Suggestions for improvement
Last modified: 2009-12-04 12:10:15 PST
Here are some ideas of improvement we consider important to the system, to be
more compliant with Scientific Groups all over the world, as they may help
provide information necessary to qualify journals for harvestign, quality
control, etc. Please comment on this as you may find other possible solutions or
argue/discuss the need for these items.
1 - Article Citation and Reference Input mechanismo for Authors and Editorial
Team (allowing for indexing, cross-referencing and other services to be provided
by future harvesters...)
2 - Customizable Review Form (we are planning to learn to do this with Alec when
3 - Discipline Form Field in Journal Configuration For classification purposes
6 - Institution Form Field in Journal Configuration For classification purposes
5 - Allow Editorial team to define specific dates for:
- Edition Publication Date
- Article Publication Date
- Article Submission Date
allowing an easier previous edition publication via interface (no XML required!)
More suggestions, hopefully you'll read them.
I could try to compile them all into one if you'd like...
Improvements to the About page:
- When creating links to the About page, some CSS could add borders, highlights or some other mechanism to create a visual feedback. On short pages and large screens, anchors are not enough, as there is no space to scroll down and the page anchor has visually no effect, although it is there.
- Allow managers to order custom/all items in the about page as they see fit.
- Page could be dismembered, displaying only the content desired, or all if the user clicks on a link. Some items are too short while other are very long, and when reading sometimes we miss the content. This would include a new click, but may provide a cleaner interface.
