India Scope announces the launch of OntoSpeak—a free newsletter on taxonomies, thesauri and ontology - 05 Feb 2018

Scope e-Knowledge Center, a leading provider of specialized knowledge services for publishers and information providers, has announced the launch of a free newsletter—OntoSpeak, on Monday, February 5, 2018.

OntoSpeak will cover all the new developments related to content intelligence, information architecture, knowledge modeling and the interplay of knowledge models and technologies to enhance discoverability and user experience in both enterprises and the publishing industry.

Furthermore, OntoSpeak liberates publishers, information product managers and enterprise content managers from the need to follow multiple websites, blogs, or message boards every day. It will provide a single window view on the companies, events, emerging technologies, business intelligence and insights from thought leaders in the smart content space.

OntoSpeak will be the third niche and specialized newsletter service from Scope e-Knowledge Center, the other two being Knowledgespeak, a comprehensive news service focusing on the STM information industry, and Autospeak, which caters to the auto-parts aftermarket industry.

Speaking on OntoSpeak, Senthilvel Palanivelu (“Vel”), General Manager, Smart Content Services at Scope e-Knowledge Center said, “In the context of the growing interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence, identifying meaningful concepts and underlying semantic relationships and patterns are critical. Hence, knowledge models such as taxonomies, thesauri and ontologies are even more relevant than ever before”. He added, “We see a clear need for editorially curated content that will help readers to keep themselves informed with authoritative, precise and updated information from the knowledge modeling space”.

Tram Venkatraman, president of Scope e-Knowledge Center has this to say about OntoSpeak, “The experience we gained from publishing the Knowledgespeak and Autospeak newsletters and our editorial capabilities in delivering compelling content to our readers, has given us the confidence that we can provide unbiased content that will fill the knowledge gap in information life cycle management”.

German Prof. Rubén Martín and Prof. David A. Nicewicz join editorial board of Thieme chemistry journal SYNLETT - 05 Feb 2018

Professor Rubén Martín of the Institut Català d’Investigació Química (ICIQ, Spain) and Professor David A. Nicewicz of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA) have joined the SYNLETT editorial board. Published by Georg Thieme Verlag, SYNLETT offers chemists a publishing platform, with a strong focus on those just starting their professional careers.

Professor Rubén Martín sees organic synthesis’ greatest challenge in providing creative solutions to challenging problems while making them look easy. On the SYNLETT editorial board, he and Professor Nicewicz will be responsible for selecting groundbreaking papers for publication as SYNLETT Letters that meet these demands.

Over six months ago, the SYNLETT review process was extended to also include ‘crowd review’, for which article submissions are made available simultaneously to a selected group of experienced chemists who respond swiftly with their expert opinions. As a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University, Professor Nicewicz pioneered the use of ruthenium photoredox catalysis in combination with chiral amine organocatalysis to develop a general method for enantioselective aldehyde alkylation.

His research lab at the University of North Carolina, established in 2009, focuses on the development of new chemical reaction mechanisms based on organic photoredox catalysis. Professor Nicewicz has received a number of research awards, including the Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, the Amgen Young Investigator Award, and the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award. In 2012, he was a winner of the Thieme Chemistry Journals Award.

Among Professor Rubén Martín’s most important scientific achievements has been the ability to promote C–C bond-forming reactions via catalytic fixation of CO2 into organic matter en route to carboxylic acids. He received his PhD from the University of Barcelona before taking postdoctoral positions at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung (Max-Planck-Institut for Coal Research), Mülheim and der Ruhr (Germany), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). In January 2008, he returned to his native Spain, where he holds a professorship at the Institut Català d’Investigació Química (ICIQ). For his research, he received the Ramon y Cajal Award, the Sigma Aldrich RSEQ Young Research Investigator Award, and the OMCOS Award. He was also a winner of the Thieme Chemistry Journals Award in 2011. Together with Professor Nicewicz he is looking forward to contributing to the future development of SYNLETT.

SYNLETT reports the latest scientific developments in chemical synthesis. All published content is selected, reviewed, and edited by an editorial team of internationally renowned experts and scientific editors from Thieme. The subscription journal is published 20 times per year by Georg Thieme Verlag in printed and electronic format. Prior to print publication, the electronic version can be accessed online via Thieme E-Books & E-Journals, Thieme Group’s digital book and journal portal, which also includes primary research data. In 2015, Thieme introduced the annual SYNLETT Best Paper Award for the best article publication of the year.

US Dissertations from Philippines University now available globally - 05 Feb 2018

Dissertations from the Philippines are now available to researchers around the world through the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global™ database (PQDT), the largest database of graduate research collected from the world’s greatest universities.

As a member of the PQDT publishing program, Philippines Women’s University will contribute its graduate students’ dissertations and theses to the PQDT database. They’ll be visible to hundreds of thousands of PQDT users and broadly discoverable through citations in many major subject indexes.

The University will mark its centennial in 2019. Spearheaded by its dynamic president, Dr. Francisco B. Benitez and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Felina C. Young, the importance of research is stressed among faculty and students.

Originally created in 1939, PQDT archives and improves the discovery of graduate works from research universities around the world. Many dissertations in PQDT include multimedia components and accompanying datasets so researchers can access valuable content that goes far beyond text.

With 4.5 million dissertations and theses – 2.2 million in full text – PQDT is used by more than 3,000 universities, and now, Philippines Women’s University joins that list.

US Voila: Library and Archives Canada launches new National Union Catalogue, adds unique records to WorldCat - 05 Feb 2018

Library and Archives Canada has launched Voilà, Canada's new National Union Catalogue that will make the country's documentary heritage more widely accessible and available to library users in Canada and around the world through WorldCat.

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) catalogue data from Canadian libraries has been added to and will now be maintained in WorldCat, the most comprehensive union catalogue that represents the collections of hundreds of Canadian libraries and thousands of libraries around the world. Voilà is a subset of WorldCat created specifically to produce a Canadian view of the catalogue. As part of WorldCat, libraries in Canada have access to records of collections from libraries around the world; libraries around the world now have access to unique records from Canadian libraries.

Berthiaume introduced Voilà during the opening plenary session of the Ontario Library Association Super Conference 2018 on 1 February.

Later this year, LAC will begin implementing OCLC WorldShare Management Services (WMS) as its library services platform to manage and provide access to its own collection. WMS offers all of the applications needed to manage a library, including acquisitions, circulation, metadata, resource sharing, license management and a single-search discovery interface for library users. WMS also includes analytics tools and a range of standard reports, and allows library staff to develop their own analytics so they can better understand their activities and track key metrics over time.

LAC will maintain its LAC French-language name authority file using WMS. Once these authority records are migrated to the WMS platform late this summer, LAC will use WorldShare metadata management applications to create and update French name authorities. LAC French-language authority data will be integrated into OCLC's cataloguing services and also continue to be freely accessible through the Virtual International Authority File.

In addition to Library and Archives Canada, OCLC also partners with the national libraries of France, Germany, Japan, China, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and many others.
