German Springer Nature’s iversity expands its product portfolio with new media format, Espresso Courses - 14 May 2019

Springer Nature’s online learning platform iversity has expanded its product portfolio with a new format called Espresso Courses. These courses focus on ‘point of need learning’, and are designed to impart knowledge in a fast and efficient way. iversity’s existing formats PRO courses and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course), on the other hand, aim to support continuous learning. The first ten Espresso Courses cover a broad range of topics from agile methods and lean management to business communication and marketing to climate change.

Some Espresso courses are being offered in English, while others are available in German. The courses take learners quickly and efficiently through a specific topic; thereby addressing specific learning needs. This new format is based on the principles of microlearning, which helps learners acquire knowledge through small chunks of information.

Each online course comes with a downloadable Easy Guide which summarises the key facts of the topic. Upon completion of the course, learners can also receive a certificate of participation. The courses are taught by professors from renowned universities or by experienced subject matter experts - many of whom are also Springer book authors.

Some of the video-based courses are created in parallel with a book, and are used to illustrate information, examples and processes covered in the book. The compact Espresso Courses are available at a price range from 29 to 49 Euros. Some courses are funded by the course partners, and learners can access them free of charge as open access espresso MOOCs.

Similar to the Springer Campus Bachelor's and Master's correspondence courses, iversity’s PRO courses, MOOCs and Espresso Courses present the potential to further explore a wide range of new products and features.

Belgium European University Association releases its Second Big Deals Survey Report - 14 May 2019

The European University Association (EUA) has released its Second Big Deals Survey Report. This updated mapping of major scholarly publishing contracts in Europe comes at a time when the sector is undergoing substantial changes.

The survey, conducted in 2017-2018, gathers data from 31 consortia covering an unprecedented 167 contracts with five major publishers: Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, Wiley and American Chemical Society. Readers will discover that the total costs reported by the participating consortia exceed one billion euros for periodicals, databases, e-books and other resources – mainly to the benefit of large, commercial scholarly publishers.

This report provides an overview of Big Deal negotiations across Europe, focusing on topics such as the organisation of negotiations, provisions on Open Access and transparency of contracts and costs. It also offers information on consortia and focuses specifically on periodical Big Deal contracts with the five large publishers selected for this survey. Finally, the report addresses the costs of Big Deal contracts, offering conclusions and policy recommendations on the negotiation of Big Deal contracts.

The EUA Big Deals Survey contributes to increasing the transparency of contract costs and conditions, to identifying the main challenges in the scholarly publication system and to supporting a variety of institutions in becoming more knowledgeable and actively engaged in negotiations with scientific publishers.

The report complements the 2017-2018 EUA Open Access Survey Results, assembled in parallel and focusing on the institutional dimension of Open Access to scholarly publications at universities.
