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.

EKT and Public Knowledge Project announce strategic partnership
- 11 May 2018

PKP has announced the establishment of a new strategic partnership with the National Documentation Centre (EKT) of Greece. EKT has been a major adopter and advocate for PKP's Open Journal Systems (OJS) and Open Monograph Press (OMP) both in Greece and throughout Europe.

EKT has provided code contributions and Greek language translations for OJS over the past several years. More recently they have participated in the Hirmeos project (High Integration of Research Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) with OMP being one of the five monograph publishing platforms being used. They are also one of the international nodes participating in the PKP Preservation Network. The formal relationship not only acknowledges these recent collaborations but will also provide a foundation for new initiatives going forward.
