California Digital Library, Bepress Announce Partnership. (Internet Publishing Today)


The California Digital Library (CDL; http://www.cdlib.org) and The Berkeley Electronic Press (bepress) have announced a partnership designed to advance innovations in scholarly communication. Through the partnership, the CDL will make a suite of electronic publishing tools from bepress available to University of California researchers. The tools enable rapid and lowcost creation, management, and online publication of electronic journals, discussion papers series, and other electronic forms of scholarship.

According to the announcement, the partnership is an important development for the library's eScholarship program (http://escholarship.cdlib.org), which is actively supporting new electronic publications and services for tobacco-control research, environmental science, international and area studies, and dermatology research, among others. The newly forged partnership will extend new capabilities to those and additional fields.

According to the announcement, the CDL and bepress have similar motivations and visions for improving scholarly communication, including creative use of technology to quickly, efficiently, and cheaply distribute research results. Access to research will be enhanced by rapid dissemination; by nearly unlimited additional materials such as images, animations, and original datasets; and by automating much of the editing and peer-review process.

"We have created a range of tools that are ideally suited for this type of partnership," said Robert Cooter, co-CEO of The Berkeley Electronic Press. "The primary goal of our company is to place the publishing power in the hands of the individual researcher. Our relationship with the California Digital Library ensures that cutting-edge research will be more readily available with lower barriers of access. We are quite pleased to have the insight of CDL and its member communities to help shape our future efforts. …
