American Physical Society releases new physics classification scheme, PhySH
- 24 Sep 2018

The American Physical Society (APS) has announced that PhySH, APS's new physics classification scheme, is now publicly available under a Creative Commons CC0 license. Created to provide a fully open, high-quality classification scheme for the entire physics community, PhySH groups concepts into a flexible hierarchy that organises content by topics.

At its core, PhySH concepts are grouped into both facets and disciplines. Facets are broad groupings of concepts organised according to the general role they serve, while disciplines are specialties within physics used to narrow the list of concepts. Users are encouraged to make contributions and suggestions to ensure that PhySH becomes a trusted resource for the physics community.

PhySH can seamlessly integrate into other classification schemes and provide users new and useful ways to browse and search within their database. Under the CC0 license, users are allowed to copy, modify, redistribute, or otherwise make any use of its concepts and their relationships and identifiers.

JPhys Materials publishes its inaugural issue
- 20 Sep 2018

JPhys Materials, a journal focusing on interdisciplinary research marrying chemical, physical and engineering aspects of materials study, has published its first issue.

The new IOP Publishing journal showcases the most significant and exciting developments in materials science research, all of which are published open access to encourage maximum collaboration, reproducibility and dissemination of research.

In the first issue of JPhys Materials, a team from Imperial College London, the National Physical Laboratory (UK), and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Saudi Arabia) investigate using adhesion lithography (a-Lith) for the development of nano-gap organic light emitting diodes on a variety of substrates including glass and plastic.

They suggest a-Lith offers excellent compatibility with different substrate materials including temperature sensitive and flexible plastic substrates, and expect the work to pave the way to a wide range of applications in the emerging fields of large-area, nanoelectronics.

JPhys Materials is led by Editor-in-Chief Professor Stephan Roche, from the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) and the Catalan Institute of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (ICN2).

The journal's coverage will extend across: Materials characterisation; Materials properties; Computational materials science and modelling; Materials applications; and Synthesis and fabrication.

Verseon unveils new blockchain technology
- 19 Sep 2018

Verseon has unveiled transformative blockchain technology for tokenised securities, developed by its wholly owned subsidiary, BlockRules Ltd. Since its founding in 2002, Verseon aims to develop disruptive technologies and products that advance global health. As part of this, the company is challenging traditional drug development funding models through the process of tokenisation of securities.

BlockRules technology supports the sale, launch, and trading of securities on a public blockchain complete with multi-jurisdictional regulatory compliance integrated and enforced directly on the blockchain. This breakthrough permits fully regulated, secure, and transparent support of securities, including decentralised trading.

Current blockchain technology has the potential to transform the global investment landscape. To accomplish that, token offerings need to comply with existing security regulations if they are to become ubiquitous. The technology developed by BlockRules is designed to overcome these regulatory hurdles.

BlockRules Ltd. plans to offer its technology to innovative companies ready to embrace the rapidly developing blockchain community. By bringing regulatory certainty to the blockchain, BlockRules aims to provide the global investment community with safer and more relevant opportunities for investment.

Hindawi launches new peer review platform built on open-source PubSweet framework
- 19 Sep 2018

Hindawi Limited has announced the launch of a new peer review platform built using the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation's (Coko) open source PubSweet framework.

This is the first complete open-source peer review system to come out of the Coko community, a group of like-minded organisations, including eLife, the European Bioinformatics Institute, and the University of California Press, keen on working collaboratively towards the advancement of openness in scholarly communications software.

Hindawi's system is launching on the open access journal Bioinorganic Chemistry and Applications. The new system will power a traditional editorial workflow, led by new Editor-in-Chief Dr. Francesco Paolo Fanizzi. Gathering feedback from editors, reviewers, and authors, Hindawi plans to extend the system to serve multiple journals running several editorial models.

Given the open source nature of the platform, other publishers, societies, and institutions will be free to reuse the software and adapt the system to new uses.

Additional details about the system and the decision to support open source is available at http://about.hindawi.com/blog/hindawi-launches-new-open-source-peer-review-system.

BMJ to publish first issue of General Psychiatry
- 19 Sep 2018

Healthcare knowledge provider BMJ will publish the first issue of General Psychiatry, previously known as Shanghai Archives of Psychiatry.

Working in partnership with Shanghai Medical Health Centre (SMHC), the journal is dedicated to publishing high quality, peer reviewed articles for mental health professionals, whilst offering free publication for authors.

The journal will be a fully open access publication, ensuring articles are openly available for all to read.

As the first English language psychiatric journal in mainland China, this journal has been innovating and evolving throughout its 59 year history, and BMJ will be a part of continuing this tradition. The first step on this journey is to change the journal's title and look to one which better represents the shared vision and ambitions for the journal, and confirms General Psychiatry as a firm member of the BMJ family.
