US Wiley partners with Kudos to enable authors to generate Shareable PDFs for Wiley publications - 13 Jun 2018

Wiley, the global research and education company, has extended its partnership with Kudos, the award-winning platform for managing research dissemination, to enable authors to generate Shareable PDFs (S-PDFs) for their Wiley publications.

S-PDF makes it easy for researchers to create and share plain language summaries of their work, encapsulated in PDFs that can be uploaded to PDF-based sharing services. These overviews set work in a broader context and help a new audience to find and understand it. The Kudos platform then provides authors and participating publishers with metrics to enable like-for-like comparison of different sharing efforts, including the PDF-based sharing supported by S-PDF. This unique dataset makes it possible to understand whether engagement with research is more effectively driven by scholarly collaboration networks, social media, email, or traditional 'offline' activities such as conference posters and talks.

S-PDFs link readers through to full text on publisher websites, and dovetail neatly with other initiatives designed to help researchers improve copyright-compliant visibility for their work on scholarly collaboration networks and via other PDF-based sharing platforms and media. Since its launch in late 2017, S-PDF has doubled the number of publications being shared via Kudos and is substantially the most popular mechanism for sharing.

The Kudos shareable PDF is now available for any publisher who wishes to activate this feature, whether a current Kudos customer or not.

US Unbound Medicine and APSA launch ExPERT CME platform - 13 Jun 2018

Unbound Medicine, a provider of knowledge management solutions for healthcare, and the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA), the nation's largest professional organisation serving the pediatric surgical specialty, has launched the Continuing Medical Education (CME) platform for pediatric surgeons. Dubbed ExPERT - the Exam-based Pediatric surgery Educational Reference Tool - this resource allows surgeons to both stay up to date and obtain Continuous Certification credits anytime, anywhere on their device of choice.

Traditionally, surgeons met continuing education requirements by attending conferences and lectures. Studies have shown, however, that improved learning occurs when it is more active, episodic and related to clinical scenarios faced in daily practice. With this in mind, ExPERT was developed as a daily knowledge companion - providing continuing education opportunities at the same time as answering daily clinical questions.

A visionary team of APSA leaders working with experts from Unbound Medicine developed the new approach to surgical knowledge management. APSA member surgeons now author evidence-based, media-rich assessment content in uPub™ - Unbound's online authoring and content management system. After online editing and digital approval by an APSA Continuing Education Committee, the content is dynamically integrated with other content and published in the APSA Pediatric Surgery Library.

Updated regularly, ExPERT questions and assessments are augmented by surgical images, videos, and the underlying journal literature. ExPERT can be purchased separately or part of a suite in the APSA Pediatric Surgery Library. Annual meeting attendance CME is also managed within the same platform.

Netherland A growing number of libraries are increasingly cancelling subscriptions to full suite of publishers’ journals, opting for limited titles to save on costs - 13 Jun 2018

Florida State University has entered into negotiations with publisher Elsevier to see how it can resolve a pricing issue. Back in April, FSU announced that it would not renew a so-called 'big deal' with Elsevier in 2019, due to its high cost, and would instead subscribe to a subset of the most-needed journals. The university's move represents the latest example of academic libraries walking away from these comprehensive and expensive subscriptions, which include all or most of a publisher's catalogue, and instead signing up for la carte titles.

Over the last few years, around two dozen libraries in the US and Canada have cancelled at least one big deal with a publisher.

According to Joseph Esposito of Clarke & Esposito, a publishing consultancy firm, a key driving force behind the recent uptick of package cancellations is the negotiating leverage that libraries have gotten as a result of sites such as Sci-Hub that provide free, illegal access to journal articles.

According to Roy Ziegler, the associate dean of collections development at FSU Libraries, because FSU is still in negotiations with Elsevier, it is possible the situation might change before subscriptions lapse at the end of the year.

In 2015, the University of Montreal decided to take an empirical approach to its subscription negotiations. To do so, the university closely examined the university's collection of approximately 50,000 journals to see which titles were essential for their faculty and students. The analysis, which combined usage and citation statistics with faculty surveys, revealed that only around 11.6 percent to 36.9 percent of the titles in their big-deal bundles were indispensable.

Other Canadian universities have conducted similar analyses to determine whether to cut down their journal subscriptions. Some of those have ended in cancellations. The University of Calgary, for example, cut more than 1,000 titles between 2015 and 2016, primarily through unbundling two packages with Oxford University Press and Taylor & Francis, according to Thomas Hickerson, the university's vice-provost of libraries.

Driven by the European Commission's goal of making all scientific articles freely available by 2020, a number of countries have been pushing for more academic publishers to adopt so-called 'publish-and-read' models, which cover reading paywalled papers and publishing articles as 'gold' open access (immediately and freely available from the publisher) in one fee. While some of these negotiations have been successful, others have led to disagreements and stalled subscriptions.

US CLOCKSS announces preservation of Crossref metadata - 13 Jun 2018

The CLOCKSS Archive, the long-term preservation service for scholarly content, has announced that the CLOCKSS system will preserve all Crossref metadata.

The Crossref system contains bibliographic information for 97 million scholarly articles and book content, and growing by approximately 2 million each year. Crossref is the underlying infrastructure for several crucial features of scholarly publishing, such as reference linking, plagiarism checking, and provenance and license information.

According to Craig Van Dyck, CLOCKSS Executive Director, the Crossref metadata services deliver enormous value to scholarly communications. CLOCKSS will be an important component of protecting this value. For CLOCKSS, this signals that they will preserve not only journals and books, but also underlying metadata that users and services rely upon, as well as ancillary content such as supplementary material and other emerging forms of scholarly content.
