Netherland IFLA signs open letter calling on Members of the European Parliament to ensure Open Access remains open in Europe - 11 Sep 2017

The transition towards Open Access is gaining momentum. It promises to deliver a major step forward in giving access to the results of science and research, allowing new ideas to emerge and spread more quickly than ever before.

However, it is still a work in progress. Not only business models, but also key parts of the necessary infrastructure are still in development. One example is open access repositories, where researchers can upload their work. These repositories play an important role in allowing the simple sharing and discovery of articles or other materials. They tend to be run by libraries or research institutions, on a non-commercial basis.

There are usually restrictions about what can be uploaded onto these repositories and when, set out in contracts with publishers – for example it may only be allowed to post a 'pre-print' version of a paper to a repository. However, with many researchers unclear about exactly what they can do with their work, they sometimes make mistakes.

Ordinarily, these repositories benefit from 'safe harbour' provisions – as long as they are ready to correct these mistakes if a rightholder demands it, they will not face legal action. However, current EU copyright provisions risk making the people and institutions who run repositories legally liable, unless they install filtering technologies.

Repositories are financed neither to take on the burden of buying in filter technologies (which risk declaring legitimate uses of works illegal), nor to bear the legal responsibility for mistakes by researchers. If these European proposals pass, open access in Europe and around the world will suffer. The EU’s previously strong record on promoting open access will be damaged.

International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) has therefore signed an open letter, calling on Members of the European Parliament to reject these proposals, and so make sure that Open Access remains open in Europe.

Others interested in signing should go to the SPARC Europe website, where there are instructions on how to do so.

UK IOP Publishing introduces ORCID scheme across all its journals - 11 Sep 2017

IOP Publishing is now requiring ORCID identifiers for all corresponding authors submitting their work to IOP Publishing-owned journals. The move is part of IOP Publishing's commitment to ensure researchers get full credit for their work.

Open Researcher and Contributor ID, known as ORCID, is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a unique digital name, or ID, which identifies researchers and scholars and distinguishes them from others with similar names. By connecting this iD to all their research activities, publications, and affiliations, researchers will be able to benefit from improved recognition, reduce reporting burdens, and ensure they receive full credit for their work.

In addition, with several major funders now requiring ORCID IDs as part of their grant application process, this could help reduce the administrative burden on researchers as well as providing scholarly benefits.

From September 11, 2017, IOP Publishing will require ORCID IDs from corresponding authors submitting to all its owned journals. ORCID IDs will be collected at submission, through the journals' ScholarOne system.

This will allow IOP Publishing to automatically update researchers' ORCID records when their articles are published and continue with their highly successful collaboration with Publons to acknowledge the vital work carried out by reviewers, helping to connect all their research activities, publications, and affiliations.

The announcement comes at the start of Peer Review Week, an industry-wide event that celebrates, and educates people about, peer review.

US CHORUS and IARPA sign participation agreement - 11 Sep 2017

CHORUS has announced an agreement with the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), part of the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), to expand public access to the results of its funded research.

IARPA adheres to the OSTP public access policy and follows the ODNI public access plan to ensure effective access to and reliable preservation of IARPA-funded scholarly publications and digitally recorded scientific research data for research, development, and education.

IARPA will employ CHORUS' services to build on open standards, distributed networks and established infrastructure to advance access to scholarly articles reporting on IARPA-funded research, as well as enable agency indexing and long-term preservation of those articles. IARPA uses the US Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) platform as a repository, which enables readers searching DTIC's PubDefense (https://publicaccess.dtic.mil) to follow links that point to publicly available articles/accepted manuscripts in context of the journal where they were published.

CHORUS now has agreements in place with eight US and two international funding agencies.

CHORUS' interoperable, distributed approach knits together existing tools, services, and infrastructure to facilitate sustainable public access, sharing, discoverability, reporting, and preservation of content reporting on funded research. CHORUS' open API (application programming interface) enables funders and others to develop their own search functionality tapping into its data identifying articles associated with funding agencies and invites innovators to develop new tools and functionality that further support discovery and public access.

US Editage covers 8th International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publishing - 11 Sep 2017

Editage is covering real-time discussions from The Eighth International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publication in Chicago between September 10 and 12. In addition to exhibiting their new Peer review training courses and Research communications services at their booth, Editage will cover the event from a journalistic perspective and share daily reports with their large community of authors and journals in Asia. The congress, which takes place once in four years, will discuss the problems, improvements, and innovations in the Peer Review System.

Organized by The JAMA Network, The BMJ, and the Meta-research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS), the Eighth International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publishing will discuss the future direction for the Peer Review System. It is also a great chance for people to present their abstracts and posters about scientific publishing and peer review. Editage will be listening to all the sessions and discussions and will share important developments and trending conversations with Asian journals and authors.

Editage aims to help scholars break through the confines of geography and language, bridge the gap between authors and peer-reviewed journals, and accelerate the process of publishing high-quality research. Editage is taking a significant step toward bridging this gap by sharing the voice of authors about the peer review and scientific publishing system with an audience comprising prominent figures in the scientific community.

Interested parties may follow Editage on LinkedIn and Twitter for live coverage of sessions from the Eighth International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publishing.
