SAGE signs ORCID open letter to support better recognition for researchers
- 04 Dec 2018

As part of SAGE Publishing's commitment to ethical, transparent and fair peer review SAGE has signed the ORCID open letter along with other stakeholders. Committing to mandating ORCID in accordance with the best practice for publishers, this step ensures better recognition and accreditation for researchers as well as supporting author and researcher compliance with funding mandates.

Following two trial phases across 2017 and 2018, SAGE will require ORCID IDs from corresponding authors submitting across a large number of journals from winter 2018.

In November, 2015, a group of publishers asked ORCID to help facilitate communications about their plans to require authors to use an ORCID iD, including hosting this open letter explaining their rationale, developing best practices for using iDs in publishing, and maintaining the signatory list. The publishers' goal is to encourage others to join them in supporting the adoption of ORCID. Publishers signing this open letter are committing to requiring ORCID iDs following specific implementation standards.

HighWire partners with Code Ocean to boost transparency, reproducibility, and reuse of research
- 28 Nov 2018

Scholarly publishing tech provider, HighWire, has partnered with computational reproducibility platform, Code Ocean, to enable authors of academic articles to easily publish and share code associated with their research. Available to all HighWire customers, the cloud-based platform further allows readers to view and run code from within articles, increasing transparency within research, promoting reproducibility and reuse in research.

A key challenge for the scholarly community, particularly within the scientific and medical disciplines, has been the ongoing struggle to prove reproducibility of content, studies, and research. Through integrating Code Ocean's technology into their service offering, HighWire simplifies and encourages reproducibility across publishers, academics and university staff who regularly access manuscripts, research papers and other scholarly materials.

Increasingly, researchers are relying on coding and software to help ease the burden of proof. Code Ocean is simplifying the peer review process by providing support for reproducibility. Researchers will be able to generate and submit code via the Code Ocean offering, which will then appear within the article once published.

ROMSOC and PaperHive team up to boost visibility of new publications
- 27 Nov 2018

The European research project ROMSOC has partnered with PaperHive, a copyright-compliant scholarly collaboration network, to facilitate research collaboration and boost the visibility of research results. All articles emerging from the project will be available for discussion within PaperHive.

ROMSOC is a European Industrial Doctorate project that will run for four years bringing together 15 international academic institutions and 11 industry partners from Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Israel, the Netherlands, Spain, and Poland. It supports the recruitment and training of early stage researchers in the field of industrial mathematics.

The partnership focuses on stimulating cross-border research collaboration both in the process of creation, and in the dissemination of the results. The authors will be able to collaboratively discuss and review the early versions of their work within PaperHive. Broad expert audiences will then be able to join the discussion on the Version of Record.
