Bibliography Plugin Documentation¶
We're developing a Plugin to manage project's and user's bibliographical entries. In the issue tracker it is named feature_36.
- Ongoing miscellaneous review notes from testing during development
- Plugin's Alpha Version Requisites and Notes
Objective and Philosophy¶
Projects hosted on code.soundsoftware.ac.uk are usually associated with academic publications (papers, articles, etc). These often offer a strong theoretical background to the code that's being hosted on this site, and many times are the only way users can understand what's happening under the hood for a specific project. On the other hand many researchers are now adopting a "reproducible research" philosophy, in which they not only publish the paper/article itself, but also the code and/or data that supports such publication.
The main idea behind this module is to be able to provide a service that ties both features together, making it easy for researchers to make their source code and publications available on the same platform.
Since Redmine is a project-oriented platform, it makes sense that the publications can only be created, edited, deleted, etc in the project's scope.
The following permissions were created:
Model that "ties" the authors and publications models together. It contains relation-specific information:
name_on_paper: author's name on that specific publication;
order: author's order in that publication;
institution: author's institution when the publication was published;
NOTE: upload the class UML.
Tying it all togheter¶
This is the complete documentation used to create the plugin:
There should be two main ways to browse publications:
General Publications View¶
All the publications published in the website.
Project Publications View¶
All the publications related to a specific project.
In the My Page, there should be a "box" with a list of all the publications added by the user and/or publications where the user is an author
