UK Publons and SAGE Publishing partner to accelerate reviewer recognition across 1,000 Journals - 31 May 2018

Publons, a Clarivate Analytics company and the peer review platform for researchers, has announced an extended partnership with the academic publisher SAGE Publishing. Through Publons' Reviewer Recognition Service, SAGE will provide automated recognition to peer reviewers for up to 1,000 of their academic journals.

Integrating with all peer review systems, Publons' Reviewer Recognition Service provides instant recognition for reviewers contributions, in full compliance with journal review policies. SAGE authors and editors will have access to Publons' tools and insights designed to help them understand and serve their peer review community more effectively.

Since the pilot began in June 2016, more than 30,000 SAGE peer reviewers have recorded more than 80,000 reviews on Publons. The significant uptake demonstrates the growing relevance of peer review as a marker of researchers' esteem and subject-matter expertise.

Reviewers for SAGE journals will also benefit from Publons' Historic Review Upload feature. This offers increased visibility and recognition for all reviews, no matter when they were performed. This unique capability streamlines the recognition process for past review activity, adding historic reviews in bulk to researchers' Publons profiles. Evidence of all peer review contributions can be downloaded from a reviewers' Publons profile and used as evidence of their service and standing for promotion and funding applications.

The information has been reviewed and aligned with WHO guidance.

For health professionals located outside affected regions, online learning courses from BMJ Learning and BMJ OnExamination offer guidance on how to recognise who is most at risk and how to manage suspected cases of Ebola in primary care.

US The Optical Society to launch new gold OA journal, OSA Continuum - 31 May 2018

The Optical Society (OSA) has announced that it will begin publishing a new open access journal, OSA Continuum, in September 2018. The new Journal will accept contributions from the broad optics and photonics community and will provide rapid dissemination of research articles meeting OSA's high standards of accuracy, scientific rigour, and presentation standards without judgment of impact or significance. In addition to traditional research, OSA Continuum will consider negative results and reproducibility studies - the first journal in OSA's portfolio to provide a venue for these types of articles.

OSA Continuum will open for submissions in mid-June. Authors may submit directly to the Journal or easily transfer manuscripts from other OSA journals - a task that will be made easier by using OSA Publishing's new universal manuscript template and that will eliminate the need for reformatting. OSA Continuum will also be the first in OSA's journal portfolio to introduce an option for transparent peer review, where authors and reviewers may choose to publish the peer review correspondence (reviewer comments, decision letters and author response) with the final article.

Takashige Omatsu, Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, and Director, Molecular Chirality Research Center at Chiba University, Japan, has been selected as the inaugural editor-in-chief of the Journal. Omatsu's approach for OSA Continuum's editorial board is that it consists of active researchers representing the Journal's broad topical scope and geographic reach. He will be supported by deputy editor, Erik Vartiainen, Associate Professor, School of Engineering Science at Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland.

Article publication in this Gold Open-Access journal will be supported by Article Processing Charges, though the fee will be waived for all articles published in 2018. After the introductory period, OSA Continuum will offer discounts and waivers to authors from 100 qualifying low- and middle-income countries.

US California Digital Library and Dryad partner to advance data publishing - 31 May 2018

University of California's California Digital Library (CDL) and Dryad Digital Repository have partnered to address researcher needs and lead an open, community-supported initiative in research data curation and publishing. This partnership is aimed at driving adoption of curated, accessible data publishing in the research community and will leverage the capabilities of both institutions and publishers to better align data publishing within researcher workflows.

The alliance pairs the strengths and assets of each organisation together to form this unique partnership: CDL's knowledge of institutional needs and technical capabilities with Dryad's strong relationships with publishers and well-established name within the research community. They will jointly work to develop the technical advancements needed to make data sharing, curation, discovery, and reuse a standard part of research practice across disciplines.

CDL and Dryad will convene institutions to gather input on institutional infrastructure needs for data publishing. They will also modernise the process of information exchange between the data publishing and journal publishing with enhanced publisher integrations. These developments mark the beginning of an extensive effort to better serve researcher needs.
