Papers Report - Authors Missing & Not in Correct Order?

Postby tshore » Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:32 am

Has anyone else noticed errors with authors in the papers report? I've had a few reports of missing authors and the order not being the same as on the Presentations page. Here is an example:

Screenshot from Presentations Page (ID = 451)
Screen shot 2011-09-16 at 12.08.53 PM.png (11.33 KiB) Viewed 1493 times

Code: Select all
From Papers Report (I cut out a bunch of it to make it more readable):
451   902   Poster   
Chikako      Oda   JP   Graduate     School of Human and Environmental Studies,Kyoto University   chikako.0219 AT hotmail.co.jp      
Shintaro      Funahashi   JP   Kokoro Research Center, Kyoto University   funahashi.shintaro.2z AT kyoto-u.ac.jp
Naoshi      Hiraoka   JP   Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies, Kyoto University   naoshi AT media.kyoto-u.ac.jp                                                                                                                                                         en   Accept Submission               Posted

In this case, the order of authors was changed. The order in the Papers Report is the same as the original order

Another example where the order is incorrect:

Screenshot from Presentations Page (ID = 463)

I think I fixed this, but please check my work. Had to add the following line the the SQL query which begins at line 124 in plugins/reports/papers/PaperReportDAO.inc.php:
Code: Select all
pa.seq AS seq,

and then I made the following changes starting at line 226 in plugins/reports/papers/PaperReportPlugin.inc.php:
Code: Select all
//      $seq = 0;
        foreach($authors as $author) {
//      $seq++;
// MohSho 2011 - authors not always in correct order...
        $seq = $author['seq'];

Also, the missing author problem is something that popped up with one of my 2010 conferences and I can't track down any details of the problem. I wasn't able to solve it at the time.

Just stumbled across this thread. I was surprised to see that no one from PKP had posted here? Is this a bug? Has anyone been able to duplicate it. Has it been fixed in OCS 2.3.4?

Hi Trudy,

This isn't really a bug, its just not the way we implemented the report (I don't think there's any particular reason why or why not). If you'd like this added to OCS, feel free to file an entry on Bugzilla and if you can, also upload a patch file.

I'm not sure about the missing authors; Everything looks okay from a quick test on my end. If you see it happen again, let us know!

Thanks,
Matt

I disagree. I think this should be fixed. If the authors are entered in a certain order and appear in that order on the website, then that's the order they need them to be printed out in the conference program.
