German Springer Nature announces new eBook collection - Intelligent Technologies and Robotics - 13 Sep 2018

Open research publisher Springer Nature has announced a specially-tailored eBook collection focusing on the fields of intelligent technologies and robotics. This package focuses on interdisciplinary and dynamic areas of engineering which have emerged from the more traditional disciplines of automation and control. The decision to create this new collection reflects the increasing demand for academic books from progressive research areas that are already having an impact in society.

Monographs, proceedings, reference works, handbooks and textbooks will make up the new collection. Topics covered will encompass intelligent transportation, smart farming, the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities and homes, humanoids, Industry 4.0 and medical robotics. Around 375 titles will be included in the first collection, available in 2019.

The Intelligent Technologies and Robotics eBook collection complements Springer Nature’s established portfolio of 20 English language eBooks collections in all areas of science, technology, medicine, humanities and the social sciences. Seven different German language eBook collections are also available.

US Clarivate Analytics announces winner of 2018 Eugene Garfield Award - 13 Sep 2018

Clarivate Analytics, a leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has announced the recipient of the 2018 Eugene Garfield Award for Innovation in Citation Analysis at the 23rd Science and Technology Indicators Conference in Leiden, Netherlands. Launched in 2017, this award recognises scientists working on innovative approaches in citation analysis that improve how they measure the impact of scientific research - also known as scientometrics - a field in which Garfield was a pioneer.

This year’s recipient is Orion Penner, researcher and Ambizione Fellow in the Chair of Innovation and IP Policy within the College of Management of Technology at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne. Originally trained in physics and complexity science, Penner applies tools from data science, economics and other social sciences to publication and patent databases to ask interesting questions about research and innovation as a system and how research careers evolve. Last year he was selected by the Swiss National Science Foundation for the prestigious Ambizone program, one of the most competitive funding schemes in Switzerland.

Penner’s current research program focuses on researcher careers, in particular how success is influenced by the decisions individual researchers make in allocating research effort across multiple topics, or in selecting a new job or mentor. His findings speak directly to the present discussion surrounding the sustainability of the current academic career system.

In studying researcher careers Penner has pioneered the rigorous application of various natural language processing techniques, including topic models, to a variety of textual data arising from researcher careers. Through this award, Penner will extend those techniques to the problem of identifying individual publications that have played an unusually pivotal role in scientific discourse.

Penner will receive $25,000 of prize money and access to Web of Science data, the publisher-neutral citation index. Penner will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the prestigious Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), which was originally established in 1960 by Eugene Garfield. The ISI focuses on the development of existing and new scientometric approaches.

Scientometric data not only provides researchers with insights about the impact of their work but they also help funding bodies and universities assess the impact of their research investments.

US Publisher Promotion & Fulfillment provides subscription management solutions for five new publisher partners - 13 Sep 2018

Publisher Promotion & Fulfillment (PPF), a division of EBSCO Information Services, has partnered with five subscription management clients over the past year, providing various combinations of fulfilment, customer service, trials, renewals, reporting, marketing, distribution and ecommerce solutions.

PPF coordinated a year-long journals marketing campaign on behalf of Springer Publishing Company to promote its Essential Nursing Collection across a variety of market segments. With more than 20 journals in the nursing, behavioural and health sciences, and medical fields, PPF now works with Springer Publishing Company to provide a suite of back office services that includes coordination with members of the Academy of Neonatal Nursing.

Similarly, Human Kinetics began its relationship with PPF as an InfoShare client, a service designed to improve exposure at industry conferences and events. Promotions were expanded to include a year-long journals campaign, leading to subscription management covering almost 30 titles in the field of physical activity and health. Back office services include coordination with nineteen societies worldwide.

PPF’s partnership with Water Environment Federation (WEF) began with the successful implementation of a trial book fulfilment program to convert print subscribers to online access. WEF’s affiliation with the American Public Health Association, a long-time PPF subscription management client, helped pave the way for PPF to provide services for WEF’s Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater.

Grand Valley State University, publisher of The Foundation Review, is one of a growing number of university presses serviced by PPF, joining the University of South Carolina’s National Resource Center and Rockefeller University Press for subscription management solutions, along with PPF marketing client Penn State University Press.

PPF has begun working with Sagamore Publishing to provide back office services for eight journals in the disciplines of health, recreation, facility management, parks administration, leisure, and education.

Joining forces with PPF allows publishers to focus on editorial content, as they benefit from over forty years of experience with promoting and managing institutional subscriptions. A division of EBSCO, PPF is uniquely positioned to offer publishers the stability and diversified resources of a large, global company, while also offering the personal attention and responsiveness of a small, privately held business.

The peer review correspondence includes editorial decision letters with reviewer comments and author responses. Reviewer names will remain anonymous. The first issue of OSA Continuum provides an example of the transparent peer review option.

The premier issue OSA Continuum covers topics such as digital holography, surface plasmon waves, penhole lens imaging, scattering, and metamaterials. The following papers represent some of the research highlights from this issue and can be accessed online in the OSA Publishing platform.
