Recent News From the Sciences

BMC launched a new blog, On Society, which features “new research and commentary exploring the many facets of what it means to live in society.” (For example, its ninth post covers mortality and survival in Game of Thrones.)

Altmetric released The 2018 Altmetric Top 100, which is contextualized on its blog. The top three most-mentioned scholarly articles published in the past year are “Mortality in Puerto Rico After Hurricane Maria,” “The Spread of True and False News Online,” and “Alcohol Use and Burden for 195 Countries and Territories, 1990–2016.”

Springer Nature and Publons entered a partnership to help “improve the peer review process and enable peer reviewers to receive recognition for their contribution.”

BMJ’s new OA journal, BMJ Open Science, partnered with ScienceOpen “to promote best practices in preclinical and basic biomedical research with an interactive featured collection on the platform.”

EDP Sciences’ journal Astronomy & Astrophysics (A&A) signed a 2-year transformative OA agreement with the Max Planck Society whereby “funds previously paid by the Max Planck Digital Library for subscriptions will, instead, be converted into a publishing fund, enabling corresponding authors from the Max Planck Institutes to publish their articles open access in A&A, and at the same time, granting access to the journal’s content to all Max Planck researchers.”

Nature turns 150 in 2019. Take a look back at its history here. “Nature is known for its original research as well as its news journalism and commentary. Today this is spread across different formats, but the goal of the coverage remains the same: to help readers make sense of the world of science; to help them in their work and in their careers; and to help them to assess the position of science in the context of society.”
