ACS and RSC Sign ORCID Integration Letter

By becoming signatories to the ORCID Open Letter, these two major chemical society publishers announce their intent to collect ORCID iDs for all submitting authors through use of the ORCID API, and to display such identifiers in the articles published in their respective journals. The integration of such activities within the publishers' workflows means authors will benefit from automated linkages between their ORCID record and unique identifiers embedded within their published research articles, ensuring their contributions are appropriately recognized and credited.

Research Sharing Requirements Tool

Researchers can use this integrated policy resource from SPARC to explore and compare agency requirements for sharing articles and data. The new article-sharing analysis provides a tool for tracking practical information that can be used by active or prospective grant awardees to understand when, how, and where they need to make their manuscripts accessible, including links to each agency's submission portal. As with the data-sharing resource, it will be updated as additional federal agency plans are released and analyzed and as current plans are revised. [11/1/16]

New Reaxys Interface

Elsevier has given Reaxys a total facelift and redesigned the search interface. There's also enhanced literature and patent coverage. It's a work in progress. Try it out via the "New Reaxys" button when you connect. The old interface will be retired in May 2017. [10/17/16]

When is Piracy Ethical?

Over 200,000 articles are downloaded every day from Sci-Hub, a "flamboyantly illegal" site in Russia that has amassed over 47 million journal articles and 1.5 million books by "borrowing" credentials from people at thousands of subscribing institutions - including UT Austin. This essay in the Chronicle of Higher Education wonders how ethical this approach is given the almost complete dysfunction of the modern scholarly publishing system and the glaring inequities it has spawned in one's access to needed information. (Ironically yet predictably, the article is behind a paywall, and restricted to UT readers.) [9/10/16]

ACS to Launch Preprint Server - ChemRxiv

"ChemRxiv is expected to follow the established models of arXiv in physics and bioRxiv in the life sciences by enabling researchers working across diverse areas of inquiry to share early results and data with their scientist-colleagues ahead of formal peer review and publication. Preprints are fully citable and are freely accessible preliminary communications, aimed to advance the pace of scientific discovery and information dissemination." (from Press Release) [8/10/16]
