DataSalon launches new Publisher Dashboard service
- 04 Sep 2018

Customer insight solutions provider DataSalon has announced the launch of a major new Publisher Dashboard service - building on 12 years of close collaboration with over 20 publishers to create the most comprehensive and flexible dashboards available, tailored specifically for scholarly publishers.

The new Publisher Dashboard service is the only solution in the market to offer publisher-specific dashboards which cover the complete customer picture - not just of institutional usage and denials data, but also of author submissions, journal subs, book sales, and individual customer and member contacts.

It is also the only solution available which provides full integration with GRID or Ringgold as standard, so that real-world publisher data is automatically linked, cleaned, and deduped for truly accurate results.

The Publisher Dashboards provide significant financial benefits to publishers, including: targeting new prospects where institutions have high author submissions, access denials, or pay per view purchases; cross-referring journal and book purchases to identify new subject/package sales opportunities; reporting 'at risk' customers with high cost per download or declining usage; and driving article submissions by identifying relevant authors at subscribing institutions.

DataSalon has over a decade of experience working with many of the world's most innovative scholarly publishers, and dashboards are already being enthusiastically rolled out to sales, marketing, and editorial staff by publishers including Wiley, Taylor&Francis, and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

A huge range of functionality is supported, including charts, maps and tables; Venn diagrams and cross-tabs; and even a 'family tree' view to visualise hierarchical relationships. Dashboards are fully interactive allowing users to drill right down to explore row-level detail for every customer. There are no limits on the number of different dashboards which can be configured, or on the number of staff using the system.

Dashboards are simple to set up and simple to use, with full support from DataSalon staff. Publishers can choose to include as many or as few data sources as they wish, and the system supports data transfer standards such as SUSHI for COUNTER reports, and the ScholarOne API for author submissions data.

Springer Nature adds Fire Ecology to SpringerOpen portfolio
- 04 Sep 2018

Open research publisher Springer Nature has announced the addition of Fire Ecology to the SpringerOpen portfolio. Supported by the Association for Fire Ecology this journal publishes articles on all ecological and management aspects relating to wildland fire.

The journal has published important articles on all ecological and management aspects relating to wildland fire, including its effects on landscapes and ecosystems since 2005. It is managed and fully supported by the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE). It has been and will continue to be an online, fully open access publication that is freely available to read without a subscription.

Fire Ecology's readership has so far been focused in the US and the journal has therefore had limited international impact. It has always been a major goal of AFE to elevate the reputation of the journal and expand its reach internationally to make it an important global reference for fire ecology.

In May of 2017, AFE began negotiations with Springer Nature to move the journal from the AFE-sponsored website onto the SpringerOpen publishing platform. AFE was impressed with the high-quality Springer Nature websites and publication products, and more importantly, the extensive marketing and indexing services. As a result, AFE signed a contract to transfer the journal to the SpringerOpen.

All previously published articles will also be moved from the AFE website and hosted permanently on the new Fire Ecology website, so that the historic publications that made the journal what it is today are fully searchable within the SpringerOpen publisher website.

Fire Ecology continues to be open access and freely available to all who want to read the full articles. This has not changed, but the move to an international publisher has resulted in some changes to the journal's operation that warrant mention.

Perhaps the most noticeable change for the new journal is the pricing structure. The publication charges have increased significantly compared to the charges when the journal was published solely by AFE. This allows us to take advantage of all of Springer Nature's enhanced and rigorous processes and systems for submission, peer review and production, to provide valued authors with a high quality publication experience.

Multifunctional Materials publishes its inaugural issue
- 30 Aug 2018

Multifunctional Materials, a journal serving an emerging field at the convergence of materials science, physics, chemistry, bioscience, and engineering, recently published its first issue.

The design and manufacture of materials capable of multiple functions - so called 'multifunctional' materials - has emerged as a rapidly growing area in materials science.

It is characterised by multidisciplinary research, and the potential for wide-ranging innovation covering areas such as energy, environmental sustainability, healthcare, aerospace, nanoelectronics, soft robotics and semiconductors.

In the first issue of Multifunctional Materials, Trevor Buckner and Dr Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio from Yale University, USA, review how functional fibres could be used in soft robotics.

The journal is led by two editors-in-chief: Andreas Lendlein, Director of the Institute of Biomaterial Science at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research and Professor for Materials in Life Sciences at Potsdam University, and Richard Trask, Chair in Advanced Materials at the Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS) and a Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol.

The journal aims to cover: the design and manufacture of programmed materials for multifunctionality, morphing and adaptivity; 'Meta-materials' designed and created through current chemistry or synthetic biology; multifunctional materials designed with capabilities of intelligent systems, such as sensing and self-diagnosis; characterisation methods for functions, multiscale modelling and computational materials engineering; and novel applications of functional multi-materials.

Multifunctional Materials is free to read for individual users, universities, and academic research institutes throughout 2018.

Zheng Yu Jin, president of the Chinese Society of Radiology, will serve as the journal's first editor-in-chief. Its international editorial board will include radiologists and other imaging experts. The publication will include original articles, review, editorials, short communications, technical note and letters to the editor.

The Chinese Journal of Academic Radiology provides a communication forum for all international scholars and radiologists in the area of clinical practice and translational research on imaging techniques including radiology, image-fused nuclear medicine and ultrasound. A comprehensive resource, it covers the latest findings and developments in the field of diagnostic imaging and image-guided interventional techniques.

All articles will be open access in 2018 and 2019.
