RedLink announces new release of Remarq, enhancements significantly increase collaborative aspects of the decentralised scholarly network
- 10 Oct 2017

RedLink has announced the latest release of Remarq, which includes three levels of group collaboration: Private Groups - only those invited by the host are aware of the group and can participate; Protected Groups - publishers can create these groups, which anyone can find and request to join; Public Groups - these groups are open to anyone at any time.

Readers, authors, editors, and publishers all have the opportunity to create group conversations and invite members for research, classroom teaching, or other collaborative projects. Users can share annotations, comments, images, links, and files, and discuss articles with other group members.

Remarq is a collaboration tool supporting highlighting, private notes, commenting, and article sharing, all on the publisher's site and utilizing the version of record. Remarq provides a powerful and smoothly integrated set of tools that support authors, editors, and users. By supporting engagement on the version of record, Remarq offers the opportunity to leverage author updates, supplemental information or data, and additional assets related to the article, creating a rich environment for collaboration. Remarq's ORCID integration makes it easy to create a robust profile with just one click.

New data offers a more comprehensive view of online sharing and discussion for thousands of books
- 05 Sep 2017

Data science company Altmetric has started tracking attention to books listed on Amazon, providing further insights into the online discussions and engagement relating to individual titles.

This new capability has already produced huge volumes of attention data - in just a few days Altmetric has found over 145,000 new mentions of 3,000 Amazon-listed books from Twitter, and over 20,000 mentions from other sources such as news, blogs and policy documents. Around 2 million mentions a year that relate directly to an Amazon record for a book are expected.

This data will be combined with attention data Altmetric is already tracking to the publisher and Google hosted version of books. Together the data is then disambiguated to provide a real-time report of engagement in the Altmetric details pages, accessible via the embeddable Badges and Explorer platform.

Amazon tracking is live now, and the attention data is accessible via Altmetric badges and Explorer platform.

SSRN launches ChemRN - a new network dedicated to chemistry
- 08 Aug 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, has announced that SSRN, its working paper repository and preprint server, has launched the Chemistry Research Network - ChemRN.

The launch of ChemRN follows hot on the heels of the BioRN launch in June 2017, SSRN's new network dedicated to biology and its first outside the social sciences. BioRN already has nearly 5,000 papers live from approximately 6,500 authors.

Chemistry researchers can share ideas and other early stage research, including posting preprints and working papers on ChemRN. Users can quickly upload and read papers for free, across all of Chemistry, including the fields of Energy, Environmental and Materials Sciences.

Chemistry researchers can post preprints and working papers on ChemRN, share ideas and other early stage research, and collaborate. It allows users to quickly upload and read abstracts and full text papers, free of charge.

A preprint is the author's own write-up of research results and analysis that has not been peer-reviewed, nor had any value added to it by a publisher (such as formatting, copy-editing, technical enhancements). A preprint server, or working paper repository as they are also known, allows users to share these documents.

SSRN has been serving the research community since 1994 and was acquired by Elsevier in May 2016. Since joining Elsevier, SSRN has completely redesigned its website making it cleaner and easier to use. It has also launched full-text search. SSRN is now working towards deeper integration with Elsevier's other research products, particularly Mendeley's reference management software and Pure's research management system.

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.
