Netherland Elsevier to expand its R&D start-up innovation program ‘The Hive’ to include engineering-intensive start-ups - 09 Jul 2019

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced that it is expanding its R&D start-up innovation program called The Hive to include engineering-intensive start-ups. Participants in The Hive will be provided complimentary access to Elsevier’s suite of engineering solutions to help them accelerate the route to market for new innovations. Applications and nominations for The Hive are now open.

Elsevier first launched The Hive in 2016 to highlight the superior levels of innovation in the start-up biotech and pharma sector—and to provide early stage companies with resources to overcome R&D challenges. Engineering-intensive companies face equally complex challenges. Across all industries, software and digital technologies are putting pressure on engineering teams to transform their practices; become more agile; reduce time to market of new products; and work more openly with external partners.

To help engineers face these critical challenges, Elsevier is offering complimentary access to its digital solutions purpose-built to help solve engineering problems, including Knovel, a technical reference solution that quickly delivers trusted, accessible and relevant engineering answers & insights; and Engineering Village, the world’s largest engineering literature resource with access to 12 databases and over 190 engineering disciplines. Elsevier’s leading abstract and citation database, Scopus (with the option to receive access to other products, such as ScienceDirect), will also be made available for a select group of companies.

Companies eligible for The Hive will need to meet the following criteria: is in one of the following industries - Chemicals and materials, Oil & Gas, Equipment Manufacturing, Aerospace & Defense (including Transportation), and Engineering, Construction, and Design; is not currently seeking to be acquired; and is a small-to-medium-sized company, with its engineers and researchers in 1-2 locations.

UK Kopernio partners with Meta to support accelerated scientific discovery - 09 Jul 2019

Kopernio, part of the Web of Science Group (a Clarivate Analytics plc company), and Meta, a free biomedical discovery tool from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative have announced a new partnership. Millions of full-text scientific articles will soon be available through an easy copyright-compliant one-click process as a result of this partnership.

Meta users will have faster, easier access to millions of full-text scientific articles through Kopernio’s free web browser plug-in, giving scientists one-click access to complete versions of the latest relevant research delivered directly in their Meta feed.

Meta users will have the option to install the Kopernio plugin for one click retrieval of full-text articles that are accessible to them, either by integrating with institutional subscriptions or by offering a copyright compliant open access alternative. When the version of record is available via institutional subscriptions, librarians and institutions will receive full usage reporting via the original publisher, as Kopernio usage is COUNTER compliant.

Meta is currently in invitation-only access beta but will be generally available later this year.

UK Cambridge University signs San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment - 09 Jul 2019

The University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Press have signed up to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), a set of recommendations agreed in 2012 that seek to ensure that the quality and impact of research outputs are measured accurately and evaluated wisely.

DORA's recommendations call for institutions not to use journal-based metrics, such as Journal Impact Factors, as a surrogate measure of the quality of individual research articles when assessing researchers' contributions in hiring, promotion, or funding decisions. It encourages universities, researchers and others to assess research on its own merits rather than on the basis of the journal in which the research was published and highlights the need to capitalise on the opportunities provided by online publication.

Professor Steve Russell from the University's Department of Genetics, will chair the DORA Working Group, which will oversee the implementation of the DORA recommendations.

DORA calls on institutions to be explicit about the criteria used to reach hiring, tenure, and promotion decisions, clearly highlighting, especially for early-stage researchers, that the content of a paper is much more important than publication metrics or the identity of the journal in which it was published.

In addition to research publications, DORA recommends considering the value and impact of all research outputs (including datasets and software) and a broad range of impact measures including qualitative indicators of research impact, such as influence on policy and practice, for the purposes of research assessment.

The University's HR Division will begin implementing a number of changes to ensure the agreement's recommendations are reflected across its recruitment, reward and promotions schemes.

In February, Cambridge became one of the first UK universities to publish a position statement on Open Research. Its statement set out the key principles for the conduct and support of Open Research at the University, which aims to increase inclusivity and collaboration, unlock access to knowledge and improve the transparency and reproducibility of research.

The recommendation to sign DORA at the University was made by the Open Research Working Group, chaired by Professor Richard Penty, and at the Press by the Open Research Steering Committee, chaired by Brigitte Shull.

Switzerland Frontiers and the University of Salford form open access publishing agreement - 09 Jul 2019

Frontiers and the University of Salford have established an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing. Under the terms of this agreement, eligible authors from the University of Salford may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process.

Eligible authors will benefit from a streamlined invoicing process, managed directly between Frontiers and the Open Access team at the Library of the University of Salford, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, the University of Salford and its Library will benefit from a discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.

This agreement will further encourage University of Salford authors to publish open access, increasing uptake of open access to the results of mostly publicly funded research, to the benefit of the scholarly community and the public at large, while reducing costs.

Authors can submit their article under this institutional agreement, by selecting ‘University of Salford’ as institutional payer in the invoice section when submitting their article. Frontiers will then verify eligibility with the University of Salford Library, who will then contact the authors to discuss how to apply to their open access fund.
