US Voting Members of NISO approve new standardisation project, Criteria for Indexes - 17 Jun 2019

Voting Members of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) have approved a new standardisation project, Criteria for Indexes. This work, intended to become an ANSI standard to replace the Z39.4 standard that was withdrawn in 1997, will provide a modern approach to guidelines for the content, organisation, and presentation of indexes used for the retrieval of documents and parts of documents.

NISO published TR 02-1997, a technical report entitled Guidelines for Indexes and Related Information Retrieval Devices, in 1997 as a replacement for the Z39.4 standard, Basic Criteria for Indexes, when consensus could not be reached on the standard's publication. This technical report is now quite out of date and not suited for use in many electronic environments.

It is expected that the new working group's output will provide advice for creating indexes that better fits today's presentation and use cases. This working group will use the 1997 technical report as a starting point for its work, but it plans to create a new Z39.4 standard to include extensions and revisions to ensure it is current, including addressing indexing techniques, such as embedded indexing and indexes designed for electronic searching. A formal standard will also ensure better authority and wider industry recognition.

US The Bibsam Consortium in Sweden signs agreement to participate in AIP Publishing’s ‘Read and Publish’ pilot program - 17 Jun 2019

AIP Publishing, a not-for-profit scholarly publisher in the physical sciences, has announced that the Bibsam Consortium in Sweden has signed an agreement to participate in AIP Publishing’s ‘Read and Publish’ pilot program. Bibsam is the first research library consortium to join the pilot.

The pilot, which will run until the end of 2019, enables authors affiliated with the twelve participating universities to publish open access articles in AIP Publishing’s hybrid journals without paying any article processing fees.

As part of this pilot, AIP Publishing is partnering with a limited number of institutions around the world to test systems and processes.

France The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate’s new supplement ‘Agora’ to publish non-traditional scientific output in the field of space weather and space climate - 17 Jun 2019

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC), published by EDP Sciences, has announced the launch of a new supplement titled “Agora”. The Agora, a term which denoted in ancient Greek an assembly place for various aspects of public life including intellectual exchange and debate, will be the place for the space weather community to discuss, evaluate and distribute non-traditional scientific output in the field of space science and space climate, such as public outreach papers and historical accounts.

The first article published in the Agora section analyses magnetic storms recorded in 1848 and 1872 in the old Clementinum (Prague) and Greenwich (UK) observatories. These events were marked by spectacular auroras recorded by several authors.

In an Editorial published recently in JSWSC, the Editors explain the importance of publishing this type of scientific output, and the need to design a new way to evaluate it.

The creation of a supplement to the journal was discussed with the Associate Editors of JSWSC. These discussions resulted in the specification of the characteristics of the supplement which would accommodate publications fundamentally different from the journal’s regular research, technical, and review papers. Agora will publish papers on Education and public outreach, Historical space weather events and observations, Commentaries, Meeting reports and Project reports.

The articles for the Agora supplement will be internally reviewed by at least four editors, among them the Editors in Chief and the Editorial Advisor. In order to meet the needs of potential contributors, the new articles in the supplement will be indexed similarly to regular JSWSC papers, will receive a DOI and will be citable. However, the supplement will clearly be marked as evaluated by members of the editorial board as opposed to external peer reviewers.

As with all other articles published in the gold open access Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate, Agora articles are published as soon as possible after acceptance, in the current volume. They are also collated in a special Agora collection accessible at: https://www.swsc-journal.org/agora. All articles published in JSWSC are freely accessible to all and distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY 4.0).

US Cooper Medical School of Rowan University launches new open-access scholarly journal - 17 Jun 2019

The Cooper Rowan Medical Journal (CRMJ), a new open-access, peer-reviewed biomedical science journal from Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU), has published its first manuscripts. The announcement was made by Annette C. Reboli, dean and professor of medicine at CMSRU.

The new scholarly journal is student-driven, partially student-run and faculty-supervised. Its peer-reviewed articles include up-to-date research first-authored by current medical students, allied healthcare students, and medical residents and fellows.

CMSRU is committed to educating students who understand the importance of evidence-based medicine, scholarly research and lifelong learning, explains Reboli.

The journal is one of only a handful of peer-reviewed student medical journals nationwide. It was initiated last year by clinical faculty and medical students – led by fourth-year student Kristopher Hendershot - who sought to create a legitimate, peer-reviewed journal that could publish student research from around the globe. CMSRU medical librarian Benjamin Saracco serves as the journal’s managing editor. He along with Dr. R. Philip Dellinger, professor of medicine at CMSRU and one of the school’s most widely-published researchers, provided guidance and leadership to make the project a reality.

Mirroring the mission and vision of CMSRU and its focus on serving the community, CRMJ prioritises publishing research that addresses medical conditions and healthcare access issues that impact medically underserved patients and communities. To date, CRMJ has received 20 submissions from more than 10 medical schools across the country and has accepted 10 percent of them. CRMJ is indexed in Google Scholar and the journal team has the goal of eventually being indexed in PubMed Central.

According to Saracco, the CRMJ Editorial Board includes defined student and faculty roles for strategic, educational reasons.
