citation assistant: tracking issue for future citation editor improvement ideas
Last modified: 2010-11-05 05:10:57 PDT
The following is a list of ideas that were deferred and will not be part of the initial citation editor release.
- on import of citations: implement a diff algorithm that only deletes references if they're absent from the new raw list or if they've changed.
- some bug in ParaCite related to character encoding (see quotations). (@Florian: I still see this after your fixes)
- a chapter in book that is found in worldcat is being replaced with only the book info
e.g. Hall, Stuart. “Cultural Identity and Diaspora.” In Theorizing Diaspora: A Reader. Ed. Jana Evans Braziel and Anita Mannur. Bodim, UK: Blackwell P, 2003. 233-46.
- when pulling in data from crossref, looks like & is being escaped.
- does parsCit detect the Eds. in a citation? seems to have parsed the following correctly, but the eds does not appear in results:
e.g. Federici, S., Caffentzis, G., & Alidou, O. (Eds.). (2000). A thousand flowers: Social struggles against structural adjustment in African universities. Trenton, NJ: African World Press. We should make a RegEx for this. its a simple and standard Web citation
e.g. ICT4D Collective. (2009). Information and Communication Technologies for Development. Available: http://www.ict4d.org.uk/
- Something went wrong with crossref result (shows up as source but is blank except for publication type):
e.g. OECD. (2007). Science, technology, and industry scoreboard, 2007. Paris: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
- I think something is wrong with the RegExs. I am only ever getting the URL's parsed. they should work for some journals no?
- Check how ParaCite is treating & in author names. I think there is another encoding problem.
- problem with "Available at" in raw citation (removing gives better results)
- implement pre-emptive loading
- provide auto-complete for all fields, using all sources whenever a structured source is not pre-set (write a special handler that draws results together dynamically from sources)
- would like the option to revert to the original citation, in case i've played around with it for too long (just reload by emulating a click on the current list entry)
- Replace approval marker with a green check sign.
- implement context menu within Google Scholar and author's version of the citation to add fields via context menu.
- Implement ordering feature in citation list (arrows up / down to move citations).
- Show approved citation in list. Show in list whether we show the original or the approved version. Insert text in mouseover "approve to see generated version". Insert "[Currently Editing]" into mouseover for current-item. Requires better citation output style support (e.g. via CSL?)
- Move the editing symbol for raw citations besides the label (Original Citation Text).
Further todos identified while implementing #5157:
- when we have multiple form errors in the citation editor then only one of them is displayed
- write test for XSLTransformationFilter, GenericMultiplexerFilter, GenericSequencerFilter
- add PHP XSL-extension to runtime requirements for NLM filters
- add perl command and modules to runtime requirements for Paracite filter (requires a way to identify perl modules, probably by executing a system command which would be a new runtime requirement type setting)
- make sure that runtime requirement problems result in useful error messages displayed to the end user (test this in citation editor)
* Implement a progress bar while citations are being processed in the background.
* Implement <collab> element.
* only strip "." from the article title and leave all other punctuation, e.g. "!", "?", etc.
Reimplement ParsCit with new web service, see http://wing.comp.nus.edu.sg/parsCit/wing.nus.wsdl, this also provides a document parsing service which we could use for meta-data extraction when we start working on transforming documents to XML.

> [for journal article]:
Vocabulary-based autofill fields should show the first 10 entries when the field comes into scope (entering it or clicking on it).
Feedback on save should be shown near the save button so that the feedback is visible even if the top of the editor is not (=scrolled away). We could also implement an additional "dirty" pattern so that the Save button only appears when changes have been made. This would also enable us to issue a warning when cancel is clicked or the user navigates away from a citation without saving those changes.
Export should be possible even when not all citations have been approved. A warning should show at the top of the export screen that not all citations are displayed rather than blocking export altogether with partial approval.
