ESNBU signs an agreement with EBSCO

Thu, 06 Dec 2018 - 16:57:23 CEST  

Effective December 1, 2018 ESNBU officially signed a non-exclusive agreement with EBSCO, or Elton B. Stephens Co. in full, to index and distribute our content, your published articles, to libraries of all kinds. As you know, EBSCO, for over 70 years, has been offering library resources to customers in academic, medical, K–12, public library, law, corporate, and government markets. First, the journal will be indexed in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), which allows institutions to search a portfolio of journals and magazines, and then it will be placed on a full-text database. Indexing via EDS can take some 1-2 months to be launched.

New DOI Display Guidelines

Wed, 17 Oct 2018 - 8:54:18 CEST  

We are changing over to the new DOI display recommendations

Effective March 2017, Crossref has updated their DOI display guidelines, in part to ensure security (with https). For more details, see ☍ The new recommended format looks like this:

And here’s how that looks in an APA Style reference:

Morey, C. C., Cong, Y., Zheng, Y., Price, M., & Morey, R. D. (2015). The color-sharing bonus: Roles of perceptual organization and attentive processes in visual working memory. Archives of Scientific Psychology, 3, 18–29. ☍

We recommend that you use the new format consistently throughout a reference list. We will begin using the new format in ESNBU from Vol.4, issue 2 forward. But, to clarify, in already published papers, all of the following are currently considered correct APA Style: ☍ ☍doi:10.1037/arc0000014 - i.e. no active link

On the web pages of articles which display the references, we will be retrospectively changing over to the new DOI display in compliance with the Crossref recommendations. Reference Crossref. (2017). Crossref DOI Display. Retrieved from ☍
