NIMAS: An Opportunity for Educational Publishers

This white paper from Integration New Media, Inc. and Really Strategies Inc. provides educational publishers with an overview of the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS), an explanation of how NIMAS applies to them, and a summary of the new opportunities it creates. It presents a 101 level overview of NIMAS and its importance to publishers. Also, it looks at how XML and content management solutions can help publishers streamline their workflow to meet the requirements of NIMAS and to create new business opportunities for the reuse, repurposing, and repackaging of content.

Promoting Integrity in Scientific Journal Publications

This white paper examines the various models of authorship and contributorship and analyses how editors can ensure that they have a workable conflict of interest policy. While the first half of the paper covers the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved in publishing, the second half covers research misconduct - its definition and identification as well as international models to tackle it. The paper also examines the difference between a retraction and a published expression of concern, and addresses the question of how best to correct the literature.

Publishing paradigms for the 'new sciences' will demand increased sophistication of customer service and search and analysis tools. Publishing will undergo a metamorphosis influenced both by changing user demands and changes in 'the Web' itself. Marlow summarises his findings by reasserting the importance of the five M model: information needs to be 'malleable, multiple-platformed, manageable, mixable, and massive'.
