Wiley and the National Society of Genetic Counselors announce publishing partnership
- 30 Jul 2018

Publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc. and the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) have announced a publishing partnership for the Journal of Genetic Counseling. The journal will transition to the Wiley Online Library platform following the publication of the November/December 2018 issue.

Journal of Genetic Counseling is the preeminent journal for the genetic counselling profession and has undergone tremendous growth since its inception in 1992. It is a bimonthly online journal with a worldwide readership. The primary goal of this scholarly journal is to promote the advancement of an evidence base relevant to the field of genetic counselling. As an official NSGC publication, the journal also provides a forum for dialogue on critical or controversial issues in the genetic counselling field.

NSGC, the leading voice for genetic counselling, was incorporated in 1979. Chicago-based NSGC serves to advance the roles of genetic counsellors in healthcare by fostering education, research, and public policy to ensure the availability of quality genetic services. NSGC's vision is to integrate genetics and genomics to improve health for all by expanding and promoting the practice of genetic counselling. Wiley is proud to partner with the NSCG to advance the impact of genetic counselling research globally.

Elsevier partners with Impactstory to make open access articles easier to find on Scopus
- 30 Jul 2018

Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced a new partnership with Impactstory, a non-profit that creates online tools to make science more open and reusable. As a result of this partnership, researchers will soon be able to find open access content on Scopus more efficiently. Meanwhile, for university research offices, the expansion of OA-identified content in Scopus will enable improved strategic analysis and benchmarking.

The agreement will enable Elsevier to integrate document-level OA data from Impactstory's Unpaywall database with Scopus content; identification and tagging of Scopus' OA peer-reviewed articles will begin in August and roll out through November 2018.

Currently, Scopus users can filter search results to link to open access articles published in journals that are OA-only and which the publisher has proactively registered as OA through Crossref. Matching OA documents from Impactstory's Unpaywall database with Scopus content will increase the amount of OA-tagged content in Scopus to over 7 million records. This will improve navigation and allow for trend analysis of publication models across research subject areas and countries.

With this agreement, both the organisations' seek to work on initiatives that support open science, ensuring that institutions and researchers have the resources that best support their workflows and reporting needs.

UCL Press announces publishing services partnership with DCU
- 27 Jul 2018

Following the announcement by DCU of the launch of its open access university press (DCU news), the first open access university press in Ireland, UCL Press has announced that it will be providing publishing services to support DCU Press.

UCL Press started its consultancy and publishing services in late 2017 and has already provided consultancy to UTS Press (University of Technology Sydney), Helsinki University Press, TU Delft, Radboud University and DCU. DCU will be its first publishing services partner.

As a relatively new open access university press, UCL Press is in a unique position to help other universities establish a new press. Setting up an OA university press is a growing trend, and increasing awareness of the benefits of open access publishing, combined with national and funder requirements for open access in both Europe and the UK, have inspired several new open access presses in recent years.

One of the most important determinants of success for a new university press is to attract new authors and build a strong publishing programme, and DCU Press will now focus on establishing its new press and commissioning its first books and journals. UCL Press will work in the background to provide an end-to-end service, including guidance at the setting-up stage and with developing a publishing programme, a publishing platform, full editorial and production services, and open access and print distribution.
