Dear PKP group,
As an editor reading the prior posts here, I can already tell I am way out of my depth in programming, code and computer science. But, here goes.
Our little journal (JECAR) was launched in 2004 under BioMed Central. When BMC ceased to publish JECAR in 2008, we moved the journal to SE -- which started out OK. However, the formatting of our published articles on the "Archive" page of the SE site is slightly different than what BMC had used, in this small but significant way:
The citations for our papers lists YEAR;volume:issue number. BMC did it this way -- YEAR;volume:article number [page numbers are not for citation purposes]
This variance in citation style has been THE reason no JECAR publications have been accessioned into PMC since we switched publishers. Its a migration issue that, thus far, has totally cripled us because our papers can't get into PubMed Central until this is resolved. Understandable, our authors have not been happy about this and our editorial board is questioning the wisdom of going w/SE in the first place. I would appreciate any insights regarding how this can be changed...it's probably a simple thing but just need some guidance.
Thank you VERY MUCH !!
