US The American Society of Animal Science and Oxford University Press announce publishing partnership - 13 Sep 2017

The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) has announced its new partnership with Oxford University Press (OUP) to provide production, distribution, and marketing services for the three journals in the ASAS Animal Science Collection. This agreement, which takes effect on January 1, 2018, fits directly within the new ASAS Strategic Plan to enhance visibility of journal portfolios, continue to emphasise global expansion, and to increase society revenue to enhance membership services.

Driven by the need to enhance journal visibility, ASAS reviewed its current publications and publishing platform and determined that the ASAS journal portfolio will be better served by a larger publisher with robust global marketing resources. The Society's decision to choose Oxford University Press followed intensive evaluations and negotiations. Ultimately, the ASAS Publications Committee and Board of Directors selected Oxford University Press because it presented the best understanding of the overall ASAS mission and strategic directives could immediately impact and enhance visibility of ASAS journals in 2018, and the OUP business model aligned with the ASAS business model.

Beginning in January 2018, the OUP platform will host all of the ASAS journals, including Journal of Animal Science, Translational Animal Science, and Animal Frontiers, OUP's review magazine with partners European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), Canadian Society of Animal Science, and American Meat Science Association. Oxford University Press will lead all sales and marketing efforts for the Animal Science publications suite, including institutional programs, digital promotion, and brand development of the journals.

Israel Carnegie Mellon University becomes 1,000th institution to select Ex Libris Alma library services platform - 13 Sep 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the Ex Libris Alma® cloud-based library services platform is now the system of choice for one thousand customers. The thousandth institution to select Alma is Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), which, like the 999 other Alma institutions, will benefit from the streamlined workflows of a unified SaaS resource management solution. Alma will be replacing the SirsiDynix Symphony® integrated library system.

Seeking a solution that is a fundamentally new platform rather than an update of an old product, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries selected Alma primarily for its ease of use, its compatibility with other systems, and the flexibility of its analytics and reporting options. Through its user-friendly interface and integration with the university's financial systems, Alma will greatly improve workflow efficiencies in account creation, billing, and other areas.

Alma continues to be the library platform of choice for academic, state, and national libraries and consortia. The robust, scalable Alma infrastructure is currently live at 750 institutions and in use by over 28,000 library staff members daily in 33 countries around the world, managing over 690 million bibliographic records. Since the beginning of 2017, Alma has carried out over 22 million loan transactions.

Alma claims to be the only truly unified resource management platform handling digital, electronic, and physical resources in a single, streamlined system. The open, cloud-based Alma architecture lowers maintenance and operational costs, while Alma analytics provides libraries with industry benchmarks and a deep understanding of their collections' usage and the possibilities for optimisation.

The collaboration of Ex Libris development teams with Alma customers is key to Alma's success and is evident in the strong user involvement in numerous working groups. Over 900 ideas from Alma users have been posted to the Alma Idea Exchange since its inception in September 2015, with many already implemented or added to the Alma roadmap.

CMU looks forward to benefiting from the openness of the Alma platform. More than 140 Alma APIs are available through the Ex Libris Developer Network and are used by the active Alma developer community to create additional services and automated workflows. In 2017 alone, Alma has handled more than 500 million API transactions for the hundreds of institutions that use it daily.

Switzerland Karger organises two Innovation Forums at the Basel Life congress, launches new OA journal - Digital Biomarkers - 13 Sep 2017

Medical and scientific publisher Karger organised two Innovation Forums at the Basel Life congress on September 12, 2017. The first of these forums explored the field of digital health data and marked the launch of the new Karger Open Access journal Digital Biomarkers. In addition, Karger put the finger on the pulse of innovation in scientific publishing to ensure the needs of the biomedical community are met.

The tracking and recording of health data with devices like smartphones provide the opportunity to fundamentally advance the understanding of health. This also enables a different relationship between patients and doctors and plays a major role in explaining, influencing or predicting health-related patient outcomes. These advancements in public health were the topic of the Karger Innovation Forum on digital biomarkers at Basel Life. Digital biomarkers are defined as objective, quantifiable physiological and behavioral health data that are measured and collected by means of digital devices such as portables, wearables, implantables or digestibles.

Speakers on the topic of digital biomarkers were Suchi Saria from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA, and Ray Dorsey, from the University of Rochester, USA, and the Editor-in-Chief of the new Karger Open Access journal. The speakers were joined by Ieuan Clay from Novartis and Christian Gossens from Roche in a panel discussion moderated by Frank Kumli from Ernst & Young - all three from Basel, Switzerland.

This Innovation Forum also served as the launch event for the new Karger Open Access journal Digital Biomarkers. The journal will be published online only, Open Access. Article processing charges (APC) will be waived at least for the first year.

To design the agenda for the second Innovation Forum 'Innovating MedComms', Karger invited representatives from pharmaceutical companies to discuss their challenges and needs in scientific publishing. From this basis, specialists in scientific publishing gave insights into areas such as reproducibility of results, quality of peer review, new communication channels for scientific results such as videos or infographics, as well as technological innovations to enhance the discoverability and tracking of relevant articles. Participants also learned how to prepare for future developments in submission tools, raw data availability, machine learning, as well as text and data mining. This session was co-organised by the Zurich-based firm Medicalwriters.com.
