UK Three new titles join Nature family of journals - 12 Jan 2016

Three new titles - Nature Energy, Nature Microbiology and Nature Reviews Materials – have joined the Nature family of journals.

The provision of energy is a key issue at the heart of modern society: where do we get it from, how do we use it, and is there enough of it for what we want? Nature Energy is dedicated to publishing the highest quality natural and social sciences research exploring all aspects of this ongoing discussion, from the generation and storage of energy, to its distribution and management, the needs and demands of the different actors, and the impacts that energy technologies and policies have on societies.

Nature Microbiology brings together both researchers and policy makers interested in learning about the most accomplished and notable advances in the field. It will publish the highest quality research covering all aspects of microorganisms: their evolution, physiology and cell biology, their interactions with each other, with a host or with an environment and their societal significance.

In addition to original research, Nature Energy and Nature Microbiology will also publish Commentaries, Review articles, News and Views, and Correspondence covering the many issues of interest to their respective communities.

Nature Reviews Materials is the first physical sciences journal in the Nature Reviews family and emulates the principles of authoritative and high-quality Reviews content. The Reviews provide an informative introduction to materials scientists embarking on a new topic of investigation yet providing thought-provoking, in-depth sections for the expert.

Nature Reviews Materials builds on the success of Nature Materials, the top rated journal in its sector. It covers the making, measuring, modeling and manufacturing of materials - thus, looking at materials science throughout the pipeline of laboratory discovery to functional device.

Like all Nature-branded journals, Nature Energy, Nature Microbiology and Nature Reviews Materials are staffed by an in-house team of professional editors and are characterized by a fair and rigorous peer-review process, high standards of copy-editing and production, swift publication and editorial independence. They are available to online personal subscribers and via institutional site license.

These three new titles join a wider portfolio of 35 Nature-branded subscription journals available on nature.com, which also offers authors and readers a growing array of OA choices. Last year, over 60% of articles published on nature.com were made freely available via open access.

US EBSCO Information Services introduces $150,000 grant to fund solar adoption - 12 Jan 2016

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is introducing a grant to help libraries Go Solar. As part of the EBSCO Solar initiative, EBSCO is currently soliciting grant applications to help libraries in the United States fund solar installations. EBSCO is making a total of $150,000 available to one or more libraries that will allow the winning libraries to reduce their utilities expenditures and, if allowed in their state, to sell back electricity to the grid.

In August 2007, EBSCO installed a photovoltaic array on the roof of one of the buildings of its Ipswich, Massachusetts campus. At the time, the 192 solar panels made up one of the largest installations on the North Shore of Boston. Two more arrays were added to buildings on campus, and EBSCO now has more than 500 solar panels offsetting the amount of "brown power" the company buys from the grid and generating clean energy to reduce EBSCO's environmental footprint. After seeing the benefits of "going green" on its own campus, EBSCO is introducing a grant so libraries interested in adding their own solar arrays can do so.

EBSCO Industries President and CEO Tim Collins says the grant is a natural extension of the work EBSCO has done with its 'on green' efforts and the support it wants to provide the community.

More information is available on the EBSCO Solar webpage at www.ebsco.com/solar including the timeline, submission form and FAQs. Interested libraries are encouraged to submit questions until February 29th. Submissions are due by April 29th and the winner will be announced on June 24th, 2016 during ALA-Annual.

OCLC is a nonprofit global library cooperative that provides technology services, original research, and community programs to support libraries. OCLC and its member libraries produce and maintain WorldCat.

Librarians around the world trust WorldCat to deliver the content and search features users need. Every day, users search WorldCat for resources held in academic, research, public, and corporate/special libraries around the world.

US NISO announces formal publication of updated version of Journal Article Tag Suite 1.1 - 12 Jan 2016

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the formal publication of the updated version of JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite 1.1, ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2015. This newly official edition is a revision of ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2012, also known as JATS 1.0, first published in July 2012.

The purpose of JATS is to define a suite of XML elements and attributes that describes the content of metadata and journal articles using a common format that enables the exchange of journal content. This Tag Suite thus is intended to preserve intellectual content of journals independent of the form in which the content was originally delivered, and enables an archive to capture structural and semantic components of existing material. In addition, the JATS standard includes three implementations of the suite, called Tag Sets, which are intended to provide models for archiving, publishing, and authoring journal article content.

The NISO JATS 1.1 standard is available as both an online XML document and a freely available PDF from the NISO website at http://www.niso.org/workrooms/journalmarkup. Supporting documentation and schemas in DTD, RELAX NG, and W3C Schema formats are available at http://jats.nlm.nih.gov.

US ScienceOpen’s new tool for researchers to create their own ‘best of’ collections - 12 Jan 2016

ScienceOpen, the research and publishing network, has created a tool for researchers to create their own 'best of' collections from among over 10 million articles across all publishers and journals. The 'Collection' principle may change the way scientists access and prioritise academic literature in journals.

ScienceOpen Collections provide valuable aspects of classical journals such as topic-specific bundling, editorial selection, peer review and quality assurance. Moreover it enables these features independent of journal and publication date and free of cost.

For academic authors, the post-publication activity around their scholarly article – such as being included in a ScienceOpen Collection and the visibility associated with that, may bring more reputation to their work than the so-called journal impact factor. The goal is a faster and fairer evaluation process.
