Google Scholar and ProQuest expand collaboration to improve research outcomes
- 03 Oct 2017

ProQuest and Google are expanding their collaboration by indexing almost half a million full text dissertations from the ProQuest Dissertations&Theses Global database (PQDT) following the indexing of millions of scholarly articles in Google Scholar in 2015.

Google Scholar users can now seamlessly discover and access this set of full text dissertations in their libraries' subscription collections. The user experience is improved and libraries benefit from increased usage for their content investment.

Linking and access to the dissertations from Google Scholar is automatic and requires no intervention by the library. An authenticated ProQuest® dissertations user searching Google Scholar will be recognised by the ProQuest platform and connect to the full text in their library's collection. Users who are not recognised are sent to a landing page where they can purchase the dissertation or access the first 24 pages at no charge. Dissertations that have been published using the ProQuest Open Access publishing model are available to all users for free.

Excellent sources of original research on specific topics, dissertations are a crucial form of scholarly communication. They are vehicles for testing and presenting new ideas and trends and often contain data and results of lab experiments, fieldwork, surveys, and statistics that journal articles don't include. Dissertations also provide valuable context for learning about faculty, institutions, and fellow scholars. For the researcher, the deep coverage and extensive bibliographies included in dissertations uncover sources and ideas that might otherwise be missed. On the ProQuest platform, PQDT provides fast and seamless access to 2 million full-text works and 4.5 million abstracts - all cross-referenced to scholarly content across the library's online content environment.

Ingenta and British Library collaborate to digitise and distribute archival content
- 25 Sep 2017

The British Library and Ingenta, a software provider to the publishing industry, have announced the signature of an agreement to collaborate on the digitisation and distribution of archival content for academic institutions.

Every institutional library has its own archive of rare documents and publications which, in print format, remains accessible to very few researchers. Though many institutions have the technical resources to create digital copies, none are as advanced as the British Library's own facilities at Boston Spa in West Yorkshire and St Pancras in London, or have a dedicated team of staff, including preservation experts and conservators. Ingenta Connect was established nearly two decades ago, and now reaches almost every academic library in the world; content digitised by the British Library's professional team can now be disseminated through Ingenta Connect and its sister site Ingenta Open, potentially making rare content available to hundreds of thousands of researchers and academic institutions worldwide.

American Geophysical Union and Atypon announce joint initiative to develop Earth and Space Science Open Archive
- 22 Sep 2017

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Atypon have announced a joint initiative to develop Earth and Space Science Open Archive (ESSOAr), a community server for the open dissemination of Earth and space science preprints and rich conference presentations. Development of the server, community engagement, and policies and practices will be a community effort guided by an international advisory board that will include representatives from societies across the Earth and space sciences. Its initial development will be supported by Wiley, AGU's publishing partner.

Preprint servers allow researchers to receive peer feedback that improves the final published output, and facilitates faster, open dissemination of research. Research outputs posted on preprint servers are also fully citable via digital object identifier (DOI) and freely accessible.

Atypon is building the new open access Earth and space science preprint server on top of its online publishing platform, Literatum, which will provide stability and regular feature enhancements, as well as content format interoperability.

ESSOAr will extend the traditional role of archiving manuscripts by also allowing researchers the option to preserve and to make citable presentations, posters, and related multimedia content from scientific conferences. More than 50,000 posters are presented across Earth and space science conferences, including about 17,000 at the AGU Fall Meeting. These are rich presentations of original research that can add to the understanding of the scientific process, but unless a follow-up article is published on the topic, that science is no longer discoverable. Their preservation will greatly increase scientific transparency.

An advisory board will help guide ESSOAr, and currently includes participation from the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, Earth Science Information Partners, European Geosciences Union, Geochemical Society, Geological Society of America (GSA), Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Participation on the board does not constitute endorsement by the societies, though it is anticipated that each organisation, through its own governance process, will endorse the effort. AGU hopes that other Earth and space science societies and scholarly publishers will join this effort.

ESSOAr will begin accepting content in 2018.

CAS to preserve ChemZent product with Portico
- 11 Sep 2017

The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) will preserve its ChemZentTM solution through Portico's d-collection service, ensuring that it will be secure and available to ChemZent customers in the future.

ChemZent provides academic, commercial and government organisations with access to the first and only English-searchable version of Chemisches Zentralblatt, the oldest journal of chemistry abstracts, covering the literature from 1830-1969.

CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, is dedicated to the ACS vision of improving people's lives through the transforming power of chemistry. The CAS team of highly trained scientists identifies, aggregates, and organises all publicly disclosed chemistry information, creating the world's most valuable collection of content that is vital to innovation worldwide.

Karger Publishers increases quality and range of eJournal Archive Collection
- 07 Sep 2017

The Karger eJournal Archive Collection has been revised and expanded to include improved functionality and quality as well as 12 additional journals.

The entire Karger eJournal Archive Collection has recently been re-digitised using semantic technology to provide the best possible user experience. The improved quality and functionality allow for efficient searching on both the Karger website and Google Scholar.

The Collection now also includes 12 journals that have ceased publication or were merged into other titles before 1998. These prestigious Karger journals cover scientific ground still relevant today, making it possible to link significant discoveries from the past to today's research.

The eJournal Archive Collection comprises all digitised Karger journal issues from 1997 back to each title's first year of publication, i.e. 76 titles with a total of more than 200,000 articles and 2,432 publication years. First published in 1893, Dermatology was Karger's first journal and is still active today.
