Reviewing interests and Masthead

Postby theodore » Wed May 16, 2012 8:59 am

hello, i am new here!

is it possible to make showable to the others the Reviewing interests of user? for example, when click in the user profile in the masthead, to appear there?

In general, apart from the about region, I do not see the "common" way that we can click on any registered user name and see his profile... why is that?

thnx!

Hi Theodore,

There is an easy way to get some information to appear next to editors' names in the masthead. To do so you need to edit (as Journal Manager) each editor's user profile information. The information you include as the editor's affiliation will appear next to their name in the masthead. When a user clicks on an editor's name in the masthead, a pop-up will appear with their name, affiliation, and also the information in their user bio statement. So for our editors I include "Expertise: insects" (or whatever the editor's expertise is) which appears. You could also include their expertise in their affiliation section of their user profile so it would show up without having to click on their names.

You can see how this looks on our journal's masthead:

thank for reply, Jay!
however, i do not get the following: why should i transmit the "Reviewing interests" section to the bio statement, just to be showable??
If so, what is the purpose of Reviewing interests section? i just want to make showable the Reviewing interests section to that pop-up window, without moving it to the bio-statement. Is this possible?

And why the only way to see a user's profile, is through masthead?? we can't see an author's profile for example in the "current" section by clicking on the article author's name??

I would prefer to be like this forum, where when you see my name anywhere, you can also see my profile by clicking on it.

cheers,
theo

hello again,
i try to make the reviewing interests appear to the user profile in the "about" section.
i see that the form is created by the AboutHandler.inc.php, but this file does not connect directly to the base to gather the args...

i guess that it is the "function editorialTeamBio($args)" that does the job, but it is more complex that i thought...
any help??

i just want to put an extra field
reviewing interests: BLAH BLAH BLAH

Hi Theodore,

I can't help you with modifying code to get reviewing interests viewable. But I can tell you the purpose of the reviewing interest section though. It is to search for suitable reviewers for manuscripts received. If you have many reviewers (dozens to hundreds) registered with your journal, being able to search by article keywords for suitable reviewers is useful. You also asked about being able to show authors' bio information for their articles - I think there is a plugin tool that shows authors' bio statements at the side of their articles' abstract page, but I've never used the plugin so I don't know much about it.
