More Author Metadata

Postby jalperin » Mon Jan 08, 2007 12:57 pm

Hello All,

I don't know if this is something that others are also interested in, but it seems to me that the author metadata that is currently in OJS is very limited. Especially true for the Corresponding Author (for whom most journals have a mailing address, but OJS has only an email address).

At the very minimum, I think it would be useful to store the author's credentials (degrees).

I may find myself forced to code this for the upcoming migration to OJS2 (we want to be sure to display this information alongside the abstract). Am I alone in wanting this? Is this planned for later versions of OJS? Was it a design choice to keep author metadata at a minimum?

Would there be interest in this being extended for all of OJS? What fields are of interest? For JMIR, i will be adding degrees and multiple affiliations for all authors and a couple of address liines and phone/fax numbers for the corresponding author.
