SAGE, an independent academic publisher, is known for its commitment to quality and innovation, and has helped to inform and educate a global community of scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students across a broad range of subject areas.

CLOCKSS, the decentralised preservation archive that ensures that the digital assets of the community will survive intact, simultaneously announced the support of five additional participating publishers for future generations of researchers. New Publishers include: Annals of Family Medicine; European Journal of Business Science and Technology; Mersenne Center for Open Scientific Publishing; Parenteral Drug Association, Inc.; and Verduci Editore (European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences).

Wiley Digital Archives partners with Royal College of Physicians to provide access to 500 years of medical history
- 12 Jan 2018

Publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc. has announced that the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is the latest Wiley Digital Archives partner. The relationship with RCP is the first venture between Wiley and this society which is the oldest medical college in England. The digital resource will contain approximately 5 million images, selected from both the archives of the College and from the Dorchester library, and will span over 500 years of history, with some material pre-dating the founding of the Royal College of Physicians by charter of King Henry VIII in 1518.

The RCP digital archive will reflect interdisciplinary interests in a broad range of subject areas, the content will be selected in coordination with the Royal College of Physicians and with an Advisory Board of experts, led by Dr. Elizabeth (Tilli) M. Tansey, medical historian and neurochemist at the University of London, and Dr. Jacob Steere-Williams, professor of History at Charleston College.

Dr. Elizabeth is a professor of the History of Modern Medical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London. Dr. Tansey is an honorary member of the Physiological Society and in 2017 was appointed as an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. She is also the honorary archivist of the Physiological Society. Dr. Jacob Steere- Williams is currently a professor of History at Charleston College. He specializes in the history of science, medicine, disease and his teachings are in the history of nineteenth century Britain and the British Empire.

In partnership with the Royal College of Physicians, work is underway to conserve, digitise, and create metadata that will greatly enhance access and discoverability to over 5 million page-images of historical content - Wiley's largest digital archive to -date.

AACR Publications partners with ReadCube to enhance discoverability of its collection
- 09 Jan 2018

The American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Publications has announced a partnership with ReadCube's Discover program. The eight, highly ranked journals of the AACR cover the entire spectrum of cancer research and will now be fully indexed and discoverable through ReadCube's web, desktop and mobile platforms. The entire collection will also be included in ReadCube's search engines, related article feeds and popular personalised recommendation engine.

In addition to deep-indexing, when read within any of ReadCube's apps, over 40k articles will be available with ReadCube's popular Enhanced PDF features. These include hyperlinked in-line citations, annotations, clickable author names, instant access to supplemental content and figures, social sharing, and Altmetrics.

Founded in 1907, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) claims to be the world's first and largest professional organisation dedicated to advancing cancer research and its mission to prevent and cure cancer. AACR membership includes 40,000 laboratory, translational, and clinical researchers; population scientists; other health care professionals; and patient advocates residing in 120 countries. The AACR marshals the full spectrum of expertise of the cancer community to accelerate progress in the prevention, biology, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer by annually convening more than 30 conferences and educational workshops, the largest of which is the AACR Annual Meeting with more than 21,900 attendees.

CLOCKSS and Code Ocean announce preservation deal
- 14 Dec 2017

Code Ocean and CLOCKSS have announced that Code Ocean will preserve its compute capsules in the CLOCKSS Archive to ensure the long-term accessibility of code associated with research articles. Code Ocean is a computational reproducibility platform enabling researchers to run, share, discover code in an executable, cloud-based environment. Researchers, engineers, developers, and scientists can link executable code and data to articles published in academic journals and conference proceedings while retaining copyright.

Code and software are increasingly crucial to the conduct of research and to the production of scholarly articles. Code Ocean's robust system allows authors to deposit their code, to make it available for others to reuse, and to reproduce published results. CLOCKSS will provide Code Ocean with a layer of preservation in the unlikely event that Code Ocean can no longer function.

CLOCKSS, a sustainable and globally distributed archive, will preserve all elements of Code Ocean's compute capsules, including the code, data, results, metadata and the Dockerfile associated with published research from participating publishers.

Code Ocean joins over 200 publishers and over 300 libraries participating with CLOCKSS.

UK's scientific legacy in the Royal Society's new digital archive
- 12 Dec 2017

The Royal Society, the UK's national academy of sciences, is making over 330 years' worth of high-quality, full colour images from its journals available online. The content, which includes annotations, illustrations, and additional material between 1665 and 1996, has so far only been available to people visiting the library. Up until January 24, 2018, the archive will be free to access.

Improved metadata means the collection is now easier to search, helping to navigate through over 350 years of science in the making. Each article has been tagged individually by experienced indexers, capturing a wealth of information that was not previously searchable.

The Royal Society captured every single one of the 740,000 pages of the 1665-1996 physical journal collections held at Carlton Terrace House. The images have been processed to achieve a high level of consistency but retained the original page colour and general appearance, including notes in the margin, has been retained to give the reader the experience of browsing the archive itself.

Users can now digitally access some of the most important scientific texts in history, including Newton's theory of light and colour, Franklin's electrical experiments, Lonsdale's crystallography, Turing's paper on morphogenesis and many more. Some influential papers published in Philosophical Transactions are included in the archive.

An extended version of the archive is also available to purchase, which would give institutions perpetual access to content from 1665-1996 and its own copy to include in its repository, perfect for data mining, complete with An indexing database allowing for improved search; Extended metadata and math ml; no annual maintenance fee; and higher resolution images.
