Project MUSE offers nearly 300 'HTML5' open access books on re-designed platform
- 25 Sep 2018

Project MUSE, a provider of digital Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) content, has announced the availability of nearly 300 open access (OA) books on its new re-designed platform. The books will be delivered in a highly-discoverable and adaptable format using user-friendly HTML5, rather than static PDFs, and will include titles from Johns Hopkins University Press, Cornell University Press, Duke University Press, University of Hawai'i Press, University of Michigan Press, Syracuse University Press, The MIT Press, and Temple University Press.

The new 'HTML5 OA' titles greatly enhance a collection of almost 600 OA books in PDF format that were already available on MUSE, bringing the total of OA books to over 800. MUSE plans to add more HTML5 OA books each year. The initiative was made possible by a two-year grant of nearly $1 million from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Funds were used to develop an open source workflow for transforming epub files into HTML5 and, most importantly for users, launch a scholar-informed redesign of the Project MUSE interface that emphasises simplicity, accessibility, and personalisation. The redesigned platform includes robust support for discovery and linking, along with preservation with trusted third parties, assuring wide dissemination of OA book content on MUSE. The platform's enhanced analytics services will help publishers understand the impact of making books freely available.

Project MUSE anticipates hosting hundreds more OA scholarly books, funded through initiatives including the NEH Humanities Open Book program, Knowledge Unlatched, TOME, Mellon grants, and other publisher- and institution-driven programs. Open access content on MUSE is fully integrated and supported alongside the more than 54,000 books and over 650 scholarly journal titles also on the platform.

67 Bricks and BMJ launch new editorial production system, Knowledge Base
- 25 Sep 2018

67 Bricks has announced the launch of Knowledge Base, a new editorial production system for publishing client BMJ Best Practice.

The custom-built new system pulls together information and advice on 800 medical conditions in 30 specialist areas and enables clinicians to access and use that information quickly and effectively at point of care. The new Knowledge Base not only allows BMJ to update and maintain their content effectively but has also opened the door for future product innovation.

BMJ wanted to innovate their product in line with clinicians' needs, but the content was being created, stored and presented in ways that made this difficult. BMJ therefore took a strategic decision to build a completely new editorial production system, and crucially, to change the underlying data structure of the content. This was a large scale project with a limited timescale and hence careful planning was essential.

IOS Press announces new affiliation between NeuroRehabilitation and Cochrane Rehabilitation
- 25 Sep 2018

STM publisher IOS Press has announced a new affiliation between NeuroRehabilitation (NRE) and Cochrane Rehabilitation to improve evidence-based neurorehabilitation practice. Abstracts from specially selected Cochrane Systematic Reviews relevant to neurorehabilitation will be published in NRE in a new section, Cochrane Corners.

The new publishing mechanism will enable the communication of Cochrane evidence in a simple and easily understandable format, augmented with commentaries on the relevance of the key messages for rehabilitation of the summarised Cochrane Reviews, as well as implications of the evidence for clinical practice.

NRE's Editors-in-Chief, Jeffrey S. Kreutzer of Virginia Commonwealth University, and Nathan S. Zasler, of Concussion Care Centre of Virginia Ltd, will select relevant neurorehabilitation Cochrane Reviews for Cochrane Corners to be published in the journal.

Members of Cochrane Rehabilitation and/or rehabilitation professionals will develop the content for Cochrane Corners, to include summaries of Cochrane Reviews as selected by the NRE Editors-in-Chief and accompanying commentaries. All Cochrane Corner content will be exclusive to the journal and will undergo peer review prior to publication.

A call for authors to write summaries and commentaries of Cochrane Systematic Reviews has received broad acceptance.

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.
