UK Invitation to complete survey on how archives and special collection repositories are being cited in publications - 04 Apr 2018

Research Libraries UK, in partnership with The National Archives and Jisc, have recently commissioned TheResearchBase to undertake a commissioned study into the citation of archive and special collection holding repositories within academic publications ('Citation Capture').

As a part of this important research, a survey is being undertaken of archivists, librarians, publishers, and academics regarding how repositories are cited within academic publications. All publishers whose outputs include reference to archives and special collections within academic research are encouraged to participate in this survey.

The survey asks participants what information repositories currently gather regarding their users; what guidance is given to users regarding how they should cite a repository within a publication; whether repositories actively survey citations and the use to which this information is put; and the appetite and advantages of establishing a more uniform system of citation to archival and special collection repositories.

US California Digital Library joins Royal Society Open Access Membership - 04 Apr 2018

The California Digital Library (CDL) recently signed on to the Royal Society Open Access Membership, an arrangement under which UC-affiliated authors (from any UC campus, UC Office of the President, or Lawrence Berkeley Lab) are entitled to a 25% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APCs) paid to Royal Society for open access publication during 2018.

Royal Society's journal content includes several traditionally subscription journals, for which authors may choose to pay an APC to make their article Open Access, as well as two full Open Access journals, for which an APC is required for publication. The discount applies to APCs paid for either type of journal, and there is no limit to the number of times this discount may be used throughout the year.

Authors wishing to publish Open Access and take advantage of this discount should submit their articles to Royal Society journals as normal. During the post-acceptance process, the author should indicate that they wish to pay an APC for open access publication (this will be required for full Open Access journals). Then, the author should identify themselves as an affiliate of a member institution to have the discount applied to their payment.

Note that authors are not required to pay for Open Access publication in Royal Society's traditionally subscription journals, and the decision to publish OA will not have any impact on the editorial process. Authors who do not wish to pay for OA publication may still follow the normal submission process.

Additional information on the Royal Society publishing discount is available on UC's Office of Scholarly Communication website.

US RedShelf and McGraw-Hill Education announce new access agreement - 04 Apr 2018

Digital learning materials provider RedShelf and McGraw-Hill Education, a top learning science company, has announced a new agreement that will help expand their work together on inclusive access programs that increase the affordability of course materials and enhance student engagement. Inclusive access programs allow students to have digital course materials automatically delivered to them on the first day of class or earlier, and significantly reduce costs for students.

While RedShelf and McGraw-Hill Education have been working closely together since 2014, this agreement formalises the collaboration between RedShelf's inclusive access platform offering and McGraw-Hill Education's affordable digital learning solutions, including McGraw-Hill Connect®, that have been shown to improve student outcomes. As inclusive access gains momentum throughout the higher ed community, the strengthening of this relationship will provide more affordable and more engaging experiences for students.

Through this collaboration, RedShelf will integrate McGraw-Hill Connect courseware and content into participating colleges' learning management systems and other core platforms. In addition to providing more affordable, digital course materials, RedShelf and McGraw-Hill Education are using teaching and learning data to improve student performance and engagement.

US CCC launches task workflow tool, Content Kanban - 04 Apr 2018

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global leader in content management, copyright licensing, discovery and delivery solutions, has announced the launch of task workflow tool, Content Kanban. Used in tandem with the Ixxus Publishing Platform (IPP), or as a standalone tool, Content Kanban provides intuitive content task tracking and management capabilities that streamline development, foster collaboration, and keep projects on schedule.

Content Kanban is available now to new and existing Ixxus users, whether as part of IPP or as a professional services engagement with Ixxus.

US EMBO Press, Rockefeller University Press and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press join forces to launch new research journal - Life Science Alliance - 04 Apr 2018

EMBO Press, Rockefeller University Press, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press have announced the launch of Life Science Alliance, a new global, open access, editorially independent, peer-reviewed journal committed to rapid, fair and transparent publication of valuable research from across the life sciences. Manuscripts can be submitted to Life Science Alliance directly or by seamless transfer without reformatting from nine partner journals: The EMBO Journal, EMBO Reports, Molecular Systems Biology, EMBO Molecular Medicine, Journal of Cell Biology, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Journal of General Physiology, Genes & Development, and Genome Research.

The alliance between three distinguished academic publishing houses offers authors a new and attractive choice among not-for-profit, open access journals. Authors of papers transferred to Life Science Alliance with or without referee reports are given a firm commitment prior to transfer. Timely editorial decisions are made through collaborative consultation between the editorial team and leading academic scientists. No more than one round of experimental revision will be requested.

Papers published in Life Science Alliance meet the high scientific and editorial standards established by the alliance partners for new results. Life Science Alliance welcomes important confirmatory, negative, and refuting data, as well as community resources such as datasets, screens, and new methods. To increase the reproducibility of results and stimulate data sharing, Life Science Alliance encourages authors to publish source data alongside each figure.

US State University of New York selects Ex Libris Alma library services platform and Ex Libris Primo discovery and delivery solution - 04 Apr 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the State University of New York (SUNY) has chosen the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution to be used by 61 libraries of the university system. The next-generation Alma platform will replace the Ex Libris Aleph® integrated library system, while the Primo solution will be implemented in place of the various discovery layers that have been in use up to now, including the EBSCO Discovery Service.

The SUNY Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS) sought a single library system to replace all of the disparate systems in use across the university. Moving to the Alma platform will increase efficiency and maximise the use of resources; libraries will have access to cross-system analytics, which will facilitate data-driven decisions; and the cloud-based Alma solution will provide opportunities for integration with a variety of other university services, such as student information systems and financial systems.

SUNY faculty, staff, and students will benefit from the easy-to-use, customisable Primo interface to discover and obtain materials from the collections of all SUNY libraries.
