Make your data and papers open via Symplectic

Open Access and Open Data are changing: Share everything via Symplectic

Demo of new system in the Pfizer Lecture Theatre for members of the Department of Chemistry on 28th February at 13:15

img_symplecticbenefits_v4-20170215

The current Open Access and Open Data services are being integrated with Symplectic Elements, which will bring many benefits to researchers, administrators and the Open Access and Open Data staff. The new system is live and we are asking researchers at the Department of Chemistry to start using it now. The benefits of the new system include:

  • you can deposit your data and articles in one place
  • you will instantly receive a placeholder DOI for data
  • your outputs get into the repository quicker, which increases their visibility
  • you enter the information about your publication once but it is used in many systems saving you time in the future
  • better reporting capabilities for the Open Access/Data, which means more accurate reports for Departments, Faculties and Schools
  • all research outputs can be uploaded to the repository via the new system

Come and see the new system being demonstrated and find out more about using it for all your research outputs. The demo will take approximately 30 minutes and there will be time for questions and answers.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Open access: Cambridge University Press open for business

This new initiative looks like it applies to all subject areas.

Cambridge University Press (CUP) is launching a new ‘Open Access Monograph Publishing Service’ offering authors a way to publish their books via open access in a fairly priced way.

This service gives authors the option of publishing their work under the Gold Open Access model, supporting the Press’s mission to disseminate knowledge at the highest international levels of excellence.

The standard charge for publication of books under the Gold Open Access model at CUP is £6,500 ($10,000/€9,000) for titles of up to 120,000 words. The charge has been set at this level in recognition of ongoing print sales, but as these diminish the business models and pricing levels may change.

CUP also supports Green Open Access Archiving across books and journals. This new policy allows authors of monographs and certain other books to post portions of their work on personal websites and repositories without compromising any aspect of the publishing…
