UK EPLF is latest European institution to adopt Altmetrics to complement existing bibliometric analysis - 06 Jun 2017

Alternative metrics provider Altmetric has announced that École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) has become the latest institution to adopt the Explorer for Institutions platform to help analyse the online engagement surrounding its scholarly research outputs.

With an intuitive interface which enables users to browse, filter and report on the latest shares and mentions for over 10 million research outputs, the Explorer for Institutions platform makes it easy to identify where academic work has received mainstream or social media coverage, been referenced in public policy, or received attention from scholarly and broader audiences in places such as Wikipedia, Reddit and post-publication peer-review forums. Citation data from Scopus and Web of Science is also included where available.

EPFL joins leading institutions including Ghent University, ETH Zurich, The University of Helsinki and the International Institute of Social Studies and the Erasmus Research Institute of Management at Erasmus University Rotterdam in utilising Altmetric data to better understand the reach and influence of published research.

US Cengage announces major initiative to fight growing problem of counterfeit course materials - 06 Jun 2017

Cengage, an education and technology company, has announced a major initiative to fight the growing problem of counterfeit print course materials, which is estimated to cost the company between $70 million to $100 million annually. Beginning with shipments currently underway to on-campus, off-campus and online retailers, Cengage print products will include a unique certification seal developed by an expert third-party certification company. The seal includes a QR code and one-off indicators that verify the product's authenticity.

In cooperation with the Education Publisher Enforcement Group (EPEG), Cengage recently reviewed the inventories of several online sellers to determine how much of their inventory was counterfeit. The results were startling: for portions of their inventory over 75 percent of the books were counterfeit, while some had 100 percent of the titles offered for sale being counterfeit.

Moving forward, the certification seal will allow sales partners and customers to easily confirm they have an authentic Cengage product, avoiding the potential for incorrect or inferior class materials. Students, professors and retailers need simply scan the QR code, which will take them to a Cengage website to verify the one-off indicator that the product is legitimate.

UK Institution of Engineering and Technology to host global STEM competition in the UK - 06 Jun 2017

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills of hundreds of budding young engineers will be challenged when they compete in a robotic competition for students organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), hosted at the University of Bath and sponsored by Bechtel.

Over 700 children aged 9-16 representing 36 countries from across the world will take part in the four-day STEM challenge taking place in the UK for the very first time this month.

The young engineers will compete in the IET's FIRST® LEGO® League International Open Championship, held at the University of Bath between June 21-25.

Teams taking part in the International Open Championship are challenged to build a robot using LEGO that can successfully tackle a series of missions, each representing a different aspect of animal-human interaction. The students will be required to demonstrate their skills in robotics, computer programming, teamwork, research, problem solving and communication, demonstrating the FIRST® LEGO® League core values, which include respect and inclusion.

The event coincides with International Women in Engineering Day (Friday 23 June) during which the University of Bath is hosting around 80 aspiring female engineers from local schools to find out more and experience a taste of what it is like to study an engineering discipline at university. As part of their visit to Bath, the budding female engineers will hear from current female engineering students and staff, take part in a number of fun and challenging engineering-related tasks, and in the afternoon meet a number of the competing students at the FIRST® LEGO® League International Open Championship.
