Portico and the National Library of the Netherlands partner to place archive replica at the National Library of the Netherlands
- 15 Aug 2018

Digital preservation service Portico and the National Library of the Netherlands (Koninklijke Bibliotheek or KB) have partnered to establish an online replica of the Portico archive that will be hosted by the KB.

Portico and the KB have a long history of collaboration; for more than a decade, they cooperated to form and implement their respective digital preservation principles and practices. They have worked together to research the handling of digital preservation formats and to develop automated preservation workflows. As part of this work, Portico has also provided copies of its archive, on disk, to the KB, which has maintained custody of this offline copy. Portico and the KB are now extending this partnership by establishing an online replica of the Portico archive at the KB.

The partnership with the KB also extends Portico's work with national libraries. Portico is increasingly called upon by national libraries to provide preservation expertise and infrastructure, including a longstanding partnership with the British Library to help meet UK legal deposit mandates.

Universities from the United States dominate ARWU 2018 Top 500 list
- 15 Aug 2018

The 2018 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) has been released by ShanghaiRanking Consultancy. Since 2003, every year ARWU has been presenting the world's Top 500 universities based on Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index data from Clarivate Analytics, as well as data from other third parties. ARWU is recognised as a leader of global university rankings.

ARWU adopts six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of Highly Cited Researchers representing some of the world's most influential minds as determined by a citation analysis of Web of Science data from Clarivate Analytics. Close to 1,500 universities are ranked by ARWU every year. This year the list of World Top 500 Candidates is extended to cover all universities ranked in the Top 1,000. Harvard University tops the ranking list for the 16th year running. Stanford University and the University of Cambridge remain at second and third respectively.

The United States and China are the two biggest hosts of Top 500 Candidates; the United States has 139 and China has 62 universities listed. The United States has eight universities among the Top 10, 46 among the Top 100 and 139 among the Top 500. There are three universities from China in the Top 100. The United Kingdom has 39 Top 500 universities, and eight of them are also listed in Top 100.

The complete list and detailed methodologies can be found at ShanghaiRanking's website http://www.ShanghaiRanking.com.

Portico explores digital preservation landscape in UKSG Insights
- 19 Jul 2018

There has been tremendous growth in the amount of digital content created by libraries, publishers, cultural institutions and the general public. While there are great benefits to having content available in digital form, digital objects can be extremely short-lived unless proper attention is paid to preservation.

The rise of interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to research - often integrating text, data, and audio-visual material - has enabled new forms of scholarly output. As scholarly communication becomes increasingly complex, how can we ensure that 'born-digital' artifacts are also 'born-preservable'?

Drawing on years of experience, senior leaders from Portico share their perspective on the digital preservation landscape in an article for UKSG Insights. The paper outlines emerging opportunities, including collaborating with national libraries; engaging new stakeholders such as business, financial, and governmental institutions; developing next generation technology infrastructures; and automating metadata extraction and enrichment through natural language processing and machine learning.
