STM publisher Springer and Graz University Press (Grazer Universitätsverlag) have signed a new co-publishing agreement to publish co-branded books in English. Through this cooperation, the University of Graz Press will be able to provide its authors with international distribution via SpringerLink, where all content is made available electronically in a digital format. Springer will benefit from the addition of further influential titles to its comprehensive book programme.

The agreement encompasses research monographs, edited volumes, conference proceedings, briefs, handbooks, textbooks and encyclopaedias and other references – in all major disciplines covered by Springer Nature. The books will be co-branded with the Springer, Palgrave or Birkhäuser imprint (depending on the subject area of the publication) and Graz University Press.

Graz University Press (Grazer Universitätsverlag) publishes research findings of the university´s researchers as monographs and textbooks. It is part of the publication services of Graz University Library, and is the university's venue for print publications.

German Participants of the Frankfurt Fellowship Programme 2017 selected - 22 Sep 2017

The Frankfurter Buchmesse has announced the selection of the participants of the Frankfurt Fellowship Programme. In 2017, 97 candidates from 42 countries applied to participate in the Frankfurter Buchmesse international programme for young publishing professionals. Beginning October 1, 2017, 16 publishing professionals from 16 countries - including, for the first time, Iceland - will visit publishing companies and attend networking events in Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin. The highlight of the two-week programme is the Frankfurter Buchmesse (October 11-15,2017).

This year, for the first time, one participant will receive funding as the 'Fred Kobrak Frankfurt Fellow'. In memory of Fred Kobrak, a dedicated and long-serving player in the international publishing industry who passed away in December 2016 at the age of 88 years, his family will cover the travel and accommodation costs for one Frankfurt Fellow.

For the next ten years of the Frankfurt Fellowship Programme, each year one Frankfurt Fellow will receive funding. In 2017, Tynan Kogane from the USA has been chosen as the inaugural Fred Kobrak Frankfurt Fellow.

Since 1998, the Frankfurt Fellowship Programme has been bringing together international publishing professionals in the run-up to the Frankfurter Buchmesse. In the course of visits to publishing companies and bookstores, market presentations and matchmaking events, the Frankfurt Fellows gain a better understanding of the German book industry, and network and share information and experiences with each other. At the fair, the Frankfurt Fellows schedule their own appointments and meet again at evening events.

US SAGE announces expanded partnership with the Association for Psychological Science to launch innovative journal on research methods and practices - 22 Sep 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced an expanded partnership with the Association for Psychological Science to launch Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science (AMPPS) in early 2018.

AMPPS will publish new types of articles, tutorials, and empirical works that reflect various approaches to research across the field. Its Research Practices section will include statistics tutorials, articles on new research tools, commentaries, simulation studies for new techniques, and best practices articles and debates, among others. Its Empirical section will cover methodological articles, policy-oriented empirical studies, large-scale studies adopting new and innovative methodological approaches, registered reports of original research, and more.

SAGE has published pioneering textbooks and journals on research methods for more than four decades. Responding to the needs of today's researchers, as well as to advances in technology and big data, the company now offers datasets, case studies, educational videos on key techniques and the latest trends within research methods, and most recently, data science courses.

AMPPS will be the new home for the APS Registered Replication Reports (published through 2017 in Perspectives on Psychological Science).

US Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group selects PubFactory to host its journals - 22 Sep 2017

The Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group (JNSPG), the non-profit publication arm of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, has announced that beginning in Fall 2018, all JNSPG journals will launch on PubFactory with a refreshed design and increased platform controls, enabling JNSPG to continuously improve reader experience.

Since 1944, JNSPG's flagship journal, the Journal of Neurosurgery, has been recognised worldwide for its authoritative research articles and high-quality presentation of scientific and medical advances. In addition, it is among the top five most highly cited journals in the discipline, with a 2016 impact factor of 4.059.

In selecting PubFactory to host its journals, JNSPG will benefit from a Continuous Delivery approach to development that has allowed rapid enhancements to the platform over the last two years and increased flexibility to adapt as publishers' business needs change. PubFactory's customer support and full-service account management, coupled with continuous enhancements to an already dynamic platform, made them the logical choice for JNSPG.

The PubFactory team has been developing and delivering scholarly publishing technologies since 1999 and has been adopted by innovative publishers such as Oxford University Press, DeGruyter, Brill, and the International Monetary Fund. Today, the PubFactory platform is host to over 1,400 journals and more than 400,000 books along with reference works, databases, and other content types, making it the only truly content-agnostic platform and service provider in scholarly publishing.

US American Geophysical Union and Atypon announce joint initiative to develop Earth and Space Science Open Archive - 22 Sep 2017

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Atypon have announced a joint initiative to develop Earth and Space Science Open Archive (ESSOAr), a community server for the open dissemination of Earth and space science preprints and rich conference presentations. Development of the server, community engagement, and policies and practices will be a community effort guided by an international advisory board that will include representatives from societies across the Earth and space sciences. Its initial development will be supported by Wiley, AGU's publishing partner.

Preprint servers allow researchers to receive peer feedback that improves the final published output, and facilitates faster, open dissemination of research. Research outputs posted on preprint servers are also fully citable via digital object identifier (DOI) and freely accessible.

Atypon is building the new open access Earth and space science preprint server on top of its online publishing platform, Literatum, which will provide stability and regular feature enhancements, as well as content format interoperability.

ESSOAr will extend the traditional role of archiving manuscripts by also allowing researchers the option to preserve and to make citable presentations, posters, and related multimedia content from scientific conferences. More than 50,000 posters are presented across Earth and space science conferences, including about 17,000 at the AGU Fall Meeting. These are rich presentations of original research that can add to the understanding of the scientific process, but unless a follow-up article is published on the topic, that science is no longer discoverable. Their preservation will greatly increase scientific transparency.

An advisory board will help guide ESSOAr, and currently includes participation from the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, Earth Science Information Partners, European Geosciences Union, Geochemical Society, Geological Society of America (GSA), Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Participation on the board does not constitute endorsement by the societies, though it is anticipated that each organisation, through its own governance process, will endorse the effort. AGU hopes that other Earth and space science societies and scholarly publishers will join this effort.

ESSOAr will begin accepting content in 2018.
