German Swiss Library Service Platform to base new national library services on Ex Libris Alma Platform and Primo Solution - 12 Oct 2018

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has announced that the Swiss Library Service Platform A.G. (SLSP) has opted to base Switzerland's new national library service for academic universities on the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform, with the Ex Libris Primo® solution providing discovery and delivery services to users. The new platform will enable academic libraries across Switzerland to collaborate, improve services and efficiencies, reduce silos, and eliminate duplication of effort.

The decision will see over 600 libraries across 130 institutions move from the Aleph®, Intota®, and Virtua library systems to the Alma platform and from the Summon®, SFX, and EBSCO Discovery Service™ tools to the Primo solution.

SLSP was formed by the merger of the six library networks that serve the Swiss academic community in the German, French, and Italian language regions. With the new library service center, the current cooperation within each language region will be raised to the national level, the duplication of work and library resources across the country will be reduced, and institutions that were previously served by smaller networks will continue to benefit from state-of-the-art services in the long term.

German Knowledge Unlatched presents central research and accounting tool for researchers and libraries - 12 Oct 2018

Knowledge Unlatched (KU), the central platform for the sustainable funding of Open Access (OA) models, is presenting its central database for financing OA books. It enables numerous publishers to make their offerings transparent, and scientists and libraries to find publication partners for book projects.

Suitable offers can be found on the basis of more than 20 criteria, such as the subject area, the services of publishers, forms of licensing and publication costs. KU Open Funding makes it possible to contact the publisher directly. If the latter accepts the manuscript for publication after quality control, KU organises the approval and handling of payment with the library.

More than 20 publishers including Berghahn, Duke University Press, Intellect, Michigan University Press, Taylor & Francis, transcript and Ubiquity Press are already participating with their OA offerings. Publishers, scientists and libraries can register for KU Open Funding on the portal free of charge. The model is financed by a commission, which is due upon conclusion of a publication contract between the scholar and the publisher. KU Open Funding is the first of its kind worldwide.

German ScienceOpen and Carl Hanser Verlag partner to highlight materials research - 12 Oct 2018

Research network ScienceOpen and Carl Hanser Verlag have announced a partnership that integrates all of Hanser's journal content and highlights the International Journal of Materials Research (IJMR) in the ScienceOpen discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.

The International Journal of Materials Research (IJMR) publishes original, high quality experimental and theoretical papers and reviews on basic and applied research in the field of materials science and engineering, with focus on synthesis, processing, constitution, and properties of all classes of materials. Edited by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde e.V. (DGM) and co-edited by Société Française de Métallurgie et de Matériaux (SF2M) and Swiss Association for Materials Science and Technology (SVMT), all articles submitted to the journal are published in English language.

ScienceOpen's collection of articles promotes this published content within the larger context of over 46 million academic articles and records on the platform. Indexing the International Journal of Materials Research (IJMR) with ScienceOpen enhances the discoverability of Hanser's specialised publications in the discipline of materials science through the customised search engine on the ScienceOpen platform. All articles on ScienceOpen can be sorted and filtered to find relevant research. Furthermore, by using the post-publication peer review feature on ScienceOpen, researchers can keep the scientific debate about their research going long after publication.

This partnership contextualises the International Journal of Materials Research (IJMR) within the broader research environment on ScienceOpen for the purpose of enhancing the visibility and impact of scientific research in the field of materials science.

UK Kudos launches new research project to identify opportunities for research communication services - 12 Oct 2018

Kudos, the award-winning service for maximising the reach and impact of research publications, has announced the launch of a major new research project to explore how, why and when researchers communicate about their work ('upstream' of traditional publication points); the broader context within which they do this; and anticipated future changes. Findings will assist publishers in identifying new opportunities for mapping their skills and capabilities onto emerging researcher needs.

With over 250,000 users and partnerships with over 100 publishers, institutions, technology providers and societies, Kudos is well-placed to facilitate such research and to help its partners ensure their strategies are shaped by the 'big picture' of sector trends as well as any nuances specific to their own customer base. Past research projects facilitated by Kudos include studies of authors' use of scholarly collaboration networks, researchers' wider dissemination and reputation activities, and the effect of dissemination efforts on publication usage.

Project partners benefit from opportunities to suggest content for the research instruments, and access to results data and analysis including custom findings and recommendations based on specific respondent groups. To register their interest, potential project partners can contact charlie.a.rapple@growkudos.com, by the end of October 2018.
