US NISO unveils new Primer Series with the publication of Primer on Research Data Management - 01 Sep 2015

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has launched a new Primer Series on information management technology issues with the publication of the first primer on the topic of Research Data Management. Two more primers on the topics of Understanding Metadata and Linked Data for Cultural Institutions, respectively, will be released in the coming months, with additional Primers to be published periodically.

The primer on Research Data Management provides an overview of how data management has changed in recent years, and outlines best practices for the collection, documentation, and preservation of research data. The importance of creating a data management plan (DMP) before beginning a research data project is emphasized. Crucial questions regarding how the data will be managed are answered ahead of time in a DMP, thus making it easier for the researcher to collect and document the data properly for future use and reuse. Creating research data that is easily reproducible and transparent is the ultimate goal, and following the guidelines in this primer can help educate researchers to ensure their data is available for others. The differences between publishing papers and publishing datasets and the citation challenges the data community are working on solving are also discussed.

This primer on Research Data Management and the forthcoming primers on Understanding Metadata and Linked Data for Cultural Institutions are introductory documents on these important topics relating to information management for those new to our community, or for those who just need a summary understanding of these issues. The NISO Primer series will be freely available and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons-BY-NC 4.0 license.

The NISO Primer on Research Data Management is available as a free download from the NISO website at: http://www.niso.org/publications/press/researchdata/.

US ARL/SAA Mosaic Program hosts second annual Leadership Forum at SAA Meeting - 01 Sep 2015

The 2014–2016 ARL/Society of American Archivists (SAA) Mosaic Program fellows participated in the second annual Mosaic Leadership Forum on August 18, 2015, during the SAA Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio. Also participating this year was Rachel E. Winston, one of the two 2015 winners of the Harold T. Pinkett Minority Student Award, which SAA presents to minority graduate students who, through scholastic and personal achievement, manifest an interest in becoming professional archivists and active members of SAA.

The daylong Mosaic Leadership Forum focused on leadership in the archives profession, increasing diversity in the field, and involvement in professional organisations at SAA and beyond. The event also included a practical session on job interview techniques and strategies for transitioning into the professional archives workforce. Fellows were met with opportunities to interact and network with advanced professionals who have taken on a variety of roles within their organisations as well as opportunities to further build community as a cohort.

Funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the goal of the ARL/SAA Mosaic Program is to recruit students from traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups who are committed to the archives and special collections profession and to advancing the diversity concerns within the field. The agenda for this year’s forum and more information about the ARL/SAA Mosaic Program can be found on the ARL website.

US Research Solutions, Inc. announces summer 2015 product release of Article Galaxy - 01 Sep 2015

Research Solutions, Inc., a pioneer in providing on-demand access to scientific, technical and medical (STM) information for life science companies, academic institutions, and other research-intensive organisations, has announced the summer 2015 product release of the journal content access and management platform Article Galaxy by subsidiary Reprints Desk, Inc., featuring breakthroughs in research workflow efficiencies.

Already a platform for one-stop shopping and lowest cost acquisition of full-text journal articles from participating publishers without requiring the use of credit cards for each transaction, the Article Galaxy summer 2015 release further enhances to time-to-papers with 'in browser' PDF downloads for non-subscribed content so researchers worldwide can access full-text journal articles, book chapters, and other resources 24/7 and immediately within the online requesting workflow.

Summer 2015 enhancements, which moved into production for Reprints Desk customers on August 14, 2015, include: quick "In-Browser" document delivery downloads; auto-population of bibliographic information into order form fields; and type ahead functionality.

Article Galaxy is based on an 'any article, any publisher' sourcing model. Because the platform is not limited to any single collection, direct sourcing arrangements enable Reprints Desk to more quickly pull full-text content directly from publisher servers, then serve the content up to customers for online or offline viewing. The newest publisher partnerships enable Reprints Desk to expand electronic sourcing to Postgraduate Medicine, Hospital Practice, and The Physician and Sports Medicine from Taylor & Francis; to include titles in the social sciences, economics, and political theory from Palgrave Macmillan; and to more quickly deliver content from Thomson Reuters.
