In Attendance

Quick Updates

  • Question Every Month
    • What have you been working on lately?
      • Dulip : ORCID Plugin, Conceptualize OJS 3 Update, Lens developments
      • Chris: OCD
      • James: GDPR report; Stats Handbook; documentation framework
      • Kenton: OJS 3.x upgrades
      • Alex: Upgrading SciELO's test instance to v3.1.1; v2.x had slow performance issues last week, solution found: change read/write priority
      • Alec: Automatic PDF document conversion and Hypothes.is in the workflow
      • Clinton: Spam commenter(s) abusing a hosted journal despite ReCAPTCHA v2 and email verification.
      • Svantje: proposal for EU project
  • Question of the Month
    • Let's talk about preprints: author submissions and institutional repositories and peer review
      • Dulip : preprints give time for technical staff to explore the manuscripts beforehand and to get ready for challenges.
      • Chris: We are using CommentPress and Commons in a Box for shared development of scholarly output; I also used to be part of a conspiracy to push toward post-pub peer review and metajournals, but the ScienceOnline meltdown took ScienceSeeker down with it
      • James: NTR on this question.
      • Alex: the discussion and outcomes is happening as we speak and we don't know yet all the impacts of preprints and the peer review process as we know it. Generally speaking, everyone agrees that peer review as we know it will change; Journal roles might get shifted from "publishers" to "validators"

GDPR Compliance

Release Progress

Translation

  • Keeping `ojs-stable-3_1_1` and `omp-stable-3_1_1` as close to `master` as possible via cherry-picking until the codebases start to diverge (probably soon).

Documentation

  • Surprise: gitbook moved all our documentation to a "legacy" subdomain
  • Already working to replace it

UI/UX

  • Reviewed the results of the last round (thanks as always UofA); fixed some already, filed others in github.
  • Considering emails/notifications for an upcoming round (needs consideration of how).
