Hindawi and Publons partner to improve peer review process
- 14 Mar 2019

Open access publisher Hindawi and Publons, a peer review platform and part of the Web of Science Group, have announced a new partnership to improve peer review processes.

Hindawi has integrated the new reviewer search service, Publons Reviewer Connect, with their peer review management systems, including review.hindawi.com, their recently launched open source peer review system. The integration will provide Hindawi's academic editors with the cross-publisher peer review and editorial history of more than 500,000 Publons' strong reviewer community. Reviewer Connect will be implemented this month across Hindawi's 231 peer-reviewed journals to support editors with accurate peer review suggestions.

Hindawi also plans to improve review speed and reduce reviewer workloads by integrating Publons' Reviewer Availability feature, identifying availability constraints at the time of invitation. Hindawi will work to bring about industry-wide improvements in review efficiency by providing availability data to Publons, where reviewers' privacy choices permit.

Association of Arab Universities and Elsevier in deal to host Arab journals on Digital Commons
- 14 Mar 2019

The Association of Arab Universities and Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, have reached an agreement to co-create the Arab Journals Platform, an open electronic network of scholarly journals that will help raise awareness of leading research carried out in the Arab world.

The new network will launch in 2019 and will be hosted, managed and published on Digital Commons, Elsevier's professional grade open publishing platform. The new network will connect Arab research to all parts of the world through an optimised solution that facilitates discovery of journals on search engines and inclusion in the academic search engine Google Scholar. Digital Commons is engineered for discovery, allowing researchers and scholars to connect with a global audience of peers. An open access approach allows for research and scholarship to pass freely into the hands of those who can do great things with such knowledge.

The Arab Journals Platform is set to launch with 100 journals in its initial phase, with a goal of increasing to 1,000 journals. The network is open to members of the Association of Arab Universities and non-members within the League of Arab States. Institutions wishing to submit journals to be considered for inclusion in the Arab Journals Platform are invited to send queries to journals@aaru.edu.jo.

The Arab Journals Platform will aim to build a unified network approved by the Association of Arab Universities and its members, which aims to represent a single voice of academic research in the Arab world; make full-text articles in scholarly journals published by Arab universities openly accessible so they are more visible, more influential and more global; and to provide technical support to Arab editors to help their journals fulfill many of the qualitative standard requirements of databases such as Scopus, the largest abstract and indexing database of peer-reviewed journals, books and conference proceedings, and increase the chances for journals to be accepted for indexing.

As part of the agreement, Elsevier will support the Arab Journal Platform by providing publishing expertise, technical support and editor training.
