Research Square offering AJE Author Services&Videos via new platform
- 18 Jul 2019

Researchers who post a preprint to Research Square can now access AJE author services and Research Square videos to improve their manuscript and better communicate their findings. After the launch of the multidisciplinary platform in Fall 2018, Research Square has seen record uptake and now hosts more than 3,200 preprints, making it the world's fastest growing preprint platform.

Authors can choose from AJE English language editing, and manuscript, figure and table formatting services to improve their manuscript's readability while they wait for community feedback. Research Square videos let authors promote their research to a wider audience by providing a synopsis in a 1-minute overview 'video byte' or a 2-3 minute animation known as a video abstract.

The addition of author services that can improve and better position early stage research toward publication is a step forward for preprints.

Since 2004, AJE has provided manuscript preparation services to help researchers successfully communicate their work. Having edited over 700,000 manuscripts, AJE claims to be the world's largest author services provider.

Research Square will continue to add existing services to the platform such as editorial badges in integrity, reproducibility, and statistics. Badges will allow preprint authors to demonstrate the quality of their article to editors and reviewers and speed up the time it takes to peer review.

IOP Publishing announces inaugural issues of energy and biomedical journals
- 18 Jul 2019

The first content has been published in two IOP Publishing's journals portfolio - Progress in Energy (PRGE) and Progress in Biomedical Engineering (PRGB).

The two journals were launched to cater for the needs of specific research communities, providing a platform for knowledge sharing and offering researchers the opportunity to collaborate and shape the future direction of research in their fields.

PRGE aims to address the wide-ranging and important issues facing the world's energy transition system. Nigel Brandon of Imperial College London serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. The three articles in PRGE's first issue reflect the range of topics the Journal will address.

PRGB features reviews and opinion pieces in the most significant and interesting areas of biomedical engineering research. Metin Sitti of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. In PRGB's first issue, there are two review and one perspective articles.

The Pistoia Alliance to develop a toolkit to support implementation of the FAIR Guiding Principles
- 17 Jul 2019

The Pistoia Alliance, a global non-profit that works to lower barriers to innovation in life sciences R&D, has announced the launch of its FAIR Implementation project, backed by pharmaceutical companies including Roche, Astra Zeneca, and Bayer. The first project milestone by the end of 2019 will be the release of a freely accessible toolkit to help companies implement the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) guiding principles for data management and stewardship. As the life sciences industry continues to transform digitally, the sector needs clear and practical guidance on how data and relevant metadata is captured and managed to foster greater collaboration and more effective partnerships.

The FAIR guiding principles help to meet this need, but many companies are struggling to implement the guidelines as discussed recently by Wise and co-authors. This need will be addressed by development of the FAIR toolkit which will consist of selected tools, best practices, training materials, use cases, and methodology for change management, which will be assembled together on a user-friendly and freely accessible website. It will help organisations to undertake their digital transformation, make preparations for the Lab of the Future (LoTF) and to accelerate the application of AI and deep learning.

Life science organisations are becoming increasingly aware that data is a corporate asset, while at the same time, the 'data deluge' continues to put scientists under pressure. Data needs to be better managed to build a more collaborative research environment, and made shareable and interoperable, if the industry is to continue making breakthroughs. The FAIR guiding principles for data management and stewardship were published in 2016 by Wilkinson and collaborators to emphasise machine-actionability of well managed data so that computational systems can find, access, interoperate and reuse data with minimal human intervention. This allows humans to cope with the daunting scale of the increasing volume and complexity of data being generated now. FAIR is also crucial for AI and machine learning which benefits from large, harmonised data sets for better predictions.

The Pistoia Alliance is inviting more members to join the FAIR Implementation project team to help steer it and ensure it meets industry requirements. The group is also looking for other organisations in the industry to join the Community of Interest and to contribute feedback.

Taylor&Francis introduces new online library collection and teaching facility aiming to help create a sustainable future
- 12 Jul 2019

Academic publisher Taylor&Francis has introduced its new Sustainable Development Goals Online platform, featuring an online library of over 12,000 articles and chapters - covering some of the world's biggest ongoing challenges - as well as a selection of materials to help lecturers teach sustainability and enhance students' satisfaction with their institutions.

This new venture from Taylor&Francis provides a platform in which to engage higher education students, their tutors, and the researchers in their universities, in learning about and addressing the issues set out in the 17 United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - including poverty, inequality, climate change, pollution, and conflict.

Developed alongside various UN bodies, SDGO provides an interdisciplinary collection of digital content - including Taylor&Francis' books and journals across all disciplines, themed around the SDGs -, as well as teaching and learning materials including presentations, videos, case studies, teaching guides, and lesson plans.

The aim of the new platform is to enable students and tutors to deliver the change they want throughout their careers and lives.

According to a global survey of 1,800 recent university graduates, 96% expect to be involved in sustainability in some way during their careers. 70% of respondents also believe that sustainability should be covered by their university course. Those students believe their university should teach them how to apply the principles of sustainability in their careers, equipping them to be effective advocates for the changes that they know needs to happen through their whole lifetime. And they are putting pressure on universities to meet their expectations.

This pressure means that the momentum for sustainable education is building across the world.

Harnessing the energy and brainpower of the student population behind the SDGs, Taylor&Francis is looking to help build the next generation of leaders who have sustainable development hard-wired into their sensibilities with its launch of SDGO.

Pensoft welcomes Neotropical Biology&Conservation to its open-access journal portfolio
- 10 Jul 2019

Open-access, peer-reviewed journal Neotropical Biology&Conservation has announced its move to the journal family of scholarly publisher and technology provider Pensoft.

Neotropical Biology&Conservation welcomes research and review articles, short communications and commentaries on the biology and behaviour of organisms from the tropical ecoregions of the Americas and the entire South America. Special emphasis is given to papers that demonstrate the application of conservation principles for natural resource management and policy. Manuscripts can be published in Portuguese, as well as English, where an English-language abstract is mandatory.

Beyond Neotropical Biology&Conservation's new glossy and user-friendly appearance, the Pensoft-developed scholarly platform ARPHA provides its signature fast-track, end-to-end publishing system to the benefit of its users: authors, reviewers and editors alike. Thereby, each submitted manuscript is carried through the review, editing, publication, dissemination and archiving stages without leaving ARPHA's collaboration-centred online environment.

The journal is published three times a year, with the first 2019 issue already available on the new website. New research papers, part of the second issue, will be out July 15, 2019.
