US Clarivate Analytics and Digital Measures partner to integrate Web of Science and InCites content into Activity Insight - 12 May 2017

For many academic institutions, keeping faculty activity and profiles up to date is a time-consuming data entry exercise. With the newly announced partnership between Clarivate Analytics and Digital Measures, Web of Science and InCites content is now integrated into Activity Insight™, Digital Measures faculty activity reporting software, enabling faculty profiles to be updated in real time. The integration uses API calls into the Web of Science content to keep faculty activity up-to-date and relevant.

Over a century of expansive coverage of the world's most impactful research has brought the Web of Science cited references to over 1 billion, and still counting. This volume of references can be difficult for academic administrators to manage.

With this partnership, current Web of Science subscribers have access to this full list of integrated content: Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Sciences Citation Index, Book Citation Index, Emerging Sources Citation Index, Conference Proceedings Citation Index – Science/Social Sciences and Humanities Edition, and InCites.

Italy University of Genoa selects Ex Libris Alma Service to unify management of resources - 12 May 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Italy's University of Genoa (Università degli Studi di Genova) has opted to migrate to the Ex Libris Alma® library management service to help meet the increasing demand for electronic resources. Integrated with the university's Primo discovery and delivery solution, including the Primo Central Index, the Alma service will enable the library team to benefit from unified, streamlined workflows.

A long-term Ex Libris Aleph® customer, the university library found that the type of resources that users seek has undergone a significant change in the past few years. As a result, the university library system has had to adapt to new processes for acquiring and managing electronic resources in addition to managing extensive print collections.

The move to Alma will give the university a unified resource management solution that will enable the staff to take advantage of enhanced workflows for acquiring and managing electronic resources. The librarians will also be using the Alma Community Zone to collaborate on the cataloging, acquisition, and management of resources. The resulting time that is saved on day-to-day tasks will provide more opportunities for the library to deliver teaching, learning, and visitor support services.

UK IOP Publishing celebrates 50 years of the Journal of Physics series - 12 May 2017

IOP Publishing is celebrating 50 years of its Journal of Physics series. The Journal of Physics (JPhys) series encompasses five core physics journals, a conference series and a new open access journal covering all of physics. In celebration of this anniversary, IOP Publishing has commissioned a selection of viewpoints looking back over the 50 years of the JPhys series to highlight a selection of important papers published by the journals.

The origins of the JPhys series can be traced back to the journal Proceedings of the Physical Society, which commenced publication in 1874, with the series expanding and adapting to cover new fields and the needs of the scientific community.

Now in its 50th year, the series has established itself as an authoritative and internationally recognised journal series in physics, with a considerable legacy.

The JPhys series now consists of: Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics, Journal of Physics: Conference Series, and Journal of Physics Communications.

US Wikipedia editors can now easily add citations that link to library resources in WorldCat - 12 May 2017

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC and the Wikimedia Foundation's Wikipedia Library are working together to make it easy for editors to link citations in Wikipedia to millions of library materials represented in WorldCat, the world's most comprehensive database of information about library collections.

References and reliable sources help Wikipedia editors verify facts included in articles. They also provide additional resources that might be of interest to readers who want to delve deeper into research topics. However, adding references has not always been easy, and often required cutting and pasting or re-typing information.

The ability to generate citations has improved significantly and now Wikimedia's cite tool, a companion to its visual editing interface, allows editors to generate a full citation from a single identifier. The integration of OCLC's WorldCat Search API into the cite tool helps editors automatically generate and add citations that link back to resources represented in WorldCat.

OCLC has worked with the Wikimedia movement on several projects in recent years. In 2012, OCLC worked with a Wikipedian in Residence to explore ways that library metadata could contribute to Wikipedia. The result was a Wikipedia bot that adds VIAF authority control data to easily and consistently identify people in articles. Later, in collaboration with the Wikipedia Library, OCLC Research helped to establish the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar position at five universities.

In 2016, OCLC was a winner of the Knight News Challenge for a project to promote collaboration between public libraries and Wikipedia. In March 2017, OCLC hired a Wikipedian-in-Residence, a position funded by a project grant from the Wikimedia Foundation, to facilitate the Wikipedia + Libraries: Better Together project.
