CLOCKSS announces preservation of Crossref metadata
- 13 Jun 2018

The CLOCKSS Archive, the long-term preservation service for scholarly content, has announced that the CLOCKSS system will preserve all Crossref metadata.

The Crossref system contains bibliographic information for 97 million scholarly articles and book content, and growing by approximately 2 million each year. Crossref is the underlying infrastructure for several crucial features of scholarly publishing, such as reference linking, plagiarism checking, and provenance and license information.

According to Craig Van Dyck, CLOCKSS Executive Director, the Crossref metadata services deliver enormous value to scholarly communications. CLOCKSS will be an important component of protecting this value. For CLOCKSS, this signals that they will preserve not only journals and books, but also underlying metadata that users and services rely upon, as well as ancillary content such as supplementary material and other emerging forms of scholarly content.

ScienceOpen indexes articles from two ARPHA-hosted journals
- 30 May 2018

Two scholarly journals published on ARPHA - Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO Journal) and Check List - now have their articles freely available via the community-focused search and discovery platform ScienceOpen.

The new trial between the two high-tech innovators and Open Science proponents presents an important step forward to making research publications not only easier to find and access, but also more inviting to fellow scientists seeking new collaborations and platforms for voicing their ideas and expertise.

At present, there are 168 and 948 article records fed to ScienceOpen straight from RIO and Check List respectively.

While the articles' underlying data, such as author names, citations, keywords, journals and more, are automatically harvested and analysed by ScienceOpen, so that research items can be easily interlinked, readers are encouraged to further provide context to the research items. The user-friendly intuitive interface invites them to add their comments, recommendations or open post-publication peer reviews, and even create their own topical collections regardless of affiliations and journals.

To make sure users land on the most relevant articles, ScienceOpen also accommodates an advanced multi-layer search engine relying on a total of 20 smart filters and six sorting parameters.

Call to publishers: Jisc digital archival collections group purchasing scheme PIN notice
- 11 May 2018

Jisc is working in collaboration with publishers to make digital archival collections of primary source materials more affordable so researchers, teachers and learners can have access to a wider range of resources and libraries can achieve further efficiencies. They are currently running phase two of the Digital Archival collections group purchasing pilot from November 2017 to July 2018 with 4 publishers, to be followed by a framework agreement that will open up the buying model to a wider selection of publishers.

The group purchasing model operates on two principles: the more products collectively purchased from a publisher, the more institutions equally benefit from discounts off list prices no matter what Jisc band they belong to (for example, if a band 1 and band 7 institutions made a purchase, they would receive the same percent discount off the list price); and the purchasing model runs on a yearly basis, allowing institutions to benefit from the maximum discount reached by the end of each academic year.

Jisc will launch four digital archival collections within the next few weeks. Interested publishers can register through the recently launched PIN notice available on TED (tenders electronic daily), by the end of May 2018.

The University of Cincinnati Libraries joins HathiTrust
- 10 May 2018

The University of Cincinnati Libraries have joined HathiTrust, a partnership of major research institutions and libraries working to ensure that the cultural record is preserved and accessible long into the future by collaboratively collecting, organising, preserving, communicating and sharing the record of human knowledge. UC Libraries joins more than 130 international research libraries in HathiTrust, and is the third Ohio library to join along with The Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve University.

HathiTrust began in 2008 as a collaboration of the universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (now the Big Ten Academic Alliance) and the University of California system to establish a repository to archive and share their digitised collections. At present, the HathiTrust's Digital Library catalogue equals 16 million volumes digitised and deposited by member libraries.

As members of HathiTrust, the University of Cincinnati community will have full access to digital materials inputted by UC Libraries, as well as those items in the public domain and those for which there is permission. In addition, benefits of HathiTrust membership include digital content storage, cost-effective long-term preservation and access services for UC Libraries' digitised content.

The initial focus of the HathiTrust collaboration has been on preserving and providing access to digitised book and journal content from the partner library collections. This includes both in copyright and public domain materials digitised by Google, the Internet Archive and Microsoft, as well as through in-house initiatives. The members aim to build a comprehensive archive of published literature from around the world and to develop shared strategies for managing and developing their digital and print holdings in a collaborative way. HathiTrust members ensure the reliability and efficiency of the digital library by relying on community standards and best practices, developing policies and procedures to manage content and services at scale and by maintaining a modular, open infrastructure.
