IOP introduces Print on Demand for journals
- 06 Jun 2018

IOP Publishing has announced that readers, researchers and authors can now order print versions of IOP Publishing journals whenever they require them. IOP Publishing's journal titles will now be available as Print on Demand (POD) copies, delivered through printing partner Hobbs.

Starting June 5, 2018, 37 titles will be available in print via this system, covering issues from 2008 onwards.

Print on demand is available through IOP Publishing's journals platform, IOPscience, and is open to all users regardless of subscription status. Cost will vary depending on the size of the issue, number of copies ordered, and the delivery location.

Annual Reviews publishes first multidisciplinary autonomous systems review journal
- 04 Jun 2018

Non-profit publisher Annual Reviews has announced the publication of the first volume of the Annual Review of Control, Robotics, and Autonomous Systems, its 49th review journal. The new journal is the first of its kind to cover both the broad fields of control and robotics and their fundamental roles in the increasingly important area of autonomous systems.

Topics in the first volume cover control and its connections to game theory, distributed optimisation, Kalman filtering, geometric mechanics, privacy, data-driven strategies, and deep learning, together with robotics and its connections to manipulation, materials, mechanisms, planning, decision-making, and synthesis. Applications include artificial touch, soft micro and bio-inspired robotics, minimally invasive medical technologies, rehabilitative robotics, autonomous flight, airspace management, and systems biology.

Tremendous progress across industry and academia has advanced the theory and applications of control, robotics, and autonomous systems. The global robotics market is expected to reach $67 billion by 2025, with significant annual growth rates, according to industry analysis conducted by Boston Consulting Group. Autonomous vehicles are already on the road and in the air, while robots vacuum floors at home. Scientists explore the ocean with fleets of autonomous underwater vehicles. At hospitals, surgeons and engineers are supported by robotics to deliver minimally invasive medical interventions, diagnostics, and drug delivery. Veterans and many others benefit from advanced prosthetics. The comprehensive reviews in the Annual Review of Control, Robotics, and Autonomous Systems provide expert syntheses that cover decades of foundational research and assess the challenges and potential future directions of these fields.

The control field features innovation, development, and application of methodologies for the design and analysis of autonomous system response to sensory feedback, with the aim of regulating the stability, speed, accuracy, efficiency, reliability, and robustness of autonomous system behaviour. The robotics field features innovation, design, analysis, creation, operation, and application of robots from industrial to nano-scale, from the bottom of the ocean, to the inside of the human body, to the surface of Mars, and everywhere in between. To fully cover the research at the nexus of control, robotics, and autonomous systems, the journal's articles connect to many related fields, including mechanics, optimisation, communication, information theory, machine learning, computing, signal processing, human behavioral sciences, and biology.

Leonard, Edwin S. Wilsey Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University, has been recognised as a MacArthur Fellow. She pursues collaborative, multidisciplinary research in control, dynamics, and robotics with engineers, oceanographers, biologists, and choreographers. She has explored the mechanisms that explain the collective dynamics of animal groups, including killifish, honeybees, caribou, and starlings, and has developed bio-inspired methodologies for control of robot teams. One of Dr. Leonard's largest projects culminated in a field demonstration in Monterey Bay, California, of an autonomous ocean-observing system that featured a coordinated network of underwater robotic gliders.

Royal Society of Chemistry and National Center for Nanoscience and Technology launch new journal, Nanoscale Advances
- 04 Jun 2018

Royal Society of Chemistry in partnership with nanoscience research centre the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) has launched a new journal Nanoscale Advances.

Nanoscale Advances will showcase interdisciplinary advances across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and offers a home for research from all over the world.

The new journal joins the nanoscale family, which also includes the high impact Nanoscale Horizons and community-spanning Nanoscale, and will be open access from launch. For the first two years, they are waiving all article processing charges, so until mid-2021 the journal will be completely free to publish in, as well as free to read.

Chunli Bai, the president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, will lead the new editorial board. A team of experienced associate editors will support him. They will be looking for good quality, reproducible new work that makes an important advance to the existing literature.

Nanoscale Advances will publish work in the form of communications, full papers and reviews. The first issue of the monthly journal will be published in January 2019, with advance articles appearing online later this year.

IOP Publishing launches new journal - Plasma Research Express
- 01 Jun 2018

IOP Publishing (IOP) has launched Plasma Research Express (PREX) to its plasma physics portfolio.

Led by Editor-in-Chief Professor Hae June Lee (Pusan National University, Republic of Korea), PREX is a broad, multidisciplinary journal publishing new experimental and theoretical research covering all areas of fundamental, engineering, and applied plasma science at low and high temperatures.

PREX aims to help researchers working in academia, government labs, and industry to reach the global plasmas community, and provide a journal dedicated to research extending across all aspects of this important multidisciplinary field.

The new journal is now open for submissions. In response to community demand, authors have the option of choosing between single or double-blind peer review when submitting to PREX.

HighWire, Hypothesis, and The American Diabetes Association launch branded annotation layer for key ADA publication
- 30 May 2018

The American Diabetes Association (ADA), HighWire Press, and Hypothesis have announced the launch of a branded annotation layer to communicate updates to ADA's Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes.

The ADA Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes (Standards of Care) is published annually as a supplement to the January issue of Diabetes Care. The Standards of Care provide comprehensive evidence-based recommendations for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetes. Physicians, diabetes educators, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals rely on the Standards of Care to keep up with the latest guidelines for treating children and adults living with or at risk for diabetes.

ADA staff will use Hypothesis to annotate the online version of the Standards of Care throughout the year. The annotations will anchor to specific selections of the online text, and will be used to communicate updates and new developments, clarifications, and additional information. The resulting annotations will be visible to any reader, and additions can only be made by ADA staff members. Annotations can include text, videos, and other rich media, as well as links to additional resources. They can be shared via email or social media, and persistent annotation links can be embedded anywhere on the web.

Publishers who are interested in adding publisher branded and moderated annotation groups for general discussion or for dedicated read-only layers should contact Heather Staines, Director of Partnerships for Hypothesis, or contact their HighWire account manager.
