Nature Publishing Group and Open Access Waivers

The Library has recently had several enquiries from Caltech authors who have submitted manuscripts to journals in the Nature Publishing Group (NPG). NPG is aware of Caltech’s Open Access Policy that was implemented 1/1/2014. Upon acceptance and before publication of a paper, NPG is requiring a waiver from each Caltech author. The waiver is available here. As well, there is a FAQ page with details about the implementation of this new policy. If you have further questions, please email a librarian at library AT caltech.edu

Library Workshop: Patents: Tuesday, March 25, 2:00pm

Patents

Hannah Dvorak-Carbone (Office of Technology Transfer) will present a review of the patenting process. This will be followed by a quick review of patent searching, locating English language patent equivalents, legal status issues, and current awareness techniques by Dana Roth and ample time for questions. For the first time in its history, the U.S. will have a ‘first to file’ patent system, replacing the ‘first to invent’ system, when the America Invents Act came into full force on March 16, 2013. What does this mean for you and for Caltech?

Article linking via Caltech Connect from PubMed Central – issue fixed

Hello,

The reported problem with article information being passed to DocuServe requests from Caltech Connect links on PubMed Central has now been fixed.

Please let us know if any problems persist.

Thank you for your patience!!

Problem linking to articles via CaltechConnect from PubMed

We currently have a problem with CaltechConnect (SFX) when accessed from within PubMed. If you click on the CaltechConnect button after a search in PubMed it is not properly showing whether we have access to that article, nor is it populating DocuServe with the article information. Until we resolve this problem find information on our subscription information via the Find Ejournals link and enter DocuServe requests by going directly to DocuServe and clicking Article under “New Request” on the left column.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have this fixed soon. We are working with the service provider to correct the issue.
