Enhanced support for online book reviews

July 11th, 2014 by  | Comments Off on Enhanced support for online book reviews

With the support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation; the American Anthropological Association (AAA), Freie Universität Berlin, and the Public Knowledge Project will work together to enhance OJS to better support online book reviews. The new functionality will build on the work done by FU Berlin, who provided the original iteration of the Objects for Review plugin. Once released, the plugin will be available to any discipline or journal using OJS software. With it, publishers will upload book descriptions into the system along with digital versions that will be electronically available to authorized reviewers. Reviewers will then upload their reviews into the database for approval and eventual publication online.
