Project MUSE expands its relationship with Google Scholar to implement Campus Activated Subscriber Access
- 16 Oct 2017

Project MUSE, the trusted source for humanities and social science content from university presses and scholarly publishers, has expanded its relationship with Google Scholar to include implementation of Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA), providing seamless access to subscribed or purchased content for an institution's users even when off campus or from a mobile device.

An extension of Google Scholar's Subscriber Links service, CASA makes note of a user's institutional affiliation when they access content from an authorised on-campus location, and then enables continued access to their library's MUSE journal and book holdings from home or when using a device not connected to the institution's network.

CASA makes it easy for students and researchers to access MUSE content from anywhere without the need for proxy/VPN or other off-campus authentication systems that can act as a barrier between users and the rich scholarly materials their library holds. CASA helps libraries provide their users with the most immediate access to acquired content while supporting licensing agreements. MUSE's participating publishers will benefit from users having frictionless access to the content on the MUSE platform, encouraging and increasing usage of the authorised versions.

No action is required by the subscribing institution to enable CASA; users utilising Google Scholar will, once their affiliation is recorded from on-campus, experience seamless access to their library's licensed MUSE content at home and on mobile. Users periodically refresh their CASA affiliation by visiting Google Scholar from a campus location, and usage of MUSE articles and book chapters facilitated by CASA is included in an institution's COUNTER statistics.

Royal Society of Chemistry to sell Portland Press journals content
- 16 Oct 2017

The Royal Society of Chemistry and Portland Press, the wholly-owned publishing arm of the Biochemical Society, have announced a partnership enabling the Royal Society of Chemistry to sell Portland Press journals content.

According to Dan Dyer, commercial director at the Royal Society of Chemistry, with the strategic alliance of the two societies, customers will benefit by having a single sales contact to discuss all their chemistry and biochemistry content requirements. Working collaboratively in this way will benefit the whole community, by extending content offering into each other's respective markets.

Taylor&Francis Group successfully completes Share More Easily book pilot in partnership with ReadCube
- 16 Oct 2017

Academic publisher Taylor&Francis Group has completed a successful pilot of its Share More Easily program in partnership with ReadCube, a Digital Science technology company.

Launched in June 2017, the program was designed specifically to support Taylor&Francis' book authors and offered special sharing links to free-to-read full-text versions of their complete books. These links could then be easily shared across social media, scholarly collaboration networks, or emailed to those in their network - opening new channels to promote visibility and extend the reach of work across the academic community.

The Share More Easily pilot included 600 titles across HSS and STM: 300 received sharing links to promote their work and 300 did not - the latter acting as a control group. Initial feedback surveys to authors and editors have resulted in positive feedback with 100% of respondents highlighting the importance of sharing full-text in the promotion of their published work and 98% confirming they would use these links if available to them in the future.

Powered by ReadCube's sharing technology, the Share More Easily pilot allowed instant view-only access to the shared book directly within any web browser. Throughout the pilot, authors also had ability to track how their published content is being used and shared online using Altmetric data.Originally designed for individual scholarly articles, this was the first deployment of ReadCube's expanded sharing support for books.

Over the coming months, Taylor&Francis will continue to work closely with their author community and integrate feedback from the pilot, to inform next steps.
