UK Two new titles join Nature Research journals portfolio - 17 Mar 2017

Two new titles will join the Nature Research journals portfolio in January 2018 - Nature Catalysis and Nature Electronics. They will open for submissions in the spring of 2017.

The two new journals will join the recently announced Nature Sustainability, and further demonstrate Nature Research's commitment to publishing applied research in support of societal needs and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, such as affordable and clean energy, industry innovation and infrastructure, responsible consumption and production. The journals also exemplify Springer Nature's determination to advance discovery by publishing robust and insightful research and to provide the best possible service to the whole of the research community by expanding the diversity of research published by Nature Research.

Nature Electronics will cover all areas of electronics, including commercial and industrial aspects of electronics research, and, at its core, be concerned with the development of new technologies and understanding the impact of these developments on society. It will publish both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, from the study of novel phenomena and devices, to the design, construction and wider application of electronic circuits. It will be led by Chief Editor Dr Owain Vaughan, previously an editor at Nature Nanotechnology and strategy editor for Nature Research.

Catalysis research cuts across the whole of chemistry — organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and biochemistry — and also touches upon other branches of science, such as material science and nanotechnology. Nature Catalysis will cover the science and business of catalysis research, publishing both fundamental and applied work on homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysts. The Chief Editor of Nature Catalysis will be Dr Enda Bergin, who was previously Senior Editor at Nature Communications.

Nature Catalysis and Nature Electronics will be characterised by a fair and rigorous peer-review process, high standards of copy-editing and production, swift publication and editorial independence. In addition to primary research, the journals will publish reviews, commentaries, features, perspectives, and news & views pieces covering the many issues of interest to their respective communities.

The journals will be online-only and subscription-based. They will be included in Springer Nature's SharedIt content sharing initiative, which was recently expanded across the Springer Nature owned portfolio. SharedIt provides authors and readers with shareable links to view-only versions of peer-reviewed research papers and enables more than 200 media outlets and blogs to link to a free-to-read version of research articles.

UK New SPARC Europe report on Open Data and Open Science policies in Europe - 17 Mar 2017

SPARC Europe, together with the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), has released a report that provides a snapshot of various Open Data and Open Science policies, as they currently stand throughout Europe. The report gives an overview and quick access via live links to the sourced policy information, by country. This document is unique in the level of insight it provides on the topic of Open Science and Open Data policies in particular.

With the pace at which the Open Data and Open Science landscape is evolving, keeping informed of the many policy changes occurring throughout Europe can be challenging. According to SPARC Europe's director, Vanessa Proudman, for those who are currently developing, evaluating or strengthening their national or regional Open Science policies, it is essential.

While the 28 EU member states are the primary focus of the piece, EEA countries as well as other nations in the European Research Area are also included.

This report is the first in a series that will seek to shed light on similarities and differences in Open Data and Open Science policies between European nations, and to assess their effectiveness in opening research data. While this initial paper provides an overview; the next installment, due later this spring, will report on results from a forthcoming analysis of some of these policies.

US AAU, ARL, AAUP to launch Open Access Monograph Publishing Initiative - 17 Mar 2017

The Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Association of American University Presses (AAUP) are implementing a new initiative to advance the wide dissemination of scholarship by humanities and humanistic social sciences faculty members by publishing free, open access, digital editions of peer-reviewed and professionally edited monographs.

The AAU/ARL/AAUP Open Access Monograph Publishing Initiative, expected to launch this spring, will benefit scholars, the public, universities, libraries, and presses in several ways. Open access, digital monographs will make new research freely available online, thereby increasing the presence of humanities and social science scholarship on the web and opening up this content to more readers, putting it into the venue where many scholars are working.

Publishing costs will be met by university-funded grants and other revenue sources. These publication grants will enable open access publishing and will send a strong signal to humanities and social sciences faculties that universities value and wish to promote their scholarship.

The expanded dissemination of scholarship within and beyond the academy advances the core mission of universities to create and transmit new knowledge for public benefit.

This initiative may enable the incorporation into digital monographs of new capacities, such as the integration of multimedia with text and the application of annotation and commenting tools, and can encourage the development of innovative forms of digital scholarship.

The funding model based on publication grants will allow presses to publish important, high-quality scholarship freely accessible to readers and independent of market constraints. The universities and colleges directly participating in this initiative will incorporate three components into their digital monograph publishing projects: provide a baseline university publishing grant of $15,000 to support the publication of an open access, digital monograph of 90,000 words or less (with additional funding for works of greater length or complexity to be negotiated by the author, institution, and publisher); set a target of awarding at least three publishing grants per year; and commit to participating in this initiative for five years.

To date, 12 institutions have committed to participate in this initiative.

AAUP is actively compiling a list of member publishers that are currently ready to accept grants under the terms of this initiative, 57 publishers as of March 16, 2017. This list is expected to grow.

This initiative is the result of extensive planning conducted by a joint AAU/ARL task force, later joined by AAUP and then by interested, invited institutions.
