UK Springer Nature sets out new approach to accelerate transition to OA - 08 May 2019

Springer Nature is seeking views on a new approach aimed at accelerating the transition to open access. In a recently published blog, Springer Nature sets out a new approach with the goal of increasing the demand from authors to immediately publish their research open access (OA) and growing the supply of journals able to publish OA, potentially enabling even highly selective journals such as Nature to transition to OA.

It is expected that this new approach would see publishers move from generally being passive enablers of open access to being active drivers of the transition to OA. Views are being sought on the proposed new publishing standard - Transformative Publishing - which encompasses two main elements: ‘Transformative’ read and publish deals and Transformative journals.

Transformative read and publish deals are already proven to accelerate the transition to OA by significantly increasing OA take up. Transformative Publishers would commit to offer them where institutions, consortia or research funding bodies wish to use them and to scale them when in place.

Publishers would commit to adapt the hybrid and subscription journals that they own so that, by complying with the required standard and set of requirements, Transformative journals would be 100 percent OA for primary research articles at the end of the transition.

Ultimately, transformative publishers would move to being at the forefront of measuring, reporting on, and promoting the benefits of OA and be required to commit to continuously increase the average level of OA take-up across its whole journal portfolio, at least at the rate of funding from research funding bodies, institutions and consortia.

Switzerland Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH sign joint venture to develop dermatology app - 08 May 2019

Medical and scientific publishing company Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH have recently signed a joint venture contract. The purpose of the cooperation is the long-term, global commercialisation and further development of the ‘dermakonsil’ app.

Karger will contribute its competences in content management and publishing while Derma.one will take responsibility for the technical and medical know-how. In a first phase, the commercialisation of the app will focus on the German-speaking area. After the launch of the English version of the app, the reach will be expanded to countries like the USA, the UK and Australia.

‘dermakonsil’ is a digital handbook for dermatologists when diagnosing skin diseases. Since 2014 the app has been developed by a team around Professor Dr. Alexander Navarini and Vahid Djamei and assists dermatologists in differential diagnosis, evaluation of disease state, and therapy. ’dermakonsil’ is a learning tool that quickly adjusts to the personal needs of the user. Dermatologists can use this independent academic resource as an app on a mobile phone as well as via a desktop application.

US International Cannabinoid Research Society names Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research as its official journal - 08 May 2019

Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers has announced that the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) has named Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research (CCR) as its official journal. The ICRS is a foremost international society spearheading scientific research in all fields of cannabinoids, ranging from biochemical, chemical, and physiological studies of the endogenous cannabinoid system to studies on the misuse potential of recreational cannabis. In addition to being a source for unbiased information on cannabis and cannabinoids, the main role of the ICRS is to provide an essential forum for researchers to meet and discuss their scientific goals, aspirations, and achievements and for dissemination of evidence-based information on the endocannabinoid system.

The collaboration between the ICRS and Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research is one that will not only benefit the scientific reach of cannabis, cannabinoids, and the endocannabinoid system, but will also greatly benefit this community of international researchers.

Dr. Piomelli and the leadership of Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research will work even more closely with international cannabis and cannabinoid research experts to enhance ICRS and its mission, the Journal, and the field.

Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research also works in collaboration with the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines (IACM) and Fundación CANNA.
