American Academy of Pediatrics enhances journals platform with ReadCube and Altmetric functionality
- 16 Aug 2017

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), an independent society publisher of professional and clinical resources for pediatricians and child health professionals, has announced an agreement with technology company Digital Science to integrate Altmetric badges into their journal platform and have their collections indexed via the ReadCube Discover program.

Through ReadCube's Discover program, the AAP collection of journals, including the flagship journal, Pediatrics, will be deep-indexed to offer enhanced discoverability across ReadCube's suite of web, desktop and mobile reference management and discovery tools including search engines, related article feeds and personalised recommendations. AAP articles will be available in interactive PDFs when viewed in Readcube.

Visitors to the AAP journals will be able to explore all of the online attention relating to individual articles via the Altmetric badges, which provide an indicator of the volume and reach of online engagement. Clicking on the badges will open the related Altmetric details page, where users can view all of the original mentions of the article.

AAP staff will also benefit from access to the Altmetric Explorer, a cloud-based platform that enables users to search, filter and report on the altmetrics for over 12.5 million research outputs - including over 7 million published articles.

Both integrations are live now. Interested parties may visit the AAP journals site to find Altmetric data for individual articles, and search in ReadCube for AAP journal content.

Academic publisher Oxford University Press and the American Society for Nutrition have announced a new partnership to publish the society's four prestigious research journals - the Journal of Nutrition, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Advances in Nutrition, and Current Developments in Nutrition, beginning in 2018.

The American Society for Nutrition's portfolio publishes timely and important findings in basic, clinical, and emerging nutrition science research, and features the premier journals in the field of nutrition. In addition to research reports, the portfolio provides commentaries and critical reviews written by leaders in the scientific community and special supplement issues on topics in nutrition.

The Journal of Nutrition, founded in 1928, was the first journal dedicated to publishing original, peer-reviewed research in all areas of nutrition, and provides the latest research on a broad spectrum of topics of vital interest to researchers, students, policymakers and all individuals with interests in nutrition.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, with a 2016 Impact Factor of 6.925, is the highest ranked peer-reviewed primary research journal in nutrition and dietetics. In publication since 1952, it publishes the latest findings in basic and clinical studies relevant to human nutrition.

Advances in Nutrition, in publication since 2010, publishes review articles that highlight the significance of recent research in nutrition and illustrate the central role of nutrition in the promotion of health and prevention of disease.

Current Developments in Nutrition is a new open access, multidisciplinary nutrition science journal.

Hindawi and Max Planck Digital Library sign framework agreement
- 15 Aug 2017

Hindawi has announced the signing of a new framework agreement with the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL). Under the deal, all Hindawi Article Processing Charges for authors at Max Planck research institutes will be covered centrally by the MPDL, making the process of publishing in Hindawi's fully Open Access journals even easier for Max Planck researchers.

This is an important agreement as it removes both an administrative and financial barrier for researchers, while allowing them to publish in fully Open Access journals.

This agreement also underlines the strong commitment of both organisations to the EU's Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Max Planck has been a key player in the implementation of the framework, and Hindawi's CEO Paul Peters is an expert advisor to the Open Science Policy Platform that advises on its strategic direction. Hindawi believes that agreements with progressive research organisations such as Max Planck - who are helping to lead the transition to Open Access - help to reduce the burden on researchers and their institutions and, importantly, let them get on with what really matters - their research.
