The 2017 CWTS Leiden Ranking uses Web of Science data from Clarivate Analytics
- 22 May 2017

The CWTS Leiden Ranking 2017 has shared insights into the scientific performance of over 900 worldwide universities from 54 different countries. The ranking looks at all universities worldwide with more than 1,000 fractionally counted Web of Science indexed core publications between 2012 and 2015.

The ranking provides statistics on the scientific impact of universities and their involvement in scientific collaboration, and is based exclusively on bibliographic data from the Web of Science database of Clarivate Analytics, an independent company focused on enabling research excellence and driving real-world outcomes.

Many universities pay attention to these and other rankings as part of their decision-making processes. While they can be considered controversial, once rankings are published, many universities share their place in the list as a way to promote their institution.

The UK Medical Heritage Library now available online for free
- 10 May 2017

A £1m project to digitise more than 15 million pages of 19th century medical texts has been completed and the material is now available online for free. It has taken three years to convert these historic published works for use in the 21st century by learners, teachers and researchers.

Covering much more than just medical sciences, this enormous library of text and images encompasses consumer health, sport and fitness, diet and nutrition, along with some weird and wonderful historical medical practices such as phrenology and hydrotherapy.

The project was jointly funded by education technology solutions not-for-profit, Jisc, and Wellcome Library, which contributed its entire 19th century collection, along with content from nine partner institutions: Royal College of Physicians of London, Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, Royal College of Surgeons of England, University College London, University of Leeds, University of Glasgow, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, King's College London and the University of Bristol. As a collective, this will make a valuable resource for the exploration of medical humanities.

The aim has been to create a comprehensive online resource for the history of medicine and related sciences, which significantly increases the availability of digitised text for teaching, learning and research.

The collection, called the UK Medical Heritage Library, is completely open and can now be accessed for free via Jisc's Historical Texts resource or via the Wellcome Library's website.

CARL and OCUL in deal to enhance data management and digital preservation in Canada
- 05 May 2017

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) have signed an agreement to work together to identify and advance regional and national issues relating to the data discovery, management and digital preservation needs of the Canadian research community.

The agreement brings together research data management expertise from CARL's Portage Network and digital preservation expertise from OCUL's Scholars Portal to work together on identifying areas of integration and interoperability across systems supporting research data in Canada.

The agreement will enable OCUL member institutions to assemble effective workflows for access to and preservation of research data, while at the same time leveraging this community's expertise to advance Portage's goal of building nationwide communities of practice related to the long-term preservation of research data. Consequently, CARL and OCUL will work together to enhance communications and cooperation for effective OCUL-wide engagement with Portage, especially for OCUL members who are not currently CARL members. The agreement will also help to foster ongoing collaboration between Portage and OCUL's Scholars Portal service in important areas such as long-term preservation storage, data management and publishing services such as Dataverse, and data discovery.
