US Elsevier acquires bepress - 03 Aug 2017

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, has acquired bepress, a Berkeley, California-based business that helps academic libraries showcase and share their institutions' research for maximum impact. Founded by three University of California, Berkeley professors in 1999, bepress allows institutions to collect, organise, preserve and disseminate their intellectual output, including preprints, working papers, journals or specific articles, dissertations, theses, conference proceedings and a wide variety of other data.

Showcasing research is critical as competition increases among institutions to secure funding and attract faculty and students. By joining Elsevier, bepress will be better able to address institutions' promotional needs, such as attracting students, faculty and grants, and preserving research data and outputs. Elsevier's suite of research products, such as Scopus, Pure, SSRN and SciVal will enhance the breadth and quality of the reach, promotion and impact services bepress delivers to its customers.

The academic community relies on tools to support more efficient and productive work. Bepress's Digital Commons platform provides cross-repository aggregation and referencing by type of content or author into 'Commons' or 'Networks.' Bepress currently has content containing over 2 million articles and 100 million annual downloads.

The bepress CEO and employees will continue working with the company in Berkeley, California. The acquisition is effective immediately and terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.

US JSTOR expands in the Sciences with Scientific American - 03 Aug 2017

JSTOR has announced an agreement with Springer Nature to include Scientific American in JSTOR.

Scientific American is the authority on science and technology for a general audience, with coverage that explains how research changes our understanding of the world and shapes our lives. First published in 1845, Scientific American is the longest continuously published magazine in the US. The magazine has published articles by more than 150 Nobel Prize-winning scientists and built a loyal following of influential and forward-thinking readers. The archives of Scientific American include articles penned by Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Jonas Salk, Marie Curie, Stephen Hawking, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Stephen Jay Gould, Bill Gates, and more.

JSTOR will offer the complete run of Scientific American from 1845 to 2012, with new content added each year. Scientific American will be included in the JSTOR Life Sciences collection, where it joins more than 150 other esteemed publications including Science, BMJ: British Medical Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and many others. The addition of Scientific American expands JSTOR's coverage of a broad range of scientific fields, and will additionally benefit interdisciplinary researchers working across the humanities and social sciences.

German Journal of High Energy Physics celebrates 20 years of open access electronic publishing - 03 Aug 2017

The Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP) celebrated its 20th anniversary in July 2017. The open access journal belongs to the international School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, and is published by Springer in collaboration with SISSA Medialab srl. JHEP covers world-leading research in high-energy physics, as well as related topics including general relativity, gravitation, and mathematical aspects of quantum field theories.

When JHEP was founded by Daniele Amati and Loriano Bonora in July 1997, the aim was to create a journal which would allow physicists to write, submit, referee and edit papers in an electronic format – a concept that was very new at the time. As a result of this foresight, JHEP soon became one of the most prestigious journals in the field.

Since 2014, the costs of publishing open access in the journal (the article processing charges, APCs) have been completely covered by the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3).

US The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley adopts Ex Libris Alma and Primo to unify library systems - 03 Aug 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library management service and Primo® discovery and delivery solution.

Established in 2013, UTRGV is now consolidating systems used by two former schools that are part of the new university. In making the move to Alma and Primo, the university's goal is to streamline the differing workflows from each campus and adopt a standardized, more efficient approach.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley selected Alma and Primo for the superior functionality and interconnectivity they offer. The library's top priority was finding an integrated library system that could serve as a universal tool to tie library functions together in a meaningful way. Library staff members are excited by the prospect of using interconnected workflows, as well as by the ease of generating meaningful analytics. Also, with the merging of two formerly separate libraries, the staff will have an opportunity to learn the new products together and share experiences as resource management becomes unified for a united institution.

With new data-driven capabilities, the library plans to simplify decision-making about de-selection, preferred formats, and how to improve cost efficiency. The university believes that the reports enabled by Alma analytics will make it easier for the library to demonstrate its impact on research, teaching, and learning.

US APA collaborates with Center for Open Science to offer preprint services, data repository and open science badges to authors - 03 Aug 2017

The American Psychological Association, the non-profit publisher of 90 psychology journals, has entered a partnership with the Center for Open Science to offer open science badges to authors, create an APA data repository to ease sharing and designate a preferred preprint server for APA journal articles.

APA's journals program also supports open science badges, offered to authors who choose to share their data or materials or pre-register studies in an effort to promote transparency in scientific research. According to APA Journals Publisher Dr. Rose Sokol-Chang, three APA-published journals have begun awarding the badges, and more are expected to follow.

The badges were developed in 2013 by a committee supported by the Center for Open Science.

APA's data repository will be hosted by the Center for Open Science's Open Science Framework. This repository will help researchers work on a project privately, with a limited number of collaborators, or allow them to make parts of or their entire project publicly accessible. The repository will store and archive research data, protocols and materials, with data being made open once it is published in an APA journal.

APA Journals has also designated PsyArXiv (psychology archive) as the preferred preprint server for APA titles, with plans to integrate with the submission portals for some APA-published journals. PsyArXiv allows scholars to post documents such as working papers, unpublished work and articles under review (preprints), making them accessible to other researchers and the public at no cost. Users can also upload revisions of their posted document and supplemental documents, such as appendices.

PsyArXiv is operated by the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science and hosted and maintained by the Center for Open Science.

The APA-published journals that are currently awarding badges are: Law and Human Behavior, the journal of APA Div. 41 (American Psychology-Law Society); Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, the journal of APA Div. 45 (Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race); and the Canadian Psychological Association's Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology.

To earn badges, authors must report that they have placed data and other materials related to an article on a qualifying repository, or that they have pre-registered their research design.
