Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced the release of The SAGE Encyclopedia of Intellectual and Developmental Disorders.

Compiled by leading psychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists, this four-volume set takes an interdisciplinary approach, covering sociocultural viewpoints, policy implications, educational applications, and ethical issues.

The publication is aimed at students who are taking courses or conducting research in the fields of clinical psychology, child development, health sciences, nursing, education, human development, and family studies. The included Reader's Guide helps students navigate through more than 500 entries by organising related articles thematically.

Microbiology Society launches new Open Science journal, Access Microbiology
- 07 Sep 2018

The Microbiology Society has announced the launch of their new Open Science journal, Access Microbiology. The journal introduces a new service to members of the community allowing the publication of replication studies, negative or null results, research proposals, data management plans, additions to established methods, and interdisciplinary work.

Too many of these valuable research outputs have been lost because they are not seen as 'high impact', creating a situation in which research is re-done in multiple labs for no gain. Access Microbiology aims to reduce this kind of research waste, so the publication criteria are based on methodological rigour rather than novelty, and the journal is completely Open Access. To further support this goal, they encourage authors to make their data and methods available through initiatives such as figshare and protocols.io, respectively.

The journal covers: the full spectrum of microscopic life forms, from bacteria and viruses to fungi, protists, archaea, and algae; all approaches, from computational, biotechnology, and laboratory work, to environmental, clinical, and veterinary studies; and various article types including Research articles, Short communications, Methods, and Cases.

Simultaneous with the launch of Access Microbiology they are closing submissions for the standalone journal for medical microbiology case reports. The Society is committed to ensuring long-term financial sustainability across all activities, and they are closing JMM Case Reports only because Access Microbiology offers an alternative, sustainable, means of publishing case reports. The journal and every article they have published in it will remain available on the Society's journal website, www.microbiologyresearch.org. Everything is also stored for long-term preservation in both Portico and CLOCKSS.

IOP Publishing launches Environmental Research Communications to its journal portfolio
- 07 Sep 2018

IOP Publishing has launched Environmental Research Communications (ERC) as the newest addition to its journal portfolio.

ERC is an inclusive open access journal for the rapid publication of high-quality research in all areas of environmental science.

The journal does not make a subjective assessment on the potential future significance of papers. Instead, it provides authors with a rapid platform for communicating research that meets high standards of scientific validity and rigour. All types of results can be published, including negative results, null results and replication studies, provided they contribute to advancing knowledge in their field.

ERC will be guided by a senior editorial advisory panel, working closely with the in-house editorial team to ensure that the journal meets its aim of high quality peer review, rapid publication and inclusive coverage of all environmental research. As leaders in their fields, they provide final arbitration for scientific disputes, and advice on emerging subjects.

The senior editorial advisory panel comprises: Qingyun Duan, Beijing Normal University; Weijun Gao, Kitakyushu University; Pavel Groisman, North Carolina State University; Rosamond Naylor, Stanford University; Paul Palmer, University of Edinburgh; G Arturo Sanchez-Azofeifa, University of Alberta; and Wilfried Winiwarter, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

ERC is now open for submissions. As an open access title, ERC will be permanently free to read for anyone. The first issue of the journal is expected to publish in December 2018.

NISO releases draft revised Transfer Code of Practice for public comment
- 06 Sep 2018

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the release of a draft revision to the Transfer Code of Practice, a NISO Recommended Practice, for public comment. Transfer contains guidelines to help publishers ensure that journal content that is transferred between parties remains easily accessible to librarians and readers and that the transfer process occurs with minimum disruption to all stakeholders. The recommendations include steps for better organisation, communication, data transfer, and access to content, and enable a common understanding of the overall process between transferring and receiving publishers and subscribing libraries.

The NISO Transfer Standing Committee consists of publishers, librarians, and other experts who are responsible for the content of the Code of Practice and who coordinate educational programs, presentations, and other support efforts to ensure that Transfer is well-understood by its target audiences. Publishers are asked to endorse the Code and to abide by its principles wherever it is commercially reasonable to do so. An important element of Transfer is the Transfer Alerting Service (TAS), which notifies the community about journal moves and includes a searchable database archive to help with local record-keeping.

The NISO Transfer Code of Practice is available for public comment from September 5 to October 19, 2018. Interested parties may visit the NISO project page at https://www.niso.org/standards-committees/transfer, to download the draft document or submit comments.
