UK Cambridge University Press launches new OA journal - Personality Neuroscience - 18 May 2017

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has announced the launch of a new Open Access journal, Personality Neuroscience. The journal aims to be the primary outlet for publications on the neuroscience of individual differences.

Personality neuroscience is a new field, emerging in the past ten years, using neuroscientific techniques to examine the causal basis of personality and related factors. The differences between individuals have important consequences for a wide range of behaviours, including clinical disorders, occupational choice/performance, and economic behaviour. In recognition of this importance, the field of personality, intelligence and, more generally, individual differences, is now growing.

Personality Neuroscience aims to capture and define this growing area of study and is the first of its kind to specialise in, and to seek out papers from, neuroscientists, with a focus on personality theory. It takes a broad perspective on neuroscience, including genetics, as well as genes x environmental interactions, and psychometric studies which are aimed at neuroscience-level constructs.

Empirical papers focussed on the interface between personality and neuroscience are encouraged, using any methodological approach, such as experimental, longitudinal, genetic, genomic, gene expression and epigenetic. Developmental and clinical applications, including patient data, are welcomed, as are studies linking systematic individual differences in neural systems to individual differences in important life outcomes. Studies that seek to integrate different areas of research are especially encouraged (e.g., personality and decision science). Short Communications, Systematic Reviews, and Letters are also accepted.

The journal is helmed by Founding Editor Philip J. Corr, Professor of Psychology, City, University of London, UK and Assistant Editor Dean Mobbs, Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Caltech, USA.

US JSTOR and AAAS expand access to Science via JSTOR platform - 18 May 2017

JSTOR and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) have renewed their longstanding agreement to preserve and make available over 100 years of Science via the JSTOR platform.

JSTOR and AAAS first began working together in 1998 when Science was among the earliest journals converted from print to digital form by JSTOR. For nearly 20 years, JSTOR has hosted issues of Science dating back to 1880, more than 480,000 pages of content in total, covering everything from electricity to genomics. JSTOR makes the journal available through several of its collections to libraries around the world, where it can be used by students and researchers working across a wide array of disciplines. With the new agreement, JSTOR and the AAAS renew their commitment to ensuring access to this long history of scientific research and to continuing to add new issues of Science to JSTOR each year.

US ARL announces SPEC Survey webcast on Data Curation - 18 May 2017

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is offering a series of free webcasts that present the findings from the latest SPEC surveys and allow webcast participants to discuss trends with the survey authors. A 45-minute webcast will follow the publication of each SPEC Kit in 2017.

The next webcast in this series will cover the Data Curation survey (SPEC Kit 354). This survey explores the infrastructure that ARL member institutions are using for the active and ongoing management of data through its life cycle of interest and usefulness to scholarly and educational activities.

The Data Curation webcast will review survey findings reported by ARL member libraries in January 2017. The survey authors will provide a snapshot of data curation activities underway at ARL member libraries, with particular attention to specific data-repository technologies and standards; show examples of ARL member libraries' data curation services and resources; and review themes from survey respondent comments.

The webcast will also include a discussion of promising trends and conclude with a question-and-answer session.

The webcast, scheduled for June 14, 2017 from 1:001:45 p.m. eastern daylight time, will be presented by Cynthia Hudson-Vitale, Washington University in St. Louis Libraries; Heidi Imker, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Lisa R. Johnston, University of Minnesota Twin Cities Libraries; Jake Carlson, University of Michigan Library; Wendy Kozlowski, Cornell University; Robert Olendorf, Pennsylvania State University; and Claire Stewart, University of Minnesota. Online registrations are due by June 7, 2017.
