Taylor&Francis Group and the American Society for Quality announce new publishing partnership
- 03 Oct 2017

Academic publisher Taylor&Francis Group and the American Society for Quality (ASQ) have announced the expansion of their publishing partnership in 2018.

Taylor&Francis will publish two more journals on behalf of the society - The Journal of Quality Technology and Quality Management Journal. This will bring the number of journals published in collaboration with ASQ to four, with Taylor&Francis already publishing Technometrics and Quality Engineering.

ASQ, based in Milwaukee, Wis., was established in 1946 and is a global community of people dedicated to quality, who share ideas and tools to change the world. Consisting of nearly 80,000 organisational and individual members in more than 140 countries, ASQ has the reputation and reach to bring together the diverse quality champions who are transforming the world's organisations and communities to meet tomorrow's critical challenges.

The strengthening of this partnership will significantly enhance the existing journal offering for Taylor&Francis in the quality research field.

- 02 Oct 2017

The American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America have recently announced an agreement for the AMS to acquire the MAA's book publishing program. The high-quality mathematics titles and textbooks developed and edited by MAA Press will now be published as an imprint of the AMS Book Program. This agreement includes all existing MAA Press books, as well as a renewable license to continue to publish new books under the MAA Press imprint.

The AMS will now publish new titles under the MAA Press imprint, and MAA Senior Acquisitions Editor Steven Kennedy will join the AMS acquisitions team to continue to acquire new manuscripts for the imprint.

MAA Press titles will be available alongside AMS books at the AMS Bookstore (bookstore.ams.org) and at AMS exhibits at mathematics meetings by the end of 2017. MAA members will continue to enjoy discounts on MAA Press titles, and will now receive discounts on AMS books, as well. AMS members will get similar discounts on both AMS and MAA titles.

Cambridge University Press' digitised content included in Yewno's knowledge discovery product
- 02 Oct 2017

Cambridge University Press and Yewno partner to include over 1.5 million Cambridge University Press journal articles and 44,000 eBooks in Yewno's visual knowledge discovery product for students and researchers.

Yewno Discover will now be enhanced by the inclusion of Cambridge University Press' full digitised academic content. Over the last 2 years, the knowledge discovery product has benefited from the inclusion of Cambridge University Press journal articles. Yewno's relationship with the Press has now deepened with the inclusion of their full digital content, as the Discover product continues to prove its potential as a vital tool for researchers and students.

Yewno Discover maps over 600 million semantic connections among concepts that are extracted from the full text of academic content provided. Those connections link to over 120 million articles, books, and database assets. Easily navigating the intuitive platform, users search concepts and connections between concepts, engaging in serendipitous and lateral interdisciplinary discovery, and uncovering key resources in each area. Discover was developed not only with consideration of the 'how' of discovery, but crucially, of the 'why'. The tool was developed for the Education sector to transform the research experience into creative, organic discovery; inviting users to be more curious and explore more deeply.

Yewno welcomes further content from a wide range of academic and professional sources and encourages contact from Publishers and content providers to discuss how Yewno might help improve their discoverability through the Discover platform.

CHORUS and JST sign Japan Dashboard agreement
- 02 Oct 2017

Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) has signed a Japan Dashboard agreement with CHORUS to monitor public accessibility of content reporting on JST-funded research. The agreement comes after a successful pilot project that began in July 2016.

A ceremony marking this milestone was held at Rockefeller University on September 15, where a fully executed and countersigned version of the agreement and a token of appreciation were presented to Yasushi Ogasaka, Director of Database for Information and Knowledge Infrastructure, JST, on behalf of the CHORUS Board of Directors.

According to Susan King, Executive Director of Rockefeller University Press and Chair of the CHORUS Board of Directors, the Japan Dashboard Service was a first step in the globalisation of the services that CHORUS provides.

The JST agreement is CHORUS' first international agency agreement. One of the most prolific research environments in the world, Japan ranks fifth in published papers.

Altmetric and the Association of University Presses launch new data-driven pilot
- 29 Sep 2017

Data science company Altmetric and the Association of University Presses have announced the launch of a new data-driven pilot. This three month project has been devised to offer editorial, marketing, communications, and other stakeholders within the presses, the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Altmetric data.

As part of the pilot, six university presses: Johns Hopkins University Press, Penn State University Press, Temple University Press, University of Hawaii Press, University of Toronto Press, and University of Wisconsin Press, will be provided access to the Altmetric Explorer, a cloud-based interactive platform which contains attention data for over 11 million published research outputs.

With a particular focus on tracking attention to books, access to the Altmetric Explorer will enable the presses to easily see where their content is being shared and commented online in sources such as the mainstream media, academic and social networks, policy outlets, post-publication peer-review forums and Wikipedia, amongst others.

Users will also be able to see where monograph titles have been reviewed in the press or included in teaching Syllabi at institutions around the world. Advanced reporting and search functionality provides the ability to compare and benchmark attention against that of other publishers.

These valuable insights into how and where publications have been discussed online will allow the presses to inform and refine editorial, marketing and business strategies.
