Frontiers in Physiology launches new section - Environmental, Aviation and Space Physiology
- 20 Nov 2017

Frontiers in Physiology has launched a new section, 'Environmental, Aviation and Space Physiology'. This is the third section launch in the journal this year, following expansions into 'Avian Physiology' and 'Embryonic and Developmental Physiology'.

The section will be led by two co-Specialty Chief Editors, Professors Richard Boyle of the NASA Ames Research Centre, USA, and Hanns-Christian Gunga of Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.

The section will consider many of the challenges humans face on Earth and in space. Organisms, both animal and human, must by necessity adapt to their surroundings to survive. Environmental changes may be gradual, as seen in climate change, or drastic, such as propelling an organism into space. In order to understand how our animals are adapting to their habitats, and to know how the human body copes with exposure to extreme environments, research into physiological change becomes ever more important.

Even as high altitudes, arctic conditions and changing climates on Earth push animal and human bodies to extremes, it is a feat of human achievement to consider the substantial technological advances made in space travel. Professors Boyle and Gunga emphasized the importance of these developments in their mission statement.

Springer launches new interdisciplinary psychology journal - Human Arenas
- 17 Nov 2017

Springer, part of Springer Nature, has launched a scholarly peer-reviewed journal which promotes the interdisciplinary study of higher psychological functions in human phenomena. The journal, Human Arenas, will publish a mix of theoretical and empirical studies, focusing on the analysis and critical discussion of crucial, meaningful data. Submissions will be accepted from November 15, 2017, and the first issue will be published in spring 2018. Rather than an accumulation of empirical evidence, Human Arenas encourages the exploration of ideas and productive thinking through novel forms of scientific enquiry and writing.

The journal will be headed by two editors-in-chief - Pina Marsico of the University of Salerno in Italy, and Luca Tateo from the Centre for Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University in Denmark. The vision of the journal is to provide an interdisciplinary space for debate in which psychology researchers can share knowledge in dialogue with researchers in all other social science disciplines. Issues will be available both online and in print, and authors will have the option of publishing open access.

Human Arenas encourages contributions from all disciplines of psychology, as well as those researchers working in the fields of philosophy, anthropology, sociology, history, geography, and even biology.

Five journals to move to Presses universitaires de France in 2018
- 16 Nov 2017

Presses universitaires de France (Puf) will continue publishing four NecPlus journals, which will be released on January 1, 2018 - Enfance, L'Année psychologique, Communication&Langages, and Revue d'études comparatives Est- Ouest (Receo). At the same time, Puf will also publish the Archives juives journal.

Enfance aims to promote original research about childhood in the field of cognitive, sensory, motor, affective, social, and communicative development. L'Année psychologique, founded in 1894 by Alfred Binet, contains articles drawn from various sub-disciplines of cognitive psychology. Communication&Langages strives to decipher the fundamental changes occurring in information science and communications science. Receo, being comparative and multidisciplinary, publishes original research from the field of European and Eurasian geography. Archives juives offers texts on the history of French and North African Jews, primarily focused on the contemporary era.

These journals will be available in hard copy and in an electronic version on cairn.info, which will provide access, if necessary, to all the archives previously available on necplus.eu. Puf will oversee subscriptions.

African Academy of Science partners with F1000 to launch AAS Open Research publication platform
- 16 Nov 2017

The African Academy of Sciences, in partnership with F1000, is launching a publication platform, AAS Open Research, to enable AAS funded and affiliated researchers to publish immediately and without barriers. AAS Open Research will showcase African research on the global stage in an immediate and transparent way.

AAS Open Research will join a growing number of funder publication platforms, such as those operated on behalf of Wellcome and the Bill&Melinda Gates Foundation, and soon Ireland's Health Research Board. The platforms are based on a model developed by F1000Research, which uses immediate publication and transparent post-publication peer review.

The platform will launch in early 2018, AAS- affiliated researcher and those funded through the funding and science agenda platform that the Academy created with the NEPAD Agency, the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA) will be able to publish there.

Research from lower income economies is often perceived differently from that of high income countries, which can influence whether an article is published or rejected by a journal. AAS Open Research addresses this issue, as AAS Fellows and AESA-funded researchers, rather than editors, will decide when and what they wish to publish, creating a level playing field with research from the rest of the world.

Once published on AAS Open Research, all articles will undergo transparent peer review by experts from around the world. Peer review will be driven by authors themselves, within strict criteria. Peer review reports, together with names and affiliations of the reviewers, will be published alongside the articles. Authors have the option to revise the article in response to reviewer comments, publishing new versions at their discretion. With all articles, the underlying data and any associated software code will be freely available to anyone.

AAS Open Research will be especially beneficial to early career researchers, building capacity within the research community. The immediacy will help enable early career researchers to complete qualifications, so they can progress their careers. In addition, transparency throughout the publication process facilitates the ability of researchers to develop and sustain the skills needed to effectively share and discuss their research broadly.

Crossref announces new Metadata APIs 'Plus' service from January 2018
- 15 Nov 2017

Crossref has announced a new paid-for service from January 2018 for machine access to metadata along with guaranteed uptime and priority support, with notifications of new matching records and 'snapshot' downloads to be added in the first quarter. The announcement was made during its Annual Meeting, LIVE17.

Publishers register content with Crossref by depositing metadata so that they do not have to make bilateral agreements with third parties, or each other. Crossref makes this metadata openly available via APIs so that people and machines around the world can incorporate it into their tools and services to aid research. This metadata can be retrieved via a choice of APIs to find, cite, link, and assess research outputs. It means that publishers only have to send the metadata to one place to have their content discovered and used by the thousands of tools and services that rely on Crossref as a source of information about research outputs.

Other early adopters in the first couple of weeks include: Reprints Desk; Science-Metrix; ScienceOpen; and Technical Information Center of Denmark (DTU Library).
