BMJ launches new open access journal - BMJ Neurology Open
- 17 Jul 2019

Healthcare knowledge provider BMJ has added a new title - BMJ Neurology Open - to its expanding portfolio of more than 70 specialist journals.

BMJ Neurology Open is an online, peer-reviewed, open access journal, dedicated to publishing medical research in all areas of clinical neurology and neuroscience. It will have a particular focus on addressing common neurological diseases and their treatment and implementation studies which look at how neurological advances can be brought to the patients who need them.

BMJ Neurology Open is co-owned by BMJ and the Australia and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN). The title is a sister journal to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry. The journal will maintain a rigorous and transparent peer review process and will adhere to the highest ethical standards for research as part of BMJ's vision for a healthier world.

In common with BMJ's other titles, BMJ Neurology Open will operate a fast submission and review process with continuous publication online, to ensure that the most up-to-date research is available worldwide.

The new title is edited by Professor Richard Gerraty, a stroke neurologist based in Australia. He was the founding director of the Acute Stroke Unit at St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, and has also had appointments in clinical stroke and stroke research at the Royal Melbourne and the Alfred hospital.

MIT Press and the Harvard Data Science Initiative launch new open access journal - Harvard Data Science Review
- 17 Jul 2019

The MIT Press and the Harvard Data Science Initiative (HDSI) have announced the launch of the Harvard Data Science Review (HDSR). The open-access journal, published by MIT Press and hosted online via the multimedia platform PubPub, an initiative of the MIT Knowledge Futures group, will feature leading global thinkers in the burgeoning field of data science, making research, educational resources, and commentary accessible to academics, professionals, and the interested public. With demand for data scientists booming, HDSR will provide a centralised, authoritative, and peer-reviewed publishing community to service the growing profession.

The first issue features articles on topics ranging from authorship attribution of John Lennon-Paul McCartney songs to machine learning models for predicting drug approvals to artificial intelligence (AI). Future content will have a similar range of general interest, academic, and professional content intended to foster dialogue among researchers, educators, and practitioners about data science research, practice, literacy, and workforce development. HDSR will prioritise quality over quantity, with a primary emphasis on substance and readability, attracting readers via inspiring, informative, and intriguing papers, essays, stories, interviews, debates, guest columns, and data science news. By doing so, HDSR intends to help define and shape the profession as a scientifically rigorous and globally impactful multidisciplinary field.

Combining features of a premier research journal, a leading educational publication, and a popular magazine, HDSR will leverage digital technologies and advances to facilitate author-reader interactions globally and learning across various media.

The Harvard Data Science Review will serve as a hub for high-quality work in the growing field of data science. It will feature articles that provide expert overviews of complex ideas and topics from leading thinkers with direct applications for teaching, research, business, government, and more. It will highlight content in the form of commentaries, overviews, and debates intended for a wide readership; fundamental philosophical, theoretical, and methodological research; innovations and advances in learning, teaching, and communicating data science; and short communications and letters to the editor.

The digital edition is freely available on the PubPub platform to readers around the globe.

The inaugural issue of HDSR will publish contributions from internationally renowned scholars and educators, as well as leading researchers in industry and government, such as Christine Borgman (University of California at Los Angeles), Rodney Brooks (MIT), Emmanuel Candes (Stanford University), David Donoho (Stanford University), Luciano Floridi (Oxford/The Alan Turing Institute), Alan M. Garber (Harvard), Barbara J. Grosz (Harvard), Alfred Hero (University of Michigan), Sabina Leonelli (University of Exeter), Michael I. Jordan (University of California at Berkeley), Andrew Lo (MIT), Maja Matarić (University of Southern California), Brendan McCord (U.S. Department of Defense), Nathan Sanders (WarnerMedia), Rebecca Willett (University of Chicago), and Jeannette Wing (Columbia University).

Cambridge University Press' new journal to explore the impact of data science on engineering
- 16 Jul 2019

Cambridge University Press has announced a new open access journal that will explore the transformative effect of data science on engineering.

Launched this week with support from global charity Lloyd's Register Foundation, Data-Centric Engineering will look at how the revolution in sensing, measurement, and data capture is driving the discovery of new materials, and new methods of manufacture, operation, control and construction.

It will be the first cross-disciplinary journal to focus on research at the intersection of data sciences such as applied maths, statistical and computing science, with all areas of engineering. Alongside cutting-edge research, position papers will also be published exploring related ethical, legal, security and policy issues.

Mark Girolami from the University of Cambridge's Department of Engineering will serve as the Editor-in Chief of Data-Centric Engineering. The journal was officially launched at the International Congress for Industry and Applied Maths (ICIAM) in Valencia, with the first issue due for publication in 2020. It will be free to read on Cambridge Core, the online repository of books and journals published by the Press.

Global charity, the Lloyd's Register Foundation, has pledged support for the new journal, providing funding that will enable unfunded researchers to publish their research on an open access basis.

The Foundation has been at the forefront of advocating and funding the use of data-intensive technology in engineering, as part of its mission to secure high technical standards of design that enhance the safety of life and property.

Frontiers and the University of Salford form open access publishing agreement
- 09 Jul 2019

Frontiers and the University of Salford have established an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing. Under the terms of this agreement, eligible authors from the University of Salford may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process.

Eligible authors will benefit from a streamlined invoicing process, managed directly between Frontiers and the Open Access team at the Library of the University of Salford, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, the University of Salford and its Library will benefit from a discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.

This agreement will further encourage University of Salford authors to publish open access, increasing uptake of open access to the results of mostly publicly funded research, to the benefit of the scholarly community and the public at large, while reducing costs.

Authors can submit their article under this institutional agreement, by selecting 'University of Salford' as institutional payer in the invoice section when submitting their article. Frontiers will then verify eligibility with the University of Salford Library, who will then contact the authors to discuss how to apply to their open access fund.
