UK Jisc Collections and Elsevier sign agreement securing access to research publications and initiating open science collaboration - 07 Nov 2016

Jisc Collections and STM publisher Elsevier have signed a landmark agreement granting academics access to globally-published, high-quality research at costs lower than the industry average. In addition, Jisc Collections and Elsevier have agreed to cooperate on several Open Science opportunities, leveraging Elsevier's world class technology and analytics capabilities to help make science in the UK more collaborative, transparent, effective, and efficient.

The 5-year contract grants subscription access to around 1,850 journals on Elsevier's ScienceDirect e-platform.

According to Paul Feldman, CEO of Jisc, Jisc Collections' analysis shows that over the course of their previous agreement, Elsevier research articles have been of excellent quality at a price per accessible article below the average for the agreements that Jisc Collections negotiates with other publishers.

The new ScienceDirect subscription agreement means that in the next five years UK universities will again benefit from Elsevier's outstanding article quality while they continuously push the price per accessible article below industry average. As such, Elsevier will continue to deliver exceptional value for research and teaching across the UK.

Canada Concordia launches the first open-access academic press in Quebec - 07 Nov 2016

The Concordia University Press is now accepting submissions for scholarly book proposals from across the globe as the university ventures into the digital world of publishing with its new open-access press. The university is the first in Quebec and only the third in Canada to offer open-access scholarly book publishing.

In 2017, CU Press will begin publishing books in both French and English that are engaged, accessible and make a point. With four new titles planned for release in its first year, both digitally as well as in print for sale to readers and libraries, the publisher will not only feature Concordia authors but also attract dynamic projects by scholars from around the world, regardless of institutional affiliation.

One of the project's leaders is Concordia librarian Geoffrey Little, the press’s editor-in-chief. Little will work with an editorial board of Concordia faculty members responsible for approving all titles, providing guidance and support for acquisitions and setting the press’s editorial policy.

US Ringgold and PSI partner to harness the power of linked data - 07 Nov 2016

Ringgold, an ISNI Registration Agency, and Publisher Solutions International, Ltd. (PSI) have signed an agreement that will enable both companies to provide services based on the power of combining Ringgold's Identify Database and PSI's IP Registry.

The process is underway to map Identify and the IP Registry. When the work is complete, these databases will be completely interoperable. This will allow Ringgold customers to license IP data for institutional records within Identify. Likewise, PSI customers will be able to licence Ringgold IDs, hierarchies and metadata.

The curated IP data in the IP Registry will be linked to Ringgold's Institutional Identifiers, organisational hierarchies and rich metadata. Customers of both companies will be able to utilise the data from a single source, reducing time and effort to assess and analyse sales, licensing, usage, and authentication for their customers.
