Ex Libris achieves ISO 27017 certification for security controls for cloud services
- 21 Sep 2018

Ex Libris® Group, a ProQuest company, has announced that the company has achieved certification for ISO/IEC 27017:2015, an international standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO/IEC 27017:2015 provides a code of practice for information security controls, including guidelines that expand upon the ISO/IEC 27002 standard by adding security controls specifically related to cloud computing.

The Ex Libris ISO 27017 certification is proof of the company's ongoing commitment to align with globally-recognised best practices. In order to achieve ISO/IEC 27017:2015 certification, a company must demonstrate its ability to implement cloud-specific security measures, such as controls for shared roles and responsibilities within a cloud computing environment, segregation in virtual computing environments, and the alignment of security management for virtual and physical networks.

Ex Libris has long been dedicated to adhering to the most up-to-date cloud security standards and best practices, and the ISO 27017 guidelines are part of the Ex Libris multi-tier security model covering all aspects of cloud services. This model and the Ex Libris controls are based on international protocols, standards, and industry best practices, including ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO/IEC 27018:2014, ISO 22301, ISO/IEC 27017:2015, and CSA STAR Self-Assessment.

Clarivate Analytics names 17 researchers as Citation Laureates
- 20 Sep 2018

Clarivate Analytics, a leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has named 17 world-class researchers as Citation Laureates - researchers whose work is deemed to be, 'of Nobel stature', as attested by markedly high citation tallies recorded in the Web of Science citation index.

Each year since 2002, analysts at Clarivate Analytics have drawn on Web of Science publication and citation data to identify influential researchers in the research areas recognised by Nobel Prizes: Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics. This year, individuals whose research reports have been cited at high frequency - typically in the top .01 percent - and whose contributions to science has been transformative, even revolutionary, have been selected to join the hall of Citation Laureates.

On October 1, 2018, the Nobel Assembly will vote to confer sciences' highest honour and whilst this annual rite inspires worldwide speculation, Clarivate Analytics is the only organisation to use quantitative data to make annual forecasts of potential Nobel Prize recipients. To date, 46 Citation Laureates have gone on to receive a Nobel Prize, 27 within two years of being listed.

Authors of extremely highly cited papers (to be cited 2,000 times or more is a rarity indeed) are usually members of their national academies of sciences, hold high appointments in universities and other research institutes, or have received many top international prizes in their fields. They often go on to receive Nobel honours. While peer review remains the principal method to recognise research excellence, a parallel approach of appraising the citation record often provides important corroborating evidence to supplement peer review.

This year 11 of the 17 honourees are based at leading North American academic institutions; others come from the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Japan and South Korea.

The 2018 Citation Laureates include: Napoleone Ferrara, University of California; Minoru Kanehisa, Kyoto University; Solomon H. Snyder, Johns Hopkins University; David Awschalom, University of Chicago; Arthur C. Gossard, University of California; Sandra M. Faber, University of California; Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University; Rodney S. Ruoff, IBS CMCM Center and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea; Patrice Simon, Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse III - CNRS; Eric N. Jacobsen, Harvard University; George M. Sheldrick, Georg-August-Universitat Gottingen; JoAnne Stubbe, MIT; Manuel Arellano, CEMFI, Madrid; Stephen R. Bond, Oxford University; Wesley M. Cohen, Duke University; Daniel A. Levinthal, University of Pennsylvania; and David M. Kreps, Stanford University.

Clarivate Analytics announces winner of 2018 Eugene Garfield Award
- 13 Sep 2018

Clarivate Analytics, a leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has announced the recipient of the 2018 Eugene Garfield Award for Innovation in Citation Analysis at the 23rd Science and Technology Indicators Conference in Leiden, Netherlands. Launched in 2017, this award recognises scientists working on innovative approaches in citation analysis that improve how they measure the impact of scientific research - also known as scientometrics - a field in which Garfield was a pioneer.

This year's recipient is Orion Penner, researcher and Ambizione Fellow in the Chair of Innovation and IP Policy within the College of Management of Technology at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne. Originally trained in physics and complexity science, Penner applies tools from data science, economics and other social sciences to publication and patent databases to ask interesting questions about research and innovation as a system and how research careers evolve. Last year he was selected by the Swiss National Science Foundation for the prestigious Ambizone program, one of the most competitive funding schemes in Switzerland.

Penner's current research program focuses on researcher careers, in particular how success is influenced by the decisions individual researchers make in allocating research effort across multiple topics, or in selecting a new job or mentor. His findings speak directly to the present discussion surrounding the sustainability of the current academic career system.

In studying researcher careers Penner has pioneered the rigorous application of various natural language processing techniques, including topic models, to a variety of textual data arising from researcher careers. Through this award, Penner will extend those techniques to the problem of identifying individual publications that have played an unusually pivotal role in scientific discourse.

Penner will receive $25,000 of prize money and access to Web of Science data, the publisher-neutral citation index. Penner will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the prestigious Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), which was originally established in 1960 by Eugene Garfield. The ISI focuses on the development of existing and new scientometric approaches.

Scientometric data not only provides researchers with insights about the impact of their work but they also help funding bodies and universities assess the impact of their research investments.

Publons announces winners of Publons Peer Review Awards
- 12 Sep 2018

Publons, a Clarivate Analytics company and the peer review platform for researchers, has announced the winners of the Publons Peer Review Awards - highlighting global researchers for both the quality and quantity of their peer reviews.

The awards honour the best in class for peer review over the past year and are broken down into the following categories: top 1 percent of reviewers in their field; top quality reviewers; top reviewers for top journals; top-handling editors.

In addition, this year a new community-choice award has been added for early-career researchers' exceptional contribution to peer review with a prize of US$1,500. This peer-nominated and voted award recognises an individual who has been influential in the realm of peer review, or has significantly contributed to improving the system.

The theme for Peer Review Week 2018 focuses on helping the world to understand and foster diversity and inclusion in peer review. By focusing on both the quality and quantity of researchers' efforts, the Publons Peer Review Awards are not bound by geographical or educational borders, but rather honour the rich dimensions of diversity within the peer reviewing community.

Publons has also garnered support for the awards from key industry players, which include Sage, Wiley and Cambridge University Press.
