I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Make possible submission of bulk citations enriching set of articles for given field

    Being able to submit plain text version of a bibliography with wide coverage for a given field of study (say taxonomy of a genus or family) would add batches of known articles to the set already known to the system. Any one-time processing of such articles would be performed in a "batch mode" improving statistics for the areas for which such bibliographies were submitted. Searches for information on individual taxa would be linked to a (nearly) maximal set of articles. in literature which is otherwise difficult to access. When a nomenclator is constructed (for example) all the articles utilized should…

    • Add paging to the search result page

      A search for 'Coleoptera' gives >500 results. See http://biostor.org/name/2725091

        Damn those pesky insects. Yes, paging is clearly needed, as is some way of ordering the results by “relevance”. Taxonomic coverage may be a useful criterion — presumably if you search for a higher taxon name you’d like the top hits to be articles that cover a lot of that taxon, rather than, say, a single species.

        • Make the search results page less minimal

          I only got one hit from 'Bombus' as a search term. The heading 'Search' could be 'Search results' as on the first search I was not sure I had found any results at all. You may want to offer a hint that other searches are possible, e.g. Bombus Lucorum and Bombus Pascuorum also yield results.

          • Get a captcha service that works! I can't correct a huge error!

            I typed in the two words 10 times, listened to a minute of nonsense and still am unable to fix a taxonomic term.

              The recaptcha API has changed, breaking the form. I’ll investigating fixing this. Meantime if you need to edit something and have a Mendeley account you can log in and fix the problem, or leave a comment on the page with the error and I will fix the problem.

            • Need to handle books

              Need to be able to search, edit, and store books. For example,

              Rodrıguez, L.O., and W.E. Duellman. 1994. Guide to the frogs of the Iquitos region, Amazonian Peru. The University of Kansas Natural History Museum Special Publication 22: 1–80

              is in BHL as http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/title/7937 (ISBN 0-89338-047-4). To find this we need to handle title searches.

              • Support references that are not in BHL

                There are many journals that are online (some Open Access) that have valuable content (such as Zootaxa). Can we add these? Would need a different viewer to handle PDFs.
