US Cell Press appoints Dr. John Pham as Editor-in-Chief of flagship life science journal Cell - 20 Jul 2018

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, announced that Cell Press has appointed molecular biologist Dr. John Pham as the next Editor-in-Chief of its flagship life science journal Cell. He will be the fourth person to hold the position in the journal's 44-year history.

Dr. Pham joined Cell Press in 2008 as a member of the Molecular Cell editorial team and became the journal's Editor-in-Chief in 2012. In this role, he has expanded his scientific expertise across the broad range of areas that Molecular Cell covers and has led initiatives on transparency and integrity, piloted new policies on data archiving, and tested different approaches to peer review.

He also plans for Cell and its editorial team to speak out with a stronger voice on behalf of the research community.

Dr. Pham's appointment comes as part of some broader changes in the leadership structure at Cell Press following the departure of former CEO and Cell Editor-in-Chief Dr. Emilie Marcus in February 2018. Over recent years the Cell Press family has expanded into the physical sciences with the launches of Chem, Joule, and iScience, and in April 2018 formed a joint publishing unit with The Lancet headed by Managing Director Anne Kitson.

US SAGE Publishing and The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine announce publishing partnership - 20 Jul 2018

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced a partnership with The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine to publish Gender and the Genome. A peer-reviewed, open access publication, the journal examines ways in which biological sex influences new science of the 21st century, particularly in the areas of technology and human life.

Comprising original research, reviews, and commentaries, Gender and the Genome covers topics such as sex-specific differences in genomic, cellular, tissue, and whole animal function; new life forms generated by synthetic biology; technological advances meant to enhance the function in humans; manufacture and usefulness of robotic devices; and commentaries by ethicists, theologians, anthropologists, epidemiologists, and sociologists/social scientists on the achievements of 21st century science.

The journal integrates the pivotal scientific developments of gender-specific medicine and the interpretation of the human genome. With an editorial board of renowned scholars from around the globe, Gender and the Genome engages the community of molecular biologists, engineers, ethicists, anthropologists, and legal experts in a dialogue about the nature and implications of 21st century technology.

The journal is also the official publication of the International Society for Gender Medicine and The Israeli Society for Gender-and Sex Conscious Medicine. It is supported in part by a grant from Isobel and Marvin Slomowitz.

US APA partners with Google Scholar to provide researchers and students with seamless access to scholarly content anywhere, on any device - 20 Jul 2018

The American Psychological Association has made it easier for researchers and students to access its journals using their institutional subscriptions even when they are not on campus. This new functionality is the result of a partnership with Google Scholar's Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) initiative, ensuring users a seamless experience for accessing APA's scholarly content anytime, anywhere.

CASA is an enhanced authentication service that builds upon Google Scholar's Subscriber Links service. Without CASA, Subscriber Links in Google Scholar search results are based on IP authentication, resulting in a frustrating user experience for off-campus researchers. With CASA integration, remote researchers have the same Subscriber Links and unrestricted access to APA's journal content as on-campus researchers, from anywhere in the world.

To take advantage of this new feature, an individual must first access the subscribed content via Google Scholar while on campus. When the user accesses Google Scholar off-campus, Google will remember the user's affiliation. CASA provides frictionless access to content, eliminating the need for a proxy server or other off-campus authentication systems.

German De Gruyter acquires Düsseldorf University Press - 20 Jul 2018

Academic publisher De Gruyter has acquired Düsseldorf University Press (DUP), effective January 1, 2018.

Düsseldorf University Press was founded in 2008 with the objective of publishing research from Heinrich-Heine-University (HHU) in Düsseldorf, Germany, and from other universities. Publications include scholarly monographs, collections and series to dissertations, Festschriften, textbooks and study materials as well as scientific guidebooks. DUP also offers early career researchers an opportunity to make their research results available to a larger spectrum of the general public.

Researchers - not only those at the Heinrich-Heine-University - will have a wide variety of options to present their content to the relevant parts of the scientific community using either DUP, De Gruyter or De Gruyter's publishing services division, Sciendo. Both legacy and open access publishing models are possible with all options.

De Gruyter will maintain a contact point for researchers in Düsseldorf and is creating a scientific advisory board to coordinate interaction between researchers and the publisher.

US Ambassador and Cengage enhance integration, providing instant access codes for digital content - 20 Jul 2018

Ambassador Education Solutions and Cengage have extended their partnership with an enhanced integration that simplifies the way students obtain and use access codes for digital course materials. Students can now redeem instant access codes for their Cengage Digital Courseware at the same time they receive all of their course materials from Ambassador, making the entire process more timely and seamless.

Traditionally, upon ordering digital course materials, students would receive further instructions and access codes to retrieve content and course resources. Ambassador took notice that a significant number of inquiries came from students who had misplaced their codes. Ambassador and Cengage recognised an opportunity to ease and expedite the process for students, giving them instant access to their digital course materials at the point of sale when course materials are top of mind.

Throughout Ambassador's partnership with Cengage, the two have customised print and digital course materials programs that put the right resources in students' hands, the right way, at the right price. Both companies are focused on accessibility and affordability, making sure students have the tools they need to succeed.

Netherland Complutense University of Madrid uses OCLC WorldShare Management Services as its new library services platform - 20 Jul 2018

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced that the Complutense University of Madrid (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) is now using OCLC's WorldShare Management Services as its library management system.

WorldShare Management Services (WMS) is the cloud-based library services platform that provides all of the applications needed to manage a library, including acquisitions, circulation, metadata, resource sharing, license management, and a discovery service for users. It also includes a range of reports that helps libraries better understand their activities and track key metrics over time.

The Complutense University of Madrid Library claims to be the largest academic library in Spain and one of the largest in Europe. On April 13, 1499, Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, Cardinal and Archbishop of Toledo as well as Regent of Castile established the Complutensis Universitas (Complutense University in Latin), through a Papal Bull granted by Pope Alexander VI. At present, it has 32 branches with 354 staff. The library collection consists of 3 million books, 126,000 e-books and 81,000 manuscripts, with special collections that date from the 15th century.

As part of the OCLC cooperative, libraries are using WMS to share bibliographic records, publisher and knowledge base data, vendor records, and more. With WorldCat at its foundation, WMS enables libraries to draw on the collaborative data for more efficient workflows. WMS also provides libraries with the unique opportunity to share innovation, applications, infrastructure, vision and success.
