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.

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

  1. Need to handle articles with same first page in same volume

    OpenURL search fails if more than one article with same start page exists in same volume. For example, given that we have http://biostor.org/reference/14149

    Proceedings of the United States National Museum 122(3598): 1-5 (1967)

    I can't add http://biostor.org/openurl.php?genre=article&atitle=New+cyclopoid+copepods+associated+with+the+coral+Psammocora+contigua+%28Esper%29+in+Madagascar&title=Proc+U+S+National+Museum&series=&volume=122&issue=3586&spage=1&epage=32&year=1967&doi=&url=

    as OpenURL returns the first reference.

      First attempt to deal with this adds check that ending page (epage) and issue (“issue”) in database match OpenURL query. If OpenURL string has issue, and this matches the one in the database then we accept the match. If ending pages match, we check that titles have > 90% match (if OpenURL atitle field is set).

    • Add user login

      Add user login. ideally using OpenID with support for gravatars. Would enable users to bypass CAPTCHA, and to see their own edits.

        • Use nomenclators to find new names

          Could modify OpenURL to handle search for page within page range, so that we could use data from nomenclators to determine if a page represented the first publication of a name.
