The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) and UKSG
announce that the Transfer Code of Practice will now be supported and
maintained by NISO. The Code provides voluntary guidelines for
publishers to follow when transferring journal titles between parties
to ensure that the journal content remains easily accessible by
librarians and readers. NISO has republished Transfer version 3.0 as a
NISO Recommended Practice (NISO RP-24-2015) and will move all
supporting documentation to the NISO website. A NISO Standing
Committee has been established to manage the ongoing support of the
Transfer Code of Practice.

***To learn more about Transfer and the transition to NISO, join us
for an open teleconference call today (Monday, February 9) at 3:00 -
4:00 PM Eastern time. The call is free and anyone is welcome to
participate.  To join, simply dial 877-375-2160 and enter the code:
413 756 9413#. Can’t make the call? A recorded version will be posted
to the NISO website (http://www.niso.org/news/events/2015/telecon/)
within 48 hours.***

The Transfer project was initiated by UKSG in 2006 and the first
version of the Code was released in 2007 in response to issues
identified by the scholarly communications community when journal
titles change platform providers or owners. Publishers and platform
providers have a vested interest in ensuing that their content is
easily accessible. The Transfer Code provides them with the specifics
of how they can make sure that all of their stakeholders can continue
to make the content available with the least amount of disruption.

A very important achievement to date for the UKSG Transfer Working
Group was the creation of the Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service
(ETAS). This public, searchable database helps publishers communicate
journal transfers and makes it easy for librarians and readers to be
notified of journal transfers and to search previous journal transfer
alerts.

The Transfer Code of Practice is available on the NISO website from
the Transfer Standing Committee’s webpage:
www.niso.org/workrooms/transfer/. The ETAS alerting service continues
to be available at: http://etas.jusp.mimas.ac.uk/.
