Karger Publishers participates in Google's CASA Initiative to enhance access for students
- 23 Feb 2018

Medical and scientific publisher Karger Publishers has announced that it will take part in Google's Campus Activated Subscriber Access Initiative (CASA), enabling off-campus access to subscribed Karger content for university members.

Karger Publishers participates in Google's CASA Initiative, making subscribed Karger content available to university members wherever they are. CASA is activated automatically when users are connected to the university network. To maintain this service, users have to reconnect to the university network every 30 days.

This collaboration with Google is an important advance which streamlines access to purchased Karger content for authorised library users. Using Google CASA requires no extra work for set-up or maintenance for subscribing institutions. These institutions are still able to adhere to license agreements and copyright laws, as Google CASA provides legitimate off-campus access to scientific articles.

Macmillan Learning joins Educational Publishers Enforcement Group to fight against counterfeit and piracy practices in education
- 22 Feb 2018

Macmillan Learning, a premier education solutions company, has announced an agreement to join the Educational Publishers Enforcement Group ("EPEG") and will formally endorse the Anti-Counterfeit Best Practices ("Best Practices") created by EPEG and its partners. By joining this team of content providers including Cengage, Elsevier, McGraw-Hill Education and Pearson, and working with distributors like Barnes&Noble Education, Chegg, Follett and Ingram, which have endorsed the Best Practices, Macmillan Learning is now part of the largest industry effort in identifying and eliminating counterfeit textbooks.

Last year, EPEG developed Best Practices to address and combat the growth in production and sales of counterfeit textbooks. Although the production of counterfeit materials is a copyright infringement and a violation of federal law, publishers and vendors noted a troubling increase in illegal activity in recent years.

EPEG Best Practices outline immediate steps designed to eliminate counterfeit textbooks from the market. Found at http://www.stopcounterfeitbooks.com, the Best Practices include over 19 different steps geared to avoiding counterfeit textbooks including important advice on partnering with reliable sources and vendors.

Information and warning signs on how to avoid, identify, and report illegal activity can also be found at http://www.stopcounterfeitbooks.com.

Elsevier and Hypothesis collaborate to integrate open annotation
- 21 Feb 2018

Elsevier, an information analytics business specialising in science and health, and Hypothesis have announced a collaboration to align annotation capabilities in Elsevier's Research Products with the emerging ecosystem of interoperable clients and services for annotation based on open standards and technologies.

Hypothesis is a non-profit dedicated to the development of open annotation. Through its new open-source technology, academics and scientists are able to make notes on documents they are reading and share those notes with others. Elsevier is a world leading information analytics business specializing in science and health.

By working together, Elsevier and Hypothesis demonstrate two important shifts in scholarly communications: first, the growing role that annotation plays within the life cycle of research and publication; and second, that data standards and open frameworks are increasingly essential to scientific collaboration and progress.

In 2015, Elsevier joined the Annotating All Knowledge (AAK) coalition, a group formed to promote interoperability between annotation products and services and to further the W3C's standardisation efforts among publishers and platforms. AAK members undertook a pledge to begin incorporating open annotation into their platforms and to be open in doing so. With this announcement, Elsevier makes good on their AAK pledge to bring the annotation standard to their offerings.
