"The topic of this Nature forum -- the impact of the Web on the publishing of the results of original research -- has, since the emergence of the Internet, filled volumes in the reports of conference proceedings and reams of individual articles. Many of the often arcane and complex socio-economic and technical issues involved are well-trodden paths for a narrow circle of specialists, and excellent in-depth coverage of the issue is regularly provided by specialists outlets such as the D-Lib Forum and the Journal of Electronic Publishing. The main aim of this forum is to bring some of the substance of this Brownian motion of Internet issues to a broader grassroots audience and debate the implications for the future dissemination of scientific information.

In the course of finding sites of interest for this Newsletter, we sometimes come across Web sites which we feel deserve slightly more than a passing mention. Each month we will pick out one or more such sites, and give them a short review. The sites will normally be UK based, may be small or large, and be of interest or potential interest to academics. After lengthy discussions we have decided, with incredible creativity :-), to call these: Nice Web Sites. Details of previous Nice Web Sites are available in the Nice Web Site Archive.
Something a bit different this month. Instead of selecting a Nice Web Site, I'm highlighting what I think are two important articles - well, one is actually an ongoing debate.
A Collaborative Linking Network
This is an article about CrossRef. CrossRef runs a system that enables publishers to assign unique identifiers -- Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) -- to articles and collects standardized metadata so that the identifiers can be retrieved using bibliographic data.

This is an ongoing debate in Nature, on a topic of much importance to academics.
****Wolters Kluwer acquires SilverPlatter****
Wolters Kluwer today announced it will acquire SilverPlatter Information (Boston, United States). SilverPlatter, with annual sales of approximately USD 70 million, is a provider of medical and scientific databases and related software. The company will be combined with Ovid Technologies (New York, United States) in a manner which takes advantage of the complementary strengths of both organizations. The combination of SilverPlatter and Ovid Technologies will be a first class provider of research tools for medical and scientific researchers. The acquisition is in line with Wolters Kluwer’s strategy to expand its electronic offerings in the medical and scientific fields and integrate content with software and services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition of SilverPlatter is subject to regulatory clearance.
SilverPlatter provides search and retrieval technology to medical, academic, corporate and educational researchers worldwide with access to more than 250 electronic reference databases. Its ‘SilverLinker’ product offers more than 2.5 million links to over 6,500 journals and 2 million articles. SilverPlatter has over 11,000 institutional customers worldwide, with particular market strength in academic libraries. The services of SilverPlatter are offered through the Internet, Intranet and local CD ROM solutions. SilverPlatter currently employs some 170 people, and has its main offices in Boston (United States) and London (United Kingdom).
Wolters Kluwer’s main objective with the acquisition and integration of SilverPlatter is to create a comprehensive channel for medical and scientific information. The acquisition of SilverPlatter will more than double the size of Wolters Kluwer’s presence in the rapidly growing market for electronic medical and scientific information. The activities of SilverPlatter and Ovid are complementary in many ways: SilverPlatter has strong sales in the scientific market, while Ovid has its traditional strength in the medical market. SilverPlatter has developed leading market positions in Europe and emerging markets, whereas Ovid is strongest in the United States.

Searching CD-ROM and online information sources
This book is aimed at students of information science and information practitioners. It covers various aspects of searching and retrieval of information from CD-ROM databases and online sources. In this context, online sources include those which are accessible through traditional online hosts such as Dialog and STN, and also those accessible via the Web.
The first part of the book looks at the principles of information searching and the process of information retrieval. Various types of reference sources are discussed, using examples from OPACs, CD-ROMs and online search services. Internet search engines are not covered, as these are seen as being outside the book's scope.
By including, in each chapter, examples of potential sources from the Web, from traditional online hosts and also CD-ROMs, the authors perform a useful service of reminding us of some of the best sources of information, many of which are not freely available.
Chapters 8 to 14 look at information sources for science and technology, social sciences and humanities, business, law, health, standards and patents, and government and institutions. The authors do not cover every version of the sources mentioned (for example, the Applied Science and Technology Index via OCLC FirstSearch, and Dialog are discussed, but not the WilsonWeb version), however their intention is not to produce an exhaustive directory of access methods. As far as I am aware, the examples given are very current (Engineering Village 2 is mentioned, but the changes to the IBM Patent service (now available via Delphion) came too late for inclusion).
An interesting chapter covering trends in electronic information sources, plus seven appendices, listing selected sources on the subjects covered in Chapters 8 to 14, and a fairly extensive bibliography, complete the work.
At almost £40, this book is not cheap, but I would consider it an essential purchase for all libraries which serve students of information science. It will undoubtedly feature in many information retrieval reading lists. Practicing information professionals will probably find its theoretical emphasis less useful, but I would recommend it to them as a reminder of basic principles.
Tips and tricks for website managers
I don't think it would be right for me to review this book, as I am one of the contributors. However, let me quote from the book's cover:
"There are many challenges to Web site management: collecting and collating information, develping a design style, managing updates, and ensuring a consistently interesting, topical and informative site are just some of them. Whether working as a team or individually, Web site managers must frequently develop skills, solutions and services in isolation. This book acts as an invisible support team, with acknowledged experts sharing their experiences through the case studies of specific areas of site development. As well as the expert contributions, this book includes a wealth of advice from the information community, with timely tips provided by over 50 Web and information professionals."
A complete list of new books added to Heriot-Watt University Library is available from the Library News page.
This list exists primarily to disseminateauthoritative and up-to-date news and information about the People's Network project and to encourage discussion within and beyond the public library community on a wide range of topics relating to the implementation and development of the People's Network.
This is a new glossy magazine, the firt issue of which was published at the end of March. It is a fortnightly publication.
I like Webuser. Firstly, I like it because it only costs 99p per issue, unlike some of its competitors which charge three or four Pounds. Secondly, because it is a no-nonsense guide to the best of the net. And lastly, because, although it is obviously aimed at the popular end of the market, it manages to avoid articles about 'bizarre' web sites and other things that I dislike.
New items in Webuser cover topics of general interest, such as virus news, broadband technology developments, and new government sites. New web sites featured include several of interest to readers of IRN, and each comes with a star rating.
The first issue contained articles about shopping, consumer rights, email addresses, car buying sites, building a web site, and newspapers online. It also featured a product test of Adobe Photoshop, and an extended survey of popular search engines with tips on how to make the most of them. It rated Yahoo! higher than my current favourite which is Google.
Webuser is a good UK general Internet magazine.
