US Wiley-Blackwell and The Hastings Center announce publishing partnership - 05 Aug 2011

Wiley-Blackwell, the STM and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc., US, has announced a new partnership with The Hastings Center. Under the deal, Wiley-Blackwell will publish the Hastings Center Report, one of the leading journals in the field of bioethics. The partnership aims to broaden the reach of the Hastings Center Report, particularly by expanded access to libraries.

The self-published Report publishes essays, commentary, and scholarly and research articles on ethical and social issues raised by advances in medicine and the life sciences. Recent issues have included two series - one on synthetic biology and one on psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in children - as well as articles on paid organ donation in Pakistan, and paid oocyte donation in the United States. Articles in the Report are frequently cited by the media and generate significant debate on blogs.

The Report will be included in the Wiley-Blackwell Collection, making it available in 3300 libraries globally that do not currently subscribe to the Report. The January/February 2012 issue will be the first in the new partnership.

Electronic distribution of the Report will be provided by Wiley Online Library, an online content delivery platform that will provide new tools for Report readers, such as Early View, which allows access to accepted articles before they have been bound into an issue of the Report, and "Virtual Issues," which collects articles and other content that bear on a subject. Wiley Online Library will also allow the Report to be integrated more closely with Bioethics Forum, the Center's online blog.

US Apple leads smartphone market in 2011 second quarter, says IDC report - 05 Aug 2011

The worldwide mobile phone market grew 65.4 percent year-over-year in the second quarter of 2011 (2Q11), according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. This marks the third consecutive quarter where total shipments exceeded 100 million units.

Vendors shipped 106.5 million units in 2Q11 compared to 64.4 million units in the second quarter of 2010. The 65.4 percent growth was on par with IDC's forecast of 67.3 percent for the quarter and below the 84.0 percent year-over-year growth in 1Q11.

For 2011, IDC maintains that the worldwide smartphone market will grow 55 percent over 2010. According to Ramon Llamas, senior research analyst with IDC's Mobile Phone Technology and Trends team, the first half of the year has demonstrated strong growth for the smartphone market, with Apple leading the pack. The second half of the year is expected to bring new flagship models and refreshed user experiences to market. These will keep smartphones well out in front of the market, and keep growth on an upward trajectory.

Apple's success can be directly attributed to its distribution (more than 200 carriers in more than 200 countries), increased manufacturing capacity, and solid demand within emerging and developed markets from both consumers and business users. The company's emergence as the number one smartphone vendor worldwide comes at a time when former worldwide leader Nokia is in the midst of a major transition. However, Apple has yet to top Nokia's single-quarter volume record of 28.1 million units. But given Apple's momentum in the smartphone market, it may not be a question of whether Apple will beat that milestone, but when, according to IDC.

US Cancer research portals launch on HighWire's ePublishing platform - 05 Aug 2011

HighWire Press, a not-for-profit division of Stanford University libraries, is presenting a suite of themed portals for the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), a leading professional organisation representing physicians who care for people with cancer.

The subject-specific cancer portals claim to be an invaluable one-stop resource for readers seeking scientific abstracts, videos, links and other materials. For publishers, the portals offer a glimpse into the flexibility of HighWire's Open Platform to re-purpose, integrate and monetise content within and beyond their HighWire-hosted publications.

The 11 ASCO Cancer Portals seamlessly incorporate content from multiple sources. These include the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the Journal of Oncology Practice, ASCO meeting sites, news and reference sources, ASCO Clinical Practice Guidelines, as well as incoming links from PubMed and other relevant HighWire-hosted colleague publications. Each custom portal is focused on a targeted segment of oncology research, re-purposing content and presenting it in a way designed to reach new audiences.

The HighWire Open Platform solution set will enable publishers to re-purpose, integrate and monetise content within and beyond their HighWire-hosted publications. The ASCO custom portal mini-sites integrate up to eight different types and sources of information. This comprehensive approach is being implemented using Drupal, one of the world's most popular open source frameworks for website enhancement.

German De Gruyter to test patron-driven acquisition model at FernUniversität university in Hagen - 05 Aug 2011

Academic publisher De Gruyter, Germany, has announced that it will provide German distance-learning university FernUniversität in Hagen with comprehensive trial access to its specialist literature with a view to identifying demand. The test will last for a year, beginning August 1, 2011, and examine the new patron-driven acquisition model.

With more than 76,000 students enrolled in its courses, the FernUniversität claims to be Germany's largest university. The aim of the new acquisition model is to identify precisely what academic literature teaching staff and students need. The aim is to ensure that the funds available for resources are used efficiently.

As soon as the test phase begins, students and teaching staff at the FernUniversität will have access to all of De Gruyter's electronic content which is relevant to the subjects offered by the university in Hagen. Based on usage of the journals, databases and e-books, Hagen University Library will then decide which resources to purchase permanently. The test phase will be supported by the Berlin School of Library and Information Science at Humboldt-Universität. Prof. Michael Seadle and his team want to analyse research and information behaviour during the pilot project.
