NII and CERN sign MOU to develop next generation repository system
- 23 Oct 2018

The National Institute of Informatics (NII) and CERN have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in the development of research support tool and software. As for the first project, they will start the joint development of a next generation repository system, which has a strong impact on scholarly communication network. The new system encourages researchers to share their research output and consequently facilitate open science.

Open science aims to make research data, software, and other research components, in addition to the research paper, widely available via the Internet, and it is attracting attention as a new way of research approach. It has a strong advantage for improving the efficiency and productivity of research by reducing the duplication of experiments and by making research data available for other research groups. The repository itself plays an important role as a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for open science.

The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR) is an international association for the repository community to build capacity, align policies and practices, and act as a global voice for the community. In order to establish the repository more research-centric, open to and supportive of innovation, while also collectively managed by the scholarly community, COAR proposed principles and technical recommendation for next generation repository (NGR) system.

CERN claims to be one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 22 member states. The physicists and engineers at CERN are probing the fundamental structure of the universe and use the complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter - the fundamental particles. Thousands of physicists from more than a hundred of institutes and universities worldwide participate in the experiments hosted at CERN and create a massive research output. To preserve it for the future and facilitate results' sharing, since 2002, CERN has been developing the repository software named Invenio.

Since 2008, NII has developed the original repository software named WEKO. WEKO is now utilised by more than 500 Japanese institutions through a cloud service named JAIRO Cloud which is operated by NII. Because of Invenio's modular and flexible architecture, NII has decided to use Invenio for the new framework of the WEKO repository system. NII will develop several needed functionalities for WEKO3 and along the way will contribute to the development of the new Invenio 3 framework. This activity will generate many new Invenio modules that do not exist yet, and that are interesting for the world wide Invenio community. NII will contribute these modules back to the Invenio core framework, as much as possible. CERN will provide support and advice on how to achieve this goal and make those aforementioned modules reusable.

Due to the evolving nature of Invenio and the creation of WEKO3, many modules related to COAR NGR capabilities will be addressed during the upcoming years. Both NII and CERN will collaborate on developing a subset of the NGR features recommended by COAR NGR Working Group. The advantage of NII is to deploy these developments through JAIRO Cloud service and consequently Japanese institutions will be instantly ready to work with COAR NGR vision. CERN will also implement them into Zenodo data repository and related digital library services. Through these activities, both institutions strongly contribute to create a new scholarly communication network.

McGraw-Hill Education to embed new audio- and video-capture technology from GoReact into Digital Course Materials in 2019
- 19 Oct 2018

McGraw-Hill Education has announced that it will embed new audio- and video-capture capabilities from GoReact into several digital course material offerings starting next year. The integrations are part of the learning science company's focus on providing powerful assessments in its McGraw-Hill Connect digital course materials that evaluate and measure high-level thinking and performance skills. By joining with GoReact, McGraw-Hill is able to bring students and instructors a new industry-leading tool to enhance the learning experience.

McGraw-Hill Connect, which uses adaptive technology to personalise the learning experience for students and help instructors become even more effective, has been shown to help improve student grades and retention rates. It is used by millions of students, and gives educators the flexibility to teach their course their way, while providing students with affordable, engaging products designed to help them meet learning outcomes.

The GoReact communication tools embedded in Connect course materials will make it simple for students to record presentations, speeches and audio clips in courses that require those as part of their coursework, including Public Speaking, Communication, Business Communication and World Languages classes. The tools allow instructors to easily provide feedback, assign grades, and also share recordings with other students in cases where they evaluate their peers.

Among the many features that GoReact adds to Connect is synchronous video through which a student or instructor can communicate live to the class. This facilitates communication activities and assessments in online learning environments that were traditionally face-to-face, for example group projects with students in different locations. Students can also get real-time feedback from their peers and instructors.

The new software will be available beginning in spring 2019 for several McGraw-Hill titles.

Clarivate Analytics unveils Cortellis CMC Intelligence, expands drug availability in low and middle income countries
- 15 Oct 2018

Clarivate Analytics has announced the launch of Cortellis CMC Intelligence, a unique database developed to simplify the drug submission process and increase the chances of an approval, with a focus on the areas of greatest medical need in Low and Middle Income countries (LMICs). Cortellis CMC Intelligence was funded in part by a grant from the Bill&Melinda Gates Foundation.

In 2017 Clarivate Analytics acquired a product prototype from the Gates Foundation to provide its Product Development Partners (PDPs), who work to advance drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics focused on neglected diseases that disproportionately impact people in LMICs with reliable chemistry, manufacturing and control (CMC) regulatory information. Clarivate has since transformed this tool into a fully productised and scalable solution available to drug developers and manufacturers globally.

In an industry in which it can take up to ten years and $2.7 billion to progress a drug from discovery to market, it is imperative to mitigate risks that have the potential to increase development time and cost. According to the U.S. FDA, 50% of new drug applications filed between 2000 and 2012 were rejected, 11.3% of which were due to CMC issues. With as much as 15% of total R&D expenditures spent on CMC activities, these issues can have a significant negative financial impact - and in some instances, may result in incorrect termination of promising drug development programs.

With Cortellis CMC Intelligence, regulatory professionals will be able to understand the regulatory requirements for 73 LMICs, including the Caribbean, EMEA, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); compare requirements in new markets against those countries where a product is already approved to determine optimal expansion strategies and market entry sequence; and identify markets with similar or more stringent requirements to determine approval criteria that must be met to enable simultaneous application submission in multiple markets.

Clarivate Analytics plans to expand the Cortellis CMC Intelligence database beyond LMICs to include regulatory requirements for 140 countries across the globe by 2020.
