Seven publisher partners sign up to Kudos' Shareable PDF for author sharing
- 10 Oct 2018

Kudos, a platform for managing research dissemination, has announced that seven more publisher partners have signed up to switch on the Shareable PDF (S-PDF) feature and enable their authors to use Kudos for managing and evaluating PDF-based sharing.

S-PDF makes it easy for researchers to create and share plain language summaries of their work, encapsulated in PDFs that can be uploaded to PDF-based sharing services. The service has been widely adopted by authors as well as publishers, with over 5,000 authors having shared S-PDFs since launch. They benefit from S-PDF's ability to 'report back' on the readership of work in otherwise closed websites, enabling the discovery value of these sites to be compared on a like-for-like basis with other online and offline sharing efforts, via Kudos' unique dissemination management service.

The most recent publishers to sign up are: Annals of Saudi Medicine; ASTM International; BMJ; Edinburgh University Press; Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group (JNSPG); and Liverpool University Press.

S-PDFs link readers through to full text on publisher websites, and dovetail with other initiatives designed to help researchers improve copyright-compliant visibility for their work on scholarly collaboration networks and via other PDF-based sharing platforms and media.

The Kudos shareable PDF is now available for any publisher who wishes to activate this feature, whether a current Kudos customer or not.

- 04 Oct 2018

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) continues its commitment to providing libraries and their patrons with access to high-quality e-book content by making more than 120,000 EBSCO eBooks Digital Rights Management (DRM) free. The DRM-free initiative reinforces EBSCO's commitment to working with publishers to increase e-book options for libraries.

With DRM-free EBSCO eBooks, users can download either the full-book or unlimited chapters with no sign-in required, read them in any application and transfer them to any device. Users can select either PDF or EPUB for online viewing and download, and take advantage of Google Drive integration and smartphone/mobile optimisation. EBSCO continues to invest in several accessibility initiatives for e-books, including enhanced linking to key content, improved keyboard navigation and working with publishers on best practices. With EBSCO eBooks, librarians have the choice between the DRM-free unlimited user version of a title or a limited user model with standard DRM-protection, enabling them to maximise their budgets and customise their collections to meet user demand. There are no access fees, platform fees, or service fees for EBSCO eBooks, and libraries can soon enjoy rapid MARC record delivery for cataloged titles within hours of purchase. For the EBSCO eBooks that remain DRM-protected, users can still easily download DRM-free chapters.

DRM-free EBSCO eBooks can be purchased on a title-by-title basis through preferred ordering services, including EBSCOhost® Collection Manager (ECM), OASIS® and GOBI®, the web-based acquisitions tool for academic libraries. GOBI offers more than 850,000 DRM-free titles to libraries and claims to be the largest source for DRM-free e-books for academic librarians.

Digital Science and the Ohio Department of Higher Education launch new online platform, OIEx
- 28 Sep 2018

Research technology company Digital Science and the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) have launched The Ohio Innovation Exchange (OIEx). The new online platform connects industry with faculty, students, equipment, and facilities available at Ohio's research universities. OIEx consolidates these academic resources from multiple universities into a single, searchable, and easily accessible web portal.

Combining the research information management capabilities of Symplectic Elements and the search and discovery power of Dimensions, OIEx allows visitors to: find relevant experts and suitable potential collaborators; explore each institution's publications, patents, and equipment; and connect with the OIEx network of industry liaisons to find more information and create relationships with researchers and institutions.

An initiative of ODHE and built by Digital Science, OIEx was originally developed by four Ohio universities with industry support from the Ohio Manufacturing Institute. OIEx is now a publicly available platform that, in its current phase, provides industry in search of expertise with free access to more than 8,250 faculty members and 900 resources from the following universities - Case Western University, Ohio University, The Ohio State University, Cleveland State University, The University of Akron, and the University of Cincinatti.

From research partnerships, intellectual property, and technology licensing opportunities to business development and even student internships, OIEx brings those connections to bear, and the scope of OIEx will expand further as other institutions join.
