American OpenScience partners with Editage to offer author services
- 01 Nov 2017

American OpenScience (AOS), operated by ResearchSwift LLC, has announced a partnership with Editage, the flagship brand of Cactus Communications. AOS will offer pre-submission manuscript preparation and language editing services, powered by Editage, to authors at a discounted price through their website.

The publishing policies of AOS aim to promote open science in research publishing that includes open access, open data, open methodology, and open peer review. The open science movement has gained tremendous momentum in the past few years and many open access publishers are adopting open transparent peer reviews. AOS believes that every finding from a careful research study is important to be published, including, null findings and scientifically justified replications that not only contribute to a cumulative knowledge base, but also save other researchers' time, effort, and resources.

AOS will publish articles immediately after a quick review by in-house editors, followed by transparent peer review by independent author-invited referees. Authors can use language editing services, offered by Editage, to ensure that the language used in the manuscripts submitted to AOS is suitable for publication.

Annals of Laboratory Medicine partners with Editage to share video summaries for articles
- 30 Oct 2017

Annals of Laboratory Medicine (ALM) has partnered with Editage to make Video Summaries support available to authors publishing their research articles in the journal. Through this partnership, authors can opt for professional help from Editage to get video summaries created for their research articles published in ALM. The journal will publish the custom-produced videos as part of the article of record in the Table of Contents online and as part of a video gallery on the journal website, and help present published works in an engaging audio-visual format and without paywalls.

These short videos highlight the focal points of a published research paper as easy-to-understand synopses.

Editage will also provide authors with a support kit that contains the video transcript, audio file, a slide deck for use in presentations, and tips on promoting the video summary for maximum visibility. As more journals embrace the need to drive research impact, a service portfolio like Editage Research Communication Services helps authors and journals to communicate key takeaways of published research to broad audiences.

Annals of Laboratory Medicine is the official bi-monthly open access English journal of the Korean Society for Laboratory Medicine (KSLM). The journal publishes all types of research articles from Diagnostic Hematology, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology, Diagnostic Immunology, Transfusion Medicine, Diagnostic Genetics, Laboratory Informatics, and General Laboratory Medicine. The journal is indexed/tracked/covered by CABI, Chemical Abstract Service, Index Medicus/Medline, Science Citation Index Expanded, Journal Citation Reports/Science edition, Scopus, KoreaMed, KoreaMed Synapse, and EBSCO.

Pearson and Oakton Community College partner to increase access to affordable course materials
- 27 Oct 2017

Pearson has announced its partnership with Oakton Community College, located in Des Plaines, Illinois, to digitally deliver course materials to students at significant cost savings. The institution launched its Digital Direct Access program in the fall of 2017, beginning with a pilot focused on 300 students enrolled in the BUS 101: Introduction to Business course. The course provides learners with first day of class access to Pearson's MyLab Intro to Business online homework, tutorial, and assessment content and technology.

Since 2016, more than 450 colleges and universities across the country, including more than 200 in 2017, have partnered with Pearson to implement the Digital Direct Access (DDA) model. Pearson's DDA model enables institutions to deliver high-quality digital course materials, including MyLab and Mastering, Revel and eTexts, to students on or before the first day of class at a savings of up to 70 percent. Educators also gain valuable insights into students' learning activity through data access, enabling them to continuously track and assess students' progress while engaging with these immersive platforms.

Based on the positive feedback from Oakton Community College students and faculty members on their experience with the program, the institution has decided to expand the number of courses that leverage the Digital Direct Access program. As a result, in the spring of 2018, students enrolled in the Computer Information Systems Department course, will be provided with immediate access to Pearson's MyLab IT. With more than 11 million users annually, MyLab and Mastering delivers consistent, measurable gains in student learning outcomes, retention, and subsequent course success.

The Digital Direct Access model is part of Pearson's ongoing commitment to making college more accessible and more affordable for students, and establishing equity in access to critical course materials. Earlier this year, Pearson announced a two-step plan to address the issue of college affordability. The plan immediately reduced the prices of 2000 e-book titles by up to 50 percent. The second phase of the effort ensures that students can rent popular print titles online and in-store through trusted retailers. This rental-only model allows Pearson to reduce prices by up to 60 percent and ensure that all students have access to affordable textbooks.

Future Medicinal Chemistry and International Chemical Biology Society announce official partnership
- 26 Oct 2017

The International Chemical Biology Society (ICBS) and the Future Science Group have announced a new collaboration, with the journal Future Medicinal Chemistry becoming an official partner publication of the Society.

Following an announcement at the 6th Official Conference of the ICBS, in Shanghai, China (October 17-20), Future Medicinal Chemistry and the ICBS will work together closely to publish cutting-edge content on chemical biology, and to provide a variety of benefits to members of the ICBS.

The journal will welcome members of the ICBS onto their highly respected Editorial Board, allowing them to work together to ensure that the most relevant and interesting content is published in the field of chemical biology, including a number of themed issues each year. New members will join existing Senior Editor Professor Jonathan Baell (Monash University, Australia), a member of the ICBS Board of Directors, who was instrumental in initiating the partnership together with Professor Zaneta Nikolovska-Coleska (University of Michigan, USA) and other members of the ICBS Board of Directors.

ICBS members will receive a variety of benefits from the publisher, including discounted journal subscriptions and reduced fees for the journal's optional Open Access service. In addition, members of the ICBS will benefit from the unique networking and collaboration opportunities provided by the journal's partner website MedChemNet.

Health Research Board to launch publication platform with F1000
- 25 Oct 2017

Ireland's Health Research Board (HRB) is to launch a new publishing platform that will enable HRB-funded researchers to publish all research outputs quickly, in an open and transparent way. HRB Open Research will be the first publication platform operated by F1000 on behalf of a public funder.

All HRB Open Research publication charges will be covered by the HRB and the platform will launch in February 2018. Because researchers will be able to publish any and all results, rather than standard articles as encouraged by more traditional journals, fewer results will end up filed away, which reduces duplication of work and of funding.

HRB Open Research will provide all HRB-funded researchers with a platform to immediately publish any research results they think are worth sharing. This could include research articles, null results, case reports, small findings and the data underlying their results (subject to data protection policies). The model helps address significant issues faced by the research community at the moment, such as research waste, reproducibility and rising publication costs.

The open data policy, which requires publication of all supporting research data together with an article, reinforces the HRB's commitment to research integrity, reproducibility and transparency. This is of particular importance with current concerns around what has been described as the 'reproducibility crisis' - the failure to replicate the results of previous experiments. A recent survey has found that 70 percent of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce the experiments of others.

A process of open peer review, post-publication, helps limit editorial bias and increase speed of publication. The approach allows users to see who has reviewed an article, as well as their comments on the published work in line with the HRB principles of transparency, fairness and accountability. Once a sufficient level of peer review has been reached the articles will be indexed in major bibliometric databases.

HRB Open research will be in good company as it joins Wellcome Open Research (launched November 2016) and Gates Open Research (launching autumn 2017). These are publication platforms with the same transparent peer review model operated on behalf of the two private funders of biomedical research, the UK-based charity Wellcome and the Bill&Melinda Gates Foundation. All platforms are based on technology developed on F1000Research, which first launched in 2013.
