OCS - Automatic Authors Index

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

OCS - Automatic Authors Index

Postby gmattei » Mon Jul 27, 2009 7:20 am

I need to build an Authors Index to be included at the end of a Book of Abstract.
I searched the documentation but I was not able to find a specific entry for this topic.
I would like to have for each author present in the Conference database an entry like:

Author's last name, Author's first name, ID of the abstract(s) in which he/she is present as an author

Is there an automated way to do this?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi GMattei,

Is this something you want to physically display within OCS, or rather would want a report for? You can use the Papers report plugin to download this information as a .csv file (log in as Conference Manager, and then under the Conference Management home page click "Stats and Reports" for the relevant shceduled conference; and then "Papers report"); if you're a developer, you can also look at how the plugin culls those numbers from the db (take a look at plugins/reports/papers for the necessary files). Please let us know if you have any follow-up questions.
