Editage moves its Chinese website to the Alibaba cloud

(January 18, 2017; Shanghai, China) - Editage announced that it has moved its Chinese website to Aliyun, China’s biggest cloud service provider owned by Alibaba, and signed a contract with DNSPod to obtain faster DNS resolution for its Chinese website. In addition to better security, this move to the Aliyun cloud will enhance the stability and performance of Editage’s Chinese website.

 

Enumerating the benefits of this move, Nishchay Shah, Vice President, Engineering, Technology, Cactus Communications said, “Hosting our website on the Alibaba cloud and shifting to DNSPod were fairly easy decisions for us. With this move to Aliyun, the stability and performance of our website is better, and their customer support resolves issues promptly.” He continued, “We take security and performance very seriously because our clients spend years on experiments before drafting manuscripts full of sensitive information. Hosting in China helps us cater to our Chinese authors faster and hosting with Aliyun helps us understand technology in China better.”  

 

The need for ethical author services is expected to grow exponentially in China. A high-performing website will enable Editage to cater to their Chinese clientele more efficiently. Cactus Communications is focused on staying abreast with technological advancements and is actively growing its technology department to tackle any challenges that the business might face in the future.

Cactus Communications launched Editage Insights in November 2013 with the dream of providing a platform for bringing the scholarly community closer. Since its inception, Editage Insights has become much more than a platform; it is now a comprehensive educational resources portal for authors from all over the world. A small team of passionate writers and editors has grown into a much larger group of experts, who are trusted advisors to ESL authors worldwide. Over the past three years, Editage Insights has successfully gained global readership and built a strong community of researchers, editors, publishers, and medical professionals.

However, Clarinda Cerejo, Editor-in-chief, Editage Insights, insists that this is just the beginning and her team has bigger plans for the future, “We want Editage Insights to become the largest and the most trusted community of researchers globally. We received some amazing anniversary wishes from authors that show that our efforts are clearly making a difference.”  

 

On turning three in November 2016, Editage Insights launched an in-depth survey with the aim of gathering the opinions of all researchers worldwide and presenting them to publishers and important decision makers in the industry.

Editage attempts to level the playing field for Chinese research through continuous educational efforts

(January 05, 2017; Philadelphia, PA, USA) - Editage has been conducting educational seminars about good publication practices for the academic community in China. Dr. Donald Samulack, President, U.S. Operations, Editage/Cactus Communications recently visited Beijing, China to share information with authors and journal editors about irresponsible publication practices. This tour is timely as retractions globally are on a rise with plagiarism and data fabrication being the main reasons.

The lecture series began at China Science Press, where young professional editors attended a presentation by Dr. Samulack about how they can apply global best practices to spot irregular and in some cases unethical author behavior. Later, at the Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), managing editors of journals published by CAS got together for a talk on the damage that predatory journals and fraudulent publication practices inflict on the integrity of the scholarly literature.

The final stop was at the Workshop on Scientific Publishing for Clinical Microbiologists in China hosted by the Society of Microbiology and Immunology of the Chinese Medical Association in collaboration with the American Society for Microbiology. The three-day workshop was conducted at the Peking University Health Science Center and was attended by 234 editors, scientists, and clinicians from 24 provinces across China. Besides author resources and microbiology-specific discussions, fraudulent practices such as ‘authorship for sale’ and bogus impact factors of predatory journals were discussed at length with this large group. Other prominent speakers included Professor Alexander McAdam, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology, who spoke about ‘The publication process and priorities at JCM’ and Professor Barbara Goldman, director of the American Society of Microbiology, who spoke about ‘Publishing ethics – The ASM journals’ approach.’

The Chinese government has taken a tough stance on scientific misconduct. Recently, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) has disclosed information about 117 cases of scientific misconduct and reaffirmed that it has zero-tolerance for such practices. Moreover, the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) has been proactively implementing a regulatory framework to prevent behavior that might lead to misconduct in the future. Editage is committed to helping researchers globally deal with the pressure to publish and to overcome language barriers in scholarly communication. By conducting an increasing number of webinars and workshops in over 40 countries each year, Editage aims to assist the academic community in communicating their science effectively.
