Industry initiative for manuscript transfer officially named MECA
- 19 Jun 2017

The cross-organisational industry initiative previously called Common Manuscript Transfer Protocol has been officially named MECA, which stands for Manuscript Exchange Common Approach. In addition to the project's name change, other updates include formal launch via a presentation at SSP, and the announcement of a new website.

MECA strives to facilitate and standardise multiple types of manuscript exchange, including: submission system-to-submission system; preprint server-to-submission system; authoring tool-to-submission system; and submission system-to-production services.

Editorial Manager already supports all of these exchange options using JATS, but Aries welcomes an industry-based approach.

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.
