Society for Scholarly Publishing unveils new logo
- 26 May 2017

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) has adopted a new logo as part of an evolution of its brand. As the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) enters its 40th year, the visual identity of the Society has been refreshed to better align with the work its members do to advance scholarly communication worldwide.

SSP's Branding Task Force was drawn to the interlocking triangles in the new logo because of their relationship to the Society's original logo. In the original design, the points on the circumference of the circle represent the various communities SSP seeks to serve and the cords across the circle symbolise the interactions and lines of communication and interest among those communities. The new logo's design carries on these themes while reflecting the society's position as a forward-thinking and innovative space in the publishing community.

SSP partnered with Kellen to design the new logo and visual identity. They provided a series of design concepts based on the theme of interconnected shapes.

Clarivate Analytics renames Thomson Innovation as Derwent Innovation
- 24 May 2017

Clarivate Analytics has announced that the new name for its search and analytics platform, Thomson Innovation, will be Derwent Innovation. The announcement was made at the Patent Information Users Group (PIUG) Annual meeting in Atlanta. The name change supports the company's broader patent and IP commitment and its expertise in driving innovation, while paying homage to Derwent's 50-year + heritage of analyzing quality patent information.

For over 50 years Derwent has been the leader in patent-smart technology, content and applications. The new name reflects the Derwent World Patents Index heritage of accurate, precisely-indexed and enhanced patent data.

As a newly-independent company, Clarivate Analytics is accelerating investment in technology, analytics and content, enabling agility in customer problem-solving. Derwent Innovation is no exception. As part of the July 2017 release of Derwent Innovation, the company is releasing accurate legal status (e.g. dead / alive status, expiration date) and ownership across millions of patents by applying innovative artificial intelligence to Derwent's enhanced patent data.

Consider that the average patent is thought to be in effect for 20 years, when factoring in term extensions being issued at a rate of 54%, the difficulty of determining a patent's status increases dramatically. Additional variables can further complicate the process. Derwent Innovation's latest features make it easier to determine if a patent is still in force and when it will expire.

The new name is effective immediately, and will be implemented across the company's products and services throughout this calendar year and into 2018.

Atypon announces new development hub in the Czech Republic and Greece, continues International expansion
- 22 Feb 2017

Publishing technology company Atypon has opened new development hubs in the Czech Republic and Greece and is expanding its presence in Jordan by 50% in response to the needs of a growing customer base.

Twenty software engineers in the company's new Prague office will work on further expanding the comprehensive feature set of Literatum, the scholarly and professional publishing industry's most widely used online publishing platform.

Atypon is also expanding its offices in Amman, Jordan, where a team of 140 employees will be joined by 60 new front-end, quality assurance, and user interface engineers, as well as project managers and solution architects. Atypon has partnered with the Jordan University of Science&Technology, the country's most prestigious technical school, to train software engineers in specific development technologies employed by Atypon, from which the company will recruit the most talented graduates.

In January, Atypon opened a new development hub in Thessaloniki, Greece, where it has been working closely with the Computer Science department of Aristotle University on machine learning research. The new office will help to expand that collaboration as Atypon continues its investment in machine learning technologies.

Atypon's staff has doubled since 2014, and in 2016 over 3,000 journals and 10 million articles were added to the Literatum platform. The most widely used in scholarly publishing, Literatum now hosts more than 40% of the world's English-language journals.

In addition to Prague, Thessaloniki, and Amman, Atypon has offices in New York City; Birmingham, Alabama; Athens; and Abingdon, UK. It opened a 40-seat development hub in Rochester, New York, earlier this year. The company, headquartered in Santa Clara in California's Silicon Valley, was acquired by Wiley in 2016.
