BMJ and ScienceOpen partner to promote open science
- 18 Dec 2018

Healthcare knowledge provider BMJ has announced that its new open access journal, BMJ Open Science, has joined ScienceOpen to promote best practices in preclinical and basic biomedical research with an interactive featured collection on the platform.

To increase rigor, transparency and reproducibility in biomedical research, BMJ Open Science fosters a range of open science practices from open protocols and peer review practices to Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs). Within its discovery environment of over 49 million article records and active community of research collections, ScienceOpen can provide a broad and interactive context for discussions and experimentation with open science goals and strategies.

ScienceOpen and BMJ Open Science are both committed to open peer review. BMJ Open Science publishes all article pre-publication history, which includes all previous versions of the manuscript, the reviewers' comments, and the authors' responses to all the comments from reviewers and editors.

The ScienceOpen platform offers a full suite of tools to add an extra layer of open peer review to published content, keeping the conversation about the research evolving. To fully recognise the contribution of reviewers and ensure maximal discoverability for authors, ScienceOpen integrates seamlessly with Crossref and ORCID.

IOP Publishing and the Korean Society for Composite Materials partner to launch a new journal - Functional Composites and Structures
- 18 Dec 2018

IOP Publishing and the Korean Society for Composite Materials (KSCM) have announced a partnership to launch a new journal - Functional Composites and Structures (FCS).

Co-owned by KSCM and IOP Publishing, FCS will deal with materials with mechanical integrity, whose functional properties can be achieved, promoted, or synergistically improved by a combination of two or more components. Prof. Woong-Ryeol Yu from Seoul National University (Republic of Korea) will serve as the new journal's Editor-in-Chief.

FCS is now open for submissions.

- 14 Dec 2018

Academic Publisher SAGE Publishing has partnered with the British Orthodontic Society to publish its flagship journal, the Journal of Orthodontics (JOO).

The Journal of Orthodontics aims to publish original research that furthers orthodontic care, either by strengthening existing research or by providing new analysis within the field. The journal publishes a wide variety of subjects within orthodontics, welcoming reports on prospective research into different treatment methods and techniques, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and studies stimulating interest in new developments.

A quarterly peer reviewed journal with a global circulation, the first issue of the JOO to be published by SAGE will be in March 2019.

EBSCO Information Services acquires Linguistics Abstracts Online from Wiley
- 12 Dec 2018

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has announced the acquisition of Linguistics Abstracts Online from global publishing company, Wiley, thereby expanding its linguistics resources. Linguistics Abstracts Online is a bibliographic database providing high-quality, cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts from leading linguistics and language study journals. The database provides linguistics scholars with a broad range of materials for keeping up-to-date with emerging trends and important developments in the field.

Linguistics Abstracts Online includes more than 800 journals with some dating back to 1911 and thousands of records with subject headings created by linguistics experts. The resource will benefit those studying linguistics and literature, writing papers, preparing teaching materials, compiling bibliographies and checking references.

Materials in Linguistics Abstracts Online encompass the broad spectrum of linguistics and language study, including subject areas such as: applied linguistics, communication, computational linguistics, deaf studies and education, English language teaching, fluency disorders, language and cultures, phonetics and phonology, psychology, speech pathology, theoretical linguistics and many more.

Linguistics Abstracts Online is an exceptional complement to EBSCO's MLA International Bibliography, which dates back to the 1920s and contains millions of citations from journals and series, as well as book publishers. Subject indexes create a comprehensive and powerful research experience by enabling researchers to access the most relevant results with speed and efficiency. The work done by experts in the field to curate and classify materials and develop field-specific controlled vocabularies has tremendous value to librarians, faculty and students.

Springer Nature and Publons partner to bring greater efficiency and recognition to peer review
- 12 Dec 2018

Research publisher Springer Nature and Publons, part of Clarivate Analytics, have announced a partnership to improve the peer review process and enable peer reviewers to receive recognition for their contribution.

The burden on the peer review community is increasing as the volume of published research articles grows. Research output is rising exponentially and this is putting pressure on the system, with many academics inundated with requests to peer review. The recent Global State of Peer Review report highlights a growing "reviewer fatigue".

The first part of the partnership will see Publons' Reviewer Recognition Service rolled out across more than 2,000 Springer Nature journals starting with Scientific Reports, which claims to be the world's largest open access journal. This follows a successful pilot, which saw some 60,000 reviewers record over 275,000 reviews on Publons, and will provide the researchers who provide over one million reviews for Springer Nature journals every year with important recognition for their work.

The two organisations will also work together to make finding the right peer reviewer faster and smarter. Springer Nature's custom-built in-house reviewer finder will connect with the peer review and editorial history of Publons' over 500,000 strong, and rapidly growing, cross-publisher reviewer community, through Publons Reviewer Connect. This, combined with the integration of Publons' reviewer availability feature, will help Springer Nature to further improve the peer review process by identifying reviewer workload and availability constraints amongst potential reviewers.

Publons will continue to support Springer Nature's partnership with ORCID through its Reviewer Recognition integration, which ensures Publons-verified reviews are automatically added to a researcher's ORCID record. Since ORCID began asserting peer reviews in 2015, over half a million reviews have been added - with Publons contributing 95% of these.
