Kudos announces publisher pilot for managing and tracking author sharing via scholarly collaboration networks
- 14 Jul 2017

Kudos, the service for maximising the reach and impact of research publications, has announced a pilot program to help publishers prevent copyright infringement and reclaim lost usage from sharing of research articles on scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs). The first publishers to participate in this pioneering approach to managing and understanding usage via SCNs include the American Thoracic Society, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, and the MIT Press.

The pilot also sees a new partnership between Kudos and innovative technology company ReadCube, whose read-only enhanced PDFs will feature as an option within the Kudos solution.

The pilot runs through to the end of 2017; participation is limited, with a small number of seats remaining which will be offered on a first come, first served basis. There is no requirement to be a current Kudos customer to participate in the pilot.

Nominations for Elsevier's innovation hub for biotech and pharmaceutical startups, The Hive, now open
- 13 Jul 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specialising in science and health, has announced that applications and nominations for The Hive, its innovation hub for biotech and pharmaceutical startups, are now open. This year, at least eight leading-edge startups working on innovative goals will be chosen to become part of The Hive, with an unlimited number of places for exceptional candidates.

The Hive's startups will receive complimentary access to Elsevier's suite of digital solutions for 18 months - helping them rapidly advance their critical research, and improve productivity. The Hive, first launched in 2016, highlights the superior levels of innovation in the startup biotech and pharma sector; as well as demonstrating to larger companies, and other areas of the research community, how R&D challenges can be overcome.

Elsevier's R&D Solutions are utilised everyday across the life science industry to enable research and accelerate confident decision making in drug discovery and development. The industry faces significant challenges; from overcoming antibiotic resistance in the absence of new drugs, to reducing the chance of unanticipated adverse events, to being able to deliver on the promise of precision medicine. For the industry to make meaningful impact, access to the latest insights from data, powerful analytics, and technologies to help R&D professionals, is essential. For the startups that will be joining The Hive, Elsevier's R&D Solutions will help them achieve faster scientific breakthroughs, giving them the potential to change the industry's landscape and improve the lives of patients.

The top candidates for The Hive 2017 are pre-revenue pharmaceutical and biotech startups, and other small companies, that are actively involved in the advancement of early stage research; with a minimum of ten scientists on staff. Enrollment for The Hive is open now and candidate companies may apply or can be nominated. Candidates will complete a questionnaire about their research, funding and goals for the next 18 months; followed by Elsevier's Solution Finder to assess which solutions will be most beneficial. Prior to final selection, designated candidates will then be invited to undertake a phone interview.

ScienceOpen launches MyScienceOpen
- 30 May 2017

Research network ScienceOpen has announced the launch of MyScienceOpen, a professional networking platform designed for the modern research environment. By leveraging the power of ORCID, MyScienceOpen is an integrated profile where academics can visualise their research impact through enhanced author-level metrics.

Since 2013, ScienceOpen has been at the forefront of technological innovation in advanced search and discovery, open peer review, and content management.

Key new features include interactive visualisations of an author's readers, citations, and Altmetric scores for all their publications, all within the context of a discovery environment of 31 million articles. Authors can now also add non-specialist summaries and images to their article records, and integrate this into our existing collections and open evaluation tools. Ultimately, this will make their research more publicly accessible, drive usage from a diverse range of audiences, and increase its impact.

ScienceOpen is the platform where mutualistic engagement between publishers and academics drives research forward.

SAGE Publishing relaunches MethodSpace with new Big Data Hub
- 02 Feb 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced the relaunch of its popular MethodSpace website, a free-entry online community with over 20,000 registered social and behavioural science researchers. The revamped site includes a hub focused on how social science research is using big data.

Since 2009 MethodSpace has been a convening place for academics and practitioners across all traditions of social science methodology - qualitative, quantitative and combinations of those approaches. The new Big Data Hub is an extension of MethodSpace's aim and mission, and reflects discussions on the methodological advances being made in computational social science, focused on helping scholars stay up-to-date.

The transition includes improved aesthetics and taxonomy to help community members find the information and ideas necessary for their research, together with new features and content, including blog series Methods in Action or the Learning to Research and Illuminating Methods collections from SAGE author and Walden University faculty member Janet Salmons. In addition to an extensive set of links to other resources in the methods arena, it posts calls for academic papers, job opportunities and how-to's, as well as comprehensive global events listings.

SAGE has been a publisher of research methodology content since launching its first social science research methods journal in 1972 and the Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences series ("little green books") soon after. Its methods portfolio has since grown to include a comprehensive library of methods reference content and a suite of born-digital products such as video, case studies, and statistical databases to support scholars and practitioners.

CDL, Harvard Library, and UCLA Library partner to create Coweb, a collaborative collection development for web archives
- 20 Oct 2016

A partnership between the CDL, Harvard Library, and UCLA Library has been awarded funding from IMLS to create Cobweb, a collaborative collection development platform for web archiving, https://github.com/CobwebOrg/cobweb.

The demands of archiving the web in comprehensive breadth or thematic depth easily exceed the technical and financial capacity of any single institution. To ensure that the limited resources of archiving programs are deployed most effectively, it is important that their curators know something about the collection development priorities and holdings of other, similarly-engaged institutions. Cobweb will meet this need by supporting three key functions - nominating, claiming, and holdings. The nomination function will let curators and stakeholders suggest web sites pertinent to specific thematic areas; the claiming function will allow archival programs to indicate an intention to capture some subset of nominated sites; and the holdings function will allow programs to document sites that have actually been captured.

Cobweb will help libraries and archives make better informed decisions regarding the allocation of their individual programmatic resources, and promote more effective institutional collaboration and sharing.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
