RedLink and Atypon partner to integrate Literatum with RedLink Network and Remarq
- 06 Jun 2018

RedLink has announced a partnership with Atypon, offering Literatum customers full integration with RedLink Network, as well as Remarq® collaboration tools in its new in-browser eReader for books and journals.

Atypon is now offering customers on its Literatum platform full integration with RedLink Network to simplify management of access credentials for subscription content. Hundreds of libraries are already using RedLink Network to store IP address ranges, Shibboleth information, link resolvers, and other information to easily communicate any updates or changes to publishers, saving hours of staff time and minimising patron access interruptions. RedLink Network's intuitive interfaces and sophisticated framework also lets connected publishers and institutions review the status of requested changes, communicate more easily, and collaborate to the benefit of their mutual customers - the students, faculty, and researchers they both serve.

Through this integration, Literatum makes it even easier for Atypon customers to take advantage of RedLink Network, simplifying workflows and improving customer response time. By connecting publishers directly with their library customers, RedLink Network helps them both ensure that readers have seamless access to the information they need.

Atypon's new in-browser e-Reader for books and journals, a fully integrated feature of the Literatum publishing platform, includes an integration with the annotation, group, and profile tools within Remarq. Remarq is the engagement service for publishers offering annotation, commenting, article sharing, group collaboration, post-publication review, and more, all on the publisher's site and utilising the version of record. The integration gives researchers a convenient way to annotate, collaborate, and moderate discussions from any content opened with the eReader, online or offline.

Elsevier expands Geofacets, adds content from the Indonesian Petroleum Association
- 05 Jun 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced an expansion of Geofacets, its information solution for exploration and development, with the addition of content from the Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA). Elsevier's collaboration with the IPA will double the amount of information available to users in Indonesia by increasing the current number of maps and data assets by 10,000, helping reduce exploration risk in the region.

Indonesia retains vast oil and gas reserves including seven billion barrels of oil and 150 trillion cubic feet of gas, valued at approximately 120 billion USD. Yet many of the country's existing fields are aging and late in their lifecycle. Geoscientists need access to a wider range of accurate data assets to gain actionable insights to discover and assess the potential of new extraction sites.

Indonesia urgently needs new oil and gas reserves, as demand increases and production from mature fields decreases, according to Gilad Hoshen, Senior Product Manager of Geofacets at Elsevier.

The initial 3,000 plus maps are from the Proceedings of the Indonesian Petroleum Association (2010-present) and were available on April 26. Additional content will be added by July 2018, raising the total number of available maps, figures, and tables in Geofacets to over 1.75 million.

Geofacets helps oil and gas companies prioritise opportunities, optimise resources, and manage risk. It combines a vast, vetted library of maps, figures and tables with powerful location-based search, so companies find information fast.

The Universidad Científica del Sur is one of more than 700 global institutions - including 75 percent of US land-grant universities, together with many of the premier universities and research centres around the world - that subscribe to CAB Abstracts to help ensure that students receive the very latest in scientific knowledge and research.

In particular, Universidad Científica del Sur will use the service to help its students follow their chosen career path in the applied life sciences. The subscription also follows the university's authoritsation to offer professional careers advice from SUNEDU - the body which oversees the quality of university education in Peru.

CAB Abstracts features publications from over 120 countries in 50 languages, including English abstracts for most articles, giving researchers the fullest global picture for any subject.

Oxford University Press joins Coalition for Responsible Sharing
- 01 Jun 2018

Academic publisher Oxford University Press has joined the Coalition for Responsible Sharing, an alliance of publishers and learned societies who are taking action against copyright infringement by ResearchGate. The Coalition for Responsible Sharing aims to prevent the illicit hosting of millions of subscription articles on the commercial ResearchGate site and offer alternative, sustainable solutions to help the research community share their published material online in useful and appropriate ways.

In joining the Coalition, OUP will serve legal takedown notices to ResearchGate for content that infringes its copyright licenses.

OUP is a strong proponent of broadening access to the research they publish in a sustainable manner and they do not take this action lightly. For the last two years, they have been working with other publishers through the STM Association in an attempt to find cooperative ways to work with scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs), including ResearchGate. Unfortunately, these attempts have, in this instance, been unsuccessful.

As a department of the University of Oxford, everything they publish underpins their mission: to support Oxford University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education. As a press, they take pride in this mission, which allows to enable, support, and facilitate research and scholarship. They believe that publishers and SCNs can and should co-exist to the benefit of the research community, with each respecting the other's contribution to scholarly communications and will continue to work with researchers, SCNs, librarians, and others to improve access to journal articles in line with the rights of their authors and publishers and the interests of the entire research community.
