Agreement between EBSCO Information Services and The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to benefit Iraqi researchers
- 16 May 2018

Information services provider EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) have signed a cooperation agreement to license and index Iraqi Academic Scientific Journals for inclusion in EBSCO databases and to provide Iraqi researchers access to select EBSCO databases.

This project is described to be one of the most important strategic initiatives adopted by the Research and Development Department of MOHESR in Iraq and under the patronage of its minister and professor, Dr. Abdul Razzaq Al-Issa.

The cooperation agreement was signed by the Ministry Deputy for Scientific Research Affairs, Dr. Fouad Kasim Mohammad. A representative of EBSCO Information Services in Beirut, Lebanon, is working closely with the Iraqi Academic Journals to exchange selected databases with those provided by EBSCO.

This agreement will benefit Iraqi researchers at universities and research centers, as well as contribute to the advancement of the Iraqi Academic Scientific Journals website to achieve a better digital educational society.

SAE International adds Wiley Aerospace and Automotive Collections to SAE MOBILUS technical resource platform
- 15 May 2018

SAE International has announced the addition of Wiley Aerospace and Automotive Collections to the SAE MOBILUS technical resource platform. The collections will be offered as annual subscription eBook packages and will be available for full-feature access exclusively through the SAE MOBILUS platform. Those who purchase the Aerospace or Automotive Collections will also be eligible to purchase innovative Wiley add-on collections (Computer Systems and Cybersecurity) to further expand and enhance their resource library.

Containing 30 eBook titles, the Wiley Aerospace Collection covers valuable engineering subject matter, such as aircraft fuel systems, aerodynamics, and propulsion. The series also goes beyond engineering, including eBooks on planning, logistical issues, and how human behaviour can be managed and controlled while operating aircraft.

The Wiley Automotive Collection contains 20 eBook titles and focuses on a wide range of categories, including engines, transmission, chassis, body, electrical, safety, and manufacturing. Titles covering new and emerging topics such as battery technology and electric and hybrid vehicles are included as well, making the series an essential addition to any institution's automotive resources.

Both the Aerospace and Automotive anchor collections, as well as the Computer Systems and Cybersecurity add-on collections, can be conveniently accessed from any device via the SAE MOBILUS technical resource platform.

The Wiley Aerospace and Automotive Collections and Computer Systems and Cybersecurity Add-On Collections are published by John Wiley&Sons, Inc. The entire Wiley package, offered as the Wiley SAE MOBILUS eBook Package, and individual Wiley collections are available through annual subscriptions.

The Computer Systems and Cybersecurity add-on packages are not available individually and can only be purchased in addition to the Aerospace or Automotive Collections.

Elsevier and International Association of Forensic Nurses collaborate to enhance forensic nursing content
- 15 May 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, and part of RELX Group, will collaborate with the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) to enhance Elsevier's Clinical Skills for emergency nursing.

The IAFN will review and revise the skills for emergency nurses that include forensic procedures to ensure that the content is consistent with the high standards and recommended practices of the association.

Forensic nurses are an essential component of healthcare's response to violence and trauma. The association defines and advances the global research agenda to enhance nursing's evidence-based response to the needs of forensic populations.

Open Science Projects collaborate on Joint Roadmap
- 14 May 2018

A group of organisations building non-profit, open-source tools for scholarship and publication has joined with open-science researchers in a new collaboration to develop a Joint Roadmap for Open Science Tools (JROST).

While open technologies and services are becoming essential in science practices, so far, there has been no holistic effort to align these tools into a coherent ecosystem that can support the scientific experience of the future. To draw this missing map, the Joint Roadmap has been formed as an informal group of like-minded people and organisations with shared goals. To date, participating organisations include: Berkeley Institute of Data Science (BIDS), bioRxiv, Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), Crossref, Dat Project, Earth and Space Science Open Archive (EESOAr), eLife, Hypothesis, Jupyter Project, Mozilla, Open Science Framework (OSF), ORCID, Public Knowledge Project, Public Library of Science (PLOS), Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), Wikimedia, and Zotero, joined by researchers: Samantha Hindle and Daniel Mietchen.

The common purpose is to deliver a vision for the tool chain or dashboard of the scientist of the future; a mission for what we hope to achieve and how we can work together; a set of user stories that together describe the problems to solve; and a preliminary roadmap for how projects and services can work together.

Through workshops and other coordinated activities, the Joint Roadmap will bring together technology organisations and researchers who are actively involved in the design and production of open scholarly infrastructure. Their objectives will be to explore shared goals and outcomes, develop cross-platform user stories, and identify obvious areas of mutual collaboration.
