoT devices, which allowed its community network server to run on the Janet Network infrastructure.
