Netherland Major Educational Content Providers in deal with Barnes & Noble Education to combat counterfeit textbooks - 01 Aug 2017

Educational content providers Cengage, Elsevier, McGraw-Hill Education, and Pearson have announced an agreement with Barnes & Noble Education, Inc. to implement the industry's Anti-Counterfeit Best Practices. The best practices were developed to assist publishers and distributors in combating counterfeits of print textbooks, a growing problem facing the industry.

Sales of counterfeit books are harmful to students, educators, publishers and distributors. The rise of illegal counterfeit materials in the market results in reduced incentives for publishers to invest in new content and technology to improve learning. In addition, distribution of counterfeit materials infringes on the publishers' copyright and trademark rights and ultimately limits royalties due to authors and designers.

Barnes & Noble Education and MBS Textbook Exchange, one of the largest textbooks distributors that was recently acquired by Barnes & Noble Education, joins Ingram and Chegg as distributors working proactively with publishers to reduce the distribution of counterfeit materials.

The best practices outline steps to verify suppliers and avoid illegitimate sources. They require distributors to verify the sources of their textbooks, inspect inventory that has a high risk of being counterfeit and prevent it from infecting their inventory. When a distributor finds counterfeit books, there is agreement to share information about the materials and the supplier with the publishers so they can focus their enforcement efforts on the culprits.

The Anti-Counterfeit Best Practices are available at http://www.stopcounterfeitbooks.com with the goal that all publishers and distributors adopt and implement them as well. The Educational Publishers Enforcement Group (EPEG) is committed to pursuing their legal rights against anyone who is involved or who facilitates the distribution and sale of counterfeit textbooks, as well as those who engage in digital piracy. EPEG is hopeful that the adoption of the Best Practices by Barnes & Noble Education's 1,400 physical and virtual bookstores will prove to have a dramatic effect on the number of counterfeits currently in the marketplace. EPEG is also currently in discussions with other distributors to sign on to the Best Practices as well.

The Publishers worked cooperatively through EPEG to achieve agreement with Barnes & Noble Education on the Best Practices.

US Wiley Content Sharing launches across Wiley Online Library - 01 Aug 2017

Publisher John Wiley and Sons, Inc. has announced the launch of Wiley Content Sharing across its research portfolio. The launch follows a successful trial that began in early 2017. Wiley Content Sharing facilitates collaboration by allowing authors and subscribers to share free-to-read full-text articles with non-subscribers. This new functionality will be available to all journals on Wiley Online Library.

In addition, Wiley Content Sharing provides the public with greater access to research when following links from selected media outlets globally. During the four-month trial Wiley Online Library users shared more than 7,000 links to articles. Upon launch, Wiley Content Sharing will be available to more than 1,700 journals from across Wiley's portfolio.

Wiley Content Sharing enables authors and subscribers to share their work with their peers as well as non-subscribers, including over social media, scholarly collaboration networks and email. Wiley Content Sharing also provides the public with greater access to research through its media sharing capabilities. Popular outlets such as The Daily Mail, The Wall Street Journal and Reuters were included in the pilot alongside specialist sites such as Medscape, Nature and ScienceMag.

Wiley Content Sharing was initially piloted across 180 Wiley journals in early 2017. The four-month trial saw positive results from a global audience, including users in United States, Singapore and Australia. Wiley Content Sharing is powered by ReadCube technology.

Wiley supports the legitimate sharing of research and is a signatory to the Voluntary principles for article sharing on scholarly collaboration networks.

US Johns Hopkins University Press names publishing industry veteran Barbara Kline Pope as new director - 01 Aug 2017

Johns Hopkins University Press, the oldest academic press in America, has announced that Barbara Kline Pope will become director of the Press this fall after 34 years with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Since 1997, Pope has served as executive director of the National Academies Press, steering its traditional print model through an era of digital innovation, including pioneering experiments with open access. She first joined the Washington, D.C., press—the publishing division of the National Academies—in a marketing role in 1983.

In addition to that experience, Pope says, her recent term as president of the Association of American University Presses and seat on the management board at MIT Press help her better familiarise herself with the nuances and trends of university presses.

At JHU Press, Pope will oversee the largest journal publication program of any university in the U.S.—the press publishes more than 85 journals across a range of disciplines. It is also home to a books division with more than 3,000 titles that publishes 150 new books each year. It also includes Project MUSE, a leading provider of digital content in the social sciences and humanities for libraries around the world.

Pope takes over the historic press, which dates to 1878, as the focus of scholarly publishing continues to evolve from printed books and journal subscriptions toward new digital trends and open-access distribution. Under the direction of Pope's predecessor, Kathleen Keane, who retired in April, JHU Press has pursued new paths in this direction, with Project MUSE adding 45,000 e-books and developing MUSE Open, a platform for hosting open-access monographs.
