German One billion metadata facts now on Springer Nature SciGraph - 19 Dec 2017

SciGraph, the Linked Open Data (LOD) platform launched by Springer Nature in March 2017, now holds over one billion metadata statements about content published by Springer Nature and links to established external datasets.

The LOD platform aggregates data sources from content published across Springer Nature covering an array of subjects and scientific disciplines. Its search and navigation functionality allows users to explore the connections between bibliographic metadata statements labelled by a range of categories including author, institution, fields of study, research grants, funders, conferences, locations. Citations, patents and clinical trials will be added in 2018.

The majority of these datasets are freely accessible and provided in a way that allows experts to analyse downloaded datasets using their own software, or by using the new SciGraph Data Explorer online. SciGraph has been developed to meet the needs of a variety of communities including metadata specialists, librarians, researchers and software and application developers.

SciGraph aligns with Springer Nature's wider efforts to make data open, accessible and reusable. Alongside SharedIt and Recommended - two other industry-leading initiatives recently launched by the publisher - SciGraph aims to connect people with the most relevant and important information that can advance discovery.

Wolters Kluwer Health, in partnership with the Education Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), will begin publishing the Journal of Physical Therapy Education (JOPTE) with online publication of the December 2017 issue. JOPTE is the eighth APTA journal added to the Lippincott portfolio.

JOPTE moves to an online-only format beginning with the December issue. Readers can also expect expanded indexing and access to archived issues with more discoverability through Ovid. Highlights of the inaugural issue include: an editorial from Co-editors Dr. Susan F. Wainwright and Dr. Kevin E. Brueilly discussing the direction of JOPTE; a look at the cost analysis of a student-run physical therapy clinic; reflective narratives by student physical therapists on their clinical experiences; a case report examining linking essential core competencies to pediatric content in an entry-level physical therapy education curriculum.

As new co-editors, Dr. Wainwright and Dr. Brueilly will leverage the substantial publishing resources of Wolters Kluwer to achieve their goals of taking JOPTE to the next level as an internationally recognised publication in education.

JOPTE joins a high-impact portfolio of physical therapy journals that includes Pediatric Physical Therapy, Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy, Journal of Geriatric Physical Therapy, Journal of Women's Health Physical Therapy, Journal of Acute Care Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation Oncology and Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy Journal.

UK BEPAM becomes one of the select few journals to be conferred ‘CIB recognised’ status - 19 Dec 2017

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has announced that its Built Environment Project and Asset Management (BEPAM) has become only the third journal in the world to be recognised by International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB).

CIB is the world's foremost platform for international co-operation and information exchange in the area of building and construction research and innovation, so becoming a 'recognised journal' - which involves a stringent process - represents a real breakthrough for BEPAM and its team.

BEPAM provides a niche forum to address interfaces between project management and asset management of building and civil engineering infrastructure. The journal deliberates on, disseminates and validates cutting edge research and development in construction project management and infrastructure asset management, given the increasingly critical intersections and convergence between these domains, e.g. with increasing 'whole life' focus and sustainability imperatives. It connects both established and upcoming researchers with progressive practitioners in these fields and proactively links research and practitioner communities worldwide.

German De Gruyter and United Nations to cooperate on OA book project - 19 Dec 2017

Academic publisher De Gruyter and the United Nations are cooperating on the publication of two open access books in mathematics. The UN promotes international cooperation in the peaceful use and exploration of outer space, and among its responsibilities are the UN-affiliated Regional Centers for Space Science and Technology Education (located in India, Morocco, Nigeria, Mexico/Brazil, Jordan and China).

The Regional Centers are responsible for the development of skills and knowledge for university educators and research and applications scientists. To do this, they use rigorous theory, research, applications, field exercises, and pilot projects in those aspects of space science and technology that can contribute to sustainable development in each respective region.

Both books are open access titles accessible to anyone, anywhere and will form the basis of the mathematics foundation courses within the curricula of the Regional Centers. Both are designed for physicists and engineers. The first volume covers Linear Algebra and the second volume focuses on Probability and Statistics.
