US Elsevier and Netelabs in deal to co-develop new tools for research evaluation - 05 Jun 2019

Information analytics business Elsevier, and Netelabs, a research unit within Net ESolutions Corporation (NETE), have signed an agreement to partner in co-developing new tools for research evaluation. Through the collaboration, data, digital design and product development from both organisations will be combined into larger and improved information systems supporting researchers, institutions, funders and policymakers.

The driving project for this ambitious partnership is ERNIE (Enhanced Research Network Informatics Environment), a knowledge platform focused on using multidimensional research metadata to document research accomplishments, influence and impact. ERNIE incorporates principles and tools of data science, network analysis and cloud computing to enable large scale studies in research evaluation. ERNIE is presently supported by Phase II of a Fast Track SBIR Award from the National Institutes of Health National Institute on Drug Abuse. Elsevier has committed additional resources to the project.

Going forward, ERNIE will be developed using Elsevier's Scopus data and Elsevier sister company LexisNexis' IP Data Direct patent data as its backbone.

UK Web of Science Group launches new publisher analytics reports - 05 Jun 2019

The Web of Science Group, part of Clarivate Analytics, has launched its first range of analytical reports aimed specifically for academic publishers. The ready-to-use reports provide a snapshot of journals’ performance and inform competitor analysis. They will help publishers to easily plan robust, evidence-based strategies, based on the publisher-independent, editorially curated data in the Web of Science, combined with data from InCites analytics and where appropriate, ScholarOne.

The new reports include: Journal Performance Analytics Report, Publishing Output Analysis, Subject Area/Opportunity Analysis and Funding/ Institutional/ Regional Analyses.

Journal Performance Analytics Report provides publishers with a comprehensive summary of journal publication performance in Web of Science Core Collection (including the Emerging Sources Citation Index) over a defined period. With the option to compare journals, the report includes information on publication output, Journal Impact Factor trends, contributing countries, organisations and funders, and article-level citation analysis.

The Publishing Output Analysis report allows publishers to bring together editorial and publication data in a single analysis to uncover what drives their journal’s publication impact and performance. The report benchmarks a journal’s published papers and explores the fate of the papers it rejects. It is designed to identify opportunities for new journals and journal sections and to help journals stakeholders better understand the influence of editorial decisions.

The Subject Area report offers a complete overview of specific subject area(s), including hot topics, key journals and publishers within the field, emerging trends and topics, key authors, institutions and funders.

Based on data from the InCites Benchmarking & Analytics package, the Funding/ Institutional/ Regional Analyses reports provide snapshots of contributions to journals from funding agencies, authors and their institutional and regional affiliation, giving publishers quick insights into what influences their content pipeline.

Underlying datasets are included with each report for further analysis, and tailored options to suit specific business needs are available.

Netherland Dutch universities organise second edition of Digital Society Conference - 05 Jun 2019

After last year's success, the fourteen Dutch universities, united in the Association of Universities in the Netherlands, have announced the return of the Digital Society Conference.

Scheduled for November 26, 2019, the Digital Society Conference will focus on Digital Participation. Leading professors of the Digital Society Programme and special guests will explain and demonstrate the latest digital trends concerning this theme.

Digitalisation offers many opportunities, but also comes with risks. The organisers are inviting feedback on how everyone can benefit from digitalisation. The conference seeks to connect citizens, researchers, policy advisors, civil society organisations, industry and entrepreneurs during the conference in order to work together towards a common goal: to create a better digital society which is beneficial for all.

US Stakeholders across all scientific disciplines urged to make data open and accessible - 05 Jun 2019

Institutions, science funders, data repositories, publishers, researchers and scientific societies from all scientific disciplines must work together to ensure all scientific data are easy to find, access and use, according to a new commentary in Nature by members of the Enabling FAIR Data Steering Committee.

The Enabling FAIR Data project, convened by AGU and funded by Arnold Ventures, brought together hundreds of partners from across the geoscience community to make geoscience data more open and accessible. The scientific data underlying published studies is often difficult to find and access, potentially hindering new scientific research, according to Shelley Stall, senior director of data leadership at AGU and program manager for the project.

The Enabling FAIR Data project worked over 18 months to adopt a set of principles to ensure data connected to scholarly publications are FAIR — findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. More than 100 repositories, communities, societies, institutions, infrastructures, individuals and publishers in the Earth, space and environmental sciences have already signed onto the Enabling FAIR Data Commitment Statement for handling data based on these principles.

In the new commentary in the journal Nature, the Enabling FAIR Data Steering Committee is calling on the entire scientific community across all scientific disciplines to sign onto this commitment statement. The group also lays out a set of changes necessary to shift research culture more broadly.

The Enabling FAIR data project demonstrated stakeholders can make significant progress by working together across traditional boundaries of publishing, repository curation and geoscience disciplines, said Lynn Yarmey, director of community development for the Research Data Alliance, a partner organization in the Enabling FAIR Data project and project manager for the effort.

Rather than coming up with a single solution, the Enabling FAIR Data project realized all stakeholders needed to adjust their data practices together, with the biggest opportunities for advancement coming from alignment across publishers and data repositories, said Yarmey, who is a member of the steering committee and a co-author of the new commentary.

Supporting data for only about 20 percent of published papers are available in scientific repositories where they can be easily accessed and used. The rest of these data are scattered with varying levels of management, curation and openness. Data are often left sitting on a researcher’s computer or stored on old disks or on paper. Limited funding and support for support for sharing and curating data have added to the challenges.

Changing how data are handled by working with FAIR-aligned repositories will open up new scientific opportunities, according to the authors of the commentary. For example, weather prediction can benefit from accessing meteorological and other data from around the world, and observational Earth science data gathered today could be used by researchers decades from now in new types of research yet to be developed.

The Enabling FAIR Data project began in 2017 and involved participation from more than 300 stakeholders across the Earth, space and environmental sciences. Key partners on the project included publishers, repositories, data communities, librarians, data infrastructure providers and others. These include Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), Research Data Alliance (RDA), Science, Nature, Proceedings of the National Academies (PNAS), National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), AuScope, Australian Research Data Commons, Center for Open Science and other groups.

Belgium cOAlition S appoints Jisc expert, Neil Jacobs, as interim programme manager - 05 Jun 2019

Neil Jacobs, head of open science and research lifecycle at Jisc, has been appointed as interim programme manager for the international consortium of research funders, cOAlition S.

Neil Jacobs will take forward the work of the consortium, Plan S, to help accelerate the transition to full and immediate open access (OA). Plan S requires that scientific publications that result from research funded by public grants must be published in compliant open access journals or platforms.

Neil has been actively supporting open access for more than 15 years, the majority of that time at Jisc, which supports UK universities and research centres in the use of digital technologies.

He has championed the UK programmes that led to the widespread take-up of repositories in the UK, and fostered the development of services such as SHERPA RoMEO, which gives a summary of publishers' open access archiving conditions for individual journals as well as OpenDOAR, the world’s authoritative and quality-assured directory of open access repositories.

Neil also actively advises Jisc in its negotiations with publishers on transformative deals such as the recent agreement with Springer Nature. Neil represents the UK rectors group on the European University Association open science expert group and is a member of the board of the Directory of OA Books.

Neil Jacobs will work three days a week in the cOAlition S role starting in early June and working through to the end of the calendar year.
