US Wiley and British Journal of Surgery society partner to launch new open access journal - BJS Open - 16 May 2017

Publisher Wiley has announced a partnership with the British Journal of Surgery society to launch a new open access title, BJS Open. Like its sister title, British Journal of Surgery (BJS), BJS Open will publish high-quality work on all aspects of general surgery and related topics. The new journal features a world-class editorial board, led by Editor-in-Chief Professor Derek Alderson.

If authors submit their paper to BJS, they may be given the opportunity to have their manuscript transferred to BJS Open. The BJS society is committed to providing increasing choice for authors who wish to publish their research in a top-quality surgical journal. Unfortunately, BJS is unable to publish the ever mounting number of acceptable and valuable manuscripts it receives, so authors whose papers are unable to be published in a BJS issue due to lack of space will now have the opportunity to have their article transferred to BJS Open, helping increase the speed to publication and reducing the waste in peer review.

BJS Open will retain the same high standards and tradition of excellence that BJS offers; only high-quality papers will be given the opportunity to transfer to this innovative new journal.

BJS Open will be of interest not only to general surgeons, but also to specialty surgeons and those working in related fields. The journal offers prompt publication of high-quality original research and presents new information related to surgery in general, encompassing all sub-specialist areas as well as elements of trauma and paediatric surgery that are relevant to general surgical practice, across the international surgical community.

The first articles are available to read online now.

US Atypon heightens information security measures for protecting customers’ content and data - 16 May 2017

Atypon has expanded its commitment to enterprise-level IT security and privacy, establishing a Department of Information Security and Privacy and appointing Michael Goodman its director. Goodman will lead Atypon's security and privacy environment with next-generation controls for protecting publishers' content, data, and other sensitive corporate information.

Goodman will be responsible for developing and implementing well-documented, transparent global information security and privacy policies and procedures, ensuring compliance at every level of the Atypon organisation, from employee conduct and technology protection to product application security for Literatum, the company's SaaS online publishing platform. This new position reports to Atypon CEO and founder Georgios Papadopoulos.

Goodman's career path spans every aspect of the information security lifecycle, from software development, systems engineering, incident response, vulnerability assessment, forensics, and threat intelligence to staffing, policy, processes, procedures, and management. He has led enterprise cybersecurity efforts for numerous US federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice, and for corporations like Verizon, the Bank of New York Mellon, and Mars, Inc. He has built online banking systems for major financial organisations and has designed and implemented both private and public cloud solutions.

Last fall, after its acquisition by global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Atypon hired IBM Security Services to conduct a data security and privacy review of existing and planned security practices. Goodman's initial priority will be to address recommendations in the IBM report. He will work closely with Atypon's IT and engineering teams to improve current security and privacy best practices that continue to ensure that no Atypon customer, Atypon staff, or Wiley staff has unauthorized access to content, usage data, or other proprietary client information; that no data leaks occur across clients; and that Atypon clients’ information remains segregated, secure, and sequestered behind firewalls.

The newly established Atypon Publisher Advisory Board (APAB), comprising publishing customer representatives and attended by key Atypon employees, including the Director of Information Security and Privacy, is charged with reviewing the security and privacy plans and implementations, recommending policy, and coordinating an annual third-party audit.

US Association of Research Libraries seeks proposals for SPEC Survey Topics 2018 - 16 May 2017

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is seeking proposals for 2018 SPEC survey topics. For more than 40 years ARL has gathered and disseminated data through the SPEC survey program to assist libraries in the continuous improvement of their management systems. Each year, the Association works with librarians in the US and Canada to develop surveys of the membership on strategic topics related to research library policies and practices.

There will be four SPEC surveys in 2018. Criteria for selecting a 2018 survey topic include the topic's currency and insightfulness; its strategic importance to managing research libraries; its relevance to an ARL focus area or an ARL program promoting diversity and inclusion; its relevance to the ARL Strategic Framework; and whether documents that illustrate current policies and practices can be gathered from survey respondents.

Examples of current areas of interest to research libraries that could fit the SPEC survey model include, but are not limited to: public scholarship and civic or community engagement; metadata services, including linked open data; student success and retention (library contributions to); open access investments and funds (beyond article processing charges); creating and maintaining inclusive climates through design of spaces or services, and involving participation of diverse, underrepresented communities; workforce development; acquiring and managing new forms of scholarship; innovations in engaging users with collections; and measuring organizational success/impact.

Submit proposals online by July 14, 2017, for consideration for 2018. ARL will review proposals and notify authors of the four topics selected for the 2018 survey cycle by August 18, 2017.

Questions about the SPEC survey program and proposal development can be directed to Lee Anne George, publications program officer, at leeanne@arl.org.

Croatia InTechOpen launches new publishing format - InTechOpen Compacts - 16 May 2017

Traditionally, scholarly publishing consisted of two main publication outputs - the journal article and the scholarly monograph. Journal articles and monographs differ not only in terms of manuscript length and research type, but over time, monographs became the preferred format for publishing research in Social Sciences and Humanities, while journal articles remained STM focused.

Seeing a need to develop a product that differs from the traditional methods described above, in 2005 InTechOpen launched the first ever Open Access Edited Volume, known now as the InTechOpen book. These books are InTechOpen initiated projects that enable researchers from all over the world to share their latest research in the form of book chapters - a different option for researchers to publish their scientific findings.

Now, 3,000 Open Access books later, InTechOpen has launched a new publishing format for authors - InTechOpen Compacts.

Compacts are a publishing format for researchers across all disciplines who have research results ready to be published but that do not necessarily fit into the above mentioned publication types. InTechOpen Compacts bridge the gap between book chapters and monographs and are the preferred Open Access publishing format for mid-length manuscripts (50-130 pages) with peer reviewed and CC BY NC 4.0 licensed content.

By launching this new format, InTechOpen authors will not be limited in the publication and resulting dissemination of their research due to its length.
