TIB Open Publishing

TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology’s open-access publishing platform – is a new service. Nevertheless, the first two published conference volumes have been able to benefit from various features of our service: All contributions have been released under CC BY 4.0 and the copyright remains with the authors. The published contributions are archived via the TIB’s long-term archiving system. For this purpose, we have developed a plugin that transfers metadata and files from OJS to Rosetta. We deliver the publications to the German National Library and they are referenced in the Verbundkatalog K10plus and can thus be found in the TIB Portal. We are fond of persistent identifiers and use ISSNs (online), Crossref DOIs, ORCIDs, and RORs for the publications. To enable the latter we developed a ROR Plugin for OJS. For some of the contributions, we are already able to provide full-text XML. In doing so, we converted template-compliant Word submissions to JATS XML within OJS. We then post-processed this JATS XML using the Texture Editor in OJS. Online representation of the XML is created using the LensGalleyBits plugin, which generates a dynamic HTML view. The protection of personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we have modified our OJS so that editors from one publication cannot search user data from another publication, even though both publications run on the same OJS instance. In the future we would like to be able to offer full-text XML also for LaTeX submissions and we would like to generate HTML and PDF directly from the XML files. Besides simplifying the workflow we also want to improve the layout of the output formats. Furthermore, we are aiming to improve the presentation and handling of conference publications with OJS and are in an exchange with PKP on this.

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a publicly available portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.). These indicators can be used to assess and analyze scientific domains. Journals can be compared or analysed separately. Country rankings may also be compared or analysed separately. Journals can be grouped by subject area (27 major thematic areas), subject category (313 specific subject categories) or by country. Citation data is drawn from over 34,100 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers and country performance metrics from 239 countries worldwide. The SJCR allows you also to embed significative journal metrics into your web as a clickable image widget

This platform takes its name from the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator (PDF), developed by SCImago from the widely known algorithm Google PageRank™. This indicator shows the visibility of the journals contained in the Scopus® database from 1996.

SCImago is a research group from the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), University of Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid) and Alcalá de Henares, dedicated to information analysis, representation and retrieval by means of visualisation techniques.

As well as the SJR Portal, SCImago has developed The Shape of Science, the SIR (SCImago Institution Rankings) and the Atlas of Science. The Shape of Science is an information visualization project whose aim is to reveal the structure of science. Its interface has been designed to access the bibliometric indicators database of the SCImago Journal & Country Rank portal.The SIR is a classification of academic and research-related institutions ranked by a composite indicator that combines three different sets of indicators based on research performance, innovation outputs and societal impact measured by their web visibility. The Atlas of Science project proposes the creation of an information system whose major aim is to achieve a graphic representation of IberoAmerican Science Research. Such representation is conceived as a collection of interactive maps, allowing navigation functions throughout the semantic spaces formed by the maps.

Direct to Open (D2O)

A first-of-its-kind sustainable framework for open access monographs, D2O moves professional and scholarly books from a solely market-based, purchase model where individuals and libraries buy single eBooks, to a collaborative, library-supported open access model. 

D2O gives institutions the opportunity to harness collective action to support access to knowledge. Beginning in 2022, all new MIT Press scholarly monographs and edited collections will be openly available on the MIT Press Direct eBook platform. Instead of purchasing a title once for a single collection, libraries now have the opportunity to fund them one time for the world through participant fees.

CIÊNCIAVITAE

CIÊNCIAVITAE is the national scientific curriculum management system, presenting itself as a central element in the ecosystem of information management on scientific and technological activity as well as a tool to support the modernisation of the administrative processes supported by a CV.

Part of the concept of scientific citizenship (Ciência ID), CIÊNCIAVITAE appears as a privileged space of relationship between the citizen and science, reflected in the format of an integrated and personalised repository of the scientific path.

The CIÊNCIAVITAE will aggregate in a single site the information currently dispersed in multiple platforms, in a simple, harmonised and structured way, respecting the specificities of the scientific areas and enshrining the principles of freedom and responsibility in the management and presentation of the curriculum

The platform uses import mechanisms and automatic completion of curricular data, ensuring the principle of re-use of information (introduce once, reuse multiple), in direct articulation with Ciência ID. The development of the platform respects international best practices and regulations and is interoperable with several national and international systems and identifiers.​

CIÊNCIAVITAE is developed and managed by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). This platform will replace DeGóis curriculum management system launched in 2008 by FCT in partnership with the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology, the Gávea laboratory of the Department of Information Systems of the University of Minho and the Stela group of the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil.

Project Euclid

Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library, with start-up funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is now jointly managed by the Cornell Library and Duke University Press. It was originally created to provide a platform for small scholarly publishers of mathematics and statistics journals to move from print to electronic in a cost-effective way.

Through a combination of support by subscribing libraries and participating publishers, over 70% of the journal articles hosted on Project Euclid are openly available. As of 2018, Project Euclid hosts 1.8 million pages of open-access content.

Our Mission

Project Euclid’s mission is to provide powerful, low-cost online hosting and publishing services for theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics scholarship worldwide. As a non-profit community-driven international partnership of academic libraries, independent and society scholarly publishers, and scholars, Project Euclid actively supports broad, sustainable access to this scholarship.
