Springer Nature collaborates with tech industry to find innovative solutions for researchers   - 25 May 2018

Springer Nature has partnered with leading global technology forum The Next Web (TNW) Conference to explore how technology can help improve the sharing, discoverability and use of research data.

With more than half the world's research data still not openly available, and open data and good data management important to making research more productive, this is a pressing issue the academic community needs resolving.

Springer Nature's latest Launchpad Meetup, held at TNW in Amsterdam, saw tech talent from across Europe present ideas on how researchers can be helped to extract more value from their experimental research data, through faster, easier routes of discovery and visualisation, organisation or sharing of data. Hearing these pitches were senior company executives, including Springer Nature CEO Daniel Ropers.

Startups whose pitches are successful at the event will have the opportunity to collaborate with Springer Nature on pilot projects and the co-creation of new products. Springer Nature is currently working on pilots with startups that took part in the 2017 Launchpad Meetups.

Springer Nature has a track record of working with the tech sector to find solutions to problems facing the research community. Activity includes two previous Launchpad Meetups - in May 2017 focused on improving matchmaking between Springer Nature content and researchers, students and professionals, and in September 2017 on creating better tools and innovations to assist authors and editors throughout the publishing process; the Springer Nature Hack Day Series, which facilitates collaboration between developers and researchers to build new tools and services that can advance the discovery of research data. Hack Days have taken place in June 2017, November 2017 and April 2018; Springer Nature SciGraph, the Linked Open Data platform which aggregates data sources from Springer Nature and key partners from across the research landscape, including from funders, research projects, conferences, affiliations and publications; a one-year pilot with PaperHive which offers students collaborative reading using in-document discussions and rich-media annotations on selected books and textbooks; and a standardised set of research data policies that can be easily adopted by journals and books.

Questioning the drug firms-scientists nexus

The US Center for Science in the Public Interest has questioned medical journals for not revealing the financial relationship the authors hold with drug companies for the studies that may potentially benefit the companies. . Scientists whose researches are funded by drug companies often publish their reports in prestigious scientific journals. Drug companies who fund the reports claim the results of the study while marketing the product. Publishers of the journals are left clueless about the funding agreement.   Click Here


Study analyses pricing trends of scientific journals

Allen Press had conducted an annual study to identify the pricing patterns of scientific and medical journals. The research covers the 2004 pricing of US journals and gives recommendations on the pricing structure for 2005. It carries comparisons between the pricing structures of non-profit society journals and discusses general pricing trends in the US. The author also ranks the journals based on the subscription charges and science categories with higher prices. The paper also forecasts the pricing strategy of science journals in 2005.   Click Here


Publishers opening up to Open Access archiving

Researchers have voiced their support to Open Access (OA) that makes their works available to anyone free of cost. While commercial publishers have given a subdued response to OA, scientists welcome OA archiving, wherein institutions or academics maintain an electronic format of the studies submitted by the scientists. Amidst disapproval from publishers and scientific groups, OA archiving is gaining acceptance from developed nations. Economic factors, existing subsidised but limited free content supported by publishers and an inclination to traditional publishing are a few reasons that impede support for OA archiving from developing countries.   Click Here


Open access movement gaining ground in STM publishing

The “open access movement”, which is rapidly gaining ground in the area of STM publishing, stresses the free use of online medical research. As commercial publishers set high prices for medical periodicals and libraries struggle to sustain amidst shrinking budgets, a debate has flared up on the need for open access. Clinical and basic researchers point out that as these studies are funded by the government, the publishers must make them available for free. The increasing use of electronic format of journals has induced independent publishers, such as ASCO and JCO, to host e-journals as an extension of their respective membership programmes and educational missions.    Click Here


Do science publishers still have a role?

The open access movement is gaining momentum. Critics have voiced their strong protests against the pricing of STM journals. The spiralling prices were, in fact, the major reason for the launch and rapid spreading of the open access movement. Does this mean the end of SRM publishers? No, says Bill Town in his article in Computing.   Click Here
