University of Utah and Nature Publishing Group join forces to pilot a new publishing model

University

A most interesting announcement came out today from our good friends over at ReadCube. For a quick overview of ReadCube, check out this page and video on their website. A Press Release about today’s announcement can be found here.


Also worth a look at is this short video which takes you through in basic terms what today’s announcement means in practical terms.



Whilst “Instant Access” is not the same as Open Access, this is another noteworthy part of the ongoing transition of the traditional science publishing landscape to where we’re going.

Here at figshare, we are keen to explore and encourage discussion and collaboration about the new models for accessing science, such as this development and other new models of dissemination such as F1000 Reseach and PeerJ.


When asked about his goals and aspirations for the project, Lucas Schlager, Community Manager of Readcube said:

"By offering an easy, affordable way for libraries to supplement the access they already have, we hope that we can close the information gap experienced by many researchers, and provide them with instant access to the information that they need. We're thrilled to have Nature Publishing Group as the first publisher participant in ReadCube Access, and we're working on expanding the program to more libraries and publishers in the near future."

This announcement arrives on a day that is very active in examining the publishing model, with events taking place discussing and debating online science communication such as:

Access to Research: Implementing the Finch Group’s Recommendations
Open access: going for gold? - #icoa
Research Networks: Underpinning Discovery, Supporting Knowledge Transfer - #research12


And that’s just in London! figshare will be at the ‘Open access: going for gold?’ event this evening, and we would love to talk to others who have an interest in this space. As usual, feedback is always welcomed as researchers help to shape what we become. You can get in touch with us via at info@figshare.com or via twitter, facebook or google+.
