Re: [EP-tech] Hyperauthorship

Hi John, Martin,

I don't think we've come up against 1000+ yet... but now I'm curious I might see if we have somewhere.

So for the citations we've taken the well trodden path that (I guess) has inspired what John's proposed for the input eg http://researchonline.lshtm.ac.uk/4646366/

@John If you do change the input rendering, I'd be happy to test it with a view to a making releasable plugin.

If you can limit them on the way in, I guess it's a moot point (save for elements xslt gist maybe ;)

Hi Martin,

Interesting approach. The records I'm, looking at all come via Symplectic or Pure - and we could implement some form of limit to the number of authors - and retain any that are 'resolved' (local) authors.


I was thinking of changing the default input rendering for the creator field along these lines:

If there are < LIMIT authors, render input as currently exists

If there are > LIMIT authors, render a static list of them, and enhance with _javascript_ to allow editing of specific entries / re-ordering / searching filtering the list.


This could even be deployed as a separate workflow stage (which only appears when there are > LIMIT authors).


I'll have to see what people here think about limiting the author list on the way in to EPrints - that sounds like a better place to be…

Hi John,

we have a lot of high energy physics or biomedical articles with hundreds or thousands of authors. Usually, those are submitted via CrossRef or PubMed import.

We have adapted the corresponding import plugins to limit the number of authors by a configurable limit (in our case 30). If the limit is exceeded, "et al" is added as the  ($limit+1)th author, the remaining authors are not imported and a warning message is issued. Submitters are then still free to add the remaining UZH authors manually and use et al for authors outside of UZH.

Instead of the DOI plugin, we have developed a CrossRef plugin that uses the CrossRef REST API . It implements the author limitation as well. We decided to go with the CrossRef REST API because funder information can be imported from there.

Best regards,

Has anyone done any work on making the EPrints workflow a bit more sensible when a paper has many authors (hundreds or thousands)?
