Book metadata is published as part of the book review submit

Postby jlaherty » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:17 am

Hello,
In setting up the Books for Review plugin I noticed in Mode 1 that: Book metadata is published as part of the book review submission.
However, I can't see after testing a lot of options how the book metadata (# of pages, isbn, publisher, book language, publisher URL, description, book cover image, etc.) shows up anywhere when the book review article is published.

We're running OJS 2.3.6.0.

Is there a bug? Or what is the intention of this supported workflow in the plugin?

Many thanks,
Jennifer Laherty

Hi Jennifer,

That plugin isn't maintained by our core team, but IIRC it supports a limited set of metadata that was useful to a particular publisher. I believe there is some 3rd-party work going into making the metadata much more flexible but I wouldn't expect it to be released soon.

Hi Alec,

Do you know if there have been any changes made to the Books for Review plugin since this was posted over a year ago? Is there still no way to display the book metadata when the book review article is published?

Thanks,

Hi Shayna,

We've actually just deprecated the Books For Review plugin in favour of a new Objects For Review plugin, contributed by the Free University of Berlin; it'll be released in OJS 2.4.6 but if you want to get a head start it's available here: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8741

It's much more flexible than the previous plugin.

Hi Shayna,

Unfortunately I haven't implemented this feature in the new Object For Review plug-in yet, but this is not a problem, I will do it. Could you just please tell me what do you think would be good place to display those metadata? Would it be good to display them below the abstract?

The very first and still rough documentation of the Object For Review plug-in is here: http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title= ... umentation

Thanks!

Hi Bozana,

Yes I think that's the right place (below the abstract).

Thanks for pointing me to the documentation. I'm eager to try out the plugin once it is released in the next version of OJS.

Thanks,
Shayna
