Pensoft integrates its journals with Catalogue of Life
- 22 Jan 2018

Scholarly publisher Pensoft has implemented a new integration with the global organisation Catalogue of Life (CoL), so that it joins in the effort to encourage authors publishing global taxonomic review in any of the publisher's journals to upload their taxonomic contributions to the database.

Whenever authors submit a manuscript containing a world revision or checklist of a taxon to a Pensoft journal, they are offered the possibility to upload their datasets in CoL-compliant format, so that they can contribute to CoL, gain more visibility and credit for their work, and support future research and conservation initiatives.

Once the authors upload the dataset, Pensoft will automatically notify CoL about the new contribution, so that the organisation can further process the knowledge and contact the authors, if necessary.

In addition, CoL will also consider for indexing global taxonomic checklists, which have already been published by Pensoft.

It is noteworthy to mention that unlike an automated search engine, CoL does not simply gather the uploaded data and store them. All databases in CoL are thoroughly reviewed by experts in the relevant field and comply with a set of explicit instructions.

Elsevier and Times Higher Education (THE) extend partnership in multi-year agreement
- 22 Jan 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health which is part of RELX Group, and Times Higher Education (THE), the data provider underpinning university excellence in every continent across the world, have announced their extended partnership in a multi-year agreement.

This will see THE draw on Elsevier's Scopus data to power its flagship World University Rankings and derived rankings, including the Asia University Rankings, BRICS&Emerging Economies, World Reputation Rankings, Young University Rankings, US College Rankings, Japan University Rankings, and Latin America Rankings.

The THE World University Rankings score research-focused universities across all their core missions: research, teaching, knowledge transfer, and international outlook. Staff are surveyed to share their experiences and opinions and these results are combined with quantitative metrics and institutional own data about student and staff to compile the rankings. Scopus will now continue to be the sole source for the bibliometric data and reputation survey underlying the ranking.

Scopus is the world's largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed academic literature. Data included covers that of 5,000 publishers globally resulting in over 70 million records and 12 million author profiles indexed. The breadth of this data enables THE to analyse research activity from a greater number of institutions, including institutions from emerging economies that account for a growing share of global research today.

THE will also continue to draw on Elsevier's SciVal research benchmarking tool to develop its research performance metrics and analysis; Elsevier will continue to run an annual global academic reputation survey on THE's behalf. THE now also has access to education data from Elsevier's fellow RELX Group company, LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

FinELib consortium and Elsevier in deal for subscription access and open access publishing
- 19 Jan 2018

The FinELib consortium and Elsevier have signed an agreement making Elsevier's globally published research articles available to Finnish academic institutions, while providing Finnish researches with incentives to publish open access if they so choose.

The three-year contract applies to 13 Finnish universities, 11 research institutions and 11 universities of applied sciences, and grants subscription access to around 1,850 journals on Elsevier's ScienceDirect e-platform. To support Finland's goal of transitioning to open access publishing, Elsevier and FinELib have initiated an Open Access pilot program that stimulates Finnish researchers to publish their articles open access in Elsevier journals.

Based on Scopus and ScienceDirect data, Finnish research published by Elsevier increased by 37.5 percent between 2011 and 2015 while the total number of Finnish articles published grew by 15.8 percent during the same period. These numbers demonstrate the value Finnish scientists attach to publishing in Elsevier's high-quality journals.

The FinELib consortium comprises Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences, research institutes and public libraries. The consortium centrally acquires electronic resources for its member organisations and actively promotes open access. The aim of the consortium is to provide the best possible resources for research and teaching while supporting openness.
