Remarq™ Prepares for Initial Launch image

Remarq™, the article-sharing, commenting, annotation, and collaboration tool from RedLink, is preparing for its initial feature-set launch next month. Publishers are facing new and substantial challenges from interaction environments that are well-funded yet built largely on publishers’ goodwill and content. Remarq™ has been designed to give publishers all of this functionality and more, while supporting their businesses by making content-sharing count, providing new tools for editorial engagement, and allowing users a single profile across the journals they know and respect. Features in the initial release, which focuses on user interactions with articles and content, will include: Annotation and private notes: The ability for users to annotate specific words, sentences, paragraphs, figures, or tables with private notes for later. Controlled commenting: The ...

SiteLeads™ Continues to Impress image

Running a technology company, I’m both enthusiastic and skeptical when it comes to what technology can do. There are many who over-promise, yet there are many who deliver beyond what people initially expect. So, when a product like SiteLeads™ launches, I watch that transition from theory to practice carefully. Does it work as planned? Is it generating truly useful leads for publishers? Would I use it if I were the customer? Could I rely upon the underlying approach and technology? Happily, SiteLeads™ continues to exceed expectations in every test we throw at it, which means with every customer utilizing it. That’s where the rubber meets the road, where proof meets pudding. Because the SiteLeads™ technology derives its recommendations from what I call “ground truth” ...

Where We Stand image

RedLink is a small startup designed to help libraries and publishers provide information to their common customers — researchers, teachers, academics, and students. The recent tenor of events in the US is discordant with intellectual and personal freedoms we as Americans and as participants in the scientific and academic world hold dear. From travel bans to attacks on governmental scientific agencies and the scientists working as civil servants, what is happening in the US political system is neither normal nor acceptable. Already, scientists, publishers, and scholars have been kept from traveling to conferences, meetings, and jobs within the United States, often with little or no warning. The chilling effect of the travel ban is palpable, as are the negative effects on ...

Academic Publishing in Europe, 2017 image

The Academic Publishing in Europe (APE) conference is held each January in Berlin. Attracting 200-250 publishers, editors, and librarians from Europe, the UK, and the US predominantly, the conference provides a different view of the publishing world than most conferences held in the US or UK. There is definitely more of an EU feel to the proceedings, from the policy experts speaking about how they are thinking about access and knowledge economy challenges to the overall attendance. This year’s conference was among the largest for the organizers so far. The program had strengths and weaknesses, as all do, but a saving grace of this conference is that the audience feels particularly involved, so the discussions around even an implausible or ...

Kent Anderson at EMUG 2016 image

The funding of research, libraries, and publishers has been under pressure for decades. Research budgets are flat or down, even with recent increases in the US. In Europe, austerity measures have siphoned research funding away. This is happening even as more students are being urged to become trained scientists, creating huge pressures on these individuals, on publishers, and on libraries as publication becomes more competitive. With major economies like China entering the picture, the competition has increased all the more. Libraries find themselves in a pinch, as their share of growing university budgets shrinks. This leads to modest increases in their budgets, if any at all, which cannot keep pace with an explosion in published research. At the 2016 Aries ...
