IOP Publishing, the publishing company of the Institute of Physics, has announced that the first content has been published in three new additions to its journal portfolio - Electronic Structure, JPhys Energy and Plasma Research Express. The three journals were launched to cater to the needs of specific research communities.

The first issue of Electronic Structure contains articles from six countries using both experimental and computational techniques, covering topics from 2D materials to magnetism. Among the articles is one co-authored by editorial board member Prof. Steffen Duhm, from Soochow University in China.

JPhys Energy's first issue features papers by teams from China, Australia, Brazil, the USA, and the UK. Prof. John Irvine, from the University of St Andrews (UK) serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.

Reflecting the journal's intended reach and inclusive editorial policy, the first content in Plasma Research Express includes papers from Brazil, Russia, the USA, Ukraine, Romania and Belgium, which collectively cover a mixture of experimental and theoretical work on several representative topics in plasma science. Prof. Hae June Lee, from Pusan National University, Republic of Korea, serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.

UK Chemistry Central Journal to be renamed as BMC Chemistry, will join the BMC series as its first chemistry title - 29 Nov 2018

Chemistry Central Journal, a journal that has served the chemistry community as a trusted resource for more than a decade, will be renamed to BMC Chemistry in January 2019. The journal will join the BMC series as its first chemistry title.

Chemistry Central Journal launched in 2007, as the flagship of BMC's spin-off imprint, Chemistry Central. This was at a formative era for OA publishing and Chemistry Central Journal was a true pioneer in open chemistry. Over its first decade, Chemistry Central Journal published over a thousand fully OA papers, and in 2017 alone, papers published in the journal were accessed more than half a million times.

The scholarly publishing world has changed a lot since 2007. There are many more journals, many more ways to publish papers, data and research, and while there is still a lot to do, OA continues to grow even outside of the disciplines where it first found a home. Chemistry Central Journal is published by Springer Nature, as part of the BMC brand of OA journals, and is leading the expansion of BMC into the physical sciences.

As BMC Chemistry, the journal will further strengthen the BMC series footprint in the physical sciences by publishing quality articles and by pushing the boundaries of open chemistry.

Its new home, the BMC series, is a collection of high-quality, peer-reviewed journals covering all scientific and clinical disciplines, focusing on the needs of the research communities which they serve. It will share the BMC series ethos of presenting quality research to the community, with an emphasis on transparency and openness in both publishing and science. As such, BMC Chemistry will be well placed to continue its mission into the next decade and beyond - as a true pioneer of open chemistry.

BMC Chemistry aspires to contribute towards Springer Nature's Grand Challenge Programme with a focus on sustainability, climate change and food-energy-water nexus by facilitating research across a wide range of chemistry disciplines.

On a technical level, the journal's history will continue in its refreshed form as BMC Chemistry. The journal's rigorous peer-review and complete publication history will remain part of the journal - all previous papers will remain part of the journal and continue to be permanently and freely available to all. The journal will continue to be indexed as normal in Scopus, SCIE, PubMed and others. The journal's impact factor will continue, but will transition over a three-year period to the new title.

The journal is supported by an international Editorial Advisory Board of senior scientists and researchers that is chaired by Professor R. Stephen Berry, one of the founders and current Editor-in-Chief for Chemistry Central Journal, who is a highly respected thought leader in chemistry from the University of Chicago.

US OCLC awarded IMLS funds to expand its National Leadership Grant project - 29 Nov 2018

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has received a $249,710 award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to expand its National Leadership Grant project, Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces, to more small and rural public libraries across the US.

In the first two years of the project, OCLC partnered with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) to guide and support 15 small public libraries in 12 states as they applied principles of design thinking to create space for social, active learning at the library. Participating libraries completed an online training program led by WebJunction, OCLC's free online learning community for library staff; and received a $5,000 sub-grant for materials, equipment and furnishings for their reimagined space. One of the libraries, Madison County Public Library, has been recognised as Best Small Library in America 2018 by Library Journal; renovations to the library were supported by the Smart Spaces program.

A self-paced course, Making Space for Active Learning, and the libraries' transformation stories are now available on WebJunction.

The application period will open in January for small US public libraries interested in becoming a Smart Spaces library.
