Netherland Universities in Germany win temporary access to Elsevier journals after refusing to pay fees - 05 Jan 2018

Dutch publishing giant Elsevier has reportedly granted uninterrupted access to its paywalled journals for researchers at around 200 German universities and research institutes that had refused to renew their individual subscriptions at the end of 2017.

The institutions had formed a consortium to negotiate a nationwide licence with the publisher. They sought a collective deal that would give most scientists in Germany full online access to about 2,500 journals at about half the price that individual libraries have paid in the past. But talks broke down and, by the end of 2017, no deal had been agreed. Elsevier now says that it will allow the country's scientists to access its paywalled journals without a contract until a national agreement is hammered out.

Academic-publishing experts around the world are keenly observing the situation in Germany. The nationwide deal sought by scientists includes a open-access option, under which all corresponding authors affiliated with German institutions would be allowed to make their papers free to read and share by anyone in the world. This would be a milestone for global efforts to make the results of publicly funded research immediately and freely available to scientists and the wider public in all countries, they say.

US ACS Publications records 100 million article downloads by researchers worldwide in 2017 - 05 Jan 2018

The American Chemical Society's (ACS') Publications Division achieved a major milestone in 2017 surpassing 100 million full-text journal article downloads during the calendar year. This marks a new global usage record for the 51 peer-reviewed ACS journals, which publish research in chemistry and allied fields. Along with citations and other metrics, full-text usage provides insights on a journal's influence across the research landscape and reflects the importance of the science encompassed by its editorial scope.

The 100-millionth article download took place on Dec. 14, when a reader accessed a 2015 peer-reviewed article published in the journal ACS Nano. The novel interdisciplinary research, titled 'Trans-Blood Brain Barrier Delivery of Dopamine-Loaded Nanoparticles Reverses Functional Deficits in Parkinsonian Rats,' was co-authored by Seth, Chaturvedi, Gupta and colleagues, and was undertaken primarily at Council of Scientific & Industrial Research - Indian Institute of Toxicology Research, Lucknow, India. Since its publication, the article has garnered more than 30 citations and nearly 7,000 article views. It was also an ACS Editors' Choice selection. ACS Editors' Choice is a Society program offering free public access to published research based on recommendations by the scientific editors of ACS journals.

This online usage milestone achievement also underscores the value and importance of ACS journals to the global research community. Almost 50 percent of the Society's journal usage now originates from Asia, with China being a notable leader in both research submissions and reader engagement. With its broad international research audience in mind, ACS remains committed to expanding the Society's global reach and presence, and to providing cutting-edge research and information solutions in service to its membership and the worldwide scientific community.

The Society's most-highly accessed journal during 2017 was the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the organisation's flagship publication. ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, which features research from one of the fastest-growing fields in chemistry, emerged in 2017 as the second-most downloaded title within the ACS’ portfolio of preeminent research journals. Many ACS journals set all-time online usage records in 2017, demonstrating the widespread interest in, and broad global access of, ACS Publications.
