Atypon Unveils Figshare Integration in Literatum 14.1

SANTA CLARA, California and LONDON, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Atypon® and Figshare today announced a partnership to make authors' supplemental data more discoverable on publishers' Literatum-powered websites. Publishers on Literatum 14.1, the newest generation of Atypon's flagship platform for professional and scholarly publishers, can now embed tables, datasets, videos, and other supplemental material from Figshare on article pages in Literatum.

First implemented for Taylor & Francis, this new service enables users to view supplemental information hosted by Figshare alongside the article in Literatum via the Figshare widget, which renders the supplemental material on the publisher's website. Users who visit this article on Taylor & Francis Online, for example, can watch a related video hosted by Figshare and embedded on the page.

In addition to enhancing article pages on the publisher's site, Figshare also provides publishers with their own Figshare portal where users can browse and filter the supplemental material based on the type of data and the impact. The content is also easily discoverable from search engines. This gives academics other ways to find datasets, videos and other research outputs in their research area that may have previously been hidden in the supplemental data.

Taylor & Francis's Figshare portal currently hosts over 1,400 supplemental files. Every file is easily citable with a DataCite DOI allocated at the point of publication and stored under a Creative Commons License.

"Supplementary information is critical to the research process, and Figshare's service allows us to make this material discoverable to our users," said Gillian Howcroft, Director of eProducts at Taylor & Francis. "We are pleased to collaborate with Figshare and Atypon to roll out this valuable service on Taylor & Francis Online."  

"We are excited to facilitate Figshare integration in Literatum for Taylor & Francis," said Jonathan Hevenstone, Senior VP of Business Development at Atypon. "We look forward to supporting other publishers who are interested in this service."

Mark Hahnel, founder of Figshare, added: "It's a privilege to be collaborating with Taylor & Francis and Atypon. Research outputs can take many forms, and we are keen on partnering with Atypon to help publishers improve the dissemination and discoverability of all scholarly research."

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.
