Ideas for plugins in the near future or in recent development.

  • Continuing Education Plugin (See Glenn Hymel's conference presentation.)
  • OxS Document Conversion plugin (using ICE / Docvert / Google Docs)
  • OxS OpenURL resolver plugin; to be ported to Harvester
  • OJS Scholar's Portal / NLM plugin (from UofT)
  • "most viewed articles" block plugin (in the works JPA)
  • "featured articles" block plugin
  • site-wide sidebar plugin in conjunction with the customBlockManager (in the works JPA)
  • categories/countries plugins (assign a country or a category to a journal) (in the works JPA)
  • browse by country/category/alphabetical (with above plugins) (in the works JPA)
  • google search plugin (google site search embedded in OJS) (in the works JPA)
  • site statistics block plugin (in the works JPA)
  • latest issues published block plugin (in the works JPA)
  • site/journal homepage plugin (allow the arranging of blocks on the main section of a page, perhaps with drag-and-drop)
  • A Project Management module could be created and made available to all PKP software. It would combine the features of the Subscription Manager with that of a more general business manager. This module would allow hour figures or other costs to be associated with various parts of the workflow (e.g., a journal article's copyediting hours; a conference's keynote speaker's expenses; etc.). Each copyeditor, proofreader, layout editor, etc. would be required to enter the number of hours spent on their work. The hourly costs could be aggregated for a submission, multiplied by a dollar figure, and produce the cost of the article. This could be combined with each article's cost in an issue to produce a cost of issue report. An article's cost could be divided by its views to produce an interesting cost per view feature. This module would also help conference managers to keep careful account of the event's costs vs its funding.
