The American Society of Plant Biologists' flagship journals now live on HighWire Press's JCore platform
- 23 Jun 2017

The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) has announced that its two flagship journals, The Plant Cell and Plant Physiology, are now live on HighWire's JCore platform. The Society will demonstrate the new sites at their upcoming Plant Biology 2017 annual meeting in Hawaii, which starts this June 24.

According to HighWire Press CEO, Dan Filby, ASPB's move to HighWire's powerful JCore platform allows the Society to disseminate their rich content more effectively and dynamically. The new sites' features, functionality, and UX design, ensure that readers and authors can find what they're looking for when they need it.

The new sites are available at: www.plantcell.org and www.plantphysiol.org

Emerald unveils new challenger Case Study product
- 22 Jun 2017

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has launched Emerald eCase Collection, a new challenger case studies product designed to improve the business school learning experience. eCase Collection provides institutions with unlimited access to a growing digital library of over 1,500 real life business situation case studies from a range of leading business schools and contributing partners.

In addition, eCase Collection provides content from The CASE Journal (TCJ) and Emerging Markets Case Studies (EMCS), which include new case studies from established and emerging international markets by leading academics in their fields, with EMCS not available through other suppliers. This means that faculty and students will have access to an ever-growing bank of high quality and innovative case studies if their institutions are eCase Collection customers.

eCase Collection is hosted alongside other content on Emerald's publishing platform, emeraldinsight.com, greatly increasing the potential for dissemination through enhanced discoverability. Supporting materials or exercises are included with all case studies to offer guidance on how the case can be taught in class, thereby improving the learning experience; and teaching resources written purely for faculty are hidden from student view.

Emerald has published case studies since 2011 and understands their importance. By continuing to develop case study products to help educators deliver an enhanced student experience, this unique and exciting way of learning builds students' confidence and develops work and life skills, enhancing employability.

With the rise of experiential learning, cases studies remain a fundamental teaching tool in every subject area within the business school discipline.

Elsevier announces publication of seven new oil and gas industry titles
- 16 Jun 2017

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of Compositional Grading in Oil and Gas Reservoirs by Rogerio Oliveira Esposito, Pedro Henrique Rodrigues Alijó, Jose Antonio Scilipoti and Frederico Wanderley Tavares. One of seven new oil and gas industry titles, this valuable reference offers instruction, examples and case studies to respond to the challenges of modelling a compositional gradient subject. It combines practical studies with the importance of modelling more complex phenomena, enabling current and upcoming reservoir engineers to produce stronger production curves, reserve estimations, and future development strategies. Multiple examples and case studies are included to help them make sense of their reservoir's output results.

The seven new oil and gas industry titles are: Compositional Grading in Oil and Gas Reservoirs by Rogerio Oliveira Esposito, Pedro Henrique Rodrigues Alijó, Jose Antonio Scilipoti and Frederico Wanderley Tavares by Robert Bruce Hey; Fire Pump Arrangements at Industrial Facilities, Third Edition by Dennis P. Nolan; Pipeline Integrity: Management and Risk Evaluation, Second Edition by Ramesh Singh; Lacustrine Shale Gas: Case Study from the Ordos Basin by Xiangzeng Wang; The Science and Technology of Unconventional Oils: Finding Refining Opportunities by Magdalena Ramirez-Corredores; and Blowout and Well Control Handbook, Second Edition by Robert D. Grace.

In order to meet content needs in the oil and gas industries, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books will seek to educate the next generation of oil and gas engineers, and provide critical foundational content for information professionals.
